Setting up a new LG laptop. Downloaded Flash and Shockwave Flash but they don't appear in my add-ons. Looked on the add-on pages but cannot find any that activate either. I have it on another laptop and it works fine (Shockwave Flash 32.0.r0). Even searched for that exact add-on but it returns no such program. The icon for Flash (on the URL line) doesn't appear on any page. Obviously, I can't play on-line games or watch any content unless Flash is available. FireFox is updated to the latest version as is Win10. Using WebRoot and Malwarebytes. Any ideas as to why this is?

I had about 7 or 8 favorite sites in a menu bar across the top of my firefox screen. I did something to make them disappear. I don't know how to get them back. To create them I just grabbed the URL and moved it to this bar, and it would then become a clickable link after that. I can't find out how to create them again.

I open a new window, and it says, "Google Search". So I type in a search item, the result comes back from YAHOO search. I have tried several times, without success, to change it, or remove YAHOO Search engine. Yahoo doesn't appear in the engine selections, and google does. I select it, save, restart, and BOOM... I get Yahoo rsults from the google search.... What gives?

Thanks...

Second image is what screen looks like after clicking max box. Note second uses default background color I picked. on bottom is part of Word Window that I shouldn't be seeing.

Switching to basic page style, I can get to the unstyled content of the page, but why aren't the styles loading?

I allow JavaScript for these pages & disable Adblock Plus, and can't think of any other add-ons that might interfere.

Hello

Is there some documentation to explain what the font size options mean?

I apologize but I havent studied fonts, I just use the one I feel most comfortable with.

Generally, for me, the font size is too small. And the Adv. page is confusing.

How does the minimum font size relate to the proportional or monospace sizes?

The proportional has serif, sans-serif. The the next 2 opts are serif and sans-serif. Are they related? Because I can set serif to sans-serif and sans-serif to serif.

Att. my settings

for the last 2-3 updates everytime I go to start firefox I get a busy cursor and firefox won't open. When I check task manager firefox process is listed but I can not end it. Als a consent ui process appears for a split second, then vanishes, then reappears and vanishes in an infininte cycle untill I log out of windows to force it to close.

I browsed to mozilla install location and deleted the only .xpi I didn't recognise a doh-rollout@mozilla.org.xpi and thankfully I can launch firefox again. As this problem seems to come back every update I'm hoping someone has an explaination and fix.

I can login to this forum (and post a question). I suspect that it's because my e-mail is so very short (7 characters) that some reg-ex filters think it's not valid - but it is. When I enter my e-mail in the login screen, I always get a red suggestion for another domain, but my e-mail ends with just "c.dk" which is valid, and having just to characters before the @ makes the e-mail address very short.

I have a new copy of Firefox, Version 72.0.1 64bit, installed on a new desktop computer running Windows10 Home Version 1903 64bit and computer is up to date.

Firefox is not my default browser. 

Firefox Windows and Tabs History are set to Default.

For all the many years that I have used Firefox I have closed Ff from EXIT in the menu so that when I restart (from my Windows toolbar or Windows Desktop) all of my open regular windows and tabs are immediately available. Ff still offers this option according to Troubleshooting in Help,see IMAGE 1. Now when I click on EXIT I get a box telling me that I am about to close all windows and tabs, see IMAGE 2.
I prefer not to rely on Restore Previous Session, because in the past if Ff crashed, closed the browser for any technical reason. or if  I closed a window by accident, not all tabs were always restored.

Comparing my knowledge of the workings of computers to a person's knowledge of a car, I would say that I am qualified to drive but not I am not a mechanic; so please word any replies in regular English rather than techie English.

How can I fix this problem, preferably without losing any stored data, please ?

I would really appreciate the community's help.

My PC is used by me and another person and we use vastly different zoom levels. My partner uses about 0.75 and I use 1.25 in Chrome and would like to set similar zoom levels in Firefox. As I use the PC most and I want the default zoom level to be 1.25. I would like to replace the FF level of 1.2 with 1.25 and delete some of the lower zoom levels. A setting of 0.33, 0,5, 0.75., 1.00 and 1.25 to replace the settings up to and including 1.33 would be my desire. I wish to leave the higher zoom levels unchanged.

I understand I can change this in about:config but would like some assistance in doing this.

I have consistently used Firefox as my browser and had no trouble using Ancestry.co.uk.

Over the past couple of weeks, it seems there are parts of Ancestry's functionality that no longer work with Firefox. When I first experienced the issue I tried to do the same operations using Bing, and there was no problem - so it seems the problem lies with Firefox.

Any ideas?
