I have started getting alerts from Norton 360 regarding "malicious browser extension activity 4" from a website called https://tribedone.org. I have no idea what the website is (I can't reach it) but the alert is showing very often and Norton requires a shutdown each time it detects and repairs the issue. Any suggestions please? Screenshot attached.

I've been having this problem recently (firefox build 82.0.3 and a few older versions) where characters randomly disappear from the text being displayed. In addition to webpage body text, the address bar and tab titles also disappear sometimes.

As I'm typing this text characters are randomly being replaced with blank spaces. Firefox is the only application on my computer that seems to have this problem. I have restarted it, reset the user profile, and disable all extensions/add-ons in an attempt to debug but it hasn't seemed to help.

Attached are two screen captures, one where the text has disappeared on me and one after I highlighted the text to bring it back. Note: the address bar and tab titles are blank in both since I didn't highlight/click on them.

I also had a problem on my Mac with Weather Channel and Weather Underground's Wundermap not loading on Firefox.

I launched Firefox in Safe Mode and the maps loaded with no problem. It turns out that the culprit preventing loading in my Firefox browser was the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension. Since disabling it, the maps are back for the first time in at least a year. I had searched for the answer to my issues for that entire period with no luck. Now I don't have to open another browser for a decent weather map.

I hope this will help some of my fellow Firefoxers.

Ever since I downloaded Firefox, I have been having an issue where when i click on a link from a search engine, it automatically opens the link in a new tab. I've looked around in the settings menu, but I couldn't find any way to alter it. The closest option would be to open link in new window, but I just want to open the link in the tab that I am currently in. I have tried going into about:config although I couldn't find any setting that successfully fixed the issue. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!

Thanks! - T

I have been requested to uninstall Adobe Flash player. I am still using Flash Player for some web sites and am ask to activate before video will work. At the end of the year I am told that Flash Player will no longer work. I asked one of the sites what I should do and they recommended using Chrome and html5 to watch video. I have also checked several sites to see what can be done with Firefox to continue watching video without changing browsers. I wish Firefox would put out a step by step process to fix this problem and allow me to use html5 in a Firefox browser. I am reluctant to uninstall Flash Player until I understand how to make html5 or whatever is required to continue to watch live stream and youtube. It looks like I have until January before Flash Player is inoperative. BTW, I have Firefox version 82, running Win10 with Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0. Jay

Okay so this is sadly an issue I think was intentionally caused by the website itself. The reason being they pulled crap where you had to sign up for premium to watch their videos about 6 months ago. Then after that and before this issue you were able to watch their videos as long as you turned off your ad block which I complied with.

Anyways I feel that's neither here nor there. The point is I can get each video to work with a work around, by right clicking the video after hitting play I click view video and I get redirected to I assume the source video. It works there no problem but every time I just try to click play itself it seems to be broken giving me the error code above. I was wondering if there was an actual conflict with firefox and the website or if it was just a cheap way to try and get people to subscribe to their payment plan implemented by the website itself.

firefox tab name edit: can a user name tab at will ?

right now it has LOGO and "Home" but i want it to read something like OSC-US Office of Special Counsel-Independent Agency-Home because i just do.

i have three other bookmarks for OSC: i can edit the bookmark name from "properties" but have never known whether i can also edit the name shown on a tab.

LOGO Home isn't too helpful to me. but even just knowing that i CAN'T edit tab names will be helpful to know, so i can stop thinking about it and get some sleep after another bag of chocolate-chip cookies. being an american right now is plenty stressful.

who named them "cookies" anyhow?-is it bc they kind of leave crumbs? did i win?

thank you for helping. i do appreciate it.

Long-time FireFox user, since v1.5. Stayed on ESR releases for a while, but a couple of years ago switched to following the most recent versions. Currently on v82.0.3.

In May 2020, FireFox stopped recording visited sites. At the time (I keep a log of all SW updates) I was on v76.0.1. Last recorded browsing history is that of 15th May - see screenshot. My log shows that nothing relevant was installed/changed on that day, nor in preceding days.

So I have two questions. 1) any idea how this happened. 2) (More importantly) How should I go about re-enabling browsing history, whilst keeping all other aspects of my profile?

Thanks MV

Friends, I use FF extensively and prefer not to change but it's been very annoying as of late.

Running v83. Even downgraded to v82 and it worked for some minutes but now it's back to same behavior. [struggle to download to 82 is here: https://rezamusic.yolasite.com/technical-tips.php]

If you google "squeeze lemon" for example -- on my Chrome it shows images and a list of drop down subjects "people also ask".

On Firefox, the pictures don't show -- and drop downs are frozen (don't work). Also on other sites that have a Captcha, Firefox just doesn't work. Seems same problem with 82. Help!

Images are from Chrome -- and last one from Firefox
