Since I posted this query, I kept trying things and went to the mouse properties and changed the speed of the double click. This seems to have fixed the problem. I am going to try and close down the question.

I accidentally moved to firefox 67 (64 bit) from (x86). Now, when I left click, the mouse frequently double clicks. Not all the time, but most of the time. For example, if I click on a drop down, it drops and then immediately closes. If I click on the zoom, it will skip one level and go up or down two levels.

I only have one ad-on, AdBlocker, and I disabled it to see what would happen , but it had no effect on the double click.

I did the latest update of Firefox on 2019-06-04 and I got a strange message about safe mode. After ignoring this message (which was really not clear to me), I discovered that my entire Firefox profile was gone: all my bookmarks, add-ons and other preferences are gone.

Ich habe Firefox seit Jahren als Standard. Heute kam eine Sicherheitswerbung zur Installation. Ich interpretierte diese als Update. Nach der Installation waren alle Lesezeichen gelöscht. Wahrscheinlich durch die komplette Neuinstallation? Wie kann ich die Lesezeichen wieder herstellen?

When I open my home tab by clicking the home button all my top sites have disappeared.

I had three lines of pinned top sites, set up specifically to help me do my work efficiently. They are gone and sites I have visited once - if that are now in their place.

Restoring bookmarks doesn't make them reappear.

I dfon't have an old firefox folder on my desktop.

Firefox seems to have done YET ANOTHER upgrade(sic) and not only lost the pinned sites but keeps putting messages from Firefox in the bottom of new tabs I open That means another interruption when trying to work.

Firefox seems to be sinking into a hole of annoy the users by putting more and more messages and changing stuff they have setup

How not to cycle in the search bar using keyboard shortcut

Earlier, I focused the search bar with ctrl+k, type the researched words, and used ctrl+up/down arrows to select the search engine. Let's say I wanted to use the first search engine: I had to press ctrl+up arrow until I select the first search engine. Pressing again ctrl+up arrow did not change the search engine.

This was useful because to select quickly the first search engine I didn't have to focus and read the search engine field: I just had to see when the search engine field didn't change upon subsequent ctrl+up arrow key stroke. (The same happened with the last search engine using ctrl+down arrow)

Now, if the first search engine is selected, pressing ctrl+up arrow select the last search engine, so I cannot quickly select the first (or last) search engine without focusing on the search field.

Is there a way, apart from adding a keyword to a search engine, for quickly selecting a specific search engine in the search bar?

I have been playing poker on this site... https://www.youdagames.com/en/online-games/governor-of-poker-3-free/

As of yesterday, June 3rd, the game simply will not load. Already tried clearing the cache, no good. Upgraded flash, nope. They suggested another browser. I have opera so tried, and it works just fine. I don't use opera. Don't really want to either. One browser is fine.

They finally admitted they just did a game upgrade and suddenly now firefox won't work? Sounds to me like this browser has an issue, not their game. Since it works on another browser.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I'm on version 64 and please DO NOT tell me to upgrade. The next version will AUTO upgrade without my knowledge or permission. VERY BAD AND STUPID IDEA TO FORCE THINGS ONTO PEOPLE! Let ME decide when, why, and IF I need an upgrade. NOT YOU! Hoping when you come out with the next version you LISTEN TO PEOPLE and stop forcing upgrades. Bad enough I have to click "not now" every damn time I launch this thing. STOP IT!!!! This has been said by MANY PEOPLE too. LISTEN! STOP IT! So an upgrade isn't happening. If I have to I'll simply switch to opera. Really don't want to do that.

Hoping you can figure out why this simple game site suddenly stopped loading.

I will forward this post to the support person I've been talking with. MAYBE you two can get together and figure out what went glitchy? (I have been reading many similar complaints while searching your very confusing maze of a site trying to find where to post this. So it seems you have problems on many fronts with sites not functioning.)

I did an update yesterday (Not sure thats the culprit) and it also asked me to update Flash. Now I have some adware/malware on my Firefox and Chrome browsers called Advancesearchmanager. I did a search and was able to remove it from Chrome. I also called Apple support and they say it is not on Safari. They tried to help with Firefox and had me delete and reinstall but it still shows up. How do I get it off my computer (and how did I get it in the first place)/

I have a lot of sites I check regularly and have them sorted in folders. I know the way to open a single bookmark without automatically switching to it, but when I open all the bookmarks in a folder, it automatically switches to the first bookmark in the folder. Is there any way to stop this from happening?

Hi, Please see pictures.

As per everytime I update Firefox I end up spending hours trying to sort issues out and ending up in a foul mood. Everything was fine in 65, I update to 67 and I'm not sure whether I want to scream or cry more.

Issue 1. I lost Adblock plus, I managed to reinstall and lost all my settings that I can't recover. Years of settings gone. All other apps as far as I can tell are still installed so why did adblock get deleted with all the settings?

Issue 2 I can't see addons on the addons page. Same goes for themes and plugins. I've done safe mode where I can see them. I updated them in safe mode. But still can't see them. They were fine in ver 65.

Any ideas? Thanks

Does anyone have an opinion about the relative merits of the built-in Firefox Password Manager and the one provided as part of Norton security suite? It is an add-on for Firefox that Norton has been beating me over the head to use but I already use the Firefox password manager. Is Norton better? Does anyone know?

Thanks.

Using v. 67.0 on Win 7 no matter what page I am viewing, if I leave to look at a different page, then come back, the page reloads. It is especially annoying when clicking on a link in an email. Note I do not have to sign back in. I just have to wait for the page to reload. It only recently began doing this. How do I fix it ?

Who remembers this error from before (about this time last month)? Yeah, I don't know if others are having this problem, but I sure am. Only 2/8 of my extensions reinstalled after moving over to Firefox on Linux (sync is enabled), and attempting to reinstall them results in the "Download failed. Please check your connection." error. As with other posts near May, I am connected to the internet, and I even tried a VPN that I luckily was able to download but to no avail.

I have been using fire fox for over 5 years. I like it and have been using it exclusively over chrome for much of that time. Now I was bounced out and a new sign was requested instead of just opening up as usual. I went to my password book and typed in the password exactly as written... ERROR: PASSWORD WAS NOT RECOGNIZED. Nothing is written anywhere on this. My only recourse is to reset my password with the possibility of losing data. I will never trust Mozilla to handle all my passwords if this is an example of how they perform.
