After Firefox updated, I can no longer access www.apple.com. This is the error I get now:

Blocked by X-Frame-Options Policy

An error occurred during a connection to idmsa.apple.com.

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this context because the page has an X-Frame-Options policy that disallows it.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank You.

Hi Team,

As a concern,we want to enquire that since our company has its own product which uses Flash technology but its been known now that firefox will not suppport adobe flash player after 2020. So if we save and continue to use an oder version of firefox(with autoupdate off),will it allow to continue usage of Adobe Flash Player after 2020? Please confirm the same or any other workaround so that adobe flash player can be used within firefox after 2020 as well.

Thanks

I used to use Theme & Font Size Changer and was able to change the fonts to large and bold so I could read them. Now it doesn't work because of Firefox "upgrades". There really should be an easier way to change fonts, both sizes and colors, because not everyone is 20 years old with great eyesight. Is there a fairly easy way to do this? I'll even take a not-so-easy way if it works.

BTW, I've used "Firefox Colors" and it does make it a bit easier, but I really need to be able to increase the size of the text AND bold it.

I can easily find a bookmark by searching in the Library "All bookmarks" window. However, I cannot figure out how to see folder that contains that bookmark. In Safari there an optional column for folder and you can then right-click and get an option to open the folder.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox?

According to various help articles, I should be able to export my logins and passwords using the Settings- logins and passwords and then click on the three dots in the upper right. That should display a menu with an option to export. In my case, when I click on the three dots I get only these options: Preferences, Help, Lockwise for Android, Lockwise for iPhone/iPad. There is no option to export anywhere on the page. How can I backup and logins so that I can load them on my new computer? As above, Firefox version is 72.0.2 and I am using Linux Mint 19.3.

I'd like to update my mac's firefox, but not to the latest version. I know about the directory of releases, but I can't seem to find advice on what to do once I download the file. I don't want to create a separate profile, or risk messing up the profile/settings I have currently. So, any thoughts? Thank you in advance for the help.

Saving Web pages as PDF - add-ins do not work properly - can we please have a native option like Chrome |?

Have tried a ton of add-ins to be able to save a web page with searchable text as a searchable PDF, complete with the images displayed on the page, and the links shown. So far I have not found a single add-in that creates searchable text from all the (searchable) text that is displayed on the web page, and all the images, and all the links. Some give a pdf output that includes all the text but not all of it is selectable or searchable. Some do give searchable text but do not display the images. I have even tried the option of using several different print to pdf virtual drivers, and all of them behave similarly, with one issue or the other.

This is a basic requirement, and it needs to work. So far, the only thing that works is a chrome=based brpwser using the native save to pdf function. (The pdf print drivers do not work with the chrome browser either - they produce the same problems as using Firefox.) I am flagging this so some kind person on the forum can step up to the mark - for finding or creating something that works. (FF latest). The solution needs to work without any third party servers - just the good ol' browser !

Thanks

Restore Previous Session not working - or, not properly at least

OK, I was using a very old version of firefox previously and restore previous session worked perfectly. If my computer crashed, when I rebooted it, the "trouble finding pages" message came up, click to restore session, and everything came back.

Then.... I upgraded to version 72.0.2 (64 bit)

Session restore no longer works, or at least not the way it should be working.

If I had say 20 windows open when the computer crashed, when I finish a reboot and start Firefox, I get the "trouble finding pages" message, and I click to restore session as before.

Anywhere from 2 to maybe 5 windows will restore. The rest are gone.

I suspect it has to do with the fact that there were now multiple "instances" of firefox running in the task manager, and what's happening is that it's restoring the windows in ONE of those previous instances, but not all of them.

It gives me the impression that the session restore function isn't tracking all the windows open in all those separate instances, but rather it's only tracking one instance.


Any assistance would be appreciated.

How to move tabs back below bookmarks toolbar like they used to be.

I have avoided upgrading to the latest Firefox for over a year now because new versions always move the tabs back to the top of the browser window. But this time when Firefox reloaded it upgraded itself and I had no choice. I was a graphic artist for decades, and it makes no sense to have the tabs all the way at the top, because your eye has to jump up to the top, away from the window itself, every time you want to move between tabs. It makes no sense, but so far Firefox has ignored these complaints (I'm not the only one) and has not offered a simple toggle in preferences or somewhere to move the tabs where they should IMO be.

I seem to have lost the instructions to do my own coding to move the damn things, and I would really appreciate if someone could tell me how I can move them back where they belong. And Firefox, PLEASE. People have been requesting this for several years now that I'm aware of, so PLEASE make this simple change and allow users the choice of how their browser windows should look.

Like many users who have placed this same complaint on this forum and others, Firefox, when left active with even only a few tabs, uses all available RAM until my 16 GB machine is populated up to 98% and barely works (Dell Optiplex 5060, i7-8700, 16 GB RAM, Windows 10 64-bit; Firefox 72.0.2 (64-bit)).

When I shut Firefox down, I release 8 GB of RAM. I have used the "about:memory|Minimize Memory Usage" button with some success.

How can I make that memory setting permanent or the default, so I don't have to lose my research momentum by having to wait to get to a point where I can open the "about" settings window and manually click that button? It's very frustrating.

I've tested in Safe Mode, disabled any add-ons (I only have what Firefox supplied), and the condition still persists.

Making the "Minimize Memory Usage" setting, or an equivalent if there is one, permanent would help.

Thanks.

This is NOT about auto-fill. For at least a month now, Firefox has not been recognizing forms on a variety of websites. This morning I was looking at a clothing website, but no matter what I did, I could not enter a size and then choose a color for any items. I opened another browser, and the website worked fine. I just tried to renew library books, and again, in Firefox, nothing I tried to do on the website worked. In another browser, the website worked fine. I have filled out almost an entire form on some websites, and then one box that I must fill out ("state" for example) doesn't work, and I can't complete the form. In another browser, the website form works fine. What's going on? I am updated with the latest version. This is happening on at least two computers.

what is it so hard to disable updates and stop your releases and keep my profile and addons. I had enough of your browser as with every update more things go wrong, missing or disabled. I just want to use the internet with the old addons I donw want any of your new features crap. With 8GB or ram your last browser fails to stop freezing my computer with your ram usage and process limit. I use basically the same addons and scripts as with FIrefox 52 and everything fails to work now. I hope someone can make a usable browser that does the simple things that I want and not have to deal with this again.

I've been using PDFcreator for years. Just recently, when I print to PDF from Firefox, it has started producing PDFs that do not contain searchable text (ie where the text from the webpage becomes a raster image).

PDFcreator still works properly with all other software (including Chrome). Can anyone recommend a way I can make Firefox start behaving itself?

Thanks!
