I use Firefox for school on my school laptop and the school desktops, which works fine. At work though, when I visit certain sites, Firefox almost acts like CSS is being disabled. I have taken a screenshot (attached) which shows how our school site looks on my work machine. The URL to the site is this: http://helenacollege.edu/

The only add-ons I'm using are: 1. Adobe Acrobat (currently disabled) 2.Open H264 Video (default Firefox plugin) 3.Widevine Content Decryption Module (default Firefox plugin)

So I don't think the add-ons are a problem. I have tried clearing all cookies, website data, and the cache, all of which hasn't solved the issue. I also get an error message saying the latest Firefox updates can't be downloaded and I need to do a fresh install. I have tried the fresh install, but the issue persists.

Ok so built a new PC all setup used Firefox sync to get all my bookmarks over and things seemed to be working well.

Then I noticed that spell checker doesn't work. No red lines, no options when I right click. I've also noticed that keyboard commands no longer work for copy and pasting.

This is only on Firefox I tested on Chrome and Edge and had no issues.

I've googled and nothing comes up that has fixed my issues. Check spelling as you type is ticked.

I'm at a loss here had no issues before now.

Hi,

I am in the Netherlands and by default, the Firefox that is downloaded from the main page is in Dutch. I dislike having my applications in Dutch so I tend to set them to English at the earliest opportunity but Firefox seems to be stuck somewhere halfway in between. Here's what I did/tried: - First downloaded the regular Firefox, set it up, changed the language to English in settings and went on setting up. After a number of tweaks and addon installs I restarted the browser. - The browser is now in what I would call Dunglish; the settings page and various other things are in English, but the menubar and various other standard controls are not, they are still in Dutch. - I went into about:config and changed the intl.locale.requested value to only say En-US, before it had NL tacked onto the end of that. No change. - I downloaded the language pack addon and restarted the browser. No change. - I downloaded the US version of Firefox and installed it on top of the other, Dutch, version. No change.

I'd really rather not remove my profile entirely and start from scratch as I've been working on setting it up just the way I like it for half a day now and I'd rather not redo all that. What can I do? So to summarize, I know of the language-specific browser version and installed it without results, I know of the article describing how to use Firefox in another language, I know of the language packs and I know of the intl.locale.requested variable already. None of these solutions have solved the problem. Thanks a lot for reading and for any help you can provide.

How do I go into Gmail and edit/add/delete email addresses??? A couple months ago I read online how to do it since there is no icon or anything on the Gmail "Inbox" page any more to allow for additions/corrections. ONline I found a way to do that. I try now and the 'fix' that is offered online is to be sure you have downloaded the current Firefox version, which I just did. (65.0.2) Following online directions of clicking on Gmail in top left hand corner, nothing happens! Clicking on Gmail logo does nothing either! This should NOT be this different to make changes to people's email addresses/groups. I closed out of Firefox and reopened browser and that did nothing either.

Please help!

Thanks, dcseguin

Firefox on Linux won't remember actions with downloaded files

When I go to download a file, Firefox keeps asking me what I want to do with the file instead of just downloading it as I've told it. It USED to give me the "remember my choice" option but that's greyed out right now.

First things first, I KNOW it's in my prefs somewhere because when I moved the .mozilla directory and started firefox, this worked, so I'm wondering where other than prefs.js and mimetypes.rdf that this action is dealt with. Those are the only 2 files I can find that are mentioned that have anything to do with this, and neither one of them are the culprit.

I can't erase the whole profile because re-entering passwords, etc. isn't really feasible, though if there's a good way to select what data you want to save while migrating to another profile, I'm all ears.

As per the title, I can no longer access Amazon.com after the latest FIrefoc update. As soon as my update completed, I tired to access Amazon.com but to no avail. I get the following error:

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.amazon.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.amazon.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

I can access other sites, including Amazon.ca and other shopping sites. How do I resolve this problem?

Hello,

I've been having issues with Firefox crashing over the past few weeks, increasing in how often. Today, it crashed 6 times with the above report IDs. I tried reading the crash reports but I don't quite understand what's it's telling me. Any advice on how to fix it?

Thanks,

I want to be able to sync only a single bookmark folder between home and work. I don't want or need most of the work bookmarks at home, and I don't want my home bookmarks at work. However, I do sometimes run across sites at one I would like to use at the other, and currently the only way I can find to do that is email the link to myself. It would be much easier if I could just have one shared folder I can sync between the two. Is there an extension that does this? I've seen a few bookmark extensions, but I can't find one that just syncs one folder.

I've been using this browser for more years than I can count. This is a new problem, I had it a few weeks ago, the solution then worked. Today, I restarted my machine, and the problem is back. I had to uninstall it, delete the folder, install again. I also had to run ipconfig /flushdns to get it back running.

So, I rebooted, tried to run CCleaner to clear out some detritus, it said Firefox was open. It wasn't. So I tried to open it and I got a blank screen. I uninstalled it again, repeated the flush, tried to delete the folder but get a message saying I can't because it is open. Though it is not on my machine. I cannot root it out, like some kind of ghost.

I've changed my default browser. I'm a little tired of this issue continuing. It is not happening in any other browser. So, I am open to suggestions as to what to to do, and how to avoid this coming up repeatedly as well. Each time I've gone through this reinstall process, I've had to redo everything, pinned tabs, etc. This is far too high maintenance a program to keep. It is depressing.

I do have it running on my backup machine, another Win 10 Pro, it works fine there. This is a Win 10 Pro, 64bit, 16 GB ram, new last November, machine. Very nice except for this one recurring issue. I also have it on my iPhone, iPad and MacBook with no issues. I have rebooted since the last time this happened, so I have no idea why today it got recalcitrant on me again. I don't want to spend three hours on this problem over and over, I hope you get why. I'd appreciate any advice. I am a half inch away from just moving on completely. That frustrated. I just love so many things about this browser I hate to give it up but I haven't the time to keep this merry go round going either. Thanks.

I am trying to make a CORS get request to my server. My server is properly CORS enabled.

I am sending an additional header so preflighted option call is sent by browser.

This is working in Chrome but not in firefox. In firefox i can see the options call with 200 as return status code but the subsequent get call is not sent which is happening perfectly in Chrome. My server is also using certificate issued by Global CA like DigiCert . This CA is present in Firefox trust list.

In firefox i see these messages in console

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://serverurl. (Reason: CORS header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ does not match ‘https://tryit.w3schools.com, *’).[Learn More]

I updated to Firefox 66 on Linux yesterday. I don't know if it's the browser version, but I noticed that nytimes.com started picking up that I'm browsing the site in private mode.

Interestingly, this is something that used to happen on my Chrome book when I used private mode, but this on Firefox, this is a first for me. It may well be that nytimes changed their code to do this, but I wonder upgrade to FF 66 contributed to this.

In any case, I wonder how a site can pick up if the user is browsing in private mode.

Hey, I know this question has been tackled in the past, but I tried following previous guides and none of the code listed in those guides worked with the latest version of firefox (66). I'm a mac user (you guessed it lol) and I wanted to put the "close tab" x button on the left of the tab, and not the right, so that its consistent with the rest of Mac OS.

Does anyone know how to do that, or is there an extension which does this?

Thanks!
