Is there a problem with the forum software? Last answers are mentioned in the bottom line of the questions but they are not displayed and they are not counted in the top line. This is inconsistent information. Example the question "embedded grafics are not displayed" which counts 0 answers in the topline but mentions a last answer 18 minutes ago. But this last answer is not displayed, if one opens the question.

Now iOS let’s you set different default browsers I was hoping it would be possible to then open links in the gmail app with Firefox. However when you try to select a default browse within the gmail app Firefox doesn’t even appear on the list, even if you have it installed and set as the system default - the only options it presents are chrome or safari...am I missing something or is this just an issue with the gmail app either awaiting an update or trying to force me to use chrome?

I have started getting alerts from Norton 360 regarding "malicious browser extension activity 4" from a website called https://tribedone.org. I have no idea what the website is (I can't reach it) but the alert is showing very often and Norton requires a shutdown each time it detects and repairs the issue. Any suggestions please? Screenshot attached.

I have recently noticed when I copied web address which was in Japanese after copying on a note pad or even in the MS outlook email it turned like this %E3%82%B9%E3%. Before it was copied in the same language such as English or Japanese. When I look at the address in the browser it is in Japanese but if I copy and paste it turn in to %E3%82%B9%E3%. What could be the cause? Is it normal. Any guidance/help will be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

How do I set the default upload directory

If I upload a file for an email attachment, google drive upload, etc when I first select "browse" for the file it opens File Explorer in the Desktop directory.

How do I change that to default to the directory I always work from, say for example C:\tmp.

I've seen numerous questions about this with answers that it opens the last directory used, which is true if I do it multiple times, but if I close Firefox and restart it, when I select "browse" it again defaults to the Desktop.

I've also seen answers saying it is controlled by the site being uploaded true. Again this is absolutely not true. I do everything from C:\tmp. Downloads, uploads, editing, searching, etc. And every time I upload a file after starting Firefox fresh after a reboot, again, it defaults to the Desktop even though I'm on the same site (gmail) I was when I last uploaded a file.

As far as the answers saying that was the last directory used, that is false. I do not use the desktop for anything. Not storing icons, not downloading files, not uploading files. I have never uploaded a file from Desktop in my life.

So can anyone answer this without saying 'last directory used' or 'controlled by the website'?

Please can someone tell me how to prevent Firefox from printing blocks of background colour around text when printing while in High Contrast mode (ie with the 'Override the colours specified by the page with your selections above' option set to 'Always' or 'Only with High Contrast themes'). It is wasting a lot of ink and makes it difficult to read the printed page. I just want it to print the text, not the background colour from my display settings. The 'Print background (colour and images)' option is off.

So I've found that Firefox doesn't seem to detect my headset microphone if it's plugged in while Firefox is already running. Going into a Google Meet meeting, it asks me if I want to allow the use of my microphone, and only shows a device that was plugged in already (a Rift S headset microphone) - unplugging, replugging, and refreshing the page all have no effect.

If I close down and restart Firefox completely with the headset plugged in, it works.

After searching, apparently there was a similar bug that appeared around Firefox 36 (I think?) that was fixed soon after - In any case, it seems to have reared its head again.

I'm ising Firefox on a Windows 10 machine. Lately any time I open a new window it insists on opening several dozen tabs from previous sessions. I cleaned the cache. No change. I rebooted. NO change. I uninstalled it using an installer (Revo) that supposedly checks for all kinds of leftover files. I then rebooted. I saw no signs of it on my machine. I downloaded a fresh copy and installed from scratch. When I open the initial page it's fine. As soon as I open a new page all the old things are back in a gazillion little tabs. It's kind of annoying. Not to mention the time it takes to close everything by hand.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hi,

Pages don’t seem to be updating properly on our website https://efi.int on Firefox.

Here’s what you get on firefox: boxes in the wrong order and not formatting properly, even though I’ve cleared the cache (on the EFI website CMS, and on Firefox on my browser!)

It happens in Firefox in MacOS and Windows version 82 and 82.0.1. For Chrome, Edge and Safari works OK.

I am using Firefox version 82.0.2 (with three extensions: Ghostery, HTTP Header Live and Noscript) and JavaScript. In JavaScript I has used the href "http://localhost/.../.../...?webnvg=n&webvrs=tst" and changed the webnvg parameter from 'n' to 'y' by the command: window.location.replace("/.../.../webnvg=y&webvrs=tst"); But I still got the same error "Blocked by DevTools", whereafter the current url is used (i.e. with the webnvg parameter 'n'. What should I have done wrong?
