I was trying to activate Crackle on my Roku box by going to crackle.com. The connection works but I just get a brief screen with three dots followed by a blank screen. However, I have no such problem in Chrome; if I go to crackle.com/activate I get a screen that allows me to enter an activation code. I've deactivated both Noscript and Adblock but it makes no difference. Although I solved my problem by activating via Chrome, I'd still like to know why the website crackle.com is inaccessible in Firefox.

I ran into an issue with a pop-up window that didn't want to close, and a simple google search provided the answer of abandon all open tabs and start from scratch... That's not particularly an idea I fancy!

I actually discovered a very simple solution, but I can't post it anywhere because all of the posts are archived!

The malicious pop-up was opening another window, to supposedly enter access credentials. This was keeping me from being able to close the window, and when I closed this alternate window, it would pop right back before I could do anything else. A light bulb forms!

I disabled my computers wireless connection, via the network and internet settings, and the pop-up was no longer able to restore the access credentials window. Close the malicious pop-up, and restore internet connection!

I would like to share this work-around with others that may have a similar issue, but can't find any open posts about it. Can a Mod help me out with this task?

Hello

The confirmation e-mail that I receive on my work account contains only characters (no images, buttons, etc.). See "Screen.PNG". This is caused by restrictions/security measures set up by my employer.

I have set up a Firefox account on a Gmail account with no trouble at all, but with my work account I cannot, as I cannot access the link in the confirmation e-mail.

When I paste the link from the e-mail to a browser, I encounter an error that the confirmation-link is damaged and thus not working.

Is there another way for me to activate my Firefox account other than going to the confirmation-link? I have spoken with the IT department of my workplace and they cannot change the restrictions.

The account in question is krk at elbek-vejrup .dk

Thank you in advance, much appreciated

Best,

Kristoffer

p I have taken great pains to opt out of all these privacy sharing websites such as mylife.com. However, if I type my name in the search bar in my Firefox browser immediately on the top an non-existent listing for me from mylife .com appears with my name, age and location prominently displayed for all to see. Please remove this. There is no page. I want my identity protected and my privacy restored.

I am very upset with Firefox when C Google was able to do this easily with information I provided on a dedicated page.

Firefox Version 63.0 (64-bit) Home build PC, 480GB SSD, 2 x 2TB HD's, 8GB Ram.

I have had problems with streaming Channel 4 TV UK for many years. I could only get it to work on Windows. Recently I have Dumped Window 10 - so slow - updates take all day. I now am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (using Linux since 2009)

Channel 4 say they Do Not support Linux ?

I have tried to install Adobe Flash Player, but does not seam to work or download. On Ch 4 web page I pressed Allow, but say that I should install Flash Player !

Please could anyone advice me what I can do, or what I have done wrong.

Regards, Richard.

I used to run Firefox without problem but lately had been using Safari. Wanted to get back to Firefox last week and downloaded the newest version. Since then I can't start Firefox; it crashes on start-up every time. I'm on a Mac, OS 10.12.6 (Sierra). I'm not especially techy but I have tried safe-start and a clean start with no success. Did submit crash reports, the last one about 10 minutes ago (Crash ID: bp-18a0ccaa-1f9e-4478-ada4-3ea8d0181109). If someone could help, that would be great. I am really fed up with Safari :(. Thanks in advance.

Out of nowhere, a Mozilla Firefox opened in fundal with some weird name like wqkt12essddfg34sdsdgdse24awsd42312.... and I couldn't maximize. After like 20 seconds it disappeared. But when I started up my pc the Mozilla tab appeared again, made everything black and I had to restart windows explorer to regain access to my computer.

I tried to scan with Malwarebytes, Bitdefender, Avast, etc and nothing. I reinstalled my windows after I formatted all my hard drive, and after I installed only google chrome and graphics card driver, the Mozilla tab popped up again. And I don't even installed Mozilla Firefox on my new windows. I don't get it. I posted a picture to see that it looks like an old version of Firefox, not a new one.

i use a wifi connection offered by my landlord that requires a log in process. it includes a Dell firewall. the certificate is considered unsafe by Mozilla. Mozilla allows me to add an exception, and the window that comes up has an option to make the exception permanent, but it wont allow me to check the box to make it permanent. it would make things easier if i could make the exception permanent. how do i make this certificate a permanent exception? thank you for your time in this matter, and have a great day!

Hey Guys and Gals,

I have a website problem with Firefox in Windows 10 Home 64bit oem.

I am trying to get to Cyberlink.com and I get error . I also get error if I try using Chrome. Attached at 2 screenshots, 1 FF and 1 Chrome.

I cant access the site using either browser in wiindows 10.

Microsoft Edge accesses it fine thou. Also I have a Linux virtual OS on my system and I can access Cyberlink.com using firefox in it.

I thought maybe it was my system but it also happened on 2 other computer running Windows 7. But to be on safeside I ran Windows 10 troubleshooter and no problems were found. I ran SFC /scannow from Elevated CMD prompt and it found no errors. I than ran a DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth and it found no problems.

Anyone else have an issue accessing Cyberlink.com (cyberlink dot com) just in case links are blocked?

And how would I fix the issue if it is only my system?

Please let me know. Thanks in advance Gren

Hello, i started using Linux (Debian stretch) and after a few days i realized that in Firefox (63.0.1 64bit) can no longer use the deleting key (not "Delete", but one that is used to erase text from right to left) to go back in history on a tab. I found i can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+right arrow, but this one is much less handy than single key which i am missing.

Second problem is that when i click back button by mouse, then it do not scroll the page to the spot where i was, but the scrollbar is on the top of the page which is not convenient.

These two things seems like a small issue, but it making quick browsing uneasy. Please how to fix these issues?

--- Yes, in about:config, i had to set "browser.backspace_action " to be "0", unsure why on Linux they do it differently.
