Hello

The confirmation e-mail that I receive on my work account contains only characters (no images, buttons, etc.). See "Screen.PNG". This is caused by restrictions/security measures set up by my employer.

I have set up a Firefox account on a Gmail account with no trouble at all, but with my work account I cannot, as I cannot access the link in the confirmation e-mail.

When I paste the link from the e-mail to a browser, I encounter an error that the confirmation-link is damaged and thus not working.

Is there another way for me to activate my Firefox account other than going to the confirmation-link? I have spoken with the IT department of my workplace and they cannot change the restrictions.

The account in question is krk at elbek-vejrup .dk

Thank you in advance, much appreciated

Best,

Kristoffer

I cannot download anything. I cannot install ANY extension. uBlock extension. The only thing that works with so called third-party content -> onto my PC is `save-as`. I am struggling with this for more than a few hours and have tried EVERYTHING. I mean LITERALY EVERYTHING that can be found regarding this. Chromium browser works normally.

Have tried with default firefox-esr that ships with debian, and with Quantum 65 (current) version. Not a single change. I am using Debian (stable) Stretch, and no it is not firewall issue nor it is connection (proxy setup) issue, I strongly believe. Like I said, chromium just - works and I don't have sympathy for chromium nor I would like to gain some.

I am not even unable to upload an images of the issues I am experiencing.

"Uploading "test_download_file.png"..." ... for more than a 10 minutes.

This morning I brought up Firefox on my Win10 64 system as I always do, and immediately hit "ctrl-k" to get the cursor into the "awesome bar" (which is set to all three tick boxes in the privacy & security -> address bar settings.) Usually I enter shortcuts (set in bookmarks, like 'gm' for mail.google.com) so that I don't have to type in the full address. However that didn't work today because every time I hit "ctrl-k" a question mark automatically appears in the "awesome bar". It will search just fine but if I want to go to a web site or use a short cut I have to backspace over the question mark or it will just search for what I'm typing in. I tried clearing everything (ctrl-shift-del, tick all boxes, "for all time") and still the problem persists. I also unchecked all three tick boxes in Privacy & Security -> Address bar and it still happens. Disabled all addons and problem persists. Help! This is seriously getting in the way of my work flow. Please let me know if there's any information that you need. I consider myself a power user so don't be afraid to dive into the weeds if need be.

Thanks!


and I see that it's running 65.0 (new version?).

When I start to type an address in the URL bar, I get a drop down box directly below the url/address bar. The dropdown, which is as wide as my firefox window, contains a little magnifying glass icon and the text "Search with duckduckgo"

I don't want this drop down box at all but I can't seem to disable it.

I do not have anything checked (browsing history, bookmarks, or open tabs) checked under address bar in my privacy and security settings, and I do not have provide search suggestions checked in my search settings.

I tried this solution:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

when I tried this, the value for the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference was already set to false, so this solution didn't help.


I would really appreciate some help removing this drop down. Thank you for reading.

Good day guys ,

Basically what I want is to make facebook.com logout when I close firefox and enter again. This should be possible by just going to >Cookies and site data >Manage permissions and blocking cookies for facebook.com but the problem is this option for firefox is completely useless , doesn't do absolutely anything as I'm still getting cookies saved from facebook.com , therefore every time I open firefox again my facebook is already logged in.

Is there any alternative solutions to this besides checking the box "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" ???

Because I don't want that either...cause that means I have to log into every site separately every time I open again firefox...I only want to do that for Firefox.

Thank you

I'm a german user, sorry for my bad english. I hope that someone can help me.

Everytime, when I start my personal computer, I do have the same problem:

Firefox is starting and it shows me my (five) websites in his tabs, but they will not be loaded. Instead of loading, one tab shows me to restart all others, after all other tabs are closed. Then Firefox ask me, if I want to restart all my five websites. It's not important, how many tabs I want to load, it's not important, which websites I want to load. The problem is the same.

I did uninstall Firefox (first simply, later with IObit Unistaller removing residual files) and install it after that again. I deleted the cache and all cookies. Nothing changed. The problem is not resolved.

What can I do?

Is there a way to increase the size of Firefox cache? I am having to clear cache 4-5 times a day in order to play a game. This is really annoying.

And why do all Firefox answers only refer to Windows 8? That is very old and I've had Windows 10 for several years now.

I just updated my copy of Firefox to version 65.0. Immediately, I noticed that the tab bar has now been moved back to the top of the window, despite the hack I used to move it down. I know that I'm certainly not unique in disliking this location for the tabs toolbar. It makes a lot more sense for that toolbar to be below the bookmarks toolbar. That way, it separates the website content from the program's interface. Does anybody know of a way to move the tabs back down below the bookmarks toolbar? TIA

I tried to login, Firefox would not recognize my password. I clicked on forgot password, didn't get an email. Tried twice. Opened up a new tab, went to login Firefox, put in my email as user name and my old password and it took. This is very confusing. MY Questions was to be: I start my computer (I don't leave it on all night) everything boots up, I click on Firefox icon and from there it takes minimum 40 seconds to 60 seconds to finally appear. Why is it so slow? Never use to be? Thanks for any answers you can give.
