I can't find a tab in settings/options which will allow the page to reload/refresh. I am running Windows 7. Any ideas?

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

Version 76 has serious problems in Mac Mojave and Catalina. I'm thinking of moving to another browser if the problems aren't fixed in a few weeks. In Mac Mojave, the UI sometimes blinks and sometimes becomes black. I had to restart the app but it happened quite frequently. After updating to Catalina, all shortcuts are unusable, most right click menus are blank and even the menu bar is blank. When hovering the mouse over the menu bar, nothing displays, just blank menus. Sometimes, the app starts up with default UI although I customised it a bit. In those cases, I had to close the tab or even restart the app.

I'm getting disappointed and perhaps I'll move to another browser soon.

cannot log in to my Bank of Montreal online banking!!!

I've used Firefox for years, and for years I daily do my online banking.

Now all of a sudden, without any warning I cannot log into my bank account. I've tried clearing history, etc. I've tried the about:config change...

I can log in fine with Microsoft Edge.

My wife uses Firefox and she can log into the bank. I suspect that is because Firefox has not updated on her computer.

This is maddening, to put it mildly.

Firefox has been acting funny under Windows 10 lately so, I recently saved my bookmarks and logins to files (in anticipation that I may have to uninstall and reinstall firefox.) I read the article that explains that if "import from file" does not appear on the "logins & passwords" "more" menu (three dots) then, it means I have to go to about:config in the address bar and turn the feature back on. I went to about:config only to discover that I do not know the name of the preference that I want to toggle.

Does anyone know the name of that preference?

I do maintain several sites. Yesterday I noticed an unknown icon on my site www.magoster.nl www.magoster.nl . It was an icon showing a "wheelchair". It can only been seen a) on my desktop and b) with Firefox. Chrome and Edge do not show it. On my laptop Firefox does not show it. All Apple devices do not show it. So, it is only to be seen on my desktop + Firefox. I scanned site and desktop several times on virusses (McAfee): nothing found.

This wheelchair-icon opens a window whch gives possibilities to alter accessibility of the site. It claims to do that for disabled people. There is a link to a site: https://accessibe.com.

My site www.magoster.nl is a Wordpress-site. All plugins are up to date. All systemsoftware on the desktop too. FF latest version. But I can hardly believe that it is something on the site.

Is anyone familiar with this icon and https://accessibe.com? How did I get this icon and - more important - how do I get rid of it. Thanks for any glues!

I am still using FF 58 because it allows me to delete recent history and cookies. For some reason, often when I reboot the computer. FF switches me to V72. and I have to go thru hell to get 58 back up and running. I love to keep my history for sites I have visited, and v58 allows me to delete everything for the day, 4 hours, 2 hours or one hour.

72 does not appear to give me that option. How can I delete only recent history and cookies, and keep the rest?

I have 3 email addresses, one of which is a gmail address. The other two get checked in the Firefox Monitor, but when I click verify in the gmail acount email, I get this error: This email address is not subscribed to Firefox Monitor. What does this mean? The other two addresses have been checked and the breaches for them have been resolved. For some reason, I can't get the gmail address verified to see if it has been breached. Any clues as to why this is so?

Hi there,

So I manage 2 x FB accounts, mine & Mum's (only cos she's not too savvy). My FB loads fine, apps work, games, vids etc. Mum's on the other hand only has a blank screen when I log in. Nothing on her news feed. She can access the apps/games via links to her email address, and once you've opened one app via an email link you can pretty much access the other apps/games, but not go to their actual page (for bonus points etc), This was working perfectly until this morning.

Hate to say this, but it works in Chrome

Hi, just exited Firefox my usual way - Clicking Exit. Usual message pops up - Do you want to close 2 windows with xx tabs. Firefox closes. As always.

When I am opening Firefox again only 1 window opens! The less important one! The other window actually had all my important tabs.

How can I get my window back?

This has not happened for many many years.
