In Outlook for Office 365 if I click to view an email in a web browser, it opens in Internet Explorer 11 or Microsoft Edge, neither of which I want to use. I haven't found any way of changing the default to Firefox. In the Office file association wizard I ought to be able to associate the file types .mht, .mhtml, .url etc with Firefox but my options seem to be locked down within Windows 10 Home. 'Choose where to get apps' is set to 'anywhere' but I'm forced towards the MS Store where Firefox is not acknowledged as an app. Surely I can solve this without having to switch to Windows 10 Pro? Grateful for all help.

Trying to get the sync to work with this laptop and my iMac, too, not just with my cellphone. But when I click to connect with another device, it only offers a window to put my cellphone number in, which is already synced!! How am I supposed to sync to my other computer, without going round & round in circles???? The image below is the only thing that opens when I click on "Connect another device"...

Please see the screenshot attached. Before the latest update, I was able to have a separate list of passwords for each site. Now I'm seeing "From this website" and then the other website. I only want to see the passwords associated with each site, not cross referenced. Is there any tool or setting to separate them?

I exported my bookmarks from my Win7 laptop (via FF Quantum). Exported it onto my Win7 Desktop, with HTML extension. Then pasted it to Flash drive.

Note that when pasted, the file displayed as a Blue I.E. Explorer icon.

I then switched to my Win10 laptop, and pasted aforesaid HTML file into My-PC Documents. I then clicked Bookmarks / Show-All-Bookmarks / Import-Backup / import-bookmarks-from-html / this-pc / documents

then i clicked on the bookmarks.html file ...it displayed in the textbox. ......but then it stated "no items" in the grey area below where it states "Names Tags Location"

When I am logged into my AOL account and I forward an email, all graphics disappear, all links change to standard text, and the format changes. Therefore, I cannot properly share emails. This has worked for as long as I can remember and started giving me problem within the last 2 weeks. BTW, this works fine in Internet Explorer and up until a few weeks ago worked fine in Firefox. Current version is 71.0 (64-bit). Please find 2 files attached - 1 of the original email an one of the forwarded email. Please advise.

A widget (Ultimate Social Media Icons Plus) no longer displays on my website www.frankentrikes.com in Firefox 71.0 on Mac OS 10.9.5. It works on all other browsers+phones (incl Firefox).

I have already emptied the cache and done the myriad of other things Firefox recommended trying but it has changed nothing.

I noticed that my Facebook feed is also broken in Firefox, but they claim that it is a permanent break and that there is no fix (for firefox 70.0 and up).

I need this particular widget to work. I am running WordPress 4.9.13

Just installed a GeoTrust EV SSL and noticed no green address bar or company name displayed. GeoTrust support says "Unfortunately, Chrome and FireFox has discontinued the EV green bar display with their latest version of browsers. The organization name is only visible by clicking the padlock." Pretty sure the Comodo EV SSL that we had before the GeoTrust EV SSL did show a green bar, but can't remember for sure.

While using Ubuntu 18.04.03 LTS and FF 71 When I go to www.Pluto.tv a free TV site and leave it running for about 40 minutes or more the message " a script on this page may be busy" this always happens both on Ubuntu and another Linux system. this problem does not occur on my Mac OS. the problem when left alone the CPU goes very high on the Linux system preventing any usefull usage of FF until it is closed and reopened.

The message that pops up suggests FF is interuppting something incorrectly. Anyone with a suggestion to stop this problem? Keeping in mind FF plays with no flawas for more than 40 minutes

Long running scripts have been a constance daily occurrence every time I use my desktop computer since seems like forever. This is the latest one: chrome://calendar/content/calendar-base-view.xml:198..... Not sure if they are all calendar scripts because I'm not always given any script info, just a non responding error message sometimes. I asked for help once before and tried what was suggested, as best I could, but I still have the aggravating problem just as often as ever. However, admittedly I'm not all that computer savy and am more of a user than I am a fixer. My browser is up-to-date and I also reloaded a new one recently. Add-ons are also disabled. Any help at all will be appreciated, thanks.

I'm logged into Firefox with a Firefox Account and want to have to log into that account every time I open Firefox after closing it.

When I say "Firefox Account", I mean the one found under "Sync" in Firefox options, or the one managed from accounts.firefox.com.

In Firefox's history settings, I have "Use custom settings for history" checked and only "Clear history when Firefox closes" checked. I have checked "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed."

It seems very strange to me that Firefox would keep me logged into my Firefox Account with this setup.

Hi,

Since the latest release 71 some of my passwords are not showing in the password manager.

They are also not entering in the websites correctly, this is perhaps that when I view the saved logins and show passwords the passwords are displayed as xxxxxxxx

This has happened on 1 pc's running windows 10.

How do I get my passwords back please?
