Hello

When I go to add the website, https://gbot.run , under the certificates tab, it tells me that it is already valid. Yet, on the website itself, firefox is blocking certain images and making it impossible to use for its purpose.

I am using firefox 64.0 on windows 8.1 Pro.

My laptop is technology from 2012, and software and the OS are meant for 2019. So it was running slow when I tried to remove something from the download history, and "clear downloads" is right below that option when you right-click on something.

I'm guessing there's no way to restore them :/

Prior to the most recent update, if I clicked on a link, it opened in a new window. If I closed the window, I was back where I started.

Now, links open in the same tab, no matter how I select options under "TABS". Getting back to where I started can be very tedious and confusing.

Opening links in a new tab would be OK, but that doesn't work either. All links open in the same tab.

How can I improve the way links open?

Dear Whomever,

After my last posting in reference to Firefox 64.0 regarding browser trouble, I deleted almighty Firefox from my PC for several days and went to using Internet Explorer.

However, as I.E. 11 turned out to have its own issues regarding Facebook and Twitter, I went in search of a decent and executable download for Firefox to see if anything different would occur. My earlier grief with the ability to Log-In to my “Capital One” account had abated, but now I have a different question. How do I go about removing/deleting the “Download” indicator in Firefox 64.0? In addition, may anyone be able to explain why it is that the add-on known as “AdBlockPlus” cannot be tweaked/adjusted for websites where I don’t want it to be used?

Respectfully,

Gregory P. Falasz

I've set everything to German (!), But Firefox still assumes that I prefer Spanish although I do not speak Spanish, probably because I installed Firefox for the first time, when I went on holiday with my notebook in Spain and used Spanish Wi-Fi. Since then, many platforms such as LinkedIn or Google always open up in Spanish for the first time. What can I do to ONLY get German or English at the first call of new pages? With the Chrome browser, the pages ALWAYS come in German or English, never in Spanish.

Hi My firefox freezes when i open this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAU_8GEgSwI

I cant do anything in the interface which goes glitchy after a while, forcing me to shut it from task bar and restart. It took me a while to understand the problem was with the youtube video. If i dont open that link, everything works normal. Also, Earlier (till yesterday) i was watching that video without any such problem.

I tried updating and reinstalling firefox completely but still facing the same issue with this particular video. I cant figure out whats the problem !

Please help.

Just for the past few days 12-19-18 or so I've noticed this happening. I'll get an email, click "print" and it will open the email in a pop-up window. I select "Adobe PDF" as the printer, and then a window usually comes up showing the progress, and then it opens the pdf in Adobe Acrobat.

Recently, however, when that window comes up and shows the progress bar, it freezes. Sometimes I get error messages (shown in screenshots) but mostly I have to go to Task Manager, shut down firefox.exe processes, and I can't print the file to a PDF at all anymore. When I use this feature in Chrome, it works fine. I mean, it used to in Firefox, too, I don't know what changed.
