Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

I am using Firefox 87 with windows 10. Autofill passwords has always worked, suddenly it no long fills in the password. I have all the correct checks for autofill logon and autofill password, and for FF to ass for both of them on a new site. the information is properly listed in the program list.

I have tried everything i could think of , went to about;config made sure the settings were correct, asked help support page and forums. tried everything tried tried everything what was suggested to solve issue, BUT autofill password still does not work, i have thought of using another program manager, but not sure if that is a good idea thank you very much I sure could use some help with this............ Only other thing i can think is resetting FF but still not sure that would work either. Allen Millner allen-tina@comcast.net

I have two problems with my browser. 1) On Windows 10 I get the push notifications if the browser not in full-screen mode but if you do full-screen you get no push notifications so that leads me to my other problem, I wanted to put the firefox app in the priority list for Windows 10 notifications but the Firefox symbol will not show up on their list of apps, why not?

Why did Firefox developers simply disable "Backspace" instead of making it a selection in "Settings"? I understand why some users can't stay "focused" and lose typed data, but the rest of us really like the backspace function to go back a page.

Yes you can re-enable it (& I did so) using "About:Config" but that's akin to REGEDIT and not for the faint of heart...

Am I going to have to make this edit every time FF Updates? and on each of my PCs?

Hi So my problem started a few days ago i don't remember exactly when. The graphs on the binance exchange site have stopped updating for me on Firefox. I mean when i load the page with the graph in it the graph is static and i have to keep refreshing the entire page to see changes in the graph. I should mention that the graphs on a different site that i use work fine and display the prices in real time.

I also had microsoft edge and the same problem happens there too but today i installed chrome and the problem in NOT present there. So the site and graphs update and work properly in chrome but not in Firefox or edge. I prefer to use Firefox for everything!

-I tried Firefox safe mode and the problem is still there. -I also made a new Firefox profile and the problem is still there. -Finally i even refreshed Firefox but even that didnt fix the problem. I should mention that i have Firefox sync enabled so after i refreshed Firefox it automatically installed back all my addons (and other settings?) so even though it is refreshed it looks and behaves exactly like before i don't know if that "cancels" the effects of the refresh.

I am running win10 and my antivirus is kaspersky. I had Kaspesky on "pause protection" while i was troubleshooting but that didnt help either. I hope i managed to explain everything because i find it hard to express my self in English. If you need me to clarify anything let me know. I hope someone can help me with this because I don't know what else to try.

Thanks in advance Kiri

In the past I have frequently used "Take A Screenshot" by positioning the cursor at the 3 dots (vertical ellipsis) near the end of the address bar input area and selecting the now missing function. Presently I have upgraded to Firefox version 88 on windows 10 and can not find anyplace to turn this function back on in the configuration section. SOLUTIONS ANYONE, I NEED THIS BACK?

Note: I want to restore the function under the ellipsis and do not desire to use Ctrl-Shift-S.

Is there an option to get the old behavior back? When I'm browsing for reference images and I want to just have an image or video in a window I could just right click and use view image/video. Now it's open in a new tab.

You essentially just added one useless click to the whole thing which is me having to close the tab the image came from.

If you answer with, "You can just use copy image link and paste it in the same tab." You just turned what was right click then left click into right click, left click, move mouse over, click to highlight the address, ctrl+v

When I have to do this to hundreds of images every day, every single little click counts.

So, can I restore the old and better functionally? And really, when you do these changes, give an option to keep the old method or keep both.... Gesh...

I am finding many websites do not work properly with Firefox and I am forced to use Chrome. I had contacted support for each website with which I had problems and they all told me to try Chrome. In every instance Chrome worked but Firefox did not.

A few examples of problems: I am unable to log-in on one site, I cannot put any item I want to purchase into the shopping cart of 2 other sites, I can't place a for sale ad in my local newspaper and today I was told I can no longer use Firefox for my webmail account. If I don't use Chrome I can't load new messages or compose messages. Please help.

Thank you!

Hello,

Is there a way to create popup exception list configuration file, that allows popups for certain webpages? I want to deploy such a file to our organizations 800 PCs.... I tried to create autoconfig.js file and put it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref location : //Popup Settings Components.utils.import("resource://gre/modules/Services.jsm"); Components.utils.import("resource://gre/modules/NetUtil.jsm"); Services.perms.add(NetUtil.newURI("https://websitehere.com"), "popup", Services.perms.ALLOW_ACTION);

I tried with such a configuration: //Popup Settings Components.utils.import("resource://gre/modules/Services.jsm"); var uri = Services.io.newURI("https://websitehere.com", null, null); Services.perms.add(uri, "popup", 1);

But nothing works... Is there a way to do this?

I understand that there's this help page, but a lot of times site developers right click and hotkeys disabled for security reasons and this renders me unable to take a screenshot of a website.

I've also tried to add "Take a Screenshot" button from "Customize Toolbar" option to my toolbar, but most of the time it is disabled, even on support.mozilla.org page. To enable it, I need to remove it and re-adding it again with "Customize Toolbar" option.

Is there any way to re-enable "Take a Screenshot" option in 3-Dot menu? If not, is there any sane way to keep "Take a Screenshot" enabled for the rest of my Firefox session without me needing to remove and re-add it again everytime I need to take a screenshot?

In Firefox 90.0a1 (tried on the Nightly version), Mozilla removed the three dots and the ‘add to Pocket’ button from the address bar. I am not sure if this is the right place to ask, but why did Mozilla do that? I liked them a lot! I have added both the Pocket button, and the screenshot button back, but since they are now placed in the toolbar, the whole UI looks more cluttered.

I am unable to use Pandora. This started within the past week or so. The website loads, looks normal, but the play button and station switch buttons do not work, no music plays. However, if I log out and log back in, it does work fully, until I either refresh the page or close the browser window. Then, when the page loads, the play/station buttons no longer work. I have to log out and then log back in again to restore functionality.

I verified Pandora works fine on Chrome, IE, and Edge on this PC and other PC's in my house.

Firefox version 88 on Windows 10, I have restarted the PC, cleared cookies, clicked "forget about this website" under history, I have turned 'enhanced traffic protection" off for the site, I have added pandora.com as an allowed exception for cookies.

The only change I can remember making in the past few weeks is removing Flash from my PC.

Attached is the error log. I put a green line where after the website finished loaded, I hit the play button. The issue must before before that green line button, because it should autoplay. It does after I clear the cookies and log in. I don't know anything about how to decipher this information, so any help is greatly appreciated!
