Until recently, there were websites like Fox.com that I did not have to log back in every time after I left the website, but it kept me logged on. Recently it started asking me to log in every time. Is that someting done by Firefox or by the specific website?

For a long time now I had been able to access this webpage using Firefox: https://weather.bom.gov.au/location/r3gx0kn-alexandria . In recent months the browser does not even recognise anything has been typed in. On the other hand, Bing (my back-up browser) does take me to the site. It came to Firefox for a day or two earlier this month but is gone again. Can anyone suggest a fix please?

Many downloads I do that are big in size always just Fail. I try with other internet browsers and they work perfectly fine. I tried resetting Firefox already and that didn't do anything. I also tried safe mode to see if it was any my add-ons. All to keep failing my files. It only happens with Firefox.

I can print full webpages in other browsers but not firefox. Firefox only prints 1 page and then says "printer error". I tried the "config" solution and it didnt help. I am about ready to switch to another browser since I cant find a solution. Also, when I do print, it hangs up and I cant do anything else on my Windows 10 laptop.

Thank you for your help.

I think I'll fix my problem by deleting the Firefox virus from my computer.

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

Since a few days I noticed on two different windows 10 PCs that firefox keeps signin out of websites (yahoo, linkedin etc), and this happens semi-randomly but sometimes more than once per day. My security settings never changed, I did configure firefox to delete history when closing, but preserving cookies and active logins. I also tried to add those websites to trusted sites (in the tracking menu, the shield to the left of the url). Any advice?

Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

Problem: viewing radar at weatherunderground.com using Firefox only works in Safe Mode. This problem started about 3 weeks ago. The radar also works correctly using Edge. Advice? It has to be a Firefox setting that I have wrong. I have already tried "refreshing Firefox". That caused me a lot of grief trying to get bookmarks back.

For the last few days, my Firefox browser has gone really slow. For example it takes about a minute to retweet something. I have refreshed it and ensured it is the latest version as well as updating my laptop/restarting Firefox. The rest of my laptop and other browsers works fine so it does just seem to be Firefox. Any ideas? Thanks

All i wanted to do was move some favourites from one folder to another, no problem you would think...... Wait till you click the II/ tab , it decides to show some total crap thats not linked to your own favourites, but rather takingthe route of Microsoft ( Which is now unfortunetly my new browser ) ..

Why complicate things ?

Why not leave it in folder format, drag and drop

so unhappy as i wanted to avoid MSFT :(

Please dont rep[ly with did you read " XXX " and did you try " XX " ....

yes i did and its crazy complicated, if you want a demo of how to move a single file from folder to folder then i can show you, but until you sort this i am out ......

Since last update several keyboard shortcuts no longer work. I find them easier than using a mouse often. Two that are most annoying at not working is Ctrl-T to open a new tab Ctrl-C to copy. That now opens developer tools This all started with last update. Does anyone know how I can restore those keyboard shortcuts?

Anyone have any idea who would make a common keyboard shortcut like the one for copy do something different. Do these people not use computers?

Hi,

how can i allow flash if i open the Site without will be asked? I have set this in the policies.json. This is currently for testing.

"FlashPlugin": {

     "Allow": ["https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html"],
     "Default": true,
     "Locked": true
   },

But I always have to allow it extra.

And the second question: Can I hide the "Menu" button via policies.json?
