I have LastPass extension on FF v86. It will logout of LP if I close the browser.

However if I leave my PC unattended for >10 minutes LP is supposed to auto log off. I have checked the settings in LP and they are set correctly.

LP still functions as it should when using the Opera browser.

I have reinstalled the LP extension. No change.

Thank you, Parrott_head

When I go to a web page which is a PDF, the web page used to load as a PDF. Now there are 2 tabs, one is blank and has an address which refers to the PDF location, and the other is a PDF saved to the Temp folder (eg. file:///C:/Users/USER/AppData/Local/Temp/some_PDF.pdf)

My preference is: www.some_website/some_PDF.pdf

This is because I save the tabs, and the next time I use Firefox, the temporary PDF is not loaded anymore. As well, I prefer 1 tab instead of 2.

Where is the setting to adjust?

I have used FIREFOX from version 1.0 but now I am stumped. I got hacked or got a virus and FIREFOX went CRAZY popping little windows up, wanting me to "manually update Firefox" but instead, I uninstalled it and now trying to get it back up with a new version 86.0 [64 bit]. Am almost there but hung up on a message where the BOOKMARK BAR is suppose to be that says:

"For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmark bar. "MANAGE BOOKMARKS..."

I can not get my BOOKMARK BAR BACK to display "bookmarks". Just the above message.

I have no idea what it wants as if I press "MANAGE BOOKMARKS"[in the message"], the LIBRARY windows pops up and nothing I can do to get "a bookmark on the "bar" that says "

'For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmark bar". MANAGE BOOKMARKS..'

I assume this is a NEW feature?

I change the settings regarding the colour of used links from the standard pink-ish to red and press ok. The colour doesn't change anyway - not even after restarting the computer. I have a brand new computer with the accompanied Windows 10 at the moment.

Thanx for your help

Just after the most recent FF update I noticed , from time-to-time, that when I print FF is using the FF printer mode instead of the default Adobe Acrobat printer mode. It doesn't happen all the time, but it happens. My options screen still shows Adobe as the default printer mode. So, I don't understand why this is happening. I look forward to anyone's comments. Thanks

I had to refresh my firefox browser. After that on the firefox new tabs page there is no possibility to show recommended articles by pocket any more.

I can not fix it. There is no possibility to switch it on in the options -> home settings.

There is not any checkbox for "recommended articles by pocket" any more.

How can I fix this?

I've been using firefox since it's early release. My PC is set up as a DAW and I have more audio cards and usb connection that routes audio around. Now I can have my main DAW software running on my monitors via ASIO, In windows I set the it to my secondary driver. Now can open firefox, go to youtube and sound from the browser goes there. I can start the DAW and have sounds there. It worked perfectly.

But now suddenly no sound in Firefox. I just starts, no errors or anything, but no sound. I had a look a some of the FAQ's but nothing changed. Reinstall etc. Well short story, Edge works, so now firefox sadly have to go.

Thx for the good work. This is very good browser, but it don't work for me.

I can't tell you how amazingly awesome the MAC extension is! Extremely helpful, especially for those of us who are juggling multiple logins on the same systems. There is one small issue I'm hoping to get help with.

Here is my specific scenario:

I have two different Microsoft DevOps accounts one at dev.azure.com/xyz and another at dev.azure.com/abc - they have two different Microsoft credentials, perfect for the MAC extension.

Except... the "Always Open in Container..." option seems to only be key'd to the domain name. I would love to be able to use more of the URL as you can see in my example. Is there any way to make this happen?

Adblock Plus - is it safe? Why Mozilla doesn't recommended it? I used it in the past some years ago but now I am scary about safety

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter
