It's on an older machine but updating my hardware is not an option right now. I don't have this problem on any of my newer machines. I've been using firefox exclusiverly on multiple machines for more than 15 years and I have never had this or any issues until now.

I use Firefox to download a file from Internet by means of the command Shell of VBA, i.e :

Shell ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" & " -url https://FileName.exe")

and curiously sometimes the FileName is downloaded without problems and the next time I try to download it, it appears a warning indicating Firefox has closed unexpectedly. And of course, the next time I try to download the file, it is dowloaded again without problems and the story is repeated continuously.

Hello,

I am currently using Kaspersky Internet Security 2019 on both computers, and on mine it updated to the 2020 version, and I went to the Kaspersky forum and asked how do I re-install the 2019 version and I was given the help, however, now I have lost the Kaspersky Protection 2019 Add-On on Firefox, and when I look to see about installing the Kaspersky, it isn't listed on Firefox anymore.

Where can I find the 2019 Add-On?

Thank you,

Just recently when I am on yahoo mail, I randomly get logged off. When I try to log back in, I have to change my password to succeed. I am running out of ideas for password as I have changed it dozens of times. This did not occur immediately after an update. Just out of curiosity, I did system restore to undo the last ff update, but still happened either way. I went thru deleting all cookies, stored passwords and cleared browser history. None of this helped. Virus scans showed negative. I have called att/yahoo tech support and they could not fix this. I have opened my mail in IE and do not have this problem using that browser. But come, I hate IE. So I have windows 7 professional. Not sure of all the pertinent system info needed but appreciate any suggestions.

Links from Gmail open a tab in Gmail (https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/.), rather than the relevant website page. If I click this tab, then my Gmail account opens (duplicates) in the tab. On repeating the click (and doing so deliberately) on the hyperlink in the Gmail body, a tab does open with the relevant website page. This occurs haphazardly.

When downloading a file I always have to open it from the browser, unless it will appear as damaged. For example, after downloading a document "Study.doc" and NOT opening it from Firefox I always have two files in the Downloads folder — "Study.doc" which size is 0 kb and "Study.doc.part" which is exactly the size of the document. Therefore I cannot move it without first opening it even if I don't want to.

I am unable to log into my BT account using Firefox...That is BT as a whole not just emails.. All the detail are correct but I get the same message whenever I try to sign in. I've followed some instructions re; clearing cashed files etc but still nothing. I put in my email and password..tried manually as well. It opens fine in Google, so thought i'd reset my passwordand try again.. still does it. Have attached the image below even though all instructions were followed. Has been doing it for last 3 days. Have had no software updates or anything so at a total loss. Fortunatley I can still access emails etc. just a pain havingto shut down one browzer and open another to perform one task. Anybody any ideas

Cheers

The 76.01 update of Firefox has completely broken the audio function in my browser. Youtube and Yahoo Finance specifically. I have not checked further. Yes I know Windows 7 is not supported by Microsoft, but Firefox has claimed that it would support Windows 7 indefinitely. Yesterday when I opened Firefox a message said that audio and video might not work if I did not have DRM enabled. I checked and saw that I had DRM enabled, but audio did not work. A button in the message said Enable DRM, I clicked the button anyway. No audio. I restarted Firefox, no audio. I restarted my computer, no audio. I opened Chrome and everything is working fine. I did not even okay this update. I have my preferences set to NOT automatically update. it seems like Firefox is ignoring my preferences. Firefox should provide an instant downgrade to the previous version that supported audio. In the past I have downgraded a few times until things were working smoothly, but it's a headache. Now I understand Firefox makes it even harder to do that. I may just switch to Chrome permanently.

After updating Firefox to 76.0.1, I have found my Inbox, Junk & other Folders DISAPPEARED from Outlook (see attachment). After "tinkering" around, I have found the problem starts when i increase Firefox "Zoom" to 100%. This is VERY Annoying. Why is this and are there any "easy" workarounds?

Thanks In Advance,

Since the latest update (76.01), Firefox will no longer played age restricted content on Youtube. It prompts with the Age Restricted warning and asks if you wish to proceed. I click in the affirmative and it's adds a verified=1 argument to the link and attempts to proceed to the video. But then it pops up the denied because the video is age restricted error. I have double checked and don't have any age restrictions options selected (either in Firefox, Youtube or Google settings). I am over 50, so none of those 3 sites would be popping it up because it thinks I'm under age. All age restricted videos played perfectly fine before this latest update. I have cleared all cookes and cache, signed out and back in to Youtube and Google accounts and nothing helps. I can copy the exact link into Chrome and the video plays fine as normal. I have disabled all add-ons and used safe browsing with no success in viewing such videos.
