Hello, I have searched the internet for a solution to this, basically what is happening is I'll go about browsing, as you would. then I click on a link, maybe type in the website and it says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at (website) 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." I did notice it's quite random, most websites work but every 1 in 10 I'd say I get this error, then I refresh the page and it loads.

I've changed my DNS, Removed my firewall, and reset my firefox and none of that worked, please help.

youtube video of it in action:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioKKYKnrniQ

basically it just doesn't load then loads when I refresh it.

Hi. So I have installed Firefox Nightly on my Windows laptop. The browser refuses to start up after restarting post update. I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser and even using a whole new profile to eliminate the obvious causes. The behaviour is not predictable. Sometimes it occurs after the first update post installation and sometimes later after 3-4 update cycles but it does happen for certain. If it is of importance, my laptop is locked down by my company's IT admin to prevent software installations. So when I have to install Nightly using the msi, he puts in his password. I am just wondering if that is what is messing with the Mozilla Maintenance Service trying to update the Nightly installation.

I notice that Firefox will download and install updates in the background, and then wait silently for me to restart firefox to get the updates applied.

Can I either: 1) Make it so Firefox automatically forcefully restarts once the patch is applied 2) Make it so Firefox pops up something that offers the user to restart to apply the update.

I would prefer to apply this through policy, or a registry edit if possible.

Thank you

Hi,

I have a problem with random "color blocks" appearing on the screen when using the Windows browser. They never happen with any other program on the computer so it is only an issue with the browser. These color blocks usually disappear when I roll the mouse arrow over the discolored block or reload the page. I have attached an image with an example, you can see the discolored black block when it is supposed to be all grey. I have tried both refreshing and reinstalling the software. The software has worked on this computer before. Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards, Magnus

Undo last move in GMail inside Firefox on Desktop Machine

A;;,

I run Kubuntu 19.04 LTS with FireFox and have several GMail accounts open at once, right now 8, and in the main GMail, I selected "Move to Folder" and typed "X" in the popup, but when it moved it showed "Moving to Y" and I did not catch the "Undo" popup fast enough and being busy, executed several commands before I saw the error.

Going to CMail help almost all the HOWTOs on this subject are form "DROID" and not the desktop, so I'm clueless on how to effect the actual "indo" or do the following:

  1. Look in my FF or GMail history to find that move cmd,
  2. Either "undo" or
  3. Get the list of files in that directory and "select" + "move" to the right directory,

Oh! Gmail definitely lies telling you labels are the same as directories, but a total lie, as choosing a label only marks the file, keeping it in the "inbox" but with a directory a "move to" command actually moves the file out of the inbox into the directory specified.

I hope someone know this answer and I will also post this on the GMail help forum!

Cheers!

Hello,

I am running into something very frustrating and am incredibly annoyed by it. Yesterday, I was browsing and had bookmarked some sites prior to me doing a Firefox update. After the update I had restarted my computer. Fast forward to today and I come to find out that NOTHING from the SEVEN (yes SEVEN!) hours leading up to the update had saved at all in Firefox. No history and no bookmarks from that time period. Oddly enough, my last bookmark shows eight whole days ago so not sure as to the extent of the damage. I have attached some pics showing the huge gap of missing data. It absolutely perplexes me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good day,

I have noticed that my Bookmark in the Bookmarks Toolbar sometimes requires 2 clicks to load Reddit.com. This is the only Toolbar Bookmark to exhibit this behavior. Every other bookmark I have loads the page after a single click of the icon on the Bookmark Toolbar. It appears the browser makes no effort to reach the Reddit site (could be an issue with Reddit.com, but it really appears FireFox just does nothing after the first click).

I first noticed this several months ago (maybe as long as a year ago), but assumed I was just missing the button. I have since ensured I carefully single click directly on the icon, no dragging, yet it still sometimes does not load Reddit after the first click. Very often it requires 2 clicks, as the first was totally non-responsive.

I have many Bookmarks on the Bookmark Toolbar that I use regularly. Reddit is the only one that exhibits this behavior.

How can I correct this behavior?

Thanks for your time, John

The latest outrage ? Firefox is taking up space at the top of my browser with the following : "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..."

I have no #$#$#$@ bookmarks !!! Spent over 30 minutes trying to find out how to turn off this crap. Apparently it can't be done. I'm stuck with the irritating garbage, unless I dump Firefox. Solution found ! Screw Mozilla and Firefox. They've become no better than IE or Chrome. Both of which abuse their users by forcing them to waste time undoing forced "improvements".

Is it possible to create a whitelist for when I deleting cookies and history at once? Recently, the number of sites that log in and authenticate by reading the QR code with a smartphone has increased, so I do not want to whitelist and delete cookie of such sites. It's very annoying to re-authenticate with your smartphone every time. But other than that, I want to delete everything every time I log off.
