After an update earlier this year I began having the cursor freeze when I was typing in any text field such as in Gmail compose.

Even as I type in this field it has occurred. I was using backspace to edit out a phrase. The cursor remained at the left as ~15 characters were removed. Then both the keyboard and cursor commands ceased to be executed. For ~3 minutes the screen remains locked with the cursor separated from the trailing text by those 15 blank spaces. Then all "stored commands" are executed. During the lockup I am able to use touchscreen to open all other applications, but can not close.

I am in 94.0.2 as I use your auto update setting. I used "refresh" without remedy. I even uninstalled Foxfire, closed the laptop, restarted, and performed a fresh install. The only plugins are the one you install and one from google.

I am now using another browser for all my email work! Frankly, it is apt to become my default if I cannot resolve this aggravation.

Looking forward to your suggestions/tips. Let me know if I can supply further information.

Peace/Out

Hey I was just trying to login to my account after I created a new windows and I got this issue The confirmation email we sent to *********@gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account. No longer own that email? Create a new account

Well can you just unlock my account as I know the password and have big data needed there. Also this email is closed by google and I mean closed not forgotten so it won't receive any emails.

Hi read your article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save

I have changed the action for content type "mail to" to my default email app outlook. Despite this when I click on an embedded web page mail to link, the action reverts to the new office "mail" app which I do not want. When I get to the section in your article "User.js file overriding Firefox settings" as the next step in trying to fix the issue, and follow the instruction "Click the Firefox menu - and select Exit." then I am thrown out of the dialogue, it is not logical. Please advise as I don't even know if the user.js is causing the persistence?

Thanks Andrew

Last night my Firefox 94.0.2 was hacked. When running Firefox, it would lock up my desktop. It disabled Norton Security, it disable other installed security software, and it disabled Windows System Restore. The hacker put up a message claiming to be Microsoft Support, with a phone number to call for help. This was a scam. I ran Firefox refresh, and that removed the hacker's program from Firefox, but then I had to do a full repair of my Window's installation. To protect my system, and prevent this from happening again, I added "xpinstall.enabled = false" into about.config. Please let me know if this will prevent a web site from installing a dangerous hack into Firefox, or if there is something else that I need to do. I have used Firefox for years, and have never encountered this problem before. Firefox is my favorite browser, but I am now afraid to use it. Please advise me what to do. Thanks, Jim

Hi,

I have a fresh installation of my Macbook OS, and a fresh Mozilla Firefox installation. I would like to re-import my old passwords and log ins, but it seems that the new version of the browser doesn't have that option unfortunately. I can see only Import from Other Platforms options, but not import from file or similar.

I have .csv file, but no option of how to import in into my browser.

I would appreciate help on this one. Thank you in advance.

Sasha

PS off topic: the "developer" area of Mozilla is quite painful to handle and reach. I'm always pushed/forwarded back over here. Also the sophisticated 2way-auth seems a bit overkill for posting on a forum .

Is there a way to use "search engine shortcut" without query just to go to a website of the appropriate search-engine?

So as, for example, after writing "g" (or "g"+space) in the search bar and pressing Enter, firefox opened the url "https://www.google.com/search?q=" (or something like that).

It used to work this way in older versions of Firefox (before 83), but since then firefox just searches "g" with the default search engine. Or it "eats" the shortcut (after pressing space) and turns it into a "blue/gray search engine label" but it does not allow me to go to the search engine web without writing some query that I need to remove afterwards.

I was using this feature as a sort of bookmark shortcuts to "custom" search engine websites (I'm using tens of them for debugging purposes and often need to fill in some additional parameters to the "text" query - often even to an "empty query").

The closest I got googling was probably "browser.urlbar.update2.emptySearchBehavior" - but it either does not work already, does not do what I'm expecting or I did not come up with the correct value for it.

After the last update to Firefox on my Mac Book Pro running Mac-OS Monterey, I was offered an update to Ad Block Plus. This add-on, AdBlocker Ultimate shows as installed but it won't run at all and shows as disabled and my existing AdBlock Plus quits working. I'm using Adblock Plus on my windows based computers with all synced together with the Mac Book and the Windows computers are OK, but not the Mac Book. Is there any way to get my Mac Book working correctly? In addition the last update to Firefox on the Mac Book opens by offering me "Life in Color" every time it starts up. How long do I have to tell it I'm not interested? Thanks for your help.
