Firefox has installed a search bar at the top of my screen which is taking up space and duplicating the search field inside the FF window. It cannot be moved anywhere, cannot be dragged into the Customise section, does not respond to right-clicking, it's just there, and I hate it. I will uninstall Firefox and move to another browser if I don't find a solution soon. For my sins, I'm on Windows 10. Thanks for any help.

I'm using Windows Vista. I frequently save images to my disk, using the right mouse button. The command is- "Save Image As..." The "v" in "Save" is underscored. I know just enough to know that means there should be a keyboard shortcut using the "v"key. However, I have not been able to discover what the shortcut is. Cntr-v and Alt-v do not work (for me?). Does anyone know if there is a working shortcut? Thanks, I have arthritis in my fingers and this would be helpful.

I have an HP Pavillon, Juno email and Firefox is my default browser, At some point while accessing my email I will get the "unresponsive script" error and although it gives my options to continue, debug or close, none of it works and computer freezes. So I have to go to Task Manager and close everything down and start over. Very frustrating. It has also happened when I have been on other websites or with Internet Explorer. HP has tried fixing it, Juno has tried ....all to no avail. I've tried refresh, done many virus/malware scans, etc. It seems to me there is a plug-in or an add-in or some box somewhere not checked. Any ideas?

I read somewhere that the recent update from Firefox 45.0 to 45.0.1 was, in part, to fix an issue where some videos do not load in Firefox if third party cookies were blocked.

In my case, all videos loaded fine UNTIL I installed the update that Firefox said it needed, which was to update Firefox 45.0 to 45.0.1. After the update, some video files will not load at all. The video page and player will load, and the loading animation will start, but the video never loads. On sites that have an indicator as to what percentage of the file is loaded, it will go up to 99%, but will never finish loading, if it is really loading at all.

All my plugins related to video files are up to date. I am running Windows 7 SP1 64-bit operating system, have plenty of RAM. I began having the problem when I updated Firefox from v. 45.0 (32-bit version) to v. 45.0.1. Before the update, everything was working fine.

I tried playing the same videos in Internet Explorer 11, and they load and play just fine. Therefore, it is a Firefox issue, and a Firefox 45.0.1 issue specifically.

Am I just stuck with this albatross, or is there somewhere I can download Firefox 45.0 and go back to that version of Firefox?

Please reply

Hello! :)

I'm trying to come back to firefox from having used chrome for a long time and there is one feature i really miss from chrome; that it doesn't load a tab when it is created until i cllick on said tab. The option "do not load tab until opened" seems to only apply when firefox is restoring tabs from a previous session but NOT when i create a new tab in my current one. I like to (for instance when i watch youtube) open several interesting videos as separate new tabs and then watch them whenever i please, currently firefox immediatly loads all those videos in their tabs as soon as they are created, how do i stop this?

Regardless i hope you have a really nice day! :D <3

While browsing Kijiji, I get the above message whenever I try to do almost anything except scroll. Even if I use the space bar, up it pops in its own little window entitled: Blank which is my default home page. Kijiji suggested I switch to Chrome... not going to happen.

I do not want any software installed without my expressed permission but I do want this message to go away, or at least allow me to say "Thanks! Good job! Now, go away till next a new occurrence."

Is there some setting I should change?

Thanks very much for any help.

I can do a search on the "Show all Bookmarks" library but that will show the bookmark but it will not highlight the folder on the sidebar or give me any information or "path" on where to find it. I am using Firefox 45.9.0 ESR under Debian GNU/Linux 8.8 (Jessie) & Xfce.

Recently The Mozilla Firefox ESR browser was upgraded to Version 52.0 and I faced "few critical issues after updating".

"Few existing functionality is not working which was working perfectly before the update."

Error : JavaScript/jquery Error was thrown in Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 52.0 browser console alike “contains is not a function”.


But that "contain function" is working in previous Firefox ESR version.

So when I uninstalled the Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 52.0 and installed the Firefox ESR browser version 45.6.0. Here all my functionalities are working perfectly in Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 45.6.0.

Note: I am using jquery-1.7.2


I am not sure "Higher Version" than 52.0 of Mozilla Firefox ESR has also owned this same problem.

and also I am not sure, whether the "contains" is the only function which is not working but not aware of other functions.


Please let me know, 1. why am I facing this problem in the Mozilla Firefox ESR version 52.0? 2. what should I do to avoid this issue? 3. if possible, from which version to which version having this problem?


Kindly acknowledge to this.

Greetings,

I've checked several other help threads, and did some extensive Google searching to no avail.

I've recently updated a server for PCI standards, completely removing TLS 1.1 and below. Since this was completed, the websites hosted on the server that have the HTTPS prefix are giving me the "Secure Connection Failed" error message without a front-end bypass. Other websites without a SSL certificate work fine.

The websites with a SSL certificate are SHA256, valid, etc. All of it worked until I disabled the lesser protocols. Now only Firefox has an issue with accessing these websites; i.e: IE 11 and Chrome 50.0.2661.94.

I've already done the about:config and set the min/max to '3'. Restarted Firefox, cleared cache and cookies, safe mode to no avail.

I'm not running anti-virus, just Windows Defender (which doesn't matter if it's on or off).

Let me know if more information is required to fix this issue. Thanks.

I tried unchecking the Do not Track option but that didn't change anything. The plugin developer says it's the CSS of the Wordpress theme I'm using. The theme developers don't seem to have an aswer. Doe anyone have an idea of how to get the buttons to show? Here's the site:

How can I stop Firefox from asking me whether to share my location every time I visit a new page, after I've repeatedly answered Never Share My Location? I did the whole ABOUT:CONFIG thing and clicked on false for geo-location. After that, I tried to check the weather on the Weather Channel Website and the website won't show me anything except a partially loaded website. No weather! I went back to ABOUT:CONFIG and changed geo-location back to true and the Weather Channel website loaded correctly, but asked me whether I wanted to share my location, yet again! This is so frustrating!! Any other suggestions would be appreciated!
