Firefox 59.0.2 (64-bit) When clicking the 'Page actions' icon in the search field, and selecting 'Email Link...' a Thunderbird email Write box opens as normal. In the past, these email Write boxes had the title of the Firefox page being emailed in the Subject line, and nothing else. Since upgrading to Firefox Quantum, the Subject line now contains the title and the full URL of the Firefox page being emailed. Is there any way to keep Firefox from adding the full URL of the the page being emailed to Thunderbird?

I cannot start another profile from "about:profiles" - always only opens the same profile that is open already.

I have now read a bit about this on Mozilla. It seems they do not like profiles as a principle. So, it seems I do have to change to Chrome.

My use of profiles: Yes, I do a bit of private web development but I that is not the main reason I use profiles.

I separate my work areas by browser profiles each with multiple tabs open. Having all those tabs in one browser window would make it very chaotic. One window has social media, another has private surfing websites, another company info sites... and so on

Boas a caixa de verificação para activar/desactivar a opção de memorizar novos usernames e passwords não funciona. Está lá, desactivada, mas não dá para reactivar (já reiniciei o firefox em modo de segurança e nada). Estou a pensar fazer uma reinstalação do firefox (apagando tudo) mas tenho receio de perder algumas credenciais (outras tenho guardadas). O método apresentado pela Mozilla para fazer o backup do perfil baseia-se num copy-paste mas não percebo como o reactivar após reinstalação, daí o meu receio em reinstalar. Alguém me pode ajudar? Obrigado

Hello, I made a big mistake today and accidentally downloaded a fake firefox update. When I clicked install, it never made it to the download page, and seemed to add itself as an add-on. I freaked out once I realized what I've done, and clicked on the add-on button on the manager tab. Every time the "about:addon" popped up in the search bar, it immediately re-routed to the Google homepage. I'm not able to view or manage my add-ons since I fudged up. I'm running anti-spyware on my computer to make sure nothing actually got downloaded, and it doesn't show anything. I'm not sure if this can happen, but I'm nervous adware has been directly added to the browser because of this add-on download. What do I do?

The screenshot is of the fake firefox update page.

When I click on a link in the Toolbar, it opens in a Sidebar instead of a tab or new window. I've reset the Options & Customize in the Menu, but it's still happening. I want the link to open in a new tab, then go to that tab immediately.

Hi,

You have a link to find out how to use the new screenshot ability in the new firefox on the landing page for ALL users, the link takes you here:

https://blog.mozilla.org/firefox/5-ways-take-screenshots/?sample_rate=0.001&snippet_name=8148#utm_source=desktop-snippet&utm_medium=snippet&utm_campaign=Screenshots5Ways&utm_term=8148&utm_content=REL

BUT that page doesn't actually show you how to take a screen shot!! Quite frustrating for all (I am assuming thousands) users that click the linking wanting to find out this new cool feature.

The correct URI is:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-screenshots

Cheers,

David

I am trying to access a webpage, both from links in mail and from googling.

An example page that I am trying to get to is this:

https://support.illumina.com/downloads/humancoreexome-24-v1-0-product-support-files.html

However, every time I click the link, I get to the desired webpage for a few second, before I get redirected to another page: http://emea.support.illumina.com/?langsel=/no/

I have tried both from google, and from using links in the address field, with same result. I do not have this problem on Safari. Neither do I have the problem on another mac (with probably an older Firefox version).

Why is this? It is extremely frustrating not to be able to get to the webpages I want.

Thanks for any help!

New update today to version 59.0.2 has changed how pastes appear in the favorite tab (visually). Now they're blank and harder to look at. Is it possible to use old colours? If not, WHY? You guys really need to stop with the downgrading. Everytime I update, I regret it. Should just do security updates, nothing else, your program was already great (greater than today) in version 56 (as example).
