These last few days, maybe since the last update, Facebook is grudgingly slow and doesn't sometimes even load photos. Today it isn't even loading notifications on the right hand side.

With the photos, it shows just a space holder with text saying things "May be an image of a car" in the top left hand corner.

Hello,

On a fresh win10 installation, I installed the latest version of firefox (90.0.2). However, firefox won't start after that.

I tried starting from the command line in safe mode (firefox.exe -safe-mode), and I see very briefly (less than a second) a window with the title bar "Open Firefox in troubleshot Mode ?" starting to appear, but it disappears almost instantly.

A similar thing (dialog window briefly appearing) happens when I try to open the profile manager from the command line.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, with no effect.

Any idea what could be the issue ?

JP

PS : this is posted from a mac machine, hence the mistaken mac tag. The issue is about a win10 installation

Hey there,

Recently I haven't been able to view anything on Google Images (iOS) and haven't been able to playback any facebook videos (on Mac OS).

I've done all the obvious steps, cleaning the cache, delete and reinstall the app etc, but nothing seems to be working.

Screenshots attached – any solutions at all welcome. I love Firefox so don't want to have to switch to another browser!

Thanks Will

Hello

I am using Firefox 90.0.2 on Windows 10.

It is impossible for me to connect to the website

    http://www.minresco.com/

Something is blocking it. It is not my ISP (I checked with them; they suggested that either Firefox or antivirus software is doing this).

How do I tell if Firefox is doing the blocking, and how do I remove the block if it is?

Thanks,


Kurt

I have a HP Laser network printer. I can print to it from everything except Firefox, my favorite browser.

Anytime I try to printer I get "Print Preview Error -- an error occured while printing".

I can print to a pdf, then print the pdf, but that is terribly awkward.

Is there a setting in Firefox causing a problem?

Whenever I check "about Firefox" under the Help menu, if there are updates, FF automatically downloads and installs them. This is not my preferred method of installing updates. When I go to the Tools/Settings and type in "Updates", I find that the "Automatically install updates (recommended)" button is selected. Of course, I immediately change this to the "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" setting, which lasts until I (manually) install the next update. At that point, the new update setting defaults back to "Automatically install updates (recommended)".

Is there a way to make my update selection stick?

Hello, I need your help with removing a duplicate bookmark star from the URL bar, please. The thing is I already have moved it to the top left corner just as I prefer. However, the star in the URL field is impossible to kill. I have tried to use the customization menu but it does not allow me to drag off this annoying URL star. And, even if I right-click it in hope to find something like "remove/hide the Bookmark star" this star does not react to right-clicks. Also, after some research I have not found the way to do it via about:config :-( _

  Can you help me remove the star in the URL bar? The star in the top left corner though should stay because this is where I need it, but the star in the URL bar should go away.

PS this problem appeared after the "wonderful' June GUI redesign. Before that I was able to remove the star easily from the address bar. I am attaching a screenshot below:
