Well, I don't know what changed! My antivir tells me that I got a tracking cookie but they want money to delete it. So I searched and found an add on called "NoScript" who could maybe do the job for me.

But my problem is: I am (always) online with Firefox. If I want to download/install ANY add on, the site always tells me "Only in Firefox - Download and install now". As I am online with the newest version (79.0) , I absolutely don't understand this message. Okay, so I gave it a chance, hit the button and "installed" what's allready on my computer. But after that there is no change! If I want the add on, I still get the same message: "Only in Firefox - Download and install now"

What can you do for me or is there (really?) anything I have to change to be able to install AddOns again?


Nun, ich weiß nicht, was sich geändert hat! Mein Antivirus sagt mir, ich hätte einen Tracking Cookie, aber die wollen Geld für die Löschung. Also have ich gesucht und ein AddOn namens "NoScript" gefunden, das diesen Job möglicherweise erledigen kann.

Doch habe ich ein Problem: Ich bin (immer) mit Firefox online. Und wenn ich IRGENDEIN AddOn herunterladen/installieren will, erklärt mir die Seite stets "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter". Da ich immer mit der neuesten Version (79.0) online bin, kann ich diese Nachricht nicht absolut nicht verstehen. Okay, also versuchte ich es einmal, klickte den Button und "installierte", was bereits auf meinem Computer ist. Doch danach hat sich nichts geändert! Wenn ich das AddOn will, bekomme ich nach wie vor die selbe Nachricht: "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter"

Was könnt Ihr für mich tun oder gibt es da (tatsächlich?) etwas, das ich ändern muß, um wieder AddOns installieren zu können?

It doesn't happen with any other browser - I tested Brave, Vivaldi, & Opera. I kept the same # of other windows & tabs open. I have 8 gig RAM, no sign of maxing out from the Task Manager metrics.

Many many many months ago I had a problem with a Firefox update. Sent my question in and got a fix in response from support. It worked great and I closed out the question as solved. Right now which has been many many months since then, I'm receiving a lot of emails. Just today 12 emails from your support team bmbguy and jscher2000 in reference to the problem that was fixed a long time ago. I keep trying to close it out by clicking problem solved but I still keep getting many emails from them. I would like to have the emails stopped or remove me from their mailing list. Thank you....Glenn [email]

I'm very concerned about the recent structural changes at Mozilla as it pertains to FireFox. I left Chrome for Firefox but am considering going back as it appears Mozilla lost the war. If I don't see something announcing the future of Firefox in the next month, I'm dropping it due to security risk.

Is there a statement on it's future? All I saw was the CEO saying they were abandoning all things not commercially focused.

I may have changed a setting ... Normally when I need to sign back in to my yahoo/att email account I can select "stay signed in for 2 weeks" and that works. But as of today, even though I select the 2 week option, when I leave my email page, I have to sign back in upon returning. Every time..... The "stay signed in" option is currently working on Google Chrome and other browsers, but I'd prefer to continue with Firefox. Thank you

I have had to change the Search Engine back multiple multiple times after changing to DuckDuckGo and removing the others!

Why does the system Windows 10, if that is the culprit continue to change it away from DDGo? I removed the Microsoft Edge File from my Computer. It used to be the one that replaced it!

Print preview shows a single page, which is totally appropriate for the content. It says "1 of 1" at the bottom. Click the print button, and it prints 2 pages. (No changes done to formatting, selected printer or anything else.) The second page is completely unnecessary and consists only of a header line at the top, identical to the first page, and a footer at the bottom, which says "2 of 2" and the date and time.

'Print preview is NOT a preview' of what it actually is going to print and reformats the document without warning or permission.

In Network settings, I have "Use system proxy settings" but when I change these (after connecting to a VPN), firefox does not pick up the change and I have to manually go to Network changes and switch to a different option and back for FF to pick up the new system proxy settings. Chrome picks up the changes automatically.

Is this a bug? Is there any faster way to achieve this? (For instance some addon that does this with a single click?)

Thank you!

I cannot get any audio from my laptop speakers using Firefox. The behavior literally changed from one day to the next. It worked yesterday, it doesn't today. System sounds and other programs work fine, it's exclusively a Firefox issue. I changed the setting to allow video/audio in autoplay, and some other sites have suggested lowering the security.sandbox level to 2. I really don't want to do that unless it's my only option. Now, when I move my laptop from my "normal" external/USB sound card and use it somewhere else, I have no audio. I've also checked that the correct source is being used and is not muted. Absolutely confuzzled.

Several weeks ago Awesome screenshot stopped colorizing screenshots from one website only, earthnullschool. I save 22 different pics each day from this site and have been doing so for the last 6 years. On Facebook, earthnull admin said that nothing has changed on their end. I sent a report to Awesome, and now one to you as Firefox is superior to Edge for ease of use when saving the screenshots. I started using Edge as a result of Firefox no longer correctly taking the screenshot, but it takes around 9 extra steps to save each pic. Can anyone help me in getting Firefox to correctly fill the screenshots as it used to do?

FF79 x64 Win7 NoScript, Ublock Origin A financial website I use has suddenly stopped working for me. It will reject my logins as if I had entered them incorrectly. Sometimes it works after the 3rd try, but no longer. After multiple failures an authentication dialog will appear, but that also fails when proper codes are entered. I always use a private window for this site, and Noscript, Ublock Origin are not enabled for private windows. Explicitly disabling these addons does not fix the issue. I have no problem when I try the ancient IE I still have.

The institution has told me that FF users have been having issues. I tried clearing cache,cookies and history, and this allowed me to logon exactly one time. I am hoping the fix is a simple setting change. The suggestion to use FF safe mode is not a real solution. Are private windows not appropriate for these types of websites?
