Users have desktop with "outdated browser". Automatically about 10 days past Google reformatted e mail, etc. To A slower beta google. We R dinosasauers with some things and asking the right question is everything. We want to transfer g mail to Firefox or eliminate G mail spam altogether. Is this possible?

Afternoon everyone... a couple of days ago I suddenly became unable to translate documents in google translate, (https://translate.google.com) and this occurs only using the Firefox browser, it is fine on Chrome. This is not putting text into the box, it is clicking and uploading a document for translation. The upload works fine and I see the source document on the screen, and then it just goes back to the screen with empty source box waiting for me to type into it. I don't know if anyone can help me troubleshoot this one as it might not be a problem with Firefox, but all assistance appreciated. This is happening on all my computers. I believe I have the latest Firefox version (88.0.1)

Thanks

Recently (a few days), I have noticed that math formulas are displayed as plain Latex code in a Moodle-based course viewed on my windows Firefox browser. There is no problem with other browsers and android devices. It seems to be related to the automatic update to the version 88 of the Firefox browser. Is any one else facing this problem? Does anybody know a solution?

When trying to paste text in a message window this message pops up:

"Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window."

I have no idea why and have looked all over the FF settings for something to change, but no luck.

I'm also suddenly having problems with TamperMonkey not running scripts even though it shows they are enabled.

I was able to past directly into the "Plugins" window below.

Win7 Pro, I'm the only user on PC.

Thanks.

TOP Sites on Firefox HomePage Will Not Stay or are Gone

Once again, the Top Sites that I have chosen on the the FF Home Page have shifted, or been removed. When I add them back on (and PIN) the site shortcut is there, but now I can't get the ICON that represents the Short Cut to appear and I have no idea how to find the URL for the ShortCuts, ie., the Twitter Bird that used to appear automatically, as an example.

I tried to take a Screen Shot, but the Screen Shot does not work on the FF Home Page.

Would it be too difficult to put a "Lock" button, similar to the Windows Lock for the Task Bar. PIN does NOT work.

I have not added any extensions or made any other changes that would affect this. Please advise how to correct this, and I don't want to have to follow directions that take me all over the place like go to file such and such and check such and such. That never works and usually ends up screwing up other issues. It worked once, I don't see why it doesn't work now.

Thank you for you time and I look forward to a SIMPLE solution.

I have the latest version of Firefox. The internal page colors make it impossible for me to see the text. I can change every single web page on this planet but I am unable to change the internal page colors. Surely there must be a way to change fore and background colors. Can someone offer a suggestion or better a solution??

Too much disk access by inactive Firefox... with FR 88.0 64b and Win 7 SP1

Hello, First: Sorry about my English, I use an automatic translator

I need your help !

I recently installed an SSD on my PC and I see that two of the processes of Firefox makes thousands of accesses (1 proc has max Read and 1 proc has max Write on Taskmgr !) on this disk in a few minutes.

With Procmon, I got the list of these accesses becoming annoying with an SSD : these are mostly accesses on the "customDestinations-md" and on the installation directory of Firefox (moreover under x86 while I am in 64b) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox". Even without ongoing browse.

Why are they doing this and are they really mandatory ?

I specify that I do not have a virus or malware in activity and that the option to store "recently opened programs in the Start menu" is unchecked.

How can I stop this mess other than by changing from Firefox to another browser ??? Please help ! Regards Dom

Under about:preferences#privacy there is a section 'Cookies and Site Data'. I have my settings set to CUSTOM and block all cookies. I then have managed my exceptions. I did a refresh resently, all that was lost. The best I can do currently is to have wordpad open and manually type each line out in my exceptions and then if needed in the future, I could copy and paste. There might be a better way that I do not know. I do know by default, the 'Managed Exceptions' under 'Cookies and Site Data' does not save if 'Refreshed'. Please address a better process and not my choice on blocking all cookies, thank you.
