Every time I go to Yahoo.com and try to sign into my mail accounts, I get the Recaptcha. It may ask me to click on all cars in the pictures. When I do that I notice the "Continue" button is superimposed on the pictures of the cars and then when I try to click on the "Continue" button, I get a circle with a diagonal slash mark through it. Yahoo won't help me with this until I pay money. This problem started when their pay for phone tech program started. Please help!

I use Network Monitor to see the URL's that websites are using internally. There's a site which seems to have been written to circumvent this functionality. If I access the site while the Network Monitor is up, the Network Monitor automatically switches to the Debugger. When I switch back to the Network Monitor, the site hangs until I close the Network Monitor and then the site proceeds. It appears that the site has a way of detecting that the Network Monitor is up. Is there a way to make it so the web page cannot detect that the Network Monitor is up and cannot take control of it?

Everytime we start the firefox as XenApp or on the published desktop and surf to a website with flash player activated the firefox browser is crashing. This is also happening on a RDP connection. As a workaround i uninstalled the flash player. But some of our internal websites are using the flash player. Do you know another workaround?

XenApp Windows Server 2012 R2 64 Bit + VDA 7.17 Firefox 61 64Bit + Adobe Flash Player 30 Added reg keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\CtxHook HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\CtxHook

Name: ExcludedImageNames Type: REG_SZ Value: firefox.exe,plugin-container.exe

Flash player = HardwareAcceleration disabled also in firefox

Old problem re-emerging, mysterious crashes out of the blue, error comes up IPC browser error when tabs no longer respond. How can one deal with this without completely closing tabs which one is working ? This is a wretched nuisance. Is this a Win8.1 KB update issue or related to FF ? It is getting a nuisance to reload FF 60.1 when this happens; point to make is program simply isn't stable to use anymore. Can't be the only one suffering from all this.

Page turning machine.

Who is in charge of developing Rube Goldberg devices? Firefox should apply for the Guinness book of world records due to the unneeded complexity of the browser. They would probably lose out to Microsoft though.

colors are always basic and no css buttons are displayed. most sites are unusable. google main page text box is lagging. windows 8.1. i'm not exactly layman and have reinstalled FF 2 times, including deletion of all data folders and registry entries, before i realized the problem is deeper (that IE11 doesn't work neither - note that chrome uses a different engine or setting and works just fine). Either some windows component is bugged, or some setting has been accidentally changed, and i can't find it. Been checking accessibility options (nothing checked), page style (basic), scanning for viruses, doing stupid things advised around the web to no avail. i guess either my FF/IE think i'm on some primitive device (whereas i'm on a desktop pc), or they neglect CSS for some reason.

i had problems posting this question from FF so i'm posting it from chrome - i guess it's useless to try the troubleshooting information button. there is no dependence on FF version. i can try posting again if this info is critical.

Re: Firefox update to my Windows 8.1 Laptop

I've been comfortable on my computer and online for over a decade but with the new FIREFOX I am lost nothing works - I might as well be a new user as it is.

Currently I AM TOTALLY SCREWED and TICKED OFF. STUPIDLY I installed the NEW FIREFOX update to my computer and it has made my computer so screwed up it is unusable even if I use Windows Internet Explorer.

I don't know everything its done but for starters I can't read my hotmail email. It doesn't open.

I cannot type anything, my keyboard is nonresponsive.

It says I have an AdBlocker that is interfering with the AP that is part of the NEW FIREFOX so I can't COPY any text.

This is just the tip of the iceberg I'm sure there is more wrong aka screwed-up its just since I can't "intereact" I don't know yet.

GMAIL I CAN READ, it still opens but even it is changed even using Internet Explorer.

I can't type anything into OUTLOOK SITE HELP because my keyboard doesn't work in Hotmail - it works in GMail but still the functions are totally screwed up. LIKE cut and paste - No longer can I copy or cut part of an earlier email, it sees the whole thing / email as one whole thing to be copied or not.

WHAT KIND OF INTERNET BROWSER "UPDATE" takes over everything on a computer. Firefox has changed how everything works. Is this some kind of APRIL FOOLS HOAX IN NOVEMBER or malware?

How do I access the RESTORE TO AN EARLIER DATE function?

Outlook / Hotmail which I can't read - it just puts a checkmark as "accessed" SILLY ME - I like to be able to actually READ my email.

The only way I'm able to do anything online is because thankfully I have my APPLE Desktop.

I DIDN'T GIVE FIREFOX THE RIGHT TO CHANGE EVERYTHING ON MY COMPUTER including other programs - this is OUTRAGEOUS.

I'm used to using Visual Studio 2015 so I'm used to using an IDE but I can't for the life of me able to type anything. Its like I'm just using a browser instead of using something I can develop web pages with (please don't ask if I'm familiar with VS2015, why don't I just keep using it? It's a sore subject with me.) I probably going to feel like a fool when you tell me how I can access the text editing function, but I can't do any editing. I'm typing this in the 32bit Firefox I've been using for years. instead of the Developer's Edition.

Hi,

bp-d96dc6ad-f9a5-4fac-9482-13df01170828

Happens on YT, FB, Twitter ...

Things I have tried 1. switching from FF 32bit to 64bit 2. disabling HW acceleration 3. updating video drivers 4. safe mode (crash still happens)

Used to work fine and seems to have happened after latest update to FF. though I suspect it is not solely a result of this since I have another PC which is working fine. Since this happens on my work laptop, which is in a semi controlled configuration, the 'well ... check the differences' is not a useful approach since there are way too many of them and I do not have the luxury of going one by one, disabling/unintsalling and seeing if the problem goes away

any help is appreciated.
