Some time ago, my colour scheme in Firefox changed. I spent hours getting it back to what I wanted. Recently, following a PC restart it happened again, now I can't recover my original Theme. Worse, 2 website's, ASDA & Tesco have changed colour to purple making it very difficult for my wife to read. It makes no difference to these websites whichever theme I set. When I open the same websites on Google Chrome, they appear normally. I have used Firefox for many years but now it gets ever more complicated making it more difficult to use. Often, if I need to update anything financial with suppliers, it fails to do so, then I have to switch to Google Chrome which works without any problems.

PS I tried to add images both by word doc. & PDF but clicking the 'Browse' button below could not find them in my explorer, they are there.

Have followed suggestions to clear this issue without success. On Linux Mint how to remove : Policies, 'Active' "DisableAppUpdates", "True" - "Your browser is being managed by some organization." "Updates disabled by some system administrator"/w more issues, being blocked by the same problem from accessing the internet using a NIC cable, am using Wireless. Have been working with this issue from about 0200 this morning 1/19/22. Used one feature, "about:config" but my problem still is there. The issue with 'Policies' is a little more than I can handle. My FFx v96.0.1, Linux Mint Cinnamon v19.3 at this time, best of my memory, @82 Y/Od; Attempted a ScreenShot and could not reduce the size. Just note: "Your browser is being managed by your organization." is displayed top of all pages in "Settings."

Firefox stopped working. I have uninstalled and downloaded numerous times. It still doesn't work. In the new install I get a warning box telling me that vcruntime140_1.dll is not functioning or something. Another item: A box tells me to turn off Firefox -- after I have uninstalled Firefox. The program opens and remains totally inert. I spent hours last night and finally it worked -- wonderful. This morning nothing worked. Uninstall -- install ad nauseum. Nothing works. I am writing you.

Dear Sir,

I have my firefox username and password. However, whenever I try to sign in nowadays, I am asked to enter a verification code that is sent to my email address within five minutes. The email does arrive, but never withing 5 minutes. I have tried it many times on different devices. It may be my email issue. However, I cannot change the email account unless I cannot log it. Since I cannot receive the verification code within 5 minutes, I am unable to change any of my personal details.

Please advise.

Yours sincerely, Tan Ngiap Heng

P.S. It was very difficult gettting to this support page. I was asked to log in and verify before continuing for some of the support pages. But like I mentioned, I am unable to receive the verification code within 5 minutes. So I am thankful for this page.

Hi. A few days ago my browser started misbehaving. On opening, instead of going straight to my home page, i got the following message:

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.

We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

Still not able to restore your session? Sometimes a tab is causing the issue. View previous tabs, remove the checkmark from the tabs you don’t need to recover, and then restore.

I didn't want my last browsing session back. Also, thinking about it, when i close the browser recently, it did just that...close. Without asking me if I wanted to close all the tabs. Presumably the two issues are related.

I have checked against other web browsers and only happens in Mozilla, within the last few weeks. I checked on multiple computers, still having the following problem. I use workspace by go daddy for my online email. I click on compose and the expected window pops to create the email message. When I get to the subject line. every time i use a space bar after typing in a word, the cursor automatically moves to the beginning of the line. This happens each time I type a new word in the subject line. NO other issue in to, cc, bcc, or main message body. This only happens at the end of the subject line. If i type in the middle with characters already on either side, the space bar does not reset.

Go Daddy tech support says it sounds like a browser problem

Thank you, Dr Steve

WHY did I get a screen from Colorway Software when I opened my browser this morning.

I was unable to close my Firefox browser.

I could not use my browser. Why was use of my Firefox blocked?

The messages were to click on a button to use Colorway or to use my original theme.

This looks like a SCAM or TROJAN attack.

WHY DID THIS COME UP??????

Can I trust Firefox to be safe???

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.

Ever since my Firefox application was updated to 96, the application has become unstable. The only way I can load it is be typing Firefox =P on my terminal, and picking a profile. The usual approach produces a response that "Firefox" can't find my profile. After attempting to fix this for two days, my links, logins, bookmarks, are available sometimes or never.

The 96 version was a big mistake and never should have been installed on my computer, which is no connection to an "enterprise".

How can I recover a stable non-enterprise related version of Firefox?

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.
