Hi:

I installed a few days ago the latest version of Firefox on my iMac. I am noticing that when I open a new window in Firefox, a tab is opened and it shows Search Pulse. I looked it up and it appears that it is some kind of adware that is dangerous and is hard to remove. I looked up some articles and they all seem to be written by some vendor promoting a product for removal. I am very concerned asking for more problems than what I have as I am not a technical person.

Did anyone encounter this adware and if so what's a trustworthy product to remove it?

I have Norton and the free version of Malwarebytes on my computer. None of these programs caught the installation of this adware.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have a problem with FireFox and it has been suggested I "refresh" it.

I have been down this road a long time ago and it was a world of hurt for me.

Why?

Well: a - it didn't fix the problem and b - there seems to be little documentation on "how to put things back to the way they were if that doesn't fix the problem".

So I am reluctant to do this as I have a lot of open tabs. From memory it is 47 WINDOWS (sessions?) of FireFox and countless tabs in each of those. I'd say the range is from 1 to...... 40 (at a guess)

Anyway, back to the topic:

I go through the motions. It does/doesn't work.

How do I put things back to normal? (Though yes that means the problem will remain. But if it doesn't work, it would be nice to be at least back to having those tabs I use where they were.)

I'm getting an error in Firefox for most videos on Android. The video will play the first time OK, but when it finishes the video disappears and is replaced by an error that the file is corrupt. At this point the video can't play again or play a next video etc and I have to reload the page. I've tried toggling various options for video and media types in about:config and tried disabling all plug-ins. No difference. I'm also getting the same thing on both regular Firefox and Firefox Beta.

Firefox - Add Colored tabs

I had Firefox version 81 and after installing version 82 in a new install on a new hard drive, I cannot change the color of my tabs anymore. I should see white tabs for the current tab but no longer when I added my userChrome.css file. I see instead a thin blue color strip along the top of the tab and the rest is grey. This shows up without any userChrome.css file.

In Firefox address field type: about:support It shows my Profile. vwy0y5ix.default-release I also have under the Profile folder this: jcueuz5y.default

I put the userChrome.css file here in my Chrome folder: C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\vwy0y5ix.default-release

It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox. Could it be a bug with latest update or what is it?

Hi!

I upgraded (automatic upgrade) to Thunderbird version 78.4.0. After that incoming emails stop working. This is not TLS version problem - my provider supports TLS 1.3, changing minimum TLS version to 1 didn't solve this problem, also outgoing emails with SSL/TLS settings works correctly. Same problem with POP3 and IMAP. I tried contact my provider but they didn't find any problem on their side. I also tried change email password without success - Thunderbird didn't ask for new password or show error, that old password is incorrect. I'm also not able to set new email account in Thunderbird. Only solution is to set security to "none" - but I don't like it

I think Thunderbird 78 is ignoring the gfx.*.azure.backends settings.

I have them set to: gfx.canvas.azure.backends settings = direct2d1.1,cairo,skia gfx.content.azure.backends settings = direct2d1.1,cairo,skia

On Thunderbird 68 (v68.12.0) it looks nice, but on Thunderbird 78 (v78.3.1) it looks bad: Picture (You must watch the pic at 100% size, the main problem is the blurred font of the mail body.)

I really hate ClearType, so I try to avoid it anywhere if possible.

Do you have a solution for this? Is there an other setting I must change? Or can you fix Thunderbird 78 to properly use the settings above as Thunderbird 68 did?

I was lucky enough to be able to buld a new PC recently, Running Windows 10 Pro on a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X rig, Asus Crosshair VII Hero motherboard and 32gb of RAM. Nvidia Gforce 1070 GPU (stand in until I can get better in the new year) Should easily be enough to run Firefox right? Apparently not.

Performance in Firefox is little better than it was on my old rig, (which was still lousy). The browser constantly freezes and locks up, not responding at all to mouse clicks between tabs or on the page. It is especially common when a website opens a file requester, such as when I'm working on my website in Wordpress, but it also happens when working with downloads or seemingly randomly too (my downloads folder is on the C drive and always accessble).

I've tried disabling all plugins (I only have 3, Privacy Badger, Facebook container and Sticky Password), I don't see what point there is in resetting the profile as I only got this computer 3 days ago.

Regards software that might conflict, I run Malwarebytes anti-malware and DisplayFusion but I've tried disabling the latter and still no joy.

I really don't want to Chrome but it's leaving me little choice here. Is there anything else I can try? Thunderbird on the same PC works perfectly.
