But then there is no page formatting. I've searched and tried everything I know of. If it's a Youtube setting I can't find it. I see the playing video but below there are… (read more)

But then there is no page formatting. I've searched and tried everything I know of. If it's a Youtube setting I can't find it. I see the playing video but below there are just related videos. What's wrong? (Firefox 37.0.2)

I try to login to a site but I cannot click the Login button. When I hover over the button my cursor turns in to a 'forbidden' sign. Could not capture this in a screen shot, but see attachment for a similar image.

I cleared the cache, removed the history , disabled all add-ons an extensions. Still the same. On Chrome and IE it works ok....

When I right click, a left click is immediately fired which causes the first item to be selected. This is frustrating because the menu closes immediately.

Not sure what's going on. I tried downgrading Firefox and I tried a fresh profile. Nothing seemed to resolve this.

Initially I thought this was maybe a GTK3 issue, but I does not occur any other GTK3 application.

Any help?

Thank, Disco-Dave

Not talking about connecting to Amazon cloud and the like, it connects to a website that threw a pop-under once. Not in favorites and FF is set to start to a blank page.

Added the site to my HOSTS file to redirect to localhost, still loads but of course sending a few bytes back and forth to mypc.mydomain.local

Attached is image of what happened before modifying the HOSTS file

This is odd behaviour. Not happening with any other FF used by others in the office.

Let me add, that sporadically it also establish a connection that can't be blocked via HOSTS file as it's an IP address connection that resolves to verisondigitalmedia.com - and we're in Europe, not USA so what the...is Verizon doing showing up?

Note also, no extensions or add-ins other then UBlock Origin. Machine runs Avast and also scanned with Malwarebytes for sanity-check. All clean.

This is odd, yes?

VR

PS - Was unable to upload an image showing the connection. It automatically connects to clicktripz.com

Go ahead, say it. You reccommend another browser not repair FF. Does that mean new FF is unfixable? I can handle that if that's what you want.

I think the question is self explanatory. You recommend using a competitor's browser because you can't or won't fix the new FF. And if that is correct (as you said) I can… (read more)

After upgrade to 47 the restore tabs from previous session is no longer working. It is set correctly. What gives.

It appears as though you are attempting to make people set firefox as default browser in order to make it work which is illegal.

Please tell me that is not the ploy. I don't need a ploy to use firefox. it is my browser of choice but I am not going to be forced to chose a default browser in order to make things work.. fastest way to get me to dump the browser completely...

I have not tested this theory but it looks to be the likely reason to me as it falls right under that selection. If you now are forcing that to make all functions work than i am gone... i actually don't have a default browser for a reason... firefox is the browser of choice but won't be if this is true...

hopefully someone can email answer for me...

I installed Firefox Portable on another laptop. The first page that popped up was Urgent Firefox Update. It autodownloded a js file and opened my downloads window. I wasn't thinking, so I clicked on it. It disappeared. I went to close the firefox window and noticed the address was from India-looking webpage ending in org, I noticed this way too late.

My question is how screwed am I? Now that laptop won't run Avira or Windows Update. These are all bad signs to out and out confirmation that I have just rendered that laptop useless for the internet. I have put a lot of work into it, three partitions with Windows files on it and a Linux partition, with plans for more in the unallocated space. Each partition is about 50g in size and about two-thirds full.

I couldn't get online from the Linux partition, so of course I used the Windows one to click on this trap. I searched the Mozilla forum, but the hits were for .exe files and not this javascript one. Is Mozilla aware of this and is an undo fix available?

About every three days after everything has been working fine, the right click function on my mouse stops working on Firefox. Only Firefox, everything else is fine. I have to restart firefox to get it going again.

I have no new add-ons. It's not all the time and not every day. I believe it started with 55.0.1 update. Very quickly 55.0.2 came out and I thought ah-ha, those good people know about it and this is a fix. But the same thing still happens.

Not every day and never in the morning, just every few days and late in the day. Only on Firefox, not on Thunderbird nor on desktop icons. After restarting it all works for another couple of days and it goes again.

How to delete profiles that don't show in profile manager?

There are 2 profiles in firefox of the previous owner of the computer, who also left lots of locked and hidden material and who therefore possibly is or was hacking and or tracking me, hence I'd like to delete them. I asked him about it and he wouldn't give me a straight answer and he's fairly dodgy in a number of ways so it does rather look like he's up to no good. The two profiles don't show in profile manager via firefox.exe -P but they do show in spybot every time I run it. I uninstalled firefox, both the program and the firefox installer, to get rid of the unwanted stuff but somehow firefox does secret stuff and hides itself so even after an uninstall and running ccleaner and powering down then powering up and reinstalling firefox the dodgy profiles are still there. Firefox also managed to secretly store all my settings and then provide them again. What a tedious nuisance. How unintuitive in that evidently firefox is designed to stop you doing what you want to do, eg uninstall it and then re install a clean copy and start from scratch. This is in win7 on this computer. On my other computer with win10 I've also had lots of hours trying to get rid of 5, 11 and sometimes 17 fake profiles in firefox which avast, malwarebytes, avira and spybot couldn't get rid of. Eventually I found reset windows which seems to have got rid of the fake profiles, so far. If anyone can help re deleting the 2 profiles on the win7 machine I'd be grateful.
