Firefox version - 82.0.03 64bits

I applied the -no-deelevate fix when I last upgraded and that worked ok Yesterday I ran Windows update - always a bad idea I know - and fixed the problems that caused, but now Firefox will no longer allow picture drag and drop. This IS a firefox issue because Chrome still works ok without any elevation command.

I have also done this: browser.launcherProcess - turn off, then turn back on

Any ideas please ?

When I go to the Yahoo main page, using Google and selecting Yahoo News - Current News it shows content but when you try to action anything it doesn't do anything and then shows an error. (see attached screenshots).

I have carried out all the recommended procedures including cookies, cache, etc and restarted Firefox with all Add-ons disabled and it still does not help with this problem.

I have used Yahoo for years and never had this problem and I have tried using Edge and Chrome and everything works as it should so it is definitely a Firefox issue.

So any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I started having problems with YouTube recently and I think it is a Firefox issue.

I am running version 82.0.3 (64-bit) and when I log into YouTube, the Home page is not displaying all the content.

I have attached severl screenshots and you can see the problem as follows:

Image Sign In 1 shows the YouTube home page before signing in. Image Sign In 2 shows the YouTube home page after I have signed in using my Google account and you can see at the top right of the screen that my Google Account avatar (Darth) is showing. However, a lot of the content, e.g. Watch Later, Classics and My Subscriptions which are user related are all missing and if you compare this image to Image Sign In Chrome you can see that Chrome is showing everything and works correctly.

I tried this on Edge as well and it works all okay, the same as Chrome, so that is why I think there is an issue with Firefox.

Also, on the left side in the middle in Image Sign In 1 and Image Sign In 2 you can see a blue Sign In box with the words "Sign in to like videos, comment and subscribe." If you select this option you get an error which is in Image YouTube Sign In Error so I don't know if this is related to my problem but I thought it may help highlight what the problem is.

Any confirmation that it's a Firefox issue or any solutions to what is causing it would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,

I recently downloaded and installed some Android emulator named "Andy". Unfortunately, the .exe also installed all kinds of other Software on my Windows 7 system.

I removed most of the unwanted Software but one problem remained: A search result hijacker was part of the package. It replaces the top 4 results with some cryptic redirect links that are luckily displayed in a different font, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed at all.

I tracked the issue down to a addon in Firefox (see attached screenshot) that I cannot remove, no matter what I try.

What I tried to remove it: - I tried to remove the addon via about:config - I tried to run Firefox in safe mode and uninstall it - I tried to factory reset Firefox - I Installed Avira and made a system scan - I installed MalwareBytes and made a system scan - I check all the extension folders for addons that I do not know but can't find anything - I checked my whole system for any xpi-files but couldn't find any.

I am out of ideas. I can disable the addon but thats about it. After a while Firefox will shut itself down and the next time I start it, the addon is on again. When I resinstall FIrefox, the same thing happens. The addon is always back.

When I inspect the element it loads some invisible icon file that is supposedly located in "src="jar:file:///C:/Windows/Installer/%7BB28AF4A4-C997-4A5B-A111-FD1E65138A8D%7D/%7B02E337C0-4D70-452D-AA64-92D0A8C5D953%7D.xpi!/icon48.png"", if that helps. But the location doesn't exist on my system.

Can anyone here help me? I alread sent a problem report via the official tool.

Sincerely Florian

I think I have a bug to report:

When I browse a website with an embedded PDF viewer (must be a Firefox default viewer because I haven't installed any other plug-ins), a notification bar on top of the website (right under the bookmark bar) pops up saying (translated from German): [Icon: ?] The PDF-document is not displayed correctly. [Button: "view with other app"] [Button: "x" for closing the bar].

The PDF viewer works, so the error seems unneccessary, but what really bothers me is that the bar can't be closed. Clicking the X-button on the very right doesn't work - the bar frozen until I restart the browser or close the tab. This problem exists already since summer, so at least for 2 or more updates.

Hi, I have used Firefox on my desktop pc using Windows o/s many years with minimal problem. Last few weeks Firefox operating strangely. Starts off fine then after opening a few tabs will not open others. Seems to be searching for new url but no show. When I close it down to re-open fresh a pop-up box appears with option 'close firefox'. Only when selected will firefox re-open. That then works fine for a few tabs then will not open after that. I have tried Refresh, Restart without add-ins, Safe mode. None have removed the problem. I have thought about Uninstall then reinstall a 'clean' firefox, but worried about losing all my data. The problem seems to have started a few weeks back after a Windows 10 update but I am not sure about that. Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

My wife and I are both suddenly blocked from opening a fav website: https://www.freedomconsciousness.com/

We now get a 403 Forbidden webpage (generated by Wordfence) instead.

Ditto when using the utube webpage, then in the About tab, trying to reach the website that way.

Trying the Mozilla technique of clicking on the lock icon ... I get both a secure connection message and a not-secure-connected message. Nothing I try after that affects anything. What to do???

For over two months I have been receiving: "Firefox does not respond" and many app does not respond messages lasting about 60 to 90 seconds. Of course the interruption occurs at an inconvenient time. I also have been receiving "Web page is slowing down your browser message for the last two months. I'm running Win 10 v1903 (64x32) I suspect that one of the latest updates might be the cause. Since this "does not respond" is annoying, I'm seriously considering switching to another browser. I have been very happy with Firefox up to this time. I am a little hesitant to switch. Is there a fix?

I've been having an issue over the past month or so where all my extensions stop working. I can't see any cause, and I usually don't even notice until I try to use one of the extensions. They work again if I restart firefox, or if I disable and re-enable the extensions one by one. It seems to happen every couple of days. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Okay so this is sadly an issue I think was intentionally caused by the website itself. The reason being they pulled crap where you had to sign up for premium to watch their videos about 6 months ago. Then after that and before this issue you were able to watch their videos as long as you turned off your ad block which I complied with.

Anyways I feel that's neither here nor there. The point is I can get each video to work with a work around, by right clicking the video after hitting play I click view video and I get redirected to I assume the source video. It works there no problem but every time I just try to click play itself it seems to be broken giving me the error code above. I was wondering if there was an actual conflict with firefox and the website or if it was just a cheap way to try and get people to subscribe to their payment plan implemented by the website itself.

Dear Firefox:

I recently updated the browser.

When I block junk mail, it still comes back. Sometimes an email cannot be received, probably cookies?

The old browser had a blocked email list which could be viewed and unblocked. I cannot find this blocking list to view or an unblocking ability on the new browser. How does one manage blocked email?
