Hi there,

I'm building my first website. When I log in (jam-works.org/wp-admin) the very right end of the top bar in the 'dashboard' menu shows a blank, empty box where my avatar or pic or Gravatar or whatever should be ("1of2" below). The profile section from which to change this displays that same blank square with a link: "You can change your profile picture on Gravatar".

Which I've done. When I open jam-works.org/wp-admin with another browser, it displays the picture ("2of2" below), but I really don't want to use other browsers. I tried Firefox 'Options', 'Privacy & Security' and 'clear data', rebooted but no luck.

Can someone please help? I'm older than technology, so please type slowly so I can understand. Seriously. I just found out that an "Ethernet" isn't a thing to catch the Ether Bunny with, sooooo, yeah - please kinda spell it out for me if you can.

Thanks!

I stopped using Chrome a while ago and I use, ahem, Bing for searches. Sometimes, when I click on a link I get a "404. That’s an error. The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know." while using Firefox. I copy the link and paste it into the browser Edge and the site comes up no problem. Does firefox used a cached version of Google while Edge does not? Is there a way to resolve this?

I decided to stop using Google some time ago so made the full time change to Firefox and a different search engine. A tad bothersome that Google is still there. Not really interested in going to MS Edge...

When viewing for example the Guardian international site , there is always a kind of a slideshow in the most important topic. Today for example Biden und a bunch of pictures Trump leaving. Sometimes i like to have a closer look on one of pictures. There is no copy/save image than. I like to have a kind of pause button to interrupt the playing. Im running linux/ubuntu, but on win10 the same. So I use the Print button to make a hardcopy, but this is not very "elegant". Any suggestions ? It's not a kind of blocking a popup.

How can I craft a link to work in other browsers when clicked in Firefox?

We have Firefox ESR deployed in our Enterprise. Our core financial banking system runs on Firefox. Our Intranet page has special javascript code to take advantage of IE's ActiveX so if one were to launch IE, the default page (our intranet) has an icon to our core banking system and if clicked the script uses ActiveX and runs this code: ar oShell = new ActiveXObject("Shell.Application"); var commandtoRun = "C:\\Program Files\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe" ; oShell.ShellExecute(commandtoRun,"https:/path-to-core-system-web-ui","","open","1"); }

So when they click on the icon which is basically an img with the style of cursor: pointer; it does an onclick launch to that code which launches firefox to the web command. If you open our Intranet page in Firefox or Chrome then ActiveX does not run so it just launches in a new tab the link to our core system.

This week (1/19) we are going live with a new loan origination system. The LoS system vendor claims they want us to use Chrome for their system. Well a few months ago we changed the default browser to Firefox with GPO's and now the issue is our Intranet page opens in Firefox (which works great) as any other, but how can we craft our link to open the Loan Origination System in Chrome? I call B.S. that is only works in Chrome. It seems to work in Firefox to me, but that's all they want to support so if we need help they won't help us unless we are using it in Chrome. I know I'm not happy about it either. I'm just happy to be rid of IE finally. I like Firefox (and Chrome) but if I can do any tricks to craft a link, maybe a javascript function to launch something like commandtoRun = "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe", along with the argument with the LoS web URL, that would be great.

Thanks!

Hi, we are web-designer.

We have replaced the first 2 PDF in the page https://www.gazebo.it/documenti-certificazioni/:

https://www.gazebo.it/documenti-certificazioni/iso-9001-2015-web.pdf https://www.gazebo.it/documenti-certificazioni/iso-14001-2015-web.pdf

With firefox the preview still show the old version pdf, but if you download it, the version is correct.

The difference between two versions is in the first box bottom left: old one has only text, new one has a “Istituto Giordano” logo.

With Chrome, Safari, Opera, Edge, Explorer there are no issue.

Only firefox has this issue.

We tried to clear cache, browse in anonymous, modify PDF name... with no luck.

Thanks! Ste

Attached is a sample of how web pages display. These can either initially display this way or, as in this example, the page opened correctly, I stepped away for a few minutes and when I viewed the page again it looked like the example. I can have a page open and it is displaying correctly, then open a new tab and go to a different site and the text will look like the example.

I have cleared the cache, dumped all the cookies. Restarting the browser (I do this many times a day) will fix the current page but eventually another page will display like this.

I running version 84.0.2 64bit on a Mac Pro Mojave. I don't have this problem with other browsers like Chrome or Safari. I never see it on my Windows 10 system.

Some time in the last month or so Firefox has started downloading .csv files as .json. I need the files in .csv format so I can work with them in Excel. These are large files I don't want to deal with the trouble of converting them every time. I've started using Chrome just so the files download correctly. I can't find any setting to change to make .csv the default again.

when I type a comment on youtube, the text often "lags", the letters appear all together after a while, if I try to send the comment I get an error, and if I try to subscribe a channel I cannot, instead I get prompted to login while I am already logged. This is going for months, right now the only fix seems to switch to Opera... Can you guys provide solutions to this?

Hi there,

I have been reading xkcd for years and somewhat recently using Firefox on macOS (Big Sur) I don't get the full mouse over text panel on the comics. I get some of the text panel, but most of it isn't rendered. Safari works fine, and I'm fairly confident that last time I tried Firefox on Windows it also worked fine.

I'm just wondering if there is a bug on the mac version of Firefox, or if there is a setting I have wrong perhaps? Or maybe it's an issue with the website itself?

Any insight would be appreciated :)

Several days ago I've noticed that YouTube navigation menu on the left started to disappear. See pic-1. It may apper after several tries to open it in other tabs, but all in all mostly not visible. The second and the biggest problem - I can't log out from YouTube. See Pic-2.

I fully deleted Firefox, created new clean profile without any add-on etc, and tried to log in to YouTube - it didn't help. So I think it's not needed to mention all other basic things like cookie deleting etc were done. Problem is always here.

Hey team,

I hope you are doing great, I'm facing an issue with a table on my page, no matter what I do the image isn't sized correctly. They get compressed and look odd.

I'm not getting this issue on Chrome, can you please have a look at the table on this page and let me know what could be the issue.

I'll be really thankful as I have tried everything that I could think of. The image is also attached for your reference.

Thanks in advance
