In previous Firefox updates, I would set my homepage and then all tabs would open in that homepage. Now the first time I open Firefox, I get my homepage that I set. When I click on a new tab in that window, the new tab come up with your Firefox page and your Firefox logo on the tab. I don't want your page and it is being forced on me. In preferences my homepage is set correctly. Your responses to other people who have complained about this says to go into config and make code changes. That's fine for a PC, but I have a Mac computer, and there are no suggestions as to how to fix this. If this can't be fixed on my Mac computer, I will change to another browser and remove Firefox from my computers, laptop and phone. I really liked Firefox before being forced to use your homepage.

Since FF upgraded to v5x (last month), Napster audio no longer works. I have Ghostery and AdBlocker Ultimate running. I've whitelisted both and started FF several times with ad-ins disabled. Still doesn't work. Audio on other sites works fine (only not on Napster). Napster suggested I wipe out my profile and create a new one (I don't want to reinstall Windows either). FF I use is portable FF. Napster audio works fine on Opera portable and on IE.

I tried all of the suggestions for audio problems to no avail. Like I said, audio works on everything except Napster. Napster worked fine for years before about a month ago.

I received notice to update Java. But when I tried, it failed- something about Java not working as a plug-in with Firefox. I'm old- I'm 73 and to me, a plug-in goes into a wall socket. I tried reading the article by Firefox about how to fix it, but it might as well be written in Chinese. Please help- I need very simple instructions starting from the very beginning: exactly what commands to use. thanks

ils envoient une enquête de satisfaction et d'utilisation au nom de Mozilla et en remerciement de la réponse proposent un smartphone samsung à pris cassé. une fois la somme réglée ils envoient un courriel de confirmation en révélant seulement alors leur identité. Puis ils s'empressent de vous coller un abonnement de 74 € en prélevant via votre CB sans redemander votre autorisation et en ne tenant pas compte du délai de rétractation de la loi française. Evidemment ils ne font aucun difficulté pour annuler votre abonnement mais sans remboursement des 74€. il est clair que si leur identité avait été clairement affichée dès le départ je n'aurais absolument pas été intéressé. ils arnaquent donc le client et nuisent à l'image de Firefox mozilla.

Todays Update Has Made My Hidden City Game On Facebook Painfully Slow

Today 5/20/2018, I opened Firefox and it was automatically updated. After the update I used my bookmark for Hidden City on Facebook (it's not the Gameroom app) and while the app was loading twice I got the yellow banner message that a webpage is slowing down my browser. I have gotten that message before and I always just wait instead of clicking Wait or Stop and the message goes away the app continues loading. After the loading screen the game was unbearably slow. My cursor moved around the screen fine but everything in the game moved slow. The CPU usage was 60-64 and the Memory usage was 63-71 and 4 firefox processes were running. When I first used the FireFox Quantum browser to play Hidden City was slow and I followed help page to fix it, but this recent update seems to have undone what I tweaked. The current version of the browser I see in the about FireFox is 60.0.1 (64 bit). Can someone help me tweak the browser so I can play game Hidden City? And I would like to also play my Secret Society game (it's the same type of game as Hidden City) in this browser but I haven't because I was concerned both games would be to much data for the browser to hold and would cause it to slow down. Is there a way I can store the data for both games so it doesn't effect the browsers performance and protect the data from being accidentally deleted when I clean out the browsers history? Also, Firefox is not my default browser, I only use it to play Hidden City because Internet Explorer can't be used to play it. Also I already have Adobe Flash on my computer but I can't use it in Firefox, when I tried to check out Secret Society there was a message saying I need to download flash player. How do I enable Flash Player so I can play Secret Society? I tried following the article I found in help but I don't see the flash player in my add ons, and the other add-ons I have is UBlock and it's enabled, and No Script which I just added today to see if it would help but I disabled it because it blocked java script and Hidden City won't work without it. If you need more information just let me know and I will try my best to supply it. Thank you for your time.

Please look at the attached .jpg. I cannot make the "Keep until" option available. It is grayed out, and every setting I try does not change this condition. I have used this setting before on earlier version of Firefox to selectively keep some, but not all cookies, but I cannot set this option. Your assistance is appreciated.

Hi all,

When I open Firefox after closing it (most frequently by closing Firefox windows or by shutdown Ubuntu directly), although it is set to always restore my open tabs, it opens "Session Restore" page at each start. The consequence is that I've now nested "Session Restore" tabs that I'd to open in each restored session, say... at least 5 times!

I'm on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04), Firefox version 60.0.1. My PC is a kind of efficient one (Core i7, 16GB RAM, SSD...) and opens dozens of tabs without problems, so I want to always keep them.

How to make Firefox open automatically all my tabs without boring "Session Restore" tabs anymore, even if Firefox thinks it has crashed?

Thanks in advance

Below, see 2 tiles of my firefox page with tabs. To the right, is the icon/tile like I would like to have my icon/tile, too. On the left, ist a icon/tile which looks not nice and is just a screenshot with a favicon put on it.

HOW (and I searched the internet all day long for a solution) do I do it? What do I have to put in my website to get such a nice version of a big-tile-icon? I have dozens of icons in my root already, for apple and such, that does not seem to help.

Thanks for any help.

I recently noticed that my search history had a huge number of remembered queries. I don't really care to see previous searches in my list. Is there a way to configure Firefox to clear that without wiping out any of my other histories? I like having browser history and I don't want it to clear out my auto-complete stuff in forms, but I do want it to wipe out my search history. When looking at settings, it appears the Form and Search history are tied together. That doesn't make sense to me. Is there a flag in about:config I can toggle to just wipe out search history on browser restart, leaving the rest intact? I use the separate search box and have disabled the "awesome bar."

With Win 10 1803 Home Edge works, Chorme and Firefox shut system down New Dell Inspiron XPS 7573, Dell has remotely run long Hardware Diagnostics, no trouble found. I can search (Bing or Google) fill forms, type input with no trouble. In Chrome or Firefox if I start typing a query or entering a text string, after about 6 characters a fly-out above Notifications Says "Ambient Light Sensor …, and if one or two more characters are typed within a few seconds, the Dell Support Assist App opens, then the screen goes black, and in 15 seconds or so the system shuts down. Pressing Power Button restarts the PC, from Dell logo to login screen, and system comes up exactly where it was when I typed the final character that triggered the shutdown. If I space out typing, leaving a second or two between key strokes, I can avoid the shutdown.

Has anyone else seen this? I am quite sure the system is not overheating, does this with external power connected. Jack
