We are working on a library system management software that also provides us a webapp to work. The date is auto-populated in forms in the format yyyy--mm-dd instead of the fact that the computer is setup on mm/dd/yyyy format. Is there a way we can change this or is it something that is embedded in the website. Just a note that the same thing works fine in chrome only.

I am dual booting Windows and Linux on my laptop. Both operating systems have Firefox Developer Addition installed. I have my Firefox profile folder on a partition which both Linux and Windows can read, and both installs of Firefox use that profile. The problem is, whenever I switch operating systems, all my addons get disabled and I have to manually re-enable them.

Why is it doing this, and how can I keep this from happening?

I know I could just use Firefox Sync, but it is so much more convenient to have all my open tabs on both operating systems exactly the same.

Thanks!

Is there a way to send a request or verification ticket to either the company's website or Mozilla for SSL certification? Like, sending a link to DigiCert Inc. or Google Inc. Authority? I want to be sure that my connection to the website is private and secure. Furthermore, if the web page does not provide an SSL certification or verified website approval, would the passwords that I saved through Mozilla Firefox password manager be compromised or will they be secure even visiting a website that has no SSL certificate or verification? Please answer these two questions as soon as possible. Thank you.

Firefox latest update has disabled my webcams because the plugin that enables them is not verified. So I have no way to view my security system unless I set up on another browser. So you must not want Firefox to be used for this type of service. All was well until the latest update was installed.

this has happened previously when updating 32 bit FF, but always cured by reboot. now i am attempting first install of 64bit. i am guessing that it should reside in a separate directory. however, i want it to use the same bookmarks, etc as 32 bit. can a single profile be shared by both versions?

WebRTC is, essentially, spyware. It has extreme privacy and security implications. Yet Mozilla keeps turning the bloody thing back on by default with every update!

Mozilla, it's bad enough you cowed to the DRM people. Let's not cower to the webRTC folks too. Please make the default for Hello to be disabled, or at least honor the about:config settings of previous installations.

I went to this website which claimed that if you share a link to it every time someone clicks you get a point and say 8 clicks could get you a voucher for steam or roblox or something like that, this is a link to the site https://EpicCodes.com/ ?ref=853127 basically my malware states that it is a virus and that i need to pay them 65 dollars to get it fixed, i was wondering if someone at firefox could remove the site and any messages on the internet with the link to it, help remove my virus, and tell the other major browsers, thank you.

Upon opening firefox a few days ago,the entire screen was different with no arrows, buttons, etc to move around so I hard closed it. The next time I tried to open firefox it would not respond. I did a system restore which did not work so I went back to an earlier restore point and now my computer states that it has found an error and needs to reboot which is is stuck in a loop doing over and over. At the bottem it states "critical system error found" and says to look into when the computer comes back up which it never does. What kind of program/virus was unleashed? I probably will have to wipe my hard drive and reinstall Windows and all the other programs I had. I am NOT a happy camper to say the least. What did you do, or what did some hacker of your system do? I am using a friend's computer as if the reinstallation does not work I will need to take it in to be repaired so I cannot take a picture of the blue screen that I get.

I've created a website in php5. During development I used Firefox 46.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04LTS. The session variables are nicely stored en can be read.

Now I'm starting to test on different browsers, my Windows 10 pc with Firefox 46.0.1 doesn't store the session variables. Chrome and Edge do store the session variables on my Windows 10 pc. Also on a win 8.1 pc with Firefox 46.0.1 the session variables are not stored.

Any idea what could be the cause?

What I typically do in a php script:

?>

In order to reload the page, I use javascript. "location.reload();" When commenting that line out and refresh the page, the session variables are available.

Any idea on how to solve this issue?

So I have a few machines that are setup to Sync with each other. I got a new laptop and am using my old one as a Test machine. I added the new one to my Sync setup which worked great. I then uninstalled all the add-ons from the old laptop but forgot to Disconnect it from Sync first. Now it removed all my add-ons from all my Firefoxes. Is there any way to undo that so I don't have to go try to remember what add-ons I had and go find them all again?

I desperately need to find out how to stop the viral insistence when I try to log in to Facebook on Mozilla, ...insistence that this - my - machine is infected with malware and needs to be cleaned by whatever it is the little window offers. A small window comes up when I move to connect to Facebook on Mozilla-Firefox, saying this machine is infected with malware and needs the clean-up done by some business shown in that window. It's a virus. I can get FB on IE on this computer, and on my other computer, and when I ask for it on a Library machine. So, I can connect to it - just not when I use Moz-Fire. thanks.

edited phone# and email from spambots and public as there was no need and nobody on this forum would contact you this way.
