Hello


When it comes to add-ons, then I add three of four at once or the same purpose, I try them all out, decide if I want to keep any of them, and then remove the ones I see that do not serve my target. All normal.


I know that it requires permission in order to have an add-on show in Private Browsing, that's done.

Now I had 8 add-ons on the toolbar, I disabled two or three of them so I can try two new ones. I did not like the new ones, so I just enabled the ones I had disabled, which where previously showing in the toolbar, all of this in Private Browsing having the permission of showing them.


As I enabled the add-ons again, they are not showing anymore in the toolbar..!!

Okay, I removed them and re-added them..not showing. I also did: not allow in Private Mode, then re-allowed..not showing. I simply restarted the browser in both normal and Private Mode, and yet not showing.. I also restarted my pc, and retried all previous steps again

  • This mainly happened as I removed the extension from toolbar, then added it again.

Still also 90% of the time, just disable then enable again, and only a few are showing again. Either when disabled then re-enabled or when removed then re-added*


So, what to do ?

I have used Bing with no problems for years now, recently it has been giving a banner at the top whenever I use it stating that a website is slowing the browser, then options stop or wait. I have never had this before. It comes up on every page that is opened in Bing. I have waited and never seen a web page open or anything. Also, none of the functions on the Bing page are working. I cannot click the three bar link for more options, change the safe search option, or sign in to my Microsoft account. All these links are dead. When on a page I cannot use the filter link. I also cannot click on anything at all while the banner notice is up. I have tried to get help form Microsoft and they were unable to do anything. They suggested using their browser Edge. They suggested emptying the cache, which I did with no change, and they suggested uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it. I do not want to do this because it will destroy al my formatting and lose lots of links, etc... as it has every other time I have done this. I hope someone here will be able to help me. I prefer Bing search engine to all the others. I have tried Google and DuckDuckGo and they do not work for me, or find what I am searching for as well as Bing has. The others seem to be more for purchasing and not searching and so I do not like or trust them. Using Windows 10 on a Desk top PC, and had no trouble with Bing until the last week or so.

Hi - Suddenly, I am not able to view The Globe and Mail website from my Firefox browser. When I click a link, it goes to the page (i can see the URL is correct), but the screen is blank - no error message, nothing (image attached). If i copy and paste the URL directly from Firefox browser to another browser (have tried Chrome and Edge), the site comes up fine.

Help!

Firefox used to revert to default printer settings every time we make an attempt to print. This was ideal for us since we are a business that prints the same style of documents frequently throughout the day, only requiring us to change the settings as needed for one-offs that had different requirements. It was very efficient.

Since the latest update, Firefox "remembers" any changes in printer settings for the next time it prints. So, when we make changes for those one-offs, the next batch of prints are coming out wrong. It is wasting a lot of paper and time.

Is there an option somewhere in Firefox's about:config that turns off Firefox's print settings memory, and forces it to revert to the default printer settings?

Hi. I was a constant user of Firefox until a year or so ago. The bloat came in and I followed the hordes to Chrome. Chrome now has similar problems, (21 instances for 3 sites? Really?), so I looked into Firefox once more and found it has apparently been updated. I took the plunge and reinstalled looking forward to easier browsing again. Hmmm.

I am a user of ebay and pay via Paypal. (Just saying that, I guess some of you know what is coming now.) I use Eset Internet Security which has always been very secure, easy to manage and has never given a problem with ebay or Paypal in any way with Chrome. I have it set to open a separate secure browser for Paypal transactions. Using Firefox I cannot get any Paypal transaction to complete.

It has a variety of issues which I seem to meet at random on the way. Sometimes it just refuses to start, the circling icon sits in the small secure browser screen which is empty white and spins ad infinitum. Sometimes it gets to an authentication screen with a picture of a code to type in, except the code is missing and the box is empty white. If I refresh, it shows the code but the first entry is always incorrect then the second entry, if I am offered it, is accepted and I continue to login. Once the login details have been entered and I see the message confirming the data has been sent to www.paypal.com, sometimes it stalls here again and never gets beyond that. Very occasionally I get past this and see a yellow pling with the message "Looks like this action is not supported. Please return and report this error so that we can support it in the future. (invalid client_ID or redirect_uri)". Well I am reporting it but I'm not holding my breath as this problem has been around for months if other people are to be believed.

I have cleared all cookies and caches and restarted Firefox. Nothing. I found a thread here where someone advised turning off location blocking for Paypal. No difference. Payments go through fine with Chrome so it can't be my security settings external to the browser, (Eset), and it can't be a Paypal issue. What is wrong with Firefox that such a necessary piece of functionality is either broken or is so unusual to set up that so many people, (I've searched so I have seen them), cannot make it work?

Any advice on this will be warmly welcomed.

HELP!!

Comcast keeps dropping my home network IP address ONLY when I am using the Firefox browser.

When I open the browser to access the internet (any site) within a few minutes or less the home network IP address is dropped by Comcast and I lose the internet. This does NOT happen when I am using Chrome.

My laptop wi-fi can still see - and connect to - other wi-fi networks in the vicinity and if I turn off the wi-fi for a few seconds and then turn it back on again connection is restored.

I have raised this issue with Comcast four (4) times and they have not addressed the issue, so my choice now is: stop using Firefox, keep turning the wi-fi off and on again or..........?

Can someone please tell me what is going on here and ideally how to to fix this issue - thank you.

I can sign in to my Ebay account from Google Chrome no problem......gets right in.

I can also sign in with Microsoft Edge.............no problem.

But EVERYTIME I sign in to Ebay with Firefox, I have to use Captcha....not once, but 2 times!!

Why ONLY Firefox??

How can I turn off Captcha?

It is unnecessary, it is annoying, it is a pain in the A__.

PS Firefox is my Browser of choice. I'd rather not have to switch.

Immediately after starting Firefox, if I try to open one of a couple of different links from the Firefox homepage, it will fail to load on the first try. At the moment, this only occurs with gmail (http://mail.google.com/mail/?hl=en&tab=wm#inbox or https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/#inbox) and reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/all or https://www.reddit.com), and occurs when trying from either the Homepage's Top Sites or from my Bookmarks toolbar.
