EVERY TIME I open Firefox I immediately get an ad asking me to download MS Edge. This occurs even when Edge is not open. 1. I have Edge downloaded but it is not my default browser – which is Firefox. 2. This ad appears even when Edge is not open. 3. I have turned off all the suggested fixes in the “Settings/Options” for both Firefox and Edge but without success. Is there any way to block these irritating pop-ups?

Here is a Jsfiddle URL URL which points to Twitter Tweet Button JS / HTML code which I am attempting to embed into a website.


When I load the above in Google Chrome 84 the Tweet Button appears and I can share out the URL of the web page in which the Tweet button is embedded, with no unexpected results.

When I try to do the same with Mozilla Firefox 79.0, in Private Mode, and disabling uBlock extension, the Tweet button does NOT appear, only the "Tweet" text. When I click on the Tweet text, I can not share out the URL as expected.

I am wondering what specifically in Mozilla Firefox could be introducing the problem.

I may have changed a setting ... Normally when I need to sign back in to my yahoo/att email account I can select "stay signed in for 2 weeks" and that works. But as of today, even though I select the 2 week option, when I leave my email page, I have to sign back in upon returning. Every time..... The "stay signed in" option is currently working on Google Chrome and other browsers, but I'd prefer to continue with Firefox. Thank you

Hello When visiting Gumtree marketplace, none of the pictures for the adds display. I have tried a Firefox refresh, and the photos appear but disappear then disappear again if a new Firefox tab is opened or a new search within Gumtree is performed. The Firefox refresh does not appear permanent. I have cleared cache and cookies and this has had no effect. The Gumtree photos display if I revert to using a different browser. How can I refresh Firefox and keep the settings permanent? This problem has only manifested itself in the last two days.

Hello. When I open a new tab in Firefox, there are top sites that I cannot remove. I have set for there to be 4 rows of top sites, but Amazon is not only not pinned, but when I try to dismiss it, nothing happens. I have tried clearing my history, and editing and replacing the link with another site only creates another Amazon top site square. Any help would be much appreciated as it is becoming a pet peeve! XD

Evert time I open an enclosure or a link in an e-mail, Foxfire automatically sends it to a download rather than letting me view it. This is extremely annoying. I understand that this procedure may be necessary for e-mails from folks I don't know, and I could opt out for this option. But I should be able to make that determination and particularly with e-mail from people I know. i used to get a notice that asked me if I wanted to download the item, but that never happens any more. How can I fix this to operate as it used to? Thanks for the help. Bill

I was recently playing with "Themes" by adding and deleting some. Now, when Firefox starts, the theme "Light" is always used as the default. When I look at the themes page, my preferred one is shown as"enabled" and "Light" is shown as "disabled", but it is Light that is actually displayed in the banner display. If I disable, then enable my preferred one, it is then the one displayed. How can I stop "Light" from being the actual default? Firefox does not allow me to delete the Light theme.

When I try to checkout on a site using Shopify, the credit card fields are unusable. The form fields turn into animations, almost like an animated GIF and will not stop. It is difficult to describe what is going on. Here's what it looks like:https://i.imgur.com/mTJfDeD.mp4. I don't know how else to illustrate the issue. This has been going on for the past several versions of Firefox. I'm currently using 79.0b3 (64-bit) on a Mac.
