When wanting to play a game it is said that the AdBlocker should be put off first. My steps are go to the main menu, add-ons and watch the list of my personal add-ons. I have no Adblocker in my settings in add-ons. Secondly there are many Ad Blockers and it is not said which one.

So where is this question coming from, from Mozilla itself? Anyway how do I make the Adblocker switched off then when there is no button shown at all? Might there be a failure in the provider of the game?

I get error message from a game I play on Facebook that freezes my game & I have to refresh it. Message says to check my browser for java script. I really don't understand the message lol. Hope someone can answer my question. The game is Bingo Story and I have to say I get a lot of freezes. Y'all should teach their developers how things are done to fix freezing. Thanks

I wanted to change my History preferences to "Firefox will never remember history." After I select that, it prompts me to restart Firefox and I do. But when it boots back up, none of my add-ons are visible on the toolbar. I tried to restore customization settings back to default and uninstalled and reinstalled all of the add-ons but none of that worked. They all come back and function as soon I change the History preferences back to "Firefox will remember history."

My question is, is this normal Firefox behavior or is this a bug? If it's normal and I'm missing and obvious detail, please let me know.

Upon installation of the newest versions (v83) of Firefox, Firefox became unresponsive: Unable to click weblinks, scroll, or even click on GUI menu bar options. Restarting in Safe Mode, refreshing, and uninstall/re-install of Firefox failed to solve these issues. Additional troubleshooting involved disabling accessibility, disabling DNS prefetch, adjusting memory cache, disabling network proxy, and etc. as put forth in various forum threads.

Only successful solution was to roll back to version 79 (Last known good version.)

I run Firefox, Firefox Nightly, and Firefox Developer Edition. This allows me to update one interface at a time, while retaining at least one active known good interface in reserve.

Why won't the bookmark in 'Other BookMarks' go away when I 'move' it (drag and drop) to where I want it in my saved bookmark directories? This is a copy not a move and I want a move function.

Why can't I delete a BookMark from 'Other BookMarks' without the same bookmark getting deleted where I sorted it (there is a link that shouldn't be there).

both these issues make it impossible to manage 'Other Bookmarks' and keep it tidy and minimal

Firefox is my default browser in every setting page I can find, including Win10, and right now I have three FF windows open (one private). But when I click a link in a Thunderbird email, it opens in a brandnew FF window, and every subsequent link will open in that fourth window rather than any of the three old ones I am actually using. I just don't see any FF or TB setting that says "Open link in existing window"! Of course, I am missing something...

Hello,

I installed a proxy on Firefox. On the website facebook.com when I click on a button that open a new firefox window to connect my instagram account to my facebook page, it opens a white page with "about:blank" URL instead of the instagram registration page. What does it mean and what am I supposed to do to solve it?

Hi, Since yesterday Firefox won't play any live video streams on any website. An HTML5 error message shows up.

I've tried upgrading Firefox, disabling Add ons, starting in safe mode, completely uninstalling and starting from scratch and installing and deleting Adobe flash as a last resort.

I made sure everything was up to date on my laptop and they play no problem on other browsers. I just can't work out what's wrong with Firefox.
