Well, I don't know what changed! My antivir tells me that I got a tracking cookie but they want money to delete it. So I searched and found an add on called "NoScript" who could maybe do the job for me.

But my problem is: I am (always) online with Firefox. If I want to download/install ANY add on, the site always tells me "Only in Firefox - Download and install now". As I am online with the newest version (79.0) , I absolutely don't understand this message. Okay, so I gave it a chance, hit the button and "installed" what's allready on my computer. But after that there is no change! If I want the add on, I still get the same message: "Only in Firefox - Download and install now"

What can you do for me or is there (really?) anything I have to change to be able to install AddOns again?


Nun, ich weiß nicht, was sich geändert hat! Mein Antivirus sagt mir, ich hätte einen Tracking Cookie, aber die wollen Geld für die Löschung. Also have ich gesucht und ein AddOn namens "NoScript" gefunden, das diesen Job möglicherweise erledigen kann.

Doch habe ich ein Problem: Ich bin (immer) mit Firefox online. Und wenn ich IRGENDEIN AddOn herunterladen/installieren will, erklärt mir die Seite stets "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter". Da ich immer mit der neuesten Version (79.0) online bin, kann ich diese Nachricht nicht absolut nicht verstehen. Okay, also versuchte ich es einmal, klickte den Button und "installierte", was bereits auf meinem Computer ist. Doch danach hat sich nichts geändert! Wenn ich das AddOn will, bekomme ich nach wie vor die selbe Nachricht: "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter"

Was könnt Ihr für mich tun oder gibt es da (tatsächlich?) etwas, das ich ändern muß, um wieder AddOns installieren zu können?

I just need a few simple things from a browser. Things keep changing. I don't want the changes mostly. Why can't you just have a simple browser for simple people. The more advanced can select their more advanced shite. I just looked at a tab and it became another window. I didn't want that. Maybe I moved a pixel. Keep on being arrogant. You are just a bunch of [profanity] really.

profanity removed. Please read Mozilla Support rules and guidelines

My previous computer would not boot anymore because windows got corrupted. Instead of installing windows again on an old computer I built a new computer. I copy the Firefox related folders from my AppData folder in the old drive and copied them to the new computer's AppData. I thought that would allow me to maintain bookmarks, saved passwords to commonly used websites, and other settings but it did not. How do I get my old settings to work on the new machine?

Thanks, Carl

Since FF updated to v 74 last week, I have not been able to access my Gmail. All other Google apps work OK ( e.g. Maps. Drive, Photos, YouTube, etc.) but not Gmail, Gmail works OK on Chrome and Opera. Gmail was working fine before this last update. All I get now is a blank white page and the FF icon with "New Tab" in the Tab label at the top of the page.

I recently installed Firefox as my default browser on my laptop with windows 10. When I try to download an svg file to my computer, it comes in as a Microsoft Edge HTML Document that isn't compatible to my Silhouette Crafting Program. It doesn't give me an option to download from Firefox. I changed to Firefox to get away from Microsoft Edge. I don't know where to find any settings to correct this? What do I need to do? TIA

Hello,

Something was altered with the Firefox browser. My default page shows a Google Search bar. When I type something in the bar to do a search and hitting enter then brings up https://search.yahoo.com with my search. I didn't intentionally change anything within Firefox and if I go to the "Options" page under my Firefox page, it shows that my default search engine is Google.

How do I fix my searches to use Google and not use Yahoo?

If I use a different browser like Chrome, or Microsoft Edge, they both use Google search correctly.

This problem just started yesterday August 13, 2020.

When looking for credentials (e.g., password) in Lockwise, is there a way to use a wildcard in the url?

I want to sign on to a financial institution called Fubar Bank. If I search my saved login information for the string fubar, it returns nothing. The problem is that the real url is secure.fubar.com . It seems that Lockwise searches only the leading characters.
