You are asking people to support Mozilla Firefox by joining and donating but when you indicate to me how to use it to install it and what you say doesn't coincide with what you have on your page, it is frustrating to say the least. In your instructions it says clearly to Go to Menu, press Help, but, alas, there is no Help on the Menu! I think I will uninstall Firefox and go back to what I had before. Your technical support doesn't help me at all. Why don't you change your program to avoid these problems?

Please, no body is ret**d enough to not know what he's doing in such pity case. I heard a legend there is about:config setting to get rid of that question.

Security should never think for the user. It should give option atleast like ("NEVER AGAIN"). Bad thing is that security treats every user as bunch of id**ts.

PS: I was seeking the support by Google search engine so I'm sure there was no solution for that.

Thanks for your support.

(Firefox is getting LESS useful with every fucking update and every addon/plugin it breaks. I AM NOT USING A TABLET OR A PHONE, please stop trying to make me change to Chrome.)

Browser suggestion: pop-up blacklist

This site: https://www.lawanswers.com.au/threads/ebay-and-paypal-australian-consumer-law-on-withholding-payments.6537/

Popped out a new window in the background when I highlighted some text.

1. Every time JavaScript is used to pop-up a new tab or window, an icon should be made available to report the site for unwanted pop-ups. The site could be added to a blacklist. The blacklist should be downloaded in whole rather than queried on Firefox servers for privacy (Mozilla does care about privacy doesn't it?).

2. If a site is on the blacklist and it tries to pop-up a tab/window then the popup could be blocked and same icon could highlight for say 10 seconds. Clicking the icon in this case would give the options to open the popup, white-list the page for the user, vote against the blacklist. Something like:

[ ] Show the blocked page. [ ] White-list this site for me. [ ] I don't think this site should be blacklisted

[ OK ] [Cancel]

Some fuzzy logic could perhaps be used to determine whether or not to keep sites on the blacklist. Sites with very large amounts of blacklisting+white-listing could be manually looked at.

Also: I don't ever want anything happening when I highlight text other than the text being high-lighted, it's not necessary and it completely ruins the browsing experience. No excuses, it's bad. Add a white-list if necessary for the 0.01% edge cases where this might be useful.

I have no idea WHAT they changed in quantum that makes it do this, but it's made the browser 4x slower rather than their advertised 2x faster.

So all the previous questions and solutions for this problem suggest it's addons and probably the users fault for the slowness of quantum. However I disagree Firefox 56, with all the same addons runs perfectly fine continuously with multiple tabs open, and my normal usage for extended periods of time, when switching tabs, minimizing, etc.

Firefox Quantum with all the same addons does not, after extended time periods it slows down extremely, when switching tabs, minimizing, etc. This includes the nightly, the beta, and the developer version, which I tried all three of because THEY had been suggested to fix the problem as well. I even attempted the about:memory "solution" which did absolutely nothing. I want a solution and/or a Fix, other than my current which is having uninstalled quantum completely and reverted to 56 version, I would LIKE quantum to work.

In Firefox 56.0.2 and before, it is really easy to copy texts and drag pictures (and save them) simply by moving across your finger on the screen; a simple double touch on a word on the box of google translate selects it and gives you the meaning of that word; rearranging the tabs also can happen by moving them with your finger.

None of the above no longer works in the new versions of Firefox (Firefox Quantum). I tried to find add-ons to make touch experience with Firefox Quantum less bothersome but to no avail. I'm trying to stick to the Firefox 56 but it keeps updating (although I have disable the automatic update), so for now I need to uninstall and reinstall older versions of Firefox every few days.

I would greatly appreciate it if somebody can help me solve this problem.

Hi,

so I have yet to upgrade my browser due to the lack of add-on support with quantum.

I need my googlebar to be installed with the new updated version. Is there any way around this or a hack of some sort that can enable this? The standard Firefox search just wont cut it and googlebar is/was the only bar that actually did everything I needed it to.

Can someone please make this addon compatible with the new build? Please!?!?

Thanks,

Unexplained Exception Errors in Console

Often I am on a page and it will hang for a bit, so I resorted to having the Browser Console open when visiting some of the pages where I have noticed it happening to see what if any errors are presented in the console that might shed light on that.

Well, I can't say I didn't get what I asked for, hundreds of thrown exceptions but frankly I can't make sense of them and when trying to research them, all Mozilla says is that its a generic error where we shove anything we don't know how to explain, so that's immensely helpful - not.

So I am hoping someone here has seen this or at least knows how to figure out what it is and what's causing it beyond, its a generic error for things we don't know and so therefore there is not actual helpful resource :)

In particular, it says it is from ThreadSafeDevToolsUtils.js:88 but looking at it provides literally no helpful insight.

Here is the error (hundreds of them, but I'll give you just one copy):

"Handler function threw an exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsITraceableChannel.setNewListener]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/webconsole/network-monitor.js :: _setupResponseListener :: line 1262" data: no] Stack: _setupResponseListener@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/webconsole/network-monitor.js:1262:28 _createNetworkEvent@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/webconsole/network-monitor.js:1138:5 _onRequestHeader@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/webconsole/network-monitor.js:1163:5 NetworkMonitor.prototype.observeActivity<@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/webconsole/network-monitor.js:1015:7 exports.makeInfallible/<@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/ThreadSafeDevToolsUtils.js:109:14 Line: 1262, column: 0"

/**

* Report that |who| threw an exception, |exception|.
*/

exports.reportException = function reportException(who, exception) {

 const msg = `${who} threw an exception: ${exports.safeErrorString(exception)}`;
 dump(msg + "\n");
 if (typeof console !== "undefined" && console && console.error) {
-->   console.error(msg);
 }

};

Does anyone have a clue what is going on here and can help clarify things for me please?
