Hi, I dealt with this problem several time and I decided to write down my solution to save of others time. In case you install firefox on Windows 7 and your htm, html files are showing blank white icon instead of little foxxy one, all you need to do to go for registry as below: - I am using Firefox v.84, ues problem is there since firefox v.2 - - Type regedit and go for "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML-308046B0AF4A39CB\DefaultIcon", perhabs you see a differentt number beside FirefoxHTML or even no number - - Double click on Default key and change the value to "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe,1", not to mention without "" - Don't forget to backup whole your registry before editing it - Restart and you will probably see the Firefox icon on your saved html files

Good luck

A couple of annoying things have happened since I switched to Firefox as my main browser: • clicking on ‘mail to’ links no longer takes me to outlook, which is my main email provider • all of my PDF files stored in ‘my documents’ have been converted into Firefox web files I’d like these restored to my previous settings but can’t see how to do this!

By using refresh Firefox to "fix" problems with slowness, I have lost all of my bookmarks and God knows what else. And I can't access the files that were created, all I get is gibberish. Why didn't Firefox inform me that using refresh would fubar ("fouled" up beyond all recognition) my computer? I desperately need to undo the damage caused by using this (dis)service. And how do I contact Firefox to tell them how badly they have screwed me over?

Some time in the last month or so Firefox has started downloading .csv files as .json. I need the files in .csv format so I can work with them in Excel. These are large files I don't want to deal with the trouble of converting them every time. I've started using Chrome just so the files download correctly. I can't find any setting to change to make .csv the default again.

long story short, if I go on amazon.com it redirects me amazon.com.br without asking me, no pop-ups, no "amazon wants to know you location" it just looks at my IP and send me away, also, if I do something like amazon.co.uk it will prompt me for "would you like to be redirected to amazon.com.br?" and I don't want that either, if I could go to amazon.jp it's all the same for me

note: 1: I used amazon as an example, this happens with eBay, YouTube, Bing, reddit, facebook, PayPal, or any other website that is available on a .br domain 2: I don't want to use a VPN or any Proxy server, I'm not rich, I can't pay 129.99 a year for a browser extesion, and there are free ones, but they bring my 120Mb/s connection to a grinding halt 3: this is most likely my ISP / IP being broadcasting my location without my consent, while some websites do ask me to allow it, my IP most of the time will basically lay open on the table and tell the website "if you wanna look, it's there" 3.2: this is especially annoying with the advertisements saying stuff like "80% of gamers in [USER_CITY] love this RPG" and I'm like, really? a backwater christian town where only 20% of the population have TVs and 5% of those 20% have broadband connection?

in short, I don't want any websites to know where I am

When I use Firefox on my PC it remembers all of my passwords and logins and fills them in for me automatically. Aren’t those brought over to Firefox on my iPhone? I can’t get it to remember my passwords in the app even when I fill them in manually. The support articles asks me to do things that are not appearing as directed on my phone and I can’t get this to work. I’m tired of looking up and typing in passwords of websites I frequent all the time on my Firefox pc browser. What am I doing wrong?

bold textGsync Add on has gone. - Thanks for warning us! How on early do I sync contacts now with Gmail?

Every time I get an upgrade something else changes. Having used this system now since 2008, I am finally thinking of giving up and transferring to Outlook again. I do this with great regret - but I am really not cut out for the Thunderbird world.

So If there is a solution, I might stay, but its become too much of a hassle now - I have also subscribed funds for many years.

I first noticed it when I plugged in my new screen for the first time. It's quite a bit larger than my old one, and I think Firefox doesn't really recognize it.

The specific steps I take to fix it temporarily (per session) are as follows:

Press alt to show the menu bar

Select View > Toolbars > Uncheck Bookmarks Toolbar

Same steps again except to check the Bookmarks Toolbar checkbox again. Then everything is normal.

Interestingly it is never the same amount of bookmarks that aren't shown, always differs by 2 or three before it cuts off and shows just empty space.

Thanks.

I would like to setup a new domain that I registered at Go Daddy to start receiving email using Thunderbird as my email client. Go Daddy asked me to supply them with the information (MX records, etc) from Thunderbird to add to the domain's DNS records. I don't know what that information is. I also need help with the account setup at Thunderbird so that it will be configured to receive and send emails properly.

My new domain is caryneyes.com

This is going for months, right now the only fix seems to switch to Opera... Can you guys provide solutions to this?

I have what I think is a specific video problem. Videos from the Washington Post get the message “This video is currently not available”. Other videos, e.g. from the New York Times do work. Washington Post videos work with Chrome and Opera.

The problem is on a new Dell Inspiron 5502 running Windows 10 and Ubuntu with dual boot. The problem only occurs under Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS. It does not occur under Windows Firefox.

The current Firefox is 84.0.2. The problem did occur under 84.0 but I didn’t have time to pursue it.

The add-ons manager under extensions has no entries. Under plugins there is only “OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems”.

Under preferences, performance, hardware acceleration is not selected and the content process limit is left at 8.

Running in safe mode does not help.

I had a different video problem on a pair of the hardware visible at https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1320396?utm_campaign=questions-reply&utm_source=notification&utm_medium=email#answer-1381141 This is a different machine and a different problem.

Apparently the last update lost my contacts. The address books are still there, but there are no contacts in them. They all seem to be empty address books.

Not sure if this part is relevant, but...

While searching the forum for an fix I noticed others had similar problems that were supposedly fixed in update version 78x. I checked my version, it said 68x on the updates page of the options menu. However, when I checked the update history, it said it was version 78x. I unchecked the automatic updates (may have been in safe mode as that was one of recommendations I found) and checked for updates and it said version 68x was available. Thinking this might bring back my contacts since 78x seemed to have borked the address book, I updated it. Didn't help, but now it says it's up to date with version 68x and version 78x doesn't seem to be available. The history shows it updated 68x on Oct 1 after 78x was updated on Sep 15.

I've used Thunderbird for over 10 years and never had a serious problem before. This is very frustrating as I had over 100 contacts, many with a charity that I help.

How can I get my contacts back without re-entering them manually?

Thanks.

Hi everyone! I am looking for some help on how to fix my problem. Yesterday, suddenly videos on Firefox stopped having sound and in one particular website (public television) videos stopped working altogether. These are websites that I use on a daily basis and have been using for months. All of these websites and videos work fine on google Chrome. I am using a desktop and Windows 10 and use DuckDuckgo Privacy essentials. These are the things I have done to troubleshoot: -restarted computer _restarted Firefox in Safe Mode -checked the volume mixer -checked the App volume device preferences on Windows -signed off my firefox account and logged in without an account -refreshed Firefox -Uninstalled and installed Firefox

On my laptop (Windows 7) everything still works fine as usual.

Any tip or advice will be much appreciated. Please bare in mind that I have a very basic computer knowledge. many thanks Poppy
