I play Flash games on Kongregate every now and then, but - for whatever reason - Firefox 64 blocks them from saving.

They load OK but something (which must be a new setting that Firefox 64 added) is blocking them from saving new data, both automatically and when I manually click 'save' on games with this option. Nothing is writing to the Appdata folder where the game data is stored (stored as .sol files).

Never had the problem before, and everything works again if I revert to 63.0.3. Any ideas what could be causing it?

Many thanks in advance.

Firefox user of old but got sucked into using Chrome for a year or so. Trying to correct my ways and have installed Firefox on Win 7. Installed OK and starts/loads, but will not open any pages, external or internal html files. Tried safe mode, tried hardware acceleration tip, etc but nothing has changed the unresponsiveness. Really don't want to give up and turn my back, but there is only so much time....

Hi,

I am not sure how to ask this question so maybe telling you the history of what I did will help.

In one of the previous Quantum versions I wanted a different look for tabs and general layout. At that time I found a web page that covered what I was looking for. As I recall, there was some 'text' that I cut and pasted into a folder. That produced the layout you see in the attached screen cap image.

Since the Quantum versions have been updated I would like to remove the layout change previously installed and have the current traditional Firefox layout.

I have searched but am unable to find the original information.

Hopefully someone will be able to help me.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,

this is my second post for today and again it concerns the Web-Console. The first screenshot is taken from the official Mozilla doku (doku_ff.jpg) and the second is what I see whwn opening the console on my page.

Contrary to the official docu the console does not show the concerned lines of the javascript errors - only the number it happens. ( line two screenshot - underlined red).

How can I find out what lines are concerned?

Very glad for help and wishing the best for the coming new year.

So...dropdown below 'PDF' that is attached to email shows: Preview, PDF, Onedrive-if i click on pdf, opens fine, if i click on Onedrive, goes to Onedrive and opens fine, but when I click on 'preview' just a blank page-the Preview won't open. Im sure this is a Firefox problem as in Safari of Google Chrome the 'preview' , if clicked, opens fine.

When I first start FF Quantum from the Unity Dash in Ubuntu 18.04, I select "Open a New Private Window". But when the new private window opens the Content Blocking switch is always off. If I open a new tab the content blocking switch will show as on. So, is content blocking on or off after I start the first Private Window?

Attempting to access a portal from a secure trusted site and up popped a page with persistent beeping having a warning that a problem existed (!) and to call an 866-xxx-xxxx number for help. Called Apple tech who helped clear the annoying sound, checked everything conceivable, cleared deep caches in library along with histories and website data. Ran a Malwarebytes scan which was clean. After all that, opened firefox again - same problem. Apple tech then stated he'd done all he could and the problem was likely on firefox's end. After we hung up, I did a clean uninstall and reinstall of firefox, opened the browser, and there it was again! Did a force quit and haven't used firefox since. If anyone has knowledge of this problem, please use as much English as possible, as clearly I barely know what I'm talking about... also, I temporarily have no current access to the computer in question.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2108 using Safe Money. Mozilla Firefox Browser version 64.0 (64-bit) in Private Window. Windows 7, Password Manager is not used.

I inadvertently saved a password in Safe Money, I don't know how this happened.

When I opened a URL in Safe Money, a small Firefox window popped up. It would say "Would you like Firefox to save this password for URL?" Save? or Don't Save? are to be selected. If I did not select either, the small Firefox window kept popping up every time I opened the URL. Because of my error, I do not have the pop-up anymore but I have a saved password appearing as masked characters. If I delete the saved password from the box and refresh, I can force the small Firefox window to pop up. The small Firefox window will show a blank user-ID and a password in masked characters.

I tried to remove the URL from Safe Money, then disable Safe Money, then enable Safe Money and add the URL back. Saved password is still there. I think I know how to change the settings in Firefox and delete passwords, cookies, etc. but none are being saved. I don't see any other options I can play with.

I uninstalled Firefox and deleted the folder for it in the C: drive to remove any trace of old browser settings. I installed Firefox version 64.0 but was not able to launch a protected browser. Safe Money has options to play with but none of them worked. I undid version 64.0 and installed version 49.0 that I had the EXE file for. I was now able to launch a protected browser in Safe Money. I upgraded Firefox though the Help menu and so it upgraded to version 56.0. I then upgraded to version 64.0 and I was again able to launch a protected browser in Safe Money. I added the URL to Safe Money, opened the website and the saved password is STILL there.

p I have taken great pains to opt out of all these privacy sharing websites such as mylife.com. However, if I type my name in the search bar in my Firefox browser immediately on the top an non-existent listing for me from mylife .com appears with my name, age and location prominently displayed for all to see. Please remove this. There is no page. I want my identity protected and my privacy restored.

I am very upset with Firefox when C Google was able to do this easily with information I provided on a dedicated page.

On all websites displayed in Firefox, all colors and images seem a lot more faded than on literally any other place on my computer. I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox and the difference is very obvious, especially for saturated colors.

The image shows the issue very clearly. The true colors are depicted above and the faded colors are depicted below. I can’t seem to get the image to upload through the site, so here’s an external link: https://i.imgur.com/YWz9i3j.png
