I have tried repeatedly to add an Ad Blocker to Firefox (as I have in the past) but they do not work. I have looked for them after downloading but cannot find them on Firefox. Can anyone help me with this? Ad Blacker worked fine on my old iMac but not on the new one. I am not getting ads on my home page but I am getting two blocks of "code" where the ads would normally appear.

Thank you.

Hi, Since this morning, for some unknown reason, when I place my cursor over a text section in my browser, one or two seconds later a rectangle appears below with the same text inside (it does so with ALMOST all text, regardless of the fact that it is or isn't clickable, apparently, but it does not work with some text here and there – for instance on this very page). It does not correspond to anything I've (voluntarily) asked for, I haven't found anything in the FF settings that relates to this, and I do not think it has anything to do with the plugins I use, though it does correspond to my installing this add-on this morning: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-suspender/. Which I've temporarily deactivated... but the popup rectangles keep appearing. Does anyone know why these popups have started appearing all of a sudden, and can anyone help me figure out how to get rid of them? Thanks in advance. Best, jpg

Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want

I just tried today, but I don't know when it started, but all of the streaming services I have access to are not working in Firefox (on MacOS 11.2.2, Firefox 86.0). They give the following errors:

Disney+ - Something went wrong. Please try again. If the problem persists, visit the Disney+ Help Center (Error Code 83)

Prime - We're experiencing a problem playing this video. For assistance, please go to www.amazon.com/videohelp.

Netflix - Pardon the interruption. This title is not available to watch instantly. Pleast try another title. - 1044. Error Code F7121-1331

I've tried multiple videos on each service, all produce the same errors. I've rebooted my machine. I've flushed all cache and cookies. I've tried in safe mode.

Youtube and Twitch both work. Strangely enough the "Watch Trailer" on Prime works. On the same machine Chrome and Safari play all services fine.

This makes me think it's either a privacy guard setting or a DRM setting. I've also checked my media.mediasource settings and they are all default. Play DRM-controlled content is also enabled.

Anyone have any help or other things I can check?

Since the new update with the change in cookie management, login at my school is not working. We use a number of different sites that pull from the Stanford login cookies. For example stanfordhealthcare.cloud-cme.com uses my login.stanford.edu cookie to function, and so it no longer functions and login is impossible.

I know the new system has a bypass built in for known login services, but what about the myriad different independent SSO systems used by schools?

Firefox automatically starts itself on start-up every time. I don't want it to. If I want it on, I'll click on it.

I cannot seem to retrieve any of my Firefox data. My bookmarks, plugins, login and password data are just gone. Years of data are gone. There is no "old profile data" and oddly enough none of the profiles have anything in them anyways. I have tried everything suggested and NOTHING has worked. Most people have no clue about the files and folders and definitely shouldn't be moving stuff around as most of the threads have suggested. What is a key3 or 4 file? Why should I have to move it? Where does one move it to? None of the threads on this topic are helpful and there's no way to just ask a person who works here? Considering this seems to happen to a lot of people it should be made much easier to do. I can't even import my old logins from Safari. Is years of my data just gone? If Im signed into my Firefox account shouldn't it be there, or what is the point of having one? I need a very easy solution to this extremely frustrating issue.
