The question is simple. I knew there is an update for the users with "studies" enabled. But where is the manual update for the users with "studies" disabled? I have checked the installer download page, and Help -> About. No any update for this. No any instruction for users with "studies" disabled.

Firefox storing cookies and site data even in private mode. How do I stop this?

After the latest update Firefox stores cookies and site data even in always private and the content blocking set to custom with everything set it the highest settings. Example i can check my email at outlook com then sign out click forget, then close the browser. then open it and it loads my email account without signing in. The only way it can do that is, the browser is storing cookies and site data. the only way to prevent it from doing this is to do everything i described then open the privacy settings and clear cookies, and site data and clear history, two times. Firefox like this is the most unsecured browser. it was a lot better before all these changes. It was a good idea, but it's caused a lot of troubles with security issues for me.

If I open a website with Firefox then close browser and go to open another site on my desktop, Firefox says " Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window". If I hit the close tab, the new site opens. I cannot find any other instances of Firefox running when it says this. Other browsers, Chrome etc. do not exhibit this behaviour. Any ideas ?

When I have 2 or more tabs open and try to go back and forth the tabs web pages close down and have to download the site info. Why don't the sites info stay up in the tab so I can go back and forth without having to wait each time I go back to a tab site. This makes researching very painful.

Is it possible to change the size of the "Flexible Space" when "CustomizingFirefox".

I dragged it to the space just left of the address bar and would like to make the space between the two icons (the home button and back button) a bit smaller.

After downloading the latest FF version, I attempt to install, but system dialog tells me that I need to close existing FF process before installing. I've been using Google Chrome. I did use FF about six months ago, but not since.

Ran across a help guide describing process of creating a new profile http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3025219. I can now ONLY access the FF browser by searching for and running from system bar "firefox.exe -p".

Running Windows 7 64-bit at present.

New system icon for program in menu doesn't permit me to run normally, nor does running as administrator. Would appreciate some help. FYI is a work computer, so I don't want to do anything extreme, as it might cause me to lose data.

Ich möchte bei meinem neuen "Speedport Smart" die Werkseinstellungen ändern unter http://speedport.ip Leider erscheint die Warnung: "speedport.ip verwendet ein ungültiges Sicherheitszertifikat. Dem Zertifikat wird nicht vertraut, weil es vom Aussteller selbst signiert wurde. Fehlercode: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT Was soll ich machen? Danke für jeden Rat.

I like to change the router codes of my newly installed Speed Port from the German Telekom company at the site: "http://speedport.ip" Unfortunately the certificate of the product is not trusted by Firefox with the following error message: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT could I risk to ignore it?

Thank you for your advice and help

A few months ago Firefox updated and autoplay settings were changed around. It took awhile of searching, but certain things in about:config had to be disabled to make it so videos didn't autoplay. After the latest update, videos are auto-playing again.

1. My settings did not revert, they are still the same. 2. The in-menu setting of disallowing sound does nothing, videos are autoplaying with sound on multiple websites.

Does anybody have a fix? This is getting ridiculous how much this keeps changing. I do not want videos, muted or otherwise, to ever autoplay in my browser. Can anyone help me with the autoplay settings? It seems like there are a bunch more in about:config now and I don't know what any of them do.

I updated firefox and i am guessing the settings defaulted IDK... but when i try to print labels from etsy or any selling plantform they do not open up in a new tab. instead, they open on the same page so I have to always use the "Go Back Page" button which is annoying. Previously I was just able to purchase the label and it would either download to my desktop or open in a new tab. But that doesnt happen anymore. Someone please help.

Thanks in advance

How do I open PHP documents locally?

I'm trying to mirror a website, and firefox won't open (local) PHP files, even though they're identical to html files, only with a different suffix. It keeps asking me whether I want to "Save As..." or "Open with". When I try to open them with Firefox, I get the same dialog box...

Is there a way to get Firefox to recognize that it can open PHP files? Or at least treat them as html files? I went through the General Preferences, and even tried to change the default program to Firefox (And even tried "automatically" -- what a mistake!!), and kept getting the same dialog box. checking the code in my text editor showed that it was a simple html document. I would rather not have to go through all my files and change the suffix of every document from "php" to "html". I would think there's a better way. Is there a viewer plugin? or would it just be a fix in General Preferences -> Applications? On my Mac, it would show the document "type" beside the content type, ie. html/text.

(Ubuntu 18.04, Firefox 66.0.2)
