Hi, I would like to ask a question about one of the add-on's for Mozilla browser, it's about FVD Speed Dial. I did not save any speed dials I did have. it worked normally all day, and suddenly I cannot use it nor save my settings to import to another speed dial because it's disabled by Mozilla for security reasons I will attach a screenshot. Is there any way I can recover my speed dial? Are they located on my PC by any chance, I cannot find them in any Mozilla folders? Would be really great if you could help me with this.

Thank you. Violeta

Neither my wife nor I can sign in to our G-mail accounts through Firefox on this computer. We have no problem signing in with either account through another computer. When clicking "Sign in," we get a page related to cache and cookies.

I have gone through the steps to delete "cache & cookies" for MY gmail account with no change in behavior. (My wife did not want me to remove hers because she believes (probably correctly) that her password memory on the PC would be erased!

I suspect we'll have to remove ALL google info from this computer, but don't know how to go about it. The only "App" listed with a google name is Google Chrome.

Suggestions? Remove and reinstall Firefox? Ditto Chrome? (Running Firefox 94. something.) I'd like to see her stick with Firefox, but this is a real barrier.

Hello, i've recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox. However, I am someone who enjoys playing games in their browser. And it occured to me, that firefox seemingly lags and stutters whenever i try to play a game.

The two games i have tested are Zombs Royale and Wormax IO. These are two very minimalistic games with nothing much to them. The slowest computers can handle them...

I have a GTX 1080, with 12 gb of rams. I also tested on my laptop, which has unknown specs, but 4gb of ram.

Both devices performed worse then how they would perform in chromium based browsers. I wish to stick with firefox, as i hear security is a virtue with Mozilla, and Chrome really just wants to steal your data.

I might add, that i did follow a couple steps to make my browser more secure, I didn't disable stuff like webgl, but i disabled a bunch of other settings, here is the video i followed:

https://youtu.be/xxWXLlfqNAo

I did install a few add-ons, such as Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere, and nightTab(I had this on chrome, and without it i feel home sick.)

I am unsure why these problems occur, as far as i know, my computer should be able to handle this.

I cannot find any other questions related to this, and it is really odd to me. I should also mention, Firefox is also quite slow anyways, it just feels slower than chrome, so i'm unsure if it's an optimization issue or what, but this occurs on all of my computers.

I hope someone can help me thank you.

My firefox browser has had issues displaying fonts when I have the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box checked. Its not all webpages as some have more bolded fonts, but it is more than one site.

I have scoured these forums trying to locate an answer, but for some reason the fonts are still so thin and unreadable. I have even erased all existence of firefox from my computer and reinstalled, but the issue still remains.

Please help me.

i wish there was a "Comments" section on https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/mac/ so i could tell people "NEVER use this!!"

i tried last week, downloaded and installed. The installation process, after unpacking the download, tried to install a "helper application". Popped up a dialog box asking for an admin userid+passwd. (even though i was obviously already running as an admin user... because i was in the middle of doing the install.) This was not an iOS dialog box from Apple, and it didn't have an option for scanning my fingerprint; this was something the "helper app" was doing on its own. Well i gave it my userid+password, and it went on to say the installation failed, and bombed out with no Firefox installed on my machine. Now, for all i know, my credentials are out there, God only knows where. So i had to go change my passwd on all of my machines.  :(

Firefox browser will not open. The FF icon is located in my taskbar (Windows 10). When I rest the mouse on this icon I see a very small representation of a website. When I click on the icon I see flash of some sorts on the desktop for about a nano second but the browser will not open.

I uninstalled FF and reinstalled. FF would open OK and I had no problems opening various websites. However, after I closed FF and attempted to open it up again it would not and so I am back to the original problem.

As I needed to access a website, I attempted to open Microsoft Edge and experienced the exact same problem. With the Microsoft Edge browser icon in the taskbar I can see a very small representation of a webpage but this browser will not open either.

Any assistance you can give me will be much appreciated, Con Van Dyk

I just turned off AdBlock Plus in the Add-Ons screen and downloaded ublock origin to try it out. There is no icon for this new plug in to be found anywhere. I can manually go in and change the settings on this plugin in the add-ons screen but there is no icon anywhere to go in quicker or to show a report of how many items were blocked. When I try to Customize my toolbars, the icon is not available there either. The nearest threads I can find on this topic are from 2018 and their solutions are very basic use. Yes, of course I restarted the browser. TIA.

HI I am using win 10 with the latest version of firefox. Yesterday when I booted into windows and started firefox it promptly crashed. I had made no changes either to the system or firefox in several days. Since then I have been unable to get it started except in safe mode and am therefore unable to enter troubleshoot mode. I tried my previous restore points but system restore failed with each one. I have run malewarebytes, adwcleaner and a couple of other programs but they all found nothing. My drivers are all up to date. As a last resort I did a clean uninstall of firefox and manually deleted the firefox folder. I downloaded a new installer from your site only to find that it crashed during install. However, using safemode, I did get it installed but it still crashes in normal mode. Below I've listed the last two crash ID's from the old version as well as the ID from the new one. bp-08805de5-865c-4c55-af1f-c79720211123 old installation bp-d76380c7-9f34-467e-a347-34a180211123 old installation

bp-a09ec77d-868b-4670-a455-ed2d60211124 from new installation

I would be grateful for any help as Firefox is the only browser I tolerate on my OS. If you need any further information I would be happy to oblige.

Thanks

I just had to disable my speed dial FVsomething and Eversync because I found out that it was spyware! Firefox tried to tell me this and disabled it but I put it back, and then my husband checked it out and found out about the spyware on it. I'm bereft. I've used that speed dial for years and it's been such a big help for me. I had over 100 dial all set up.

So my question is, what speed dial can I use in Firefox? Everything I checked out isn't monitored so what do I do?

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?

For a long time I have not had the spell checker working on Firefox.

For example, in this text box as I type now, I have no spelling correction. If I right click I have no option to check spelling.

In settings - language, I have check spellings as you type ticked. In Add-ons, Manague Your language I have English (GB) Language pack installed

I have read everything I can, yet still can't get spellings enabled.

I can run the portable app version of firefox and spellings work for that, and a right click in a similar box to this gives me spelling options, so I know what it should look like.

I would really appreciate any help.

Thanks

Under: about:config browser.taskbar.lists.recent.enabled false

I have just made a Windows 10 system and I am not understanding the features now existing that weren't with Firefox on my Win7. I have turned the 'Frequent' off and now right clicking the Firefox icon produces 10 'Recent' listings. Being that I've changed FF's config to false, I do not know how to make these 10 'recent's permanently disappear. Right clicking one of these entities and removing only replaces with another.

Please help me to permanently remove 'Recent' from my right click of the Firefox icon in my taskbar.
