Hi

I have installed latest FF version (80) and have deinstalled and reinstalled all Flash Player version - also the plugin version for FF. Now after several tries some websites (VMware managing sites for vsphere) are working and if I choose the Flash version of them I get the picture/button for enabling flash and the website is opening correct.

But if I go to another managing website for VMware horizon view administration (admin site for managing VMware VDIs) then no enabling button appears and directly I get the information that I need to install flash version 11.1 or higher.

This problem is only on Firefox. In IE and Chrome I can acccess the site without problems but in Firefox it doesn't work anymore since version update 80. The problem is that I can't open the side to get this enabling flash.

Is there a way to open it if it doesn't appear automatically?

Regards,

my wife has no interest in learning some new approach you have to the UI.

you moved everything by default.

 she switched today after being a user at my suggestion since you began.  she is now on chrome.

I suggest you allow a classic default in settings.

I find it very annoying to have a rectangle in the middle of the start page, which is completely without definition. I can try to set her up as close to what she had a few days ago, but that means reading through everything more than once! Best to go to Chrome. I am disappointed. she is gone. no doubt there are millions of us. no reply needed.

With an image I have to click on the semi circle arrow and click re download. The second time it's fine and It downloads no problem. Can anyone help me?

Google Sheets glitch in Firefox 80.0.1

Google Sheets is not functioning correctly in FF 80.0.1. I have two Macs; iMac and Macbook Pro both running OSX High Sierra and displaying the same issue. Google Sheets appears 'sticky' e.g. when clicking from one cell to another a whole section of the sheet will suddenly be highlighted. Clicking away simply moves the selection. It takes repeated clicking to finally select the desired cell. Tabs for different workbooks at the bottom can't be selected without the tab being 'grabbed' and dragged following the mouse cursor. Again, repeated clicking is required to release the tab.

I'm seeing no similar issues when viewing the same spreadsheets in Chrome. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hello, I am using Firefox 80.0. Since the last update, some Comcast emails I send from Xfinity's web email portal have not been getting to their intended recipients. I get an email sent pop-up message. They show up in the sent folder. But they don't arrive where they are supposed to go. These are to clients I regularly correspond with so it's not a case of a typo in an email address. I get no notice that the emails did not arrive. I did several test emails to a Gmail account I use infrequently. They did not arrive. Then I decided to log in to my Comcast/Xfinity account on Google Chrome and send test emails from there and that worked. Anyone have any idea what's going on here? I really want to continue using Firefox for many reasons. Thank you. Regards, Slack

Trying to download Slack and Ebay apps -- both function on this computer but are not present as downloads -- read that "slack can be used in a web browser, but we recommend downloading" and think that that is how I am able to use it -- want it downloaded -- do I have to change setting on Firefox to make this happen.

This morning I discovered that FF has updated itself somehow (despite my setting things to ask and not install automatically - READ THIS MOZILLA - THIS POLICY SUCKS!)

In going to Ebay to complete and print a shipping label, I have to enter numeric data for weight and dimensions. Like never before, this new version shows these input fields in a manner (see attached) that makes it impossible to see the full values and it forces these stupid up/down arrows on me further making things painful. I opened the same page in Chrome and neither of these happen there.

How can I make FF just use normal, numeric input fields?

Thanks

Firefox v. 80 Ctrl+F5 and Web Developer Disable Cache Don't Work

Prior to Firefox v. 79, when I was developing a web site and needed to clear the cache of cached CSS and javascript files, I could quickly do so using Ctrl+F5.

When v. 79 came out, I had to go into the Web Developer Tools' settings and select "Disable HTTP Cache (when toolbox is open)" or check "disable cache" on the Network Tab. I could have lived with the latter, that's a pretty cool feature. However, with v. 80, that doesn't even work reliably. At times, I have to go into Firefox Preferences -> Privacy and Security -> Clear Data -> Uncheck "Cookies and Site Data" -> and click "Clear."

That's five clicks each time I need to clear the cache while I'm working, when it used to just take a quick Ctrl+F5 key combination.

I've seen some suggestions to disable Firefox caching altogether in about:config, but I don't want to do that because Firefox is my primary browser.

Are there any solutions, or is there a fix forthcoming? I checked Bugzilla and saw some reports of the problem, but didn't see a fix in the works.

Hello everyone

My problem is repeated Firefox a/c drop outs when using Firefox. - four or five a week. When re-logging back-in I have to go through the same routine of getting a OTP from Mozilla and putting it in to get back on. This has been going on for 4/5 months when for some reason Mozilla/Firefox thinks I am using a different device when I am absolutely not. I use the same PC on the same wi-fi provider using the same router, logins etc. A few months ago all my Lock-wise password details disappeared and I haven't seen them since ... arghhhh! Even when I put a few back in and manually sync them, they are gone at the next login. Something is not right here, but I am clueless as to what though ... any ideas folks?

Windows 10 64bit, up to date, latest Firefox installed. WiFi hasn't dropped out in literally years.

Dear Firefox community,

I recently aske the following question of the technical team for an on-line math app called 'ST Math' which is used throughout high schools, gradeschools and homeschools world-wide:

Hi Technical Team! Will you be incorporating Firefox as a supported browser with the launch of the soon-to-be updated ST Math? This is the preferred browser for our family for security, speed, and functionality reasons. Appreciate your assistance & looking forward to your response.

Their response: I'm sorry, but no, we do not have plans to support Firefox use as it does not support some of the required HTML and JavaScript functions in our system. MIND Support

Firefox is the only web browser not supported by this application; please will someone investigate this.

Sincerely & Respectfully,

A faithfull user of Firefox for over 10 years

Hi Guys,

I'm having an issue which started a few days ago, where when I search for items using Google, the results used to include images and shopping results (where applicable). For example if I search for a pair of speakers, it used to also show results of retailers that stock the speakers and show an image of the speaker and the price the retailer is selling at.

This was very good for a quick price comparision. But since a few days, those image results are shown, but dissapear after about 1 second. I've tried restarting Firefox and my Mac several times with no joy. I haven't changed any settings in FF (I'm using version 80.0.1 (64-bit)) or anything and no changes to my computer also,

Now if I do the same search in Google on Safari, I'm getting some of the image and shopping results returned and they don't dissapear.

I've attached a couple of screen shots from FF and Safari which show how the search results differ. I'm also using the same Google account on both.

Anybody have any ideas?

About 3 weeks ago, I started using the Windows Mail App as my email client. Every time I try to click on an email hyperlink within the body of an email, it opens the link minimized in Firefox. I then have to go to the task bar, click on the Firefox icon to maximize and then view the link.

Prior to this, I was using Outlook as my email client. I never had this issue when using Outlook. I would simply click on a hyperlink within the body of an email, and it would automatically populate a maximized and ready to be viewed tab in Firefox.

I tried to reach out to Windows support, and of course, they are claiming this is a Firefox browser issue. They are stating that I have to tell Firefox the way HTM's are handled. However, I don't see such option in Firefox and as I explained, I never had to do this when using Outlook in conjunction with Firefox.

Thanks in advance for any help provided. FYI - if it is of any help, I am running the latest version of Windows 10, and the latest version of the Firefox browser (80.0.1).

ff 81.0b5, last updated 03 sep 20. problem: after 9 reliable years, Canon ImageClass MF3240 printer suddenly started printing ALL blank pages when printing from FF. printer knows how many pages to print, just they are all blank. printer runs *normally* off Tbird, Notepad, Adobe Acrobat, etc., and also from another browser (Opera). yesterday i noticed for the first time that when i call for a print of a web page (FF), i get a really weird looking Print Preview page that i have never seen before. after choosing which pages i want to print (Custom), i click print and it spends a long time sending the print job to printer. then i get all blank pages. sometimes the Preview page on the display goes blank, too. sometimes i get a popup error message 'there was an error in printing' OWTTE. the directions in FF Help for printing are obviously written for the Print preview Page i WAS seeing before yesterday 03 Sep 20. they do NOT reflect the choices shown on the new, strange-looking Print Preview.

what i'v done so far re-start FF re-start FF in Safe re-start computer read Troubleshooting Info in about:support https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox -completed steps 1-9 "reset FF printer setting" completed steps 1-4 haven't yet had the nerve to "Reset ALL FF printer settings" (too scared to mess with the prefs.js file, so far)


any ideas? thanks
