I would like to have the old ctrl+tab behavior but at the same time use the new recentlyUsedOrder on a custom keybind

Hi.

I was looking how to restore the old ctrl+tab behavior and found https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1241201#answer-1174594 . This answered my first half of the question.

However, I do find the new ctrl+tab behavior useful, however not as a replacement of the old behavior, but as an additional feature.

Is there any way I can have ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab behave in the old way, while binding a custom keybinding to the new recently used order tab behavior? (say, e.g. binding it to win+tab)

Flash Player 32.0.0.101 Firefox v64 (64-bit) Windows 10

With this configuration Flash content does not work.

On Windows 7 Enterprise, the same version of Flash Player and Firefox

It looks like it is trying to load under Windows 10 but ultimately what is displayed is a blank screen.

Is anyone else running Windows 10 with Firefox and Flash Player and getting it to work. I cannot post the URL because the application is a inhouse application and requires logging in.

Hi all,

After searching and applying several settings, I am still getting those annoying messages, popups and whatsoever. No matter what I do. I always preferred Firefox as my most favorable browser for many, many years, however I noticed that I started using Chrome more and more because of all these little annoyances.

The last few things I tried are:

about:config dom.webnotifications.enabled (false) dom.push.enabled (false) dom.webnotifications.serviceworker.enabled (false) (for notifications)

about:config media.autoplay.allow-muted (false) media.autoplay.default (2) (for autoplay media)

These ones didn't help: media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed (false) media.autoplay.ask-permission (false)

Though media doesn't autoplay, I do get a notifcation about if I want to play the media or something similar. Sigh.

Also the help page on Firefox doesn't help at all, like this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay For example; I don't have the "For websites that autoplay sound"-option at all there. See screenshot included.

So what I am trying to here (maybe someone can give me the exact config options):

1. Disable permantly the auto-play function for all media and for all websites 2. Disable every single notification type; I don't want to be asked if I want to play media/sound/music, nor do I want to be asked if I want website notifications or any other kind of notification. I don't want to see a single message at all!!

I hope someone can give me the right settings and/or what to change to make this happen permantly. It's driving me nuts....! Seriously. NUTS! :S

Sidenote; I am also experiencing issues with Firefox on my OnePlus 6T. Sometimes when I enter an URL it doesn't load at all, the screen stays white and doesn't do anything. Closing and starting the app doesn't help. The only solution (sometimes) is to close all my tabs (doesn't matter if it's 10, 40 or 99 tabs). If that fails the solution is a reboot of the phone. And no, it's not the internet connection because a) Chrome wouldn't work, b) nor my other apps. I do use Synchronization between my accounts. The OnePlus 6T was a fresh installation from a couple of weeks ago. Before that (and on my other phone) I had this issue also....

Maybe someone can shed some light as well on the Android issue??

Thank you in advance!

Regards

When I go to att.net to check email, firefox takes me to several other sites, one of which sends me a scare screen, hoping I will click on it. I suppose you would call this malware. Is there a setting in FireFox to prevent it from going to sites I did not ask it to?

I will try to add a screen capture of the offending screen.

Prior to the most recent update, if I clicked on a link, it opened in a new window. If I closed the window, I was back where I started.

Now, links open in the same tab, no matter how I select options under "TABS". Getting back to where I started can be very tedious and confusing.

Opening links in a new tab would be OK, but that doesn't work either. All links open in the same tab.

How can I improve the way links open?

Just for the past few days 12-19-18 or so I've noticed this happening. I'll get an email, click "print" and it will open the email in a pop-up window. I select "Adobe PDF" as the printer, and then a window usually comes up showing the progress, and then it opens the pdf in Adobe Acrobat.

Recently, however, when that window comes up and shows the progress bar, it freezes. Sometimes I get error messages (shown in screenshots) but mostly I have to go to Task Manager, shut down firefox.exe processes, and I can't print the file to a PDF at all anymore. When I use this feature in Chrome, it works fine. I mean, it used to in Firefox, too, I don't know what changed.

Hi,

When I try download and install mozilla firefox it gives a prompt "This version of Firefox requires Microsoft Windows 7 x64 or newer". But the fact is that I'm installing it on a Win 7 64-bit environment and the firefox installer file is also 64-bit. I have verified the minimum system requirements for firefox installation and it meets the criteria. But still it doesn't allow me to install and gives the said prompt.

Tried various install files and no luck. When I try download it is the stub installer file that is available for latest versions. Refer the screenshot of the error.

I watched a video on Youtube and than looked through the comment section to read the comments. The YouTube channel user had a comment with a link to his personal website. I clicked the link and it immediately took me to a website that looked like a Firefox website. It said my firefox browser was out of date and asked me to download a file. I wasn't thinking and I downloaded the file and gave it permission to run. I immediately realized what I had done and I ran task manager and killed the running process. The file name was Firefox_72.6.js. The file was located at: https://dl. dropboxusercontent .com/ s/4xs37admbmtchrl/Firefox_72.6.js?dl=1

I haven't experienced anything bad on my computer because of this, but I don't think mozilla would have me download an update from dropboxusercontent .com. I did a search on Google for that filename, but I didn't find anything, and I wasn't able to find anything about it being a malicious file. Does anyone have any information or advice they can give me. I'm using Windows 7 and I turned on Security Essentials and downloaded the latest virus definitions and I'm doing a full system scan.

Attempting to access a portal from a secure trusted site and up popped a page with persistent beeping having a warning that a problem existed (!) and to call an 866-xxx-xxxx number for help. Called Apple tech who helped clear the annoying sound, checked everything conceivable, cleared deep caches in library along with histories and website data. Ran a Malwarebytes scan which was clean. After all that, opened firefox again - same problem. Apple tech then stated he'd done all he could and the problem was likely on firefox's end. After we hung up, I did a clean uninstall and reinstall of firefox, opened the browser, and there it was again! Did a force quit and haven't used firefox since. If anyone has knowledge of this problem, please use as much English as possible, as clearly I barely know what I'm talking about... also, I temporarily have no current access to the computer in question.

I've tried closing and restarting Firefox, rebooting the computer and "Hiding and viewing" the bookmarks bar but can get it back on top. I am however able to open the bookmarks in the sidebar.
