Have been using a script (.uc.js) in my profile/chrome folder to enable new-tab homepages via local files. After updating firefox ( 68.0b6, but I believe it appeared on b5) this functionality is gone. Instead it simply loads about:blank, seemingly showing that the script is not running at all.

Edit: upon further searching this seems to be to a change in Firefox 68 as a whole. Is there absolutely any way to regain this functionality?

I have 2 add ons installed-adblock plus and Roboform. Both show in add ons and show no error. I can disable or remove them. I can re-download and add them without error. But-neither show the icon on top, nor do they work. This does not appear to be the issue that occurred on 4 May. I'm stumped. When I check browser integration in Roboform, there are none listed, meaning that Roboform has not been integrated with FF, but add ons in FF show that it is and it is enabled. Nothing to check on add block plus, but there is no icon, so it is not doing anything. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using Firefox Developer Edition. I love Firefox. But when I change some CSS property colors on developer tools, it does not work instantly. For example, if I choose background-color it takes a little bit of time to show on web page. I'm front-end developer and sometimes I need to test different colors on my screens.

since v67 firefox uses separate profiles for stable, beta and nightly builds. that's a huge step in the right direction. running versions side-by-side was mentioned in a nightly blog post: https://blog.nightly.mozilla.org/2019/01/14/moving-to-a-profile-per-install-architecture/ KB-document: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profiles-firefox-installation

But how would I run stable and beta side-by-side?

Problems I am facing:

- both stable and beta released versions are called "Firefox.app" on macOS. So I can't have both in the programs folder

- If I rename Firefox.app (beta) to Firefox_beta.app macOS complains that signatures for that app are invalid (which is expected, so that's not a solution)

It would be awesome to run those versions in parallel. But how would that be done?

When I click on non-secure link in secure page in a frame it won't open the URL unless I open it in a new tab. If I change the non-secure link to a secure link in a secure page in a frame I can open the URL in the page. If I open the page with no frame I can open the non-secure link in the secure page. It seems to be the frame is stopping the non-secure link opening.

I have used 1Password/Firefox for years. With this version of Firefox, I cannot add its extension the normal way even though 1PW shows in add-ons and the icon is in the menu bar. When 1PW is invoked, I get a window opening and a message asking me to add 1PW extension to Firefox. I select Firefox but the Firefox accept dialog never appears. I am using Firefox V 68 beta 10. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I've been having problems with Facebook not displaying correctly in Firefox. It does work 100% in other browsers.

I"m using Firefox with Win 10.

I have cleared all recent history, cookies, cache. My sytem time is correct. I have checked all addons and extentions. I have even refreshed Firefox and nothing helps.

When I try to load Facebook it looks like a page with No Style but the Page Style is set as Basic Page Style. I have scanned for virus and Malware.

Most other pages load without any problems. Facebook has the problem and I also cannot load pages on Safelinking.net

Hi. I'm on 68.0b12 and I keep getting a message that Firefox can't update automatically to the latest version and I have to install a fresh copy. The day I got the message first I was running 68.0.b9 and I downloaded a fresh copy via the installer 3 times and the version was still the same and I kept getting the message. Now I'm somehow on b12 and I'm still getting that massage. It keeps appearing on my menu and takes me to the Firefox download page.

On my PC, whenever I click on any links in any external program, all links open in Chrome. Even though, I've checked that FF is my default program. Also checked that chrome is NOT my default program. Have also tried making chrome default and then back to Firefox as default. Have also tried setting FF as default in Windows>> Default Programs. But nothing is working. I've even tried making IE as default from Control Panel, yet Chrome opens. I've noted 1 thing that Chrome is not there in Control Panels> Programs & Features list.

This has been a MAJOR PROBLEM FOR ME for me since at least the time Quantum was released.

My goal during an update is to be able to continue using the release that is to be replaced until I am satisfied that the new release with its new profile includes as many of the preferences, add-ons, passwords, and other settings that can be carried forward from the previous one as possible (e.g., all that do not cause major conflicts or other serious problems not easily resolved).

The majority of the add-ons I use are related to maintaining the privacy, anonymity, security, and integrity of the browser as well as the data which it handles or manages. Quite a few are redundant so I usually have several installed but disabled at any given time.

From my perspective It makes little sense to enable Firefox to send anything to Mozilla (e.g., allow Firefox to phone home) before I am reasonably sure the new installation of Firefox is running well, with the same or a similar set of security and privacy add-ons in place, especially when I was not made very aware that enabling this would make restoring the add-ons I cherish easier in some way.

Storage is dirt cheap these days. Even on this laptop, I can add another 2TB of fast SSD storage via an external port, then move at least a 1TB of stuff off the 1TB internal SSDs -- in other words, I like the idea of having the option of making a complete backup of the entire existing Firefox Beta release I have been using with all of its pointers to my data on this system, other systems, in the cloud, etc. before letting the installer create the new installation for the upgraded Beta Release.

I gather a system reboot (or at least a browser restart would be in order at this point. After that, it would be wonderful if I was presented the option of migrating all of my old preferences, other settings, and passwords to new profile of the new installation. I doubt many of the add-ons I use are so obscure that they would not get tested by at least a few people doing QA for the upgrade so if any might pose problems, I could be told they could not be migrated with the rest that can be carried forward in a routine manner. (Specific instructions as to how to handle the exceptions would be nice. Some hints about why the particular add-on does not play well with the upgrade would give users a place to start investigating.)

What bugs me the most is that I am dead in the water until the add-ons that I use to block a shit-ton of tracking, fingerprinting, and other kinds of cookies, as well as those used by outright malware disservices found on some sites are in place to make the Web a much safer place for me and the things I use it for.

I completely understand why the upgrades to the first releases of Firefox Quantum required most users to re-install most addons and set most of their preferences, but after a major release upgrade or three to Quantum, things should be back to a lot more automated routine that preserves the functionality the user had in the previous release as much as is realistically feasible when the new release is installed in its own separate place with its own profiles, thus giving the user the fall back option of continuing to use the old release until the new one is tweaked enough to be workable for the user.

Remember: if you do not want to shed users because they get tired of having to restore things from scratch and perhaps losing a lot of important data or functionality along the way, you have to give them as clear and reliable means as possible of getting from where they where (presumably) somewhat satisfied with the old release to as good or better level of satisfaction with the new release, without making them jump through a lot of difficult hoops or perform what seem to be several arcane rituals.

In short, the default process should be to carry forward as many add-ons and user preferences as possible during an upgrade (given the user the option to start from scratch if he likes clean installs or happens to be enough of a masochistic geek to want to go through setting up two dozen add-ons and many specific settings). On occasion, I will put of with the painful process of cleaning the junk out of an old browser or system configuration, but usually I try to do that as part of routine housekeeping and like it when what should be a simple system or browser upgrade does not end up seeming like going through a full tax audit.

It was interesting and useful to get a feel of whether one's issue was something isolated or common. Where did that dashboard go? ... and why? And, is our feedback still used for something, or does it go to some server that stopped working long ago?

this has been a problem for multiple years. its caused me not to use my monitor at 4k because i love firefox but cannot stand a white bar on the side. im over this problem, it has not been fixed in several years (3+) with any update. Edge, Chrome, and Opera do not do this, only Firefox. I have tried standard, beta, nightly, and they all do the same thing. It is a firefox problem. Not windows, gpu driver, or anything else. Scaling above 100% should be just fine. I am ready to be done with Firefox as you guys don't seem to care about the problem at all. I have seen multiple posts on here about the same problem, and nothing gets done. Please fix this problem soon. I am ready to switch back to chrome -_-
