Hi,

I only want to mention that Firefox hangs on download, if I want to download VMWare Player for Windows from https://my.vmware.com/de/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_workstation_player/15_0|PLAYER-1555|product_downloads

After clicking the button for the download destination nothing happens and reacts anymore and I have to kill Firefox. The dialog for choosing the download destination won't be opened. (Winodws 8.1 Home 64bit)

IE 11 works well.

Over the years I've watched the bbc iplayer through a vpn. Recently the bbc has been rejecting me as not being in the UK. This has not been a problem with IE 11. Both browsers use the same vpn settings. (I am using the Nord vpn) I have had much communication with Nord support but have not been able to solve this problem. It is time to get the Firefox experts in on the problem. So, how do I set up FirefoX so that I can resume watching the iplayer?

Everything has vanished. I've tried all suggested fixes. I even deleted Firefox and installed again. I continue to get the same error msg..."the bookmarks and history system will not functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I'm using Webroot and have not made any changes ...period. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Scott

Okay, so i visit one of the German language news sites that i visit very frequently, but today i get this: https://www.bild.de/wa/ll/bild-de/privater-modus-unangemeldet-54578900.bild.html Even if i do what they suggest, open a new browser window so that it is no longer in private browsing modes, or if i untick that privacy protection shield at the very left end of the search bar - the dam site does not change to give me the actual contents. I also tried via login to the site, login works - but site still tells me i am in private browsing - but i am NOT. So, what can be done about this (oh, i also added this sites URL into the exceptions list - but, in the window for Exceptions for enhanced tracking protection i can not add anything, why not?? (it just says You’ve turned off protections on these websites) no sites listed no possibility to enter a site).

That is a lot of unwanted hassles i need to resolve this .a.s.a.p. Thanks for help Oh, no plugins that block ads either, i only see the H264 video codec, Flash and a "Widevine Content Decryption module from Google as active plugins.

Adblock Plus opens new window each time I start and won't keep settings

Somehow I got Adblock Plus and it's been nothing but trouble. First I noticed ads that weren't there before, then it kept opening new windows about just downloading ABP and it won't keep my settings. Last week I wrote an email asking for help and didn't get a reply. This ABP Plus is a MESS.

1. It won't keep my settings.

2. Right now I have no fewer than 5 "Installation" tabs in my browser. How do I make them STOP? It started after this last time that I updated your program.

3. Right now I don't even know if it's working right. How can I go back to the last version that didn't foul up?

Today, I went to Firefox website and was going to download to plain old Adblock but that page said it was not monitored. see attachment. So I went to the Mozilla website. see attachment. When I clicked on "Recommended extensions may also be found while browsing with FF...." it took me to a page that didn't have anything about AdBlock. Over an hour later, I ended up right back where I started from. I'm exhausted and I give up trying to follow links that take me back again and trying to describe how it's taking me round in circles. How do I go back to the old AdBlock? It worked well for me, didn't make me reset every time I open my browser and actually blocked ads. Firefox, Windows 8.1 latest versions. Please reply in simple English I am a senior and techy words just make my head swim. If someone replies and I don't reply back, it may be that I can't get on the internet, the wifi here is lousy at best and most of the time, not at all. I try to get on the internet several times a day, if someone replies I will reply as soon as I can. Don't give up on me. Thanks, Bernadine

Firefox randomly access $MFT (Master File Table) of other HDDs

Hi,

I have couple of hard drives on Windows 8.1 and while I'm using Firefox; "Windows Explorer.exe" randomly access to $MFT (Master File Table) of other internal or external harddrives, which I don't use at that moment.

I used Resource Monitor and SysInternals to see what happens but I only figured out Firefox triggers an access to $MFT of other hard drives.

As I figured out, sometimes when I open a new tab, or, sometimes after reading a long article on a website and when I open a Youtube tab, or, sometimes after some reading when I download an image; Firefox Browser triggers Windows Explorer.exe and it access to $MFT (Master File Table) of other drives. And they make noise, that's why I'm asking.

I checked if it happens with other browsers or programs; I found that this happens with Firefox or Chrome browser. But not while using Microsoft Edge browser or any other programs.

Windows Search Indexing turned off, PageFile turned off. There is not any programs on other drives. There is no background application and no antivirus. There is no Firefox related files (bookmarks etc) in other drives.

Can you please suggest me anything to find what causes/triggers that or suggest me to how to use properly SysInternals or anything else to see why Chrome and Firefox wants to reach other hard drives? (Such as how to setup a filter in Process Monitor / SysInternals or anything else... )

Thanks for any help.

New Keyboard Input Problems

Sorry that I don't know the version when this started, but within the last couple of months I have noticed that keyboard inputs are being processed incorrectly in many places.

The CMail web interface is one example. At the moment, in almost every GMail that I compose, I find "pieces" of things that I type in the wrong place. For example, I'll see a character on the end of a word somewhere in the message and notice that the same character is missing from a word later in the paragraph.

I also use some keyboard macros, and this new behavior has essentially stopped the use of these macros in FF.

One good example is that, for years, I have used a macro to dial voice calls using Google Voice. When google force the change to the new (green) version of Google Voice about six months ago, I had to spend several hours testing timing "delays" to get the macro to work in the new interface.

Those changes worked until the keyboard input problems started sometime in the last couple of months and the dialing macro not only became unusable, editing the timing delays didn't help.

If I fire up Chrome and use the same macro that fails in FF in Chrome, the macro works flawlessly in Chrome.
