Hello all. For the past couple months i've been able to use the web version of Google Earth within the browser with little to no issue. However, about a week or two ago I discovered Google Earth stopped working whenever I tried to use it. I would navigate to Google Earth's website, click "Launch Google Earth", and be met with this loading screen which never changes. I went to Google for help and they had me run Memtest86 on my computer, to which I found all of my RAM sticks were fully functional with 0 error or issue.

I am using the absolute latest version of firefox as well as my operating system. I am running Windows 10 on a custom built PC for gaming, 64-bit. I've tried the following:

-disabling browser addons -restarting firefox -disabling my antivirus -disabling my antimalware -restarting computer (multiple times) -disabling ALL of my browser addons

Now at first google earth wouldn't load in google chrome either, but at some point during my troubleshooting for fixing google earth on firefox, google earth began loading in chrome with no issue. As of now the only browser that can't pull up google earth is Firefox. I've attached a screenshot of the error messages I see when loading Google Earth in firefox.

Please, any and all help would be greatly appreciated. If there's anymore relevant, useful information I could provide then please let me know.

Hello everyone.

I tried switching Firefox (Windows 10) from Polish to English. (It is nice to see a program in your native language. However, most manuals, tutorials, forums etc. on the Web are in English, so using English version of apps wherever possible feels straightforward and consistent). I found one functionality that is browser language dependent for no reason - availability of search engines. Specifically, allegro.pl (Polish auction site). It's there by default when Firefox language is set to Polish. When I switch to English, it disappears along with other default Polish search engines, only to be replaced by English ones.

When I try a "manual" setup of search engines, allegro.pl is nowhere to be found. Firefox settings -> find search engines - no official allegro search engine (just some fan-made add-ons). Go to allegro.pl -> Firefox search bar - I expected the icon of magnifier with green plus sign that would add the search engine of current site - again it's not there.

Is there any workaround? Cheers, Rafał

How to have 3 separate tabs at startup but just one tab when I click HOME icon in Firefox browser bar?

Here's all I want. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. When I start Mozilla Firefox I want it to open with three tabs... ❶ https://www.goese.com/favorites/index.htmlhttps://www.goese.com/reference/unicode.htmlhttps://messages.google.com/web/conversations

From then on, when I click on the home button, I only want the tab/page I'm viewing to switch to this page... https://www.goese.com/favorites/index.htmlhttps://www.goese.com/favorites/index.html

Is Firefox capable of doing this? (Chrome is, but got WAY too slow recently...to a point I couldn't take it anymore.) Right now if I use those three pages for startup, the home button opens a new session in all three pages, which makes no sense to me. I need to be able to specify different & separate pages for "startup" and "home." I'm old so I'm probably just looking at the interface wrong.

Thanks!

Hey,

on one of my notebooks (Thinkpad E495) FF occasionally crashes. This started happening a few months ago. Before I've been using FF on the same machine for years without any issues. It's pretty random but usually happens at least once a day, usually shortly after startup or wakeup from hibernate mode. A while ago it used to even crash back to back twice in a row meaning after I reopened it, it immediately closed again and only worked after I selected to restore the previous session after the 2nd reopen. Nothing is registered under about:crashes and I don't see any errors in the system event log.

I already tried to disable hardware acceleration and reinstalled FF completely without any addons besides a different adblocker. I cannot really reproduce the crash in safe-mode but don't really want to browse the web for possibly hours without an adblocker.

Any ideas what this could be or what else I could try? Maybe downgrade to a previous version?

Hi, I try to orginize my bookmar sidebar. I have "Other bookmarks" folder in the bottom, and try to drag it to top, but firefox creates a copy of folder instead of moving it. Also, I erroneously drag "Bookmark menu" and firefox create a copy of it inside "Other bookmarks" folder. It looks like cycle reference - when I click on "Bookmark menu" inside "Other bookmarks" I any time see again "Other bookmarks" and "Bookmark menu" inside it. Looks like nightmare! How can I fix it? please help!

I've been using firefox since it's early release. My PC is set up as a DAW and I have more audio cards and usb connection that routes audio around. Now I can have my main DAW software running on my monitors via ASIO, In windows I set the it to my secondary driver. Now can open firefox, go to youtube and sound from the browser goes there. I can start the DAW and have sounds there. It worked perfectly.

But now suddenly no sound in Firefox. I just starts, no errors or anything, but no sound. I had a look a some of the FAQ's but nothing changed. Reinstall etc. Well short story, Edge works, so now firefox sadly have to go.

Thx for the good work. This is very good browser, but it don't work for me.

I recently upgraded from a Dell XPS laptop to a Dell XPS Inspiron laptop and had my old laptop cloned to the new one. There's been only one change noted when using the new laptop -- whenever I have Firefox open, and want to print the page displayed, the File menu no longer offers the option "Print Preview", which I used all the time on my old laptop. Any idea why it's disappeared, and how to get it back? Thanks.
