Hi,

A bit of an odd one this I think. Have already read all the other threads regarding search problems and pretty sure this isn't the same thing at all.

No matter what I type into the URL / search box it first very quickly flashes up with a Google link (which is what I have set in my preferences for Firefox [I'm using the Developer Edition] to use) then it redirects to Yahoo and uses their search instead.

I have checked all plugins / extensions in Firefox and there are none installed that would do anything like this.

Luckily I was able to halt the browser from performing the redirect so I copied the URL that shows before being redirected to Yahoo.

This is the sort of URL that I am getting :

https://www.google.com/search?q=dog&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-ab

Notice the &client=firefox-b-ab at the end. If I take that off the end of the URL then it searches as it should do with Google however with me not changing the URL (which happens automatically as soon as I type something in to search) then it redirects to Yahoo which leads me to believe that Google is redirecting Firefox based upon the fact that it is Firefox?

Why they would do that is utterly beyond me though?

Thanks for any help with this as I'd really love to be able to get back to having Google as my default search engine again as soon as possible.

Best wishes,

Mark

I just downloaded Firefox developer edition, and Firefox nightly edition. The problem happens on both of my Linux Mint 18.3 and Linux Mint 19 systems. I can run Firefox developer edition straight away. Problem happens when I launch the Firefox Nightly edition, the regular Firefox pops up. If I open the regular Firefox again, a new window in Nightly opens if the Nightly is already launched. After opening and saving tabs, the tabs are shown on the regular Firefox, and vice versa. This doesn't happens for Firefox Developer Edition. How can I fix that? Please help!

Hello!

I'm using firefox dev edition, both Mendeley and Evernote addons have stopped working with PDF files.

I have reset the key "disable_full_page_plugin_for_types" in about:config (using right click > reset), because the value was "application/pdf" (now is blank) but I see no improvements.

When using the web version of the pdf.js both clippers work as expected https://mozilla.github.io/pdf.js/web/viewer.html

What am I doing wrong?

I just confirmed that all my new bookmarks are losing the folder I'm assigning to them. Now the last aprox. 20 are in "Other Bookmarks". I saw this before but I thought that I was forgetting to add a folder when I bookmarked a page, but I'm now sure that the new bookmarks are losing the folder at an unspecified time. I can't find any related info and can't create an account in bugzilla to report it. Any help? Thanks.

Update 1: I've disabled Test Pilot add-ons as mentioned below, and at first it seemed fine (I opened the Bookmarks sidebar all the time to watch them, and today they were exactly as I left them yesterday). Later, I was checking the bookmarks in my phone after syncing them and there were differences: a lot of bookmarks I had fixed yesterday now showed again in "Other Bookmarks" (only in the phone, they are ok in the PC); also, I created a subfolder and moved several bookmarks there in the desktop, but in the phone shows the folder empty and the bookmarks are in the previous outside folder (they still are ok in the PC). Another issue: I just came back to the PC and 2 pages I'd bookmarked yesterday with a folder lose it and are now in "Other Bookmarks". I think that all of these issues are related to the Syncing process. At this moment, there are differences between the PC and the phone even if I manually sync both. It's messed up.

Hi, Yesterday I upgraded my Ubuntu 16.04 (apt-get update && apt-get upgrade) and my Firefox Beta upgraded to Beta 62.0b6 (64-bit). However when I restarted it, all my add-ons were disabled, and I can't re-enable them. I was also log out of Firefox Sync, but still have my history and saved password (so I guessed my profile is still ok ?) Does anyone have the same problem ?

I tried to get it back, downloaded a xpi via Chromium, but this error kept coming back. And it's not only Ublock Origin, any other add-on gives the same error. I deleted the extension* files using Troubleshooting - did not help at all

EDIT: Okay, seems I didn't quite look thoroughly enough before asking this, apparently an add-on for "Ninja Download Manager" was causing problems. Please disregard this question, I apologize for wasting anyone's time.

For some reason, a lot of my downloads end up with strange names and without a file extension. For example:

If I try to save a PDF file from my university with the following link. https://mylo.X.edu.au/d2l/le/content/235142/topics/files/download/2789744/DirectFileTopicDownload the file gets saved as "DirectFileTopicDownload" (that is part of the link, it has not been replaced or changed like the X has).

Alternatively, when I try to download executable files, often I end up with a string of numbers and letters which Im fairly certain is related to the files in question, though I can't tell how ( a quick google search of the string tends to lead to a related site etc.). FOr example, when trying to download a companion app for the firefox extention VideoDownloadHelper, i get the extension-less file "c036135a-7faa-11e8-87ad-cc9be00dd6d8"

I would appreciate any help in this matter, bearing in mind I have reinstalled Firefox once already.

How to make Firefox re-autodiscover proxy autoconfiguration?

Firefox supports automatic discovery of a proxy autoconfiguration script. Specifically, in “Preferences | General | Network Proxy | Settings”, I can choose “(*) Auto-detect proxy settings for this network”, and Firefox will attempt to download <http://wpad/wpad.dat> and use it as the proxy autoconfiguration script.

Sometimes, I want to add another condition to wpad.dat. In order to do that, I use ssh to log in to the machine that hosts wpad for my home network, and edit the wpad.dat file.

Now my question is, how can I reliably cause my running Firefox to re-download wpad.dat, without having to restart Firefox?

Things I have tried (that don’t solve my issue):

  • Turn “≡ | More | Work Offline” on and back off.
  • In “Preferences | General | Network Proxy | Settings”, choose “(*) No proxy”, then choose “(*) Auto-detect” again.
  • In “Preferences | General | Network Proxy | Settings”, choose “(*) No proxy”, click “OK”, click “Settings” again, then choose “(*) Auto-detect” again.

Also, there is an option “(*) Automatic proxy configuration URL” that has an input box and a “Reload” button. Entering “http://wpad/wpad.dat” in the box and clicking “Reload” does in fact reload wpad.dat, but requires entering the URL. I would like to avoid that, preferring autodetection via DNS. The “Reload” button is disabled when autodetection is selected.

There are several support questions on this topic. However I can't get their recommendations to work.

I've deleted the possibly corrupt xulstore.json or Localstore.rdf file. Is there something else I can check? Maybe it's using a profile in a different location than %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles on Windows?

I am currently on version 62.0b14 64-bit.
