I only experienced this issue when upgrading to 74.0, but it happens on websites multiple sites now. I have also verified via other browsers that this is a specific Firefox issue.

I have tried all of the recommended solutions that I have been able to identify: removed AV extensions, created a new profile, reset proxy settings, cleared cache & cookies, refreshed Firefox, restarted in safe mode to attempt to access the websites, turned off VPN, etc.

Looking for additional recommendations or solutions.

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.

I used to scan prints on my Brother printer/scanner (MFC-9330CDW) and download them to folders on my computer. In the past I was able to download the scans (pdfs) to any folder on my desktop. Now I am unable to do that. I would like to be able to correct that issue, because I use the scanning to save printed references for genealogical research. Please let me know how to get it back to the way it was, it is too complex and cumbersome the way it is now. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Firefox on Windows - Trackers Identified vs Protection Dashboard Issues

There are two issues (or confusion) concerning tracker notifications on Firefox for Windows. Recently after a FF update, I noticed, when opening a URL link, a small pop up window, lower right hand side would open listing the trackers associated with that page. Most are lined out and a few are not (depends on the page). Then the pop up window goes away.

First issue: How do you make that pop up stay open so that you can read the information it is displaying? How can you recall the pop up, if you need to? What does lined out mean vs. not lined out? Obviously, I can take a guess here but it would be nice to have an official reference or explanation.

Second Issue: I would expect that the Safe Protection Dashboard would be in agreement with the info displayed in that tracker pop up window. It does not. Open a URL, the tracker pop up window opens and lists, for example: 8 trackers, 6 of which are lined out, 2 are not. Go to the Safe Protection dashboard and it ALWAYS says "No trackers know to Firefox were detected on this page." --> Well, something ain't right here. These two tracker status indicators should be in agreement. And, just in case, they don't have to be in agreement, then there should be some explanation as to why there are different results.

Thank you for a great product and the attention to detail.

Obtaining the full Firefox download from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ has worked through versions 78.0.1. It is not showing version 78.0.2, which is now available (it still only downloads 78.0.1). The full download from this web site through version 78.0.1 has updated Firefox *AND* the Mozilla Maintenance Service. Downloading the 78.0.2 update via the browser only updates the browser, but not the Mozilla maintenance service. Does it matter anymore? Will this be fixed, perhaps via the migration to Firefox accounts? Maybe this service is no longer required for more recent versions of Firefox?

Up to now I have used the URL https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ to download and test new versions of Firefox on various machines. It is somewhat troubling that this option does not appear to be working. Does anyone know if this is a temporary hiccup or a permanent change?

This may be a question for Mozilla people to answer.

Thanks

I changed the page setting parameters on the print preview page. When I pressed apply the screen changed to "preparing,,," and froze. Now nothing will print but the small title header across the top. When I try to go into print preview to change it, the program dumps my selection and I go back to the home screen in the e-mail. I have tested my printer in other programs and its working fine.

When a routine Firefox update happens on the first restart I will get "pest" screens, a browser tab, one in particular is for Ant video downloader but there are others, all related to add-ons I have installed. These are a pain in their own right but they also stop Restore Previous Session from working.

How can I defeat these screens?

I have checked this problem in the forum and the answers are all 3 years old and the about:config no longer contains the items they say to fix as described.

When I click in the search box to start to type a search, a drop down menu appears showing several other search engines. All of which I removed as alternates in the "One Click" search engine Options.

I do not want Firefox offering anyone an option to use another Search engine.

Can this drop down menu be disabled ?

The forum solution fixes, for this situation, no longer apply to the current version of Firefox

Thanks

With the new Firefox update Roblox has stopped launching correctly. When I click on a game I want to play in the Roblox website, and pop-up shows up asking where I want to launch the game link. I go into my application, select Roblox, then click open link in this application. The problem is that instead of launching the game in Roblox, it just opens the Roblox website in a new tab. This problem is specific to Firefox, Chrome and Safari work just fine.
