I want to subscribe to the Firefox VPN but have used a VPN in the past but it blocked all my Hotmail emails. Can I use Hotmail with your VPN? I'm guessing Hotmail is a public email and for obvious reasons they block emails they cannot identify.

Please let me know if it will work or if there's a workaround.

A math equation generated by MathJax using Hugo and Rmarkdown and blogdown is not properly rendering on the Firefox Browser version 81.0 (on Mac OSX High Sierra). I have attached screen shot from the web site that shows the problem (at the bottom of the paragraph). I have also attached a screenshot from Safari where the rendering is as expected. Any insights would be much appreciated.

In last couple of the most recent versions of both Firefox and Firefox Enterprise, Access files with ACCDB extensions will not open from a link on an html page. Basically, it will show an error in firefox. It can be saved to the local desktop if we set the option to do so, but we would like to be able to open it only. The file is on a network. We've also tried opening the file in several other browsers (chrome, edge, etc.) and get the same results in all of them except IE. That remains the only browser we can open an Access file in with a link. Microsoft Word and Excel files appear to still be opening fine.

hello, i have more and more inactive links with firefox, in particular the Quant page : clicking on any link to move to pictures, news or simply next page has no effect. Not corrected by inactivating all modules. Is it a too strong privacy protection, or is there a tuning problem with my browser ? thanks !

I finally figured out why Firefox kept warning me about opening too many tabs at once: this command is the first option on the pop up menu when I click and hold a moment too long on a folder that is part of my bookmarks toolbar (some of these have dozens of bookmarks)

'Open all in tabs'

this is on my Windows 10 PC using Firefox beta.

Is this a command I can hide/delete/inactivate? I'm quite certain I've never wanted to do this and probably will never want to do it, and now on a machine where I use a mouse with right click it is disturbingly easy to click this accidentally. I want to disable the command entirely.

I did check about:config and saw nothing obviously relevant.

I use IBM Cognos 11 for work. I prefer to use Firefox but every new release of Firefox fails to work with Cognos, at least as of ESR 68. When editing a report in Cognos Firefox throws: TypeError: _4SF is null https://dss.mm4q.com/ibmcognos/bi/pat/halcchl_block.js 1

In the past setting dom.link.disabled_attribute.enabled=false in about:config would fix the problem but that stopped working around ESR 78. Is there any fix for this?

Testing Accessibility Keyboard Only Navigation on Firefox - We are building accessible sites but have problems navigating using 'keyboard only' commands on a Mac. The commands work fine on Safari but leave you stuck on links or buttons when using Firefox? Have always found Firefox and viewing websites generally to work very well on a Mac with few exceptions (often better than Safari), but Accessibilty seems to be a problem? Not sure if this is a caching issue or a Firefox issue?

After entering the Web Content (control+option+shift+down arrow), we are unable to tab past (control+option+right arrow) the 'Skip To Main Content' link, or select the link (control+option+space bar), when in Voiceover on the Mac (Mojave) using Firefox (81.0 64-bit). This works fine in Safari?

Any helpful comments would be great.

I can no longer access my administrative account with the schedule website Punchpass. I was logged in and actively working on the website a few days ago and all of a sudden I got a "Tab crash reporter" notification and I can no longer access the website in Firefox. I have no problems with the website in Safari. Firefox says it is up to date. I am working on an older MacBook Pro, which is running OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 and I do sometimes have problems because of this. Is there a way to fix the problem? The support people with Punchpass were unable to offer an advice other than making sure Firefox is up to date. Attached is a screenshot of the error message.

Thanks

I'm not sure I understand how bookmarks work in Firefox. So I have an account and was logged in on a previous computer. That computer died, so I don't have files to import/restore. So does this mean all my bookmarks are gone because Firefox sync doesn't actually sync anything to my log in?

I updated a sound file on a web server I have access to. When I reloaded a page with a player to play that file, the old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Go into Preferences, Privacy, manage data, select the domain involved, delete all the data. Reload the page again. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Reload again, this time using CMD-R, the hard reload key combo for MacOS. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Delete sound file from webserver, CMD-R. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Click play button. Old sound file plays.

Right click on sound control, select Save Audio As... Saving file to my computer appears to happen. However, the file saved is only 281 bytes. When I try playing it, audio player yells at me and says that is not a sound file.

Reload the page in another browser, it reports sound file missing.

Sound from old file still plays in FireFox.

First, I went into settings and deleted the data for the domain where this sound comes from.

Reloaded the page,

All I really want is to get firefox to play the new sound file, but its belief in the old file won't let it see the new one. Firefox has stashed the old sound file somewhere on my system and it keeps insisting that is the file I should have.

Well, there is one other thing I want. I would like acknowledgement that this is a bitchable situation. I hate it that tech world always says every problem is my fault. Maybe if the techworld would stop blaming users for problems they might start figuring out how to handle the news they filter more honestly as well.
