For just over 1 year now, copied text will not paste into online forums. left-click HIGHLIGHT text - right-click COPY - right-click PASTE This FireFox Browser "is always" checked for updates on a weekly schedule. I also clear cookies 2 - 5 times a week. This is becoming ver-veRY-VERY! irritating when I write a fair amount of text and try to post it but cannot. WHEN will this FF problem be fixed?

When I use firefox and click on an image to view image, when I go to print the image I am now unable to set margins in inches it is locked into metric measurements, this didn't happen before last last update. How do I restore to use inches?

Checked troubleshooting section and under user profile it shows margins for printer at 0.5 inches but page size at 279.00 height and 215.00 width.

I rolled back firefox to previous version and still have problem.

Let me try again:

First: I'm running Windows 10 and have the LATEST Firefox ver. 45.0.2. I HAVE read through the support forum and have not found a response that addresses the issue(s) I'm having. IF YOU RESPOND, PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE MESSAGE FIRST so you know all of the steps that I have *already* taken.

Second: Firefox is not saving login and password information on this computer (this has been ongoing for months).

Third: Firefox is not Sync-ing login and password information with my Firefox account. Also, it periodically loses the Sync connection and I have to re-enter my password. (I also have a Win XP computer running Firefox ver. 45.0.2 that has never had a problem retaining login and password information.)

Fourth: BOTH of my computers have Firefox setup IDENTICALLY--all the same settings, both are logged in to the Firefox account.

Fifth: Both of my computers ARE Sync-ing all other data (bookmarks, extensions, etc.--all of the check boxes in Settings are "on").

Sixth: I have reinstalled Firefox on both computers. I have quadruple checked that all of the settings are the same. The ONLY thing I haven't done is a complete uninstall of Firefox on the Win 10 computer (all files--exe, data, profile info, everything). I really loathe the simple, nuclear option "necessary step" so often given to solve any problem, whether or not it really needs a sledge hammer when a tack hammer would do fine. Know what I mean?

So, finally, PLEASE help!

Firefox Passwords Not Being Saved

Running Firefox 45.0.1 on Windows 10 Anti-virus: Avira Anti-Virus Free Firewall: same

As stated, Firefox is not saving my passwords (or form information or maintaining Sync connection). I HAVE already read through the FAQs and other community questions and answers. I do have a Master Security password. I do know the password. But passwords are not being saved. I cannot find any other software that would interfere with this. I cannot find any setting in my anti-virus/firewall software (Avira) that has anything to do with this Firefox function. I am NOT using any other password saving software or extension or other application. There is no issue with the password manager exceptions file.

I do NOT have a problem with password saving on my Win XP PC. I DO HAVE SYNC SETUP AND TURNED ON but this does not populate the password manager on the Win 10 PC. It does sync everything else (although not all extensions seem to be configured to share all setup data and usage information, particularly tab group extensions).

Also, on the Win 10 machine, it periodically loses the Sync connection. This is very annoying. How do I prevent this? It never happens on the Win XP computer.

Also, on the Win 10 machine, it does not seem to populate form data boxes (name, address, email address, etc.) when I visit websites. Why? Is this also a Firefox issue or is this an issue with the individual websites? It doesn't seem to happen very often on the Win XP computer.

Please help.

Thanks for your reply Cor-el.

I did not create my own website, but I do have a small amount of knowledge that allows me to make minor alterations. When I purchased the SSL certificate from HostPapa they installed it for me. I assumed that they altered the website to accommodate the https and padlock.

How do you add the https protocol ?

Although my website does not handle financial transactions, it can be accessed from another website and Google are pushing, for security sake, that all affiliated websites should be SSL certificated. Hence the reason for going down this route.

Why after being signed in, am I asked to sign in, and then told I'm using an incorrect password, when I just used it to sign in the first time??? I'm just trying to respond to, or ask a question in the forum, and now I can't sign in .... again. What's up with that?

I see on the Add-ons Manager page, this:

"Add-ons is switching to Firefox Accounts for login. Sign in now to transfer your account."

Yet when I go to sign in (again), I'm told it's incorrect. Then if I'm about to hit the "reset my password" button, it warns me that: "When you reset your password, you will lose any Sync data that is not on one of your devices. Learn how Sync works."

Why is this such a confusing mess? Why must I sign in, when I'm already signed in, etc.???

I really cannot be too descriptive at the moment ; I was hacked by an ' amateur ' cam-girl ' 17 months ago and am still at her mercy, in spite of having spent nice sums of money with so-called ' tech-groups ' to rid me of her. This new system of communications IMPOSED upon us - how ? [ that's for another moment ] - is so plentiful with vulnerabilities that anything can happen on the face of the globe.

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

   Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

You need to close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting.

   https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.

   https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

It is possible that there is a problem with the font that is used to display the text.

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the Inspector ("3-bar" menu button or Tools > Web Developer) with this element selected. You can check the font(s) used for selected text in the Font tab in the right pane of the Inspector.

   https://developer.mozilla.org/Tools/Page_Inspector

You can do a font test to see if you can identify corrupted font(s).

   http://browserspy.dk/fonts-flash.php?detail=1

You can try different default fonts and temporarily disable website fonts to test the selected default font.

   Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced
   [ ] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"
   Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
   Make sure that you do not exceed the maximum size of 1 MB
================================================

I performed the suggestions as best as I could, with no results.

Here is a 2nd Firefox problem I just encountered. This support page would NOT upload 2 small screenshots. I waited for 10 minutes for the 1st one up upload; all I saw was the rotating busy icon. One pic is 59.3 kb, the other pic is only 75 kb - your own support page is not working correctly - what gives?


The links only show up when I highlight the whole page as shown in the attached pictures.

I know all the risks and I've read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-older-version-of-firefox

Unfortunately when I go to the link w/the older versions, it doesn't say how to install. I'm not a techie, so I have no idea what to do with the files.

I only want to go back to where I can still block 1st party cookies.

I've checked the add-ons. From what I've read, since ff took away this option, none of them have anything that works.

Your browser tells me I need a plug-in to watch a video, but there isn't a link to download the appropriate plug-in.

Or...even a place where I can read what fucking plug-in I need to download. An error message with a fucking puzzle piece on it. No hint as to what I'm supposed to do next. I install every fucking video-related plug-in I can find and they're all bugged to fucking hell. The browser can't recognize its own fucking plug-ins.

Jesus fucking Christ, I might as well be using Internet Explorer. Is this a fucking joke?

Oh, and by the fucking way, I literally just finished a complete rebuild and installed Firefox (from your site) within the first fucking five minutes of installing a wireless adapter and your browser is telling me I need to install a newer version.

And that's not to mention the malware fucking bullshit you try to make people install when they get your worthless fucking browser.

I'm going to Chrome for good. I just wanted to let you money-hungry cocksuckers know I tried to give you a chance.

Fuck yourselves,

This isn't a real plea for help, because I do not believe Mozilla will even try to fix it, but others should know. The last two nights I have tried to run a job with online data. It takes about 10 hours to run, Two nights ago I started the job, came back yesterday morning and "dear old Firefox" had sent a notification that Release 45 was available and then went on to INSTALL it without my ok. It crashed the job (naturally). Last night, 1 freaking day later, I Kicked off the job again. during the night I got a notification that Forefox 45.1 is available, and gee, it crashed the job again. The data is no longer available so I am S.O.L. thanks to firefox. Get your act together! I was in the software industry for close to 30 years, and other than bug fixes, which were clearly labled as Bug Fixes, did not get Major updates more than twice a year at MOST, and I cannot remember "point release" that followed so closely to a Major release. As I said at the start, I don't expect to get this answered. I am switching to Chrome. I have been a ff user since about release 2.0, but this crap is too much. 1. There have been 2 Major releases (44.0 45.0) in the last 3(?) months, and instead of saying here it is, it is "Install now!" and after a few "ask later" responses it AUTOMATICALY installs itself, whether I want it or not! If I wanted a nanny I'd hire one. Good bye and Good riddance.

I have, however, noticed that Internet Explorer works fine, but I prefer Firefox. (picky, huh?) I am not currently running Windows 10 at this time.

Wanting to register my frustrations with the FF integrated version of Pocket. Problems with the new integrated version of Pocket: 1, The visible recognition that a site had been added to Pocket no longer works. Prior to integration, the Pocket icon turned red when a site was added. Now there is no way to tell. 2. Pocket dropdown next to icon has been removed and added to Bookmarks. It is beyond me to understand who thought this was a good design concept. It's cumbersome and annoying. I don't have bookmark tab open on my browser so finding it is unnecessarily time consuming.

On my Mac, I rolled back to the old version of Pocket some time ago, yet l have the integrated version on my PC desktop. It drives me crazy and I want to roll that back too, I'm just not sure if it's still possible?

I am just F*&%ing TIRED if FF NOT WORKING!!!!!!!!! I just updated to the latest version (for Win 7) and it TOTALLY FUCKED ME!!!!!! Not only was I NOT seeing images after the update, but when I logged on to your web page, it seemed that the ONLY solution was to REFRESH. Upon doing so, I HAD ***NO*** idea that it was gonna WIPE OUT my plugins... specifically Session Manager!!!! NO WARNING NO NOTHING!!! NOW it its GONE. EVERY SINGLE SESSION that I had saved... GONE... FOREVER!!!!!! You people are idiots!!! WHY WHY WHY would you not warn someone about pending data loss?!!!!!! EVERYTHING that I have worked hard for is now GONE GONE GONE!!!! Thank you FireFucks!! After the refresh, I went to see what might be happening with my plugins (since I rely HEAVILY on Session Manager!) and it was NOT listed nor was any of my others!!!! GONE!!! POOF!!! YEARS OF WORK... GONE!!!!

Not to mention how FF CONSTANTLY crashed... several times DAILY on my Android device. You people are absolute idiots!! Put your game controllers down and sharpen your pencils!!!! What? Is your company run by a bunch of dope smoking 20 somethings who haven't got a clue of common sense? WTF!!!!

THANKS FOR SCREWING ME OVER!!!!

Too many functions have been lost. I have a more up to date laptop but I'm not going to update the OS on my main desktop computer because too many other software programs would need to be updated - such as video editing and Adobe programs - which work fine as they are. Sadly my browser in future will have to be Safari or Chrome, which work fine with the current OS.
