For many weeks now a weird block has been placed on my computer, initially followed by "Microsoft technicians" with Indian accents calling up and offering to "help," for a fee. I managed to find a way around this block, but today they have "upped the ante" and I can't get around it. Can you help or tell me where to go for help? I suspect this is beyond Comcast help.

Within the Login security option I composed 23 websites with my user ID and password. Whenever I navigate to a website whose URL is within the Login tool, to my surprise no autofill action occurs. I've used other password tools including Roboform that does autofill as its main function and expected the same from the Firefox password tool. Hence my query on whether there is some action I need to take to launch the autofill functionality. Thanks in advance for any advice.

I have been running XP Pro on 2 old Dells since 2005 linked by the Synergy Pro programme and using the Firefox browser.

For some time now there has been no video functionality on the host machine and only occasional functionality on the client machine.

Both machines have Shockwave Flash, which I have uninstalled/re-installed several times with no effect, and OpenH264 (see attached screenshots for details). I also have YouTube™ Flash HTML extension which is active. YouTube check suggests that these are operative, but if I try to view a video I just get a black screen with the error message that the browser does not support any of the available formats.

Does anyone know what the "about:config" settings should be?

I like to test my web pages as much as possible at home before uploading to a server. I do this by setting up empty drive partitions for my various sites, so that 'root level" access will work similarly on a server or from the hard drive. So, for example, a line on a page like...

<script src="/scripts/siteScripts2.js"> </script>

or

<link rel="stylesheet" type = "text/css" href="/styles/fonts/fonts.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" type = "text/css" href="/styles/spcPageStyles1.css" >

Will reference the files from the root level, as if it was on a server.This works all the time with Chrome and IE, even back to IE-8. So Mozilla Firefox must be blocking file references from local hard Drive root level. If there is a config variable or two I can set to allow it from firefox, I'd appreciate knowing about it. I'm satisfied testing with Chrome and IE, but FF is an important browser to test with.

Thanks in advance!

I have a very old laptop. It runs WinXP32. I had Firefox 50 installed, with NoScript installed too, and all was well. I decided (and now I really wish I hadn't) to wipe it all back with a TrueImage drive image I had because it had been a few months since I'd done it.

Now, all of the older versions of NoScript have been removed from Mozilla addons. There's a version of NoScript 5.1.9 on the NoScript site that won't install because it's unsigned. Setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false does nothing to help.

My laptop cannot run newer windows. No drivers. XP32 cannot run newer Firefox. I understand thinking that all old NoScripts should be removed because now they're vulnerable... but no. Absolutely wrong. I could run an old NoScript and drive image every weekend. Easy. Simple.

Now I can't run NoScript at all. How is this making me safer?

Does anybody have any suggestions as to *anything* I could do to install NS 5.1.9?

I run a computer on Windows XP. I have been hesitant to update my version of Firefox because of this problem. My last, fully functional, version of Firefox was version 42.0.x and I have just updated to version 52.9.0 (32-bit). if you need further information about my computer or anything else related to this issue please do not hesitate to ask.

My bookmarks menu drops down just fine, I have links in my Bookmarks Toolbar, and all links are very functional. I click on my Bookmarks menu and go to any link saved in my favorites then click the link nothing happens. The same thing goes for the links in my Bookmarks Toolbar. The only way I can get any links to work is to click and drag them into a new tab. This is not how a web browser should function. Can anyone please help me?

An inadvertent "REFRESH" click destroyed my plugins. Gone. No folder profile available because of browser updates - in other words, I cannot get my old profile back? My old profile with the plugins is listed in data on the desktop, however I'm unable to revert to the previous state of the browser, prior to clicking the refresh. Apparently the new "profile" is set in stone. Is there any way to get plugins back without a hassle? I've forgotten all of the names but they're vital. Now I've got to resort to hacking? Can I not revert?

What does "Refresh" mean? Old school: "refresh" means to F5- NOT destroy plugins, etc. How do I get everything back. There's no revert button for FF's new age refresh interface mistake? Misleading. DESTROY would be a better term for the chaos created in my world by the inappropriately named button. Must I get a degree in FF's new age browser speak to fix this? It's easy to get lost with all this. KISS. Any help? I seem to be lost. I'll likely have to start over...I'd had other plans for the day. There should be a warning prompt for this kind of user abuse. There is none.

I have relied on the bookmark description field to store account numbers and login ID's almost since Mozilla Firefox was first released, and have 1000's of bookmarks! Loss of the description field is a major problem.

I have found info on the net that suggests using Bookmark Notes to replace the bookmark description field. This is fine, but means hours of work to manually transfer the data. The latest info on Bookmark Notes suggests that it is possible (or soon will be) to import the description field from a bookmarks.html backup file into Bookmark Notes.

Has anyone managed to do this? If yes, please tell me how to do it!
