I use an online litho and digital printer here in the UK and in My Account I have a list of past jobs and the ability to download VAT invoices. In Safari the download invoice link works but in FF it doesn't. The only Add ons I have switched on are AdBlock Plus and 1Password. In the attached screenshot you can see the blue icons on the right. URL is https://www.route1print.co.uk/ [EDIT] : FF is version 67.0 by the way.

I try to click on a link in an e-mail to unsubscribe and nothing happens. It used to work but no longer does. I clicked on a link and it gave some options. I apparently chose the wrong one because ever since this happens I click on a link to unsubscribe and nothing happens. How do I get back to where the link works?

I check, daily, a forum, quiltingboard.com. In the last few days Firefox opens it in a new format which I do not like. I cannot change settings, etc. I have contacted the moderators and they have not changed anything. Opening it in different browsers gives me the original, correct format. I would love a solution to this.

Newsletters I have been receiving for years abruptly stopped coming on Saturday, 5/18/19. I've been the on the phone since Sunday with different customer care representatives and they don't have an answer. I have unsubscribed and resubscribed to the newsletters several times, but that doesn't help and I'm wondering if Firefox could be blocking my access.

Hi, Since the add on problems, i've been trying to dowload the fix for firefox version 52.9.0 (xp32bit) How ever what ever i try, i get a message "unable to dowload due to connection failure" and tried everything, even re-installing firefox, still the same. Is there a way to dowload the fix, save in and run it as a file ? It is pretty annoying as i can't add any add ons and don't know what to do if i can't even download the fix from the website. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Phil.

Firefox 67 is suppose to block fingerprinting when activated in the security/privacy settings. Well, try this french site : https://amiunique.org and see what can be read from your system and browser. I'm wondering how can it be possible to block fingerprinting other than giving false/random/generic data and be like everyone, not unique...

Until I updated the browser this morning I would normally:

    Click the icon on the left of the address bar (where the URL is shown).
    While still holding the mouse button down, move the pointer to the desktop, then release the mouse button. The       shortcut will be created.

This no longer works. Any suggestions. Using Windows 7.

As stated now all my saved passwords, website histories and everything are now gone and it now says default profile 1 release and I don't use your beta channel either. So in the span of 20 minutes I went from updated, to updated a second time to release 1 and there is nothing in my profile now.

Please tell me that you store the default profile somewhere so it can be imported. I always relied on Firefox to this moment and always thought Google need to learn how to deliver what their users want and not what they want but right now so angry about what has happened.

After updating to Version 67 it took 2 minutes for the Mozilla starting-page to open. So I deleted Firefox and reloaded it without success. I deleted the add-ons, the Cookies, Caches to no success. Finally I found that my profile could be the reason and I deleted the whole Firefox-Folder completely to start from anew. When I download the new Version comes "either you have no profile or the use is denied" and everything stops. If someone starts the first time with Firefox he would not have a profile either. So how can I get back using Firefox as my browser again?

Thanks for your tips and help in Advance.

Firefox did an automatic update and in the process deleted itself from my computer. When I click on the shortcut I get an error message: The item firefox.exe that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly. I rebooted my computer but the program is completely gone. How do I get it and all of my bookmarks, etc. back again? I'm using IE (ugh) to access Mozilla's web site.

Hi Team,

I have just installed Linux Mint 19 alongside Windows 7, and installed Linux Firefox 67. Windows also has 67. I pointed the Linux Firefox to the Windows Profile file, and it looked exactly like the Windows version. When I went to access websites that have stored login names and password, the Login names were there, but the passwords did not show. When I entered a password again, and asked it to Save, it proceeded and logged in. When I logged off, and tried to login again, the Login name was there, but no password - had to enter it again. I have looked through all of the relevant posts in Support, and tried several options, but none work. Would appreciate some assistance is solving this one please. Thanks plml

Since Firefox 67, in Add-on manager, your shown what installed extensions would work in private browsing:

Also, this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/extensions-private-browsing?as=u&utm_source=inproduct

Yet the add-on in question, Lastpass does auto connect on browser close, as it requires cookies.. so i must use "custom setting" with the only option selected "Clear history when firefox closes" as the equivalent to PB.


However i need more info on what it reports in Add-on manager... what is Mozilla saying "This addon "should work" ? or "it will work, but there could be poblem when you restart browser" ?

Hello to All: I need some help. About 15-20 days ago, I had to re-install my Windows 7 (32-bit) OS and all software including Mozilla Firefox Quantum (32-bit). Since installing Mozilla Firefox Quantum 67.0 (32-bit) - when I use a "TAB" to listen to streaming: Live internet radio or Podcast, all is good. The problem is when I open a second "TAB" to surf or view info. When I start to click on anything (ex: next page), the first "TAB" playing the Podcast will stop playing and return to the beginning of the Podcast. This only happen when opening a second "TAB". This never happen before. Can it be the new update to level "67.0" or a bad installation of Firefox? Should I un-install Firefox and then re-install Firefox?
