Posted comments on a blog (specifically Mail Online Peter Hitchen' Blog) frequently, but not always, fail to appear. Moderation can be excluded on the evidence that repeating the same comment later will sometimes succeed. Other people are clearly affected since there are sometimes complaints. I have the impression that comments made during 'office hours' are more likely to get through, but this by no means guarantees success. The problem seems to have got worse lately, though it was occassionaly evident from the beginning (3 or 4 months ago when I started to contribute).

 This could of course be entirely the fault of the blog side of the intercourse, but is there anything I can do on the hither side, as a user of Firefox, to mitigate or solve this problem?

Having updated before then had to search for problems caused by updates, last time it was the search bar increasing in size, I would like to ask what is in store if i update to 79.0? i have version 77.0.1 64 bit.

I seem to recall reading the problem with the search bar would be more pronounced in future versions. What changes have been made in v 79?

FF 77.0.1 64 bit.

Our computer did an automatic Mozilla update a few days and now the hyperlinks within emails in Outlook will not open in Firefox - an error message comes up saying Application not found.

We have repeatedly updated default programs in Outlook, Firefox and Microsoft Control Panel default applications - they keep reverting to Unknown Application upon restart.

We had a problem with pdf's not opening at all after the update as well and similar problem with it reverting after restart, however have fixed that (we think) through Adobe's settings.

Any idea what else we can try re hyperlinks?

Thanks

I did not usemy pc for a while. After about two months, I found out that Firefox account was requesting to log in again. But after logging in, I was surprised to see that all my account passwords had been deleted. Previously, I considered Firefox account and synced passwords to be the safest way, but there is no place left for trust. It is regrettable...

When I open Firefox then go to bookmarks and select a site, they open as expected. However, when I go to my emails bookmark and click on it, the screen refreshs but does not change. In order to open my emails I have to click on the bookmark a second time, then it opens as it should. The exception to this is that if I go to any other bookmarked site first then from that site, go to and click on the emails bookmark, it opens normally at the first click.

I've tried refreshing Firefox as per the instructions but that didn't fix the problem. This seems to have started after Firefox updated itself the last time. I have made no changes to my Firefox settings so I'm not sure as to why this glitch is suddenly surfaced.

I'm trying to access this site www.foodnetwork.com and always en up on www.tudiscovery.com/foodnetwork which is not what I want. I don't know when Discovery started the IP redirect because I could access the original Food Network site without any problem until last year. Is there a way to avoid this redirect in Firefox because the only solution I found so far is using TorBrowser. Thank you

Hello All,

I've been having random firefox customization resets. I'm calling it random because I can't spot a patten for when it happens. Its been happening for months. Restarting firefox and this pc doesn't seem to cause it. But shutting down for a longer period of time seems like its more likley to happen, I'm talking 7+ hours.

Whats getting reset

  • Welcome to Firefox tab opens
  • Firefox Privacy Notice tab opens
  • Theme is reset but is still marked as selected
  • Addons are reset but still installed/enabled
  • Tab/Home Options reset
  • Layout of file menu reset (downloads,home,reload,addons,ect)

What I've tried

  • Firefox refresh (A week ago, I loaded back the same addons I had before, not sure if they could be doing this)
  • Check the prefs.js is not locked/readonly
  • I don't have a user.js

Is Firefox slowing my Win 7 down, with all you've been adding? I've started cutting cable so went from Comcast to Frontier. Supposed to be 500mbps with ethernet, with Frontier. It is with my laptop, Win 8.1, but desktop is 172 upload & 105 upload. Even with the laptop it gets locked up often when commenting on FoxNews.com articles. Again, the desktop worked good with Comcast. Don't know what that speed was. Thx, Ross

Hi, My Firefox and Thundebird internet download / upload speed is slow. I I try with Chrome download speed, it is 7-10Mb up and down. If do same with Firefox, then it is different. Many times it is 0,2Mb, but some time also 5-6Mb Usually upload are faster and it is 5Mb. (Use Chrome, then always faster) It seems to me as random, because many times speed OK and many times not OK. If compare test result with Chrome, then always slow.

I use ESET virus control and try to test it without virus control, but same result.

Also in Thundebird HTML load are slow. Small picture in e-mail can reach 30 sec.

I try to change different things in options, but no result.

Can anyone help me with this?

Hi. I'm a user of OpenVPN which uses TAP (a virtual network adapter) to establish VPN connections. Sometimes I need to switch VPN on/off when browsing websites, but I didn't find options like "select a network adapter to use" within Firefox. Currently the only solution is to connect/disconnect OpenVPN to switch VPN on/off, but it's quite inconvenient for me.

I've tried searching for add-ons about this, but a possible one named "FoxyProxy" has dropped this feature recently because of the changes about Firefox API, so I think my problem can be no longer solved by add-ons.

Any solutions to this? Can I have this feature provided by Firefox with updates if there isn't any workaround for now?

Firefox v69.0 Whenever I click on one of the matches returned from a search, or click on an embedded link, Firefox forever highlights that selection even though I don't want to be reminded months later that I had looked at that site. This is irksome because I can't ever get a clean slate for doing searches. Every similar search will yield a page full of highlighted links I may have used in the past on a topic that is only tangentially related. Also, since this highlighting persists independently of clearing history it entails a severe privacy leak. If anybody who is authorized to use my machine suspects that I may have an interest in, say, pizza dough, they need only do a search for pizza dough on my machine and any link I had ever selected in the past is highlighted, from which links it can be easily determined that I have both an interest in the topic at large and what aspect of the topic in particular appeals to me.

How do I disable this "feature", please?

I have a whole slew of tabs I use daily and Firefox is set to reload them whenever I restart Firefox. Now with version 78 it tells me it has to reinstall and won't keep my tabs, in other words I have to waste time setting all 200 of them up again. Several times a day it nags me to update and there is no option to tell it to Shut Up. If Firefox can't be bothered to provide smoother upgrades, I can't be bothered to upgrade.

After update to 79.0 version, (on Win 7), the cursor totally disappear, an so it's really unconfotable to identify what I'm doing... Now it's possible to identify the cursor position only selecting some caracter, using mouse or case key + arrow. I tried to find some question on the web, and founded to set something in the "about:config" system, but in my list, for example, don't appear the "ui.caretWidth" row. I saw this problem appeared in 2017 too. (It appear NOW, for me...) I don't think to be the last person to use win 7... Can someone helps me?
