HOW TO BLOCK SITES & RESTORE THE LIST I HAD ACCRUED THAT "SOMEONE" DELETED FOR ME - I SUSPECT FIREFOX

Changes are being Made to my Firefox Preferences - Latest is my list of Blocked Sites got Erased and Now there is no block key

I don't want to add any sites to ALLOW, its already set to do that.

I strongly suspect that Firefox is responsible for my vanished long-collected lists of sites that are a total pain because there is no longer a way to BLOCK SITES.

Sites keep popping up and so I want to add them LIKE I USED TO DO but PRESTO - option is gone.

HOW CONVENIENT that just after somebody deleted my list of undesirable nuisance sites FIREFOX also has changed/hidden any ability to ADD BLOCK SITES

I am really ticked because I have read tech articles that talk about Firefox implementing or already installing updates on their own accord. If I ever get full proof of that me and firefox are gone.

I WANT THE ABILITY TO BLOCK SITES - what difference does it make to Firefox if I block annoying sites unless they are becoming the enemy.

Firefox has been causing some problems recently such as youtube videoes won't load. I asked the forum's help but it didn't solve anything. So I want to reinstall Firefox to check if it fixes the problem. However, I want everything to be kept the same like bookmarks, history, and such. Is there anyway I can save the data and still reinstall firefox?

Hello Guys,

I have a problem with Firefox and i can't seem to fix it, i even tried removing all addons and disabling my antivirus.

I went to this microsoft link https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-and-print-mailing-labels-for-an-address-list-in-Excel-d9ae0b60-9fd0-4a90-9da9-0ec3a4b011b2

And I tried printing but it only shows 3 pages and they are not correct, I tried print preview and have the same problem only 3 broken pages show up, yet it is a large page so not sure why it is happening.

I tried print to pdf using nitro and soda pdf and they have the same issue, its like firfox is preventing the page to be properly opened and printed. It happens on some other sites as well but its the above page i really need.

I uploaded a pdf file of what the page shows up as if i try to print, print preview and print to pdf, It always looks the same which is incorrect. Here is the link to the pdf file so you can see the issue, you help would be greatly appreciated.

https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=98FBB342AC6E566D!498&authkey=!AMPCc2uohe_Bga4&ithint=file%2cpdf

Edit: Ok update on this problem, I created a new firefox profile and the new profile has same problem it does not print all pages, show all pages in print preview and does not allow print to pdf to capture all pages.


Thanks in advance Fred

Youtube videos won't play in Firefox

Youtube videos were playing fine in Firefox yesterday, but not today. I get a perpetual loading circle on a black screen. if i hover over the bar underneath it'll show me thumbnail captures of the video as i move my mouse across; similarly, if i drag my mouse while holding down, it'll show a horizontal grid of thumbnails superimposed over a bigger picture.

Chrome plays the videos fine still, so I'm sure it's not a plugin issue or it'd be affecting Chrome also. Plugins are all up to date, for what it's worth. Was already using the most recent Firefox update before this, also.

One thing I found coincidental is that this seemed to happen after I followed the instructions on this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/vine-and-other-html5-videos-wont-play?esab=a&as=aaq because Vines and some other videos were showing static images instead of videos. After I toggled the setting to "false", some hours later I went to open Youtube and none of the videos were showing. I changed the windows media foundation setting back to "true" then, but it made no difference. After that, here's all I tried:

1. cleared cache and cookies. 2. ran firefox in safe mode; videos still wouldn't play. 3. disabled all extensions; videos still wouldn't play. 4. turned off the hardware acceleration for firefox, to no effect. 5. deactivated plugins to no effect.

Something I noticed: when right-clicking on the video player, at the bottom of the list is an "about HTML5 player" option. I remembered that to say "About Flash Player" instead in the past.

Because of this, I searched "firefox youtube using html5" and one of the first results was this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/youtube-all-html5

I installed it and now videos are suddenly playing again, and if I right click videos it instead says "about flash player" at the bottom again now instead of HTML5. Disabling the add-on causes videos to not work again.

So, my question now is, what's the cause of this? I shouldn't have to install an add-on just for Youtube videos to play in Firefox, especially since they were playing fine before.

After recent update of FF from version 29.0 to 35.0 the bookmarks "show all bookmarks" displays only a couple of entries but I have a couple of hundred (200+) entries when selecting just "bookmarks". "show all" was working properly in previous version.

Attached screenshots show the entries in bookmarks and what is being displayed in "show all"

This prevents me from re-arranging my bookmarks in FF.

How to fix?





ff 35.0 under openSuSE 13.1, KDE 4.11.2

I used to be able to view retreat videos from Tricycle magazine. However, they have apparently switched to Vimeo, and I can't get any of them to work now. I even went to the Vimeo site, and none of the sample videos there work in Firefox, either! I really don't want to have to go to Internet Explorer. Can you help?
