I just updated Firefox today to 44.0. I was using it just fine for the hours before that but right after the update no websites would load. Firefox gives no error message. All I see is the little spinning wheel with "Connecting..." beside it. I've tried multiple sides like Reddit, Youtube, Google and Twitter to no avail. I've tried removing and adding Firefox to the exclusions list on my antivirus with no results and running as admin. Disabling my antivirus didn't seem to affect it at all except I noticed one of the help pages on the forums here mentioned it sometimes doesn't actually disable. I left Firefox running while writing this to see if an error message will show up. It still says connecting and it's been around 15 minutes. I'm starting to get a headache so if anyone could lend me a hand that'd be great.

Somehow, my v44 Firefox is messed up on Win7/64. It regularly loses session information (all my tabs and tabgroups) and many video sites don't work, as well as Youtube being totally messed up (I've gone through dozens of "fixes" from the web to no avail). Before bailing to Chrome, I'd like to give it one last try by completely de-installing FF and then a new installation from scratch. HOWEVER: I don't want to lose history, bookmarks, addons, tabs and tabgroups. I'm aware that some of these (mainly addons) could be causing my problems, so I'd like to then restore one piece at a time until I might find the corruption. The backup/restore techniques I've seen don't allow for this complete reinstall and incremental restore. Is there any way I can accomplish this?

Sorry if this ends up in the wrong forum.....

Now, can someone please explain how I - : (see numbers on screendump) 1. Can shorten the "address field" - it's butt ugly like this (you can see how I shortened it on up to FF 43.0.X using only 4 "flexible spaces" on bottom part of screendump, now on FF 44 it doesn't work at all, even when I've added a "few" flexible spaces) 2, Can get rid of this grayish "film" on the bookmark toolbar. It too is B-U and need to be gone ASAP.

Never mind about No. 3

Regards,

After updating and hoping to finally get to use push notifications on websites that can in my other browsers I was unable to seem to get it to add any permissions for a site.



The "you have not granted this site any special permissions" comes up on any site from the green lock, but no dropdown or dialog for allowing them happens (Pictured below)

Going to options --> content allows me open a box to revoke permissions to a site but not add any

I attempted to upload png screenshots of each of these things but they refused to load.

After upgrade to ver 44, lost ability to copy web page text and paste as unformated text in eudora... only html text option is available for paste

Immediately after upgrading to version 44 of firefox, I have lost the ability to copy text from a web page and paste it as unformatted text within the body of an eudora e-mail message... the paste special option now only displays html format as an option.. before the upgrade, unformatted and rich text options were also available in addition to html. This is occurring on two separate computers after the upgrade to v44... one with Win 7 64 bit and the other XP with the last service pack (3 I believe.) Copy and paste options are still working as it should when using IE, Opera and Chrome as alternate browsers.


JAN 27 UPDATE: A similar issue occurs with MSWord (older version): The paste special options after copying text from a web page using Firefox v44 are limited to HTML text or Unformatted text [Unicode]... RTF (Rich Text) and plain Unformatted text options are no longer available since the Firefox upgrade to v44.

A work around I found for Eudora (ver 7) is to paste using <ctrl><shift><v> at the insertion point.

After upgrading to FF 44.0 dragging URLs from the address bar no longer works as in previous versions:

Dragging a URL to such programs as AnyVideo Converter now fails, dragging URLs into Win7 Notepad also fails - both used to work in prev. versions (dragging it into an Internet Explorer tab does still work)

Dragging selected text to Word or Windows Notepad is no longer possible (manual copy&paste does work)

Same result with all add-ons disabled.

EDIT: Interestingly, it works just fine with LibreOffice Writer and a test prog I created using Python and Pyside.

Looks like something has changed with how FF handles DND in this version. Is that change intentional (possibly to adhere to some standard I as a user couldn't care less about) or simply a bug?

Thanks

I need to login onto a forum. When I use Firefox and try to login, there is this javascript:void(0); error at the left bottom of the browser.

So I went on to install Java, so now Java(TM) Platform SE 8 U71 11.71.2.15 is installed.

Still this error. Even after closing Firefox and relaunching it a few times.

When I use Edge, no problem.

Now what?

Why is it so complicated whereas with Edge .. no problems. I need to install Flash, need to install Java, need to check whether Firefox is x64 (how?) This that ... Maybe I should even reboot, I don't know.

I never use anything else than Firefox, but it seems that whenever there is something with Java or Flash, one needs to use Edge or Chrome...

Hi, I wonder if there is a way to disable the feature that let an user delete history entries from history window.

In our office we use firefox as default browser, and as many offices there are web filter rules, but some people still get the ability to bypass those rules and get into web that are supposed to be blocked.

We also use third party extensions to disable "Clean history function" from History menu, but some tricky users can still delete history right from History window. They just go to: Show all History → Navigate to "today", "yesterday" or any option and hits the Spr key, history was deleted...

So, my question is if there is an option or a way to disable that feature.

Thanks in advance!
