I scanned a number of pages into .pdf format. I do not want to use proprietary products, like Adobe, to work with them, but I do need to separate the scanned page images. I don't want to change the text, I just want to separate them so they are not one big lump. I know I can open them with the Firefox browser, but can I somehow separate the pages in Firefox too?

I set "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc." in my plugins to "Never Activate" and certain sites won't play content now (ex. Netflix). I tried to go back and activate it again, but Google Widevine is now completely gone from the plugins and I can't find it by searching for it, so I have no way of activating it.

The release of Firefox V57 has the potential of disabling a number of extensions on which I rely. How can I prevent automatic updating (essentially "freeze" my version) until I have found adequate replacements for the extensions about to be made obsolete?

An ancillary question might be: how can I archive a version of Firefox so that I can roll back to it?

I understand the potential security risks.

Hello,

After the last updates of firefox and flash, I cannot play any flash game - all of them works very slow. I tried everything, described in the forums, without success (disabling hardware acceleration, reinstalling, etc.). Everything works FINE in Opera, Edge and Chrome. Just in FF is very slow.

I use: Windows 10 (64 bit) Firefox 64 bit (latest version) Flash player (latest version)

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best regards!

I don't understand the instruction: You can disable the warning when you type in a name/password field by setting this pref to false.

   security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled = false 

What does that mean?

I can no longer hear sound from Youtube videos. Vimeo.com still makes sound. So does Chrome on Youtube and media playback from my local sound files. I have tried restarting my computer and also restarting Firefox without add-ons. These did not help. The Youtube sound meter (in the bottom of videos) is set to max.

IE connects OK on the PC where this is a problem. I can connect using Firefox on a different computer. Just prior to this occurring two bad passwords were entered. The third connected. Next time a connection was attempted this failure occurred.

Since updating Firefox yesterday I have been getting a "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised. Learn More" pop-up on every page where it thinks there's login information. I've tried without success to resolve this with the System Preferences on my MacBookPro as well as within Firefox.

This is extremely problematic as my job requires me to set up accounts for our Agents. In the screenshot below you'll see that I'm already logged into the website (fathomrealty.com/backend) and creating accounts for our Agents. But it's giving me this error even when I'm trying to create accounts WITHIN the system - not just when I'm trying to log into the system.

This is not just happening on the site I mentioned in the example below or on the screenshot. This is happening on every single site I have visited since updating Firefox. I am extremely frustrated and in need of assistance. I have spent the better part of two days trying to remedy the issue and have found nothing that works. I'd like to turn off all together whichever security setting is now causing this issue. I can't work this way and if needed I'll have to change browsers completely (It does not happen in Chrome or Safari). Please help me..... Thank you, DeJane Kerr

Hi everyone I've got a very (VERY) **** annoying problem. It's starting to freak me out.

Firefox doesn't play any youtube videos. From youtube itself or from other site with embedded player. I just see spinning dots forever.

What I've done to fix problem: 1. Restarted browser many times - no effect at all 2. Refreshed browser - sometimes I see effect, sometimes no. Anyway videos stop playing after first restart of the FF or even before it. 3. I deleted and re-installed FF - no effect 4. I deleted all of my profiles and FF itself and then reinstalled it - everything was fine, but only for a half of a day. 5. I also disabled synchronization - no effect. 6. I disabled all addons - no effect.

Any other browsers (chrome, edge, others) play youtube as cool as always. I'm 99% sure I've got no malware or viruses on my PC.

Windows 10, Firefox 53 (64 bit)

What should I do now?

I have a form with an input <input id="quantity" name="quantity" step="0.01" type="number"> but when I type something like 5.5 it tells me that is not valid. The regional setting in Windows 10 are set to use a point as the decimal symbol, but Firefox will only accept it as a number if I use a comma e.g. 5,5

It also did this on Windows 7. Other browsers do accept the point symbol.

My default search is set to Google but when I search Bing hijacks the search. Do you have a fix for this. Nothing I have found on the internet appears to fix this problem. From what I have seen on the internet It is a pretty common problem and annoying to many people. I would hope you have a fix that doesn't involve buying an app. I'm a long time, satisfied, Firefox user but I will have to switch to chrome if this can't be fixed. Thankyou, PoppaB

Hi, I have been using the BBC website for years now, but recently it has lost a lot of its functionality on Firefox. MS Edge works okay.

Is it a BBC problem or Mozillla?

Typically, images are not downloading properly, video's not playing, weather favs are not available, I can not even change my cookie settings. It is not a great browsing experience that I have become used to with Firefox.

Before the last Firefox update (53.0) I was able to check documents in and out from sharepoint directly from the office app (excel, power point, whatever) after having opened them through FireFox. Since the last update, that no longer works and firefox downloads the document and opens it rather than having office directly open the document from the clicked URL.

Note: in earlier versions; I had to activate the office web apps plugin before this actually worked. Firefox then asked whether I'd allow the office plugin to run, doing that gave me the desired solution.

The only thing I find related to this functionality is this plugin from microsoft: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=27106. This is however an old plugin and in the last versions of FireFox I never had to install this, it "just worked".

I hope someone will be able to help, I don't want to switch to IE or Edge as my standard work browser.

I developed a Firefox addon which is only for users in my company. So I and want to distribute the .xpi file for manual installation. Now, I uploaded the .zip file to addons.mozilla.org where the addon passes the automatic tests and I am able to sign it, which I did. After downloading the .xpi file Firefox says, that the addon can not be installed because it "appears to be corrupt".
