I really hope this issue isn't impossible to solve. The reason for wanting to disable the private browsing should be obvious - you may have kids in your house using your computer and chances are you don't want them to have the option of going places they shouldn't without their parents knowing about it.

An answer would be greatly appreciated!

I hate it how I have to first click on the "View history, saved bookmarks, and more" button in the top right, and then mouse over to bookmarks on the menu, and then click on bookmarks just to access them. Is there any way to set up a shortcut to the main bookmark menu? I went into customize and placed the "Bookmark Menu" button to on, but that only shows bookmark options on one click, not all my bookmarks.

This has never happened to me before but today when watching some videos the player size changes leaving a lot of white space on the sides of the video. It seems to be that videos that would generally have black bars on the side are now showing up in a smaller video player but this is not the case with other browsers. For some reason I am unable to post screenshots. Any help is appreciated.

I don't know why, but my Firefox started to freeze, then not responding message appear for a few seconds (~5 seconds) quite frequent. I think it started to do this for like 2-3 days I think. I tried it in "Safe mode", and it seems it runs without this issue. I'm using only 2 "Add-ons": Adblock Plus 3.3.1 and Popup Blocker Ultimate 9.5. After seeing the problem appears to be gone when it runs in "Safe mode", I tried then to run it again, first with "Adblock Plus 3.3.1" disabled, the problem was back, then I reactivated it, and disabled "Popup Blocker Ultimate 9.5", still I had the same problem, then I tried with both of them disabled, but still the problem persisted. After each try I've restarted Firefox. Seeing that the problem still persist with both add-ons I have disabled, it can't be an add-ons problem. Can you think what else can cause this problem? When this occurs, I've kept an eye on Task manager, and Firefox doesn't seem to use more resources then normal (CPU, Memory, Disk, Network or GPU).

Hi,

My Firefox has picked up some unwanted adware/malware that I am unable to find or kill. I am using Windows 7 Pro x64 and if you look at the Task Manager these unwanted processes show up with titles such as these:

1) Technology and Programming News 2) Celebrity Daily 3) Health Tube TV

All are prefixed with a Firefox logo and it is impossible to kill the process My anti-virus/malware software does not find it as it hides itself very well indeed.

Even if Firefox is NOT run after a re-boot this adware (for want of a better description) switches itself on to run in the background. This may take several minutes before activation though. No add-ons show up in the Firefox securtiy section.

Can you suggest how it can be defeated, removed altogether and prevented for re-occurring again please?

Thank you for your help.

Regards,

Dave

when i click Advanced, the following message shows : "www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed. Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT" (image attached : image1)

I try this solution : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1116116 which is shows something like this (image2)

Problem:

Unable to disable/modify default Quick Find keybindings (the apostrophe key and the forward slash key).

Attempted (and Failed) Solutions:

(1) Not able to use Murphy's solution (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1215667), because there is no 'Options' subheading in my 3-bar drop-down menu and I am otherwise unable to find a 'Browsing' subheading.

(2) Not able to use cor-el's solution (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/984845), because the modification suggested is no longer supported by my version of Firefox (61.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux Xenial).

(3) Not able to use suggestion at https://techdows.com/2018/06/disable-quick-find-firefox.html, because ‘accessibility.typeaheadfind.manual‘ preference is not listed. Toggling value of 'accessibility.typeaheadfind', 'accessibility.typeaheadfind.flashBar', and 'accessibility.typeaheadfind.linksonly' did not disable Quick Find after restarting Firefox.

(4) I also tried adding the preference 'searchkeys.disable.all' to 'about:config' and setting its boolean value to 'true' (I am unable to recall source of this suggestion), but it also did not work.

Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for your time and effort!

First an error occurred while i was trying to watch videos on youtube something like "this video is not available" (also happened on videos i have watched like not two days ago), i decided to uninstall and install it again to see if that fixed something. The first time nothing changed, i did that again and it seems to work now. But when i try to search something on youtube and the drop down list appears, it doesnt let me click on any of the options, and the settings button on the video( u know the one we use to change resolution etc. )doesnt do anything. Currently i got Windows 10 firefox 61.0 i got no plugins installed other than Shockwave Flash 30.0 r0, OpenH264 Video Codec by Cisco and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google. Thanks for your time!
