I am using latest version of Firefox on Windows 10 machine. We use sharepoint to store files...I am not able to checkout any files using firefox browser. It works with Edge, Chrome and IE ofcourse. Is there any setting I need to configure to make this happen?

Everytime I open a file from TFS, it opens in Read Only mode. If I do the same using edge/chrome/IE, the file opens in excel/word with a checkout button on the ribbon on top. However this option is not visible when using firefox. Please help

78.0.1 just got installed for my Windows 7 desktop. Now the auction tracking popup no longer works. From my ebay purhase history and select tracking on a purchase it used to work and the box would not be too big. Now the box is formatted wrong and the close button is off the screen to the top and the bottom is also off the screen and no way to get to current tracking info on that page or original tracking info.

This used to work. It no longer works. I stopped using Waterfox because it has never worked in Waterfox and now Firefox does not work either.

When I open Firefox, I receive the following: Firefox can’t find the file at jar:file:///C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/en-US/locale/branding/browserconfig.properties. I have seen the help that suggest I go to "about:config" and the browser.startup.homepage, which I have done. But the suggestion doesn't state what I should do once there. What do I do to the browser.startup.homepage?

When I open anything in a new window for Office 365, I get a blank rendering of the content, which I obviously can't use.

This is frustrating, because anytime that I want to pop and email out of Outlook online to focus on later, I can't. Also, if I want to reply to a calendar invite, I can't because outlook pops up a new window that wont render. I really want to keep using firefox because of your mission and privacy... but I may have to move to chrome for this because most of my work is done in outlook online.

I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

I use roboform and, I guess Firefox, puts the roboform toolbar at the bottom of the screen - frequently there is no option to scroll the screen up and I cannot read what is on the bottom of the screen unless I disable the roboform toolbar, read the line or two I am missing and then reenable the roboform toolbar - not a huge deal but sort of a pain in the neck - any way around that? Thanks in advance for any help.

Out of all the hundreds of websites I regularly visit each week, two websites flag the exact same security warning on Zone Alarm every single time I visit them, and I have never gotten this warning anywhere else at any other website. I am already aware these two websites are not to be trusted so I suspect they have engineered something to compromise the Firefox web browser. Zone Alarm pops up a warning that "Firefox is attempting to monitor user activities on this computer. If allowed it may try to track or log keystrokes (user input), mouse movements/clicks, websites visited, and other user behaviors." A screen-cap of the Zone Alarm warning is attached. I deny this action in Zone Alarm every time it happens. Let me again emphasis this happens nowhere else, only at these two sketchy websites I occasionally visit and it happens every single time I go there and my concern is that they have embedded something in their webpages compromising the Firefox web browser.

Hi,

I've recently had an issue where there is a white bar on one of my other monitors when Firefox is maximised. I have reinstalled Firefox, restarted in Safe Mode, uninstalled it completely and tried a different build (I tried Nightly 80.0a1) and it has remained the same.

The issue does not occur on any other window or browser; I have tried Edge and Chrome and it doesn't occur on either of those.

Here is how it looks in person, and Here is how it looks when Firefox is minimised (The black bar is just the gap between my two monitors)

Here is how it looks in a screenshot (note the white line between the top of the Firefox window and my wallpaper)

Is there a way to keep the firefox process in foreground? I'd like to write a .CMD script which opens a file location where the profiles are stored (a VHD file), mount it, and then launch it with the profile stored up there, something like:

start "firefox" /W "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" "-foreground -profile ""%driveletter%\%ffprofile%"""

...but firefox always forks to background. I do not want that, as this batch script needs to close the VHD file after firefox process completes.

How do I keep the process in foreground?

Firefox is no longer remembering my logins. I had 100s out there. Started yesterday. I tried the login.json file and that did nothing. I tried db4 but I only have one copy of that file. I tried to synch with my phone, which seems to have some of the logins and it will not synch. My files are not marked to read only and I cannot find any setting that may have been tripped to prevent logins from saving. Any other ideas? Thank you.

I have just had to reload FIREFOX ... loosing both my history/web addresses ... and it would appear also an automatic prompt before downloading a file!

Some files for downloading do not have clearly written titles ... Gzil_56565 for instance.

So when I clicked the file for downloading, the system would check if I still wanted to download the file with a pop-up ... in which I could type over the file's title with something more befitting ... like GODZILLA fights BAMBI.

At the moment ... the files load with their odd titles ... and I am wasting time having to review them and rename!

Many thanks

The old profiles had my logins for work. I would prefer not to have to spend hours resetting something like 15-20 logins and profiles and then the next two months forgetting what the new ones are.
