Every time I shut down my computer I have to reset all my preferences and dowload adblock plus. The installer is still on my desktop and I can't remove it. I've put it in the apps file. This never happened before and I've been using firefox for at least 10 years. This just started happening with the new version of firefox. Please help as it's driving me crazy!

One feature at www.weather.com (Weather Channel) is their "weather in motion" feature which loads interactive weather radars. For some reason, this is not working on my Firefox browser. It works fine in Chrome and Edge. The weather.com website loads just fine but the radar data (overlay on a map) will not load. IT WORKS FINE IN SAFE MODE. So i tried to disable all of my plug-in's, extensions and hardware acceleration in Firefox in regular mode. Still doesn't work. I created a new profile. Still doesn't work. I disabled the tracker feature in Firefox on that web page. Still doesn't work. I uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Flash. Still doesn't work. Any ideas???

Hi Im writing this post from my kids laptop but the problem is with my computer. I was in the middle of something when computer froze and it is now dead. I was able to check if I can access files from live cd and yeah I can see my files but I need to reinstall windows7. When I do it I will loose my files. I need to recover few more things than just files. The question to you is... how can I recover all my tabs, my open session, all logins, passwords etc in Firefox?. Im hoping it is stored somehow deep in windows and I can just copy/paste these files to new reinstalled windows7

It has worked fine on this system and this browser before and still works fine in Vivaldi. No changes in AV software and no improvement when all extensions disabled. What could be causing it in FF (latest stable, Win 10)?

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

So the problem is that Firefox doesn't play any HTML5 content. Weirdly except for Youtube. Youtube works just fine. But every other Website shows errors. Even songsterr.com. I'm using latest Firefox 76.0.1 on a recent Ubuntu 20. 04 LTS installation. Usual troubleshooting like updates doesnt work because "sudo apt-get upgrade" doesn't find any updates. I tried the same websites in the latest version of Chromium and they work perfectly fine. I couldn't find a mistake in the firefox settings or something so I'm confused. Disabling Plugins didn't change anything and turning of tracking protection didn't either. What is the Problem here and how can I solve it?

I believe the latest updates for Firefox made some changes so that a fixed background image in a WordPress cover block does not stay fixed. It used to work about 2 weeks ago, now it does not. But, the fixed background behaves as expected in MS Edge.

https://www.cemalekin.com/test/layout-test/ https://www.cemalekin.com/test/test-page/

In the first linked page there is one such block, in the second one there are two. None works in Firefox, either on my Surface Book 2 laptop or my desktop with a 27" monitor. The same pages will show the expected behavior when viewed in MS Edge.

I tried the following:

  • Restarted FF with all the add-ons disabled
  • Refreshed Firefox
  • Removed the entire custom CSS from the site
  • Tried different themes

Nothing made any difference. I have been a Firefox user for a long time and do not want to switch. I also want the visitors using Firefox be able to have the same experience. Any suggestion to fix this problem will be much appreciated. Or a repaired version of Firefox release will be most welcome.

Thank you.

So earlier I downloaded Firefox for my Macbook Air and made the change from Chrome to Firefox. I followed all the instructions online of transferring data from Chrome to Firefox and all seemed great. I just restarted my computer because I was having issues with my internet, and went to reopen everything again. Firefox isn't saved like a normal application like it should, it's still acting like I'm installing it from the .dmg each time. Also, it hasn't saved any of the transferred data/settings I did earlier today. I have no idea what's going on?

Hello.

I configured Firefox so that whenever I close the browser only the Browsing & Download History and Form & Search History to be deleted, so that I don't have to login on every relevant website (facebook, youtube, mail, etc.) It was working fine until a few days (~1 week ago) when it started logging me out of some websites randomly and I basically have to login again. I basically close the computer and the next day I find myself logged out of some websites.

Did this happen to anyone else?

Hello. If you want to use the "video downloadhelper" extension, then you will be offered to download an additional program to your computer and install it. I used VirusTotal and found some dangerous software. I found in Google what kind of virus it is and after reading information about it, I did not want to install this program. I think it can be dangerous for other users as well. See screenshots below.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox Nightly and it just updated to 84.0a1 (2020-10-30) (64-bit). With this update, the "Other Bookmarks" folder appears on the Bookmarks Toolbar. It's situated on the far right, after the 2 right arrows that show the rest on the bookmarks from the toolbar. I've looked into the settings to see if this new addition can be hidden or removed, but I couldn't find anything. Can somebody tell me how I can hide it ?
