Many times when I launch Firefox (v. 48.0), a second tab opens automatically and it is directed to the noscript page, which happens to be right now https://noscript.net/?ver=2.9.0.14&prev=2.9.0.13. I don't want this, the focus changes to that page even if I am right in teh middle of typing in an URL in the tab that I launched. It is very annoying.

When I bought my computer and downloaded Firefox, I went into Options to customize my preferences. Since then when I open Firefox, the Options tab appears, in addition to my home page tab, and as I use the browser more and more Options tabs appear. This is a nuisance that I have not been able to eliminate. I have the latest browser.

Hello: I've searched everywhere and seems NO OPTION to change my email address in my Firefox Account? The past forum had no posts from qualified Firefox users. One post said "there is no account in firefox" huh? The next post took the topic off the subject of "change email address in firefox account" to "change email address in the notifications" ?? So why is it so difficult to change my email address in my Firefox Account? Thank you.

Occasionally I am interrupted by a displayed screen "advising" of an update to Firefox. I have always done whatever is necessary to get away from it and not click on anything on that screen. Is this some sort of phishing? Have others reported this?

I was browsing the below site, when the crash happened, not surprising considering the site's resource gulping, bizarre, self-serving "stutter browse" behavior; but I was a bit surprised that the damage was so widespread that the report widget also crashed while I was 15 or 20 characters into explaining the details. The latter crash may very well be my fault; I have fine motor control problems, and trying to type on a DELL Inspiron family 15 model 5559 laptop, while dangling over a hair trigger touch pad is no fun for a 72 year old Parkinson's plus Essential Tremor sufferer.

Under the circumstances, do not expect much help for me besides identifying a problem that I encountered.

My lack of experience with this 6 weeks old to me Windows 10 environment is a contributing factor.

I'll try to identify the environment by typing in the system About page, whose content just naturally is an image, not text, and resists attempts to copy it in any way I know.

Nope, overheated from frustration. Best to just send what little I could capture.

BIG thank you to Wesley Branton! You are so awesome!

Moses a smaller thanks to you for your comment and for closing the old thread. Your fix would've been above my abilities and comfort level. I'm really sorry that my question was off-topic. I've used "only" mozilla firefox since I had my first computer and have loved it. The fact that mozilla firefox was constantly crashing (and sending crash reports) I thought the mozilla firefox community would be a perfect place to come. Had you, Moses been the first reply to my question I would've been forced to move on from mozilla firefox for good! There's no way that I could've put up with the constant crashes any longer. Please feel free to immediately close or delete this thread! Thank you.

Thanks to mozilla support. Appreciate you all.

Wesley Branton you are the man! Please take care and have a safe and wonderful weekend!

Please consider this question/issue solved. T/U

I would like to check if there is a bug with printer in Firefox: HTML with CSS target selector https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7w3ZGc8CTgqMUxWZkdONlhyZWM

If you select `ru` it will hide all non-ru text, but when you is trying to print Firefox resets target selector and again there is english text. Chrome is able to print correctly with CSS target selected elements

The question is it maybe a bug in Firefox that resets target selector?

Hello, So, update after update in the last two months, it started to loose functionality. First it lost auto fill settings - stored usernames, passwords, etc. And after latest update it stopped to do redirects. By redirects I mean, let say after a successful login the web site should redirect you to a members area. It doesn't do it anymore. To be more clear, it doesn't do this for example: <meta content="0;URL=&lt;? echo $something;?&gt;/page.php" http-equiv="refresh"> And it's not that I've changed something, just ran the latest update which is currently 48.0.2 Any help is highly appreciated.

Best regards

Not sure what triggered a recent change: either a Firefox update or a change to my IMAP server password. I used to see all my IMAP folders on Firefox - now I only see the standard folders: Inbox, Sent, Junk, Trash, Drafts. The folders still exist on the server, but don't show up on Firefox. All the folders are marked as "subscribed" on the server.
