I love StumbleUpon and I love Sharing interesting Stumbles. About a week and a half ago, Sharing stopped working in Firefox. The button is still there and the email addresses are still there but nothing makes it to the email addresses. There are no error messages. After posting my problem in StumbleUpon's help forum, a few members stated that Firefox had disabled the Share feature. If this is true, I shall unfortunately have to move to a different browser, something that DOES support Sharing. I love Firefox but I love Sharing more :(

Hello

Once again, I open this thread because nobody is warning about this error. This is the third thread, the previous two threads were archived because it was a long time without being resolved and they were closed automatically (each 6 months). So this error is officially active more than one year... Since Firefox v38.

Here is the 1st thread (closed automatically after 6 months) https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1064914

Here is the 2nd thread (closed automatically after 6 months) https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1099678

And here we are, once again. Firefox v48 with same visual error. Please, before asking and add solutions, read the previous two threads closed, because there are much more information about other solutions that have already said and have not solved anything.

Summary: "Since I upgraded to version 38 of Firefox on Mac, I have a problem with the Private Browsing window

This is not a functionality issue. It is a visual problem exactly.

With a normal window, the top bar you can see normally as always https://i.imgur.com/eghXt2i.png

But opening a new private window, you can see that in the top navigation bar, letters are cut at the base https://i.imgur.com/1P12vJR.png

Also functional system buttons "Close, Minimize and Full Screen" appear moved up on the bar https://i.imgur.com/U68TUm6.png "

Thank you.

Cannot use remapped F keys anymore

Hello:

I am using the excellent program Keyboard Layout Manager (KLM), Windows 7, and Firefox 48.0.

Sometimes, and I do not know how this happens, the KLM-remapped F keys I have dedicated to special characters (like å ä ö) stopped working in Firefox. It happened so seldom that I have not been able to isolate any previous reason for it. In these situations, Alt+132 (ä), for instance, works. And the F keys work in other programs, including IE. Non-mapped F keys wok. Closing and reopening either FF or the computer have fixed the problem in the past.

Closing and reopening Firefox does NOW NOT help (after updating to 48.0). I have NOW tried to to reboot and also restart the computer to get the function back. No cigar. Same for Safe Mode.

Here is what one of the developers of KLM says:


I guess that Firefox works on a lower level of processing keys than other applications, which is not a good feature for that program. What I mean is that when you press the key, your keyboard sends so called "scan key" code, which is translated into the "virtual key" code. All "normal" applications work with virtual key codes, not with scan codes, since scan codes can differ from keyboard to keyboard. The fact that Firefox ignores your layout makes me conclude that it works on the scan key code level.


Grateful for help to restore my remapped F keys.

Sometimes it shows number of people on - that can disappear too. Can't scroll down on right side as it is blank so I can't see additional people that are on. I've closed window. Reopened Firefox - restarted PC - nothing helps. Just updated Firefox also. Still the same. There use to be a green dot if some one was on & how long since they were on etc.

Thanks- & hope someone has an idea how to resolve this.

I manage an Ebay internet store. In the last 3 weeks, I have had to list about 1000 new listings. For some reason, the listings are showing up on the other search engines (Google & Internet Explorer) how they were created. When that same item is pulled up on the Firefox search engine, my description is completely gone. I have talked to ebay about this and the problem is not on their end. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox to ensure that I have the latest version. It did not make a difference. Is there something that I can do to fix the problem?

Why does my version of Firefox switch languages every two weeks or so?

When I start Firefox every now and then (Win7 machine, and I keep Firefox up to date), the language in all of the menus has changed from English to what I guess is Hungarian. I cannot navigate the menus to simply change the language (perhaps because I am not literate in Hungarian), and have only had success uninstalling and reinstalling the application.

This seems to happen around every two weeks, which makes me wonder if it coincides with Windows updates, but I am not sure.

Any preventative ideas would be great, as well as restorative ones.

Thanks!

1. The problem persists even when Chase setup instructions are followed, i.e. the site is saved as an Exception. 2. The problem emerges when the browser is closed -or- if the Chase site is accessed from another device between sessions. 3. The problem increases session count & data volume to dramatically increase user time, data plan cost and risk of credential intercept while conducting online banking with Chase. 4. The problem is accompanied by the lack of any information on sign-in or session security in effect for the new Chase online banking site. 5. A ticket was opened by Chase technical support 8/12/2016. No response todate.

Hi there!

I am using Firefox Sync to store some of my data. If works great, but it has a flaw: I can only access it with Firefox and there is no (working for me) Firefox available for Mobile.

To work around this problem, it would be ok for me to access sync data with a third party software, is there any? If not, is it possible to browse sync data directly from Firefox Sync website? If not, is there a public API so that I can write a small app to query the service?

Sorry for the dump question, but I'be been long looking for answers before asking and couldn't find any.

Thank you

"Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" doesn't keep all websites from reloading.

The results can be annoying, such as fivethirtyeight.com reloading thirty seconds after loading, while I'm trying in another address, forcing me to type again. The results can be migraine-inducing, and potentially seizure-inducing, such as helpx.adobe.com flashing and reloading every few seconds. I seem to recall trouble exiting that page too.

Please do not ask me to refresh Firefox or try Firefox in safe mode. I have a strobe sensitivity, and migraines, and need a number of animation-blocking tools to use Firefox.
