When I download a document from an email or a website, I receive a message that Firefox has successfully "sanitized" the document. Then I discover that the hyperlinks, such as an RSVP, no longer work. How can I stop Firefox from destroying hyperlinks?

I would like to stream games using FF 64 bit v. 78.0.2, but cannot because, according to NBCSports.com, "Recent versions of Firefox do not support Adobe Flash with authenticated video streams. Please use an alternative browser."

Can this error message be correct? Why would FF be the only browser that doesn't support flash? Any work around would be helpful and appreciated. Please refrain from lectures on the demise of flash or any other tangentially related topic. I'm interested in streaming a game while I work.

Thank you in advance,

We use a UPS thermal label printer. If Firefox printints to that printer it works, but if any other printer is later selected, Firefox sends the job to the new printer but the paper format stays as the same as the label printer.

The proper paper sizes are set in the printer properties but Firefox seems to ignore them. No other browser software has this issue. Yes, I've reset the printer settings a number of times, the printers all work until another label is printed, then Firefox is again stuck on that label format.

This is has been an issue with previous releases of Firefox, and it continues even with the latest release. Regrettably, if I need to print labels, Firefox is not used because of the need to reset all the printer settings afterwards. I like Firefox, but with this annoying problem, it will not be used often.

Any suggestions other then to continue to reset the printer's settings?

Thanks.

Help! Please :)

I just updated Firefox and privacy settings have changed. For the worse, seemingly.

Under Options for Privacy and Security there is a setting for "Send web sites a 'Do Not Track' signal". And, I am given only two choices: 1) Always 2) Only when Firefox is set to block known trackers.

I want a third option. "NEVER." These requests are optional; they are widely ignored; and they are -- in fact -- just another data point that is collected. "Never" has always been an option in Firefox. Why is it missing now?

Is there a setting in about:config I can change to ensure that "Do Not Track" is never sent?

Thanks! Kirk

Out of all the hundreds of websites I regularly visit each week, two websites flag the exact same security warning on Zone Alarm every single time I visit them, and I have never gotten this warning anywhere else at any other website. I am already aware these two websites are not to be trusted so I suspect they have engineered something to compromise the Firefox web browser. Zone Alarm pops up a warning that "Firefox is attempting to monitor user activities on this computer. If allowed it may try to track or log keystrokes (user input), mouse movements/clicks, websites visited, and other user behaviors." A screen-cap of the Zone Alarm warning is attached. I deny this action in Zone Alarm every time it happens. Let me again emphasis this happens nowhere else, only at these two sketchy websites I occasionally visit and it happens every single time I go there and my concern is that they have embedded something in their webpages compromising the Firefox web browser.

Apparently randomly, about every 2-7 days, all my extensions become disabled with no option to enable them again. I delete the compatibility.ini and all extensions.* files and the extensions are then enabled again.

I have tried creating new profiles, but it keeps happening. I have scanned for viruses. I have the latest versions of the extensions.

I sometimes *need* to run Firefox ESR v52.8.1 (64-bit) in parallel. I wonder if that could be the cause..?

Mozilla Firefox is my default web browser since it was established. I never had any problems with it until now. It is this baffling sound issue. Firefox will not play any sound. At first I noticed that some adds on Youtube videos were without sound but I took no action. Yesterday I noticed that no sound will play on Firefox browser. I have no issues with my sound card or audio issues of any kind. Google Chrome plays sounds normally, as well as the Edge, this issue is only when I use Mozilla Firefox. I spent most of the time yesterday and today on trying to solve this issue but with no success. I tried every solution i could find on the internet but no joy. Firefox just don't play any sounds. As Firefox is my preferred, default web browser this thing is especially frustrating. Does anybody have a solution for this problem? Please help! I really don't want to go and use other web browsers, I love Firefox and I donate to it regularly.

    Hi firefox community,

    I've been using firefox forever and so all my logins and passwords have been saved in the browser. For the past two days I noticed that firefox couldn't 'connect to my account', which has never happened before - I was logged in ever since my firefox account was created. My current logins have been active, but when I tried to log into a website with a previously saved login and password - there was nothing. I then logged back into my firefox account, but all my logins and passwords are still gone. I tried manual sync, still nothing.

    I am not sure if it happened after a specific update - I didn't notice when exactly I was 'logged out'.
