No more images on certain sites after upgrading to Firefox 79Since the upgrade to Firefox 79, the sites www.2dehands.be and www.markplaats.nl no longer display images with the articles. Is so in the dutch, english, german and french version (so separate installations with different user profiles) and I hear that complaint from multiple users of Firefox (so not only on my computers). Use Vivaldi now for those sites, because it shows the images. Attached a print screen of a Firefox 79 and the same page in Vivaldi so you can see it.

I have tried both Google and Microsoft Auth.apps for 2FA. Both recognize the QR-code and creates a generator for FIrefox. However, from none oft the both the code is accepted by Firefox (se attached pic). "Ogiltig tvåstegsautentiseringskod" [=Invalid authorizatin code -isch?] shows when I use Google or Microsoft Authenticator. I have synched the time in Google app, but no differens. I have made all restarts etc. No luck. Any help out there?

Firefox fails to open up a PayPal "popup" window-let when trying to make a purchase from Steam

Hi Forum Folke,

Trying to make a purchase from Steam; click, click, click, get to the payment page, where I select "PayPal" as the method of payment. Get another screen that confirms proceed with PayPal; I click on "OK," and nothing happens. What's *supposed* to happen is a little popup window should open up with the PayPal login, I log in, wade through the selections, and make the payment. What *actually* happens is nothing at all. Click on "OK," and there's this "blink" and that's it. No other change to the page I'm looking at, no PayPal, no nothing... and if I persist in trying, Steam gets all uppity and tells me I've been trying to make too many purchases, try again later. Chrome handles the above scenario without any problem whatever, so the problem is not with Steam, it's with FireFox. Where should I be looking or what should I be looking for that might be preventing FireFox from doing what it should be doing? Thanks... I'm not sure what system info you need to diagnose this issue; if you'll let me know I'll be happy to dig it up and provide it.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I can rule out my anti-virus, as again, it lets Chrome do it without problem... just not Firefox. For what that's worth....

Adding One-Click Search from sites without OpenSearch

Ages ago, with the separate search bar enabled, Firefox would allow the addition of any "searchable" site to the dropdown options for a search. This option is still available on specific sites, shown by adding a green + to the search icon (see Capture3.png).

At some point, this addition was "overridden" so that this option was available only to specific sites that have enabled the OpenSearch description within a separate xml file (from my best understanding from my best understanding). I'm sure that there is a security reason for this, but given that there are many sites available that don't have this option for whatever reason, including Wolfram Alpha and Dogpile, I used to be able to still add these sites as one-click searches and I would still like to do so.

If the "Add X"/green + is not available, the only option to add new search engines these days appears to be through the "Find more search engines" link under Options which sends the user to Add-Ons site specifically to search for an applicable add-on.

It doesn't seem like I should have to include an entire Add-on to switch search engines, especially since search engines I'd had from previous Firefox versions seem to have carried over just fine. For example, Thesaurus.com and Wolfram Alpha can't be added on my newer, fresh Firefox installations on other PCs, but I've got Thesaurus.com available from my long-standing profile (Capture4.png).

I've found a method to edit the search.json.mozlz4 file and manually add searches, there must be an easier way to accomplish something that seems relatively simple, and do so without a new add-on.

Does MS Update (Edge) (KB45569309) Pour mollasses over FF ??

I have a brand spanking new system with Win 10 installed on SSD. I've been using it for about a month and it works great. MS updated edge over night (SURPRISE) and now Firefox has been slowed down considerably. For example. Facebook loads OK, but as I scroll down, the "Like", "Read More" , "Comment" links don't work for a bit. On this site trying to bring focus on this text area is laggy. Not like before update.

They seem to show up after a while, but it seems like every site is somehow s-lo-w-e-d since this 'update'. I re booted and also ran the 'quick fix" option but stuff is still slow.

Of course the update can NOT be rolled back. Do y'all imagine this is intentional or just my imagination?

Please understand my query. I removed the Firefox completely out of my computer, went into Regedit.exe (Please don't go in it unless you have used it frequently and know the consequences) and removed it as through as possible, when I get done there was nothing left in the computer of Firefox not even a single file or a string. Then I installed again and every website works fine, but if I log into my Firefox account only after that everything disappears, then if I open a new private window everything works fine again It seems to me the problem is my account in Firefox server. But I do not have access to it. I have it on two of my cell phone and 2 other computers but this is the newer one I use the most and only on this one I have problems I am signed in all my devices and they all work fine, I already checked the computer with different Antivirus programs and have also change my router

Recently, in a Google group I participate in, I stopped being able to reply to the original poster. (I can still reply to the whole group.) I couldn't find any setting within Groups that applied to the issue. One Google search result said it was an issue with Chrome browser "mailto" settings. I am not able to find anything analogous to that in Firefox. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? It looks like my Firefox version is 79.0. Thanks.
