Hi

I have read all the solutions suggested for helping solve problem with spelling checker tried a fix but to no help.

Here is the problem, when i right click the mouse to get access to language for spell checking, I do not get the alternatives that include selection of language. This happens in the text area but not in the address area where I can see the option of selecting the language and hence even being able to spell check.

I have tried selecting the language in Outlook, gmail, creating a post in LinkedIn and elsewhere and all I get is nothing.

Incidentally, writing here was ok without any issues.

So, friends out there, please help me solve this one

kind regards

Edward

How do i go about restoring my old firefox data? Firefox suggested restarting the browser and once it opened back up it deleted all my extentions etc. and placed an 'old firefox data' folder on my desktop. I tried finding solutions but nothing worked. I typed in about:profile. Went to default profile. I clicked on Local Directory - Show in folder. And then pasted everything from my old firefox data folder into that. And nothing worked. Any help????

Hello good people, This is rather a request for advice than an issue report. I' ve learned about the facebook container add-on and wanted to know if there is a need for it if someone was making sure to exclusively open facebook.com in its own profile. Say you set up a profile(from about:profiles) namely "BIg Brothers" for notorious trackers like google, facebook , twitter etc so they can perpetually track each other with simple rules to observe like : - Never open an external(shared) link - Never access any other website through that profile.

Is there a particular feature the add-on is bringing up that the native interface is missing ? The other reason is add-ons are great but they tend to bloat the system impeding the browsing experience. I am the kind of guy who opens 7 concurrent tabs each running heavy js code so the lighter the better.

Thank you in advance,

Dom

I have had to change the Search Engine back multiple multiple times after changing to DuckDuckGo and removing the others!

Why does the system Windows 10, if that is the culprit continue to change it away from DDGo? I removed the Microsoft Edge File from my Computer. It used to be the one that replaced it!

I am using containers, and have made every setting I can think of to keep my log-ins private. Instead, every time I go to ProtonMail I get shown every email login I have used lately, including a gmail login I only use in a gmail container! ProtonMail advise they do not store this data.

The passwords are not stored, thank goodness.

HOW is Firefox saving it? WHERE? This is actually the creepy and intrusive tracking I came to Firefox to get away from - now they seem more like the perpetrator and I have to go right out of my way to protect myself from Firefox itself. Now I guess gmail knows all my protonmail logins.

Any solutions? I hope my tone is not too exasperated, but if there was another browser option out there right now I'd be gone in minutes.

Thank you!

Trying to set up HTML5 peer-peer video conferencing. Its working on Chrome but not Firefox. I have looked at all the available solutions. I have reinstalled firefox; I have checked that media.windows.foundation is set to "true"; I have checked in "safe mode".

This challenge is an issue which occurs 90% of the time. I have yet to assess what conditions occur when html5 video is finally displayed. I can only say that display only occurrred once today and that was when I first inspected the site this morning.

This situation is occurring both in Firefox and the developer edition. Firefox is latest edition and there are no plugins

Any suggestions?

attempting to login to Firefox sync I'm told the system has just locked my account - which is odd because I just logged in with the account to log this issue. Message is : "Sorry. We’ve locked your account.

The confirmation email we sent to xxxxxx@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."

There is nothing wrong with my gmail account either - I checked gmail is not bouncing mail back sent to my address.

I have owned my Mac Book Pro since 2014 and I inadvertently re-installed Firefox without knowing a new profile would be created. I am not able to load my old profile into the new one. I can see the "old Firefox data" folder and have tried everything Firefox has to fix this but nothing is working. I have lost 6 years of bookmarks!

Anything other tricks to fix this? Thanks!
