I used to go to findagrave.com to copy photos {"Copy Image"} of headstones to my StarOffice and OpenOffice documents. For the last few weeks I have NOT been able to copy the photos to my documents. Also I have received the "Urgent Update" --- but I did not do it. I have not found any other problem using firefox in the last few weeks.

BUT the following WORK just fine:

 Firefox ---  work-around: "Save Image As",  use "jpg" & copy the image from "downloads" to the document
 Google Chrome --- no problems
 Avast Safe Zoone --- no problems

Thanks, WDLIII

I'm trying to stream ESPN, FS1, & NBCSN via XFINITY. When it starts to load they respond with a polite message that an updated version of the Flash Player is needed and supplies the Adobe link. Going to the Adobe site and initiating the update sequence Adobe replies with the message "Package 'adobe-flashplugin' is already installed". I'm using Ububtu 16.04 64 bit. Watching video on YouTube is no problem for example. There is no problem on a tablet using Win8 & Firefox to do the same thing.

Version 48.0.2 no longer allows me to keep my history option to 'custom' so I allow cookies, history, etc to be saved but don't allow third party cookies. Instead it now reads 'remember history'. As suggested in a Firefox help doc I unchecked prefs.js from 'read only' but that made no difference. There is also no 'save' button any longer in the options applet. How do I return to having a choice of having custom settings under options/privacy tab? I'd prefer not to have to completely configure my whole Firefox settings, layout, add-ons options, etc but just restore the functionality of this one privacy option. Thank you.

As a Firefox fan, I use it exclusively and have set max security, use daily or on power-up AVG, have a firewall and regularly use the C+cap+del when each web-site opens. The above ADN has a Next 'button', which - when clicked on - re-directs to a malicious web-site in another window. The ADN's tekkie Chris says: Subject: Re: ADN'S News Page HACK...

I can get everywhere else, but for google sites I get the message, "Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at xxxx.google.com." I've tried all the troubleshooting steps here as well as on google, and have made no progress. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Tabs are opening by themselves to various sites. I've added the urls that are presently opened against my will below. On pages I've opened myself random words are being highlighted/enlarged in blue, and there's this green-arrows-in-a-circle symbol next to them. I've included a screenshot image of an example of that. This stuff isn't happening w/my other browsers. Please help me fix this mess. FF is my go-to browser. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer. Bye for now.

The drop down menu that appears when I type in the location bar encompasses my entire screen from side to side, and it used to be just the width of the location bar. I have no idea how it got this way, and at first I thought I hit a shortcut by accident, but I looked up Firefox shortcuts and now it doesn't look like it. Image: https://puu.sh/qoVwJ.png

I have saved a session with 700+ bookmarks. If I reload that session it loads all the tabs at once and crashes Firefox

I noticed that when I load a session it doesn't reload all the tabs at once, so that would be usefull in this case because I want to preferentially browse tabs and only load the ones I need clicking on them (it's harder doing that opening the bookmarks tree each time)

I just upgraded to 48.0 and the steps to open a new tab are not as convenient as in my previous version.

In my previous version (40.0? 43.0?) the "plus sign" always appeared "attached" to the right edge of whichever was the right-most tab on the line (i.e., not all the way at the extreme right end or left end of the line), and as I opened a new tab, the plus sign would just move to the right edge of the new tab, or if I closed a tab the plus sign would shift to the right edge of the previous tab.

How do I get the plus sign to work this way in 48.0 (i.e., as described in the paragraph above)?

(if it matters, I have 4 lines displayed at the top of the browser - Menu, Navigation, Bookmarks and Tabs - and the tabs are displayed on the lowest of these 4 lines. Also, I am using Classic Theme Restorer 1.5.5.2. And my previous version was set up the same way.)

Thanks for any help you can give me making the new version easier to use. Frank

My company uses a website to place orders with our vendors. Until recently I have been able to use shift+F10 to perform a repetitive function on this website. After this past weekend I started getting a "pop-up" window that prevents the repetitive use of the shift+F10. How can I turn this off?

I really like Firefox and do not want to switch just to get rid of this issue.
