How do I get rid of the add-on Google Translator. I downloaded it but would like to get rid of it. There doesn't seem to be anyway to delete it. For some reason it causes my printer to print a page with the symbols that show along the side of the translation screen.

The Reminderfox add-on is in my profile, (Users\AppData|Roaming) but it is not in my add-on or extentions list. I lost it during the day, while I haven't updated anything or closed Firefox. One minute the add-on was there, the next it was gone.

I had Avast Antivirus Safe Browsing, Ad Block Plus, Ad Block Plus Pop Up Addon, Facebook Ad Blocker and Webmail Ad Blocker all installed and working great on a customers laptop, but after they upgraded to Windows 10 all the add ons have disappeared.

I'm making automatic installer for special Firefox extensions. I have read couple of articles about that, but none of the described methods are not helped. What I tried to do:

- Placed .xpi file and unpacked unpacked extension directory in %FF_DIR%\browser\extensions
- Placed .xpi file and unpacked unpacked extension directory in %FF_DIR%\extensions
- Placed unpacked extension directory in another directory and added record in registry (`HKLM\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\extensions`, key is extension id and value is full path to unpacked extension)

In all ways name of unpacked extension directory was:

- Random name
- ID from install.rdf #1 (`{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}` for example)
- ID from install.rdf #2 (`prism@developer.mozilla.org` for example)  

And, as i said, all methods don't give me expectable result. Firefox don't show extensions in list and don't show any notification. How can i solve it? What actual method using in current version of FF? Target browser is Firefox 41, system - Windows 7 x64 Thanks!

I recently updated to FF 42. I have been using the AutoPager Fixed version for a long time and now it has stopped working. Not being a very computer savvy person I don't know how to search for or create rules that Autopager need to work on the site I use it on. generally when installing AutoPager it will ask what mode yo want it to start in. Lite or Normal. Lite has never worked well so I use normal. It will then ask if you want it to search for rules for the site on-line I click yes. Usually if there is a rule it will tell you a rule has been detected for this site and asks if you want AutoPager to use that rule, clicking yes and refreshing the page always does the rick bt now I'm not getting the message that a rule is available or has been detected. I only use AuoPager on one site. it is a game that requires me to scan 499 pages so it is very useful as opposed to using the side arrows. Any help would be very appreciated.

I installed the umatrix add-on, but it doesn't show in the top right with the rest of them. It is clearly installed, and it also shows in the sidebar, but I can not use it properly from there. I would like to know how i put the icon back to the top right corner, so I can access it from there. It has been there before, but it suddenly disappeared. I can't remember doing anything thats related with add-ons around the time it disappeared. so I have no clue what caused this.

Kind regards

Hi,

I'm pretty new to all this, but I decided I'd give themes a go anyway. Most themes I've seen have either had the url bar the same colour as the background, or just a light grey colour with the background an image. I was wondering if I could, say, have the currently selected tab and the url bar red and the other tabs and background grey, or something of a similar sort? This might be plainly obvious and I'm just asking a stupid question, but I've read through some of the articles on themes at developer.mozilla.org as well as looking at the tabs api, in case that had anything, but I still can't see anything that explains anything like what I'm wanting.

I'm hoping this is a thing and not just something I've thought of that isn't available yet. Any help would be appreciated

Before version 63.0 I could load my own custom web page into the bookmark sidebar. This no longer happens.

Is there a way of getting this function back or do I have to revert to an earlier version of Firefox?

I was trying to locate all of my add-ons on https://addons.mozilla.org so I could bookmark them for a backup in case my PC has a figurative meltdown. Some are extremely simple to find but others seem impossible to locate. I even logged into the addons page thinking it would show my installed addons so I could locate them. Well no, it doesn't. Which doesn't make sense. Similarly lacking sense is an advanced search. There doesn't seem to be a way to search by title or author, just by a vague keyword. From what I'm seeing of results, it seems that it either picks one word out of many to search for or boils it down to some other vague term. Even if I type in the exact title it will bring up completely different results along with some that are similar to what I have installed. Author searches don't bring up anything. There has to be a way to locate specific add-ons right? The search seems completely useless as is except to browse. Similarly, why don't installed add-ons link to their page on addons.mozilla.org? So how do I find my addon? This is exactly the reason WHY I want to bookmark them so that I don't have a problem finding them in the future when there's more addons to sift through. Amazing that I can't find it while I have it installed. (The one I'm looking for is Dark YouTube Theme by NiCU Natrapeiu)

I know I can just switch to any number of other similar add-ons but this one works and it infuriates me that I'd have to choose a different one just because the search function is terrible. Keep in mind it is already installed. I want to find the page for it at addons.mozilla.org so that I can reinstall it in the future should I need to do a fresh installation.

This started sometime in early March - maybe after the latest update, but I think it was earlier than that. Ran a full scan with Norton about 3-15-20, restarted, and the problem seemed to be resolved - until today, 3-23-20. It's not happening with Chrome or IE. I'm old and not very computer-savvy (since leaving tech school 20 years ago). Any suggestions? When I Google for a solution, I get suggestions to download free malware software, which I am loath to do. Why won't Norton 360 take care of it and block it from reinstalling when it tries to come in again?

I have Windows 10 at current maintenance and Firefox 75 -at current maintenance. I have no problem with any other website, and the Discover website was fine until Mon Apr. 13. Now it says my accounts cannot be accessed.

Discover support says it is a problem with Firefox Java settings, but I cannot find anything about Java in the options. They had me restart the PC and clear cache and cookies in Firefox, but neither solved the problem.

I can access these accounts successfully with Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge, so it looks like something in Firefox IS the problem. From previous support entries it looks like you have had similar issues in the past, so looks like that problem is back.

How soon can I expect this to be fixed? Firefox is my default browser, and I hate to have to use a different browser for just one website.
