After I open the Firefox browser, a window opens:

We couldn't create the data directory - Microsoft Edge can't read and write to its data directory: C:\ProgramData\McAfee\WebAdvisor\UIHost.exe_pr]S-1-5-21-1684796555-4169006821-2310766321-1005\wa1656781557\EBWebView

Tried to re-intall Edge, does not work, cleared all cookies, etc. Still get this message once I open the Firefox Browser.

Any suggestions how to clear this problem?

Not sure what happened. I thought I clicked on an update and suddenly Firefox refused to open. I had to re-install Firefox and not sure how to get my preset tabs and history back. I could really use your help as I'm not the most computer literate person and also thanks in advance. Right now everything is in pink, not my fav, to differentiate from what I had before. I deleted my original firefox icon on my taskbar as It would not open or give me internet access.

Evening, all.

It's very rare I ask for help on ANY fora, if I'm honest. I can almost always sort out my own issues, especially with browsers. However, this one has stumped me.

I've noticed that, on any website where user interaction requires use of a microphone, the Linux build of Firefox only ever offers "source_default_name" for choice of microphone. Well, OK; I can see this being fine for the vast majority of folks who use a laptop; the built-in microphone WILL be the "default" microphone, no questions.

My question is this; what do those of us running desktop PCs do about microphone selection, hmm? A desktop PC doesn't HAVE a "built-in, default microphone", does it? By their very nature, any microphone you're going to use with a desktop is going to be an externally plugged-in device. I have three of these; a USB microphone.....a wireless headset, and the twin stereo mikes on a Logitech c920 webcam.

Do I get anything resembling a drop-down list to choose what I want to use? Uh-uh. Firefox - apparently! - doesn't "see" any of them. Not individually. All I ever see is "source_default_name".....

Grrrr...!!

C'mon, guys! Frankly, this is about as much use as a chocolate teapot. Linux, to the best of my knowledge - unlike Windoze - doesn't make 'global' device settings, which every application then uses. It's always been far more fine-grained than that, allowing individual device use on a per-app basis. But that only works if the 'app' in question allows those choices to be made.

Any Chromium-based "clone" - and I use several of these, as I package portable versions for the Puppy Linux community - will give a full drop-down list of every available device it can find. Why can't the Linux builds of Firefox do the same?

I shall be interested to see what, if any, replies I get to this question. It's been bugging me for years...!

Mike.

Hello

Is there a way to find previously viewed images somewhere? I was watching an image in the Firefox browser a few days ago and now that I went back to check it again the page had been removed by the user. I assume all images that I´ve viewed has been stored somewhere on my computer? Where can I see these?

The same question goes for webpages. The image was on a webpage that I would like to view again but it was removed along with the image. Can I see whole pages that I´ve previously browsed somewhere?

I know this has been posssible in the past but it was like 10 years ago I last checked.

Thanks!

I have read all of the other threads about why Gmail will not work in Firefox and I have tried the solutions (although I could not find where to adjust SSL settings in firefox and the link does not take me to the original thread)

I just reinstalled my windows OS and firefox because of other issues. But this means both are in the default state. When I try to load Gmail in firefox it just clocks or does nothing. When I do the same in Microsoft's browser it loads up fine. I have security set to "Standard" I removed HTTPS only mode just in case that was this issue. I have the latest Windows 10 OS and the latest to date Firefox (102.0)

All other sites seem to load fine.

On my video gallery page, some of my videos are stand alone and others are a series of two or more videos. When you click on the series, it takes you to the page where all the ones in the series are housed, but then when you click on one of the videos in that series, I receive a prompt from FIREFOX: Receiving prompt on my created web site "FIREFOX CAN'T OPEN THIS PAGE" Open site in new window...

This totally messes up my ease of use for customers and is keeping them from following through. I would like this feature disabled if possible. Any work around for this?

Thank you for any help and consideration! -Carol Ragsdale ([email]@msn.com) www.westmarionbaptistchurch.com

I noticed during a firmware download with the file extension .DAT that Firefox removed the extension. The file was not recognizable during an attempted firmware upgrade afterward. This is a new issue occurring sometime in the past several months, since last firmware update. Firefox preferences are set to download .DAT files. No other settings are listed for that file extension. I verified the issue points toward Firefox by checking the download with another web browser which completed the download with the extension.
