Hi,

I have an Acer Chromebook. I just downloaded the Firefox browser so I could use the Stardoll website. It's not really available through Chrome because you need the launcher to play now and it's doens't work with Chrome. I tried to download the launcher with Firefox but when I try to open the download, it just says 'no app found to open exe file.' I also tried to download the Flash add-on and it says the same thing. My laptop is on a Chrome OS. Will I be able to fix this problem?

TIA

I used to like Firefox because it let me set my browser up in an intuitive and comfortable way, and it was able to easily do the things I wanted to do. Then simple and useful features (e.g., tabs under the address bar) were hidden in about:config. Then they were removed completely, and you had to use third-party extensions to restore them (e.g., getting the refresh button on the address bar). Then, the third-party extensions were blocked so that you had to copy and paste third-party code into userChrome.css (e.g., restoring "View Image").

I hate updating Firefox, because it gets worse every time. This browser has turned to absolute garbage, and it just keeps circling the drain. Wasn't Firefox supposed to be the customizable browser? Mozilla seems to have decided that customization needs to be completely wiped out, and features need to be removed for...some reason?

Why is this happening? I shouldn't have to be afraid of the update button, but it's become a "make Firefox even worse" button. My only consolation now is that Mozilla won't have any more major updates for my operating system, so I might be okay for a few months.

Suddenly, I found I could not access Wall St Journal through my public library website using Firefox: I had one-time accessed Wash Post through the same site vs. daily accessing WSJ and after that any access would lead me to WP and not offer WSJ as a choice. Per the public library advice, I switched to Edge and immediately could access WSJ per usual and did not have the problem as with Firefox. Why? I have also had some sites which could not be accessed through Firefox but only through another browser like Edge.

Hi, My computer was having some issues and I thought that I transfer everything to a flash drive to transfer my information to a new computer. Come to find out it didn't transfer over to the flash drive. So everything is lost. My book marks and my saved web sites and passwords to them. I was wondering is there any way that you can help to retrieve them?

We’re having trouble finding that site message. I use No Proxy and have my anti-virus turned off when I get the message. I have tried various other proxy settings but the same thing happens. The thing is that I have to keep refreshing the page until it does actually connect and that can take a good few minutes. Sometimes I have to restart the browser. Why is this happening since the last few updates?

For the past few days, the YouTube website has behaving unusually in Firefox. The volume and play/pause controls don't work. The picture in picture mode does not work. And most importantly, the search bar is broken. Whenever I type something and click the search button or press enter, the value entered disappears and I have to type it all again, only that this process goes on for infinite number of times and so, I can't even search for anything on YouTube.

Hello FF community. I come here for a question, maybe a confirmation (I'm gonna try to be as short as possible ).

I'm using for years infamous Aris-t2 customCSS. I'm about to "jump" from FF v88 on my desktop to V115.0.3esr. I tested everything on my laptop, and set everything on the customCSS so it looks like my actual V88. It's almost identical, but one thing is bugging me: the scrollbar.

Scrollbar on FF115 isn't the same anymore than in V88 as you can see on the screenshot I posted (test scrbr for V115, scrbr2 for V88). The clean one with "3lines grab button" I actually use is less "eye catchy" than the new one. I've made some researches, and apparently, starting FF V97 about 2 years ago, scrollbar has been change to use W10 "flat like" one, and at FF106+, every older code was apparently removed. I tried to changed a few things in about:config, like "widget.non-native-theme.enabled" or multiple commands about scrollbar, nothing changed.

So I just wanted to know if someone could confirm me that the old scroll bar I use is now impossible to get back, or if there's a command I miss that could do the thing.

Thanks, have a nice day ^^

This has happened to me too many times and haven't found a solution to it. When I open Firefox after I have booted up my PC, my browser would either function as normal and everything is kept the same, or would act as if I am new to Firefox and reset my settings and add-ons. I tried re-installing the browser and creating new browser profile, yet those solutions that I've found hasn't worked. Any solutions would be helpful, thanks

(In the image provided, this is what happens at times when opening the browser after turning on my PC)
