I am set to delete cookies when I close. I have filled in countless times the privacy settings on Google. Every time I load firefox browser up comes "before you continue" Google settings panel. Sometimes I just go by it but whatever I do when I open additional tabs it appears. Now it tries to appear but is blank and the rotating blue circle is the only thing I can get, locked, it stops me from continuing. Any ideas? That still let me clear cookies. Answers appreciated Baz

It displays strange characters on pages including Yahoo mail. The attached screen shot shows a bank email, but it happens with other non-secure stuff too like general web pages. This has been happening with version 81.0 and the previous version. If I open the same page in Chrome, it will display the characters normally. I did see the strange characters appear in Chrome one time, but it happens in FF quite frequently.

It does not matter how many times I change this setting in preferences to "Open in Firefox" I still get this pop-up every time I click a pdf.

It also does not matter how many times I select "open with preview" and click "Do this automatically for files..." box. Every time I click the next pdf the same thing pops up!?!?!?!

And additionally no matter my selection I make ends up leading to a pdf being downloaded automatically.

This is beyond frustrating. Please help.

Hello all, I've yet to test this in great detail. But, it would appear that Firefox is running super slow. It's using about 3GB of ram out of my 16GB (Seems low imho).

When opening websites like Facebook, videos, the message box etc lags. On YouTube videos can lag, and other sites that have elements that popup etc seem to lag.

I only run an AdBlock, and it's even disabled on the pages that lag. These issues aren't present in Google Chrome or Edge. In fact, Facebook is super responsive in Chrome.

I've tried various things to solve it mentioned on this forum, including entering some urls to access more advanced settings which hasn't worked.

Thanks alot.

Reading .swf files after Adobe Flash Player support ends on Mozillla Firefox (NPAPI)

Hello,

When versions 84 and 85 of Mozilla Firefox will be online (late 2020 - early 2021), Adobe Flash Player will no longer be integrated into the browser. The reasons for this removal are quite understandable but I was wondering how I will be able to continue reading Flash (.swf) content when these versions are available to the public. Some old sites that I still use for educational purposes offer to read .swf content and it is not always possible to download these animations to read them on my computer.

So do you think it is possible to continue reading these .swf files on Mozilla Firefox in another way?

Sincerly, Jeremy

After the latest update I gave up on Firefox and switched to Chrome which was already installed on my iMac. I didn't like Chrome and wanted to go back for firefox however it won't open but it thinks it's open somewhere. I also tried putting it in the trash and download a fresh install but the result was saying it won't open now because it's already running. How is that possible? Firefox always has to be forced quit which I did but now I'm more frustrated and confused than before.

So i'm using firefox for a few years now, and i never had this problem before, it started like a week ago or something. I used to stay login/connected (i don't really know the correct word for this) on my google/facebook/.../ account all the time, i mean i check the "remember me" case everytime, so i don't have to reconnect everytime i use facebook or gmail/youtube. Even when the i close firefox and went back 3 days later for example i would stay connected, and i liked that, a lot. But lately, i'm getting disconnected every now and then, and i mean more like everyday when i turn off my computer maybe. So i don't really now if this is the right place to ask but, is firefox deleting my login cookies or something ? Or maybe google and facebook forbid people to stay connected i don't know? How can i stay connected on my accounts? Note: i don't have the "delete cookie on firefox closing" enabled, that's why i don't really understand what's happening

Site works if you disable browser history but break as soon as you enable history. Why only Costco is a mystery. Costco works OK on Chrome an Chromium. Any ideas appreciated

Greetings,

I would like to get straight to the point: I want to keep myself logged in on some sites while mantaining my settings. I want Firefox to delete my browsing history and delete all cookies and other techy stuff (apart from that what is needed in order to keep me logged in on sites like Microsoft or Learn Digital with Google) It is important for me to get my history deleted and to enjoy the feeling of launching a fresh web browser whenever I reopen my Firefox. However, looking for my phone just to log in onto certain services that use two step verification is quite annoying so I want to stay logged in there.

Have a nice day!
