The website I use for work I need to sign in and out repeatedly in a day as different users. This new notice is in the way of the boxes and a major pain to deal with all day long. It would be wonderful if there was a way to turn it off on websites that do not require this level of security information.

I have been playing videos with no problem using FF since the last time I had to update Adobe Flash player (which always shows up in a blank Download Manager). Anyway I tried Refreshing FF and it came up as 32 bit version (not sure if it had been 64 bit before or not) but still didn't work. Checked Silverlight and it is up to date and so is Adobe Flash Player so updated to 64 bit FF but still having trouble with some of the videos. I especially use the service provider at https://www.wwgoa.com but I can no longer play their videos. Youtube videos and these 2 content providers work: http://elitedaily.com/video/ and here http://www.sportsnet.ca/videos/but other sites do not always work.

But this example at https://www.wwgoa.com/video/strength-of-glue-joints-000330/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=A6134&vsoid=A6134 Or any of the next 4 content providers do NOT: http://allthingsd.com/20070301/web-videos/ http://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/news/101-videos/mars-101-1?source=searchvideo https://www.grammy.com/videos http://fortune.com/video/ I hope someone can help soon as the one content provider charges. Thanks Barry

Closing as a duplicate of /questions/1159272 -J99

A while ago I upgraded my Mac to OS X 10.10.5.. Two weeks ago I also switched to using the system’s transparency option for menus en windows. In Firefox I suddenly noticed a few things (see also the attached images below):

When Transparency is turned ON:

1. The rendering of type in the FF toolbar pull down menus is noticeably more bold than in the menus from the system bar.

2. Bookmark images in the FF toolbar menus are much darker then those in the system bar menus (in a mouseover they become lighter again).

When Transparency is turned OFF:

Same differences, although less outspoken. But no difference in passive state and mouseover.

Besides that the effect is ugly and unattractive, the type becomes less readable (cluttered and unsharp), especially on dark backgrounds.

Safari and Chrome don't have this problem.

It should be noted that I still use a Cinema HD screen, not a retina screen.

Question: Is this intended behaviour or an issue that should be reported? Is there some setting in FF that can correct this?

I downloaded the Firefox 32bit linux install with https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-53.0-SSL&os=linux&lang=en-US. I unpacked it and ran it on my 32bit Debian v8.7 machine. I get an error "cannot execute binary file: Exec format error". This error generally is a result of running a 64bit app on a 32bit OS.

Since the last version of Firefox was updated (I believe 52.2) I have not been able to use Firefox for programs within the University of Mississippi (mostly to process forms through myOleMiss (https://my.olemiss.edu/irj/portal?NavigationTarget=navurl://3767964649b58f6ecb2a41a28c11fe3b). I have also tried making purchase through various retail sites and cannot access a secure site, both for ordering and checkout. I have been forced to use Google Chrome. Everyone has said that when Firefox updates again, all the problems will be fixed, but I just updated to version 53.0 and the problems still exist - so I continue to use Google Chrome for shopping and performing my job tasks. Ugh!

For several weeks now, Firefox keeps starting up with same set of tabs despite I configured it (via Tab Mix Plus extension) to select last quit's set. I have re-configured many times, reinstalled Firefox and performed refreshment and nothing works. Once, it worked for a couple of starts, but eventually same set of taps came back

Dated tabs (with local files) being restored when launching Firefox

I have two local html files that were opened together in separate tabs several days ago, which are now being restored with every launching of Firefox.

Firefox is launched with three tabs: (1) homepage; (2) a local html file and (3) the source code of the file.

I had opened the local html file and then opened view the source code. These are the two files that are opened on launch, along with the homepage.

I followed a forum answer of a similar sounding issue which detailed the possible corruption of sessionstore file(s).

A resolution based on deleting of all sessionstore* files and the sessionstore-backups folder. Though this proposed solution did not resolve my issue.

btw: prior to seeing the issue, I experienced a crash and was reminded of making the changes to browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand and browser.sessionstore.restore_from_crash to prevent post-crash restores.

The values were changed to False and then back to True, with the two tabs still being opened when Firefox is launched.

Also, I have tried changing the preferences around remembering and clearing history with no luck.

I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox with no luck. Though maybe this should be tried in a way that I'm not automatically signed on with my gmail account.

I want to use Firefox primarily for the developer tools, but this issue must be resolved for me to continue to use the product.

The application works fine in Firefox with the Google Translate add-on disabled. However when it is turned on the sign in screen seems to become not secure. When I log in anyway get an error screen. It works fine when the add on is disabled.


I went to the link suggested in the sign in screen and it seems to imply that the security error could be what is causing the issue.

The tech note at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Responsive_Design_Mode shows a GIF anim of how to add a custom device and user-agent. There should be a button called "Add Device" under "Edit List" but I don't have this.

I've restarted with add-ons disabled, refreshed FireFox, all without any luck. Is there a setting I'm missing?

While it's a small thing, it bothers me a little, because scroll bars won't display correctly on firefox, it appears default firefox white bars instead black bars (I assume black bar is the intended way, because all site got black background and chrome displays this middle bar black)

Both my windows 10 and firefox are fresh installed, no extensions or modifications on browser, it's in your original state!

Some images to better understand the problem:

Not sure it it's a site issue, or a firefox one... Any help appreciated!

I have a number of tabs open each with a link to interesting articles I want to read; some with links to Outlook and Yahoo). Sometimes while trying to read an article, and copy text from them, the screen begins to twitch or jiggle (hops up/down). After a wait and it still happening, I'll open the Task bar (Ctrl+Alt+Del) and close Firefox, then immediately restart Firebox - and recover all open tabs, and then it "settled down" and I have no further problems for the rest of my editing session. (It hasn't happened yet on 4/21 since I haven't opened any news in tabs or checked email yet. (The latest FF update was installed at noon, so it might have been fixed.)

PS, I'm not on-line constantly, just a few hours (or more at a time usually afternoons, so I could not immediately reply to queries. Also the email account related this this posting is not my primary one, so I don't check it every day - unless I'm expecting a reply.)
