I have several desktop shortcuts to various frequently used websites. I don't know why more than 3 of the desktop icons keep coming up with the Firefox icon instead of the website's icon; i.e. Yahoo has a purple icon with a large letter Y. Firefox takes over and gives me a Firefox icon of a foxtail. This gets confusing when so many of my desktop icons look the same.

Before these changes, when I opened Firefox, I could pull down a menu and see my bookmarks. I can't now and I can't figure out what to do from looking at the articles. I loved having my bookmarks like that and I don't know where they are. Or how to get them back. I use an iMac OS X 10.11.6

Please help! I'd prefer to remain with Firefox but not if I can't make it work.

How to Disable E10s using Environment Variable MOZ_FORCE_DISABLE_E10S - 1

I need to disable E10s. It causes Firefox 68,0 (32bit) to display a Blank Page when Firefox is closed and I launch a Web Page from my Email Client. I have to have Firefox open first now before clicking on a Website url from the Email Client. This was the same problem I had two or more years ago when E10s was first implemented. I disabled it back then in about:config but Mozilla have disabled that option in Firefox 68. It's stated you can disable E10s using Environment Variable MOZ_FORCE_DISABLE_E10S - 1 but I'm not sure where to use that. I put it in my Windows 10 Environment Variables (System Properties/Environment Variables) but it did not work. I am using Windows 10 32-bit (Both Pro and Home) and the problem exists on all computers since upgrading to Firefox 68.0. I need to disable E10s again.

I work and suddenly must stop because firefox need to update. It is very annoying. Is it really so hard give users control on it? Give me notice and I`ll update when finish my current part of work. And why I cant disable auto-updates in options? It is really bad way. I must think about change browser first time in many years.

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Hello, I have the following issue:

I was watching some videos on youtube when the sound and picture started to stutter. It's like speed was constantly changing from x1 to x0.05 and back again. (It's not speed related) I closed firefox, then instantly got new update and the issue was not solved. It happens on every video but at random time. (The problem might occur at the start or in the middle of the video). What I did so far:

1. Updated my Nvidia Driver: did not helped

2. Checked the video in other browsers: It worked just fine.

3. Changed my Headsets from wireless BT to standard headphones: It did not helped.

4. Looked for similar issues on forums, but provided solutions did nothing.

5. Opened OBS to record the footage. Then it got interesting. It solved the problem. Opened OBS has fixed that issue.

But I don't want to use Firefox with opened OBS so pls help. Thank you for your time :)

SPEC:

i3-8100

16gb ddr4 ram

Nvidia 1050ti

Ok, so before all this started to happen, Firefox had some issue with updating, some file was unable to be opened so I just straight up reinstalled Firefox. But now for some reason Firefox keeps deleting all of my current data as if it was reinstalling over and over, apparently every time I turn on my computer. This includes outright deleting my add-ons, not disabling them.

I remember that I asked to bring all my old Firefox data at the initial reinstall, maybe that has something to do with it?

A folder called "Old Firefox Data" appears however and it seems that by moving all the files in this container into /browser I can get all the data back, but I don't understand why this is happening in the first place or how to stop this strange automatic reinstalling.

I'm not really sure what files I can send to help but if anyone wants some logs or whatever tell me where they are and I'll get them.

Thanks.
