When I have Firefox running on my computer, the Firefox icon in the taskbar will often randomly start flashing and will not stop until I click on it. As if this wasn't annoying enough on its own, when I then switch to the program there isn't even anything that actually needs my attention.

I don't really care why it is doing this, or whether it's Firefox itself or some websites causing this, I would just like to know whether there is a way to stop this behaviour. Neither Chromium nor any other program is doing this and I find it highly annoying. Is there any about:config value that I can change to stop it?

Hello, I've followed Firefox's invitation to install and update the browser on my Mac. Unfortunately the new version is not compatible with OS 10 El Capitan, my operating system, so now I can't use Firefox at all. How I do get the old version back?

Thank you, Lars

Dear Sir/Madam I have recently started purchased an Oculus Quest 2 VR headset. In order to purchase apps and games for my headset I want to use my PC so I can peruse the software available in the Oculus Quest store However when using the Firefox browser I find that when I link to the Oculus store I end up with a constantly rotating wheel and cannot access the apps/gamessection of the store (Now known as METAQUEST) However when I use the MICROSOFT EDGE browser the Oculus website works perfectly This disappointing as I much prefer to use FIREFOX Could you advise if there is a setting within Firefox which may help or could you comment on why Microsoft Edge works but Firefox does'nt Thank you Regards and best wishes Edward

Hi there,

"When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" is happening - even though the box is unchecked. Only in favorites bar, not in web page or Firefox homepage Shortcuts (1 row or 2 rows) or Recent activity.

It's very irritating, so i hope there is a solution...?

How can I get rid of add-on HP Wolf Security Extension. It came with the "regular" HP updates (HP Sure Click included) and it has seriously messed up my PC yesterday, Virus attacks included. Windows 10. HP service not available weekends.

So far I have managed to uninstall HP Sure Click and HP Wolf Security (at least most of these pests) with all regular and special methods (was very difficult as the regular uninstall process did not remove these pests). I have uninstalled various Apps: Chrome, Zoom, Skype, Firefox. cleaned my PC, run windows troubleshooter and maintenance and of course Bitdefender various times. Restarted PC uncountable times and....reinstalled fresh ones and yet:

....Add on HP Wolf is there again in Firefox. It can not be removed with any of the regular methods (have tried them all, see forums and available manuals etc.) ....I have managed to get rid of it in Chrome. One little success story at least. ....HP Sure Click is silent now, even so I expect it to loom around somewhere in my PC. Some files could not be deleted (not even manually with power deinstallation)

I have not yet deinstalled HP Sure or the HP client Security Manager and I do not have the IT skills to work in Bios - directly in the boot sector.

I have not reset windows which I try to avoid - very very very.....last option.

HP Wolf Security and HP Sure Click are real pests. They hooked themselves onto my PC without my permission on Friday evening as part of the regular HP updates. When browsing on the internet I was flooded with ad pop ups and spam AND virus / trojan attacks. It even tried to shut down my virus programme Bitdefender, which I managed to stop and it fortunately worked very well and could contain more damage.

I will call HP tomorrow in their office hours and give them a hard time.

I would greatly appreciate your help and your ideas. Hopefully one of you had the same experience and managed to get rid of this pest.

Thanks in advance for your help and ideas and please dont install these pests!!!

When I click on a link to a PDF in a website, expecting it to open, it does not open. Instead, I am asked to save it to a file on my computer (apparently more or less selected at random). To open it and read it I have to navigate to that file. Not a terrible problem, but bothersome. I imagine I must have inadvertently told Firefox to behave this way.

After that my recommended by pocket disappeared. I opted out of disabling all cookies, but it hasn't reappeared. I checked about:config and the setting for recommendations is true. Please help!

Hello Everyone,

After inserting the proxy information, webpages in the container tab refuse to load/connect, I insert the IP address and I've also tried the Fully qualified domain name, using the type://host:port syntax, I get "The proxy server is refusing connections" and "The connection has timed out" error messages.

If I setup the proxy via the settings menu the entire browser uses the proxy server address, I am trying to specify a different proxy server for each container.

Version: 78.15.0esr (64-bit)

The bookmark dropdown submenus won't open any more. I can click Bookmarks>next random menu>next menu and it won't show the bookmarks. To be clear, I am going to a folder bookmark and then a sub-folder bookmark which won't show what is inside this sub-folder.

Any idea why this is happening?

TIA
