Firefox, Captcha problems and live plugs

I use Firefox 79. I have removed all the extensions except my antivirus (Avast Ultimate) which includes a VPN but the VPN is currently turned off. I have Firefox 79 installed on two computers, one of which connects by CPL ("powerline adapters/homeplugs") and the other connects to the router by an ethernet cable. My Firefox settings are identical on both machines and I have no Captcha problems with the one using the ethernet cable. I also completely turned off my home network and reset it - fibre optic box, router, both computers, and unplugged the CPLs - and then restarted them from the optic box forwards one by one. It made no difference, the CPL problem still exists.

I sought help on the Microsoft Community Forum and sent the two blokes I was working with all the above info and they concluded that the problem wasn't with the CPLs which, incidentally are TP-LINK, model TL-PA7010P(KitFR) with the Version 3 software. All three lights on each of the CPLs are solid green. I have also informed TP-Link France of the problem and I'm waiting for their reply. Following advice from one of the blokes on the MS Forum, I ran a Speedtest.net on the CPL machine and the results were: downloading 91.99Mbps and uploading 87.47Mpbs and the Ping response was 20. (This is all nonsense to me but may help you.) Both people on the MS Forum concluded that the problem does not lie with the CPL.

I'm going to replace the CPLs with a 30m ethernet cable (less aesthetically pleasing and more encumbering) to see if that resolves the issue.

Recently (within the last two weeks) I've noticed that my mouse cursor will randomly jump to the upper corner of my screen while viewing a page within Firefox. From my observation it's only happening within Firefox, and the only variable I can think of is that I started using containers to visually differentiate my tabs. I've since tried to revert back, but the problem persists.

I'm running a Surface Book (Gen 1) with dock and multiple monitors. If there's any additional information needed to better diagnose the problem I'm happy to supply it if it means finding a resolution.

Hi For the last few weeks I've been having a problem with GMail on Firefox. It happens on 2 PCS, a Dell Inspiron 5770 (laptop) and a Dell Inspiron 3264 AIO (desktop) both running Windows 10 Home Version 1903 Build 18362.959 installed in July 2019 and August 2019 Both with Firefox 79.0

These problems occur on Firefox only. They do not happen on Chrome, which I am reducued to using on both PCs for my gmails .They do not happen in a private window of Firefox.

The problems - which I assume are linked due to their occuring in the same time fram 1) On starting GMail by www.gmail.com in the address line, in a new tab, nothing happens. the screen remains blank. I start again, same command, and it changes to https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox and gmail starts. I can stop and start GMail with no problems. If I stop and restart Firefox then the problem occurs again If I start in an existing tab, by typing gmail.com over the existing page address, it reverts to the page address I overwrote. If I start some other page, e.g. Kayak and then GMail: blank page Sometimes if I start anotherGoogle app first, the problem does not occur. It's not consistent the problem occurs occasionally, but not often, with other google Apps: Google, Translate, Drive, Photos, Maps, Contacts, Calendar

2) After running fo some time, GMail seems to lose connection with the internet (a WiFi) It says something like lost connection retrying in 10 s and then 20 s and then more seconds. It doesn't reconnect.

My homepage is an html page with a list of my favourite links; I have been using it for some time and it is the same on Chrome, Opera and Edge

What I have done, step by step I searched forums, including this one. I disabled all add-ons: AdBlock-Plus, FacebookContainer and FoxClocks. I cleared all cookies for GMail I cleared all cookies I cleared history I cleared everything I could find. Sometimes the problem went away, but it always came back.

Any suggestions, workarounds, fixes or just words of comfort would be greatly appreciated.

As a researcher and writer I'm constantly on the web, and have many downloaded book marks that were organized by folders on the Menu bar. But this old laptop seems to crash frequently when I'm using Firefox. After the most recent crash most of the folders had vanished - three did not.

How can I restore those missing folders to the menu bar? Redoing them is a possibility, but would take a great deal of time.

Thanks,

DMS

I use the the bookmarks toolbar extensively, I have nested folders in the toolbar. Recently one of my folders disappeared, I blame my wife but it could have been me... I am hoping it got dragged to another folder but have not been able to find it yet. I used the "show all bookmarks" page and searched and found one of the links in the missing folder but I am unable to tell where the bookmark is stored in my hierarchical organization. Can anybody give me some pointers on finding my missing folder?

Thanks!

My windows 10 is forcing me to update windows. If i ignore the warnings. it just kills my unsaved work and restarts my computer. To make it worse. After I start Firefox again is starts to update too. And after the update all my Open tabs and session info is completely killed. The first time it was annoying. be now it is a reason to go back to an other browser. The last time i checked i was still the owner of my laptop. and not Microsoft and not Mozilla!

If this bug is not fixed I uninstall Firefox. I need a browser i can rely on. not just doing what it wants.

Hello,

On my website I have a button to download my book in EPUB format. You can see it here: https://imwithlorac.com/get-the-book/#downloads

In the other browsers the file is downloaded, but in Mozilla it opens directly in the browser and unless you have installed in Mozilla an EPUB reader, a page with the raw file opens which does not make any sense. It's the same with the MOBI format. On the other hand, with the PDF format the PDF book opens because Mozilla can open PDF files. What I want is that it doesn't open, but that it downloads when people click on the link.

Does anyone know how?

Thanks
