I recently transferred all my data from Mac OS Mojave to Mac OS Catalina including bookmarks for Firefox. All is working well except for the fact that I cannot seem to delete any transferred bookmarks. I tried exporting all bookmarks and importing them back, but still cannot seem to delete any of the bookmarks. Any help/advice on this is highly appreciated. Thanks.

Pointofmail track emails messages sent in Gmail. They have prevented messages being sent. They do not provide a telephone number to call nor a street address. They have an email address (support@pointofmail.com) but don't respond to anything. The problem arose when I took up a free 30 day trial with their product, after which I did not wish to subscirbe. There is nowhere giving the "no thanks" option. Do you know how I can free myself from Pointofmail when Gmail is used in Firefox? Gmail works OK in other browsers (Thunderbird and Google). Please advise.

I've been searching for the answer to this for a couple of hours and nothing has worked. When I start typing in the URL bar, I only want websites I've visited previously to show up, in the order of most frequently visited. It used to do that until a few hours ago. Now instead I get previous search results and bookmarked sites only. Can I change it back to its previous function or will I have to revert to an older version of Firefox?

eta: I figured out how to get the websites to show again, but I still don't want the search history showing up.

It seems that Firefox on Win10 does not present alternate stylesheets in local files.

See for example: https://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/007/alternatives

I have a trivial HTML file, e.g., c:\alternate_stylesheet.html, with a few of those examples of alternative stylesheets, like:

 <link rel="alternate stylesheet"
       type="text/css"
       href="http://www.w3.org/StyleSheets/Core/Steely" title=Steely>
 <link rel="alternate stylesheet"
       type="text/css"
       href="http://dbaron.org/style/forest" title="Forest (by David Baron)">

Viewing such a trivial HTML page in Firefox on Win10, the View > Page Style list is the default - just "No Style" and "Basic Page Style". The list does not include the head link alternate stylesheet options.

Why not?

IE has no trouble with these (menu View > Style presents them as expected), which seems to confirm that the trivial HTML code is correct.

Any advice?

Since updating Firefox to 78.01 (I haven't updated recently so have skipped a few versions) a basic HTML5 website no longer works, the page based on a Uniflip brouchre doesn't load correctly http://www.tmlcnc.com I have tried safe mode, disabling addons, updating addons etc, but no difference at all.

Website works fine in IE 11.09600

Not had this sort of problem before, websites normally work in FireFox but not IE !

Any ideas ?

I can't get spellcheck to work. I'm using Firefox on a Mac. This is true even when using a box with multiple lines.

I have ticked the box in preferences that says Check your spelling as you type. I have a language chosen - English (United Kingdom). I tried installing a different dictionary in Add-ons, but it made no difference.

I've gone into about:config and adjusted the settings in layout.spellcheckDefault and checked services.sync.prefs.sync.layout.spellcheckDefault, which made no difference.

I've read posts that say to right click and look at the dictionaries, but this doesn't work for me (could be because I'm using a Mac). Same with pressing Control.

Any thoughts?

Both Avast and Malwarebytes alert when I open a new webpage or navigate through a website. Both state that they have aborted a connection to mobiclean.xyz identifying it as adware. The identified file doing the redirecting is c:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe. This is only a recent issue within the last few updates. I have scanned using both programs and they indicate that there isn't a threat (Avast both smart scan and full scan). Malwarebytes classifies the event as "RTP detection" and Avast classifies it as "Other:Malware-gen [Trj]. I am not sure if this is a false positive, some kind of Trojan, or the code in firefox.exe is being misidentified. Has anybody else experienced this? If so, what did you do? As of this writing I am scanning with Spybot Search and Destroy. Any information is appreciated. Thanks.

I just got a new computer and i thought this problem would go away, but it is still present. It is becoming EXTREMELY frustrating. I love Firefox and have used it for a long time but this issue is making it very difficult.

Hi all,

we are using Firefox for more than 5000 users in our corporating. We deliver Firefox via SCCM packages to clients and include a config file for setting a few (fix) settings for all users. We do not use GPO (Group Policies) for Firefox.

Now our issue: we want to have a initial state, so that Ecosia becomes default search engine (changeable). There were a lot of different parameters for about:config (and cfg-File) for setting an initial or fix search engine (such as browser.search.defaultenginename), but all of them are deprecated (due to maleware/adware issues?).

All I find now is the parameter named browser.search.searchEnginesUR, but it only retrieves a central URL with a list of search engines.

So I thought about these possible solutions: - Finding an other parameter to control the default search engine (or Addon, or GPO,...) - or: Creating an own (hosted) search engines list with Ecosia on top level (first entry).


Thank you so much in advance! Best Regards, Yannick Wickum

I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 and i keep getting notices to upgrade. But the last time I upgraded, Firefox changed the locations of my tabs from below the address bar to above the address bar and also changed the behavior of the address bar. It took me a couple of weeks to find the answers and get things back the way they were. I don't want to upgrade Firefox because I have no idea what it might change this time. Is there a way to keep Firefox from sending me upgrade notices when I don't want them?
