Hi, I am visiting a site from my favorites and suddenly I am greeted with a red page urging me that this site has dangerous content and I should leave it? Why is that? There is an option to ignore the risk but I want this red screen disabled and not to see it again. How can I disable it and possibly even delete it from my computer?

In the settings I have unchecked this: Deceptive Content and Dangerous Software Protection Block dangerous and deceptive content

but still get the error. How can I disable this stupid page!

I already upgraded my home's internet speed up to 1Gb. It included a router's change. The fact i, when i do a speed test on Firefox, it does reach only 600 Mb download speed and 100 upload. If i do the same speed test with another browser, i get 900 MB download and 100 Mb upload. So , how do i configure Firefox in order to get same values than Edge and Chrome browsers? I understand it might has to be with some parameters in about:config . Could you give me some light on this? Thanks

Hi all, I believe I remember that this function once was implemented in firefox and I used it regularly. But now I can't find it anymore:

The search results of an internet search (let's say google search results) show up in firefox one after the other. When I move my hand to the mouse and Strg + click I can open selected search results in new tabs. From the keyboard I can only use Tab to navigate from element to element - but not from search result to search result as I want.

Is there a possibility to move quickly from search result to search result? To skip all the not interesting elements? To "tab" through all these links, the maps, the ads takes ages...

Would be great if someone knew the old function in firefox at least.

Hello everyone, I hope this finds you healthy and safe! Thank you in advance for your help, it's much appreciated. I'm configuring a new computer that will replace my current one and while installing Firefox and turning on sync on the new computer I realized I forgot my Firefox account password and have been trying to reset it but I run into a funny issue. I go to the "forgot password" link and add my email address to get the "password reset" email which I do get. When I click on the link in the email, it takes me to the page where I can then enter my new password and then click on the "reset Password" button. I then enter my new password but when I click on the "Reset Password" button I get the error "Unable to deliver email". This is where I'm stuck. I cannot reset the password because it won't go passed the error. I've attached an image of what I get. Thanks again for your help, it's appreciated.

My firefox keeps causing more "Topsites" to go missing and I need a solution. It started as 1 and now it's 3. I have tried searching it on a few different search engines and all I get is unrealated sites and forums as the engines only focus on one word "Blank." It seems to only effect the 64bit versiona and I have no idea how to fix it.

Please help.

I just lost a website I wanted to view because Firefox did a background update and I cannot find an option where Firefox downloads the update, but gives me the choice when to install it. (I don't have the link and get buried by ads when i try to google the website.) EVERY TIME AN UPDATE HAPPENS, IT ALWAYS STRIKES AT THE WORST POSSIBLE MOMENT! (Like when I'm working from home!)

THIS IS MY and I repeat MY computer. I CHOOSE WHERE AND WHEN THINGS HAPPEN. I need to find a way to FORCE FIREFOX TO WAIT UNTIL I AM READY FOR DOING THE UPDATE!!! Automatic installing of updates IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. Downloading the update is fine, but I NEED THE ABILITY TO CHOOSE WHEN IT INSTALLS THE UPDATE!!!

Mozilla, you have NO RIGHTS IN MY COMPUTER, UNLESS I GIVE THEM TO YOU. I've been using Firefox for over a decade (and Thunderbird). I really don't want to change to something new - and forget ever going back to Windows (I DESPISE MICROSOFT!). Don't go the way of Microsoft - remember, IT'S OUR COMPUTER! We need the ability to install ON OUR SCHEDULE AND DON'T TRY TO FORCE US INTO A FALSE STEREOTYPE!

System - adequate hardware running Ubuntu 18.04LTS. Firefox 75.0 64 bit.

I am writing a C program, which needs to start several firefox windows. The problem is: I need to kill them later, so I need the process id. So I started each of them (via fork and exec) with the argument "-new-instance", but get the error "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system." when a firefox process was already running (because there is just one allowed, I guess).

Is there a way to fix this problem, or at least get the pid of the process firefox connects to if i don't start it with "-new-instance"? By the way: It just has to work on one computer, so I can adjust settings etc. System: Arch Linux (Manjaro)

Thanks for your help

New versions of Firefox are very slow for download speeds. 50% of what is available from my provider. Safari is at 100%. Is this from security and filters ?

Recently updated to the latest 2 versions and Firefox is failing download speed wise. Upload speeds are what they should be. I have ran speed tests from multiple sources and all return a similar range - 40-60Mbps. My provider speed is 100Mbps. I have run the same tests with Safari and it is operating at 100% speed wise. Are new security features and / or tracking filters responsible for this slow down ?

Hello, I have a problem with Firefox: buttons aren't working anymore. I can't even close the window with the X button in the upper left corner of the window. If I click on the 3 bars menu button, the cascade menu opens but none of the options seem to work. I can click and write on the address bar but when I press <enter> it does nothing. I tried to drag some links from the desktop too, same result... Every help would be appretiated... Luca.

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

I am getting apparently random redirects to mostly r.svrtrack.com, there has been one other.

I checked my addons and installed programs and can't find anything unexpected.

I have scanned with Malwarebytes and Windows Security and they can't find anything.

I haven't captured a screenshot, will do so next time it happens.
