My computer was loading VERY slowly so I did as suggested and clicked on Firefox (can't remember what it was called). I get my emails properly, but now I don't receive my You Tube notifications that I'm subscribed to. What went wrong? and how can I fix it?

Today was about the 3rd or 4th time in the last few months that I boot up the PC and find that the Firefox exe has disappeared. So frustrating. Yes I can and do re-install, but it's 30-45 mins each time. Does anyone know what might be causing this. I am very careful with downloads and use only licensed software. Could it be the VIPRE anti-virus/firewall? Running on Windows 10 - everything is up to date and usually very stable.

I have html files on my website that, for some reason, when Firefox prints them to PDF it prints the text as images instead of text... except text that is in italics, which it prints as text just fine. I have no idea what the heck is going on here. The same files print fine from other browsers. The file I'm testing is here: https://universaltheosophy.com/hpb/transactions.html

Here's an example PDF printed from the above html file: https://universaltheosophy.com/hpb/transactions-text-print-firefox.pdf

Notice on the 2nd page, only the italic text is printed as text.

Any help with this will be much appreciated!

Edit: had a friend test print this in Firefox on a Mac and the PDF came out proper. I'm on a PC, Win 10.

Support, I was trying to transfer some xrp crypto to my hard wallet when I got a pop up window that said firefox was requesting I touch my security key. I have no idea where that would be so Ripple.com would not complete the transaction. I tried several times to no avail. Can you please advise me what I'm doing wrong or tell me how to get around the problem.

Thank you Albert Clark

Current version of FF:

I have html code from a previous, old, project that did run on an office intranet that used Firefox as our internet browser. It's totally basic html. I've tried to get the html code to run on my PC on this current FF browser and it just does not, nor are there any error codes. WHY?

My html has exactly the same opening and closing items as you can see in the book on html for "Dummies."

I need to see the code in operation so I can update to a new project I'm starting. What do I do?

If anyone wants to see my code, I'll gladly post it.

Thanks,

Pat

1. Right click in a website and "Save Page as.." it. - (image one.jpg) 2. Observe if it gets a yellow point for a failed download in "Downloads" (ctrl-j) - (image two.jpg) 3. Manual retry. Success! - (image three.jpg)

But you will never ever get Firefox work on the first try to save a page. This doesn't work for years.

Why? Even with deactivated addons/safe mode.

Hello all!

I recently logged in to Firefox so I could have access to all of my bookmarks and log in credentials that I had on another computer - but when I logged in, it said it was synced, but nothing has populated. I've had to swap out computers a couple times in the past and never had this issue. I logged in and shortly after my bookmarks and passwords populated to my account. Any idea how I can get my bookmarks and passwords? I'm hopelessly lost without them! 

I appreciate your help!

After updating to Firefox 79.0 on August 10th, I am unable to load Gmail. When I try to go to Gmail by either 'gmail.com' or 'mail.google.com' the browser will load but will never take me off the current page and eventually stop without any error messages.

I have tried deleting all website cookies and data, reinitialize storage, clearing browser cache, disabling hardware acceleration and trying in safe mode. Deleting cookies and data fixed it for several hours but then it quickly stopped working again.

I've attempted to load Gmail on both Chrome and Edge and it worked fine on both of them.

Recently, when I wish to download a file, the download fails. The only way I can correct this is by doing a Refresh of Firefox from the Windows Programs Uninstall page. Once refreshed, the download works just fine. This happens almost every day. Is my version of FF corrupted or is something else amiss.

When I try to log in to My BT, with correct details, I get a page come up with 'arcot authentication adapter controller'. It stays on this blank page and will not log me in. I am using W10 and FF 79.0.

If I enter the same details on my other PC, which uses Waterfox, it goes straight in.

Any help would be appreciated.

Print preview shows a single page, which is totally appropriate for the content. It says "1 of 1" at the bottom. Click the print button, and it prints 2 pages. (No changes done to formatting, selected printer or anything else.) The second page is completely unnecessary and consists only of a header line at the top, identical to the first page, and a footer at the bottom, which says "2 of 2" and the date and time.

'Print preview is NOT a preview' of what it actually is going to print and reformats the document without warning or permission.
