I am a long-time user and fan of Firefox (which will remain my browser of choice). For that reason it seems, I keep getting prompted to pin Firefox to the Taskbar.

I don't want to do that, as I keep my taskbar small and uncluttered (nothing is pinned there). Hence I'd like to turn off being asked. However, when I get the above message I have only 2 options: Yes or Not Now. And it seems 'Not now' means "not now, but of course feel free to keep asking".

Is there any way I can turn of this pop up permanently?

Like the title says the 3 finger gesture to move between full screen images doesn't work with firefox 100.0 Macbook pro 16" 2019 running catalina 10.15.7. What happens is that full screen is exited and browser moves back to the previous page.

Only had this problem after updating firefox.

I've seen conversations from as far back as 10 years ago where people have had this problem but their fixes don't work.

This should work without an add on plug in or app. It should simply work.

Done all the usual things restarted finder, restarted computer, checked all the setting in computer preferences. Tried other browsers and it works with both google and safari.

I switched to firefox and spent a lot of time organizing and setting up only to have this problem. This is a feature I use often (every day) so it is a deal breaker even with all the time I've invested in switching.

Does anyone have an answer for me? How do I get the 3 finger gesture back on my MacBook?

</body></html>

To use this, I just click it in whatever folder it's in and it comes up in Firefox. If I run this on either Linux or Mac, when I click "Nucleotide" it takes me to the URL. If I do this on Windows 11, my URL looks like the following:

file:///C:/Users/xxxxx/Documents/www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore

What do I need to do on Windows to get the real URL to execute?

Thanks, Joe

Happens on a number of websites when I press buttons, like Youtube logo for example, blue box surrounds the logo. Other cases when i adjust the volume button on a youtube video, the button is remembered and whenever I press spacebar with the intention of pausing the video, the video gets muted instead because the volume button is highlighted and remembered.

Following site is immediately hijacked to a scam site asking for login apparently to access private info. It happens with Firefox (only) whenever security setups are set "not to track", "not to prompt for passwords", "not to prompt for credit cards" "no history" "reset of cookies at logout" etc.. then the site below: http://thaimassage-herborn.de/ is redirected to SCAM SITE: https://xb7.serverdomain.org/admin/index.php appearing as "Adminpanel" asking for Login etc..

At the same time following site is partially blocked on the news banner pictures, with a white sheet over them, whenever down scroll is hit. https://www.tgrthaber.com.tr/

Only by resetting firefox deals with the issues. But ofcourse with the reason, above security settings removed.

Virusscanner was not able to detect this hijacking or the reason behind.

Is this a firefox software issue? Is there a way to resolve this? Thank you already for any support or suggestions to resolve.

I am using Firefox version 100.0.1 (64-bit) and whenever I try to search in the search bar it will not provide me with any search results. I stays on the same page it was on before I hit enter and the address for that website reappears. If I click on the drop down menu and select a website, it will take me to that website, unless the website is Google.

Hello

Is there a way to find previously viewed images somewhere? I was watching an image in the Firefox browser a few days ago and now that I went back to check it again the page had been removed by the user. I assume all images that I´ve viewed has been stored somewhere on my computer? Where can I see these?

The same question goes for webpages. The image was on a webpage that I would like to view again but it was removed along with the image. Can I see whole pages that I´ve previously browsed somewhere?

I know this has been posssible in the past but it was like 10 years ago I last checked.

Thanks!

I Keepgetting the message

"Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at cunard.msgfocus.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web."

How can i stop that so that firefox brings up the web page i am trying to get.
