I've been accessing the following website for years on Firefox with no issues. It uses Flash, and I've never had a problem playing the game until Firefox updated to 64.0. Now when I click to play the game, it says it is loading, but it never does. I have disabled any ad blocker or other similar add-on, but it doesn't help. I keep Flash up to date, and have even unchecked the box in the plugin that says "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" in case that was the problem, but that hasn't helped.

I can access the site and play the game on Chrome without a problem, but not on Firefox. I'm not the only one who uses this website who is having this problem.

Any ideas what is going on? I don't want to revert to Firefox 63.0.3 if I don't have to, but I'd prefer to play this game in Firefox if possible.

Thank you!

I purchased a new laptop running windows10, and had the tech install Firefox (free version) as my antivirus software. I did the same thing with a new desktop PC six months ago. Without any add-ons or extensions, ads never pop-up, display, or otherwise run on my desktop. However, on the new laptop, with the same Firefox settings, I am seeing ads on many sites. The ads are unrelated to the site I'm visiting, and in some cases are a bit objectionable. I don't understand why the same settings don't produce the same results in Firefox on different computers. I've read about installing extensions or even another product to block ads, but if I didn't have to do that on the desktop, why do I have to do that on the laptop?

I have Notifications blocking set to all websites. However, I was surprised to come to the website below and have a Notifications permission request pop up. What's the deal?

https://www.tckpublishing.com

Also, related - in Preferences, under Content Blocking, it says:

"Heads up!

                   Blocking cookies and trackers can cause some websites to break. It’s easy to disable blocking for sites you trust. Learn how"

But when I click on the Learn how link, it doesn't tell me how.

When I click on the Manage Exceptions button right next to the Content Blocking heading, I get a pop up that says, "Exceptions - Content Blocking" and "you have disabled content blocking on these websites." Yet there's no way to add any URL provided there.

When I go to a website that I want to not block tracking on, I click on the lock or shield symbol, and click on Permissions and am taken to the pop up and again cannot add this website address.

How am I supposed to set any Permissions if this functionality doesn't actually work?

Updated Firefox to 65.0.1 yesterday now a number of websites do not work including firefox support site (Will not let me log in, had to download Opera just to post this issue.)

Examples include Facebook not loading all content or allowing me to follow links (Links do not work at all.)

Youtube can't play single videos (Again acts like link is not a link.) Playlists will somewhat work if you right click and open link in a new tab but only play about 5-10 seconds of a video before moving to a new one for another 5-10 seconds of play while also taking a lot longer than normal (more than the usual 2-3 seconds from before the upgrade) to start the next video link 10-15 seconds.

Would add info from "about:support" but it will not allow me to attach a pdf (The only way I can do that since "Automatically add" button reqires using Firefox and I can't right now(Not logging in.)

As stated before no log in ability on the support site here.

Most other sites I have tested are missing content or links randomly work or not with no real reason, at least any that I can figure some work some don't and some work some times but not others.

I have done a full un-install and re-install to see if that had any effect and it did not. Also this is the only change to my computer in a little over a month, just the update to Firefox 65.0.1.

I have been trying to solve this for days now.

My bookmarks keep duplicating out of control. I mean they will go from 500 to 10,000+ in a matter of minutes.

I did have sync running, but I have shut it down in case that was the problem, and it's not restarted now.

This problem is happening on 3 of my computers that were sync'ed. None of them have sync running now, yet they each still have the problem.

1) I deleted all duplicates by hand and then exported/backed up that version without duplicates (well call that the clean copy).

2) I have tried verifying the integrity of the bookmarks database through the troubleshooter. Each time the problem starts happening again after a few minutes. - I have done this on the current bookmarks - I have done this after I have deleted all bookmarks right before restoring, then again right after I restored the clean copy. - I have deleted all bookmarks, closed firefox, deleted the places file, then restored the clean copy.

3) I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox - I have done this then and restored the clean copy

4) I have created a new sync account and tried that, but that did not work either

When in safe mode, the bookmarks do not duplicate. But outside of safe mode they duplicate exponentially. I don't know what else to try.

I just did a Refresh to my Firefox 65, 32 bit. My OS is Windows 7. I held onto the previous legacy version as long as I could. When I did upgrade a month or so ago, a few legacy add ons carried over. With the refresh I just did, I lost one that I cannot recover from. The mailto allowed me to connect to an online website where I email from. Now I cannot assign that. The new mailto option only allows applications, not hyperlinks.

I used to be able to hit the mailto button and go to: https://webmail.centurylink.net/mail?view=compose&to=mailto%3A%3Fbody%3Dabout%253Ablank%26subject%3D#2

I think it was an add on I had. It seems that now that feature is incorporated into Firefox, with less flexibility.

I would like to find that add on and install it. I have researched and tried to adapt with the Firefox version but I cannot have the mailto set up the way I used to. I have visited the github site where legacy add ons were saved, but I haven't a clue how to find the mail to add on I used to have.

Thanks to this loss, my efficiency for emailing has regressed back to copy/paste instead of a easy click button.

Greetings and felicitations!

Deprecating the ability to change keyboard shortcuts (read as: disable) is probably the most abhorrent thing to me about Quantum. I am sick and tired of losing work because I hit delete and Firefox randomly decides to go back a page rather than deleting a character in some text I'm writing.

Is this even possible anymore?

Please don't suggest the two addons out there that function in 65+. They simply do not function for what I need.

What I would like, if it is possible, is to know where all this is in config. I found how to disable browser.backspace_action, but I'm not sure where to look for the others.

A list would be great, or even a prefix/word to search for in config would be really helpful.

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

PS - Why does moz seem so bizarrely intent on NOT allowing users to change these?

Since upgrading windows N with the windows media pack, Firefox immediately crashes on opening various different websites - mostly video ones (Netflix, any youtube.com/watch...) but also mozilla support. Prior to installing the media pack, youtube videos would play but Netflix would not (but no crashes).

Problem persists in safe mode, with DRM content allowed and not, and with hardware acceleration disabled. Flaser player and video drivers are installed and up to date; Microsoft Silverlight is also installed.

To correct a problem in MS Word, Microsoft Support created a new Windows 10 profile on my laptop and reinstalled MS Office. Firefox is still on my laptop in the new profile, but its appearance is changed. It has lost all the profile data from the old Win 10 profile. I have looked at the articles under "Manage preferences and add-ons" but I don't think they solve my issue because I don't have a backup of my Firefox profile. Or, if I still do, I don't know how to find it on the old Windows profile, which is still on my laptop.

I had a lot of bookmarks, add-ons and preferences that I would like to retrieve for my browser. Is that possible?

So... I've had a few minor issues with Firefox in the past, but this is by far the most bizarre, and as of yet the only one that's completely broken it. The best way I could describe it is... the tabs bar, where all the open tabs in any given window are located, is usually located ABOVE the search bar, right? Well, the search bar decided to rebel and go to the very top of any windows I have open, effectively merging with the tabs bar, completely breaking the UI and rendering the browser more or less useless. I can almost fix it by just clicking & holding on any open tabs and fidgeting around a bit, but it goes straight back to its usual broken state as soon as I click back into the tab.

FWIW, this only happened once my PC restarted to automatically update Windows at like 2:30 AM or whatever time I set it to, so as far as I can tell I had no direct hand in causing this. Also, as you could probably gather by my previous sentence, I'm using Windows 10, if that matters. Feel free to inquire about anything else, since while I don't mind using Chrome for a bit, I would like this problem to be fixed ASAP since I do prefer Firefox. I've searched around a bit and haven't found anyone else with this exact same issue, so I don't know if it was caused by a Firefox update or what. Also, I would just LOVE to include some screenshots to better explain the problem, but frankly this stupid little upload image button is being real useless right now. The screenshot thing within Firefox apparently doesn't allow you to capture the search bar or open tabs, and when I try to upload a screenshot using a different program, it just endlessly says "uploading image." It's just a friggin' .png file, why are you having so much trouble uploading it?! Oh well, I guess today just isn't my day. Regardless, hopefully my explanation of the issue is enough for you to understand what's happening.

I recently updated FF to the latest stable release (v65.0.1, 64-bit Win10H) and while examining the program files listed in the Windows "Programs and Features" discovered there are two (2) separate entries for the latest version with slightly different dates a day apart -- why? If I use Windows Explorer to examine the specific installation directory for the executable, I can verify there is only one.

More importantly, how would I clean up or correct the system -- would that occur normally the next time I upgrade (wait-and-see is my preference at present), or must I gyrate the user profile to just have a single program entry?
