I downloaded Firefox today. I received 3 messages that javascript is disabled. The first one was from Facebook (see screenshot). The second one was from Javascript when I was trying to figure out how to enable javascript (see screenshot). Yet when I checked about:config, javascript.enabled's value is "true" (see screenshot). The third one was from Firefox when I did a survey on why I decided to use Firefox (no screenshot). What am I doing wrong?

Lately every time I try and upload an image file from Firefox, the usual events happen i.e. an explorer window opens so I can choose the image, but none of the image files even show up as though they weren't even there.

This happened shortly after I was somehow signed out of firefox and lost all of my bookmarks, etc. so I'm wondering if this wasn't a hack attempt that broke my browser?

Either way Firefox is on it's way to being uninstalled if this continues because as a graphic designer I NEED to be able to upload images.

I frequent a website where I have several windows open simultaneously and need to move windows from one monitor to another.

When I do so, these windows Minimize and they do not display on the other monitor. The only way to display them once again is to Maximize them, but then they appear back on my first screen.

I ran across the solution that has me rename two profile files (localstore.rfd and another which I forget at this time). I renamed both of these files in both firefox profiles, but the problem persists.

I'd like to have a shortcut (desktop icon, or maybe an FF tab) that will open my favorite music streaming site into a very small window at the lower right corner of my Windows desktop. But I want all other FF windows/tabs to open in whatever size they were in the last time I exited FF. In other words, how do I setup FF to open a specific site to a specific size/location every time it's opened, but still allow other browser windows to open "normally"? TIA

I'd like to be able to remove email/email image or just plain 'email' anything from the right click context menus. Time was, there was an add-on (called Menu Editor) that would enable precisely this.

I'd like to be able to edit my right click context menus (like I used to be able to), but at a push, I defo want to get rid of these email.... right-click context menu entries. :)

I've not set up local email and (as my email is presently unconnected to Microsoft/Windows 10 - and I want to keep it that way), any time I accidentally select an 'email to' right click context menu entry, I get the setup email wizard, which irritates the crap out of me.

Losing the irritating and redundant context menu entries would make browsing more enjoyable.

I figure there must be a way.... ;)

When editing Google Docs the tab crashes after entering some characters. Safe Mode helps, but I cannot fix the issue without using Safe Mode

I am using Windows 10 Pro 1903, Firefox 69.0.3 (64-bit)

When I edit a document in Google Docs after entering some characters the tab crashes. If I stay on the same tab it stops to respond and after a few seconds it works again and all the characters I have entered appear. if i change to another tab and then back to the Google Docs tab then some round "reload" icon is shown, tab reloads and all is back to normal. When I change to about:performance when the Google Doc tab is hanging then it does not show up there anymore. After it is reloaded like 10 seconds later it appears again in about:performance.

When I start Firefox in Safe Mode then everything works fine and I cannot reproduce the issue. I then tried to narrow down the issue by disabling Hardware Acceleration, disabling all the extensions, plugins and making sure default theme is being used. But the issue was still there when I did not use Safe Mode.

I then created a new profile and after that did not help, I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the program files folder manually, reinstalled but the issue is still there. I also deleted all the Firefox System Add-Ons but still no success.

The issue happens with my normal Firefox in Private Mode, too.

How can I troubleshoot this further? What does Safe Mode do in addition to the things I have mentioned above?

Why can't firefox remember my logins and passwords without me having to manually check this every time I open the browser?

Every time I open Firefox I need to go in and manually check "Ask to save logins and passwords". If I don't do this every page I go to where I need my password, I need to manually enter my password. After I check this, I don't have a problem.... but I would have expected that Firefox would keep my settings, even after I close the browser. This has been happening for years.... and yes I have the latest browser. Also I'm using Windows 10.

Hi community,

I sense some dark patterns here, but before witch hunting I would like to confirm here with the devs or the community. Here's the situation:

1) I have sync enabled; 2) I have logged into my Firefox account; 3) I have manually disabled "save logins and passwords" option 4) wait sometime, like, in days. 5) Firefox started to offer "saving logins and passwords" 6) The respective option under privacy has been turn on, without my acknowledgement.

Was that by design or an error?

Regards,

Quan

Why do name-specific bookmarks fail with Facebook on first access, recent change

After I start Firefox 69.0.3, clicking on a bookmark of the form https://facebook.com/firstname.lastname gives an error message "Your request could not be processed." My FB toolbar is displayed but not the remainder of the FB page. I have dozens of bookmarks that all behave the same way. If I click on my name on the FB toolbar, the entire FB page displays. From then on, all my FB bookmarks work until I close FF and restart it. In all cases, the correct FB page address shows. These bookmarks have been working for a very long time and this problem has occurred in the last week or two. The bookmark https://facebook.com (without a specific person's page name) displays a complete page and not just the toolbar even after FF startup.

Op uw pagina: https://support.mozilla.org/nl/kb/aanbevelingen-firefox Onder de kop: Hoe meld ik me af voor aanbevelingen in Firefox?

Staat beschreven hoe de aanbevolen add-ons niet te tonen dan wel te beheren.

Ik de laatste nieuwe Firefox 69.0.3 (64-bits) geïnstalleerd en ik krijg niet te zien wat uw op uw pagina uitlegt. Zie bijgevoegde printscreens. De eerste is uit mijn browser, de tweede van uw website.

Ik zou graag van die aanbevolen reeks add-ons verlost worden omdat ik daar niet in geïnteresseerd ben.

Is het mogelijk om dit te veranderen in bijv. about:config? Zo niet heeft u dan misschien een oplossing voor dit vervelende probleem?

Met vriendelijke groet, yayar

Even when I search in Preferences --> Search --> Find more search engines, Google does not even appear in the results. When I visit Google.com, the green plus sign does not appear on the magnifying glass in the search toolbar, but it shows up on almost every other site. Even on this Mozilla Support site, the green plus sign appears and I can add this to my search toolbar, but I can't add Google.

This all started when I updated my Mac to Catalina, but I don't see why that would affect my ability to simply add Google to my search toolbar. Someone please help, this is driving me insane.

I went to about:profiles, and tried to follow the instructions provided to open a profile in a new browser, but as is almost always the case, Firefox had a problem with it, and started whining that I could not open more than one copy of Firefox at a time (attached).... Is this a joke, or has Firefox just completely lost its mind now?? I swear, I am two steps away from completely giving up on Firefox as a browser nowadays, because they seem to be so stuck on security that you cannot even use them as a browser anymore. Pretty much any and ALL convenience of the browser has been lost to the fact that they block almost everything, for one reason or another, and it is getting retarded now.... Can you do ANYTHING on Firefox anymore?? What is wrong with these people, and why are they destroying a great browser in the name of being overly careful?? Don't get me wrong, I am all for security, but not to the point where nothing works at all. There is a level of security that is helpful, and a level that is beyond necessary, which can completely break your experience. This is where Firefox has moved to now, it is getting to where its wants to be so secure that you cannot even surf the web anymore. Do I need to go over to Chrome, or are the Mozilla people going to get their act together, and save a really good browser, because I am sick to death of nearly EVERYTHING being blocked by Firefox for one stupid reason, or another!!

Everytime i start firefox after starting my computer I am logged out of all websites, for example youtube and netflix. I have tried every solution I oculd find online but none of them helps. I have cookies enabled and everything, but nothing works. This is why I keep having to download chrome, and its getting very annoying. It does remember me if I just restart the browser tho.

I was playing Backyard Monsters, then update came, game couldnt connect anymore , see prntscr link for sort like adress

1st error msg was like cant connect to the prntsrc adress, then it was a 404 and now 502 error.

first i thought its an server maintence, but day later still not working, i should get at least an flash message , allow or not, i try'd trouble shooting from basic till flash, i assume it should connect to a tracker or a script, so i even try'd go in security and choose advance and uncheck all, so all will be allowed.

http://prntscr.com/pk0ghg

i only use ff for the game, i even try'd firefox nightly, and with no account loaded, ccleaner full options on cleaner and reg. so i'm out of ideas, oh and google didn't work for years, only browser i haven't try'd is safari.

so i tryd, to be clear, basic, theme off, addons off, ccleaner, firewall, no account, diffrent firefox, flash TroubleShooting. and all this bc i allowed a ff update. *facepalm* but lesson learnd oh and maybe someone knows where i can get older firefox files, im not scared for sec. risks.
