I belong to a teacher's union and the state website is suddenly blocked in all my browsers. I am clueless as to how to fix this. It makes no sense to me as I changed nothing except to update Firefox browser and Windows. See the site is not blocked anywhere in the options. Message I get is: "Access closed Site psea.org is blocked, because it belongs to blocked categories: Parked Domains If you think that site should not be blocked please send a message to network administrator

Can anyone help me?

I'm running Firefox 84.0.2 and Dashlane 6.2051.2. Each time I exit and launch Firefox I must re-enter my Dashlane Master Password. Checking the box to "Keep Me Logged In for 14 Days" is not working. I have the same problem with both the new Web based Dashlane extension and the older Desktop Windows based extension. I do not have this problem with Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer. Not sure if this is a Dashlane or Firefox problem....

We all have done it, said ok to taking a survey, right? Well this is bull. No site survey should be able to in bed itself in a startup session, ever. So, how do we go in and remove just that one site who has taken control of my startup. Closing it should be the end of it but no. These are not adware, reset is not the answer, too much work to do a reset. We should have a list of sites that are in the session restore so we can remove some misbehaving ones.

Recently it happened every time I tried to download multiple media on a page. On Firefox "Page Info > Media", I selected a batch of media files, say pictures in .jpg format and clicked "Save As". I was prompted for file folder. After selecting the folder, the batch of media files were not downloaded to the folder. As I exited Firefox, I was prompted whether to stop the downloading. Weeks ago, the selected batch of files would be downloaded immediately as I clicked "Save As". (Environment = Firebox 84.0.2 (64 bites) on Windows 10)

I have refreshed my Firefox, because it was slow.

In the description was written: Firefox will save these items:

   Bookmarks
   Browsing and download history
   Passwords
   Cookies
   Web form auto-fill information
   Personal dictionary 

Ok. It's fine. But after refreshing the Firefox how can I restore these elements?

Please send me a step by step instruction, without referring the webpage, because I have read it and it is not clear for me.

Where is my older profile? Where is my new profile? How can I move the elements from the older profile to the new profile?

Thanks a lot: Mihaly

Hi I've got some top sites pinned to my homepage, but for some reason a decent amount of the icons won't appear, even if I change the custom image url that they're linking to. Is there any way to fix this, I'm a very visual person so having icons makes it much easier to browse

(BTW I've experimented waiting hours for them to show up, no dice)

I find that images generally show on webpages such as the front page of a news site. However, when I click into a specific article, the image which is usually near the start of an article in a lot of cases does not show (so it's not a "always never shown" situation); it's as if it's been removed from the webpage syntax i.e. there's no white space section showing something is missing. One example (of many I could include!) is https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/phonics-revolution-the-new-sound-of-reading-in-the-nations-schools/7A5UVZ55NAOJEQACLKELCNEU6U/ I verified there are images there by restarting Firefox with Add-ons disabled (which starts Firefox in Safe Mode), and also by opening in another browser. So I went thru and disabled *all* add-ons and restarted Firefox. Images still don't show! These missing images only show when I run Firefox in Safe Mode.

In the back of my mind, there is/used-to-be an option to limit the size of images on a page(?) but I can't find any option now. I have also refreshed Firefox (a number of times; including a total de-install, reboot, re-install) but the problem remains. .. What am I missing? I'd like to be able to see these images.

Thanks.

Hi I know I have asked this before, but it is still something I want to do. I want to prevent Firefox from automatically updating itself. I know there is a box for this in options but this doesn't prevent automatic updates: a known issue. I have tried all manner of about: config settings registry edits etc. but I still cannot prevent Firefox from updating. As Firefox apparently cannot update without removing all my settings addins etc. it becomes more and more like I am having to hold its hand each and every time. Gone are the days when software worked for you, now you have to sist back and continually waste time restoring settings and addins: but only if Firefox decides they remain of use, whether I want them or not. I then have to either start from scratch by manually reinstalling them, or find another as Firefox no longer lists them. I find this "we know better than you " attitude is unnacceptable. Does anyone else share my thoughts that software should do what the end user wants it to and not what the provider wants?

I usually watch YouTube video's at 1.25x speed, and I noticed recently that it seem to make some audio distorted. So far I've only noticed it on lower notes, but it causes to sound a bit distorted and warbled.

I noticed it on this video: https://youtu.be/IubSudelVmw?t=429 at the tagged time, and also on a channel called The 8-bit Guy on his intro theme. https://youtu.be/d3NIe1jTZMc

Again, this is all at 1.25x speed (or faster), and this only seems to happen in firefox. I made sure to check and see if it was my speakers, which it isn't because I can also hear the distortion through headphones.

I'm not sure there's much to be done to correct the issue, but I thought I'd post about this in hopes it might get checked in a future update.

How is this still a thing? Chrome can open any PDF file correctly. Any PDF file I open in Firefox shows the text as blank spaces, and I get the message "This pdf document might not be displayed correctly". Why? Why do I, with Firefox, need a 3rd party PDF reader? I shouldn't have to. Even Microsoft Edge gets this right.

Back to Chrome, I guess...

I was away from my Windows 10 computer and when I came back Firefox was gone and replaced by a notice that it had crashed and would need to restart. Restart could not proceed because Firefox was still running. I went to the Task Manager to end the Firefox process but the Task Manager was not able to stop it. I had to reboot the computer to end Firefox. You know a crash is real bad when the OS can't even terminate it. Just wanted to see if someone could pass this along to the developers as the feedback page does not appear to be working. Thanks

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) Windows Home 10 20H2

I have about 700+ bookmarks, which I like to access from the Bookmarks sidebar. There are of course even more items in my browsing history. My issue is, that Firefox reacts rather "extremely" to scrolling on the touchpad. Even when I two-finger-drag "very very slowly", multiple items just "fly by" at bewildering speed. It's impossible for me to perform a precise scroll action.

It not only affects the sidebars that but also the "Library" window (both left and right lists). Strangely, the actual webpages scroll normally. Text area fields on web forms with many lines of text also scroll precisely.

In about:config, all scroll- and mouse-wheel-related settings are set to default values. I also tried with a completely new profile (after importing the bookmarks). That also didn't help.

I want to use Google as my search engine. When I go to Google and type my search keywords into the bar, I get themessage that says, "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." The URL in the search bar is, "https://search-land.com/?pubid=30105&tid=1015&sid=10052&q=firefox.com&sig=2" If I allow, I end up with responses from Yahoo. If I do not allow the redirect, I end up with a blank screen.

I HATE Yahoo as a search engine. I have removed it as a search engine in the options for search, but I still end up there. I cannot get to Google. Can anyone help me with this?
