I got one of those pop ups, your FF is loading slow, so I said ok, then kicked me into updating sync... I had trouble logging in change my PW twice, and it worked once then not again. Soooo, questions are: 1) are firefox account and sync account the same? 2) do they have different pws? 3) do I log out of them separately or together?

4) how do I tell if I am in new Sync or old. [first time I tried there was no "disconnect" on my sync page]

Once I get accounts and PWs straightened out, I'll be back with more questions.

Sorry to be critical, but I think many of the faq and help pages are close to worthless. They are carrying too many assumptions about what you already know if you ask a question. One solution, ANYTHING mentioned [e.g. sync, account, logon, usename, etc] should have a <learn more> link.

thanks look forward to answer[s] tom

I downloaded Firefox 50 via the built in update. When I hit restart to install the update, I get a window saying that Firefox wants to install a "new helper tool" and that I need to enter an admin password to complete the update. I can't find anything about this "helper tool" in the release notes or through a google search. I was wondering just what is it? Running OSX 10.11.16. Thanks.

I've selected in the update tab under the advanced options to never check for updates, none of which I will ever want to download, never had the Maintenance Service installed, and also confirmed that the values of such preferences of "app.update.auto, app.update.enabled, app.update.silent" are set to false in about:config as I was told they should be. Yet, EVERY time I open Firefox, Firefox automatically tries to update itself, prompting User Account Control to ask my permission for Firefox to make changes (the upgrade) to my computer. I do not want to have to click no every time I'm asked this because Firefox tries to update itself WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. What can I do to stop this?

How can I see the name of the URL before I jump to it. The message in the gray bar says "Firefox prevented the web page from redirecting to another page". I don't have one in front of me but I think the button at the end says "allow". Usually when I'm downloading I have to allow the redirect or the download window won't open. There are times when the redirect doesn't seem to go anywhere. The new page looks just like the original. In some of the questions I read the change was dramatic. Those questions I read in the forum were about turning off redirect, but since FF went to the trouble of creating an option I have to believe there's a reason. On Wikipedia I read but don't entirely understand all the reasons for redirection, but I saw enough to realize that turning it off is not for me a good idea. I imagine that if FF is about to send me to the new page then it knows what the URL is. It doesn't know what I'll encounter there, but it knows the URL "name". That is to say "www.bad site.com" or "www.minor change to preserve bookmarks.com". So how do I see what the name of the site is before I allow the jump to it.

How can I override server mime types, to always get mp3/rar/sid/bin files directly to the 'where do you want to save this file' dialog?

I used to be able to click MP3 files, way back when, and Firefox would ask where I wanted to save them. Nowadays it opens a new tab with a flash player. Clicking on 'unknown' files, like .sid, .prg, .zip, .rar pops up 'This is a BIN file. [Cancel] [Save]'. It does not give me a checkbox for 'always do this'. I would like the option to edit so that some file types, such as PDF, regardless of mimetype, always get opened in a new tab if clicked. Also some file types, based on extension, always go directly to 'Where do you want to save the file?' dialog box, regardless if there's a builtin player or viewer or not. In my Firefox (41.0.1 Ubuntu 14.04LTS 32-bit) I never get the 'do this for these files always' choice anymore. Googling led me to delete my mimeTypes.rdf file, and since then even 'well known' file extensions, like .zip, are treated as BIN files and I get the Cancel-or-Save box for those, too - again without the choice to 'always save BIN files'.

Yesterday I've got a report from one company about Firefox update being blocked by their firewall. Once it's on, the update fails. Turning it off fixes the update problem, but also open their network, which is not desired. I advised to whitelist domains mentioned in article https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Setting_up_an_update_server (aus2.mozilla.org and download.mozilla.org), but seems it did not help. Firefox update still failed with "Update failed" message. So what servers Firefox needs access to during the update process so they can whitelist them?

EDIT: Just to add, before whitelisting the mentioned domain, Firefox won't be able to even find the update. Now the update if found, but fails when downloading.

I have do not have any mobile devices. But I like the Marketplace and the games. It states if I get to FF 48 it is history. I have FF 46.0.1. After upgrading it from 45, it all stopped working. I tried following the directions. But I am a simple minded person and have problems comprehending this stuff. I spent a week correcting a virus the .5 stuck in the computer

Now I would like to install Marketplace since I do not have auto updates. Can anyone tell me the easiest way.

Hi All,

I would like to associate jpeg files with the Firefox Browser but I'm not given this option. I'm only given the options of IE and the other usual ones like Windows Photos. I had this problem on another computer several months ago and by "clicking around" was able to finally do what I wanted but I don't remember how I did it. I can use IE if I need to but I want to use Firefox! I'd asked this same question before and went back to the answer given but It wasn't clear to me.

Thanks so much for your help.

today i created a new profile to FF to start over. i noticed that some config settings i set a few years ago (and kept them with each upgrade) no longer work/exist. FF seems to somehow kept them in his "memory" and they working fine. i tried to create them manually but FF doesn't recognize them.

these are the config entries in question: browser.tabs.animate browser.fullscreen.animate

so i want to know if there is a complete list by Mozilla of all config entries so i can take a look.

I'm looking for an about:config switch that can be toggled to disable Firefox checking add-on age except when starting it (I suspect this age is "app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer").

I occasionally set my Windows clock back about two years, which used to just throw security errors on new pages. Now it also disables add-ons, which is obnoxious. Even after resetting the clock and restarting Firefox, they still can't be enabled unless extensions.legacy.enabled is set to true, which seems inadvisable.

Alternately, is there a number I can reset "app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer" or another variable to that will re-enable extensions?

Thanks.

Hello,

I work with individuals who use screen readers so all access to the computer is via keyboard shortcuts rather than any "point and click" with the mouse.

At one time, I know that I could throw focus to the "hamburger stack"/"three line" open menu button via a keyboard shortcut. As an example, in Chrome, I can throw focus on the "Customize and control Google Chrome" main menu button in the main toolbar by hitting ALT. Now I know that ALT under Firefox causes the classic menu bar to appear, but I could swear that there was some way to throw focus to the open menu button via the keyboard and that, if one needed to, to use the left arrow/right arrow buttons to traverse any add-on buttons that are to the left of the open menu button.

I have tried everything I can think of, but cannot get focus on the open menu button or any of the add-on buttons located to the right of the address/search box.

The add-on Read Aloud is incredibly helpful when one is a screen reader user, but only if one can get to the button that allows it to be activated, and that button always ends up in the area to the right of the address/search box and to the right of the open menu button. The only way I have been able to activate it in the current version of Firefox is via point and click, which is utterly useless because my students cannot point and click.

The collection of buttons that I can find no way to navigate to via the keyboard are enclosed in orange in the included image. They could be for any add-ons, not the specific ones from this screen shot.

If anyone can tell me how I can get to these buttons and move among them using only the keyboard I would really appreciate it.


edit: fixed so there is no horizontal scrollbars due to spaces before start of each part.

Dear Firefox,

It's the first time I am using FireFox! Seriously. For long years I've been an avid Opera and then Vivaldi fan, unfortunately, recently Vivaldi started to become even less compatible with many sites, and I personally started to think more about security and privacy in the Web. I've found that many tech sites recommend using new FireFox as it is as fast as is configurable with its add-ons. That said, I've found this list of 13 add-ons that would help secure my privacy:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/mozilla/privacy-matters/

Unfortunately, I am no IT wizard, but a simple user, and I cannot tell if I should istall all 13 of them? Or maybe the overlap in some usages? And futhermore, should I add an addblocker to it?

I would appreciate all the info and help you guys provide :) Thank you in advance.
