Greetings,

Firefox isn't offering to save passwords for a site. Does it respect "autocomplete=off" in the password input field?

Thanks, Shane.

The solution below no longer works. My current version of Firefox is 64.0.2

When did this problem start for you?

On Mac, Firefox 56 ratcheted up the security sandbox, limiting which files pages can use on your system. This apparently prevents Firefox from using font files in a "suitcase" or "Adobe Type 1" format. The developers are aware of this and some fixes were made in Firefox 57, but they might have missed some font types or unexpected font file locations.

To see whether this is the problem, and as a temporary workaround, you can reduce the sandbox security level back to what it was in Firefox 52-55 as follows:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste sand and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the security.sandbox.content.level preference and change the value from 3 to 1 and click OK

That change won't take effect until the next time you quit and restart Firefox

How can I move/delete bookmarks from Other Bookmarks by tag (without duplicating/deleting those that have been successfully sorted)?

I've started the slow process of sorting my bookmarks -or at least the ones that I remembered to tag when I created them- out of "other bookmarks". Unfortunately, while I can go into the Library window, select a tag, select all the items with that tag, and hit CTRL + X, doing this still only seems to copy the bookmark (despite graying it out like it knew what CTRL + X was supposed to do). Now I have duplicates, and deleting them presents equally probably-a-bug problems. Even if I figure out which duplicate is the "old" bookmark under the tag (such as by renaming them and checking which one was added to the target folder), deleting it deletes both. The best workaround I've been able to figure out is to temporarily change the target URL of the one I'm about to delete, since, as I correctly deduced (thanks @mybrain), it's deleting based on the target. Is there any better workaround, or should I report this as a bug (as I was going to do anyway) and hope for a fix? Also, where would the best place to make that report be?

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and have downloaded Firefox a number of times (each time doing a clean uninstall with Revo uninstaller), but cannot get Firefox to run at all. Each time I put in a search I immediately get the 'Gah. your tab just crashed' message. I've done a Windows crash report on the latest event and this was the result:

Hi, so external links will not populate on my college webpage (they're like buttons to the external page I'm supposed to turn stuff into). It forces me to use another browser just for schoolwork, which is rather annoying. Attached is what it SHOULD look like (on Safari) whereas all that's on the firefox version is the title of the assignment and the clickable link, but not the the button where I ACTUALLY submit my assignment.

The option to disable upgrade notices has been removed. :(

I even tried putting "user_pref("app.update.enabled", false);" back into prefs.js.

Given my use pattern, it is impossible for me to upgrade between reboots (when I do reboot, I always upgrade to the latest version).

The popups are interfering with some of my automated processes (by opening and raising windows that shouldn't exist).

How do I stop them?

Hi guys, I've had this problem for a few months now on both my laptop and desktop. It only happens when using firefox and doesn't seem to affect other browsers. When trying to navigate google images with the arrow keys (with 1 image selected as the hero image in the middle) that the arrow keys only work sporadically. They might work for moving to the next 2 images then stop working, then if i click with the mouse they'll navigate 1 image across then not work again. I have to browse through images every day and this is putting a huge brake on how fast I can do my job. Any chance someone has come across this before as I can't really find anything on it?? Cheers

This has been a dance that has been done since long before Quantum. UI geniuses decide that tabs should be on top, users demand it back on the bottom, someone provides an option to do so, then UI geniuses decide that they don't care and break that fix.

I would think that someone would decide to take care of these users and provide a configurable option. I have been a Mozilla family user since 1994 with Netscape, and it is getting harder and harder. Now it breaks between Quantum 64 and 65! With apparent heavy roadblocks to modifying chrome to handle.

Firefox 64.0.2 x64 running on windows 10 ent x64.

When closing firefox I get spurratic BSOD. The minidump says it is firefox related. This does not happen on my 3 other pc's/laptops running the same version(just different OS's). I have tried a refresh of firefox, a memtest of my pc, disabling as many add-ons as I deem necessary.

I cannot reproduce the issue at will as it is random. Nothing in the event viewer during that time of crash. NO firefox crash logs are created.
