My settings should not allow any changes to 'Top Sites' yet FF (currently 78.0.2) will change my sties w/o permission. This seems to happen if a new version becomes available and I don't immediately update to it. Should not happen.

How can I solve for this when the settings already should make it impossible? This 'auto change' won't hose my bookmarks, it's relatively minor since it keeps some of my top sites. But it's really odd. I use only uBlock Origin, the rest is plain vanilla.

Thank you.

Normalerweise werden die Browserfenster so geöffnet, wie das letzte von ihnen geschlossen wurde. Das funktioniert außer beim Firefox mit allen anderen Fenstern, egal, ob Edge, Chrome, Explorer etc.

Beim FF geht es nicht. Er öffnet immer an der selben Stelle in der selben Größe, unpassend zu meinen Desktopeinstellungen.

  • Win10 Pro (64-Bit)
  • Firefox 78.0.2 (64-Bit)
  • Bildschirmauflösung 2560x1440 px Querformat
  • Firefoxfenster öffnet mit ca. 1000x1092 px

Was kann ich tun, um diesen Fehler zu beheben?

I have been watching football on one or two Sky Sports websites through Virgin Media which redirects me to the Sky Sports log on which I do as a Virgin Media Customer. This has been running smoothly for well over a year. Suddenly it has stopped with the error message "Secure Connection Failed". I have tried adding Sky Sports to the allowed web-sites on my security (Kaspersky and Malwarebytes) and clearing the caches as instructed by Mozilla but to no avail. What do I need to do to enable me to continue watching Sky Sports on my laptop. I'm afraid Virgin Media support told me to go back to the shop from which I bought the laptop, now 3-4 years ago.

Hello. The screenshot option in my browser is not working. The small scissors icon beside "Take a screenshot" is missing and the button doesn't work. It should be mentioned I recently installed Firefox in a new Windows 10 laptop and this problem is occurring particularly in this laptop. Is the Snipping Tool disabling the screenshot option in Firefox? Is so how do I solve this problem?

Firefox is saying there is an inline script (seen in first attached image) which for one is not inline, and secondly starts in the middle of a seemingly arbitrary variable (seen in the third image).

Chrome is able to accept this script, and has no such error (seen in the second image).

I'm quite sure this is not normal behavior, and I want to make sure my site is fully compatible with Firefox.

Error message: E:\Users\Sarah\AppData\Local\Temp\xxxxx.xxx.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

I do want to mention upfront that this issue is also affecting Chrome and IE. It's not solely a Firefox issue, but I'm hoping someone here can help me anyways.

  • This happens for any filetype, from any source.
  • It started happening about a month ago.
  • Prior to that, I installed a new motherboard, RAM and processor. I'm fairly certain there was a period between these events in which it worked fine, but I am mentioning it just in case it's relevant.
  • If it's a small file and I try repeatedly, it sometimes will eventually download.
  • Even if a large file successfully starts downloading, it will eventually fail. It usually fails immediately though.
  • I sometimes have success downloading the same file in Chrome, but it also often fails. IE as well.

I have tried the following:

  • Used Refresh Firefox
  • Cleared download history
  • Changed download location
  • Reset browser.download values
  • Disabled firewalls and antivirus/spyware
  • Reinstalled Firefox using Run as Admin (first uninstalled previous version and deleted all program files that I could find, including profiles)
  • Cleared cookies and cache
  • Ran in safe mode
  • Verified Temp folder filepath was valid
  • Verified the PART file was created in that path -- it exists until I hit OK on the error message, then it disappears
  • Ran Firefox as admin

I think these are outdated methods I only found on non-official sources, but will mention them just in case:

  • I found some sources that said to delete Compreg.dat; I could not find this file in the place listed, nor could I find it with a search of the entire drive
  • Verified places.sqlite was not set to read-only
  • Removed read-only from entire profile folder and subfolders

In Options > Security: 'Block dangerous & deceptive content': true, 'Block dangerous downloads': false

Internet speed test: 58.96 Mbps download; 148.04 Mbps upload. No connection loss.

This problem is absolutely maddening. I'll be so grateful if anyone can help me out!! :( Thank you in advance, I know this was a long read!

I love the AutoFill feature, with some exceptions. And I am hoping someone can offer a solution, even if it is to tell me I am doing it wrong.

It seems like others would have a similar problem, and it is sort of difficult to explain, although I'd think there would be a simple solution. Anyway, let me try to explain...

When I use the autofill option, it is usually while placing an order, or filling out my account details for whatever shopping site, or gaming profile, etc. But I have multiple addresses I need to consider when I am shopping, and need to send the order to one or the other, instead of my regular address. Like placing an order that I want sent to my mother's address.

As anyone knows, when you change something, like the address, state, zip or phone number, you end up with several autofill entries. Like this...

First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but I can't see it in the pop-up) First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but my work address, which I also don't see) First Name, Last NAME First Name, Last Name FIRST NAME, Last Name First Name, Last Name

These pop up, all valid options, the next time you start filling out a form. Which is great, because ONE of them is the one you would like to use, but there is no way to see WHICH one points to the one you need. The first one is my normal address, phone, etc, but the autofill pop up doesn't show you anything other than the name, the second is my work, but I can't see that it is... only the name. The third might be my mom's address, but again, I have no idea because only my name is shown...etc etc etc.

Is there a better autofill plugin out there, one that lets you label them? Or some way to show more than just the name? Just showing me the same name 12 times, without any way to know what the right one to use is, kinda makes the autofill feature useless for me. If I only had one phone, or one address, etc, the feature would work great. But since I have about a dozen addresses I routinely use, each with their own unique state or zipcode, or phone number, has rendered autofill useless unless I only need the common "top" one.

I hope I've made it clear what the problem is. And no, using a unique firefox profile for each is not the answer. I'd have to log out/off firefox and switch profiles several times in one shopping or gaming session, which would only make the solution highly annoying.

It would be nice to find a plugin, or any other solution, that would let me label, or differentiate each from the other when the autofill pop-up gives me the option to fill the form.

Like... Home - First Name, Last Name Work - First Name, Last Name Mom's - First Name, Last Name Gary's - First Name, Last Name

Anyone have a solution, or feel my pain? Or am I simply doing it wrong?

ANY help is greatly appreciated.

when i choose show your bookmarks i have the correct list and favicons as i had in previous versions of firefox ,im using the light theme and its applicable to all themes,so here is the issue..moving your mouse pointer over the selected bookmark use to give it a dark blue highlight and any bookmark you chose would highlight like this,now i have no highlight on placing the cursor over it,just a text box in mono showing the url this seems a bit vague when moving over several bookmarks and none is highlighted.ive recently moved to windows 10 pro and was clean install and up to date with a new profile on firefox .only the bookmarks were a html file imported from a usb stick so cant see that being an issue. firefox is also up to date with adblocker ultimate as the only addon.

Hi, Since I've updated to Firefox 79 beta I can't access my university campus website. It worked until Firefox 78 and it works with latest Chrome and Edge, but not in Firefox 79 beta and nightly.

The error is: "Website will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it": https://support.mozilla.org/ca/kb/xframe-neterror-page?as=u&utm_source=inproduct

Is it a bug or a "feature"? UOC is one of the biggest online university of Spain, it will be a "disaster" if students can't access it with Firefox.

I can explain you how to reproduce it because it's the private area and you need student credentials to enter, but the login website is: http://cv.uoc.edu

In the console I can see some errors like this: Cookie “example” will be soon treated as cross-site cookie against “http://cv.uoc.edu/rb/inici/plin/fonts/icons.woff?cc152853f8bb07259fb3eb89b6fbfee7” because the scheme does not match.
