When I open an iTunes App Store link, Firefox wants to automatically open iTunes. In Options>Applications, I found content types itms and itmss, which cause this behavior. I can change them to "Always ask", but when I do, I get a the pop-up every time I open link asking me to pick between "iTunes" or "Choose an Application." To prevent future pop-ups, I can check "Remember my choice for itmss links" but only after selecting iTunes or another application. There should be a third option there for "Do Nothing." Is there some way to tell Firefox to completely ignore itms/itmss content?

Hi there,

I work for a small UK based charity and we use our website to take orders for our programmes, we deliver DARE programmes in the UK.

Our website is https://lifeskills-education.co.uk.

We use WordPress as our CMS and use Formidable Forms to create forms for people to place orders; these forms work fine in Chrome and Edge, but will not display in Firefox. I have tried everything, disabling third party scripts, all plugins, themes and more, but Firefox refuses to show them. It sees the HTML, but when inspected the HTML is greyed out. It is not greyed out on Chrome.

https://lifeskills-education.co.uk/resources/the-dare-primary-programme/ is the page where an order form should show on the left above the fold. It is titled Place an Order.

There is nothing I can find anywhere that can help me with this issue, Google has come up blank and I am not a web developer so don't have the tech chops to track this down.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Stuart

I cannot login to gmail since upgrading to windows 10, i can login to my gmail account from chrome and internet explorer but not firefox. I am running the latest version 40.x.x. I have tried deleting history, deleting cookies, deleting cookies-sqlite file incase it was corrupt, I have installed a fresh version of firefox after a complete uninstall and deleting all the appdata folders, my privacy setting are set to allow cookies and third party cookies and to keep them for ever. It is really frustrating now, it just keeps refreshing the screen and staying on the password entry screen. I really want to continue using firefox but i think i am going to have to go back to chrome if i can't even use gmail

Seriously. This is downright stupid. I attempted to download Firefox for the first time on this laptop and got a "This file is corrupt" error before the downloading portion was even done. I cancelled the download and retried and it went all the way though although it froze temporarily around the 66% mark and then finished. But after that I got "couldn't load XPCOM" so I did I completely uninstalled Firefox and then attempted to reinstall and again at the 66% mark at downloading I got "Couldn't load XPCOM"...the heck is going on with this oversized hunk of junk?

For a while now I have been getting the above message when I try to open Mozilla Firefox. I have reinstalled Firefox and deleted Malwarebytes but the message persists. Below the tabs, it provides a long list of ways to "restore browser" purportedly detected during their last scan, which I have not attempted to correct. MF downloaded fine, but I cannot get to see the browser. Please provide a solution as simple as possible. This looks like malware to me.

Hello,

Maybe a month ago my online banking (https://ib.swedbank.lt/private/d2d/start) links stopped working with Firefox 52. I can login, but when I press any link nothing happens. Then if I try to reload the page I get this confirmation message "To display this page, Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier." After I press Resend button, previously pressed link opens. OS on this PC is XP.

I have also tested this issue on another computer with Win7 and Firefox 56 and it also had this problem. But after the last upgrade on this version it works fine again.

Thanks in advance
