Several years before, I had an adblocker add-on with a feature to define own filter rules.

With that feature, I was able to block parts of often visited web pages with some few mouse clicks only.

Unfortunately, I don't remember, which adblocker and which additional addon I used at that time.

How can I find back that solution for me?

A webpage on our internal company domain ("") errors out with "Error SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG". If I switch to private browsing the same page works. The page also works with all other browsers without issue. If I "reset firefox", the page starts working again - even after firefox sync has re-installed all my add-ons. After some indeterminate amount of time (weeks) the page starts to error out again. This problem occurs on Firefox 75 on Ubuntu 18.04 as of now.

I'm at a total loss as to how to even begin to debug this - any pointers on where to start looking? As I mentioned the webpage that errors out the only page on an intranet so I cannot share the URL.

Hi all

I recently refreshed my Firebox browser and I can now no longer use McAfee WebAdvisor.

Really frustrated by this - I browse a lot for work and research. I find the WebAdvisor reassuring to have on-hand.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling WebAdvisor but it still does not show. I tried searching for it through the add-ons menu and it still does not appear.

I reached out to McAfee who told me that Mozilla no longer allows McAfee WebAdvisor on Firefox.

Is this actually, seriously the case? I'll be disappointed if so - Firefox is my preferred browser but I'll have to ditch it for Chrome if I cannot use a safe-search advisor. And it should be up to user which safe-search add-on they wish to use, not Mozilla.

Can anyone advise on this?

Many thanks!

Issue: Cannot play Amazon Music Unlimited.

Platform: Nvidia Jetson Nano

Processor: ARMv8 Processor rev 1 (v8l) × 4

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Browser: Firefox for Ubuntu version 75.0b11 (64-bit)

Description: When I log into amazon.com, I can play music excerpts but when I go to Amazon Music, I get the following error: Playback disabled – Please enable playback settings for your browser.

I saw on an Amazon forum (https://www.amazonforum.com/s/question/0D54P00006zSzZVSA0/linuxplayback-disabled-message-in-firefox) that Amazon Music playback is not supported if you are using a Linux computer. Customers using other operating systems (including Linux, Chrome OS, Windows versions older than Windows 7 and versions of OSX below 10.9) can download purchased music directly through their computer's web browser.

However I hear other people are playing other Amazon Prime content using Linux so I suspect you can make it work if you get Widevine.

Reading the forums, I think my issue is that I need Widevine Digital Rights Management.

One forum (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-drm) said that Widevine would be installed (Firefox downloads and enables the Google Widevine CDM on demand, with user permission, to give users a smooth experience on sites that require DRM). They also have instructions on where to enable it in the Add-ons Manager Plugins panel, ellipsis icon next to Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.

On the Add-ons Manager Plugins panel I don’t have Widevine listed. I see “OpenH264” and “Shockwave flash” but I do not see “Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google”.

It also said that you can always turn DRM playback on again by opening the Firefox Preferences General panel and, under “Digital Rights Management (DRM) Content”, putting a check mark next to “Play DRM-controlled content”. I don’t have “Digital Rights Management (DRM) Content” listed on the General panel.

I assumed that Widevine didn’t install on demand. So I found another forum that explained how to download the zip file from Google. I did the following steps to get the latest file and I put it in the plugins folder.

sudo wget https://dl.google.com/widevine-cdm/1.4.9.1088-linux-x64.zip

sudo unzip 1.4.9.1088-linux-x64.zip

sudo mv libwidevinecdm.so /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins

sudo chmod 644 /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/libwidevinecdm.so

Still it doesn’t appear in my Plugins.

Questions:

   • Do I need Widevine to play Amazon Music Unlimited?
   • If I do, how do I install Widevine?

I am a German but I prefer all my interfaces in English, and I prefer US English so that I get used to spelling consistently using a single variant of English. I have configured my System to use US English in general, but European versions for dates and currencies, so that I still have a sane date format (seriously, stop this M/D/Y madness) and ideally Euros. But it seems like there is no option to do something like this in Firefox.

I checked my addons and installed programs and can't find anything unexpected.

I have scanned with Malwarebytes and Windows Security and they can't find anything.

Hello,

Does Firefox support Office 365 online? I opened a Word document on Dropbox website and I got a message that office is not supported in this web browser. My computer has Windows 10 OS and I used Mozilla Firefox Developer as well as Mozilla Firefox. A colleague of mine has the same issue while using macOS Mojave 10.14.6 and Mozilla Firefox.

BTW I have Dark Reader plug-in enabled in my browser, that's why the picture is in reversed colours. It doesn't affect the problem described.

Thanks.

I am not ALLOWED to ever find the location of the firefox address or navigation bar. The "people" of firefox use these two names all over this site, and not once will anyone tell me the location, or how they may be accessed. If the most basic data is EXCLUDED, because EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT FIREFOX, how is the new user to find anything? I have spent 7 hours on your website, because this browser idles at almost a gig of RAM on the browser homepage, I researched and found out I'm supposed use the "navigation bar" unfortunately someone forgot include it's location. It's great that you include the data that the "minimize memory usage" button exists as a tool, BUT WHERE IN THE HELL WAS IT HIDDEN? I have never experienced a product that intentionally excludes instructions, and there is no way to get any help or service, and I'm left with this poor excuse for customer service with leaving questions that will never be answered. Thanking you in advance for NO HELP OR SERVICE, James Erb(email address).

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-firefox-address-bar?as=u&utm_source=inproduct

I have gone through and clicked a never ending amount of pages and I still cannot find an answer.

I don't want a never ending drop down menu it's annoying and distracting as well as pointless, since it is easy enough to do in the background, I don't need it constantly on in the foreground. There is enough constant garbage to have to sort through, I don't need more garbage added to the visual pile of steaming crap. KISS applies.

Yes I am not happy about it..

Thanks in advance.

So yeah, I don't know why but since yesterday it has been acting strange. I haven't tinkered with anything if my memory serves right. Whenever I try to open a website or the Preferences page or anything -- it is blank! I can't open new tabs too. I tried various solutions like no Hardware Acceleration, refreshing and even re-installation. However, what is weird is, I can use Firefox alright with Window's Safe Mode (not Firefox's, Window's).

I tried clearing AppData and some other stuff and am getting no response. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

this morning when I turned on my computer firefox was open and it looked like the address bar was targeted. Nothing would load. I can see my favorite websites in a drop down list but I can't go to them. I cannot access the options or library menus. All I can do is close the window by closing it on the tab not the window itself.

I have run two anti viruses, I have restarted my computer and I have reinstalled firefox. I cannot access anything in firefox. Here is a picture of what I see. I am still getting the same issue.

I already upgraded my home's internet speed up to 1Gb. It included a router's change. The fact i, when i do a speed test on Firefox, it does reach only 600 Mb download speed and 100 upload. If i do the same speed test with another browser, i get 900 MB download and 100 Mb upload. So , how do i configure Firefox in order to get same values than Edge and Chrome browsers? I understand it might has to be with some parameters in about:config . Could you give me some light on this? Thanks

I can't get the darn thing to work. It's been over and hour and you know nothing should be that hard to do. This is way too complicated for all that time just to turn on a mic. I can't get it to work in Google Docs Voice typing. Anyone?
