Hello,

A few weeks ago something changed in my Firefox browser where popup boxes do not show. For example, if I want to download a file, the pop-up box with the options for downloading do not show. If I want to attach or upload a file, the popup does not show. Even if I want to change a setting in my my Firefox account, I cannot if it requires a popup box.

If I restart my computer (not the browser), the problem goes away, but eventually it happens again.

It is really disruptive. Now I have to do about 60% of my work in another browser. All of my account info, bookmarks, and passwords are saved with my Firefox account, so I would prefer to be able to use Firefox. Any suggestions on how to fix? I should also not--this has persisted despite updating.

Inconvenience with printer settings (Firefox and Thunderbird)

I am often switching office and change my system default printer always first when I am in a new place. I learned from the community here that the right thing to do for having Firefox/Thunderbird follow this choice is set print_printer to 'default'. The problem is that this does only work for a while. As soon as I use the selection dropdown in the printing dialog (e.g. to exceptionally select the PDF printer) it will overwrite 'default' by that printer. The consequence is that from that time on I have to manually select the printer or got to the config editor again to set 'default'. Is there any simple solution I overlooked?

If not can you tell me how I can make a feature request? A simple solution would be to include something like 'System Default' in the dropdown list in the printing dialog. Although for my taste, it would be better to have the selection in the printer dialog only temporary and return to the previous printer selection for the next printing.

Hi, I am a photographer, and am currently working on my website. I don't know how this happened, but I noticed a mysterious Pin It icon on my site early January. I had a Pinterest account (unused), which I deleted, thinking I could get rid of this pesky thing. Now I have no Pinterest account, but 2 Pin It icons. Bizarrely, they only show up on Firefox, not Chrome. (I use Firefox 99% of the time.) Could you please advise me? Thank you very much, Anne Saint-Pierre

I'm trying to clear my cache for Firefox, as my gmail is currently not fully loading content. I'm following the prompts in the Firefox menu, and it's telling me that I should click Firefox in the top bar and select Preferences, but Preferences is not one of the choices in the drop-down box, so I can't get to Clear Cache.

I downloaded Firefox to my Mac book pro but when I do a search it is still Google that searches and I do not want to search with Google my hope was that I would search with Firefox. Firefox is set as my default browser. I use a VPN and Google keeps making me fill in captchas before I can do a search and sometimes I have to complete up to 5 captchas asking how many squares have traffic light etc. So in short how do I set up Firefox so it is Firefox that completes the search.

Sincerely

Terry

I just downloaded the new Mac Ventura update, and when I opened Firefox all my previous tabs opened up, but my Toolbar completely disappeared, as in there is an empty space for it, and they show when I click on Bookmarks, but not on the actual browser window. The same thing happened with my Add-on extensions, all disappeared, and they're not even showing in my library. When I tried to download them again online, every single one gave me a red error message "An unexpected error occurred during installation." Please advise what's going on and/or how I can fix this to get my normal browser back. Thanks

Hi there,

I have just set up a new Wordpress site, which is currently in mantenance mode. For some reason, i think becuase I was using FF Develoer Edition for the domain nam DNS set up, I just cannot access the site. The maintanance page shows, but is broken, and the Wordpress admin page is inaccessible, giving the "The page isn’t redirecting properly" error.

I can access the site just fine in another browser, including regular Firefox, on my computer, or any other. It's just tied to this one FF Dev Edition. I have tried all suggested fixes regarding clearing Cookies & Cache, deleting all history, setting up custom cookie tracking, using "always use private browsing mode", to no avail. I've even deleted & reinstalled FFDE. I'm on Mac & have also used Terminal to purge my DNS cache. I just can't access this URL:

https://www.advicerooms.co.uk/wp-admin

As mentioned, this works just fine in any other browser.

Any ideas? FFDE is my web developing browser of choice & I need to start working on this site, but will have to drop FFDE for another browser now if I can't sort this.

Hope someone can help!

Many thanks in advance

My firefox updated and all of my passwords are gone and I am logged out of all accounts. How can I recover them. None of my other saved mozilla profiles (in about:profiles) had the missing password data.

I have key and logins.json folders on my computer and I have most of my saved passwords on a mozilla firefox account on my ipad. It's the same login profile but they are not sync'd and I am afraid sync-ing will delete the passwords.

How can I get the json passwords or the ipad passwords onto my most updated version of firefox?

Yesterday for most of the day Yahoo mail was working fine. Last night I was able to pull up my emails, but all the controls were not working, Can't delete, arrow up or down, settings won't come up. It's like all the tabs are not highlighted to click on. I haven't done any updates, nothing changed. It's not Yahoo, works fine in Chrome.
