I've had no problems for years when using PayPal to pay for Ebay items, but suddenly 14/02/2020 the PayPal pop-up window just sits there with the spinning circle. Paying by credit/debit card works fine, but I want the payment to come straight out from my bank account. Followed the simple instructions like disabling AdBlocker and checking Pop-ups are allowed, as given in other answers. Still stuck for a solution, saw elsewhere a reference to user_pref file but that just confused me as I'm not that technically minded. Any help would be gratefully received.

Firefox did an automatic update and totalled my old Firefox, or so I thought. I deleted Old Firefox. I downloaded new Firefox. Old Firefox reappeared with bookmarks, but New Firefox also appeared without bookmarks. I am completely mystified as to what I should do. Delete new Firefox and continue to use old Firefox? Or is there some way to install new Firefox and keep my old bookmarks on which I rely? I find this unfortunate migration disturbing and am wondering what went wrong and what else is wrong with new Firefox and the migration process. Thanks to anyone who can help me on this.

I have seen that 73.0 has caused some major problems for some. Since I installed 73.0 (64-bit) however, I have only one problem but it has a high impact on my use of Firefox. The setting for downloads was not changed and remained set correctly for "Ask me for file location" which has worked daily previously on previous Firefox versions. I have tried to change the setting to a specific file location and then change back to no avail. The specific location works fine but returning to the "ask me" option does not change anything. Not sure what to try or do to proceed...

before a recent upgrade to windows 10 pro, in Firefox I could always use the keyboard short cuts for copy and paste (crtl + c and crtl + v) within the browser. e.g highlight any text in browser page or address bar then crtl+c to copy then crtl + v paste that either in another tab or another application. Now I cannot. I can use the mouse right click (after highlighting) pull-down for copy and mouse right click pull-down for paste. How can this be fixed?

Can Mozilla make this features like Opera GX? I changed to Mozilla since Opera GX was slow loading sites. But can we get the good features from Opera GX like this one? On left side, there is a WhatsApp logo that we can click and popup for WhatsApp. Can we also get the floating video player like Opera GX? This is just a suggestion. Thanks!

If I remember, there was a McAfee Web Advisor icon on the top right of the Firefox browser, just to the left of the "hamburger" icon. But it's not there, it disappeared. Yes, it is enabled, and it is showing in Chrome. So where did it go and how do I get it back?

Thanks.

In previous versions all you had to do was highlight a URL in the dropdown from the address bar and Shift+Del would remove it, but that no longer works in 73.0.1, and it's funcionally impossible to find an answer via search engine because every result is pre-73 and suggests Shift+Del.

I am a dyslexic (and die-hard) Firefox user. Along the course of the years, I found out that inverting the text-background colors is a good practice to reduce the eye-straining and increase my reading speed.

To achieve this in Firefox, I installed "Dark Background Light Text" add-on and it I used to work out extremely good. However, in June 2018 (Firefox 61) this add-on lost the priviledge to operate in the embedded PDF viewer. This is extremely painful (considering that on average I open 40-50 PDF per week), and I often I have to download/open the documents outside Firefox. This often turns out to be a disrupting process, that makes me lose focus when swapping back and forth between the PDF viewer, my IDE and the browser.

I don't know whether there is a way to activate this feature and I think I made a couple of requests to implement it, but, as of now, I've never received any answer. What makes things worse the Firefox's PDF viewer is the __only__ viewer that doesn't support this feature natively. Is there a way to enable this in Firefox? (I could be as desperate as to try to volunteer to implementing it in the code myself)

Please, don't leave my support request unanswered any longer.

I was using firefox sync account wadahi@top-mails.net just fine. that email was deleted for non-use. No verification procedure was laid out anywhere in the agreement. Then firefox modified the agreement and now sends verification codes to that email, which I no longer have access to. I am able to login in my account using the login and password , however firefox now wont allow me to change the email to the new one to receive verification code. I need access to my bookmarks and saved passwords NOW! Firefox had no rights to unilaterally change the agreement without notice to the customer. Firefox had no right to impose the verification email without letting the customer make sure his email can still recieve verification codes. Firefox failed to provide customer support because it doesnt even have a technical support email or phone number like a registered business should have. I lost access to my bookmarks and saved passwords because of negligence and reckleness of Firefox in failing to notify the customer to change the email to make sure the email can receive incoming emails and is current. I have the access to my firefox sync account, however it wont let me login without the verification code which is being sent to a nonactive email, used many years ago.

Suggested resolution: if you are a smart and relatively educated techncial support, you would realize that the same ip address would indicate that I am who I am and I should be allowed to change the email. However, firefox provided no technciall support and DID NOT EVEN HAVE A CONTACT EMAIL, while making significant profits from the customers and yet fails to provide technical support.

I need access to my bookmarks NOW!

I have bookmarked the 'Library' using the chrome URL: chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul, for the purpose of opening the library in a new tab. This, and other chrome urls such as: chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarksManager.xul, no longer work, apparently since Firefox updated to 73 or 73.0.1.

Now when clicking the bookmark, I get the error: File Not Found. Firefox can’t find the file at jar:file:///C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/browser/content/browser/bookmarks/bookmarksManager.xul.

The omni file in the Programs folder now is: omni.ja, not omni.jar.

Was the omni file made obsolete or changed? Will this be addressed in the next update?

How do I workaround this to maintain my bookmark for the library and other bookmarks using chrome urls as referenced at: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Chrome_URLs?
