Hello Community,

I'm new here ;)

My Question is:

Why didn't the new version 79.0 install itself automatic like the other versions did before? I should download it from the Homepage and install it (maybe deinstall the Browser before). I got v.78.0.2 64bit on a Windows 10 desktop.

Thank you, friendly regards,

Robert

Bonjour ( from France )

I am submitting to you a problem that only appears with your browser and not with Chrome.

These are the cookies that I have configured on my PC to refuse them, it's my choice!

I accept them occasionally when certain sites I visit ask me to

When I connect to my portal, Orange in this case, I always have this banner (see the print sceen attached) which appears each time either by opening my inbox on each of the messages, or by consulting different subjects presented by the home page.

In vain I answer that I accept or refuse, it works on a few selection clicks then the banner reappears!

It's very very annoying

So I switch to Chrome and I don't have this pb so I conclude that it comes from Firefox!

I am retired from IT with 50 years in the business and I do not understand this bug.

Could you delete this permanent alert, especially since it has only appeared for a very few years.

Of course I could do without Firefox and use Chrome as my default browser, but I prefer Mozilla to Google.

Thank you in advance for your answer and remove this headband that breaks our feet.

Multiple questions, all somewhat related: 1. Why is it when I click into the address bar, I get a drop down with several options: Search with Google, youtube, Facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter? (see photo). All I want to do is type in an address and go to another site. I shouldn't be blasted with other options.

2. When I start typing in the address bar, the above options go away (thankfully) but then I get a double-repeat drop down of what I'm typing in the address bar. Is this really necessary....that I get what I've typed listed 3 separate times? What I've actually typed in the address bar, then a 2nd time that says "visit" after it, and then another line with the google symbol with what I've typed (again, see photos). Is this really necessary? Why not just the one line I've typed? The other two are useless and seem to indicate I really need confirmation that what I typed is what I meant.

I've already turned off the "use the address bar for search and navigation" option (see photo).

Basically, I want the navigation bar to be used ONLY for navigation. I've got a search bar in the toolbar for searches.

Pointofmail track emails messages sent in Gmail. They have prevented messages being sent. They do not provide a telephone number to call nor a street address. They have an email address (support@pointofmail.com) but don't respond to anything. The problem arose when I took up a free 30 day trial with their product, after which I did not wish to subscirbe. There is nowhere giving the "no thanks" option. Do you know how I can free myself from Pointofmail when Gmail is used in Firefox? Gmail works OK in other browsers (Thunderbird and Google). Please advise.

Firefox is blocking my Walmart Grocery site. Screen body is blank, all white. Site starts to open, then it is all erased. Only Firefox is doing this and it started recently. Walmart Grocery is essential to me as I am handicapped and need to order the food on-line. I have no installed extensions. No privacy blockers, so problem is coming from within Firefox recently.

When I go to a website that requests access to my webcam and/or my microphone (and I grant it), a tiny popup comes up over the tab bar. That's fine. But when I close the tab using either or both, the popup doesn't go away. It doesn't contain the mic and/or cam icon(s) anymore, just the Firefox logo, but it doesn't go away and, oh my, it is so annoying.

The attached images are (1) the popup when I am using my mic in a tab, and (2) the popup when I am no longer using neither mic nor cam anywhere but the popup is still visible.

I can only remove the Firefox-icon-only popup by restarting Firefox!

How do I solve this? Is this a bug?

Hello.

A couple of days ago, I was having problems with Firefox crashing when I opened it--no window would open at all. Prior to that I was having problems for a few hours with Firefox being extremely slow and getting stuck. This is with a MacBook Air with Catalina installed.

I did what I thought was clean reinstall and restored by profile from a backup. I had to try a couple of different times to get it to work. I did wind up losing my previous session.

Things seem to be working fine, but in the Firefox Windows menu it shows a window I can't access, close, etc. The tab open in the window has the title "Firefox protects your privacy automatically." I tried the "Show All Windows" command and only the other window "Google" can be seen. See the two screenshots.

I tried restarting Firefox in Safe Mode, restarting my computer, etc. and that has not helped.

During the reinstallation, I think I remember briefly seeing a different window with a tab from Firefox with this name, but I might be incorrect.

Quite often I accidentally double click on a video or a picture and Firefox decides it means I want to go to full screen. In my case it never does. I have never wanted to use full screen for anything in a browser and yet several times a month it decides by itself to go full screen. There is after all a reason I am using a computer and not a tablet(multiple windows).

So how do I stop Firefox from ever going to full screen mode regardless of what happens in Windows?

I have tried doing searches both on search engines, extensions and Firefox help site but all results seem to just point at the opposite solutions of always being full screen.

jscher2000 Jul 28, 2020, 5:12:26 AM

By the way, I think there is some other difference between these two 64-bit Firefoxes. Maybe they are different "languages" or "locales"? At the bottom of the Troubleshooting Information page, there is a section on that. The one you don't want is, I think the U.S. English build. Is the other one a different language/locale?

I did the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and renaming the Mozilla Firefox Folder. All that worked fine. The taskbar icon works.

But, I went out of order. I did the above before I saw your "by the way" message. I am again attaching jpegs from both troubleshooting pages on the Internationalization & Localization section If this is what you are referring to they are both the same.

So, if this is alright I will go back and redo the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and so on. Then delete C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and the desktop icon. Anything else that needs deleting?

Just for grins I am also attaching a jpeg of the Mozilla Firefox program from the Control Panel - Programs_Features page.

Think that's it.

Thanks again and again for all your help, Irv

I have Firefox pinned to my taskbar. This is how I open Firefox. It has Yahoo as my homepage, all my bookmarks and add-ons.

I also have an icon on my desktop. When I open that it does not have Yahoo as my homepage, my bookmarks and the same the add-ons.

When I click a link in a word doc or something outside of the opened browser, from my taskbar, a new browser/window opens. It goes to the site fine, but again it goes to new browser/window.

In both the above instances you will see an extra Firefox icon in the taskbar. The one on the right is the new browser/window.

I also have attached pics of what is occurring with each of the icons.

So, what gives and how to fix it?

Thank you, Irv
