I have been using Mozilla Firefox browser since 2008 but today I came to know that mozilla does not care about its user. Recently, adware attack on my PC which automatically install plugin in Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer

Plugin name CutThePrice which keep generating advertise while surfing. Thank God I found Adware removal tool which is developed by https://toolslib.net/

After scanning a report has been generated this tool has remove CutThePrice plugin from my Firefox and everything is working fine.

I have complain with Mozilla for Firefox browser how could you allow unwanted plugin to automatically get installed on the browser. I don't care about Chrome and Internet Explorer as they are most vulnerable browser crash always whenever I play youtube video or play flash online game. But, I have trust on Firefox since firefox does not consume that much RAM as google update in the background keep using PC memory and this security concern is the biggest drawback for using FireFox


It is the responsibility of developer of Firefox browser to don't allow plugin automatically get install if the plugin does not have publishing certificate or plugin unauthorized.

Please fix it so that at least people could save their life !

I work for a company with over 5oo computers all working in Firefox. Firefox wants to update all of the time, or at least it asks if we’d like to update. However we need our version of Firefox to not update on its own, and furthermore we need the pop-ups to quit asking if we want to update. I know that I can go into the settings on my browser and select “Never check for updates”, which I’m assuming would prevent the automatic updates and the pop-up asking me if I want to update. What I need to know is is there a way I can login to all 500+ computers all remotely, all at once, and preferably through a server, in order to change the setting in all browsers? I should mention that only four employees have administrator login privileges to change settings and run programs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I received a message stating that " Total Browser Security could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled." Total Browser Security is made by Mozilla which makes Firefox!!! So Why in the heck could it NOT BE VERIFIED for use in FIREFOX?

So I would like to Delete it/Remove it from my list of "Extensions". however I have tried to remove it following all of the suggested methods, but have been unsuccessful. Is there a way to actually remove it?

Also, would the Total Browser Security disabled keep causing the Adobe Flash Plug-in to crash, and cause all of my web browsers to freeze and crash and then cause my computer to freeze? Or could that just be due to my computer being 9 years old?

I plan on building a new computer either later this year or early next year, whenever I get the money. I am trying to make this computer last.

Mozilla, it's bad enough you cowed to the DRM people. Let's not cower to the webRTC folks too. Please make the default for Hello to be disabled, or at least honor the about:config settings of previous installations.

So I have a few machines that are setup to Sync with each other. I got a new laptop and am using my old one as a Test machine. I added the new one to my Sync setup which worked great. I then uninstalled all the add-ons from the old laptop but forgot to Disconnect it from Sync first. Now it removed all my add-ons from all my Firefoxes. Is there any way to undo that so I don't have to go try to remember what add-ons I had and go find them all again?

asm.js 10* slowdown since firefox 45

Hello, I'm developping a math application compiled from c++ to javscript with emscripten 1.34.1 http://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/~parisse/xcasen.html (source http://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/~parisse/giac/emgiac.tgz) Under Firefox 45, performances are good, for example on my Mac, factoring a 128 bit integer takes 1/10 of second http://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/%7eparisse/xcasen.html#+time(ifactor(2**128+1))& But with newer Firefox releases, the speed as decreased, by a factor of 10 with Firefox 48, now it takes one second for the same computation. The Firefox desktop version is now significantly slower than the native version and the mobile version becomes really too slow. Is there some explanation and workaround other than telling my users to downgrade to Firefox 45? Thanks.

Hi, I need to style a webpage http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/staff/grabows1/accessible/math111/doth4.S3.html to suit wishes of a particular visually impaired student.

You can see the style sheet has body * {

   font-family: 'Century Gothic', CenturyGothic, AppleGothic, sans-serif !important;
   font-size: 36pt !important ;
   font-weight: bold !important;

}

However, most mathml notation (but curiously not all of it) is not bold, and perhaps more importantly it is not sans-serif. How can I force everything to be sans-serif bold?
