Firefox is periodically giving me a notification that there is an update available. It does this multiple times a day, generally appearing to happen if Firefox has been "not in active use" ie minimized for some period of time. I've already clicked "not now", so I shouldn't be seeing it anymore.

How do I disable it? I don't want to update unless I absolutely have to (ie back when all the addon certificates expired) due to Mozilla's penchant for making unwanted changes to the UI. I just want the notification to go away and not appear again.

As it is, this is basically a form of very annoying spam coming from the browser itself.

I never had a firefox account till now. So, I had to reset the pc where i had all my logins. I once had to export my passwords (exporting key4 and logins.json files) and it worked, so i didn't think to much about it. So i reset the pc without cheking if the passwords actually worked (yuh, my bad). The problem is that apparently mozilla doesn't recognize the files, or something, cause when i open "Logins and passwords" it's empty. I don't know what to do, please help me.

I want a related tab to open as the next tab and a new tab to open at the right end of the tabs. Under about:config, I tried to change browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent and browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent. No combination of true and false makes any difference - a new tab always opens after the current tab.

So, for the past couple of weeks, after every 3-4 days, I go to open Firefox, and all my add-ons and settings keep getting reset.

It's a weird thing. I have my add-ons, my customized settings, and everything is working fine. But after a couple of days, I open up firefox and it's like I'm starting from 0.

I mean, my history, bookmarks, passwords, all remain intact.

But everything else is gone. All my extensions open up a tab saying "now installed!" or something along those lines - plus a tab from Mozilla, today about the privacy notice.

My homepage, search and download settings are back to the defaults.

I have tried to refresh my browser, reinstalled my extensions, but still the same issue.

Help?

As of this morning, I am unable to access many of the sites I visit regularly and am now unable to conduct aspects of my business. The error is always that the connection timed out, the website isn't available and the tls handshake simply stops.

I can't even reach https://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback/firefox/67.0/ because of this handshake. That's kind of ridiculous, isn't it?

The issue doesn't affect all websites, but unfortunately it's the ones I need. I've created a new profile, refreshed Firefox, reset my modem and router. My ISP says the connection is fine on their end.

Firefox is the only browser I have access to on my desktop. Google Chrome, which I don't want to use, works fine on my Android phone.

Flash player is either screwed up or something else - or Firefox is blocking videos. Having experienced problems (videos just sit there or won't load at all) I've just uninstalled Flash Player and am attempting to reinstall a new version - but it won't let me. Seemingly there's another version being loaded - but no way can I find that or know what's happening, so I'm stuck.

The whole thing stems from my inability to watch any videos on Firefox - not even YouTube, BBCi LiveLeak clips or even porn. Yesterday everything went well but today I can't even see gifs on Imgur. What the hell is happening? Why is Firefox blocking me?

In Mozilla Firefox for Linux (Mint) there is no cursor transition when hovering over the edges of the Google Sheet cells range selection, eg in order to move it to other location. It makes this simple process very "arbitrary" and difficult, so I need to use copy paste instead.

Off course this is happening only in FFX, other browser show default behaviors - transitioning cursor to palm handle for easy cell range selection pick up and manipulation. Thus I find this being a FFX specific bug, and I wonder if anyone has the similar experience and if there is a solution?

Hi,I'm in trouble about upgrading, Please help..

After upgrading Firefox to 67.0.1, A lot of automatic access to https://push.services.mozilla.com/ came to occur.

As a result, the processing volume of proxy server is frequently exceeded. Delays and failures in web access began to occur frequently.

It is not unusual for me to lose my favorites on BOTH, the Firefox homepage and on the "SpeedDial 2" app. I keep having to reenter my favorites, only for it to happen again, not long after.

As an aside, it is very difficult to find some way to contact Mozilla. You list Facebook as a way to contact you, but that is no longer being used. There seems to be no way to, easily, get in contact with Mozilla. It is as if Mozilla wants to make it as difficult as possible for people to bring their concerns to them.

I am considering going with a nother browser. I have heard that Brave is a good one.

I lose internet response about once every 24 hours and have to re-boot my computer. I think that, at first, re-starting Firefox did the trick, but now a re-boot is always needed. This seems to coincide with the 3rd May urgent fix (ref. from my notes at the time : hotfix-reset-xpi-verification-timestamp-1548973).

How do I get back to my April status, with uninterrupted internet access? Phil.

I am trying to open a link to a .m (MATLAB) file directly in the Firefox browser (from a local site).

On windows this works fine and when the link is followed a new tab is created with the .m file converted to a HTML page.

On Ubuntu however it seems like Firefox is iterpreting the file as Objective-C source code and when I am trying to use Firefox to open the file (preferences -> applications -> Objective-C source code -> use Firefox) it keeps on repeatedly opening new emtpy tabs. I can set it so that the file is opening in e.g. gedit, but I would like to have the same behavior as on Windows i.e. a new tab with the file converted to HTML format. Is this possible? Is there a Firefox extension that I am missing? I read that you should use preview in firefox, but I don't seem to have that option (I have included a screen)

I am using Firefox Version 65.0 (64-bit)

I turned on Firefox this morning (after a Microsoft update/shut down last night). Heading to my usual pages where my logins/passwords come up automatically, I discovered the boxes were empty - they are usually filled by autofill; these are login pages to my blog, Amazon, eBay etc. I had also been logged out of my Firefox account, so I logged back in (I had remembered that password, luckily) Checking Options/security - show saved logins, I found absolutely no list of saved logins at all. (Horror!) I synced Firefox - still no list of saved logins Where have they gone and how do I get them back?

Hoping someone can help 'cos it's about five years' worth of saved logins.
