Hello, I like using Firefox & it used to work great with Yahoo mail, until about 6 months ago. I have Mac OS X, 10.6.8. I can use Yahoo mail on Safari, but I want to still use my Yahoo mail on Firefox, where I have all my contacts.

I read some of the Yahoo solutions which are online, but it seems, I have all the correct settings.

Maybe, I have to call Firefox for help.

Thank YOU,

Matthew

Hi there,

I was checking my browsing history and cleaning it up a little bit. I wanted to delete a single Google-hit, but then I accidentally pressed the 'Forget this website-button'. So now all my Google-hits are gone. Is there a possibility I can undo this action?

Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,

Gerrit

When I click on a site such as Facebook the machine icon rolls around and around and then eventually times out. If I try to have more than one window open Firefox will crash. Sometimes it just quits without warning and won't restore my session. Sometimes it won't quit, even when using "force quit", and slows down everything on my computer. I hope you are not slowing things down on purpose to force people to buy new expensive computers.

Got a message today that as of May 1, 2018 USPS.COM will only support current firefox software. I am running an old MAC computer with OSX 10.6.8. I tried to upgrade on you site and it said my MAC is not compatible. Does that mean that after 15 years of firefox I must not switch to Safari? Bummer. Guess us old people are out of luck. It has been a great run. Thanks for the service.

Beginning four days ago, the screen freezes when, having opened an email from a magazine, I click on and try to read an article contained within the email. The screen does not freeze when I go directly from MSN to a news story from the Post or Times or Guardian, only when I'm in my Hotmail account. AND it does not freeze when I access that account using Safari. I know I'm now out of date and unsupported, whatever that means, but I'm told the only solution to that is to relegate this lovely Mac to the scrapheap. Anyway, this new habit of freezing is a specific problem which should have a specific solution short of buying a new computer. Thanks for your help.

I need help to block some unwanted website from opening in a new tab or new background window, but i cant find ant=ywhere in the firefox preferences to input those website address. Also if there is some way to block unwanted ad or hidden website link from opening when I click on a button or play a video button (or anywhere on the page or input fields) from opening that hidden link (be it in the same page or new tab) its really annoying that the backgound or tabs are loading some ads or other unwanted stuff and slow down my main content.

Is there any way to get rid of this problem? I hope there is a solution to share and clear or simple steps to do it...Thanks alots!

Since I bought my iMac in 2013, Firefox's memory useage has been steadily increasing. I'm also aware that successive updates and suggested 'solutions' have failed to solve this problem. Firefox is rapidly becoming unusable for more than a few minutes at a time . . . My OS is a bit long in the tooth (10.6.8), and my version of Firefox is also out of date (48.0.2). But after years of promises to fix this problem, I wonder whether newer versions would be any better?

My new iMac, with High Sierra, arrives in a few days. I'd like to use Firefox, but wonder whether my experience of the past few years will be repeated all over again . . .

In the last month Twitter videos over a few seconds stopped working. Gifs still work and short video clips work. Ive tried every suggestion (Uninstalled all add ons, open in safe mode etc.) in the other threads on the subject. I do not get the "this media cannot be played message" I can actually see the first frame, when I click the video the play big blue play button goes away but nothing happens.
