When I log on to Zillow.com using Firefox I am unable to save photos from the listings. No matter what type of file I designate it will not save a copy of the image. Yet, when I follow the same procedure using Microsoft Edge, or Internet Explorer, I have no problem saving the images. Any ideas???

updated to the latest version of firefox 100%

now desktop and email url links opens firefox without add-ons or a generic version, and your custom placed top url links aren't there

opens a generic firefox without control , adstop etc etc

then we get blasted with advertising, this happened to me 2 to 3 weeks ago

tried putting a new url link to desktop while in correct version of firefox but still opens url in the generic version or without add-ons etc

when your in correct version the top tabs icons urls work correctly as well as the bookmarks as long as your in the correct version to begin with

this means you changed the behavior of firefox somehow to get us to back to annoying advertising that's the way i see it or it feels like

how do we resolve fire to open desktop links as before in the customized version and not the generic version

im always scared of updates in firefox that ruin the customized version that you have made with great care that your accustomed to

also this happened around the same time you made us try to get sync or an firefox account,

could this have anything to do with the above problem ??

While I'm using FF the Recently closed tabs and Recently closed windows lists (see under History) get populated, but after I restart they're empty. I turned on "Restore session" and it did restore my previous window, but even then the Recently closed tabs and windows were empty. I'm not aware of having changed anything except I cleared cache this morning after a problem with GMail. I'm assuming this isn't intended functionality?

Pausing the narrator in Reader View

Hi Firefox community!

   I really like using the narrator feature after having gotten it to use the Microsoft Eva Mobile voice, and would put it in the background as I do something else in another tab. Thing is, I can't listen to the narrator and focus on what I am doing at the same time, so I frequently want to pause it to digest what I heard. So far though, there's only a Stop button which is a problem at long paragraphs such as transcripts. 

Is there an extension or a setting that pauses the Narrator right to the words it was reading? (Also if this isn't the correct place to ask this do notify me) Thanks!

I've up-dated - I've disabled hardware acceleration - I've read the FAQ - I know this is a wide-spread problem for the browser. The only solution I can find is to dump Firefox and go back to Safari. I like Firefox and Mozilla in general, but can't stand buggy software with no solution in sight. Bye Firefox.

Updated to version 67.0.2 (64-bit) of Firefox. Cannot launch Firefox without being prompted to create a new profile.

I am using Firefox Sync. Today Firefox updated to version 67.0.2 (64-bit). As I began using it I noticed some strange behavior. The first thing I noticed was that I couldn't add any additional tabs past 4 tabs (the number is irrelevant, since the number changes). Thinking that the application was frozen, I closed Firefox. Upon relaunch I get this message:

"Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox."

I then have to either Exit or Create New Profile. I've done this several times and have had to re-do this task over and over today. I suspect that my Firefox Sync profile is corrupt. I've tried resetting Firefox, reinstalling, etc.

In about:profiles I now have several profiles in existence. One for each time I've reset using the Create New Profile button.

Does anyone have any advice on how to continue?

I just updated to FF 67.0.2 and now whenever I open FireFox, it opens a huge window that extends past my screens, making it difficult to make smaller and move so that I can reach the title bar. I am running Windows 10 and using dual screens (both at native resolution). This is ONLY happening since the upgrade an hour ago.

I have a valuable history of browsing in Safari that I would like to bring over to Firefox. The only solution I have been able to find after an hour of searching is this product; iMazing. It appears to do just what I need, by exporting the Safari Browsing History from the database to HTML which it says can then be Imported into Firefox. Sounds good, but I would prefer to not have to buy a 3rd party product. Any clues? Thank you.
