On some, not all, web sites, form fields are black with dark grey type. They are virtually invisible.

I am using Mint 19 with a Dark Theme and was using Google Chrome until recently. I've never seen this issue before.

I am mostly happy since returning to Firefox, but this problem is one that I must solve.

Thanks to all in advance!

Firefox always hangs for a few seconds after moving a tab or downloading something.

This only happens once per session and it's an either/or situation. Meaning, if I move a tab first, it will hang, but my 1st download will be fine. If I download something before moving a tab it will hang but then moving tabs will be fine.

After doing either one once, all subsequent downloads or tab moves are fine.

I would suspect it has something to do with the drawing of the interface because in both cases something new is happening at the top of the browser. This is just my uneducated guess based on similarities between the two issues.

After a power failure in my area while I was online, my Firefox is now giving me "Network protocol error", half loading pages, seldom loading images, slow streaming on YouTube, and "problem loading page"(s).

I am advised by Firefox to inform the website owners but this is surely a Firefox browser problem, not a problem with Google or Facebook or YouTube or any website.

I am on Linux Mint 17. something on a 64bit system.

How does this get fixed?

Ever since Firefox updated, scripts I use to make my life easier don't work anymore. For example, I have a local HTML page in which I can enter the name of a movie, click a JavaScript button, and tabs that search Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other services open up.

I have searches of this sort for other types of media, across search engines with specific criteria set. They save me a ton of time, but they all rely on my browser being able to open up a separate tab for each site being searched.

Is this gone forever in Firefox, or how can I re-enable this in the latest version of the browser? Thanks!

Textboxes used to create and edit webpages in a CMS (content management system).

There are two types textboxes: simple textboxes, only text can be put in: those boxes, I have no problem. Complex text boxes: text and media, pictures, embedded video etc. can be put in: abnormal behaviour of cursor keys and mouse. Describing the abnormal behaviour:

- cursor up key: act as "cursor home" - cursor down key: jump to end of article - delete key: jumps right over characters without deleting them, but encountering a (white) space:

  spaces, tabs and linefeeds are deleted.

- selecting text with mouse: nothing happen when clicking left, sweeping over text: nothing is highlighted.

Not sure when this starts, could be several days or few weeks. (current date: February 16, 2019) Could be related with last Java update.

Other browsers: Chrome, explorer and Edge: no problem.

Pls advice!

i have set up a master password, which get prompted when I start Firefox, but when I type in the password Firefox adds 4 characters before my typed characters. These 4 characters do not show up in the password box. If you enter a blank box - four dots appear. So I spend ages trying to get my password logged correctly. By this time Firefox brings up a no connection error message! I have tried changing the password but this has no effect. I seem to recall Firefox doing this a while back but it was sorted by next update. Any advise would be gratefully recieved as it driving me nuts now!

I'm running Firefox 65.0.2 on Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 LTS.

I keep getting this very annoying popup telling me to update Firefox. I tried to download the package and install it but I'm having difficulty being somewhat new to Linux. I check the support pages and I find this:

"Note: If you use your Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox, you will need to wait for an updated package to be released to its package repository. This article only applies if you installed Firefox manually (without using your distribution's package manager)." (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release)

So, is there a way to stop the annoying popups while I wait for a release in the appropriate Ubuntu repository?

Well, the problem is back. I deleted Flashplayer and thought that helped b/c FF ran well for several days. I ran Onyx to clean my system as I have done weekly for years while running FF. But now FF bookmark links are non responsive. I click a link and nothing happens. Well, I exported links to HTML and backed up the links too. Then removed FF using App Uninstaller. Then redownloaded FF. Imported HTML links and restored links but 50% of the bookmark folders I made are empty!!! I have been having so many problems with FF over the past few months I am about to give up entirely on FF and go back to Safari. Does Onyx not work with FF? Help please. Thanks!

I got some help from FredMcD last week but I don't know how to provide a link to that page.

Firefox Quantum v. 65 allows the user to block "all cookies (will cause websites to break)". However, a cookie designated "marketingapis.com" continues to appear in the list of cookies whenever the browser is used. When attempting to block the cookie through the managing permissions option, the blocked cookie disappears from the list of blocked cookie list and appears in the regular cookie list whenever the browser is subsequently relaunched. I would be grateful for any advice how to prevent this cookie from reappearing.

If this is a cookie set by Firefox, information should be disclosed upfront, and users should have a method to prevent its use (or opt out) for all purposes.

My workplace uses a captive portal to enable internet access, up until now I have not had any problem when login in with Firefox. However, since this morning, a message started appearing when I try to log in (see attached picture), I click on open network login page but it opens the exact same page on another tab, so I have had to switch to another browser for authentication. The other browser alerts me of a bad certificate when I try to log in but it doesn't give me more problems. Suspecting a problem with the certificate I hit the advanced button on the picture and clicked add exception, but nothing happened.

Is there some kind of bug with this page? Can I add the exception in some other way?

This is has remained an ongoing issue from December 2018 that you at Mozilla have failed to resolve.

"The confirmation email we sent to n*******@****.** was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data." I'm pretty sure emails to that account are not bouncing. Could you please unlock my account so that I can access my sync account through THAT email, which actually accepts emails as I've tested many times? (For example, this mozilla account is linked to the same email address, for which I received a confirmation email from Mozilla itself a few minutes ago)

To make matters worse, I could not delete the account to start afresh, because or an incorrect-password response on the dialog form used to submit the change, Therefore I disconnected and now no longer am able to access that account from any browser. When I attempt to create a new account using the same email address, I am prompted with "Account exists", which is understandable.

Attempts to reset password ALWAYS result in an instantaneously displayed (with NO delay or pause) error, "Email was returned", and no email message ever gets sent from Mozilla, in inbox or spam.

I need this corrected immediately. Either resolve this by procedure OR perform and override and delete my account to allow creation of a new account with that SAME email address.

_________________________________ [previous unresolved incident]

This is the EXACT same scenario that I have attempted, but unlike the user mentioned below, who apparently was successful in receiving the reset email from Mozilla, I never received an email message, and Mozilla claims that the "email was just returned". All transpiring within the last 30 minutes, this exact same behavior has occurred whether I attempt a reset on the iOS device (iPhone Xs) or on the PC from which I have responded to this follow-up inquiry.


Something must be constitutionally wrong here, and I assure you that if any Mozilla email had been successfully delivered to the above ISP account, then spam filters would still have allowed examination of such message for my observation and manipulation.

That's not happening. I have added my account as a primary recipient of this response, as verification.
