I recently purchased a Sandisk Ultra Flair flash drive because I wanted to password protect some files. The flash drive requires me to download the Private Access software from the Western Digital web site. When I try to do this the Mozilla browser states "Malicious Download Detected" and cancels the download. Does anyone have any suggestions? I went to the Privacy and Security part of Settings, and unchecked the Deceptive Content setting, but Firefox still would not let me download the software. Perhaps the change to the setting I tried did not register in Settings, but here I am asking for your help. Thanks.

Since pretty much the beginning of the internet, pop-ups were deemed a significant annoyance, so much so it diminished and ruined the users’ browsing experience and significantly reduced efficiencies. Hence the addition of pop-up blocking settings to all browsers long ago.

However, for some unknown reason Firefox gives Google a free pass and allows their “sign-in” pop-up that pop-ups seemingly on every website you visit where you then have to then manually close the pop-up on pretty much every single website you visit - even though you have the pop-up blocker setting on ( and the only way to turn off a pop-up blocker is to specifically add a website to allow for pop-ups).

This is absolutely horrible and not acceptable. If you have the pop-up setting on, no pop-up should be allowed to get through no matter what it is or the source. If you allow one pop-up to continue then you should be allowing hundreds of thousands of other pop-ups as well. But you wouldn’t as you know this would be unacceptable, but again, somehow Firefox allows Google’s pop-up to go through and it pop-ups on pretty much every single website you visit.

Note that I selected Privacy and Security Setting as the "topic" above as that is were Firefox has it's pop-up setting (and where you can add exceptions to allow pop-ups for specific websites)

Hey!

When you're going to fix the Ctrl + C issue?!

I'm sick and tired of restarting your f*g browser each time I need to paste something in a form on a page. It's frozen each time I press Ctrl+C somewhere outside your browser and return to it. I am forced to close it and restart it! It's been a year since this bug or even more.

Thank you

I'm on Firefox Developer Edition 119.0b9 (32-bit) and Windows 11 Pro 22H2 but I've been experiencing this problem a lot longer ago even before upgrading to Windows 11. The first thing I open in my computer is Firefox, it gets the window itself quickly but the page stays blank with the gray loading dot going right and left for nearly 10 minutes before the page loads and Firefox works normally. I don't experience any issues while browsing the internet after that long loading but it's really annoying especially when I'm in a hurry and I don't have 10 minutes to stare at a blank page.

How do I make it so that firefox automatically show the download panel or download button (either way is fine) AND automatically hides the button (not just panel) when the downloaded file is opened? (perhaps a setting to automatically clear the history?)

I tried searching around but couldn't find a solution for automatically hiding the button. There used to be a config option to automatically delete download history. but I can't find it anymore (I'm on firefox 119)

Thanks for the help.

I'm trying to reset my Firefox account password. I know my password is correct, because I just signed into my Firefox account with it.

Every time I try to change the password however, it tells me my old password is incorrect. I know it's not incorrect because as stated, I just signed into my account with it.

Not sure exactly how to fix this one, any suggestions welcome.

Middle Mouse clicking on links anywhere else works as it should, it only do it on twitter for some reasons. Shift middle mouse doesn't work either

But clicking on an IMAGE on twitter does work normally.

I switched to Firefox DE because I wasn't able to install 3rd party extensions. Just now, my middle click isn't working. I can't use the middle click to open/close tabs and to open links in a new tab. I checked my settings, tried a new profile, nothing works except in normal Firefox, the middle mouse does work, but I don't want to switch to that. My middle click also works in Edge and other apps, but please fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank you.


PS. Please add biometrics to Firefox, like how Google did with Chrome.

I have contacted Traveler's Insurance Tech Help and they said the problem of looping back on the signin page happened with the latest update from FireFox.

They informed me that they have been trying to find the problem BUT it would seem that they would contact FireFox RATHER than suggesting that EDGE, GOOGLE or other browsers be used.

I can signin on EDGE, however I prefer to FireFox...

Here's hoping you can find the solution....

Let me know if you need me to help....

My Firefox (just updated to latest version) will not show videos from Ring.com. This has been going on for over a month and spans several version releases. However, I can get other browsers (Safari, Chrome, Vivaldi) to view the videos. (I am using a Mac, latest operating system.) I have just been trying to view a video from my Ring account for the last 10 minutes and it will not load and show.
