Just installed Adblock Plus on both IE8 and Firefox 37 – got successful messages on both. Checked on IE8, ABP is working great. Went onto Firefox and its not working.

Went to Windows add/remove programs… found the IE version BUT the Firefox version is not present. Went back and tried to install Adblock Plus again and got the following message:

“Adblock Plus could not be installed because Firefox could not modify the needed file”

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

WHAT CAN I DO TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM?

PS: I fully removed Firefox 36 with Revo and reinstalled version 37 – same problem.

I'm seeing a really weird issue - https://rs2018.raffworks.com/ - on Firefox PC only, after opening a couple of the items up, the scrollbar completely stops working. Sometimes one item, sometimes three or four. But then bang! the scrollbar just locks up completely and it's impossible to scroll the page.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? Firefox on macOS is fine.

Bookmarks sync problems: Bookmarks keep rearranging themselves in the bookmarks toolbar, and do not sync completely on Windows and Android.

My setup

I'm using Firefox 47.0 on Fedora (64-bit GNU/Linux) with GNOME shell, and on Windows 10 (64-bit). I also have Firefox Sync on an Android tablet, but I don't do as much web browsing on my tablet, so I haven't needed to look at the bookmarks there...


The problem(s)

On Fedora, the bookmarks in the Firefox bookmarks toolbar rearrange themselves. The bookmarks in one folder shift from the bottom to the top, and some bookmarks in the toolbar shift from left to right. I arrange my bookmarks by loose priority, so this annoying. Whenever I notice the bookmarks being out of order, I drag them back to where they were, but they always move themselves again later. This has been an ongoing issue for a couple months; I've only seriously attempted to troubleshoot the issue over the past week or so, and I'm not having any luck.

I don't think I've ever noticed the bookmarks moving themselves in the middle of a session, so I believe it's actually happening when I close or launch Firefox. However, reproducing this issue has been tricky, since the bookmarks do not *always* shuffle themselves every time I launch Firefox. Depending on how often I open/close the application, I may notice the bookmarks moving themselves once every other day, or a couple times in a single day.

This may be a separate issue, but I noticed it around the same time: On Windows 10, my bookmarks do not sync at all. There three or four bookmarks in the toolbar, but these do not get updated when I change them on my Linux machine, and none of the other bookmarks have synced to the Windows machine.


Things that I've already tried

I've tried reverting my bookmarks to a recent automatic backup (Library > Import and Backup > Restore). No change.

I've tried disabling all addons. No change.

I tried refreshing Firefox, to "reset to factory defaults". No change.

I tried deleting the file `xulstore.json` in my Firefox profile. No change.

I tried installing and running the Places Maintenance extension. I didn't entirely understand all the text output it generated while running, but I don't think it found any real errors. Anyway, no change.

I tried backing up my exports to a JSON file, then closing Firefox, then deleting the places.sqlite file, then restarting Firefox, and importing the bookmarks JSON file. No change.

Bookmarks still rearrange themselves on Linux and do not sync at all on Windows  :(

Enter key or Paste+Go don't work in my Firefox address bar. I have searched, uninstalled, deleted Firefox folders and reloaded Firefox twice, turned off my add-ons, created a new profile, ran in Firefox safe mode, refreshed Firefox, scanned for malware using multiple tools and found no malware, deleted all matter of search bars, etc. Nothing resolves the address bar non-functionality.

No, I can't type "about:config" in the address bar and press enter to forward a file.

My wife says she loaded a Java update that didn't work as intended. Wonderful. I unloaded all things Java and still no good.

Thankfully, my homepage is set to Google and I can search in Google and click the links to navigate.

I appreciate any help that you can provide. Thanks.

My husband has been using a reliable medical site for years...suddenly the message popped up "untrusted site." We contacted the site--they connected us to their tech support--he tried everything with us over the phone (cleaning cookies, downloading latest version of firefox) but the only way to solve it was to give firefox the go-ahead to ignore their warning. We then got the site. Today, the same message popped up on another site he uses regularly. Any ideas why this should suddenly happen on reliable sites used successfully for years?

My firefox browser will not open, so I can not try most of the solutions recommended. I do not want to lose stored information such as bookmarks and pass codes so would unstalling and reinstalling cause me to lose that information? I need to speak to a person to help with this, but do not know how to go about it. Should I be contacting Norton or Mozilla?

Hi there The most recent update for #Firefox has a "bug fix" (1565315) for which the access to details are denied. That's peculiar for an open source project. The bug is about Russian users having their default search engine changed. Is this just a geolock? VPN didn't work. I like to be able to view the details of any update I'm installing, for obvious privacy reasons. When will these details be made available so I can update? Thanks.

Can anyone point me to the firefox version 28 exe file fore windows?

I can find this link " https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ " but it lists a number for version 28s (28.0, .0b1/2/3.../9) and the sub-directories there are a mess of stuff that I have no idea where to go and what to get.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I updated to 29 and the GUI change is too much for me, so I installed a really old version of ff and am looking to update back to 28 until I feel like I want to adjust to 29.

I have the "flash cookie remover" installed. I recently rebooted my router, giving me a new IP address. Then I opened Firefox in Private Browsing mode. When I searched youtube for "replace radiator" it auto-suggested "jeep cherokee" (my car) and "honda civic" (my parents car, which I occasionally work on).

Private Browsing isn't private! How do I protect myself from being uniquely identified by companies?

Using firefox 45.8.0 ESR on Windows.

Trying to load https://secure.scheduleonce.com/dana

The page doesn't load, and in the network panel I see a crossed padlock icon instead of green padlock icon for this request: OPTIONS https://cfproxy.scheduleonce.com/get-data/GetLandingPageLayout

on Chrome / Safari / IE and even more recent version of FF this page loads fine without any problems.

Is there any way to debug what's wrong with that reques to resource exactly ? FF doesn't give me any information as to what went wrong.

I suspect it might be related to the fact it's a preflight CORS request (the requested domain is different than that hosted page domain).

Please help.

Thanks.

Has anyone else run into a problem with drop-downs after moving to ESR 52.2? We had no problems on the previous version 45.9. After the update to 52.2 the lists in our drop-downs are now double spaced. The same drop-down is also fine in Internet Explorer and Chrome. We believe this is also causing issues when doing Print to PDF on some other forms.
