My version of FF is up todate it tells me. But I think it has become corrupted.

When I d/l a file it is downloaded in Downloads as a zipped HTML file NOT a data file which it should be (see attached). I then unpack it and when I try to open it, it reverts to firefox and begins opening tabs at a great rate of knots. I have to 'end task' in Task Manager to stop it.

After updating Firefox, clicking the print button in gmail message results in feedback: "Grrr! A popup blocker may be preventing the application from opening the page. If you have a popup blocker, try disabling it to open the window." Turning off popup blocker does not correct problem. Popup blocker being on never blocked gmail printing before recent Firefox update.

new firefox download i.e. firefox refresh as trying to sort problems after my daughter downloaded some stupid apps. Old email appearing in top right. Tried to change this but unable as it wants me to sign in and sends me a revalidation link. However as this is an old email address I won't received the link. Can't sign in with second email as it wants me to sign in with primary email.

Unable to set up new account as this email address is already in use (presumably as mt secondary email address on the old account) So what do I do?

Also its so annoying the security seems to have been set so high that every page tells me certificate not valid includi9ng firefox own page

Dark theme isn't automatically enabled in macOS 10.14 dark mode

I recently found out that according to the 62.0 changelog (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/62.0/releasenotes/), "Dark theme is automatically enabled in macOS 10.14 dark mode". This was news to me, since I'm on Firefox 62.0.2, and I'd been using Mojave for a few days, and f.lux automatically switches it to Dark Mode when the sun sets, and yet I'd never once seen Firefox switch to Dark Theme when this happened. I just restarted Firefox in Safe Mode to see if that helped, but it still isn't working.

Some websites completely break Firefox

I've recently switched back to Firefox from Chrome. I'm currently running version 62.0.2 on MacOS (High Sierra 10.13.4). I mostly imported bookmarks from my old Chrome session, and I didn't have an Firefox Sync account so I created one.

I've been experiencing issues with certain websites such as Facebook, or Paypal. When I try to go on these websites, they won't load very quickly compared to others, and they end up breaking Firefox completely. By that I mean that other tabs seems to act as if there was no internet anymore. An example would be Spotify, who simply stops playing music as soon as I go on these websites, or Gmail that claims there's no connection to the internet. Opening new websites (that usually load without any issue) doesn't work anymore, I get a permanent "Waiting for <website.something.tld> in the lower left corner".

This was after a fresh installation of Firefox. I've also experimented these issues, with exactly the same websites, on my other computer which runs Firefox 64 (I think?), on a Windows 7 box. I've tried pretty much everything in the help section listing fixes for websites that load slowly, etc. including resetting Firefox completely, but the issue doesn't go away.

These websites still load fine in Chrome.

I would like to know if there are other steps I could follow in order to solve that problem.

Thanks!

How do I disable "Nanny State" messages from your browser start page telling me to "take a break", "vote", etc?

A browser is a tool, not my mommy. On the Firefox startup page, I am told by my web browser of choice to "go take a break" (eat something healthy like an apple), I'm told how to protest political issues... reminded to register to vote and also reminded that mostly old people voted in the last election.

I don't want to see these political messages, or ANY life advice from my favorite web browser ever again. Just like I don't need my couch or my microwave to tell me what job to apply for.

How do I get rid of these ridiculous, obnoxious, over-reaching nanny state messages on the start page?

I've upgraded computers to a 2017 Macbook Pro. It came with Sierra. I migrated all my data, apps etc from my older MBP. I started having the cursor arrow disappearing and made selecting Finder menu items impossible while Firefox was running. It even affects the Finder when FF is in the background while this is happening. I'm using Firefox 62.0.2. I've found that I can quit FF and the cursor goes back to normal. I can also restart the Finder and the cursor will resume normal function without quitting FF. I've refreshed FF. I also started with a new profile and still occasionally get this problem. I also disabled all add-ons without results. It doesn't happen if I'm not using FF. I don't think it is website related as it occurs on many sites. I've since upgraded to High Sierra and it still occurs. I've tried making the cursor larger with accessibility which didn't help.

I have the latest version of Firefox loaded and synced on several computers, all running fully updated Windows 10, and Google news displays correctly on all but one, my primary desktop, a Dell XPS 8900 that seems to be working just fine. Only on this computer, the left hand menu shows shadow commands over the menu items, such as play_newsstand over the menu item top stories. What setting, that is not synced, could possibly cause this to happen and how can I change it?

I have lots of saved bookmarks and passwords in my old sync address and it won't let me upload them to my new address because it wants me to use old e-mail address to berify ownership and my old address was discontinued when I changed servers. It wouldn't let me just transfer e-mail sync. I had a crash and reloaded windows 7 and downloaded firefox but it wouldn't let me sync because I couldn't confirm my old e-mail address with old server, as that address was discontinued.
