I am taking a JavaScript (JS) class on Kahn Academy. Once I complete the class, I would like to practice coding on my own computer. . . that is, writing code and being able to test it locally. I'm told that JS is included in the FireFox browser and I've checked and verified that it is enabled in the "about:config" application.

My question is, how do I access the actual JS program. Where is it? How do I access it? What commands do I use to get into the program so that I can start writing, and testing my code?

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

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.

When typing, for example an email in office 365 webmail, approx 1 in 10 characters is missed. This happens in every session and after reboots. It doesn't seem to matter if i am typing slowly or quickly, and it happens in an incognito browser window too. I am certain that key-presses are being sent, they are just not reflected reliably in the browser. There are more than enough resources available for firefox.

Hi, My repaired computer came back today. Under https://accounts.firefox.com/settings/ Connected Services I found an entry <Firefox Mobile 95, Android 10> that signed into my account while the machine was under repair at the Lenovo repair centre. Not trusting it I immediately removed that account. Now I realize that that intruder might have had access to my passwords in Firefox (the machine was completely dead, so no precautions were possible). And therefore to have proof in the future of illegal access I should have made a screendump of the accounts overview. My question: is there a way to retrieve the history of old, but deleted, connected services to my Firefox account? Thx in advance! Ruurd

Well, even the pulldown is not working here. None of the solutions for the garbled text works for me (and now that pulldown option isn't always working) and I am about to permanently change to Safari after years of being a Firefox advocate and user. Without any way to actually ask an actual person about this question/problem and not being a programmer I am exceedingly frustrated and disappointed. I do have to agree with the commenter who said we shouldn't have to go through this just to get a website to display. I've tried several times to upload an image but frankly I feel like just giving up

Suddenly the backgrounds to many Firefox screens - browser, history, settings - changed from white to black. This makes it very difficult for me to read whats on these screens. How do I change them back to white?

The browser screen was black and I did that "about:config" thing and toggled the "browser.proton.enabled" to False which converted the background of the browser to back to white but all the other drop down menus are still black. The bookmark toolbar menu is black, the background of the hamburger menu is black, and the "customize menu" background is black. These areas are now difficult for me to see.

When FF developers start fooling around with colors in the FF browser they need to tread lightly and be aware of all accessibility problems their users may have. Where accessibility is concerned, one size doesn't fit all. Some people have problems with white backgrounds and others, like myself, have problems reading screens with black backgrounds. One simply MUST be aware of sight problems in users.

P.S. I tried uploading photos of the black backgrounds in question but the upload wheel just kept spinning. The photo size was within accepted parameter. Also, I tried to check the box "Email me when someone answers the thread" but that wouldnt work either.

Hello. I've been using Firefox since it fist came out and never had this problem until recently. Many websites I've been visiting for years with Firefox, now won't load and I get the message "Secure connection failed" with the error "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR". There is nothing to click to bypass the error, and I end up having to use a different browser to go to those many websites. These are sites that I trust and use daily for my business. How do I set up a "trusted site" list or otherwise bypass this error? Why is this suddenly an issue? The error page says to "contact the website owners to inform them of this problem", but they couldn't care less. Every one of them has told me to just use a different browser. I don't want to stop using Firefox, but this has become such a constant problem that I'm ready to go elsewhere if you don't have a simple solution. From reading others posts, I see that this has become a big problem, but no easy solutions have been posted. Hope you can help. Thank you!

PS Why is it so difficult to contact someone for Firefox Support?

I own www.batteryseminars.com domain, and it has been setup to permanently forward to: https://plugvolt.com/seminars/

Whenever I enter www.batteryseminars.com in Mozilla browser (Mozilla browser only), it times out with no response or opening of any web page. I have tried this from different computers with different IP addresses, and it does it each time - but again, only when using a Mozilla browser. The domain forwarding works well in Chrome, Edge and Safari browsers.

How can this be fixed? Thanks.

Visiting certain websites like Humblebundle.com or Kickstarter.com causes the tab to crash, seemingly right when it starts loading images. I believe it has something to do with loading images, because with HumbleBundle at least, when going to humblebundle.com/subscription/trove it only crashes once scrolled down, which causes the images on the page to load and then the site to crash, and sites like Kickstarter will text but crash immediately after.

This started happening after getting a new monitor, an ASUS VG27AQ. I have it on 2560x1440 @ 144hz. Changing these settings to match my old monitor does not fix the issue. I have done a clean install of my NVIDEA drivers as well.

I have tried a fresh install, troubleshooting mode, safemode, as well as turning off all extensions, the issue still persists.

Here's a few different crash reports: bp-c62a1e3d-e36e-4177-acbb-654dd0220116 bp-a171e0b6-7c75-4bfc-a6c6-621a30220116 bp-eb9c9fae-f6db-487c-b6a5-964550220116

Hello, Firefox support team!

Could you help me, how can I ultimately, once for all the time, for all the modes restrict to open new windows? The problem is the Firefox browser open new windows if the browser was closed and Im open a link from a different application (cant solve that at all). Or it was opened but somehow for some sites it opens a window instead of tabs. To be honest it can be a big and annoying issue on mac, if me app in full screen mode. And in genereal also. It is something I dont expect from app. I tried all the variants I found or learned in about:config which a connected with windows. It not helped me at all.

I have had these 2 issues that have become recurrent and quite annoying.

The first one is that whenever I try to download from google drive folder using the web site, iy shows as it was about to start and then nothing happens. I then have to go and open a different browser like Opera or Edge to open the Gdrive link and then be able to download. While sometimes, the download is done with no problem, the majority of cases, I find myself having to rely on another browser.

To summarize, I am looking at a file on Google Drive, I click right click to open menu and select "download". I see a notification on the lower left corner of the browser saying that it is scanning the file, then on the same corner, the browser shows a google address as if trying to download and then nothing happens.

The second issue is how Facebook behaves with Firefox.

For several months now, I have found that navigating the Facebook page with Firefox is slow and sometimes it even "hangs" and never finishes to load.

It behaves in a way that is similar to when internet connection is very slow, and thus, pictures don't load, or the news feed stops loading and you are left with some loading content that never ends up loading, as you can see the user name, but not what the person is sharing.

I haven't seen that happen on Edge or Opera.

It feel as if Firefox just gets super slow and stops downloading the content from facebook's page.

I have tried changing settings on Firefox, to no avail.

Are there any solutions to these 2 situations?

Thanks.
