Hi - I'm having an issue with Firefox, well its been ongoing for some weeks but just getting around to it..

My problem is that Firefow will not download files. I have tried the trouble shooting steps and its not a firewall issue because my other browsers will download - as a developer I have all the major browsers installed.

Also I changed the settings to have Firefox request the download folder for each downlod - but it doesn't. Anyway I am about to reinstall will post back then.

Maybe should have done that first.

using the CTRL+TAB to show open thumbnails tabs visually is a great feature firefox have over other browsers and what encouraged me to leave chrome. have only 6 inst very effective - this needs to be dynamic (for at least 10-15 tabs) and going over the web is seems a lot of people asked this feature.

Is there a way to change this? if not where can I ask a feature request?

The title basically says it all already. In the documentation of the new tab page it tells you how to remove them, but not how to add them. There should be a way however. For some reason, the pocket suggestions disappeared from my new tab page, and I haven't found a way to get them back. I know from another machine that under settings there should be a check box that you can tick to enable or disable pocket suggestions on the new tab page, but on the system in question, this option is simply not there. How to fix?

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

Hello, I use FF for our ticket system at work and I am not really a user of keyboard shortcuts. For me it is more a disadvantage, because while typing in the ticket system the CTRL-A, CTRL-N and so forths bindings are doing nonsense. This sometimes happens if I press CTRL and not SHIFT. So, all in all, it is me to blame and not FF. But if FF ignores my miskate, it is a big improvement in my daily work.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Björn

None of the ad photos show up on Kijiji, they just have a white box instead. I've tried clearing browser history/cache, disabling all add-ons and even safe mode but I still can't see any photos. It's not a Kijiji problem as I can see photos fine on Chrome and on my phone as well. Anyone else have this problem?

Hey guys, I'm having some issues when using Firefox with a 4K monitor.

Whenever I resize the window to 768px using either the Inspector or a website page builder like Elementor (as an example), it actually resizes the window to 767.833px.

This causes a lot of websites to break, as most have styling for (max-width: 767px) and (min-width: 768px).

This has existed for months now, and doesn't happen on Chrome. In Chrome, 768px shows as 768px.

Any ideas on why this is happening, or how to fix it?


Thanks!

I'm trying to access this site www.foodnetwork.com and always en up on www.tudiscovery.com/foodnetwork which is not what I want. I don't know when Discovery started the IP redirect because I could access the original Food Network site without any problem until last year. Is there a way to avoid this redirect in Firefox because the only solution I found so far is using TorBrowser. Thank you

ABP 3.0.- latest. FF latest. Win10.

Constant error. Also being forced into Outlook.com to address the error, while on another website. This error replaced the constant - a webpage is slowing down your browser. I remedied that w/a a different *about:* - but I do not remember what I inserted.

I tried disabling possibly troublesome addons. No help. I let the script run longer using about:config. No help. I am in safe mode, but no error now - which does not mean anything. In prior error (webpage slowing browser), safe mode did not alleviate the problem at all.

Cannot view FF or addons, which is why I did not put versions in. Andrew deleted my post.

Thank you.

Some errors: A script from the extension “Adblock Plus - free ad blocker” is running on this page, and making Firefox unresponsive.

It may be busy, or it may have stopped responding permanently. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if it will complete.

Script: moz-extension://a62ee157-7dfb-…148ca9499be/include.preload.js:12050272Script: https://pro.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.4.2/js/all.js:192376832 Script: https://pro.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.4.2/js/all.js:186986496 Script: moz-extension://a62ee157-7dfb-…148ca9499be/include.preload.js:190863384

I have a Synology NAS which is set up for HTTPS using a certificate from LetsEncrypt (Synology's recommendation) However when I try to access the NAS via my Firefox browser (v79.0) Initially I get an error. The "i" in the URL box advises me "Connection not secure" However, when I press the "try again" button I can access the NAS as normal. Checking the padlock in the URL box it confirms it confirms I have already set an exception to this login. This happens every time I restart my Windows 10 pc. However, if I just close the browser and try again during the same session it connects straight away. It is not a showstopper but I would like to get to the bottom of it with your help... Why will it stop me on first attempt but always give me access when I press Try again?
