I stupidly update firefox (76 > 77) and malwarebytes (see subject) on a single reboot. Went to run firefox and malwarebytes gives me a ransomware alert and closes firefox.

After some grumbling and other noises, I manged to get firefox running in safe mode and disables all add-ons. Firefox runs like a dream. Started to return add-ons one-by-one and soon had a list of issues (I gave up after five add-ons as it was just driving me mad to re-install firebox after malwarebytes quarantined it.

Of the five add-ons, three have caused the ransomware alert: Ghostery (alert), Start Page (OK), No Script (alert) OneNote (OK) and Save Page (alter).

Is anyone else having issues with the latest malwarebytes update?

I have submitted a support request to malwarebytes.

I really love the new picture-in-picture option. It's especially helpful when I only have one monitor. There are a couple of rough-edges I'd like to see tweaked.

1. I resize these windows all the time to put them where they'll fit when I'm doing something else, and it can finicky to resize the window quickly. It would be helpful if the areas you can grab the edges and corners of were exaggerated. For example, if when the user's mouse is near an edge or corner of the picture-in-picture window a handle pops-up around the given area that's larger than the 1pixal-ish default handle area. I've seen similar functionality in the art program GIMP for selection boxes.

2. The way the window acts when being resized isn't very intuitive. The corners work as expected, but since the corner areas are so small I often grab the sides and that can get frustrating. I now know that when grabbing the Bight and Bottom sides of the window the Top-Left corner is anchored while resizing. Similarly, when grabbing the Left and Top sides of the window the Bottom-Right corner is anchored. That seems pretty intuitive when I type it out, what's the issue? Well, the problem comes when you are grabbing the window near the corners. If for example, I'm trying to grab the window by the Bottom-Left corner and miss (which I've done plenty) and grab the Bottom of the window. Now when I resize the window is anchored in the Top-Left instead of the Top-Right, which is the opposite of what I wanted and leads to some confusion and repositioning. What I would suggest, separate from the #1 solution, would be to break the sides of the window into three areas: Near-corner 1, Center, and Near-corner 2. When grabbing the window on the edge in one of the Near-corner areas, anchor the window at the opposite corner. When grabbing by the center of an edge anchor the window by the opposite center.

Thank you for reading my long suggestion. I hope you don't find this to be a negative interaction. I truly enjoy Firefox, and I've very excited about your new Picture-in-picture feature. I hope you understand that this level of nit-picking can only come from a place of love!

P.S: I'm very pleased to say that I did not include a third issue I had with the Spacebar Play/Pause functionality not working unless the Play button was the last object clicked on the window, because in the latest update it was gone! I want to thank whomever worked on that and let them know, someone did notice, and they appreciate it! <3 <3

Why can't Firefox leave my preferences alone when updating? FF recently updated to 77.0.1 and now when I click on a hyperlink with the middle button on my mouse it opens the link and displays it. WTF? I want it to open in the background not the foreground. That is how I had it set and been using it that way for years. Keep your fucking hands off my preferences. It is a nuisance to have to search through my preferences to find out WTF you did to them and repair it.

Hi,

I really really really hate the new address bar. In the last update it appeared in my browser and I had been able to make it go away with changing the following settings to false;


   browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus
   browser.urlbar.update1
   browser.urlbar.update1.interventions
   browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

I'm not sure if something updated between last night's shutdown and this morning's bootup but the ugly giant bar is back again and when I checked those settings in config they're all set to false. I tried toggling them true to false again but I can't get the old style bar back. I don't really want to revert to an older version as I know that's not secure. Does anyone have a way to get the bar back to how it used to be or is it time to use another browser?

Thanks!

I have a problem that has been driving me nuts for the better part of a year. All of a sudden I can only see one tab preview on the windows taskbar (Windows 10). The strange thing is I have the exact same install (I copied the profile files) on two virtual machines. One is Windows 7 Pro, the other Windows 8.1 Pro. I have the same issue on the Windows 7 machine, but on the Windows 8.1 machine it works as it should. I have added images to show you what I'm talking about. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is driving me nuts.

My desired behavior is that, when I middle-mouse-click on a hyperlink, Firefox launches a new window (not a tab) with that URL.

This is how it was working before a power interruption forced my computer to restart tonight, and my desired behavior has gone away.

The middle mouse button works for other functions; and, middle-clicking on bookmarks in my bookmark bar does launch a new window with that bookmark as expected. However, middleclicking a hyperlink does nothing.

I have browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick = false and in the options menu, "open links in tabs instead of new windows" is unchecked. Additionally I have set browser.link.open_newwindow = 2.

Can anyone help me here? This is driving me slightly batty.

I've just switched to Firefox as Chrome keeps lagging. I'm running Fedora 31 and the latest version of Firefox 76.0.1.

When I use the 2 fingered scrolling and take my fingers off the touchpad, the page keeps scrolling until it slowly slows down and eventually stops or hits the end of the page. It doesn't then stop when I place my fingers back on the touchpad, so it just carries on regardless to another part of the page. It's ludicrous as it just goes past whatever I'm trying to look at! If I keep my fingers on the touchpad it stays put but as soon as I take them off, it's off on it's jollies again.

Is there anyway to disable this? I've unchecked smooth scrolling and autoscrolling. I've never had Firefox behave like this before on any Linux distro.

I am running FF 77.0.1. This has been an issue for awhile however. In Options, under Applications/PDF, there is no Preview in Firefox option. I've tried quitting FF, renaming/moving handlers.json; but on re-opening the relevant section remains the same(action=0). I discovered about:config pdfjs.disable=false, previously it was set to true. Then in Options/Applications/PDF, "Firefox" is an option to open, and the action=3 in handlers.json, however the behavior of downloaded pdfs is the same (downloaded). (This is trying example pdfs from different sites). I've tried changing about:config security.cps.enable=false, no change. I've also seen a plugin to "fix content types" that shows up on this site, but it didn't change anything. From what I gather, action=3 should be Preview in Firefox, not Firefox, and all pdfs are being downloaded. Is there a way to fix this? Not seeing pdfs in browser is significantly annoying.

After a recent update, the highlighted text in the address bar got a lot less clear. Previous: background will turn blue, letters are white Current: background won't change, only the letters themselves change color

It a lot harder now to see which part is highlighted. I found a work-around to restore the old address bar but I guess in a recent update, this doesn't work anymore.

How can I get the older, much better look back?

Somehow I got Adblock Plus and it's been nothing but trouble. First I noticed ads that weren't there before, then it kept opening new windows about just downloading ABP and it won't keep my settings. Last week I wrote an email asking for help and didn't get a reply. This ABP Plus is a MESS.

1. It won't keep my settings.

2. Right now I have no fewer than 5 "Installation" tabs in my browser. How do I make them STOP? It started after this last time that I updated your program.

3. Right now I don't even know if it's working right. How can I go back to the last version that didn't foul up?

Today, I went to Firefox website and was going to download to plain old Adblock but that page said it was not monitored. see attachment. So I went to the Mozilla website. see attachment. When I clicked on "Recommended extensions may also be found while browsing with FF...." it took me to a page that didn't have anything about AdBlock. Over an hour later, I ended up right back where I started from. I'm exhausted and I give up trying to follow links that take me back again and trying to describe how it's taking me round in circles. How do I go back to the old AdBlock? It worked well for me, didn't make me reset every time I open my browser and actually blocked ads. Firefox, Windows 8.1 latest versions. Please reply in simple English I am a senior and techy words just make my head swim. If someone replies and I don't reply back, it may be that I can't get on the internet, the wifi here is lousy at best and most of the time, not at all. I try to get on the internet several times a day, if someone replies I will reply as soon as I can. Don't give up on me. Thanks, Bernadine

After installing the most recent update of Firefox, Firefox will no longer open with the designate homepage. Instead, it opens with a blank page. When I click on the Homepage icon in the toolbar, the designated home page will open, but it will not open automatically when Firefox is initially launched. Until the update, whenever Firefox was launched it would open with the homepage, which is what I would now like for it to do. I've checked the applicable settings and they are as they always were. Thank you in advance for any help you can give. Steve

Hi,

I've been looking for a way to force installed addons to update at launch, but haven't had much success. My real motivation behind this is to have a master profile, and use disposable copies for throwaway web browsing. I understand that private browsing mode provides something in that vein, but there are limitations in the way it has been implemented, and I would like to have an entirely separate preconfigured firefox instance for each usage.

Is there a way to do this, or to force install the most current version of an addon from the repositories and to initiate it from the command line?

Thanks,

-cb
