Last week Adobe Flash stopped actuating/working with Firefox and there is no black box in the address bar or any place else that I see that asks me to activate it. I have it set as Always Activate on the Plug-Ins page but that isn't helping. I checked and have the most recent version. I had to go through several steps to activate it but it does work in Chrome. I run Win 7 and Firefox is my default browser. Please advise how I can get Flash to work again as it is hampering a lot of my activity on the web. Thank you.

In the print dialog box the option 'print each frame' is gone. As someone asked, you can do a right click and print a selected frame. But that's a whole different thing. I want to print all frames on the page at once. I use a PC , if that makes a difference

So how can I get it back? Or do I need to switch browser?

Firefox says at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-update-add-ons, "Check for Updates: Allows you to check for any updates to your add-ons manually. If there is an update available, you have the option to choose to update it now or later." I don't see that option. I can install all updates now or not. How can I install selectively? And (since Firefox does not seem to reveal the versions of the add-ons I'm using), how can I be sure whether a particular add-on I'm using is already up-to-date?

Containers - how can I set the maximum size of each? (Firefox CP Content) to solve sluggish performance

Very sluggish performance, scrolling or changing tabs etc. There are 7 "Firefox CP Content" processes running, each about 800 MB but I've seen them go to maybe 1.3 GB. I'm thinking that swapping that much memory takes a long time, so maybe if I force them to be no mor then 500 MB It might help.

Can't find a Preference for "cache size" anymore - why not Content Process Limit is maxed out at 7.

I have printed to the new HP printer and this works fine, but Firefox persists in keeping the old laserjet as the defualt. I have disabled the old printer in CUPS, reset the printer settings in Firefox and deleted all printer settings from the prefs.js file, but Firefox persists in selecting this old printer first. I don't want to delete it as it was difficult to install and I might want to add it back to my network later.

This morning, 09/03, Firefox was updated. After that, every time I would open a Facebook game I would be prompted to run Flash Player. Posted on Community, no response. Decided to uninstall/reinstall. Now, everything is F__d'ed up. When I click on any game, all I get is a black window. Also, I've always left two tabs open and when I'm finished on-line, I would click on the red X in the upper right. Then, when I wanted to go back on line, when I click on the Firefox icon in the task bar, both tabs would come up. Now, if I click on the X, I get a warning I'm about to close two tabs. If I click OK, both tabs are closed and when I open Firefox again, they are not there. Getting sick and tired of the problems.

Hello everyone.

Since the forced windows 1903 update I have a big problem with Mozilla Firefox.

Firefox is randomly freezing and closing. (I guess it's crashing). I have no idea why and I am totally lost. No crashes are detected in 'about:crashes' and I tried to reinstall Firefox completely but the problem is still here.

I have the feeling the crash occur when I open new tabs..

Thanks a lot for your help !

I have an android phone running android 9 (Pie) and I had over 100 tabs on it open (mostly news articles and stuff). It is signed into my Firefox account. I realized that's a lot of tabs and the past 2 days I've been actually sorting them and closing some of them. I realized I could do this on my desktop as well. Anyways my phone froze while I had Firefox open, and I realized my tabs on there were all missing... I decided not to panic yet because I could still get to them on my desktop. Turns out when I open the "synced tabs" pane on my desktop which is logged into the same firefox account.. none of the 100+ tabs are there anymore either. How do I actually contact someone that can revert my sync status or whatever to a previous state so I can get my tabs and stuff back that I had open? Firefox crashing on my phone SHOULD NOT EVER somehow close all of those tabs on BOTH the phone and the computer. I guess the crash of firefox somehow wiped them out, and then my desktop synced with that account, realized those tabs were "closed" and cleared the list there as well.

HELP??

This has happened to me before, but now it's really bad. I can't save ANY photos to my computer. For example, when I right click to save an image, say on Pinterest, and go to save it a file extension doesn't appear. When I click on the drop down menu for file type nothing shows up either.

I followed these suggestions, but no go.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1249717 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1248840

Also, I don't have the option:

network.http.accept.default = text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8 => text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8

in my about:config.

I've cleared the cache and cookies and I had just did a clean install of the most recent update when I re-installed Windows 10. This is very frustrating to me because I save a lot of images from various sources. I'd really appreciate any and all help.

Thank you!

Ublock global filtering of 3rd party domains, when accessing someother domain, but partial whitelist of 3rd party domain when accessed directly- Is it possible?

Suppose i want to access 123newss.com, which uses technology from t.com I create a ublock "global-filter" of the domain t.com, that blocks loading of t.com at 123newss.com and everywhere else. For some reason i'm a frequent user of t.com, and whenever i try to visit t.com i have to temporary unblock the blocking of t.com. This creates a lot of friction since i'm a frequent user of this url. If i create a ublock/whitelist of domain t.com then ublock allows every tracker to load at t.com, eg. t.com visit triggers loading of 21trackers.com.

The idea is - Block tracking urls globally, but allow auto whitelisting of urls when visited directly. Analogy: prevent embedded yt videos from loading in arbitrary website, but allow when you have visited 125yt.com, without also allowing every other 21trackers.com domains at 125yt.com from loading. Sounds like containerization or "cross-site" url loading block. Is it possible or am i missing something?

Recently encountered a problem bookmarking web-sites using my tags list. When I type the initial letter, eg: o, the first tag, alphabetically, beginning with 'o' is indicated. But my bookmark is automatically saved there instead of letting me choose a preferred tag from the drop down list. In order to bookmark in my desired tag the only way is to scroll through the whole list and tick my preferred tag. How can I return to the former method? Hope someone has a solution. I have the latest firefox update.

I have a IIS 7.5 web server but FireFox won't allow access. All other browsers work fine but not firefox.

I get the error PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. I need to know what is wrong with the server as otherwise people won't be able to use FireFox to view the site.
