It appears that Firefox has blocked windows explorer. I use Vista business but want to upgrade to windows 7. I also get messages that say that I need to install Apple application support but cannot do this either. I have deleted I tunes as a temporary measure because I know this will be a necessary action before upgrading Windows. Thanks for any help.

Hi, I have the latest version of Firefox 67.0 installed on my computer. I open a new tab and connect to my gmail account. Then I open a private browsing tab. A new tab is showing like any other regular normal tab. I type google.com in the address bar. I see that the supposedly private browsing tab is connected to my gmail account. This should not be the case. Is there any option or setting I should switch on or off in order to retrieve a private browsing that does not behave like a normal tab?

Thank you for your help!

I am completely unable to view the web page for tumblr when I sign in, getting this error: "The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.tumblr.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I have cleared the cache, deleted cookies, cleared the site history, checked cookie permissions, and updated firefox and the error is still happening. Help!

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

I primarily use Firefox 64. I have Firefox 32 on my computer to use when a website can't handle Firefox 64, e.g. San Diego Gas & Electric. Both versions are current, version 75.0. When I open Firefox 64 each day I get a diagnostic saying that it is not my default browser (Firefox 32 is). So, I've tried to change my default to Firefox 64 but nothing works - there are 3 "Firefox"s listed when I click on the default settings page and I've tried every option I can think of but I can't seem to change my default from Firefox 32, even going to IE, Edge, Chrome as default then back to Firefox 1, 2 or 3.

How do I make Firefox 64 my default? Should i try to uninstall Firefox 32 and then see if I can ger Firefox 64 as my default before re-installing Firefox 32?

The website https://www.finanznachrichten.de collects financial news from publishers all over the world. Some news are just a link to the publisher's website - this works still fine. Some news can be read directly on the webpage fully. But some articles are NOT displayed fully - only the beginning of the text is displayed followed by a link "Den vollständigenArtikel lesen...." (in english: "Read the full article..." ) This link leads to the full article on the publisher's website. My problem is: This link is NOT DISPLAYED anymore in firefox in all news of this kind on this website. But is was normally displayed in older versions of firefox. By the way: the webmaster of finanznachrichten.de wrote that THEY didn't apply any changes!!!

I just update firefox each time a new release comes up and I always keep all settings as they were before. In other browsers (IE for example) it is ALSO still displayed!!! So my idea is that a setting in firefox prevents those links from being displayed(?) Is that possible and if yes: Which settings do affect the displaying of web-links? (ad block is not the reason by the way - I verfified that) Here an example news: https://www.finanznachrichten.de/nachrichten-2020-04/49525168-nestle-aktie-ein-klarer-gewinner-503.htm Below the text other browsers display the mentioned full-article-link but firefox doesn't anymore. Any idea in the community?

How do I change the icon for the Add-ons tab?

I'm trying to use CSS to change the icon and name that is displayed on Firefox's "Add-ons" tab (I'm using pre-Quantum Firefox - ESR v52.9).

I can't seem to find a way to only affect the Add-ons tab's icon because that tab doesn't have a unique ID, and so any changes that I make inadvertently affects the icons of all tabs, not just the Add-on tab.

I have been able to isolate the TEXT for the Add-ons tab by using .tabbrowser-tab [value="Add-ons Manager"] but I'm not sure of the "after" syntax to use to replace the default tab name with a different name.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hello,

My Anti-Virus Malwarebytes app is frequently reporting a Trojan inside the Firefox browser. This problem has persisted since a long time ago, where I have reinstalled my Windows 10 many times, and deleted all the data (other than bookmarks) from Firefox such as stored passwords, cache and etc.

I hope to get a solution where I do not need to install any programs on my computer as I'd like to keep my computer clean of installs or reinstalls which are temporarily.

If that is not an option, please tell me any way. This will become a desperate problem for me in the future if it is not resolved.

Hey guys,

I'm using FF 63.0.1.

As of this update, FF no longer shows my visited links in a different color.

I haven't changed anything. My browsing history is still being saved (I have "Remember History" selected). I never use Private Browsing, or clear my history on exit. And in Options > Colors, "Visited Links" is still set to a unique color. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks!
