Hi,

I am on windows 10/FF 78.01 and I have a batch file that on closure saves many things to another disk. Recently I added the saving of my Firefox profiles folder. I had read that when exporting/saving this folder one should ensure that Firefox is closed. Is there a tidy way of closing Firefox in my .bat script?

Currently I am using the cmd taskkill /F /IM firefox.exe but I notice that when I reload Firefox it restarts pretty well exactly where it left off rather than starting with my standard set of tabs as defined in my option 'Use current pages'. It's not a big deal but it would nice to know if there is a correct way to close FF that gives the same restart result as when I do a manual hit 'x' /Close n tabs. Thank you

Paypal Homepage Crashes Windows - OK when FFOX restarted with disabled Add-ons...BUT.....

I've had a problem whereby when I access www.paypal.com using Firefox [v78.0.1 32 or 64 bit on 64 bit Win10 Home System], there is a 'video error' of some sort and Windows will often blue screen. Extra Info: I discovered from another PC that the Paypal Homepage dislays an MP4 video.

It does not happen with Chrome based browesers or 'legacy' Edge. It does not happen on a Windows 10 PRO system that is set up in a similar manner the one that crashes. It seems not to happen when I 'Restart with Add-ons disabled' [via the Help 'drop-down'].

It does happen with Add-ons enabled and ALSO with Add-ons MANUALLY disabled.

I thought that I may have a video driver software/firmware error or video card hardware error but as it 'seems' not to happen when I 'Restart with Add-ons disabled' [via the Help 'drop-down'],

                                                                                                              (I tried a good number of times)

I assume it's not a video card driver or H/W error (?)

My initial question is: 'Is there a difference between:

  1.  'Restart with Add-ons disabled' [via the Help 'drop-down']

and

  2. Manually disabling all Add-ons [not plugins]

If anyone has any ideas, I would be grateful [thanks in advance].

                                                 [Attached are snapshots of the: problem; Add-ons; and Plugs-ins]

Obtaining the full Firefox download from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ has worked through versions 78.0.1. It is not showing version 78.0.2, which is now available (it still only downloads 78.0.1). The full download from this web site through version 78.0.1 has updated Firefox *AND* the Mozilla Maintenance Service. Downloading the 78.0.2 update via the browser only updates the browser, but not the Mozilla maintenance service. Does it matter anymore? Will this be fixed, perhaps via the migration to Firefox accounts? Maybe this service is no longer required for more recent versions of Firefox?

Up to now I have used the URL https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ to download and test new versions of Firefox on various machines. It is somewhat troubling that this option does not appear to be working. Does anyone know if this is a temporary hiccup or a permanent change?

This may be a question for Mozilla people to answer.

Thanks

Hello, i've just updated my firefox developer edition from 78.0b9 to 79.0b1 (64-Bit) Now a HTML5 Game in the first tab freezes when i'm opening a website (google or mozilla or any other) in a second tab. Occures with the HTML5 Versions of Shakes&Fidget and Forge of Empires, which i play. No problem with latest version of the normal Firefox (77.0.1 64-Bit) and the previous dev edition 78.0b9 64-Bit. My OS is Windows 10 Pro Version 2004 Build 19041.329

I've tried in private browsing since that eliminates any possible conflict with extensions but it doesnt work either.

I've updated firefox and it doesnt make a difference.

I don't know what else to do, I'd rather not have to switch browsers.

I've been using Firefox for years but this morning it stopped working. the little firefox button just kept moving left-right and never found the page. Eventually I gave up and uninstalled firefox but when I tried to reinstall it, it states that firefox was previously installed and allows me to reinstall. when I do that it always gives an error message that it was unsuccessful.

I can't get spellcheck to work. I'm using Firefox on a Mac. This is true even when using a box with multiple lines.

I have ticked the box in preferences that says Check your spelling as you type. I have a language chosen - English (United Kingdom). I tried installing a different dictionary in Add-ons, but it made no difference.

I've gone into about:config and adjusted the settings in layout.spellcheckDefault and checked services.sync.prefs.sync.layout.spellcheckDefault, which made no difference.

I've read posts that say to right click and look at the dictionaries, but this doesn't work for me (could be because I'm using a Mac). Same with pressing Control.

Any thoughts?

I'm on an iMac running mac OS Catalina (version 10.15.5). Using Firefox (78.0.2) the Centriq login page (https://app.mycentriq.com/) has stopped loading recently. Firefox has been updated since I last logged in successfully. The login page does properly load using Safari web browser. So, I believe something has changed with the recent Firefox update that is preventing the Centriq login page to load. The one thing I have tried, but did not work, is to turn off Enhanced Tracking Protection for the login page. All help is appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,

See attached for details. One feature I'm trying to setup with FF is search engine query URL shortcuts. Basically, it allows the user to type a letter and it auto enables that URL. In this case, we're using Reddit. Basically, it allow us to type 'R' followed by a space which then auto populates the query URL. We can then type in our requested subreddits. However, I haven't been able to get this to work with FF. The search engine function add-on in firefox only enables a general search instead of subreddit specific. Would love to hear any feedback and/or solutions. Thanks in advance.

Firefox used to allow a hack to add a custom search engine to the search engine list. This allowed users to make custom engines the DEFAULT search engine. (Engines can be added to Bookmarks but then they require a keyword to activate. Default engines do not require a keyword to activate).

The way to do it was: 1) place a folder called "searchplugins" with your custom .xml file describing your search engine (i.e.,, a URL with a %s added to it) inside your Home folder on a Linux OS.

2) open the Web Console

3) input: Services.search.addEngine("file:///home/user/searchplugins/custom-engine.xml", null, null, false);

4) now your custom search engine would appear in the search engine listing in Firefox and could be made default

On recent Firefoxes, this no longer works. When I inter the Sevices.search.addEngine part to the Web Console, I get this message: "ReferenceError: Services is not define"

I've been using Google Chrome because of stuff like this. Firefox just doesn't allow me to do what I want to do. But I appreciate Mozilla ideals and am trying to give Firefox another chance. But it is contingent on being able to make my custom search engine the default search engine.

Is there a fix for this error I'm encountering in the Web Console?

I'm using Fedora 32 and I have the middle mouse button disabled in the gnome tweak tool. But for whatever reason, Firefox seems to ignore this. What I really want is for Firefox to stop closing tabs when I have the mouse cursor hovered over a tab and I touch the wrong part (the middle) of the touch pad. This is just a huge usability problem. I'm killing tabs all the time, sometimes with forms and email messages in them. Help?

I don’t have access to it from my home IP, because I have always used the plugin, but now none of the plugins want to work in my browser.

Ever since the end of February Firefox has had a habit of crashing on me at random, usually just a tab or so but there's been times where the whole browser just ups and crashes. I am using Firefox 73.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Professional computer.

1. This mainly occurs when viewing a video (mostly Youtube), scrolling down on pages, or opening or switching to a new tab.

2. Beforehand if there were issues it would take a few seconds to load the tab, now it just instantly crashes.

3. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, clearing everything, turning off add-ons, and changing options and nothing has worked. At best, I've stopped it from crashing on launch and disabling add-ons.

4. This issue does not happen on other browsers, nor has my computer shown any unusual behavior.

5. It did not start immediately with the new update, which I got the 20th. It started occurring a week or so after.
