I just discovered today, 7-2-20, that the latest version of firefox is not compatible with the latest version of the statefarm.com website, while chrome and opera work fine with the website. Apparently, statefarm.com has recently done some upgrades that make it incompatible with firefox. The mozilla developers need to get with statefarm.com to see what the compatibility problems are so that the situation can be resolved. My guess at this point is perhaps adobe flash player related, but that's just a guess. Until this is resolved, I will use opera to access the statefarm.com website.

When I want to print a page of Firefox I get the response: "Firefox is blocking popups". When I try to change this, I get the mask for exception, but only for websites, not for things like printing. Why do I need a popup to print, why can't I define printing as exception?

I just starting using Firefox, and I've installed it on a Mac Laptop, a Windows Desktop, an iPhone, and an iPad.

Each install is logged into the same Firefox account, and each install began with the same set of bookmarks.

Now, when I add or remove a bookmark on one device, it's not syncing to any other device. I've tried this on several devices. I've tried manually clicking the "sync" icon on each device to try to kick it into working.

How can I fix this?

Hi, I've got a problem with sound with few websites. I'm using 2 sound devices, my headset and my 2nd TV screen which have speakers. For example I got problem with twitter and google translator. When I try to play a sound from both of these sites when I'm using my headset as my default sound output, it doesn't work, there is no sound at all but when I change to my TV screen it plays these sounds. I have no problem with youtube, netlfix or other steaming platforms. I've just noticed that problem with these 2 websites, I don't know about other websites. Oh, and on 9gag I got similar problem but not every video is without sound, some of them has a sound and some of them hasn't. My device is set to default as in attached image.

I have Macualar Degeneration so I use the Windows magnifier all the time. They have added a "Read from here" feature where you click where you want it to start reading and it should read the text. When I click the voice says, "Disabled." I have checked in Options the setting for "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" and it was unchecked. I tried checking that and it made no difference. I opened a text document and the feature worked fine. In Microsoft apps, it works fine. In an OpenOffice text document it says "Cannot read from here" - it must not be compatible with OpenOffice. The fact that it says "Disabled" in Firefox makes me think that there's a setting that can be changed to enable it. I have iCloud Bookmarks, Instagram Photo Plus, Video Download Helper, extensions active and AdBlock Plus and Facebook Container disabled. What can I do to enable Read From Here in Firefox?

I'm finding that I'm winding up with multiple instances of firefox running. I don't mean multiple windows but multiple sessions of firefox itself where each one has however many windows/tabs that I may have open managed under each instance. As an example, right now on one of my machines, I see two different two different instances when I attempt to Send Tab To Device (see Groot in attachment). This has lead to me losing session data as it seems that only one instance is managed by the restore feature. I don't consider that only one instance being restored a bug but maybe devs think different; I'm not questioning the session restore feature operation here. What I'm asking here is how to merge multiple instances down to one so that sessions restore will recover all my windows/tabs. How do I figure out which windows/tabs are with which instance? How do I know which instance will be restored?

Possible Feature Request: I don't know if multiple instances being started is self inflicted or a by product of some firefox operation encountered during use; I've not deliberately started separate instances. What would be cool is a feature that only allows one instance to be running at a time. This feature could warn if there is already a managed instance running if another attempts to start and help to prevent future possible lose of session data.

So here is my issue. I have about 500 tabs open on my Firefox browser. Whenever I need to restart my computer, I close my session, restart, reopen Firefox and it loads my entire session no problem. The neat thing about this is that when I do this, the tab title (along with the website icon) is preserved but the actual page only reloads when I switch to that tab. For example, imagine I have a YouTube video titled "Programming in Python", the tab would say "Programming in Python - YouTube" with the YouTube logo to the left of the title. There is definitely some kind of cache magic going on because say if that video was taken down on YouTube, the title would still be preserved until I switch to that tab. In my latest reloaded session, I noticed that tabs #250-500 failed to load the tab title and instead show the website URL with the icon I attached below. Is there any way to reload these tab titles without actually refreshing the page manually one by one (kinda like how Firefox does it on startup)? This is kinda how I navigate and it isn't helpful seeing just a URL.

When searching for a word on an already loaded page I use find (cntrl f). The word if found is highlighted in a different color. In the default case its a light green. Can I change the color to red bold or at the least the background color in the highlighted word to black or red. Anything that has a much higher contrast. There doesn't seem to be a config option to do this but it may not be under the "findbar" family.

Hey, so I've noticed for a few weeks now that across a few different websites like Reddit & Messenger, some words that are clearly meant to be swears are replaced with the same word over and over.

For example, I was talking with one of my friends earlier in Messenger on desktop and at some point he typed "son of a bitch". When I opened up Messenger on the same platform again a few hours later, I notice that it said "son of a boss" instead. I checked Messenger on my phone, and it didn't change the word there.

The same thing occurs on my Reddit account sometimes too, where similar swears are replaced with "boss".

I'm not sure if this is even a Firefox issue, but it hasn't happened anywhere else on my computer or phone before, and my friends and I can't replicate it on their devices either. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

How can I know the names of elements in firefox tab context menu? (Menu which appears when we right click on a tab)

Example - If I want to hide the "sendtodevice" menu, then I will add below code to userChrome.css

/* Hide Send Tab to Device */

  1. context_sendTabToDevice_separator,
  2. context_sendTabToDevice,
  3. context_sendTabToDevicePopupMenu {
 display: none !important;

}

For send to device menu, the element names are above. For other menu items, where can I get their element names?

Hi. I have just been updated to version 78.0.1 (64-bit) I have a large number of .lnk files that drive my work. As of this update, Firefox no longer opens these files, instead it forces me to download the link file, and then click on the downloaded link file to instatiate it. Of course, this means that I cannot open the link file in Private mode. This is cluttering up my download folder, forcing the web page referenced into non-private mode, and causing cascading problems from there. What is the setting that will allow me to click on my bookmarked .lnk files (which in most cases open .html web pages) and open directly. If I can't do this then I'll have to migrate away from Firefox, which I absolutely do not want to do.

Thank you. Cyril

The Firefox browser on Windows desktop 100% redirects to an isolated and unusable bank login page. No other browser does this. Firefox Android does not do this. I tried clearing cookies / cache, disabled all extensions, safe mode without success. This is very frustrating when trying to use and support Firefox over Brave which never has these issues. In both cases below, the initial site nearly fully loads then redirects. Malware not an issue given very tight PC security and new install of Firefox.

Chase.com -> https://secure03a.chase.com/web/auth/logonbox?lang=en&fromOrigin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.chase.com#/logonbox/index/index

schwab.com -> https://lms.schwab.com/Login?clientId=schwab-prospect&startInSetId=1&redirectUri=https://client.schwab.com/login/signon/authcodehandler.ashx&enableappd=false

Both of the redirects contain only the login forms of the main page (eg "Login ID", "Password", "Login" button)

I only want to block adverts when they are intrusive and I feel bad about blocking acceptable ads. Most ad blockers will allow you to whitelist a website but I often will not notice that the ads are being blocked and thus not white list it. What I want is an ad block extension to Firefox that only turns on for new sites when I tell it to, although it should be able to remember which sites I want it on for. I can't think of the best way to explain this which is why I couldn't find a solution on the web.

Does anyone know of an adblocker with this feature and how do I turn it on?
