Hi Folks,

I've used Firefox for years with no problem. Yesterday, I was seeking out a specific font. The website looked legit, but then a security block happened and I don't recall if it was Firefox security or Acronis that flashed a brief "block" announcement. In any case, from that point on, several "racey" websites popped up every time I loaded Firefox. This happened even after I restarted my computer. I then checked to see if I had pop-ups blocked on the Firefox options. I didn't, so I checked the box against pop-ups. But what happens now is Firefox does an attempt to load TWICE with an odd jerk-flash movement. Only one Firefox browser window comes up -- and that's good -- but SOMETHING is still trying to make those "racey" websites load. Why? How?

All of that to say that I'm concerned about security. Should I uninstall Firefox and reinstall?

Thanks for your input! Bob Anderson

I am facing this error message while streaming videos. But it doesn't appear in every video, just on some few websites. Things I have tried so far: clearing cache & cookies but failed reinstalled firefox but failed disabled add ons, even started firefox in safe mode but failed reinstalled windows a few days ago but still same.

I have tried using different browsers such as chrome, opera, edge and it works fine in all of them. Is there any solution for this issue?

Just phony (in house) remedies that never work- probably why Mozilla is history!)

This is a minor issue, but it's really annoying me. I like having certain pages pinned on the page that opens when I open a new tab; it's easier than always having to search through my many bookmarks for pages I use every day. But I find it really annoying and unhelpful – and also embarrassing, if another person is there – that Firefox only allows me to do this if I also allow it to display sites I've visited. The two should be completely separate in my opinion, like on Chrome. I can delete individual sites, but they're just replaced with other, even less relevant ones. So now I have a blank, useless new tab page, instead of a helpful one that shows me the sites I need to get to, because I don't want to risk a coworker, friend, or family member randomly seeing whatever sites I may have visited once or twice months ago. (This doesn't have to be extreme (porn, etc) to be embarrassing; I don't necessarily want people to see that I've been shopping for jewelry or hair dye or whatever.) It's just unprofessional and unnecessary. Thanks for fielding my complaint.

I have tried everything and cannot manage to load any webpage that prompts a reCAPTCHA. The tab immediately crashes.

1- I've tried several webpages. They all work well until a reCAPTCHA pops up, the tab crashes and creates a dump file 2- I tried uninstalling Firefox, including erasing profiles and all Mozilla folders then reinstalling, and selecting refresh. It sill happens. No addons or extensions, and HW acceleration on and off 3- The problems goes away if I run Firefox on Troubleshooting Mode

Version is 94.0.2 (64 bit) running on Windows 10 21H1 on an i7 1165G7

Am I missing something? Is there a way to do a cleaner install?

Thanks for the help!

I have a new PC with Windows 11. Setting default programs in 11 is very complicated. My email client is Microsoft Outlook (https://outlook.live.com/owa/), which is accessed through the Firefox browser. When I get an email with an email link it defaults to "mailto", which defaults to the Windows Mail app, which I do not use. How can I make "mailto" default to Microsoft Outlook (https://outlook.live.com/owa/) running through Firefox?

Thanks, Jerry

I usually work with my bookmarks side bar open all the time. Until recently whenever I bookmarked a page it wourld show at the bottom of the 'other bookmarks' section. Now, I seem to have a 'recently bookmarked' section where everything goes. (Possibly I always had this section - just never used it!). If I move a newly arrived bookmark either to one of my saving folders or to or the 'other bookmarks' and then delete it from the 'recently bookmarked' section the bookmark in the folder is deleted as well. I'd like to go back to my simple life please..............

I use the bookmark bar very heavily and my workflow was to just "drag" the tab with the mouse to folder in the bookmark bar, which would unfold and I drop the tab/bookmark in the desired sub-folder.

This worked really well for me, and was fast.

Recently, this stopped working. I can still drop a bookmark in one of the main folders in the bookmark bar. But not in any sub-folder, since the main folder closes as soon as I move the mouse inside it. It is also not possible anymore to move the already-saved bookmarks around via drag&drop.

Hi,

I have a fresh installation of my Macbook OS, and a fresh Mozilla Firefox installation. I would like to re-import my old passwords and log ins, but it seems that the new version of the browser doesn't have that option unfortunately. I can see only Import from Other Platforms options, but not import from file or similar.

I have .csv file, but no option of how to import in into my browser.

I would appreciate help on this one. Thank you in advance.
