I now can't use hyperlinks in a document (although I can from an email) to open a browser page. Instead I get the message "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator."

This wasn't happening before we uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox a few days ago to fix another problem. There have been Windows 10 updates recently, but they did not cause this problem. It started after we reinstalled Firefox.

I don't have a "system administrator" and I don't know what to do about it. Any suggestions?  This is the first time I have come across this problem. I don't use any other browser except IE occasionally.

I'm getting crashes about 10 times a day. Used to get those "gah..." annoying messages, I've gone to change these configs ( browser.tabs.remote.autostart / 2 to ) as I read it helps, well since that the whole bloody thing crashes. So I'm now changing it back.

Very frustrating. Just updated to 59 to see if it makes a difference, 2 crashes within an hour since. I've sent an incredible number of crash reports with the auto-reporting feature in the past week.

I'm on the edge of ditching this grand new fireshit for good, it's not much different from Chrome now anyway since the dumbing down of interfaces.

So this is my last effort towards this; can anyone help me with this? Without reinstalling the whole friggen mess, mind, as I do NOT want to lose all my personal configs, if I do that, might as well ditch this rubbish of a browser now and go back to v56 or palemoon, or indeed chrome.

Using win7 btw.

Hi, i'm absolutely missing the tab groups feature that was removed with firefox quantum.

Is there a possibility to bring back this feature? Within firefox by default? Or as an addon?

None of the other alternative addons are what i'm looking for. I almost used the tab groups feature as an better alternative for bookmarking my urls. Because it also was easy to group and search for keywords on the tabs within the tab groups view. Thanks, tobi

How to use master password only to reveal password?

Hi,

It's a pain right now using a master password on firefox. Every time I go to a website that needs my login, Firefox ask for my master password before it will load the user/pass into the login page. If I don't use the master password, then the problem is that if I leave my computer unlock for a little bit, someone can come by and click show password in setting and it will just show the passwords without asking for the master password.

So what I want is to only use master password when I click on show password in setting, and I don't have to do anything when trying to login to a page.

This is doable at work, with their security setting for all computer and it works great. When I click show password on Firefox at work, the computer ask for my Windows login password before it would show the Firefox password. That's what I want the master password to do. Only ask for it when I click show password.

Thanks

I can't login to my former firefox account after a 'break' (deleting the Firefoxbrowser from my computer), then installed it again a while later. I have to admit I'm not totally sure where in Firefox I created my former login, if there is more than one place in the Firefox-webbrowser you can create an account so to say.. ? Also now I have some form of an account, created for to put this question, the one I used before was more about making Firefox more personalised as I recall it.

Thank you

It seems to work in Google Chrome and such but ever since switching to FF, I've loved it. I do have an issue with Flash and I've tried almost every solution listed, reinstalling Firefox, reinstalling flash itself, submitting crash reports, etc etc, but nothing seems to work and if I need to view a flash I would have to view it on Google Chrome.

How to customize colors of displayed URI elements in address bar

Is there a way to customize the colors of each element of a displayed URI in the address bar?

A generic URI is of the form:

scheme:[user[:password@]host[:port]]/path[?query][#fragment]

For example with the following URI:

https://example.com/search?q=txt#result

I'd like to have the scheme (`https://`) be displayed as it is right now. The host (`example.com`) should be shown with a blue foreground font color. The path (`/search`) in yellow. The query (`&q=txt`) in red and the fragment (`#result`) in black.

Is such a customization possible - I coulnd't seem to find any info on that or a relevant add-on.

In the past week, I have been unable to print from Firefox. I have changed nothing, and I have now just gone through every permutation from the help section, i.e. check page settings, reset all printer settings (that was scary!), but nothing has worked. The document I was originally trying to print does work from IE, but Mozilla is my default browser. Any easy-to-use instructions to help resolve the problem will be much appreciated, but please note that I am NOT technically-minded so they really will have to be easy to follow.

the scroll bar does not appear in youtube for subscriptions in firefox anymore. I have to use chrome for it to work. I hope youtube fixes this as it is very annoying. the main scroll bar works just not the one of the left side of the screen to view subscriptions. I wish there was a easy fix without having to mess with the style settings. could someone please help me fix this as it is so annoying thanks. I really like firefox better than chrome and I would rather not have to use chrome if i don't have to. is it related to the latest firefox update?
