I searched for an official portable version of firefox and one of the first results was this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1247235 anyways this seems dissapointing since he says we should only download from official sources and at the same time there is no official portable version, can i be honest.. this sucks. You know time passed since that thread was created (3 years...) but still no offfical version, why?

So it seems to most known source for firefox portable is this site: https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable I know you don't represent this website but still i have to ask how secure is it?

Also, how are chances mozilla will work on a portable official version? any plans?

I have a backup on my portable drive, where the F.Fox files cannot be deleted, not with WinRar either, they cannot be renamed. These are system files for F.Fox. The folder location is AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/ggsw864i.default-release/storage/default. In this folder I have had several files that belongs to the long file name category. They are compressed, cannot separate them by opening and cannot rename them for to assign a shorten name. There is no Properties to open. The files starting string: https+++ I have several data on this HD and it would be a huge task move the content then reformatting the drive. I did try the Windows Command Prompt rename method - it does not work either. Any help would be appreciated!

I can no longer use Firefox since last update to access a interactive map on my village Website. This is the page that does not work as it use to. https://www.elkgrove.org/i-want-to/contact-the-village My village said to contact Firefox to get help.

Click on Contact The Village The page will come up to find the map near the bottom of the page. This map use to always pop up with the village map right away and no need to enter the name of the town.

FredMcD you asked if I could post a link to the Map . . this is the link to the page that has the map. Normally it would simply pop up as Elk Grove Village as that is the website this is in, but it does not and I can not enter the name of the city in the box provided. The map is at the bottom of this page.

Windows 8.1, Firefox 99.0.2, eMail program part of Microsoft Office365 (deployed by university IT department) Login process worked fine for a month or so after implementation of a 2-level authentication (password plus a second method of user's choice - I chose a USB-flash device which [on request] sends a code for 2nd verification). All of the above still works, except that once logged in, the system asks me if it should remember me, or not (i.e., store a cookie or not, for future convenience). I always click "No". Now, when I do that, I get an error number 500, which is completely non-committal: "Something Went Wrong" - with a long garbage code. (See attachment for sample.) Results of tests to see what's wrong: 1) works fine (able to complete eMail login) under Microsoft Edge; 2) works fine on my laptop, running Windows 8.1 and Firefox 94; 3) on the 'problem' computer (desktop), I uninstalled Firefox 99 and downloaded/installed Firefox 93 - "500" error persisted. Just today: removed Firefox/Mozilla (including all folders/files, and Registry entries) then re-installed version 99. Still doesn't work. Let me know what else you need to know.

Firefox is not properly displaying text on brave search results. When this page is displayed in chromium based browsers, text is much thicker and has some fragments in bold. Firefox has thin text and no bold fragments. Text is so thin it is barely visible. Problem only happens on win 8.1. On win 10 page displays normally. I compared win 8.1 firefox fonts settings to pc with win 10 and they are the same so page should be displayed similarly.

This is page on firefox on win 8.1 https://i.postimg.cc/Gt4k0DF6/1.png

This is page on win 10 or on win 8.1 in chromium browsers. https://i.postimg.cc/1XbDyzMX/2.png

As if this morning, all my bookmarks have disappeared. I did a Firefox search for the problem and got a page titled "My bookmarks have disappeared". I followed the directions:

1. Click on the menu button to open the menu panel. Click Bookmarks and then click the Manage Bookmarks bar at the bottom. 2. In the Library window, click the Import and Backup button and then select Restore. 3. Select the backup you want to restore from the list of dated automatic backups.

   You can also select Choose File...to restore bookmarks from the manual backup, if you created one.

4. After confirming your choice, the bookmarks from the backup you selected will be restored.

The backup was not restored. I need help.

With some update of Firefox, it changed the way it handled Excel files to where it opened in Excel automatically instead of asking to open or save. I know how to change this in the Settings|Application, but I have a few users that Excel is not listed in the Content Type at all. Does anyone know how to add an application type if it's missing?

Thanks

I am a member of teaching staff at a university in the UK. Most sites we common sign-in via SSO but some sites have different sign-in methods. I am no expert on any of this, merely a user. 2 particular sites I need access to have failed to let me in in recent months. They generate a pop-up (see enclosed window-shot) asking me for my username and password and then keep coming up with the same pop-up. Both sites work with Chrome on my laptop and Opera on my phone. Our systems team have relayed me the following explanation:

“The latest versions of Firefox aren’t compatible with the “Extended Protection” for Windows Integrated authentication (NTLM) security setting that we have set on the Faculty Intranet…

The reason for using extended protection is that it enhances the existing Windows Authentication functionality to mitigate authentication relay or "man in the middle" attacks. This setting has been in place since the tail end of last year…”

I don't want to have to use Chrome, can't use Edge as this is a Windows 8.1 machine. Any chance of solving this?

I am asking a question I have seen asked a hundred times but I've never seen answered. I will start with firefox is NOT in full screen. A number of updates back all tabs but the one currently being viewed has become blacked out. All that is visible is a firefox symbol or if it's a search page, the google symbol. Not the page title as before. Before the update all tab details were visible at all times. How do I revert to having my tab details being displayed so I don't have to go through all tabs to find the one I want. I don't want to know another way of finding a particular page I have open, just how to bring back the tab information as it always was. I'm very close to changing browsers because of this tragic improvement firefox has implemented.
