There is one particular website domain that just will not open with Firefox, but will open with Internet Explorer (which I don't want to use).

Just planning ahead here...

I have Firefox 68.9.0esr (the latest esr version). I have Firefox set to “check for updates but let me decide whether to install them.” I have read that a new version of esr based on Firefox 78 will be released on June 30, 2020, but that there will be an approx 3-month overlap period during which one can alternatively choose to use additional 68.xx esr updates.

If I want to take advantage of this overlap period and keep using an up-to-date 68esr as long as possible, how would I do so? After June 30, will I be offered only 78esr versions, or will I be offered the “overlap” 68.xx? If the answer is that I will be offered 78esr as of June 30, how can I obtain the overlap 68 esr updates instead?

Thanks.

Why after a Firefox upgrade can I no longer access my Microsoft 365 account. I get the log in page from my saved Bookmark, I log on , I then inoput the second tier pin code texted to my phone, but the page then stalls and goes no further . It did yesterday, and the only thing that's different is that today I had a Firefox upgrade pushed when I opened up ??

(First off; I have not changed any settings related to history in firefox, nor is firefox configured to delete history, nor am I in private mode) For all purposes, all the history is set to be remembered and saved. (I am also the sole user of this computer)

Started having this problem this last weekend (Around June the 6th 2020) At first I didn't notice but after a while large portions (hours worth) of my history were missing. The problem seems may have gotten worse , more and more seems to vanish. To be specific seemingly randomized pages fail to register in the history.

I have attempted verifying the integrity of places.sqlite (is this even history?) as was mentioned on another similar support report (about history not recording everything) but as soon as I pressed verify the log showed the following -

> Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check places.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

Can I repair my current places.sqlite (Bookmarks / History?) ? Do I have to delete it/other places.sqlite files so firefox can regenerate?

I have a lot of bookmarks, is there such a thing as too many?

Since Firefox 77, the old style URL bar is gone, replaced by something else. There are several solutions around to get most of the old behavior back. One particular thing that I am still missing is curating your frequently visited pages.

Let me explain: I have configured Firefox, so that the URL bar on opening shows my frequent pages (like in old times). Sometimes, I page made its way in there that I didn't like. When going to that entry and pressing delete, I was able to remove it from this list and for it to no longer show up. In Firefox 77 this is no longer possible and now mutliple entries for the same top-level website and some unwanted business entries are clogging up this list.

Any idea how to solve this?

I have a website which has been running fine for over 10 years now. On it I write about Whisk(e)y and for each review I like to add a picture or two. The pictures have all been taken by me, mostly with my Nikon D200 or D300.

Sice the last Firefox upgrade (in the last week) many of my photos have suddenly been turned through 90° on the site. The pictures themselves haven't been changed, just the viewing of them and we're talking about many hundreds of pictures. I don't know what your rules are about posting links but if you want to see the problem my website is non-commercial and called Whisky-Emporium. BTW the problem doesn't exist in Explorer but I don't like using that. Thanks in advance.

When I create a new tab I no longer get a search block in the centre of the page in addition to the one at the top of the screen. How can I restore this feature. It is very useful because you can input a search request without being presented with a menu o search methods and a list of recent searches.

I have both FF 76 and 77. At least with FF76, when I type in the address bar, in the drop-down, identifies the Bookmarks with a star to left of the bookmark so I know it's a bookmark at a glance, but still does not show any identification for History items. But in FF 77, there is NO star identifying Bookmark items and nothing for history items. Why aren't there any symbols identifying or categorizing the address bar drop-down items? I can't tell if it's Bookmarks or History or Open tabs. Thanks.

Unless I knowingly have a setting enabled to prevent these symbols.

When I launch Firefox, it waits for a couple seconds (just enough time for me to start typing in a Google search string). Then, after I have finished typing in the string, I look up from the keyboard, to see that the Firefox screen had flashed, and all of my typing has been lost because the browser effectively re-started.

This is quite frustrating, although I have come to realize what is happening, so I just wait for several seconds until after the screen flash happens, so I can start using the browser for real. This behaviour is quite annoying.

I saw a (closed) forum message about this problem that suggested (a) turning off hardware acceleration, and/or (b) turning off your extensions (and re-starting Firefox), to try and find which extension might be causing the flash to occur.

So I tried those suggestions. Turning off hardware acceleration had no effect, but I did find that an extension called "IBM Security Rapport" was the one causing the screen-flash problem. This is an important extension that my bank (Bank of Montreal / Canada), uses to protect their clients safety when they are doing online banking. I do not want to turn it off. If I did turn it off and I end up having some sort of hacker issue, the bank could refuse to help me recover any funds that I might have lost, because I disabled one of their main security systems.

I am writing this memo, just because that other forum conversation that I referred to, asked that users let them know which addons they might find which caused the Firedfox screen-flash problem.

Thanks. GW
