Starting Firefox makes annoying drop down notice "Your Firefox is out of date. Update now for better performance and security." No S*** Sherlock and the reason is that dev team has ruined the browser bit by bit the last five years so I stopped updating after the tab groups were removed and the ah so familiar "use an add-on" answer was given.

So about:config value to disable this notice is all I need?


Usability first, then security.

Hi,

Ive lost access to my Gmail account and need to know the date I created it. In Firefox history I can see dates for bookmark listings but not for history listings. I am able to see all listings in history-older than 6 months in perfect order and have located the listing/s that indicate when the Gmail account was made but can't see or get any dates. Also anything I select in the 'Show column or sort' doesn't work.

Please Help!!!

Hi guys:

I'm having some issues for the last few days when trying to send files via Whatsapp web with Firefox 43.0.3. This used to work flawlessly until a couple of days ago. Whenever I try to send a photo or a video, and I click on that option, nothing happens.

I have tried to do the same with Chrome and it seems to be working just fine, as a popup menu shows up and I can select a file to be sent.

Could someone else check if they have the same issue with Firefox?

Thanks in advance.

Since the windows 10 upgrade,here is what has happened. 1. My Android smart phone has tried to sync with my laptop. Yahoo mail is my default. 2. Google and Yahoo mail work fine on my phone. 3. I never set up a "MASTER" password for Firefox. 4. Firefox recognizes my email for yahoo but not my p/w. 5. The p/w that I have been using for 9 years is not recognized for Firefox. BUT I used it for this forum. 6. Every time I use a p/w I get the message to log in with my Master p/w. I choose cancel. Then continue. 7. How can I reset, hopefully "WITHOUT LOOSING MY FAVORITES"

Prior to a month ago my HP3520 printer would print data similar to what was on the internet screen. Suddenly, the printing changed to about a 4 point type size. This only occurs when I print from the internet. I.e. printing a page I've typed using my Word Perfect program prints the same size i typed it.

Thanks for your help! Hal Greene

Now I understand that FF doesn't let it's common user access certain websites for security reasons, and to start off I should say I appreciate Firefox because it seems to be the last browser allowing some customization and accessability for advanced users, not like Chrome or any Chromium form will let you do what Firefox will.

But I have this issue, FF decided that it wont let me create an exception for a banned websites. I'm assuming that the fact that I visit this forum will make me a non-desirable clientele for Mozilla, but I have had issues with posting on 4chan.org. Particularly every time I try to upload the communication gets cut off by Mozilla and strangely enough it won't even let me access certain parts like /banned section. When I add the exception and reload it apparentaly forgots the exception or just straight away never writes it down.

Is there a way to turn off this security protection as a whole? I have my own antivirus programs and any protection from FF is either very inconvinient or straight annoying.

I reinstalled and reset FF to factory settings multiple times, cleared cache, did everything I could, but FF still behaves the same.

For this web site: http://ulsterhabitat.org/ in the post Ulster Habitat News (facebook) (third image, first small one), the link to the facebook page will only open if: I right click on it and choose "open in new tab" (It does not matter if I give focus to the new tab or not), then I left click on the link and it works. If I left click on the link first, nothing happens. (link says "Ulster Habitat Facebook").

What I have done: run in safe mode, refreshed Firefox, reinstalled Firefox 43.0.3 (with all profile data removed - as clean as could be) with no extensions, altered settings or add-ons. Behavior is always the same.

System is Windows 7 Pro, latest up-to-date version, but Firefox also does this on a W7 Home system, and a W10 Home system, both with latest Firefox. No Firefox extensions or add-ons on the W10 machine.

Bonus: Chrome 47.0.2526.106 does not do this (it opens the link immediately). IE 11.0.26 does just what Firefox does. It would seem to me that the link should either work or not work, but not depend on opening in a new tab first. Fascinated by this. Thank you. Tim

In Library (window) > All bookmarks > Bookmarks Toolbar .. all my bookmarks are there from before and after the OneClick Optimizer [pic - bottom right]

How do I make all my bookmarks appear back onto my Bookmarks Toolbar ?
