On nbcsports.com domain, most pages have a comment section. There is no login to the website itself, but you can comment on the articles by signing in via several options- Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Facebook,.... etc. The site facilitates the sign in when you click "Post" or "Thump up, Thump down" by prompting to "sign in with.." and only shows the first 2 choices and a "show more" button, when you click "Show more", it is supposed to drop down the rest of the login choices, but it doesn't. In Firefox the whole applet just freezes. I tried all trouble shooting options, including complete uninstall and reinstall, safe mode, disabling firewall, and every Firefox t/s option I came across , but the issue persists. BTW, it works fine in Opera, Edge, and IE11.

I've been having this issue since the forced update to Quantum- The worst upgrade I've ever seen. I'm sure Mozilla people thinks it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. Well, you're wrong.

Hello,

I would like to be able to add a bookmark to the Firefox Home page.

The highlights section is useful however it would be great if there was a section I could edit and add custom bookmarks.

Cheers! Paul

I have u block origin already.

I had media autoplay set to false. Now yahoo.com news autoplays vids (again). The autoplay literally started on October 24, 2018. 1- what happened to allow autoplay on yahoo when it was successfully blocked all this time? 2- what can I do to stop video autoplay? Idiot level instructions please- set one go here type instructions. I already went the "add on" route. Flash blockers didn't work at all. All other "vid blockers" are for youtube and will not work on yahoo news as I tried hoping one would work.

Maybe I am stupid, but exactly WHAT settings are needed to stop autoplay on yahoo.com that are in ublock origin or in firefox about: config settings (media.autoplay =false), which doesn't seem to have any effect anymore. Is something else in about:config needed?

Site example where annoy vid autoplay now exists: https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/dont-want-attention-mother-6-year-old-boy-whose-birthday-party-guests-no-shows-speaks-185110033.html

In the past few days, the block video autoplay option is not working. It had been working properly for years. I have video autoplay turned off in about:config and the option to block autoplay is no longer available under the settings menu. What settings need to be changed to re-enable this in the update. This is extremely annoying.

FF recently updated and when it restarted my browser window is now not showing my menu toolbar or bookmarks toolbar even though they are checked to be on. Plus the minimize/maximize buttons are overlapping my tabs at the top. It seems I'm in some different sized view or something that I cannot figure out how to get out of. I am not in "full screen" view (already tried F11 to be sure). And I've tried dragging the sides out but that doesn't fix the top min/max button issue where it overlaps and my toolbars AND my MENU bar still do not show up. I've gone into customize and removed and then re-added the "bookmarks menu" but it only shows up next to the other icons, not in the normal "toolbar" format with my folders, etc. I can view my bookmark toolbar in the SIDEBARS but again it's just the top of my screen that's messed up and I know it has something to do with my min/maximize buttons being overlapped with tabs but can't get out of it.

I've put a screenshot below to show you what I mean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So there was an issue where my browser stopped automatically restoring my previous session after closing it. I followed some instructions I found online that told me to tick the option for it under Options -> General -> Startup, and this fixed the problem. However, this seemed to have caused my browser to directly close and stop asking me to save and quit even while browser.ShowQuitWarning is set to true in about:config.

If I tick off the option to automatically restore my previous session, however, I do get a warning that tells me I'm about to close my browser, but it only gives me the options to close tabs and cancel closing my browser; the option to save & quit is absent entirely.

That's about everything I know that could be related to this issue.

The Saved Password Editor (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/saved-password-editor/) was an excellent extension and highly useful extension, rendered inoperative by Quantum. While some people may think that this extension is no longer needed because of the built-in editor (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1186297) this is incorrect for a number of reasons:

  • Some website don't capture the login information and there is no way to manually enter the information: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1234322. Editing some json file is a ridiculous suggestion.
  • It annoying to navigate to the built-in editor and recently FF moved the "saved logins..." button down about:preferences#privacy so you now have to scroll in addition to clicking. Note: bookmarking chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xul is handy, but doesn't solve the other problems.
  • The built-in editor does not allow editing the website URL or duplicating a login.
  • All of this make it impossible to use the built-in password editor to save things like PINs or answers to secret questions, all of which was very easy with the Saved Password Editor extension.

So will Firefox ever enable the Saved Password Editor to work again? The add-on page says that the extension needs a WebExtensions API. Will Firefox ever have one of those again? If the functionality was added into the build-in password manager, that would be good, too. Thank you.

Until today, all html5 videos were being blocked just fine by that setting. Why is this happening and what can I do to re-block videos from auto-playing?

I have RA with fine motor control problems.

At times I have difficulty in getting the cursor on the pinned tabs. I don't have problems seeing so don't need to zoom in to make everything larger, I just need wider pinned tabs.

I use FF 63.0.1 on my Win10 laptop and need to make the pinned tabs wider for ease of use.

I found information about making unpinned tabs wider in about:config but can't find anything for the pinned tabs.

Thank you for your time.

I just installed FF 63 on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine, and I'm getting SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER errors at many, but not all, websites. Reaching the same websites via the same URLs using Chrome works fine.

All discussions of this problem seem to lead to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/error-codes-secure-websites?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=troubleshoot-SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER, but it's not helpful. My antivirus is Bitdefender Free, which appears to have no option for disabling the interception of secure connections.

Running FF in safe mode behaves the same as in "normal" mode: I get SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER errors at many (but not all) websites.

Help? As things stand now, FF is pretty close to useless for me.

When I start firefox 63.0 32-bit version in Safe mode as well as in normal mode Firefox tries to make a connection to the website cnhv.co. After reading from various malware forums it appears that cnhv.co has links to crypto mining software and as well as the notorious conhive.com. Firefox does not attempt to connect to any other website apart from cnhv.co. When firefox starts on my laptop it creates 4 processes. One parent/main process and 3 child processes. All the 3 processes try to connect to cnhv.co website. Starting the firefox in safe mode or after resetting it still leads to the same behaviour. Only firefox exhibits this behaviour when I try to launch it and when I shut it down. Other browsers do not.

So my question is as follows 1) How do I determine which process or what setting or the location of the infection that is causing Firefox to connect to cnhv.co? 2) How do I fix this? How do I clean Firefox such that it does not connect to any crypto website at startup and shutdown?
