I have tried EVERYTHING to save websites from which I want pop-ups enabled -to no avail! Anytime I reboot, my pop-up exceptions list is reset with no sites saved. Please help?
I have a nearly identical machine, Windows 7 OS on both (64bit). One of the machines saves pop-ups just fine. I've tried every trouble-shooting article found w/in the forum on this topic. I have cross-checked each and every setting on the machine that successfully saves my pop-up exception list vs. the machine that NEVER saves my pop-up list. They are identical machines, similar programs/set-ups, et. I use the same FF add-ons for each machine, identical. I've tried FF "refresh", and I've gone so far as to uninstall and re-install (I even tried Revo uninstaller on one of many Firefox un/re install attempts. Exhaustive lengths to make sure previous firefox remnants of profiles past were not used.
What do I have to do here? I have Internet Explorer disabled on both my machines. I use CCleaner to remove temp files. (but again, they are the same settings and one machine works, the other doesn't). I checked my MBAM settings (same on both machines). Currently I don't have any other browsers installed -but I can always "re-allow" Internet Explorer if needed (again, IE is disabled on both machines).
Please help! I'm dying to figure this out!
PS -Both machines do typically state "you are using an older version of Firefox" (like atop this page, or the Firefox plug-in check) -despite both being up-to-date, current 64bit versions. The "educated guesses" about my FF version and OS are incorrect. As of this post Im using FF version 50.0.2, and Adobe Flash Player Shockwave Flash 23.0 r0 v. 188.8.131.52 "up to date". Lastly, both machines were rolled back to windows 7 pro. Actually, neither were rolled back, technically speaking (I just installed Win7 on them b/c I prefer it to 8, 8.1, or 10).

Problem: A week or so ago my Facebook AudioChat stopped working, before it always worked perfectly. On Skype it also still works but on facebook i can no longer connect to the other person.
Cause: I had Comodo firewall installed on my computer but that came with Geekbudy an ad-maleware aplication. I removed that and after i could no longer connect to the internet. I then reset my winsock and could get on the net again, but firefox would not run. It started but stayed in the background if i looked at my taskmanager. I could get it to start by turning my wireless off by using the knob on top of my Elitebook laptop. When off firefox started sometimes and then i could turn on wireless and work on it but voicechat stopped working
Fix: I then searched for a tool to uninstall the left over parts of Comodo firewall and Firefox could run again in a normal way. But audiochat still wont work. So i think some kind of setting within firefox is turned off.
Done: I ran hours of anti vir and male and adware scans over my computer and also deleted some. And i turned media on in firefox as i saw that in the question options when creating this question. Tested but that did not make a change.
Windows Media or other plugins stopped working after Firefox update The Windows Media plugin is disabled in the latest Firefox. This article explains how to turn it back on. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/windows-media-or-other-plugins-stopped-working
Change a Firefox setting to turn these plugins back on
In the address bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear. Click I accept the risk! to continue to the about:config page. Search for plugins.load_appdir_plugins Double-click plugins.load_appdir_plugins to change its value to true.
Click the menu button New Fx Menu and then click Exit Close 29 . When you restart Firefox the plugins will be enabled.
Here is the topic where i found that i needed to remove more left over parts of comodo. This is a different question but the cause comes from that topic https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1148777

In Firefox, swiping on the touch screen results in selecting text, instead of scrolling (like on an iPad). Is it possible to change the behaviour, so that the touch screen can be used to scroll, while the mouse can be used to select text?
In Chrome, the behaviour is as expected (swipe to scroll, (mouse)drag to select).
I'm using Firefox 50.0 on Linux Mint 18 (based on Ubuntu 16.04). I have dom.w3c_touch_events.enabled set to 2, setting it to 1 does not help either.
Thanks for any help!

Up through version 48.0.2 (which I am presently running), Firefox would display a placeholder graphic on a page until an image loaded; this was controlled by the browser.display.show_loading_image_placeholder setting in about:config. When version 49 came out, the browser no longer did this, even though I have this value set to true. I value this particular behavior and do not understand why Firefox no longer responds the same way to the same setting. Is there some way to restore this particular behavior in newer versions of Firefox, or do I need to stick with 48.0.2 in order to have a browser that acts the way I want it to?

Hi! I've had multiple users with the issue of Printer Preferences not saving. I've read through a few documents and found solutions for some of the settings. But this setting won't stick for some reason. The check box to "Ignore Scaling and Shrink to Fit Page Width" won't stay checked. I've looked through the About:config page and the prefs.js file and can't seem to locate where I can manipulate this setting. When using the "Save Current Settings as Preset" option, it will allow me to save the preset but when I go back to select it my changes are no longer there.
Any additional assistance would be helpful.

I have a question which is similar to https://support.mozilla.org/zh-CN/questions/1015401 which does not have an answer. Basically, when using firefox on Surface 3 / Surface Pro 4, when you swipe up the screen to scroll the page, there is a high probability that you would be switched to another tab. In that question, disabling All-in-one gesture workarounds the problem. In my case, it's FireGesture. However, I don't want to disable this, since sometimes I use it with mouse and keyboard so gesture control is useful. With some experiments, it seems like that
- If you wait for one swipe to finish and then start another one, there is no problem.
- Only swiping up has this problem. Swiping down is ok.
- I've disabled prev-tab/next-tab gestures in FireGesture, but the problem persists.
Anyone else has better solution than just disabling gesture control addons?

As much as I love this extension, it occasionally loses it's functionality. Now this usually occurs after a Ff version update. To the developers credit, he updates quickly. However, yesterday was an example of how it sometimes fails for no apparent reason. Ff v 50.0.1 wasn't even released to the software sites like MajorGeeks and I still had the version of T F & S C that had been working flawlessly. I first checked to see if there was a Ff update. Then I tried updating the extension, which indeed was up to date. The most bewildering thing, and it has happened before, image restoration does not fix the issue. It's like the Ff profile is in another world. So, can I set my current toolbar font sizes and remove the extension? Thank you!

At the moment original browsing history component of Firefox looks pretty sad. It doesn't keep history forever.
In the past it was something like places.history.expiration.max_pages;151042.
Today I have installed addon called Expire History by Days and now max_pages variable changed to places.history.expiration.max_pages;999999.
But 999999 isn't really enough. I believe I visit more than 1000 pages per day, meaning it will keep my history for less than 1000 days. It is better than it was before, when I couldn't see where I went 2.5 months before.
Default CTRL-H search is really bad in Firefox, even worse than in Chrome(I took description from the page of Norwell History Tools addon):
Firefox displays it in such way that multiple visits to sites are displayed only once (the last visit). This makes firefox history look like it's no longer a log, but just useless censored collection of urls even though all the data is collected and stored. It makes it impossible to perform even simple investigative task like looking up where and when you might got infected with malware. What is sad part is that all modern internet browsers do the same thing or even worse... Referer, browsing breadcrumbs, clicked links info is limited to the peculiarities of firefox - it's far from complete and truthful representation of your Internet history. It will vary according to different factors like installed extensions, link type being clicked, how the link is being opened, content being viewed and how it's being viewed. All named anchors will break browsing history timeline (referrer info): like modern web2, web3 interfaces, gmail, search engine redirects or wikipedia internal linkage. Another instance where firefox makes your history very confusing is that it uses only one title for multiple visits to same url. Say you visit CNN daily and it's title changes daily, but firefox edits this url title every single time so if you look at visit to CNN from year ago you will see todays title. Soft hyphens (invisible, non printable character) is another issue that might prevent you from finding your history entry even if you know exactly how it is called. Some sites, newsletters, email publishers, etc use this technique. So you are not crazy if you can't find that entry in native firefox history viewer. i used in this paragraph probably 100 of soft hyphens. It looks like that If you have a web page open for more than 20 minutes and you click a link on that page firefox will register it as coming from nowhere if domain is not reachable/unavailable/expired firefox doesn't log it and you will not be able to find such visits in history as if your actions never happened.
Why don't I just use Expire History by Days + Norwell History Tools addons? Because of the problems(listed above) of original browsing history component of Firefox. And Norwell History Tools addon isn't that good, too(you can't even change sorting there).
Developers say they don't support keeping history forever in Chrome and Firefox because it will slow down performance, bluh-bluh-bluh. It could be the case 25 years ago, but I don't believe that with modern technologies that's so hard to keep complete history(URL, Title, even all text on the pages itself, so you can search not only in titles and urls but also in the text of visited pages) even of hundreds of millions of pages.
I understand that it will take much longer to search through 100 million of pages than through 150k of pages, but now I just don't have a choice: Now I can only search through last x amount of forced by developers visited pages(places.history.expiration.max_pages). And it should be done in the way that I can choose for how long back I want my browser to search: search only in last 150k visited pages or search in last 100 millions visited pages. Or maybe I want to search in first 10 millions visited pages(starting from first visited page ever and ending on the 10M visited page) and not in the last 100 millions, etc.
Is there some 'proper' browsing history addon for Firefox with rich support of searching techniques, like regular expressions, search through text of body of the visited pages, which keeps history forever, etc.?

I'm trying to bulk download some mp3's of a podcast, and firefox is merrily trying to play them in the browser. Right clicking/save as for all of the episodes I need to catch up on would be a bit of a pain, and frankly if I encounter an MP3 I'm more than likely going to be downloading it for later listening.
I found some previous similar questions, and the chosen answer was the about:config setting media.play-stand-alone. This, however, also makes the browser default to downloading webm files, rather than watching in the browser. I actually prefer watching them in browser since most I encounter are short <1 min clips.
Short: I want mp3 and other audio to be treated as a download, asking me where to save it and whatnot, but webm and other compatible video to go ahead and play in the browser by default. Is this doable?
