This happens in Facebook when I try to play a game: "The address wasn’t understood Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (fb-messenger) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context. You might need to install other software to open this address."

Up until the release of 78.0.1, I have been deleting items from the address bar by highlighting the item and then holding the Shift key and tapping Delete. This doesn't work now, much like when it changed from just hitting the Delete key, so what is the process for deleting specific items from the address bar now? The Help pages are no help because they still say to do the Shift+Delete way.

Firefox anticipates and automatically causes words to be placed in my e-mails. This interferes with my thoughts and writing. It is disrupting, disturbing, and offensive.

How can I stop this in my e-mail? Can I turn it off? If not, Firefox please remove this unwanted and intrusive feature from your system or at least give users the option to turn it on or off.

HI,

it's a problem that's been around for years, yet i never got an appropriate answer, so i'm asking here:

The longer i keep Firefox running, the slower my whole system gets and the slower firefox itself gets - up to a point (generally like about 10 hours or so) where everything becomes so slow, i have to manually shut down Firefox via the Task Manager. All that seems to be independent from the fact whether i actually do something in Firefox or not.

So i don't know what Firefox actually does while i'm away that kills my whole system, but i'd really like to know and i appreciate any help!!!

THX in advance

Saving Web pages as PDF - add-ins do not work properly - can we please have a native option like Chrome |?

Have tried a ton of add-ins to be able to save a web page with searchable text as a searchable PDF, complete with the images displayed on the page, and the links shown. So far I have not found a single add-in that creates searchable text from all the (searchable) text that is displayed on the web page, and all the images, and all the links. Some give a pdf output that includes all the text but not all of it is selectable or searchable. Some do give searchable text but do not display the images. I have even tried the option of using several different print to pdf virtual drivers, and all of them behave similarly, with one issue or the other.

This is a basic requirement, and it needs to work. So far, the only thing that works is a chrome=based brpwser using the native save to pdf function. (The pdf print drivers do not work with the chrome browser either - they produce the same problems as using Firefox.) I am flagging this so some kind person on the forum can step up to the mark - for finding or creating something that works. (FF latest). The solution needs to work without any third party servers - just the good ol' browser !

Thanks

Firefox glitching

When I use Firefox, I often have a problem where parts of the page don't load correctly, or stop loading correctly in the middle of me using them. I've turned off all of my extensions that would cause this, so I cannot figure out what the problem is. When I am typing, the line of text I'm on will randomly disappear and then reappear again as I type more. When I use websites with overlays (I click on something and the rest of the page darkens so only a single box is fully visible, for example), sometimes the overlays will become partially transparent for no reason, and then fix themselves. Stuff also just disappears. I have online hardware labs I do for school, and sometimes, the pictures just vanish, and I have to either drag them around the screen to make them reappear, or just wait several moments for them to come back. I've attached some cropped versions of the labs I do, to give you some idea of what glitches I have going on. The first is how the page appears to me, and the second is how the page is supposed to appear.

After updating firefox saturday i was unable to access the internet. I kept getting a window saying, Failed to connect to a windows service. Windows could't connect to the Group Policy Client svc. This problem prevents standard users from signing in. My computer guy told me to un/reinstall firefox. When I did I lost all my bookmarks, toolbars, etc. He restored those and now when I try to login to my Earthlink homepage the address bar shows that it is NOT a secure connection. This happens also on Chrome. E/L said it was a browser problem and to contact Microsoft, which I don't really want to do.

Hello, the solution to restore the drop-down arrow worked fine the first time around, but once Firefox updated again (earlier this week), it removed the drop-down arrow and the fix no longer works. In general, Firefox now feels more like Chrome, which is unfortunate. Not everyone wants a hyper-streamlined experience (e.g. removing the tool bar -- I just learned how to get it back). Users should not have to discover tricks to maintain simple usability features.

Is there a way to restore the drop-down arrow and maintain it?

Thank you!

Dear support and community.

My HD had a meltdown last night and I had to reinstall everything. Luckily I saved my settings to the Mozilla cloud just a few days ago and desperately want to get everything back, if at all possible. I had to put in my email address and use a password and it stated 'saved'.

I can't for the life of me find out where to go to retrieve my settings.. Please help

My apologies for possibly not putting this question in the right category!

Firefox randomly access $MFT (Master File Table) of other HDDs

Hi,

I have couple of hard drives on Windows 8.1 and while I'm using Firefox; "Windows Explorer.exe" randomly access to $MFT (Master File Table) of other internal or external harddrives, which I don't use at that moment.

I used Resource Monitor and SysInternals to see what happens but I only figured out Firefox triggers an access to $MFT of other hard drives.

As I figured out, sometimes when I open a new tab, or, sometimes after reading a long article on a website and when I open a Youtube tab, or, sometimes after some reading when I download an image; Firefox Browser triggers Windows Explorer.exe and it access to $MFT (Master File Table) of other drives. And they make noise, that's why I'm asking.

I checked if it happens with other browsers or programs; I found that this happens with Firefox or Chrome browser. But not while using Microsoft Edge browser or any other programs.

Windows Search Indexing turned off, PageFile turned off. There is not any programs on other drives. There is no background application and no antivirus. There is no Firefox related files (bookmarks etc) in other drives.

Can you please suggest me anything to find what causes/triggers that or suggest me to how to use properly SysInternals or anything else to see why Chrome and Firefox wants to reach other hard drives? (Such as how to setup a filter in Process Monitor / SysInternals or anything else... )

Thanks for any help.
