When my Webroot comes back with its scan report it always says that "an active process has a possible handle leak" and "an active process has a possible memory leak". What's that all about? I am not a techie, so please explain. It doesn't sound very reassuring, does it?

Evert time I open an enclosure or a link in an e-mail, Foxfire automatically sends it to a download rather than letting me view it. This is extremely annoying. I understand that this procedure may be necessary for e-mails from folks I don't know, and I could opt out for this option. But I should be able to make that determination and particularly with e-mail from people I know. i used to get a notice that asked me if I wanted to download the item, but that never happens any more. How can I fix this to operate as it used to? Thanks for the help. Bill

Using firefox the image loading on manganelo fails consistently with new clean profiles on multiple devices, OS:s (even on phone), with different IP:s, while chrome always works.

Spoofing the user agent doesn't fix the issue.

Is there any way to fix this or is Firefox outright banned by the webmaster?

I think Firefox has blocked my access to my hotmail account.

When I put this into my URL: outlook.live.com

it goes to main page - OK

But when I put this into my URL: outlook.live.com/mail

I get a blank screen . . . and the security icon to the near left of the padlock on browser does not have an option to unblock my mail.

I find no help at hotmail/msn. But my daughter used her phone and got into my mail there - so I think it might be my security setting on Firefox.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hello; There has many issues with Twitter on Firefox. i) Sometimes it simply refuses to run; ii) Sometimes it takes very long minutes to load if at all; ii) Sometimes it quits working after a while and I need to stop Firefox and restart or even run it in Edge before being able to run it again on Firefox. Twitter is the only program that does that, as far as I can tell. Thanks for your help. Frenchy

Last night, I noticed that the usual Dock icon for Firefox developer Edition had changed from Blue Fox to what looked like the App Store brush/pencil triangle. I restarted but it persisted. Removed the application and re-downloaded and re-installed, but same issue. I then noticed that all the Tools -> Web Developer tools had gone from the menu. Likewise, doing Firefox -> About inserted 'about:preferences' in the search bar, but nothing else happened. Tried launching the settings from the right side hamburger menu, again nothing happened.

Read around a bit, and deleted one of two profiles from ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/..., then tried re-install and restart the Developer Edition, but that complained that a profile was missing. Restored the profile I deleted, but same problem as before.

I'm stumped. Can anyone help with this one please? I'm on Mac, latest version of Mojave.

Thanks

Hi I have had my firefox setup so that it didn't show the urls drop down with sites I last visited so people didn't see what I looked at so I could be private. Yet this "Top Sites" checkbox was added recently and caused my url bar to show past sites visited. I find this a privacy violation.

I need the browser text to be larger both on Firefox homepage as well as on websites my search brings up. iPhone has controls that work on it’s own sites and also many sites I click on. Does Firefox have anything similar?

As another example, the text I’m typing here is barely legible for me.

I’m not blind or near-blind. I’m just an average middle-aged person, who started having eyesight problems magically appear at 40.
