Hi, My Firefox plug-in check is telling me that there is an update for Java, but when I visit the link it's still taking me to the old update (the Java 7 update 9). Also, according to the Java test page, Java 7u9 is still showing that it's the latest...it says I have the recommended version.

Is there an newer update somewhere?

Thanks.

Yesterday all of a sudden my webpages and UI appeared to be magnified. While I can zoom out on websites, I cannot find any option to adjust the size of the UI.

I noticed that Firefox 22 (which I am running) has a new feature: "Windows: Firefox now follows display scaling options to render text larger on high-res displays". Is it possible to adjust how Firefox responds to the display scaling options perhaps?

After the last Firefox update, when I clicked on bkspace, it would take me back to the previous webpage. Happened on both Firefox and Chrome (laptop with Win10, all current/updated, as well as flash). Following (from 2012) Mozilla community support instructions, went into about:config and dbl clicked on browser.backspace_action and changed value from 0 to 2. This stopped the problem everywhere but Firefox on Facebook (I make sure cursor is flashing in a text box, trying to post, comment on another post or typing in messenger). The backspace key does nothing, just sits there. I type a lot...and trying to correct typos is a nightmare! I don't know if this is Firefox related, or Facebook. Have reported it to Facebook every day, but thats like beating my head against a wall, ugh! Help!?!

On 5/3/19 Firefox suddenly alerted me that it disabled all of my Add-ons stating that "These extensions do not meet current Firefox standards so they have been deactivated."

Immediately below this message, Firefox gives me the option to "Find a Replacement" Add-on.

After going through this process and locating the replacement Add-on, all attempts to download this (or any other Add-on) produce an error message stating "Download failed. Please check your connection."

However, my internet connection is working just fine.

I am running the latest version of Firefox (66.0.3 (64-bit)). And I have tried downloading the Add-on with my anti-virus temporarily disabled (with no success).

Screen captures are attached.

Does anyone know what is causing this issue and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Back to the same old problem I'm afraid. The last update of Firefox actually asked me if I wanted to enable a Trusteer Rapport add on - which I did. Naively I thought that all my previous problems would be over. Now I've got a message telling me that the add on has been disabled because it can't be verified for use with Firefox - but I've been using it for months and Firefox asked me if I wanted to enable it!!!!! Nearly every bank and building society in the UK recommends installing and using Trusteer Rapport in order to improve the safety of one's online banking. As a result I would very much like to get Rapport working again.

My only option at the moment is to stop using Firefox.

You really need to employ some graphic artists. This is the worst change I have seen in Firefox. The tabs should be BELOW the bookmark toolbar, right above the pages. That's where your eye most easily rests when you're looking for a tab. I looked at "solutions" but I'm not a freaking software engineer!! I just need to get the tabs back down where they were and can't find a solution. If I can't find one I guess I'll have to go back to Safari, which I don't like as well as I have liked Firefox all these years, but this change is just too much.

Also, it's not bad enough to put the tabs at the top (where your eye does not easily travel to!), but now the tabs are white type on a black background. Perhaps fine for 25-year-old eyes, but not for older eyes or visually challenged people in general. And if you have multiple tabs open, which many multitaskers do, you can only see a few letters. I could go on and on about how horrible this new change is, but please take some advice from a retired graphic designer. Black backgrounds with faint light type are not the way to go.

I got home, turned on the PC, loaded up Firefox, and ALL my addons are disabled and tossed into their 'legacy' pool of crap. No happy colorful theme, NO adblocker, no Ghostery... it even disabled my Bitdefender add-ons. Something is NOT right here. Anyone know what's going on? Firefox has NOT updated in at least a week or two, so I doubt it was an update breaking anything.

After recovering my email and calendar from a MozBackup file (I know, but it was all I had when the other computer s*** the bed) I have several funky things happening but missing the ability to allow (or not) remote content is the most annoying. None of the fixes I have found have worked. Is there a way to set all Configurations to default? Does anyone have a better fix?

I hope u can help me solve this problem.

Coupons.com plugin disappeared after upgrade to FF v21, and can't be reinstalled

The Issue.... Coupons.com plugin disapeared after upgrading FF to v21 (from FF Help Menu>About) I then was prompted to install the plugin when i went to print a coupon from coupons.com... the installation shows it succeeds with no issues, however the plugin is still not showing in the plugin list, and of course coupons don't print (You are prompted by coupons.com to download the plugin...over and over again)

How it happened..... I almost never reboot the PC. Before today everything was working fine. I didn't reboot PC, but decided to upgrade FF to latest version (previous was 20.something)... because i was getting a really long (and context insensitive menu when right clicking anything).

The upgrade appeared to run flawlessly, but then the issue with coupons.com became apparent, and upon a quick look in about:plugins, i noticed the coupon.com (coupon printer) plugin is no longer there....

I closed all browsers, uninstalled the Coupons.com plugin (from Add/Remove programs), and verified that Internet Explorer can't print coupons anymore from coupons.com. Then i reinstalled the plugin (from coupons.com) and Internet Explorer was once again able to print coupons. This means the plugin is being installed on the PC, and while Internet Explorer works, Firefox doesn't (since this version 21)

I submitted a ticket to Roboform and got this response....

[quote]In our new version 8.3.7.7 we have switched to new Firefox extension based on WebExtensions API. New Firefox extension is Chrome style, so it does NOT have RF toolbar: https://www.roboform.com/news-windows/quote

My main question is, is this a Firefox problem with moving to WebExtensions API or is it RoboForm not developing a separate toolbar and just going with the Chrome addon.

To either I would say....If I wanted Chrome and its features/worthlessness, I would use Chrome. I use(d) Firefox do the the way I can dock bookmarks on the left to have them open all the time and how the toolbar for RoboForm made everything so simple.

Please let me know whos fault/problem this is so I can either switch browsers or switch password managers (still have close to a year subscription left but this non-toolbar is a deal breaker so I would gladly leave early).

Hello

All my folders with their names and email lists have suddenly reverted to really small font (I can still control font size in emails)

I think I managed this aspect with the theme font and size changer add-on in the past which is still installed but no longer visible in the tool bar.

As others on their website state, this add-on suddenly stopped working for them and became invisible. I've tried ta reinstall but that hasn't worked

The problem now is that the font is so bloody small that I can barely read it.

I just wish Mozilla would work a bit better with add-ons. We really need some of them but they seem to become redundant with every new update. It's really frustrating at the best of times but this is a disaster for me! I need to see emails for my work.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

After following all the suggestions found by searching video autoplay, Firefox currently still autoplays videos with the sound muted. This is in websites other than those like YouTube, such as news websites and the like. What I REALLY want is to COMPLETELY PREVENT automatic playback of any of these videos, and if necessary, whitelist domains like YouTube to allow autoplay. Is this even feasible?
