Hi,

Since last firefox update, color look too saturated on my NEC wide gamut monitor. It happened before but it was an easy fix changing color management settings at about:config

It does not work this time. Settings are as they should be but still have too saturated colors. I built another monitor profile with my i1 just in case that was the problem, but issue persists...

It all began when firefox was last updated...

Any thoughts??

Thanks in advance

Does Voice Typing not work in Google Docs because Google only supports it in Chrome (I want to use Firefox)

https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/docs/NxVbNIoaBWE/4taOv-h4AwAJ

I have seen a number of attempted solutions for Firefox which would obviously not work if this were still the case.

On a related note, Google searches for Firefox issues can be frustrating because your interface rapidly changes (for example about:permissions going away).

Hi,

I've recently reinstalled my windows 10 and I forgot to manually backup my bookmarks.

When I checked online, I saw that Firefox stored every bookmarks added in places.sqlite. I checked the document and it said that the last modification was recently.

When I use this document to restore my bookmarks, I only get them from 3 years ago. Anything between 2016 and now isn't stored in it....

Is there any solution for me to recover my lost boomarks?

One website which I acccess frequently is http://www.bordersgliding.co.uk/Weather.html. Last week this showed a message at the top of the weather display panel @Javascript required' and the display is not shown. This has never happened over several years of using this site. For some months I have had a problem with 'anit-robot' proceedures such as Captcha which fails to show the image box. I believe these two may be related and linked to the JavaScript issues which arose during 2017 (from memory). I have updated Firefox to 6.50 (32-bit) which made no difference. Any advice on how I overcome this please? Many thanks

My computer was running a LITTLE slow & I had got a pop up suggestion several times over a period of about 3 moths. I decided to try refreshing or resetting (not sure what the tab said).

I don't know what happened, but my computer is nearly unresponsive now, including applications such as Word. I'm afraid to try anything else & am not sure if going back to the last "back up" would fix the problem or make it worse. There is no phone number to call for help & I shouldn't have to pay $100.00 to have someone fix the problem created by Firefox.

After updating to Firefox 65 (for macOS) I noticed that the active tab is almost indistinguishable from other tabs - now only a thin blue line indicates it. How can that be changed?

Thanks.

PS (a couple of hours later): After learning how to move the tab bar back down (which is in Firefox 65 not working anymore as before) the blue line has become more prominently visible which makes the active tab more prominently visible. I can live very well with that and consider my problem as solved.

Can't reset or eliminate master password. Only option is to live with the password pop up or delete the account (if I can)

1. Every time I was the browser I get a pop up requesting my master password. 2. I have chosen the option to eliminate the master password but the system isn't recognizing my password so I can not accomplish this. 3. I try to reset my master password using copying and pasting "chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul" without the quotation marks of course. I press Enter but no reset page ever comes up so I am unable to reset the password. 4. I tried another option but can't recall exactly what it was (I've been at this way too long) where a code will be emailed to me. I've tried two different email acounts and checked spam. I never receive the code.

I guess I will have to either delete my account (if I'll even be able to without the password) and make a new account and import all my bookmarks or live that that password pop up forever. But...before I do that I'd really like to do things right by simply getting a new password. I've noticed many people with similar problems. What's is up? Love the browser but this is ridiculously complicated or impossible to reset a password.

Firefox recently reset on me and I lost all of my previous settings. After the reset, I noticed magnet links are no longer copying Japanese to qBittorrent. The torrent name in qBittorrent shows up as a bunch of ??? instead of Japanese characters. I've tested a few things:

- It's definitely Firefox, links work fine in Chrome, or if I download them. - Firefox displays Japanese just fine, I even tried installing a language pack - This was working prior to Firefox dying on me

"Save link as" link doesn't work

I have many links on my website of the form: "mydomain/checkme.php?mp3=name-of-file". When a link is left-clicked, it runs "checkme.php" to verify the user and log the request to a database, them reforms the mp3 name to "name-of-file.mp3", and opens it. Right-clicking, then "save link as" would normally still do the logging, then provide a "save as" dialog box with the suggested filename "name-of-file.mp3" to allow a copy to be saved locally. PDF files are also handled the same way. Both right- and left-click functions have worked verifiably for years in IE, Edge, Chrome and others, and across all sorts of operating systems, but the "save link as" function doesn't work in Firefox Quantum. Early versions of Firefox apparently perform a correct "save link as" a given page once, but then fail until the page is refreshed ... it's an annoyance, but it does at least do the job. Left-clicking always works properly. However, the "save link as" function in Firefox Quantum won't work at all - the "save as" dialog box comes up with "checkme.php" as the suggested filename (which is wrong!), but then saves nothing ... in fact, when some dummy text is written into "checkme.php", no output is produced - it's as though "checkme.php" isn't even being accessed. Any clues? (Sorry - troublehooting info says "We're sorry, but we can't find what you're looking for.". OS=Windows 7, browser=Firefox Qantum V65.0). Thanks.

Good Morning..

The problem I am presenting is the following:

I have the newest version of firefox and since about 3 months I started to have problems slowing or almost blocking some pages that before opened without any problem. The message that a site is making firefox slow is displayed. But why? If I open these same pages for years and this has never happened .. I do not know how much firefox to have. I am a Firefox user of the first versions but honestly if I continue with these problems I will stop using them ..

When I try to watch a You Tube video Firefox locks up or freezes. Then I have to open up Task Manager to get it to shut down. Very annoying. It doesn't matter whether I click from a link to go to You Tube or go there directly and try to find a video. Firefox locks up either way. I can use other browsers but Firefox is my browser of choice and I always forget to use another browser until it's too late. How can I fix this?

I did not know I had two windows open. One of the issues I have had with FF is that if there are two open and I close the main one (with all my tabs open) first, there is no possibility to restore that session. If I close the "daughter" window, no option to restore appears when I open FF again.

So I'm stuck, unable to restore. I saw an instruction to "replace some file with another, found in the profile folder", but I've no idea where a profile folder might be found.

Additionally, now that I closed the daughter window and tried to reopen FF to see if there is a session restore option on either the menu or the library button, now I have had two sessions open and will no longer find (AFAIK) a copy of a session older than two sessions existent.

This happens now and then, and I wish I didn't get caught this way.

Now what, please?
