When opening firefox it opens to newtab instead of my homepage which is Yahoo. If I click on the home button it will go to my homepage but I shouldn't have to do that every time. I have cleared the cache and it will work once or twice only then back to the newtab page.

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.

the Adobe Acrobat extension stopped working. So I uninstalled it thinking I could find it on the list of add-ons and then reinstall it. However, apparently that's not the way this works. So I tried installing an upgraded version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, but the extension was not reinstalled in the process. I talked to the Adobe Acrobat help folks and they said that I have to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I'm very worried about this because I have so many specific settings set up in Firefox and I don't want to lose any of those. Is there another workaround?

I refreshed my firefox a few minutes ago and the only way I can describe it now is broken. Many page elements won't load such as images on some sites, and in the example I give here, the dark theme slider on YT doesn't show up at all. when I open the sidebar, the rest of the page becomes completely white. And the page is supposed to already be in dark theme. I am using the windows version. Can anybody help with this?

Every time a website with audio plays in Firefox version 81.0 (64-bit), a pop-up window (similar to the one in the attached screenshot) appears in the upper left corner of the screen. This never happened in previous versions of Firefox. I haven't found a way to disable it, if that's even possible--which I hope it is. The pop-up is not a major inconvenience, just an annoyance, because it disappears after 3-5 seconds or so. Nonetheless, I'd like to be rid of it altogether.

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

Some of well known sites such as "drive.google.com" & "mail.yahoo.com" is resulting in "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue page" in Firefox. They are opening just fine in other browsers.

This issue has cropped up since past week in Firefox. Not sure what is the root cause behind the problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox, but still no change.

I have checked the certificates of those sites, and they are seems to be in order. I mean other browsers are able to open without issue, then why Firefox is not opening them for me?

Please let me know if this issue can be fixed in Firefox.

Sorry, I am a lay, but this was the second time I got an award anouncement for the 1 Mil. search in Firefox. The link connects me to a page "utopia ...." presenting me 3 gifts for choice telling me a time limit of 5 minutes? This makes me unsure and I left the page.

Is this a real action of FIREFOX or is it a virus?

Spell check has long been a problem for me. It sometimes works, but most of the time it is not working, or is delayed by several minutes. The option to do spell checking is on. And the fact that it sometimes works indicates that the dictionary is present. This problems has been present for several releases. I am currently on 80.0.1

I know that before computers were common, a typist really strove to be accurate. But now you go for speed, and not accuracy at all. So, my messages tend to have a lot of errors. I cringe when I think of how many messages I typed before I realized that spell check was only occasionally working.

My work-around is to type what I need into my word processor, and then copy/paste into the web site where I want the text.

I've been an avid user of Firefox Monitor for the past few months, but recently over the last few days when I go to https://monitor.firefox.com/user/dashboard and log in, I've been struggling to find the button that allows me to add new email addresses. I've searched the support article for Monitor for this information, but to no avail: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-monitor. So I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction?

When I'm using FF on my Mac, Catalina OS, and click on telephone numbers in websites, they always open up Skype, which I don't want them to do.

Instead, I want them to take me to Facetime and dial the number there.

Is there some configuration in my Preferences or an add-on that is causing phone numbers to open Skype instead of Facetime?

What can I do to get it open Facetime and dial there instead of Skype?
