How do I get to links without Firefox blocking me with a BS "unsecure" message or a gnome with a broken electrical cord? Firefox USED to be terrific.

Tried to buy tickets to events on several different websites. When I hit the "buy tickets" button Firefox does not respond at all. I had to use a different browser which had no problems.

2 problems just started happening after years using: 1) when I attempt to bookmark the box give me 3 folders to pick from or choose like normal but when you select choose you don't get a list of all your folders to scroll and select from. Now it only allows me the those 3 shown or new folder option, and if I don't pick one fast enough it automatically just saves and closes which brings up 2) when a bookmark is saved it doesn't go at the bottom of the list of bookmarks as usual but can be found in "recently bookmarked" where I can then move it. additionally when I make a new folder it does not go into my list of bookmarks either. The folder will show up in "other bookmarks" tab and has to be dragged and placed in my bookmark list. searched around and can't find a way to restore it to normal.

I have been using Firefox as my default application to open PDF files and everything worked correctly until recently. Now when I open a PDF, the file opens a blank browser tab and continues to open more blank tabs until I close Firefox to stop more tabs from opening.

I have restarted Firefox in safe mode and get the same results.

What can I do to fix this?

I have an issue related to pinned tabs that I hope someone can help me with.

Using Firefox 61.0.1 on Windows 10. I recently installed an add-on called AutoMute that mutes all tabs by default, a side-effect of which is that the audio-muted overlay icon shows in ALL tabs. I managed to find this css and added it to userchrome.css, which is supposed to remove the icon from ALL the tabs:

.tabbrowser-tab :-moz-any(.tab-icon-sound,.tab-icon-overlay[muted]) { display: none; }

I also set the about:config property called browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon to False.

But for some reason, the audio muted overlay is still showing up in pinned tabs. I tried to define above rule specifically for pinned tabs, but that is not working either:

.tabbrowser-tab[pinned="true"] :-moz-any(.tab-icon-sound,.tab-icon-overlay[muted]) { display: none; }

If anything, its even more important for the audio muted overlay to be gone from pinned tab, since, apart from aesthetics, their limited real estate makes it more likely to be clicked on accidentally. How do I remove the audio muted icon from pinned tabs?

Please help!

when opening the second or third tab, the tab opens, but when I then go to any website in the new tab Firefox freezes, and "stops responding" for 20-30 seconds, oddly though when I open a 4th, 5th or 6th tab all seems fine. This only started since the recent upgrade to 61.0.2 I am running windows 10 Home, version 1803, OS build 17134.165 I use Trend Micro Version 12 I have rebooted, and followed the procedure for The Refresh Firefox feature, but it still happens

How do I remove the separators in the right-click tab context menu?

I am trying to remove the context menu items that I don't need and would like to not see. I was able to successfully remove all the items that I wanted to after following this guide on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/7dvtw0/guide_how_to_edit_your_context_menu/

However, I was only able to remove the third separator that is displayed right below the menu item called "Send Tab to Device." I now have an issue where the items are deleted, but the separators are still there. As a result of this, I now have three separators that I do not want and look really weird. The code I used to do this is below. The part where I removed the separator is at the bottom of the first segment.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

/*Removes Items from Tab Context Menu*/
#context_reloadTab,#context_toggleMuteTab,#context_openTabInWindow,#context_sendTabToDevice,#context_bookmarkAllTabs,#context_closeTabsToTheEnd,#context_closeOtherTabs,#context_undoCloseTab,#context_closeTab, #context_sendTabToDevice_separator,

/*Removes Items from Right Click Menu; Diagram here: https://imgur.com/b5gEfUy */
#context-back,#context-forward,#context-reload,#context-stop,#context-bookmarkpage,#context-navigation,#context-sep-navigation,#context-savepage,#context-pocket,#context-sep-sendpagetodevice,#context-sendpagetodevice,#context-sep-viewbgimage,#context-selectall,#context-sep-selectall,#inspect-separator,

/*Removes Items from Right Click on Selected Links Menu; Diagram here: https://imgur.com/e9AaMx3 */
#context-openlinkintab,#context-openlinkinusercontext-menu,#context-openlink,#context-openlinkprivate,#context-sep-open,#context-savelinktopocket,#context-sep-selectall,#context-sendlinktodevice,#inspect-separator  {display: none !important;}
Only once I added
#context_sendTabToDevice_separator
did that the third separator disappear after restarting Firefox.

Only way to add bookmarks is to drag a link to the toolbar. Aside from that, I can't add them. I also can't delete them by any means whatsoever. I've already tried the solutions listed here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/changes-toolbars-and-window-sizes-are-not-saved they didn't work. I also don't have sync enabled so that wasn't the culprit either. None of my plugins are bookmark related. I'm using the latest version of Firefox Quantum. This is really infuriating, if it keeps up I'm going to have to go back to Google Chrome.

I refreshed Mozilla, which was suggested to make it work more quickly. But I didn't understand that it would remove my ad-remover. I found that in the Old Firefox Data folder, in the Browser-Extension-Data file, and I also found 4 files of Norton security (idsafe, nortonhomepage,nortonsafesearch, and nortonsafeweb). Does this mean my security from Norton has been dumped and is no longer functioning? If so, how do I get it back into my browser? And the same with the ad-remover. I think before I refreshed there was some mention that things could be brought back to the browser if desired. Sorry if I haven't used the right terms here, I'm not always sure what they are . . .

I have noticed recently I can no longer delete single entries in the autofill drop down. Currently using a MacBook Pro. Ive tried all the suggestions listed and tried Firefox in Safe Mode with no luck. I use the down arrow to highlight the entry and when I use Shift+Delete, the drop down list disappears. Ive tried just highlighting and using only the Delete key and that does not work either. Ive restarted my laptop as well, just in case, and still have no luck.

Hi, I am running Firefox on Windows 8.1 and have a variety of issues: - recaptcha is never displayed - sometimes when making purchases no "submit" button is displayed, preventing me from going to checkout - sometimes search boxes are not displayed.

These problems do not occur when I use Chrome to complete the transactions.

I have disabled all add-ons in FF but this does not eliminate the problems.
