i uninstalled GOGGLE tonight because, I HATE GOOGLE for several reasons. BUT since the uninstall, they are blocking not sites but CONTENT. I do a search and the content is on lots of URLS. BUT GOOGLE INTERCEPTS THE SITE, HIJACKS Firefox AND SAYS: GOOGLE 404. That’s an error. The requested URL [inappropriate link] was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

i KNOW its a lie as the URL/SITE comes up, I SEE THE CONTENT then GOOGLE "KNOCKS IT DOWN AND SAYS: GOOGLE 404. That’s an error. The requested URL [inappropriate link] was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

BUT IT DID IN FACT "FIND" IT, I SAW IT FOR A BRIEF MOMENT.

ANYONE?

Having long been puzzled by what Firefox considers to be my location, I have tried to find out how to set or change it. I followed all leads that seemed promising. the most direct lead was through the Menu (three bars in my PC-based Firefox). It does not contain the Settings option, nor any kind of 'More' option. I even used the about:config lead simply to find it is enabled. All I know is that Firefox holds a Location other than what I would want to to. But I simply cannot find a way to identify where its held; so I can change it.

Given how straight forward this need is I am puzzled on how hard it is to find out how to change it. Can someone help, other than by repeating the common instructions for using the Menu? I attach my list in case it helps.

Hi everyone. Weird issue.

So I reinstalled Firefox, and went about my business.. .and found that the font in gmail/google calendar is... well.. not smooth anymore.

At first I was just seeing things... and now its blatantly obvious the font has been changed somehow.

I've tried refreshing, safe mode, new profile, reinstalling, no add-ons, turning certain add-ons off, etc. Nothing seems to be working.

In comparison, the font in Opera and Chrome are exactly the same, and the font in Firefox is slightly off. and now I'm noticing this in almost all websites - it just seems the font in gmail/google calendar is obviously not smooth. What did i do, and how do i fix this? :(

Trying to open books in Google Play Books.

I have tried in Chrome, Firefox, IE, Vivaldi and Opera but all with the same result: "If you want to read books in Google Play you must allow cookies from books.googleusercontent.com"

However, what ever I do allow books.googleusercontent.com or cookies from same i does not work

Eg. Opera: Advanced Settings - Privacy & Security - Site Setting - Cookies - Allow - Add - books.googleusercontent.com

As mentioned, this is an issue in 5 browsers and I can't help thinking that it must be Google Play that has an issue.

I have tried Google Help forums but with no answers

I cant be right the every user has to go deep down in settings to be able to read the books (I'm frustrated, admit it)

Anyone knowing anything?

Take care

When using Google Forms, the normal options on all forms like: "Preview", "Settings", etc are invisible. I'm able to see them if I hover over them, but they are not visible otherwise. I just did some troubleshooting with Geek Squad and determined it's a Firefox issue. The problem does not exist using Chrome. See attached screen shots please.

I was able to use Google Forms in the past, this started a few months ago as I recall.

Thanks in advance for you help.

Some ads are being blocked in Firefox, but for the life of me, I cannot find where I might have an ad blocker turned on in Firefox or installed as a plug-in or extension. Chrome displays the ads correctly. Example site is www.milesawaygrandparenting.com. There are three ads at the bottom of most pages which display in Chrome but not (for me, anyway) in Firefox.

Where might I look or troubleshoot to find out where the ads are being blocked? I have McAfee Total Protection installed, and Privacy Badger also.

I can't delete autocomplete entries in any way. Clearing the complete form and search history does nothing, and using down-arrow to select entries in form blanks, and hitting DELETE, SHIFT+DELETE, CTRL+DELETE all do nothing, and while CTRL+SHIFT+DELETE will pop up the "Clear History" pane, it still does nothing when I select it to delete both form/search entries and cache.

I have Firefox set to not remember form or search history, and this has gone far beyond annoying. It's not an addon interfering, either, because I have tried it in Firefox Safe Mode (all addons disabled) as well, with no change.

I'm running Firefox 67.0.4 on Windows 10, and I have two monitors. One is set to HiDPI, the other is standard DPI. I've figured out that if I close Firefox and its last window is on the standard DPI display, the next time I open it it will straddle the two displays at a large scale. If I close the last window on my HiDPI display, it reopens normally on that display.

I've tried deleting the xulstore.json file but this doesn't fix this issue.

My operating system is Windows Professional 64bit. When I scroll on a web page the page will advance and than freeze or pause and and after a few seconds will advance again. Plus, there is a delay when I click on something. This happens in safe mode as well. I have tried all the suggested fixes on the help and community pages with no success. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Any other suggestions or recommendations.

Thanks,

Be well....

After years of stable operation this behavior began after an OS system update enabled me to update Firefox to 64.0.xx. I've tried both Refresh Firefox, and trashing prefs.js, without success. All social sites affected, Feedly, and others.

Noted: Firefox (preferred browser) is now the application associated with all html, json, js, and perhaps other files.

For some time now, I have noticed that if Firefox is not open and I click on a URL in an email or somewhere else, Firefox will open but the address bar goes blank and the page does not load. If I click on the link again, another window opens and the page seems to load fine. The same thing happens if I open Firefox and type a simplified URL (like www.xyz.com). It does not seem to be related to add-ons being enabled or disabled.

I just switched from Chrome to Firefox a few days ago. Today when I restarted my laptop and opened Firefox, my browsing profiles, preferences, extensions, about:config settings, etc have been deleted. I'd like to use Firefox as my primary browser, but I have no idea how this happened and no way of knowing that it won't happen again. Is there a way to restore all this so I don't have to waste my time setting it up only to (who knows!) have it deleted by surprise again?

1. Session Restore does not restore pinned tabs. I keep about ten, so this is a real burden, trying to remember them all and restore them manually. And it happens about twice a week that I have to restore, so it's no small matter. To me, at least.

2. Also, I still have the problem with using "X" to exit: If there is another window of FF running, and I exit the "main" window first, on restart I will only get the second window. I am so accustomed to using the "X" for all programs and apps. that retraining to use the three-line window and clicking on "Exit" is a challenge for me I try manfully to overcome for this. Which seems idiosyncratic to me. And Ctrl-Shft-Q has never worked for me at all.

Thanks.
