http://i.imgur.com/pzgtxcr.png Let me be clear, I know this website, I don't give any single fuck about any potential security issue, the website doesn't even have any auth, I just want to access to it and i don't CARE about security for that. I think a browser should let me overturn security alerts and doesn't have the right to block me from doing something if I really want to.

Thanks

There are newspaper and magazine sites that block access to their content unless you are able whitelist their site. This allows (or stops blocking) their ads, which in turn is how they help pay for their sites. I can't find any information on how to do this and can't locate a whitelist in Firefox. Where do I start and what steps are required for creating or adding to a whitelist of websites whose ads are not blocked? Thank you!

Please note the screen capture.

The first image shows how this website screen I use all the time appears on Firefox. Then next to that is how it is suppose to appear as it appears on IE11. Some kind of plug in is required, but I can't figure out which one is needed to fix this problem.

I've checked Java which is properly installed and flash player is also installed. When I look at this screen through IE11, I see the missing animated image, but when I look at it through firefox, I get a blank area with the message you see displayed saying "A plugi is needed to display this content". This is happening in many other areas as well when I use Firefox. I've tried reinstalling firefox and it still comes up with this issue. I'm frustrated and out of ideas on what to do to get this working correctly.

Please help!

Hi,

Recently Firefox has stopped displaying Youtube comments and notifications. Comments stay as "Loading" and the notification box is empty: http://i.imgur.com/nvI3Ap3.png It works fine in Chrome is it is not a problem with Youtube, I have tried refreshing Firefox, and using safemode so I know it is not a problem with a plugin. If you could help me it'd be greatly appreciated.

Hi there, I tried downloading a file today, and it gave me no prompt to save, or any errors. It doesn't show up in the downloads tab no does it even initiate. I've tried downloading several other files, and the same thing. This doesn't usually happen, just the other day it worked fine.

I've tried downloading with both Chrome and iE, and they both work - i prefer using Firefox though.

I've followed all the troubleshooting advie I could find on the support pages, to no avail.

I disabled my anit-virus, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Cleared the cache and cookies. But still no downloads.

This has never happened to me before, is there something I can do to rememdy this issue?

Kind Regards Zaakir

How to completely disable website translation

Hi everybody,

I am fluent in 3 languages : french, english and spanish. I have configured Firefox (Preferences > Content > Languages) with all 3 languages, in that order : French, French (France), English, English (US), Spanish, Spanish (Spain)

Still, I can't prevent a lot of english websites to be automatically (and poorly) translated into french. I could switch language preferences and put english first, but then I would have a lot of french websites automatically (and poorly) translated into english.

I don't need any translation when a website is either in french, english or spanish. No translation at all.

hence, I'd like to completely disable all kind of automatic website translation. Everywhere. All the time. If someday I happen to come across a website that I want to translate, I know many other ways of doing so.

I hope this can be achieved somehow, even if I must tweak some Firefox settings.

Thanks in advance for your support !

When i go to a website i have previously gone too before without problem the captcha doesn't appear at all anymore. I tried browsing the net for answers but found little help. I recently tried going through my browser settings and trying different things and apparently got it to work again after installing the new java but it didn't completely fix the problem. After closing the browser and reopening it, the captcha was no where to be found again? Help please!?

I received notice from Firefox about its latest update. After completing the update (47.0), the cache will not clear to '0' as it has done for years. I went to about:cache and saw a 'cache2' that will not clear 62kb. I know this is not much, but I do not like the fact that it will no longer completely zero. Then I noticed a folder called 'doomed'.

Can cache2 be disabled? Is there someway to completely clear cache2? Is 'doomed' malware?

As an end user (not developer) how do I force my web-browser to have a (vertical) scrollbar?

I am looking at a web page designed for a full height screen. When using a desktop with external large monitor not a problem. However when using a small laptop screen (e.g.: ThinkPad with small height screen) the bottom of the web page gets cut off. If I make the page smaller (about 67%) zoom - then the page fits but it it not possible to identify the info I seek as font is now too small and overlapping.

In general as an end user I want to force my web-browser to have a scrollbar no matter what the source says - my PC my choice.
