Why does Firefox STARTUP with a BLANK tab and NOT MY HOMEPAGE? It only started doing this after the last update. When I launch the Firefox from Win10 Pro.

Since the last update of Firefox, it will not open up (upon launching) with my Homepage displayed. Only a blank tab and then I have to click on the little "home" icon for my home page to be shown. I have tried repeatedly changing home screens in the options settings, still no help. Somewhere there must be a "Firefox Startup" ini or something.

Thanks for any help on this.

Using v. 67.0 on Win 7 no matter what page I am viewing, if I leave to look at a different page, then come back, the page reloads. It is especially annoying when clicking on a link in an email. Note I do not have to sign back in. I just have to wait for the page to reload. It only recently began doing this. How do I fix it ?

I just started to use Firefox and am having a problem seeing the video for Fox and CNN News. Youtube works great, best picture I've seen. The links work good on Chrome, but, when I play them on Firefox the video seems to have a black box across the screen. I can see a very small top and bottom section, that's all. I have the lastest Firefox, Flash and Shockwave. I have disabled the Adblocker and the Ublock with no change. I've searched the forums and cannot find an answer, or I'm subject blind.

Any ideas

Hi, Please see pictures.

As per everytime I update Firefox I end up spending hours trying to sort issues out and ending up in a foul mood. Everything was fine in 65, I update to 67 and I'm not sure whether I want to scream or cry more.

Issue 1. I lost Adblock plus, I managed to reinstall and lost all my settings that I can't recover. Years of settings gone. All other apps as far as I can tell are still installed so why did adblock get deleted with all the settings?

Issue 2 I can't see addons on the addons page. Same goes for themes and plugins. I've done safe mode where I can see them. I updated them in safe mode. But still can't see them. They were fine in ver 65.

Any ideas? Thanks

So, for the past couple of weeks, after every 3-4 days, I go to open Firefox, and all my add-ons and settings keep getting reset.

It's a weird thing. I have my add-ons, my customized settings, and everything is working fine. But after a couple of days, I open up firefox and it's like I'm starting from 0.

I mean, my history, bookmarks, passwords, all remain intact.

But everything else is gone. All my extensions open up a tab saying "now installed!" or something along those lines - plus a tab from Mozilla, today about the privacy notice.

My homepage, search and download settings are back to the defaults.

I have tried to refresh my browser, reinstalled my extensions, but still the same issue.

Help?

Since I posted this query, I kept trying things and went to the mouse properties and changed the speed of the double click. This seems to have fixed the problem. I am going to try and close down the question.

I accidentally moved to firefox 67 (64 bit) from (x86). Now, when I left click, the mouse frequently double clicks. Not all the time, but most of the time. For example, if I click on a drop down, it drops and then immediately closes. If I click on the zoom, it will skip one level and go up or down two levels.

I only have one ad-on, AdBlocker, and I disabled it to see what would happen , but it had no effect on the double click.

I am trying to open a link to a .m (MATLAB) file directly in the Firefox browser (from a local site).

On windows this works fine and when the link is followed a new tab is created with the .m file converted to a HTML page.

On Ubuntu however it seems like Firefox is iterpreting the file as Objective-C source code and when I am trying to use Firefox to open the file (preferences -> applications -> Objective-C source code -> use Firefox) it keeps on repeatedly opening new emtpy tabs. I can set it so that the file is opening in e.g. gedit, but I would like to have the same behavior as on Windows i.e. a new tab with the file converted to HTML format. Is this possible? Is there a Firefox extension that I am missing? I read that you should use preview in firefox, but I don't seem to have that option (I have included a screen)

I am using Firefox Version 65.0 (64-bit)

In Mozilla Firefox for Linux (Mint) there is no cursor transition when hovering over the edges of the Google Sheet cells range selection, eg in order to move it to other location. It makes this simple process very "arbitrary" and difficult, so I need to use copy paste instead.

Off course this is happening only in FFX, other browser show default behaviors - transitioning cursor to palm handle for easy cell range selection pick up and manipulation. Thus I find this being a FFX specific bug, and I wonder if anyone has the similar experience and if there is a solution?

When I hit paywalls, I "trust" site with ghostery. Still hit paywall. Can't find anything in Kaspersky that will let me turn off anything. Meanwhile there is no red stop sign ad block in the upper right corner of FF. This is 2 hours of my life i will never get back and I still cannot get past paywall. Is the little red stop sign (which I cannot find in firefox - using most recent version) hidden somewhere other than in the drop down menu on the upper left hand side?? It's not in the drop down menu.

I am ready to kill everything and start fresh with Tor. That's drastic but I have been directed in circles for too much time. Life is short and I am no longer entertained with this mess.
