When I visit the Yahoo website and click on articles to open them, some pictures show-up and others don't. When a picture doesn't show-up, there is a whitish box in its place that has a white wave running through it for a few seconds before turning all white. I did find that if I toggle the Enhanced Protection On and then Off or Off then On the pictures will load in the article. However, having Enhanced Protection always On or always OFF doesn't help. Any ideas on what I can do to get the Yahoo articles pictures to load all of the time without changing the Enhanced protection every time?

Thank you very much for your help!

I have a problem with FireFox and it has been suggested I "refresh" it.

I have been down this road a long time ago and it was a world of hurt for me.

Why?

Well: a - it didn't fix the problem and b - there seems to be little documentation on "how to put things back to the way they were if that doesn't fix the problem".

So I am reluctant to do this as I have a lot of open tabs. From memory it is 47 WINDOWS (sessions?) of FireFox and countless tabs in each of those. I'd say the range is from 1 to...... 40 (at a guess)

Anyway, back to the topic:

I go through the motions. It does/doesn't work.

How do I put things back to normal? (Though yes that means the problem will remain. But if it doesn't work, it would be nice to be at least back to having those tabs I use where they were.)

Upon the last update (v.83), my favourite Flash golf game "World Golf Tour" ceased to work.

The makers of the game have already taken steps to move to a different platform on January 1st ... but the existing Flash version still works perfectly ... until YOU came along!

Your so-called "update" made it impossible to even load World Golf Tour's menu screen - I heard the music, but the graphics were frozen.

I'm no Sherlock - but this problem only occurred when Firefox updated.

It took me ages to downgrade back to v.82.3 - but WGT loaded perfectly when I did it.

Proving that it's YOUR fault! So don't give me this "most problems are caused by other peoples' software" stock answer crap.

I WILL upgrade to the latest version of Firefox on January 1st, not one second before.

Is there any way I can turn off the "Download Firefox Update Reminder" until then?

It's really annoying.

Hi:

I installed a few days ago the latest version of Firefox on my iMac. I am noticing that when I open a new window in Firefox, a tab is opened and it shows Search Pulse. I looked it up and it appears that it is some kind of adware that is dangerous and is hard to remove. I looked up some articles and they all seem to be written by some vendor promoting a product for removal. I am very concerned asking for more problems than what I have as I am not a technical person.

Did anyone encounter this adware and if so what's a trustworthy product to remove it?

I have Norton and the free version of Malwarebytes on my computer. None of these programs caught the installation of this adware.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I tried three different ways, 10 times, to clear the "Cached Web Content" not matter what I do (6.0KB) remains?

Can someone please help me out here? I cleared and cleared, restarted the machine... I cannot get rid of the (6.0K)?

I'm using a 5 day old new MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019), running MacOS Big Sur 11.0.1, using FireFox 83.0 (64-bit)

it's frustrating and I don't want anything stuck in my cache that might be tracking me, following me around.

I closed firefox (all three windows), and when I reopened it, it opened the two background windows... but NOT the main window that had all my tabs and pages and projects. Thanks, Firefox.

I *could* go through my History, and see if I remember WHEN I accessed each tab, and TRY to rebuild it, but that is INSANELY ANNOYING and takes upwards an HOUR.

I am getting sick of the message "A script from the extension...is running on this page" It relates to Adblock Plus which is the extension. I watch a YouTube video and then this message comes up on another YouTube tab I have open and Firefox switches to that tab and ruins my watching the video I was watching.

Is there anyway of disabling the message from ever coming up? I increased the values in dom.max_script_run_time and dom.max_script_run_time_without_important_user_input which was a possible solution I read but that does nothing.

1: Sometimes when middle-clicking a link to open it in another tab, it will open the new tab with the address of the link I clicked, in the background, but not load it at all.

2: Sometimes when clicking a link (to open in the current tab), it does nothing at all, or selecting an option in a dropdown box won't refresh the page with the new information (for example, zandesk dropdown menus for bug reporting for a developer's game will select the item, but not reload the page with the now relevant boxes to fill out- happens everywhere, noticed it there).

3: Pages will stop loading before they've actually finished loading, like Firefox is cancelling the load because "it's taking too long". I have 400kbps, Firefox, I'm in no rush to STOP loading a page that I'm trying to load...

Recently, I had to change my username at my bank's website because somebody was trying a brute force attack on my password. Now, the site still shows my old username, although I've gone to my Saved Logons in Preference and removed all logons for that site except for the correct one. I have to delete the old username from the typing box every time I log in there, after which I can select the correct (and only) saved username/password.

This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.

I clicked on a popup link from Firefox to speed up my browser. Came back to my computer and everything's gone, all my fast links that I had at the top of my screen, like Facebook, Gmail, everything I've saved for quick links over the past 2 years. I want my computer back, just the way I had it. This is a nightmare. I'd much rather my browser run slow (it really wasn't running slow). I tried a system restore, but it didn't restore things the way I had them. Please, what do I do to reverse this nightmare, and please don't ever offer to speed up my browser again.

My firefox tabs has been crashing, and it has been getting far far worse. Practically none of the tab will open longer than 5 milliseconds. Other browsers works perfectly fine. I tried starting it on safe mode, no good. Tried clean reinstalling firefox, no good.

Can anyone help me why firefox is specifically crashing? About a month ago it worked perfectly fine.
