I use the firefox browser with my macos big sur. I disabled the spell check, but I keep on seeing red underlines when I type in the search bar. I thought when spell check is disabled, this should not be possible. (excuse my English). How can I get rid of the red underlines?

Hello ,

I am not able to run flash player , it is giving error "shockwave flash is known to be vulnerable and should be updated" but "update now" does not work. Flash stopped working after 12 Jan 2021.

I have reinstalled firefox ( fresh installation - version 84.0.2 ) and uninstalled flash player using "uninstall_flash_player" , again installed install_flash_player after closing all browsers. Still it does not work. Please find attached images.

Is there any way to fix the issue ?

shockwave flash version - NPSWF64_32_0_0_324.dll

Thank you

Hi I know I have asked this before, but it is still something I want to do. I want to prevent Firefox from automatically updating itself. I know there is a box for this in options but this doesn't prevent automatic updates: a known issue. I have tried all manner of about: config settings registry edits etc. but I still cannot prevent Firefox from updating. As Firefox apparently cannot update without removing all my settings addins etc. it becomes more and more like I am having to hold its hand each and every time. Gone are the days when software worked for you, now you have to sist back and continually waste time restoring settings and addins: but only if Firefox decides they remain of use, whether I want them or not. I then have to either start from scratch by manually reinstalling them, or find another as Firefox no longer lists them. I find this "we know better than you " attitude is unnacceptable. Does anyone else share my thoughts that software should do what the end user wants it to and not what the provider wants?

Firefox apparently has a new print feature that is intended to replace the print dialog box. I would like to know how to turn it off. It is a good try. My printing off the web usually involves only selected pages, i.e. not All pages. With the new Firefox feature, I don't like having to click on All, then click on Custom, then select pages to print. I would much prefer using the system dialog box where I can just immediately enter pages, 2-3 for example, and print. Edge has this same printing issue, too many clicks to do the simple task of printing only specified pages.

Since the last Firefox update, 84.0.2, I lose my menu bar. Ever since I started using Firefox in Windows, I have the menu bar active. This bar is very useful to me. Now with the new update, it is gone whenever I start Firefox new. I have tried resizing Firefox for Windows using the opposite arrows but the menu bar will not come back. I right click on the tabs bar and it show the menu bar checked. I can shut Firefox down and restart with the menu bar showing. This only happens on any new start of Firefox. Is there any way to prevent Firefox from not displaying my menu bar? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. rcarrow53

I'm looking for an extension that I presume exists, but I'm not able to find it: I want to rate websites in the way photo apps allow you to rate your photos, i.e. assign a number of stars to them.

Like https://mozilla.org ★★★★☆

One use case: I'm comparing products where I don't necessarily find something so good that I can come to conclusion now, so I need a way to save it.

Do you know such an extension or have good ideas how to search it?

I have a web-based app which I use firefox to open. I use multiple tabs like for opening and printing pdf & having multiple modules from the web-based app. The issue is some users are clicking on the firefox icon even though firefox is open & it opens another session or window of Firefox. What I would like if someone clicks on the Firefox icon and it is already open to just display that session of firefox that is open & not open a new window/session. My issue is we have 5 and 6 different windows for the same web app & it's causing some issues. All links should open in a new Tab which they do now but if I can find a way to stop firefox opening twice it will solve my issue.

Since 2016 i've been using firefox on PC and i've been perfectly content with it until a few minutes ago I discovered this annoying blemish that i'd rather not have in my menu bar when browsing, except I can't delete, alter, or move it in any feasible way because I want my 'more' folder to be visible for easy access. Has anyone been able to remove this? Help would be much appreciated.

I have posed this question under "Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems," and under "Other," and have not gotten a single response. So I am trying it again here.

This is a major glitch, and I am surprised that no one else is dealing with it too!

Is there anyone who works for Mozilla who monitors these forums who can help?
=========

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

Addon windows in the Overflow menu are limited or fixed in size and therefore some addon functions are inaccessible or hard to use. Usually I would just middle-click to scroll sideways but with some addons this is not possible (eg. LastPass only shows the "Upgrade to Premium" part and nothing else if it is in the Overflow menu). I love the minimalist black&white look of my current Firefox setup so having the red LastPass icon outside of the Overflow menu would ruin that. Other addons just look bad with all that extra white space, like Windscribe (which should have a very small Addon window).

Is there some way to change the size of the addon window or report this as a bug to have it behave like addons should?

I use Firefox for work and I have a site that has a pop up window that shows me alerts. When I use this site on Edge or Google the site makes either a sound or blinks in the taskbar or both. On Firefox I cannot get it to do either of those. The site seems to work best in Firefox but I need an alert sound or visual to let me know there is an item for me to review. I have gone into settings and tried to change things to make this happen with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey there!

We have error logs being created fairly regularly for user(s?) with a particular Firefox extension. We are trying to identify this extension to determine the cause. I know a reverse-lookup (ID to name) service exists for Chrome extensions. Is there something similar for Firefox extensions? Thus far, I haven’t been able to find one.

The extension ID/source in question is: moz-extension://ba9d01f7-5cbf-442b-94bf-f030a6fdc626/scripts/uninterrupt.js

Any insight that can be provided would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

(I originally posted this in the discourse forum, but this forum appeared to have a larger audience, so my apologies for the blatant cross-post... but I'm kind of at a loss here.)
