There are several posts on this site regarding uninstalling Firefox. I am running current Firefox on current W10 64bit 1903 desktop PC using Ethernet with Spectrum as my ISP. I am having a couple of problems in Firefox that are not happening in current Chrome. 1. Page-not-found 2-8 times a day that resolve every time by simply clicking the "retry" (or something close to that) button. I reset my router to "factory" and installed most current router firmware but that did not help. Netgear Support has been unable to help. 2. In current LastPass addon, I have to re-login to LastPass every time I start Firefox - did not used to do that (a year ago), and in Chrome or Edge that does not happen. I have re-installed the LastPass add-on. I have upgraded Firefox many times and have cleared history/cache many times. So now I want to COMPLETELY remove Firefox, reboot, and then install Firefox from scratch. Can someone please point me to the web page that tells me how to properly remove all of Firefox so that I can re-download/install it from the beginning? I do not care about retaining my Firefox settings or other from my current Firefox install.

Hi, I've problems with syncing my FF account (including passwords). On a fresh installed system FF sync isn't retriving data (bookmarks, passwords etc.). Although on both systems I can see the devices in the account view.

Attached logfiles: System with data https://pastebin.com/A7yxEdpp New System https://pastebin.com/yJWdnYzi

In Pihole I see queries being performed when I manualy force a sync.

How can I solve this issue?

Firefox does not allow me to print downloaded and possibly other files. It does not bring up TWINUI, and maybe this is the reason. Using microsoft explorer, TWINUI appears, and printing works fine for the same files. How do I fix this problem. This is a fairly new problem and I only wish that when software works, it does not need software weenies messing with it!!!

I'm switching permanently from Chrome and this is the first problem I've run into. I had Firefox set to never remember history before, but since it's going to be my primary browser now I need it to remember cookies. Every time I try to change the history setting it pops up with "Firefox must restart" but when it restarts the setting is still set to never remember history and it just pops up again. How can I fix this? Already tried custom setting for history and browser.private.autostart and they didn't work either.

Ideally I'd like firefox to remember cookies but not history, but it's not a major issue if it has to have both.

I tried all the suggestions but nothing seems to work. Only thing I did not try was one preference that is locked so I could not change it. Is this going to be fixed in the next upgrade? if so, when is the upgrade coming? the web page it is having a problem with is "ptd.net". IE and chrome both open it without any delay. Firefox Version 70.0.1 (64-bit)

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to <this URL> because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it? <this URL> has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

The title of my question is a bit hard to understand. Let me try to explain.

My library gives me electronic access to the Oxford English Dictionary (my favorite dictionary, with all those helpful quotes/example sentences!)

What I should get:

1. Go to http://www.vpl.ca/digital-library/oxford-english-dictionary

2. Click the "Access Now" button (link to https://www.vpl.ca/extDB/login.remoteDB?OxfordEnglishDictionary)

3. I'm taken to a page that says "VPL Electronic Resource Authentication", where I enter my library card number and PIN.

4. I enter my card number and PIN, then press the Authenticate button

5. I'm taken to to a page that says "Your login was successful." I then press the "Continue ➡️"

6. I'm taken to https://www.oed.com/ where i can now happily use the dictionary


What I experience:

1. Go to http://www.vpl.ca/digital-library/oxford-english-dictionary

2. Click the "Access Now" button (link to https://www.vpl.ca/extDB/login.remoteDB?OxfordEnglishDictionary)

3. I'm taken to http://www.vpl.ca/digitallibrary

4. If I go to oed.com directly, it shows that I'm not logged in /authenticated.
