Some websites report that I have an old outdated version of firefox. But this is not true. I always use the latest version in 64bit under Windows 7. One of these websites says I use Firefox 57.

I cannot get access to these sites. What may be the reason? I read this could be an outdated version of wordpress that these websites are using.

When I click on "show details" below, it also reports Firefox 57 but it is 76.0.1. What's wrong?

Background: I just had to rebuild my Linux system partition from backup.

After doing this I discovered that although most websites behave perfectly with Firefox, there is one website which now never appears in the history though I have visited the pages with no problem.

This is a problem because I use the change in color of links to the website to keep track of which pages I have visited. I have looked to see if Firefox has a list of sites which are not tracked but have been unable to find it.

PS, after the restore all my old history was restored including visits to the website which is now causing a problem.

I have Ubuntu 17.04, and my current FF is 57. I have tried updating several times without success, and now have tried the following:-

  • Downloaded FF66, and from Terminal tried to run the "updater" script, which fails with "./updater: error while loading shared libraries: libmozsqlite3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
  • I tried running the firefox from the same directory, and a FF 57 browser window appears.
  • Looked at software updater, and it showed that FF66 is installed, and when I clicked the "Launch" button, nothing happened.

I have looked for help online without success, and now hope someone will be able to help me get it running. Many thanks,

How to disable site title to left of URL

Note that I'm NOT asking about address-bar suggestions, but the address bar itself. There's a little info icon with a green lock followed by the url. Some websites (ex. the Washington Post) display a title (also in green) next to the lock and before the URL. It can be quite long, and makes the address bar inaccessible --- even for not-so-narrow windows. When this happens, there is no typeable area or visible text area to select. The only way to enter a new URL is to first navigate away using the back button (or open a new tab/window). I assume this either is very obnoxious marketing or bad configuration on the website's part. Is there a way to disable the display of anything but the lock itself? Again, to be clear, I am speaking solely of the address bar itself --- not the drop down suggestions or any other part of the browser window.

I tried disabling favicons and site icons (I figured it could be some sort of big icon), but that didn't work. Disabling extensions had no effect either --- so it's clearly firefox proper. FF 57.0.1.

Any help would be appreciated!

Cheers, Ken

Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at x.xx.xxx.xxx.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web

I just installed mint 18.3 and I'm still pretty green. I know there's a solution but I can't understand it.

_______________________ Enable touchscreen gestures

Make sure dom.w3c_touch_events.enabled is either set to 1 (enabled) or 2 (default, auto-detect).

Add MOZ_USE_XINPUT2 DEFAULT=1 to /etc/security/pam_env.conf and then logout or reboot your system for the changes to take effect.


_______________________

I'd like to know what this means (sorry for being dum), otherwise I wouldn't mind waiting if there's plans to add scrolling in future updates.

Hi, using Mac Sierra 10.13.5 on a power book.

I have tried up grading to the latest version of firefox before, but it then does not allow me to open facebook, and other web pages I use regularly?

I have tried suggestions, going into security settings etc, but only some of my pages saved in book marks ( side bar ) open?

I need to up grade, but do not want to loose these pages, and have to spend hours trying to work it out. I need a straight change over, easy, quick, with no problems.
