On the New Tab Page I have 16 pinned sites, half of them always displayed large favicons (from the TippyTop list or 'rich' icons provided by the sites, as I understand it) without me doing anything, while half showed screen captures with a small favicon in the bottom right corner. For the latter half I eventually found large icons on the web which I then set in the NTP 'Edit' for those sites.

Suddenly yesterday, one site that had always displayed a large icon without me specifying anything has changed to the small screen capture with small favicon overlay. There must be some way to change it back to the large icon that it's been displaying for years, but I don't know what that is. Can anyone help? How do you get Firefox to re-scan and find the TippyTop or rich icon again for a pinned top site?

Hello,

Firefox 76.0.1 is causing me problems...

For example if I call a PHP program to log out, I use the JavaScript command:

function Logout() {

 self.location = "Root.php?LogOff=Y"

}

No problem there, but when I want to log back in I use:

<form name='detail' method='Post' onsubmit='Root.php'> <input type='text' name='UserId' class='Full' style='border: 0;'> <input type='Password' name='Password' class='Full'>

(The class Full, just sets the width to 100% as this is in a table)

The the JavaScript is simply:

function LogIn() {

 document.detail.submit();

}

Seems simple enough, but the Root.PHP receives:

 LogOff -> Y
 UserId -> <name>
 Password -> <password>

Not what I was expecting!

The only other thing of note is that I have started using local.storage to save information, and this too passes information from previous calls.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Richard Gamester

I ran into some problems recently as I usually clear out everything that was saved in my internet folder. I go to Tools/Options/Privacy/Security/Clear Data, well, this is about a week, but an INSISTENT 267 bits are REFUSING to go and be let free from my cached web content.

Additionally, I usually run an RKILL scan, a JRT scan, and a Malwarebytes AdwCleaner scan when I've finished logging off, for security reasons. The JRT scan flagged a "staged folder" in my FF profile, and had removed it. The folder had some sort of code in it.

Um, while we're at it, is FF still using IE as a "gateway"? I know at one time it was, but I seem to be also harangued by Searchscopes.

could someone help me out, please.

I'm using FF 76.01 and windows 10.

Thanks so much in advance,

MM.

P.S. also got a report that one of my blog tabs had been breached, with an ad from Avast - is this common?

About 1 in every 40 or so times that I try to drag the vertical scroll bar with my left mouse button, it acts like I have clicked UNDER the scroller and starts scrolling down quickly until I release the mouse button. This NEVER happens in Chrome or other programs. It always works properly the next time I drag it.

Potentially related: About 1 in every 75 or so times that I try to drag the vertical scroll bar with my left mouse button, the scroller doesn't stay under my mouse cursor. It moves about half as fast. This makes it impossible for me to scroll to the bottom of the page because my mouse cursor gets to the bottom before the scroller, which means I have to let go and grab the scroller again to finish scrolling down. The scroller always stays with my mouse cursor on the 2nd attempt.

I've attached a pic showing what i'm calling the "scroller"

I have a few special buttons on my keyboard (Calculator / Mail). I've set them (on lxde-rc.xml) to run a simple bash script (Volume up / down using pactl). Unfortunately, I've noticed that only on Firefox hangs when I press these buttons (tested with terminal/slack/IDEs/Chrome, no issues). It's a ~2 seconds hang that prevents me from doing anything (tried scrolling/typing/clicking, nothing).

Any way to see what is actually happening / disable this behavior?

After a full review of all Mozilla's addon troubleshooting pages, the addons I use everyday either don't appear upon my use of a mouse right click or don't work when clicking on them in the browser's header bar, and I haven't downloaded the new Firefox version for GREAT fear of AGAIN loosing ALL of my addons for the second time. And not being able to use my lost addons have crippled my production, because their replacement have not been nearly as good.

To remove an addon was easy, but reinstalling it won't fully engage even when the page popped up and gave me the option to install it. It's just spinning.

I imagine we're not talking about a sudden incompatability without an upgrade. Your help is welcome.

I have a JVC G3 digital camera plugged into my MacBook Air via the thunderbolt port which I use when live-streaming.

When using Quicktime or Chrome, I can select the G3 camera instead of the HD FaceTime built-in camera with the pull down menu.

However in the FireFox camera menu, only the HD FaceTime camera is available so I cannot use it.

Firefox version is 76.0.1 (64 bit) Macbook is late 2016 Air running macOS Mojave 10.14.6

I don't understand why it works on some programs but not on Firefox - can anybody help please?
