I was able to edit my Firefox desktop (shortcuts) icons to a custom image. All of a sudden, after repairing my system, I no longer see the "Change Icon" on the properties of any Firefox generated shortcuts.

All I get are shortcuts with the Firefox logo, I need to change them. Anyone know how?

I have custom icons for all my important shortcuts. They always showed my images, not the Firefox image. This is critical for me.

Assuming the image file has actually uploaded, you will see all of the Firefox shortcuts. They were ALL custom images until the other day.

I received an email I know has an attachment but it does not show anything in the body of the email when I'm in Firefox. When I open Gmail in Opera or Safari, and look at that same email, the attachment and content is there. But in Firefox, there is no content in the body of the email whatsoever.

See screenshots. A detail that may or may not be related: I have disabled cache from about:config (browser.cache.disk.enable and browser.cache.memory.enable) because enabling these makes Firefox crash as soon as it is opened (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1180306).

Also this issue happens on Chrome as well, but does not happen on Microsoft Edge browser.

Things I have already tried: 1. Enable/disable hardware acceleration 2. Update gpu drivers to latest 3. Switch between the onboard gpu (Intel HD 4600) and discrete (Nvidia 840M) 4. Refresh Firefox <-- the first video on Youtube plays fine after refreshing Firefox, but after this the problem is back. 5. Disable all add-ons/try safe mode 6. Try the suggestions from Fixing common audio/video issues page (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-common-audio-and-video-issues) and other related pages that I was suggested when I entered this question.

None of these solutions have worked. Appreciate any help/ideas. Thanks!

Websites with expandable frames don't scale correctly with the sidebar

The specific page I'm looking at is https://www.theeditorsmarket.com/product/ready-to-wear/trousers/gwayn-cross-flap-wide-leg-pants-db (but this problem applies to all product pages on this website).

On the right side of the website, there are clickable, expandable frames that show more details about the product: "Details", "Other colours", "Other items in this look", and "Delivery and returns". However, having the tab bar, toolbars and especially the sidebar activated interferes with the scaling of the website, to the point that these four frames are pushed off the screen (and can't be accessed by scrolling down either, as that simply scrolls down through the product photos on the left).

I've already tried deactivating all my add-ons and reactivating them one by one.

I've included screenshots to show the following, which I discovered through experimentation:

1. The only way to have all four frames fully visible and accessible is to enter full-screen view and not have the sidebar activated (i.e. to have nothing on top of or beside the website).

2. Once I exit full-screen view, so that the tab bar and address bar/toolbar are displayed, the bottom two frames are pushed off the screen ("Other items in this look" and "Delivery and returns").

3. Once I enable the bookmark toolbar, "Other colours" is pushed off the screen as well.

4. Once I enable the sidebar, the problem becomes even worse, because the top "Details" frame is no longer scrollable. This means that part of the text in the "Details" frame is unreadable.

5. The sidebar problem is not limited to Tree Style Tab, but also occurs when the sidebar is used for other things (e.g. bookmarks, history)

6. Entering full-screen view while the sidebar is enabled does not solve the problem. The bottom three frames are still off-screen, and the top frame is still not scrollable.

It would be really great if anyone could help fix this problem. Thanks in advance! :)

I have tried restoring from back up, I have done all the places.sqlite stuff that was suggested. I have used safemode. I have verified integrity. I have done all the steps listed in the support so far. My bookmarks are gone. Where are they stored and how can I access them? Can I downgrade and will that restore my bookmarks folder? Or is it in my old firefox data folder is there a way to open a list of bookmarks?

I have four browsers, some of them are Firefox based: Firefox 61 (64-bit latest version). Comodo Ice Dragon 60.0.2.10 (64-bit) (Portable Edition), Pale Moon (the old FF version, 27.9.3), Opera and IE. I also have a few search engines, including Yahoo, Bing, Google, Duck Duck Go, and others for some specific sites search that I added or compiled, like Firefox Support (this very site).

Google search with safe search turned off works without problem with old FF Pale Moon and and IE, but not with Firefox 61, Ice Dragon 60 and Opera. There is no problem with any other search engines on any browser, all working well with safe search off.Hence, I believe there is a (intentional) problem not letting Google safe search to be turned off with FF versions 60 and 61, and Opera.

Firefox is my main and default browser, and Google the main search, so I need them work with safe search off. What can I do to reverse this situation and make them Work as they always had. please?

Hi,

I'm on a Mac OS. I was just clicking on google search engine link for what looked it was a legitimate Socan.ca link. In order to view the contents it asked me to update my Adobe Flash Player. It then tried to stop the process but it wouldn't let me and now http://search.anysearchmanager.com has take over my Firefox. This fee Adobe download also downloaded Advanced Mac Cleaner and when I try to drag it to the garbage it reads: The item “Advanced Mac Cleaner” can’t be moved to the Trash because it can’t be deleted.

There were two icons and it allowed me to delete the one that read it had been opened today.

Anybody able to help me here?

Any tips on how to fix this?

Can someone help? I used to always have an extra tab at the top in Firefox, but now it is gone, and I have to click the + each time to get a new tab. I probably messed with the settings, but now don't know how to return to the way I previously had it set up. See screenshot here: https://s8.postimg.cc/oruyv7c6t/1_Tabin_Fire_Fox.png

I would prefer to have a new tab in waiting, like on Chrome. https://s8.postimg.cc/6qbtx0sc5/chrometabs.png

Hi,

I got an issue with Firefox on Linux. I have a link to the page where all the videos of my subscribed channels are shown in my bookmarks. This is the way i usually open YouTube. When I click on that link, YouTube is loading the page very slowly. When I click on any video there, the video is working. But if I click on any links to any videos on YouTube (e.g. on Google Search) or if I just open a video from my subscriber box not by clicking it directly but by clicking with the mouse wheel and therefore opening it in a new tab, the video won't work. The videobox is at first off-placed to the right and loading, then the video starts for about one second or so and then the playback terminates and it says "An error occured, try again later".

This happens everytime, since I first installed Firefox and after numerous reinstalls. I looked up everything i could find on that issue but nothing could help. There was the thing with the hardware acceleration, disabled it, nothing changed.

I really don't know, what I should do. I really want to use Firefox, mainly because I never really did and wanted to give it a try now on Linux (since my beloved Maxthon is not really available there) and secondly because all the Blink stuff feels oddly laggy.

If someone knows how to get rid of this issue then please tell me!

Thanks in advance.

Not sure when this started - i.e. with a recent windows update or with a mozilla update. I have tried to resync mozilla too.

See attached image - basically on starting mozilla/google I do not have any borders showing for the search fields and no pictures show up - I thought at first it might be "Pocket" related but attached image is with Pocket Disabled... This I believe was working absolutely fine yesterday - though I didn't use the computer for anything other than flying P3D.

Can someone kindly help me with this?

Occasionally, I bump into a web page that tells me that Microsoft has found has found a virus and has locked my computer and provides a number to call for support, blah, blah, blah. I can't shut down the page or Firefox normally so I go into Task Manager and shut down the Firefox process. If I attempt to open Firefox again it restores the previous session and I am locked again. If I restart the computer before reopening Firefox things are fine and I go to my homepage. Virus checking shows no beasties. Can I disable Firefox restoring a session after a crash? I can't imagine a situation where a Firefox crash would cause me to loose irreplaceable data.

Thanks
