I was told that there is a setting called move lock to prevent your avatar in Second Life from being moved. Is there such as a setting in Firefox called move lock ? How do you find the setting ?

My Second Life avatar was grief-ed by being flung into mid air by either a script, a push or a repluser. I personally am convinced that is was a script of some sort. Another avatar di try to aid me by sending a teleport request yet every time my avatar landed in the same area I bounced back to both mid air and the land boundaries of where I was at the time.

Hello, I'm using Ubuntu (exactly xubuntu 14.04) and it's always my OS who makes updates. Today my OS made me do an update of Firefox (to 43.0 version). Understand it's the Ubuntu/Canonical firefox version. I prefer to use the OS package manager to install applications. And with this new version of firefox, I can't download anything. There is the animation when I click to start a download, but when I display the progress of ongoing downloads, all downloads are just marked as "failed". PDF files works if I choose to display such files (i.e the default firefox behaviour), but if I chose to download it (or to do a "save link as"), I have this trouble.

What I tried: 1/ I removed all my add-ons & extensions 2/ I created a new user on my OS to have a "fresh" firefox (to get default firefox parameters) 3/ with my Ubuntu package manager I removed firefox, restarted my computer, reinstalled firefox (still through package manager) But the trouble remains even if I combine #2 & #3

I'm very suprised, I've searched bugs and it seems no one has this trouble. Am I the only one? Do you think the bug would come from the Ubuntu firefox package (though I don't think there is much difference) ?

Thanks for your help

When I click the scan button in the program I am using (WebPT) this error pops up in the program "Make sure you have selected "Install Missing Plugins..." from the yellow bar on the top of your screen in order to enable scanning if it is available. To manually install the plugin, click here. After the installation, please restart your browser." So I click "here" and Mozilla pops up a box in the corner stating "Firefox has prevented this site from asking you to install software on your computer". I click "allow" and it says "Firefox has prevented this site from installing an unverified add-on". I desperately need this add-on to do my job. PLEASE HELP!!

So.. I've set Firefox to "Clear history when Firefox closes" on "about:preferences#privacy" and ticked all items in that specific settings page. Firefox did quite well on this task for some time but for some weeks now (I guess, can't say it for sure, sorry) it's failing at some point. It does clear cookies and most stuff but it, for instance, does not clear "Form and search history" which is ticked as well. How can I get Firefox to clear _all_ items on close again?

Can't remember changing anything at all, didn't install any addons or so. Probably just ran some updates through the distros packet management system (dnf). So, if anybody has some explanation for this issue?

I press / or control-f, I choose the 'Edit' option then find, I highlight that triple-bar thingie on the right side of the toolbar then choose find - none of them get me the find tool. I guess that it popped up somewhere off-screen and try to enter text to search for then enter, but that doesn't work. I can't see anything on the screen change. I must have missed it.

Firefox crashes whenever I try saving an image on Arch Linux

This is similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1113518, except I am using Arch Linux, not Windows.

I do not know specifically when this started happening, but it was within the past 2 days, if not with the last 24 hours. Since Arch Linux has continuous rollouts rather than periodic releases, there are almost always some packages that get updated each day, but there was not anything out of the ordinary that was installed/updated in the past few days.

Here are the links to my crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-d879cc0b-7662-4ee9-bd0e-55d072160520 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-77ba4932-4105-4580-8465-ec14f2160520

I uploaded the error message that appeared, also: http://www.nickmcummins.com/files/firefox-crash.log

A few additional comments: - I first noticed this in the standard release version of Firefox, but I tried on Nightly to see if it was happening there too. The problem occurs for both versions. - I have un-installed and re-installed firefox through Arch's pacman package management system. - I have created a new profile and ensured that no extensions were installed. - I have profile sync and am logged in on both my Arch and OSX Firefox. The crashing behavior does not happen on OSX when using the same profile/account as the one I use on Arch Linux.

Thanks in advance for any help, this problem is frustrating.

I take care of 5 systems for this household. Two Windoze 10, one Vista, and two Ubuntu 14.04.

We currently use SeaMonkey, but Sync (ESSENTIAL to us) hasn't worked for literally years, and other things are dragging, including requests for help and info.

My real questions are: 1) Is sync currently working well? 2) Is there anything in the crystal ball that might hamper or destroy sync in ANY foreseeable future? 3) Four of the five systems are 64 bit, one is 32 bit. The Ubuntu systems are one each 32 and 64 bit.

  • A) I presume 64 and 32 bit installations get along together, and have transparent user interfaces as to bitness. Is this true?
  • B) Are there both 64 bit and 32 bit Ubuntu installations?
  • C) Besides bitness, what are the differences between the 32 and 64 bit versions?

4) I guess all the synced items will transfer to FireFox from SeaMonkey?

5) What other problems might I encounter with FireFox that I don't see in SeaMonkey?

6) Is FireFox planned to be supported indefinitely?

Thanks!

My security settings have not been changed, so I don't know where to even start solving this problem.

I'm not a computer wiz, so would appreciate support that I can follow...

Apparently, crashing YouTube is no longer compatible with Windows 8. Today I had to restart my computer five times because YouTube freezing and crashing managed to break my entire desktop. This only happens with Firefox. Also, YouTube is much slower to load on Firefox, which will most likely make Windows 8 crash more often.

The latest update of Firefox installed Foxydeal without my permission!!! Please inform me immediately how to remove this program. It is unwanted, intrusive, bothersome and slows down my computer! Up until now, I have loved using Firefox, if this is the way they are going to operate, I will use some other program.

Firefox only sees the first entry defined in /etc/hosts for 127.0.0.1.

Basically, Firefox is not seeing the modifications to the DNS entries I've made in /etc/hosts. Chrome is. However, later I noticed that Safari is not seeing them as well. After the troubleshooting below, I fixed the problem by moving all my /etc/hosts declarations to different lines as per here: http://www.justincarmony.com/blog/2011/07/27/mac-os-x-lion-etc-hosts-bugs-and-dns-resolution/

I have no idea why that works. But it does fix the issue for Firefox and Safari.

I tried a couple of things as per this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011327

Things I tried (typing about:config into address bar): set keyword.enabled to false set browser.fixup.alternate.enabled to false turned of DNS caching.

None of these things worked, but migrating all my /etc/hosts config from multiple domains on a single line to separate lines did. Hope this helps someone.
