For many years now I have used the beta channel. At the end of last week I checked for updates and received 73.0b11. I was already on 73.0 beta, probably b10.

Since that update I am unable to edit the contents of the address bar unless I launch a Private Window, where the problem doesn't occur.

I have tried using the "Restart with Add-ons Disabled..." option from the Help menu but the problem remains.

I am running on Windows 10, 64-bit, [Version 10.0.18363.592], with all the latest Microsoft updates.

Hello,

This website (and this website alone) refuses to load correctly for me https://www.mql5.com/ Images do not load and formatting is "strange"

others users are not having this problem

I have switched tracking protection on/off....sometimes it helps when on, sometimes when off; there is no clear pattern

I have tried the suggestions at these pages https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-look-wrong-or-appear-differently https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/some-pages-or-page-elements-fail-load-after-updating

I use windows 10 with the latest firefox, plus I have real-time malwarebytes

Do you have a solution?

Thank you.

Lately, when using FLASH within FF, sometimes the screen goes white, sometimes it goes black. I cannot seem to figure out what to do and how to restart FLASH or get back to where I was. Also, I cannot figure out how to get the DISPLAY settings for FLASH This has recently started about 2 weeks ago. I have no other problems with FF

There's an add-on that filters out those annoying "This website uses cookies" warnings. A very useful add-on. But since a couple of months, it doesn't work well anymore. According to the maker, the problem only occurs in FF on Win, not in Chrome/Opera and not in FF on Linux. And he states that he contacted FF, but that FF didn't do anything to resolve the problem. See https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/i-dont-care-about-cookies/ > Reviews (in the upper right block) > comment by user 13764671 and the reply.

I'd like to know what the status of this reported problem is. Because as I said, it's a very useful add-on. And there's no alternative.

I use different instance of FF with different profiles as front ends for specific php applications. Sometimes when I launch a new instance via the backend script of a GUI app I've created, even though the command line arguments for the firefox binary specify the url, the instance sometimes fails to open the url and stays at the default home page. I'd like to avoid having to set the target url in the preferences for the FF profile and instead load it from the command line, as I set the url in a config file for my GUI app and don't want to have it set in multiple places.

Obviously I can get the PID of the instance, but then how would I use that (or the firefox binary) to tell that instance to open a specific URL?

Code from the script that launches FF: (included variable are defined previously)

   browserlaunchcmd="$browserdir/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -P $browserprofile -no-remote \"http://$webdomain/\""
   ...
   eval "$browserlaunchcmd"

Firefox suddenly won't open on Mac, despite clean reinstall

I am having a similar ongoing issue with Firefox refusing to open, and none of the fixes I've seen in this forum have worked. When clicking the icon it bounces once and then disappears from the dock. Honestly, this started happening about August 2018, and in my troubleshooting decided to give the Developer edition a try, and for some reason that one worked so I stuck with it.

Shortly thereafter (a week or two) whenever I closed down the Mac, Firefox Dev wouldn't re-open. Deleting and reinstalling would work, but I'd have to re-set all my settings, re-activate the theme, etc., and all the browsing history would be lost. So, since then I would rarely shut it down.

A few days ago I had to shut the Mac down completely, but this time Firefox Dev wouldn't open after re-installing. Oddly, I tried regular Firefox again as a solution, and it opened this time. I tested it out by shutting the Mac down completely, then restarting, and it retained all of the settings! I was really glad to once again be able to shut down my laptop at the end of the day without the headache of having to reinstall and re-set everything.

Then this morning, boom - back to the same nonsense, except now it won't open at all. Neither the regular FF or the Developer edition will work. I've done clean uninstalls to see if that was the problem, as in: removed them from the Applications folder, removed them from the Downloads folder, removed the /Firefox folder from user/Library/Application Support/, and emptying the Trash.

I saw in one Support post to delete the fbplugin file, 'as that had been causing Firefox to crash'. The closest I found to an 'fbplugin' file was a bundle-config.1 file, which contained 'fbplugin' throughout the file code numerous times. I renamed it temporarily, but didn't delete it. That didn't help the non-opening problem either.

I also tried installing Firefox v 71, same result as the others.

Keep in mind after attempting all of these solutions of deleting, reinstalling, changing file names, etc., I did a complete shutdown and restart. Also, I have not downloaded, updated, or changed anything since last week's phenomenon of regular Firefox beginning to work again. So I'm completely stumped and would appreciate any help. I'm currently running macOS Catalina 10.15.3. TIA.

I have the following Javascript code which has been working for over 10 years and still works on Chrome, but does not work on FF 73.0 on Ubuntu Linux.

/************************************************************************

function update() {

   var	form	= document.nameForm;
   if (form)
   {		// form present

var url = "/FamilyTree/getIndivNamesXml.php"; ... code to complete url by appending values of elements from form // invoke script to obtain list of names for selection list HTTP.getXML(url, // see O'Reilly Javascript gotNames, noNames);

// clear out the old selection list while we are waiting var select = form.individ; select.options.length = 0;

// put a dummy entry at the top of the selection, otherwise // selecting the first name does not call onchange var name = '[choose an individual]'; var option = new Option(name, -1, false, false); option.innerHTML = '[choose an individual]'; select.appendChild(option);

   }		// form present
   else
       alert("nominalIndex.js:update: cannot find form");

} // function update ```


When I put alerts into nameOnKeyDown and update I see that nameOnKeyDown is called but update is never called.

You can see the above code in action at https://www.jamescobban.net/FamilyTree/nominalIndex.php?name=allenby,%20a&treename=&lang=en

This code has worked for over 10 years, and still is working today on Chrome, but the timer never pops on Firefox 73.0 on Ubuntu Linux 19.10.
