cant update to latest version, administrator has disabled auto updates. But no option to manually update and no option to turn on auto updates either. . So apparently firefox isn't compatible with netflix anymore either due to no update options... It looks like chrome is my only option now.

I've recently noticed that some icons on websites are showing up as "asian" characters. I haven't knowingly changed any settings, gone to any strange sites, nor added any extensions. I've tried clearing the cache and even removed and reinstalled firefox and the few extensions I use, which are the common ones like adaware,etc. Nothing has seemed to work. The icons range from ones that link to facebook, twitter, etc to the search icon. If I inspect the icon it says the font is "MingLiU_HKSCS" I've checked the setting and it says the font is times new roman and even unchecked the box that says "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" but neither seems to work. Thanks for your help

I live with Firefix always in full screen. I Don't like seeing any bars or buttons of any kind.

Befor the latest update, when I moved my mouse to the top of the screen my tabs popped down and in the top right corner was the standard icons for "minimize" "maximize" and "exit".

With the latest update the tabs are there but the 3 buttons have gone.

If I exit full screen (F11) then they are there again, but I dont want to have to exit full screen every time I change between programes which I do every few mins. I'd be popping pages in and out of full screen every few mins!

How do I get the buttons back all the time?

hello all- When Sync job cycles, what is hierarchy determining which component version (Bookmarks, logins, etc) is applied to profiles on other computers?

Two computers, A and B. Bookmark file on A last revised two days ago. Bookmark file on B last revised 60 days ago. I need all profile components on B to match A. Essentially B is updated to A's version.

How does synch determine which version is the 'Master' used to overwrite the versions on other computers?

I saw in another thread that Synch uses latest modification date to set priority. This would seem to be the most logical criterion. But I want to be sure before cycling Sync.

(Spent 10 minutes searching threads before posting this question. There were some oblique references hinting at prioritization, but not an absolute statement describing prioritization.) thanks!

often when on ATT yahoo email page, Firefox will stall and say not responding and then it shuts down any other activity on my pc. When I am able later to open task manager, I see about 20 firefox.exe processes running, so i start ending them all. This is getting annoying, it's probably an ATT probelm due to their stupid ads, but I have tried several times to stop Firefox from running all these processes but you all keep coming back. why so damn many for one window/tab open at a time????

Od co najmniej dwóch aktualizacji ff (zalecanych przez przeglądarkę) zauważyłem że przy korzystaniu z trybu prywatnego i próbie otwarcia nowego okna z nową stroną (gdy jest dostępna aktualizacja przeglądarki) ta nie ładuje się w ogóle (w znaczeniu próbuje niby coś załadować ale nic się nie dzieje - sprawdzone na kilku rozmaitych adresach), ze starych (wcześniej otwartych) można korzystać bez problemu. Pomaga dopiero ponowne uruchomienie liska znaczy aktualizacja i ponowne otwarcie linku w trybie prywatnym/incognito. (nie znalazło mi nic w bazie pomocy o tym - jak gdzieś już jest pytanie (z rozwiązaniem) to poproszę o namiary.

When I would go into Bing, I would go into settings and change from "Moderate" to "Strict"; I would also uncheck "Search Suggestions" so suggestions don't fill in as I type. Then I would click "Save". Until recently, these settings held with no problem. Now after I click "Save" and go back to the main screen in Bing (or come back to Bing after being somewhere else), I'm back to "Moderate" and suggestions fill in as I type. Microsoft claims this is Firefox's issue and needs to be fixed at Firefox's end. Others are posting on Microsoft's answers forums, some also using Firefox, but not all. I love Firefox and I'm not changing to something else, so can you tell me how this Bing issue might be fixed? Thank you.

I have been using using the new "Proton" Interface for a while now and still cannot get used to the ridiculous look.

My Questions: 1) Who designed it? Was it a colaboration between Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles?

2) When changing a design (in such a bad way) why on Earth wouldn't you leave the option to revert to the previous version

3) Why was it changed??? I think this is the most pertinent question. I work in software Development (have done for over 25 years) and it smacks of a department trying to show they are adding value to a product... for the sake of it.

Modern Software Devs have a knack of fixing things that are not broke and redisigning the look of software instead of fixing the bugs in the core of the system.


thanks

On this site: https://www.orange.pl/twojekonto/zaloguj I can't force firefox to remember username (no problem with remembering password on next step). In older Firefox without WebEx there was addon which allowed to manipulate forms to prepare proper autocompletion data. This addon is not supported with WebEx anymore due to lack of proper functions. Instead Firefox Dev Team claims that mechanism built in current Firefox is enough for such tasks and mentioned addons are not needed. Seems it is wrong thinking.

I tried different approaches to save username for mentioned site but without success.

Firefox is constantly removing safe extensions, re-approving them, then removing them again a couple days later. This is very frustrating, and is enough to make me permanently switch to Google Chrome, since they don't do this, and since I have to use that browser when Firefox messes with these extensions. I have been a stalwart Firefox user for years, but Firefox is pushing people like me away with this ridiculous behavior.

The best example is LastPass. Chrome seems to think it's perfectly safe, as it is not removing it. I use it and need it to be available for sites I need passwords for.

Unfortunately, however, Firefox regularly removes this essential extension and others, then, as I say, allows it again a day or two later, then removes it again.

Please, Firefox, figure this out! Otherwise, you're going to lose a lot of users and get a very bad reputation.
