We love Firefox except for: • The automatic updates. We’ve turned this off in options, but updates still take place without our approval and they really screw up our pages. What do we have to do to prevent this from happening? • What if we do NOT want Firefox to be our default browser?

how can I force my browser to redirect links that point to www.amazon.com to actually go to smile.amazon.com? I'm not wanting to BLOCK amazon, just enter through the proper access. most links are put into emails/documents as www.amazon.com and I want my browser to default/redirect to smile.amazon.com. if I can figure this out, I can also use this for other sites which support non-profits for traffic/transactions.

Copy Photo but Pastes a web location instead

Using FF 84.0.1 (64 bit) on Windows 10 Pro (v 20H2) (OS build 19042.685) (Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0) and MS Office 2003. Until recently I've never … (read more)

Using FF 84.0.1 (64 bit) on Windows 10 Pro (v 20H2) (OS build 19042.685) (Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0) and MS Office 2003.

Until recently I've never had this problem but now, when I right click an image on a website and choose 'copy image' then paste it into my MS Word 2003 document, instead of the image, I see text containing the image's location.

Example: Instead of a pasted photo I get this: { INCLUDEPICTURE "https://food.fnr.sndimg.com/content/dam/images/food/fullset/2020/21/KC2613_Country-Style-Eggs-Benedict_s4x3.jpg.rend.hgtvcom.826.620.suffix/1608571541589.jpeg" \* MERGEFORMATINET }rrrttttt5f4f4rrtt54frt54ff5

Whenever I try to sign into my eBay account, I have to solve a captcha puzzle by sliding a puzzle piece into the puzzle. After I do this (and get a message from eBay stating "Verification Succeeded") I then get a pop-up box, apparently from Firefox, stating that Firefox needs to "repeat any [prior] action" to display the page, but when I click the RESEND button, it just takes me back to the puzzle, which I have to do all over again and get caught in an endless loop. I called eBay, and those idiots were totally useless in fixing this problem, and told me that Firefox is "blocking" the page.

And yes, I downloaded the most recent version of Firefox and I'm still having this problem.

How do I fix this problem?

Trying to migrate Firefox profile from Win 7 machine to new Win 10. Downloaded Firefox to new machine, confirmed that it worked, closed it.Using Troubleshooting feature, located active profile in old Win 7 machine, copied to USB stick. Closed Firefox on new machine, navigated to Profiles folder, copied the Win 7 file to it and deleted the existing file. Tried to start Firefox, got 'Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible'. Fiddled round a bit, finally uninstalled Firefox from the new machine and downloaded it again. Got the same error message, now no Firefox at all after carefully following such instructions as I could find. What the f*ck am I doing wrong? A year or so ago I transferred the Win 7 profile successfully to a Win 10 laptop. What has gone wrong now? Any suggestions most welcome.

Addons use to show up at the top right hand part of the screen. I have checked solutions but haven't found one that fixes the addon problem. I would like to see how many sites have been blocked. I asked this question a little earlier today and one community member said to click on the >> at the left of the tool bar. I do not have any of those marks on my tool bar. Any other suggestions? Thank you.

Hi all,

We have an internal web application that uses an external application on our pc's to handle certain links.

After updating Firefox to version 8X it now continually asks to open these links. The Always allow... checkbox is not respected. Once checking the box it lasts for the period you have the browser open but as soon as you close Firefox and open again it will again prompt.

I tried renaming my handlers.json file and letting it be rebuilt to no avail.

Anyone know what he issue might be?

thanks

“连”、“设备” are Microsoft YaHei(MSYH), but the others are other fonts which are not on my computer, and although my settings are zh-CN, my language pack is zh-CN, my Default Font is MSYH, the bold characters are JAPANESE STYLE CHINESE CHARACTERS. Maybe it is because in your font-config, ja-JP is former to zh-CN, please fix it.
