My Windows Task Scheduler contains an entry called "Firefox Default Browser Agent". If I delete it, it returns. If I disable it, it re-enables itself. How do I NUKE this permanently?

I already have telemetry and automatic updates both turned off.

A related problem is that the About Firefox window keeps saying "Firefox is being updated by another instance", even though I always "Dismiss" the prompt to download the latest version. (I'm using v107.0.)

I am sending in a new laptop to HP(Windows 11) for service on the keyboard and want to physically remove the stored passwords setup and synced via my Firefox sign-in, but want to make sure they do not get removed or get unsynced to my account(so can still use on existing Firefox at home). I see where you may find the location of the directory which they are stored, so can you simply delete or clear that directory on the HP device before sending out for service? Will it re-sync when PC is back at home and not effect my other live devices I will be using?

Hello all, just yesterday I noticed my Yahoo inbox was not fully loading and even when it finished loading, I have had the same few messages showing, a series of just gray bars below that, no ads, etc. and will not allow me to delete or perform commands. When I check the box by an email it simply takes me to the email, as happens if I do so before it's fully finished loading. It is as if it is still trying to load somewhere in the ether land, since there is no indication on my toolbar that it's working. I've tried everything except removing it from Firefox. I thought it was my internet service but all is fine with other sites and Yahoo mail works fine on Safari. It's never happened before. Many thanks for your help.

I installed Firefox on my new laptop (Same product, Windows 10) and now I keep getting the "The WidevineCDM plugin has crashed" error message on streaming platforms. I have reinstalled Firefox, restarted it, cleared my startup cache, and refreshed it to no avail. I have never had this problem before so I am not not sure what could be suddenly causing this problem.

Hi,

No matter what I do, a google dialogue box encouraging me to use google for password management, pops up every time I go to a site, new or existant.

I've gone into my google account to disable such requests, and, indeed, otherwise use google for nothing....not even search............but they keep coming anyway.

am using ubuntu 20.04, and no other utility or code is giving me this trouble.

I want to stop this dialogue box and eliminate any code in firefox or ubuntu which supports it.....as I have no idea why this box showed up....one day it just started.

Many thanks!

I'm porting a chrome extension to firefox: it clearly loads on the page as I see some of it working. But other things are not happening. There are no errors in either the page or the background page. So I wanted to set a breakpoint in my content page, and I followed the instruction on this page: https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/debugging/#debugging-content-scripts Which clearly shows extensions icons in the Sources/Main Thread.

But for me, there are none. The first screenshot is from the page where the extension is loaded no extension is listed, the second is from the background page for the temporary extension.

In Firefox 107.0.1 64-bit (Windows 10)

When looking at the console, the response tab no longer shows rendered HTML code - the response is blank.

Only if I select "Raw" over on the right do I see anything - only code.

Is this new behaviour from Firefox, or have I inadvertently changed an option?

The only way to now see the rendered page is through the "Network" tab.

Please see images.

I was updating Firefox on my on my computer, Mac OS 10.11.6( I know, I know…). Now The current version of FF won’t run and I am unable to upgrade the operating system because it so old. Is there a way to figure out which version of FF I had? Its slightly overwhelming to look at the choices of older versions to download. Any help is appreciated. Been a FF supporter forever and love it!

Every day, I get multiple bookmarks added to my list that I do not want. They include, among others, things like Get Involved (there are at least dozens of these), About Firefox (again, Dozens), Help and Tutorials (many added). They clog my bookmarks on all things that access Firefox (work computer, home computer, IPhone, IPad) and the only way is to go in an delete them. I don't want nor do I need multiple versions of any of these. For that matter, I don't want even one of each added to my bookmarks. I've looked for help but unless you are a tech expert it's almost impossible to understand how to do that. I just want it to stop or I want to know how to stop it in the simplest way possible.

Video playback stutters in Firefox and Firefox Nightly but not in an external player (mpv) or Edge. Hardware acceleration on/off makes no difference. Using the latest Radeon driver 22.11.2. Most noticeable during slow pan like this https://youtube.com/clip/Ugkx7jP_XuVB7i-O6ljGHQ_NjPmEakzvD7yM

The video playback stuttering isn't new but I only stated looking into it now. No idea how long it's been like this. At first I thought it might be caused by running my monitors at true 120Hz and 60Hz instead of a fractional framerate but then the stuttering should be visible on other apps too. Switching to a fractional 60 didn't change anything in Firefox.

I run Parallels on my Macbook 14" and have downloaded both Mac and Windows verison of Firefox. In Windows verison I can close the active TAB I'm currently in by clicking on the X, however Mac version does not allow this. I must select another TAB and then close the orginal one I wanted to close.

The same is true for the refresh button, in Mac the button is not active but in Windows it is.

I'm currently testing my website using FF's RDM, I have HTML 5 video with two sources, one Webm and one MP4 encoded according to the mozilla dev pages' advice on codecs.

The video, when clicking play or the video itself, advances one frame and pauses again under all User Agents bundled into Responsive Design Mode. If I click quickly and repeatedly it will eventually play properly. The thumbnail renders properly and the progress bar indicates that the video has loaded properly.

The video works as intended on Desktop (Windows & Linux), my Pixel 4a (FF & Chrome), my friend's S20FE (One of the UAs in RDM), and StackOverflow doesn't seem to have any input on my code, so the one last thing to check is with people who know more about Responsive Design Mode.

I prefer to update Firefox manually, so in my Firefox settings, I have it set to: "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

So I sometimes get a message when I launch Firefox saying "Update available. Download the latest version of Firefox." and I click "Dismiss"

Today, I launched Firefox (v107.0), got this update message, and clicked "Dismiss". However, when I go to About Firefox, it says "Firefox is being updated by another instance".

Why is Firefox ignoring my preference?

I just started to run FF107, I don't understand why setting the compact option, do not really make things more dense. Same goes with all the menu.

Who needs all that spacing?

I have this

menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {

 padding-block: 2px !important;

}

in the css file and still no "compactness"...

Thank you.
