I have a backup on my portable drive, where the F.Fox files cannot be deleted, not with WinRar either, they cannot be renamed. These are system files for F.Fox. The folder location is AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/ggsw864i.default-release/storage/default. In this folder I have had several files that belongs to the long file name category. They are compressed, cannot separate them by opening and cannot rename them for to assign a shorten name. There is no Properties to open. The files starting string: https+++ I have several data on this HD and it would be a huge task move the content then reformatting the drive. I did try the Windows Command Prompt rename method - it does not work either. Any help would be appreciated!

I searched for an official portable version of firefox and one of the first results was this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1247235 anyways this seems dissapointing since he says we should only download from official sources and at the same time there is no official portable version, can i be honest.. this sucks. You know time passed since that thread was created (3 years...) but still no offfical version, why?

So it seems to most known source for firefox portable is this site: https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable I know you don't represent this website but still i have to ask how secure is it?

Also, how are chances mozilla will work on a portable official version? any plans?

How can I prevent websites from tracking my mouse cursor? I was searching for the question for a long time and couldn't find any answers.

Basically. I open a site, I want to click on Back or close the tab and it sends a pop up like "wait, don't go!" etc.

Any ideas? I think about extension or option in settings/configs.

I guess like my question is very unique or was skipped by search engines.

I hope for help.

UAC notification pops up every time I try to open Firefox since last update on 5/5/22. I've deselected all options that run the program as an administrator, but it still shows up every time. I've checked that no admin is selected in both the shortcut I use and in the program itself. Any suggestions?

Why does the current version of firefox have a download manager window open very time a new download is initiated? This is a nuisance. It is typical for me to download many small files in a session and having that window open every time, and having to click it away is a nuisance. Is there a way to disable this feature I haven't found?

For the first time in a week I went directly to my GMX account but couldn't se my emails, contacts or any information other than the form layouts the pages are blank, however in Opera everything is seen. Also for many months Firefox doesn't allow the Recaptures to load so many sites, and services like sending of contact forms, wont work, its extremely frustrating as Firefox has all my passwords. I could go to Pale moon is the PW's can be shared as a FF user of over 20 years it is my preferred browser and would appreciate these issues resolved please.

Somewhere around FF 86, the print preview was broken so one only gets a tiny, unreadable print preview. For a while, print.tab_modal.enabled = classic experience (false) worked. Sometime in the last few months, that was taken away and no longer works. How now do we get a print preview big enough to see and make our choices about things like scale?

I note that I run Windows 8.1 (up-to-date), Radeon HD graphics, 1280 x 1024 monitor.

Back in 2019 I learned how to set Firefox so that a website opening a new window would always include standard menus (the website could not suppress them). Now I get windows without the menus and controls I need.

I used some combination of 

dom.disable_window_open_feature.menubar

   and

dom.event.contextmenu.enabled

These haven't done the job for over a year now.

How do I do this now?

Thanks in advance, Lawrence

p.s. I note that I run Windows 8.1 (up-to-date), but have a Windows 10 I could use if it would work better there (up-to-date).

Hello, I have intermittent problems of not receiving certain emails on my Commander.net.au server. For reasons unknown emails which contain documents such as newsletters or greeting cards do not arrive in my email account. I have checked with the sender and they have definitely been sent to the correct address but never arrive. Commander claim there is no firewall to prevent this from happening. Is there a Firefox firewall that is stopping these emails?? Many thanks, Steve

Hello

After the latest Firefox update, 101.0 (64-Bit) for Windows, the text of our website can't be read anymore because it suddenly appears way too bright.

It worked since years before and still works with other browsers.

Is this a know bug with version 101 and might be fixed? Or is there any other problem?

The website is: link text

Thanks a lot, if someone can help!

Kind regards,

Wolfgang

On some Globo pages, the Reader View does not return the text content of a page. It does return content, but I don't know from where.

It does not happen on every page, and I can't figure out what the difference is between pages that work & pages that don't.

Example: https://gshow.globo.com/novelas/pantanal/noticia/pantanal-zefa-conquista-web-ao-discutir-com-guta-por-causa-de-tadeu-confira-reacoes.ghtml

I'm attaching snippets of what the web page shows and what the Reader View shows.
