I am new to Firefox. I need speech to text and Text to speech, to run on all sites and all search boxes. And still be secure is the recommended software or add-ons or is it integrated into Firefox. This is one of the main reasons I have not moved from Google Chrome.

In my notebook I have dualboot with Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04, and in Ubuntu Firefox notifications are integrated with the system, but in Windows 10 the notification is a ugly white rectangle. I tried to search how to change, and one site said I have to go to to Settings>System>Notifications & Actions and scroll down to Receber notificações destes remetentes and turn on Firefox, but Firefox don't appear there, as you can see in the screenshot. I'm Brazilian, so my system is in Portuguese.

Firefox latest version 84.0.2 on Win 10 latest updates Dell XPS 13 9380.

Firefox apparently crashes either on sleep or restore from sleep mode, forcing a session restore.

I specifically use a number of websites where forms are filled out in browsing tab. A Session Restore means a reload of that page, losing all my prior work on that page (could be up to an hour's work).

Loving my move from Chrome and starting my journey off the Google train. Firefox is great. But this one is a show stopper for me. Help!

I have installed the recommended extension for Firefox with Kaspersky, but still frustratingly get the black screen with "did not connect, potential security issue" for all websites. Can anyone tell me what is happening and how I can alleviate the problem? I have had to migrate to Safari until this problem can be sorted out. Thank you Chris Carsberg

I cannot open any attachments through AOL using the Firefox browser. The attachment is there but when I try to select it it it does not open with all types of attachments (.doc, .xls, .pdf, .etc..). This only occurs with Firefox and started about a few days ago. IE and Chrome are ok. Using Firefox version is 84.0.2 (64-bit). I had cleared the Cache but no difference.

Please advise.

When downloading a file without saving it it will just disappear after downloading. I can see the downloading process but when i click the blue arrow the message is that the file has been moved or missing. If I choose to save the file there is no problem but I often only want to have a short glance at the document and no interest i sawing the file.

I have made a new installation of Firefox but the problem remains the same. I hav temporarly turned off my Norton security program but that doesn´t help either. This problem was first noticed in late 2020 before that I could download and open the file directly.

I have to say that this has been the most frustrating issue that I have been unable to find any kind of help with.

I am running W7 on this laptop (I do not know more than that), even W10 on my desktop, both with the most updated version of mozilla.

I have removed the adobe flash player, and now I cannot get any videos to play, like on CNN and other various sites. I just get the spinning wheel of nothing. It seems that only you tube is working, barely.

Am I missing something, is this open html5 crap supposed to just take over and everything will be okay.

Maybe someone, somewhere can post a layman's explanation on what is going on. If there are issues, how to fix them. I don't need anymore information telling me how to remove because it is dead. What I need is what is replacing it, how does it work, and where and what can I do to fix issues.

Searching for help here on this subject is just tedious. I get over 3000 replies, or what ever they are called here, but just nothing on an explanation of what is changed and or how it works, more like doesn't work.

What do I need to do in order to be able to watch/play videos online.

Any help would be very, very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

There is an issue with thumbnails not loading on certain webpages. I've tried a lot to solve this problem and found out that it doesn't reproduce in Safe mode.

This doesn't happen when I first visit a web page. Occurs when I browse other pages of the website or refresh multiple times. (But, closing the window and accessing the page again will solve the problem.)

It doesn't print out any special error messages, it just appears to be still loading. (Checking in the console, status code 200 (OK) is not returned and it shows that it is still being requested.)

However, regardless of whether or not the image is actually being loaded, the NS_BINDING_ABORTED error is thrown in the thumbnail image URL.

I've tried a lot of methods like turn off hardware acceleration, switch to the default theme, disable all extensions, turn off AdGuard (on Windows), turn off DNS-over-HTTPS feature, and disable to force HTTPS, but that didn't fix the problem.

Only in safe mode the problem was resolved.

Additionally, there are no problems with Chrome browser. When a problem occurs in the Firefox browser, if I refresh the same page in Chrome, it loads fine. So I guess it's not a network issue.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems I tried to solve the problem by referring to this article, but it did not say what settings were changed other than those described above when using Safe mode.

So I would like to know which settings change when I enable safe mode.

youtube presents errors during loading, leaving the left side panel and the youtube login menu empty, strangely when opening firefox for the first time after turning on the computer it seems to load normally but when browsing or updating the problem is present.

I don't use third-party antivirus, only the one that comes in windows 10. I suspect the firewall and windows defender itself.

I've been like this for two months. I tried updating windows 10, no changes. update firefox, no changes. reset firefox, no changes. disable firefox add-ons, no changes. reinstall firefox, no changes. private window, unchanged.

any ideas?

Hi,

I want to save a website that featured our dog on a page. The website is a help-site for veterinary expense that will probably close the page featuring our animal, as our pet didn't make it. If it matters, the website is Waggle.com.

I used File > Save Page As to open the dialog box with the option to save to the desktop. I note it did so with the extension .html. At the bottom of the dialog box was Format, I choose the default save as Website complete. I tried to open it and saw a instant of the webpage picture. On the bottom left-hand corner several pieces of dialog were running in rapid succession, one of them contained the words "Hand shake", but most were probably computerize gibberish, at least to me. The bottom left hand corner went blank and the entire tab was left blank--empty, the brief picture disappeared. Google didn't offer any help with this.

Can I save this page to view as a memory, or is this essentially gone to a novice like me?

Firefox 84.0.1, OS X 10.13.6, 2009 iMac desktop.

Thanks,

John Roehling
