...Pretty much exactly like the title says. I checked the plugin checker after updating to Firefox 30 to see if there was anything that needed updating. Of course, there was: Shockwave and "Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in".

While I was able to get Shockwave up to date just fine, the Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in is presenting some trouble. As in, when I click "Update Now", instead of redirecting to an update page, it redirects right back to the Plugin Check page.

Where can I go to update this plugin? Does it need to be updated? Is this a glitch in the checker, and therefore I don't need to do anything?

Several months ago, Firefox stopped saving updated passwords. For instance, I have changed my Amazon password. Every time I go to Amazon it displays my old password (I can tell by the length), and after I manually enter the new password it asks if I want to update the saved password. I click yes but each time I go back it is still the same old password that is stored. This happens on many sites, not just Amazon.

In C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles there is one profile (qanl58lx.default) and my extensions is in the profile folder, but in Firefox options/extensions there are none. This has been going on for some time, but suddently 2 days ago a window for every extension showed up and asked for updating, which was done, and now extensions were shown inOptions/extensoins. But today they are all gone again. I have scanned for malware and there are none.

Whats wrong?

The box to update Firefox "A new Firefox update is available...Download update" is stuck on my main Firefox browser window in the top left corner.. I cannot click on it or close it and it appears on all of my tabs. I could just close the browser but frankly I've got a lot of tabs open and my Firefox settings mean that if I closed the window and reopened them all in a bookmark folder, I'd have to log in to all my sites again. Also I don't know if the same thing wouldn't just happen again.

I don't know if this is Firefox's way of forcing you into submission to update the browser but it is quite frustrating, I shouldn't have to go through such a massive effort just to get rid of an update box that obscures my view. I also don't want to get rid of the box appearing altogether as I like to know when there is an update so I can choose to download it or not.

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

I've tried about:config and other posted solutions. They don't work with my Firefox Quantum that I just upgraded to (without any proper support or notice from Mozilla about changes involved with Quantum). I keep getting messages saying the links to set tab width don't work with Firefox Quantum, and it won't let me click them. I'm using Windows 8.1

Firefox 68. A web site I visit daily always shows a popup asking me to accept cookies ("aceptar y continuar navegando"). It's annoying.

In options, I've selected "standard" for the cookie policy. I've emptied the cache, used the "forget this site" in the history for the web pages where the message pops up, and reloaded Firefox. It still prompts me.

Here's one of the pages it happens on: https://www.antena3.com/series/el-secreto-de-puente-viejo/avances/ Click "avances" or "momentos" and a large black box should pop up on the bottom of the screen, with the "aceptar y continuar navegando" in the lower right in a red rectangle.

Essentially, I want to tell the web site that I accept having cookies and have the web site remember my answer for the future.

i have just figured out after searching, that it is not possible to change my email for my firefox sync. it is already a nightmare for me that nokia email provider just simply closes down my account which i use for EVERYTHING in my life... i have somany account to change the email in it, but firefox sync doesn't allow me to do that. i really don't want to lose any details of my mozilla settings, so will it be possible to keep it with a non-existing email? or is there a way to open a new account with a new email and merge my settings to it?

Go ahead, say it. You reccommend another browser not repair FF. Does that mean new FF is unfixable? I can handle that if that's what you want.

I think the question is self explanatory. You recommend using a competitor's browser because you can't or won't fix the new FF. And if that is correct (as you said) I can… (read more)

After upgrade to 47 the restore tabs from previous session is no longer working. It is set correctly. What gives.

It appears as though you are attempting to make people set firefox as default browser in order to make it work which is illegal.

Please tell me that is not the ploy. I don't need a ploy to use firefox. it is my browser of choice but I am not going to be forced to chose a default browser in order to make things work.. fastest way to get me to dump the browser completely...

I have not tested this theory but it looks to be the likely reason to me as it falls right under that selection. If you now are forcing that to make all functions work than i am gone... i actually don't have a default browser for a reason... firefox is the browser of choice but won't be if this is true...

hopefully someone can email answer for me...

You may see the difference in this screen capture FF27 vs IE11 Is there another way to fix this then the AdBlock filter suggested before?

Under privacy and security - forms and passwords - I have checked "Ask to save logins and passwords" - Many times - when visiting a new site - the dropdown that asks if I want to save - does not appear - and/or - the login is there - but the password is not saved. "Password Editor" in add-ons is not compatible with my version of Firefox - Without going crazy - there should be a way - under this setting - "privacy and security" - to Manually add a web-site with login/password. And if not - why not?

All I do is double click the icon as you do, and do nothing else until firefox has finished opened. It opens in fullscreen, and no I'm not pressing F11 since F11 is not a botton I press. Until now to make firefox become windew mode and not firefox. I've looked but I can't find why firefox is opening fullscreen instead of maximized window... yes I know the difference between maxizmied widowed and fullscreen.
