One main reason I am asking about this is because I have to download screenshots for a group I'm in and organise tables etc... For every photo added of games played, results etc... I don't get to see the relevant information I need to be able to download it.

I've tried uploading 2 pictures to here to show what I mean but they won't upload either even though they are under 1mb. Basically, when you click on any picture on facebook, you get a distorted version of that picture, or, there are no options available for downloading it etc.. When I access the same pictures on Chrome, I can like it, download it etc...and everything else is also listed, so I don't understand how Firefox isn't showing any of it.

As both browsers are on this same computer, both upto date etc..., does anyone have any idea why Firefox isn't showing everything ?

Your help would be appreciated immensely as this really is doing my head in :(

I frequently watch Fox News Channel live on Firefox in Windows 10. The FNC player no longer works on Firefox 52 and 53, so I have been using MS Edge to watch FNC. I think the problem may have started with Firefox 52. I would prefer to use Firefox for all my browsing.

I understand the newest version of Firefox offers support for WebP images, which is cool and great... but not when I need to download those images for use on my computer. As an artist I need to be able to save things as .jpg or .png for my art programs (or even preview) to be able to open them. Is there any way to make this an option, or to not default to webp when saving images?

I've also tried changing the extension on the file using the "all files" option but it just corrupts the file and won't open them.

I see million or more stupid threads about favicons not showing on firefox, but in other browsers work perfectly fine. This has been going for many years, and mozilla can't get it working right? What the crap? After so many people complaining about it. They won't do anything to make it work like all the other browsers. Now, that is pathetic as all can get. That is pretty much the only thing that bugs me, is they will not fix that right.

Besides that problem. I love firefox. If they are not going to fix this problem with firefox not refreshing after closing page or tab and opening it like all other browsers, then I will just never use firefox again, because there is just no excuse for after all these years to not have that work like all the other browsers for the favicon. Makes no sense for that to be default in the browser. Favicons are for a reason, and that is not putting the fix off so they won't be used by your firefox users. Mind boggling that it has gone this long without the firefox browser working right with favicons. Making us spend hours trying to get it to work, is just plain dumbest thing ever. Even with this complaint, its never going to be fixed. If they haven't fixed it yet after this many years, then it will never get fixed. I am not spending any more stupid time on something that should be default in firefox.

Closing as duplicate please continue with open thread /questions/982984?page=2#answer-527488 ~J99


I'm not even sure why I'm bothering this, as I can already anticipate the answers (i.e. try safe mode, create a new profile, clear cache, etc...), but whenever I try to access a Facebook page, I almost always get a hang and then a script error. I've tried all the "fixes" above and then some including experimenting with add-ons/plugins to see if any of those were the problem, and to no avail. This also happens alot with ANY kind of page that has an embedded Facebook "like" button. That includes A LOT of sites, these days, so I'm constantly getting script errors during my Facebook sessions.

Anyone (regular users) else have this issue and have any creative solutions, or is Firefox simply sucky at properly rendering basically anything that has to do with Facebook? I see that this issues seems to be completely ignored in each "upgrade" of the browser. The only thing that even half-way works is QuickJava, but as I'm sure users of this extension know, that can completely render hyperlinks unusuable, so you're constantly having to switch it on and off during loading of pages.

I really just want this here for documentation purposes.

I do not know why they will no longer load. I go to a machine that has version 28.0 on it and they load just fine. So it has me confused as to how to get it to work again in this version.

Thanks Jay

I am a privacy aware user which uses Firefox since many years. I didn't have to set up an account until now. Then i came across this warning site, stating i am forced to enable cookies and local storage in order to register.

I don't think this settings are vital for a registration process so why does Firefox enforces them?

sincerely, a concerned user.

I was running Firefox 3 on my system (do not remember which specific version now), and due to all the nags about that version being out of date, I decided it was finally time to upgrade. I installed v25, and suddenly found I could not load web pages. I tried all the support documents I could find, but none of them helped. I installed v24 instead, but same issue.

I removed Firefox and installed using 3.6.17, which I had downloaded previously just in case of problems with the upgrade, and Firefox works again. I have not tried any versions in between yet, so I do not know which version these issues start with, but I know it is tied to 24 and 25 at least.

I'm on Linux, and updated to Firefox 66 yesterday. I was looking forward to the new feature that disallows websites auto-playing videos. But I found that it's not the case. For example, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/how-an-extra-man-in-cockpit-saved-a-737-max-that-later-crashed still starts playing the video automatically. This is just one of the many I've tried so far.

Am I missing any settings? There was none I could find having done a quick search on the preference page.

Also are we shooting ourselves in the foot, giving a warning and effectively blocking our own troubleshooter app.

P.S. And is there a bug filed for warnings about outdated Flash on Linux. I have not checked

Instead of emoticons, Firefox is showing me blank spaces all over Facebook (chat, status updates, comments etc.). I've tried to clean all data, I've restarted it, and it doesn't help. Only thing that's helping is when I downgrade to version 29, so it must be a bug. Currently, I'm using version 33.1.1, the latest one, on 64bit Windows 8.1.

Emoticons work properly on other browsers (IE, Chrome, Opera).
