There are several posts on this site regarding uninstalling Firefox. I am running current Firefox on current W10 64bit 1903 desktop PC using Ethernet with Spectrum as my ISP. I am having a couple of problems in Firefox that are not happening in current Chrome. 1. Page-not-found 2-8 times a day that resolve every time by simply clicking the "retry" (or something close to that) button. I reset my router to "factory" and installed most current router firmware but that did not help. Netgear Support has been unable to help. 2. In current LastPass addon, I have to re-login to LastPass every time I start Firefox - did not used to do that (a year ago), and in Chrome or Edge that does not happen. I have re-installed the LastPass add-on. I have upgraded Firefox many times and have cleared history/cache many times. So now I want to COMPLETELY remove Firefox, reboot, and then install Firefox from scratch. Can someone please point me to the web page that tells me how to properly remove all of Firefox so that I can re-download/install it from the beginning? I do not care about retaining my Firefox settings or other from my current Firefox install.

I have just installed Firefox 57 (Quantum) 64 bit on my PC and my Laptop (both Windows 10 (1709)).

On both my machines, Quantum displays pages appallingly slowly and often freezes, when no tabs or the settings menu can be selected and nothing else produces a response.

I cannot believe that this software has been properly tested on users' machines at their homes - its deficiencies would have been blindingly obvious. Their is clearly a huge problem here.

I was so looking forward to returning to Firefox but it is a complete disaster.

Please find a fix soon or I will have to uninstall Firefox, maybe permanently. It is useless to me in its present state.

How do I totally remove Shockwave Flash 15.0.0152. Using Ubuntu 12.04, FF 32.0.3. It seems that I have Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.406 installed also...How ???. When I disable SWF 15.xxx, it disables SWF 11.xxx also.

This was happening before I installed Chrome browser. Chrome is the only way I can use my computer without throwing thing about the room.

When I enable SWF 11.xxx, and leave SWF 15.xxx disabled, SWF turns on SWF 15.xxx. Seems these two versions are screwing up everything on my computer. Can't watch videos, FF goes gray screen and stuck, for 30 seconds, then recovers, then goes gray screen, then a message comes up "bad script -- Stop?", etc.,etc.

Lately when I am using T-bird email the screen goes gray and stops working.

Please help

Thanks SB

FF29 has deactivated moving tabs to bottom - i.e. closer to work area, FORCING users to move the pointer farther to select a tab. about:config setting no longer works. Would someone please explain how removing this option is beneficial to users?

.... just more "we are smarted than you, and know better than you what is best for you" elitist crap.

And don't tell me to use an extension, they come and go, don't work after updates, etc.


Moderator locking this thread. The thread Owner never returned and this thread has strayed off-topic too often. I think users needing Firefox 29 support would be better served by starting their own Questions thread.

I think this is really a feature request, but I didn't see a forum for that. I used to use firefox almost exclusively, but switched to chrome when I started freelancing for a couple of different companies -- the identities feature of chrome really helps me keep my sanity by having a unique identity for each company. However, an issue has recently developed with chrome that made me switch back to firefox. The profiles feature in firefox seems to have gotten a lot better since I made the first switch, and I'm pretty happy with how it works ... with one exception:

With firefox, clicking on a link in a different application always opens in the default profile. With Chrome, it would always open in the browser window that was most recently active. This is a very intuitive behavior, as whatever I am doing in the other application (e.g. thunderbird, evernote, skype) is almost always related to whichever browser window I had opened last.

Any chance of this getting implemented? Or maybe there's already a way to do this? I found the following related topics, but neither helped with this question:

Suddenly while browsing, I got a bar notification saying that some of my addons had been disabled because they were unsupported. Clicking the button took me to a page that showed no addons, but linked to a page for Legacy Addons in which I found 25 of my addons (That's literally all but 2) have been marked as "not verified for use in Firefox" and disabled, despite literally all of them working mere seconds again and a large majority of them being obtained directly from Mozilla's official addon website! Firefox didn't even receive an update or anything, they just all randomly got flagged out of nowhere for no reason. Why are all of my addons suddenly marked as unverified and disabled, and how can I enable them all again?

Update 89.0 changed the browser theme to something I don't like, too pale and pastel. Options to change back to what I had aren't available. The options presented are now uglier than this sick looking theme.

How do I undo 89.0 update? Pretty much looks like (from release notes on another post) 89.0 has nothing at all to do with security and it's just someone at Firefox wanting to change things just for the sake of changing things.

I hope Firefox isn't going to start doing silly things like moving the first floor to the second floor and the second floor to the first floor just because some administrator feels like it.

I know that firefox once put the tabs on top, but I had that fixed with setting in "about:config" the value for "browser.tabs.onTop" to "false". Now, after upgrading Firefox to v.29 this entry is still set to the false value, however, I can't get the tabs below the adressbar (which is super annoying). Any ideas how to resolve this?

Sorry guys, i am disgusted with this upgrade. 29 does not seem like a good ui update at all. The menu bar looks really bad and so does the tab. Furthermore this does not solve my other tab issue i have either in another question i have asked.

How can i revert back to my last version with all my tabs/windows/history restored? I will do a system restore if i have to and then cancel all automatic updates. I honestly dont care if it gives me a bigger security risk.

Hello!

So, I was working on a new blog on which I'm using the Rubik font from Google fonts.

Everything was fine for several days, but today, after working for some time on it, the font just got messed up randomly (see attached image).

I added the font on a different, testing site and it shows messed up there as well, so it's not something website related.

Now, the shocking part is that it gets messed up only on Mozilla and only on the Mozilla browser that's on my Desktop PC.

I asked a friend to check it out and I also checked it out on my laptop, and the font is fine on other Mozilla browsers, as well as other browsers.

Other fonts from other websites are fine as well.

What troubleshooting I performed:

- Checked the font with Inspect Element, as it's shown here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/Edit_fonts and the font is set up correctly;

- Deleted the whole history since the beginning of time (cookies, cache, everything);

- Closed and opened Firefox again;

- Opened Mozilla in Safe Mode (hardware acceleration is disabled by default in safe mode);

- Restarted my PC;

- Uninstalled Mozilla as it shows here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer. Deleted the profile folder and everything.

- Installed a fresh copy again with no add-ons, no nothing.

Nothing worked. That font is still messed up on Mozilla, on this PC.

It doesn't make any sense, especially since it went nuts randomly without a particular reason.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem and how to fix it?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hello Techies, First meet my system... Linux 32bits (Lubuntu), provided with: Lightspark, an SWF player, and all what Linux comes with.

Firefox ESR 52.4.0 (very old machine, its CPU doesn't have the SSE2 extension) provided with: HTTPS Everywhere, Ubuntu Modifications, YesScript OpenH264 Video Codec, Shockwave Flash, Widevine content Decryption module

I try to connect to a site, a radio station one, and Ff tells me a web page is slowing down the load process. Wait? Stop? Waiting is useless because the page never loads. Stopping leads to the site (simple http, without "s") but many parts of it do not respond. In other parts of the site Adobe Flash Player is mandatory to access the content. As you can imagine my system is not provided with Adobe and I guess this is why Ff warns me and can't access the site. I'm not installing Adobe, I don't even know if it is possible, and safe! How can I fix this? To me I should overstep Adobe, installing to the system something similar that the site can "like". Any suggestion? If you need it I can give the exact URL of the site. Many thanks for your educated answer!
