Hello, I recently wanted outside links to be opened in private mode in default. I found solution here. It was to change in some flag in entries in regedit (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxURL-308046B0AF4A39CB\shell\open\command and FirefoxHTML from -url to -private-window. It works great but Firefox started asking to be my default browser despite being it. As if entry "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -url"%1" as whole defined if this is my default browser (with url flag) and not only location of Firefox. For now I just unchecked Firefox to check if its my default browser. Am I missing something?

when I don't have any tabs open and I open a tab and close it again without going to a website the Firefox tab page shows up on the original web page I was on and won't change. I can hit the back button or the refresh button or type in a new website and the tab page stays on the screen. the only way to get rid of it is to close firefox

When having a png, pdf, jpeg, gif etc. open, it Firefox would usually show a little icon for it on the tab bar, showing you what image is opened on it without having to be on the tab (this only worked when the image wasn't too big or the there weren't too many tabs open at once). However, these icons don't show up anymore at all since the last update. I tried refreshing the tabs several times, even closing them and opening them again, yet to no avail. This makes it difficult to know which one of the images you have opened is the one you need, as all tabs only show the title of the image, not what image is on it. I'd just like to know if this is a bug, if that feature was simply removed, or if there's some setting that I can enable to make them show up again.

Thanks in advance! :D

When I use email link in Firefox, Mac, Outlook an email pops up with the link, but when I try to add text to the message it takes me to the link.

I have tried the return button and moving the cursor and it always takes me to the link. When I return to the email I can add text.

Why haven't you blocked the micrsoft virus scan yet

when browsing through adult sites some links go to the MS virus scan page which stops you doing anything to close the window. To stop it you go to the Task manager and end firefox. this means you have killed all the windows open even if they are not affected. Surely in this day and age you can recognise it and block it? It does not lock up the computer only the window it is on but there are a lot of people that will not know how to get past it so I would really like you to look into this for us. THANK YOU

I have been troubleshooting profile related problems for a number of weeks, trying to see all my posts and replies. However I was able to see a display like the first image when I went to "troubleshooting information", then "open profile" Now when I do that I just see a bunch of files & folders in windows explorer like the second image. I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox but that hasn't fixed the problem.

I'm getting big blue advertisements in my URL bar on sites like reddit.com for some extension or another. Not that I ever asked for these, but I can't seem to turn them off?

A quick google led me to believe there was a tickbox under the 'general' settings in preferences, but I can't find anything. A search in about:config revealed nothing either. How do I hide these sadly in-built adverts?

Firefox now has ad blocker and it causes issues with sites I visit. I don't know how to modify it; I am not using in private browsing. It's on all the time.

I no longer see ads when I read email, look at a magazine or newspaper article etc. Some sites don't like this and won't let me view what's on them because I am blocking ads. I have looked at Options>Privacy and Security>Tracking Protection and it is not turned on. It is only on when I use a privacy window which I am not using. I have no idea where to look to be able to modify this. I have cookies enabled.

I will admit I have far fewer crashes now that the ads do not display in email and I am happy about that but when a site I belong to won't let me read there because ads are blocked that becomes a problem. Do I have any control over this feature? I only use Firefox on my pc that runs Win 7 Professional and I use version 60.3 esr 32 bit because I still run into situations where Java is required and it was explained in an earlier question that I should use Firefox esr because of this.
