All I'd like to know is how to completely disable the ability of tabs crashing for any reason at all, permanently. I'd very seriously would rather the computer freeze or risk hardware damage, whatever pref(s) listed and unlisted I need to enable or disable I can put in lock file or anything. -Thanks!

Hi,

I downloaded JDownloader yesterday. It forcefully installed some adware which became the default search engine, can't recall its name and Avast Antivirus. There was no option to uncheck them while installing. Since I didn't like JD at all so I uninstalled them all using Revo Uninstaller. Now while I searched something in the url bar few times that adware's page searched my keywords. I opened my settings and I got this message Your browser is being managed by your organization. PFA. This is my personal laptop connected to my personal wifi. Can I delete everything related to this junk without reinstalling FF? http://www.upl.co/uploads/14291556FF1580471775.jpg http://www.upl.co/uploads/161919FF-11580471781.jpg

The Mozilla Answer page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_copying-files-between-profile-folders, provides some pretty good information about which files to recover, but, doesn't include the general population's need to recover their last sessions, so a mention on this same page would be extremely helpful. Next, I found the places.sqlite file will update automatically without shutting down Firefox (most likely when the computer is put to sleep and then awakened). A warning about this little known file updating would be helpful to those who learned about their lost history, but choose to wait until later, like recovering it prior to shutting down, but they will have lost the opportunity when the places.sqlite file self updates itself automatically (who knows exactly when or why) I'd like to see this important information placed your answer on this same (above) troubleshooting page, because when I loose history caused by a proper shut down, I'll need to your page infor to remind me what to be cautious about. And I don't believe you have created a back up file to places.sqlite to which I can recover and rename yet, because I believe the closest name to it has very little memory in it, but I could be wrong.

System suddenly changed IE to default browser for Thunderbird messages. Going through Settings, Defaults, Firefox is not an option, the icon is not there. The main issue is Thunderbird now opens messages in IE all of a sudden instead of Firefox. In Firefox Options, I click on set default and it comes up with IE or search store for an app. I'd be grateful for any help.

A few days ago I started getting full page spam messages when looking at threads in one forum only. I have to keep backing out or closing out of Firefox. Initially FF blocked them, but not anymore. Norton never blocked them.

These messages only come up when using one FF profile, not another. They also do not show up when using a Chromebook, so I presume the problem is on my end.

I have cleared all cookies & cache and did a complete scan with Norton, Malwarebytes, & AdwCleaner. Even restored Windows 7 back to an earlier time. But none of this helped.

They are full page messages & say they're from AT&T, Walmart, or Visa. However the addresses all start out with: happy.luckyparkclub.com/………..

Sometimes the messages appears right away & sometimes it takes a few minutes.

I cleared FF cookies, went back to the forum, & then looked at the cookies again. I noticed that happy.luckyparkclub.com and dbmtrk.xyz both appeared in the cookies list at the same time, 23 seconds. The forum cookie was time stamped at 22 seconds.

If I look at the forum using a different FF profile there is no problem & neither of these 2 cookies are there.

If I open a New Private Window in the problem profile then I don't get the messages either, at least not yet.

What does the Private Window NOT access that the regular window does?

Which profile folder or file could be causing the problem?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello and thanks in advance for your help!

For many years, the content management system that I have been using has worked just fine with previous versions of Firefox. To access the backend area for a client of mine to edit their own website I built for them, they would go to their website and hit Control-Y on any page of their website. This would bring up the login prompt window so they could login and start live editing their site. Now, when I hit Control-Y, nothing happens.

I saw a previous post that mentioned adjusting (allowing) keyboard shortcuts in the settings area. I did this but unfortunately, this didn't solve my issue.

Can someone tell me why this no longer works with Firefox and what the possible fix / workaround might be?

Thank you so much!!

About 2 months ago, it started that I could not sign onto the Kellogg's web site ( https://www.kelloggsfamilyrewards.com/en_US/collect-points/overview.html )

  I have 2 pc's and it happens on both.

Then Today, I got a new laptop, and I get the same thing. I click on the captcha button, and it goes to a check mark. But the other browsers send me to a check list to fill out. On firefox, I get aq check when I click on the captcha, THEN The captcha expires before I get signed on. I can sign on with microsoft's browser, and chrome. I have cleared the catch, etc.

  On my new laptop, the same thing happens and since his was the first time to sign on at kellogg's, there was nothing saved.

I have been trying for weeks to solve this problem and figure out how it happened but I cannot download any type of file on Google Drive on Firefox and it's been bothering me. I have cleared my cookies, cache, history, saved logins, restarted on private browsing, changed numerous settings and deleted and reinstall Firefox and Abode Flash. Nothing has worked. I even deleted McAfee protection in case it was a firewall problem but that didn't work either.

I'm only having this problem on my HP laptop and on this browser. Downloading google drive files works on my Dell Laptop through any browser.

If anyone has any suggestions as to why this is happening and how to solve it, I would be very grateful. I provided a screenshot of the error every time I try to download a file.

How to prevent Firefox from removing my extension's data when I remove debug version?

I have an extension with id setup in manifest like this: ``` "browser_specific_settings": { "gecko": { "id": "{e3ec45ef-43ba-499d-8469-6d0e2f06921f}", "stric… (read more)

I have an extension with id setup in manifest like this:

``` "browser_specific_settings": {

   "gecko": {
     "id": "{e3ec45ef-43ba-499d-8469-6d0e2f06921f}",
     "strict_min_version": "42.0"
   }
 },

```

which uses indexedDB(PouchDB). I installed that extension from addons.mozilla.org, disabled, installed temporarily version for developing and Firefox removes data of both extensions(cuz they have the same id) every time I remove only temporarily version.

This does not happen when I don't set id in manifest(temporarily version has random id in this case), but it's not a solution cuz some API's and Android version of Firefox requires id to be set manually

How to prevent Firefox from removing data of normal extension when I remove temporarily one?

Just in case someone wants to reproduce the issue:

1. Install this extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tagit/?src=search
2. Go to extension's page (button with eyes on browser's panel)
3. Go to "Tags" page and create any tag(write something and press Enter)
4. Disable this extension on about:addons page
5. Clone its repository and checkout to commit where id is in manifest `git clone https://github.com/DevAlone/tagit.git; git checkout 8e0d04201865fd7b7543b167279a045c89408d5c`
6. Install dependencies and build `npm install; npm run build`
7. Install that temporarily extension(`build` dir) on about:debugging page
8. Remove that temporarily extension on about:debugging page
9. Enable normal extension on about:addons page
10. Go to the Tags page again to see that database is gone

Google Sheets - using + or * signs don't move the cursor, so previous cell address is overwritten in the formula

[Added an attachment to simplify the explanation]

Suppose that I want to write the formula A1+A2 (or A1*A2). If I click A1 and then use the '+' sign. The sign it appears right after the cursor, so the cursor it's now between the A1 and the '+' sign, and the A1 text in the formula remains -I would say- selected as if nothing was written. So whatever I write or click afterwards overwrites the A1 cell reference making it impossible to write a formula.

I'm in Win10 with Firefox v69.0, both latest versions in English with a Spanish Intl. keyboard and layout. Checked in a couple of spreadsheets including a blank one.

Things that I have already tried:

- Disabled all add-ons on all tests

- Tried doing the same on Chrome, Opera, Edge (edgeHTML), Safari and FF for Mac. Only happens in FF both Mac and Win.

- It only happens when the previous cell was introduced using the mouse or the arrow keys, not if it was written.

- Only happens when using the '+' (or '*') from the regular keyboard, not the one from the numerical keypad.

- Switched to Spanish Windows and Firefox. Doesn't work either.

- Tested old Firefox versions, including, ESR.

- Changed the keyboard layout. With some of them it works (US, UK, US_Intl, FR, PL programmers) and with others doesn't (ES, DE, IT, FI and serbian). Moreover, few of them (FR and FI) works for one sign (+ or *) but not for the other.

Any ideas? Thanks
