So i've been having trouble starting fire fox after it updates. The last couple of times i just kept trying and it worked but this last time nothing seemed to solve the problem. So i old-school troubleshooted the problem by opening task manager, going to process' and selecting all users when trying to start fire fox. And i noticed another set of process's opening and closing with fire fox under the name LVPrcSrv except there was one more of these process's than there were of fire fox so as soon as fire fox and the additional LVPrcSrv process's closed i manually ended the last remaining LVPrcSrv process and then tried to start fire fox again and this time it work. I'm worried this trick wont work again so i'd like to ask the Mozilla developer whats actually wrong with my fire fox so i can fix it before it becomes permanently inoperable.

Due that this app must run in many computers with differents default download carpets, is there any way to "cath" the default download carpet of Firefox by means of code, in this case, VBA ). Is this default carpet "hidden" at any place in the Windows register? This could also help me.

Have the settings listed here been discontinued?

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.urlbar.restrict.tag

I still have those entries in my prefs.js to specify my preferred keys. This used to work back in the day, but now my chosen keys are ignored, and only the built-in defaults seem to apply.

Have these settings been moved to different keys, or is it no longer possible to over-ride the defaults at all?

Hello!

I have firefox 74 (64-bit), after one of the bluescreens that sometimes happen for my laptop, my Firefox tabs became very, very transparent.

This is it how it looked before: https://puu.sh/Fnzh1/b606c91b73.jpg

This is how it looks now: https://puu.sh/FLYyk/63fb3fab0e.jpg

As you can see, in both cases I have 3 tabs opened and some other firefox window below. However, opacity is very high in the first case and you almost don't see anything else aside of the 3 tabs opened, while in the current situation is like non-existent and if not the difference in the size of the tabs, you wouldn't even notice that these tabs are not from the current window, but from some other window below!

Can someone help me understand how it happened and, more importantly, how to fix this problem? I tried searching options for things like 'transparency', 'transparent', 'opacity', etc., but couldn't find anything :-(

Hello Community,

I always used Firefox as PDF-Viewer and it worked fine. But since the last update it is not possible to view PDF-files anymore: whenever I click on a PDF or a link to a PDF - Firefox creates new tabs endlessly. When I quit Firefox and restart it I have lots of new and empty tabs in the browser, but no PDF. It's very annoying because I have to close them all manually and can't view PDFs anymore.

I have not installed any new software, no registry hacks, have changed nothing in the browsers config, so I suppose it has something to do with the update to 76.0.1

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I happen to be one who simply does not wish to have any program remember or store passwords of any kind, thank you. An irritating problem I have with Firefox Password Manager is that whenever I log on to any site and the Password Manage box pops up and offers to save my password...once I select "Never Save" I expect that choice to be honored and would appreciate it if it were. But it simply isn't. I must continue to select "Never Save" each and every time I log onto any and all websites. What does "Never" mean in this context if the Password Manager continues to circulate the same query every single time? Is there any way I can simply disable Password Manager and thus avoid this irritation...which is getting very tedious and old. Please?

Clarify Extended Validation

I am trying to establish that a Web site uses Extended Validation as described in [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/.../how-do-i-tell-if-my-connection-is-secure]. It says:

"For sites using EV certificates, the legal company or organization name and location of the website owner displays when you click the gray padlock."

Here is a site that I am highly confident uses extended validation. You can read this for more details on why this matters a great deal read this for more details on why this matters a great deal. When I click on the gray padlock, I get a simple pop-up that doesn't display the legal company/org name or location of the web site! But it does show a gray padlock, green text "Connection Secure", and a clickable right-arrow. I then click on "more information", then "View Certificate" to finally get org details...but I still have no idea if this is an EV certificate! The only clue may be the detail "Extended Key Usages" "Purposes: Server Authentication, Client Authentication". I want to conclude that this means this is an EV certificate, but I am unable to find any documentation from Firefox/Mozilla that proves that this is an EV certificate. I suppose I could phone the organization and manually verify their details vs. what it says on the certificate, but this is a lot of work! Worse, for large organizations that go by different names and addresses, it could be a legit connection to the org's Web server, but what they tell me on the phone still might not match what the certificate says.

Can anybody shed light on this? How can I easily verify that this is an EV certificate?

I am currently running Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Win 7.

Previously, Firefox made this easy by displaying a green padlock symbol. Some Firefox forks still do, such as the *current* version of Tor Browser which is 9.0.10 (based on Mozilla Firefox 68.8.0esr) (32-bit).

Why did Firefox stop displaying the green padlock?

Used to be able to move a tab into a different window by dragging it there. No longer works (Win 7, FF75 and now 76) despite your help article that says to do just this--so how can I do this? I'm trying to consolidate a bunch of tabs currently in their own windows, into just one window which will hold all the tabs on a related subject.

I use Firefox to download a file from Internet by means of the command Shell of VBA, i.e :

Shell ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" & " -url https://FileName.exe")

and curiously sometimes the FileName is downloaded without problems and the next time I try to download it, it appears a warning indicating Firefox has closed unexpectedly. And of course, the next time I try to download the file, it is dowloaded again without problems and the story is repeated continuously.
