Every search I perform using google is being hyjacked by yahoo. I have read that many other users are having the same problem. I have tried to follow the steps to remove the add-on or extension but when I click on "add-ons" or extensions from the menu it just opens a new blank tab in my browser. When I click on search in the preferences menu, google is the only search engine checked in all of my selections. Please help me get rid of the yahoo search.

Hola. ¿Cómo podría evitar que algunas páginas web se recarguen solas?

Fundamentalmente noto este problema cuando estoy leyendo algún artículo en un portal de noticias como clarin.com o lanacion.com.ar. Cada tanto tiempo, la página se recarga y vuelve al inicio del artículo, lo cual es muy incómodo para la lectura. He probado con poner accessibility.blockautorefresh en verdadero, pero no dió resultado. También probé una extensión llamada Stop autorefresh pero tampoco sirvió.

Una solución brutal tal vez sea desconectarme mientras leo, pero haya alguna solución más inteligente. Muchas gracias. Usando Mozilla Firefox 78.0.2

The bookmarks interaction is buggy. I have them set in my own order with folders, etc... If I move a bookmark in the list (sidebar on the main browser page or the popout library window), I'll try to move it one space down, it'll randomly move three spaces down (or whatever random thing). Try to move it one space up, won't move at all. Try to move a divider up a spot and three folders below will randomly jump someplace else. I had forgot that's why I downgraded and went back to an old version 60 something a while ago because of this very issue, and looks like it's still happening. This is VERY annoying as I rely on my bookmarks and how I have them sorted and arranged greatly. And now I can't do stuff or it will just completely jumble up the order of my folders.

I haven't changed any settings at all from the older version I was using that worked perfectly fine.

I am using Firefox on a 2013 Macbook Pro running Yosemite 10.10.5. Every week or so Firefox closes on its own. I will be using Firefox all week and then return to find that Firefox has closed and I can't restore my session. There is no crash report. Does anyone have an idea of what might be causing this to happen and what to do to prevent it? Is there a setting that I don't know about that limits session lengths? This does seem to happen at pretty regular intervals. It doesn't happen with other browsers or applications. Thanks.

My old Firefox lost the fox icon and gave the "page with crossed sticks" icon. I deleted Firefox, thinking I could just download a new copy. But when I did that, I was confronted with "Sync". I do not want to use Firefox on other devices, just my iMac. I want to click on the Firefox icon on my dock, type in what I want to find out about, and that's that. Instead, I get confronted with all kinds of gobblity-gook about Sync and can't even browse. Help!!!

With older versions of FF I used to create YT playlists of history videos and lay down to enjoy the audio. Can't do that any longer ! Randomly the "Allow Video and Audio" settings revert to "Don't Allow Video and Audio". And I have to roll out of the bed onto the bad knee to reset it -- several times an hour. It used to play all night without intervention.

A while ago on Westernjournal.com I clicked into a story and the autoplay audio almost blew me out of the chair -- though the settings were "Don't Allow Video and Audio". And the videos on that site now float and autoplay -- something FF just can't deal with through many releases. No combination of relevant about:config settings work -- I have tried them all. IF FF can't deal with all of this -- just lemme know ! I can handle it and look for a different browser. What I want to avoid most is running in circles again for hours trying to solve all this.

I want to transfer the profile from an old PC running Windows 7 to a new PC running Windows 10. I've copied the old profile to a USB stick. After much searching I've found the profile created by the new installation, but it seems to appear in two folders: AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles, and AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles. Should I simply substitute the old profile for both instances of the new profile? NB This message is posted from a different platform (Mac) Thanks

Hi


When I try to log in to online banking, I usually have to enter an ID, password, then some memorable information. Since some point in the last 3 weeks, Firefox won't proceed past the page with memorable information. It takes me back to the first page where ID is entered, as I've been automatically redirected there. So, logging in is not possible. Initially I thought that this was a Mac issue and not a Firefox issue, because it was actually affecting both my browsers, Firefox and Safari. However, after rebooting my wireless connection, the issue seems to be resolved on Safari (although that program is an old version). I tried clearing the cookies and the cache, then reopening Firefox afresh. The problem persisted.

Version of Firefox is 78.1.0esr (64-bit). Have already tried updating to the latest version.

Regards Matt
