Could someone explain in simple english what a mailto link is and why it is important. Why is it showing up in Outlook in my firefox browser when using outlook. All I have read so far is so full of jargon to be of no use to me.

I tried to register at link text and when I entered my email addy it told me that email address is already in use. I tried my secondary email addy and was told same thing. I don't remember username and for that matter, don't remember a previous registration. So how can I contact admin at site or who do I contact to resolve issue or what do I so now?

Please help me bring up my home page for channels. I was downloading Amazon kids and it was loading so I left the room for about 10 minutes. I came back and the screensaver was so I clicked round button on remote. Nothing happened so I checked cables they seemed fine. So I turned off tv and on again and a blue line came up at the bottom of the screen.

I go to Norton, sign in, then go to another sigh-in button and the screen just flashes. Click it several times and just see the screen flash. Norton logged in remotely and went through some hoops but they came up with the same thing. Cleared the cache, history, no-go. They tell me that is is a problem with Firefox and not them. (and recommended an expensive organization to get help from) This is a computer I just reset to factory and reinstalled completely. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

My ISP is BT (UK) and I have 5 BT Mail email addresses. On the mail log-in page there is a sign-in box where I can choose which email address I wish to open. Unfortunately there are several instances of my main email address. Some with old passwords some from I know not where. I need to delete all those except the current one. I have tried clearing the cache and data but to no effect. The duplicates do not appear if I use a different browser, so it would seem to be a Firefox issue.

Hallo,

I have: Firefox 102.0 (dark mode)

OS: - Win10, 64-bit (20H2 up to date)

addons: - Adblock Plus - uBlock Origing - Concent Blocker - Video DownloadHelper

In the last days I couldn't create shortcuts on SOME pages with drag and drop as I did usually. Today I formated the PC to start fresh, the problem remains!

examples: - https://flogarecords.com/store/shop/lp-mlp/sakis-tolis-among-the-fires-of-hell-lp-red-white-haze-exclusive/ When I try to create a shortcut with drag&drop a folder is created named: "SAKIS TOLIS - AMONG THE FIRES OF HELL LP (RED" And the shortcut is included inside.

- https://www.pronews.gr/amyna-asfaleia/politiki-prostasia/kolasi-sto-porto-germeno-ekkenonetai-o-mytikas/ When I try to create a shortcut with drag&drop a white file is created named: "Κόλαση στο Πόρτο Γερμενό" With size "0 byte", without extention.

The above are happening in SOME pages, not in all shortcuts. When I try to create the shortcuts on Opera they are created just fine. Perhaps that has to do with a bug in some update (windows or firfox)

I've just updated my iMac which uses mac OS Monterrey12.5. As a direct result I can no longer use the Mozilla search window on the Foxfire Homepage. It's still there but it won't allow you to enter information into the box. Is there either a way to restore the functionality of the search window or at least disable it in settings so I don't have to see the window and be reminded that it no longer works? Thank you in advance for whatever assistance or answers you can provide.

I have it set in setting to open in Firefox. it is continuing to automatically download all PDFs and it is eating into my data! please help. I have to get this to stop or I will no longer be able to click on any PDFs with Firefox anymore. I have also tried setting it to always ask, but if I do that and then tell it to open, then it STILL DOWNLOADS THE FILE! I cannot understand why anyone would ever want files they just wanted to read to just randomly download. I am a genealogy researcher and used to click on dozens of PDFs a day to read, now I can't with Firefox or I won't have internet for half the month after I use up my data. There has to be someway to stop this, I don't like other browsers, but right now, if it involves a PDF I have to use a different browser. (also quite annoying to have to delete multiple files that I never wanted to download - I was using Firefox to pay a bill and downloaded it SIX times) Please help!

I have a SonicWall firewall on our office network. I can log into it from an office workstation, but when I try to export/save its Configuration I get the "Secure Connection Failed" message. I've searched for a solution to this but have only turned up two:

1) Disabling SSL Scanning Feature in Your Antivirus Software.

2) By Changing the SSL Settings On Firefox

Neither of these are desirable. For option 1, this computer is using Windows Defender, and disabling SSL scanning is not a feature that I know of. In either case, these solutions are across-the-board and would affect all pages I go to whereas the only one I'd like to get to is this SonicWall device located on our internal LAN.

I recall that Firefox used to allow you to make an exception on a per-site basis. Is this no longer possible? Is there any other way to accomplish this without disabling SSL validation for all sites?

When I opened Firefox I received a "news message" that makes no sense to me. How can I revert Firefox to its former usefulness? There is something about the former installation of Firefox being undisturbed, but I cannot find that installation. Apparently this has something to do with sync-ing my desktop Firefox with other installations -- I've less than zero interest in sync-ing.

What happened to the bookmarks I had stored in the bookmark bar? How do I get those back?

Hello


I have a problem with Firefox 87 that I am completely stumped by. Since I have updated Windows to version 20H2, my audio in Firefox became all muddy, as if only bass tones come through. Speech is completely inaudible and impossible to understand. This is a problem unique to Firefox, as other applications such as Spotify or MS Edge sound fine.

Could this be a compatibility problem with my sound card? (Creative SoundBlaster ZxR) This feels unlikely as it worked before...


Any tips? Thanks

I like the pocket suggestions underneath the the search bar but cannot easily read what I type in the address bar & do not want to be forced to. FF flatly calls this better which is flat out, arrogant none sense as the font size is too small for so many & only causes eye & overall psychological strain. Must I permanently switch to google absent all pocket suggestions to achieve search & navigation in the search bar, in the middle of the page? Seriously. There does not appear to be an option to do so as before. Not allowing the option is at least arrogant & short sighted. Is there any chance FF will show more respect for its users in this respect & allow it?
