I refreshed Firefox, which sent my ad-blocker and 4 Norton files to the Old Firefox Data folder. Is Norton gone? How do I get these & ad-blocker back?

I refreshed Mozilla, which was suggested to make it work more quickly. But I didn't understand that it would remove my ad-remover. I found that in the Old Firefox Data folder, in the Browser-Extension-Data file, and I also found 4 files of Norton security (idsafe, nortonhomepage,nortonsafesearch, and nortonsafeweb). Does this mean my security from Norton has been dumped and is no longer functioning? If so, how do I get it back into my browser? And the same with the ad-remover. I think before I refreshed there was some mention that things could be brought back to the browser if desired. Sorry if I haven't used the right terms here, I'm not always sure what they are . . .

How do I fix that the dropdowns for Firefox are appearing behind and to the side of the browser window instead of on top of the window where they are useful?

Whenever I right click on something full screen I can't see the drop down menu, However when I shrink the browser window I can see the drop down appearing at the bottom of the window but behind it. Also the bookmark taskbar button to reveal the rest of my saved bookmarks pops that drop down to the right of the window only when it is NOT full screened. If it is full screened it cannot be seen. This problem started today following a refresh of Firefox due to some slow down that was happening.

The context menu is unreadable because of the yellow text on a white background. It looks a bit like someone enabled high contrast mode, but that is turned off. I only have this problem on my laptop and not on my main computer. When mousing over a button, the color changes back to normal. When changing the 'override colors' setting from 'only with high contrast themes' to 'never', the issue persists.

It happens in both Firefox and in Thunderbird. No other programs I have installed do this. https://prod-cdn.sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2018-08-15-03-05-20-cb81ac.png https://prod-cdn.sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2018-08-15-03-05-26-cf81bc.png https://prod-cdn.sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2018-08-15-03-05-32-3ead30.png

I'm not sure how to describe the issue I'm seeing. It's like elements aren't rendering correctly. I'll get sort of x's in text boxes or squares over buttons and different things. It's not consistent though across every website.

Here's where I have seen it occur: The Firefox start page (the tiles listed as top sites) The search textbox on the Mozilla support website The slider button on the Speed Dial 2 Buttons on the Dice with Buddies page from Facebook The add-on button for Firefox add-ons - though this only happens when the button has focus The cancel button for image uploads on this page?

I've attached images for each of these. Hopefully they load in the same order I'm uploading them to try to match how they're listed above.

I did try searching for an something that might cause this, but no luck. Is this common? Is it a setting I need to change? Or an add-on that isn't working maybe?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Since Firefox Quantum 60, i have no sound in Firefox at all, also most videos don't play, except for WEBM & Ogg (But still no sound on either)

I have reinstalled flash 5 times to no avail. I have followed every support page i could find, did not fix it. I have started firefox in safemode, still no cigar, i have reset firefox completely with a fresh profile, still not fixed.

Yes, volume sliders are checked and are on full volume, but there is no audio output shown at all from firefox. I have disabled tracking protection, hardware acceleration, and everything there is to mess with in the general settings, still no sound. I have also set the all sandbox.content.levels to 0 or 1 as a test, which unfortunately did not fix the issue either.

I'm using Windows 7 x64

my windows7 taskbar: 11+ replicate FF windows w-multiple tabs each is normal use for me. restart FF puts them in new order L to R i can deal with that but would like to be able to restart with these icons staying in the 'same places' because i'm getting old and cranky and forget where i put things more often now.

they're all up there on the taskbar OK but in a different order each time i restart FF. i don't recall locating a Topic similar, or seeing a likely category from Options.

i'm not in a Rush, but have found FF help questions successfully answered in the past. thanks for helping.

I'm using Firefox 61.0.2 under Mac OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6.

I drive for Uber. The Uber website has worked fine for years. Then, in late July or August, Uber's website's web pages started showing up in Greek! Since then, I've been using Safari instead because I learned all the Greek I know from college math class, which isn't enough to navigate the Uber website using Firefox.

I have not noticed this effect on any other website. Safari Version 11.1.2, on the same webpage, shows me English.

Please suggest how I can research what to do to get Uber's website's webpages to render in English.

I'm on Firefox Quantum 61.0.2. Four years ago (1/16/14, 6:55 PM), when I was on 26.0, I posted here recollecting a feature in an earlier version where you could grab the little icon right left of the URL and drag it to a Finder container, and... a teensy file would appear, named something intelligent, with the extension ".webloc". Very handy sometimes.

That feature had disappeared, but, at the time, with your help, we figured out that Command-drag would do the same thing on Version 26.0.

Now, using Version 61, that feature has disappeared again. I tried dragging with nothing, Command, Option and Control. Each of them simply opened the tab in a new window. No webloc files were created. Any idea where this feature went?


Maybe there's a better way to solve my problem besides weblocs. For one of my frequently-performed tasks, I need to open four websites simultaneously, in four separate tabs. I can enter their URLs manually, but I was hoping to have a folder containing four weblocs that I could open all at once. An Applescript would work, but is there some other Firefox feature that I could learn to use that would accomplish the same thing?

All of a sudden Firefox can no longer open PDF files. Instead it tries to repeatedly to re-download them. Even when trying opening a PDF file, from my local explorer, into firefox it just tries to re-download the file.

My issue doesn't seem to have anything to do with Firefox Handler options. (It's currently set to "always ask" for PDF files, because if I set it to "preview in Firefox" or "Use Firefox" I just get an infinite loop of tabs trying to re-download the pdf). I've tried deleting the handler.json file, which also did not fix my issue.

Firefox just doesn't seem to be able to view PDF files anymore :/.

I'll try re-installing and report back if that resolves the issue.

In some cases it works, in some not. Right here it works, for example. On Github doesn't.

Just for the record, FF Developer Edition 62.0b20 works fine.

Why has the inbuilt Firefox password manager not implemented SHA-256 yet? I recently checked through all the change logs since 2018 since April 2018 and don't yet see it being implemented. I am very much against using 3rd party password managers and hence I have been waiting for the FF password manager to become good enough, but I don't see any good happening.

Is it not being done just to get people to register for online account? The idea of saving passwords on the cloud just to have it encrypted, given the possibility that man in the middle attacks can simply ruin all my saved passwords in one go looks like a round about solution to a simple problem. Also, Firefox doesn't work properly on my (new) Android device so there is no reason for me to use the online account.

Is there any way I can implement SHA-256 without having to bother and/or beg you multiple times? Please give me a viable method (I am an intermediate in C/C++ never done anything in a big software before).

Hi, I have 61.0.2 (64 bit windows 10)

Narrator doesn't show the icon ANYMORE. I used it daily, didn't change anything recently BUT only followed this guide to disable WebRTC

In short:

   Enter "about:config" in the firefox address bar and press enter.
   Press the button "I'll be careful, I promise!"
   Search for "media.peerconnection.enabled"
   Double click the entry, the column "Value" should now be "false"
   Done. Do the WebRTC leak test again.
   media.peerconnection.turn.disable = true
   media.peerconnection.use_document_iceservers = false
   media.peerconnection.video.enabled = false
   media.peerconnection.identity.timeout = 1

is this the reason, is this a good thing after all?

Every time I start Firefox, I am immediately prompted to log into iCloud (for Windows). I can easily cancel out of this, but it's an unnecessary annoyance. This repeats once an hour for as longs as I am using Firefox.

This doesn't happen with Microsoft Edge, so I assume there is something about Firefox or its setting that is causing this problem.

Anyone have a solution?
