At times I would like to search for an add-on that I can not "Phrase" the description of as such:

'I am looking for an addon that will download every page I visit for a predetermined time automatically and make those downloaded pages accessible to the open tabs from which those downloads came from so that I can have the cache on hard drive"

I don't know how to call this thing by a search term and need help with this one question really.

I would have other question also such as how to build an add-on.

Is there a forum specifically related to these add-ons only This forum should be specific to the types of add-on we see in Firefox and Google Chrome for developers and enthisiasts.

I see no link to such a forum in the addons page though there is the link to Manage add-ons; or, is this the best place for such questions?

Thanks in advance!

I cannot login to Yahoo mail on Firefox. I get this message:

         An error occurred while processing your request.
         Reference #97.b77a4217.1617032828.126c598b 

This might be a problem with Yahoo, but I am able to login on other browsers.

Any ideas?

Looking for a solution/work around to the new FF protocols which REFUSE exceptions, which has cut me off from streaming from LEGITIMATE web sites like https://news.stlpublicradio.org/ and other sites as well.

I have used FireFox since Netscape, but am now using Chrome which works fine.

Security is great, but when the security Trumps the ability to actually USE the web sites, then how is that different than just blocking the "offending" website.

You should ask yourselves why the FF market share is so low.

You guys need to come out of the clouds and smell the digital earth where most of us dwell. I love you all for what you do, but you seem to be blowing it. Please get it together.

Hello!

I am used to search via address bar (My browser: Firefox 87.0 64 bit, Windows 10 Pro, Build 19041.867 ). Since a few month I sometimes receive an annoying Message wich I can not get rid of (image).

I deleted Firefox completely and installed it again. My Virus scan and Spybot Search and destroy did not report any results.

My only Add-on is AdBlocker ultimate.

Plugins: OpenH264 Videocodec and Widevine Content Decryption Module.

Search via Google did not help.

I suppose that something is corrupted.

I finally have no clue how to solve that problem and would be glad if somenone could help me.

Thank you in advance!

Do I have to get Microsoft's Edge if I am 100 % satisfy with Firefox. I think I'm being bully to get Edge.

Today I found out that Many apps on my system work in the background and slowing down my machine. I enlisted the consulting assistants of an expert and was told that the biggest are Adobe and Microsoft. I had a cleaning done to my system and the results were amazing. I disable Apps I didn't need, uninstall App I did not use in a long time and disable services that did not provided me with any substantive experience or improvement in productivity. The results were amazing. My system was running faster than I have ever seen it run, including the first year after I purchase it. Well, about 2 hours later, I got this notification from Microsoft saying that I have to enable these optional services because Edge would make it better for me to serve the web and have a custom experience and get tailored adds based on my activity. If I had a choice I would pick No Adds. After I read their notification that I had difficulty reading and understanding little of it, I felt pressure to signed up with Edge as my browser. These services were eating my resources like there was no tomorrow and were effecting my productivity level. Microsoft's notification included a screen shot of the changes I did today in my settings with the disable buttons in Privacy and Personalization areas. I have all the required setting about diagnostics, etc. enabled, is there anything I can do to prevent them from using me like a cheap prostitute? Can they shot my account down for that? Is there any other OS providers I could get?

Clicking a link in email from my insurance company always yields error 404, file not found. Saw notes from 2017 about removing all data about a domain but can not find a way to do that in current version. Clicked link today, 4/6/2021, got error "HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found" This has been happening for a long time. I have cleared cookies and all data, removed & reinstalled Firefox, still same issue.

See the attached screenshot. the function is mostly useless as-is now.

This is on Firefox 87 Manjaro 21 (Linux)

Default theme is used.


According to https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/8k3sq4/firefox_updated_to_6001_and_the_search_box_is_no/ there's something wrong with userchrome.css in the profile but that file should be patched if that's the case.

Why this hasn't been patched since it's introduction in version 60 is beyond me.

As of today´s update to 87.0 FF has become virtually unuseable on many sites. Tab titles, website address line and contents of websites that were fine so far display missing or pink singular letters or whole lines of text are made up of blackened squares and rectangles. Upon marking said lines the correct text is visible. What´s going on? Cache and cookies clear, rebooted, still same problem. Hesitant about wiping account regarding having to reinstall all addins that have been running fine for years. Deleted Kaspersky addin in hopes it was the culprit. Unfortunately, no. Any ideas anyone?

using firefox 87.0 on three different systems - all with same add-ons and extensions. Two of the three will not display a bank web site properly. How do I trouble shoot? When I use safe mode, site still not displayed properly but log-in box now shows up. Went through all add-ons and extensions - all are configured exactly the same, cleared all cache and cookies, rebooted etc. Still no go. Windows 10 64bit with all current updates.

Today, when I enter any search term, Firefox puts up a new page saying there is "excessive network traffic" from my computer. The search is for anything, such as "Firefox contact" or "grow azalea". Is this a feature in a new Firefox update?

I have more than 100 tabs and more than 1k open in the background (the tab is downloaded from the previous session, but not open). When opening / closing the FF tabs, it gradually uses up to 18-20GB. When this limit is reached, friezes begin, the tabs open slowly. Memory busy FF is released ~2GB, after that it starts to load pages. According to symptoms, it looks like a shortage of RAM. But I have 64GB RAM, reserve (Win) 17GB, free 15GB. And more is 9GB SWOP on SSD, 136GB of free space on SSD and 1TB+ free space on HDD (RAID0), 200+ MB / sec internet . Where and what to change to ff used accessible resources? After all, they exist!
