In last couple of the most recent versions of both Firefox and Firefox Enterprise, Access files with ACCDB extensions will not open from a link on an html page. Basically, it will show an error in firefox. It can be saved to the local desktop if we set the option to do so, but we would like to be able to open it only. The file is on a network. We've also tried opening the file in several other browsers (chrome, edge, etc.) and get the same results in all of them except IE. That remains the only browser we can open an Access file in with a link. Microsoft Word and Excel files appear to still be opening fine.

Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

Hi, The last two times Mozilla has crashed I have not been able to restore my previous session because session restorer is not working properly.

The about:sessionrestore tab appears as it always used to but the page is not loading properly and now appears completely blank with nothing to click on. In addition the Restore Previous Session option in the menu is also greyed out.

Think this may be a bug that needs fixing as has never been an issue in the past. I'm just getting fed up of having to go and find everything again!

Any ideas?

Does anyone have an idea and can point me to the right direction?

I get the "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue" error on my university's website. This started today. Nobody else has this problem. All other websites work fine. On chrome, same message but it allows me to continue. Firefox does not allow me to set an exception. So now I will be forced to switch to another browser because I can no longer access this information unless there is some way to fix this.

I was trying in to a website that I used all day yesterday trying to get information to file for funds due me from my husband's military account. I was in and out of the site several times yesterday and need to get another form printed out to complete my requests. For some reason, it will not pull it up again. Just says it cannot access the website and even trying again and again, I cannot get it to work. I HAVE to have these so I can begin receiving funds my husband paid in for me over the years. I am getting upset.

I wonder if someone could help on some questions about `GC` on `firefox`.

    • Q1-** Is possible to call the action performed when I click on the button `GC` using javascript?

https://i.stack.imgur.com/JgoNx.png

    • Q2-** on `about:config` there's an option `javascript.options.gc_delay.full`, is this option the same than clicking on the button `gc` on `about:memory`?

https://i.stack.imgur.com/dimKW.png

    • Q3-** I'm searching about of what of these enumerated options does, and found that:

`1-` Is the default amount of time to wait from the user being idle to starting a shrinking GC.

`2-` `javascript.options.gc_delay` ??

`3-` `javascript.options.gc_delay.full` ??

`4-` `javascript.options.ion.full.threshold` ??

If someone knows the answer to these questions.

Printing from Firefox is really slow--2-3 minutes before the print menu appears, and then another minute before the printer actually goes to work. "Printing" to a .pdf file takes just a long before the file appears on the desktop.

The problem is uniform across all the websites I've tried it on.

I don't have the problem with Safari or Chrome.

Restarting Firefox with add-ons disabled makes no difference. Deleting the printer setting didn't help. Resetting all Firefox printer settings didn't help. Refreshing Firefox helped once, but only for the first print job after the refresh, then the problem reappeared.

This issue started fairly recently, maybe when Firefox v.84 appeared (?)

I'm using Firefox 84.0.2 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on a late 2012 iMac.

This problem does not show up in the family's MacBook Pros, which have the same version of Firefox, but newer OS versions.

I'm resistant to updating the OS, because too many of the apps I use regularly don't play nicely with the newer versions of macOS.

Help!

Thanks, Wimsey

Firefox has a "list all tabs" button, which looks like a "v" in the tabs bar, next to the plus. It works great but when I maximize the window (not F11 full screen, but Windows OS Maximize Window), this button disappears. Seems like a bug; I can't think why you would want that button to be removed when the window is maximized.

I recently updated Windows, and now Firefox is refusing to load any webpages. Whenever I try to load a page nothing happens and the main part of the webpage fails to load and the main body of the browser is grey and empty.

It also won't load the Options menu. Uninstalling and reinstalling hasn't changed anything.

This issue doesn't happen in my other browsers.

Good day,

Since updating windows 10 to version 20h2, Firefox is Laggy and never done this before updating windows10 to 20h2. I would seriously look into this as MS.Edge is working smooth but all other browsers are lagging. Microsoft has done something with the update which is making all other browsers lag except for theirs. This is unfair practice as we all like using Firefox and Microsoft wants to take the monopoly with Edge. Please Firefox Team resolve this issue or please look into it as i am not the only one experiencing this issue after updating windows 10 in recent days.

Hello, we develop an angular application. One of our users couldn't login any more. He uses Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) under Mac. He get's the error `ERROR DOMException: The quota has been exceeded` in Console. Reloading Page even with COMMAND+R didn't work. We deleted the cashed files under settings, as displayed in https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/gallery/images/2018-04-29-04-08-27-fabea4.png (with both checkboxes). It only worked when we deleted the file webappstorage.sqlite in profile folder. Is that a bug?

Thanks in advance.
