Linking Twitter to Facebook results in message "Failed to load the Facebook SDK". Login from Twitter to Facebook account 'hangs'. Clearing cookies, disabling firewall and antivirus etc. does not help. According to forums etc lots of users have this problem, but no solution. Problem does NOT appear when I use Edge or IE11. Firefox is on latest level.

I used 'Refresh Firefox' there was a folder named "Old Firefox Data" placed on my desktop. When firefox came back up all my addons were gone. I was left with a pretty much bare bones Firefox. I needed those addons to work with. I attempted to restore the addons by either installing them through extensions or plugins and installing from files but FF said that here were no extensions that were recognized. I don't even know where to begin now to fix this. Half the extensions I want FF won't allow anymore.

I have been a loyal fan of Mozilla since Netscape .. This was a turning point for me. DONE .. OVER .. ENDED.

Since about 3 days ago, Sept 13 2016, I have been unable to access any google web site on my Windows 10 PC using Firefox or Chrome. 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.

I don't understand why Firefox determines any software from Yahoo is corrupt? What qualifies Firefox to make such a stupid decision. I've been having issues installing Yahoo Toolbar onto my Firefox Browser all day. I tried installing the yahoo toolbar from Firefox's add-on and it doesn't work!

I downloaded the yahoo toolbar last night from the URL: https://toolbar.yahoo.com/?.intl=us which worked perfectly but as of this morning, Firefox determined the toolbar was corrupt because their "Certificate" was not up to date.

I can't tell you how frustrating this is, Firefox is in no position to say what's corrupt from Yahoo, really?! I will say any download I try from Firefox from your pathetic ADD-On page is not even close to being accurate. I tried downloading the yahoo toolbar from this URL: https://us.toolbar.yahoo.com/toolbar?code=113 but after downloading the toolbar this crap doesn't even show up and it doesn't exist after clicking on View> Toolbars off the Menu

What is firefox trying to do here, this really is driving me nuts and this is absolute BS, what are you people Firefox trying to do! Get your act together and why mess up something which isnt broken.

A long time ago I think I changed my Firefox settings so that when I print a web page, all the links on that that page get printed with their often l-o-n-g URLs. Some pages are really hard to read with about 8 long URLs all over the page.

I've googled around on how to change it, but haven't had any luck.

Can anybody help?

Thanks :-)

How accurate is it when you download something through Firefox and it says "This Download Has a Virus or Malware and has been blocked for your safety"? Because I clicked "dowload anyway" then scanned it with Malwarebytes and Windows Defender and they didn't find a virus. I also scanned my whole PC and detected nothing.

Is it possible to restore, multiple windows filled with tabs instead of just the previous tabs? This would be really useful for me as I like to have one window open for work-related things and another one for reddit, youtube and the likes. On this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-previous-session it says firefox can restore previous windows and tabs, but that seems to be only when firefox crashes.

I have searched this eror message whic be taken by firefox but I dont find anything.

The character encoding of the plain text document was not declared. The document will render with garbled text in some browser configurations if the document contains characters from outside the US-ASCII range. The character encoding of the file needs to be declared in the transfer protocol or file needs to use a byte order mark as an encoding signature.

I am wainting yours helps. Thanks

I've sent this to Speedbit. I've used Download Accelerator Plus for years with IE, Chrome, & Firefox. It no longer works with Firefox. Others have discussed this problem, Mozilla has done nothing. The xpinstall.signatures.required set to false has worked, but left Firefox vulnerable to unsigned add-ons. It no longer works. I'll be looking for another accelerator if no-one here has another work-around.

On text only pages, Firefox displays text Left-to-Right (LTR) by default, even for plain text in which the language is read Right-to-Left (RTL). Firefox should either,

1) display content LTR or RTL on the basis of script (e.g., UTF-8 Hebrew text should be aligned RIGHT) 2) provide a user option to toggle which way all the text should be aligned on text only pages (perhaps, via the context menu)

Thank you

Every time I open Firefox, a box with "Would you like to receive notifications from this site?" appears. When I click on "learn more" it comes up as a Webpush notification. The sequence of directions to supposedly remove this (Options..Content..Notification...Remove site)..is not helpful as no sites are listed to remove. Ironically, in your description of webpush notifications, you state it is an "optional feature" and that you "only receive messages from sites for which you have granted permission." Apparently not, since I not only have not granted permission, but I "opt" to not receive this, but seem to have no choice at this point.

I'm using Firefox 48.x on Windows 10. The margins (Page Setup > Margins) used to show in inches, but now they're in millimeters.

For each printer I have, their Printing Preferences in say I'm using either 'Letter' size or 8½ x 11 inch paper. Any other program with measurements shows in inches.

Thunderbird, Office (Word, Excel...), Corel Designer, and Photoshop all are in inches.

How do I get it back in Firefox?
