I did not do anything and opening firer fox to get to my mail at inbox in outlook. I also use the calendar provided. Simply I can't get to my calendar it reads an err and try again later. Can you tell me how to get that back as I have a lot of data recorded on it? Thank you.

This happens in Facebook when I try to play a game: "The address wasn’t understood Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (fb-messenger) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context. You might need to install other software to open this address."

Dysfunctional tabes in Firefox

When I create a tab by clicking on a link, normally the tab will open to that link after a small delay. But some tabs just sit there, seemingly dead to the world. I've tried refreshing by hitting enter, or when possible (which it usually isn't) the refresh button on the taskbar, but nothing happens.

If I create a new tab, and cut and paste the link from the old one to the new one, usually the new one will open right away (after the usual delay). Meanwhile, the old one just sits there.

This has happened before (in much earlier versions of Firefox) in a small percentage of cases, but it is now happening with some frequency. I am currently using version 78.0.1 (64-bit).

Firefox usually works great, but starting last night it has been messing with my computer like crazy.

I have a wireless mouse, and a Wacom tablet/pen. Everything has worked fine, but starting last night I had to Restore Down the Firefox window with the Wacom because nothing happens when I try with my mouse. Once the window is has been Restored Down, my mouse freezes, and I have to go into Task Manager with the keyboard to get it to work again. I then have to use my Wacom as a mouse if I want to click something in the taskbar, the mouse for the start menu and any non-Firefox programs, and Firefox will just not work at all. I can't switch/open new tabs, I can't click the address bar, or the search bar, I can't go to a different site, or anything.

I have to open Task Manager to close out Firefox, then everything works fine. I reopen Firefox and it works fine except not being able to use the Minimize, Rrestore down, and Close buttons without using my Wacom, and then when I do, the cycle repeats.

I have tried unplugging things, putting in new batteries, nothing has worked and I don't know what could be causing this issue when Firefox has worked great for me all these years. I'm currently running a virus scan on my PC, but I don't see why it would ONLY be effecting Firefox.

Firefox now forces PDFs, even downloaded ones, to be opened in-browser. Frustrating is this setting has been introduced and right away replaced previous behaviour without any preceding notice, perfectly fine settings, now requiring to go to file explorer to open a PDF as if it was a file. How to disable this bloat?

I used to have an extension. But after removing it I still see its setting in about:config. I don't want to clutter my Firefox's profile. Look at the screenshot.

1. Is it safe to remove all these setting manually? 2. How can I confirm that all the unnecessary data is removed? (including sqlite databases, etc...) 3. Isn't it a responsibility of an extension's developer to remove all the settings when a user removes it? 4. If I install hundreds of extensions and then I remove them, will they remain in my profile after deleting?

Hello

I downloaded the newest update and now pages are loading with only text or barely anything at all. Some sites work and others don't. I know this problem happened in previous versions and there was a fix for it. Do you know how to fix this problem? Thanks.

I have added a picture of how the pages are loading improperly with just text.

When logging in to internet banking i have to enter a one time password and click on trust the computer . This should be a one time thing but I have to do it every time. This does not happen using Internet Explorer so why is Firefox not accepting the OTP ?

Using google to search online I have started to get this page almost every time I type in a search word. (About this page

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?

IP address: 92.40.187.37 Time: 2020-08-01T13:05:50Z URL: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=dvla+tax)

then I have to go thru a series of pictures choosing squares with traphic lights or buses to prove I am not a robot.

the only thing that has changed in my house is that I am now connecting using my iphone as a hotspot. this does not happen if I use Google Chrome as my browser.

Thanks

Steve

Where to I find the time that I open a website with Firefox? For example, I go to Verizon Support, and the Verizon Chat Agent is trying to find a solution. I have waited over an hour, and conveniently for Verizon, they cannot even let me download the chat in text or email. I'd like to know how much time I spend with Verizon (website) trying to get a solution to my problem.

Well, I don't know what changed! My antivir tells me that I got a tracking cookie but they want money to delete it. So I searched and found an add on called "NoScript" who could maybe do the job for me.

But my problem is: I am (always) online with Firefox. If I want to download/install ANY add on, the site always tells me "Only in Firefox - Download and install now". As I am online with the newest version (79.0) , I absolutely don't understand this message. Okay, so I gave it a chance, hit the button and "installed" what's allready on my computer. But after that there is no change! If I want the add on, I still get the same message: "Only in Firefox - Download and install now"

What can you do for me or is there (really?) anything I have to change to be able to install AddOns again?


Nun, ich weiß nicht, was sich geändert hat! Mein Antivirus sagt mir, ich hätte einen Tracking Cookie, aber die wollen Geld für die Löschung. Also have ich gesucht und ein AddOn namens "NoScript" gefunden, das diesen Job möglicherweise erledigen kann.

Doch habe ich ein Problem: Ich bin (immer) mit Firefox online. Und wenn ich IRGENDEIN AddOn herunterladen/installieren will, erklärt mir die Seite stets "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter". Da ich immer mit der neuesten Version (79.0) online bin, kann ich diese Nachricht nicht absolut nicht verstehen. Okay, also versuchte ich es einmal, klickte den Button und "installierte", was bereits auf meinem Computer ist. Doch danach hat sich nichts geändert! Wenn ich das AddOn will, bekomme ich nach wie vor die selbe Nachricht: "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter"

Was könnt Ihr für mich tun oder gibt es da (tatsächlich?) etwas, das ich ändern muß, um wieder AddOns installieren zu können?
