Hi,

My Mozilla Firefox Web developer tool keeps autonomously toggling on/off in any Firefox window/tab..

Its as-if I'm repeatedly hitting Ctrl-Shft-I (which brings up the web developer tool in the bottom 1/4 of the browser).

I've checked all Setting, turned off all hardware acceleration as suggested for similar flickering problem (which wasn't on anyway).

I use Norton 360 Security Software but have Norton Safe Web disabled. The only active Extensions are Firefox Multi-Container and Firefox Sideview.

Its not doing it at the moment, but I'm not sure exactly what triggers it and expect it to happen again.

Last time it happened I was browsing Amazon. Hitting Ctrl-Shift-I only makes is turn off until start scrolling again, etc.

I don't think its virus related, because I use Norton 360, and Task manager "Performance Tab" show the computer is generally very mellow.

Please help, as I love Firefox, but this problem can drive one crazy.

Thanks Larry Zdanis

I have scoured the web and read/tried everything. I cannot remove the time and date stamp from my documents. No matter what program/app they are printed from it shows up ruining my printing. I've tried unchecking the header/footer box. There's nothing in my brother printer set up regarding the date/time stamp. It has to be firefox. How do I fix this? I'm not a computer guru so I need details. I'm at my whits end! Thanks!

Windows 11 Pro, Version 10.0.22631 Build 22631 Firefox, 126.0b8 (64-Bit)

Hey,

I use a personal firewall. Every unknown program that attempts to access the network triggers a popup message requesting permission.

Right after the installation, Firefox.exe initiated a message, stating the following path: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe". I granted access.

However, weeks after the installation, the updater.exe asked for permission, stating a very unusual path of itself. The path is "\device\harddiskvolume3\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Maintenance Service\update\updater.exe".

This seems unusual to me, since apps normally use 'C:\' to refer to harddiskdrive0. It is also suspect, since there are only two drives connected and the Disk Management tool (as an admin) indicates, that there are harddiskdrive0 and harddiskdrive1. There are no hard disk drives 2 or 3.

I also wondering about the fact, that the about firefox screen states, that firefox is up to date - even I did not granted access for the updater.exe in the past. There has never been a firwall rule to grant access for the updater.exe - how did it update in the past?

Does anybody have an idea what is happening?

Best regards, André

I tried to log in to my Firefox getting started page which used to just load. It now appears to need a log in which I try to do using my Gmail credentials. The password comes up as being incorrect which I know is not the case. If I try to change it I get as far as a Gmail code being sent to my account but when I enter that it says that is incorrect. I have not been able to load the getting started page since.

Homemade Home Page and Virtual Filing Cabinet

I made a private homepage years ago made up entirely of links to web-based AND local folders and files that are grouped into columns of categories like banking, medical, insurance, budget, etc. I keep it off-line on my desktop. I wrote the code so I could place an external link to a bank for example, next to a local link to the folder on my computer where I download statement pdfs from that bank and other bank files. The web page links displays: MY BANK Chkng/Debit Statements Credit Card Statements Bank Information The top link goes to the bank web page on line while the three lower links open folders on my computer where I save pdfs, txt, images, etc from the bank. Firefox opens the folders as "Index of file:///C:(folder path).

My personal home page is laid out with groupings like this for all sorts of information and associated web links: broker, vendor invoices, medical test, taxes, social security, health insurance, subscriptions etc. Today we get .pdf files with all sorts of information and no help organizing it for easy access. The Firefox browser has become the perfect tool for me. But I learned HTML coding years ago! Not so easy to do for others.

Today, many entities have on-line access that provides downloads like invoices, test results, payments, subscriptions, and much more that replace paper. Creating folders to hold these documents with their own local links on your web/local homepage makes sense to me.

While you can use "File" on Firefox to open a local folder or individual file, you cannot save it as a link. However, you can copy the path and transfer that to an a href=" line of link code in your homepage and build on that method. It's amazing how many types of files can be displayed in a browser that are locally stored. Even a link to a spreadsheet file will open that spreadsheets application. Having a varied list of links with quick access is worth the code-writing time. I wish there was an app to help anyone make their own custom folders and links to the contents in a "my homepage.html" . Is there a product idea in there for you folks?
