Every time I shut down my computer I have to reset all my preferences and dowload adblock plus. The installer is still on my desktop and I can't remove it. I've put it in the apps file. This never happened before and I've been using firefox for at least 10 years. This just started happening with the new version of firefox. Please help as it's driving me crazy!

One feature at www.weather.com (Weather Channel) is their "weather in motion" feature which loads interactive weather radars. For some reason, this is not working on my Firefox browser. It works fine in Chrome and Edge. The weather.com website loads just fine but the radar data (overlay on a map) will not load. IT WORKS FINE IN SAFE MODE. So i tried to disable all of my plug-in's, extensions and hardware acceleration in Firefox in regular mode. Still doesn't work. I created a new profile. Still doesn't work. I disabled the tracker feature in Firefox on that web page. Still doesn't work. I uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Flash. Still doesn't work. Any ideas???

Hi Im writing this post from my kids laptop but the problem is with my computer. I was in the middle of something when computer froze and it is now dead. I was able to check if I can access files from live cd and yeah I can see my files but I need to reinstall windows7. When I do it I will loose my files. I need to recover few more things than just files. The question to you is... how can I recover all my tabs, my open session, all logins, passwords etc in Firefox?. Im hoping it is stored somehow deep in windows and I can just copy/paste these files to new reinstalled windows7

What could be causing it in FF (latest stable, Win 10)?

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

So the problem is that Firefox doesn't play any HTML5 content. Weirdly except for Youtube. Youtube works just fine. But every other Website shows errors. Even songsterr.com. I'm using latest Firefox 76.0.1 on a recent Ubuntu 20. 04 LTS installation. Usual troubleshooting like updates doesnt work because "sudo apt-get upgrade" doesn't find any updates. I tried the same websites in the latest version of Chromium and they work perfectly fine. I couldn't find a mistake in the firefox settings or something so I'm confused. Disabling Plugins didn't change anything and turning of tracking protection didn't either. What is the Problem here and how can I solve it?

Hello everyone,

Please help I use two browsers on my two devices (Chrome and Safari) but today I try to use Firefox as well for my personal design needs and working with this client website https://instamama.net/ and every time I refresh it I see a crash page like this http://prntscr.com/vaykr0

It seems that the problem only with Firefox because everything is ok in other browsers.

I guess maybe it is related to the web developer extension that I set-upped as well but it seems that I don`t do anything with it.

Please help.

Thanks

When signing in to Spotify, Firefox asked me if I wanted to log in using info from my Chrome browser. I use them separately as Firefox is personal and Chrome is for school. After doing this I accepted a few popups that I didn't read (because I'm stupid) and now all my Firefox bookmarks are gone and have been replaced with bookmarks that I have on Chrome. This is a massive inconvenience as I need the bookmarks I have lost. I'm also concerned about what else has changed. I went into settings to try and figure out if I could find anything there but I didn't except for turning off sync, but I'm pretty sure that's only for Firefox internally. If there is any way to end whatever the linkup is between Chrome and Firefox and recover my old bookmarks (and whatever else may have changed)?

Hi community,

I have a problem I couldn't find any answers for. My settings are set to "always ask where to save files". (Screenshot 1)

If I save a file I get the Save As dialog (Screenshot 2). I select a folder and click on Save. The file always ends up in my download folder (Screenshot 3). In some cases even if I change the file name it gets ignored as you can see in the third screenshot with the second file from the top.

The setting in options is totally ignore, files are always saved into the download folder under my profile.

Firefox Version 82.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank s

Peter

Hello

I'd like to ask you to help me disable a keyboard shortcut. I have CoolerMaster masterkeys keyboard and it has Play/Pause key that can be used by clicking Fn + Insert. Before the last update the function worked as it should - when I was listening to music using either Spotify or Foobar and used the play/pause key, it only had effect on those applications (even though I had Firefox open).

Now, since last update, the shortcut also has effect on Firefox - for example I'm listening to music with Foobar and have a Youtube tab in Firefox with a video stopped and when I use the shortcut - play/pause is done on both of the applications - Foobar and Firefox. It is really annoying and unwanted behavior.

I'm not sure if it has something to do with Firefox. But maybe there is some kind of configuration that can be applied to mitigate this behavior?

I'm using Windows 10, just so you know.

Thank you,
