I just upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 and neither Firefox or Thunderbird will connect to the internet. I can ping 8.8.8.8 just fine. I turned off the firewall and they still will not connect. They connected just fine before the upgrade. I changed the proxy to no proxy and system proxy. Still no luck. What am I missing?

Hi. Currently on Linux, I changed my DNS settings (along with removing /etc/resolv.conf.d somehow?) - the rest of web browsing works fine, actually faster now with the new server. However, something I knocked switched off the 'allow playback of any video no matter what website.' switch. I have tried removing extensions, installing advanced tools, replacing versions of flash, but nothing seems to crack it and from what I can find nobody else has this issue.

I have tried the following sites:

  • any* youtube video

https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html - has a few test videos in different formats BBC news - the ads load, but not the preroll video ads. They all load with a loading indicator, the first frame shows up, no movement. Same with youtube Soundcloud - tried to listen to some music and this didn't work either. Spotify was similar and kept sweeping through songs at an alarming pace to find one that worked.

This doesn't seem to be browser specific but maybe Firefox caused it idk Help apprechiated

Hello! Long time Firefox user here, first time poster. From my UX, I've noticed FF History and Address Bar search of previously visited pages' behavior changes. I hope I'm not the only one. This happened ~1yr ago (maybe when I updated to version 57) but I couldn't quite put my finger on the issue.

TLDR: Why is FF History displaying google URLs instead of the actual webpage they point to? (SEE IMAGE BELOW)

I.E.: It shows the URL: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=2ahUKEwjZvozs58bdAhUry4UKHWXCCuQQFjABegQICRAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fstackoverflow.com%2Fquestions%2F18387490%2Fhow-do-i-convert-a-height-of-an-element-given-in-vh-to-pixels&usg=AOvVaw0rqvnKA5FEqhaMQIV4gpXo

Instead of the one it points to: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18387490/how-do-i-convert-a-height-of-an-element-given-in-vh-to-pixels



Why does this make a difference? I can't search for keywords such as "how convert height element" like I used to !!

Is this a known issue? PLEASE FIX THIS :)

I recently had to do a Restore to Firefox. Ever since then I can't add bookmarks to my Bookmarks Toolbar. When I select Customize I do see the Bookmark Toolbar Items and I've been able to add things like the Pinterest Save button, but when I try to add an actual bookmark by dragging it into the toolbar I get a circle with a slash through it and the bookmark won't save.

I also can't restore any of what shows as previous bookmark backups. When I try to do a Restore it say it is unable to process the Restore, no matter how far back I go. My bookmark list is completely empty. 

Any ideas on why I can't save bookmarks to the Bookmarks Toolbar?

I've been having issues w/FF 61.0.2 losing everything new such as new bookmarks, ANY setting. Have posted Qs and followed various steps. Finally tried a complete reinstall. I uninstalled (from Windows 7 Pro 64b), rebooted, downloaded & used the installer, w/gave me 62.0.2 which is only 3 days old. Only hiccup was an error stating 'MS Register Server has stopped working' and I chose 'close the program'.

I specifically unchecked the box upon install to NOT use any old settings when it prompted me 'FF has been installed before' yet a fresh install now gives me my old profiles prompt. I do not want ANY old settings. I need a COMPLETELY new pristine FF install.

Please help me get back to using FF where I can save bookmarks, install uBlock, make cookie exceptions, only default profile, etc.


Thank you profusely in advance,

Mac

On just about any web page I work on, after this recent upgrade to 60.2.1esr on my Macbook Pro, I cannot find the text input boxes. There is no outline visible at all until I click somewhere inside the "invisible" box to make it visible. This tiresome... And additionally, the colors seem so washed out - tables and spreadsheets are so hard to read now! I tried some of the available themes but they didn't help any.
