I've used prime video since 3 years without problems. From 2 days (14 Jan 2020) the prime video player gives me the error 4315 when I try to start a playback and it does not work. I've tried on different linux machine with the latest upgrade istalled (both SO and browser) and the problem is the same. I've disabled all addons and also the tracking protection of firefox without success. Does someone have the same issue? Any ideas on how to solve? Probably an Amazon problem? Please help me if you can, thanks !

Even though the XLSX file in the example (images attached) is identified as such, when trying to open the file, the Launch Application window appears which is for files of "file" Content Type. This started occurring about 3 months ago, after a Firefox Update. I do not know to which version unfortunately. It affects all users so it's not profile related. I tried to Refresh Firefox and Restart with Add-ons Disabled from Tools > Help > Troubleshooting information but it didn't help.

hey guys,

I have another problem with this browser. here is a great example of the problem => go here to my website: http://www.adamevanovich.com (see attached image)

there you can see a pop up dialog that asks for a password. if I enter the right one the first time, it accepts it and saves it in the browser saved passwords. however, if I go into my hosting company's dashboard, change that password, then go back to that page and enter the new password, I get a pop up asking me if I want to update??? I press "yes" or "update password", but alas, the next time i go that freakin page and have to enter a password, the old login credentials are automatically populated!! can you guys help with this too?

Hi,

I have a large number of bookmarks saved in my PC-based Firefox which I want to be able to access from my new Samsung Galaxy Android mobile.

I created a Firefox account on the PC and installed Firefox on the mobile. I then used Firefox Sync and all the bookmarks did indeed appear on the mobile Firefox, which is great.

As a test, I then added a new bookmark at the PC Firefox end, but this is not appearing in the mobile Firefox. Both the Firefox accounts (same account on PC and mobile) are logged into.

Should new PC Firefox bookmarks appear automatically in the mobile Firefox, or do they have to be 'manually pushed' from the PC?

Thanks,


bern

From my public IP of 104.158.49.18 FF ses the web site https://www.publicmobile.ca/ as a potential security risk. FF is reporting this incorrectly as other web browsers show this site as valid. I have included the certificate values.

what is the reason for the error meesage? Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.publicmobile.ca because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

I've lost all bookmarks, logins and saved passwords, add ons and basically everything. I have made sure that all my data is synced and even tested it a couple of times after changing devices and every time it worked perfectly and restored my data. Now, I've just changed devices after a while with no internet, I go to sign in and I forgot my pass so I reset it and signed in successfully but nothing at all is restored not a single thing. I'm devastated, I hope there a solution to this.

I'm trying to do a clean install of Firefox to return to 100% default settings. I don't want any of my old data, bookmarks, cookies, or browsing history, but every time I uninstall and reinstall Firefox, all of my previous bookmarks along with my browsing history are imported into Firefox.

How do I do an actual clean install, that allows me to start over without importing any previous data?

  • edit

I've also deleted my Firefox account and opened a new one multiple times, which I would assume would delete my old data. But even after deleting my account my old data is still imported to Firefox after uninstalling and re-installing it.

Hello.

If I am on Chrome, I am able to open a new window by left clicking the 'hamburger' menu button in the top right, holding the left click button down and releasing it on top of 'Open New Window'. I don't have to release the click button and click again. This greatly improves productivity.

Any option to do the same on Firefox?

Note - if I enable the menu bar at the top (File, Edit...), then Firefox behaves in the same way as Chrome. This would solve my issue, however, I like the simplicity and space conservation of the hamburger menu.

In short, I'd like the behaviour of the full menu (with respect to single clicking) to be the same in the 'hamburger' menu.

1) Where do I find the "Firefox smart search field" that starts proposing pages when I have keyed in just the couple of first letters of the page I am looking for ?

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.

Hello

Is there some documentation to explain what the font size options mean?

I apologize but I havent studied fonts, I just use the one I feel most comfortable with.

Generally, for me, the font size is too small. And the Adv. page is confusing.

How does the minimum font size relate to the proportional or monospace sizes?

The proportional has serif, sans-serif. The the next 2 opts are serif and sans-serif. Are they related? Because I can set serif to sans-serif and sans-serif to serif.

Att. my settings
