I recently starting using browser-based Gmail on Firefox (version 80.0 (64-bit)). When I now to try to send an email from MS Word and other programs I receive the message "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." I also get a MAPI error. How do I link these programs to Firefox-based email?

Firefox was updated last night on my laptop. After the install it started for several seconds then shut down. Every time I tried to start it it did the same. I used the troubleshooting page when it eventually did load which recommended clearing the cache and refreshing Firefox. Having done a refresh before I was surprised to see that there was no Old profile folder (or whatever it's called). After this I tried to start Firefox and received the error message "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessable. It was now impossible to start Firefox as all I got was the same message. I thought something had gone wrong with the update, or refresh, so decided to uninstall, then reinstall. This did not solve the problem either. I am now stuck without Firefox on my laptop. OS is Windows 10pro version 2004.

I have a close graphic button which is gray. The button turns to black (#000) on hover. The background is white.

In high contrast black mode in Windows 10, the background is the reverse of white, black. The button is gray, which I think is the reverse of its color in normal mode.

But on hover, the button, which is supposed to be rendered with the color reverse of black, is actually rendered black (#000) and turns out invisible in the black background.

The same problem is observed for active and focus pseudo-classes of the same button.

And the problem also exists for the box-shadow property of ::before pseudo-element.

Firefox/Mac gets stuck when asking it to send Outlook mail/share Google Drive items

Hi, I'm using a Macbook pro (OS Mojave) & Firefox (80.0.1). I'm having issues when I'm in Outlook365 (web version) and I click the People icon at bottom left to send an email to my Contact Lists. I select a list, and Send E-mail, and the pop up window for Outlook Office 365 opens but there is nowhere to write the email. Just says "Loading" with a spinning wheel. Works with Safari, though.

Same for sharing with Google Drive. When I click Share, it says "Sorry, Sharing is unavailable at this time. Try again later." But it too works with Safari.

This just started happening a couple of weeks ago. I stopped all the extensions. I even threw out the Cookies and Cache, restarted, and refreshed/reinstalled Firefox.

Any help would be appreciated.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Previous install of Firefox problematic - profile manager wouldn't show. Removed installation.

Downloaded / installed 80.0.1 (64bit). Same problem. Can start Firefox normally but cannot start/interact with profile manager (firefox.exe -p)

Try to open profile manager. Window doesn't appear. Firefox is running in task manager. No option to show window. Kill process. Try to start profile manager again. Same thing. Window doesn't appear but Firefox process in task manager. Restart machine several times. Still doesn't work.

Enter 'about:profiles' in firefox address bar. Create new profile. "Launch profile in new browser". New browser does not appear but exists as process in task manager. Shut down first firefox window (the one used to create new profile). Kill windowless process in task manager.

Run 'firefox.exe -p' in Run. Window doesn't appear (as before). Kill process in task manager.

Run firefox from shortcut. Opens in new profile.

Problem: want and need to run Profile Manager.

When switching to "tablet mode" (on MS Surface) FF window i scaled small - not fitting the screen. To make it working I have to switch bach to "desktop mode", enlarge window to fit screen (click icon on the bar) and switch back to tablet. No a big deal, but a bit annoying. Recent FF, but it was the same on few last versions.

Running Ubuntu Linux in version 80.01.

Problem: Since Updating to Firefox 76, a strange problem occurs. All dark colors and context menu backgrounds become transparent. When having a window open behind the Firefox window, it will show through in all areas with dark colors (through images, text, menu's). This problem proves an issue, as I had to change my main desktop background to a solid black one to make Firefox usable, even so, I cannot use the context menus while on a website with a white background.

Solutions I have attempted: Changing browser themes/system themes Reverting all cosmetic changes Disabling all privacy add-ons Reverting all modified settings Even a fresh install using a different (default) profile did not work

What semi-works Booting in safe mode does fix the issue but the fresh install did not.

My question is: Does safe mode do additional modification to the browser other than reverting user modified settings? Basically, does safe mode mimic a fresh installation and if it does do additional changes, is it possible mimic the cosmetic changes that it does for normal browsing?

Since several version of Firefox, I'm unable to use the menu of Firefox when in full screen as it shows itself outside of screen. As I understand it, the origin of the windows seems not correct, as the arrow on the top, which should be under the mouse pointer, is at the opposite. (See the picture attached, it's probably best explained that way).

I've tried to launch Firefox in safe mode, but It didn't change anything.

Although I have 4 dictionaries installed (not language pack, dictionaries) and can access them when writing in most webpages, I cannot use them, or even see the "Languages" sub menu when right-clicking on Office 365 and Gmail through the web browser. I can see misspelled words, as they are underlined in red, but it doesn't give any correct spelling when I right-click on them also.

I am running Firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 10 computer. When I recently opened my LastPass vault I can see a dialog box asking for me to grant LastPass permission to access website info so the extension can fill forms. There is an Accept and Decline button. Unfortunately, this dialog window and the buttons appear to be floating behind the entries in my vault and can not be selected or clicked.

I'm hoping this can be fixed, and also wonder if this type of error appears on other sites with dialog windows.

Hi there,

I am using Firefox 80.0.1 in Ubuntu 18.04, although I have also encountered the following problem in previous versions of Firefox.

I have Firefox configured to always ask me where to download files.

Whenever I try to download a file, Firefox always suggests as destination directory a temporary directory, such as:

/run/user/1000/doc/643c8d42

It doesn't matter if I choose a different location, next time I try to save a file Firefox always defaults to a similar temp directory.

I have tried fiddling with the variables browser.download variables, such as browser.download.LastDir, but it does not fix the problem.

Any suggestions, please? Thanks in advance.
