It's strange experience with Firefox Quantum for first time. I had started downloading 3.4GB file and after it was about to complete, it got some issue and resume didn't work. I want it to be resumed at any cost. About server : I had downloaded from Google Drive so no doubt about resumable server. (I still have Drive download link as well.)

I respect Firefox team for building such great browser, I just want you guys to look into this matter. It's really important to someone who can't afford "Unlimited Wifi" kindly provide solution to interrupted downloads.

With the hope.

Thanks is advance, awaiting your response.

Hello mozilla team,

I am very glad to write you here. My experience with using firefox is going very great and in fact I am using it since the day I started using internet. Today I feel mozilla has made me too secure that whenever I have to enter any password or personal details I allow mozilla to do it in place of me as it knows through saved logins. But at some certain point I got to know that I can't remember all the details but mozilla can and If I have to put the details to any site through any other browser(happens sometimes when I am restricted) then I am blank or not accurate. So I want to have a file stored on my cloud storage, mobile or computer so that If ever get confused I just open that file and telly the details I am required to put in and by doing this there should be a export option along with import option in the saved login section. That's all I want or any alternate option to fulfill this need. Thanks and have a good day!

I am running Firefox ESR 60.4.0. I have noticed that if I load a page, close the browser, reopen the browser and load the same page, duplicate DNS queries are sent, even at intervals less than the TTL or default cache expiration period. This behavior does not appear to be affected whether or not I change my privacy settings to clear the history when the browser closes. I am trying to understand if this repetition is normal, and where (if anywhere) in the file system the Firefox DNS cache is stored.

Some of well known sites such as "drive.google.com" & "mail.yahoo.com" is resulting in "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue page" in Firefox. They are opening just fine in other browsers.

This issue has cropped up since past week in Firefox. Not sure what is the root cause behind the problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox, but still no change.

I have checked the certificates of those sites, and they are seems to be in order. I mean other browsers are able to open without issue, then why Firefox is not opening them for me?

Please let me know if this issue can be fixed in Firefox.

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

When I close and open Firefox again when I go to a website and for example I go to click on a picture, it doesn't crash but it doesn't respond and after about 30 seconds it works, this happens a lot now and I have reset my firefox but still it keeps doing this and it is quite annoying. After sometime it seems to settle in and it works, but I would rather this not happen because this has never happened before.

FF recently updated and when it restarted my browser window is now not showing my menu toolbar or bookmarks toolbar even though they are checked to be on. Plus the minimize/maximize buttons are overlapping my tabs at the top. It seems I'm in some different sized view or something that I cannot figure out how to get out of. I am not in "full screen" view (already tried F11 to be sure). And I've tried dragging the sides out but that doesn't fix the top min/max button issue where it overlaps and my toolbars AND my MENU bar still do not show up. I've gone into customize and removed and then re-added the "bookmarks menu" but it only shows up next to the other icons, not in the normal "toolbar" format with my folders, etc. I can view my bookmark toolbar in the SIDEBARS but again it's just the top of my screen that's messed up and I know it has something to do with my min/maximize buttons being overlapped with tabs but can't get out of it.

I've put a screenshot below to show you what I mean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I open Firefix, there is a white band (sometimes blue) at top of screen that hides the navigation bar. I cannot take any action except perform one search as I cannot click on the invisible back arrow, bookmarks, shrink or close the screen. I have to close the browser by right click on Firefox icon in tray and click on close.

Because of extensive research I accomplish, I do not clear my history.

One of the useful inclusions of Opera, Chrome, et al. is sorting one's browsing history by date and time. When one selects "ALL," not only are page visits grouped by date, the time of the visit is included as well. This is especially helpful when I know the approximate date or time of a page visit as it allows me to focus on a specific time period. Similarly, if I do a general history search, Opera at least gives me the date of all of the returns. Again, this is most helpful if I wish to limit my search to a particular time period.

Firefox does none of this. Yes I can view today, yesterday, this month, last month, etc. on the home page but no further sorting is possible. For example, in December 2017, I have more than 2000 site visits. I remember that, a couple of weeks ago, I visited a site that discussed - whatever - but I don't remember the site name. Where in those 2000+ entries is a couple of weeks ago? I also remember that I visited that site close to the end of the day. Where in those 2000+ entries are those near the end of the day? You get the point.

Surely Firefox could be written to include date/time columns - yes?

I installed the Anti-virus program AVG not too long ago. When I open up Firefox (I have the default homepage, the one with a search bar under the Firefox symbol) and search with the search bar, It uses AVG Secure Search. I would like it to search with Google. I tried installing and then uninstalling AVG Secure Search, that didn't work. I even tried uninstalling AVG itself, but when I clicked uninstall nothing happens. But I'd like to solve my searching problem first. Please help me!
