Hi all

I recently refreshed my Firebox browser and I can now no longer use McAfee WebAdvisor.

Really frustrated by this - I browse a lot for work and research. I find the WebAdvisor reassuring to have on-hand.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling WebAdvisor but it still does not show. I tried searching for it through the add-ons menu and it still does not appear.

I reached out to McAfee who told me that Mozilla no longer allows McAfee WebAdvisor on Firefox.

Is this actually, seriously the case? I'll be disappointed if so - Firefox is my preferred browser but I'll have to ditch it for Chrome if I cannot use a safe-search advisor. And it should be up to user which safe-search add-on they wish to use, not Mozilla.

Can anyone advise on this?

Many thanks!

Since the latest versions of Firefox--say, the last month or so--Firefox continues to override and change my preferred file association for pdf files. I have gone in through the Windows 10 Start/Settings/Apps to change the file association for pdf files to my Adobe Acrobat Pro, but within a few hours Firefox automatically changes it back, system-wide, to Firefox. This is quite frustrating, to say the least. I have tried the Options within Firefox, and choose (as I do for most files) to "Ask Me First" upon opening, but don't find any further file association info there. Nevertheless, even when viewing my files within Windows Explorer (File Explorer), I cannot keep my chosen files association of Adobe Acrobat Pro, as it continually reverts to Firefox.

How can I disable this behavior of Firefox 80.0.1 that is overriding my preference? Or is it a bug that can be fixed?

Thank you for your assistance.... Enten

Is there a way for me to extend the drop-down window on the Firefox browser from the hamburger icon? I don't enjoy having to scroll down through the menu to have to access things like Options or Help when the menu drop-down could just drop down further so I don't have to scroll down. Is there a way I can customize this, or no?

Attached is a screenshot of the menu I'm talking about, with a circle

Thanks!

Dear all,

I cannot install any add-on as Firefox, provides me (instead "+ Add to Firefox") a button:

"Only with Firefox - Get Firefox Now" (see attached image).

I have Firefox version 80.0.1 (64-bit) installed.

Any idea how to get this sorted out? Would de- and re-installation of Firefox work?

Best!

Hello


When it comes to add-ons, then I add three of four at once or the same purpose, I try them all out, decide if I want to keep any of them, and then remove the ones I see that do not serve my target. All normal.


I know that it requires permission in order to have an add-on show in Private Browsing, that's done.

Now I had 8 add-ons on the toolbar, I disabled two or three of them so I can try two new ones. I did not like the new ones, so I just enabled the ones I had disabled, which where previously showing in the toolbar, all of this in Private Browsing having the permission of showing them.


As I enabled the add-ons again, they are not showing anymore in the toolbar..!!

Okay, I removed them and re-added them..not showing. I also did: not allow in Private Mode, then re-allowed..not showing. I simply restarted the browser in both normal and Private Mode, and yet not showing.. I also restarted my pc, and retried all previous steps again

  • This mainly happened as I removed the extension from toolbar, then added it again.

Still also 90% of the time, just disable then enable again, and only a few are showing again. Either when disabled then re-enabled or when removed then re-added*


So, what to do ?

I have the firefox browser in dark mode, and all my bookmarks/folders on the toolbar are white. It would be easier if they stood out a little easier to identify them with color (such as say trip advisor is in green so I can pick it out easier). Usually there's an icon before the name for most links (but not if it's a folder), such as google maps has a rainbow G in a white circle. If I could add an icon before the name of the link that would be great, but it would be even better if the words on different links could be another color.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

Hi everyone, i have a website where i have to delete a certain element in order for the website to display correctly. I am doing this by right-clicking on the element, selecting "Inspect Element" and then i simply click delete node and close the object browser. Since i visit that website regularly i wonder if there is any way to make the object browser to remember that i want that element to be deleted on every visit to this website? Or do i need an Addon for that?

Thank you in advance and best regards!

Hallo, I often use the 'Restore previous session'-button as I wasn't able to finish my work / reading all the stuff of the day. Some tabs I kept reopening with that function over weeks.

Unfortunately, my son opened up Firefox for searching some school info and closed it afterwards. So I cannot restore 'my' session and would have to search the history of weeks to find one quite important article. Is there a possibility of finding somewhere a sort of cache of the so-called 'pre-previous session'??? It'd quite important to me, thank you in advance for a short answer!

on a Google meeting, that is, a meeting created in Google Calendar that generates those automated Google meeting URLs:

when I share my screen, I also want my mouse cursor to be shared, because it's very useful to use it as a laser pointer so the audience in the meeting knows which part of the screen they should be looking at.

I couldn't find any feature at all within Firefox or inside the Google meeting settings [as the meeting is happening] to turn on my mouse cursor sharing.

On Chrome the mouse cursor is shared by default when someone shares their screen, which is desired behaviour.

It's a local problem with Firefox because other co-workers who have identical computers to mine use Chrome and I always see their mouse cursor when they share their screens. I'm on Windows 10.

Is this something that Firefox has the control over to turn on? Or it this outside of Firefox's controlled and controlled by Google?
