Incomplete messages: I frequently receive messages from advertisers or newsletters containing multiple photos, posters, or the like, which never get filled in. They show up as empty boxes with a photo icon in the upper left corner. Sometimes they sit for many minutes and remain blank. The problem is not present when I use the Chrome browser.

What do I have to do to see the intended messages?

i uninstalled GOGGLE tonight because, I HATE GOOGLE for several reasons. BUT since the uninstall, they are blocking not sites but CONTENT. I do a search and the content is on lots of URLS. BUT GOOGLE INTERCEPTS THE SITE, HIJACKS Firefox AND SAYS: GOOGLE 404. That’s an error. The requested URL [inappropriate link] was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

i KNOW its a lie as the URL/SITE comes up, I SEE THE CONTENT then GOOGLE "KNOCKS IT DOWN AND SAYS: GOOGLE 404. That’s an error. The requested URL [inappropriate link] was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

BUT IT DID IN FACT "FIND" IT, I SAW IT FOR A BRIEF MOMENT.

ANYONE?

I have used firefox for and until yesterday closing it with the upper right X simply closed it and upon reopening mys previous session was always restored (as selected in my options). Suddenly, since yesterday's update this did not happen and i have lost my tabs (despite having again selected the session restore option immediately).

Furthermore, reading the support article the option session restore does NOT appear in my menu as indicated and I can find no information on what to do about fixing that.

I am also trying to log in and requested my username but no email arrived and so I have had to register anew to access support.

Having long been puzzled by what Firefox considers to be my location, I have tried to find out how to set or change it. I followed all leads that seemed promising. the most direct lead was through the Menu (three bars in my PC-based Firefox). It does not contain the Settings option, nor any kind of 'More' option. I even used the about:config lead simply to find it is enabled. All I know is that Firefox holds a Location other than what I would want to to. But I simply cannot find a way to identify where its held; so I can change it.

Given how straight forward this need is I am puzzled on how hard it is to find out how to change it. Can someone help, other than by repeating the common instructions for using the Menu? I attach my list in case it helps.

Hi everyone. Weird issue.

So I reinstalled Firefox, and went about my business.. .and found that the font in gmail/google calendar is... well.. not smooth anymore.

At first I was just seeing things... and now its blatantly obvious the font has been changed somehow.

I've tried refreshing, safe mode, new profile, reinstalling, no add-ons, turning certain add-ons off, etc. Nothing seems to be working.

In comparison, the font in Opera and Chrome are exactly the same, and the font in Firefox is slightly off. and now I'm noticing this in almost all websites - it just seems the font in gmail/google calendar is obviously not smooth. What did i do, and how do i fix this? :(

Trying to open books in Google Play Books.

I have tried in Chrome, Firefox, IE, Vivaldi and Opera but all with the same result: "If you want to read books in Google Play you must allow cookies from books.googleusercontent.com"

However, what ever I do allow books.googleusercontent.com or cookies from same i does not work

Eg. Opera: Advanced Settings - Privacy & Security - Site Setting - Cookies - Allow - Add - books.googleusercontent.com

As mentioned, this is an issue in 5 browsers and I can't help thinking that it must be Google Play that has an issue.

I have tried Google Help forums but with no answers

I cant be right the every user has to go deep down in settings to be able to read the books (I'm frustrated, admit it)

Anyone knowing anything?

Take care

When using Google Forms, the normal options on all forms like: "Preview", "Settings", etc are invisible. I'm able to see them if I hover over them, but they are not visible otherwise. I just did some troubleshooting with Geek Squad and determined it's a Firefox issue. The problem does not exist using Chrome. See attached screen shots please.

I was able to use Google Forms in the past, this started a few months ago as I recall.

Thanks in advance for you help.

This may not be the best place to ask this, but I can't find a more appropriate place.

I'm currently on Firefox 67.0.4.

I'm using the javascript debugger in Web Developer Tools to debug problems in our applications. I often need to copy cookie or header values out of the network panel (or wherever), and I find it is very hard to do this reliably. When I try to use the mouse to select a value, it often highlights more than I'm selecting, and then when I press Ctrl-c and then paste it into another destination, it often pastes my previous clipboard value, which indicates that it didn't copy anything.

Sometimes it seems like the only strategy that sometimes works is to only copy "most" of the string, leaving off the first or last character, and simply remember what that character is, and manually add it when I paste the value.

I often have to attempt the copy several times before it actually works.

I have had this problem for at least 6 months now, I have not posted about it sooner because I didn't have the time and I thought it was a something that will be fixed after a couple updates.

I followed this: - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-hangs-or-not-responding

and I have: -

1) Created a new places database

2) Turned off hardware acceleration

3) Started firefox in safe mode and disabling all my addons

4) I have no duplicate session restore files

5) My proxy settings was set to use my System's proxy, which I didn't set up for my system. I then put it on 'No proxy'


All of the above did not stop the freezing. Here's more info based on the article: -

6) Freezes during YouTube videos so Flash videos are not the problem

7) It freezes within 10 minutes of starting Firefox. Sometimes less.

8) Doesn't specifically happen when I download or save files.

9) It doesn't hang when I quit it.

10) I don't use a Thinkpad.

Please help. Thanks.

Some ads are being blocked in Firefox, but for the life of me, I cannot find where I might have an ad blocker turned on in Firefox or installed as a plug-in or extension. Chrome displays the ads correctly. Example site is www.milesawaygrandparenting.com. There are three ads at the bottom of most pages which display in Chrome but not (for me, anyway) in Firefox.

Where might I look or troubleshoot to find out where the ads are being blocked? I have McAfee Total Protection installed, and Privacy Badger also.

I can't delete autocomplete entries in any way. Clearing the complete form and search history does nothing, and using down-arrow to select entries in form blanks, and hitting DELETE, SHIFT+DELETE, CTRL+DELETE all do nothing, and while CTRL+SHIFT+DELETE will pop up the "Clear History" pane, it still does nothing when I select it to delete both form/search entries and cache.

I have Firefox set to not remember form or search history, and this has gone far beyond annoying. It's not an addon interfering, either, because I have tried it in Firefox Safe Mode (all addons disabled) as well, with no change.
