Hi everyone!

I have have a problem when typing e-mails in an hotmail.com-account. Almost every second word is underlined with a red wavy line. It marks spelling mistakes and makes suggestions for a different spelling. I do not need spell check and even do not want it. It's very annoying.

I use Windows 7.

I have deactivated spell check in both Firefox and Outlook already and also have restarted Firefox after several changes. But the red lines are still there.

Does anyone have any idea what else I could try?

THANKS A LOT for any tips and advice in advance.

I am using Windows 7 64bit. For some time I have noticed that in about 50% of cases Firefox prevents the system from shutting down in hibernate mode. Instead, the Windows login dialog appears again. If I terminate Firefox before shutting down the system, the system will shut down correctly in hibernate mode. Any idea what that could be?

Best regards,

Hi firefox community,

I've been using firefox forever and so all my logins and passwords have been saved in the browser. For the past two days I noticed that firefox couldn't 'connect to my account', which has never happened before - I was logged in ever since my firefox account was created. My current logins have been active, but when I tried to log into a website with a previously saved login and password - there was nothing. I then logged back into my firefox account, but all my logins and passwords are still gone. I tried manual sync, still nothing.

I am not sure if it happened after a specific update - I didn't notice when exactly I was 'logged out'.

I've been using Firefox for more than an year to access Twitter on my pc without any problems. Suddenly since last week I can open neither Twitter home page nor any other link referring to Twitter. I didn't change any settings on the browser. Any click on Twitter after Google search only opens a blank page. Doesn't Firefox support web Twitter anymore ? I can have regular access on my phone or on an old pc using another browser.

    Mozilla Firefox is my default web browser since it was established. I never had any problems with it until now. It is this baffling sound issue. Firefox will not play any sound. At first I noticed that some adds on Youtube videos were without sound but I took no action. Yesterday I noticed that no sound will play on Firefox browser. I have no issues with my sound card or audio issues of any kind. Google Chrome plays sounds normally, as well as the Edge, this issue is only when I use Mozilla Firefox. I spent most of the time yesterday and today on trying to solve this issue but with no success. I tried every solution i could find on the internet but no joy. Firefox just don't play any sounds. As Firefox is my preferred, default web browser this thing is especially frustrating. Does anybody have a solution for this problem? Please help! I really don't want to go and use other web browsers, I love Firefox and I donate to it regularly.

    Apparently randomly, about every 2-7 days, all my extensions become disabled with no option to enable them again. I delete the compatibility.ini and all extensions.* files and the extensions are then enabled again.

    I have tried creating new profiles, but it keeps happening. I have scanned for viruses. I have the latest versions of the extensions.

    I sometimes *need* to run Firefox ESR v52.8.1 (64-bit) in parallel. I wonder if that could be the cause..?
