Hey, so I've noticed for a few weeks now that across a few different websites like Reddit & Messenger, some words that are clearly meant to be swears are replaced with the same word over and over.

For example, I was talking with one of my friends earlier in Messenger on desktop and at some point he typed "son of a bitch". When I opened up Messenger on the same platform again a few hours later, I notice that it said "son of a boss" instead. I checked Messenger on my phone, and it didn't change the word there.

The same thing occurs on my Reddit account sometimes too, where similar swears are replaced with "boss".

I'm not sure if this is even a Firefox issue, but it hasn't happened anywhere else on my computer or phone before, and my friends and I can't replicate it on their devices either. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

I'm finding that I'm winding up with multiple instances of firefox running. I don't mean multiple windows but multiple sessions of firefox itself where each one has however many windows/tabs that I may have open managed under each instance. As an example, right now on one of my machines, I see two different two different instances when I attempt to Send Tab To Device (see Groot in attachment). This has lead to me losing session data as it seems that only one instance is managed by the restore feature. I don't consider that only one instance being restored a bug but maybe devs think different; I'm not questioning the session restore feature operation here. What I'm asking here is how to merge multiple instances down to one so that sessions restore will recover all my windows/tabs. How do I figure out which windows/tabs are with which instance? How do I know which instance will be restored?

Possible Feature Request: I don't know if multiple instances being started is self inflicted or a by product of some firefox operation encountered during use; I've not deliberately started separate instances. What would be cool is a feature that only allows one instance to be running at a time. This feature could warn if there is already a managed instance running if another attempts to start and help to prevent future possible lose of session data.

Hi. I have just been updated to version 78.0.1 (64-bit) I have a large number of .lnk files that drive my work. As of this update, Firefox no longer opens these files, instead it forces me to download the link file, and then click on the downloaded link file to instatiate it. Of course, this means that I cannot open the link file in Private mode. This is cluttering up my download folder, forcing the web page referenced into non-private mode, and causing cascading problems from there. What is the setting that will allow me to click on my bookmarked .lnk files (which in most cases open .html web pages) and open directly. If I can't do this then I'll have to migrate away from Firefox, which I absolutely do not want to do.

Thank you. Cyril

How can I know the names of elements in firefox tab context menu? (Menu which appears when we right click on a tab)

Example - If I want to hide the "sendtodevice" menu, then I will add below code to userChrome.css

/* Hide Send Tab to Device */

  1. context_sendTabToDevice_separator,
  2. context_sendTabToDevice,
  3. context_sendTabToDevicePopupMenu {
 display: none !important;

}

For send to device menu, the element names are above. For other menu items, where can I get their element names?

Hey all - been trying to troubleshoot an issue with Firefox (multiple of the latest versions, but 77 currently) on Mac OSX Catalina, appreciate any help!

Issue: Certain websites intermittently display strange behavior, such as not loading interactive content (videos/gifs on reddit, for example, displaying as static images) and some sites not loading images at all (Twitter shows empty boxes where images would be) and a few other similar issues.

Steps I've tried: - Using a private window solves almost all the issues. But disabling all extensions and plugins in a normal window doesn't solve it. (I believe I understand private windows to use the RAM for caching but use the HDD under normal circumstances?) - Enabling/disabling VPN makes no difference, nor does what network I'm on, and other devices on this network have no similar issues - Other browsers on the same computer have no issues - Malware, anti-virus, etc all are active and scan has been run a few times. - Apple's hardware diagnostic turns up no issues, and this has happened now in FF over multiple of the latest versions (not sure when exactly it started) on two different Macbooks, though the new one is from an image of the old one (maybe that's something?) - Uninstalling/reinstalling FF does not make a difference

Where I'm at: The only thing that sort of worked (But it's now stopped working on certain sites, but continues to work for others) is moving FF's profile folder, uninstalling, and reinstalling. I was lead to believe FF would then create a new folder when this happened, but it just kicked up an error for me and wouldn't start. When I moved the old profile folder back and started up the freshly installed version with the old profile folder, the problems were all solved. Though as mentioned, they are starting to happen again on some of the sites. No errors or changes have been made that I can identify, plenty of space available on the HDD, etc.

I've become a big fan of FF over the years (over Chrome), and want to stay in a privacy-focused browser, but I haven't been able to find much that seems to help this specific situation online. Any help is appreciated!

It seems most answers to this question tell you to clear browsing data and the autofill entries. That's not what I want.

Say you have a form that contains previous data, whether manually entered or autofilled. You want to use autofill for the entire form, but by default it doesn't overwrite fields with entries. How do I clear the form and start fresh so autofill can do its job?

I looked at the article about keyboard shortcuts, but it didn't say if there was a way to disable any of them. It seems often when I'm typing, instead of hitting the backspace key, I accidentally hit the F12 and it pops into development mode. I won't be doing any development in the near future (or probably any time) so I'd like to disable that one for convenience. Thanks

Every time I download a new release of Firefox (win64 german), I check the downloaded file at virustotal and check the hashes published under http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/<Version>, e.g. http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.0.1/SHA256SUMS Up until release 77.0 the hashes matched but for 77.0.1 and also the current release 78.0.1 the hashes do not match, neither SHA256 nor SHA512. For "win64/de/Firefox Setup 78.0.1.exe" the SHA256 hash should be 56cff68e3f0cb76a6404d675f7e1bacc40ebaba7bbb5cadcb4950378656ab0a6 but the calculated hash is 8e69755f257aba44b6bbe5079e17f3bff8b62ddc27de9e1c479686e9ad871dfb When checking at virustotal, the file is recognized as scanned before and the displayed hash is the one I calculated, so at least my downloaded file is equal to the file other persons downloaded. Could it be that since v77.0.1 the published hashes are incorrect?
