I am trying to upload audio files (MP3) to my web site. Every time FireFox updates, it will not allow uploading, it just stays in an endless uploading loop. I have to use Task Manager to escape the loop.

I am using Net Solutions website builder tool. FireFox has worked well up until about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I used IE and it works flawlessly.  ???

Web site: www.floridacrossroads.com

Tried two computers - Win10 and Win7.

I refreshed FireFox browsers on both computers last week and got it to work, but that is a PIA, and I would rather switch permanently now to Chrome or IE if this is going to continue to be an issue with FireFox.

Thank you, John Champlain

Usually when I start Firefox, it starts with the settings I have made at the beginning.

1) I have chosen a startup page as default

2) When downloading, I want to be asked where I want to download

3) I have three active add-ons that make my surfing life easier

About two weeks back, this is what I experience every time I start Firefox after I start my computer, and often it's enough that about an hour has passed since the last time I used/ran Firefox:

1) My chosen homepage doesn't open. Instead I get the two default tabs with the pages that are default after a fresh install of Firefox.

2) The download folder is set to default, instead of the setting that I chose myself.

3) My add-ons are nowhere to be found, and I have to add them all over again.

My work-around is to log in and sync Firefox, but that should not be necessary. Every time I start Firefox, it's back to default settings, and it takes a minute or half a minute for the sync to finish.

I have tried a complete uninstall (including cleaning the Mozilla folder from %appdata%) and then installing Firefox again. But it just doesn't work.

So, help.

When I click on a link which is: osu://b/1006632

Firefox says:

The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (osu) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

You might need to install other software to open this address.

I have the program osu installed on my computer. How do I make the address in Firefox redirect to the osu program?

Look if you check my history here you will see solved....that; it appears is incorrect.

1. I am just seeking to keep the file save location to the location I choose, until I choose to change it. NOT a random rotation of previous sessions, save directories. NOT having to watch for this continuously and stop using the browser out of plain frustration. NOT a complex change of settings in the (registry or ini file) deep inner workings, that does little.

2. Why is it necessary to have this feature as implemented, with the changing directories based off of previous locations?

In coming here again I found that search queries from visits to sites were being offered as an auto-fill option.

Therefore, I have to ask why would 'Japanese Mythology' be a relevant selection in filling a text box in a troubleshooting forum?

And why would you implement such a feature if it has no logical connection other than a 'fillable' text box.

When clicking on a file that is to be downloaded from the internet a dialog box opens. The dialog box offers a few choices but there is no way to choose because the radio buttons are missing. Also, there is a scroll bar but is not visible; you have to "guess" where it is to find it. Safe mode displays the same behavior. A reset didn't help. I'm using openSUSE 42.2. Thanks.

When logging in asks to update password but don't want to update. This happens every time since the web site encrypts password so firefox thinks it is a new password. Sometime it updates even though I say no, then have to go into preferences and change password back to original since it picks up the encrypted password. Would be nice if given option to not ask again only options are update or not now.

I can no longer log in to my verizon.com account (no email, no paying the bill, nothing). The tab just keeps refreshing and bouncing between waiting, reading, transferring, sending and connecting. I also can't print from my American Greetings "create a card" account. I can log in but when I try to print, I get no action, not even an error message. I really don't want to go back to IE but that's the only way both of these problems are resolved. Any suggestions?

I have a VM running 'host-only' on 192.168.247.140 that I access through Ffx on my desktop. I need to see the pop-ups from this VM but I want to block most other pop-ups.

I cannot enter the IP Address into the Whitelist without it prefixing it with "http://" and I'm assuming that this is why Ffx still blocks pop-ups from this VM. The actual address is shown in the att. .jpg.

I've tried editing the permisssions.sqlite row to remove both the http// and separately just the http from the entry but it still fails to allow these pop-ups. The entry is shown in the second file.

Any ideas very welcome, thanks, Keith

I have read too many misleading and uniformed statements about installing and enabling Flash Player in Firefox. However after reading way too many comments one little tidbit made as an afterthought by a respondent GOT MY ATTENTION. it said, " be sure Firefox is closed [as well as IE]. Everyone knows to down load and install one has Firefox OPEN because you go to the arrow and click on the executable. WRONG. You must close Firefox and go find the executable somewhere in your download folder and execute it from explorer. The Voila it all works fine and Shockwave shows up in your Add-ons ready for action. Hope this helps all.

I have a gray padlock with a yellow triangle and a white exclamation point in it on my hotmail (Outlook) email page in Mozilla. Upon investigation I find that my connection is not secure and that I am vulnerable to man-in-the-middle issues. I have spent parts of the last several days trying to understand (from all that I have found to read about this) and still don't understand or like this. Frankly, some of the info sounds contradictory.

I want my green padlock back. How do I get that?

I've opened my hotmail (Outlook) email in IE and Chrome and the only place I'm seeing this disturbing warning is in Mozilla. I'm a long time Mozilla user and prefer to stay one. But, this connection issue is about to send me to a different browser.

I came across this web page, and a dialog box popped up that said something like 'You have chosen to open firefox-prefs.js. Do you want to continue?' with the buttons "download" and "cancel". I clicked cancel.

This seems like a big security issue - I was running vanilla firefox without my usual "noscript" extension installed.

Here's a sequence of events following up to this point: 1. I've been having problems with netflix for a while. While on netflix, Firefox would say "firefox is installing components needed to play the audio or video on this page. Please try again later." 2. Trying to fix netflix, I first refreshed firefox, and deleted the "prefs.js" file. But that didn't fix netflix. 3. I then went to look at my add-ons. Once there, I found that firefox was saying that my current version of shockwave flash was a security issue. 4. I updated shockwave flash. 5. Firefox didn't remove the old entry in the "add-ons manager" for the old version of shockwave flash. 6. I closed firefox, and uninstalled shockwave with windows' "programs and features". When I opened firefox again, the entry was gone from the add-ons list. 7. Netflix worked, and I started looking up words on merriam-webster. 8. I went back to the netflix tab, and that's when I got the pop-up dialog box, which I mentioned earlier. 9. I clicked cancel on that dialog box, and saw one of the merriam-webster tabs had changed, so I clicked on it, and saw what lies before you in this screen grab.

In case the screen grab doesn't work, the web page was: https://eoxetinforwebradios.org/2581185766957/87252e55b7d14d130eff8c462bebfb9f/c39655a7689a88ce722e43dfa58461a6.html

I'm not really trying to ask a question here, but if you think I faulted somewhere, let me know. I'm mostly trying to raise awareness of this issue to the right people.

I try to download something that uses adf.ly to work, and it says there's an ad blocker browser extension enabled. I look through my add-ons in Firefox and there's nothing in Extensions or Add-ons that is anything close to an ad blocker. After poking around, I found that Firefox was updated with a built-in ad blocker. Is this true, and how do I fix it?
