Multiple websites will not load properly in Firefox unless I am in private browsing. Some examples are netflix.com, xfinity.com, pinterest.com, and many others. Elements of the page will not load, or will not be functional. If I load the same pages in private browsing, it works fine.

Also, these same pages will work if I load them within a few minutes of launching the browser. An already open tab will usually continue to work, but if I open a new tab or reload after the initial few minutes, they stop working.

Now that I Ant video downloader is blocked by Firefox, I need help finding a replacement. I've tried to download Flash Video Downloader and Video Downloader Professional. I keep getting the message: "Download failed. Please check your connection." But my internet connection is fine. Finally I was able to install Video Downloader Professional, but it cannot seem to grab the video from any webpage I am on. It is very frustrating. Any suggestions?

When I click on a link, I want it to open in a new window. In Oprions/General/Tabs.....I have NO boxes checked. Is there a bug in the latest version - or someway to get it back the way it used to work? Now when I click on a link it opens in the same window - not a new one. I now have to hold the shift key down when I click on the link to open in a new window.

Home page, new pages or tabs work fine until a software update is loaded. Then my home page and the search engine is changed to Bing. This has been happening on upgrades for several months, and I have not been able to get a satisfactory answer from any search effort or support screen.

I have found article after article which tell me how to set my defaults, and I think I know how to do that, but nothing about how to solve my problem on updates, and why it keeps changing, even if that is what the article title says.

I'm to the point that if I can't get this resolved, I will switch my browser, which would be a shame since I have always liked Mozilla browsers, Netscape and Firefox.

An online magazine in the UK uses Pagesuite to print pages from it. This facility hasn't worked since the beginning of 2019. Any thoughts?

The PageSuite window comes up, tells me it is loading the selected page(s) and waits while I choose the Printer details. When I press OK that small window goes away and PrintSuite says 'Printing Finished'. Now that's what happened before the New Year, so everything appears to be fine.

It took me some time to figure out that I needed to see what was in the printer queue. That showed nothing.

I eventually thought to set up the printer queue window before I pressed OK. When I do that, the file is sent to the printer and it is immediately removed from the queue. The file name is in the list for a fraction of a second, no more. Just enough time for the file name to register on the screen. So that's the problem I have run into.

Now, details:

Operating system - Windows 10 Home 64-bit

Web browser - Firefox Quantum, v 66.0.3

Printer - Brother HL-1210W

Instead of access to the page I get this message; file:///temp/mozilla_chris0/is-all-economics-local-speech-by-andy-haldane.pdf . . . and an uncontrolled avalanche of tabs opening, continuously, (have seen more than 1,000 in a very short timescale, which, if I then close the tabs, Firefox completely collapses.

Please advise. Thank you.

My installation of Firefox always starts up in windowed mode, even though I only ever use it in fullscreen. I thought that it might have been that I enabled privacy.resistFingerprinting, but that wasn't it. I also tried refreshing and then reinstalling Firefox, and that didn't work either. Could it maybe be some other setting that I might not even remember having changed? Or is my Sync account just broken?

Hi, I really like Firefox and really appreciate that way that Mozilla look after my security but I cannot get my head around the fact that you have disabled one of the most useful add ons that I have ever had Ad-Block?

I had ads and the way that they interfere wiith my user experience, Ad Block, as far as I can see, has done an excellent job of keeping unneccessary rubbish that I am not interested in, off my screen.

This is made especially difficult as there does not appear to be a replacement tool in your recomended list. I wouyld really appreciate your assistance in solving this problem. Regards Paul Carroll

Specific you tube music live stream. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHW1oY26kxQ

This live stream crashes in FF always. Other similar types of live streams work just fine. This specific live stream works just fine in all other browsers. I have tested with add ons, without add ons, on windows, on Mac and they all crash on this specif live stream.

At this point I have no idea how to further try and resolve this besides use Chrome.

So today on my work computer ( i am still having issues with my personal computer(s) 10.6... ( see/read the previous ticket which is been closed not that it solved anything) because lastpass addon signature signing is not valid according to Firefox and nor can I download an older version that is compatible ). I went to do something on my work Firefox profile which I just recently created less than a week ago. I immediately noticed that tree style tabs was not open for some reason so I went to toggle it back on because sometimes it gets popped off, I couldn't find the icon so I went over to add-ons where I immediately notice that I had "no"? add-ons I'm sorry they're called extensions now in the new button that said unsupported. And guess what was in the unsupported category lastpass and tree style taps with a big message about not being verified and that I should click for more info which tells me to contact the developer and blah blah blahat signing is required in Firefox 57 and above.... and now all of a sudden Now I have a big yellow bar "one or more add-ons cannot be verifiedd and has been disabled". So I went back and looked at the version of last passed since I apparently have an outdated version!!! 4.27.2.10 last updated May 2nd 2019 okay so what's the next course of action? I can either remove the addon or find a replacement, find a replacement doesn't find lastpass. However a search does, and guess what version it is............ it is the same version! If it weren't for auto fill on IOS and android I would go back to a text document because this is getting ridiculous, because it is not on all of my devices and it spontaneously disappears.

I know this is a Firefox problem but this will require going to Mozilla to get this thing fixed.

That's all I can think of for now other than frustration frustration frustration frustration frustration and I probably need to reopen my old ticket, which said wait for an update that we'll never come because the addon system changed.


So I just went to my personal profile, same issue. Both profiles have been open ) simultaneously with no issues( since yesterday with the only thing changing that the computer has been put to sleep and woken back up. Here's a screen shot of all my add-ons on there..... Oddly enough the only thing that survived is "multi pass" which I haven't gotten around to touching yet.



So I just closed out of everything, unchecked reopen windows on login, did a full restart. And my work Firefox profile has my 2 extensions back but my personal profile does not. And Firefox things "these extensions do not meet current standards so they have been deactivated". My work computer is brand-new and I received it in October .... so? My personal Firefox profile was created in October or November 2018, and work profiles was created within the last two weeks (i moved from Safari too many tabs and i needed side tabs...). All should have current add-ons using "current standards" but Firefox doesn't think so?

I know this is a Firefox problem but this will require going to Mozilla to get this thing fixed, so well unlikely I will be CCing to firefox/Mozilla.

Hello,

My add-ons have stopped working and are shown as Legacy ones.

Also I can't install new ones.

I believe this must have been caused by the recent Firefox bug.

I have noted that in about:config xpinstall.signatures.required has been set to false, so it looks like the fix has been applied.

For me this is not working and add-ons are still shown as legacy.

Is there anything I can do to cure this ?

Regards,

Nick.
