http://localhost & https://localhost both have a 60sec delay before loading. This is not a problem on Chrome -or- Safari. I believe this is an issue with Firefox & Firefox Dev Ed. trying to use IP6 not IP4. I believe there is an advanced setting that fixes this annoying issue. Firefox 63 & Firefox Dev Ed. 63 OSX 10.13.6. I've searched this support site to no avail. Please help. This makes FF useless for development for me.

Title pretty much covers it: When I try to download .exe files Firefox says "Unknown time remaining - 0 bytes (0 bytes/sec)"

I've already tried all the tips suggested here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_check-the-downloads-panel-for-blocked-downloads But none of them worked.

The only antivirus software I have installed is Windows defender. I have done a bunch of Firefox refreshes, but to no avail. And I did a fresh install of windows just days ago. I also have a lot of add-ons installed, but I was already having this issue the first time I started Firefox so it can't be them.

The issue seems to be limited to .exe files, but I'm not sure about that.

Hello,

I have two versions of a software that can open files with the same extensions.

The problem is that when I go to forums and click on links to open example files, Firefox always uses my 'older' version of the installed program.

I'm trying to get it to use, by default, the more recent one.

In windows, through control panel I've chosen the default application version to use on the desired file extensions.

So by default Windows 'respects' this default, but FireFox doesn't. Is there something I can do to change what FireFox uses?

I want vertical tabs on the right and vertical bookmarks on the left ALL THE TIME. LEFT and RIGHT are important here, and should not be disregarded. It was perfect back in firefox 4x, but then something happened. I have something like 700 bookmarks, and it takes forever for them to load from the 'bookmarks' button. I export them to html, which file I use as a home page, but the vertical list on the left is better.

Not much else to say. Error window pops up at different times. Usually soon after starting, sometimes repeatedly, others just a single time. Only thing updated on my system yesterday (5/23/19) just before the errors started was Firefox 67.0 64x and Mozilla Maintenance Service. I use the system every day and seems to me the FF update must be the culprit in some way.

Have an AMD HD 7900 3GB video card, not nvidia, if that makes a difference.

The about:config trick doesn't work on Drudge. Chrome has an add-on that blocks autorefresh, but it doesn't work on Drudge, either. Apparently Drudge is hell-bent on autorefreshing his page every thirty seconds whether you like it or not. Has anyone figured out how to make Drudge stop autorefreshing? I used to use NoScript, but since Quantum, NoScript has been transformed into a monstrosity I can't make head or tail of.

I have trouble accessing a certain app via the internet. When I point firefox to it there are many files downloaded and many MBytes. The app partially loads then hangs and does not do anything more. I have already spent a huge amount of time trying to troubleshoot and have ruled out the usual kind of trouble such as memory issues etc. I have followed many support articles on this mozilla website.

By looking at technical info and logs I see that firefox sends out many HTTP requests rapidly. Sends many out before receiving a response to one. I think what happens is there are so many responses coming rapidly from the servers that some get dropped in the local internet due to limits on the amount of traffic (congestion). My local internet is known to have limitations.

So I want to try throttling firefox, that is make it send out HTTP requests slowly or wait for a reply before sending the next request. How can I do that?

Again I want to emphasize I have already pursued many tips on this mozilla website so you don't need to suggest any of those.

I am running with ubuntu 18.04

I know, this is an ongoing thing. I also understand that there are, possibly, other programs that might interfere with Firefox always Asking to save logins and passwords for websites. I even understand why other password programs might consider Firefox to be a danger to the security of said passwords.

I, however, want Thunderbird to ask to save regardless of what another program or whatever thinks. Given the number of thoughts on this one I suspect that, eventually, you will figure out a way to simply write it in stone no matter what another program thinks.

I notice that there are command line options. As far as I can tell I can't tell Firefox, when starting, to make sure the Ask to save logins and passwords for websites is checked but could such a thing be possible? This would allow me to add a command line when I start firefox on startup. How about "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites = 1" or, say, add a line like that to the profile page? (that might even be better and then the profile file could become kindofa ini file for users.)

Thank you...............

Just a thought..............

I own and manage the administration of a Magento 2 website and there is an option within some specific products for customers to select an emblem to have engraved on the product. The customer is able to select their choice of emblem and the selected emblem is added to their Basket so we know what engraving is required. However, whilst Firefox shows the emblem choice in a drop-down menu the customer is unable to select it. However, this selection process works fine on Safari. Why can't customers using Firefox make that selection?

Hello, this appears to be a Firefox-exclusive problem as any other browser used will fix the issues listed below. However, when I am using Firefox, the following happens:

  • I am unable to like or retweet anything, and cannot follow any accounts. Attempting to do so resets them if I refresh or click off the tab.
  • Notifications do not go away even when I view them
  • Any tweets I have cannot be deleted
  • Any info on my profile cannot be changed
  • I cannot log out

I've tried multiple ways to fix this, including clearing my cache, running in Safe Mode, and removing my saved login. None of these have worked, unfortunately. I've reached out to Twitter Support, but soon realized I wouldn't hear back about specific problems at all. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?
