I have been trying to find a solution for this problem for several months with zero results.

I use duckduckgo search. No matter what I search for, or how I word it I get "results" from 3 - 5 websites (2 of which are usually amazon & youtube - even though I'm not shopping or looking for a video). None of the non-results are remotely relevant, but they are the only results I get... Duplicated... Until I hit the "no more results" brick wall. And speaking of youtube... When I am looking for a video (audiobooks usually) my "results" consist of 3 or 4 channels (always the same 3 or 4). I get several videos from each of the channels & duplicates of those same videos then I slam up against the "no more results" brick wall.

I've cleared caches & cookies & stored data. I've deleted search history, cleared search history, paused search history, etc... Those things produce no changes whatsoever. I searched (at a friend's house on her computer) for information. The results might or might not have been relevant. It involves inserting great huge heaps of java-script into my machine. In spite of being computer illiterate, I'm not stupid. So, no I didn't copy or paste any script or download anything.

Everything I know about computers I had to figure out for myself. The most important discovery I made is that the way computers function is perfectly logical - frequently unreasonable, but always logical. That's why although I am computer-illiterate, I'm not computer-dysfunctional. I've been able to make laptops, tablets & android phones do things the experts & professionals said were impossible. But if people try to explain stuff to me by speaking computer code, all I hear is whah, whah, whah (like in the way grownups talk in the Charlie Brown cartoons).

I sincerely appreciate any information or suggestions anyone can offer. Just give it to me in plain english. I'm an intelligent adult who grew up in a socially-insignificant school district.

Thanks in advance to all!

Hi, I was downloading a few videos last night and the last one seemed to get stuck. Completely done, .part was gone but would not finish. I could not pause it either. Left in the downloads as "unknown time left". Downloading it again finished with no problem but was left with a file I could not delete. I tried downloading a couple other things and they too got stuck. I used an addon download manager that removed them from Firefox's download progress but could not delete them. I tried using cmd to delete them and had no luck being able to delete them that way. So I am stuck with 1 at "unknown time", 1 file at .98 gb, 2 files with 0 bytes and 3 .part that I cannot remove.

Edit: Restarting let me delete them. I'm just worried as to why they wouldn't finish now

I'm trying to paste text into a text field so that I can list stuff for sale on eBay. When I paste what I've written in my word processor (LibreOffice) the text I paste will not change to the text style I have preset in the text field for my eBay listing. If I were doing this in another word processor I would be able to use a Paste Special command so that the text I'm pasting would automatically change to fit the text style already in use in the document.

Does Firefox not support this ???? Why Not?????

Hello,

In Firefox's toolbar there is an unknown ad blocker named Ad Blocker. This is NOT Ad Block.

This supposed ad blocker is not blocking ads and cannot be uninstalled; it does not show up as an extension or add-on.

I also interferes with other ad blockers like Ad Block, so I had to uninstall the latter

The symbol for this Ad Blocker in the menu/toolbar at the top is a shadowed, almost invisible, backward hand, the mirror opposite of the hand symbol Ad Block uses as its insignia.

I cannot find any information about this Ad Blocker ad blocker online.

Does anyone know about it and how to get rid of it?

Also - I've run three version of anti-malware software and none found it or got rid of it.

Thank you

Any idea why it is taking such a long time to get the updated version of FB Purity, 33.6 plug-in approved so that the end user (me) can download it? Firefox currently only recognizes 33.2. It is available for Edge and Chrome. I prefer not to get tangled with the other options. If I do, it's probably going to be to dump FF altogether.

Hi!

Since most content is in English and search engines always link to the English version, I usually browse the english version of mozilla pages. But here on support in particular I have to contend with the pathetic date format where you can't tell which is day or month or year. So why can't I find a way to set the date format. Even the majority of tiny websites/forums have an option to specify the date format.

Changes in Firefox from Version 86 to 90, 92

Apologies for asking this here, but I've done the Google and can't find an answer.

Background: I keep 2-3 Firefox versions and profiles on my computer. The software is in, for example, directories FFox82, FFox84, FFox86 The profiles are in, for example, directories Firefox82, Firefox84, Firefox86 (The software and profiles are on different drives.)

When I do an upgrade, I copy the newest software to a new directory and rename it (e.g., FFox92 - so now there are 4 sw directories) Then I copy the newest profile directory and give it a corresponding name (e.g., Firefox92 - so now there are 4 profile directories). I install the new version to its directory and thenlaunch with a -p option. Then I create a new profile and point it to the corresponding folder. Then I launch the new version with the -p option pointing to the new profile directory.

This has worked for decades.

But I just tried it with Firefox 90 and Firefox 92 and NO GO. It acts as if I've never used Firefox before. No apps, no toolbars, no bookmarks, nothing.

What is going on? Am I stuck on Firefox86 for the rest of the century?

And, please, don't tell me how wonderful these new versions are and I should simply accept the change. I have a virtual lifetime invested in the toolbars, extensions and bookmarks on my computer.

I simply want to know if there is a fix and, if so, what it is.

This just started occurring on my PC when I use Firefox: why is the background of the address bar orange/yellow with diagonal stripes and there is a robot at the start of the web address? I'm concerned it may be a virus or the web browser is being remotely monitored.

Please refer to the attached image. Thank you,

Hi, I've been using the Mozilla Firefox browser for a while now and I have noticed that i can not use my microphone to speak anywhere. For example, I can't speak what I want to say on Google Translate, & I can't talk in voice chats on Discord (random examples). It always says that voice input is not supported. May I know why your browser doesn't support voice input?

So one day Firefox just stopped responding, it started responding again, but now it just randomly stops and then starts again a few seconds later. Bitdefender detects no viruses and I tried disabling all extentions and addons. I have an Intel Core i9-10900K, an RTX 2070 SUPER, and 32GB of RAM, so that isn't the problem, but I did observe that when it stops responding, logical processors 2, 12, 14, and 15 spike in usage.

Hi So my problem started a few days ago i don't remember exactly when. The graphs on the binance exchange site have stopped updating for me on Firefox. I mean when i load the page with the graph in it the graph is static and i have to keep refreshing the entire page to see changes in the graph. I should mention that the graphs on a different site that i use work fine and display the prices in real time.

I also had microsoft edge and the same problem happens there too but today i installed chrome and the problem in NOT present there. So the site and graphs update and work properly in chrome but not in Firefox or edge. I prefer to use Firefox for everything!

-I tried Firefox safe mode and the problem is still there. -I also made a new Firefox profile and the problem is still there. -Finally i even refreshed Firefox but even that didnt fix the problem. I should mention that i have Firefox sync enabled so after i refreshed Firefox it automatically installed back all my addons (and other settings?) so even though it is refreshed it looks and behaves exactly like before i don't know if that "cancels" the effects of the refresh.

I am running win10 and my antivirus is kaspersky. I had Kaspesky on "pause protection" while i was troubleshooting but that didnt help either. I hope i managed to explain everything because i find it hard to express my self in English. If you need me to clarify anything let me know. I hope someone can help me with this because I don't know what else to try.

Thanks in advance Kiri

I have noticed that if I leave an empty firefox tab open after sometime the empty tab somehow would start using a large amount of RAM. I don't know if it is expected behaviour or not. I came to know about this problem as I use a laptop and I very rarely put it to sleep, so my laptop would idle out on charging with a empty firefox tab open and it would start out with consuming reasonable amount of RAM but after I return mabye after 20 minutes and the RAM usage would skyrocket to about a gig for only firefox with that empty tab. I do have 4 add-ons installed but firefox behaves the same when I restart it in safe mode. Any help is very much appreciated.

I use Firefox on 3 devices: - a PC at home (Win 10, FF standard instalation), - an Android phone (Xiaomi Mi 9T) - a PC at work (Win7) with the Firefox portable version.

I have the latest, stable, up-to-date versions of Firefox on all my devices.

The problem is when I save a bookmark on one of the computers at work or at home, and then the devices synchronize. Bookmarks between computers do not remember their position in the bookmark folders and are saved in the main folder.

I have already performed all the steps based on the instructions in this article, but the problem persists. ([https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1270667])

Hello,

I'm using firefox sync with an own sync server.

Since a few weeks the synchronization of tabs doesn't work right. I use five devices. On my Macbook, the iPhone and the iPad mini I can see and reach the tab-sync of these three devices.

On another iPad and an Linux-PC, wich I added at last, I can see the tab-sync of all five devices.

How can I force the first three devices to sync the tabs of all five devices? I did alread several steps of testing and trying, like manual synchronization or remove and adding again all devices to the account.

It would be great to find some help! Thanks in advance and best regards - Daniel
