Hi, I planned to block my users from installing extensions/add-ons. I found an article that might be the answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1308646). I tried to create a simple policy (below), but somehow it does not work (I can still install any add-on/extension). What is wrong with my script? I'm using Firefox ESR 78.11.0 (64-bit) by the way.

My "policies.json" looks like this:

{

"policies": {
  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "*": {
      "blocked_install_message": "Blocked!",
      "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
      "installation_mode": "blocked"
    }
  }
}

Sincerely, Jonathan

https://mail.yahoo.com

When clicking on subject line in Firefox 107 page either fails to respond, will respond and render a white page, or respond and render the website chrome but not the content of the eMail.

Sometimes the page will render an email but all links, and scrolling are disable.

Only way to get page to display correctly is to press hot keys "ctrl+f5"

Have reset Firefox, attempted safe mode, and have cleared cache, happens on Windows 10, and Windows 11 (most recent service pack on each)

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

I have a large number of tabs open. I have tried closing a lot of them but whenever Firefox restarts, it reopens ALL the old tabs, including the ones which I closed individually during the previous session, ie it ognores the fact that I specifically closed some of the in the previous session. I need to reduce the number of tabs substantially but Firefox is preventing this. I am NOT a technical expert. Thanks to anyone who can help.

Until just a couple of days ago, I had been able to connect successfully with the Pinnacle Sports website dedicated for the exclusive use of customers based in Ontario Canada with my desktop computer while using the Firefox browser. For such customers, the Pinnacle Sports website requires the use of a WiFi internet connection and a GeoComply App. However, since then, I am no longer able to connect successfully with the Pinnacle Sports website with the Firefox browser, although I am still able to connect successfully with Microsoft Edge and Chrome, etc. Thus far, neither, Pinnacle Sports nor GeoComply App Support has been able to tellme what might have changed over the last few days with the Firefox browser, in order to bring this problem about, so I thought I might be able to get some help with this situation from Mozilla Firefox Support. Might you be able to identify the source of this recent problem? And, perhaps, provide a solution that will allow the use of the Firefox browser with the Pinnacle Sports website for customers based in Ontario Canada, moving forward? Thank you.

Hi there! Been using Firefox for more than 10 years and yesterday it started to work very slowly. I tried refreshing and restarting the computer but the problem persisted. I look at task manager and it was using 90% of my computer's memory. Naturally I looked online and tried using Firefox in Troubleshoot mode. This resolved the issue so I refreshed Firefox and disabled every add-on only to find that the problem was still there. It seems that some tabs are using too much memory almost instantly. For example, I had gmail open and it used 2gb in 1 minute.

I'm attaching some screenshots and files that may work. Would love to know how to resolve this!
