With Firefox 84.0 (64-bit) and older versions, not all visited websites change color. I use standard (default) settings in Firefox. Up to now I was not logged in, i.e. I had no Firefox account.

As an example, go to this website: https://www.schubert-verlag.de/aufgaben/uebungen_b1/sb1_uebungen_index.htm ... and select each link from "Kapitel 1" onwards in turn and return ("Go back one page") to the above page again. The first 20 links are correctly displayed in blue. Under "Kapitel 6" the next three links do not flip to blue when visited. The fourth link does correctly flip to blue indicating a visited link. See attached screenshot of top part of the web page.

Can you reproduce the problem? I'd be happy to see this problem resolved. Thanks!

Hi,

I've just installed the latest Firefox update (84.0) and now I get the following message where my bookmarks sidebar should be:

XML Parsing Error: no element found Location: chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml Line Number 1, Column 1:

The history sidebar works, just not the bookmarks one.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix it?

Hi. The message "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..." has appeared at the top of my Firefox window. I don't think it's been there for more than a couple of days, so it must have been added by a recent update. I already have my bookmarks available just fine, so is there a way to get rid of the message? Thanks!

I submitted a crash report: bp-28bfafdf-37b2-4a4c-b56d-19c690201216 I cannot start Firefox. It crashes with 30 seconds of attempting to open it. It crashes in safe mode, too. I refreshed Firefox. I have installed the latest Firefox (12/16/2020). I have uninstalled Flash Player. I have rebooted. I have no startup.*.cache file in my profiles directory. I have only startup_shaders. I do have two Firefox\Profiles\*.default-* directories. One was created years ago and the other was created on 10th December.

I am using Windows 10 and up until last week have never had any problem with Firefox. Now when I log into my Telstra account, I can see all the services available except Telstra Webmail. When I select Webmail I just receive 3 flashing square dots but the page will not load. I am able the access my Telstra Webmail from Internet Explorer but not Firefox. Telstra has suggested that I use Google Chrome instead of Firefox but I would prefer to use Firefox so hopefully someone can help me with this issue.

I am totally blind, and quite often websites displays a question something like, "Website X would like to access your location. Allow?" My issue is that I cannot find a keyboard-only method to answer that pop-up. Most of the time, I cannot find the "click" control to say either "allow" or "don't allow." I hope that there is a way that I can respond to those pop-ups without sighted assistance because I do not have such assistance readily available, and the pop-up apparently disappears after a few seconds. The old Internet Explorer had a shortcut ALT-N to reach that bar or whatever it was so that a blind person could enter a response. Firefox needs something like that function if it doesn't already exist so that we who are blind would have access to this type of pop-up equal that of sighted users.

Instead of showing the origin of a pdf file, Firefox now downloads it an shows file:///C:/Users/Me/AppData/Local/Temp/Maribyrnong-Bicycle-Strateg-2020-2030-4.pdf That's not at all helpful guys. Because I don't get the address from google either, they just have their own reference. I have to open internet explorer to let me copy the address so I can send it to a mate in an email. Just a bit of feedback.

Hi, I have FF 85, there is some setting that doesn't allow a new tab to open, without me having to give permission each time (another step and a time waster). Everything I have found, tells me to go to general settings and then go to "advanced" at the bottom of the general list and to change the setting there. There is no "advanced link to click, so I can't change this damn setting. This drives me crazy, as all help tells me to "go somewhere, that is not there". Help........why is it so difficult to change this simple setting, that was probably set incorrectly at some time in the past......... Help
