When I open a mail from my online mail box, the images are being blocked. I have read the instructions from the Mozilla forum but I can't figure out how to unblock the content. - There is no Turn Off Blocking For This Site option under the content options - There is no Disable Protection For Now option under the connection options (is it available only for secured connections?)

I have even turned off all tracking protection just to see if I would get my mail in order - didn't change anything more than just seeing more trackers and cookies under the content section.

I have opened the same mails from the same computer, in the same network in IE - there everything is fine. So it is not something from the mail provider.

This applies to all images in all mails - youtube, online shopping sites I have subscribed to, travel sites I have subscribed to (as the one from the screen shots).

I don't want to move to another browser but this is getting really frustrating - I am fighting with this for several days already :(

Since two updates ago FF started to ask for proxy authenticaton twice or more, before last updates it was asking for it only once. The proxy signon request is "The proxy moz-proxy://xxx.xxx.xxx.xx:**** is requesting a username and password..." To be more precise I have a signon request when I click on a website icon and then I have an additional request when I type the first character in the google search bar (this happens only after the recent updates). If I try to write something in the URL edit box instead of google search bar I get multiple proxy signon request, quite every typed character! It's very frustrating... The NTLM proxy is not on the same domain of the windows user. I have tried changing all the possible settings without any effect, I tried to set: - network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris - network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris - network.negotiate-gsslib - network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris to the proxy domain without effect and signon.autologin.proxy is set to true. I have also tried to reset FF and to remove all the plugins but the problem persisted. Please could you help me to find a solution to this problem? For me should be fine to have the first proxy signon request as it was until few weeks ago before the last two updates. Thank you

Almost a year all versions of Firefox begin to use all available memory (Windows 7, 6 GB) just from start with 5 tabs (Email, Messenger, and some simple websites). Closing tabs never affect memory usage. It seems that Firefox never release memory, only eat more with every next website...

I know the article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-ram And I tried everything from it. The only way to release memory - restart Firefox.

The same problem from another person already marked as closed last year: https://support.mozilla.org/ru/questions/1223605

The best answer: "The more memory is used the better because it means you don't have RAM wasted. Firefox uses RAM to make its processes faster since application data is transferred much faster in RAM." Firefox developers, do you really think so? That eat all available memory for your ONE application is a good strategy?! When I start any other program, Windows begin swapping and swapping, trying to free some space for it...

The screenshot of common memory usage is attached.

When i try to use Page Up or Page Down, or Cursor Arrow Keys on the keyboard, a webpage may go from top to bottom for example! When then attempting to page up, it goes up 1 page and then back down to bottom of page.

To compound the annoying problem, there is no Down Arrow at bottom of scroll bar. So we have to click and drag the scroll bar up and down to view a webpage. This is not normal behavior and we can't figure it out. It could be a setting we need to correct, but we don't know which one it is. (see comments below on requesting the PDF printout of FireFox settings)

Could someone please help us ... and perhaps it can help others as well. We could not find such a problem amung your "help topics".

Thank You!

Opened an AMAZON link in Google search and popup says

"Virus Alert from Microsoft. Dial 833 334-6433 for and assistance..."

That Firefox page is completely frozen. Nothing works. But another Firefox page does work.

I've tried backing up to prior restore point, updating Firefox...

Any suggestions please. I'd like to just kill the one Firefox page for starters.

Thanks all,

After updating to version 65.0 the built-in light theme seems broken. I can activate the theme, but FF only shows the default theme. Dark (and default) theme is functioning as normal.

Update: I read some people have problems with Dark Theme as well after updating to version 65. It seems Windows colour settings now override Firefox theme settings in inactive tabs, menu and title bar.

Any way to fix this?

Would be thankful for advise.

Instead of redirecting to our main site like all the other major browsers do, we get: "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" in Firefox

When you go to https://www.northshore.com, instead of redirecting to our main site (https://www.northshorecare.com) Firefox displays an incorrect warning that the site you were about to be redirected to is somehow a potential security risk. This happened to me in regular Firefox, Nightly and the Developer edition, so it's not just an anomoly. The live site is fully SSL-compliant and poses no such threat to the user. Is it because the redirecting domain is not secure? Can you create an exception so that people don't see this erroneous message? Or is there a way we can alter the redirect so that it doesn't trigger this warning?

The old adage "you never get a second chance to make a first impression" is in full effect in this situation and I'm sure you can see that we certainly don't want to give people any reason to not continue to our site, so hopefully you can offer a solution to this problem.

Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone,

Clearing all cookies and history is something that I frequently do. Unfortunately, doing so also removes all Top Sites that I may have manually pinned in new tab (Firefox Home).

Do you know of an efficient way to prevent that to happen when clearing absolutely all the rest? Just preserve the pinned tabs, nothing else.

I know that in about:config, they also have they special entry: browser.newtabpage.pinned, and I think it does kind of make sense to see these manually pinned tabs more as bookmarks than as temporary cookies, really.

Thanks for your time :)

At one point with this new firefox headache I managed to get my tabs on bottom but I had to do a refresh in order to get into my outlook email cause of a glitch.

Now I can't manage to get my tabs to go under the address bar. I did the whole chrome folder with the userchrome.css thing but I still cant get my tabs to go below my address bar.

Anyone have any idea what is causing this?

Its driving me up the wall not being able to have the browser how I want it.

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 was on a previous version of Firefox 64. I had about:config > browser.urlbar several settings like autocomplete and suggest searches toggled to false. My privacy settings > address bar suggestions are clear, and I never remember history, passwords, etc.

No drop down for the urlbar, no suggestions. Perfect, working good no issue.

Then an upgrade to Firefox 65 this morning and now I have the url bar dropdown. I double checked my settings and they are still like Firefox 65, yet now this is happening again.

I tried to see if there was another setting that was enabled and I can't find one. Can you suggest a fix?

My screen was hijacked by something lacked look like Mozilla/Firefox heading saying it was taking a survey and I couldn't get out of the screen. So I took the survey and entered my credit card info for a sum of $1.00 (one dollar) for a chance to win an iPhone. Instead I got a charge on my credit card from lstfl.com for $33.+ dollars saying it enrolled me in a sex site. That is NOT what I imagined. And it came under Mozilla/Firefox name. Can you go after this site as it is operating under your name and logo. Thank you
