I want to know what caused the Firefox icon to disappear from my dock and be replaced by the generic icon. Firefox seems to continue to work well. I don't want to re-install it when it seems to work. However, I want to know what caused this to happen and if there is an easy way to restore it to the unique icon. I've read about the various remedies but don't want to take the time for a re-install when everything seems to be working.

Please just tell me the cause and if there is an easy solution.

Hi folks,

Forced to update (expected) and 102 ran like two flat tires and no spare whil eI had no issues with 91. MANY hours of searching got me reasonably successful in acceptable performance. But two problems, one which could easily be a bug:

1. I can find no way including in about:config to enable lazy tab loading. In other words, open a group but not load each tab until it is clicked on.

Where did that go?

2. This one is more unique. I have a desktop install of ESR and a portable ESR install on a thumb drive. For MANY years I backed up bookmarks on my desktop and restored them to FF on my thumb drive. Now, after I shut down the portable (which takes a very long time) there are multiple bookmarks. Html files that seem to merge on shutdown. Problem is, on the thumb drive this is not completed before FF shutdown and the processes closed. Results in damaged bookmark files and a crash EVERY time.

IF I drag the copy of FF ESR portable to my desktop and perform the same procedure, no problems. So somehow on a USB 3 thumb drive the process of merging bookmarks. Html files is too slow and will cause a crash consistently.

Any suggestions or should I file a bug report?

Hola, El "nss internal pkcs #11 module" que está instalado no me deja cargar el certificado del DNIe. He intentado descargarlo pero me dice que "no es posible desargar el módulo". Lo que necesito saber es cómo pueso "descargar" o desinstalar el "nss internal pkcs #11 module"

(He instalado un nuevo módulo que sí que me deja cargar el certificado. El problema es que cuando me conecto a alguna de las páginas oficiales en las que necesito identificarme con el DNIe me da error y creo que es porque el nss internal interfiere de algún modo.)

Os agradezco de antemano vuestra ayuda.

Hi, I'll try to keep this as short as possible. I cannot access my mail using the Firefox browser. I have tried the TalkTalk Mail website without success as it has "timed out." I can access my TalkTalk account but when I click the "Mail" button, after about 30 seconds I get a message saying that it has also "timed out." I also use Thunderbird and although I can receive Emails, I cannot send them. After sending, I receive a message that a password is required and when I enter it another message comes in stating that that they "could not authenticate to outgoing server, check password" etc which I have done. I can send and receive Emails on my iphone and Fire tablet. I can access my mail on the two aforementioned sites using the Windows Edge browser. I contacted TalkTalk and after two hours it was decided that the Firefox browser was at fault. I have used Firefox and Thunderbird for too many years to remember and it has always served me well. I would be extremely grateful if there is someone who may have had the same problem and would be able to assist. Kind regards, John

Adobe Reader DC fails to load any .pdf and issues an error message saying it can't find api-ms-win-runtime-L1-1-0.dll. That error message suggests that I re-install the program. I actually went to UN-install Adobe reader, sorted the installs by date, and discovered that just before this failure 2 Mozilla programs had installed. 1. Mozilla Maintenance Service and 2. Mozilla Firefox (x64 en US) The dates for these 2 installs was 9/21/2022. Today is 9/22/2022. I KNOW I was using Adobe Reader successfully on this computer yesterday (9/21/2022).

Is there any connection?

My desktop Firefox will not allow me to log into my bank. When I hit Log In, the bank page goes cloudy and that's it. This is not happening on other browsers, or on my laptop with the same passwords. This started today. There has been a recent Firefox update. We have cleared cache and cookies, tried disabling add-ons, run C Cleaner, no change.

Has anyone else had this problem? The computer involved has not had any changes recently.

Thanks for any help.

FF Slides Windows Taskbar On Open, Issue Reopening Last Session

I was having an issue where FF wouldn't restore my tabs on start. "Recently closed tabs" wasn't available, and when choosing "recently closed windows," 2 - 4 new windows would open, along with one which had the previous session tabs.

I noticed in the task manager that FF wasn't actually closing, so I started using "exit" in the FF menu. Now, even after a computer reboot, when I start FF I see a number of windows open and close quickly, along with a identical "copy" of my windows taskbar sliding in from the left to the right, and "replacing" the current one. I had to record my screen to be sure that's what I was seeing. After the "extra" windows flash open and closed, the FF window with the previous session tabs "slides in" with the "new" windows taskbar.

This does not seem normal to me, as my Windows taskbar has never move before unless I moved it. I'd also like to be able close FF without exiting through the menu, or having to reopen and close several windows if I forget to. This behavior is the same in when I start in safe mode as well. I've never synced FF, or signed for that, and I ran malwarebytes and gotten nothing. Is something wrong here?

Hello. I am in need to open www site of Swegon AHU unit which is built on java. I have two installed java versions, 1.8 (one of latest of this branch) and 1.6. Problem is the AHU site is not working with anything newer than 1.6. I can't find proper solution for opening site with version 1.6 without much issues or much asking from browser. I need version 1.8 of java for daily use, and 1.6 is only for mentioned device. I tried to disable java 1.8 in java control panel but it doesn't seem to have any influence. I try to open site in Firefox 52ESR because for my knowledge is it one of latest browser which supported java. The problem is, Firefox each time is asking me what version to select for each class which must be loaded, and these classes are many for one page. It makes working with AHU a pain in azz. Everything because java is out-of-date. I know it is, but I don't have any option - these devices are not mine, and I can't upgrade firmware on myself, and can't force customer to do this. And I don't even know if there is any upgrade for them. I looked in internet but didn't find anything suitable for my case. Is there anything I can do with java or firefox 52ESR settings to make this site works flawless? I set applet in Firefox to not asking when activate java, but it still nagging me with questions and requires confirmations. I can't bypass it. I tried to use Internet Explorer 11 but there it is even worse, because out-of-date java is not allowed to run, no matter what settings i made in application. Please help.
