Hello,

When I try to e-mail a topic from the Firefox browser, I don't have access to my default email program - Microsoft Outlook.

I've tried: Applications Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing by choosing the mailto option but no luck accessing Outlook. I would appreciate any help, please.

Thx Phil

I am an Austrian living in Vienna, the capitol. When I start the browser the location can be detected in many different ways. Wenn I open the browser or a new tab I am getting articles from GERMAN newspapers. This is nice but not really relevant. It is like when US users receive australian newspapers just becaus the language is equal. Please correct that bug!

Whenever I try to play a vod, any vod, I get "Your browser encountered an error while decoding the video. (Error #3000)" And this is like this only on Firefox, I've switched to it a week ago and it's been like that ever since and it currently works on chrome. I've tried incognito mode, and to disable trackers, but nothing worked as of yet. What could be the problem and how can I fix it?

thanks, doxi.

Avast (pro) blocks then reports: https://rclick.site/3LtGKV ... reporting it as a phlishing site/bot whatever - FF vs. 81.0.2 (64 bit).

Dear Girls and Guys,

As detailed above, Firefox starts then the first thing seen is a Avast warning screen saying it has "blocked an rclick site due to phlishing risk."
OK - not a drama - find the URL or add-on causing or calling that site, then bin (secure shred) it; followed by reporting it to folks like you, Avast, IObit, etc. {ie. normal practice}.

Issues. 1. I cannot find the site referenced in bookmarks. 1.1. Looked/searched manually running FF; 1.2. Saved all BM's to a HTML file (secured directory); then ran string searches (full and partial). ... Could not find it. 2. Tried to find reference to it at Avast (= failed, response bot is not designed for technical stuff - above finger painting or 'mud-pies' or 'how to change nappy'). 3. I have been working through my Firefox add-on apps - mainly because I think (fits logically) one of those is doing the site call (internal function) to this 'r-click' site ... thus far without luck. 3.1 I'm not young (though dementure might help that) - thus also have Seamonkey and Waterfox, etc., installed to look at/watch (progress, developments, teams talking, etc). As a rule all those have the same groupings of Apps/ext's - because I look at and rate those also. (have done, since the early Mozilla days).

The https:rclick.site/3LtGKV (phlishing) message/reaction does not come-up in Seamonkey, Waterfox or Tor browsers (using many of the same plug-in apps/ext's).

3.2 I was going to enter it in my firewall black list (added preventative), but would prefer to enter the actual calling application or URL; then report the same elsewhere.

Concluding and question.

In theory - I think it is an extention or application 'calling home' - possibly innocently - in which case I would like to remove it, then report it (as either problematic or malicious - in the extentions & apps reporting system).
Thing is I cannot find it/what is causing it.
It cannot damage me/my systems; however it can - if malicious - damage innocent/unsuspecting others.
Thank you and much sincere grovelling ... for clever tips and thoughts you may wish to bestow,
Be safe, keep well and keep smiling,
Rick.

The comp seems made a general update and restarting today seems Mozilla had upgraded too and appears with a specific mask (something new for me) as it wants by all means to enter a profile name finally to start working, i did, but having badly to recognize that all searched and open tabs are closed and deleted even from Chronik so that a week work just vanish .... I am absolutely angry about that .... at least update could offer and warning about to close and safe tabs as the update is going to delete them all.... aaaaarghhhhh

Hi everyone,

I want to use the website Roll20 for online role playing with people far away (and even complete strangers). On my former computer, I switched from Opera to Firefox to be able to use it with camera and microphone, and it worked well (Win8.1). On my new computer (Win10), it doesn't work any more. I don't get the prompt to allow the use of these devices. I don't even have any source to select for the microphone nor for the camera. I tried updating the drivers, updating Windows, but nothing changed. The camera works well with Windows's Camera app, and it seems to work fine on Roll20 with Google Chrome, so I still have this solution for next Sunday's game, but I would prefer to use Firefox if possible.

I'm using Firefox 81 on Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS When left unattended, Firefox (MainThread process exactly) continues to consume memory, and it returned to system only when I open about:memory or about:performance pages.

On about:memory / Measure I see that most memory is consumed by structured-clone-holder item 6.5Gb. WebContent process consumes stable amount (2..3Gb), because I have many open tabs, but this amount is not changed during the time.

Are there any methods to understand what is caused the structured-clone-holder to grow so big?

After a deletion of a profile; an attempt to sync back the preferences results in the search bar having the default engine not synchronised. It is overwritten to Google, despite doing sync for DuckDuckGo. I have done a parallel test on the "tracking protection" and the preference for that one does sync. Thank you for any suggestions!

EDIT: The DuckDuckGo addon accomplishes the desired effect. However, it only hides the problem.
