Must I downgrade to run Java?

I have to run Java, but I was automatically upgraded to 64-bit. If I reinstall 32-bit, will I be able to keep my bookmarks, tool bar, etc.?

Only way to add bookmarks is to drag a link to the toolbar. Aside from that, I can't add them. I also can't delete them by any means whatsoever. I've already tried the solutions listed here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/changes-toolbars-and-window-sizes-are-not-saved they didn't work. I also don't have sync enabled so that wasn't the culprit either. None of my plugins are bookmark related. I'm using the latest version of Firefox Quantum. This is really infuriating, if it keeps up I'm going to have to go back to Google Chrome.

I refreshed Mozilla, which was suggested to make it work more quickly. But I didn't understand that it would remove my ad-remover. I found that in the Old Firefox Data folder, in the Browser-Extension-Data file, and I also found 4 files of Norton security (idsafe, nortonhomepage,nortonsafesearch, and nortonsafeweb). Does this mean my security from Norton has been dumped and is no longer functioning? If so, how do I get it back into my browser? And the same with the ad-remover. I think before I refreshed there was some mention that things could be brought back to the browser if desired. Sorry if I haven't used the right terms here, I'm not always sure what they are . . .

WebGL doesn't work on intel driver, but if I run firefox with optirun — it works. Also WebGL in Chrome works on Intel too.

I have updated the favicon on a client site and yet my Firefox bookmark still shows the old favicon and will not update to the new one. I've cleared history and cache, deleted and re-bookmarked - all to no avail. One forum suggested an add on but the one they suggested isn't compatible with the latest version of Firefox, which I have.

Any ideas?

On my work computer I downloaded and installed FF 61.0.2 as a PortableApp. After starting, it has no SYNC button in its menu, so I cannot initiate SYNC with my other devices. I followed the solution to a similar question (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1214040), but there is no "Firefox Account" in the left column. But at the top of the preferences page there is a message "Your organization has disabled the ability to change some options." I found out that this has to do with the config option identity.fxaccounts.enabled having a false value. Indeed, in the about:config screen, the setting "identity.fxaccounts.enabled" has the value false and its status is locked. How do I unlock this setting?

What I already tried: Search the PC for mozilla.cfg and check for the statement lockPref("identity.fxaccounts.enabled", false).

There is a file C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\mozilla.cfg, but it does not contain the text identity.fxaccounts.enabled. In fact, there is a complete FF installation in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox but this company-managed FF-version also does not have the "Sign in to sync" button. This was the reason to install the up-to-date PortableApps version in the first place. I have searched the complete C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox directory for the text identity.fxaccounts.enabled; the only relevant occurrence is in file browser/omni.ja: pref("identity.fxaccounts.enabled", true). (The other occurrences are read accesses.)

I'm using Firefox 61.0.2 under Mac OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6.

I drive for Uber. The Uber website has worked fine for years. Then, in late July or August, Uber's website's web pages started showing up in Greek! Since then, I've been using Safari instead because I learned all the Greek I know from college math class, which isn't enough to navigate the Uber website using Firefox.

I have not noticed this effect on any other website. Safari Version 11.1.2, on the same webpage, shows me English.

Please suggest how I can research what to do to get Uber's website's webpages to render in English.

Well, as written above. I'm using these shortcuts quite often to select words when editing. Suddenly it stopped working. I'm on FF 61.0.2.

In some cases it works, in some not. Right here it works, for example. On Github doesn't.

Just for the record, FF Developer Edition 62.0b20 works fine.

This issue has been going on for a while now, through several versions since about 59 or so. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium on a Very fast computer with 8 Gigs of ram.

The issue is that when Firefox is open and I drag another open window in front of it, it leaves white lines and stripes of varying widths, like "ghost trails" from the trailing edges, across the Firefox window below. (see photo) Those lines stay there until I click on the Firefox window, bringing it to the top. Then the window's border and menu bar will repaint, but the window content itself doesn't until I click the top title bar and start to drag the window.

This only happens to Firefox, and not with any other open windows or applications at all. It also doesn't matter what open window is being dragged in front of it, whether is a file explorer window or another program app.

I've read up on other "repainting" issues, but this seems to be different and non of the other solutions seem to have any affect. Not enabling or disabling Hardware Acceleration, or turning Clear Type on or off.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

FYI... I tried adding the picture, but the little image upload box below just has the wheel spinning for the last 20 minutes. So, if the image doesn't show, then it must not have uploaded for some reason. Going to click "Post Question" now. Hope it works.

Hello,


While trying to watch "big" mp4 files, I get the error: The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support.


Smaller files seem to work fine. The problem seem to start around 3-4 GB.


Things I tried:

- Safe mode

- Refresh firefox

- Completely wipe and reinstall, the problem remains.


Since I was due for an OS upgrade, I upgraded to High Sierra. Fresh install (wiped the disk), fresh Firefox install, and the problem remains.

Chrome will load it up after 2-3 seconds. Safari gives the same error.

The file also works in all the players I tried: VLC 1.x, VLC 2.x, VLC 3.x, MPV, MplayerX.

So to recap: Fresh High Sierra install, fresh Firefox install (without sync - no addons), unable to read MP4 files bigger than 3-4 GB.

Help?
