A few days ago I signed up to a certain website and had no problems, but since then, I've been back to that website three times and all three times - as soon as the site loads my machine instantly hard crashes - the screen freezes, cursor doesn't move and I'm forced to reset. This has NEVER happened to me before in 15 years of using Firefox! The first two crashes were in Firefox v76, and the third crash was v77, so I guess it's not version-specific.

Each time I restart firefox, my profiles.ini file has been deleted. It messes up other software too.

I'm going to avoid using that site again, but I'd like to report this somehow to the developers. What's the best way to do this? I went to Buzilla but I couldn't see any way to report bugs there.

Note that I am not going to do any troubleshooting as I do not want to take any risk of another crash.

So on Win 7 you can put into your search kind:=picture and it will show you every image file on your PC from png to bmp to jpg to gif.

Can I do the same thing in the firefox history search and find all image types in one go?

Is there someway I can type in a keyword in the history search like kind:=picture and just get ever image type?

I use Firefox as my browser to log into my.yahoo home page. A few days ago I noticed when logged into my yahoo account that I would keep having to re-log in even though I checked to box with AT&T to say logged in for 2 weeks. This is only happening to my email, portfolio and calendar windows. Part two is I cannot log into my yahoo/AT&T home page from my Firefox app on my iPhone. This also started a few days ago. All updates for Firefox and iOS have been installed. Tried to contact AT&T but the phone wait times have been 40+ minutes and they have not resolved anything.

I'm on 76.0.1 and Firefox for some reason stopped showing youtube thumbnails. Other browsers show them perfectly fine but since Firefox is my main browser I would appreciate some help with this problem. Exactly this issue: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1271112 As soon as I delete the site-specific configuration data, from the History option on bar menu, the thumbnails come back inmediately, no reload needed. But when reload the tab, or open a new one, the thumbnails dissapear again. Thanks in advance for the help.

Hello, I am trying to figure out how to prevent the dialog box from prompting me each time I open a pdf attachment. Under applications for PDF I have selected the action to Use Nitro Pro. However, each time I try to open a pdf attachment from my email, I still receive the dialog box; What should Firefox do with the file? Nitro Pro is the default under open with and the "Do this automatically..." is checked. I cannot figure out why the file isn't opening into Nitro without the prompt? Does someone know how to set the options so the pdf opens into the application without being prompted by the dialog box?

Thanks so much, Candie

I'm trying to set up my PS4 Pro machine that I just purchased, but the following is what I got when PS4 Pro sent out the Email. I checked and I am hooked up to the internet according to the PS4 Pro, all systems read successful except the following won't allow for me to finish the installation. I copied and pasted exactly what the Email says after I click on "Verify"

"Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to click.txn-email.playstation.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

click.txn-email.playstation.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem."

Hello,

Firefox 76.0.1 is causing me problems...

For example if I call a PHP program to log out, I use the JavaScript command:

function Logout() {

 self.location = "Root.php?LogOff=Y"

}

No problem there, but when I want to log back in I use:

<form name='detail' method='Post' onsubmit='Root.php'> <input type='text' name='UserId' class='Full' style='border: 0;'> <input type='Password' name='Password' class='Full'>

(The class Full, just sets the width to 100% as this is in a table)

The the JavaScript is simply:

function LogIn() {

 document.detail.submit();

}

Seems simple enough, but the Root.PHP receives:

 LogOff -> Y
 UserId -> <name>
 Password -> <password>

Not what I was expecting!

The only other thing of note is that I have started using local.storage to save information, and this too passes information from previous calls.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Richard Gamester
