I am attempting to automate firefox updates and I am attempting to follow the guide listed below: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Software_Update:Manually_Installing_a_MAR_file When I follow those steps the update.status file simply says "failed: 75". Does anybody know the meaning of this error code? Is there a resource out there that I could find which lists the meanings of other error codes? Or am I going about this the wrong way entirely, and there is some better solution for automating firefox updates? Any help is appreciated.

In the bookmarks sidebar (Win 10 PC), when using "search bookmarks" and after typing an entry to locate, I thought that there used to be a "button" (x) in the far right of the search field that would clear any entry and return the view of bookmarks in the sidebar to that which was displayed prior to the search.

Has something changed or was I just imagining this.

If my rampant imagination is at work, please consider this a feature request

Thanks

Hello.

Current Settings: Enhanced Tracking Protection-Standard Without the Free Adblock installed.

Goal: Minimize tracking and pop-up ads from appearing during my browser session:

Please answer each question separately:

Q1. Is the Standard option sufficient or should it be set to strict?

Answer:

Q2a. Does the Standard option OR the Strict option provide the features of an ad-block or does the free Adblock needs to be installed as well in order to receive full protection?

b. When I was about to install the Free Adblock, a warning came up asking me if it was the best adblocker and confirming that the extension would have permission to access my data from all websites, extend developer tools to access my data in open tabs, display notifications to me, access my browser tabs, and access browser activity during navigation/

Do I really want to install Adblock knowing all of the above details?

I must have something set wrong on FireFox because my results of a Fold3 search will not go to the A-Z sort--it always stays on relevance. Fold3 search did go to the A-Z sort on Edge Browser so I'm hoping someone can tell me what I have set wrong on Firefox.

FF can't "find" some tabs sites without clicking several times , sometimes not even then. Started this in the last month or so... On https://www.myhealth.va.gov/mhv-portal-web/home I get the message that my browser is out of date and to update or use a different one. What I do get from the above site is a menu page that gives the same result when it loads any choices. TIA Dennis

I'm getting an Access Denied error when trying to use my health insurer's website. I have cleared all cookies and history. There is no History entry to right-click and tell it to "Forget." I have disabled my VPN and temporarily turned off both Windows Firewall and Avira security. I can access in Edge or Chrome, but I dislike both of those browsers. I've checked DNS Prefetch, Proxy setting is "No Proxy," IPv6 is disabled, and I've tried with Extensions off. What else is there left to try?

I have noticed a couple of websites I use for work not working correctly after update. I have tried on other browsers such as chrome and they work correctly. One site www.prideprovider.com will no longer allow me to hit the submit button after my information is entered. It worked before the update, but not after. I went through and deleted all history and cookies related to prideprovider and it still doesn't work. Any idea's of what might be going on?

Thanks,

Matt

Since three updates ago there are white bars on three sides of my Firefox window whenever I disable the title bar. (The bars should be visible if you open the first picture I've attached over a coloured background. The second picture shows the bars disappearing when the title bar is switched on.)

This problem persists in Safe Mode and even after a fresh installation of Firefox, so I am confident that my add-ons and themes are not the issue. The bars also show up when using the Firefox default theme, so a custom theme is not the problem either.

I have also tried, to no avail: Updating my graphics driver, changing my screen scaling, cleaning the registry. And of course simply restarting my computer.

I am at a loss as to what the issue is or how I can fix it.
