Everytime I open Mozilla Firefox it shows a lightbox on the screen just saying CONTINUE. I just want know what is that because it wasn't there before and doesn't start to appear after a upgrade, just star all of the sudden. Is that normal, is that a virus, is the OS doing that...? Do I have to worry? What is it? Thanks.

I have a new macPro - no problem. I have an older macpro that I my grandkids use for games, and I use occasionally to check email, weather, etc. The new update says Firefox will "protect" me from using the outdated browser... Since I don't really see any advantage to me and this last bit is a serious disadvantage to me, I am leaning towards skipping the update. Problem?

It's getting more and more complicated for us "oldies". We're not adolescent typists on a so-called smart phone - and we're going to suffer when Kiwibank ditches cheques and we have to learn all the ins and outs of on line banking. We were brought up in the days of times tables - pocket calculators weren't invented then. But it's overwhelming when we get all these instructions on setting up for the likes of "private" and "non-private" browsing, and the myriad of "apps" and "extensions" and whatever. If Microsoft Windows and Browsers of this day and age require a degree in how to use them, then I'll see if I can find a guru who can install Linux and a real simple Seniors Browser. Not one that sends you a host of emails on "useful hints" and "Things to do in Europe" if you happen to book and on-line ticket to see your grandchildren in Switzerland. Us 80's plus need something simple and safe to use. Forget all the gadgets. Can you re-shoe a horse - or tether one to a single furrow plough?

Firefox 67 breaks shared profile between Ubuntu and Windows10

Hi,

I use Firefox on a Windows 10/Ubuntu 18.04 dual boot system and share the profile of the Windows partition to use the same Firefox information with both installations. After upgrading the Firefox Win10 version to 67.0, I get the error message uploaded as a picture. The Ubuntu Firefox version is also 67.0, so there is no older version that modifies the profile information.

I found this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1259820 describing a similar question, and the chosen solution to delete the compatibility.ini from the profile folder revived the profile. However, this is not a permanent solution. Using Ubuntu Firefox after Windows Firefox is unproblematic, whereas the error reappears in Windows Firefox after using Ubuntu Firefox. I have to delete now the compatibility.ini every time I use Windows Firefox after Ubuntu Firefox, which is rather annoying. Obviously, the Ubuntu and the Windows version of Firefox 67 interpret this .ini file differently. Is there anything planned to synchronize both versions of Firefox 67 better? Or any other solution that solves this problem permanently? And no - I don't want to store my profile information on an external Sync server. Thank you for your time reading this. Any help is much appreciated.

I have Win 8.1 and just upgraded to Firefox vs 67.0 64 Bit which is, and has been my default browser for years and now can't open links in Outlook 2010.

I don't use IE so why would that even help?

I had no problem with the links in vs. 66...so should I go back to an earlier version, and is that even a selectable item(?) and from some of the responses, that didn't even help.

Logically, I'm leaning to go back anyway to earlier version but was hoping someone can provide some info that CAN AND WILL FIX THIS PROBLEM...any help will be greatly appreciated! thanks

After updating to Version 67 it took 2 minutes for the Mozilla starting-page to open. So I deleted Firefox and reloaded it without success. I deleted the add-ons, the Cookies, Caches to no success. Finally I found that my profile could be the reason and I deleted the whole Firefox-Folder completely to start from anew. When I download the new Version comes "either you have no profile or the use is denied" and everything stops. If someone starts the first time with Firefox he would not have a profile either. So how can I get back using Firefox as my browser again?

Thanks for your tips and help in Advance.

Until very recently (last couple of days), whenever my cursor was in the address bar, eg after pressing Ctrl+T to open a new tab, I could press the TAB key on my keyboard to move straight into the search bar. So if I wanted to Google "apricot" I would do Ctrl+T, TAB, apricot, enter.

Suddenly, the TAB key has started behaving differently. It now puts a black box around the 'downloads' icon on the first press, then around my favourites on the second press, and only on the third press does it move to the search bar: see video here https://youtu.be/d5yryfr4jLQ

Can anyone help me go back to the good old days?

I know most people are trying to stop location services permissions, but I like letting sites like Yelp, etc, know where I am so they can use "current location." I have tried to use the privacy settings to add websites that I allow location permission, but that part of the site doesn't work for me. I can't add any websites in the box. I'm very smart, but I can't figure this out. I need a super intensely simplified step-by-step lesson to figure it out. I've been trying for 2 weeks on my own and am ready to dump firefox for chrome, where I can allow location permissions very easily. Please help me. Thanks.

Since the "add on" issue with FireFox Moxilla a few weeks back, the "save" buttons (both in the browser, which is an add on; and on their website, which is not any type of browser add-on or extension) stopped appearing. All of the pinterest emails are not clickable to save a pin. Website auto "pin this" buttons are not working. An update didn't work. Clearing cookies, cache, temp history, etc. didn't work. This happened specifically after the issues Moxilla had with firefox add-ons/extensions which was fixed so quickly most people didn't even know it happened. When I visit Pinterest.com the page loads the header, but the rest of the page is blank. This happens on every synced FireFox device except android. Likewise on a computer-based Moxilla FireFox browser, pinterest emails do not have any "save" buttons. So you can receive the email, click through to an item of interest, but you cannot save it. This is something very odd.

Hi,

The subject two inputs are for developers if they are reachable. I found a Firefox feedback process once, but cannot find it again, since the organization prefers to not be contacted.

On Firefox version 67 now, and I suppose 68 will be out in a few days in light of what we've been seeing.

DuckDuckGo is an add-on and my homepage. Searches from the page and address bar result in a a crashed tab error page; this behavior is new as of this afternoon Pacific Time. I guess it applies to 67 and not 66, now that I think on it.

Off to Bing.

Have a good day, Matthew
