This add-on called adaware had latched itself to my firefox browser which I notice every time I open a new session. It came when I installed Utorrent. I tried restarting firefox and searching for suspicious looking files in Program Files>Mozilla Firefox>defaults>pref but nothing turned up. I'm really looking forward to removing this adware as it is suspected of being a Hijacker being this is my dad's pc I am really scared right now if he finds out. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Kindly help resolve this problem by the earliest.

Using firefox 62.0.3 The hangouts part of Gmail always say it has a problem. When I go to hangout.google.com and try Sign In it blinks briefly and the returns to the sign in page and nothing happens. I've reset the 2 redirect things mentioned on several help places in about:config to no avail (accessibility.blockautorefresh = false network.http.prompt-temp-redirect = true) Hangouts works with IE, so it is likely not my firewall (Norton Security) Tried disabling Safe Web and Safe Search (Norton add-ons) no help. Hangouts works on Firefox on my work computer, but I can't figure the difference. Any suggestions on where to look? Mike

Despite the available extensions for older versions of Firefox, the latest doesn't allow the install of extensions of a offer a technique to hide the title-bar of Firefox Browser. The title bar consumes space and I would like a method to remove it similar to the way it is removed in Chrome.

Thanks for helping.

Using Firefox 62.0.3 (64-bit)

Since Firefox retired Persona and went to partial themes, I can't get a theme to stick.

When I open Firefox it displays the (really ugly) default blue and red theme. I go to Tools/Add-ons/Themes and enable one of several themes I've downloaded. All good. I close Firefox. The next time I start it, it flashes the theme that should be there, then overwrites it with the default blue and red theme (the really ugly one).

Mike.

At work I have multiple larger screens than the laptop screen itself.

The only way to get rid of it is to close all open tabs.

A couple of days ago my computer (an HP laptop) ran a windows 10 update. Afterwards I have multiple sites telling me Secure Connection Failed, including Gmail and many news sites. I also have some sites not loading correctly (not sure how to describe it so I included a full screen shot of the page in uploaded images). Now the thing is I don't have the problems with Microsoft edge, on my phone or on my old computer's Firefox that hasn't had the Windows update, so I know the problem is related to that. I've already tried clearing the cache, refreshing Firefox and even uninstalled/reinstalled it. None of them worked.Hopefully someone can help me find a workaround or the next Firefox update will address/fix these issues.

I had to refresh FF because it kept crashing. I lost all my bookmarks -- years of them! I have tried to get them back by importing from the Old Firefox folder, but nothing works. I get NO bookmarks. I have always touted FF as the best browser, but today I am incredibly sad to lose all of those because FF wouldn't stop crashing. It seems one needs more technical expertise than should be required.

Recently Firefox has stopped playing streaming audio from Google Play or Slacker. It has worked on those sites well, an for years. Audio from Spotify or Youtube work flawlessly. Slacker provides a popup error message that says "Your browser is disabling audio from Slacker Radio. Please update your browser settings. " Google is playing, but no audio is produced. Volume settings on the website are fine. I am running Windows 10 1803 and Firefox 62.0.3 (64-bit). I have tried:

        running Firefox in safe mode; 
        cleared the cache; and 
        disabling Flash Player 

I still have the problem.

Any ideas?

I have just installed the latest version of Firefox. However, when I launch the program, the screen is blank and no welcome screen or search window shows up. The screen is just a blank white. If I try to go to a website or search for something, the browser does not do anything, it just sits at the blank screen. Whenever I try to open the options from the Firefox menu, I cannot select any of the options within that menu. Any time I click on something, there is no response. I also have a huge list of options within my right-click context menu, which is really strange. Overall, Firefox is completely unresponsive and does not allow me to do anything. I can't even close the windows, I have to force close them through task manager.

I have tried to reinstall the program by deleting all old directory files after the uninstall. I have tried running the program in safe mode, but I am still not able to select any menu options or search for any websites. Thank you for your time and consideration, I hope we can find a solution!
