I get this error message on the same website every day. I click stop it, and the message disappears for 30 seconds then reappears over and over again. The message does not say this webpage; it says a webpage. Unchecking "always block all detected trackers" does not help.

I want to use my web cam on a certain website. I click on the little information button in the browser window and get sent to Permissions. I click the drop down for camera and get to the "Settings - Camera Permissions" page, where I cannot specify the website to grant permission for the cam to work on the site. I tried to upload a screen shot of that page, but it was unable to upload.

Dell XPS 13 Developer Ubuntu 18.04.1 Firefox Quantum 63.0.3

installed flashplugin-installer from repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) multiverse"

confirmed flashplugin-alternative.so is in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and is a link to /etc/alternatives/mozilla-flashplugin which is a link to /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so

There is nothing in ~/.mozilla/plugins

Flash does not show up in about:plugins and

https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

says flash is not installed (so it can't be enabled).


I also tried adobe-flashplugin from repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"

and it did not work either.

I need Flash. Can you help?

Regular page wont' come up. Ge the following instead:

"File not found

Firefox can’t find the file at jar:file:///C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/en-US/locale/branding/browserconfig.properties."

Have no idea why this suddenly can't be found. (Or, to be frank, what it means.)

Hello!

So, I was working on a new blog on which I'm using the Rubik font from Google fonts.

Everything was fine for several days, but today, after working for some time on it, the font just got messed up randomly (see attached image).

I added the font on a different, testing site and it shows messed up there as well, so it's not something website related.

Now, the shocking part is that it gets messed up only on Mozilla and only on the Mozilla browser that's on my Desktop PC.

I asked a friend to check it out and I also checked it out on my laptop, and the font is fine on other Mozilla browsers, as well as other browsers.

Other fonts from other websites are fine as well.

What troubleshooting I performed:

- Checked the font with Inspect Element, as it's shown here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/Edit_fonts and the font is set up correctly;

- Deleted the whole history since the beginning of time (cookies, cache, everything);

- Closed and opened Firefox again;

- Opened Mozilla in Safe Mode (hardware acceleration is disabled by default in safe mode);

- Restarted my PC;

- Uninstalled Mozilla as it shows here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer. Deleted the profile folder and everything.

- Installed a fresh copy again with no add-ons, no nothing.

Nothing worked. That font is still messed up on Mozilla, on this PC.

It doesn't make any sense, especially since it went nuts randomly without a particular reason.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem and how to fix it?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Running Firefox 63.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10 ver 1803, I click on "Restart to update Firefox" and get "Firefox is installing your updates and will start in a few moments." But when it does start, nothing has changed: I am still running 63.0.3 and it still says "Restart to update Firefox." I have been round this loop a half dozen times. What next?

Starting this morning, whenever I click on a link on www.nytimes.com, a pop-up appears that says "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved." and requires that I either click "Stay on Page" or "Leave Page". I have never seen this before and it only seems to happen on www.nytimes.com. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, how can I make it go away? Is there something that may have changed in Firefox Preferences with the most recent update? See attached screen shot.

I am using 63.0.3. All of a sudden, whenever I right-click on an image and select "Save image as," when the dialog box appears, the "Save as type" field is greyed out. This doesn't happen in Chrome, so it is not my computer.

Sometimes when browsing, Firefox will completely freeze, and stop responding to anything I do until I completely close it down and reopen. So far, I've observed it: - frequently while browsing tumblr (I don't have infinite scrolling turned on) - every time I try to open a film/show on Netflix from the homepage (but going there from my browsing history works) - sometimes when loading the YouTube comments section - occasionally when having multiple Firefox windows open - once or twice it's happened when simply closing a tab

So far, the only solution I've found is to start Firefox in safe mode, which is obviously not a long-term fix.

This is not a gripe about frequent updates, nor a case of being redirected to the "browser updated" page every time I start Firefox.

What is happening is that every time I open Firefox, I get a message from Windows asking for permission to let Firefox perform an update, then after I click "Yes" a window with a loading bar that says "Firefox is installing your updates, this may take a few moments..." or something similar to that comes up, and then the browser opens when it is done updating.

This happens literally every time I start Firefox, even if I close it and immediately start it again. This has been happening for several days now, and refreshing Firefox has not helped.

A while back I started having problems with tabs hanging in Firefox. This happens arbitrarily, in any site, without any user input. It may happen with tabs that have been on the background for a long while or with a brand new tab that I just opened. I'm attaching screenshots for a tab (that was) showing Facebook and one for a new tab without any site loaded. Whenever this happens, there will be a "WebContent" process at 100% CPU. The only solution is for me to kill that process.

I'm seeing this in two different computers, work and home. The usage pattern between these two is quite different, although I do have Firefox sync in both of them. I've tried deleting my profile (rm -rf ~/.mozilla/) but that hasn't helped. I've tried using safe mode and couldn't reproduce the error, but since these crashes happen about twice a day it's hard to say for sure. There are no crash reports in about:crashes.

Any tips to troubleshoot this problem?

When on the Windows 10 Light theme, I am able to use all 3 themes the come packed in with Firefox (Default, Dark and Light). However, when Windows 10 Dark theme is enabled, I am only able to use the Dark and Light Firefox themes, not Default which is the one I would like to be using. When Default is enabled it's just the Dark theme for some reason.

Hello!

I can't use the browser anymore. It crashes whenever I keep it open in background with only 1 tab or even when starting it. This happens since at least August 2017 last year. I have attached the reports to this below.

Thank you.

https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/d31cc0f2-844e-4698-846e-9569e0181129#tab-details - is the latest one, which happened when I have tried to open the browser for the first time today.

I have unchecked "Provide search suggestions", "Show search suggestions in address bar results", and "Show search suggestions ahead of browsing history in address bar results." Every time I start to type in the search bar (where the url goes), up pops multiple suggestions. I've tried changing the search engine (startpage, bing, duckduckgo) - makes no difference. I tried using address bar and add search bar configuration. Doesn't make a difference.

It's frustrating because when I type urls that I'm familiar with and hitting enter, it's entering the one that it's highlighted and 'finishing' my url. For example, something like ebay.com becomes ebay.com.au. So now I have to type ebay.com/ to stop it from finishing or suggesting something different.

Firefox is up to date. I clear my history every time I close Firefox.

Hello community,

I am new to Firefox, well the last time I used it was before Chrome was introduced so its been a very long time coming. Google Chrome has been having serious issues for me lately and I was getting no help in their community forums, so after a Month of zero help I decided to try the new FF Quantum 63. However, after setting it up and trying my favorite Google News website I instantly discovered the first FF issue. All the text on the left is messed up. I tried Opera, Vivaldi, Chrome, Edge and all of those work just fine with Google News, but Firefox is broken somehow. I am hopeful its just a simple button I can click somewhere, but then again I know better. Below is the screen grab of how Firefox renders the page.

OS: Windows 10 1809 Brand new 2018 AMD Ryzen 5 2600X system with 16GB of ram. The only addons are Zoom Page ME, Stylus and FVD Speed Dial so far but more will need to be added.

Any ideas on how to fix this rendering issue? Or is Quantum just so new that it is still suffering from teething pains and I need to be patient?
