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?

I cannot seem to narrow this down. I am getting a ntdll.dll exception within the error that I see in Event Viewer -> Application logs. This issue is reproducible on two different computers, opening various sites. I suspected it was extensions (as those would be a commonality) but I had the same crash occur in Troubleshoot Mode. It does happen less frequently on a newer machine, but it still happens. I find that opening something such as YouTube or The New York Times makes it crash faster, meaning some performance thing.

Attached are two distinct errors that happen each time.

Up until Firefox 64, Firefox had limited support for RSS:

  • Viewing a RSS feed would show you the feed items, with an option to do something with the feed.
  • Live bookmarks would actually subscribe to those feeds

I can understand removing Live Bookmarks. It's a big feature. I don't understand removing the (what I assume to be) XSLT stylesheet that made RSS feeds not look like a wall of XML. Does anybody know what the conversation was here? Are there minutes?

Even basic RSS support helps people interact with the web, and since Chrome and Firefox both dumped RSS, users are being driven further and further into the arms of "Platforms" who handle this stuff through black-box algorithms. And so much tracking.

Mozilla should reverse this one. Bring RSS back hard.

Hi. Recently, when I open "beisat.com" or "beisat.org" in firefox it shows the website content in a bad shape. I am 100 percent sure that it is not from server because I have tested with my phone and another laptop. Also tried multiple internet connections. I failed to find a way resolving this error.

I am using Windows 10 and have spent considerable time trying to recover my lost bookmarks after restoring computer to earlier time. I have followed 'help' guidelines but nothing works.

Firefox claims that bookmarks are saved to a backup profile but there is nothing in the folder.

These are very important research bookmarks collected over years!

I did a Firefox Refresh which messed up my toolbar and I lost an icon so I tried to restore computer to an earlier date which I have done successfully before without problem and without losing my bookmarks.

Please provide easy to understand step by step instructions on how to recover this vital information.

Hi!

I found from internet that updates should be stored in: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Mozilla Firefox\updates

But I dont even have that folder but somehow firefox tells me to restart to install updates.

Since internet documentation seems to be outdated on this aspect I decided to ask here.

Ok, there might exist a solution to this, but I am not able to find it or even a better way to explain it.

So, the main issue is, I have a lots of tabs open on my Firefox (Linux) and after some minutes of inactivity, Firefox automatically deletes all the data associated with that site.

So, when I switch back to that site, it reloads.

The main issue is with Whatsapp Web, as I don't get notification if I don't switch to the tab every now and then.

There might be a option for this behavior in the settings but I can't seem to find it.

Please help me find a solution.

Thanks

Sorry for asking a question so many others have asked but I am having trouble completing fixes that were suggested.

I do project research with over 25+ websites and can't do without my p/words especially, but also my bookmarks. I just reset my PC Win 10 and as you know this operation cleans out everything but OEM apps.

So, I downloaded latest ver. FF but my passwords and bookmarks aren't there which I actually anticipated.

I read many posts and replie s on how to restore from old Firefox date filesbut I just don't get it (about:support, Help > troubleshooting information). I located my old FF profile easily. OK fine, now what? Instructions said to copy profile but to where? And how, exactly? Do I paste it somewhere?

Another "Reply" said to locate "Local Directory, no root", then click Paste and restart Firefox. Where is Local Directory? Is there a FF restart button?

Frustrated.

Thanks.

The photos page in OneDrive is having trouble loading most of the time. The page has the OneDrive header, and the section where the photos should show up is simply blank. Screenshot attached.

This is working fine on Google Chrome, but I would prefer not to use chrome for privacy reasons.

Can anyone help me with this?

Hi to All.

Text encoding is no longer available in the menu panel. - Kodowanie tekstu nie jest już dostępne w panelu menu

Unfortunately, there are still pages where it is necessary for the diacritical marks of a given language to display correctly Niestety ciągle występują strony gdzie to jest potrzebne, żeby znaki diaktryczne danego języka wyświetlały się prawidłowo

The problem is : Some of the time FF just records 0 bytes file and says nothing. I suspect that FF inspect the URL of the links and discard ( perhaps for security reason ) ones that do not begin with HTTP.

The bypass is : One has to copy the link and insert in in the new page of FF.

The solution would be to change FF code.

Thank you.
