Hi,

I have installed Firefox on my second machine at work, and I find it impossible to use it as it does not connect to many of my company's services, but also on many mainstream sites.

For example, when I try to load sites like theguardian.com I get a window with the warning: "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue", for others like nytimes.com the message reads "Warning:Potential Security Risk Ahead". The lists of sites where these happens is long.

The thing is that on my other machine at work these sites are working perfectly. I have just loaded Firefox on the new machine, I have not added any extensions or plugins yet.

I am about to loose the old work PC, and it would be a shame if on my new machine I had to use Chrome!

Any help is appreciated Thanks Alex

PS I am writing this from my own laptop and not from the work PC

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-adobe-flash says Firefox 84 still supports Flash. Yet on some learning websites that use Flash still, like alison.com but it doesn't really matter where right, it shows this where the flash app should be and all blank white around it: (see "capture" screenshot below)

And I can't click on it nor is there a pop-up bar nor a little plugin icon at the beginning of the URL / address box to click on.

How do i enable it?

I found this: (see "extensions,plugins,shockwave_flash" screenshot) Am I close? :)

Thanks for the solution

If you see devices listed multiple times (and you're sure that it is the same device) in the Devices & apps list, click the Disconnect button next to that device to remove it.

MY QUESTION: What if I am NOT SURE it is the same device? Thank you

new print preview window

My TWO questions concern this web page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-print-web-pages-firefox

1) The web page mentions a new print menu in Firefox version 82. I have version 84.02 installed. The web page above shows "this improved print menu" under the heading "Print a web page." PLEASE NOTE: the "improved print menu" shown does NOT have a Simplify Page option. That option was on the old print menu. What happened to the Simplify Page option?

2) I have tried the "alternative instructions" shown on the web page above but that alternative does NOT give me the old "Print preview settings" shown. Instead, carefully following the "alternative instructions" gives me the same "improved print menu" mentioned above. Why does following the "alternative instructions" give me the new print menu and not the old print menu (which DOES have the Simplify Page option)?

Thank you.

We are facing an issue with Mozilla Firefox when we try to deliver it via Application Virtualisation where the browser tabs continue to crash. We have tried launching this in safe mode and the issue continues. Is there anything else we can do to troubleshoot this issue? or has anyone else experienced this issue?

We are experiencing a second issue where when we try sequencing Firefox with Adobe Flashplayer via AppV, the published application will not show the flash plugin in the firefox options screen. We can see that flashplayer has successfully installed within the AppV package but it seems to be failing to acknowledge the files in the browser. Has anyone experienced anything similar to this?

Thanks

Hi,

Text in " " is translated to English from Danish. I hope the translation is close enough for you to follow.

I used to: - Right click an image on a website - Chose "Show Image Information" to get to the "Media" tab in the "Page Info" window to download a couple of images from a website. Lately this function is not behaving as it used to do.

Now - Selecting more images from the list in the "Media" tab - Click "Save As" - Chose a download folder - Click "Select Folder" doesn't work at all. Nothing seems to happen, not even an error message appears.

Is this function broken in the newer versions of Firefox, or is it just my installation experiencing this? I'm using Firefox ver. 84.0.2 (64-bit), Windows 8.1, Plugin * Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0

Best Regards Mr. Longgaard

Hi,

              I have problem with mi web browser (Mozilla). I start PC and browser before 10 minutes and i figured that deleted all my history, bookmarks, all remembered logins (names, passwords), and just everything. It looks like I have installed a brand new web browser. I think it will be some new update or something like that.

Thank you for your help.

everyday firefox is no longer compatible with more and more government, bank and corporate web sites

Is firefox deliberately making sure it is no longer compatible with web sites ? every time it is updated i can add web sites to the list of no longer compatible web sites. and they are not changing, so the issue is with firefox. I see in the about us, Firefox is braging about their collaboration with Ford Foundation, omidyar network, color of change and consumers international and ford foundation even referred to it as a match made in heaven. How ever how can screwing up every day of the week be a good thing or heaven ? How is it these ' people ' think their of any help at all ? The issue with the usps OIC portal issues was never fixed, then it was several banks and credit card company's, now it is home depot corporate log in [ not homedepot.com ] also the apple icloud issue, with some hidden page command that causes the courser to no longer work when viewing pictures. So I am wondering how a bunch of deliberate screw ups can brag about how their making it ' better' by making the web browser no longer compatible with high security web sites then trying to say the issue is with them is not good, helpful, or even a step forwards.

So now the only work around is fire fox has to be abandoned as a joke junk web browser and all of those web sites can only be accessed by google chrome.

I'm not sure if it is firefoxs new so called clown high security, how ever forcing users to go to a different web browser is not more security , it is a deliberate screw up, like making a car that breaks down when you drive it out of your driveway and calling it safer as it can not get into a accident if you can not drive it.

and just so that we are crystal clear for years I have run computers on line with NO anti virus or malware protection, yet my computer does not get infected, but how can that be ? the answer is simple, people are morons that do stupid things that cause their computers to be infected, if your IQ was higher then a bug you would not have all of the issues your all having. So what do you do ? you change the browser thinking it is going to protect you from your selfs, when the problem is not with the browser its with you the users.

So how are all of your continuous changes that cause the web browser to no longer function properly a help at all ?
