As of about a week ago I have been unable to connect to https://weather.com using Firefox 78.0.1 64bit on Windows 10 Pro. As far as I have found in my regular browsing this is the only website with this problem; other websites open properly. The problem with https://weather.com occurs no matter how I try to connect - selecting a bookmark that worked in the past or typing directly in the address bar. If I am using an empty blank window what I see is a window that remains blank. The name that I typed in shows in the address bar but there is no padlock icon and no trackers shield. I am attaching a screen shot.

If I open Firefox in a private window I AM able to connect to https://weather.com as I could before in the ordinary window. I am also able to connect to https://weather.com using other browsers.

Any suggestions as to what has happened and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated!

The latest update of Firefox includes an incredibly annoying "feature". Clicking in the address bar brings up a drop-down list of sites: youtube, facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. This is distracting and I don't like Firefox shilling for these other sites. How do I get rid of these?

I am on Catalina OSX and when I press the maximize button (Alt + the green button, just so you know I am not making it full screen), or double click the top bar of firefox, it stretches the window all the way down resulting in the dock hiding a portion of it. This is the only app that has this behaviour and I tried looking around in firefox's settings to no avail :(

I can manually resize the window so it won't overlap with the dock but as soon as I quit and come back to it, it resets to the original problematic size.


Please help ! Pretty pretty pleeeease!

Thanks for your time and I hope every one of you is safe in these dire times!

When I signed on to my computer this a.m. and clicked on the Firefox icon from my Task Bar (on the bottom of the page) to bring up my homepage, it wouldn't go. I rec'd a msg stating it "couldn't find" a .dll file or something. When I clicked on the icon on my desktop, it started a whole new page - I lost all my "saved" pages and my "favorites" menu was gone! What happened and how can I get my "normal" Firefox page ?

I tried creating a Firefox master password, but that did not help. How do I get rid of this? It makes having store credit cards almost useless as I have to enter my windows sign on and password everytime I want to use a credit card.

Please continue here: [/questions/1293558]
hi, Firefox 77.0.1 (32-bit) in Windows 7 crashed completely and i had to taskkill /im firefox.exe /f this has happened a few times before, and up to this point Firefox could always restore the last session when reopened (maybe minus any last minute pages or any pages causing errors) this time, the browser restored many pages, some that i had already closed days before the crash (that i do not need) and it didn't restore tens of tabs that i had opened afterwards (that i need) the missing tabs are not tabs that i opened right before the crash, they were open for at least one or two days in other words, the session restored is an earlier/older version

is there something i can try to restore the last session fully? would there be another restore file i can use? thank you for your time

This is mostly a heads-up, in case others run into this problem.

For months I have been unable to log into my healthcare site (https://www.medicare.uhc.com/ via https://www.healthsafe-id.com/) on Firefox (latest PC version). I contacted UHC about the problem. All they did was recommend using a different browser. They passed the problem to level two, who I never heard from.

After many different attempts to localize the problem, I discovered the problem was with the Privacy Possum add-on. I am opening this so that others might find it if they run into the problem. I have removed that add-on, and have provided feedback to Firefox that it does not seem to be adequately supported at this time. I think they should remove it from availability, if they can.

I have been a long time Firefox user, mainly on my 10 year old iMac. Purchased a new iMac this spring and installed Firefox. Everything was fine for the first month or so, then problems started popping up. Spinning rainbow, bouncing icon with no connection, dead in the water responses from browser, etc. None of these which ever happened with the old machine. Apple support wasn't much help since Firefox is a third party program. Tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox and it worked fine for a couple of weeks, then the same problems started again. Have run a couple of virus and malware programs to be sure there were no problems.

Pretty frustrated at this point, don't really want to use Safari unless absolutely necessary, and haven't gotten near Chrome for years. Any help would really be appreciated.

Thanks, Joe

I always have trouble remembering where to go to request a feature vs report a bug. I couldn't find "feature request" so here I am.

When I save a bookmark by clicking the star, I get a drop down box. I have "Show editor when saving" checked. I then want to search for the folder in which to save my bookmark and so I hit the down arrow on the right. This expands the window to show some folder. However, the window is small and you have to keep clicking and scrolling. It would be so much better if the window was resizeable so I could expand it (after all isn't that why they are called windows?) or if I could enter the full bookmark editor. Then I could quickly and easily find the folder I am looking for. The attached image shows the tiny fixed sized window that Firefox presents.

Thank you.

In Firefox>Privacy and Security, there are two very similar looking settings regarding routine cookie destruction:

Cookies and Site Data>check Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Manage Permissions [A site list with Block, Allow, Allow for Session]

History>Firefox will Use custom settings for History>Clear history when Firefox closes. Settings: check Cookies

My current understanding is that Cookies and Site Data potentially provides exclusions from the cookie carnage, whereas the History setting per above would delete all cookies. Is this correct as far as it goes? What I keep wondering is why the topic of cookie destruction when closing cannot be handled in one area of the Settings layout, instead of in two different areas.
