Basically the only one showing up is uBlock origin, others show up as enabled when I go to the Manage your add-ons page, but not in the toolbar. I've tried resetting everything to default settings, updated every add-on, enabled history collection.. nothing has made a difference. Any tips would be very appreciated!

Greetings,

After a recent upgrade, i noticed that i can't browse to certain website using firefox, however if I used chrome or any other browser it i can.

after troubleshooting, noticed that in firepower (firewall I am using), the requests are using "ultrasurf client" image attached. Thus application gets blocked.

Made sure I don't have any "ultrasurf" plugin / addon installed, I even tested with running firefox in safemode but still same issue.

I also noticed that when I try to load a site, the connection doesn't go to that website IP but to one of cloudflare IPs. DOH is disabled, I and blocked all Cloudflare connections on the firewall.

Has anyone noticed this with their firefox ?

Version 86 DOH Disabled Firepower detects Ultrasurf client Connections are made to Cloudflare ips (Specifically to the range 104.16.0.0/12)

I couldn't find this so I worked it out myself... post this as a fix for others!

TROUBLE: I have had problems with scrolling down using the scroll bar on reddit and elsewhere. When it got near the bottom it would uncontrollably jump back up not allowing me to get to the bottom of the page whether I held it with the cursor or not.

FIX: Go into options, general, browsing and turn off SMOOTH SCROLLING and AUTO SCROLLING.

When my Microsoft Surface is in tablet mode and I click in any text field in Firefox, the on-screen keyboard pops up, there's a little shutter on the screen, and the keyboard closes. If I open the keyboard again by clicking in the task bar, the same thing happens again. The on-screen keyboard works perfectly in all other apps.

Anyone come across this before? Any thoughts?

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and Windows.

Hello! Our company has had this issue since May of 2020. out of 170 users, we will have 3 or 4 users per day crashing at random times. we cannot recreate the crashing on demand, its random times, random pcs. we are running the latest ESR version we do have a handful of PCs on the non ESR version also crashing. nothing in their extensions. we have tried running in safe mode and renaming the storage folder for some of the repeat users PCs but the crashing persists after a few days. we had all users refresh firefox but it will also happen again after a few days. we have tried setting a different home page for some users but they still get it. the only fix is to reinstall firefox and it will work fine for a few days but then will happen again. when they are in the crash cycle, nothing will get FF to open, only reinstall. FF is the default browser since some of our vendors require it. any help would be appreciated!

here are some of the users crash reports. I cant tell what is causing the crashes. we do have mcafee AV and have tested removing Endpoint security modules but still got crashing.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I've got a problem. On both my towers I have the Stop Button (and the Reload Button too) installed because I hate that little dual purpose thing that looks like a worm in an apple (small a apple) and can't be moved out of the URL bar to the bar I want it in. The installation on the tower (Windows 10 and updated today Firefox whatever that is) is working perfectly. On the machine running XP, with Firefox ESR 52.9.0, both buttons have died. I have removed and reinstalled. Not a flicker of life. AVG has been intermittently badgering me and offering to remove them, but I always tell it where to go (even though it won't) and close the warning. The people at AVG don't seem to understand that a lot of people outside AVG don't accept their prog's fatwa on certain extensions. What I'm wondering is, is it AVG being sneaky, or is there a reason why two extensions working happily for several months should go legs up? AVG warns me on the 10 machine too, btw. But the buttons still work. Before I made the Final Upgrade to ESR 52.9.0, I had real Mozilla buttons, but these ones by kiheru are the only replacements I can find. PS for software reasons I need both XP and 10.

Preferences for PDF files

After Firefox updated to version 86 yesterday a couple of my users are being prompted to select what they would like Firefox to do with a PDF file each time they download one. They set it to open in Foxit Reader and checked the box to do it automatically each time but it always goes back to the default setting. I confirmed that the Application settings in Options is set to use Foxit Reader for PDFs and I even followed the troubleshooting step for this issue and renamed the handlers.json file.

Also each time they try to download a PDF a prompt comes up asking for an admin password (see the 3rd image). These computers are on a domain, so the UAC prompt isn't unusual but we don't restrict them from being able to download files. But I'm having the same issue as well and I'm not on the domain, so I think this is more of a symptom then a cause.

Is this a bug in the latest update? I was troubleshooting a printer setting issue for them the day before yesterday. Did some testing on my computer and theirs, got it worked out that Foxit works best for their needs when printing a PDF from a web app. Then yesterday afternoon they began to have issues where they couldn't print at all. I checked it out and all of our computers updated to Firefox v86 and everything is now working differently now in terms of handling PDFs.

Thanks in advanced,

Josh

in one of the recent previous versions it was possible to print the webpage e.g. to pdf. when there was a lot of other info/characters on the preview, you could choose to simplify the page and a lot of text over text was gone, now it that not possible anymore; print web pages is gobbled up to that the basic web text is not readable anymore. Would it be possible to get this 'simplify page' back on the new print window? I have not a screenshot with that option to show, sorry for that. Thank you in advance. Theo

I don't remember exactly the date, but I think it started after a update(firefox/windows). The oldest pic I have is from 23/11/20. Firefox was running without no problems, then this started.

Gallery

The problem is High cpu usage from time to time. Making firefox slower and also freezing tabs. It's so annoying. Made me use Edge that runs incredibly smooth, I was impressed( I can even watch media in 1080p with no problem).

Then I noticed through the task manager that the 'Host service Windows font cache service' is always present, as you can see in the gallery. I didn't find anything related to that.

Tried starting in safe mode, refresh, uninstalled and installed today(24/02) and nothing worked. This is driving me crazy because I love using the browser.

My PC Setup is: Windows 10 Home i3-4130 8GB ram no video card

And I use the free avira antivirus.

Hello, all:

I thought I could try reaching out to see about why Firefox somehow reset itself or something earlier tonight then I lost some recent bookmarks with the bookmarks I had in the bookmarks bar so I had to set it up again and am not too sure of whether it'll happen again which I hope won't. Is there a simpler way or something so I can be sure to keep the bookmarks I have since I have quite a number of them? Hope this information helps you figure out the issue I had earlier and how to not have it happen again at some point which I hope won't be the case. Thank you in advance if you reply to this post.
