I am trying to stream from a French website (M6) for which I have an account. Specifically https://www.6play.fr/kaamelott-p_888/la-vie-est-belle-c_11364952 I get as far as locating the programme (see link above) I want to see but then I receive "An AdBlocker is preventing access - please close it etc...." I tried creating a new profile in Firefox with the same result. I do not have this problem with other sites and am not aware of having set up a Blocker anyway. (That isn't say I haven't by accident). Where do I look please? I am using 83.0 (64-bit). On my machine I also have Edge and Chrome because some sites seem to prefer these. In fact Edge is the default browser because (guess what) some Win10 functions work better with it. The same message comes up using these browsers so I am thinking it might be a Win10 setting but I cannot spot any setting that is relevant. Any guidance you can give greatly appreciated.

Strangest quirk happened recently. When I scroll down a Fox News article to the reader's comments, half of the comments are embedded with question marks etc. that make them unreadable. Not the end of the world but a little bothersome. When I use Microsoft Edge or Explorer this problem does not occur so it must be the Firefox browser. I am running the most recent #83 Firefox browser. Thanks for any help.

Suddenly i am facing issue with my add-ons tabs when i tries to open it from the settings bar on the top left side or even from the internal options it just shows a blank white page with {about:blank} in the URL bar and {about:addons} in the tab description.

Also that happened when my google search runs very wider as when typing any search in google the URL bar shows {https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=.....} and that is not what i face in the other browsers.

The + for adding a new tab is located at the upper right hand corner of my Firefox screen. Is there a way to have it show up next to the last tab that was opened? My Firefox at home has the + next to the last new tab. My Firefox at work has it on the upper right hand corner. The attached file shows what I am talking about with the + circled in red and the yellow arrow showing where I would like it to be if this is possible. Thanks.

So I've recently updated to v83 and find out that that annoying address bar is back. I don't really want to use Chrome.css because I'm not good at programming or anything like that and I am afraid I might break my browser.

I have the solutions for v77 on my about:config and tried toggling them true/false and restarting my computer but I think Firefox "fixed" those workarounds.

Anybody have any new suggestions? Or am I stuck with this (I wouldn't mind it so much but it goes to it automatically when I open a new tab and that annoys me. I'm happy the history part of the workaround is still working cause I do NOT want anyone knowing my history. That's my business not theirs).

Hello, I'm a person who has recently started using the calls on discord more frequently, which means that we like to screenshare the content we're browsing and we want to do that without pressure. It is completely fine when it comes to people I know IRL, they know my name, they know my last name, they know my email, I'm not worried when it comes to them, but, if I'm sharing Firefox, I always have to remember that I should stop sharing before clicking those three lines for the right side menu, before I accidentally show my email, which contains my real name.

Is there any option to protect me? To hide the email, or the entire option, or just for it to say something like "My account"?

If the feature does exist, please let me know! And if it doesn't, I'd like to have it for a future update.

Thanks in advance.

How can I get my settings and bookmarks from a cloned image of my old HDD. This is pretty annoying and making me think about leaving Mozilla. I've done what a support page advised and copied my data from one 'profile folder' (from the image) to another (internal drive). Not helping and displaying a 'The bookmarks and settings will not function properly' error message. I did not unfortunately create a proper backup prior to transferring drives so can't restore that way, assumed that things would more or less be a seamless sync through my Firefox account.

Would appreciate help here thanks.

Hello! I need help on a very strange problem I had recently with my Firefox. I have Firefox 83.0 64-bit installed on my Windows 7 Home Basic desktop PC. Some time after maybe version 81 and above, I noticed that my Firefox randomly closes and reopens without showing any error messages. I noticed that the most consistent time this phenomenon happens is when I turn on my PC and start Firefox, it almost always closes and reopens, sometimes even more than once. It acts like the browser crashed, but the weird thing is it doesn't show any error message saying that the browser crashed. Once I opened Firefox at least once after I turn on my PC, even if I manually closed it and reopen it later, it will not crash on Firefox startup, it will probably only crash again after I restarted my PC and open Firefox. Also rarely, Firefox randomly closes and reopens whenever I browser whatever website with no reason whatsoever, but this only happens 3 out of 10 times.

I opened Troubleshooting Information to look for clues on what might be causing this, and I noticed "Launcher Process" is "Disabled due to failure". I am not sure what that means though, but I have a feeling this might be related somehow?

If anyone has any idea on what's going on, please help me. Thanks!

Hello: FF dev build 83.0b5 64bit, w10p. A new odd issue to me. Using ActBlue (political PAC) I sometimes use my regular credit card to make small political contribution. As of 28oct20, this FF stops completing the transaction. I hit the "donate" button, & nothing happens. I have seen a "processing" type msg from the vendor us. promptly - but again, the current page just sits there, the "processing"action & pg don't happen. On 28th eve, I checked my bank acct to see if somehow the donation had been made (I would see the deduction taken), and no, it hadn't. No prior nightly build type update had shown this behavior. I have no other FF on this w10 (no stable, nada anything else for FF). I have made no changes to extensions, plugins or otherwise. I had to go to stable chrome to complete the donation, and chrome did it right the 1st time. So, this is just an FYI, I don't know where else to post nor may I have the rights to post elsewhere. Tx.

Hello, is this the standard behavior for downloading the FF by using some different web browsers? I am talking still about the same version of 64bit FF for Win10 offline installer US but downloading this in different web browsers... The (final) downloaded file has exactly the same size of file but "slightly" different content - this is happening only when downloading FF. If I download different browser in various browsers then the size and content is exactly the same - but not in case of FF. Is it OK (some adjustemnt..) please or could it be virus? Thank you in advance for your respond. Jiri
