A widget (Ultimate Social Media Icons Plus) no longer displays on my website www.frankentrikes.com in Firefox 71.0 on Mac OS 10.9.5. It works on all other browsers+phones (incl Firefox).

I have already emptied the cache and done the myriad of other things Firefox recommended trying but it has changed nothing.

I noticed that my Facebook feed is also broken in Firefox, but they claim that it is a permanent break and that there is no fix (for firefox 70.0 and up).

I need this particular widget to work. I am running WordPress 4.9.13

Can anyone interpret the error code? Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

On some sites (I think it has something to do possibly with code snippets because these always display incorrectly) Firefox is showing this illegible font as per the screenshot. I've also attached a Chrome screenshot to show how it should be displaying. I have not been able to find a fix online for this. I have done the suggestions of clearing cache, checking font settings etc that I could find in the options, but made no difference. Please could anyone help? It's driving me mad because I can't make out the font at all!

Michael.

Having some trouble with Firefox and I'm at my wits end on how to fix it. Clicking the Firefox icon in Windows 10 (whether that's in the Start menu, the taskbar or the app itself in Program Files) won't launch Firefox. The blue loading spinner appears briefly next to the pointer, then disappears. Sometimes a Firefox process appears in Task Manager then instantly disappears, but sometimes it doesn't. Here's what I've tried so far:

- Restarting - Reinstalling - Deleting my Firefox profile and all Firefox app files - Launching in safe mode by holding shift - Launching in safe mode by adding the "-safe-mode" comment - Running as administrator - Checking it's not being blocked by antivirus - Loading the Firefox profile manager by typing "firefox.exe -P" in the run dialog box. This does the same as trying to load Firefox - nothing happens

I can't think what else to do. It may be a coincidence, but my primary monitor died, I restarted the PC and then Firefox wouldn't work. I can't see how it could be related, but who knows.

Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!

LastPass was installed and running until Firefox automatically upgraded to ver. 71 and now it's been disabled. Even though LastPass is a "recommended" extension, when I try to re-install from Mozilla I get the message "an unexpected error occurred during installation" (see attached file). LP users report the same problem on their site but it's clearly a Firefox 71 problem (LP works fine will all my other browsers).

I'm running Firefox 71.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Professional (1803), and have enabled Strict Enhanced Tracking Protection.

Yet, no matter what website I visit, the shield icon remains grey, i.e., it never turns purple. The details that I see when clicking the icon confirm that Enhanced Tracking Protection is On for this site, but that No trackers known to Firefox were detected on this page.

But, duckduckgo Privacy Essentials readily identifies trackers that it has blocked, e.g., googletagmanager.com.

So, I thought that perhaps DDG Privacy Essentials was interfering with Firefox Enhanced Tracking Protection, so I removed that extension.

Still Enhanced Tracking Protections says that it cannot identify any known trackers, regardless of what site I visit. That can't be accurate. Even at Yahoo.com, it says that no trackers are known to Firefox.

What could be going wrong here?

Thanks!

<enter> key not using URL bar auto-suggestion

When I type a few characters into the url bar, I see a list of completions from sites I've visited before, and the completion from the top match is highlighted in the URL bar. For example, if I type 'ny' into the search bar, I see a list of sites pop up with 'ny' in the url, and the URL bar itself now contains the original 'ny' characters followed by a highlighted string of 'times.com' since that's the site with nt in it that I've visited the most. So far, so good. The problem comes when I press <enter> however. Instead of taking me to the New York Times website as I intended, the browser reacts as if I only typed in ny in the search bar and hit <enter>, and it ignores the auto-suggestions that it just displayed. (In this case, it takes me to ny.com, which is not what I want). How do I get <enter> key presses to go to the completed url? Here is a screen cast showing exactly what I'm talking about: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1L4a_lLG0QRPRU6aKSvoUIa8MOvRwBCHm/view?usp=sharing

Updating to Firefox 71.0 was a catastrophe. I lost all my open tags though RESTORE PREVIOUS SESSION was enabled. I had quite a while, till I figured out how Firefox really does restore previous sessions. The lost tabs though were gone.

But one problem is remaining. I can not restore closed tabs with 71.0. Ctrl+shift+T does not work anymore.

How can I enable it again Or is there a new combination for it
