Whilst reading my daily newspaper, when i open an article some photos are replaced by code (see example)...

As i said, in some, most of the time it works fine? Seems to be the case when the newspaper uses photos imported from Twitter or an other external source?

Emptying cache (and again and again...) cannot be the solution though?

Thank U!

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

As stated in the title, everytime when I open a link in the operating system (i.e. clicking on a link in an email or opening a website with Alfred) while Firefox is not already running, the following happens:

1. Two Firefox windows are opened 2. One window opens the requested website (https://startpage.com in the Screenshots) but has no context items in the Menu Bar above. 3. The second opens at Home and has the items in the Menu Bar.

I am using Mac OS Catalina (multiple versions) and the issue persisted a complete reinstall (I wiped my hard drive and did a clean install) of the operating system. I tried mainstream Firefox 73.0 and Firefox Dev Edition latest beta 74.0b2. (Used `brew cask` to install) Also I do have another Mac on High Sierra that does not have this issue.

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

HI I have just updated FF from a very old version to 77.0b8 (64-bit). My favourite bookmarks bar had coloured (like windows) folder icons, now they are black, bland and horrible. I have tried searching for an add on that changes the folder icon colours, but the search brings up far to many bookmark add ons not related. I have tried many different searches but can't get a result. Does anyone know of a mod/add on, or a way to change the Folder icons colour please? Many thanks for reading.

I'm using firefox developer edition. The latest version: 76.0b2 I have firefox.cfg set up to overwrite new tab content with locally stored html. The code in firefox.cfg that worked until recent update:

/* set new tab page */ try {

 var newTabURL = "file:///G:/Documents/Newtab.html";
 aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService);
 aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

In the browser console there is an error message displayed:

[Exception... "Cannot modify properties of a WrappedNative" nsresult: "0x80570034 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CANT_MODIFY_PROP_ON_WN)" location: "JS frame :: firefox.cfg :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 7" data: no]

Any idea what that error message means and how to resolve it? Does anything changed regarding new tab overwrite?

I've found that input fields will not allow entering a forward slash (/) on Firefox Developer Edition (I am on 77.0b7 64bit at present; Windows 10 64-bit). It has been happening for at least a few weeks now.

This does not happen outside of responsive design mode. This does not happen on regular Firefox (I am on 76.0.1, 64 bit currently) either.

Here is my setup at present. Will provide more if asked!

add-ons: adaware ad block installed. plug-ins: openh264 video codec provided by Cisco systems inc. shockwave flash 32.0r0 widevine content decryption module provided by google inc themes: 'light' is enabled.

Anybody got any thoughts as to what may be going on?

I Cannot reset a (supposed my) PIN that able me to view a password saved. Firefox asks me for a PIN which I do not know, when I want to reset the PIN it points me to "Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options", but neither in Firefox Options (that I have to assume is referring to with "Settings") nor Firefox Sync account settings there exists such a "Sign-in options". These are the steps I followed to locate "Settings" and "Accounts" and "Sign-in options"

1. I went to Firefox Options and searched for "Accounts" 1. I went to Firefox Sync Settings > Manage Accounts 1. Also I attempted to try with another account but I do not have / I do not remember the password if any, it is not the same of my main account password because it does not work.

But I could not get the given "Sign-in options". How can I reset the PIN or just delete it because I do not remember when I had to create it neither what it is?

I know the email and password of my account, Firefox could send me a PIN reset request to my email, the one I am registered to Ffx Sync.

Thanks in advance. Regards, Jorge

Think of it as a manifesto or cry of the soul. I ask the moderators to bring these wishes to the developers.

You may not take me seriously, but I think you should listen to me, because I express the opinion of a large number of users. Feedback should be important to you, while you unfortunately lose your position. Developers are simply required to submit an official release of the portable version. Everyone needs personal space, and you yourself have planted this victorious banner proclaiming the protection of personal data. Give us this with a portable version. We spend a lot of time at work, we travel a lot today, we always need a reliable browser at hand. If the browser in the devices could replace the full version, the mobile version would not exist.

In the portable version I want to see: - security for data, the history of work on a PC for a browser from USB should not be saved. - There must be an authenticated login to start working with the browser. - strong encryption of passwords and cache. - Full synchronization, history, tabs, and sessions. It would be desirable to configure it so that it would work at the request of the user for a specific instance completely. This can be configured from one standard for another version or for all at once, or make everyone equal.

Now about the interface as a whole. And although I admire your stubbornness and identity, please look at the competitors, it will not give you such things: - minimalism like chrome (everyone is furious with extra elements, in opera it is a side panel or a button with an emblem, let me customize the working panel more flexible, as I used to, make the icons smaller) (remove the window frame in KDE 5 1 million thanks) - workspaces and a portable version like an opera (there is plenty of room for this on the work panel) (portability and mobility are great) - synchronization (I want to see the browser like you left it in another place, in another OS, on another PC, or after the portable version. If I consider it necessary to separate something, then this should be offered to be solved by synchronization settings, or workspaces)


I like firefox a lot. Your ideals and aspirations are close to me. I respect the work done by your team. And until the age of portable PCs the size of a USB flash drive (hi USB 4) has come, you can still fight for users.


P.S. Very soon the whole web will change, you yourself have launched many processes for this. Your attempts to create an OS are bold. But it seems to me that Google is more visionary. Every service becomes a mobile application over time, it happened because mobile devices are handy. WEB is not yet so flexible, and the service has not yet become as convenient a website as the application on a smartphone now, but everything will change in the future. The OS will be more like a browser with add-ons than the set of icons in your smartphone now. I wish you success.
