I have a VMware VM used as a desktop by a team and they've reported that Firefox only shows a blank screen. It doesn't respond to anything, if I click the burger and click options then it doesn't even open a new tab. And I can't even access about:config.

However I've discovered that if I access the desktop via the VMware console then FF works perfectly fine, if I RDP onto the desktop and run FF I get the behavior as I've described.

Even weirder...is if I launch the browser in an RDP session and then seize the session via the VMware console then the behavior stays there until I relaunch it.

And vice versa if I launch the browser in the vmware console and then log in via RDP the browser works perfectly fine until I relaunch it!

What could be causing this?!

I've tried: Disabling hardware acceleration Cleanly uninstalling Reinstalling both the latest version and latest ESR Removing my profile All resulted in in the same blank FF.

No other VM running FF is experiencing this issue, and I'm the only one with rights to modify things.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

I want to import my mobile Safari bookmarks into Firefox on my desktop. I have read many articles on here but none of them have helped. I had hopes for this one(https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285031) but it was unclear whether the user was on a Mac or PC.

I have already installed iCloud for Windows and the iCloud Bookmarks add-on in Firefox. I have supposedly performed the sync operation already, but nothing seems to have transferred. I have neither the Safari bookmarks in Firefox, nor the Firefox bookmarks in Safari(which I do not want or care about as Safari will be deleted when I am done with all this) I don't see any options to adjust any kind of settings in either program.

I very much would like to get this iCloud thing to work. If that continues to be unsuccessful, is it possible to create an HTML file from the mobile Safari bookmarks and import THAT into Firefox?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have my favorite applications set as defaults in the autoplay extensions options. I have "do this every time" checked in the dialog box that pops up every time I try to open a file. It doesn't matter what the file extension is. PDF, MP4, and JPG files don't automatically open.

I posted a similar question before when I thought this only applied to MP4 files. Since then, I've noticed it applies to all files.

I would really appreciate some help getting this to work again. Jim Birke

I am running an iMAC 27 using mac OS X Catalina (10.15.7) When I select Print from the Hamburger drop-down (or by any other method -- I prefer MD + P) I get the familiar printer box but there seems to be NO WAY to see the thumbnail of the page or pages to be printed. For me this is votal because I often print selected pages from a large document or web view.

I am attaching a screen shot of what I get with FIREFOX.

Is this a systemic fault with Firefox or am I just in the dark?

Hi,

When I visit https://messages.google.com/web/authentication with Firefox's history setting set to "never remember history", a blank white screen loads. The following custom settings allow for the site to function as expected: Always use private browsing mode unchecked Remember browsing and download history unchecked Remember search and form history unchecked Clear history when Firefox closes checked with all of the settings for this option as checked

However, when the following Firefox history setting is changed the site becomes nonfunctional: Always use private browsing mode checked

I am a security conscious user who would prefer to have Firefox never remember my history at all times. I want to be able to use the Firefox Desktop browser to utilize Messages by Google's web client. I followed all of the instructions from a similar post on the Firefox forums, https://support.mozilla.org/gl/questions/1257862 , and I isolated the history setting as the source of error to my problem. It would be helpful to all parties (Firefox users, Google Messages, and Mozilla Firefox) if we determine that this is a Google Messages' web client issue or a Firefox Browser issue.

I have to continue to use Firefox 52.0.2 (FF52)because of a discontinued form filler plug-in (Autofill Forms). FF 52 has been working fine until I moved to Big Sur. Upon launching FF52 under Big Sur, the sidebar and some toobar icon drop-menu's text has disappeared. If I boot back into Catalina, this missing text is visible (Please see attached screenshots). I was hoping someone could tell me how to make this text visible again under Big Sur. Thanks in advance for assistance.

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) Windows Home 10 20H2

I have about 700+ bookmarks, which I like to access from the Bookmarks sidebar. There are of course even more items in my browsing history. My issue is, that Firefox reacts rather "extremely" to scrolling on the touchpad. Even when I two-finger-drag "very very slowly", multiple items just "fly by" at bewildering speed. It's impossible for me to perform a precise scroll action.

It not only affects the sidebars that but also the "Library" window (both left and right lists). Strangely, the actual webpages scroll normally. Text area fields on web forms with many lines of text also scroll precisely.

In about:config, all scroll- and mouse-wheel-related settings are set to default values. I also tried with a completely new profile (after importing the bookmarks). That also didn't help.

Servus mitanand, am Freitag hat die IT-Abteilung in unserem Unternehmen das letzte Update von Windoof ausgeroll, seither erhalte ich weder einen Ton, wenn ich in FF UTube-Inhalte abspiele, noch spielt FF Dateien ab, die auf einer Webseite in einem Player eingebettet sind (Fehelermeldung, dass der Inhalt nicht abgespielt werden kann). Ich würde diesen Affen von MaxiSchrott gern endlich einmal mit dem Rohrstock eins auf die Finger geben, denn bei jedem Update darf ich meine wertvolle Lebenszeit auf irgendeinen Bugfix verschwenden, der mich nicht die Bohne interessiert. Ich komme aus einer Zeit, da galt der Spruch "Never change a runnig system" und so halte ich das auch heute noch, es sei denn, ich werde von höheren Instanzen dazu gezwungen. Ich will, dass diese Scheißkisten laufen, ohne dass ich ständig was dran schrauben muss. Da waren die Autos mit den alten Vergasern noch weniger anfällig. Hat jemand eine Idee, wie ich dieses Problem (kein Ton, kein Abspielen von Player-Inhalten) beheben kann? Neuester FF ist schon installiert, Rechner auch schon xmal neu gestartet, alle möglichen Audio-Einstellungen schon übverprüft - daran liegt es also nicht. Das ist der Grund, weshalb ich mich dagegen wehre, immer mehr meiner Intelligent und Verantwort an diese Scheißkisten abzugeben. Sie machen dumm, verantwortungs- und hilflos.

Hi all, on Friday the IT department in our company rolled out the latest update of Windoof, since then I get neither a sound when I play UTube content in FF, nor does FF play files that are embedded in a player on a website (Fehelermeldung that the content can not be played). I would love to finally give these monkeys from MaxiSchrott one on the fingers with the cane, because with every update I get to waste my precious lifetime on some bug fix that I don't give a damn about. I come from a time when the saying "Never change a runnig system" was true and that's how I still hold it today, unless I'm forced to by higher authorities. I want these crap boxes to run without me having to constantly screw something to them. That's when the cars with the old carburetors were even less prone to failure. Does anyone have an idea how I can fix this problem (no sound, no player content playing)? I already installed the newest FF, restarted the computer several times, checked all possible audio settings - so that's not the problem. That's the reason why I'm resisting to give more and more of my intelligence and responsibility to these crap boxes. They make you stupid, irresponsible and helpless. This is a automated translation because I have not enough time to write it twice and, of course, all English speaking providers meanmwhile use machine translated text to "support" us, which is horroble to understand.

Hi, I would like to know how I can change the screen from portrait mode to landscape mode on a laptop. I assume this is done in the browser? There is an answer to this question from 2014, but that answer does not work anymore (I tried it). All the other answers seem to be for mobile devices. I would like to fit a certain amount of text from a website on one page. This is difficult in portrait mode. I am forced to zoom out to 50%, and it is then difficult to read the text. This is because I need to fit all the text on one page, for a screenshot. Please note that I don't want to switch permanently to landscape. I just want landscape for one website. So it should preferably be easy to switch back and forth between portrait and landscape. I have looked for this setting in my computer, and I can't find it. Sorry if this is a dumb question. But I have been unable to find the answer myself.
