Is there a simple way to block a website from ever loading without downloading special addons like Blocksite, just type in the website name and it can not load?

I have a couple of websites that keep popping up from time to time unexpectedly. There must be a way to simply add websites names e.g. www.ihatetheseguys.net to someplace on my Firefox browser, something like a BANNED LIST. And once added that website can never open on my browser again.

This seems like it should be a very simple to thing to do.... it would be like the exceptions list we can access in options where we add websites to a list and they are allowed to open, but this would be the opposite.

I have searched around and it seems there are some add-ons/apps/programs I can download and run on my computer, one called BLOCKSITE. But I dont want to download anything. This seems like it should be a very simple to thing to do on the option page. Simply add a BANNED LIST where we can type in websites and when they try to nope they get noped away to oblivion.

I sometimes have several tabs open, searching and also on social media, it becomes a pain when I am on a particular tab and need a new tab to look something up but then have to scroll to the end of the line of tabs to get to the new open one, then once having found what I needed to know have to scroll back and find the tab that I Was in.

Either a customisation or add on would be useful I feel.

Thanks

I keep getting the following message on Firefox:

"Some users of AVG Internet Security Software are unable to access their saved passwords and logins"

I don't like the look of it and there are two click buttons, neither of which I have touched.

Screen shot attached.

Anyone have any idea what this is?

Hi everyone. Weird issue.

So I reinstalled Firefox, and went about my business.. .and found that the font in gmail/google calendar is... well.. not smooth anymore.

At first I was just seeing things... and now its blatantly obvious the font has been changed somehow.

I've tried refreshing, safe mode, new profile, reinstalling, no add-ons, turning certain add-ons off, etc. Nothing seems to be working.

In comparison, the font in Opera and Chrome are exactly the same, and the font in Firefox is slightly off. and now I'm noticing this in almost all websites - it just seems the font in gmail/google calendar is obviously not smooth. What did i do, and how do i fix this? :(

I had a system crash, probably with Firefox opened.

After restarting PC and starting Firefox, most of the addons I have had lost all of their settings and were reset to default - Tampermonkey lost all the scripts I had installed, uBlock lost all settings and rules, etc. Weirdly some extensions kept portions of their settings, like TreeTabs saved tree structure despite also getting reset to default.

Additionally Firefox also got its own settings reset to default, while the tabs from my session and bookmarks were saved.

Is there any way to recover addon and Firefox settings, is there any backup of them?

I just restored my $HOME/.mozilla folder from a backup (I closed Firefox, moved the old folder away, and the copied the backup folder to the correct location) and I noticed that while my bookmarks, logins, and extensions where correctly restored, all (?) settings from the extensions are lost. I had to reconfigure all custom uBlock origin filter lists, the Cookie Autodelete expression lists, the pwgen settings, and some others.

So to my question: since backing up the profile folder is obviously not enough to restore everything, is there some other folder or file I need to back up to retain the extensions settings on restore? Which one?

Thanks!

My wifi plan is of 50 Mbps. When checked on Firefox via Ookla speedtest it shows only 9 to 10 Mbps. It has been showing this since the past week, before that it was accurate to 50 Mbps. Also when checked on Ookla Speedtest app on Windows, the speed is accurate (50 Mbps). I was trying to attach screenshots but it is stuck on 'Loading'.

Since I updated to Firefox 67.0.1 I was not able to access any content via online banking. After logging in I could only see a blank screen. I contacted the bank and they told me that they no longer offer on-line banking for Firefox users as they had identified a security threat with the saved usernames and passwords. They will only support Google Chrome. I wasn't best pleased as I really don't want to install or use google chrome. Bank in question is Weatherby's bank at https://odbx.weatherbysbank.com/digital/#/login Any suggestions welcome!

Before updating, links in email open a new window instead of new tab, even though FF is running. Options preference is to open links in new tab. Also cannot stop annoying FF popups to update FF. All recommendations are for other website popups, not for FF itself...and I just updated!

Trying to open books in Google Play Books.

I have tried in Chrome, Firefox, IE, Vivaldi and Opera but all with the same result: "If you want to read books in Google Play you must allow cookies from books.googleusercontent.com"

However, what ever I do allow books.googleusercontent.com or cookies from same i does not work

Eg. Opera: Advanced Settings - Privacy & Security - Site Setting - Cookies - Allow - Add - books.googleusercontent.com

As mentioned, this is an issue in 5 browsers and I can't help thinking that it must be Google Play that has an issue.

I have tried Google Help forums but with no answers

I cant be right the every user has to go deep down in settings to be able to read the books (I'm frustrated, admit it)

Anyone knowing anything?

Take care

In the past, when I clicked on a link outside of Firefox, a new tab was opened. Now I get a new window. I've tried this on multiple links and they all do the same thing: open a new window.

Also, when the new window is opened, it's a tab where there are other tabs already in place. These unwanted tabs are of websites I have previously closed.

How do I get Firefox to work the way the previous version worked? Failing that, how do I restore the previous version that worked right?

I have a WordPress Classifieds website, and users are unable to access sub categories for listing or placing adverts? This has happened in the recent past and then it corrected itself, and now it is happening again. We have done all the checks on the site to make sure it isn't the site, and have used other browsers - Chrome and Edge, to do the post adverts and we have not had any problems with those browsers.

We have also uninstalled the Firefox Browser from my pc, shut it down rebooted,and reinstalled the Firefox browser from the website, and the same issue happens. We have tried on another pc, with the same browser already installed, and with three of the users for my site, all using Firefox browser, and each of them have the same issue - they cannot post ads in the category selected as the sub category will not display. Have also notice in the menu bar, that there is something about content blocking?? But I cannot figure out what that means or why it would cause the issue we are having.

Can anyone assist with getting this sorted out please.

We have also noticed another problem with the browser. When you go to "options' there is a message displayed on the top of the page next to a search box, that says - "your organisation has disabled the ability to change some options" Have redownloaded as suggested, but it is still showing.

Have included screenshot of what is happening from the site using Firefox browser and it shows just the main category, so maybe that might assist in explaining the issue we are having with this browser?

Thanks all, hoping to get this issue sorted pretty quickly if possible. Cheers bcdoorz

POINT ONE: IMO, there needs to be a warning saying "if you are thinking of doing a 'refresh' (sounds innocent enough) and are not intimately familiar with Firefox, bear in mind that it may take you hours, days or weeks to get back working online. So don't do it unless you have to."

Yes, I have the 'old Firefox data' file but several methods suggested for getting my bookmarks back have not worked. I also did the procedure suggested to make an HTML file from the backup file, just in case I might need it, but I do not see the HTML file in 'documents'. Is it somewhere else? I could list some of the efforts I have made to get my bookmarks back but it would take several pages of typing. Right now I have about 15 windows open from links on help pages for multiple ways to fix bookmarks problems, but after working on this for several hours I am hopelessly confused.

For one example: I went to Library / hit 'bookmarks' / hit 'show all bookmarks' / hit 'import and backup' / hit 'restore' / hit 'OK' / get message: "unable to process backup file".

Should I throw the computer out, buy a new one and start over? It would certainly be simpler. But I absolutely DO need those bookmarks.

Thanks for any guidance on this.
