Hi,

I'm getting bored with firefox...

Spent 2 hours trying to find on internet or compare the about:config of my laptop/desktop to try to see what the problem.


on desktop on some website: when i click on a link, lets say an ssd deal for instance, i cannot reach the page and a small notification appears on right bottom corner (not below bookmarks like a popup) saying : "redirection canceled" and bring me back to the original page. on laptop same version of firefox (and same general settings) but no such problem, i started to compare each value in about:config but i stoped before becoming crazier.

whatever option i disable (website tracking) its still there, if i open in new private tab, the same.

So bored of spending so much time on some stupid option it seem i cannot have control over it, as i'm sure its just a simple value i have to change somewhere but cant find the info.

So please, if i was clear enough it my description, tell wich command i should change to get rid of it. Alternatively: is there a way to copy the config from one firefox to another? (like this i might copy config from laptop to desktop.

thx in advance for your eventual help

Firefox v69.0 Whenever I click on one of the matches returned from a search, or click on an embedded link, Firefox forever highlights that selection even though I don't want to be reminded months later that I had looked at that site. This is irksome because I can't ever get a clean slate for doing searches. Every similar search will yield a page full of highlighted links I may have used in the past on a topic that is only tangentially related. Also, since this highlighting persists independently of clearing history it entails a severe privacy leak. If anybody who is authorized to use my machine suspects that I may have an interest in, say, pizza dough, they need only do a search for pizza dough on my machine and any link I had ever selected in the past is highlighted, from which links it can be easily determined that I have both an interest in the topic at large and what aspect of the topic in particular appeals to me.

How do I disable this "feature", please?

I have three browsers on my Dell Latitude E 6320 Windows 10 operating system namely Edge, Firefox and Google Chrome. Firefox is my favorite browser among the three which has been working normally untill a fews ago I decided to make Firefox as my default browser.

Of recent when I click on the Firefox Icon to surf the internet, a small window appears making reference to drive C:\windows\system32\......... with something like .dll at the end of the path and some statements which disappear before I can completely read the contents of the small window. As the small window disappears, Firefox launches up and remained launched with nothing else happening. Even when I type Firefox address in the address bar and press the enter key, nothing happens. The text message "Hand shake" with any site address typed into the address bar that is usually displayed at the lower left handside of Firefox page before the required website is connected and displayed, is no longer been displayed. I have uninstalled the 79 version and reinstalled the same version which I have just downloaded for resolving the problem, thinking that the uninstalled one has been corrupted, but the problem still remains.

This is the problem I am experiencing with Firefox browser presently hence I am asking for assistance of how to solve this problem from the community.

Thank you and for looking forward to your response.

I am having problems while trying to watch YouTube with the Firefox browser. I keep getting as yellow bar at the top of the page when trying to do anything on YouTube. A screenshot of the error is attached. I've asked Mozilla about this before, and I am also trying to get a fix from Dashlane. It concerns the message "a script in the extension Dashlane is causing Firefox to slow down" then it shows Learn more. When I open that if the warning stays long enough to click on it. It recommends changing dom.max_script_run_time. It shows it is set at 10, and will not allow any change as suggested. Then it suggests adding JavaScript toggle on and off. That does not help either. I would thank anybody between Mozilla and Dashlane that can provide a reason for this continued error message and how to fix it. This has been going on for months.

I have a whole slew of tabs I use daily and Firefox is set to reload them whenever I restart Firefox. Now with version 78 it tells me it has to reinstall and won't keep my tabs, in other words I have to waste time setting all 200 of them up again. Several times a day it nags me to update and there is no option to tell it to Shut Up. If Firefox can't be bothered to provide smoother upgrades, I can't be bothered to upgrade.

I want to enable two-factor authentication for my Firefox account. I did the standard steps at accounts.firefox.com. Everything seems to work except that the codes generated by Google Authenticator aren't accepted by accounts.firefox.com. I then tried Microsoft authenticator, with the same result. Then Authy, again same result.

Here are my steps. > Google Authenticator already installed on phone. It works with my Google account. > I used Mozilla Firefox to log-in at accounts.firefox.com on my laptop Steps at firefox.com: log-in > Click to enable two-step authentication > Click Add account on Google authenticator (on my phone) > Scan the QR code showing on laptop screen > Google Authenticator adds the account and displays a 6-digit code > Enter the code at accounts.firefox.com

Everything works except the last step. Accounts.firefox.com rejects the code every time. Same for every other authenticator app I tried.
