I'm an author/writer of cozy mystery/suspense/crime/thrillers and adventure short stories. I do a LOT of research and participate in online forums for background for my books and to build my brand. I have been using Mozilla Firefox for almost 20 years and I love it. But I may be forced to change because of the two serious problems I'm having. Explanations below:

  1. 1. There are certain regular sites I go to that require me to choose images to verify I'm not a robot or click on "I'm not a Robot" in reCaptcha. I can't because those images and/or the box for eCaptcha don't show up. They're just not there. I have to sign out and sign into Microsoft Edge which I absolutely hate. If I have to change, it will probably be Google Chrome.
  1. 2. Also, many of the sites I use regularly don't show up anymore. All I can see is text down the left side. None of the images are there and I can't tell where to click to go to different pages.

This has all been going on for months. I had hoped your updates would fix this, but they haven't. I don't want to change browsers, but I may have to because I MUST be able to verify my identity and be able to see some important sites I use regularly to post comments, etc.

I hope you can help me. I'm 85 and have absolutely no technological computer knowledge so please don't send me a lot codes because I would have no idea what to do with them. I pray this can be fixed.

I have a Dell PC and am using Windows 7, 32-bit.

Thank you, Gail S. Kibby White.

I've been signing in to Facebook using Firefox for years. This week, the message "The email you’ve entered doesn’t match any account. Sign up for an account." appeared when I tried to sign in. I have not changed the email. The email works to sign in using Opera. I have tried to troubleshoot by using Firefox Safe Mode, and Refreshing Firefox. No change. I have Googled and searched Firefox help for this problem, no luck. It worked fine in Firefox on Wednesday, then later that evening, started getting that message. What in the world? Is Facebook discouraging using Firefox? Thanks.

I have looked at so much that I don't know where else to look to be able to get back to using DABL. The DABL site used to work so well.

Is Babylon dictionary harmful for PC ? I heard or read somewhere it is unwanted program. Just I scan my PC using Adware it removes it soon, though I add exception. After each time I install the dictionary, I go to programs and features and uninstall its toolbar. Also, this process does not limit the function of Adware to allow Babylon works. I see we cannot neglect this software of translation as much as we are translators. It works easily on computer and can translate document just to click right shift + ctri So, for the mentioned reason it is very much helpful to us. But how to get rid off its ventures ? Thank you in advance

Context: after upgrading FF I started using the new version the day after. I always set FF to open with the tabs I was using before exiting. When I opened FF I got a bunch of youtube offline notifications as usual. I didn't get twitter offline notifications but this happens from time to time. Eventually notifications from yt stopped but I only noticed it many hours later when I tried to Push notifications on twitter https://twitter.com/settings/push_notifications I got this as a result: Unsupported browser It looks like your browser doesn’t support push notifications. Important most likely: when I was working during the afternoon FF started lagging I got impatient so I ended the heaviest FF process with Windows Task Manager. I could continue working normally. Trying to find a fix on google I ended up here: about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox#serviceworkers

The YT service worker always shows:

  • Stopped - Not listening for fetch events

But the twitter service worker shows Stopped (if twitter isn't open yet) and 'running' if it is open. However it always shows no matter if it's running or not: Listening for fetch events

In Debugging - runtime Youtube Service worker I clicked: 'Start' (it showed running instead of stopped)+ 'Push'

Tons of offline yt notifications popped up at the right corner of the screen as usual, I did notice though that they were offline, they weren't happening at that moment. After like a minute again showed the same: * Stopped - Not listening for fetch events

For twitter Service Worker it showed it was running so I clicked 'Push' instead of tons of offline notifications from people I follow and followers I got only one notification pop at the bottom from twitter itself saying: New notification, I clicked it and it took me to twitter notifications where all of them are. I tried pushing notifications on here: https://twitter.com/settings/push_notifications but again: Unsupported browser - It looks like your browser doesn’t support push notifications. The Service Worker keeps saying: Listening for fetch events

Is there anything I can do to make it work all the time as it used to? What about doing a FF restore to some days ago? In the past doing that sorta restore helped but with a very different issue. However could it work? Any other fixes that I should try?

The image attached shows a Service Worker for spotify but I never allowed a notification from it, that I can remember? If I did, I never got any.

Hi. When (re)opening a number of bookmarks, e.g. from MySessions v2020.7.0 or OneTab v1.29, just recently, not before, it opens them in reverse order. Is there a way to adjust/fix/set that list top becomes left most and list bottom right most in the horizontal list of tabs? I am sure it is not those two extensions, since it worked before. Would be great if FF had a feature to reverse all tabs t1, t2, t3...t97, t98, t99 to reverse order t99, t98, t97...t3, t2, t1. How can this be done with existing FF, tools or extensions? Or is there a setting in about:config that would allow correct/reversed (re)opening order? Thank you!
