I use a Wacom Cintiq Companion 2, which is a drawing tablet. In Firefox, this on screen keyboard or writing pad keeps opening whenever I click on a box I can type in. I have a bluetooth keyboard connected, and when I use it, the on screen keyboard goes away, but I want it to stop popping up permanently, I hate it and I never use it. I've gone into the Options setting and turned off 'allow on screen keyboard when necessary' and also went to about:config and set the osk to false and it still pops up.

With a Macbook Pro running Catalina (10.15.1) and Firefox 71.0b5 (or older versions) If FF is open on a second monitor connected via display port (I have 2 external monitors and built-it), when you Secondary click (AKA right Click) the context menu will often appear on the main Mac display rather than the monitor running FF. Also as the screen are different resolution the menu uses a smaller font. I have attached screen shots showing the two monitors. Assume this a FF bug?

LastPass was installed and running until Firefox automatically upgraded to ver. 71 and now it's been disabled. Even though LastPass is a "recommended" extension, when I try to re-install from Mozilla I get the message "an unexpected error occurred during installation" (see attached file). LP users report the same problem on their site but it's clearly a Firefox 71 problem (LP works fine will all my other browsers).

Since yesterday, Firefox will not play sound on youtube videos and some other embedded videos (eg Newsflare). IE and Chrome will play the sound. Have checked the sound system and everything seems OK as music still plays and websites with sound still work. Someone suggested it could be a flash player problem, but have checked Adobe flash and it is the latest version. I really don't know what the problem is. As an aside, my Train Simulator (which is run through Steam) also has no sound and it did 2 days ago!, but my Flight Simulator (also on Steam) has sound! Just can't get my head round it!! Help!!

Why nobody told me about policies.json when I asked this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1190091 ? Everything I asked is possible by creating a policies.json file. Why do you explain this to enterprises while you tell absolutely nothing to parents who wish to protect the children from harmful content on the Internet ? The usage of the file policies.json is exacly when I wanted in my post https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1190091 , including: -Disable Private Browsing -Disable the "disabling" or removal of any installed add-ons -Disable safe-mode -Disable the installation of VPN and Proxy extensions which would allow children to by-pass my DNS filtering, That's just unbelievable. You give the information to the enterprises and you tell absolutely nothing to parents! This is Wrong.

Today I noticed that my custom plugins are no longer working. I decided to try and re-install flash. I removed the plugins from the directory manually then started again. I downloaded the NPAPI version from adobe (pictured). I then extracted the files and copied the plugin (libflashplayer.so) to firefox's plugin path ($MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH, which for me was /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins). I then restarted firefox. However, the shockwave flash plugin is not present in the plugins tab. This is odd as it was a couple of days ago before I redid this. Sites like newgrounds worked perfectly. Back when flash was working, I noticed on some sites that used html5, it would instead try to use flash. For a whille, the openh264 was stuck on "will be installed shortly." Now when I go to those sites, it will show the thumbnail, but not play. Youtube videos still work, however. In fact, it's really the only video site that still works. Was there a dramatic change in the past couple of days or something? I didn't even update firefox myself, this happened seemingly out of nowhere. I'll post my about:support data in the hopes that it might help? https://pastebin.com/6iHkwwjz I would post here, but it said it was too long... :/ According to this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-flash-plugin-view-videos-animations-games in theory, it should still work. However, despite installing flash and restarting firefox... no shockwave flash plugin is present in about:plugins

Using Options>Colors>I changed the background to "Black" and left the font "White", which was the default. I wanted ONLY the BLANK homepage black. I have a dark theme made by MaDonna. Immediately something altered, FF blinked (so to speak) and next ALL pages are a black background, including ALL webpages. Using FF instructions, I got back to a white blank homepage, but all the webpages have remained black. I've tried every combination (shown on your instruction page) to get back to a "white" background on the webpages. The "Always," "Never," only on ?? themes, clearing cache, returning to defaults, & I can still change the BLANK HOMEPAGE to either black or white, but nothing changes the webpages back to their normal views - white backgrounds. The only thing I haven't done is remove all cookies, because I truly do not want to do that.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.

Any advise?

I started using duckduckgo about 7 days ago. After 5 days I wanted it to start new selections in a new tab so set that up; after that all actions seemed to be very slow. I saw a option to Refresh Ffx. Firefox refresh placed a folder [ old ffx data ] on my desktop. I found instructions to get it back from here dated 12/'17 where it had also removed passwds, etc. My passwds, etc were basically intact but addblocker etc. were gone . I tried that instruction but part of it kept leading me to FileExplorer C: which seemed very strange to me. I tried the instructions several times but it always lead to C: so I finally figured these computers are smarter than I so I tried it ; so all that old FFx data got dumped onto C: . Someday I'll try to get that off there but I'd still like to pursue getting the data back live. So here's the instruction text I followed; I put ** where it lead me to C: [ I figure there have been changes in the last 2 yr that supersede this instruction. Or how do I get inside the new profile folder ?? On the desktop you should see a folder called 'Old Firefox Data' open it and copy all the data by highlighting and selecting everything in that folder, then right click and select copy. Now open FIrefox. Head on over to about:profiles by typing it in your URL bar. Click on the Open Folder button under the Local Directory**, not root. Then right click** when inside the new profile folder and select paste. Then restart Firefox. You should now have all your previous bookmarks, and data back.
