So in FF68.0 Mozilla devs have for some reason screwed such a basic thing as drag and drop from the browser into Windows file explorer. The best fix I was able to find to restore drag and drop proper functionality is to go into "about:config" page, find "browser.launcherProcess.enabled" setting and switch it to "false". The problem is, the setting in question just keeps resetting to "true" on its own after each and every browser update, so I had to manually change it back to "false" after FF69 update, FF70 update, FF71 update and FF72 update, basically 4 additional times already if not even more (I don't quite remember about XX.0.1 types of updates). It's frankly getting ridiculous and extremely annoying by that point. Is there a way to stop FF from screwing my "about:config" settings without my consent?

I searched for a fix, it says (from 2016) if you are using 64 bit firefox you must switch to 32, beause the flashplayer for 64 bit firefox doesn't support Context3D. But that is completely irrelevant because I am using a 32bit firefox and getting the error. from what I've searched it's not flashplayer causing it. and I have just installed the newest flashplayer.

I have various login usernames and passwords for various websites. Firefox (version 72.0.1) seems to remember the usernames and passwords ok, so I must have some settings right. But it won't log into those websites automatically when I click on a bookmark. The screen opens with the fields filled in, but I have to click through each login screen until I eventually reach the web site's home page. Under internet explorer the website home page would just open as soon as I clicked the bookmark link in my favorites When I go to about:config and search signon, then signon.rememberSignons is set to "true" signon.autofillForms is also set to "true"

I have followed your instructions on getting Windows Firewall to allow Firefox and Thunderbird access to the internet, but after going to Control Panel, etc, to Add a program, I select Firefox and Thunderbird, click OK, then click on Firefox or Thunderbird and I get the Win Firewall message asking to allow or not allow, I click "Allow" then the message keeps appearing asking the same. I go to Control panel, etc, Add Program AGAIN, and both programs are not in the list. No matter how many times I select and allow the programs in the Add Program window, as soon as I click OK, they disappear from the list.

How to turn off *distracting* display of trackers blocked in bottom right of web pages for Firefox 69?

I appreciate that Firefox is now blocking third party trackers. But I can't stand having a distracting purple display of trackers blocked in every web page. That is unacceptable to me and I want a way to turn off that distracting display on *every* web page.

I find it ironic that distracting ads are being removed (good!) but Firefox developers thought it was a smart idea to *add* its own distracting information on web pages (sheesh -- at least could we have the option to put that tracker summary in the menu bar? -- I would ideally prefer being able to abolish it from even being seen there).

I am a software developer who doesn't care for web page pollution or distraction from the real content, and a tracker blocking summary in my face on every page is definitely pollution.

I'm going back to Chrome because of this one issue (the ad blocker I use only puts its summary count in the menu bar).

Firefox really goofed by adding its own "ad" on *every* web page for its new feature. Now I need a blocker for those ads!

I used to be able to type the first few letters of an address, either from my bookmarks, such as acrostics.org, or another URL, such as cnn,com, and the address would appear in the address bar. Now I have to drop down the menu and select the correct one. How can I go back to the way Firefox used to work?

Thanks.

2) I just wish to "lock" my Firefox page size to 120% (not permanently forever, of course) because at present I have to change it in the beginning of every web-session by opening the Firefox menu at right upper hand corner and choosing 120% in the "page size" option.

I have upgraded to 70.0 and now there is a 6 second delay on loading first site. I have firefox starting in private mode and without a home page. this loads at its usual speed. However, when I click on a bookmark the system hangs for 6 seconds before the site is presented. Subsequent sites load rapidly as usual. I have tested with other browsers and sites and the problem is specific to Firefox and not specific to the site being load. Once loaded, if I open an additional Firefox window this loads sites rapidly. I have been using Firefox for many years and the problem has only occurred since I upgraded to 70.0.

Can anyone help please.

I had to reinstall win 7 on a new HD. Before I removed the old HD I copied my entire firefox profile. I then re-named it to my 'new' firefox profile - in hopes that everything would transfer. My bookmarks are there, but my passwords are not. Although the files key4.db and logins.json are both present in the new profile - they do not contain my old passwords. file size is also the same - very odd. I have access to all data on my old HD - how do I recover/transfer all my old passwords - there are >150 of them - I'm not going to type them all in

thanks so much

Hi, On Firefox 71, when addons are enabled/disabled, I experience blurry instead of crisp graphics on Google Maps. Initially when the page loads at say 67% zoom, 10 seconds later, it gets blurry and then I get the warning from google maps to load the maps page at 100% zoom for best view. This wasn't an issue on previous firefoxes, and I haven't changed hardware, maybe it's a config setting? How do I fix this?

I found the directory with all the older versions of FF. but how do I download an executable file? I did a recent new install of FF on a new HD and now my passwords are gone - despite restoring the backup files. the new FF I downloaded uses lockwise; while my older version did not. I am hoping if I download and reinstall a slightly older version of FF - where I can restore my passwords and history and bookmarks and it actually Works - then if I update FF - all my 'stuff' will carry with the newer version.

Unless you have another idea of how to get my old FF back! yes I made a backup of my old profile.

thanks
