68.0.1 running on Linux Mint fails to update Shockwave Flash. If I try to access web sites that use Flash, I get a message that Flash needs updating. In the 'Plugins' section of the ‘Add-Ons’ option on the Firefox menu, all are set to Auto-Update, but it lists Flash as needing updating. Clicking the 'Update Now' button to update takes me to Adobe's site. I choose the APT for Debian/Ubuntu (is this wrong?) and click 'Download Now'. I am asked which application to open the download in - only APTurl is listed, so click 'Open Link'. After a few seconds a message comes up "Package 'adobe-flashplugin' is already installed". The only option is to close it. Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?

Note: I am surprised to see that in the 'Plugins' section of the ‘Add-Ons’ option on the Firefox menu there is no option to uninstall Adobe Flash.

I see in the Firefox Help pages, in the ‘Managing Add-Ons’ section has this article: "Add-ons disabled or fail to install on Firefox" - but this says the problem is fixed in versions later than 66.

I am developing a wordpress website at http://stonest1.wwwaz1-ss22.a2hosted.com/. Everything worked until about an hour ago. When I use FF to open that URL, I get the error, The site is experiencing technical difficulties. If I open the URL in Chrome, the site appears as it should! What could have happened in FF to prevent it from working. I cleared the cache and closed FF then re-opened. Same problem.

I have been getting with a spam web page. It is getting through your security. It appears to be unique to Firefox because if I use IE, I don't get hit. I have a VPN that it doesn't get through either, but the VPN slows me down and blocks some of the things that I often do (at least for now - just installed it). The URL locks the screen and only Task Manager will shut down Firefox. I am running Windows 10 Pro (happens on Home, also), McAfee Multi-access Total Protection, and OpenDNS. Copy of screen attached.

Please advise. Thank you.

When I try to add a bookmark or a bookmark folder I see a dialogue box with no place for a bookmark or folder name, with the only option being "Cancel." "Add" is greyed out. I tried refreshing Firefox with no luck. The person posting this question is NOT particularly tech savvy; please keep that in mind when explaining solutions.

I can't find my Firefox bookmarks on new computer with Windows 10 they are not in IE either. I can find my "favorites" on the HD but I can't import unless I do them one at a time. I have tried all the options I could find but unless I missed something nothing is working. I thought Firefox bookmarks and other data was automatically saved to a cloud.

Hey,

So Firefox updated to 68, it created a new profile, that's fine, my old profiles were fine, but as soon as I sign in to my Firefox account and sync, they're not. I had to change a whole bunch of settings back to how I had them. I'm also trying to install the Dashlane Extension, but everytime I do, it keeps opening the new profile Firefox made, and I can't get in on the old ones. Do i now have to recreate all my old profiles?

l I downloaded echelonfit.com website. I clicked the login link to signup with a user and password, but nothing happens after entering the email account (my google email/gmail) and password, I click 'signup', but nothing happens to indicate the data has been received. I spoke with a contact person for their website and they suggested deleting my browsing history and clearing my cache. I did clear my browsing history, and I believe my cache, but not my cookies, but it has not made a difference. Help?

By default downloads 'active downloads can be 4, while the rest are queued..

However, Googe drive i can only have 4 downloads at a time not more..

This is not a server side issue, because i can use Google Chrome to have as many as i like... sometimes 6 or more, on my fast connection.

network.http.max-pesistent-connections-per-server is "6"

if this is suppose to increase active downloads, it doesn't work in Firefox 68.0.1

Is there another setting i can use?

I been using Firefox over many years, but never came across this issue before.

Something videos and GIF are glitches and can't see anything until I reboot the system. So to watch any videos I'm using Edge now.

I have reinstalled the Firefox and even my AMD Graphics card diver and even checked with different setting is the graphics control panel.

Please fix this bug. Thank you.
