The following code work in Firefox v54, but stopped working on Firefox v68.4.1 (possibly earlier version as well).

index.html: <body>

<object type="image/svg+xml" data="test.svg", id="test_svg_id">

   Your browser doesn't support SVG
</object>

<script type="text/javascript" src="test.js"></script>

</body>

javascript: function init() {

 console.log("init()");

// Get the overall SVG defined in the Index HMTL page var svg_object = document.getElementById("test_svg_id");

// Get the SVG document inside the Object tag var svg_document = svg_object.contentDocument; }

Any idea why contentDocument is always null?

In the now current verusion of FF (72.0 - 64 bit) the indicator when you are dragging/dropping a tab like has been made almost invisible. It is now a VERY faint light blue and looks to be only 1px wide. It is VERY difficult to see for many with limited vision. How do I get the previous drag/drop indicator back so I know where I am dropping the tab being moved?

'Never Remember History' Option Clarifications: Issue Resolved

Do I have the following information correct:

1a) Selecting 'Never Remember History' means that I do not need to click on the 'clear history' option (even though all of the options are selected) because none of the history or any of the selections will be remembered to begin with.

b) Clicking the 'clear data' option is also unnecessary with 'Never Remember History' selected because this data will be cleared when the browser is closed but I can delete it manually if the cache becomes too large during a session.

2. Since 'Always Remember History' saves the history and 'Never Remember History' does not remember the history to begin with, what is the point of manually clicking 'Clear History?'

Hello-Please answer each question separately:.

1. Just to double-change, is it safe to open the pop-up list because I am only checking what has already been blocked OR does viewing them open them with the potential for more pop-ups to be displayed?

2. Does the list of pop-ups have to be 'cleared' manually or does it delete automatically when the tab is closed?

When I am logged into my AOL account and I forward an email, all graphics disappear, all links change to standard text, and the format changes. Therefore, I cannot properly share emails. This has worked for as long as I can remember and started giving me problem within the last 2 weeks. BTW, this works fine in Internet Explorer and up until a few weeks ago worked fine in Firefox. Current version is 71.0 (64-bit). Please find 2 files attached - 1 of the original email an one of the forwarded email. Please advise.

I have Firefox 73.0 (64 bit) on Windows 7 and am moving to Windows 10 using Laplink (yeah, ok). Laplink does not seem to see this version of Firefox to transfer over. So, I used sync on the Win 7 unit for everything and downloaded Firefox 73.0 (64 bit) to the Win 10 unit, and then logged on and synced. Everything seemed to move over except the browsing history. How do I get browsing history to transfer to Windows 10? Thanks.

How to switch back Firefox display after displaying Source Page View with Ctrl-U

The CTRL-U shortcut displays the source version of the current page. In some specific situations, this feature can be useful, but not very often for regular users (in contrast to developers). Unfortunately I can't find a way to switch back from this view: Ctrl-U isn't a toggle and there's no other shortcut that could be used to display initial view again. Also, I haven't found a menu command useful in such situation.

Also it is impossible to disable Firefox shortcuts selectively. Thus if you press Ctrl-U by chance then you cant view the original rendered page version and you lost what you entered in editing fields on the page.

Is there a way to achieve some level of control over this unwanted "improvement"?

After updating to Firefox 73 (running on Windows 7), no pages will load. Saved tabs have a blank URL bar, opening a new tab and putting in a URL does nothing, no built-in pages (such as the various about: pages, options page, etc.) work, nothing. All basic troubleshooting (including refreshing, reinstallation, and so on) completed with no change.

After upgrading to Firefox 73, my browser can't load any webpage. This happens if I type the url, click on a bookmark or even follow a link on an email. If I try other browsers, all pages load normally. No add-ons are enabled on Firefox. Also, I noticed that the about:config page isn't loading. If I revert back to an older version, like 67.0, the normal operation restores. But, with the next Firefox restart that installs the update 73 the problem reappears. I have also checked to see if Firefox runs in compatibility mode but it didn't. Please help me solve this issue.

When I click Update, 13,2 MB are downloaded, then immediately another 53,7 MB and after that message appears like - Firefox can't update to the latest version. I disabled all extensions. Are there other solutions besides installing the application again? Surely, after such an operation, I have to reconfigure something again :(

Can I at least find out the reason why this is happening? Maybe some logs?

We have a simple HTML home page that has links to the sites we most visit. This is the default page that comes up when we start FF. For instance, the web site for CNBC financial news is coded in HTML like this:

  • <a href="http://www.cnbc.com/">CNBC</a>
  • All the web links are in lists in cells a multi-cell table. There are about 40 of these links in the home page.

    While debugging a network problem recently using wireshark, I noticed that when I opened this home page in FF, There was a storm of DNS queries for all of the web sites in the home page! None of the web links were clicked on, this happens when FF starts up and just displays the home page. The same thing is happening on Windows 7 and Linux.

    I consider this invasive and would like this activity to stop.

    Why is this happening? Does this "feature" have a name? How do I stop this from happening?

    Thanks, Ed

    The past few days I am unable to post comments on "blogspot" platformed sites. These sites require a GMail user account as an identity, which I have. But when trying to post a comment, after typing it in it disappears when I try to preview it or post it. It just goes away. One of the blog site hosts has told me it's a FF problem, and to try another browser. Everything works fine with Chrome. Is there a fix in the works>?

    Its a huge security concern. Anybody that has access to your computer can see your passwords. As very few of us have a different password for each place we login obviously if you have some you have more. The obvious solution is to have 2 levesl of passwords. One is those we don't care about, that aren't intrusive in our lives. The other is those that could damage us if in the hands of bad people. Maybe there's an extension for this that doesn't allow the extension company access to our passwords like passwords managers would? I just want something to make some passwords not visible by anyone, including me. Because I can't trust myself.  :)
