hi, have got jaws 2018, latest update on a toshiba satellite pro 64 bit system c-50-a. now when i use jaws and firefox 61, and when 60 came out, had a few bugs. the freedomscientific engineers could not rectify or reproduce this problem. some times on a certain site http://www.ebroadcast.com.au, jaws links won't come up and have to press 7 or 8 times before it comes up. and if i am on http://www.jw.org and then try to download a mp3, it goes to the desktop. and on http://www.gmail.com, in my spam folder, the first checkbox with the x key, but then have to hit it twice to jump to the next check box and also on http://groups.io, if i try to enter on a link, took me to the desktop. that's why using google chrome. if maybe james the who is the accessibility lead at mozilla to e-mail and try to reproduce the issues. that's why i am using google chrome at the moment. if i download firefox 62, will these issues be fixed. thanks, in australia.

What guarantees of accountability and transparency exist in Mozilla's phishing and malware protections to prevent false positives?

A site of mine has been blocked "because it may trick you into doing something dangerous" etc. The phrasing suggests that you aren't even sure if there is a real problem, but you're blocking it just in case. Nowhere is the cause specified. There are no details of what behaviour or code on the site caused it to be listed, or who listed it, or why. Just a big message saying that this is a Deceptive Site. There's no one I can talk to about this, no way to find out any information whatsoever - there's not even any notification that the site has been blocked. All of which makes it just about impossible to actually FIX whatever is causing this issue (assuming that there is one, and I haven't just been reported randomly by some troll).

So, to sum up: there's no useful information, no transparency and no accountability anywhere in this process. Just Google throwing their weight around and you letting them.

I'm not saying that there is no problem - there may be a legitimate issue that needs addressing. What I'm saying is that the way the Mozilla Foundation has dealt with the problem makes it more or less impossible to actually do that addressing. Who exactly does that help? How does this make anyone's internet experience better?

The about:config trick doesn't work on Drudge. Chrome has an add-on that blocks autorefresh, but it doesn't work on Drudge, either. Apparently Drudge is hell-bent on autorefreshing his page every thirty seconds whether you like it or not. Has anyone figured out how to make Drudge stop autorefreshing? I used to use NoScript, but since Quantum, NoScript has been transformed into a monstrosity I can't make head or tail of.

A transparent blue overlay appears on all Firefox Toolbars, Tabs. Menus, Settings Pages, etc - but not on actual web pages which display fine.

This happened immediately after the Update to v62.

The effect looks a bit like when you select a page in windows and it's highlighted in blue. The text on the active tab is also blurred but is sharp on the other tabs.

I've tried restarting browser and computer, changed the theme (back to default) and disabled anti-virus (AVG) but it hasn't solved the problem.

I have screenshots but I can't get them to upload.

Thanks, G

Firefox Quantum doe NOT work properly ans so I am looking for an alternative. I heard that Vivaldi had lots of add-ons like FF had before. Is that true?

I will carry on using Firefox ESR 52.9 till I can find an alternative. BUT for the time being FF has updated itself to the ESR 60.2 so beforehand I am looking for a way to download FF ESR 52.9. How can have it??? Because here www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/organizations/all/ it does not show anymore.

Thanks for your help.

I would like to have a region search button available right under the search bar, basically like google chrome - you can just select tools then country and "my country" or "South Africa" or whatever region you are in.

Right now you need to click tools - advanced search - (then you cant even type the first letters of your country, you have to scroll down through hundreds of countries) then select advanced search. Takes me roughly 20sec per search when it could take me 2 clicks. This seems ridiculous when it could be - Tools - Country - click (like chrome)

None of these pages cover my topic but all you can seem to do is keep sending me to different effin pages. SO ONE MORE TIME. I DELETED MY FIREFOX PROFILE FROM MY COMPUTER BY ACCIDENT. IT IS NO LONGER THERE I CAN NOT REPAIR IT BECAUSE IT IS NO LONGER THERE. FIREFOX WILL NOT WORK BECAUSE IT CAN'T FIND MY PROFILE (well what was your first clue Col. Mustard?) ALL OF THE SUPPORT PAGES EXPLAIN HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM BY GOING TO MY PROFILE.... IT'S NOT THERE. IT HAS BEEN DELETED!!! Now I have tried uninstalling firefox. and then downloading and installing a new version.....IT STILL WILL NOT WORK BECAUSE IT CANNOT FIND MY PROFILE, BECAUSE MY PROFILE HAS BEEN DELETED.

After a last update of Firefox, Kasperksy told me, that firefox websites are not protected by this security software and they force me to use google chrome for to be protected. But I want to use firefox because of its tracking protection and privacy sites. Is there any reason to bar Mozilla from protecting. In former times there was an add-on, which doesn't exist any longer.

When reading a long article without any mouse movement or other activity, the screen reverts to my screen saver after about 2 -3 minutes. The Windows system is set for 2 hours. As far as I can tell, there are no add-ons or extensions that are doing this. Testing the same web sites using Chrome, I do not have the problem. Nor do I see it with other applications.
