I have been a user of a particular website for awhile now. it is thingiverse.com . This website continually tells me that I need to disable my pop-up blocker in order to download a file from their website. 1. I DO want to download from their site. 2. I have not got the pop up blocker enabled on firefox 3. I do not have another pop up blocker enabled on my computer. 4. If I use a Microsoft Edge to get on the web, I can download from that website. 5. I have tried to actually enable pop up blockers on firefox and then say the pop ups are fine on thingiverse.com and that doesnt work either

6. I don't want to use a different browser to go on that website but can't figure out what to do.

Please offer any kind of insight you may have.

Thanks so much.

Hello,

When I'm trying to import passwords from other browsers (Safari or Brave) or CSV files generated by Safari and Brave nothing happens. There's not even an option to import the passwords from Safari, look at the attached screenshot. From Brave however the option is available, but even if I check that box nothing happens when I do the import. Do you know why? I've tried it on both Windows and macOS.

the labels toggle button on google maps is unresponsive in both satellite and maps views. where do i find a setting to allow this button to become active? can i program the button to become active? thanks for any help.

i'm on windows 11 and use firefox web browser. both are up to date. i tried it on the microsoft edge browser and it works.

i've tried disabling all addons, restarted firefox, and problem still exists.

next i went through all of my firefox settings and toggled those that might apply. problem still exists.

next went into about:config and checked all settings not set at default. toggled any that might apply. problem still there.

any other suggestions in the community? is there a particular area of firefox i should look into closer. i would prefer not to have to reinstall or reconfigure firefox on a wholesale level. i have it highly customized and it would take multiple hours over a number of days to get everything back to where it is. this is the only site giving me a problem, and only this function on the site.

under layers/more the globe view toggle works fine, only the labels view toggle is not working.

i inspected the button element in 'firefox inspect' and found the attribute disabled="false". google maps is not honouring the attribute. when i remove the attribute, the button works. i cannot apply this across sessions though.

Firefox version 106.0.1 Windows 11pro. Youtube videos will not play, unless they are Live. Weird. Checked internet. Loads on phone, loads fine in Edge. Restarted FF, cleared cache and cookies, tried private browsing, started in troubleshoot mode with no addons-- even the ad video at the top won't play. What else am I missing? Why will the live videos play but not the others? That seems like a clue, but I've hit the end of my ideas. I was able to watch youtube two days ago, the only change (afaik) is a Firefox update this morning.

I enjoy this handy addon, but it's got a couple bugs

Default Bookmark Folder

It's a recommended addon, but It seems that it's no longer being supported. Version is two years old, and issues reported on github are not responded to.

I wonder if anyone could recommend another addon with the same features.

Merely typing an email when the tab and window it was in shut down (am using linux mint and most recent FF build.) I have difficulty understanding programmer directions as typically given but can follow a path > to files and folders. I found firefox old backups and sessions folder but none of the session restore files are dated, won't open and won't restore.

After installing the new version 106.01, restoring recently closed windows in History doesn't work even though it is highlighted as being active, but nothing shows or happens when pointing at and clicking on "Recently Closed Tabs".

(I accidently closed one of my two windows and therefore lost all my tabs.) (I know I can restore the tabs one by one, but that will be a huge task.

So what can I do to restore my lost Firefox window?

Thanks in advance. Jens Giertsen Denmark
