I've been trying to install an add-on that is in the .zip format. I set xpinstall.signatures.required to false and restarted the browser, yet Firefox keeps telling me the add-on cannot be installed because it's not verified. Is there a way to change this?

I went to this site, no worries, nothing there but asks you to click...which you should not do. It says to copy the fix and paste it into the windows shell... sounds obvious, it's a scam. Except, this is a major funding company.

So the question is, is this legit from firefox? Or is that what? Go to myforwardsavings.com and you'll see what i mean. Or, see image i have included.

Hopefully someone up the chain in firefox can let me know. As i intend to report them if this is nefarious. Thank you.

A few months ago my bank statement from wells fargo stopped showing the information. All I have are the heading and lines... no information. I was told by Wells Fargo it is a security glitch in the Firefox preferences. I was not able to find what they were referring to so I am contacting you for help. Instructions on where to find this would be greatly appreciately. It was something about unclicking encrypted security and that bothers me somewhat.

Hello! Hope you reader are doing well. Sometimes, I'll even dare say most of the time, when I browse YouTube on Firefox and enter a video - it loads fine (currently 😢) but the thing that says what the browser is doing right now - I don't really know how it's called, sorry - keeps showing, and the only way for me to remove it when it's stuck is to refresh the page. It is a small yet annoying problem, and been persistent through Firefox's updates. Thanks for reading and helping to make Firefox the best!

   You might need to install other software to open this address.

www.wsj.com isn't the only website where this happens. It seems random on sites. www.youtube.com, www.wellsfargo.com. It all started after the last windows update this week. my other browsers weren't affected. Firefox is my preferred browser. Help me fix this.

For the last few months Firefox has released a stable version and a matching ESR version for OS's that are no longer supported. Firefox stable version had a major monthly release and a minor update as needed. For the next release scheduled in July I see a stable version of 128.0 with two matching ESR versions. I'm trying to understand the difference between the two ESR versions. The two versions advertised as ESRs are 128.0 + 115.13.

this site sucks by the way keeps eating what i type

Firefox version 127.0 Ubuntu 22.04.4

bookmarks toolbar under address bar broken setting set correctly for it to be there and there is a blank space for it to be there but none of my bookmarks that are in that folder show up changing the settings make the blank bar disappear and come back see screenshot.

Firefox home page is missing even though it is set to display just get blank screen on both new tabs and at start up of browser even though it is set to show Firefox start screen.

now every time i start Firefox it demands my master password for my passwords? just hitting cancel makes it go away though.

right click copy only works like 1/4 the time allot of the time the even though the text is highlighted copy is greyed out but using control+c usually works. that one has been happening a wile though.

Even though I have browser.privateWindowSeparation.enabled set on "false", private windows appear separate regardless and it is bothering me. I restarted my browser, logged out and then back in, toggled the setting on and off again, but the damn thing stays in this uncomfortable spot that would be awkward to explain as opposed to simply having it blend in with the other windows innocuously. How do I fix this?

Something happened with your new update, and now my computer is not working. i cannot get my emails to come even though i choose the email button. The wheel just keeps turning and turning, and will not ever get to the emails. The same thing happens when i try other favorites buttons on the top of the page. i do not know the correct words to describe what i am trying to say because i am not tech savvy at all. i am a senior citizen who needs my computer to work again. What has happened? i do not understand any of the directions given to me when you have answered me today. i do not understand the details! i am very frustrated right now, and have spent a lot of my day trying to get my computer working the way it did yesterday. What has happened?

I changed enhanced tracking but nothing stops this. Are there any suggestions to repair this or could it be a bug? I work on Windows 10. Please help.

I was looking for an item that would be a couple of years back in my history, only to discover that my history now only goes back a year and 3 months… Exactly, as of today, I don't know if that's meaningful. Does anyone have any idea what might've happened, and how I can restore the rest of my history? Thank you!

I'm on a Mac using Mojave, with Firefox version 115.8.

I often run into issues with PDFs in Firefox Linux. They either appear totally blank (typically after suspend/restore), or they appear with the desktop background showing through (as in the attached screenshot).

Hard refreshing the page doesn't change anything, opening a new tab and opening the PDF again doesn't change anything, opening a new window and loading the PDF doesn't change anything.

The screenshot is with this PDF: https://www.sgsw.ch/home/strom/_jcr_content/Par/sgsw_accordion_list_1838160259/AccordionListPar/sgsw_accordion_12353/AccordionPar/sgsw_downloadlist/DownloadListPar/sgsw_download_1049323524.ocFile/2023-08-31%20Mitteilung%20Elcom%20Erh%C3%B6hung%20Elektrizit%C3%A4tspreise%20f%C3%BCr%20das%20Jahr%202024.pdf

It renders correctly in Chromium.
