I have the following entries in the 'Manage Permissions' section;

http://google.com Block https://google.com Block http://google.ca Block https://google.ca Block http://youtube.com Block http://youtube.ca Block

However, I still get a youtube.com cookie whenever I watch a video. How do I prevent this?

Aside - yes, I am aware that blocking this cookie breaks some youtube content - I'm good with that. Also, why do I need to put each website in twice? (for http and https) I can't really think of a scenario where I'd want to block one and permit the other.

I've created a Firefox Account to take advantage of Mozilla's Firefox Monitor.

I assumed that i could add several email addresses within a single account to be monitored!!!!!!!

Do i have to create an account for every email address i have!?

I don't have a lot, well i have three that i would like monitoring for sure perhaps five at most.

If i need to create an account for each email address i think i'll not bother and close this one!!!!!!

Hoping someone can advize.

So I generally keep Firefox up to date, letting the system manage itself, but this time I have had to disable this update. When I update, either through the automatic updates, or even from a fresh install of 75 (or beta 76) the browser starts, I see the lovely new address bar, albeit blank, and the browser just hangs right there. I can type in the nifty new bar, but nothing happens, no browsing to a site, no opening configs, nothing.

I have this issue on windows 7, 8 and 10 machines, so it's not an OS issue.

When an update does happen it chews up my profiles too and I have to end up rebuilding those. Only when I go back to 74 does Firefox work again.

I'm at a bit of a loss here.

Using FF52 because I don't want to lose SPECIFIC functionality I still have with that version. That functionality trumps all other considerations. Period.

In 52, I can open my bookmarks in a separate window ... that way it doesn't conflict with browser real estate AT ALL. Its behind browser window or on top as needed with a 'focus' click.

BUT ..... even if that is possible with Quantum ...

In that window, I want ALL bookmarks ... not just their folders ... to be visible, if needed. More specifically ....

...  I want to be able to open ANY two or more folders at one time (and keep them open) ... which is how I normally have this.        All in One Sidebar enabled this in FF52.       I do not want last folder closed when I open new one.     And I don't want to view bookmarks in a right hand side half of window.     (This is how FF was before 4.0, how it was enabled with AIOS by FF 29, etc.)

Please tell me if this combination of functionality is possible in current versions. Thank You.

If I want to use Google Hangouts to make a phone call I have to stay with 73.0 or earlier. With this I get the permission popup for the microphone and everything works fine. 74.0 and now 75.0 does not popup the permission query but a box appears stating Firefox wishes to make changes to Windows Firewall. Even if I select allow it does not fix the microphone problem. Imaging hd back to 73.0 fixes the problem but at what cost over time? I do have Windows Firewall set to block incoming and outgoing traffic on Domains and Private networks and Public is set to default. I also have Local Security Policy set to treat any connection as Public and cannot be changed by user. So what has changed from 73.0 to 74.0/75.0 that my firewall settings would now impede Firefox from allowing the microphone to work or even producing the popup permission query? Running Win 7 x64 all updated. I am image obsessed and they are all clean and updated with no programs on them. 73.0 and previous work fine with my firewall settings. Firefox-1.png shows 73.0 working properly with Hangouts Firefox-2.png shows 75.0 wanting to change firewall settings which doesn't help and no microphone query.

Thanks for any pointers. I don't feel I should have to lower my securty to have newer versions of Firefox work properly.

Several versions ago the bookmarking was a 1 step process (bookmark and dropdown in 1 place).

It has gone back to that once in recent updates.

However, it has been broken again, requiring "Bookmark" then "Edit Bookmark". Is this going to be fixed?

In my Cookies and Site Data, under "last used" it says there's a whole bunch of cookies being accessed every time I launch Firefox. Even if I launch Firefox with no open tabs, cookies are still being accessed when I launch.

I find this deeply disturbing! Cookies surely should not be able to activate until you start visiting websites?

Can anyone please explain how and why are these cookies being accessed?

The mp4 clip shows a bar at the bottom and on the right there's a symbol that looks like a speaker with a bar through it. There seems no way to change this. The mp4 clip will play perfectly in WMP and from the website on a Samsung phone.
