Hello. I have been trying to get the Firefox debugger to hook up with the Aptana editor. The instructions that I have are obsolete. The link http://firefox.aptana.com/update/ is supposed to automatically download the extension. It just takes me to a search engine results page full of links that barely touch on the subject. I also found out the Firebug has been deprecated.

Question: Are Firefox and Aptana divorced? Is there still a way to combine the Aptana editor to the Firefox debugger?

This problem just happen lately, starting around one week ago I think. When I try to paste some URL from google sheet or sometimes I click some link to open in new tab, the webpage will load a blank white page, and the page tab will show the "http://www.example.com" (with quotation mark) instead of the page title. And I need to refresh once again, sometimes two.. for the page to load correctly

Any suggestion to fix this?

Sometimes stopping and then immediately restarting what I'm trying to download in Firefox three or four times gets Firefox to download the file to my OneDrive. But in this case, it doesn't. I want to overwrite the old Vivaldi 2.0 installer file in my OneDrive programs folder with the new Vivaldi 2.1 installer file (.EXE) in my OneDrive "Programs" folder. I'm glad in addition to Firefox reaching version 63.0 Stable two days ago, Vivaldi has reached version 2.1 today. Firefox 63 Stable has many bugs that are easy to notice and need fixing sooner rather than later in my experiences and opinion.

Firefox updated and lost all my saved passwords. I can not access my Facebook because Facebook is screwed up every time I log out of FB. and log back in Fb. tells me wrong password for 2 years it has been this way. I need my saved passwords because Firefox used to log me in Facebook every time i went there but after the update that is gone as well ????? I know nothing about computers and was lucky enough to only waste 2 hours trying to figure out how to do this ???? I have no freaking idea how I will ever get an answer to get help so I hope everyone enjoyed reading this amusing problem!!! Fuck computers and computer life I should have filed a law suit against Texas A&M for forcing me to use these demonic pieces of excrement!!!

I understand the basic concepts of tracking protection but I've been unable to find answers to a few specific questions. I found some documentation here in the questions / answers section but it didn't provide all the answers.

1. Do I need to clear existing cookies to remove the myriad of sites already tracking me before turning on tracking protection? Or, will turning it on do an immediate filter on my existing cookies?

2. Will turning off tracking stop sites that I want to retain login information for from retaining the "login" cookie infor i.e. are we close to a full "cookie block" with anti-tracking? Or does FFox have some creative algorithm (or list) that allows it to distinguish between tracking cookies and less offensive cookies? Concurrently, is there a way to allow a "tracking cookie" if I need it to retain information for a site I'm comfortable with?

3. One specific tracking question: Will eliminating tracking cookies stop (specifically) Google's cross site advertising, where you look at a product on site A (who shares that info via google) and then a little later google's advertising mechanism pops up those products when you're at site B?

I'm running 64bit Win 7 Pro - Firefox 64 talking across my own network to a Linux server at a static IP running IBM Cognos Analytics 11.12 After every report execution, Firefox hangs for then the yellow "A web page is slowing down your browser" Stop / Wait appear. I choose Stop and I can execute again.

It would be nice to identify the offending page / script so that I could fix it. I could be a part of Cognos Analytics and then I'd have to deal with IBM support. Note: I do NOT get this behavior doing the same tasks with GOOGLE CHROME. But since I really don't like Google Spyware, I'd rather have Firefox work correctly.

Firefox doesn't crash, it just hangs waiting for the page to finish (time out?) or me to select STOP.

It tried to brute force open dialogs to get me to download something and kept popping up all sorts of crap. It prevented me from closing the tab by opening up endless dialogs. I finally was able to close the tab by pressing ESC rapidly.

So my suggestion is to allow closing the current tab even if a dialog has focus in the application. This would not allow a website to pop up save dialogs and other dialogs preventing you from closing the tab. Honestly with the current architecture of applications I am not sure this is possible if the dialog is modal.

So I guess is there any kind of emergency mechanism to prevent this kind of thing already? I have pop ups blocked in Firefox settings. I just have never seen a someone abuse the save file dialog like this.

Perhaps I need some third party plugin to protect myself from this. I used to run Noscript, but ran into issues with usability of websites. I also got weary of having to enable servers all the time.

I have mozilla set to notify me when an update is ready but I just watched it update with no input from me.

example: [no input] Double click on the Firefox icon on the desktop and it says wait while we install the latest update. Then the little updater box with the progress bar opens showing update in progress. I DID NOT OK AN UPDATE!

How can I rely on software that does not follow settings? I am using Win 10 and the most current {NOW) firefox thanks to it updating without my permission. This is also why I now use Chrome as my default browser.

Lately, every morning when I open my laptop ( I only use blank screen) Firefox is already open to the http://kbb.com website. This is on a Windows 10 laptop. I cannot find anywhere in Firefox settings that is telling this site to start up nor any reason for Firefox to even be open. I definitely shut Firefox down when I'm finished browsing. There are some 'Recent Highlights" and one of them is showing that page, but I am unable to remove them.
