I've had no problems for years when using PayPal to pay for Ebay items, but suddenly 14/02/2020 the PayPal pop-up window just sits there with the spinning circle. Paying by credit/debit card works fine, but I want the payment to come straight out from my bank account. Followed the simple instructions like disabling AdBlocker and checking Pop-ups are allowed, as given in other answers. Still stuck for a solution, saw elsewhere a reference to user_pref file but that just confused me as I'm not that technically minded. Any help would be gratefully received.

I am using Firefox browser on my MacBook Pro and I have noticed the following.

When I quit the Firefox app (no background activity), and I click on a link that I receive in an email (from my Mail app), then Firefox opens 2 windows. One is empty and the second leads to the desired link.

On the other hand, if I don't quit the Firefox app but simply close it (x symbol), then when I click on a link it open correctly in a single window.

Win 10/FF I reinstalled FF after automatically downloading 73.0 and I had a terrible day on computer yesterday. SLOW. It was fine today, for some reason, so there are no issues I can detect. Because I have an old laptop, should I download the 32-bit version? I spent a lot of time restoring FF, even though I thought everything would rollover. Can I do the change w/o reinstalling everything???

Thank you.

Hi, I have a problem with login in to my Firefox Sync Account, after clean installation of Windows 10. I have not recall to enable 2FA in Firefox Sync i have never used it to activate account on my PC or Android Phone. I'm using 2FA to my Google Account witch is the email for my Firefox Sync Account. But supposedlyi did.

I have tried to use keys generated by Google Authenticator (witch is only 2FA token I use, not counting Facebook App, witch I use only for FB) but no success. I tried to use this link https://accounts.firefox.com/signin and then use proper password. Then there is an information to check email for confirmation link. I get no email, noting in spam nothing nowhere. I did add the accounts@firefox.com email address to protect it from spam filters, but nothing in 4 days, waiting for a miracle. 

In an act of desperation i did change the password for the account. And i received email to confirm this chance witch a did. The email was send from accounts@firefox.com e-mail, and it arrived in my inbox immediately.

Why i do not get the confirmation email?

As per subject. When I disable the extension and reload the webpage I can once again select text and click on links.

I tried contacting McAfee support and they suggested reinstalling the extension but I don't want to do that just yet. If you already have the extension perhaps you can see if you have the issue? https://marsbase.org/

I'm not sure whose responsible firefox or mcafee?

I've also asked https://superuser.com/q/1525936/627894 here and reported the extension to firefox.

So can anyone with McAfee WebAdvisor replicate this issue so I can forward this onto McAfee support?

Ok, so apparently I have forgotten my master password. How I did this I have no clue since its the same password I use for everything, and I know its a bad idea, but I just wanted an extra layer in case someone stole my laptop.

So, since if I have forgotten my master password, that is the same as 99% of my other passwords, I CANNOT take the chance of just reseting it and losing all the others, cause surely I won't get them right. I know I won't be able to login into google they've refused to allow me access to my main account with them for months. I won't get into that stuffs just this stuff.

I've been reading through the site here, and have tried a thing or two but none of the questions really sound like what I need:

I've forgotten my master password, and I cannot reset it for fear of losing my other passwords which may have been forgot. I'm set as the default user and there are no other users for the computer or browser. Google has been a bear about letting me into my accounts there, so the fear of losing what I can access is real.

Thanks for reading, I appreciate what you guys are doing here in your free time. Let me know what you think, even if I'm screwed.

I can't find a way to change the scrollbar color in firefox 73. The gery on grey scrollbar is very annoying because it's so hard to see. I tried to create chrome folder and tried to add various codes to userChrome. I also tried this: https://gist.github.com/Sporif/db6b3440fba0b1bcf5477afacf93f875 but it seems to not work.

On some pages the scrollbar color is fine, but on most pages it is the annoying grey on grey. I also tried disabling layout.css.scrollbar-color.enabled in about:config without any effects.
