After a power failure in my area while I was online, my Firefox is now giving me "Network protocol error", half loading pages, seldom loading images, slow streaming on YouTube, and "problem loading page"(s).

I am advised by Firefox to inform the website owners but this is surely a Firefox browser problem, not a problem with Google or Facebook or YouTube or any website.

I am on Linux Mint 17. something on a 64bit system.

How does this get fixed?

Hey there! I've been struggling to solve this problem. Basically the dropdown URL, 'Remember this password' popup and menu list sporadically open while using Firefox. It usually starts after I've clicked on the menu/typed in a URL etc. These menus hang on the screen after Firefox has been minimized as well.

I've tried Safe Mode, disabling plugins and refreshing Firefox, none of which have worked.

Any help with this would be much appreciated!

I've attached a screenshot of the URL/menu hanging on the screen after Firefox is minimized.

Thank you.

When I put a topic to search on, I then go to sort on latest hour report and all articles are given back. The range of the articles go from weeks to months. this did not used to happen. If there was nothing in the last hour, nothing would be displayed. Same goes if I sort articles posted today. I see all articles and not sorted in latest to oldest.

I need help determining what is causing Firefox to not display certain content in webpages and is putting a checkered grid in place of external content.

See screenshot of image below. What is causing the checkered grid to show. I see the image for the briefest of time when loading the webpage, then the checkered grid appears in the place of the image. This is not the only online site for which this occurs. If I disable all my plugins, I get a similar issue. If I turn off content blocking, I still get this issue.

I am using ublock origin, and umatrix.

If I load the page in a private view, then the checkered grid disappears. If I create a new tab and load the page, the check grid is now gone too, but if I reload the page with the checkered gray grid pattern, the checkered grid pattern is still there. The inconsistency is baffling me.

HOWTO: disable master password auto prompt dynamically

Hi, this is not question but an answer :) While I was trying to figure out how I could get rid of the master password prompt that pops up on every page that I once saved the password for (because I often don't want to login on these pages, just take a look), I found many people asking this. The solution was the MasterPasswordPlus addon for Firefox which stopped working with Quantum.

So here's how to do it with webextensions. Please note that I did that just for myself and will not publish it because I'm to lazy to add all the error handling, do updates etc. I just provide this as is, and whoever wants to use it locally or maybe make an addon from it: please go ahead and use the code any way you want! I also post it here so that it can be found in Google for other people looking for this.

With these two files (get your own icons please) you will have a webextension that shows a little icon in the URL bar. When you click it, the "Remember logins and passwords for websites" options in the preferences will toggle on and off. When it's off, you won't be asked for the master password on sites that you stored before. When it's on, you get the popup asking for it. When it was off and you want your password filled in on a page, you have to switch it on and reload the page.

Very basic functionality, but maybe someone has fun extending it.

cu, Frank

manifest.json:


{
  "description": "Dis-/enable the master password popup",
  "manifest_version": 2,
  "name": "NewMasterPasswordPlus",
  "version": "1.0",
  "icons": { },

  "applications": {

    browser.pageAction.setIcon({tabId: tab.id, path: "icons/true.png"});
  } else {

  }
  browser.pageAction.show(tab.id);
}

function updateIcon(tab) {

      setIcon(tab,got.value);
    });
}

function getState() {
  var getting = browser.privacy.services.passwordSavingEnabled.get({});
  return getting;
}

 

function toggleState(tab) {
  var getting = browser.privacy.services.passwordSavingEnabled.get({});
  getting.then((got) => {
      console.log('got:'+got.value);
      if ((got.levelOfControl === "controlled_by_this_extension") ||
	  (got.levelOfControl === "controllable_by_this_extension")) {
	var setting = browser.privacy.services.passwordSavingEnabled.set({
	  value: !got.value
	      });
	setting.then(() => { updateTabs();});
      } else {
	console.log("Not able to set passwordSavingEnabled");
      }
    });
}



/* Update icon on all tabs */
function updateTabs(){
  var gettingAllTabs = browser.tabs.query({});
  gettingAllTabs.then((tabs) => {
      var state=getState();
      state.then((got) => {
	  for (let tab of tabs) {
	    setIcon(tab,got.value);
	  }
	});
      
    });
}


/* Each time a tab is updated, reset the page action for that tab. */
browser.tabs.onUpdated.addListener((id, changeInfo, tab) => {
    updateIcon(tab);
  });

/* Toggle when the page action is clicked. */
browser.pageAction.onClicked.addListener(toggleState);


/* When first loaded, initialize the page action for all tabs. */

We've had this issue more than once before, but I always forget how we 'fixed' it, and since good ole' Windows 10 keeps updating about once a month, and Firefox continually updates all the time, it seems to happen too often that Pandora online music (with our paid account so we don't have to hear commercials) seems to stop after EVERY tune. My question is: how do I fix this - again? I KNOW I did this once before, but here we are again after the latest update to Windows 10 today... Jeez... I think I want to go back to Windows 7 because this did not seem to happen as often as it does with Windows 10...

I can not open PDF files within Firefox, nor can I open them in an external program like Adobe Acrobat Reader. They automatically save to my Downloads folder instead. I have already changed the settings for "Portable Document Format (PDF)" under Options > General > Applications to be "Preview in Firefox" and I have also tried changing it to "Use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC". Neither seem to be working. It still downloads the file instead of opening it. I have also verified that there are no extensions that may be affecting the way the setting behaves, and there is nothing.

Firefox version: 66.0.2 Computer: Mac OS 10.13.6 I just changed my web mail password. The new password was accepted by the web mail site. The old password does NOT work. The new password DOES. I restarted the computer after making the change. When I signed back into my web mail site I had to input my new password. Firefox DID NOT ask to save the new password. (This feature IS turned on in the preferences.) When I signed out of Web mail and signed back in the NEW password was NOT automatically filled in. I went to the password manager and MANUALLY changed the password. I signed out of the web mail site and restarted the computer. When I signed back into the web mail site it STILL AUTOMATICALLY input the OLD password and I had to manually input the new one. I checked the password manager and the NEW password is there with today's date as the last time it was changed. I checked other sites with saved passwords and they still operate as the always have.

Why is this happening? What can I do to get it to ask & populate properly?
