Hi - Javzscript Enable, though "True", still brings up the error "Enable Javascript". I spent hours on this, but nothing useful was found. Has any one had this problem, and if so, were they able to fix it?

Best regards, Nick.

Hi all,

I’m trying to make aware people of the recent Google movements to close gate the internet to their services and I suggest to folks to move to Firefox.

One of my colleagues encounters a problem clearly visible on the image attached (it shows correctly on my mac).

It's not as bad on my mac, where I only have issues every now and then - I received an email this morning on my work email, and all the apostrophes were replaced with Registered symbol (R in a circle).

I noticed that not allowing websites to use their own fonts fixes the issue (unticking "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above") but I would like to be able to view sites the way the developers intented rather than forcing my browsers default fonts.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Win 11 FF 115.02

How can I permanently disable or remove the pop up that says, SIGN IN WITH GOOGLE?

None of the solutions match the reality of what my choices are on my G accounts page. For instance: https://www.howtogeek.com/735152/how-to-turn-off-the-sign-in-with-google-prompt-on-websites/

Nothing I have tried can remove it. Does some ace here have a solution?

Thank you.

This has happened to me too many times and haven't found a solution to it. When I open Firefox after I have booted up my PC, my browser would either function as normal and everything is kept the same, or would act as if I am new to Firefox and reset my settings and add-ons. I tried re-installing the browser and creating new browser profile, yet those solutions that I've found hasn't worked. Any solutions would be helpful, thanks

(In the image provided, this is what happens at times when opening the browser after turning on my PC)

Beginning this evening, I can no longer log in to my online google account.

I keep getting asked for "Two-Step Verification", but this doesn't work: I give a 'phone number, but my phone never rings. I once received a "Google verification Code" of [removed], but that didn't work, either.

I DO NOT WANT "2-step verification"; I don't need any special login protection.

How do I eliminate 2-step verification? It starts with "Sign in to keep your new Google News and get news based on your interests. ... Sign In", but never allows me to sign in!

When I go to clear the cache, browsing history, cookies, etc. the only options we have are "Today", a few even smaller time periods (1, 2, 4 hours), or "Everything"! What's up with that? Every other browser offers at least the option of "past 7 days" or some other time period that goes further back than one day, without having to clear "Everything", don't others find this to be arbitrarily limited? I can't even delete cache from yesterday, much less a few days earlier...

I've encountered this on several web sites; I'm unable to paste text into textareas that are controlled by CKEditor. If I try a different browser (Safari) on the same web site, paste works without an issue. I see no error messages, but simply when I paste nothing happens. It's happened to me in Firefox on two completely different web sites that are unrelated, and probably using different versions of CKEditor (the buttons have a different look).

I am disabled and have been using Dragon for writing and reading for more than 20 years. With the new update I cannot install the Dragon extension into Firefox and the longer. This means I will be no longer able to use Firefox as my web browser. This means I will be going to another editor! This is a shame because I've used Firefox even before it was Firefox! (Netscape)

Hi,

am I right that this problem still is not solved in FF?? Close tabs to the right is one of the most used functions for research professionals, but in FF you still have to use an add on to achieve this without driving around with your mouse to finally get into a sub menu??

I have multiple windows open with multiple tabs on each. Most created before I had a Firefox login (if that makes any difference).

I am upgrading my os on my Mac and somehow either a) keep all the windows with all their tabs open (preferable) or b) easily create some record of what they all are so I could relaunch them if a) is impossible.

How can I do this?

Any word on floating videos ? Have been asking for several years. Any progress on that front yet ? They're making a comeback and are as annoying as ever. Have been through all Settings tweaks etc -- nothing has ever worked. One of the most annoying user problems in the world and almost nothing has been done that I can see. Others trying to Sucker me into Chrome or Edge, which they claim are perfect and totally privacy oriented.

I'm on an M1 MacBook Air on macOS Sonoma developer beta 4 and for some reason videos on YouTube and Vimeo seem to be flickering and the colors orange, red, and green (not blue) seem to have the most visible flicker (it's quite rapid too, twice per second).

I'm on the latest (as of writing this post) version of Firefox 115.0.2. This issue does not occur on Chromium and Safari on the same device. Troubleshooting Mode does not seem to resolve the issue.

I understand macOS developer betas can break stuff and this could be the result of said beta but I'd like to report this issue to know if anyone else could also be experiencing this issue.

Firefox seems to think I am in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. I am actually in New York and have no connection to Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.

Google Chrome on the same (Windows 11 Microsoft Surface Pro X) computer has the right location for me, as does Microsoft Edge. Checking my IP address with https://www.iplocation.net/ gives a location reasonably close to my real location and nowhere near Arkansas.

If I clear all cache in Firefox, it does go back to the right address - at the cost of a lot of annoying re-entry of routine information. But after a few days it goes back to insisting I am in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.

Before I switch to Chrome, is there a way to fix this?

Apps Firefox and Thunderbird are having problems opening links to webpages. In particular, Cloudflare cannot verify (it just cycles between a checkbox "Are you human?" and a browser check) when I use FF.

I use Win11 with NordVPN, but this wasn't a problem before the latest Win11 update. (It also seems to have affected TB reconnecting to Ymail.) I'm now using Chromium to read my Ymail avoid Cloudflare verification, but I'd rather keep using FF and TB apps.

I've been going though Cloudflare, NordVPN and Mozilla online help for a few days now, and I think I've tried everything there.

Thoughts?
