Good afternoon!

After an update has occurred in my Debian 10, Firefox now recognizes only the US English keyboard layout. in short, I can not type anything with accent. My keyboard layout is "Brazilian Portugueses ABNT 2" and now I have to go looking for where the necessary keys are. And even finding the location of the keys still can not put the appropriate accents in words. For now, I only detected this problem in Firefox. Constantly, I use GEdit and Libreoffice and both work well. including, so that the text of this situation, I'm posting here, get all cute with sharp words and so on, had to do everything in GEdit, copy and paste here on this site.

For if I did not do so could not emphasize the words. I believe the problem is in Firefox, then I downloaded the latest version on the site yesterday (03/27/2020), the 74.0 version, but it doesn't works too. I configured Firefox language to Brazilian Portuguese, but it doesn't work tool.

The operating system is all right, because, as mentioned above, the other softwares are seeing the correct layout of the keyboard (Brazilian Portuguese ABNT 2). If anyone has any hint of what might be done to the Firefox pass to see the keyboard layout set in the operating system and can post here, will be of great help. Therefore, I did not want to install another browser.

Beforehand, thank you!

Hi,

I cannot find the way to remove the Adblock Plus extension for the life of me. It says "Can't be removed". I re-started in Safe-Mode, and it still cannot be removed. I did Firefox's "fresh re-install" thing, which is supposed to remove all extensions, and it's still there. Should I report the extension? Help.

Thanks

I had a thing happen that surprised me:

  1. Open private window
  2. Download a file (slow enough to give time for testing)
  3. Open "Downloads" (becomes a tab in private mode, filling the main browser window)
  4. Close any other private tabs
  5. Close "Downloads" tab
  6. Downloads are terminated without query

My expectation was that the user would be queried in some way.

Today I switched the Firefox Sync account from old one to new one (just personal hobby, won't use the old e-mail anymore). I received this message: "The confirmation email we sent to ******@********* was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data. If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account." because the new e-mail was inactive for 48hrs so. It was my bad, I registered the new e-mail to Firefox Sync not long after it was made, so I have to wait for 48hrs till it is usable (provider's policy). Err... I'm not sure if the e-mail I wrote got auto-censor or not, so I censored it myself. I can give it to you whom concern later, if necessary. But I don't get the point here. How can you protect my Firefox data if it is just a whole new account that even not login successfully first time, still waiting for e-mail verification?

Hi All

some pages like this one are wide enough to have a horizontal left/right scroll bar.

https://trello.com/b/3OtE8BCR/brizy-wordpress-public-roadmap

If I'm lucky, when I want scroll left or right, the cursor is on a piece of HTML where it can move when I use the left or right arrow keys. However often, the cursor isn't available or the right place.

Is there a key or key combo where I can shift the web page left or right in the FF window? I often find it difficult to use the horizontal scrollbar with the mouse.

All of my saved passwords are gone. the password manager window is empty. i use the extension 'bookmark backup' to backup my saved passwords... key3.db cert8.db signons.sqlite signons3.txt and signons2.txt. i have one week worth of backups. i tried replacing those five files in my profile directory with each of the seven backups, and none of the backups will produce my passwords. i can see encoded information in signons3.txt but that file is very old and doesn't have my most recent saved passwords that the sqlite file has, so going back to that version is not an option.

I just upgraded to Firefox 3.6.8 and now every time I try to watch a video on a site like youtube the screen is black and it says 'an error occurred, please try again later.' But when I tried with a different browser called Galeon it played. If I clear the cache and then refresh the page it will play using Firefox, but isn't there a way to fix this? If it's a bug, when will a patch be out? Side Note: I use Ubuntu Linux, if that makes a big difference.

Issue

I have a problem with my bookmarks, cookies, history or settings

Description

Recently installed Google Xmarks and immediately lost any star bookmark functionality. Any new bookmarks I try to create are given the title of the last previous webpage I tried to create (which wouldn"t be a major issue only a nuisance to copy & paste the correct name in) but ALL new bookmarks are directed to some version of "http://ad.yieldmanager.com/iframe3?sI" instead of the correct site. Have diablrd and then uninstalled Xmarks but the problem remains. Use the latest version of Firefox for Linux Ubuntu 9.04. Thanks.

Firefox is set to "NEVER REMEMBER HISTORY" but if I go to Ford.ca, which uses java, I must enter a postal code to have access to information about "Price & Build". Said postal code remains accessible by Ford.ca... even days after my visit, while I understand that "Private Browsing" should supposedly prevent such situation. Firefox 3.6.6-1.2 came with the newest openSuse 11.3 release. The same situation prevails with our other computer running under openSuse11.2 and daily kept up to date. A solution to this problem would be greatly appreciated!

I just installed Linus Freespire on a PC that Windows XP had crashed on, and happy to have it take on a new life. When I tried to browse myspace.com, I was forced to upgrade to Firefox 3.6 and downloaded it. It said it went to the desktop, but don't see it there. Instead I get a KArchiver window with Firefox-3.6.6.tar-1 in it. I have tried screwing around with it and its "wizard" until I am about ready to trash the whole thing. Can someone tell me what i need to do to upgrade Firefox 2.0.0.6 to Firefox 3.6.6 besides getting another degree? It would be nice if there where some hints.

[Apologies, I clicked the wrong URL and shut the previous thread by mistake.]

I have FF 3.6.6 randomly crashing when I am not even doing anything. I have two websites open normally, neither of them uses Flash or any adobe plug-ins. One auto-refreshes content every few minutes, but it is text and basic JPG/GIF graphics (run by JavaScript I presume). The other site does nothing if I take no actions. But several times a day, FF just shuts down silently.

I am running on linux Mint 9 KDE Edition.

about:crashes says the URL is invalid. ~/.mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/ doesn't exist; ~/.mozilla/firefox/ contains a single file called .profiles.ini - nor could I find a folder by that name in any of the directories related to FireFox.
