This has been going for a couple of days.

I have tried starting in safe mode, didn't help.

I have tried disabling JavaScript, didn't help.

Two "main sites" affected, Feedly and Gmail. Feedly had this problem but it disappeared after a while. Now Gmail is having problems. I can move around and read mails but not respond to them.

Other sites affected "seems" to have in common that they are blog-type, perhaps like WordPress or similar.

I have a Windows 10 computer with the same browser setup and there have been no problems there so far.

The version is 86.0.1 (64-bit).

I'm not technically advanced so please be gentle with me.

Firefox has been saving images from some sites as webp instead of JPG for a long time. There have been repeated threads on this subject which get locked and then pushed into the long grass.

Sure, I could botch a solution by installing an add-on to convert them, or I could use something like XnView (which I do, periodically, and in bulk) after the save event has happened, or I can edit about:info to tell Firefox not to accept webp - but this breaks functionality for some sites (like eBay), but I have found that in the end I have had to start switching to Microsoft Edge to do my browsing for a number of sites because Mozilla Firefox are ignoring repeated user requests to provide a simple option to STOP doing this.

I don't want to save any files as webp - save them as PNG if you like, or jpg, but I use an ancient copy (v3.24) of ACDsee (from the days of Windows 98) for my image browsing, sorting, viewing etc because it is perfect, blisteringly quick, has no extra editing or other functionality which I don't need or want, and it doesn't bloat up anywhere with thumbnail files... but sadly webp didn't exist back then so it doesn't support it. I have used a number of much more up to date browser-viewers, but there is nothing can touch this OLD version of ACDsee for basically brilliant design.

I'm not changing my image viewer. It's non-negotiable.

I WILL however change my web browser if I have to, if the developers of the browser continually kick into the long grass to lock, hide away and pretend there's isn't an issue which has been repeatedly flagged as an annoyance for so many users.

I have been using one form or other of 'Mozilla' family of browsers since the days of Quarterdeck Mosaic. I don't particularly want to switch my loyalty, especially to Microsoft, but if they are listening to what customers want and providing it, and Mozilla are not, what else is there to do ?

I am a retired systems developer. I cannot envisage this being SUCH a big ask.

Modern software treats its users like idiots and takes away control, doing everything it's assumes on their behalf that they will want.

It is not difficult to provide an option within settings for when saving webp files to save as webp, png or jpg with conversion if necessary. All you need to do is hear the screams and respond. :)

We have a new add-on of our own that we were trying to add to the Firefox browser. This add-on was tested locally and worked fine. However, upon trying to install the official add-on to the browser, it is throwing the following error, "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt".

The add-on in question is, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/searchgiggle-search/

Any suggestions to address this issue would be appreciated.

I also noticed another post or two about the same topic. As per those posts, the issue got resolved automatically after some time. Can I expect the same?

Hi guys i'm new in the forum so i have no idea if anybody else allready had my problem,i've tried to fix it myself but i cant seem to get it done. Yesterday i had a problem with my OS linux,and i had to reinstall the system,while i was pretty sure i had all bookmarks saved in an external HD i went straight to a quick format and reinstall of the OS,after installed all the due system update.

The Problem:

While i was importing the bookmarks.html i stored in external HD i noticed that nothing was being added in the bookmarks of Firefox,so i tried few times just in case i was doing something wrong but still nothing was being added in the bookmarks,so i tried to import the bookmarks on Tor Browser and the same thing happened nothing was imported. So it came to my mind that the .html file could've been damaged. Now i tried many ways to open the file either in command line or text editor i even tried using libreoffice,in the case of text editor,command line such gedit,pico,nano it loaded the file but it was heavily encrypted,in the case of libreoffice shortly after i tried to open the file popped up a message telling me that the file was corrupted and libreoffice couldn't read it and stopped.

I need a solution to either fix the .html file or decrypt it so i can recover the web addresses inside and it would be very bad for me since my bookmarks.html is 3.3Mb large with ALOT of bookmarks inside.

Can anybody tell me how to?

Thank you in advance for any help or suggestion that may help me to retrieve my bookmarks. Ludo.

P.S. OS Linux BackBox 7 up to date along with it latest version of Firefox that update server provides me.

Firefox 86 for Windows gets a beautiful new Print dialog, with great Print Preview and other functionality. The Mac? Nope!

And there is no technical reason for this! Chrome/Vivaldi/Brave all have a similar dialog box that makes it easy not to waste paper when a website insists on printing a second page for a single word.

Come on, Mozilla! A little feature parity would be nice – especially for such basic functionality!

I'm having a problem with firefox and the youtube webpage. When I use the youtube search box on the youtube site I can't use the space bar to create spaces. It seems to be stuck in media control mode as the space bar only pauses and unpauses videos now. I am not focused on the video bar of a video which would normally result in space pausing the video. My cursor in the search box and the space bar still pauses and unpauses but no spaces are made in the search box.

I do not have this problem in Chrome or Edge.

What I have tried doing:

1. Restart machine 2. Refresh firefox 3. Uninstall firefox

Point 3 above doesn't seem to be any different from refreshing firefox.

I am not sure what else to do here. Perhaps I'm just missing something basic?

I have selected the option "Restore previous session". Normally, it works fine, but if the last Firefox window closed before was in private mode, it doesn't - instead I get the last sessions of this private window. I'm not quite sure, but I think this behavior was different (= Firefox restores always the tabs from the last non-private window) before one of the last updates.

I have a long-standing Firefox account under a primary email ("email1") with a secondary email (email2). I've gotten locked out. Firefox won't let me sign in under email2; it requires email1 for sign in.

For email1, I know the password but have set up two-factor authentication. I have my authentication device and authenticator app. But, perversely, there is no app entry for Firefox. I have Microsoft's app but I have used it only for Microsoft-related sites.

How the Devil I could have enabled 2-factor authentication but lost the Firefox entry for it in the app, I neither know nor understand.

I have access to both email1 and email2. I know all the answers to every secret question I've ever answered. I know everything about me there is to know. I am me after al.

Is there any information, any combination of facts, that might satisfy Firefox that I own my account and let me turnoff 2-factor authentication?

For example, I have both Chrome and Safari accounts set up with the same username and emails, and have access to them. My user name is absolutely unique across the internet. I guarantee that no one other than me has ever used it or could ever duplicate the scheme I used to create it. I have so many accounts set up under that username that it must be patently apparent that the one at Firefox in that username is mine. Perhaps that would satisfy Firefox that I own the same-configured account at Firefox.

Can I get the attention of a live person at Firefox, one that can reason independently, one that can recognize the obvious and certain fact that the account belongs to me?

What can i do? Please don't tell me nothing. I don't care about losing the data. I just want my email addresses freed up so I can open another account.

I got a bug, or a hack, or a virus that corrupted my FIREFOX so had to uninstall and re-install.

Have got most of it fixed except I can't get the BOOKMARK "BAR" to display [see pic attached].

If I select "Bookmark" on the top bar, it opens the bookmark window but I want it where it has been for over a decade, between HISTORY AND TOOLS.

I downloaded the current rel 86. My first FIREFOX copy was ~2004/2005 ver 1.0.
