How do I go into Gmail and edit/add/delete email addresses??? A couple months ago I read online how to do it since there is no icon or anything on the Gmail "Inbox" page any more to allow for additions/corrections. ONline I found a way to do that. I try now and the 'fix' that is offered online is to be sure you have downloaded the current Firefox version, which I just did. (65.0.2) Following online directions of clicking on Gmail in top left hand corner, nothing happens! Clicking on Gmail logo does nothing either! This should NOT be this different to make changes to people's email addresses/groups. I closed out of Firefox and reopened browser and that did nothing either.

Please help!

Thanks, dcseguin

when ever I switch from one user to another user, when I come back to the first user Firefox won't let me change Tabs or switch to other open pages. Which can only be solved by quitting Firefox. I can reproduce this behaviour every time. In some instances it is showing the beach ball and has to be 'Force quit'. I can't reproduce this it seems random.

I want to be able to sync only a single bookmark folder between home and work. I don't want or need most of the work bookmarks at home, and I don't want my home bookmarks at work. However, I do sometimes run across sites at one I would like to use at the other, and currently the only way I can find to do that is email the link to myself. It would be much easier if I could just have one shared folder I can sync between the two. Is there an extension that does this? I've seen a few bookmark extensions, but I can't find one that just syncs one folder.

I am trying to make a CORS get request to my server. My server is properly CORS enabled.

I am sending an additional header so preflighted option call is sent by browser.

This is working in Chrome but not in firefox. In firefox i can see the options call with 200 as return status code but the subsequent get call is not sent which is happening perfectly in Chrome. My server is also using certificate issued by Global CA like DigiCert . This CA is present in Firefox trust list.

In firefox i see these messages in console

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://serverurl. (Reason: CORS header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ does not match ‘https://tryit.w3schools.com, *’).[Learn More]

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://serverurl. (Reason: CORS request did not succeed).[Learn More] I am making XMLHttpRequest call to trigger the call.

I am not able to figure why the call is failing in firefox

Every time I start Firefox with a new profile, despite trying in several ways to make this not happen, Firefox automatically makes a series of requests to URL's and will retry them repeatedly when those requests fail.

``` GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 ... (and so on) ```

I am trying to make this not happen. I'm ideally looking for a setup where Firefox will make no requests at all without me explicitly telling it to but just eliminating the two requests above would be a great start!

Here's what I've tried so far:

1. Uncheck "Provide search suggestions" in `about:preferences#search`

2. I've followed these instructions --- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

2. Here are a combination of select settings from my `user.js` preferences file that I put in to place before opening Firefox in my attempts to stop this. Some of these may or may not be relevant but I'm including them so you have some idea what I've tried: ``` user_pref("app.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.tabs.crashReporting.sendReport", false); user_pref("browser.crashReports.unsubmittedCheck.enabled", false) user_pref("browser.search.update", false); user_pref("browser.search.suggest.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.systemAddon.update.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.downloads.remote.enabled", false); user_pref('browser.search.geoSpecificDefaults.url', ); user_pref('media.gmp-manager.url', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.updateURL', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.gethashURL', ) user_pref('browser.search.cohort', ); user_pref("services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.urlbar.suggest.searches", false); ``` Any ideas?

I tried all the support answers, about:config, autoplay default set to 0, 1, 2, set all the media autoplay options to prevent videos from autoplaying, to no avail. Nothing works! I love firefox but autoplay videos are very annoying. I hope you are able to provide a solution for me. I read it will be in options soon but I have little faith anything will work since I've tried every suggestion.

Firefox is my preferred browser for many years, but has become almost worthess because it is soooooooooooooooooo incredibly slow. I have tried every suggestion I've found online. Note to Mozilla: constant refrain of "Try opening in Safe Mode" grows old after the first 300,000 times, especially when it's no help. Web pages take forever to load, frequently hang. When I use Chrome, web pages open lickety split, from which I assume the problem is not my computer. I'm pretty desperate. Would love to solve this problem - along the rest of the North American continent - before abandoning FF/Quantum, because I like it so much otherwise. Thanks for reading.
