The search function in the browser redirects to https://www.gogote.com (instead of www.google.com), which uses the Google logo but delivers different results. Is this function hijacked by malware or did I miss something? I installed firefox 1 week ago. I found 2 add-ons, which I deactivated. How can I get rid of it?

I just installed Firefox 63.0 and discovered that the leading (inter-line space) between Bookmarks items has been increased.

Was this intentional? I find it an annoyance because I now have to scroll down more to see lists that easily fit on the screen vertically before. And the change adds nothing to readability.

I found a folder in my trash bin named "Recovery files" with files titled "(A Document Being Saved By FirefoxCP 120)".

I did not move this file in the trash. It's 09.14.18 today; looking into the folder, I noticed that it began saving files starting at 09.09.18.

Can someone explain what's happening?

Greetings, I have been exclusively using Firefox forever and happy with it until a friend said "Hey, try this" and tacked duckduckgo on top of it - and I'm sure it does a great job - but I have since then noticed some browsing oddities relative to Firefox pre-duckduckgo and I want to remove it that I may compare before and after performances.

But I can't find it anywhere and as I am allergic to, and highly suspicious of, anything I can't track down and remove from my system if I so desire, I REALLY want it gone, at least until I find out more about its characteristics.

So question #1 = is it really that useful, and #2 = how do I remove it regardless? Thanks for the feedback.

Hi,

I am in the Netherlands and by default, the Firefox that is downloaded from the main page is in Dutch. I dislike having my applications in Dutch so I tend to set them to English at the earliest opportunity but Firefox seems to be stuck somewhere halfway in between. Here's what I did/tried: - First downloaded the regular Firefox, set it up, changed the language to English in settings and went on setting up. After a number of tweaks and addon installs I restarted the browser. - The browser is now in what I would call Dunglish; the settings page and various other things are in English, but the menubar and various other standard controls are not, they are still in Dutch. - I went into about:config and changed the intl.locale.requested value to only say En-US, before it had NL tacked onto the end of that. No change. - I downloaded the language pack addon and restarted the browser. No change. - I downloaded the US version of Firefox and installed it on top of the other, Dutch, version. No change.

I'd really rather not remove my profile entirely and start from scratch as I've been working on setting it up just the way I like it for half a day now and I'd rather not redo all that. What can I do? So to summarize, I know of the language-specific browser version and installed it without results, I know of the article describing how to use Firefox in another language, I know of the language packs and I know of the intl.locale.requested variable already. None of these solutions have solved the problem. Thanks a lot for reading and for any help you can provide.

After the last couple of updates, Firefox now gets stuck when I try to watch a video withing an article on the nytimes.com web site; I just get a little arrow going around in an endless circle. In the past, videos would play o.k.

So in order to view a video, I must copy and paste the link into a Chrome browser, where the video plays immediately.

When I asked the NYTimes web support tech about it, he replied, "Certain browsers have issues supporting the NYT. We recommend using Google Chrome to view the NYT content if possible."

Why does Chrome play videos perfectly and Firefox not at all on this important site?

I have no problems with Firefox playing videos at other sites.

Here's an example page. No show with Firefox, o.k. with Chrome.

I just upgraded to Firefox 77, x64, Windows 10 2004.

Firefox 76 already broke LockWise - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287008

Now Firefox 77 breaks 99% of all websites. (See attached screenshot.) www.example.com www.google.com www.wikipedia.org etc

Somehow, support.mozilla.org works, UNTIL I try to log in.

I've tried incognito mode, safe mode, etc. When I change charset of the page, the text displays differently, but it's still a useless mishmash.

--- BUT --- when I open developer tools, click the HTML request and click the Response tab, the HTML renders correctly there.

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

I've attached a screenshot of one of my WP blogs in both IE & Mozilla. After taking a recent update to the Mozilla browser this morning, and as you can see, the notifications in the drop-down menu are showing in Internet Expxlorer but not Mozilla.

I know the protocol, cache has been cleaned, have rebooted the browser in safe mode et al. I even disabled the tracker blocking on the page even though that has never been an issue before (however, I did have to disable that feature on the text editor page when it was first introduced)

That said, I'm obviously missing something and hopefully this will be an easy fix.

Thank you.

Whenever I visit a website that has an SSL certificate issue, instead of any kind of actual error page, Firefox just shows a modal "Alert" dialog box with no text.

In the attached screenshot, I visited a page I know has an SSL certificate issue. In Chrome, I get a full-page warning. But in Firefox, just the description-less "Alert" box.

I tried disabling all of my plugins before visiting the site as well and got the same result. I don't seem to have customized any of the SSL or Certificate settings in about:config either.

Does anybody have any idea how I can get something approaching normal behaviour out of Firefox for mac?

For some time now - two or three weeks - I experience R_END_OF_FILE_ERROR on many websites. It is only under Firefox. And not on all sites. One example is coronavirus.bg. I can't open it under Firefox. I use Firefox v.75 on Windows 7. I tried:

  • checking TLS settings - screenshot attached. Seems fine.
  • clearing the cache; didn't help.
  • turning network.dns.disableIPv6 to 'true'; didn't help.
  • turning network.dns.disablePrefetch to 'true'; didn't help.
  • restarting Firefox with add-ons disabled; didn't help.
  • scanning for malware; Malwarebytes didn't find any.

I am also attaching my browser test results from ssllabs.com.

I honestly don't know what to do and what is the issue. Please advise.

I've tried "command-p", and by using the menu and choosing print. Should I get a "print preview" screen when I print something? If not, where do I go to submit this as a feature request?
