Pop Ups Being Blocked even though I have turned off Pop Up Blocking in Firefox I don't have any extensions blocking popups I don't have any permissions blocking popups. I'm using latest version of Mozilla, just updated today. I'm about ready to delete Mozilla and use something else. In fact, I have to use other browsers just to get my bank reports, etc. How frustrating!

Like the title states, whether it be the search bar, url bar or any other text field the first key stroke of input is not registered and doesn't display. Once I've begun to type the missed stroke happens and then all is fine until I pause typing for around 30 seconds then the missed stroke happens again, otherwise I can continually type with no issues. This began a couple months ago and I assumed it was the old keyboard I was using so I bought a new one and the problem still persists. This issue is exclusive to Firefox and no other program or browsers on Windows 10. Firefox is fully updated, Version 94.0.2 (64-bit) at the time of writing this. I have "refreshed" Firefox and removed all add-ons etc. and the problem still exists. Thanks.

Hello, After one of the last updates of november I started having 20-50 processes for each firefox profile that I use. In previous versions I used 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart' and 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2' and set them to false, to limit the number of processes. But now, even though I removed these configurations, I have no option to control how much RAM and processes firefox uses - the option to set the content processes is missing from the settings page too. Another thing that I noticed is that for some reason, in most of my profiles, container tabs can't be enabled.

Hope you can help, Rotem.

After reading up on procedures (but failing to follow links), I decided to completely delete all my passwords. Let me back up a minute, last week I downloaded the .csv file of my passwords, because after 10 or 12 years, I needed to clean them up. I had 486 saved passwords, out of which I deleted all but 123. I did not want to try that in the browser, actually I did, but after about 20 I gave up because I realized how long it would take.

So anyway, I got ready to finish up, and I deleted my browser copy, then tried to upload the corrected copy. However every time I get an error "Something went wrong try again". So as my plan was, I deleted my Chrome passwords (they should be the same), then uploaded the corrected copy. It said "Upload successful" or somethiing like that, I waited five minutes, for Chrome to finish syncing and all that, then tried to import from Chrome, it imported 3 passwords.

But now, here's the big problem, I follow the directions I have found in this site, but once I click the hamburger, the next link does not exist. When I go another way, none of the links exist. I have searched all over the settings pages, and nowhere is there the option to upload a .csv file, I can import from another browser all day, but not upload. So what's going on?

Since upgrading to FF 94.0.2, I cannot logon to Chase Online Banking. The site texts me a code which I then enter and receive a message that part of the site does not seem to be working. If I use Edge, I can get in without a problem. I went into troubleshooting mode and it let me logon without a problem, but returning to normal mode repeats the problem. Using private mode does not work either. I'm not sure what is going on here and any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am unable to log onto investor.vanguard.com using Firefox. It has worked fine until last week. I confirmed the username/password are correct (they work fine on my phone app and using the Microsoft browser). I contacted Vanguard and they said they have not had any reported issues on the website.

When I click on the LOGON icon, a blue halo appears around the icon, but I cannot complete the logon. All other icons on the home page work properly on Firefox, but the LOGON does not. Deleting cookies did not help.

Are other Firefox users experiencing this on Vanguard, and if so, is there a fix?

In the last few days, I started having multiple web sites blocked with "SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE". They work fine with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, and I trust them. One example is http://www.wumb.org, a public radio station. I found nothing in Firefox Help to bypass this security flag and go to the page.

If there is a work-around, please make it show up when searching for SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE in Firefox Help. If there is no work-around, please add one. Otherwise, Firefox, my favorite browser, will quickly get a bad reputation.

On this site: https://www.orange.pl/twojekonto/zaloguj I can't force firefox to remember username (no problem with remembering password on next step). In older Firefox without WebEx there was addon which allowed to manipulate forms to prepare proper autocompletion data. This addon is not supported with WebEx anymore due to lack of proper functions. Instead Firefox Dev Team claims that mechanism built in current Firefox is enough for such tasks and mentioned addons are not needed. Seems it is wrong thinking.

I tried different approaches to save username for mentioned site but without success.

I am having to clear the Firefox cache multiple times on UPS tracking page in order to get it to work. I can track one package, but if I try another, the page says: We are unable to complete your tracking request at this time. Please try again later." This response will not change until I clear the data and cache and start over. Having to try and troubleshoot web pages is time consuming and annoying. If it is a trusted site, why can it not just work?

This is a recent issue - none of the other browsers I use are having this problem, but I really don't want to start using multiple browsers just to get through my day. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

There are several requests similar to mine, mostly about Windows 7 (i have windows 10). I made sure the "general settings" within Adobe were set to use Acrobat as default, and i set firefox options (as near as i could tell) to save my pdf's with Adobe acrobat also. However, ALL my files - both already saved and new pdf's - now are listed as filetype "Firefox HTML.pdf" and all have the html icon. For my husband's business, we have to fill out state forms in pdf and forward copies to them and to clients. My clients are frustrated and confused that they cannot recognize the pdf's i sent by the original icons, and some don't seem to understand how to open the "html" files i send them (most of our clients probably use other browsers: when they showed up as straight adobe files this was never a problem) I need to fix BOTH my stored pdf forms AND new fillable forms from the state as filename.pdf with the adobe icon.
