FF can't find this page (in help section): Why is FF44 NOT prompting me for cookies? My answer on whether to accept them or not or not or for session[cut off]

[Your initial question field cut off the quote I tried to give you to locate the problem. I hope that what remains is enough for you to find it.]

1--I was trying to find a way to make FF handle cookies the way I need it to. I clicked around in your help file until I arrived at the user submission quoted above -- which is *exactly* the same as my problem. When I clicked on it, FF said "page not found." Very frustrating.

2--Please tell me how to have FF prompt me about storing *all levels of* cookies involved in a web site on my computer. I have already tried various settings on your Options-Privacy page (including those in your help file) *and* the "View Page Info" page. When I use the settings you suggest, many web sites will not function correctly, even if I'm not ordering anything or making other kind of choices, etc.

Internet Explorer functioned exactly as I need it to, i.e.: I set it to prompt me before storing both first-party and third-party cookies. When it displayed the prompt, the options were to allow or not allow (for now), plus you could tell it always to apply your allow/not allow choice to that web site in the future.

Please tell me how to make Firefox behave like that -- of course, it doesn't have to be exactly the same buttons, etc., but the function has to be the same. As it is now, it seems you can't stop Firefox from allowing cookies, or certain types of them; I hope that's not true.

3--Lately I've been noticing ads coming up in separate Firefox instances (additional Firefox icon(s) displayed when you Alt+Tab between open programs). One of them even read my IP address. I am very upset about this. How do I turn that off? I looked in your help file and there's nothing about this. (I use a major antivirus program and keep it strictly up to date and run scans often.)

Thank you for your help.

For quite a number of months Firefox continuously crashes or becomes unresponsive. Every time this occurs, Firefox will not close, but must be forced to close. At every crash or when forced to close, I get the Windows OS error message that a plug-in has stopped working and must close. That plug-in is always the Adobe Flash plug-in.

I am on the Firefox Beta channel and religiously apply all beta updates. I also religiously keep Adobe Flash updated. However, since I do not fully trust internet notices, I never allow a software vendor to automatically apply an update.

I should also add that this scenario happens many times during every day, except those days I am not using Firefox or do not access a website that invokes the Adobe Flash plug-in.

Can you shed any light on why the Adobe Flash plug-in quits working?

Thanks for your assistance. David R Breed

When playing audio with the "Listen" button at bottom-left of google translate website box, the "text-to-speech" audio sound is rough like it have latency issue or breaking sound or the sound is choppy as in the sound don't flow smoothly but when I download the audio file .mpeg from Web Developer -> Network then play it on Media Player Classic (CCCP) it have no issues but the problem is how to fix it so that FireFox can play it smoothly?

I already tried "Safe Mode" FireFox but it does not solve it, videos with sound like YouTube videos or DailyMotion videos or YouKu videos or NicoNicoDouga videos all have no issues with sound, all is smooth sound playing, only at the google translate website for the "text-to-speech" I experience any audio sound issues.

Please help!

Hang / freeze everything (all in browser) when trying to open and select whatever in AdBlock Plus Filter Preferences window. CPU usage on firefox process jumps at 50% permanently and becomes totally frozen / unresponsive.

I have suspected electrolysis (e10s) in Firefox as source causing the problem. But I see Multiprocess Windows 0/1 (Disabled by add-ons) and electrolysis looks to be disabled.

Could you please help me to solve that issue.

By the way, this error shows in the header as "Firefox has prevented this site from opening a pop-up window." It does not say that Firefox has prevented this page from redirecting to another page, the workaround that used to "fix" the "pop-up" issue, but put the browser at risk from real unwanted redirects. Why was firefox "seeing" the redirect as a "pop-up" in the first place? In any case, it's a moot point, as now, firefox sees the gmail link as something other than a redirect or pop-up because unchecking either of these settings doesn't fix the problem.

This complaint is in regard to your arbitrary blocking of Adobe Flash Player for Windows XP & Vista. Both OS systems still work effectively on older PC's. My old HP DC5100SSF runs at 3.0 ghz faster than many duo core pc's. Adobe discontinued any Flash update for XP and Vista as well as Google Chrome. Chrome still plays all Adobe Flash and You Tube content without complaint. You are forcing me to go to Google Chrome. If they change I will go to Linux.

Mozilla products are great but not accommodating the older users is not acceptable. DO YOU HAVE ANY PLANS TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.

Recaptchas do not appear the little box you have to click to say I'm not a robot does not appear and it seems that the concensus is to upgrade my java to the current release.

That would be fine but im running a 32bit XP system and java no longer provides updates for 32bit systems.

My video drivers are up to date.

Internet explorer displays them correctly despite the old version of java so this is a firefox only problem.

the little icon to the left of the address is a green padlock which should mean that none of the info being loaded is from an insecure source so firefox should not be blocking anything.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

I've experienced several problems recently, following a Kaspersky Anti-virus update to version 16.0.0.614(e) . Apparently after the my dial-up internet connection drops, Firefox freezes, and freezes everything else. Before the connection drops everything runs fine for several hours.

If I get control back - i.e. if the browser finally closes - it wants to send a report to Microsoft - even though I wasn't running I.E. I guess its a Windows thing.

I haven't been prompted by FF to send a crash report in all this time, but crash it has. Per a FF help, I checked about:crashes and nothing is listed since January, before all this bizarre stuff started happening.

I sent the report to Microsoft since they asked. This is what was in it.

C:\DOCUME~1\Amy\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER2151.dir00\firefox.exe.mdmp C:\DOCUME~1\Amy\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER2151.dir00\appcompat.txt

szAppName: firefox.exe szAppVer: 44025884 szModName: hungapp szModVer: 0.0.0.0 offset:00000000

If I don't get control back from the hanging FF, and choose to force a restart, I notice error messages before shut down.

The latest were -.net-broadcast

followed by A.case no.3 ....

I have no idea what these mean.


I also had an event 2 days ago with a hot link in an email booting IE while FF was running. That had never happened before. target of hotlink: https://weather.com/weather/today/l/Bloomfield+NJ+07003 where it ended up: window titled: Address not valid - Windows Internet Explorer and the url: res://ieframe.dll/syntax.htm# I hope someone can shed some light on these experiences.
