I found this looking for help with my question:

I see duplicates in the Devices & apps list

If you see devices listed multiple times (and you're sure that it is the same device) in the Devices & apps list, click the Disconnect button next to that device to remove it.

MY QUESTION: What if I am NOT SURE it is the same device? Thank you

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-adobe-flash says Firefox 84 still supports Flash. Yet on some learning websites that use Flash still, like alison.com but it doesn't really matter where right, it shows this where the flash app should be and all blank white around it: (see "capture" screenshot below)

And I can't click on it nor is there a pop-up bar nor a little plugin icon at the beginning of the URL / address box to click on.

How do i enable it?

I found this: (see "extensions,plugins,shockwave_flash" screenshot) Am I close? :)

Hi,

I have installed Firefox on my second machine at work, and I find it impossible to use it as it does not connect to many of my company's services, but also on many mainstream sites.

For example, when I try to load sites like theguardian.com I get a window with the warning: "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue", for others like nytimes.com the message reads "Warning:Potential Security Risk Ahead". The lists of sites where these happens is long.

The thing is that on my other machine at work these sites are working perfectly. I have just loaded Firefox on the new machine, I have not added any extensions or plugins yet.

I am about to loose the old work PC, and it would be a shame if on my new machine I had to use Chrome!

Any help is appreciated Thanks Alex

PS I am writing this from my own laptop and not from the work PC

In Firefox 24.0 -> Tools -> Options -> Applications, I cannot choose a program (hh.exe) to read .chm files. When I choose to open a *.chm file I have only the option of saving it, not to open it. Other browsers like Explorer, chrome, even old netscape 7.2 allow me to open it and the program finds I presume the hh.exe file and away you go. I cannot find a way to get Firefox (my favorite browser) to read chm files.

I am running windows 8.1 on my lap top. I seem to have to alternate by changing my connection settings to open Firefox. After a session on the pc I can log back in with no problems. Shut down and go to log in again a few minutes later and I get the error message PROXEY SERVER IS REFUSING CONNECTION.

I have spoken to my provider and they tell e I do not have to have or should not need a proxry connection?. They also told me to try the following, which I have to admit is the only way I am now connecting to the internet.

Go to Tools-Advance-Connections. (configure how Firefox connects to the internet. SETTINGS.

In the window that opens I need to go to first option (configure proxies to connect to the internet) Here you are given three more options: 1.No Proxy 2.Autodetect Proxy 3Manual Proxy

If the box is checked for (2) above, I have to uncheck and check (3) above. Then restart the browser. It works fine....that is until I log out of Firefox. Go back in and I get the same error message, Proxy server refusing connection. This happens from time to time....not always. Some days it works fine on the last setting chosen. So I go through everything again as explained above and uncheck manual andthen I re check Autodetect....and it works. Next time it's the other way around, I just feel like a tennis ball bouncing from one option to the other and I should not have to be doing this. Never happened when I used XP or Vista?.

I have Mamaware cleaning installed and use Defender (which came with Windows 8). I have upgraded to 8.1 but the problem existed when I was running 8.

When i upgraded to windows 8.1 the arrows with the bookmark folders became too large and i cant use 100% DPI as its too small even with adjustments and visually depressing - its the same on all my laptops and PC.s - it wasn't this way with windows 8 - its obviously something Microsoft have done but can you fix it - i have seen this problem before can you help - anything other than 100% DPI causes the arrows to be huge - screen resolution has no relationship to the problem - thanking you.

Just open up nbcnews.com, click any article, use the back button's drop down menu to see that there is only one page to go back to, the nbc home page. Now scroll down to the bottom of the article and now check the back button again. It's full of history for this single page. So now getting back to the nbc home page requires lots of clicks. So Annoying.

I have already tried a clean unistall and downloading the program anew. I have made sure the firewall (Defender) allows Firefox. Firefox worked for two months on my new computer with Windows 8 before I started having problems. I was hoping 8.1 would fix the problem, but no such luck.

I have tried switching off hardware acceleration. I have checked fonts colours (black fonts and white background) and all drivers are up to date.

May I suggest that Firefox should delay syncing the Master Password until the first time that it is actually required, even if syncing is turned on?

If you use Data Syncing then this is attempted every time you start Firefox. If you also use a Master Password then it tries to sync your passwords every time you start Firefox too. This means that every time you start Firefox it asks you for the Master Password. This is incredibly irritating.

I realize that you need to sync at the beginning of a new session but would it be possible to delay the syncing of passwords until the user actually needs to use a password (i.e. the default behavior for using a Master Password without syncing). After all, it doesn't matter if the passwords are not synchronized if they are not being used. When a password is actually required then Master Password could be requested and the stored passwords could be synchronized if the correct Master Password is supplied.
