I have tried everything to fix the popups issue I'm having. I have the block pop up windows box checked in privacy and security options and I have no exceptions listed. I have done several full system scans that have turned up no malicious software in my system. I have also tried using a couple other browsers and they are not having any issues with popups. I have also tried using several different popup blockers from the addons section to no avail. Something that may help to solve this is it's always the same 2 popups. I am at my wit's end. I have been using firefox for a very long time and I love everything about it but if I cannot get this issue solved I will simply have to change to a different browser which would be very disappointing. Please help!

I recently copied my Old Firefox profile to another folder and refreshed my Firefox Dev Edition browser. After refreshing, I copied all of the content of my old Firefox profile to the new default profile and then started the browser. Upon starting it, the browser was working with all of my previous add-ons. But whenever I close the browser and open it again, the icons of the add-ons at the overflow menu are not showing though there is space for the add-ons. Whenever I click at the add-ons, the error that 'Access to file was denied' - `The file at moz-extension://b408b31d-945f-43cb-881e-b1f4071942b6/index.html is not readable` shows up. I tried it with creating other profile folders and then copying my old profile data but it still always happens.

Any help?

I'm having a lot of trouble with the URL autocomplete function not working. I have been trying to solve this for a couple days and nothing is working to enable the URL autocomplete. Here are some of the things I have tried - does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much!

-Made sure the browser.urlbar.autoFill item is set to 'true' -Adjusted Firefox History settings to 'Remember History' -Adjusted Firefox Address Bar settings (Browsing History, Bookmarks, and Open Tabs are checked) -Cleared cache and cookies -Reset Firefox several times -Reinstalled Firefox (without deleting profile and Firefox data)

I have attached screenshots of how my 'about:config' looks, as well as the 'Important Modified Preferences,' in case there's an error that someone else can catch.

(I am running Firefox 68.0.2 on macOS Mojave Version 10.14.5)

Look, this is a huge problem because this message isn't just showing up on my Fire Fox browser, it's also on my TOR browser. I'm not seeking to fix TOR here, I'm just saying that it's on there too and TOR uses Fire Fox - this message appears nowhere else on my PC or browsers. My system was just purchased brand new in Feb. This message did not display when I dl either browser. I've NEVER downloaded ANY Avast or anything like it, I use Windows Defender and that's it. I'm not a techie - but I'm like really neurotic over hard drive space - I don't download ANYTHING unless I absolutely HAVE to with the exception of browsers. I only download those from their official websites though. I do play some games, I've only downloaded games from Steam, Origin, and Utomik. I do have all of their clients on my PC. Other than that, there's been NOTHING I've dl. I only included that info because I thought it might help. Can someone PLEASE help with this. I tried to look at the registry, I'm not seeing anything that seems amiss but I need more specifics - I've read the other questions and answers on this - but I don't know HOW to change anything to see if it helps. I already am scared to death to touch the registry.

Firefox version 63.0.1 on Windows PC. This week, Firefox is slow to load all web pages. After pressing enter in the address bar or clicking a link, approximately 3-5 seconds will elapse before any page information is displayed. During this time, the bouncing ball is in motion where the favicon is usually displayed on the tab next to the page title. Then the page will visually load very quickly, while the bouncing ball continues for another 3-5 seconds before indicating the page load is complete.

This happens consistently on all webpages. The same behavior is observed in Firefox safe mode. Chrome loads pages without delay on this computer. This is a relatively new behavior which I've noticed within the past week. I'm on a 100Mb/s connection with very low latency and a fast DNS response (< 5 ms).

If I hit a link in Facebook and it is a YouTube video, Firefox goes unresponsive and I have to open the task manager and close Firefox. This happens even if it opens in a new window. I can't even open YouTube on its own without having this happen, can you tell me why? I do have three links that I have bookmarked that are YouTube videos and they play fine, but nothing else.

Firefox 63.0.3 Windows 7 Home Premium

When I opened Firefox this morning, it stated that there was a new version available so I clicked the box.

The browser closed, it went through the motions, and reopened the browser.

I checked the version and it still showed 63.0.3, with the option to update, so I rebooted the computer, reopened the browser, and it still shows 63.0.3 with the option to update.

I am sure that others have already posted about this but what is the fix?

Last week Adobe Flash stopped actuating/working with Firefox and there is no black box in the address bar or any place else that I see that asks me to activate it. I have it set as Always Activate on the Plug-Ins page but that isn't helping. I checked and have the most recent version. I had to go through several steps to activate it but it does work in Chrome. I run Win 7 and Firefox is my default browser. Please advise how I can get Flash to work again as it is hampering a lot of my activity on the web. Thank you.

The issue seems to be with DRM. Although DRM videos play on other sites like on Amazon Prime Video. I've done everything I could find on the internet as to fix this issue like I've checked and unchcecked play DRM content in the settings and cleared cookies and cache and everything but nothing seems to be fixing the issue. Also, everytime I load Netflix I get a little yellow dialogue box saying installing components please try again. This happens everytime I load Netflix. Now when I click on any video it asks me to install SilverLight, I've installed it already but still it asks me to install it to play the video.

So when I try to visit archive.org or its wayback machine, I get "Secure Connection Failed" Two widgets are offered: a tickbox for reporting issues and a [Try Again] button. Your Help says to click on the [Advanced] button but there isn't one.

Before anybody gives me a lesson in online security, I would ask that you focus on your usability issue and not my personal habits, thanks.

This is not a new phenomenon, neither is the thread. But I have not found in here a real solution. I mean they all suggest to delete all the "places" files from FF profile, restart in Safe mode etc. I have enough of this. I have done it in the past and I do it again and it doesn't solve the problem. That's why I am here with the same issue, actually **UNSOLVED**

I give you an example proving that the problem is idependent of "places":

1) I type 'ishow.gr' in the Address bar 2) I enter the site 3) I go back to the previous page 4) I start typing 'is..." 5) No autocomplete

It's as simple as that. And this did not happen in the past (before Firefox Quantum).
