When I click on any tab from the bookmarks toolbar it opens in a new tab but before it use to open in the same tab (the one I was in) except for new tab. For Ex - I am using YouTube and then I clicked on Google Drive (from Bookmarks toolbar) then Google Drive opens in a new tab instead of getting opened in the same YouTube tab. Before it didn't use to happen but now its happening, idk why. Please resolve this as soon as possible.

My Firefox has been infected with MyNewTab. All attempts to remove it with various malware-removing software have failed. It does not appear in any list of installed software. I have found that I can only stop it from interferring with firefox by uninstalling firefox and reinstalling it - without syncing. So I am now trying to reinstatre Firefox to more or less how it was before.

The only real issue is that before it had an add-on - Norton Safe Web - which is not added now. I tried uninstalling Norton 360 and reinstalling it in the hope it would get the addon added. It didn't. But according to what I read it is very easy to add an add-on. I can select it from the list of add-ons, thus displaying a page all about it. According to help notes, you just click to add-on this choicre. But I can see nowhere to click to do it. I've been over that page time after time but see no way of progressing.

Help!!!

My desktop Firefox will not allow me to log into my bank. When I hit Log In, the bank page goes cloudy and that's it. This is not happening on other browsers, or on my laptop with the same passwords. This started today. There has been a recent Firefox update. We have cleared cache and cookies, tried disabling add-ons, run C Cleaner, no change.

Has anyone else had this problem? The computer involved has not had any changes recently.

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

I'm working on a website which uses third-party cookies for user login. But, recently, firefox has made Total Cookie Protection default making third-party cookies obsolete. To gain access to unpartitioned cookie jar, the documentation (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Document/requestStorageAccess) tells that we have to call requestStorageAccess() API on a "user generated event". With this as a limitation, I have to add an additional button to create an user generated event. This is affecting my website's user experience.

Is there a way / hack to call this API without an user generated event like a button click.

Thanks in advance

Previously when I would open an attachment in my att/bellsouth email, (powered by Yahoo), it would open in a new tab and also download it and save it to the download folder. Now when I click on attachment it displaces my inbox while still downloading and saving it in the download folder. I did make one change previously; I set it to open downloads in Firefox because if I wanted to open something from the past, it would open in Edge. I don't use Edge, so I set it to "open in Firefox" but now I can't find that setting to see if it is causing my issue. If it's not causing my issue, I will still need to know how to get attachments in my email to open in a new tab.

I have been using Firefox for accessing my desktop online banking for some years. In the last few days, the images on the part of the logon page that requires card and security details are stretched laterally, which prevents use. The text seems normal. See attached screenshot.

I can shrink the image to fit my screen, but I have not entered any details. The bank has checked their end and cannot find anything wrong: suggested that I switch browser - which worked.

I prefer to continue with Firefox, so wish to find a fix. Have I got some malware on-board, or is it an update issue?

I use Norton for security, and I've done a full sweep having updated. Nothing found. I use CCleaner very regularly - nothing found after checking for updates.

What do I need to do now, please?

I've been receiving notifications for a good while. I could click on an icon in my toolbar and it would list the most recent notifications. I could click on the one in which I was interested and the browser would open that website with the info referred to by the notification. Now I can't find that icon. I like that feature but as I research, it seems that I was dreaming. I can't find any info about the referred to icon. I like the notification but I can't figure out how to get to them.

It appears that 2 preferences are regularly changing by themselves on a family member's WIndows 10 laptop.

1. The "mailto" option disappears from Applications. We fix it a Firefox Refresh which restores it...until it disappears again within days or weeks.

2. The "Always ask where to save files" unchecks in Downloads. We check it, and it works fine...until it becomes unchecked again within weeks.

What do we need to look for in order to avoid this?

The problem is basically in the title. The expected behavior:

1. With FF closed, I click a link in an app or document. 2. FF opens and shows my old tabs in one or more windows. 3. The link I clicked opens in a new tab in the same window as my old tabs.

My browser is set to "Open previous windows and tabs" on restart, and to "Open links in a new tab rather than a new window." I tried some basic about:config fixes as advised here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1331882) with no luck.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot this?

Hi!

I have been experiencing the same error that while qBittorrent is running in the background, especially when multiple torrents are being downloaded and/or uploaded and too much memory is used, Firefox crashes many many times. The crash is strange, there is no popup window stating that FF crashed, just it gets closed. So I cannot present an error log. The first sign of this upcoming crash is that the FF window gets bigger, the bottom Windows taskbar disappers and FF freezes, then it becomes normal again and then it closes without warning. This same error could be experienced since at least 5 or 6 previous versions of FF. Although with every update it became scarcer, but still it can be experienced.

Thanks for your help in advance.
