Hi,

I'm using Firefox browser witn windows 10. When it come to configure the search in Options, I don't any choice. I want to use Google as search engine by default, but in Options, the list of search engines is empty, so the search bar is not working. How can I get search engines in my list, please?

I went onto about:crashes and I noticed that some of the crashes hadn't been submitted, so I clicked "submit all". All of the crashes got submitted except for two of them.

The ones that got sent all start with bp-, but the ones above don't.

How can the two crash reports be submitted?

Firefox 81.0.1 consumes RAM until my computer freezes. High RAM consumption was always a problem with Firefox, but the recent update seems to be much worse. Why can't Firefox release memory like all other high resource programs? After about 30 minutes it's consuming 2GB, and my 8GB RAM gets maxed out. I use very few plug-ins and no frills in the browser.

I have not been able to log into chase.com using Firefox for about 3 days - previously it was fine. I CAN log into chase.com using Edge and Chrome. I CAN log into all other web sites I routinely visit using Firefox. Only problem is chase.com, and only in Firefox. I have read about similar problems and solutions in this forum and tried the cures - I have cleared cookies on chase.com by clicking on the "padlock" in the address line - I have cleared the cache - and I have disabled the hardware accelerator - still unable to log in. When I enter my user name and password on chase.com and click on "sign in", a completely white screen is returned with a 2 inch solid blue bar roughly in the middle of the screen. Help?

Reading .swf files after Adobe Flash Player support ends on Mozillla Firefox (NPAPI)

Hello,

When versions 84 and 85 of Mozilla Firefox will be online (late 2020 - early 2021), Adobe Flash Player will no longer be integrated into the browser. The reasons for this removal are quite understandable but I was wondering how I will be able to continue reading Flash (.swf) content when these versions are available to the public. Some old sites that I still use for educational purposes offer to read .swf content and it is not always possible to download these animations to read them on my computer.

So do you think it is possible to continue reading these .swf files on Mozilla Firefox in another way?

Sincerly, Jeremy

I use Xfinity email that,m like all email applications, has compose, reply and forward controls. I have loaded Grammarly for Firefox (on Widows 10) as a spell and grammar checker. When I open any Xfinity mail window Grammarly does not attach. If I turn Grammarly off and on using the task bar then it does load. Using the Chrome browser, every window has Grammarly attached. So, what is stopping Firefox from attaching Grammarly as an extension to any editing window? And how do I fix it? Any help is appreciated as it is a pain to have manual control on each window in a flood of emails. Bob N
