Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I've got a problem. On both my towers I have the Stop Button (and the Reload Button too) installed because I hate that little dual purpose thing that looks like a worm in an apple (small a apple) and can't be moved out of the URL bar to the bar I want it in. The installation on the tower (Windows 10 and updated today Firefox whatever that is) is working perfectly. On the machine running XP, with Firefox ESR 52.9.0, both buttons have died. I have removed and reinstalled. Not a flicker of life. AVG has been intermittently badgering me and offering to remove them, but I always tell it where to go (even though it won't) and close the warning. The people at AVG don't seem to understand that a lot of people outside AVG don't accept their prog's fatwa on certain extensions. What I'm wondering is, is it AVG being sneaky, or is there a reason why two extensions working happily for several months should go legs up? AVG warns me on the 10 machine too, btw. But the buttons still work. Before I made the Final Upgrade to ESR 52.9.0, I had real Mozilla buttons, but these ones by kiheru are the only replacements I can find. PS for software reasons I need both XP and 10.

in one of the recent previous versions it was possible to print the webpage e.g. to pdf. when there was a lot of other info/characters on the preview, you could choose to simplify the page and a lot of text over text was gone, now it that not possible anymore; print web pages is gobbled up to that the basic web text is not readable anymore. Would it be possible to get this 'simplify page' back on the new print window? I have not a screenshot with that option to show, sorry for that. Thank you in advance. Theo

I'm using Firefox 86.0 (x64) on Windows 10. When I click on the URL in the email, the address bar may start empty. It may be displayed correctly. I changed the option "Home page and new window" from Firefox home (default) to a blank page, and it improved. After that, even if I returned to the default, it did not reproduce. Please let me know. Is this the correct specification?

Our barcodes will not show up in firefox but are fine in every other browser. Specifically, it is the code39b font. Is there any way around this in firefox? Allowing websites to choose their own fonts is enabled, and changing/disabling the sandbox also did not help. I have not found any helpful add-ons either. Please share if you have any ideas, thank you!

Excuse my long winded explanation but I have a problem with an Acer Nitro Gaming Laptop that I bought 6 months ago when my HP laptop had a hard drive failure. I purchased the new Acer rather than have my HP repaired. After a month of frustration I sent my old HP for repair and have been waiting for a fix for the Acer that appears to have a software issue not a hardware problem. The issue that I'm having is that no matter which browser I'm using it frequently crashes while web browsing. Depending on which browser I'm using I will get the message Oh dear we encountered a problem, or Oh Snap your page crashed or status_access_violation.

The laptop has done this since fresh out of the box no matter what browser that I use and so far I've tried Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Brave. They all crash which is downright frightening if you are in the midst of doing an online purchase or an online banking transaction. I prefer to use the Firefox browser and have used it for several years.

What I find most interesting is that if I use the old original Internet Explorer that comes in the Windows 10 accessories the laptop is stable and works flawlessly without issues. The main problem is that most web sites no longer support the old explorer and Windows in constantly wanting to update the browser to Edge. Since it works perfectly with the Internet Explorer it leads me to assume that I have a software, coding bug that is unique to the Acer laptop.

In the interim I have a $1,000 doorstop that is of no use to me until a solution is found to this problem. So far I have tried virtually every suggestion out there from updating to the latest versions of the software, trying different browsers and even tried renaming the executable files that initiate the browsers. I have also twice done a full factory reset and started over, none have worked. If anyone out there has a suggestion or solution to this my dilemma please contact me at fhmechanic@gmail.com Thanks!

I want to disable checking for updates, but the setting to do so has been removed. After updating fairly recently, I noticed that the setting located in:

about:preferences#general

Was changed to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" WITHOUT my permission. As a result of this change, I get nagged while I am working ALL THE TIME. Like, several times a day. Not just when the browser first starts, but while I am working. I am getting sick of it! It's become spam at this point, drawing my eyes away from work. and if you think spamming people will make them do it, think again.

In Windows 10 I got so fed up with the automatic updates disrupting work that I outright destroyed my computer's ability to EVER get a system update. If the nuclear option is available for Firefox I am prepared to do so if only to make it shut up already.

So anyway, please tell me, how do I make it stop nagging me about updates? and while I am at it, how do I kill the notification system entirely? because I never want any type of notification ever disrupting me while I am working.

Obviously Mozilla understands this sentiment, since the default behavior now is to hide notifications as described here:

https://blog.mozilla.org/firefox/block-notification-requests/

So why be so in-your-face about updates?

NOTE: I am not against updates in general, but back in the 90's when software updates was optional I updated things far more often because I enjoyed having the ability to do research on an update before accepting it. This personal policy has resulted in me avoiding lots of bad updates that damaged other people's computers, but software that updates without permission like Chrome, for example, would constantly introduce bugs or change behavior without my permission in such a way that makes it largely unusable to me. On my chromebook computer I was able to temporarily block chromebook updates by manually setting the version number to a maximum value but the moment google found a way around that an update was pushed that screwed up touch screen functionality, so, realistically speaking, the heavy handed approach to updates is ultimately what causes me to stop updates. Ironically. While I understand a desire for security, these big companies just don't seem to realize that my computer is my own personal property so they can't treat it like it was under the authority of their IT department. I just want control over what my computer is doing. If and when I update it will be because I am ready to, not because someone else decided to force it on me.
