I am getting a 404 Not Found message on only one page of a gigantic web site (www.bowl.com). I go to this page 10 or 15 times a week--for almost 20 years--and have never had a problem. Bowl.com's IT department has no idea why. I have cleared my cache and history (many times over the last week or so), and nothing seems to work.

I can access this page with Edge, and with my smartphone and on other computers in my network (Firefox), but I have to access this page with my THIS computer.

I had to stop using Firefox over a year ago because almost every time I'd come upon a video, the page went crazy--like it had 5 pages jumping on top of each other. I'd lose control of my mouse and couldn't close Firefox or access Task Manager. Basically, nothing worked. About 3 months ago I tried Firefox again and was so happy because I was able to use it again with no problems--UNTIL the past 2 Firefox updates. Now it's back to the same old problem and I'm back to using Chrome. Why is this happening and is there any solution?

Firefox will no longer load. Task manager shows it is running, but nothing comes up on screen. All of this seemed to have started when I downloaded Thunderbird, which I have also deleted off the computer. That is the only thing I have downloaded on this computer. I have noticed a white box appears on screen, bottom right corner every time I try to open Firefox. Nothing is in the box. I have deleted and reinstalled the software. Nothing seems to work.

My system is Windows 10

window.addEventListener('storage' ...) not Firing When "Clear Data" Button Used from "Settings | Privacy and Security"

In JavaScript I did addEventListener('storage', ...), and it's working fine as long as I use localStorage.setItem(), .removeItem(), or .clear(). However, when I use the "Clear Data..." button under "Settings | Privacy and Security" it seems the event does not fire. I noticed that in Chrome the corresponding settings option to clear all data does fire the storage listener, and this is the behavior I'm looking for.

Thanks.

Hello,

I want to permanently remove these notifications by whatever means necessary.

This is the same issue that was[[ previously discussed here.|https://support.mozilla.org/no/questions/1237229]] previously discussed here. However, the chosen solution is only a temporary workaround, I am only interested in a permanent fix. I have dom.webnotifications.enabled set to false yet these notifications still appear. Is it possible to disable them using a policies.json file?

Preamble: for most of the day I have Firefox open with several tabs. For a specific project I want Firefox open with one tab showing a specific webpage. At the same time I don't want to delete the existing tabs in the existing instance of Firefox - I want to keep them running in the background. Question: how do I create a desktop shortcut which opens a new single instance of Firefox with a single tab showing a specific URL ?

I got a new computer so I created an acct and set all my open tabs and history to sync. It wasn't intuitive to my not techie brain, but found out how to open all the tabs on the new computer. However, they don't open in the same order (makes it almost useless when you have a lot of tabs), and the tabs don't have their associated history.

Is there some way to have Firefox open tabs and history in the same state on the new device?
