I have used and updated Firefox for years. I am now on v79. And in my prefs.js file (about:config) there is tons of old crap. Things like references to old addons which cannot even be installed any more and were removed during updates, prtiner setup stuff for printers I no longer own, and something that is causing the rendering of chase.com to be messed up and the site unusable in FF.

Is there some reasonable way to clean up the prefs.js? Using about:config does not seem to remove entries, only reset them to default. If I exit FF and edit the file in my text editor, FF doesn't work right when re-started - I have to restore the profile folder from a backup.

There must be some way. Any help/tips?

Thanks

Hello and thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

For many years, I have had trouble with the rendering of https://www.chase.com/ in my Win10 Firefox install (see attached). This does NOT happen in my wife's install. I have been a user for a long, long time and this has persisted even through the update to 79.0 today. On the same machine, it renders fine in Chrome (see other attached).

As I said, the problem does not happen on my wife's computer and since it works in Chrome on the same computer I know this must be something wrong with my Firefox install. I have tried running with --safe-mode and the problem persists. I have repeatedly cleared site data/cookies and even the entire Firefox cache. The problem persists.

While I suspect there is still something hanging around in my profile that is causing this, I don't know what it is and I am loathe to erase my entire profile and start anew.

Any suggestions on how to get to the bottom of this mystery?

Thanks

Hello,

I have the latest version of Firefox(?) on my 2014 Macbook Air. I'm using El Capitan 10.11.6 - I'm afraid to upgrade to the latest version. When ever I open Firefox, the following extension pops up in the search window: http://search.anysearchmanager.com/?_pg=32305279-EF96-58E8-AD0D-5C619AE6B900&affid=A112H_set_bfr_H&type=h. I have tried several trouble shooting techniques, but I can't find it listed in my files or extensions, so that I can delete it. Also, I have Webroot, but when I do a scan, it doesn't show up. Thank you in advance for any assistance or information you can provide.

Regards, Marie Hatosky

I take my privacy very seriously and have disabled a large number of Firefox features which erode my privacy, including geo.enabled, dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled, dom.battery.enabled, and many more.

Today I've just found a setting I've never noticed before which makes me really nervous: geo.provider.ms-windows-location

Can anyone please tell me what this does? Is it new? Why doesn't Mozilla have a page/resource explaining what all the preferences do and how to use them?

I am trying to emulate the expected behavior I have from Chromium based browsers. I want my two email accounts to open on startup but then when I open a new window, for just the blank tab to open (Firefox home). There doesn't seem to be a way to do that. I can make them my "home" pages so that they load on startup, but then when I open a new window, it opens both of my home pages as tabs in that new window. Any help? See attached screenshot, is there something I'm missing or is this behavior just not possible in Firefox?

As the title indicates, copy/pasting does not work.

I'm on Windows 10, have installed Firefox about two days ago (I've recently switched to it) so the version of FF is up to date. I've looked up a few fixes before posting and they didn't work:

- Tried booting FF on safe mode and it didn't fix the issue - it clearly isn't caused by an add-on (and I've never had this issue in my previous browser with nearly the same add-ons installed). - other people seem to have had the exact same issue multiple times and it's lasted for years, so it's clearly a problem on FF's end.

Here is the issue described more specifically: Copying things from a tab from FF and into the online version of Word does not work - when I try to, the intended selection: - disappears a few seconds after I've pasted - or it does not appear at all - or when it does, it erases the entire sentence it was pasted next to it, which you can imagine is absolutely bothersome.

I've also tried to copy/paste statistics from a site called archiveofourown.org onto another FF tab. - What ended up being copied is only the last character of the entire content I was trying to paste, which I think suggests there's some issue with what's contained in the clipboard.

I'm mentioning these two websites because I'm guessing that something about them is probably conflicting with the copy/paste feature, however I'm hoping no one will have the gall to tell me it's those websites' faults and that I should just stop using them.

When pasting (while having hopefully copied the former selected content- and no, it wasn't the case), it always pastes the content which was last copied into the clipboard prior to that very attempt, which shows that the clipboard's content was not refreshed with the last selected copied one.

I'm surprised to see that FF has had such a glaring issue for years and for many other users, and updates have never given a fix for it. I'd like this issue to be fixed properly, because I'd hate to have to switch back to my previous browser. FF sports so many nice features that other browsers don't have, and it'd be a shame to ruin the experience with a bug so basic as the copy/paste feature being broken.

This cussed thing pops up every time I fire up my desktop PC which runs Windows 10. It gives me two choices. 1. To click on sentence that says something like, "Continue without supporting ads" or 2. To go through a long process to shut down Ad Block so they can fill up my CNBC pages with ads about crap that I will never buy online.

Help! I want to get rid of that pop up permanently!

Hello,

A few days ago I reinstalled win10. I backed up my firefox profile to keep all the data I had. After reinstall everything works except youtube. I can log in as usual, I can access my youtube settings, subscriptions etc. but I can not post comments, subscribe/unsubscribe to a channel or get notifications. When I try to subscribe/unsubscribe youtube gives the error "your session has expired, please login" and when I press the login button in the window it forwards me directly to the homepage of the channel I was trying to subscribe.

What I have tried: Delete cookies and data: nothing Uninstall firefox completely and delete all the data in user appdata folders and reinstall clean with a new profie: nothing

Any ideas? The same youtube account works perfectly on Chrome. I can post, subscribe, and get notifications.

This has become very frustrating since I use firefox since 2007 and I do not want to switch to another browser.

Thanks in advance.
