Hi, so I started learning to develop websites a while ago, and all was good. However, recently I've had an issue. When I make a change and I'd like to refresh the page, to see it how someone visiting for the first time would see it, the page reloads, however it's exactly the same. For example, I've got 2 buttons. When button 1 clicked, button 2 gets disabled. Refresh the page and... button 2 is still disabled. In other browsers, both buttons return to their "default state". Shift-clicking the reload button does in fact refresh the page as expected. But a normal click, even if the webpage was retrieved from cache, should at least refresh the page, right? I've tried refreshing firefox, so add-ons are not the issue, and this hasn't been an issue before, any help is appreciated.

Programming in PHP. kind of a form (actually it is not a form but it uses form elements - js is used to submit.) When submitting, data is stored in session variable, and the page is reloaded, same form is shown, with data modified (formattet different). This shows data the way the user typed them - not the way PHP formats them.

Useless.

And yes, I have verified, with a different display section, that PHP is actually doing what it's supposed to - but firefox does not display data in input lines, the way they are programmed - they do not display the programmed value, but the value the user typed last time.

Likewise the web tool, does not show the actual sourcecode, but a modified version of it. Selecting "View Source" does not give the same source as "Inspect element"....

Hello,

I hope this is the right forum to ask this question. I have a plugin that I have created. (XPI file). I am looking to push to a few client machines and install the plugin silently. I have administrative rights on the machines. One way I tried to do this was to create a folder in the ...\browser\extensions folder and name it with the ID of the plugin. Then I extracted the contents of the XPI file. Then I restarted the browser and the plugin was installed. However, it is disabled. Is there any way to make the plugin enabled or will the user always have to manually enable it?

Thanks

When I click on a link which is: osu://b/1006632

Firefox says:

The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (osu) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

You might need to install other software to open this address.

I have the program osu installed on my computer. How do I make the address in Firefox redirect to the osu program?

I created a program which adds a certificate to Firefox to communicate with a websocket at localhost. To use it with https, I had to add a certificate to certificate stores, including the one Firefox uses. To Firefox, the command used:

certutil.exe -d [cert8.db path] -A -t "TCu,Cuw,Tuw" -n [name] -i [crt path]

Friday I noticed that it stopped working. I add, no issue reported. I use -L, the certificate is there. I even looked at Tools > Options > Advanced > Certificates, and it is there. But Firefox keep saying it's not trustable. Already closed and opened the browser.

I saw there was a update 13th June. Does it changed something about certificates part?

Hi,

I have uploaded a new version of my website, and though I can access it with other browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Opera), Firefox will only load the old "under construction" picture and not my new site. I have tried clearing the cache, to no effect.

I have tried access the site from link, and get the construction picture - it's ONLY Firefox that does this...!!

Please advise. Thanks.

I created a javascript script that generates the mandlebrot set using P5.JS . It's worked fine for smaller versions, but now I want to try creating a large version to save as my desktop image, however Firefox keeps telling me: "a web page is slowing down your browser what do you want to do?" then giving me the choice between "wait" and "stop it". If I click wait, it will shortly ask me again. This is annoying for two reasons: I don't know if the script will continue if I don't click wait, and I want to just leave my computer for a few hours while it works stuff out, which I can't do if I constantly have to click wait and I don't need telling the browser is being slowed down, I know that will happen as a result of my script.

Is there anything I can do to get rid of this message for my specific page? Will Firefox continue to run my script if I don't click wait.

On my web page ( http://PSPLFriends.org/Photos_2016.htm ), I have a link to a popup, which is "imported" from a .js file (Photos_popup.js) Click the "Click here" line beneath the row of years in the "Photos from..." box to see the pop-up (I had to disable the Firefox pop-up blocker (Tools) option to display it).

For some reason, Firefox prepends the word 'write' at the top of the popup (see image).

No other functionality is affected, and it displays just fine, otherwise.

Neither Explorer nor Edge do this. I have no other browsers to test it with. My target audience prefers Firefox, but the site was originally designed for Explorer. I did my best to accommodate both, but, obviously, something is different between the two. I never noticed this issue during my tests, although I haven't checked it in years. The code is about 10 years old, and rarely changes. My recent changes were attempted "fixes" for this issue, but which changed absolutely nothing.

Style issues aside (no snarky comments about my stone age code, thank you very much!), ;) can anyone see a reason for this happening and recommend a simple fix?

I'm used to using Visual Studio 2015 so I'm used to using an IDE but I can't for the life of me able to type anything. Its like I'm just using a browser instead of using something I can develop web pages with (please don't ask if I'm familiar with VS2015, why don't I just keep using it? It's a sore subject with me.) I probably going to feel like a fool when you tell me how I can access the text editing function, but I can't do any editing. I'm typing this in the 32bit Firefox I've been using for years. instead of the Developer's Edition.

So, I built a small business web page on sitebuilder.com, and they gave me a free domain (lassis-ec.com) and this domain works perfectly, but on the other hand i bought the domain I want to use, (lassis.com.ec), attached it to the site in sitebuilder and published the page, and it loads perfectly well in Chrome and Internet Explorer, but when I want to load the page in Firefox it won´t load, and the message that shows is as follows:

Corrupted Content Error

The site at http://lassis.com.ec/ has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected.

   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Can someone please help me fixing this issue? Thanks a lot!

I have Windows 10 in my work pc and installed firefox quantum however the browser window does not act properly like other OS windows, the following issues I've noticed.

1. I cannot grab the window from the top bar to drag into another screen or move around when fully maximized 2. If I not fully maximize the windows I do not get the arrow to adjust it from the borders. 3. Sometimes If i fully maximize the minimize and maximize buttons disappear. 3. Sometimes if I minimize it I cannot maximize it back ever I have to kill the browser.

I have removed all my extensions and customizations from the browser. Tested in private window mode with same results. Checked the prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser and nothing changed.
