I am unable to log in to ANY page requiring my password when using Firefox. Chrome works fine for me. I don't want to reset passwords as I just went thru and did those as a regular update. What has happened to Firefox that it won't let me use any of my sites I need to log in to?

Having posted on the forum before, some of you know me and might know that I'm visually handicapped. Well I just moved over to Windows 10 this week and have been setting up my browser. Some of you know I like to "email links" to myself in others. Setting everything back up has been a chore but not overly difficult. There are some new quirks with Windows 10. That said, II was organizing the Overflow menu like I had it before, however, the first time I used the "email link' function was a little odd. At least at the time, it wasn't linked to the account I normally used, and I had to go through a set up process, that as you can see, defaulted this Mail program that is linked Microsoft (doesn't surprise me) and honestly, if I send using that program, and I sent things to two Gmail accounts as well as my personal IIP account, and I never get them. I could probably call Microsoft and they might rfix it, but it is Not the email acocunt I want to use to "email links" so I would like to disassociated that function with the Microsoft email and change the path to the email account that I normally use and that people are more familiar with. Is there anyway of doing this short of uninstalling Firefox and do a clean install again? Thank you.

How to view HTML DOM property when selecting elements in Inspector?

Hi When I open Inspector from Firefox Developer Tools and select an HTML node, inspector shows numerous CSS related items for that node (like Rules, Layout, Computed, etc), but it does not show basic HTML DOM properties. In particular, I need to see innerText property for the currently selected node (and then walk through HTML tree watching innerText for every node). I found that I can do Right Click, Show DOM properties and than it prints all properties to the Web Console window, but this is not convenient: I have to repeat this Right Click thing for every element and search for innerText every time. This will take forever. So, question: is it possible to somehow show innerText for the current node automatically (like those CSS items are shown)? Thank you

I've been using Firefox since few weeks ago and I really like this browser except one thing. My first language is Korean but I wanted to use Firefox in English so I changed the first language to English and Korean to the alternate language. Now, when I type something in English, some words will be automatically change into Korean even if it is a real English word and makes no sence in Korean.

For exemple,

When I type "digital" and press the spacebar, it changes to "아햣미" which means nothing but typed in the same way on my keyboard layout. Also, I cannot type "artificial" too. I thought this is because of the spell checking so I turend it off but it is still not fixed.

Hello There,

I have been trying to figure out why videos that are embedded on certain sites do not show up on Firefox however they show up in Chrome?

I've gone through everything listed here:

and

A few key notes, even when in safe mode, the video problem still persists. But only on specific websites (squarespace sites). I can see videos through websites like Zoom, Shaw Bluewave, youtube, etc etc. But for some reason on this one site I can't get videos to display to play. Yet when I go to Chrome it's there and fine. So it's an issue with Firefox. I'm not sure how to fix it at this point.

I've unchecked Use recommended performance settings. I've switched the default theme I've disabled extensions (which fixed another issue of not displaying images) I've refreshed Firefox I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox I've checked all my graphics drives (they're all there and working)

At this point I'm not sure what to do. Can you please let me know if you have any recommendations?

Cheers Chantal

Hi

Is it possible to set placeholders for the Top Sites that I can define the links myself rather than pulling them from the most visited sites I've visited?

I want to hold 8 Top Links on my New Tab page but I want them to be initially blank in other words they don't go anywhere I till I click edit button.

Is this possible? Is there a way of separating the most visited sites from Top Sites buttons? Is there a way to blank all of the Top Site buttons without clearing my entire browser history?

Many thanks
