I have three web browsers on my MAC Book Pro, and only Firefox is becoming corrupted. A week after installation I'll find that google.com no longer is my homepage (even though I've indicated it in preferences.) What appears to be another browser (centurylink.com) will appear listing hits like it does on google. I've gone to Century Link and deselected all if its services so that this doesn't happen - but it continues to happen. I uninstalled Firefox because Century Link said it was corrupted, and reinstalled it, and the same thing happened again after a week. I don't know why this is happening. Right now, I have Firefox uninstalled because I think it's a security risk. None of this is happening on the other browsers, by the way: Safari, Google Chrome.

Thank you for responding to this!

Hi all. Trying to transfer bookmarks from FF 48.0.1 to Safari 9.1.2 -so as to be able to sync with iPad Safari. I've always done this by means of the direct import option from Firefox in Safari but this has stopped working. Nothing happens, not even an error message. Not 100% sure, but I think this started happening after upgrading to FF 48.0.1. No recent Safari upgrades. Thanks for your help.

Firefox Blocking Ads

I'm trying to prevent Firefox from blocking ads on a particularly site. The site is https://forums.techguy.org/. I do not have an ad blocker on and have tested this with a fresh installation of Firefox.

I've troubleshooted the issue and the causes of blocking ads on this website are due to Tracking Protection and Never Remember History. When both of these features are turned on, ads aren't displayed. If I disable either one of these features (doesn't matter which), ads reappear.

The only close solution that I can find is disabling Tracking Protection by selecting the shield icon in the URL bar and disabling tracking for this session. The problem with this solution is just that; it only disables tracking for this session. So every time I close Firefox and reopen it, I have to remember to disable tracking again. I need a permanent solution as I'm human and definitely won't remember to disable this every single time.

I'm curious as to why these ads are even being blocked. On other sites (with an ad blocker), I can still see ads. On this site, without an ad blocker, I still can't see them. Is this site doing something different in the way in which they are displaying ads?

I'm looking for a permanent solution to disable ads on just this site without having to remove the features of Firefox that I'm using. Is there anyway in the settings of Firefox to explicitly add disabling tracking for a site? Similar to how the session based solution works, but this would keep the setting every time Firefox launches. Just spit balling here. I'm not sure how else I might be able to accomplish this.

asm.js 10* slowdown since firefox 45

Hello, I'm developping a math application compiled from c++ to javscript with emscripten 1.34.1 http://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/~parisse/xcasen.html (source http://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/~parisse/giac/emgiac.tgz) Under Firefox 45, performances are good, for example on my Mac, factoring a 128 bit integer takes 1/10 of second http://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/%7eparisse/xcasen.html#+time(ifactor(2**128+1))& But with newer Firefox releases, the speed as decreased, by a factor of 10 with Firefox 48, now it takes one second for the same computation. The Firefox desktop version is now significantly slower than the native version and the mobile version becomes really too slow. Is there some explanation and workaround other than telling my users to downgrade to Firefox 45? Thanks.

OS X 10.10.5. As has been happening with recent versions, Firefox announced an upgrade, but added in the same message that the upgrade could not be installed because the account lacked administrator privileges.* I downloaded Firefox 49.0 and replaced the previous version. I got the warning (no surprise).

Option 1: Using Finder I hold down the control key while clicking the Firefox app file. It opens. I close it, wait, click the icon in the dock. Same verifying and then the developer message with Cancel or Open. Option 1 does not seem to cause 49.0 to be recognized as accepted.

Option 2: I click the icon in the dock and choose Cancel in the developer message. Then open System Preferences>Security & Privacy. I see the message about Firefox and the Open Anyway button. Whether I am fast enough to click it or not, I can't tell. Whether I try to click (even if it seems I was fast enough) or simply wait a second or two, that part of the Security & Privacy pane is cleared. The next time I launch Firefox, OS X verifies and offers Cancel or Open.

We sell digital content - mp3 files that are zipped. In version 47.0 we suddenly experienced that our files were tagged as harmful when downloaded. The next day the issue disappeared suddenly. Today, it started to appear again and our customers are complaining - clearly worried what is happening. Any idea what is happening? How mp3 files zipped into one archive can be pointed our as harmful? How come it happens, then it disappears and appears again? Is this meant to be a protection or a piss content with the users? In our case we feel the later. How can this be fixed for good? Any help appreciated.

I have a continuing problem with Junowebmail on Firefox. It frequently crashes. It stalls out entirely than starts again. I have no extension running in firefox. In the past I adjusted the 'ABOUT:CONFIG' settings for network pipeline. This took care of some of the problems with typing Emails on juno. But now the juno website causes Firefox to lock and crash frequently. I don't have this problem on Safari or Chrome. Any suggestions. I am running an IMAC with the latest software version and everything up to date. It has plenty of room on the hard drive and again no other browsers have this issue with Juno.

About "Be Nice" .. not so nice below, BUT I AM SIMPLY FED UP WITH FIREFOX SCREWUPS ... YES, SWITCHING TO GOOGLE CHROME, BUT I NEED THIS FIXED TO GET MY DATA BACK AND EXPORT :

Once again ... Firefox has destroyed my bookmarks, add-ons etc. when I "updated" Firefox ... Macbook Pro OS X

in the past, I have cumulatively taken hours to fix this -- on 4-5 occasions of the SAME PROBLEM (read: unfixed by Mozilla/Firefox)

a) why cant Firefox get their stuff together? .. WHY DOESN'T MOZILLA/FIREFOX FIX THIS !!!!


b) do they think my time is free? how can they, getting paid for their software development, expect me to lose money away from my business every time I "upgrade" ... so presumptious, so offensive, so oblivious to its "clients"

c) I don't know of any ... any ... any .... any software developer that requires a user to fix it's software -- again sometimes taking hours, including trying to find Help like this Mozillla user "support" input -- after an "upgrade" ... simply unbelieveable, simply UNACCEPTABLE ... TO YOU FIREFOX PEOPLE OR ITS REPS ... WILL YOU PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE AND GET WITH THE 21ST CENTURY? ....

d) WHERE IS THE “SUPPORT"? .. where is the IN PERSON support that is going to fix my computer after screwing up my long input data gathering with their so-called "upgrade" ???? Two things are for sure: 1) it's gonna get fixed and 2) I'm certainly not going to spend any more of my own time and lose money from my business to fix Firefox's programming screwups. DON’T KNOW OF ANY … ANY … ANY … ANY company that does not have IN-PERSON SUPPORT … software and its functions are complex .. they need to be supported through interpersonal interaction … every other company in the world knows this … why not Mozilla???? I just don’t get it.

e) For past and present, even this "help" note, where do I invoice Mozilla for my time lost? ... where headquarters? .. accounts payable?/ I assume one of the non-Mozilla, non-person reps knows the answer to this ... surely they don't expect me to lose money by way of their "upgraded" product.

f) As one of you reps sugggested last time this happened : "well you chose Firefox, ... if u don't like problems, go use another browser" ... gee, that's good customer support ... our product sucks so use another -- geez.

g) Indeed I now intend to use another, but I will first be satisfied by Mozilla/Firefox's restoration of my computer, cumulative time lost and literal restoration of data exactly as was before the "update", and the payment by Mozilla for all my time in trying to remediate this and if any data lost, the historical time used to cumulate and enter such data.

If anyone out there in the GREAT MOZILLA/FIREFOX ABYSS knows anything about their products and their continuing failures, please respond to my questions above.

I expect someone at Mozilla or a rep thereof to, for once, BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR FAULTY PRODUCTS AND CUMULATIVE STRESS BURDEN AND MONEY LOST BY CUSTOMERS.

I AM LOSING MONEY AS I SPEAK, AS I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO MY BOOKMARKS WHICH I NEED AT-THE-READY WHEN WORKING ... SO … SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE, FIX THIS NOW!! _________ Again, not so nice, but perhaps a reader can understand my ongoing frustrations. NOTHING PERSONAL TO ANY INDIVIDUAL PERSON. I AM ADDRESSING ORGANIZATIONAL ISSUES.

I don’t want to be rude or disrespectful towards you volunteers at Mozilla Support, but I wonder why I don’t get any support on two questions I posted here.

The first one was posted almost 1 month ago ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157093 )… The second one 10 days ago ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1159272 actually a repost of the first one with a shorter and clearer explanation of the issue - I thought that might help, and there was also a banner on top of the page about an issue at the support forum)...

Essentially what I ask for is a confirmation of the issue and whether or not I could file it as a bug. Not really complicated, I thought.

Why are my questions ignored for such a long time?

If I leave my computer for longer than 10 minutes, instead of going to sleep (as it should) Firefox shuts down and the whole computer shuts down with it. Then, 15 minutes later, it will start the whole computer on its own! From another room, I can hear the distinctive F# Major chord that indicates "start up" in all Apple computers, When I return to my computer - say 3 hours later - I click the return key. Instead of waking up the computer (as it should), I hear the distinctive chord of Apple indicating "start-up" and the whole computer comes to life and access to Firefox is only through a box on the screen that says "Firefox has shut down. We're so sorry. Click on the box below to start your Firefox again" - or something to that effect. So that's what I do in order to get to work again. Why is it doing this? Grateful for your kind attention.

Since I started using my Mac system’s transparency option for menus en windows I noticed this in Firefox (see also attached images):

1. In the FF toolbar bookmark pull down menus the rendering of type is noticeably more bold and unsharp than in the menus coming from the system bar.

2. Bookmark images in the FF toolbar menus are much darker then those in the system bar menus (in a mouseover they become lighter again, more like they should be, but still darker).

The type becomes less readable (cluttered and unsharp), especially on dark backgrounds, apart from that the effect is ugly and unattractive. When transparency is turned off things look better, but the differences are still there. Safari and Chrome don’t have this issue.

I’m using a Cinema HD screen, not a retina screen.

Addition (my actual questions):

- Can someone confirm this issue?

- Is there a setting/userstyle that can correct this?

- Or can I report this as a bug?
