Hi,

I have noticed for the past few days that my FF 63.0.3 version (current) removes the McAfee WebAdvisor add-on, which gets installed with the licensed McAfee Security s/w on my Windows 10 PC. I had to install it again twice in the past week to ensure I remain protected by said add-on while browsing / accessing banking sites etc. Has anybody else faced this issue and if so what is the reason ?

This issue occurs only in FF and not in other browsers I use, such as Edge, IE, or Chrome, hence the query.

Thanks.

Hello!

So, I was working on a new blog on which I'm using the Rubik font from Google fonts.

Everything was fine for several days, but today, after working for some time on it, the font just got messed up randomly (see attached image).

I added the font on a different, testing site and it shows messed up there as well, so it's not something website related.

Now, the shocking part is that it gets messed up only on Mozilla and only on the Mozilla browser that's on my Desktop PC.

I asked a friend to check it out and I also checked it out on my laptop, and the font is fine on other Mozilla browsers, as well as other browsers.

Other fonts from other websites are fine as well.

What troubleshooting I performed:

- Checked the font with Inspect Element, as it's shown here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/Edit_fonts and the font is set up correctly;

- Deleted the whole history since the beginning of time (cookies, cache, everything);

- Closed and opened Firefox again;

- Opened Mozilla in Safe Mode (hardware acceleration is disabled by default in safe mode);

- Restarted my PC;

- Uninstalled Mozilla as it shows here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer. Deleted the profile folder and everything.

- Installed a fresh copy again with no add-ons, no nothing.

Nothing worked. That font is still messed up on Mozilla, on this PC.

It doesn't make any sense, especially since it went nuts randomly without a particular reason.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem and how to fix it?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I have used Firefox for many years and am always current, as I am with Windows 10, but the last few updates have caused major problems:

1. At times I get a red screen Firefox Critical Error which usually locks up my PC. Sometimes I can free it up with Cntl/Alt/Del, but sometimes I cannot even shut down, have to physically unplug the PC. The screen says to call a phone number for Microsoft support, but this is a 3rd-party company selling software which has somehow compromised Firefox. I reported this before but no one seems to be doing anything about it.

2.Although I have checked Block pop-up windows under Permissions, I now get suspicious pop-up windows the first time I click on many web pages. If I immediately close these, I can then use the page fine. Is there something else I need to do to block these pop-ups?

MSI GE72 2QF Apache Pro notebook (stock) Windows 10 Pro Firefox 63.0.3

I recently reinstalled Windows 10 and Firefox. Before the reinstall, unchecking this box had an immediate visible effect. Now, as can be seen in the screenshot, it doesn't.

So far I've tried: - "refreshing" Firefox to defaults and unchecking the box again, - going into "about:config" and changing the value of "browser.display.use_document_fonts" to "0"

Neither of these things worked.

On my other two computers, one of which was bought new less than three weeks ago, unchecking the box does what it's supposed to do.

I'm using FF63.0.3 and a Mac with OS 10.11.6. Firefox works generically well EXCEPT sometimes when I try to save bookmarks, all hell breaks loose. I save them, they LOOK like they're saved, and I try to sync. The sync goes off in never-never land, and never finishes. Aaargh, I say, and I restart Firefox, whereby my new bookmarks are GONE! No memory of them. No record of being at them in my History. Now I should say that when I kill Firefox in this circumstance, I get an "Application not responding" error, so clearly something has already been hosed.

I should say that this happens occasionally. Not always. But it's pretty exasperating when it does, trying to recover those lost bookmarks. Normally, when I sync, it just takes a few seconds, and everything is keen.

Insights abut why, or how to prevent this? This has been going on for months, surviving re-downloading Firefox, and reboots.

A while back I started having problems with tabs hanging in Firefox. This happens arbitrarily, in any site, without any user input. It may happen with tabs that have been on the background for a long while or with a brand new tab that I just opened. I'm attaching screenshots for a tab (that was) showing Facebook and one for a new tab without any site loaded. Whenever this happens, there will be a "WebContent" process at 100% CPU. The only solution is for me to kill that process.

I'm seeing this in two different computers, work and home. The usage pattern between these two is quite different, although I do have Firefox sync in both of them. I've tried deleting my profile (rm -rf ~/.mozilla/) but that hasn't helped. I've tried using safe mode and couldn't reproduce the error, but since these crashes happen about twice a day it's hard to say for sure. There are no crash reports in about:crashes.

Any tips to troubleshoot this problem?

I found the page "about:debugging#workers"

Inside, I found that there were many sites which had installed "service workers". Many of the sites which had them installed were sites which I do not recall visiting and/or do not wish to permit to keep or store anything on my machine.

I removed most of them. Several of the ones which remained weren't running despite me currently using the site associated with them.

More to the point: how do I have Firefox ask for permission for a site to install a service worker? I poked around "about:config" and noticed that there's overall settings to enable/disable service workers but I don't see anything about per-site configuration. This seems like a significantly overlooked privacy issue.

I used Authy to authenticate my Firefox account. I also used a 2nd email with my firefox account. It also started off so nicely and seemed like the proper, careful thing to do.

But somewhere along the way, amidst various installs/deletions, my authy app got deleted/reinstalled and became out of synch with my firefox, so now the codes (or maybe they're called keys?) that it generates are not recognized by my firefox account. And I can't seem to access any backups or recovery codes that work either.

And so here's the big problem now: On a positive note, yes, my bookmarks can synch between my macbook air and my iphone 8. And yes, on my firefox account I can change the password as many times as I want. BUT, I because I don't have the right authenticator codes working now, I would just like to re-start from scratch, and I would like to disconnect my two emails that are currently associated with this Firefox account.

However, without having the correct authenticator 6-character or long-character info, unfortunately I cannot even get that far! I cannot successful complete the delete action to delete that firefox account in order to do this. So now those two emails of mine are held hostage by this particular Firefox account, and I can't use them in another Firefox account, and I can't use them properly in this Firefox account either because the 2FA isn't working well with the Authy.

I just want to disconnect them and start over, but there seems to be no way to get out of this multifactor circular hell. And also, while I am very happy to have finally found this help screen to type in my question, it took me a LONG time to even find out where to submit my question -- I had to browse through so many not appliable topics for days until I found where I could send something more than just a happy or sad feedback face. It should be much more straightforward to submit a question. Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

Firefox 63.0.3 on Windows 10

The popup claims to be a Mozilla extension, but there is no such thing in the list of Add Ons. It seems to be a redirect which opens the requested webpage and the popup at the same time. It goes away when I click the X. But every time I change pages, I have to shoo the popup way like a fly.

The only identification within the popup is " r.svrtrack.com ". It requests permission for a "monetization" feature. Avast antivirus and MalwareBytes found nothing wrong.

I tried to upload a screenshot, but the wheel just keeps spinning.

My Amazon and PayPal accounts were recently hacked, apparently using Firefox Password Manager. I've since changed the passwords for the accounts in question and also enabled a password for Firefox. Attached is a redacted version of the hacking session. I have a few questions.

2)How do I get a list of all these sites if I do need to change the passwords on all or many of them?

3) Is there any way to tell if this attack was launched from inside my apartment or remotely? I think I know the DNS ip of my home system at the time.

This problem is driving me crazy! It was working until few days ago.

I can't watch any videos from this website/domain: http://redeglobo.globo.com/videos/ Things I've tried: - private browsing - safe mode - new profile/refresh - portable version - uninstall/reinstall - older versions - uninstalled kaspersky/windows defender is disabled - HOSTS file is clean(Windows 7 x64)

The thing is, the ads load but not the video content. If the ad is long, an error message appears while the audio is still playing in the background. Another computer in the same network plays them fine. All other browsers can play these videos, this problem only happens in Firefox. I've tested a virtual machine in this same computer and then it works. Is there anything else I can do to try to fix this?

I tested a link in Firefox where the URL was started https://wa.me/123456789, which redirects to whatsapp://send?phone=123456789&text=&source=&data=. Of course, Firefox does not understand that protocol and displays the message "The address wasn’t understood". (Apparently Chrome does understand it - but that it NOT the point of my question.)

HOWEVER, since then, when every single session with Firefox is closed, a new Firefox window opens displaying once again the URL whatsapp://send?phone=123456789&text=&source=&data= and the message "The address wasn't understood".

I am trying to understand this bizarre, repetitive behavior and how to eliminate it.
