I have AVAST running on my computer in passive mode; I simply have not bothered to remove it, fearing screwing something up. Now, AVAST has stripped all my saved passwords from FIREFOX. Can I load these back into Firefox from my renegade AVAST?

When trying to access Norton support by selecting help and then support I get the following error: 520 - Web server received an invalid response while acting as a gateway or proxy server. I can access the page with Edge. This is on a new lap top with Norton and Fire Fox installed. Everything else in Norton seems to be working fine. My desktop also has Norton and Fire Fox and I have no problem accessing the page with fire fox on the desk top. Help!!

A lot of websites are difficult to use when they track, and I'd rather access them only in incognito mode. Is there a way to create a list of websites that only open in incognito (preferably just automatically launching an incognito window)? If not, can I request it as a feature?

I'd also like to create a blacklist for websites from appearing in highlights on my homepage. Can I do that? If not can I request it as a feature?

Thanks so much!

As of a few months ago I had 5 Firefox shortcuts pinned to my Windows 10 taskbar. One pointed to plain old Firefox and opened to my default home page, the other four pointed to specific websites a la this archived thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1170305 I could add and remove them as I pleased and have as many as I wanted. It was fantastic--one click access to my most frequented sites.

In January 2018 two of the pinned taskbar icons to specific sites disappeared. I'm not sure why only those two, and I can't re-pin them. Here's an example of the problem: 1) I create two new desktop shortcuts that respectively point to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -url https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -url https://calendar.google.com/calendar/r?tab=mc For convenience I also change their icons. 2) I try clicking and dragging the Gmail shortcut to the taskbar but Windows won't let me pin it 3) I right click the Gmail shortcut but the option in the menu is to "Unpin from taskbar". Clicking that unpins the plain old pinned Firefox shortcut from my taskbar. 4) I right click the Gmail shortcut again and this time I have the option to "Pin to taskbar". I click it and it works! hurray. 5) I right click the Google Calendar shortcut and it says "Unpin from taskbar". Clicking that unpins the Gmail shortcut...

Basically, it's as if Windows recently became aware that all of these are Firefox shortcuts and is forcing me to choose at most 1 Firefox shortcut to pin.

All 5 shortcuts--including the two that disappeared--are all still in the pinned-to-taskbar Windows folder: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

Any workarounds out there?

I just switched to Firefox from Chrome and so far Im loving it, except for one tiny bit, which unfortunatly drives me crazy:

When I use the search from the adress bar to look up functions with dots '.' in them, Firefox always assumes these are websites, add 'www.' and takes me to ' Site could not be loaded' instead of using google to search.

Is there any way to change this behaviour in the adress bar?

Hi, I use firefox as main browser for developing and I got problem with its cache.

changes in code are not visible automatically, firefox keeps files in chache. So it happens, that I make some change and it takes long time, when the effect show. I am now compensating it by Test pilot Containers modules, but it is not much comfortable, to have one page loaded 5 times and after any small change trying to refresh all tabs, if some of them will reload propertly.

Also, I know the CTRL+F5 and CTRL+SHIFT+R shortcuts, but it does nothing. It will not do the clean reload, it again takes cached files.

So, any other shortcut/way, how to force a tab to get purely loaded from server?

Thanks :)

I used to cbe able to check the result of html code by using firefox private browsing page. It was so useful as I could see exactly what i was aiming to achieve, and make amendments. I have either forgotten how to use this, or you no longer have this facility where I can find it. Please advise how I can use this facility now. Your private page looks completely different to the one I used to use.

Firefox seems to apply my personal windows settings for colour, that's not what I want or ask for. What to do?

hi, Hopefully I can explain my question clearly. I use a WIndows 10 computer with personal settings for high contrast (colours) and Firefox brower for webmail. The problem is that receivers of my e-mails receive the messages in light colours. The colours of the text that they see is exactly the same as the textcolour on my computer. I'm wondering why my personal settings are used for outgoing messages. Changing the coloursettings in firefox seems not to work. Hope that anyone knows how to send mails with dark text?

Does Firefox allow me to save a web page WHILST ALSO RETAINING THE LINKS Please let me know how this can be done.

I already have a virtual PDF Printer that redirects to PDF output. However this does not save links in the PDF output. Any advice appreciated.

Note: I wish to save LOCAL as well as web content. Most of the pdf products I have seen just allow the saving of URL's. Raphael

only when I'm playing Farmville 2 (FV2)

my flash plug-in uses 97% of my 'physical memory' and crashes my game.

I have 4gigs of RAM. I've checked for viruses,worms,etc. That's not the problem. I get updates regularly. I have to keep my task manager open all the time to monitor the climb from 29% - to 97%+ of my physical memory.

Everything else runs fine - videos, streaming, YouTube, movies.... but my FV2 always crashes when it climbs up that high (of course). What to do to fix this?
