Hello, this appears to be a Firefox-exclusive problem as any other browser used will fix the issues listed below. However, when I am using Firefox, the following happens:

  • I am unable to like or retweet anything, and cannot follow any accounts. Attempting to do so resets them if I refresh or click off the tab.
  • Notifications do not go away even when I view them
  • Any tweets I have cannot be deleted
  • Any info on my profile cannot be changed
  • I cannot log out

I've tried multiple ways to fix this, including clearing my cache, running in Safe Mode, and removing my saved login. None of these have worked, unfortunately. I've reached out to Twitter Support, but soon realized I wouldn't hear back about specific problems at all. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Why isn't DuckDuckGo, Startpage, Searx, etc. Default search engine?

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

I just updated to windows 10, before I did I backed up my files on my firefox bookmark account. I went to to the restore thing, I saw all my stuff for a moment but after accepting the restore I can't get it to show. I still have my one Restore March, 31st option with 11 items appearing but nothing happens.

Hey there, awesomes! I'd like to change my Firefox pdf viewer's background color (both sides of the pdf) to dark, currently it shows light gray (see `background_bg.png`). And here is effect I want it to look like (see screenshot from Chrome `wished_bg.png`). Thanks in advance (:

PS: I don't want to change my theme to dark. It seems I have to change my css, but I dunno which & how.

I have a website which makes ajax requests to some endpoints which can take more than a minute (depending on how busy the server might be). In the recent version of firefox (81), it seems like after about a minute, the request appears to time out without an error message. I checked against other browsers and none seem to have the same issue.

Was this behavior expected out of version 81? I don't see anything in the release notes about this kind of change.

It's impossible to edit a URL in the new and terrible address bar. This is a problem, and just one tiny example among many, when a website shows a non English page because I am in some other country. I used to be able to change .../de/etc. to /en-us/etc. and get the correct page. Now I have to click dots, select to copy, paste into notepad, make the change and paste-and-go.

Can this completely idiotic behavior be changed? Who is this aimed at, anyway? Address bars have worked the same for decades at this point - and whilest enhancing it is fine, disabling something as basic to ALL Windows or Mac as editing is insane.

This is my second attempt to get some help with this ongoing issue;

I have uninstalled and re-downloaded through 3 versions now without a resolution. Both complete uninstalls without saving preferences. I have tried a FF restart as well.

The only add on I load is the Download Them All, but it happens even before I add that.

I always put the tabs on bottom by changing the true to false on tabs on top.

I have also tried using www.advanceduninstaller.com "Clean Your System Registry" with no luck.

Firefox is unable to open large PNG. Tried opening the same PNG in other browsers (IE/Chrome) without any issues. The PNG is being served via webserver.

The initial error message was unable to open the image. I reset and restarted firefox in safe mode and now I see broken image.

I can upload an example image, if needed.

I decided to clear all the cookies along with the browser history. After that I can't get access to my yahoo email. After trying to sing-in I get "a problem loading page" with the following message:

"The page isn't redirecting properly Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies. "

I' ve tried with IE (bliahhhh!) and there isn't any problem. Could you please provide me some advice? Thank you in advance for your interest.

I primarily use Firefox as my browser on my newer iMac with mountain lion. I had accidentally deleted some family photos from my desktop and used a recovery tool program to scrub my hard drive for recently deleted images. The program worked very good as I was able to recover my deleted family pictures but I had to go through hundreds of images to find them. In those hundreds of images I went through, I found screenshots of my Firefox activity from banking sessions, to amazon shopping, to google searches. I was stunned. They were only screenshots of Firefox browsing sessions. Hundreds. All taken without my knowledge. I clear my data often on Firefox. Cookies, cache, history, etc. I clear everything. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to stop it? It's definitely a security issue, a lot of the screenshots even showed "sign on" screenshots of banking sessions and amazon user names, email log-ins, etc. I don't know where the screenshots are stored, like I said I used a deleted image recovery program and it doesn't tell you, it just finds files. I scoured my computer looking for jpgs, pngs, etc and couldn't find anything on my own.

I can see firefox is running in task manager. but it just won't pop up. if I download it again and install it, it will run, but every time I reboot the system, it just won't run again. try: reset, safe mode, uninstall & reinstall, new/clean profile, none of those work.

I'm not sure exactly where this question should go, so apologies if I picked the wrong category. As far as I can tell, it fits into 'other problems': So I was getting an 'unresponsive script on page, do you want to stop it' dialogue for a Facebook page I frequent. Got sick of telling FF to stop the script every time, so I checked the 'do not ask again' box, hoping it would automatically just stop the script whenever it became a problem. Well, it's working a little too well. Now the page loads zero content. I'm just wondering how to 'undo' checking that box. Is there maybe a line in about:config I can look for, some setting I can adjust, to reset the 'do not ask again' option on 'stop unresponsive script' dialogues? Thanks in advance for any help!

Firefox doesn't recognize FLASH after update, no matter what. Also says to update plugins but there are none to update listed?

I have downloaded & re-downloaded FLASH, but after I updated my Firefox to 22.0 it no longer recognizes FLASH is installed on my computer. It also keep telling me "Some plugins required by this page have been blocked for your protection." When I check the plugins, the 3 listed are up to date, and the other 3 are marked "research" - which doesn't allow you to update them. I cannot discern that any of those are what is being blocked. When I click on Details, it brings me to a list of "Modules bloqués" and it's all listed in French...which would be great if spoke French or lived in France, but alas California is in the USA. My Java is updated, enabled & not blocked in any way. My Shockwave Flash is disabled & it will not give me the option to Enable it; I also cannot find a way to reinstall it or find a plugin to help me. !@#$%! So frustrating that this new "update" is useless. I hate 22.0.

What do I do now?
