My previous Firefox vs. had to be re-named. (I don't remember why.) The replacement name was "Firefox 2." So when I followed your instructions to update Firefox the previous vs. of my browser (Firefox 2) was not was not replaced. Now I have Firefox2 and the just-downloaded/new Firefox BOTH as my browsers.

It seems this is already causing problems. I canNOT take a screenshot. How do I overcome whatever issues result?

In case my double browser situation crashes (or otherwise misbehaves) I can go to the public library (open Wed. thru Sat) to get your response, but there is NO protection/privacy there...

Hi,

Firefox won't open correctly: my pinned tabs are there, the new tab is there, but it's unusable. The close, minimize and maximize buttons don't show up, I can't interact with the menu except for "Firefox" (not file, edit, view, ...). Safe mode works, in which I disabled my extensions, hardware acceleration, etc. but it doesn't help. I've also deleted and reinstalled Firefox.

I'm on a MacBook pro, running High Sierra 10.13.6

I have various tabs open and is linked to my tv screen. But is there an option where I can block one of the tabs from showing on the tv screen as we need to see all the others, but not this one? I only need to get to it now and then and if I do, everyone can see it. So the question is, can I duplicate my screen on another screen, but select a tab NOT TO SHOW on the other screen?

Mac OS version: 10.11.6 Issue : Upon startup of Firefox, all of the below documents get added to my desktop. This happens on every instance that I launch the application and it always makes additional copies of the documents, loading up my desktop.


Troubleshooting steps:

- Move the files into a Firefox Folder I created (more copies just get added to desktop) - Firefox Refresh - Un-installed and re-installed application

Hello, to keept it short:

Whenever I play songs on the Spotify Web Player with Firefox, I get some weird squeaking noises or distortions, which can be heard through out the song. This sound occurs especially when high frequencies are being played (for example when a cymbal is being hit).

I cleared the cache, history and even completely uninstalled and reinstalled the browser but the problem never got solved. I have the latest version of Firefox.

The issue only occurs with the Firefox Browser. I tried several other browsers and none of them have those issues.

unable to connect to asus routers and failing to pick up Asus 88U network

I have an ASUS DSL AC68U with modem and connected to that an Asus RT AC88U. When I originally set them up I could access each router via their ip address 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.50.1 respectively on my laptop. Also, each one came up in my wireless connections on my laptop and I chose to connect to the internet via the 88U with no problems. I then had trouble with my WD external hard drive and Sonos wireless music system and so had to turn off the routers for a short time.

After turning everything back on my HP laptop now only sees and shows the 68U wireless connection but not the 88U and when I try to go to either the 68u or 88u webpage to configure my routers, I just keep getting 'Unable to connect' from Firefox.

I have managed to connected to each via an Ethernet cable direct to my laptop and I can access them, it seems however that wirelessly I cannot.

Strange thing is my i-phone and i-pad and my partners Samsung phone see both connections and we can connect to either and access them via the web pages from the ip addresses given above..

Why is it my laptop running Firefox cannot now see the 88u or let me connect to either router, but it did a couple of weeks ago?

I am of the older generation who finds computers mostly an enigma, so please if you can help and your answer requires me to have to make alterations on my laptop, can you relay the answer in as simple a way as possible for me to follow?

My laptop is an HP Pavilion g6 running Windows 10 64bit.

Thanks for your help

Paul.
