Two computers updated to 74.0 (64 bit) today. Prior to the update no problems. After the update several sites are ignored on both machines. No errors, warnings, etc. It is as if you never entered the url. Tried about 50 sites, found 4 that don't work (ones I use regularly). Found a thread about 70.1 that sounded similar which suggested setting dom.storage.next_gen to false. Checked and it was already false. Tried safe mode - no difference.

When im using firefox 74 it's not showing the image type (like jpg or png) while using SAVE IMAGE AS command for pictures.

But it does show image the types options when i'm choosing what image types while opening them with such as HTML XML Image or Text Files.

I just installed this browser less than a week ago and didn't tamper with anything. How do i fix this.

Every time i try to play music on Amazon Music or a video on Crunchyroll, some nameless plugin crashes and i can't stream the media files. If i try to send a report, nothing happens. It's not even listed in about:crashes. The funny thing is, that even if crunchyrolls videos are embedded into another website, the plugin crashes there too. But since it doesn't show a plugin name, i'm not sure what crashes there exactly... I tried to start firefox in safe mode and even reinstalled it, nothing changes, so it can't be my add-ons (i disabled / deinstalled them).

I hope, someone can help me.

I'm german by the way, so my screenshot is in german, too.

Latest reason why the "don't let Flash run automatically" decision was a FAIL

Once again, we have a new release (74.0). Once again, the developers who believe themselves to be gods do not think users should be allowed to set Firefox to allow Flash on specific sites without asking EVERY SESSION, somehow believing that inconveniencing the users is somehow going to force website admins to move away from Flash before the announced deprecation at the END of the year.

Now one of my daily-visited sites (the one for Daily Jumble) will not wait for me to enable Flash, and when I do enable it I then have to refresh the page to make it work. It is obvious that if what I have been asking for all along -- being able to tell Firefox to enable Flash always FOR THIS SITE ONLY -- would alleviate the problem, but since the gods cannot see through the eyes of the users, I am now further inconvenienced by their decision.

I maintain that they moved too quickly and too drastically to implement this change, and I have no reason to believe posting this will make any difference, but I again want them to know that instead of Firefox being the most user-friendly browser in the world (as it USED to be) it now has enough user-UNfriendliness to be as despised as Internet Explorer was.

I do not believe it to be an unreasonable request to allow this, because they could simply put that functionality in, then take it out along with all Flash support in the first release of 2021. But they think they know better. Sorry, guys, but you DO NOT.

The "badges" phenomenon is like a virus which seems to be spreading across web forums, infecting every forum I'm a member of.

I absolutely hate badges. They serve no point whatsoever other than appealing to arrogance and displays of pride, and they are extremely childish. I am NOT a child, I am an adult. What is with this phenomenon of 'baby adults' who want to bring 'play toys' into a serious discussion forum?

Is there any way to turn off/hide badges?

As the title indicates, copy/pasting does not work.

I'm on Windows 10, have installed Firefox about two days ago (I've recently switched to it) so the version of FF is up to date. I've looked up a few fixes before posting and they didn't work:

- Tried booting FF on safe mode and it didn't fix the issue - it clearly isn't caused by an add-on (and I've never had this issue in my previous browser with nearly the same add-ons installed). - other people seem to have had the exact same issue multiple times and it's lasted for years, so it's clearly a problem on FF's end.

Here is the issue described more specifically: Copying things from a tab from FF and into the online version of Word does not work - when I try to, the intended selection: - disappears a few seconds after I've pasted - or it does not appear at all - or when it does, it erases the entire sentence it was pasted next to it, which you can imagine is absolutely bothersome.

I've also tried to copy/paste statistics from a site called archiveofourown.org onto another FF tab. - What ended up being copied is only the last character of the entire content I was trying to paste, which I think suggests there's some issue with what's contained in the clipboard.

I'm mentioning these two websites because I'm guessing that something about them is probably conflicting with the copy/paste feature, however I'm hoping no one will have the gall to tell me it's those websites' faults and that I should just stop using them.

When pasting (while having hopefully copied the former selected content- and no, it wasn't the case), it always pastes the content which was last copied into the clipboard prior to that very attempt, which shows that the clipboard's content was not refreshed with the last selected copied one.

I'm surprised to see that FF has had such a glaring issue for years and for many other users, and updates have never given a fix for it. I'd like this issue to be fixed properly, because I'd hate to have to switch back to my previous browser. FF sports so many nice features that other browsers don't have, and it'd be a shame to ruin the experience with a bug so basic as the copy/paste feature being broken.

Description of the problem is as follows: 1) I start a presentation on Google Meet 2) I choose to present one of my open windows (*not* entire screen) 3) window is being presented, just fine, 4) If I *minimize* the window being presented, the tab crashes. 5) the problem does not occur if I present the entire screen, rather it has to do with the window being presented becoming minimized.

Win10/drivers/Firefox all up to date - problem persists even in Firefox's Safe Mode.

I have applied the suggested fix for stopping the master password from popping up every time I go to a new site but it keeps happening. I open firefox with google search. I start to enter a search but the master password box pops up and I find I am typing my search query in the M P box. If I cancel it it just pops up again. This is before I even get to any site. When there it will come up again when following a link in that site and so on. This is very annoying and I am considering dumping firefox because of it. Please don't tell me to do the M password replacement procedure IT DOES NOT WORK. I have also tried editing the registry but that failed also. Robert.

I have the Norton Password Manager (PWM) extension installed. When I want to log in to any protected site for which I have already stored the login info, I have to log in to my Norton account before I can log in to the PWM itself.* The box for that has a checkbox "Remember me on this device," which I leave checked, but if I close Firefox and open it again, the box pops up exactly as before, whereas on Chrome, the login info is entered already. I have tried restoring Firefox to its default configuration and entering the Norton login info on both the logins page and on the cookie exceptions page, but nothing works. What's up?

  • This seems to be a relatively new requirement by Norton, which I already explored in another thread.

Hello there, maybe you can help.

I changed from Windows 10 to Linux, the Fedora distribution. I used Firefox before and want to keep on using it. I can still see my bookmarks saved in the "desktop-bookmarks"-folder on my android-phone even now. I log into FF on Desktop, try to synchronize, and about everything synchronizes besides those bookmarks. I enabled the option to synchronize bookmarks on my phone and on desktop. I pressed the "synchronize"-button on ff-desktop and ff-android mutliple times. I restarted ff-desktop without any of my add-ons, with no apparent change regarding the issue. I restarted my phone and sychronized again. I created a test-folder called "Test", transferred some folders in folders, but only the shell of the folders themselves transfers, and not any the concrete bookmarks.

Pictures for example: There should be 3 bookmark-links in "Food". There should be about 10 different bookmark-links in "Test", but apparently only the extra folder-shell "Food" is transferred. Bookmarks can be added from the desktop and they will appear in the android-version.

I appreciate all help. Thank you.

So Firefox has been behaving quite unusually bad for me as of lately. It has been momentarily freezing/lagging whenever I view 1080 HD Youtube videos, or whenever I view a graphics intensive site, or sometimes even random close out a tab. And when whenever I view Images in a tab, after the crash happens, some times the grey background behind said image is ALL black and when I zoom in and zoom out, there is still a zoom in image glitch behind the real image when it's zoomed out.

And now whenever I view a site, namely one that is on a PJJ.cc server... A chatroom which I own seems to be glitching on Firefox and not on any other browser as far as I know. On the side panel, is supposed to have a background JPG which is a brick wallpaper, but it's all black... However, when I either shrink the browser, or switch over to another tab and back to that one, it appears loaded in.

I tried refreshing the browser, that didn't work. I tried uninstalling and doing a clean install... that didn't work either.

Can someone tell me WHAT is exactly going on and if this can be fixed, or if it will be fixed during the next update?
