Suddenly, Firefox won't load Google Calendar. I see the template, but the items on the calendar won't load. I know it's not the calendar itself because it loads fine in Chrome and on all my android devices. I made sure all the add-ons were taken off. I refreshed. I cleared the cache. Erased history. Nothing worked.

I finally gave up, backed up all my bookmarks, and deleted Firefox. I downloaded it fresh and installed it again. Same problem! The calendar won't load. I found others complaining, but no one had a solution.

Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but a friend told me this was part of a "browser war" and Firefox would no longer support a variety of sites and apps. Is that true? Or do you have a solution.

Subject line says it all. I am discovering that FF 84.02 just leaves a blank spot where the Flash SWF used to be, making pages super confusing to view if they used to have a SWF on them because you frequently don't even know what the page was supposed to do.

Is there any way to get some sort of placeholder graphic like IE has? Or if not, are there plans to implement one?

Hard to explain why I am asking here, but here goes:

I am a reseller and use different sources. One of our vendor's websites is showing me retail pricing after I login. Our special prices used to (and are supposed) be visible. If you don't log in, no prices are visible. My sales rep asked IT, who said to clear cache and cookies. And again today, he said it is on my end, not theirs.

Of course, that doesn't solve the problem. Do not even know where to begin.

Hello, evereone!

My win-application (1)compose an local-html-template, (2)call to open it with a Firefox as a "text editor" for some changes and getting final local-html-documents and (3)needs to save changed local-html-document automatically under application control.

Like model works good with any text-editor like notepad, OpenOffice etc. The application retains control of the text-editor until the text-editor closes (with or without saving document).

However, in the case of the Firefox, the application loses control of the Firefox as soon as the page is opened. And the application does not have information about the shutdown of the Firefox.

The question is: Is there an Firefox-option that allows you to keep control of the application over the Firefox during open Firefox or tab-session?

Thank you so much for any hint, Denis Lopatin

When using my computer today Firefox began not working, I would open it though clicking or running as admin, and it would open then Immediately crash, I've attempted to delete the profile files to force it to create a new one, I've attempted to use backups to see if it would fix, I've refreshed my Firefox account using another pc logged into my account in Firefox. Ive attempted to use the "firefox.exe -P" command to force the profile to open but that instantly closes like the browser, and at this point im out of ideas on what it could be. Any suggestions or solutions?

About 25% of the time when I click on a link in YouTube or other places, or open in a new tab, the new tab appears but there is no "hourglass" to say it is processing. If I close the tab and do it again it works and there is an hourglass and then it completes. I think it started with 84.01 but got better on 84.0.2 but still happens maybe 10% of the time. Thanks

All was good until sometime today. FF 84.0.2 W10 up to date. Previously, when browsing FB marketplace, i could send a message about an item for sale. That send message button is now greyed out. The messenger button on the top right of my screen used to open a dropdown/popup that gave me a summary of my messages. That no longer works. I have been thru all kinds of settings randomly on FF and FB to try and correct the issue but i cannot figure out what is going on. I have tried turning Ublock on and off but that has not helped either. The only access i now have to messenger is to open it separately. I have not changed any FB settings. I did not change any FF settings myself other than trying to find out what could be doing this and exploring ublock for possibilities as that seemed the most likely culprit. Can anyone shed some light on what the issue is.

When I select a text on a webpage and right click, there are some options including add-on related ones (e.g. translate this text).

This question has been around for years... Isn't anyone else annoyed by having to clean up UNPINNED Top Sites one at a time? I posted over four months ago about trying to find out where Top Sites stores those unpinned sites... no one seems to know, except to say they are placed there by Firefox internally. I presume that means it is hidden in the code somewhere. Someone on the development team must know where? Maybe if there was a poll of users about this annoyance?? I wish I was younger to be able to get back into coding... my old brain just isn't up to it... ________________________________________________________________ You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make 'em think...

OS: Windows 10 (Japanese) (updated) Firefox version 84.02 (64-bit) (updated) Drivers (updated)

I got an email from a reputed PDF OCR software and scanner company as usual for winter sale. I decided to buy the software and click the BUY link in the email. On the website I entered required information and when clicked the process button unexpectedly on the next page I was supposed to fill in my Credit card password which was strange and I left the website before leaving did left the chat message "why do you need password".

After a while I checked the Firefox browser's history and surprisingly there wasn't any history of that website. So, question is when I was not using Private browsing then why there wasn't web history? Do you think it is technically possible?

Any guidance will be appreciated. Thank you.

We all have done it, said ok to taking a survey, right? Well this is bull. No site survey should be able to in bed itself in a startup session, ever. So, how do we go in and remove just that one site who has taken control of my startup. Closing it should be the end of it but no. These are not adware, reset is not the answer, too much work to do a reset. We should have a list of sites that are in the session restore so we can remove some misbehaving ones.

I usually watch YouTube video's at 1.25x speed, and I noticed recently that it seem to make some audio distorted. So far I've only noticed it on lower notes, but it causes to sound a bit distorted and warbled.

I noticed it on this video: https://youtu.be/IubSudelVmw?t=429 at the tagged time, and also on a channel called The 8-bit Guy on his intro theme. https://youtu.be/d3NIe1jTZMc

Again, this is all at 1.25x speed (or faster), and this only seems to happen in firefox. I made sure to check and see if it was my speakers, which it isn't because I can also hear the distortion through headphones.

I'm not sure there's much to be done to correct the issue, but I thought I'd post about this in hopes it might get checked in a future update.

There is a new option to display the Bookmarks toolbar only on new tabs. When I enable this (Right click toolbar -> Bookmarks Toolbar -> Only on new tab), the bookmarks toolbar does not display at all. It only displays when I select Always, which was regular default behavior for enabling the bookmarks toolbar. I am on the latest version of Firefox, version 84.0.2, on the Windows 10 platform.

I shared my troubleshooting data in the option below, but I do not know if this contains information on my setup with the extensions I use. Please let me know if there is a way to show this.

FYI, running Windows 7 and Microsoft Office (including Outlook) 2007. (Yes, I know I should upgrade, but some of the other programs I use will not work on Windows 8 or 10, and I don't want to spend a couple thousand dollars to get newer versions.) With that in mind, every now and then I get an email message in Outlook with a hyperlink that I cannot open. This does not happen on all messages, just some of them. I can put the cursor over the item, and the hyperlink address shows up, but I cannot open it, select it, copy it, or anything else. Sometimes I can tell the message to "open in browser" (which unfortunately opens it in IE), but then I can click on the item, and either (1) tell it to open in a new tab in IE, or (2) select "Properties", copy the address in the Properties window, and then paste the address into Firefox. (A lot of effort just to open a hyperlink, yes?) Any suggestions? Thanks.
