I'm running a brand new install of Debian. Initially the install comes with Firefox version 68.7.0 ESR. After setting up my Firefox preferences, I tried installing uBlock origin. The install seemed to go fine, but I noticed that the uBlock button does not appear to the right of the address bar by the bookmarks/sidebars/firefox account buttons. I went on Youtube to check to see if it was actually blocking ads and it is not blocking. When I open the addons page to check if it is there (Tools > Addons) it shows uBlock origin as an enabled addon.

I opened synaptic to see if there is an upgrade version available and saw that there was (Version 68.8.0 ESR). I went ahead and installed the upgrade, but there is no improvement, still seeing ads on Youtube. I removed it and reinstalled, but also no improvement. I've been searching google for answers but other than references to the issues last year with addons being broken I am not finding anything helpful.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Your help is appreciated.

So, is there any development for voice searching like what google chrome has?

Just curious.

Hi Team,

We are facing issue while exporting documents from our portal which is embedded into an iframe of some external portal.

We see the following error in the console :

Content Security Policy: The page’s settings blocked the loading of a resource at blob:https://abc.def.com/1gg3810-ae25-42ae-ghghb-123456789 (“frame-src”).

This issue comes only in firefox. We are able to export documents in other browsers. We think that the problem comes due to the portal is embedded into an iframe. when we execute the download URL in a separate tab, it allows to download the document.

We are using below CSP policy :

default-src * blob: 'self' 'unsafe-eval' 'unsafe-inline'; font-src * data:; img-src * data:; frame-src * blob: data: 'self'; object-src *

Thanks

Been trying to get the titlebar back for a while now, it just up and vanished and I never noticed it until recently when a webpage was displaying important information in the titlebar but because it was not present, I did not see this information and purchased a product that contained an ingredient which I am allergic to.

BTW: The correct terminology for the item in question is Window Caption

Found this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/943363

Didn't help.

Found this about:config setting: browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar It was TRUE I turned it FALSE Titlebar is showing.

Where in preferences is this toggled?

And is it possible to toggle it by accident with a shortcut key?

I keep getting this error when trying to login to zoosk.com: The page isn’t redirecting properly An error occurred during a connection to www.zoosk.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I went and deleted the cookies on this site.

I also went in my privacy and security under the cookies section and I added zoosk.com to ALLOW cookies for this site.

I tried logging in to the site again and I am still getting this same error.

I have no idea what to try next to solve this problem.

Sure would appreciate if anyone can help?

Thanks!

OK, I have no question that some wacky combination of keystrokes has gotten me into the issue I have, Im a poor typist at best and not really getting any better.

But Im cruising through my day and all of a sudden my Browser Linux Mint installation of V71, shifts EVERYTHING to about 1/3 of my screen width on the LEFT and leaves the other 2/3 completely inaccessible.

Rebooting doesn't help, hard shutdowns no go. I have more that 1 copy open (3 MAX), and the other 2 arent effected, just the one that was my primary.

This has occurred before and in the past it EVENTUALLY resolves itself. But Id love to know what Im doing wrong so I can NOT do it, as well as a solution?

Thanks hopefully I can post my screenshot.

I use Firefox as my main browser on my Windows 10 Laptop. It has McAfee Web Advisor installed.

About a week ago, I discovered that I could no longer login to my BT Yahoo Email Account using Firefox while McAfee Web Advisor was enabled. They'd worked perfectly together until then.

Now, if I'm using Firefox, I have to disable McAfee Web Advisor when I want to look at my Emails.

BUT if I use one of the other browsers I have installed, I don't have to do this. My other three browsers, BT Yahoo Email and McAfee Web Advisor continue to work perfectly together.

Has anyone come across this problem and if so, is there a fix you could suggest, please?
