My adblocker, after years of working well, has stopped working. I'm getting ads on every site. On going to the add-on download site of Adblocker plus for Firefox at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ there is only a "remove" button, but nothing happens when clicking it. So apparently I can't even delete and reinstall it. What can I do?

Hello,

When a page inside <iframe> request permission of using microphone or camera, the firefox don't ask permission (the asking permission panel don't show up!), below is an example:

if you directly open https://meet.jit.si/test123 in firefox, the Firefox will ask microphone and camera permission from the user but if you open https://test.spacex.ml/ which put https://meet.jit.si/test123 in an iframe then FIrefox don't ask any permission and refuse user to use microphone and camera!

Please help, thanks!

Hi,

so I love Firefox and the ability to use addons even on mobile, which Chrome couldn't (which also was the reason why I switched to Firefox in the first place), the only thing that really bothers me is Lockwise. It's really glitchy sometimes; either it doesn't show up at all, then I have to manually copy paste my login data, or it moves around on the page when I scroll down, open up the keyboard etc.

So I thought, why not use Google's autofill, the feature I've always loved, because it works just perfectly, on Firefox instead. Did that on my tablet and mobile phone, as luckily you can select your autofill provider on Android. Sadly there's no option on Firefox so far (or I missed it, I quickly went through about:config but couldn't find anything there as well)... Maybe there's some hidden option or a safe addon that lets me do that?

Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance, Maria

The only way I am able to login into Bands in Town manager is through my facebook account (https://manager.bandsintown.com/login), but I am not able to through Firefox browser. I am able to do it through Safari Browser so it seems that it's something to do with the firefox browser. I restarted my computer and updated the firefox browser but it is still not working.

Hi all! I know this isn't the first time you've heard this... I've been fighting with this master password issue since the middle of July and I've exhausted all the options I'm aware of. I have tried to reset my password several times but the ""Master Password Box "" keeps popping up (even while typing this) and none of my previous nor current passwords open it and it's required before i can login to access any of my data and passwords etc.. Which i do not know what the password is anymore. I did know it bc i typed it in several times a day.... either Microsoft update or Mozz update happened and that password is useless now and i can not afford to lose this information!!! As stated, I'm losing biz as i type PLUS i can't pay my bills until I get back into my data. My IPhone and iPad and other devices are all caught up in this mess as well. I feel absolutely hopeless! One would think if you donate several hundred $ a year to Mozz and you'd think there would be some sort priority support for Donors. My other devices can't sign in either... Ive tried most everything I've seen in support and nothing seems to work. I feel as though the more i mess with it the deeper I'm sinking! I have a back up that is from 2018 which gaps the last 2 years of data and PW.. I Still have my old recovery key password that didn't work in the beginning when all of this happened, nor does windows master password work. I have everything backed up on a hard drive as well but I haven't gone down that road yet. I've been at this infinite loop for over a week now and I need some serious help please!!

By the way, I think there is some other difference between these two 64-bit Firefoxes. Maybe they are different "languages" or "locales"? At the bottom of the Troubleshooting Information page, there is a section on that. The one you don't want is, I think the U.S. English build. Is the other one a different language/locale?

I did the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and renaming the Mozilla Firefox Folder. All that worked fine. The taskbar icon works.

But, I went out of order. I did the above before I saw your "by the way" message. I am again attaching jpegs from both troubleshooting pages on the Internationalization & Localization section If this is what you are referring to they are both the same.

So, if this is alright I will go back and redo the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and so on. Then delete C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and the desktop icon. Anything else that needs deleting?

Just for grins I am also attaching a jpeg of the Mozilla Firefox program from the Control Panel - Programs_Features page.

Think that's it.

Thanks again and again for all your help, Irv
