when opening a website link, from a source other than through Firefox, my home page also opens up as a second tab. This is annoying as I always receive a message asking if I want to close all tabs when I close down the web page I initially opened up. I never used to have this happen. How do I turn this off?

I really hope someone can help. I'm on a macbook Air and kept getting a Widevine cdm plugin crash error message coming up. Some help online said I should move my profile folder onto my desktop and this would solve the problem. I did this and now upon opening firefox browser all my bookmarks have gone and I seem to have a new firefox browser as is never used. I have no gone back into 'About Profiles' and have two directories 'local' and 'root' listed. I have no idea how to restore my old firefox browser and bookmarks. Help!

Using FF 88.0.1 in both Linux Mint and Windows 10 and without syncing add-ons, The "New Tab Override" looses my granted permission and opens a new tab on it's own Options/Preferences page, where it shows that permission is granted.

The simple solution I found that clearing the Startup cache restores functionality.

Already reported this on the add-on's Github site, which directed me back here.

It would be nice to not have the little resize grabber icon/control in the bottom right corner of the screen when in Responsive Design Mode as it shows in screen shots. It doesn't seem like it is possible to hide it or have it not show in screen shots. Is there a way? If so, how? If not, what is the best way to get a feature request in front of Moz devs?

Eine Textdatei mit dem Editor erzeugen. Die Datei deaktivateFireFoxUpdate.txt nennen. Den Folgenden Text hineinkopieren oder schreiben:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox] "DisableAppUpdate"=dword:00000001

Die Datei speichern und dann Umbenennen mit der Endung REG. Das heiß aus deaktivateFireFoxUpdate.txt wird deaktivateFireFoxUpdate.reg Dann die Datei ausführen. Die Datei legt den Wert DisableAppUpdate in der Reg an und setzt ihn auf 1, das stoppt Firefox Autoupdates. In den Firefox Einstellungen steht dann Updates durch Admin deaktiviert.

Um ds Rückgängig zu machen Eine DAtei mit folgemdem Inhalt erzeugen:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox] "DisableAppUpdate"=dword:00000000

Die Updates werden aktiviert bzw., deaktiviert indem man den Wert auf 1 oder Null setzt.


Meine Meinung dazu: So bekommt man wieder die Eigenständige Kontrolle über seinen Computer. Ein dreifaches Pfui an Mozilla, für diese selbstherrliche despektierliche, anmaßende und User abwertenden Zwangsupdates von Firefox. Ich brauche keine großen Bruder oder schlimmeres der sich um meine Sicherheit kümmert. Mozilla hat damit genau das getan was sie an Microsoft und anderen kritisieren, die niemals so weitgehend würden wie Mozilla. Das ist wirklich übele Bevormundung. Ich bereue denen mal Geld gespendet zu haben weil ich dachte die stehen für Freie, mündige Menschen und die Selbstbestimmung des Individuums. Von mir gibt es keine Cent mehr so lange das so ist. Zum kotzen; sich selbst mit Gemeinnützigkeit beweihräuchernde Gutmenschen, die sich Zeugen Jehovas gleich ausführen. Die machen auch Zwangsupdates und manipulieren andere. Pfui. So was finde man eigentlich nur in der Kirche und bei totalitären Systemen. In einer Demokratie hat das nichts verloren. Ich frage mich wie tief der geistige Abgrund bei denen inzwischen wirklich ist seit sie das gemacht haben und was sie wirklich denken. Denn mit dieser Sache muss ich die meisten ihrer Aussagen als gelogen betrachten. Menschen die wirklich für die Mündigkeit und Freiheit des Menschen stehen und diese respektieren, bauen nicht in eine Software von der sie zuvor Menschen abhängig gemacht haben Zwangsupdates ein und erklären sie ohne den Einzelnen zu kennen pauschal für zu dumm selbst zu bestimmen und auf die eigen Sicherheit zu achten. Das ist abwertend und menschenverachtend arrogant. Schlimmer noch das schafft bestenfalls abhängige Menschen, die verlernen auf ihre Sicherheit zu achten. Der Große Bruder macht es ja. Vieleiche wird Firefox ja von der NSA gesponsert, das wäre so deren Handschrift. Mit so was bereitet man den Weg für totalitäre System aber nicht für die Freiheit!

I just made a clean install of windows. It seems that firefox for some bizarre reason won't accept cookies from some sites.

For example at www.office.com, when I click "sing in" and I set up my credentials, I am still at the same "sign in" page. The problem can be easier understood in the following capture. (excuse the watermark)

I have the same issue with other sites, such as my bank, IRS, etc etc, making firefox practically unusable. Is there any fix for this?

When using Firefox on my 2018 MacBook Pro the cursor will either jump to the address bar or close the window in which I have been entering text. This has been happening since I got the MacBook Pro. This does not happen with other browsers, only Firefox. It has continued with this issue through several OS updates as well as Firefox updates.

in settings I have turned off all enhanced tracking I could find but apparently it doesn't keep the browser from blocking stuff. I have to go up to the address line and turn it off there. I'm getting sick to death and if I can't stop this enhanced tracking I'm done with firefox. Before you say I need it, the browser is already set to delete all cookies etc and never remember history when I close it.

So how can i stop firefox from enhanced tracking stuff even though nothing is checked under the Custom box in settings?

Firefox obviously couldn't care less about users when it comes to making things user-friendly. What are users supposed to do in order to sign into their account? I don't need to enable two-step authentication, so why are they forcing me? If they think it's necessary, what is "my authentication app"? I don't have any authentication app and why do I need it to sign into my account on my PC??? Where do I get that authentication app? Is it really so hard to include a link or at least a name of that app?

I am pretty sure I'm the only person in the whole world with this problem because I couldn't find this issue in any search engines including Google.

I used that online site (I forgot name) to make a new Firefox theme (just fiddled around colours, images etc), but didn't commit and closed Firefox and forgot about it. Now everytime I open Firefox, that same theme takes over whatever theme I have selected or the default theme. I can change to other themes fine but when Firefox restarts, it reverts back to that theme. I don't understand why something I didn't even save is taking control like this. I don't want to delete/reset profile or re-install Firefox.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I know the ID attribute value of the element I want to find but I can't find a way to go to it. Ctrl+F searches the parsed code/page, the "search HTML" textbox between the tabs and the HTML code doesn't seem to do anything even though I can see the string in the code, and I can't find the "magnifying glass icon on the far right of the Breadcrumbs row". How can I search for a string in the actual code?

Thanks in advance.

Restricted Mode on Youtube, which had popped up on my laptop about two months back, was driving me crazy, so I decided to redownload Firefox from scratch, which only made the problem worse, as some of the settings such as customizing search engines couldn't be changed anymore due to a network administrator. Changing internet connection points doesn't help the situation either, as none of the settings' availability change.

Hello, I can open firefox but I can't access any website. Firefox is completely blocked. Just a blank page. I can't access "option" or any other tab. I can't access internet. Since I'm not a developer I've decided to download a new version but can't seem to delete ALL the files from the previous firefox so when I upload the new I get the message impossible to execute the code VCRUNTIME_1.dll which isn't found. I don't know if it has anything to do with the problem but the "new" Firefox shows exactly the same issue. I can't access internet. I even tried to download, after deleting the firefox on my desktop, a firefox for businesses but the same message and the same issue. I've tried to delete absolutely all files Firefox from my laptop so I could download the browser as if I never had it on my computer but I'm not successful so the same issue shows up again and again. Thank you for your help.
