Hi, I noticed that when I visited Facebook.com the back button gets grayed out. As if Facebook.com was my first visited page on that tab. How can I prevent this? This isn't an issue on Chrome. Is there a solution somewhere? Will this be fixed soon?

Cheers!

The page works in IE

All the help pages and videos is pre-2020. Can this be a Firefox update problem?

Win10 - I was originally using a 3rd party addon, and experiencing this problem. I tried a few of them and they all did the same thing: the screen froze for about 20 seconds, then switched over to a new email in my Outlook (desktop) program, which had already been open (i.e. FF didn't have to wait for the program to open). I tried this from Chrome, and it worked instantly (so, the underlying functions work just fine). I got rid of the addon (I had tried a few of them) and just used the built-in Alf-F "Email link" function; it did the same thing. Right now my only quick method is to use Chrome, but I'd prefer Firefox instead. I appreciate any help.

Mouse Scroll not working. I wish to scroll up and down the page. However, the scroll causes the web page to change. the scroll has a virus and when I use the scroll, the web page goes back to the previous page. This is frustration. Has to be a virus or a glitch because no one in their right mind would change a mouse scroll to change pages, that makes no sense.

When I type something on the address bar all the suggestions get jammed up with title text overlaying the URL. This was not happening until 2 or 3 updates ago.

I have tried disabling all addons, the text moves a bit but still impossible to read. I have tried disabling Win10 Typing suggestions/autocomplete, nothing changed.

I happen to be one who simply does not wish to have any program remember or store passwords of any kind, thank you. An irritating problem I have with Firefox Password Manager is that whenever I log on to any site and the Password Manage box pops up and offers to save my password...once I select "Never Save" I expect that choice to be honored and would appreciate it if it were. But it simply isn't. I must continue to select "Never Save" each and every time I log onto any and all websites. What does "Never" mean in this context if the Password Manager continues to circulate the same query every single time? Is there any way I can simply disable Password Manager and thus avoid this irritation...which is getting very tedious and old. Please?

Clarify Extended Validation

I am trying to establish that a Web site uses Extended Validation as described in [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/.../how-do-i-tell-if-my-connection-is-secure]. It says:

"For sites using EV certificates, the legal company or organization name and location of the website owner displays when you click the gray padlock."

Here is a site that I am highly confident uses extended validation. You can read this for more details on why this matters a great deal read this for more details on why this matters a great deal. When I click on the gray padlock, I get a simple pop-up that doesn't display the legal company/org name or location of the web site! But it does show a gray padlock, green text "Connection Secure", and a clickable right-arrow. I then click on "more information", then "View Certificate" to finally get org details...but I still have no idea if this is an EV certificate! The only clue may be the detail "Extended Key Usages" "Purposes: Server Authentication, Client Authentication". I want to conclude that this means this is an EV certificate, but I am unable to find any documentation from Firefox/Mozilla that proves that this is an EV certificate. I suppose I could phone the organization and manually verify their details vs. what it says on the certificate, but this is a lot of work! Worse, for large organizations that go by different names and addresses, it could be a legit connection to the org's Web server, but what they tell me on the phone still might not match what the certificate says.

Can anybody shed light on this? How can I easily verify that this is an EV certificate?

I am currently running Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Win 7.

Previously, Firefox made this easy by displaying a green padlock symbol. Some Firefox forks still do, such as the *current* version of Tor Browser which is 9.0.10 (based on Mozilla Firefox 68.8.0esr) (32-bit).

Why did Firefox stop displaying the green padlock?

Currently when I click inside the Location Bar the entire string is selected/highlighted.

I don't want that, I want the old behavior where the first click positions the pointer at the place inside the string text where I clicked.

I have added these options (found in another Q):

browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll false browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll true

But they don't seem to work.

I'm using Firefox 76.0.1 on Linux, and the option to combine Search and Location bar.

Hello,

I am currently using Kaspersky Internet Security 2019 on both computers, and on mine it updated to the 2020 version, and I went to the Kaspersky forum and asked how do I re-install the 2019 version and I was given the help, however, now I have lost the Kaspersky Protection 2019 Add-On on Firefox, and when I look to see about installing the Kaspersky, it isn't listed on Firefox anymore.

Where can I find the 2019 Add-On?

Thank you,
