After I open the Firefox browser, a window opens:

We couldn't create the data directory - Microsoft Edge can't read and write to its data directory: C:\ProgramData\McAfee\WebAdvisor\UIHost.exe_pr]S-1-5-21-1684796555-4169006821-2310766321-1005\wa1656781557\EBWebView

Tried to re-intall Edge, does not work, cleared all cookies, etc. Still get this message once I open the Firefox Browser.

Any suggestions how to clear this problem?

Firefox is showing me the same blocked (and cancelled) download on each startup. Firefox tries to download same file every time I open it. I have seen this issue in several threads. I want to share my experience in resolving it:

In your Firefox profile folder (%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox) look for the file download*.json (the asterix represents some characters I did not record). If it contains the strange link for that file he is trying to download all over again at each startup, delete the text ad save the now empty file. At the following startup, the issue should be resolved and the download*.json should disappear from your profile folder.

I hope this helps.

Firefox has assigned my .cpp files as type "Git", but .cpp files should be type "Visual Studio 2019". How do I change the type "Git" to "Visual Studio 2019" for .cpp files, so when I want to save or open a .cpp file the Firefox Applications matrix assigns .cpp files to Visual Studio 2019?

There are two websites (at least) in which I've been receiving the same error message (see attached). Because these were sites I need for work, I first worked with IT Services and they first suggested clearing the cache. That did seem to work for about a week and a half. However, 2 days ago, it started happening again and now clearing the cache does not seem to work. I know it's a firefox issue because the pages load fine on Chrome.

Hi,

I recently created a new profile in Firefox as I regularly do, as a consequence I found that the "Page Setup" menu option has been removed in a past release.

I can't fathom why this has been removed, I "print" plenty of PDF's and like to customise the Headers/Footers based on what I'm "printing".

Searching for a fix suggests either installing a 3rd Party Add-on or "hacking" the "about:config". This is not user friendly in the slightest for something that has been around for literal decades.

Forcing a user to install an Add-on or even go through "about:config" and set "print.show_page_setup_menu" to true is bonkers!

Yes, bonkers!

Please restore the "Page Setup" option as default, please don't remove it or stealth hide it.

Sincerely,

Jay

Tried uninstall, update, troubleshoot mode, restart, clear cache, malware detect, task mgr, etc. Windows 10 software, drivers, firewall, hardware, memory, etc are ok.

Firefox hangs, no rhyme or reason, random pages, every hour or so.

Am I the only one having issue?

Drag-drop bookmarking broken, Firefox 102.0 (64 bit)

I do not know which update began exhibiting this apparent reversion bug, as i have just returned home from several weeks in the hospital due to a heart attack, and do not know how many updates i missed.

When doing a drag-drop of a URL from either a link on a page OR the address line at the top of the browser, I will receive a "sanity failure" error, ranging from an empty NON-URL file, to an OS error complaining about being unable to access an attempted directory destination.

If the link I am dragging is bereft of illegal characters (i.e., ":" -- a colon), the action will succeed.

If there IS a colon, the text to the LEFT of the colon will become the filename. The colon and everything to its right will be truncated. And, the file will be a zero-byte file of unknown (to me) type.

Other illegal characters in the page's Title field will produce more dramatic misbehavior.

PLEASE revert to the previous behavior (i.e., filtering the Title before creating the filename for the bookmark file)!

Earlier versions of Firefox (again, I do not know when this began) NEVER exhibited this behavior.

Where I work I use a state corrections inmate search to get stats on our incoming prisoners. I used to be able to look up the name, get the stats, hit the back button and continue on to the next inmate. Recently when I hit the back button and enter the name, I get an error and have to go completely out of the corrections site and start again. I'll ad that this site does use the "I am not a Robot" security. I do not have this problem in Explorer. What happened? I'd prefer to use Firefox as it is much more secure. Thanks

hi

I get messages to install new updates that assure me that my open windows will be restored but that is not true. I have done installs and my windows were not restored. I have been careful to make sure that I do it when I get the message assuring me that my windows will be restored and yet again. They are not. I have done what the help section recommends and try to restore them from Settings and History and was not able to. This really sucks. I do lots of research and need to switch back and forth. Mozilla can you do it better? Forcing the update when I am not ready sucks. There has got to be a better way! It just happened again tell me how to fix this please!

Hello, I've tried to use google but Firefox won't let me. I have no Idea how to fix this, but had the same problem yesterday and it went away automaticly and now it's back again. Does someone know how to fix this problem permanently?

"Kein Verbindungsversuch unternommen: Mögliches Sicherheitsproblem

Firefox hat ein mögliches Sicherheitsrisiko erkannt und daher www.google.com nicht aufgerufen, denn die Website benötigt eine verschlüsselte Verbindung.

Was können Sie dagegen tun?

www.google.com verwendet eine Sicherheitstechnologie namens "HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)", durch welche Firefox nur über gesicherte Verbindungen mit der Website verbinden darf. Daher kann keine Ausnahme für die Website hinzugefügt werden.

Am wahrscheinlichsten wird das Problem durch die Website verursacht und Sie können nichts dagegen tun.

Falls Sie sich in einem Firmennetzwerk befinden oder Antivirus-Software einsetzen, so können Sie jeweils deren IT-Support kontaktieren. Das Benachrichtigen des Website-Administrators über das Problem ist eine weitere Möglichkeit.

Weird thing is, that there clearly is an certificate.
