After the last Firefox update, when I clicked on bkspace, it would take me back to the previous webpage. Happened on both Firefox and Chrome (laptop with Win10, all current/updated, as well as flash). Following (from 2012) Mozilla community support instructions, went into about:config and dbl clicked on browser.backspace_action and changed value from 0 to 2. This stopped the problem everywhere but Firefox on Facebook (I make sure cursor is flashing in a text box, trying to post, comment on another post or typing in messenger). The backspace key does nothing, just sits there. I type a lot...and trying to correct typos is a nightmare! I don't know if this is Firefox related, or Facebook. Have reported it to Facebook every day, but thats like beating my head against a wall, ugh! Help!?!

Hello all,

I am using the latest Firefox on a Windows 7 32 bit machine.

Unfortunately Firefox has been running very unstable for the last couple of weeks. Below I describe some of the problems:-

-Hanging momentarily ie. cannot click on links - Getting black patches on pages - Pages suddenly started to flash quickly

Things I have done to alleviate the problem

- Have refreshed and reset to default settings. - Have disable hardware acceleration in options - Have uninstalled graphics card driver (ATI), removed card completely and been running with embedded Intel graphics.

Unfortunately none of the above have solved the problem. Please also note I have a couple of addons installed but been running the same configuration on a 64 bit Windows 7 machine and everything works ok.

Willing to send crash reports, I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help.

Kind regards,

Kyprianos

I have trouble accessing some websites where is CloudFlare protection. It keeps repeating and repeating check of browser and it never ends. Example of website which don't work: https://ddlcmods.fun/ . My computer was completely reinstalled week ago to Windows 10 and Firefox is fresh too so there can't be problems with them. I was googling it and found that can be problem with time zones which I tried to change and no luck. Also something with DNS where I don't try because I'm afraid of doing something wrong. And I tried same website with Windows edge, there was no problem, it successfully passed check. I hope for fast response. Here is screenshot of problem below.

Hello

I am currently using Ubuntu 18.04 and Firefox Quantum 59.0.2 64-bit. On some websites, I am unable to select the password field either using tab or a mouse click to be able to enter a password. This leaves me unable to login. However, this doesnt seem to happen on all password fields.

For example on https://reddit.com I can enter username and password on the field on the right. However, if I click on Login hyperlink on 'Want to join? Log in or sign up in seconds.', I get a popup which I am unable to click the password field on.

I have also seen this problem on https://abnzb.com

I have tried to run in safe-mode but the problem persists.

My addons are Gnome shell integration, Enhanced Steam, HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock origin.

Also, to add to this. When I right click on the password text fields, I do not get a menu popup. I am not sure if this is related or not.

The server at www.behindthevoiceactors.com is taking too long to respond.

It has been on & off before but I wasn't able to access the site at all today. Is this because of any of the add-ons I have, what is going on?

My bookmarks have vanished. This problem began when I had iTunes and Firefox open. My iTunes songs were "skipping," which had never happened before. I closed Firefox and iTunes, and I ran my Piriform CCleaner program to clear out temporary files, which I do regularly.

I ended up updating iTunes to make it work, but not before my bookmarks disappeared with the message on my browser: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem."

Worse, Firefox won't allow me to add new bookmarks.

I followed all topics in support and nothing has changed this problem. I've restarted and shut down the computer. I ran a full-system security scan. I even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

Please help!

I'm used to some settings of the old firefox (56) and I want to know how you can get them back.

1. I do not want to see any icon when I open a new tab. But even when I turned off all the items related to this in about:config, I still see the fox icon there. How to fix it?

2. How to make a new tab open to the right of the current open, but not at the end of the list of tabs?

3. How do I make a new tab open by double-clicking on the current tab? Perhaps there is a code for userChrome.sss. Could you help me with this?

Thank you very much for your help.

This morning Firefox upgraded its self. Since then I've not been able to click on links in e-mail to open up web pages. Every time I manually launch Firefox it asks me if I want to make make it my default browser. I reply Yes, so it asks me which account (my or the Administrator) I want to use. It does not appear to make any difference as Firefox does not become my default browser.

In increasing levels of desperation I've tried:

  • Tools | Options | Make Default
  • Rebooting the PC
  • Deleting my Firefox Profile
  • Reinstalling the latest version of Firefox
  • Reinstalling an old version of Firefox

No luck. Following other threads in this forum I've selected Start -> Control Panel -> Default Programs -> Set Default programs

Firefox is not listed.

As can be seen from the two screen shots, I can see the information on the Schwab.com dividend page with Edge, but not with Firefox. I called Schwab. They told me to clear cache. I did, but that didn't help. It is apparently a Firefox issue, or a Firefox/Schwab issue. I prefer Firefox, but since I use this dividend info all the time, I will be forced to use Edge. I would appreciate any suggestions.

XMarks is closing. Eversync is unreliable. So the only sync in town for Firefox users is Firefox Sync.

That makes it a shame that Mozilla doesn't have a review page, where users can rate Firefox Sync and talk over their experiences. It would greatly reassure potential users.

Also, Firefox Sync is under-documented. Does it have, like XMarks, a facility by which users can access their bookmarks when they cannot access their local browsers, e.g. when travelling? No way of knowing, without trying it! Does it sync Folders and the arrangement of links within folders accurately? No way of knowing, without trying it! Does it allow uploads to the server, downloads from the server? No way of knowing, without trying it!

Come on Firefox, a few pages of documentation, please!
