I can no longer email a link. Might be a Firefox problem but might be a Windows 10 issue. Have you heard from others about this?

When I click on email link, I get several options to try for the purpose of sending a link. When I click on one of them, one of two things will happen. Either the link page will immediately close without even giving me much opportunity to select a potential email means or, if I get to select one, I try to set it up and get an error code. Sorry but I didn't record the code.

I DO NOT WANT TO SAVE ANY PHOTOS FROM MAIL IN THE BROWSER !!!!!! ALL OF THESE PHOTOS SOW UP ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF MY "COMPOSE MAIL" SCREEN

I would really appreciate some assistance on this matter as some of my previous requests have been minimally answered and then completely ignored, or ignored from the onset. I would also appreciate an email to my inbox letting me know that someone has had the courtesy to answer my question, or ask for more clarification, and provide me with a reasonable solution to clear this matter up.

Please refer to the attachment.

Just bought a new desktop (Dell Inspiron 3650). When comparing Firefox on my laptop (both have Windows 10) there is a difference in the options sections. Both have the same version - 45.0.2 (x86 en-US). On laptop version, I have an option to accept cookies from sites, while my version on my desktop does contain anything about cookies.

In addtion, something is preventing me from downloading video from Dancing with the Stars on the desktop, while the same Fireox is working correctly. Not sure if this has anything with cookies. FYI everything works fine on Explorer on the desktop.

Any help would be appreciated. PS Virus protection is Bitedefend on both computers.

Thanks,

Tom

Firefox is crashing frequently. When I ask it to restart Firefox, another icon is created in my dock. This icon contains my open window. However, the other icon shows that the application is not responding, and will not allow me to Force Quit. I must restart my computer in order to get Firefox to work. I like Firefox, and think Chrome is a memory hog. But if it keeps crashing every time I open it, I do not know what to do?

New Version slowed to a crawl - no increase in CPU usage

1 month ago I updated from Firefox version 45.0.2 to Version 46.0. Immediately, Firefox slowed to a crawl. Pages loaded extremely slow, typing forms required considerable more time, scrolling web pages was jerky. There was NO NOTICEABLE INCREASE in CPU usage or memory observed in Task Mgr. I am running windows XP SP3. I did the recommended troubleshooting remedies, starting in safe mode, but, nothing changes. I reverted back to version 45.0.2 and the problem was immediately reversed. When version 47.0 was introduced, I once again updated and the problem returned. I have created a new profile to try and correct the problem, I've refreshed Firefox with negative results. Once again, I have reverted to version 45.0.2 until it can be determined what is causing this issue. I am on cable broadband 100 mbps download speed so this isn't an issue. I have tested up to 79 mbps download speed. The most severe problems occur on websites such as Facebook, however it is still very noticeable on other web pages, such as my banking and utility company web sites where I pay bills. It is slow trying to log in as it takes a very noticeable longer length of time to load the pages. Any help is extremely appreciated to correct this issue?

There is no fluidity in using PDFs in Firefox after a major update. Now, I am forced to save every PDF somewhere before I can view it. PLease tell me what I need to do to get back the functioning features of Adobe that I once had. The fault is not with Adobe because I had them help me with this. And all works fine in Chrome, which I hate to use. Please advise. thank you!

When I go to this website http://www.foxnews.com/ it keeps returning back to the very top of the main web page instead of returning to where I left off on the main page after I click on a news article to read it and then go back after reading it. This causes me to have to scroll back down the main page to find where I was. This is very aggravating to keep doing. This is the only website this is happening on. Troubleshooting done as follows: cache cleared, add on's disabled and restarted and still happens, computer restarted and still happens, safe mode tried and still happens, Firefox refreshed and still happens. I have tried this website on IE11 and it works fine by returning to the part of the webpage where I was.

Thanks

I have a limited amount of data allotment each month, and I'm trying to stop the autoplay part of the websites with autoplay videos on them.

I tried the add on "FlashBlock", and it worked good for stopping the auto play, but it also blocked saving files to my USB (stick) flash drive.

I'd like to stop the auto play, but I would also like to save files to my stick.

Help!

Frequent updates to latest version, non-beta, require enabling all add-ons. Help me keep my Firefox browser!

Every day, multiple times a day, every time I open Firefox (latest updated version 45., non-Beta), multiple tabs open for every single one of my add-ons, prompting me to manually update them. For each update, I must go through a two- or three-step process, pushing a button twice if no restart is required, three times if it is. To say the least, this is driving me up the wall. Sadly, I have yet to find a solution on the support forum. I am a long-time Mozilla devotee. I believe in Mozilla and Firefox, and prefer this non-profit, community-driven product to any commercially-driven alternative -- hands-down. But this constant updating of add-ons is making my Firefox browsing life simply untenable. I cannot continue to do this. Can anyone give me guidance on a way out? I would so love to NOT have to switch to a different browser. Many thanks in advance to this amazing global community.

Hi,

I am using latest version of Firefox with few Tab Groups extension. I have following problem - I have several tabs open and grouped. When I close tab from group a I am moved immediately to latest opened tab in group b.

Looks like Firefox returns me to latest opened tab in order - can this behaviour be changed to stay on current group of tabs?
