Firefox won't load my Google profile on a Blogspot site I read, so I cannot leave comments, which I used to be able to do. I can go to this site via Internet Explorer, and that does work -- my google profile loads right up and I can post comments. What do I need to change in Firefox so that my google profile can be seen by this site?

I need to find all doctor's appointments for a specific doctor in 2018 and 2019. However, the Firefox search tool only allows me to search within one current calendar page. How can I do a search to find and locate a specific name within ALL my calendar pages across multiple years at one time, like I can do in my Microsoft Outlook calendar?

My Folders Pane has entirely disappeared from Gmail. If I move my cursor to the left of the screen I DO NOT get a double arrow that allows me to retrieve the pane. I am NOT missing individual folders; I am missing the whole pane. I attach screenshot.

The folders pane is NOT missing from a different email app I sometimes use - Fastmail

My gmail account is working in Chrome on my android phone and android tablet. The problem is only in Mozilla on this computer.

I am running Linux Mint 19.2 Tina with Ubuntu 18.04 base bionic, Cinnamon 4.2.3. Restarting the computer and Firefox does not help.

Any help you can provide will be much appreciated. Maybe the answer is to uninstall and then reinstall Firefox and Thunderbird? Would prefer something easier.

Thanks!!!!

Read the two 'hits' from my search re: cookie exceptions saved but not working. All I picked up was a) don't want to try Refresh just for this tiny problem b) it may be some .js file override or c) possible file corruption. I dump all cookies at end of session, but typically have a few to a handful listed under Manage perms/Exceptions.

Disconcerting as I entered https and http but either way at least 1 site refuses to save my data. Odd.


Well, appreciate any feedback. Small potatoes.

I can't watch Amazon Prime videos using Firefox 76.0 - 32 bit on Linux Mint 19.3 - 32bit. I do appreciate that this became a long standing battle, judging by the archived material but has the towel now been thrown in? Root cause seems to be that the Widevine plugin has been withdrawn from Firefox and that being so, there must be a good reason.

When the question was archived with a tick was placed on the best answer. That the Widevine plugin can no longer be added from within Firefox, suggests to me that it is now game over. Am I being too pessimistic?

I don't want work-arounds that never seem to last long in this area, ideally I am looking for a permanent fix on the lines that Google will co-operate and promise not to move the goal-posts without supplying the information needed to Mozilla in order to update Firefox first, so that the Widevine plugin can be made available once again and all be covered under Linux updates.

An outright refusal in the above assessment, if correct, would at least demonstrate that the matter was political and that the solution to it is necessarily political too. Something that could likely gain traction in Europe at least.

Any reply welcome, thanks.
