This generally happens with facebook. A small window pops up on top of the fb content. It has an X in the top right corner, a line across the middle, and a "close" button in the bottom right corner.

I've added some extra code to automatically show the correct language to visitors based on their location settings. This is working properly for the people who have checked it and they are only seeing the correct language, but the CODE is visible on the webpage when I check it on my own computer. I recognise it must be a Firefox setting on my computer, but can not determine which setting it is. Any help is appreciated.

Since the most recent update, opening a new tab does not show my top sites, it just shows a blank page. Top Sites is set to my home page. I saw another user had the same issue but uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox did not fix it for me. How can I fix this bug? It's been giving me many headaches since I use top sites to access my most used webpages when opening new tabs.

I get this error message almost daily when I try to access Natwest. I know I can fix it by clearing cache but then I have to reset all the autofill data, re-enter search criteria, etc. I find it hard to believe there is any problem with Natwest's security set up? Is there a simple fix for this, please?

When I updated from FF v60.01 64-bit to v61.0.1 on my Desktop with Win7 SP1 64-bit Firefox ignores my Users\... Profiles\hrwugr05.default*\chrome\userChrome.css file scripted as follows:


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

statuspanel { display:none!important; }


I really hate that statuspanel nag flashing in the lower left of my screen when watching movies online. I've reverted back to FF v60.0.1 for the css file t to work.

Is there a different Script needed for FF 61 or a bug you need to fix?

Thanks

Firefox.app shows the correct icon in the List view in a Finder window, however in the Icon view, Info, and in the Dock all shows the generic App icon. This started to happen only recently so I presume it's to do with the version 60.0.1 update. My OS is macOs 10.13.4

Got up this morning after shutting down my pc last night (for the first time in ages) and all my saved web page tabs have gone. It's a real problem because saved there was my old work tab as I don't get on with the new set-up. It has really really messed me up. How do I get them back please? (Tried F11 as I thought it might just be that - but that's not it - I still have the address bar, search bar, home, refresh button, arrows and most visited at the top as you can see in the pic - just none of my saved pages :( really really upset).

Todays Update Has Made My Hidden City Game On Facebook Painfully Slow

Today 5/20/2018, I opened Firefox and it was automatically updated. After the update I used my bookmark for Hidden City on Facebook (it's not the Gameroom app) and while the app was loading twice I got the yellow banner message that a webpage is slowing down my browser. I have gotten that message before and I always just wait instead of clicking Wait or Stop and the message goes away the app continues loading. After the loading screen the game was unbearably slow. My cursor moved around the screen fine but everything in the game moved slow. The CPU usage was 60-64 and the Memory usage was 63-71 and 4 firefox processes were running. When I first used the FireFox Quantum browser to play Hidden City was slow and I followed help page to fix it, but this recent update seems to have undone what I tweaked. The current version of the browser I see in the about FireFox is 60.0.1 (64 bit). Can someone help me tweak the browser so I can play game Hidden City? And I would like to also play my Secret Society game (it's the same type of game as Hidden City) in this browser but I haven't because I was concerned both games would be to much data for the browser to hold and would cause it to slow down. Is there a way I can store the data for both games so it doesn't effect the browsers performance and protect the data from being accidentally deleted when I clean out the browsers history? Also, Firefox is not my default browser, I only use it to play Hidden City because Internet Explorer can't be used to play it. Also I already have Adobe Flash on my computer but I can't use it in Firefox, when I tried to check out Secret Society there was a message saying I need to download flash player. How do I enable Flash Player so I can play Secret Society? I tried following the article I found in help but I don't see the flash player in my add ons, and the other add-ons I have is UBlock and it's enabled, and No Script which I just added today to see if it would help but I disabled it because it blocked java script and Hidden City won't work without it. If you need more information just let me know and I will try my best to supply it. Thank you for your time.

I search multiple etymological sites, several languages and technical pages with internal search, which on previous versions of firefox used to be a Dr Evil add-on (no longer valid for 60.0.1) which added any search-bar by right-click on any search window.

By comparison, The pre-selected choice of available sites is far too cumbersome and very limited, and bookmarks option is over-loaded, easily mis-selected and generally inconvenient.

If Firefox is to remain of use (and this version seems to crash rather often) a right-click "add to search-engine" should be a regular option, not an add-on. Generally 60.01 is disappointing, and seems to need a lot of work just to get back to the functionality of release 58 standard.

But then, one should only criticize one's friends, right? Enemies silently move on to a better product, do they not? Regards, timpo

Since FF upgraded to v5x (last month), Napster audio no longer works. I have Ghostery and AdBlocker Ultimate running. I've whitelisted both and started FF several times with ad-ins disabled. Still doesn't work. Audio on other sites works fine (only not on Napster). Napster suggested I wipe out my profile and create a new one (I don't want to reinstall Windows either). FF I use is portable FF. Napster audio works fine on Opera portable and on IE.

I tried all of the suggestions for audio problems to no avail. Like I said, audio works on everything except Napster. Napster worked fine for years before about a month ago.

Hello,

I have an audio problem with FF. Version is 60.0.1 , 64bit. Setup Win 7x64, xonar dgx sound card. This is a recent issue, from 60.0 I think.

On some youtube/twitter videos I only get sound in the left speaker if I select the 6 channel option. The selected output is headphones, but the card allows me to select from 2 to 8 input channels (which I use for 5.1/7.1 sources with dolby headphone (virtualization). If I select the 2 channel option then it works fine. I have tried it both with IE 11 and Opera and the sound is fine when 6 channel is selected. I have tried disabling all the addons, same issue.

Below are 2 links of videos in which the problem manifests itself (the subject of the videos is not relevant, they are just an example): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9HdFgmsNos https://twitter.com/taylorswift13/status/969342733088444417

2 links of videos that work fine with 6 channel enabled: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTvJoYnpeRQ https://twitter.com/taylorswift13/status/905811133210210310

I recently noticed that my search history had a huge number of remembered queries. I don't really care to see previous searches in my list. Is there a way to configure Firefox to clear that without wiping out any of my other histories? I like having browser history and I don't want it to clear out my auto-complete stuff in forms, but I do want it to wipe out my search history. When looking at settings, it appears the Form and Search history are tied together. That doesn't make sense to me. Is there a flag in about:config I can toggle to just wipe out search history on browser restart, leaving the rest intact? I use the separate search box and have disabled the "awesome bar."
