Starting this morning, whenever I click on a link on www.nytimes.com, a pop-up appears that says "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved." and requires that I either click "Stay on Page" or "Leave Page". I have never seen this before and it only seems to happen on www.nytimes.com. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, how can I make it go away? Is there something that may have changed in Firefox Preferences with the most recent update? See attached screen shot.

I get this error message on the same website every day. I click stop it, and the message disappears for 30 seconds then reappears over and over again. The message does not say this webpage; it says a webpage. Unchecking "always block all detected trackers" does not help.

I recently began monitoring my internet traffic and found that two programs were downloading hundreds of megabytes of data, often when I was not actively doing anything on the internet. Those programs were OpenVPN Daemon and Firefox. This behavior is burning my already expensive bandwidth and I have no clue as to what is being downloaded, why, or where it is going.

Is there a way to stop this behavior?

When I use Bing Images and I click on an image that I have selected I have in the past been able to click on that image to view the enlarged version of it in one tab but now it incorrectly opens two tabs instead of one. This does not happen in Chrome or Edge. Now if I use the menu that has "view image" below the image it will not open two tabs but correctly open one tab to view enlarged version. Please see screenshots with captions. This has never happened with earlier versions of Firefox.

Thank you, Don

I can access Facebook, Gmail and the other sites through the other browsers without any problems. I have already tried to clear Cookies and Cache, but it did not help.

On certain webpages the text symbols are obscured or replaced by what appears to be a boxed in error code such as the characters F1 on top with 07 on the bottom, encased in a box. I've tried the "gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled pref on the about:config" to 'True' fix, with no luck. I've also changed the "security.sandbox.content.level and set its value to 1 (one) (default value is 3 )" and to '0' with no luck.

Bottom line is I'm not clever enough to figure out what the problem really is much less how to properly ask to fix it.

Any help or suggestions so I can actually see, and use, the proper symbols on many web pages is appreciated.

Many thanks

Firefox won't open and only gives me the crash reporting window. I'm on a mac with mojave (this started about a week after that was installed). I have tried starting in safe mode, creating a new profile, and multiple fresh downloads and installs. Nothing works. This has been going on for a few weeks.

The last crash report only says "1543632621". Previous crash reports are similarly empty with only a number.

Hello,

I have a MX3-L wireless airmouse/keyboard and would like to remap the Home button on it to a combination of keys. I want to use the Home button for starting a new window of Firefox (Ctrl+N). Default page for Firefox is google.com. If I press the Home button while the window is not focused it opens a new window. If I press the Home button while the window is focused on it goes to the default page. So if I'm on any other page other than the default, I loose it, which I don't want. This used to work properly in Win7, but fails in Win10.

I also have a Microsoft Ergo 4000 wired keyboard which has a Home button. The button can be remapped/disabled by the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center. The default for the button is Start Web Browser. It behaves the same as the Home button on the airmouse. What I can do here is map the button so it starts a program. Setting it to start firefox.exe give me the result I want. Problem is this only affects the Microsoft keyboard.

Tried the following software: Key remapper Sharp keys Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator Keyboard-layout-editor.com KeyTweak MapKeyboard Key Mapper Key extender

Some did not see the Home key at all, and even the ones that saw it did not work. The only one that could remap to combination of keys is Key remapper, but does not work properly: I make the change to remap Home to Ctrl+N. This reactivates the Home button on the keyboard, even If I have it disabled. Pressing the Home button on the airmouse opens a new window, but also sends the old to it's default.

Can I change the firefox instead of going home to open a new window?

When I get prompted to update software, like Cisco Anyconnect, or Adobe Flash, I follow the prompts, and Firefox starts the download, creates a file, but no data is transferred. It just sits there with the file size at 0 bytes, and will do this indefinitely. To get around this I've used Chrome. I've also tried navigating to the download site in Firefox without the prompt, but it still does not work. For what it's worth here's troubleshooting info:

Running Firefox 63.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10 ver 1803, I click on "Restart to update Firefox" and get "Firefox is installing your updates and will start in a few moments." But when it does start, nothing has changed: I am still running 63.0.3 and it still says "Restart to update Firefox." I have been round this loop a half dozen times. What next?

My Amazon and PayPal accounts were recently hacked, apparently using Firefox Password Manager. I've since changed the passwords for the accounts in question and also enabled a password for Firefox. Attached is a redacted version of the hacking session. I have a few questions.

1) If someone's accessed my decrypted Firefox password file, should I assume every saved password has been compromised?

2)How do I get a list of all these sites if I do need to change the passwords on all or many of them?

3) Is there any way to tell if this attack was launched from inside my apartment or remotely? I think I know the DNS ip of my home system at the time.

Your help is much appreciated.

I asked this question but it got deleted because the website never sent me a confirmation email and after some time my account got deleted.

The issue is after selecting a folder, Enter no longer works to accept "Done".

cor-el gave the right answer on Nov 2, 2018, 8:41:25 AM The Done button doesn't have an access key. What works for me is Alt+N to set focus to the Name field and then press the Enter key to close the dialog.

Have tried: (1) closing and restarting Firefox; (2) restarting computer (MacBook Pro, Mid 2014, OSX 10.13.6); and (3) trashing Firefox, emptying trash, and restarting computer again. No luck. Continue to get the same, "We're sorry. Firefox had a problem and crashed," error prompt.

Per the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-crashes-troubleshoot-prevent..., I am pasting my most recent Submitted Crash Report here: Crash ID: bp-550e8b76-0c74-487f-a901-7abc70181203
