Where to I find the time that I open a website with Firefox? For example, I go to Verizon Support, and the Verizon Chat Agent is trying to find a solution. I have waited over an hour, and conveniently for Verizon, they cannot even let me download the chat in text or email. I'd like to know how much time I spend with Verizon (website) trying to get a solution to my problem.

Firefox Add-On Identification When Hovering

I have Firefox 79 on Windows 8.1 but even before the latest FF update I have been having trouble with the mouse pointer identifying the Firefox Add-Ons and Extensions when pointing to them or placing it over them. It used to work perfectly but now it doesn't. It used to show each of their names. Not now and it makes things much harder. All it does is darken the Add-On into a square but that's all. On other web browsers it does show their name when hovering over an Add-On with the mouse pointer. Does anyone know what has caused this and how I can bring back that function so that I can see what each Add-On's name is when I hover over it? Thank you!

Using google to search online I have started to get this page almost every time I type in a search word. (About this page

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?

IP address: 92.40.187.37 Time: 2020-08-01T13:05:50Z URL: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=dvla+tax)

then I have to go thru a series of pictures choosing squares with traphic lights or buses to prove I am not a robot.

the only thing that has changed in my house is that I am now connecting using my iphone as a hotspot. this does not happen if I use Google Chrome as my browser.

Thanks

Steve

In Firefox 79.0 running under Windows 8.1 I see the URL of a link when I mouse over it. I have seen several complaints about this as well as workarounds to get rid of it. However, I find it very useful as I like to know what I am clicking on before I do so. Unfortunately, this URL preview does not appear in Firefox 79.0 running under Ubuntu Studio 18.04. I have not knowingly overridden this feature, nor can I find a userChrome.css file on the system. How can I get it back in Firefox running under Ubuntu?

Problems with payments when online shopping

I have had a few problems ordering from sites (Adidas, Nike and another 1 or 2 I've forgotten) where I enter card details, get taken to the card verification page which then flips back to the basket page or the site's front page. I never get the order confirmation page or a confirmation email and the shops confirm no order has been made. I am really worried about this because I am putting in card info etc and it looks like it's going through but it doesn't. The pages are HTTPS. When I try on a different browser it works perfectly. It's quite frustrating because other sites are fine and I don't want to have to disable everything or use a different browser when I want to quickly buy something. The add ons I have installed are: Cookie Autodelete Facebook Container I Don't Care About Cookies UBlock Origin

I have standard tracking protection set in the options.

I understand the usual answer is to try disabling add ons one by one but to be honest I don't want to keep entering my card details to have to test it. Is there a better way to check what is causing the problem? Is this an issue with the sites or something to do with cookies/add ons?

Hi there, I really struggle with Reddit when using Firefox Mozilla. Like, if I didn't enjoy reddit so much I'd not bother going on the site altogether because the user experience is so bad when I use Mozilla with it. What am I doing wrong? My speed is fine and every other site works fine with Mozilla Firefox....except Reddit - it's horrible.

Thanks for your help! Best, Christian

My system installed Firefox Browser Version 78.0.2 overnight. This morning my Firefox display is different. I am missing the header bar that contained a choice between opening a new window or a new tab, bookmarks, Firefox support ( question mark inside a circle), etc. Further all my bookmarks, logins & passwords, open tabs, history, add-on, and preferences ARE MISSING. Prior to this update I did not have a Firefox account so the SYNC procedure recommended in the open Firefox window DID NOT RECOVER ANYTHING. How do I get back my missing information and return my Firefox screen to its previous configuration?

Hello

I downloaded the newest update and now pages are loading with only text or barely anything at all. Some sites work and others don't. I know this problem happened in previous versions and there was a fix for it. Do you know how to fix this problem? Thanks.

I have added a picture of how the pages are loading improperly with just text.

I used to have an extension. But after removing it I still see its setting in about:config. I don't want to clutter my Firefox's profile. Look at the screenshot.

1. Is it safe to remove all these setting manually? 2. How can I confirm that all the unnecessary data is removed? (including sqlite databases, etc...) 3. Isn't it a responsibility of an extension's developer to remove all the settings when a user removes it? 4. If I install hundreds of extensions and then I remove them, will they remain in my profile after deleting?
