How can I create a desktop shortcut to a website without using the drag and drop method? I am the teacher of a blind student who used the NVDA screenreader. Drag and drop just really isn't accessible to her. Are there other ways to create desktop shortcuts (specifically to google drive)?

When dragging tabs in the browser, they "lag" strongly (not the contents of the tabs, but the "tab icons" themselves). Tested on multiple devices and the problem persists, what can I do about it. If anything, then the PC is not very weak and in other browsers there is no such problem.

They each have their own bookmarks and settings. I don't want this. How do I fix it?

Can I uninstall both of them and delete the respective folders and then install a fresh one? or what?

Its 2020 man!

Why are we (Mozilla community) still missing content casting feature just like Google Chrome and other browsers. Even the new Microsoft Edge Chromium have that feature. I usually stream a lot of content and this feature, for me, is indispensable.

Furthermore, I am not asking for any workaround or extensions. There should be a native casting feature on Mozilla Firefox too just like other browsers.

Before the switch to Quantum, there were addons like Extension list dumper and Infolister.

Currently, Chrome has a nice extension called Share Extensions for Google Chrome™, which, basically, is what I'm looking for in Firefox. Share Extensions for Google Chrome™ exports an html file with each addons' description and it's name is also a hyperlink to it's page in the Chrome Web Store. It has no version info, but better that nothing.

My searches for any kind of list exporter came up empty.

Firefox takes over 30 seconds to load a tab that I've already opened and seen before.

I mean tabs that have already displayed some content, I switch to a tab, then go back to the tab I was previously on, and it takes over 30 seconds to load, sometimes over 3 minutes. This is making firefox unusable.

And because it doesn't happen all the time, it's not very reproducible for me, but it happens often. Is there a way to fix this?

Hello.

As of yesterday (the 12th of October), any time I try to watch a video on YouTube it loads incorrectly, and there's a "&pbjreload=101" at the end of any and all urls. In short, I can't watch any videos. I assume it's due to my Avira Browser Safety, as I tried disabling it on that tab, and after restarting my browser, I was able to watch videos. The problem is, I don't want to have to keep ABS switched off, nor do I want to have to keep switching it on and off.

I've already posted about this on the Avira Support forums, but I thought I'd mention/ask about it here too in the hopes someone could help. How can I fix this without the need to keep messing with ABS? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I hope someone can help - this is starting to get a little annoying. I'd like my New Tab page to display my Bookmarks in the Highlights section. I only check the setting to show Bookmarks since what I'm looking for is something a bit like Speed Dial. The Highlights section can populate Visited sites just fine, but no bookmarks show up. My bookmarks are saved in the default Other Bookmarks folder. Safe Mode makes no difference.

This worked when I first set it up, but now the section is blank (again). It seems to happen after PC has been shut down, but I haven't tested that properly. Trying the steps mentioned in this post https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1282646 did nothing. Last time I fixed it by deleting my bookmarks completely and re-adding them, but that's not really a long-term solution.

A few weeks ago I migrated my company's website from Adobe BC to Bluehost-Wordpress, updated site having the same domain name with a slightly different web address [http//... instead of www.....]

When I search for and bring up the website using my Firefox [in the MS world] there is a warning message that the website is not secure. Same thing when I use Chrome. When I use MS Edge it looks for the old Adobe BC website and of course cannot find it. But Wordpress [the webpage provider] has done the same searches showing for both Chrome and Firefox that the website is secure.

A friend who is in the MS world used his Chrome message website secure, his MS Edge finds the current webpage address but says the connection is not secure. Another friend who lives in the Apple world says all his searches are OK, including website is secured messages.

Have purged caches, cookies, etc. to no avail.

Anybody know that is going on? May be more than just a Firefox issue though thought would start here. Thanks,

I'm having a weird problem with Firefox for a long time now.

I'm using the latest version, for windows, x64bits - 81.0.2

Sometimes, I press Ctrl+T to open a new TAB and I type an address or paste an address and it just won't load the page... It stays loading, loading and it does nothing.. BUT If I open another tab (Ctrl+T or in the plus sign) and paste or type and address, everything works... This can happen again on the same window or in another window... I just don't know what is happening... I haven't switch to another browser because I love Firefox to much, but I'm getting a bit tired of this problem...

Any hints on why this is happening ?

I like to delete all cookies when I close Firefox and have it set accordingly under Cookies and Site Data to "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed". Under Manage Exceptions, I have added the half a dozen websites that I am happy to Allow cookies. However, when I re-open Firefox, not only does it require me to go through the "accept cookies" process (ie it has deleted all the cookies including my exceptions), but the exceptions that I'd listed have all disappeared. So why isn't the Manage Exceptions not working correctly, please? Any solutions much appreciated. Thanks

Hello. After a reinstallation of W10, I imported in Firefox the file "bookmarks.html" that I saved before this installation. Usually it works very well, but this time, there are no more bookmarks in my menu after the import than before !

Hi. I was a constant user of Firefox until a year or so ago. The bloat came in and I followed the hordes to Chrome. Chrome now has similar problems, (21 instances for 3 sites? Really?), so I looked into Firefox once more and found it has apparently been updated. I took the plunge and reinstalled looking forward to easier browsing again. Hmmm.

I am a user of ebay and pay via Paypal. (Just saying that, I guess some of you know what is coming now.) I use Eset Internet Security which has always been very secure, easy to manage and has never given a problem with ebay or Paypal in any way with Chrome. I have it set to open a separate secure browser for Paypal transactions. Using Firefox I cannot get any Paypal transaction to complete.

It has a variety of issues which I seem to meet at random on the way. Sometimes it just refuses to start, the circling icon sits in the small secure browser screen which is empty white and spins ad infinitum. Sometimes it gets to an authentication screen with a picture of a code to type in, except the code is missing and the box is empty white. If I refresh, it shows the code but the first entry is always incorrect then the second entry, if I am offered it, is accepted and I continue to login. Once the login details have been entered and I see the message confirming the data has been sent to www.paypal.com, sometimes it stalls here again and never gets beyond that. Very occasionally I get past this and see a yellow pling with the message "Looks like this action is not supported. Please return and report this error so that we can support it in the future. (invalid client_ID or redirect_uri)". Well I am reporting it but I'm not holding my breath as this problem has been around for months if other people are to be believed.

I have cleared all cookies and caches and restarted Firefox. Nothing. I found a thread here where someone advised turning off location blocking for Paypal. No difference. Payments go through fine with Chrome so it can't be my security settings external to the browser, (Eset), and it can't be a Paypal issue. What is wrong with Firefox that such a necessary piece of functionality is either broken or is so unusual to set up that so many people, (I've searched so I have seen them), cannot make it work?

Any advice on this will be warmly welcomed.

Like I said, upgraded to Windows 10 over the weekend. Figured there would be some tweaks and hiccups, but this is getting out frustrating. We use Google Drive for work, often needing to download files from there. Upon attempting to download anything I'm redirected to a page with this error message:

"The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to doc-0o-6k-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I've reinstalled, checked for updates, snagged java, flash, tried firefox safe mode, cleared cache and cookies, and I'm running out of ideas here. Seems to be no problem using Chrome, so problem is unique to firefox which is unfortunate since FF is my browser of choice.

Cheers for the help in advance!
