Who oversees your Product Development? Daffy Duck? Porky Pig? Mickey Mouse? or a Class of 4th Graders?

This is "HAND'S DOWN" the most "EPIC FAIL" since Microsoft "BOB" and "New Coke". I am Truly STUNNED!!! It's obviously irritating- because I'm FURIOUS- it's baffling (how can anyone be THIS blind) and an unfathomable thing to miss (The Problem is OLDER than...!! Pop-ups have been an annoyance since the 1990's!!! Is ANYONE there THINKING? or am i simply missing where it's buried. (I pray to God I am)!

I dare someone to tell me HOW THE "answer/solution" below IS in ANY WAY an "EASY FIX". A Bungle THIS BIG is gonna get your "Browser" FIRED from my PCs!! I switched FROM IE (and I'm and Microsoft Alumni AND -by "average Standards" a SIGNIFICANT MS Share Holder) because Firefox seemed to handle FaceBook Games better. But, if you all could miss something THIS SIMPLE, what else have you MISSED.

Please- PRETTY PLEASE- make "a fool" of me and force me to apologize. Cause I WILL if I missed the obvious. I have NOT wanted to be WRONG more than I am now in all MY LIFE!!!


there are two simple ways for me to block specific websites. first, editing the host file

   Open my computer, and browse the C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc In the etc folder 
   look for the file HOSTS.
   Open this file hosts with notepad.
   Go to the bottom of the file and create. You can block websites by following the format: 
  127.0.0.1www.sitesyouwanttoblock.com
   Save the file and then the websites you added are blocked now. 

It’s easy to block certain websites by using editing hosts file way. If you want to block many websites even keywords, professional porn filter is recommended.

second, use a website blocker

   Download a professional Aobo website Filter.
   Install the software to the computer.
   Setting up the blacklist and a “white” list provided by Aobo porn filter. Besides the nasty, 
  porn-related words prefilled in the blacklist, you can also customize it to include anything
  that you want to block. The “white” list is reserved for safe words and Web sites.
   Save the settings and run the software. 

The software works in stealth mode that your kids will have no idea that they’re being blocked".


WTH!!!

Error message below.

Connection to registration was unsuccessful. Quicken registration requires cookies and an internet connection. If there is an error registering Quicken, follow the steps below to correct the issue.

Connectivity

You are not connected to your the internet. Try browsing to a web site such as www.google.com using a browser such as Internet Explorer. Quicken may not be part of the allowed software that your Firewall program allows to connect to the internet. Please consult your firewall software instructions on how to add Quicken to the allowed programs. Some virus scanners prevent the connection. We have seen rebooting your computer will allow Quicken to connect. Make sure Internet Explorer browser supports 128 bit SSL encryption. You can confirm this by opening Internet Explorer and clicking Help and about Internet Explorer from the menu bar.


I also tried to go through Explorer, but Explorer says "isearch.avg.com" is not set up to establish a connection on port "World Wide Web service (HTTP)" with this computer so I could not follow the instructions below.

Check Your Internet Explorer Privacy Settings

If you use Internet Explorer 6.0, the following procedure shows you how to change your privacy settings to allow cookies. You may still be able to use these steps as a general guide for other browsers, but you should consult the manufacturer's instructions for your browser if you need additional assistance.

Launch Internet Explorer. Choose Tools menu > Internet Options. Click the Privacy tab. Select the appropriate option: If your Privacy settings are Custom, click the Advanced button, select the Override automatic cookie handling check box , select Accept for First-party Cookies, and click OK. If your Privacy settings are not Custom, adjust your settings to Medium High or lower on the slider. Click OK. Register Quicken. Check for Viruses or Spyware on Your Computer

Quicken requires a secure Internet connection. Many viruses, spyware and adware will interfere with Quicken's ability to establish a secure connection. Make sure your virus protection is up to date and run a full system scan.

There are many third party systems that will scan and remove spyware and adware from your computer. Intuit recommends periodically checking your system for spyware or adware and removing programs you do not want on your computer.

OS Windows Vista; Firefox 27.0 Suddenly, new tab has a load of big size icons and looks like a copy of MS Windows8. Definately not a look I could ever want. Loads of icons - most I have never used nor visited or visit on a rare basis. so I have no idea where they were selected from. I did not select this options. I have bookmarks and use them. I want the same blank tab to appear. No idea why a new tab should have anything other than blank. Located info to switch this off. There is no option to switch it off - only add more tabs or mess about with layout and theme. so these instructions are not correct or I have located bug of extreme annoyance.

So I attempted to change the about:config as per instructions. browser.newtab.url;about:blank however, this does not fix. I rechecked and it is set as about:blank. So I tried reopening Firefox, but when I select new tab, I still get all the advertising icons.

So what else do I need to fix in about:config to remove absolutely everything to do creating new tabs inbany other way than blank and ready for use.

The site from which I'd like to watch movies is saying that it requires the Widevine Media Optimizer browser plugin. I hit the plugin button, and a window from Google Widevine pops up. It says to install the plugin, and specifically states that Firefox is a supported browser.

I hit to install, then a box comes up that says "Firefox prevented this site (tools.google.com) from asking you to install software on your computer." When I hit "Allow", there's a box showing the plugin installing but then another box pops up and says "This add-on could not be downloaded because of a connection failure on tools.google.com."

How do I get around this issue so that I can download the Optimizer? Help!!

Any ideas or suggestion?

I needed to register to post a question etc on the Mozilla Community forums. The fact that I have managed to post this question obviously means I have succeeded. Whilst trying to find how to register, it was not easy, I found similar questions from other users who presumably were having the same problem as I was. There appears to be no register button on the sign in page which there usually is when registering on most sites. This led to me going around in circles until I eventually followed the correct procedure. Could it be made a bit simpler. I have only recently downloaded Firefox so I am I am still finding my way around.

When I click on 'Check to see if your plugins are up to date' in about:addons, https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ opens in a new tab as expected.

Although the Plugin Check page loads, no checking happens. There's not even a small spinning circle that would at least indicate some activity.

I'm running: FF 35.0.1 Java SE 8 U31 11.31.2.13 (manually updated today and set to 'Always Activate') Shockwave Flash 16.0.0.305 (also set to 'Always Activate')

Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated.

I've been having major problems with cursor control by mouse wheel and keyboard on the Ubuntu install. I've improved it by alterations in about:config, but it's still not right.

I have this install on Windoze Vista that works perfectly, through no fault of my own, just as installed.

Can I simply copy the file from the Windows Vista install to the Ubuntu install to fix it?

If so, what is the file name (about:config ?), and where is it located?

Thanks!

None of the solutions ever seem to work and you get bounced back to going round and round round and round round and round round and round round and round round and round round and round round and round round and round round and round.

On the verge of deleting Firefox.

Not asking for help - just wanted at least ONE LIVE BODY at Mozilla to see this, but I don't think that will happen.

This is really annoying, to have Moz tell me what is best for me, like it or not. QUESTION: How can I unclip from the Mozilla leash and update Adobe and STOP it from being blocked at random by Firefox?

WHY?: Today, as usual, Adobe Acrobat is blocked again. I let myself be led by the Moz leash and clicked "Update" beside Adobe Acrobat. I'm led to a Moz page that tells me I need to update Firefox version 52.2.1 Firefox Help > About shows version 52.2.1 "Firefox is up to date". IS UP TO DATE! get it yet? It can't be updated because it already is updated. Bad links in browser I gather? I want Adobe Acrobat to run, UNIMPEDED from annoying and monotonous interference from Mozilla telling me what is and isn't good for me. That's what we have governments, spouses, and Google for!

p.s. Some formatting tools here would being this area in to the 21st century and make it much easier for responders to read.

This sounds Dostoevskian, but read on. This is informational for those who are wary and abused Firefox users.

It's Free - Firefox. That means you are on your own to get it going and keep it going. Mozilla WILL NOT HELP YOU or provide any competent tech support. You'll be referred to the forums where, many times, you will be run in circles and nonplussed.

This version I have, will not upgrade. 1. Cannot install addon - upgrade to current version 2. Go to upgrade download page. 3. Already at current version. 4. Try to download most recent version. 5. Already at current version.

All I wanted to do was keep Blur current. No dice. Went like this: 1. Cannot install addon - upgrade to current version 2. Go to upgrade download page. 3. Already at current version. 4. Try to download most recent version. 5. Already at current version.

Fortunately, the excellent tech support techs at Abine/Blur took pity and assisted me. So much so, I felt guilty for not contributing and contributed - to Abine, not Mozilla. So I have an older version of Firefox running just fine. With addons.

Upgrade nags are too intrusive and are accompanied by lies as to why you must upgrade. What they are really hoping for, is to scare you into upgrading to a PAID version of Firefox. You needn't upgrade at all, as a matter of fact, if you are willing to do a little digging and nagging yourself.

Forget tech support. There is none. Nada. Doesn't exist. You'll be on your own in the forums looking for answers. Mozilla claims to have tech support ? It's a lie - and a free-for-all.

Addons have no support. The developers all hide because there are issues with all the addons and the developers are sick and tired of hearing from us Little People. Period. End of Story. DO NOT send addon developers money ! It begets you NOTHING.

The forums, for Mozilla, are 'Free'. Staffed by volunteers who save Mozilla millions of dollars a year in staffing costs. How anyone can get suckered in such a situation is beyond me. What you get in those forums may or may not be true, may or may not work. Take your chances. It seems to be an ego-trip for the "support ENGINEERS", so take your chances. Most times you lose...

Mozilla's relationship(s) with Privacy Busters and Data Miners is murky at best. It will only get more incestuous than it already is. Most other sites have totally prostituted your personal information for pennies. That's all your private life is worth to the data miners - pennies. They buy and sell profiles like yours by the millions. For a few cents each. Many such places will include your credit card number, expiration date and security code - for a few more pennies...

DO NOT give your primary Email address to Mozilla, or any other Free software provider. Make up an Email address for 'throwaway' uses. I have Email accounts associated with Email addresses I provide to places like Mozilla. SPAM Tsunami. Flood. Totally overwhelmed. Today, 963 Spams in 24 hours - to my Spam Trap Email account. That address was only ever given to sites that merely wanted to have it for "informational purposes" and "notifications". Problem is, I give one Email address per site that just HAS to have one or you can't surf. No Emails from that site ! BUT a flood of Spam from 3rd parties ! AND I know EXACTLY where they got my Email address. Handy, huh ?

Terms of service disclosures protect you from UTTERLY NOTHING !!! Again, Terms of service disclosures protect you from UTTERLY NOTHING !!! Used to be a merchant would protect your privacy because you could go elsewhere. Nowadays they're just selling everything you disclose. How do you think a concise history of your auto's maintenance ever made it to Carfax, even though you used 16 different shops ? At shops like that, I simply write in large letters across the service contract, "No disclosure of personal info. Rights waived by service provider." That means I haul their asses into court for a civil action -- and win -- if they sell my info. If the shop accepts the work after you wrote that across the service contract, it is a legally binding contract. NOT ONE shop ever refused to fix my car ! How do I know who it was who snitched out my personal info ? My personal information had unique identifiers for whom I disclosed it to. The unique identifiers are easy to make up... Jr., Sr, III, etc...

No response solicited...

I am trying to log into the MozillaZine forums using my previously register user name and password. It is refused saying that my user name is not valid and to contact an administrator. No indication on how to do that.

If I try to register again, I'm told that my email address is already in use and the registration returns me to the login page.

If you try to use the lost password option to get something, it asks for the user name again and errors out.

How or who can get this fixed?

Stalled Scrolling and Other Problems- NEED HELP ASAP! HAS NOT BEEN ANSWERED/SOLVED, STILL NEED HELP.

Hello, Ever since I downloaded Firefox 25, I have had an issue with scrolling. If there was some way to record this, I would, but at this time I cannot, so a description will have to do. If someone knows a way to record what is happening, I will gladly do it to make what I am saying easier to visualize.

On some sites I visit, scrolling will be what can only be described as "choppy"- I will attempt to scroll down, but there will be a small delay before the page responds and scrolls down. Thus, the scrolling does not go smoothly. This mostly happens on sites (tumblr pages especially) with non-scrolling backgrounds (ie backgrounds that do not scroll with the page) on them.

First off, I do not think this is a problem with any extensions, my computer, or the sites themselves. When I open the same pages in Chrome, the issue does not occur and the issue does not occur in all pages.

I have tried clearing the cookies and cache, resetting my browser, disabling hardware acceleration, checking the plugins (problem still happened even when all plugins were disabled), updating my graphics card, and disabling website colors. The first few produced no lasting result/fix, and while disabling website colors did fix the issue, it made the rest of the site/other sites (ones that were working fine) difficult/impossible to use.

One interesting fact of note is this: If I downgrade to Firefox 24, the issue not only disappears, but stays away, and does not occur.

Another fact of note: I have written a previous thread on this issue, but ended up not getting an answer to a second question I had. In the first thread, I was given this possible solution, referring to a bookmarklet I could use/try: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/976244#answer-496960

So my questions here are these: 1) What is going on in Firefox 25 that makes scrolling choppy in that version, but not in version 24 or any other browser except version 25? 2) How exactly do I use that bookmarklet I linked to? Where do I need to place it? How do I get to where I need to place it? How would it work? Is there a way to/Can someone make it into a Greasemonkey (I have Greasemonkey) userscript, if it does work?

Also, is there a way to "bump" my thread without actually commenting on it?
