When clicking on Evernote Web Clipper app to try to activate on upper right side, I continue to get a 3rd party cookie warning. I've tried making www.evernote.com an exception, and have tried all levels of cookie security, but nothing helps. Can't get Web Clipper to become an active app. How do I get by the 3rd party cookie warning?

Hi, on both my computers Facebook won't load in Firefox. It works fine with my wife's account in other browsers. It isn't the account as it still works from my phone. No matter how I go to FB, it will say at the bottom "...transferring data from", but then it will stop and screen just goes white. Sometimes it says, "Something went wrong". I have tried clearing all the date in Firefox and using CCleaner. I have tried starting in safe mode. I have tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing works, but ever other page works just fine on both computers. Anything you have to suggest would be greatly appreciate it. It is, by far, my favorite browser and I hate to have to use another one just for FB. Thanks

73.0.1 (32-bit)

This HP Elitebook 840 G3 running Windows 10 v 1903 64-bit. Have to be careful re-installing as FF wants to make my extensions in GERMAN! Are OK now (see attachment). Have test-removed AdGuard, NO difference, so added it back.

NOTE: screenshot is long out-of-date: AdNauseum removed long before this issue started

In 73.0.1 , opening a new link opens a new window, rather than just a new tab. 72.0.2 did not do this.

For example, I have my home weather page open and I want to open a different weather page in a new tab, but the same Firefox window. Using 72.0.2 this worked, as that is the setting I made in Options/General/Tabs. I have the setting correct, but 73.0.1 ignores it and opens a new Firefox window. I have done this download of 73.0.1 twice in the last ten days. Same result. Would not update normally, by the waay. Had to download a fresh install.

I'm running the latest version of Firefox and when I post a comment on disqus based comment section on breitbart.com my comment gets posted at the location where it should go, but the page automatically scrolls down to the bottom of the page, and then I have to manually scroll back to find my comment and continue reading, And if it's a hot topic, sometimes I have to search for the location, as multiple other posts are being submitted by other readers and my previous location gets lost.

I have moved my bookmarks form an iMac to a new Windows 10 PC. Moving them was not a problem. But they have lost their favicons and now all have a grey globe as the only symbol. Very annoying. I had hoped that I could bring back the favicons one by one by using each bookmark. But that doesn't change anything.

I do not know the correct terms to describe the part of Firefox I am having trouble with. These three links were originally saved on my desktop. I deleted them when I no longer needed them. When I attempt to remove them, nothing happens. If I try to open them, I receive an error message window saying, "The item you selected is unavailable. It might have been moved, renamed, or removed. Do you want to remove it from the list?". There are a "Delete" and "Cancel" buttons in the window. When I select Delete, nothing happens. I have tried to delete the bookmark from my bookmarks, but it is not there. Any suggestion would be appreciated

I am using Firefox browser on my MacBook Pro and I have noticed the following.

When I quit the Firefox app (no background activity), and I click on a link that I receive in an email (from my Mail app), then Firefox opens 2 windows. One is empty and the second leads to the desired link.

On the other hand, if I don't quit the Firefox app but simply close it (x symbol), then when I click on a link it open correctly in a single window.

I work in applications where I need several windows open at once. And I often start one, then need to spawn a new one. I can do that with 'duplicate tab", but then I'm always switching back and forth. I need multiple windows open at once. So what I need is an easy way to duplicate a tab as a different window, so I can have two or more open at once.

I have refreshed Firefox, I completely removed Firefox and downloaded and installed fresh, I have run Ccleaner, Cleared my data and after entering my login and security code it will STILL demand a code even though I have not even closed the browser when trying to log in a second time. I have been trying to fix this for 3 days now! Nothing works.

What does it mean? Is this some kind of tracking?
