I was tricked into downloading a fake flashplayer update that included the adware "pro search tip." I've been able to uninstall it from my other browsers and firefox and it doesn't appear anywhere on my machine. I also used sophos to scan my machine, which deleted it. But it still redirects my default search engine to itself in firefox.

I have https everywhere activated, and ad blocker as well.

I moved my old Firefox from XP PC to Windows 10 PC, got the bookmarks (etc) and then followed the article in the support forum to upgrade from 32 bit ESR to 64 bit version, 66.0.1. Firefox works perfectly, from desktop icon, but there is no mention or icon in the start menu. When I right click the desktop icon and click on "Pin to Start menu", a blank box appears on the large start menu with W-308046B0AF4A39CB inside the box. Clicking on the box does not work. Using firefox from the desktop icon works perfectly

Dose anyone know why the buttons for the Close, Minimize and Restore Down commands have disappeared from the top right corner of my Firefox window? Although, hovering over the area will still show the names of them. I am using it on a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. Thanks in advance for any help.

As the Firefox window is loading in, the boxes and their names are visible for a second, and then they disappear. This issue showed up after I installed an update for Firefox. There was no problem before that, and I have this problem only in the Firefox window. All other windows display the boxes and their names properly.

I'm on Linux, and updated to Firefox 66 yesterday. I was looking forward to the new feature that disallows websites auto-playing videos. But I found that it's not the case. For example, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/how-an-extra-man-in-cockpit-saved-a-737-max-that-later-crashed still starts playing the video automatically. This is just one of the many I've tried so far.

Am I missing any settings? There was none I could find having done a quick search on the preference page.

Hello. I'm running Firefox Quantum 66.0 64-bit on Mac OS 10.13.6

Articles on this help site seem to indicate that "print preview" should be the first screen when you try to print a webpage, but I can't get it to work. 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?

Thank you, Chris

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PC.

Start Firefox and open up 4 tabs with different websites for each tab.

With the 4th tab displaying, close Firefox

Wait until all instances of Firefox in Task Manager have ended

Restart Firefox

The restore previous session loads the 4 tabs but does not display tab 4 being the last tab showing when closed. It displays a blank page and is totally unresponsive. Starting a new tab (5) is also unresponsive. Yet the other 3 tabs work fine.

Steps taken – uninstalled Firefox and deleted existing profile then reinstalled Firefox with a new profile but no change. No add-ons, bookmarks, history or settings changed.

Please help.

I had a system crash, probably with Firefox opened.

After restarting PC and starting Firefox, most of the addons I have had lost all of their settings and were reset to default - Tampermonkey lost all the scripts I had installed, uBlock lost all settings and rules, etc. Weirdly some extensions kept portions of their settings, like TreeTabs saved tree structure despite also getting reset to default.

Additionally Firefox also got its own settings reset to default, while the tabs from my session and bookmarks were saved.

Is there any way to recover addon and Firefox settings, is there any backup of them?

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.

Hey, I know this question has been tackled in the past, but I tried following previous guides and none of the code listed in those guides worked with the latest version of firefox (66). I'm a mac user (you guessed it lol) and I wanted to put the "close tab" x button on the left of the tab, and not the right, so that its consistent with the rest of Mac OS.

Does anyone know how to do that, or is there an extension which does this?

Thanks!

I had no problem playing Netflix videos before FF 66. I'm now on FF 66.0.1. I disabled all add-ons, restarted FF to no avail. This issue MIGHT be DRM related since preview vids play correctly in Netflix. They aren't DRM controlled. The full videos, which are DRM controlled, do not play. 'Play DRM-Controlled Content' is checked in my FF settings. I can play full videos as expected in Chrome. I prefer not to for obvious reasons. The NF error code is F7701-1003. The msg is 'There appears to be a problem with Firefox which is preventing Netflix from starting playback'. I've gone through the steps that NF suggest for this issue. Doing that doesn't resolve the issue.

Since the update to version 66, my themes won't stay enabled, no matter which one I choose. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the themes, (restarting firefox in between), redownloading and installing firefox itself...all to no avail. It reverts to the default theme when it finishes loading, no matter what I do. I can re-enable it manually...and, here's the odd part, it shows while firefox is loading! Anytime firefox is started, this happens, and it doesn't seem to matter what them I select. When I close firefox, it disables itself.
