I've downloaded a couple of add-ons this week that did not do what they claim to do, so I wanted to leave reviews so other users won't waste their time. Except when i got to do so, i am surprised to see that therte is no clear way to write a review for an add-on. I am logged into the add-ons page, i can view the previous reviews for the add-on, but nowhere does it inticate how I can leave a review. Google led me to the Mozilla add-ons wiki which states "You can complete most of the review using the reviewer tools at addons.mozilla.org" except there is no indication to where one can locate these "reviewer tools." Seems a bit funny to me that Mozilla would choose to hide the functionality and make it so difficult to use.

Any help is appreciated.

My firefox tabs has been crashing, and it has been getting far far worse. Practically none of the tab will open longer than 5 milliseconds. Other browsers works perfectly fine. I tried starting it on safe mode, no good. Tried clean reinstalling firefox, no good.

Can anyone help me why firefox is specifically crashing? About a month ago it worked perfectly fine.

I have used the ... MYPOINTS.COM ... website for many years with the FIREFOX browser. It stopped loading a few days ago. I have tried many different things to get the site to load without any success. Any ideas what is going on and how I can get this site to load again?

My guess is some setting has been changed or I need to change a setting to get this site to load.

I am running FIREFOX 90.0.2 (64-bit) on a MAC POWERBOOK laptop

All i get is a hollow white circle (with a red strip) spinning around and the site will no longer load.

see attached picture of the white circle with red strip that spins and the version of FIREFOX I am running.

I set Google as my default search engine. However, when I open Firefox, I see a box that says "Potential Threat Detected". The page is headed with a wifi symbol inside a blue shield and below that is says "Hold On!" We blocked access to http://www.searchbaron.com/v1/hp?aid=26025. This site might compromise your device or contain dangerous content. To avoid these risks, close this window and skip this site. Proceed anyway. The same message is duplicated in 3 other languages. So I open a new tab and close this one and everything works fine. Can anyone tell me what to do to stop getting this? I'm not computer savvy so please be specific. I'm not close to an Apple Store, but can get to one if I have to.

The settings i saved just keep resetting at least once every two weeks, it's so hassle to change it back again to my preferred settings. e.g. Using Google as my default search engine, but after some time, it will reset as "Browser default" and the engine will change to Yahoo; It also happen when using a custom url. Just keep resetting!

Another issue I encounter: When I change the resolution of a video I'm watching on Youtube (from 720p to 1080p or above), it suddenly gets laggy; you can hear the audio from it but the visual itself gets laggy.

Hope you can fix it, Thank You!

Please bring back the option to let the system print dialog be the default. There's no need to fix what's not broken. I dislike the new FireFox dialog. I like and am used to the system print dialog, it works, does what I want, and it should be brought back for consistency with other applications.

I could previously fix this in about:config, but that option is now ignored.

I understand the desire to try something new, but it makes no sense to improve on what already works. And, to remove the about:config option means your imposing your will on me. FireFox never felt like an imposition before, this is like something I'd expect from Apple, not Mozilla.

Please bring back my choice and make it an easy configuration checkbox, no about:config voodoo.

Thanks!

After experiencing some problems (saved tabs being empty, menus gone etc.) I read about restarting into troubleshoot mode ("Help"-"Troubleshoot mode" menu) which solved those problems (I believe "Troubleshoot mode" might be the same as "Refreshing" Firefox, from what I've read -correct me if I'm wrong) . I'm on Firefox 98.0.2 on a Mac.

Following that I quit Firefox and opened it again the normal way which I assume means it went into the normal mode as before, but I realized all my extensions were gone! Reading through some older postings I see they're in a profile named "legacy_BAK.profile", and in addition I have recent Time Machine backups, so any files aren't lost, but I guess the simplest way to fix this is to re-install my extensions -but most extensions (inside the "extensions" folder within the profile folder) only have a cryptic numbered name with and .XPI extension. So how can I find out which extensions I used to have, and better yet -is there a quick way to just install everything back again with a single click (installing it from the legacy profile folder, or just moving something over to the new folder etc.)?

Hi, there! I was able to drag and drop directly from my dropbox to outlook in firefox as of Friday. This morning, I can no longer do that. I'm only trying to attach documents (PDF, Office docs) to email in Outlook, and it still works in other browsers like Safari, jut not on Firefox. I need help getting the option to work again. I am on a MAC 10.13.6 with the latest Firefox updates. I thought it might be my computer but with it working in other browsers, I wanted to see if I could get it fixed here. Thanks!

Good Day, Firstly thank you for maintaing such a awesome browser!! :)

I would lik to add a feature request. Ive googled and searched the get help form and dont seem to find any solution.

When i right click on an email i get the option to copy the email to my clipboard ("Copy email address"). But if i right click on a phone number link i dont get a "Copy Phone Number" option. I have to resort to "Copy link" which copies "tel:000000000". This is very frustrating when i have to copy alot of info from a wordpress order to the courier companies website. I first have to copy the link and paste it in a new tab so that i can then only select and copy the number part.

Can anyone please direct me to a option to enable or a addon to add.

Thank you so much :)

I updated to Firefox 99.0 yesterday, and ever since then, I cannot login to my icloud Mac Mail. I've spent hours on the phone with Apple customer support and they can't fix it. I can login to my Mac Mail via icloud.com when using a browser, but not on my computer itself. I think it's related to the 99.0 update (just based on the timing) but Apple isn't sure. My OS is High Sierra (10.13.6). Has anyone had a similar experience after updating? Any suggestions? Does Mozilla have a customer support number that I can call and talk to someone? I couldn't find a phone number under Contact Us. Thanks for the help!

When newest FF version opens, it cannot see any of the data that is in each of my three older profiles. I've switched to each one and each one appears empty with the new version. Is there some new step to take in this version when switching profiles? How to bring an older version of Firefox and older profiles from Backup to replace what's now unworkable... and regain my important data? Thank you for your timely, much needed help.

To Whom It May Concern:

Hello. I am writing because I have used the blog/search, and the answers do not work. I am trying to ascertain how to:

I. Ensure Javascript is on. (The blog told me to type settings.config directly into the address bar.)

II. Type a web address in and go to it directly rather than having it always search via the preferred search engine (DuckDuckGo). It offers me every option in the Awesome Bar drop down menu (Facebook, Google, Wikipedia, etc.) except going directly to a website. I have already tried turning off the default, "Use the address bar for search and navigation," and switched to "Add searchbar in toolbar." Both still automatically search with DuckDuckGo and do not give any option to go directly to a website. This is incredibly frustrating! I don't want Awesome Bar; I just want an IP bar. What happened to plain old-fashioned Internet browsing, please?

Thank you for advising. I cannot contact Harvard IT about their website requiring Javascript until I ensure that Javascript is enabled.

Pax, Aaron

Hi there,

After a Firefox Refresh, one site I used to access everyday does not accept my user Id/password anymore. The site did not return any warning message like wrong password. It just doesn't go trough when I hit 'enter'.

The same user/pw is still working well in Chrome. I asked for help on the site I could not access, but they have no issues like mine, and his system is regularly on.

I have already cleared all my history, cookies, everything. I have installed Firefox again. Nothing.

Any idea? Thanks

Hi, I don't know exactly what this issue is, but I've attached a screenshot of my issue and I'll try to describe it as best I can. Last night, I was browsing a local news website (Fox 10 Phoenix) and had multiple tabs open from that site and others. When I switched to any of the Fox 10 tabs, a little box would pop-up in the upper-left hand corner and it contained 4 lines of my saved autofill entry data (2 email addresses, phone number, and a username). I had never visited this particular site before, and I didn't notice any boxes that Firefox would've tried to prompt me with autofill.

This is the first and only time I've ever noticed this behavior. It only appeared on the Fox 10 tabs and it happened on all 3 tabs. I could select one of the entries in the box and that also made it disappear, but I couldn't find where it was trying to autofill. Otherwise, it remained on the screen until I would scroll and then it disappeared and would not reappear if I returned to the original position. It did reappear if I changed tabs and came back. It was also the same 4 autofill entries each time.

Is this a Firefox bug or anything else I should be concerned about?

Thanks
