I am not able to post pictures in Facebook comments using Firefox on my laptop. I am posting this here rather than in FB because I *am* able to post using Internet Explorer. When I click on the camera icon within the comment area nothing happens. In IE, doing the same opens up the ususal window to select the file I want to upload. Also, on my LG Android phone I can add photos to comments. Is there some setting in Firefox that could be the cause?

Firefox reset - lost previous session and plugins

I was trying to attach a jpg into an email using Gmail on Firefox. One of my attachments would not load, no matter how I tried. I then read there is a PROBLEM with Gmail and Firefox as regards attachments. Is that the case? The attachment sent fine in Chrome.

So I followed instructions and did a "refresh" of Firefox. Now I lost my previous session restore, and a plug-in/extension that I was using and liked.

It put a list view to the left of the window that showed me all open tabs, and on which each listing could be clicked to go instantly to that tab. I can't remember what the name of that extension is, and, again, it has disappeared.

I don't want to switch back to Chrome because it's a memory hog, but this behavior from Firefox is frustrating. Is there anyone who can help?

Thanks, Gary Stockdale

I have a completely fresh install of mozilla on my laptop *HP Elitebook 8470p*, it plain refuses to load webpages, and it seems to be the only browser to have this issue.

It has the following specs: a I5 3340M 8GB DDR3 RAM at 1300MHz Integrated graphics chip

Its running windows 10

Is this a case of the specs being utterly lacking or am I missing something.

An important url link no longer works. The Icon I used was working for years. Is it possible it is blocked? I use the required link to login to my IRA and I get a blank screen with a note - Try Again. The link works in Private Browsing window. I can get it to work on my cell phone, Windows Explorer also.This link is very important to me. I have searched to no end to see if it was blocked. Is it safe to use Private Browser? I do not know how to setup Private Windows. What do I do to get the link working again from my Favorites bar?

After upgrading to Firefox 77, I have trouble reaching internal websites the way I used to. My company uses a custom internal top level domain for internal services, let's call it `mytld`. If I enter a domain such as `webservice.mytld` in the address bar, I end up in search results on Google. Previously, I would end up on https://webservice.mytld/ as expected.

I have found a partial solution with the setting `browser.fixup.domainwhitelist.webservice.mytld`. The issue I have with that solution is that I have to configure every single service that way. I would rather have a solution where I can educate Firefox to understand that `mytld` is a valid TLD for me.

Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.
