New Firefox user. Frequently I visit text only page- data strings are quite long. The default view for text only appears to be "Wrap Long Lines", which defeats the sorted information by line. Fortunately I found Page Style under View when I turned on Menu Bar. But when I revisit or refresh the page it defaults back to the word wrap, its getting old. Is there a way to change the default to "Basic page style"..or turn off word wrap, permanently. I looked under options but just havent seen a way to change this. Thanks

Firefox is crashing my X windows every time I try to start it. Actually so is Thunderbird, but right now I don't have time to try to reinstalll the packages, move my profile., or any of the standard moves.

All  I want to do is fetch a few bookmarks from my Toolbar. I've searched for them in the backfiles -- text of course -- and had not luck.  So I tried python to read the sqlite db's.  

On all the databases, I get the error: "file is encrypted or is not a database."

It'd be one thing if it were just a single db file, but it's all of them: cookies, places, permissions, etc.

I recently made Firefox my default browser, in lieu of Chrome, mainly just for variety and to keep abreast of things; no biggie. There are numerous problems playing videos. I recently solved one big issue, where videos would play but NOT in fullscreen at foxsports.com/foxsportsgo, by disabling hardware acceleration, as suggested under Firefox Help. Thank you. Yes, I've read pretty much ALL of Firefox's canned help suggestions on the topic of video playback problems but I haven't got a solution. I did try doing the master reset as suggested, but it was to no avail. I checked and I have the latest Flash Player plug-in, 15.0.0.189. It's set to Always Activate. I haven't problems with any videos playing when using Chrome. I experienced a number of sites and video play problems but here I'll focus in on just one: a video appears and it seems to have loaded Ok since it shows a frame (a teaser, not the 1st frame); but when I click Play it says, "An error occurred, please try again later" and there's a "Learn More" link. Following that link, the subsequent page says I should wait 30 minutes and then try playback again. That's a crock. As a sample of this problem, go to http://davidblaine.com/video/street-magic and click any of the videos. They all consistently fail for me with that singularly unhelpful generic error message!

[Edit] I just now noticed/realized that I'm on the beta update channel, and just in case that fact is contributing to these video problems, I've uninstalled v34 and installed v33.0.3. But the cited playback problem persists despite the version fallback.

After successfully logging in to Office365 (work), an attempt to click MAIL or CONTACTS results in a hang and blank screen. This does not happen in IE. After letting FireFox sit for a minute or two, the BACK arrow display shows a long list of "continue" entries as if in a loop. I have tried starting FireFox with AddIns disabled (safe mode) and get same result.

Any clue?

Hi all, I am seeing this problem since I wiped my computer and installed Windows 10 a couple of days ago. Just to clarify, everything was fine on Windows 8.1, which I was previously using.

I see that fonts are not correctly renderded, there is a lot of aliansing and they're quite thin. They are ugly. The problem is well described in this ticket. https://support.mozilla.org/it/questions/1115938.

I have tried to reset Firefox, run withot plugin, nothing changes. Here you can find values I see in about:support. I use Firefox in Italian, i have translated these values in English. I don't remember what values I had in W8.1, but my suspect is that my GPU (AMD HD7950) is not detected/enabled correctly by Firefox. http://pastebin.com/QEmYBXpp

I noticed: - DirectWrite enabled false - Assert D3D11 device creation failed: 0x887a0004 - Support for H264 HW decoding No; Hardware video decoding disabled or blacklisted

Maybe I should not say this (lol) but Chrome does render fonts properly on my machine.

Can somebody help me please? Thanks

Earlier today, my PC clock set itself to tomorrow's date. I fixed it, didn't think anything of it. It is currently correct.

Now, I'm getting the "This Connection is Untrusted" on every site. If I change the PC clock to the INCORRECT date of tomorrow, it will start working again. My BIOS clock is correct.

The only thing I can think of that I've done between when Firefox was last working and now install Origin. I don't recall if it stopped working immediately after I set the clock to the correct date (I usually work in another browser save for a few sites -Opera, by the way, has no problems).

I'm stumped. Also, if it's relevant, I literally built this PC yesterday, clean installs of everything.

Hello,

I use firefox for work and use only certain sites and this message is really annoying, especially for intranet sites. So, I really want to know how to totally disable this security type of checks.

I already spent to much time and this, I don't want to do debugging or stuff like that, I just want to totally disable any check for "untrusted sites" and yes I am fully aware of the dangers, attacks etc.

And actually I find it quite annoying that Firefox blocks me from accesing something I want. Warnings are OK, but totally blocking me, not even "I understand this, add exception ... bla bla" is not kosher.( the error is sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Thank you.

When I open a link from another application and I am using Private Mode in Firefox -- and the private window is the most recent active window in Firefox -- how can I make firefox open the link in the private window?

To clarify by example: Firefox is my default browser. I am browsing in private mode and I want to open links from an email in my OS's mail client so they open in the private window (ideally in a new tab in the private window), not a non-private window. At the moment, external links open in a non-private window no matter what.


There was a time that Firefox would do this, but it does not do it any more. I think I may have killed this function the last time I reset Firefox. Is it possible that I had changed a setting in about:config to make Firefox behave how I want it to? If so, which setting is it!

FWW. I have tried changing the following preferences in about:config with no success:

browser.link.open_newwindow.overtide.external browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction

I've also found something like this mentioned in bug reports, but I'm not sure if I understand the resolution. If I do, then the resolution is that opening in a non-private window no matter what is intentional and there is no desire to add an option to change this behavior in Firefox. However, what seems to be missing from these reports is the fact that the Private window is the active window. It seems to me that links should always open in the active window, even if the active window is a private window, if the browser is commanded to do so. Otherwise, the browser is not behaving as expected.

Technical info:

Mac OS 10.11.4 Firefox 46.0b11 (yes, the beta channel)

Firefox only sees the first entry defined in /etc/hosts for 127.0.0.1.

Basically, Firefox is not seeing the modifications to the DNS entries I've made in /etc/hosts. Chrome is. However, later I noticed that Safari is not seeing them as well. After the troubleshooting below, I fixed the problem by moving all my /etc/hosts declarations to different lines as per here: http://www.justincarmony.com/blog/2011/07/27/mac-os-x-lion-etc-hosts-bugs-and-dns-resolution/

I have no idea why that works. But it does fix the issue for Firefox and Safari.

I tried a couple of things as per this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011327

Things I tried (typing about:config into address bar): set keyword.enabled to false set browser.fixup.alternate.enabled to false turned of DNS caching.

None of these things worked, but migrating all my /etc/hosts config from multiple domains on a single line to separate lines did. Hope this helps someone.

I clicked the padlock icon in the address bar and enabled all of the appropriate permissions, but it still won't let me install the addon even after restarting Firefox. I just reset Firefox and am using the latest version.

How can I tell Firefox to sod off and let me install the addon?

Okay I know most of them are explained in the kb article linked above but not all. I was wondering if anyone knows what each one does and what are the effects of deleting them in the process. Since Firefox won't remove obsolete/replaced with/superseded files, I have to do this manually to clean up the bloat with certain versions. That and some of them haven't been updated in awhile or so so I question its current stance to keep it in the folder.
