Sommige add-ons vragen toestemming om alle data van websites te lezen, inclusief namen en wachtwoorden. Dit lijkt mij een beveiligingsrisico, maar toch beveelt Firefox o.a. de add-on Darkreader aan. Kan iemand mij vertellen waarom ik zonder enig risico darkreader kan gebruiken.

Hi,

I'm new to Firefox. I have a Facebook account which I have no issues with when using in Opera. But when I try to sign in to FB on Firefox it doesn't recognise my password. So I changed it yet it still isn't recognised. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, martin.

Hi!

Updated FF on my Linux box today & now the NYT homepage can't be loaded. Altho' the WaPo homepage seems to load faster, the NYT just times out in mid-render, probably due to the site's heavy javascript. FF doesn't pop up any error messages, alas.

I'm assuming the new FF is simply allergic to the NYT's clunky code. But still. . .any tips, tricks, workarounds or hints to fix?

Ty!

The web pages of https://www.heise.de serve as an example of the error. The publisher's main page shows the article images, while the article itself is without an image. In other browsers, Chrome and Opera, the images are visible in the articles. The error has been occurring for a few days, the time cannot be specified exactly. I have already turned off the ad blocker for heise.de without success. An update to FF86 was unsuccessful. A check of the FF settings did not bring any results either. Websites from other publishers e.g. www.techstage.de are not affected as far as I know.

In addition, the title bar always shows the context Login, although I am logged in. On some websites, e.g. http://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de, the login generates an error.

Hello,

I had a 300mpbs connection for download, but was never able to get past 200mbps. But now today, on installing a 1gig connection, I still cannot get past 200mbps. The installer blamed it on my PC's network card. But I just ran the same speed test with Microsoft Edge 64-bit, and I was able to get past 600mbps. So clearly, this problem is isolated to Firefox.

I am using the latest Firefox 32-bit. I have no addons installed. I am running Firefox on Windows 7.

After typing this post, I thought the 32-bit Firefox was probably causing the issue, so I installed the Firefox 64-bit, and the speed increased by 50mbps to 250mbps.

Thank you.

Hi!

I have two Firefox windows open. One is of my 'Personal' profile and the other is of my 'Work' profile. (Both set in 'about:profiles'). I would like to switch between the two using hotkeys.

While I'm able to switch between Firefox windows of the same profile using the default "Cmd + ` ", it's not working between windows of different profiles. "Alt + tab" works of course but that's slow if I haven't activated one of my profiles (window) for a while.

If there isn't a native solution, I'd also be interested in hearing about Lua + "Karabiner-elements" workarounds if you are familiar with them.

Thanks!

I am afraid that I am very confused about the changes to this site. Are the FAQs the only way to learn about the changes, or is there some documentation I am not presently seeing?

In addition, what happened to my older account on this site?

And where exactly are all the other posts, like I would expect to be seeing as if it were a regular forum platform?

Maybe I am more than confused. Maybe I am completely lost. Yes, my own stupidity might be a major factor for this confusion I am guilty of!

I have experienced with a specific website where downloading images always prompts the save to the Downloads folder instead of staying in the folder where i need to set the downloads for.

meaning: a set of images when clicking on save, then selecting the destination folder and saving, works ok. But upon saving the next image from the gallery returns to the downloads folder.

Trying this from any other website, the last folder where the last image was saved is the one where the new image will be saved.

If from the website where im having this issue, i right-click then click on the image and select "view image" and click save, the browser.download.lastdir does work and the previously used folder shows up as the destination for download.

I use 85.0.2-64bit on a Windows 10 PC.

For the last month or so, when I click on any of the headline links from the news.google homepage, I'm shown only a blank page. No error message. The url looks normal.

-The links all work when I use Edge.

-I do have Add-ons, but I turned them all off, restarted Firefox, and the links still fail. Any remedies? Suggestions? Some setting I don't know about?
