FoxLingo seems to answer my problem of getting automatic page translation but it does not seem available. I have tried both ImTanslator and Page Translator Revised. They both corrupt the page they translate and page links fail.

Is their an Automatic Translator of webpages that works as well as Google?

We made some private movies with an older camera and these have the extension MOV. I uploaded them to the site of my wife. One of them:

http://www.aleksandra.nl/temp/BaltissenWianki.MOV

The main problem: when opening it with Firefox, it starts to play immidiatly, but without sound.

A second problem: FF starts the movie without asking me and I would like to change that behavior so that it asks me what to do with this file. I know it should be changed in options but "MOV" is not listed and I have no idea how to add it.

Thank you for you help!

Kind regards, Ruud Baltissen

Having updated before then had to search for problems caused by updates, last time it was the search bar increasing in size, I would like to ask what is in store if i update to 79.0? i have version 77.0.1 64 bit.

I seem to recall reading the problem with the search bar would be more pronounced in future versions. What changes have been made in v 79?

FF 77.0.1 64 bit.

Extended desktop, two different PCs, vertical layout.

Upon opening Firefox a white bar appears across the bottom of the top screen and the only way to get rid of it is to hit F11 (Fullscreen) twice. Minimizing, maximizing, restoring all have no effect - only taking it from a normal window to Fullscreen view (no menu bar or tabs), then back to a normal window works.

It happens on every new window opened and it doesn't matter which display it is opened on, the bar will be there if moved to the bottom screen, until F11 is pushed for that instance of Firefox twice.

This has happened before and it would seem to go away on later updates, but it is currently visible on every computer I have that has one display above another.

Is Firefox slowing my Win 7 down, with all you've been adding? I've started cutting cable so went from Comcast to Frontier. Supposed to be 500mbps with ethernet, with Frontier. It is with my laptop, Win 8.1, but desktop is 172 upload & 105 upload. Even with the laptop it gets locked up often when commenting on FoxNews.com articles. Again, the desktop worked good with Comcast. Don't know what that speed was. Thx, Ross

I have a whole slew of tabs I use daily and Firefox is set to reload them whenever I restart Firefox. Now with version 78 it tells me it has to reinstall and won't keep my tabs, in other words I have to waste time setting all 200 of them up again. Several times a day it nags me to update and there is no option to tell it to Shut Up. If Firefox can't be bothered to provide smoother upgrades, I can't be bothered to upgrade.

How do I remove the "remove extension" button from the context menu I don't want my any of my apps deleted in any way, shape, or form, other than using "Ctrl+Shift+A" to access the add-ons menu. In case you are wondering what add-ons I want to protect "LeechBlock" and an obscure add-on called "eScan Web Blocker."

At least as recently as Developer Edition 77.0b5. Neither the keyboard shortcut nor the UI "x" button closes the mode. This is developer edition 77.0b5 on MacOS 10.14.6. For a handful of beta versions it seems inconsistent (sometimes worked sometimes didn't work) but now it seems like this happens every time. I'm not sure when I first noticed the issue.

Reinstalling the Firefox application in the macOS way (move Firefox.app from the application folder into trash and move a current (non Beta Version of) Firefox into the application folder) does not work. Firefox somehow remembers that the Beta Channel is active. It will update to the recent Beta on startup/restart.

I did not try to remove all files created by Firefox, as I do not want to loose my current profile.

While there seems to be documentation about working with multiple versions of Firefox or how to work with multiple profiles: I am not interested in installing multiple versions of Firefox simultaneously or work with multiple profiles.

I simply want to replace my Firefox Beta with the current release... (There may be a problem with profiles being not compatible with an older version of Firefox. However, I feel like it should be possible to stay on the Beta (without updating) until a newer version releases in the release channel to avoid this issue.)

There does not seem to be any documentation on how to unenroll from the Firefox Beta on macOS. (I googled / used duckduckgo a lot (I searched for a solution every now and then over the time span of multiple months) and nothing relevant turned up.)

PS: Good job on Firefox for macOS; it replaced safari (which had deprecated a lot of addons at that time) as soon as the beta with improved (macOS) battery life released (the reason why I installed a beta version.)

This is a new development. Happening on all of my Mac OSX machines. Whenever I download a file from Firefox, the downloaded file now has write permissions set for group and other:

-rw-rw-rw-

instead of the more reasonable read-only permissions for group and other:

-rw-r--r--

This is a new development: all of my downloads started displaying these fully writable permissions about a month ago. Happening on multiple computers, so this is tied to Firefox v77.
