When using Firefox, Facebook recently began insisting that I use a second device to obtain permission to log into my Facebook account. This is relatively new, and Edge still lets me log in without issue. How can I make Firefox return to the easier login system?

Hi there,

I've been having an issue lately where random text I've written is being inserted into other areas of my paragraphs in online text blocks. This mainly happens when I hop between paragraphs and try to edit content.

IE: If I wrote this statement and went back to correct something above, this sentence would "somehow" get added into the spot where I'm editing. It makes NO sense and is only happening within Firefox. Is there a way to fix it? I've noticed this happening on both Facebook and Indeed now too...so, I think it could be more of an issue with Firefox than certain sites.

The image is an example of the text being added in and reinserted. Thanks in advance for the help!

When attempting to play some videos with Firefox browser, mainly from X (Twitter) I receive "This video can't be played." However, I can't play them with Safari either. But it will play on Safari on another computer. I don't know what is wrong. Could it be some settings on my computer? I'm not a computer ace but know some things. Thank You for any help/ advice.

I don't have the words to describe what's happening here. Please see screenshot. Frequently when using Firefox- since the latest update, it's up-to-date on up-to-date Macbook Sonoma 14.4- this starts happening, when I move around my cursor, the images get all funky, it seems to be pulling in visual information from multiple tabs. Restarting the app clears it out, until the next time it happens. Any thoughts on this?

Firefox keeps offering to translate websites, your new feature.

I neither want it to, nor do I appreciate ads, because it is simply you advertising your new product.

I have looked at the settings and there are 0 languages for which I've set it so it will offer me to translate and 0 for which it will do. Besides the fact I do speak and read multiple languages; it is not a feature I am interested in.

So when I set it so it will not bug me about it and every time I enter a foreign language site the little pop-up shows; that's some serious unwanted ads and also clearly FAR more tracking than FF is even supposed to be doing.

I have used firefox for nearly 15 years, but I'm honestly wondering if I should find another privacy focused browser One that doesn't spam me with little pop-ups over it's latest ill-conceived stupid feature.

So you could help by actually NEVER-EVER under any fucking circumstances show this stupid translation pop-up UNLESS I put I request it to do so in the settings or at the very LEAST allow me to turn it off.

My Lenovo crashed we are getting ready to reinstall Windows and we have tried all the options to find the Hidden File in Notepad recovery. Our last step is to see if it will copy the drive and makeup a backup of the C drive and still keep the files. If not then I have lost my Lenovo bookmarks.

I am on my old HP Desktop and the bookmarks are older on that one as I have used the Lenovo for the last two years.

Both the Lenovo and the HP have the Sync option on. The last time the Lenovo was Synced was Feb 24 I think it was. I thought we could sync the Lenovo to the HP but that doesn't work. We have enough copies of the data from the HP and can reinstall those if need be.

We took FF off the computer and reinstalled like it was a new machine and was looking to see if we would sync with the Lenovo, but somehow it synced with some version and pulled up the Old HP info.

Questions: 1 - Is the anyway to find the file in the CMD Notepad version when you can't get a search or look for hidden files option. 2 - Is there any way to get the accounts to sync with the Lenovo if there is even a backup? 3 - Any other help or suggestions would be helpful!

Thank you sooo much!!

This is going to start out sounding like a Google problem, but please read the whole thing. I have a new Windows 11 Dell, and I normally run Firefox. When I wasn't able to attach a file to a gmail email I went to Google Account Help. It suggested that I delete cookies and cache, which I have now done several times. Now the problem is that I can't get to Gmail from Account Help. I have deleted everything that Firefox History will let me delete, and no matter how I try to get to it I cannot get to Gmail. It keeps me in Google Account Help.

Here's why I think I have a Firefox problem. In frustration I opened MS Edge. It let me get to Gmail, and it let me attach the file to my email. It seems to me that if I were having a Google problem, it wouldn't matter which browser I was in. As soon as it saw my email address it would put me in the same place. That's my reasoning anyway.

Please Help!!!

I've been unable to click through links in Thunderbird. It appears to be because Firefox refuses to be my default browser. When it asked whether I wanted it to be my default browser I answered yes, but then got a blue message saying I should go to settings/default apps. It has never done this before. I can't use Win 10 Settings because it doesn't do anything because it has been corrupted by a power cut. But this has not been a problem before because Firefox has always made itself the defealt browser when requested. I have tried doing it via the menue but I get the same message. So it appears, either Firefox has changed, or Windows 10, preventing from Firefox doing it itself. I haven't used any other browser. Edge was not set up. Any suggestions?

Hello,

I have tried to download the newest VDH Companion App (via the link on the github.com webpage) Seven (yes, 7) times and every time the download Fails or I get "Zero bytes". I tried to contact "Support" but there is only a Support Forum and nobody else has posted this as an issue that I was able to find when I searched. So no support is offered. The website suggests that I create an account to be able to post a new issue. However, Every time I have tried to set up a github.com account, I am Unable to do so. The page to set up an account either doesn't load OR if it loads, I can not add any information to it. I am a VDH Registered User and until this morning, the current VDH app I am using, version 8.2.1.1 was working just fine. But now when I try to use it, it says that my VDH Companion App needs to be updated. But I can not even download it to update it. I am running the current version of FF, 123.0.1 on an iMac with Sonoma OS 14.4. We used to be able to email Mig but not anymore. The github.com support page is unwieldy at best and I see that numerous requests for help or support have not been answered or even acknowledged. I am a paid Registered user with a license, but that doesn't seem to matter. I, like many others from what I read online, count on using this app almost every day and I would think that the mechanism for updates should be working correctly. The update files I tried to download came across at crazy low speeds, like 20.1 to 40.5 Kbps! I spent over an hour with Tech Support for HughesNet and much to my chagrin, No Other Websites had any issues with download speed. It was only happening on the github.com website and this one file update. Sorry if TMI but I am just trying to thorough.

I'm trying to create a Drag & Drop file feature in my web page following this doc https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/HTML_Drag_and_Drop_API/File_drag_and_drop

The dropHandler function works as expected the first time I tried to drop a file into a "drop area" div, but then does not work anymore. In all subsequent calls, the drop event is triggered but there is no file in

`` event.dataTransfer.items // empty event.dataTransfer.files // empty ```

This behavior is the same in Troubleshoot Mode.

Hello

right now, using this form for typing the question, I can see that typewriting spelling is perfectly working

but if I go to gmail web, and I try to spell check , it neither shows the option in the right click menu

please see attachments

Please kindly , before to write lot of check this and that, this is what I have already done

- cleared cookies and all the data cache. This didn't solved the issue - went to menu Help->Others Info and Problems Resolutions->Restore Firefox. This didn't solved the issue

so now I begin to believe that Gmail is disabling the spell checker

Can you tell something about this?

Ooooh s**t seen right now, yes really Gmail disabled the spell checking

it works in the subject line but it doesn't in the message body!!! See attachment

Well kindly suggest a workaround for this Google ABUSE

Thank you
