(Crazy how I had to Google "How to post on Firefox forum" to post this. Anyway.)

My Top sites are not showing icons in some random cases (screenshot 1), and I can't understand what cases.

By default, the icons will show the first letter of the website name, i.e. "G" for Google Sheets, Google Forums, Google Drive etc. This is nearly useless, so I'm trying to add icons by linking the tiles to image files online (screenshot 2 shows WIX). However, some of them will show, some others won't.

I assume it has to do with the source of the image, whether it's official or not, but this still makes little sense. And if I add the website URL there instead of an image, it'll show me the full page in the icon, which wouldn't make sense to me.

How could I solve this?

Thank you

When I am playing Innogames Forge of Empires, I frequently get a message that another website is slowing my browser (Firefox). Sometimes it even locks the screen but only in FOE. Great browser and much safer and better than Alphabet soup (Chrome or their other stuff).

I use FireFox exclusively and employ CC Cleaner to keep internet cache sizes manageable and to clear cookies. When over I run CC Cleaner in addition to the file deletions from FireFox there are also files being deleted from MS Edge and Chromium. How is this possible if I never use either of those browsers? How do I prevent the MS browsers from attaching themselves to FF and in essence overriding my quest for privacy?

Firefox may have a bug or corrupted files. I did update it recently when asked to do so No longer runs McAfee Web-Advisor ((McAfee could not fix it) and a game runs slow and hangs up or pauses for a couple minutes. Deep virus scan found nothing. McAfee and game run fine on Chrome (I don't like Chrome). Help please--what should I do? If uninstall and reinstall Firefox do I lose my bookmarks?

Hello, thank you for taking the time to check this out.

I was closing the volume mixer after I no longer needed it and realized that Firefox was showing levels go up whenever I spoke into my microphone. I had been using it before to chat, but not on Firefox at all during the session at the time. No music or videos were playing in any of my tabs. After a while, it no longer picked it up, but I know for certain that there was no output of sound coming from my computer. I haven't been able to replicate it yet, but it does worry me.

Redirects. The net gives instrutions on how to block 'redirects' but they are 'out of date'

When a URL no longer exits, I get a 'redirect' and even it it does, sometimes it "steps on' the correct URL and several attempts are needed to get the correct URL to stick. The "net" gives instructions of: Step 1: Click the "Tools" menu tab in your Firefox browser and select "Options." Step 2: Select "Advanced" from the list of options at the top of the window.

But in Firefox release 83.xxx, "ADVANCED" option does not exist or I can not SEE it. Any idea on how to 'BLOCK REDIRECTS' and just get an error instead?

OR SIMPLE BLOCK URLS one just does not like without using the PARENTAL CONTROLS.

Hi everyone,

I've recently migrated to a new laptop and noticed, after setting up Firefox, that Twitter embeds weren't working on some websites. After some investigation, it seems related to my Enhanced Tracking Settings.

For example, I can get the embeds to appear if I change my Enhanced Tracking Settings to Standard, or if I set them to Custom and disable either of the following:

  • Tracking cookie protection
  • Tracking content protection

Interestingly, leaving the Enhanced Tracking settings as Strict (or Custom equivalent), and disabling Enhanced Tracking Protection for the particular site, doesn't work ...

Is this a bug? Or have I misunderstood how this (exception) mechanism works?

Here's the page I was looking at: https://www.vice.com/en/article/4ad3qp/donald-trump-tiny-desk-electoral-college

Could someone else try experimenting with their settings and see what renders on that article?

Best regards, Ed

Ok, been having these issue like for a really long time, gaving up and switched to chrome for that time being and now even chrome has some bad issue so I am attempting to switch back. I know a lot of us are having the same problem with Kaspersky internet security, they said the next patch would fix it and I am sure the patch arrived. But firefox still has the above issue, and let me clarify the issues; youtube becoming weird, limited suggestion, and sometime shows I am not signed in which I am, and if you keep refreshing it, it would go back and forth in between your account and not signed in.... moreover, I can't type any comment, always with a returned error.... and finally, whenever I am logging in into my hotmail, my machine keeps prompting for security certificate clarification or something.... please help, its been a long while, trying to reinstall both the firefox and chrome, they both still have their respective issues..... thank you

Recently, when I start my Windows 10Pro desktop and I bring up Firefox or click on a URL in an Outlook mail (which starts Firefox), I notice I am logged out of Firefox and have to re-login into my account. I am currently using Firefox version 83.0. This behavior may have started a month or so ago(it is now Nov,29, 2020) before I really started to pay attention to this issue.

Of course during the last several months there have been Windows updates and Firefox updates, so it is difficult to pin this down to a specific set of circumstances.

Once I login into my account, I can close Firefox and re-open or re-start Firefox and I am logged in automatically, as I have always been before. Now when I power off the desktop and re-start the next day I am logged out of my Firefox account.

The only add-ons I have are Ghostery and Google translate.

Any idea what is going on here or what to check for? Thanks.

1: Sometimes when middle-clicking a link to open it in another tab, it will open the new tab with the address of the link I clicked, in the background, but not load it at all.

2: Sometimes when clicking a link (to open in the current tab), it does nothing at all, or selecting an option in a dropdown box won't refresh the page with the new information (for example, zandesk dropdown menus for bug reporting for a developer's game will select the item, but not reload the page with the now relevant boxes to fill out- happens everywhere, noticed it there).

3: Pages will stop loading before they've actually finished loading, like Firefox is cancelling the load because "it's taking too long". I have 400kbps, Firefox, I'm in no rush to STOP loading a page that I'm trying to load...

I've done google searches on how to stop this problem and tried everything suggested but nothing works. Any ideas before I say adios to this slow crappy browser?
