Pasting an IP into the address bar (from Excel) and pressing ENTER/Return from either the keypad or (sometimes) keys area changes the address bar to [Google search] (empty) - my IP that I've pasted is gone and the website from the IP is not open.

This is happening since the last update. I have not 88.0 version.

I don't have google as search engine! I have Foxy Gestures and uBlock Origin add-ons.

I have looked in there and found the required entry which is under All Address Book > Mail selected it and then right clicked and chosen delete from the list A poop-up appears Delete Contact are you sure you want to delete this contact . "Fred Bloggs" clicked OK and absolutely nothing happens!

If I attempt to edit an entry, the edit box appears, however I can not alter anything. Something appears to be write locking the address book. Entries in other address books I can alter, such as my gmail.com address book, and collected addresses. Could someone point me in the correct direction to fix this please, -- Ta Ian Mac

OK, sorry if I dont know all the technical jargon but here are a couple issues I have been having. Currently using FF88.0 on Windows 10 Home edition.

A few updates ago I noticed when I go to print a page from the internet (specifically eBay Order Details) it no longer prints the default auction picture as it appears on the screen but enlarges it up to the original download size. This make the shrink to fit option no longer work properly. So in order to get all of the information I need on one page of print I have to constantly change the size from 40-60% to make it work. Frustrating and time wasting.

Second issue: This one just started with the last update. I use a Rollo label printer and I had everything set up where it worked just fine. After the last update it prints half labels and I cant get it to adjust back properly. Huge issue and time waster.

On average I feel like this slows me down 15-30 minutes a day total.

G'day from Down Under

i am using first install of new TB 78, on W10 laptop.. after click on desktop TB icon I see blue windows, and it goes to blank silver screen and it stalls. during trying to find a way around the stall I have stumbled across an unusual procedure , which works ,every time. I click lightly on the laptop keyboard blue light power icon , it blinks slowly , I then press spacebar , and TB then proceeds to the normal scenery picture screen on which I click and can then login my user name and TB activates and runs smoothly ... I can repeat this procedure every time ... why do I have to do this ? why does the unusual keyboard combination work ? last minute thought ... could it somehow be related to I do not have automatic updates allowed ? is there some TB coding expert who could answer this ? who ? how contact ? thanks to all who may read this and be able to help ..

I use Mozilla VPN to establish a VPN connection via a VPN server in UK (London or Manchester). In Firefox I enter the address https://www.bbc.co.uk to access the BBC homepage in UK. This address changes immediately to https://www.bbc.com. This is the international BBC homepage with different content. Conclusion: https://www.bbc.co.uk does not recognize the VPN server in London or Manchester as UK based.

Similarly I cannot access the video material on the educational pages https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize. When I try I get the message: "This content is not available in your location."

Any suggestions?

Firefox Daylight 88.1.2 (Build #2015806939)

After installing Firefox for Android on my OnePlus 6T and configuring FF would be closed in this manner. 1 More > Quit (which doesn't quit but does close all tabs) 2. Click the Android "Menu" icon (square) and then either

   a. Swipe the Firefox app up to close only Firefox
   b. Click Clear All to close all apps.

This worked fine until last week. Now, it doesn't close. (Note: Apparently FF was updated last week on 4/26/2021 so it may be an issue with the current build. Perhaps only effecting the OnePlus 6T.

Eventually FF will close but, the next time it is opened, it starts over.


What has been tried: Powering off and restarting the phone Restarting the phone Force Stopping Firefox Clearing the Firefox cache Delete Browsing Data (currently set to be deleted on quit but that does not work) A MalwareBytes scan found nothing. Nor has any malware ever been detected on any phone of mine. Searched release notes for known bugs (found zero entries) No option for FF Android on Bugzilla (FF iOS was checked but last entry was over three months ago)

Thanks in advance

I have a problem with enabling two-step authentication for my Mozilla account. There have been several questions regarding issues with two-step authentication, but none of them applies to my case, so I started another one.

When I try to enable 2SA, there are seemingly no problems. When I scan the QR code and enter the 6-digit security code, I don't get the "invalid two-step authentication code" message. I do get the 8 10-digit recovery codes. After I enter one of them I get a prompt saying "Two-step authentication enabled" (see attachment), but nothing else happens. It seems like the process is stuck here and isn't completed.

I have tried setting 2SA from my profile settings (https://accounts.firefox.com/settings) too, but when I logout and login again, it says Not Set.

I wouldn't normally use 2SA at all if it hasn't been made mandatory for logging into Add-ons (addons.mozilla.org). Now, I'm locked out of my Add-ons account and can't access my extensions!

Hi,

i want to use the VPN on the laptop from my company which doensn`t allow the installation of new software. So i`m using FirefoxPortable for my private stuff. Is it possible to somehow just send the traffic from Firefox through the VPN, allowing all other stuff to go directly to the company network? I just want to hide my private stuff?

Hi, we would like to use Mozilla VPN in our family (2 Parents, 3 Kids). In the moment we run 3 iPhones, 1 iPad, 2 Mac mini, 1 MacBook and 2 Windows 10-PCs and 1 Windows 10-Laptop. Every Person has its own Account on the Macs, MacBook, Windows-PCs and Windows-Laptop. What would be a reasonably VPN-Setting for us, as it says "Mozilla VPN" can be used on 5 devices. Could we share one Mozilla VPN let's say for the 3 iPhones, the iPad and the MacBook as those 5 devices are the ones, that most likely log in to a public WLAN? Is it ok, if different persons use the same Mozilla VPN? If it's not ok for different persons to use the same Mozilla VPN, is there a special price for families like us, maybe pay for the parents, get the children free? Thank you Frank

This question is a followup to Thunderbird 78.2.2 Calendar "TODAY" highlight

That question provides details on how to edit userChrome.css to (differently) highlight "today" and/or the selected day.

Unfortunately, while it works in the month and multiweek Lightning views, it does not work in the week view.

Does someone know which selector must be used to target that view to similarly change the highlight color?

I have tried things like:

    .calendar-week-day-box-current-week[selected="true"] {
       background-color: Gold !important;
    }

But this (and other similar selectors) does not work.

For some reason I can not get the developer tools (inspector) to show me the selector name, so I am flying blind!

Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed light on this!

After migrating from Firefox 87 to 88.0.1 under linux-64 (debian 10), the browser became very slow. Typing has a delay of 2-3 seconds between end of type and appearence on screen. Same for loading pages. Migrating back to firefox 87 is a nuisance since part of the setup is lost and mozilla keeps insisting daily to switch to firefox 88. The articles in "Fix slowness" do not seem to help.

Both my PCs were downloading from you tube perfectly, until two days ago, when the download button on both PCs disappeared, almost at the same time. As the people at Video Droid do not have an answer, I must assume the problem lies with Firefox. I hope we are not returning to the days when every update from Mozilla fucked up. Kindly explain how I can fix this mess, or how I can backdate to an earlier Firefox that worked properly. To be quite honest with you, I’m not the slightest bit interested in your new smart arse add ons, and tricks, all I want is a browser that works for me, not one that loses me days working time because your programmers can’t get their shit together.
