Firefox now has ad blocker and it causes issues with sites I visit. I don't know how to modify it; I am not using in private browsing. It's on all the time.

I no longer see ads when I read email, look at a magazine or newspaper article etc. Some sites don't like this and won't let me view what's on them because I am blocking ads. I have looked at Options>Privacy and Security>Tracking Protection and it is not turned on. It is only on when I use a privacy window which I am not using. I have no idea where to look to be able to modify this. I have cookies enabled.

I will admit I have far fewer crashes now that the ads do not display in email and I am happy about that but when a site I belong to won't let me read there because ads are blocked that becomes a problem. Do I have any control over this feature? I only use Firefox on my pc that runs Win 7 Professional and I use version 60.3 esr 32 bit because I still run into situations where Java is required and it was explained in an earlier question that I should use Firefox esr because of this.

When I want to search for something on a website, I hit CTRL-F which activates full-screen mode. I would like to know this shortcut can be reprogrammed to search for something within a page instead of activating full-screen. I tried searching this community and on-line for this information but could not find it. Thank you for your time. I use Mozilla FireFox 67.0.4.

I'm getting big blue advertisements in my URL bar on sites like reddit.com for some extension or another. Not that I ever asked for these, but I can't seem to turn them off?

A quick google led me to believe there was a tickbox under the 'general' settings in preferences, but I can't find anything. A search in about:config revealed nothing either. How do I hide these sadly in-built adverts?

I'm having problems with my dropdown notification and profile menus at this particular site:

https://splinternews.com/

The problem only started after the patch for v.66. The problem is that when I navigate to the site, the dropdown menus - which you get by clicking on the numbered icon or profile icon in the top right of your page after you log in - work sometimes and other times you can't. I makes the site mostly unusuable since you can't see your notifications. It's kind of a crap-shoot. I thought messing around with and toggling on and off "Performance" standards might work, and it appears that it does change things for a minute or two, but then it ceases to matter.

Do I need to downgrade? Where is the downgrade page?

I have a problem with setting firefox. I made according to the instructions:

Open the Scratchpad, switch to Browser context, and run Services.prefs.getDefaultBranch(null).setCharPref("app.update.url", "http://10.0.80.51/update/update.xml").

Instructions from the page https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Setting_up_an_update_server

The app.update.url entry has changed to the right one. After the browser restart, however, he returned the original. Firefox is still one of the original update servers.

What am I doing wrong?

The facebook tab seems to fail to work. After I log onto facebook with a tab, I open another one, but it shows the facebook page logged on with the account that I chose on the 1st tab. If I log off here, the original tab also logs off. The 1st tab has a blue line underneath while the 2nd one is black. Does anyone have any hints on this?

Greetings,

I've tried all avenues that normally resolves the issue of unsaved passwords, including cleaning out caches, running in safe mode etc. In fact, I tried two different MacOSX machines, one running running 10.13.8, the other 10.14.1. Nothing works, Firefox does not offer to save credentials. I thought there might be some new HTML trick to disable login saving I'm not aware of but Safari had no problem saving the password. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Lost pinned tabs (roaming or ue-v profiles)

Hello,

more than one week users start report that they are lost pinned tabs. In next logon they not see last pinned tabs, and can see only a half of them.

Users use roaming profiles and some of them use ue-v profiles.

I found that Mozilla Firefox try open files in AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles. This folder not sync for roaming profile. And remove every user logoff. For UE-V unlike roaming , this folder remains (not delete after logoff), but is not sync to a nearby computer. Just AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox - sync with profile.

Is this causing a problem?


I also noticed that after updating the file appears "AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\installs.ini" with content [308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/6pkh0btp.default-release Locked=1

and in profile.ini

[Install308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/6pkh0btp.default-release Locked=1 [Profile1] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/tldv0ieg.default Default=1 [Profile0] Name=default-release IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/6pkh0btp.default-release [General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2

What does it mean?

Thanks )

When having a png, pdf, jpeg, gif etc. open, it Firefox would usually show a little icon for it on the tab bar, showing you what image is opened on it without having to be on the tab (this only worked when the image wasn't too big or the there weren't too many tabs open at once). However, these icons don't show up anymore at all since the last update. I tried refreshing the tabs several times, even closing them and opening them again, yet to no avail. This makes it difficult to know which one of the images you have opened is the one you need, as all tabs only show the title of the image, not what image is on it. I'd just like to know if this is a bug, if that feature was simply removed, or if there's some setting that I can enable to make them show up again.

Thanks in advance! :D

when browsing through adult sites some links go to the MS virus scan page which stops you doing anything to close the window. To stop it you go to the Task manager and end firefox. this means you have killed all the windows open even if they are not affected. Surely in this day and age you can recognise it and block it? It does not lock up the computer only the window it is on but there are a lot of people that will not know how to get past it so I would really like you to look into this for us. THANK YOU
