Two different websites, even google map cannot find my location but geo position is enabled and permissions are given. Google maps says your location could not be determined. Everything works fine on Chrome. This started a few days ago, before that everything was working fine.

So today I am trying to access "LIVE TV" on CBS.com which requires location services. Never had an issue before, but today it says basically "Oops! We can't find you." I've made sure location services is not permanently disabled and everything. I even tried another browser and was able to connect and watch LIVE TV just fine, so it seems it is only a Firefox issue.

While Firefox is my preferred browser, things like this are browser breaking, as I specifically pay for CBS All Access for the LIVE TV access.

I need to unblock a Java add on that Firefox has blocked but there is no 'Enable' setting or option for me to choose whether to block or unblock it. Java is used by my company and blocking it is not an option.

Honestly I'm not that happy with Mozilla/Firefox about this in general, It's MY computer I get to decide what I run and don't run. Firefox not having the option for me to say 'Okay, you don't like it but I do so we're going to do it' is a major failure.

Whenever I try to upload a file larger than about 2Mb, the upload freezes and times out. I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing addons, running in safe mode, clearing the cache and deleting and reinstalling Firefox but the issue still arises. The only thing I think it could be is that there is an Adobe Acrobat - Create PDF 1.1 addon that is disabled but I don't know how to remove the addon. But this may not be the issue. I've only noticed this problem in the last couple of months. Thanks, Ben

The update just disabled my lavasoft/grisoft registery tuner & malware protection search plug & my AVG toolbar that scans all web pages for viruses before it lets me on them. Sorry it was only 2 security programs, the other was the ebates tab where I could automatically log in through ebates to do my shopping on their accepted sites

Do Web Workers Work In FF v43?

I have the following html page:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Web Worker Example</title>
  </head>
 <body>
  <p>The time is now: <span id="result" /></p>
  <script>
var worker  = new Worker('worker.js');
worker.onmessage = function (event) {
document.getElementById('result').innerText = event.data;
    };
  </script>
 </body>
</html>

And the worker.js is simply:

setInterval(function() {
        postMessage(new Date());
}, 2000);

This works fine in Chrome but I get nothing after "The Time Is Now:" in FireFox?

Ideas?

Thanks,

Ray

So I updated to FF 43, and all of my tabs are gone. Some of them were old, trusted friends of mine, and I'd like to have them back.

There's a directory that got created on my desktop that says Old Firefox Data, and there's a sessionstore.bak in there that might have my stuff in it. I closed FF, renamed it to .js and restarted FF, but no luck. Of course, I then realized that I was in aforementioned Old Firefox Data directory, and not the actual Firefox directory.

Navigating to -that- directory, I don't see a sessionstore.js in there at all.

I am very frustrated whenever firefox updates and excludes my virus protector. I understand they are limited in their abilities to allow for X number of different programs that people use privately. But why isn't there a setting that allows me to choose whether or not to use MY virus protection addon? I trust it a whole lot more than I trust the browser.

Is there anyone who can help me to turn Norton back on as an addon to firefox? And also turn off future firefox updates. Thank you.
