Hi,

I'm reporting that firefox, firefox ERS and firefox developer edition (all latest version) are not able to load the Web site https://www.klaytn.com/. While the Web site works well with qupzilla and chromium browser (brave). I already tried all the step in the official documentation (fresh empty profile).

Thank you

FF v66 duckduckgo search engine I enter a search and FF sits there using lots of CPU power and gets no results. Copying the URL to Chrome gets immediate results. Switching FF search to Google gets immediate results.

WHY? Is it time to switch default to Chrome AGAIN?

Hi, I have been using Firefox on Windows 7 for years with no issues, and really want to continue with it, now on Windows 10. But I have repeated errors now with slow or unresponsive web pages, crashing tabs, the Yellow 'A webpage is slowing down your browser'. Video playing on various sites is a nightmare with video freezing or bufferring. I have followed the advice on here and elsewhere, including : https://windowsreport.com/firefox-issues-windows-10/ With no success. The Media Pack recommended on here, just comes up as 'Not Compatible with my computer' ALL the problem Videos play perfectly on Edge.

I repeat, I really want to stay with Firefox, but I am sure you can see why I may end up switching.

I am using Firefox Quantum 66.0.2 (64-bit), on Windows 10 Pro v1809

Can anyone please help ?

I didn't see specific information regarding whether or not Legacy Extensions are removed/uninstalled if they're no longer supported. I don't want to replace the extension, I just want confirmation that despite being listed in 'unsupported' the add-on is removed from my computer, as opposed to just being disabled.

I have post this questions a week ago but there is no response of my questions. I re-post it and hope someone could help to resolve the problem. The firefox v.65 crash , usually after 3o mins, when I have the new brought photoshop elements 2019 program running in the background. After crashed I try to restore the tab. However, firefox crash again right after restart and restore the tab. If I keep trying to restore the tab. The firefox has no response and freeze. A error message come out " video driver failed to restart ....... Sometime the computer get into blue screen and die. i find that the problem also happen with Microsoft Edge browser too. I google the possible issue of the crash and get some information regarding the crash. It may be cause by the photoshop element face detection feature use too much memory to run the program or the program has memory leak problem that cause firefox crash.

I did check my computer RAM memory and PC window system files. they did not show any error. I refresh firefox and reinstall my video driver. However, it make no change of the crash situation. The firefox crash and Blue screen die issues only happen if I run my photoshop element and premier 2019 program at the same time. Adobe support said that it was not photoshop element program problem for the firefox crash.

I want to find out what is the root problem of the crash and how to fix it. I also want to know any known issue firefox crash assoicated with photoshop elements program.

Chrome has, and I'm pretty sure FF used to have, the ability to show what folder a bookmark was in when right clicking it from bookmark search results in the bookmarks organizer.

It'd be great to add it back to the right-click menu there and also add it to a right-click menu off bookmark results from searching "* ..." in the awesome bar.

Seems a bit much to me.

Well, the image upload appears to not be working. Here's the text from the Firefox message:

"uBlock Origin has been updated. You must approve new permissions before the updated version will install. Choosing 'Cancel' will maintain your current add-on version.

It requires your permission to:

While attempting to fix my laptop battery I either deleted or changed a setting that is impacting Mozilla Firefox. When I attempt to start Firefox I get the Crash Reporter "Firefox had a problem & crashed" - after many attempts, I can't get it to restart. I don't know what I am going to do if I have lost all my bookmarks & saved passwords. Please help!

Crash ID: bp-2570327b-ee68-47ec-ae96-74ff40190402

This is what I did to try & fix battery not charging, but in Device Manager I also deleted what I thought was an old network adapter, but can't remember exactly what it was I deleted. I also changed a lot of battery settings, but don't think that should impact Firefox?

Please perform below-shown steps to resolve the issue: Step 01. Click on the Start Button Step 02. Type "Device Manager" in the start search box & open the Device Manager Step 03. Look for Batteries and expand it by click on the + symbol on the left Step 04. Right Click on "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" & uninstall Note: This Battery driver will get reinstalled automatically when you restart the Notebook again Step 05. Please Shutdown the Notebook Step 06. Please remove the Battery and unplug the Power Adapter Step 07. Press and Hold the Power Button for full 1 Minute Step 08. Go ahead and put back the Battery and connect the Power Adapter Step 09. Look for "Plugged In Charging" message on the Battery icon

Hi,

Just when life was tripping along nicely and all Yahoo's videos had been prevented from auto-play, along comes the latest version of FF -- Version 66.0 which appears to have thrown AdBlock & AdBlockPlus into turmoil and released their hold on the videos.

Any knowledge about this, or should I be looking elsewhere for the cause?

Best regards,

Ian

Up until 3 days ago I was able to delete individual cookies. I would click on the remove selected cookies in the manage cookies pop up window. Next I would click on save changes button. I would click on remove button in the drop down removing cookies window. Then the drop down window and the manage cookies pop up window would both close and my selected cookies would be deleted.

Now everything is the same until I get to the drop down removing cookies window. I click on the remove button and the drop down removing cookies window closes, but the pop up manage cookies stays open and the cookies I selected to delete are not deleted.

I don't know if it's a bug or what. I have restarted firefox - still doesn't work. I have restarted my Mac - it still doesn't work.

Hopefully someone can help me.

Hiya, I would appreciate help in finding the certificate I have downloaded from the FNMT website in Spain - it is to enable me to have a digital signature on the system in Spain and I have followed all their instructions - they say the certificate has been downloaded correctly. Trouble is, I can't find it! They tell me to open Firefox (it's already open), choose "Menú, Opciones, Avanzado, Certificados, Ver Certificados (Menu, Options, Advanced, Certificates, See Certificates). I cannot find where "Menú" is to start this series of choices - I've looked on Preferences and anywhere else I could to no avail. Could anyone help me, please? Many thanks, Anna
