DeviantART.com is forcing people to look at their advertisements. Anyone who tries to block the ads are met with their warning banner about blocking ads to let them through. This ugly banner takes up a good amount of the screen. You have to disable your ad-block software to see their ads! ( Or become a paying member which is forced down your throat. ) Most of these ads ask you to be a paying member. Some of these ads I'm told contain viruses & malware ready to infect computers. Some play audio disrupting viewing art on the site. How I know of the nastiness of these ads is through other users speaking up. I only noticed the plea on every page to beg people pay for membership. Even customized filtering won't remove the banner telling people to not use their ad-blocking software. It took downloading and installing Chrome - adding three different forms of ad-blockers, just to remove this banner 99% of the time. This is not friendly browsing and I don't want to switch to Chrome. Remember even Google based software isn't totally safe from this anti ad-block message. Please reply to me about how to resolve this. I've been using DeviantART since 2009.

Hi, from few days my Firefox installation do not work as expected. ALL exclusion lists (psw, pop-up ...) are cleaned when I close Firefox. I've read hundreds of article to try to fix this without success. I've also tried to unistall and install a new version of firefox without having any positive results. I don't have the cronology clean active and there is not an justification for this big issue.

Have someone had the same issue and have resolved this?

Thanks for your help

I have created a couple of small pages that i have embedded into another web site. The embedded pages wont display on that site in FireFox but works on Chrome with no problem. How can I fix this so others on FireFox can view these embedded pages? I didn't know it couldn't be displayed until tonight and I have been looking for a fix since I was told. Some may see a solid white box and others see a grey box with a plugin is needed to view this content. However, if I view the pages I created on the server they work fine in FireFox. Just not when embedded into another web site. I'm stumped...

Last night I decided to check the monthly weather forecast just before going to bed. I googled, "weather" then clicked through to a website before realizing it wasn't the one I meant to click. I backed out and clicked another link further down the list. I thought to myself, "That's going to screw me up in future because the wrong website will be a visited link and I'll mistake it for my preferred site."

I'm a long-time Firefox user and upgraded to Quantum when it first came out. I had made a cursory inspection of some of the new features at that time, and remembered the little counter-clockwise arrow in the toolbar was supposed to be a shortcut for deleting a set time frame of browsing history. Remembering this, I clicked it and a little menu popped up with options for how much history to forget. I clicked the option to forget 5 minutes.

I'd had multiple windows with multiple tabs open and they all disappeared instantly. I don't know if the browser crashed or simply intended to restart itself, but when it reopened there was only one window with no tabs.

I quickly hit the three bar menu button in the top-right and navigated to Library > History > Recently Closed Windows. Both this menu and Recently Closed Tabs were entirely empty.

My secondary Windows were of secondary importance, but my first and primary window had a large number of pinned and ordinary tabs that I did not want to lose. Tabs that I have been saving for months - some more than a year. Many that I migrated from Firefox I to Quantum. In the past, they have always been recoverable through the History. Now they seem to have been erased without a trace because I clicked, "Forget 5 minutes" from the toolbar.

I tried using Window's System Restore to reset my computer to a restore point from yesterday, but this had no effect on my Firefox session. Is there any way to reverse this and recover the session I've been using daily since before Quantum had been released? Is it anywhere?

Incomplete messages: I frequently receive messages from advertisers or newsletters containing multiple photos, posters, or the like, which never get filled in. They show up as empty boxes with a photo icon in the upper left corner. Sometimes they sit for many minutes and remain blank. The problem is not present when I use the Chrome browser.

What do I have to do to see the intended messages?

Initially this may seem the simplest problem but Im not sure it is. Perhaps due to order of closing session windows. I have this problem once every few years, So far I havent managed to set up anythng that works reliably to get me out of the mess. I use FF and have over 1000 tabs. 99% of the time 'restore session from before' after reboot works automatically great. Obviously with that many tabs things slow down, I then use CCLEANER to clear up and reboot.Today I forgot I had mutliple unimportant firefox windows open in addition to my MOTHERLOAD firefox window. I closed my session in perhaps some haphazzard order. On restarting I only had my unimportant windows open. I have not restarted after this Im still sitting in the new session. I have yet to find a consistent way to backup my open tabs. In the past I had an addon which wrote my tabs to a file but that addon got dumped after an update to FF. I REALLY REALLY dont want to lose my list of tabs as I wont be able to get this info back But more that this what is the safest way to back this info up on a regular basis in a way that I can get back to it? The current way is not 100% foolproof. :(

I have no history showing in FF as CCleaner removes all that (session data isnt removed). I assume I might have restore or previous restore files? Really not sure where to look. Im on Windows 10. Im not even sure where to look anymore for the sessonrestore file. Perhaps it doesnt save it when it isnt the last window to be closed??? Im reluctant to close this session now too. (Hope all my terminology is correct. Is it a window has mutiple tabs, you can have more than one window all of which comprise the session.)

Any help appreciated. Feeling sick and nervous

Hi, guys,

Recently FireFox is rendering Roboto font differently on YouTube. Everything used to look okay. I am using Windows 10. In other browsers everything looks fine. I tried to reinstall FireFox, but it didn't help. No addons are in use.

Any idea how to fix it? It is really annoying.

FF 72.0.1 for Windows. See if I can explain this problem. I migrated Chrome bookmarks to a new profile on my desktop. I cleaned up the migration bookmarks and saved to an html file for a backup. I also created a new profile on my laptop that I did attempt to sync with the desktop which was when I first noticed issues with the synced bookmarks/folders.

RIght now I have sync turned off on both machines and am concentrating only on the desktop. I deleted all the bookmarkbackups directory files and deleted places.sqlite and imported the saved html file to get the desktop where I want it. However, when I turn sync on (with sync turned off on the laptop) it adds folders and bookmarks, some of which were NOT there in the Chrome migration and some duplicates that I had created on the laptop. Deleting the WEAVE directory makes no difference. I don't know where this information is coming from, whether cache or ff backups, but I want to have a clean set of bookmarks, that I can sync to a clean laptop.

Can someone please tell me where this previously synced (some not) information is coming from so I can delete and start from scratch.

My FF spellcheck works just fine, for almost all sites. But there is one site in particular (requires a login; it is a Moodle learning management system online class page) that must tell my browser not to use spellcheck on it.

I`m reading shown below, to solve this, NPSWF32DLL should be deleted in Firefox program files folder by looking for a plugins folder, but i cant find "Firefox program files folder". It also says to delete corresponding flash player.xpt, Could you help please?. My computer is Windows 10-Firefox 49.0.2

""Go into the Firefox program files folder and look for a plugins folder. If you find a folder by that name, open it and see if there is a NPSWF32.DLL file in there. If so, delete that file and delete the corresponding flashplayer.xpt file from that folder. Actually, you can delete that folder altogether - Firefox hasn't had that folder for a number of years now, but will use whatever files might be in there from years ago.""

Hello, I've got like 6th BSOD while using Firefox. The problem started after updating to Firefox 57 beta. The common thing that I've found with those bluescreens is: - media - selection.

I'm almost sure that it happens after trying to drag anything. You know what I'm talking about: if we have an image we can 'drag' it and it becomes semi-transparent. This doesn't happen every time - firefox needs to be opened for some time. It's connected with YouTube, static images and - I think - selected text.

I wanted to attach minidump files, but I forgot I've cleaned them up, and the ones from last 3 BSODs were not created (I didn't want to wait, the code was the same, the file was the same).

SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (win32kfull.sys) or SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (win32k.sys)

Both connected with ntoskrnl.exe

I've reinstalled my graphic drivers, thinking it was them, but BSOD happens every time in firefox, never in anything else, and it didn't occur before 57 I'd like not to surf in safe mode; this BSOD doesn't happen regularly. I fear the internet without adblock. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

My BMP files open from my Atlassian site in Chrome and IE but *NOT* in Firefox...it used to work but some version broke it. The "Properties" in Atlassian says "New Content Type=image/bmp" when you import a BMP file which works in Chrome and IE but I get a window with <The image "blah blah blah" cannot be displayed because it contains errors> in Firfox 72.0.1 under Windows 10 (and Windows 7). If I MANUALLY CHANGE every file to "New Content Type=bmp" then they will open in Firefox. Please FIX this..."image/bmp" and "bmp" are the SAME THING!

Attached is a sample file...no wait this will *NOT* let me attach a BMP file (apparently you just hate that filetype)!

I've been using Firefox to store logins and passwords and manage bookmarks on one computer for 10 years+. I always just opened a browser, clicked "tools" then went to my saved passwords. Today I got a new computer and wanted to sync with my Firefox from the old computer. The old computer is asking for a Firefox password, which I don't have (I've tried everything I can think of but I set it 10 years ago). I searched for help online and tried setting a "Master Password." Now, despite entering the EXACT password I selected, it is saying it's wrong and I'm locked out of all of my saved logins on the original computer as well.

I have a secondary email but nothing seems to generate a recovery email (yes, I am stupid and didn't enable recovery key and now I cannot do it because I don't have the password). Is there any way for me to get back into my saved logins? I am using the old computer to work from home and cannot complete any work now. The company sent me a brand new laptop, but all of my logins and passwords are on the old computer tha now wants a master password.
