As an example, I search kijiji for kid's bicycles. It shows me the various ads but the box where the photo should be is empty. This happens with similar search results as well - words but no pictures. Have been using Firefox for many years. Why is this happening now. Using iMac with Catalina latest version.

Asked by Zombateen 6 days ago

I have added photos to my top sites on Firefox, but everytime I close my browser the images go away and cannot be added again unless I reset Firefox. (The images for the default top sites are still available though.) How do I fix this?

I don't want to have to reconfigure my settings every time the pictures are gone. It seems silly but it just looks wrong to me and I like seeing the pictures so that I know at a glance which top site is which. How can I fix this problem of my browser not displaying the images in the top sites correctly after closing the browser? Thank you!

I use Firefox for Mac ver. 79.0 and up until now when I logged on to htpps:www.michiganlottery.com and enabled location it always worked until now. I read an article that said Mozilla was sued for the code used for location and that Mozilla will be creating their own location services soon and giving users like myself something like a PIN number that is good for say 10,000 uses. Is that true and is the reason my location when enabled doesn't work anymore? Could you email me the procedure to enable if I missed something to: compute38209@aol.com Thank you.

I switched from Safari to Firefox (57.0.4) on my iMac (El Capitan) and noticed that I cannot add an event to my Google Calendar. Before, I was able to do so by clicking on a date. I tried both double-clicking and right-clicking but nothing happens. Also, clicking on the "+" sign which says "Create" does not work. The three-bar menu on the left corner does not work as well.

Prior to installing Catalina all pages would automatically open in full screen view, including my home page on start up. Since installing Catalina this no longer happens. Every time I open Firefox, I now have to go to the menu and manually select full screen view. Once I do this, all new pages then open in full screen view for the remainder of that session, but once I finish each session and close down Firefox, the same thing occurs next time I open it and commence a new session. In other words, there no longer seems to be a setting in Preferences to make this change permanent and avoid the need to have to manually select full screen view at the beginning of every new session.

I have been a Little Snitch user for years. Having seen all the bulls**t that apps and website try to connect to behind the scenes I couldnt possibly live without it.

Since the most recent update Firefox has broken how Snitch should, and used to, work. Instead of alerts displaying said website trying to connect to said web server/service, I get only an IP address. This requires a click on the more info button to see what the reverse IP look up is. Occasionally this is blank. Either way its a cumbersome way to browse the web. Especially when it used to work, and continues to work in other browsers.

Anyone else get this behaviour? Anyone have an idea how to fix/reverse it?

Cheers Adam

In Network settings, I have "Use system proxy settings" but when I change these (after connecting to a VPN), firefox does not pick up the change and I have to manually go to Network changes and switch to a different option and back for FF to pick up the new system proxy settings. Chrome picks up the changes automatically.

Is this a bug? Is there any faster way to achieve this? (For instance some addon that does this with a single click?)

Thank you!

I have problems with multiple sites that claim that third-party cookies are blocked and do not work even though though the Enhanced Tracking Protection is disabled for the site (the shield icon is grey and striked-through). In particular it is teams.microsoft.com and Instapaper (their saving bookmarklet sends me always to a site reading "enable unrestricted third-party cookie access for www.instapaper.com" - though this might be a different issue than Teams).

I have read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enhanced-tracking-protection-firefox-desktop?redirectslug=enable-and-disable-cookies-website-preferences&redirectlocale=en-US#w_how-to-tell-when-firefox-is-protecting-you and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-say-cookies-are-blocked-unblock-them (trying even to "forget" the teams website; not doing the full wipe out of everything).

How to troubleshoot / fix this? I am a technical person so I can dig into it if just somebody points me in the right direction...

Thank you!

Okay, so, quick question - I just got a new computer and installed the entire OS (MacOS) directly from my physical backup on . However, Firefox is working quite poorly. It's not loading sites properly, e.g. Facebook, and it won't load pictures on a Danish sales platform - and quite a few other places - most importantly it won't load Tinder profiles to swipe in desktop version. Damn it all to hell!

Also, several of the tabs have a weird, white line under them, and it started blinking with this weird red line in the very top of the browser.

However, if I were to reinstall Firefox altogether, would that delete all my open tabs (of which I have a couple of hundreds)? As per advice from a few geeks, I cleared my entire history to see if it made a difference - alas, the problems continued and multiplied.

If reinstalling and/or refreshing the browser will delete all my tabs - what are my options?

I have a basic html index page being served by Ubuntu/Apache at `https://localhost/test.html`. I have `browser.enabled.ssb` set to `true` in about config.

When I open a regular browser window (Firefox 78.0.2) I can navigate to, and load `https://localhost/test.html` no problem but when I run `firefox --profile /home/ubuntu/.mozilla/firefox/a5pwja44.default-release --ssb https://localhost/test.html` I get a connection error. (This is the same profile I'm using when I open a new browser window).

Anybody know why this doesn't work or how to fix?
