Pointofmail track emails messages sent in Gmail. They have prevented messages being sent. They do not provide a telephone number to call nor a street address. They have an email address (support@pointofmail.com) but don't respond to anything. The problem arose when I took up a free 30 day trial with their product, after which I did not wish to subscirbe. There is nowhere giving the "no thanks" option. Do you know how I can free myself from Pointofmail when Gmail is used in Firefox? Gmail works OK in other browsers (Thunderbird and Google). Please advise.

Now, if I click on the Downloads button in the Toolbar, a selection with all downloaded files opens. How do I specify/change the application used to open the file if I select it there?

By the way, I think there is some other difference between these two 64-bit Firefoxes. Maybe they are different "languages" or "locales"? At the bottom of the Troubleshooting Information page, there is a section on that. The one you don't want is, I think the U.S. English build. Is the other one a different language/locale?

I did the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and renaming the Mozilla Firefox Folder. All that worked fine. The taskbar icon works.

But, I went out of order. I did the above before I saw your "by the way" message. I am again attaching jpegs from both troubleshooting pages on the Internationalization & Localization section If this is what you are referring to they are both the same.

So, if this is alright I will go back and redo the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and so on. Then delete C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and the desktop icon. Anything else that needs deleting?

Just for grins I am also attaching a jpeg of the Mozilla Firefox program from the Control Panel - Programs_Features page.

Think that's it.

Thanks again and again for all your help, Irv

Quite often I accidentally double click on a video or a picture and Firefox decides it means I want to go to full screen. In my case it never does. I have never wanted to use full screen for anything in a browser and yet several times a month it decides by itself to go full screen. There is after all a reason I am using a computer and not a tablet(multiple windows).

So how do I stop Firefox from ever going to full screen mode regardless of what happens in Windows?

I have tried doing searches both on search engines, extensions and Firefox help site but all results seem to just point at the opposite solutions of always being full screen.

Multiple questions, all somewhat related: 1. Why is it when I click into the address bar, I get a drop down with several options: Search with Google, youtube, Facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter? (see photo). All I want to do is type in an address and go to another site. I shouldn't be blasted with other options.

2. When I start typing in the address bar, the above options go away (thankfully) but then I get a double-repeat drop down of what I'm typing in the address bar. Is this really necessary....that I get what I've typed listed 3 separate times? What I've actually typed in the address bar, then a 2nd time that says "visit" after it, and then another line with the google symbol with what I've typed (again, see photos). Is this really necessary? Why not just the one line I've typed? The other two are useless and seem to indicate I really need confirmation that what I typed is what I meant.

I've already turned off the "use the address bar for search and navigation" option (see photo).

Basically, I want the navigation bar to be used ONLY for navigation. I've got a search bar in the toolbar for searches.

Firefox is blocking my Walmart Grocery site. Screen body is blank, all white. Site starts to open, then it is all erased. Only Firefox is doing this and it started recently. Walmart Grocery is essential to me as I am handicapped and need to order the food on-line. I have no installed extensions. No privacy blockers, so problem is coming from within Firefox recently.

One of my Windows 10 PCs running Firefox is not remembering my setting privacy.resistFingerprinting=false. After each restart if reverts to privacy.resistFingerprinting=true.

Has anyone experienced and solved this problem previously? Which config file is this setting stored in outside of FF?

Firefox is on latest release (v79) but this has been persistant across previous releases as well. Thanks

Bonjour ( from France )

I am submitting to you a problem that only appears with your browser and not with Chrome.

These are the cookies that I have configured on my PC to refuse them, it's my choice!

I accept them occasionally when certain sites I visit ask me to

When I connect to my portal, Orange in this case, I always have this banner (see the print sceen attached) which appears each time either by opening my inbox on each of the messages, or by consulting different subjects presented by the home page.

In vain I answer that I accept or refuse, it works on a few selection clicks then the banner reappears!

It's very very annoying

So I switch to Chrome and I don't have this pb so I conclude that it comes from Firefox!

I am retired from IT with 50 years in the business and I do not understand this bug.

Could you delete this permanent alert, especially since it has only appeared for a very few years.

Of course I could do without Firefox and use Chrome as my default browser, but I prefer Mozilla to Google.

Thank you in advance for your answer and remove this headband that breaks our feet.

Hello Community,

I'm new here ;)

My Question is:

Why didn't the new version 79.0 install itself automatic like the other versions did before? I should download it from the Homepage and install it (maybe deinstall the Browser before). I got v.78.0.2 64bit on a Windows 10 desktop.

Thank you, friendly regards,
