Hi! I am looking to disable the option to start Firefox in safe mode, as it bypasses the extensions I have installed that I want to be customizing my Firefox experience constantly without my will to end them (as I have an Internet addiction problem). I have seen previous threads that describe how to disable safe mode (such as the one below), but I do not have the capacity to understand the computer jargon. Please help me remove the possibility of starting Firefox in safe mode--thank you!

Description of how safe mode option can be removed: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=1879965

I wrote an application that dynamically creates report and (using the printElement jQuery plugin) prints them to either a printer or to PDF.

$('.print-container').printElement({

   pageTitle: $('div.edit-title').text(),
   overrideElementCSS:[ 'print_css', { href:'css/print.css', media:'print' } ]
});

This has worked well for 5 years but, over the last weekend, even with the config set to print.print_bgcolor = true, no background colours or images are being printed any more. This happens with printing to a printer or to a PDF file.

Hi everyone, experiencing a problem with firefox on my Macbook. When I try and drag & drop an image from file to an online uploader, it crashes my entire OS.

The file shrinks down to thumbnail size when hovering over the drag & drop space (as normal) but then gets stuck at that point. Then, whenever I try to click on anything at all (start-up menu, a different program) the thumbnail just appears under my cursor, I cannot click away and the whole OS becomes unresponsive. My only out as far as I can see is a hard reset.

Has anyone else experienced this problem and how do I fix it? Thanks in advance for any input.

EDIT: the problem is also present when uploading conventionally. The file uploads but then my cursor is stuck in a form of "force select" - for example if I move it over another program it'll just then drag that program around with it and refuse to drop it, thus screwing up my entire OS. I even managed to CMD+Q quit out of Firefox this time, but once initiated the problem doesn't disappear.

I have a valuable history of browsing in Safari that I would like to bring over to Firefox. The only solution I have been able to find after an hour of searching is this product; iMazing. It appears to do just what I need, by exporting the Safari Browsing History from the database to HTML which it says can then be Imported into Firefox. Sounds good, but I would prefer to not have to buy a 3rd party product. Any clues? Thank you.

So I somehow broke mic permissions in discord on firefox. I can not get it to show the pop up to let me allow the mic, whenever I try to unmute I get this https://i.imgur.com/TkFKwpj.png (refreshing does nothing)but it never pops up and doesn't list mic permissions,only autoplay sound when I click on the lock icon. In permission settings under microphone discord isn't listed. I also know it isn't a discord thing because it works fine in the app, just not within firefox. Tried clearing cookies/site data for discord too, nothing seems to make the pop up appear. Also tried updating firefox, rebooting pc, nothing seems to do it.

Really at a loss of what to do to get it working.

I refreshed Firefox to fix a problem of links not loading to no avail so I decided to reinstall. First I copied my profile folder. After reinstalling Firefox I was able to import my bookmarks from a previously exported backup. Here's the fun part...I am unable to find the new profile folder so I can copy my old password files into it. The new folder has only 6 folders and 1 file in it whereas the old profile folder had about 19 folders and 52 files. The 2 files I need to copy back into my new profile folder are logins.json and key4.db. So far I have been unable to Google any helpful support articles so I decided to try Mozilla support directly. I am desperate to restore my old files because if I have to manually copy passwords from a different Firefox installation it will take a loooong time.

By the way, the original issue of Firefox not loading has occurred on my other computer as well. Is the new version broken?

Firefox 67 no longer warns about closing tabs to the right or all other tabs.

Doesn't seem to matter the number, and browser.tabs.warnOnClose and browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs are set to 'true'.

Hello, I was wondering why I have to install extensions in order to prevent popup to appear. Right now, of course, popup are disabled in the option menu, I have two Adblocker (Plus and Ultimate and I need both, despite the subscriptions are almost identicals), Ghostery, Popupblocker and Behind the Overlay, but in some cases these are still not enough. I have to accept cookies (but not from third parties) and when I close the browser, everything is going to be deleted by custom settings. I do not have any malware/virus, I don't install random programs, I don't have any sidebar. I keep all the software up to date. Any suggestion? Am I doing something wrong? Thank you.

Cheers.

Good day all,

When I try to send email using Outlook web from the Firefox browser, I often get a failed to send error message. When I deactivate AVG I'm once again able to send a message. This doesn't happen when I use other browsers like Chrome or Internet explorer. There seems to be a compatibility issue with Firefox. Anyway around this? Thanks.

I run Firefox on several different machines and OSs. I have been using Firefox Sync for history and bookmarks, but not logins. I'm interested in using it for logins as well. I have many logins stored on each Firefox that I use. Some of them will overlap. Some of them will overlap *and* be different (because some are out of date). I do not want to lose any logins.

If I enable logins in Firefox sync, what will happen to my existing saved logins?

What happens to clashes between logins saved on the different instances of Firefox?

Thanks.
