I have noticed a new folder has appeared on my desktop - out of the blue - labelled "STG-backups-FF-81.0.1" If I delete it, it is simply replaced by another one at some point, later on. I assume this folder is created by Firefox and the back-up file information is saved in it automatically. Surely the folder should be in a different location? Has anyone any ideas on where this is supposed to be, and how to get Firefox to revert to saving the files in it in the correct place?

Hi,

Overall, TB has been great until now.

I have two email accounts on the page, mine and my wife's. Hers is fine but mine has a password box that pops up. At first, I just clicked the x and the emails would pour in, but after a few days, that would not work any longer. Sending is fine but receiving will not work. Then after repeatedly enter my password from long ago, the receiving of emails started working for a day. Now this evening, its asking for a password and no matter how many times I enter it, no go! I read your forums and disabled password authentication under tools. No go!

Can someone please help me.


Best, William

I am NOT asking to remove content from the drop down - already done. I do not want the drop down to open - at all.

On a Mac the drop down interferes with the normal entry user interface. The normal text interface is: type to move to first/last character use the up/down arrow. The dropdown interferes with this standard behavior. The up/down arrow will not move the cursor to the first/last character in the url - until/ or unless the user hits <esc> to close the dropdown.

I have looked at the browser.urlbar preferences and do not see a setting that will change this behavior.

Is there a way to do this, so that url entry is doen entirely in the url bar - and not in the drop down. (and before this is discussed - I do Not want to have Any type ahead/lookup done on the urls entered, and have already disabled all of these options, so there is no need for the dropdown).

Thank you Mac OS X 10.13.6 FF 81.0

My search engine, set to be Google in Settings, is Yahoo every time I try to search. I went to your "solutions" page and followed all instructions, to no avail. When I open "add-ons" I get nothing but a blank page. I deleted and reinstalled Firefox, and that did nothing either. I've been forced to change to Chrome as my default browser, and there I can use Google. Please help!

I have tried disabling the adblocker, but get the same result. this happens on all sites

I recieved the 81.0.2 update this morning, and the problem remains

I can sign in to my Ebay account from Google Chrome no problem......gets right in.

I can also sign in with Microsoft Edge.............no problem.

But EVERYTIME I sign in to Ebay with Firefox, I have to use Captcha....not once, but 2 times!!

Why ONLY Firefox??

How can I turn off Captcha?

It is unnecessary, it is annoying, it is a pain in the A__.

PS Firefox is my Browser of choice. I'd rather not have to switch.

Hi – I recently restarted my browser and realized that I couldn't connect to any https sites – each attempt would throw a "the connection was reset" error.

I've changed my network settings from DNS-over-HTTPS to No Proxy and sites are now loading correctly.

I'd certainly like to use DNS-over-HTTPS if possible for the greater security, so I'd like to know what's causing the problem.

a. Is it just because I'm in Canada that DNS-over-HTTPS is throwing these errors? (Note: I was living in the US until recently) b. Are there some other proxy or ISP settings that might be causing the problem? c. Or should I be considering whether my connection has an actual security concern?

Thanks.

Hi,

A good chunk of my time is spent using sharepoint as part of collaborative work. For years now I find myself using two different browsers, Firefox for everything except when I work with sharepoint for which I use chrome or edge. The issue is that I can open a document in sharepoint however the document always opens as read only document. Even if I checkout the document in advance in sharepoint it stills opens as read only. This of course makes the process a bit cumbersome has I need to save the document locally and upload the document to sharepoint after I finish with it. On the other hand when I use edge or chrome the document opens and prompts me to check out the document (this is done within word or excel). After checking out the document (one button click) I can make my edits and when I click save it saves directly in sharepoint. Once I’m finished with it I can check in the document before closing the document which makes the entire process more streamlined. The only difference I can see is the fact that Firefox opens the document in read only mode. Is there a way of making it open office documents in edit mode? Thank you in advance for any pointer or suggestions

Firefox has been acting funny under Windows 10 lately so, I recently saved my bookmarks and logins to files (in anticipation that I may have to uninstall and reinstall firefox.) I read the article that explains that if "import from file" does not appear on the "logins & passwords" "more" menu (three dots) then, it means I have to go to about:config in the address bar and turn the feature back on. I went to about:config only to discover that I do not know the name of the preference that I want to toggle.

Does anyone know the name of that preference?
