Just wondering if anyone else is having the same issues, every so often, when I open a new tab and enter a website name and hit enter the tab closes and returns me to the main tab that I had open. It never happens twice in a row and is often unpredictable when it happens. Unsure if it is a bug or just some setting that might be causing it? I am using an up-to-date browser in a windows 10 environment. Thanks for any comments or suggestions.

Hi All,

Just recently, I've gotten a slew of alerts from Lockwise referencing a vulnerable password. I believe all of these are based on what's found at haveibeenpwned.com, but when I check the password against that site, it doesn't come up as found. Is this a false positive? I'm running FF 76.0.1 (64-bit).

Hi everyone! Since my update of Firefox (Ver. 76.0) on May 6, my Netflix streaming doesn't work any more. I use the Firefox Browser Ver. 76 on elementary Linux (Ubuntu 18.04). Until May 5 everything worked fine. I changed my browser to "Chrome" now, for watching Netflix. With Chrome everything works fine. Maybe someone can tell me, why Firefox 76 refuses streaming netflix.

Thanks for a helpful answer. C. Wolfgang

When I use Zoom (the meetings app) through Firefox, the Breakout Rooms facility is non-existent. The tool is not available. Yet it IS there when I use Zoom for meetings via Google Chrome browser. How come I can't use it via Firefox? Or how DO I access it?

Hi there. I have Firefox on Mac, iPad and my Android phone. I've just set up a Raspberry Pi streamer which I access with a saved favourite, the address is http://xxxxxxxx.local I can get to it with no problem from my Mac and iPad but not at all from my phone. I've tried typing it in manually, resetting the phone... when I tap on the address bar it usually reveals the address as http://www.xxxxxxx.local/ - so it's inserted the www, which maybe contributing to this but I can't seem to stop it doing that.

Any suggestions gratefully received!

Здравствуйте. Я вот недавно с Яндекс Браузера решил перейти на ваш браузер и столкнулся с проблемой. Я вот читаю мангу часто и меня мягко говоря раздражает что когда я переключаюсь на следующую страницу то сайт обновляется. На Яндекс Браузер сайт не обновляется а картинки прогружаются. Все дополнения попробовал отключить и все равно. На FireFox Preview, FireFox Focus такая же проблема. Можете помочь? https://youtu.be/Uq62cnX5eps - видео с примером

Once I changed the default path to the mail foders to a customized path on my NAS. That worked out fine. Now I rescheduled some driveletter assignments to several folders on my NAS. When starting Thunderbird I discovered there was no more mail and I found out I needed to re-assign the mappings to the 'new' folder location of all my accounts. Never mind, after all it was just changing the driveletter, because I didn't change the path itself. It seems to work fine, but later I discovered all sub folders of my main account are gone. When I looked it up with the Explorer I could find only 3 subfolders (.sbd), but not the other ones. The 3 that were there weren't showing up in Thunderbird.

  • Is there anybody who knows something about retrieving the 'lost' subfolders?
  • Or maybe what has happened here?
  • Why can't I see the apparantly existing 3 folders?
  • Any chance on retrieving the lost ones?

If you need this info: Thunderbird 68.8.0 (32-bit) on Windows 10 Pro version 1903.

Thanks for any information on this problem.

Hi, I don't want videos and sounds to start playing automatically on my Android phone when I open any webpages. I enabled the Firefox parameter to block videos from playing, but it doesn't work.

More, using our phones anywhere can cause medias playback to be annoying for users and/or people around. Thanks

As the Title suggests.

My Add-Ons are all removed from my Toolbar and stop functioning whenever I set my History settings to "Never Remember History."

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the Add-On's, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox. But none of this works.

I want to be able to use my Add-On's AND have Firefox not remember my history. It used to work before, but now it just won't let me.

Any suggestions?

Guten Tag Zusammen,

ich habe vor einiger Zeit einen bs.to Crawler erstellt, der soweit auch ganz gut funktioniert hat. Nach einem Firefox Update triggert nun aber das Google Recaptcha nicht mehr. Mein Python Script drückt nur den Button (siehe Bild): https://www.file-upload.net/download-14 ... .PNG.html

Auch wenn ich manuell versuche, den Button zu drücken passiert nichts. Mit Google Chrome ist es das selbe. Wenn ich allerdings den normalen Firefox benutze, gehts.

Wenn man einen Blick in die Netzwerkanalyse riskiert, merkt man, dass dort auch nur ein Bild geladen wird (siehe Bild 2): https://www.file-upload.net/download-14 ... .PNG.html . Normalerweise sieht die Netzwerkanalyse so aus: https://www.file-upload.net/download-14 ... .PNG.html

Sprich, ich denke das ein click event nicht gestartet wird. Wenn ich es allerdings manuell per JavaScript versuche, komme ich auch nicht weiter. Ältere Firefox Versionen bzw. Geckodriver hab ich auch schon versucht, jedoch ohne Erfolg. Aber auch wenns da gehen würde, wäre das ja keine wirkliche Lösung. Hat jemand von euch eine Idee?

Vielen Dank schonmal!

I have been using Thunderbird with my own domain email for sometime which is via Godaddy and office 365..now this week it stops working. Keeps asking me to enter my password. I can sign into the web based mail with office 365 but same password does not work with Thunderbird. I have checked the incoming and outgoing settings and they are the same as they have been in the past. But to be safe I doubled checked with the IMAP settings provided by office 365 and they are correct. Tried to change it to POP to see if that would work..still no go. I made sure IMAP and POP is enabled in office 365 and also that it is enabled under my administration for this email address. Godaddy told me Thunderbird does not support IMAP and I had to use different client. I tried two other email clients just to be safe and I get the same problem. Godaddy basically tells me to go pound sand and use outlook or web based. I don't really want to pay godaddy $49.99 and switch to outlook for mail. Anyone have any other ideas of what could be the problem ? Adding the screen shot of the settings from office 365.

I use the latest version of Firefox. I have multiple add-in's. Google is the search engine used. Firefox has 98 stored passwords. However, Gmail does not work at all. The main screen icon to it, will not even copy the path to the top task bar. The same is now happening for mu university log-in to Outlook. What can I do? I am forced to use Chrome and I hate all Google/Microshit etc programs. What with all the add-on's (dwhelper) doesnt seem to much good now, Firefox Focus etc etc is there an Idiots Guide to using. BTW, Ive been using computers since the 80's when I had to write all my own routines myself on the 'green screens' long before windows ever existed!
