The website account is at www.Movescount.com and it will not allow me to login after the update to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Firefox Version 64.0. I am able to enter my user name but when attempting to enter the password it will not accept the entry or show the type. MY website account was functioning just fine using Firefox, most current update for Ubuntu 16.04LTS with all updates.

I had been able to display several of my favorite bookmark icons directly on the firefox "new tab" page. Able to access those displayed bookmarks without opening bookmark dropdown. To save screen space I do not display the bookmark toolbar. Somehow I erased this feature that I find very handy (only 1 click, vs 2 clicks: ha, talk about lazy.)

By putting the tabs down the right or left side it makes it more like a list and easier to read & keep track of. There is also more room to have multiple tabs open without the need to scroll to find what I'm looking for.

It also helps me keep my already busy toolbar from appearing even more cluttered. Would love to see this option added. Thanks!

Sincerely,

Tracy

When in private browsing mode, Firefox can be closed accidentally while files are downloading. There is no warning message from Firefox and the downloads are lost and cannot be resumed on restart (since it was a private browsing session).

I opened a tab in private browsing mode, but the site I was couldn't save on private browsing mode. It had something to do with the flash. I can't just re-open the tab on normal mode because the stuff I made would be lost. Is there any way I can switch the tab without losing the information?

When I attempt to open the link to PDF documents, Firefox begins opening new tabs repetitively at a rapid rate and will not stop until I shut down the browser. Any other tabs that were open are deleted. I have been using Firefox for a long time and this problem only began to happen recently. I would hope there is a solution without losing all my browsing history, bookmarks, etc. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm using a custom email sending program (https://www.haztek-software.com/applications/network/smtp-mail-sender/). It's much smaller and lower overhead than outlook, thunderbird etc.

I was wondering if Firefox calls the helper email program with environment variables containing the page URL and title? How would I pass these?

Thank you

I Can not download anything, other than web_page's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All so can not play youtube video's. All this after updating to Firefox version 64. Also I noticed that there has been more and more hic's as the update's come out. the last good browser that I had used was Firefox version 27 all of them after that has been more and more concentrating to use!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The freedom was what brought me to use firefox in first place, but that is diapering fast with each new update. I'm slowly getting more and more dissatisfied with the program with each and every new update. Less and less addon's less and less compatibility. Soon it will be just another worthless download on the internet.

P.S. Yes, I know I'm what is call a hard user (if the option is there I will try it.) (And I like having options.)

I can't seem to find any information on how to get around this. I'd like to use reCaptcha on my site to stave off bots from spamming me. Unfortunately it looks like Content Blocking does not allow the api to load when the site is viewed.

The resource at "https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js" was blocked because content blocking is enabled.

Am I missing something?

Whenever I try to access my college account, which requires multi-factor authentication, it does not load properly. When I arrive at the site, I input my credentials and then the login box should expand and ask whether I would like a "text, passcode, or push to phone authentication" however that quickly expands/loads and then disappears on Firefox. I tried it on Firefox on my iPhone with the same results... however... It works fine on Firefox focus.

I've gone through and disable various security features, such as accepting more cookies etc., but nothing seems to change.

Not sure how to proceed. Thanks!

Everything went well with the booking until I got to the last page where I review the booking and Air Mile Flights Terms and Conditions. "By clicking on this button, I have read the Travel Documentation Advisory and agree to the terms and conditions of the AIR MILES Reward Program". When I click that link the page proceeds to "PROCESSING Please Wait", then it quickly flashes to "Authorizing" and then reverts to the page that I just left. It never stops on the page where I would enter the Payment details.

If I disable private browsing the site functions properly and I can complete the transaction. Popups and cookies were allowed in both scenarios.

In bookmarks below the page name was a panel for notes. I used this all the time. I do research for a pharmacy in retirement as a hobby and used this panel for reference notes and referral to other entries. It is real annoying not having it as the name line is to small to write all my notes. I now have to give the name time an index number and write my notes in word. As you can imagine this is a big time waster. It was far more simpler to have the notes immediately under the name line

How to stop multiprocessing being disabled on start?

  1. Summary

I am unable to enable multiprocessing. I tried enabling it by setting `browser.tabs.remote.autostart` to `true` in `about:config`. However whenever I quit and re-open the browser, that setting has been changed back to `false`. How can I get it to stay `true`?

  1. Details:
  • Firefox 64.0.2, 64 bit, Windows 7.
  • This computer is managed by my employer. However I installed Firefox myself, straight from mozilla.org.
  • `about:support` says `Multiprocess Windows 0/1 (Disabled)`. (Note that if an add-on is causing multiprocessing to be disabled, it will say "Disabled by Add-on", which is not what I'm seeing.)


  1. What I've tried:
  • I have disabled my addons.
  • I have looked for prefs.js and mozilla.cfg in the locations listed here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1237547 The only one which exists is `C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\pref.js`. I do not have sufficient permissions to modify or delete that. The contents seem unrelated:

``` /* This Source Code Form is subject to the terms of the Mozilla Public

* License, v. 2.0. If a copy of the MPL was not distributed with this
* file, You can obtain one at http://mozilla.org/MPL/2.0/. */

//pref("app.update.channel", "release"); ```

  • I went to `about:support`, clicked on "Profile Folder: Open Folder", (C:\Users\$USERNAME\ApPData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\$HEX.default`) searched for prefs.js in that folder. I quit firefox, changed the `browser.tabs.remote.autostart` setting there to true, saved, and started firefox again. The setting in `about:config` was false, and `about:support` shows multiprocessing is disabled.

Impact: I am not able to use the "responsive design" functionality. Also, the browser is quite slow. (I don't even have many tabs open, always < 15)

Since my Bank 1stnb has upgraded their website, their billpay(Fidelity)web page does not show properly.I cannot display the top of the page even when I zoom in or out the view. The Bank claims that the problem is with the latest Firefox updates. I am now forced to use the edge browser with which I do not have this problem. I am going to have to use Edge as my default browser. Too bad because I always preferred and used Firefox in the past.

Hi Guys, I am a Firefox happy user for more than decade. In a last time it is having some issues I presume with the java scripts. It was not working today while submitting the "Refund" request on eBay. When I have pressed the "Refund" request button nothing has happened. I have used a Google Chrome to complete this task. It is also not fully functioning on Government websites in where (from my opinion) java script is used. It would be great if you can help to resolve this important issue. Thank you. Kind Regards, Vlad
