I use Firefox as my main browser on my Windows 10 Laptop. It has McAfee Web Advisor installed.

About a week ago, I discovered that I could no longer login to my BT Yahoo Email Account using Firefox while McAfee Web Advisor was enabled. They'd worked perfectly together until then.

Now, if I'm using Firefox, I have to disable McAfee Web Advisor when I want to look at my Emails.

BUT if I use one of the other browsers I have installed, I don't have to do this. My other three browsers, BT Yahoo Email and McAfee Web Advisor continue to work perfectly together.

Has anyone come across this problem and if so, is there a fix you could suggest, please?

hello, I am a total unexperienced with this whole digital chaos.

Let me start beginning, i changed a few months ago from chrome to edge, at least i tried, only a few minutes said microsoft and everthing would be the same but in this special browser for Windows 10 special. I started at 16.00, only 5 minutes microsoft said, and ended at 00.4 in the morning later. From about 60 passwords i got back 5, from porn sites. Any way there was more damage made then in 5 minutes away from edge. Then you have to call a so called it student company hoe comes at your home now they also use teamviewer. And after the kid has to find out all kinds of trouble so after 3 hours i was back with chrome and 100 euros gone. I have two questions. In windows you can choose your browser, and when i want firefox i se that there are 2 firefox . And they are different, i think one has to go, cause my vpn doesnt works aigaints one and one says you dont use firefox as default brser and one of the 2 says the opposit. I am sure that one of the two has to go or am i paranoid thanks to the bullshit that 70% of the common people also got after these every time chanching invite the most stupid and useless nonses. Well i am sure that you will have no idea what i mean cause thats another bad change, you talk with machines, nobody can help me with instalating gpwin , pgp., And also, i have so many questions that it would take 1 week to explain by writing. Why cant we talk with people anymore, exccept apple i heard. i am thinkgen to by my next lap there, i have an i pad that never has problems and this shit from microsoft en these these fuckbook ang google is greatest monster. Have a nice day and i see if i ever get answer. that would be a wonder. Dont give me links with days studiying cause i dont want to learn, i am totaly not intersted in it, but i am forced by society.

First of all, your organization needs to stop hiding behind layers and layers of insulation from reality. Pinholes make p.poor peepholes. You have no idea the rage such stupidity can generate in such a mild guy as I (I actually am, but I have limited tolerance with stupidity). That means others will be even less pleased and you'll miss seeing the large astronomical body heading for your head. First, let me clue you in that e-mails sent via FF. aren't as wide on the right as e-mails sent via M.S. It took years for me to realize that that was the reason why certain e-mails to the VA weren't working! In all other matters I was happily using ver. 75 (?) for many, many years. Then, through a less than clear process, I ended up with version 76! Trying to ape the "cool" crowd is usually NOT a good idea! Stick with building an easy to use and solidly better product that works. Forego the flim-flam "cool" crap of your competitor and people will beat a highway to your door! Which brings me back to v. 76..... After considerable effort it finally was beginning to show some promise, but trying to make adjustments, starting with the tiny, tiny print was becoming an exercise in frustration, fury and futility! Who in your organization is stupid enough to think this is OK? I suggest you collect their belongings immediately and escort them to the door! I was trying to customize that work (v. 76) in progress, but ........ I give up! There's no useful assistance info either, not even something a masochist would grudgingly use! I'd be happy to be able to return/revert to v. 75. Just show me the way. I can even learn to live with the level of 'ads' in e-mails that v. 75 has. This was the original poison in the well, and they weren't winning. So, it's up to you. I detested µSoft from their beginnings in chicanery and still do, but if I have to deal with that cesspool, I'll just get a bigger nasal clip and do the best I can.

I've been using Firefox on Windows for a very long time. When I switched over to Ubuntu, I kept using Firefox as my main browser. When I'm on Ubuntu and I try to switch tabs with Ctrl+tab, sometimes the the Firefox window closes and I don't get to access the previous session in Restore previous session in the hamburger menu or in history. Is this a Ubuntu problem or am I clicking on something I don't understand?

Like any privacy-conscious person, I do not want websites gaining access to my clipboard. I thought I had taken the necessary precautions, by setting the following preferences:

dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled => FALSE

clipboard.plainTextOnly => TRUE

Today, however, while writing in an online text box, I hit Ctrl+V and was horrified to see a very personal image inserted into the text box! (The image just happened to be in the clipboard.)

What is going on here? How could this possibly happen? Can sites still access my clipboard?

Hello :-),

I am working on an data privacy tool on python3 over Selenium. One requirement is to track all outgoings connections/cookies over Firefox.

Please see the first attachment for my Firefox configuration. When I have a look at the network tab in Firefox there are still some forbitten connections (2nd picture). How can I allow all of them?

I am using a dedicated profile for that crawling.

Thx for your help.

In Firefox on YouTube, if I go full screen, one thing is that it doesn't create a new desktop like real Firefox full screen does, it just goes full screen on that desktop. The other thing is that when I am on dual monitors, and that full screen Firefox video is in focus, the menu bar on the other screen is not there.

Does anyone else have this issue?

I use Firefox for everything except full screen video (and sometimes for work) for this reason.

Missing device in synchonized device list to transfer tabs

I have two computers: one personal (HP), one from my work (MBP). I quit my job a few weeks back but still had my MBP in case they needed something. I continued to use it and I had to return it back yesterday.

I synchronized my tabs using Firefox Sync on the MBP and could see them well on my HP. I formatted the MBP and returned it, without disconnecting my Firefox account. I got back home and tried this morning to load on my HP the tabs I had on my MBP, but it is not listed anymore. (Surprisingly, some other device I didn't touch for 2 or 3 weeks is still listed, even though it's not connected.) I tried on another device to connect my Firefo account, thinking it would propose me to open a session have somewhere else, but the MBP session isn't listed there either.

I can't lose all the researches I made during the last few weeks :S I turned my side project into a full time job, I need them.

Is there any way to retrieve somehow the tabs I had open on the MBP? Is there a way to get from the Sync server any copy they have for my devices? Does Firefox writes to disk what it gets when listing the data of synchronized devices, so I could try to look into the deleted files on my disk?

Help or ideas much appreciated!

Hola me parece interesante la folosofía de Mozila y me gustaría ayudar traduciendo algunos artículos al español, pero no me queda claro los pasos a seguir. Traté de contactar a uno de los líderes de proyecto mas no sé porqué me redireccionó a otro lado. Por otra parte el vinculo para iniciarse en SUMO parecía estar roto. Sería de ayuda si me escriben directamente al correo o pudiera ponerse en contacto conmigo alguno de los lideres de proyectos a ver cómo puedo ayudar en el proceso.

My firefox homepage/topsites seems to update thumbnails with image of different top site at times. How can I refresh or tell it to regenerate? I've attached a screenshot showing how the wrong thumbnail is now being used for nytimes and cnn.

I've searched for help and come across a few old bugs but nothing that fixes issue. Ideally I'd like to click on the image and have it refresh thumbnail from the (correct) site.

Thanks
