So I've been using firefox for a while now, and I really like it, but in the past few months it has suddenly decided that my browser is out of date (not the case, I'm running the latest update) and unsupported, even though it says firefox is supported. This happens on a lot of different sites. I tried resetting my useragent and clearing my cache and cookies, but nothing seems to have happened. I still get the bug. I submitted to webcompat too.

https://github.com/webcompat/web-bugs/issues/55085

Please help, its super irritating to deal with, and I don't want to have to switch browser.

In version 75 when I click in the address bar, a list of my most common sites appears, but at the TOP of this list are search with google and also amazon.co.uk. These are options I do not want to see, just "my" web sites. How can I remove these two items from the drop down list? Thanks.

I have been using firefox for years and am very happy with it. I have a Dell optiplex 7010 desktop. I am running Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS. I do not have a firewall turned on. Apparently, my desktop browser was updated to Firefox 78.0.1 (64-bit) on 7-1-2020. Since that time, I have been unable to access any websites from Firefox including mozilla.org. I am connected through WiFi. After downloading the Opera browser I have been able to access any website with no problems. I read community troubleshooting on this issue and tried various fixes including turning off IPv6. I read the community article about turning off my personal firewall. I was unaware of using any firewall so I installed Gufw Firewall 18.04.0. Running this program shows my firewall status is "OFF". I checked my AT&T modem and could not find any firewall settings that specifically mentioned Firefox. I would like to continue using Firefox since I use it on my phone and laptop also use it.

My laptop is a Dell Vostro 1520 running Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS 64 bit. It also accesses the internet through the same WiFi. It currently has no problems loading web sites with Firefox version 78.0.1

Please help.

I was using Firefox and my system was low on resources so it killed the process using the most memory which was Firefox. When it restarted every page showed up as garbage. I've cleared cache. I've refreshed Firefox. I've reinstalled. I've rebooted. Nothing seems to work. mozilla.org appears to work but every other site I try looks like the attached image. When I view the source of a page that looks like garbage, the source looks perfectly fine. I'm running 77.0.1 64 bit on Windows 7. Any ideas?

Hi, Until recently the right click, 'save image as' method of saving a site image has worked flawlessly, now it goes into a death spiral & crashes Firefox. See image attached.

Am running Win10, 64 bit. Win is up to date. Firefox is 77.0.1 (64 bit)

Have run the diagnostics/help files suggested in the help files to no effect. Have similarly run Brave which is also doing the same thing whereas Edge doesn't seem to be affected.

Have deleted & re-installed both Firefox & Brave without change.

What am I not doing right?

Thanks

When I click print in Firefox and chose Paperless Printer it would start and run the program. By doing this I save on paper and ink plus I can save in any format that Paperless Printer has. It used to work until approximately a month ago. Paperless Printer still works in I.E. and MS Edge. I've reinstalled P.P. and I also tried refreshing Firefox but nothing helped. Paperless Printer shows as a printer in the list and when chosen the PP program would open up and take over the printing needs and then just store the created file. Now Firefox starts to ready the page(s) to print but PP doesn't open up.

I started using Firefox for the first time last week and yesterday I decided to update my computer (Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4), and once the update was finished I saw a ? instead of the Firefox icon. I was still able to open the app, but it was as if everything was completely reset. "Welcome to Firefox" page, had been signed out of my account -- and even when I signed in, I got an email that a "new" device was logging in, and my entire account had been wiped of all extensions, bookmarks, settings, etc.

Thankfully, I was able to recover an older version of my profile to replace the deleted bookmarks, browser history, and most (but not all) of my settings -- but I absolutely do not want this to happen every time I update my computer, and I don't even understand why this happened in the first place. No browser I've ever used has just erased all my data and history when all I did was install a minor update to my OS. Not a great first impression tbh, but if I can prevent it from ever happening again that would help.

The website https://www.finanznachrichten.de collects financial news from publishers all over the world. Some news are just a link to the publisher's website - this works still fine. Some news can be read directly on the webpage fully. But some articles are NOT displayed fully - only the beginning of the text is displayed followed by a link "Den vollständigenArtikel lesen...." (in english: "Read the full article..." ) This link leads to the full article on the publisher's website. My problem is: This link is NOT DISPLAYED anymore in firefox in all news of this kind on this website. But is was normally displayed in older versions of firefox. By the way: the webmaster of finanznachrichten.de wrote that THEY didn't apply any changes!!!

I just update firefox each time a new release comes up and I always keep all settings as they were before. In other browsers (IE for example) it is ALSO still displayed!!! So my idea is that a setting in firefox prevents those links from being displayed(?) Is that possible and if yes: Which settings do affect the displaying of web-links? (ad block is not the reason by the way - I verfified that) Here an example news: https://www.finanznachrichten.de/nachrichten-2020-04/49525168-nestle-aktie-ein-klarer-gewinner-503.htm Below the text other browsers display the mentioned full-article-link but firefox doesn't anymore. Any idea in the community?

I am a user of Mike's Weather Page (and have used it for years). I disable my ad blocker when using it because on the top of the right-hand side, his Facebook page is vertically bookended with ads. I am using MS System 10.

The site works well with Chrome, and I can see his Facebook page displayed. But I am unable to see his Facebook page and the bookend ads with Firefox. All I see is the hotlink URL for his Facebook page, which, if I click on it, opens a new window containing his Facebook page.

How do I get the Facebook page to open within Mike's Weather Page?
