I re-installed firefox as it seemed to have irregular problems. After download software and installing I imported saved bookmarks.

Since then every time I have tried to click on links in emails or documents on my desktop (Windows 7) I get the message "this operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. I have followed all the suggested solutions eg clearing cache, editing registry but nothing works. Firefox is my default browser.

Could something have gone wrong with new installation. Should I do it again. Or is it something else.

I have been using Firefox as my default browser for more years than I can remember and dont want to change now.

My previous question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1254024

With the latest update, the following css tweak to disable the creation of new tab when middle clicking the empty tab bar area no longer works.

https://pastebin.com/zSJYR8PJ

This along with the shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+P to open a new private window are features no other browsers have.

With version 70 the flashing flickering url box in the bottom left corner has returned, even though the CSS that worked to kill it in earlier releases remains in mu userchrome.css file. The CSS that worked before is

#statuspanel-label,.statuspanel-label
  {
    -moz-appearance: none !important;
    opacity: .01 !important;
  }

and someone more recently used

#statuspanel { display:none !important; }

but neither of these are working for me in Version 70. How do I get rid of this? Thanks.

I have upgraded to 70.0 and now there is a 6 second delay on loading first site. I have firefox starting in private mode and without a home page. this loads at its usual speed. However, when I click on a bookmark the system hangs for 6 seconds before the site is presented. Subsequent sites load rapidly as usual. I have tested with other browsers and sites and the problem is specific to Firefox and not specific to the site being load. Once loaded, if I open an additional Firefox window this loads sites rapidly. I have been using Firefox for many years and the problem has only occurred since I upgraded to 70.0.

Can anyone help please.

I was force updated to Firefox 70 and I didn't like the new layout for the new tab page, so I installed the .exe to downgrade to 69.0.3 .

However, when I launched Firefox again, I lost all of my saved data on the browser and it was a fresh profile.

Prior to downgrading, I had saved a copy of the Mozilla Firefox folder that is C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox just in case.

Is there any way I could fix this and revert to the saved settings, extensions, and passwords that I previously had?

Thank you in advance.

Can anyone out there help me, I’ve exported my FireFox Bookmarks onto an external hard drive and then copied them back onto the desktop and from there tried to import them back into FireFox.

All the subfolders have imported back into FireFox no problem, but for some reason it has not done so with any bookmarks which appear under the Other Bookmarks listing, is there something I'm doing wrong? The version of FireFox I’m using is FireFox Quantum 6.9.0.3 (64 bit) with Windows 10.

After upgrading to FF 70.0 (64 bit) I all of a sudden have this icon near the right hand end of my address bar that when hovered is described as a 'recommendations" icon. I do not need my software to babysit and thin it knows how I want to use it. How do I get rid of this totally annoying and absolutely useless 'feature"?

Already have all options in Tools - Options - Privacy And Security - Firefox Data Collection and Use unchecked.


FF developers, PLEASE stop turning into Microsoft!
