Please be patient am old, lol. Example, I have a Yahoo home page and click on something I want to read it opens and most is ok the video on the page is fine, it works but there is a still photo a little further down in the article that does not show. If I open the exact same article in Chrome or Edge it is fine everything is visible. I have noticed every once in a while where the image should be it looks like it is moving in a waving motion but still no image. I have gone to the page info looked under permissions and do not see anything for allow images but there is Autoplay that shows: Picture below And If I go to Media and start clicking on the image addresses until I find the one that should be there it does show it. I do work from home and I don’t want to quit using Firefox but I really need it to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Several months ago, I was not able to access my contacts or calendar. In other words, no response when trying to click on any of those icons. However, I tried a different browser such as Edge and everything worked fine. So.....am I going to have to change my default browser. It kinda looks like I will use Edge from now on. Any thoughts........ Use Yahoo mail.

Trying to request a demo from bigcommerce.com. It complains javascript is not enabled. ("Please enable javascript and try again" about:config shows javascript.enabled = true.

What I've tried: 1. Disabled all addons / extensions 1 by 1 until they were all disabled. 2. Turned off tracking protection 3. Turned off content blocking. 4. Set all group policies to "not configured" (Had only disabled off telemetry and update any way). 5. Set network settings to "no proxy". 6. Cleared cache 7. Removed all bigcommerce.com cookies. 8. Reset all permissions (location, camera, notifications etc).

If I restart with add ons disabled it works fine, yet I'd disabled all add ons. The only preferences I had disabled were related to telemetry (in about:config).

Ever since I was prompted to download the update to Firefox 78.6.0 ESR on 12/15, Facebook Messenger will not load for me at all. I keep getting the message "A web page is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do?"

It loads for me perfectly fine in Chrome, so this definitely appears to be a FF issue. I'm not having issues with any other site since the update.

I've tried deleting my cookies and cache, I've tried opening FF with add-ons on disabled. I'm at a loss. It was working fine earlier in the day, and has not worked at all since the update.

Any thoughts, advice, recommendations, anything would be greatly appreciated.

When version 84 was installed(automatically) it took out everything in my FF, including book marks and reverted to a new "install". Now when I go to "options" there is a notice that indicates: "Your browser is being managed by your organization." How do I rectify this situation and why did ver 84 clean out my complete installation?

BLOCKING FILE SYSTEM ACCESS -- DANGEROUS ALLOWANCE -- IDEAS & SUGGESTIONS

Hello to all, I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years… (read more)

Hello to all,

I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years of developments... Why? To keep this allowed makes it too easy for hackers, especially with multiple screens and a shadow/background screens available which can be running in the background, not seen, when hackers do that.. Kind of the way TeamViewer allows help to be provided remotely. Kind of screen sharing. Oh well...

Maybe need lots of complaints from you all to get this changed?..


Try yourselves to use file://C:/ with 2 // and file:///C:/ with 3 // and both are allowing access to the whole file system and any data file. BONKERS??? But why to use 3 /// if 2 // still works? Insider's job or programming conflict? Why would Firefox programmers allow that? I do not understand...

I tried to use selective website blocker, but for file:/// that addon says that the page is not supported... Maybe another type of addon could be developed for this to be blocked and secured once and for all, but not sure if Firefox would allow such an access or such a blocking. May cause issues with Downloads and accessing download folder from within Firefox. HOWEVER, they could block any system or file access from the ADDRESS BAR and SEARCH BAR and then do a work-around solution by developing a special warning 'dialog message' each time when any user (owner or remote user) tries to access forlder to see or use any file. That would be a lot like a guest account requiring password to access special folder or file, or wants to perform an action usually not allowed for a guest user. Password is required for that each time, or at leats a visual confirmation. That would help, I hope...

Would need to re-educate users after this! TOO DANGEROUS TO KEEP THIS IN SUCH A WAY AS IT IS NOW!!!!

DOES FIREFOX TEAM UNDERSTAND THIS? Maybe they forgot about this, maybe they did not figure out how to solve this, or maybe someone from an inside is helping hackers to have a very easy access? Not sure, but this "open doors to all system and data files for anyone" is shocking!


What about business or government people? What about online bullying and harrassment? What about privacy about which Firefox writes so much? Need more complaints to make this a serious issue. So, everyone, please write your own comments or complaints to Firefox and Chrome directly and maybe they will listen. This may take more work than we think, but my ideas may help. What about your ideas? Express them below and maybe they will help as well.


You all can ask them for this to be blocked or solved, so ask. Maybe my ideas will help to get this moving. Write your own to them as well. And Microsoft may need to get involved as well because Firefox, and from what I read, Chrome allows this too... Other browsers may be doing that as well...!!!!!! There are loads of various browsers available!!!! I read something about Windows Policies, but I do not understand what that is...


(( !!! )) If any of you will try any system changes in an attempt to try solving this issue, make sure you are okay to risk with crashed system requiring reinstall or recovery to be used, and then, write down all the changes you do in detail before carrying any further and applying them because that may ruin the system without a way to recover it.

Thank you in advance.

First off, the latest update once again stopped me from dragging web pages to my desktop. Overcame that with the "-no-deelevate" command. Although now I have a problem launching these saved pages. If firefox is closed and I double click on one of the saved pages it launches just fine but if I already have Firefox open and then double click a saved page nothing happens. Any way to fix this?

I was hoping to re-order the extension icons in my menu bar but it seems like that can't be done (akin to how open tabs can just be re-ordered), so I figured the best thing to do was to remove them and re-populate the menu bar with them in the desired order.

So I didn't uninstall them, but removed them from the menu bar, thinking I could then just put them back in the order I'd like, but I'm not seeing any way to re-insert their icons/shortcuts into the menu bar. Even once they're completely uninstalled and re-installed, they no longer seem to go into the menu bar as per usual, as if they've been earmarked as not belonging there regardless of a whole new re-install.

In brief: Is there any way to get the icon/shortcut for installed extensions back into the menu bar once they've been removed from there?

Thanks for your time.
