You are using a lot of google code and that is scary. The INET database is used and is the only allowed entries to be viewed now., NO THANK YOU MOTHER MAY I. "Black" sites are UNKNOWN sites. That is what BLACK means. Black matter, black energy, black sites. Unknown information. Not the Evil Empire.

10.224.219.149 is a music box that flak format files are stored and plays music. It is controlled mostly through the 'part of the package B2 as a web interface. The unit goes on line and the number it has is a static number. We use those static net numbers to access our unit. The Brennan B2 is sold with the site control. You ignore business needs and ability. The INET is a named list not a number list. It is useful if someone registers a name like https://FireFox.com and if someone enters FireFox they get the traffic not you. Try Utube.com the real one is youtube.com lots of people get trapped. So it is a bad site. Someone stole the lookalike name. Numbers are subnets of other numbers that likely have names. Let me have access or inform me how to get to my site. We need a getaround.

In prior versions of Firefox, the Properties Box used to include a large text "Description" box where I could put login information and other details for that bookmark. Now, in version 62.0, that text box no longer exists. Old bookmarks that I have no longer have this information either.

I used this text box extensively and Firefox was the one browser that had this box. Now it appears to have been removed. Can I get this Description box back? Or do I switch to a different browser?

Thanks, Macbel

Icons replaced with boxes/letters, usual fixes don't work

I have the usual "Icons replaced with boxes or letters" (or tomshardware for example, the Toms Hardware logo is replaced with "t H") but none of the solutions I've found have worked. I've tried Firefox Refresh, clearing cache/cookies (also with CCleaner), Checking gfx.downloadable_fonts.enable, making sure Firefox is set to download custom fonts.

This happened once before, and it just went away. Then it happened again, and a Refresh fixed it for a little bit. Now it's back, stubborn as ever. It's happening on every site that has special icons (e.g., YouTube's like/dislike buttons, though as I was writing this the like/dislike buttons came back). It's also affected profile pictures on Tom's Hardware, not showing them either.

Any help is appreciated. :) (I can't upload images, it just stalls. Let me know if I need to post them through Dropbox or similar)

I thought I was (or still am) having a problem with Windows 10, but one tech said she didn't think so and I don't know if I will get a response. +++++++++++++++ Before I go into great detail here, I'm going to state what happened and see if you had anything similar or it rings a bell.

BSOD - no code given. The error is always KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE.

The past three incidents (last night and twice today) were when I was in outlook.com email and right clicked on a website.

 I can read other email and click other links, but when I click on THIS company, I get the BSOD.   Event viewer simultaneous errors are "Update Windows license and product key tokens failed with 0x80070005."
  No driver errors and I checked Driver Update. No malware or viruses (several scans).  I have an event viewer full of the same information, which I am happy to provide.

I did the May cumulative update on Saturday and subsequently had four BSOD shutdowns. I posted to Microsoft, as I did last month when their CU crashed my computer. I have had BSODs every days since Saturday. I tried reinstalling the updates and it crashed my computer again.

The website that keeps crashing ME is below. The third time that happened, I thought maybe it IS a FF issue, so even though I think it's unlikely, the Team here is fabulous! https://surveys.ipsosinteractive.com/surveys/?pid=S16007269&OSM=1&routerID=&id=1011535826&supplierID=1090&ci=EN-US&pac=1&sifid=160242380102US016&psid=01

(Additionally, I keep getting "Firefox Not Responding" on 46.0.1, so I uninstalled and did a manual install a couple of hours ago. Unfortunately, within a minute of the new install, I had three consecutive "Firefox is not responding" messages. )

Thank you.

Anyone know of a hack that will turn these off? Other threads on the subject have been turned off, with no real solution. Thank you.

Just updated Firefox to Firefox Quantum 57.0. Everything freezes or stalls. For example, right now I can only type a few characters at a time and have to wait. Web pages load fine, but I can't scroll. I have to wait for the cursor to turn from a hand into the arrow. I had not issues before updating. This is driving me insane. I am using Chrome until this gets fixed. PLEASE help!!1

Why, with Firefox 67.0 (64-bit), does Thunderbird 60.7.0 (32-bit) ignore the running Firefox instance and starts, instead, the default profile to handle links?

Hi, all.

On Windows 10 Pro (64-bit), I run Firefox (64-bit) and Thunderbird (32-bit), each with two profiles.

Until this afternoon, when Firefox updated to 67.0, clicking on a link in Thunderbird would open a new tab in the currently running instance of Firefox. If Firefox was not running, it would open "Profile 1."

Now, Thunderbird will only open links in my "Profile 1" Firefox. If I have "Profile 2" running, Thunderbird ignores it and starts a new instance of Firefox using "Profile 1." With both instances running, Thunderbird opens a new tab in the "Profile 1" instance.

I updated to Thunderbird 60.7.0 (32-bit), but it did not change the behaviour. So, this seems to be a Firefox change. Is there a way to go back to having the running Firefox instance handle the external launch of links?

This is the behaviour that I want: clicking on a link, anywhere, will open it in a new tab in the currently running Firefox profile, only opening the default profile if Firefox is not yet running.

Thanks in advance!
