Hello everyone,

I have a problem. I have seen that there have been discussions about this in the past. Unfortunately I have not found a solution and the discussions are all archived.

Now to the problem: Various pages have no favicon in Firefox when I drag them into the bookmark bar as a bookmark. However, when the page is active in the tab, a favicon is visible there.

The problem does not seem to be unique to me. Several people have tested it. It also seems to be a problem in Firefox only. In other browsers, this problem does not occur.

What can website owners do to fix this problem?

Here is an example of a site where I have the problem. www.organspende-register.de

Many thanks in advance. Best regards

Firefox won't update to version 127 on macOS 10.15.7

I am running macOS 10.15.7 and Firefox won't upgrade past ESR v. 115 to the "regular" version 127.

Alternately, downloading the Firefox v. 127 installer and running won't update ESR v. 115 nor will it import bookmarks or data from the previous version ESR 115. Firefox v. 127 installs and starts as if I am a new user without any update or import option so that all previous settings, passwords, and data from ESR v. 115 are lost.

Is there a work-around for the upgrade to keep continuity, settings, bookmarks, and data when migrating to v. 127? Thanks!

When I access a location-aware website, I'm asked if I'll allow it to use my location. My problem is that the pop-up window won't allow me to do anything. I can't block, allow, close the window — nothing. Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere?

I receive e-mail from websites where I subscribe. Many times, the message from the sites (kelbyone.com, to name one) contain a graphic (jpg) that does not display in Outlook.com. Microsoft Tech Support is unresponsive. The sending websites refuse to help.

It seems to me that FF chokes on the length of the hyperlink. Here is a sample: https://kelbyone.acemlnb.com/lt.php?x=3DZy~GE2JaTN5XV.-wy5heOd~nAnuwAjluw2Z5PEIaOb5p8qy0y.0uJz2nRzit~yjvYwXncWJXCf657

If I paste the hyperlink into the search window, the page will load. When I forward the e-mail from Outlook to yahoo mail, the image displays.

I am running extensions Adblocker Ultimate and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials.

I would like help with this, at least, to identify where the problem is.

This is not a bug or issue, rather a use case question. I have a webpage with information and I don't want to accidentally click or submit anything on the page.

This could also be considering having a form etc in draft form as view-only so you go into "View Only Mode" and work the webpage as a reference etc. without having to worry about any accidental submission or mistakes.

If someone knows of Add-ons or how we can achieve it with FF, it would be much appreciated. Posting, since I expect to have this case often.

Hi, I've recently downloaded firefox and trying to add extensions that were similar to the ones I used on chrome. My problem is that all the extensions (Hoverzoom, Short Keys) in the extensions tab in the toolbar and appear to not be working (both in private and normal browsing). However the extensions (Ublock, SponsorBlock) that have their own icon on the toolbar seem to be working fine.

I've attached a reference image,

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello! My name is Anya. I am desperately trying to manage my social media addiction and to help support that I am wondering if its possible to disable the privacy window. I know I can install a website blocker - which I have, but it does not apply to the private window so I have full access to social media on it, I just have to log in. I want to COMPLETELY block Facebook and Instagram off of my laptop. Is this possible? Thank you!
