I'm running into a frequent problem. After using firefox for an amount of time, my bookmarks and history become "frozen".

The bookmark become kind of "read-only", I can't add, remove, or move any bookmarks at all.

As for history, pressing Ctrl-H still shows the links I visited, but all sites I visited after firefox "freezing" disappears once I restart the browser. All visited links don't change color to deep blue either.

As a result, I need to restart Firefox frequently. What is going on?

I love Firefox, it's the main browser I use on my desktop. But there are several websites that, when I try to open them, instead of loading the page, they load a plain text version of the page. I've tried the same websites in different browsers but they all show up the same way, but only on my desktop, my laptop loads them just fine. I have no idea why they are like this or what is causing them. I've googled it several times but the only answers I can find are either directed for web developers, which I am not, or list solutions that do not work to fix my problem. I've included a screenshot of what shows up when I try to open up one of the websites - its the same layout for several different pages. They used to work just fine.

I have uninstalled & reinstalled Firefox. I've disabled and enabled my extensions & addons to see if they were causing the issue. I've cleared my history & my cache. None of it has worked.


I've repeatedly tried to upload the image, but I don't know that's working, it just shows it as still uploading. In the event that it doesn't upload, when the pages that are having problems do "load", instead of any links or images or anything, I just get text like this (the ">" and "<" are just to denote where it begins & ends): > Date: Sun, 03 Feb 2019 06:56:47 GMT Server: Apache Pragma: no-cache Cache-Control: private Expires: Mon, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT Vary: Accept-Encoding Set-Cookie: PHPSESSID=ootkqapvnkb4ferdq2ad1vr955; path=/ Last-Modified: Sun, 03 Feb 2019 06:56:49 GMT Keep-Alive: timeout=5, max=100 Connection: Keep-Alive Transfer-Encoding: chunked Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8

I like using Google for internet searches, but can't stand the latest version of Google Maps (which is almost impossible to read). It seems that there is no separate selection in Firefox Options to specify the map program that I want, separate from the search program. For example, if I want to use Windows Maps, I have to set the default search program to Bing. If I set the search program to Google, the system defaults to Google maps.

This feature is totally useless in Firefox as it blocks critical information on the cookie. It is missing information like the XFR_Token that is required! Why is this tool so useless and broken? Why do I have to go to another browser to get a cookie for a site because Firefox does not give all cookie information?

just installed the latest current Firefox update which has reverted my tabs to the top rather than below my bookmarks toolbar.

suffice to say this is rather annoying as changing the "browser.tabs.onTop" setting in the about:config which l originally did doesnt work any more l did find a userchrome.css file as well that said it would do it on this site but alas my tabs are still above the address bar and not below the bookmarks toolbar where l want them. any help to resolve this would be greatly appreciated due to the most recent update causing them to revert back to the top.

What is the preference to set the auto-update policy (in mozilla.cfg or policies.json) ?

Hi,

I use a zillion of different profiles and for some settings, I have to use a "mozilla.cfg" file to not lose my mind (and my disk space, deleting the cache upon closing is mandatory). I use different profiles at the same time, and because auto-update has ALWAYS messed up the browsing sessions, I MUST set the auto-update to manual. Not disable it, I just want to install the update when I'm ready to close ALL my currently opened profiles/browsing sessions.

Now with the new auto-update policy, this gets a mess ...

In the preferences GUI, I tried changing the setting "Automatically update" to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" and monitored about:config, to no avail. No setting gets changed. The most recently created profiles do not even have an "app.update.auto / .enabled" in about:config.

There's the "DisableAppUpdate" in the new policy stuff, but that's not what I want ("This policy turns off application updates").

So, how can I set the manual update setting GLOBALLY ?

Bonus question: the new policy way, compared to the mozilla.cfg way, seems to remove the possibility to pick between DEFAULTING and FORCING a preference (defaultPref / lockPref). Am I right ? If so, why ?

When I'm using Firefox, on reputable sites, this screen pops up, along with a bunch of beeps. It appears to be from Firefox, but I assume it isn't. Where is coming from? Is is dangerous? How do I get rid of it?

I called Apple support, and they helped me run a scan with MalwareBytes (the scan came up clean), but the problem is still recurring. The Apple support person said to contact Firefox.

What happened to the address bar in update 65? It's awful. It use to only show my most visited bookmarks(ie:facebook) or websites I physically typed in. Now it shows everything but that. It makes it super cluttered and overall awful. I have tried messing with the settings and nothing works. I feel like I need to downgrade and disable automatic updates or move to a new explorer all together.

Last night my wife was concerned about a warning she got from friends regarding this momo challenge meme circulating that potentially targets children. We have a 6 year old, so I wanted to research it. I was extremely careful to use the private browsing feature on my _home_ desktop computer. I discovered it's basically a hoax, and was glad to learn I shouldn't be overly concerned about it.

However, today at work I was running a meeting using my _laptop_ work computer with many of my coworkers and sharing my screen on a TV monitor. I open up a new tab during the meeting, and there in the pocket recommendations is the horrible disturbing image of momo. I have _never_ done any searches about this using my work computer.

I am extremely disappointed that my private searches on one machine are obviously being used to provide recommendations via pocket on a complete different computer that I use for work. I think showing recommendations on a new tab is a bad idea altogether. I wish it would just show my homepage. I know there's workarounds to this - but it's the default behavior and I didn't anticipate this kind of problem whatsoever.

I was very flustered by this during the meeting, and even now as I'm writing this. VERY VERY disappointing and makes me not want to use firefox anymore!

As of a week or so ago I've been unable to open images downloaded through firefox (65.0.1 64-bit). When I attempt to open them I get the following error - "it looks like we don't support this file format". Images downloaded through chrome work just fine, the problem appears to be something between firefox and windows.

Having done some searching about this I've adjusted my settings to make file extensions visible and I've done a virus scan but neither of these has helped.

Since a recent firefox update gmail is not remembering my username for my email account. I have to input my details each time, rather than just entering the password. By default I have 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' selected. Under 'exceptions' I have added 'https://mail.google.com' & 'https://accounts.google.com'. This combination has worked for years until the past few weeks. Any ideas?

Hi Everyone, I took out a subscription with the British Film Institute (https://player.bfi.org.uk/subscription)

After registering without difficulty, I found I could only play the "Free" films and not those available on subscription.

BFI Support seem to think it is something to do with a conflict of privacy/security settings and I wondered if anyone had come across anything similar -- or had any good ideas for resolving it?

I am running F/F Quantum 65.0.2 as my main browser, with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, AdBlock and AdBlock Plus.

I have "whitelisted" the BFI site in DuckDuckGo but it has made no difference.

Thanks,

Ian

I'm using Firefox 65.0 and MacOS Mojave and since the last Firefox update the font weight renders too bold. The issue is affecting bookmarks, searching bar text, website content etc. I've unchecked 'Use hardware acceleration when available' and tried other possible solutions that I found online such as set all font to default, reinstall browser, launch it on safe mode, but nothing seems to help. The issue doesn't happen in other browsers.
