I clicked on a popup link from Firefox to speed up my browser. Came back to my computer and everything's gone, all my fast links that I had at the top of my screen, like Facebook, Gmail, everything I've saved for quick links over the past 2 years. I want my computer back, just the way I had it. This is a nightmare. I'd much rather my browser run slow (it really wasn't running slow). I tried a system restore, but it didn't restore things the way I had them. Please, what do I do to reverse this nightmare, and please don't ever offer to speed up my browser again.

Windows 10 - Après une réinstallation de windows 10, Firefox ne fonctionne pas, Edge, Comodo dragon, vivaldi etc... fonctionnent. Firefox s'ouvre mais se limite à cela. Il importe mes marque pages et j'ai accès au menu mais rien ne fonctionne. J'ai essayé aussi del'ouvrir avec les droits d'administrateur mais rien... Je vous remercie de m'aider car j'utilise Firefox depuis des années.

I didn't mind this bug in about a week ago, but it is sufficiently annoying enough. The firefox is deleting last letter consists of my locale, hangul, when I search it through address bar.

It occurs when searching more than 2 words. Precisely, conditions are two. 1. one or more space bar between two words. 2. the last word has more than one letter.

ex) ㄱ ㄴㄷ(enter) --(when searching through address bar)--> ㄱ ㄴ

It is resolved by adding space bar or move the cursor to the right of the letter. So you can't reproduce it with just copying that words. You need to search with korean locale keyboard to reproduce that bug. Anyway, it's still annoying doing things what I should not do with the previous version.

Pocket is a fantastic idea - another essential element to support democracy.

However, some of the news articles are from websites like the NY Times and Washington Post which require accessors to SUBSCRIBE before being allowed to view the reporting content.

Even when you use the 2-second delay to hit ctrl-a and ctrl-c (select-all and copy) shortcuts, it is a nuisance and often requires repeat attempts.

SO, can the "wonderful brainiacs" of Moz/Firefox find alternative sources of the same content to avoid those sites requiring forced subscriptions?

I'm trying to download Firefox on a Mac, Version 10.15.7. After I drag the Firefox icon to the App folder in the popup window, another window appears, "Preparing to copy to Applications." The process never gets beyond this point, however long I wait. A faded Firefox listing shows in my Applications folder, with a circle with line thru it.

Hello,

I have been writing a .bat file, as well as experimenting with ShellBags in order to default Windows Explorer navigation pane settings and folder views / types to default.

Currently, I have the .bat file configured to remove the NavPane (HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\NavPane) and Sizer (HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\GlobalSettings\Sizer) registry folders / items (As these are automatically regenerated with default values by Windows), as well as myriad ShellBag items and Desktop.ini files. It then restarts Windows Explorer.

This .bat script, however, does not seem to default any customization made within Firefox's Save As window(s).

For example, if I right-click an image, then select Save Image As, and then proceed to drag the explorer panes to be excessively wide, then exit Firefox, upon running the .bat file, the excessively wide navigation / explorer panes remain excessively wide. They do not default.

Does Firefox store this pane customization information somewhere else? Can this be defaulted?

Thank you!

Whenever I click on Print Edit WE button the edit page opens but all the buttons are inactive and the PE button in the toolbar shows SUS for suspend. Nothing I do fixes it. I've removed and reinstalled the lastest version of PE from the add-on web page 3 or 4 times. A right click on the PE button drops down a menu but the one I need, Edit, puts PE into suspend mode. What could be causing this? I'm running FF 83.0, 64 bit, Windows 10 Pro. Print Edit has always worked before. Does the latest version have a bug? Or does FF maybe have a bug?

I've been trying to figure out how to fix this and havent found anything in my google seartch settings, or firefox options or my PC's display settings, it might be right in front of me but I just cant figure it out.

On some pages, for example, when I do a google search on firefox, there is a ton of blank white space not used. Like it has a narrow page margin or something? I'm attaching a screenshot of what I mean. You can see half the screen is just white, how can I fix it so the display isnt so narrow? Not all pages have the blank space problem, for example outlook.com has no such issue.

Thank you in advance for helping me

Hello, thank you for taking the time to check this out.

I was closing the volume mixer after I no longer needed it and realized that Firefox was showing levels go up whenever I spoke into my microphone. I had been using it before to chat, but not on Firefox at all during the session at the time. No music or videos were playing in any of my tabs. After a while, it no longer picked it up, but I know for certain that there was no output of sound coming from my computer. I haven't been able to replicate it yet, but it does worry me.

When a URL no longer exits, I get a 'redirect' and even it it does, sometimes it "steps on' the correct URL and several attempts are needed to get the correct URL to stick. The "net" gives instructions of: Step 1: Click the "Tools" menu tab in your Firefox browser and select "Options." Step 2: Select "Advanced" from the list of options at the top of the window.

But in Firefox release 83.xxx, "ADVANCED" option does not exist or I can not SEE it. Any idea on how to 'BLOCK REDIRECTS' and just get an error instead?

OR SIMPLE BLOCK URLS one just does not like without using the PARENTAL CONTROLS.

Hi everyone,

I've recently migrated to a new laptop and noticed, after setting up Firefox, that Twitter embeds weren't working on some websites. After some investigation, it seems related to my Enhanced Tracking Settings.

For example, I can get the embeds to appear if I change my Enhanced Tracking Settings to Standard, or if I set them to Custom and disable either of the following:

  • Tracking cookie protection
  • Tracking content protection

Interestingly, leaving the Enhanced Tracking settings as Strict (or Custom equivalent), and disabling Enhanced Tracking Protection for the particular site, doesn't work ...

Is this a bug? Or have I misunderstood how this (exception) mechanism works?

Here's the page I was looking at: https://www.vice.com/en/article/4ad3qp/donald-trump-tiny-desk-electoral-college

Could someone else try experimenting with their settings and see what renders on that article?

Best regards, Ed

Ok, been having these issue like for a really long time, gaving up and switched to chrome for that time being and now even chrome has some bad issue so I am attempting to switch back. I know a lot of us are having the same problem with Kaspersky internet security, they said the next patch would fix it and I am sure the patch arrived. But firefox still has the above issue, and let me clarify the issues; youtube becoming weird, limited suggestion, and sometime shows I am not signed in which I am, and if you keep refreshing it, it would go back and forth in between your account and not signed in.... moreover, I can't type any comment, always with a returned error.... and finally, whenever I am logging in into my hotmail, my machine keeps prompting for security certificate clarification or something.... please help, its been a long while, trying to reinstall both the firefox and chrome, they both still have their respective issues..... thank you

Recently, when I start my Windows 10Pro desktop and I bring up Firefox or click on a URL in an Outlook mail (which starts Firefox), I notice I am logged out of Firefox and have to re-login into my account. I am currently using Firefox version 83.0. This behavior may have started a month or so ago(it is now Nov,29, 2020) before I really started to pay attention to this issue.

Of course during the last several months there have been Windows updates and Firefox updates, so it is difficult to pin this down to a specific set of circumstances.

Once I login into my account, I can close Firefox and re-open or re-start Firefox and I am logged in automatically, as I have always been before. Now when I power off the desktop and re-start the next day I am logged out of my Firefox account.

The only add-ons I have are Ghostery and Google translate.

Any idea what is going on here or what to check for? Thanks.
