Using Firefox for webmail, There used to be an option to spellcheck a "Composed" message before sending it. Probably after a recent "upgrade", that option seems to have disappeared. True? Can I get the facility back in some way?

Hello! A year or two ago I ran into a problem. While Firefox is checking for an update, it does not load any sites. I have to wait about 5 minutes each time before I can start using the browser. It is incredibly annoying. Has anyone encountered this kind of problem?

Dear People --- FIRST: I apologize for taking so ling. I had physical probs, that kept me from coming back. SECOND: I'm afraid that I can't solve this problem with the advice provided. There was a file mentioned [which slips my mind, and I can't look for it with out leaving this screen] that is supposed to be on my desk top. I couldn't find it, so things stopped there.

SO..... I'm reiterating my problem: I loaded an "update" to Firefox that was supposed to get around the obnoxious "THIS BROWSER IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED" message I'd get on certain web-sites [such as the Milwaukee Journal]. I never understood that, as I am careful to update programs, when the updates are available. SO: While I was on the Milwaukee Journal Site, I clicked on the "Firefox Update" that the Journal's site recommended. What happened was I got the Current Version, and LOST all of my add-ons. After problems I can't go into here, "The Cat's Back." Please advise whether I can get things back after this much time.

N.B.: I'm running Windows 10.

THANKX! C M The Gray Cat

I'm hoping to get some help with disabling the Insecure connection password warning in Firefox version 115.11.0.

In previous versions, I could disable this warning through the about:config settings. However, I couldn't find the specific setting (security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled) that was mentioned in some online resources.

I understand the security risks involved in disabling these warnings, and I only intend to do this on a trusted website on my local network.

Could you please advise on the best approach for achieving this in Firefox 115.11.0, or any alternative solutions to manage insecure connection warnings for trusted local sites?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I cannot begin to express how frustrating this change is... and I struggle to comprehend why anyone would introduce this by writing it into software, but I'm sure it has something to do with money and profits.

There was a time when you could do a search and get a list of results, and then view a specific listing, and then return to your search page and view another listing. however, those days are evidently gone, as now when you return to your search page, it's slightly different results in a different order. Most are there, but some are missing entirely, and the ones that remain are varied slightly. Whaaaat for!? It is truly a form of torture.

Now in fairness I can't tell if it's the browser (Firefox), or the search engine (Duck Duck Go), because I am unfortunately not a developer. However, whatever is causing it should be fixed out of a sense of social responsibility to the greater good.

If anyone knows why this happens and knows how to fix it, I would be sincerely grateful if you shared the solution.

In numerous cases i have found not to be beneficial when website's search function is activated on Ctrl+F keyboard shortcut and where is better to use regular Firefox on-page search instead. I think that the good site has search button/area visible so i can use it when needed.

So please how to disable Firefox's search (Ctrl + F keyboard shortcut) to activate website's internal search? I want to always use regular Firefox on-page search that i now trigger by left Alt (to show the FF menu), click Edit menu, click Find in page.... (since Ctrl+F is occupied by website's internal search).

hi, some websites lately have password inputs set as "text" in the html and that confuses firefox into NOT suggesting saved login/password for those fields.

i inspected the password field in question and this is the correspondent html:

​<input autocomplete="off" id="PasswordInput_68.39270255653231" class="ant-input false" placeholder="Password" maxlength="32" pxunit="14" buttonwidth="100" timeformat="YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss" store="[object Object]" langlocale="[object Object]" type="text" value="">

btw, if i change the type to "password" it DOES suggest the saved login/password.

PS : the website in question is a login page for a dahua XVR.

I'm still using windows professional 7, it works for the most part. Unfortunately often the browser won't load or it will load and runs very slowly, then it shows a box saying close previous firefox. When it is running slowly I often have to hit the browser many times until the box shows up saying close previous firefox. Is this something to do with windows 7 or another completely different issue.

I get the following message when going online with Firefox: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I've followed all the prompts to restart the computer, refresh the computer, delete the favicons.sqlite and places.sqlite and it won't allow me to delete them. This happened yesterday as well. Yesterday I could delete those files and everything was restored. But today I can't get it to work.
