Hello,

As a web developer I run MAMP locally and develop my websites using chrome, now I wanted to switch to the dev browser of firefox. After allowing an exception for my local domain name pointing to the MAMP instance running that particular website it does not let me go past thru the alert. Even when adding the correct domain name to the exception list under the tab security in the settings it does not let me go past thru the warning.

Changing the Toolbar Icon sizes to be visibly discernible shouldn't be this hard. Already spent 3 hours searching the web and Firefox.

Can anyone help. I'm running Firefox 68.0.2

Found a few suggestions to go to View, Toolbar, Customize and uncheck the "use small icons" box in the overflow menu.

Sadly, there is no "use small icons" box there.

Much obliged.

During use, websites take too long to load. Have to exit out & restart

Hello,

I've been having some trouble with my Firefox install on my Windows 10 64 bit machine. I'm running FF v68.0.2 and I've been hitting some trouble. If I've been using the browser for more than 10 minutes or so with a couple (2-4) tabs open, all the browser will take forever - 45 seconds to a minute if at all - to load any website. I check my task manager and it doesn't seem to be using an exorbitant amount of CPU or memory, it just doesn't load the site. I have to exit out of FF and restart and it works fine again for a bit.

Anyone else had this? I've tried uninstalling & reinstalling, but it doesn't fix the issue. I'd prefer to keep using FF over Chrome or Edge, but I'm losing my patience with this. I've never had an issue like this in the past.

How do I stop Firefox from displaying the name of a graphic I hover over? If this is on the screen when I follow a link, sometimes it persists even when I close the whole browser! The only way to get rid of it in those cases is to log off and back on or it'll sit on the desktop and overlay anything that is displayed.

The graphic attached shows the popup that I'd like to inhibit.

When I open an article link from the Washington Post in a new page, it just sits there blank. If I hover over the address bar, the address report in he lower left of the screen shows the page trying to reach both www.washingtonpost.com and then beta.washingtonpost.com It just flickers between the two but it never actually loads the page. Chrome works without a problem. AdBlocker is off for that page.

I've seen help messages about unblocking, but my efforts haven't resulted in any change. I do notice that on the web and FF help there seem to be multiple instances of this problem. I'm not enough of a tech to wade into this, so I would really appreciate guidance. All other pages behave as expected.

When I open a web page to send out the link to I used to be able to choose which email address I wanted to use (verizon/AOL, or one of 2 business gmail addresses). now I can't send at all unless I choose 1 gmail address under options tool. what happened? I use the different email addresses for different audiences, so I can't mix them. My windows default mail app lists all my email addresses.

For some specific reason I uninstalled Chrome - probably something to do with security, I guess but then I seemed to find the answer and it had nothing to do with Chrome. I've therefore tried to re-install it but failed. I can download it and save it but when I try to run and load it nothing happens. Any answers will be appreciated.

With my advanced years I spend far too much time browsing Imgur and Reddit but I like doing so - they're relaxing, informative, sometimes provocative sites and they suit me well. However of late there have been problems. Firefox (since it's the only browser I can use, thanks to Firefox seemingly blocking others) seems to be disabling most NSFW pictures and videos and now won't even play GIF links on those two sites. (Weirdly enough however I can watch porn on other sites, so where's the problem?) Sure, this might be a European setting but I can find no other information to help me unlock this setting so any information will be appreciated. And yes, I've emptied all my cookies, etc. but to no avail.

I am trying to find a video on How to make Firefox start when Windows startup?

There are instructions on how to do it but I get confused really fast. I like videos to show me.

you have to do that in Windows 10 autostart folder in the start menu. You can do that by: 1. Press the Windows Logo Key + R, type shell:startup, and then select OK. This opens the Startup folder. 2. find the app you're looking to add or remove, and drag and drop it in the folder or copy it, then Paste the shortcut to your app into the Startup folder to have it run at startup.
