Several times now I post a question and I get this long running horizontal scroll.

I have firgured this out the time prior - a while ago - but now I must deal with it again and I do not wish to test this at this time or ever again.

Does anyone know why this is happening. The message should look like a standard text page. I am editing the text in notepad and paste into the message board. I use one long run-on sentence for each paragraph. So, I do not know why some of these lines should become encapsulated in code while others do not.

Why is this even an issue to occur and why is there not a description on this page on how to use this editor?

For the longest time, years, we have encountered interactive pop-ups that lead to failure of firefox to supply user friendly interaction. I can only think this has driven less avid users to decline interaction with firefox, basically driving them to other browsers or means instead of persisting with firefox. You've launched an older version of firefox is the most notorious pop-ups that has ever been delivered from firefox. the message goes on to read:

Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of firefox.

Most every time I open a file by this means it is through the file local system clicking on an html file and other times it occurs from an application on this computer directing me to a site where I should obtain specific information. I want you to remember that every time we save a pages those saves are in the file/folder combination of html that reside to on the computer; and, every time we wish to open one of these we are addressed with this less than ideal situation.

This advice has several deficiencies. First off as I see is that instead of offering a means to update the current version of firefox the user is given no alternative except to 'create a new profile'. How can this be a better alternative than an update?

Frustration that derive from this interaction is:

one, when I open a file I usually would like it opened in a specific profile so that all the data becomes associated with that profile

two, not only the time it takes to create a new profile and the lapse in an uninterrupted thought process but what to do with all the one-off profiles that are created in order to handle this particular situation. Further, every time a user wishes to open a file of this nature there is never an alternative means to tackle this reoccurring problem. For years it has been the same end-run-about.

In addition, this dialog seems flawed as we can always open the file with right-click file and select 'open with' through the file system in which the html file reside on the computer; but not when directly clicked on. If you try to search and read for the accepted answer to this issue you will find the answer is a bit more complicated than the average user will endeavor to install. More, I have seen that I can open the browser through the profile dialog box and never is it more than one version off yet I still have to deal with the frustrating pop-up.

Can we get an update button on the 'You've launched an older version of firefox' dialog box?

Thanks in advance! Gll

I could not log in with previous TOTP any more so I used a backup recovery code to gain access to the account. Disabled non-working TOTP and now I am trying to re-enable 2FA, but every time I successfully go through the process (there is a green bar on top of the screen that says "Two-step authentication enabled"), the end result is that 2FA is still disabled and not required when logging in to the firefox account.

I can watch Fubo, Netflix, Disney etc on FireFox - HOWEVER I have deleted history, cache, installed the latest Firefox beta app and I cannot progress past the home screen of Hulu. I can watch Hulu on Microsoft Edge but would much prefer to use FireFox. I even updated to the latest NVidia Driver with no success.

I have changed bout every setting that might possibly restrict Hulu under options/preferences. Sure have not found the elixir.

Do I sit tight waiting for Mozilla to get it handled or look up a Shaman?

Hello,

For some reason I cannot view saved log ins. When I try it asks for my windows credentials. I try logging in and it says that they do not work. I verify the log in is correct by logging into my Microsoft account, and into the PC itself with the same log in information. This makes it rather difficult to log on on something like my phone when I cannot see the generated passwords.

Thanks,

At some (random) point Firefox starts comsuming CPU very intensive. I can't detect any circumstances why and when it happens. Just after some period of using it freezes for a couple of second and then becomes slow and starts using CPU. I reload it and everything works fine again.

I use recommended perfomance settings and Firefox Developer 86.0b9 (64-bit). Please let me know if I can provide any additional information to help to solve the issue.

There was a previous thread covering this topic, but the solution suggested hadn't really worked - clearing cache and cookies did not solve the problem. For anyone struggling with the same problem, I wanted to leave the working solution where they could find it.

Disable adblock on poczta.o2.pl.

I use Adblock Ultimate. When it was on, the log-in page showed up fine, but as soon as I pressed "log-in", all I could see was a solid block of background colour. Disabling adblock just on that one page solved the issue immediately.

Thank you all for your time! :)

Był poprzednio stworzony wątek na ten temat, ale rozwiązanie które tam było zaproponowane nie działało - wyczyszczenine "ciasteczek" i cache nic nie zrobiło. W razie gdyby ktoś inny jeszcze miał ten sam problem, postanowiłam zostawić rozwiązanie gdzieś, gdzieby mogli je znaleźć.

Wyłącz adblocka na poczta.o2.pl.

Ja osobiście używam adblock ultimate. Kiedy go miałam włączonego, mogłam się zalogować bez problemu, ale jak tylko kliknęłam "zaloguj", nie widziałam nic więcej niż tylko kolor tła. Wyłączenie adblocka tylko na tamtej jednej stronie zdziałało cuda.

Dzięki za wasz czas! :)

Previously discussed here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1311003. Toggling browser.urlbar.update2 = true used to fix it, but no longer works.

I'm using 86.0b9 (64-bit) with both an address bar and search bar. Recently, if I type a g into the address bar the second suggestion is "search with google directly from the address bar. Typing an a does the same thing for amazon, w for wikipedia, etc. Search suggestions are turned off. Top sites are unchecked in the address bar settings. All Firefox home content is unchecked in settings.

Is it possible to remove these "search with" suggestions from the address bar drop down? Thanks.
