The "badges" phenomenon is like a virus which seems to be spreading across web forums, infecting every forum I'm a member of.

I absolutely hate badges. They serve no point whatsoever other than appealing to arrogance and displays of pride, and they are extremely childish. I am NOT a child, I am an adult. What is with this phenomenon of 'baby adults' who want to bring 'play toys' into a serious discussion forum?

Is there any way to turn off/hide badges?

Just ran a search in the address bar and was taken to this "Firefox search contest 2020" page. Never happened before and I assume it's a scam, have checked my add-ons and plugins but I don't see anything suspicious. Is this something to be concerned about?

If helpful, the url for this page is: https://sweetrelxme16.live/2262313374/?utm_campaign=QPF8euu28II5lw7O2iHhCugVqK5RzfdNsTpLaMM91qY1&t=main9_f90c820c180a04261c8d0973930afd&f=1&fp=4e4lHv53VRFsZD7g8DH8cHoGoZqhKuVVuUJjMi0vd9MavAzv9Ra8r35cGpaMIxPQMRUMvVHb0l82DIdO3468J0I1IGraOutgrge%2Bq9NWJxSgTtCArhRG9wrtn5m01%2Bx0n3MmjZiSV6rdotDp1uZK3X%2FC73QNaXrVEwU6oP9mIPSfJK%2B9iUDEhYFO3CUB0gqNmsYjipzEBg99p%2B0M3CKQbwifntTBZHvPFeMpyKOWKE7SKgze%2FpKn5JZBWY3pSSBh4y1pXXC3eYKb2LhL2ZoH4%2BWQ9hbMgWcybfFg5BkLBtWg1kwuZsikClxevJtm60RKV7prd51JiGjLrzf%2FNTDqxdrpwU2A0t4hnMG%2FGjpBHkvqc7jsROicHRQJdXvl6Xw%2BK1B4QHr4OdFM%2BRtvtMIuVoWNw3847b%2Bz5EijdBw1lIcKWD54y5Ykl2UHIWkWE3GJ0k%2Boz0qwm%2Bjks2VWfUk1dLIjwzZZ67mP3%2BIlzBvpAGyhYi%2FWISpYwui97wQ8U53uQKjnBTYIz1WN5e6HZkKCRHJTfzo%2FYcUJhu%2Fk4HDS04VDapoV6VLpeDv4JHDFP3AcqH5EPLVv648vIOUc%2B27TQByyZx70ORGYyOztbMH6xU0v%2B%2FM6DLecFWnHAPkQ8X%2Fk1igvbBNx8cPPUGQOchdh9Y1Hc7nm%2F4mZ%2BHsCVI5oeT%2FX7TJ15lDFHvc7uVp7J61DCWuWlQdtwjhqXu7Ms0k45AQQwlDJe4XvNbuDOTcti8QfPQw0zMaHTsoH6KjWUiBG6Qlk5UE4apuslT%2BVS8%2FhGlqRo190rqmBhsp3GLn%2B%2FkX8eoNQBK5adrrme1vjyuDFwg3XB1E0E9FY5RGGQuCmS2NgJ5NY1epvc0bT8qUYVwoKESw3dxc0I8oaHXm8pjJotg8dJ9p18vFzQfENSQ1Lif%2FXLA3qsLDDGOeLC5KQwPTUDb%2Bbwt5MjbLFbi09eakKIqSw1T6jyb6AzUIbIYU9CobdiZXlqXR1faA65a%2Bb49rHlYpFMsmtVMGAZGJ6GRcpqgidhwUeEfDWptpsKYjjcWxDXhB3bu93CuigV8dR%2FobTpbwwGmyFCtClfyPoqFgQ57R83bMHQta0ufdOf5rN%2BN%2BUUcgassNy4H84lggSNKjX1Tfle8JYPE8P850TKT8zL0qRyVHs9cq5ng7k%2FQl3TB847FICfrcWLUcxAU5Ed5hGOBPMcjGbc1pABVRV9%2BIivKKTvd06vBei1U27t1QJnlPCRub9A1wI2MEwWlJijoNtXlXN1odzAUFPLHNLG%2B3OjI80qmpNeUJoxRmfUN%2B%2BohI9hbzBle58Ij9659u%2FRIvLRx5Cs96YiHAeFadW%2FDvWvDJh3TzYhc798ZMqiB4KIcFtttKF8siLLCWSmhOmvNl0xVlAZBjrv%2Bs7beWbDKa2

In version 75 when I click in the address bar, a list of my most common sites appears, but at the TOP of this list are search with google and also amazon.co.uk. These are options I do not want to see, just "my" web sites. How can I remove these two items from the drop down list? Thanks.

System: Windows 10 32-bit laptop

Problem: non-responsive UI on one laptop only. This includes inability to configure local options. nothing works. Menus drop down, but no matter what is selected, the selection does not highlight, menu hides normally but no action is taken by the browser

If I manually type in the url it sits there. no spinning cursor, nothing.

Browser does NOT crash... It simply sits there doing nothing. All other browsers work fine.

What I have done Restart the laptop Double check Firewall permissions Ran a scan before and after installation (0 threats found) Logged in as administrator as well as user account Ran performance monitor nothing alarming noted Uninstall and Reinstall. (Problem still exists)

How to hide the address/URL bar again ?

Hello all,

I run a bunch of web applets locally on my computer for personal use only (http://localhost/...), and until recently I could successfully launch FF using window.open(...) with the new window NOT showing the address bar (because it takes space and looks ugly within the applet, so I want to avoid it at all cost).

I believe this changed with FF 76 (I now run v. 76.0.1 64-bit on a Windows10 based computer), anyway at this point it seems impossible to NOT have the address bar show up in a FF window. :-/

To be clear : I have searched for a solution in this forum and elsewhere, found the solution to another new problem with FF ("megabar"), also seen the trick to hide the url in the address bar - but this is not what I'm looking for : I just want to *get rid of the address bar*, period.

Thanxx in advance for any help with this issue (surprised noone else seems to complain about this). :)

Hi, I've been notified that there was a data breach of my email and password - but the data breach was at a company where I do not have an account. I guess that is possible somehow, but how do I figure out which password they got, because all my passwords for different companies are different. If they got a password for some other company I should change it, but I don't know which one to change.

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

Some of well known sites such as "drive.google.com" & "mail.yahoo.com" is resulting in "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue page" in Firefox. They are opening just fine in other browsers.

This issue has cropped up since past week in Firefox. Not sure what is the root cause behind the problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox, but still no change.

I have checked the certificates of those sites, and they are seems to be in order. I mean other browsers are able to open without issue, then why Firefox is not opening them for me?

Please let me know if this issue can be fixed in Firefox.

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

Is the Help menu the best way to submit feedback to Mozilla? Does anyone actually read it? I've submitted feedback that way before but it feels like no one saw it.

You don't even get a "sent" confirmation - all I get is a page saying something like "Your feedback will be used to improve Firefox", which doesn't confirm the feedback was sent!

I actually sent feedback about this last year, saying that the "sent" message should be clearer. But who knows if anyone saw it! LOL
