Hi, I love my recommended by pocket on my new tab or when firefox opens. Yesterday Firefox asked me if I'd like to try a new setting disabling all cookies, I did opt in. After that my recommended by pocket disappeared. I opted out of disabling all cookies, but it hasn't reappeared. I checked about:config and the setting for recommendations is true. Please help!

For some reason, whenever I load a pdf from within Firefox, I get a new tab with the regular toolbar displayed on top of pdf files, but the document itself is completely blank (see attached screenshot). This issue just started today and I assume it was a result of an update, since I don't recall making any changes to my settings (I'm using Firefox 101.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04).

I've tried opening multiple files from a variety of sites with the same result. All of them open fine using my system's pdf viewer, as well as from within Chromium. I've tried disabling my plugins, putting Firefox into safe mode and resetting all the handlers, to no avail. Any help would be much appreciated.

I do not and will not manually close my browser session every time I want to shut down my computer in order to get it to do what it's supposed to. Linux sends SIGTERM to all running processes on shutdown. Firefox isn't handling this correctly, obviously, because if it was, then my settings would be getting respected. SIGTERM is the standard signal sent to windows that need to close gracefully and are expected to still be functional.

NOTE: Do not provide windows-specific support to this thread. I am not running firefox on windows, and I do not possess a windows computer or license.

Browsing being interrupted by recommendation to install a third-part ad blocker. Security risk?

I've just had my browsing interrupted with this recommendation to install an extension: https://torrent-protection.com/download-now/

I was viewing this page: https://www.eurogamer.net/with-the-new-ps-plus-premium-and-extra-sony-opts-for-the-car-boot-sale-approach-to-catalogue-gaming

I was taken out of the page without pressing anything and taken to this recommendation. In particular, it appears like an official Firefox message and security recommendation, with Firefox suggesting I should install this extension for my security. Sadly I don't have a screenshot but it's happened twice this morning already.

Is this really Firefox endorsed? Or are they pushing their extension with fake credentials? How is the page viewing interrupted this way and diverted automatically to another webpage?

Hello,

I have been asked to upgrade our Firefox ESR in our VDI from 32bit to 64bit. We are using Window server 2012R2.

When I uninstall 32bit and install 64bit I dont get any errors and the program runs, but if I try to go to any website I dont get any page or error message. If I do a search in the URL Bar it does give you the end URL for the search engine, but we dont see anything. I have uninstalled the program, removed AppDATA folders, ProgramDATA and Reg keys related to Mozilla, but still get the same result. If I use another user account I get the same issues.

Could some recommend a fix ?

I'm on an iMac running mac OS Catalina (version 10.15.5). Using Firefox (78.0.2) the Centriq login page (https://app.mycentriq.com/) has stopped loading recently. Firefox has been updated since I last logged in successfully. The login page does properly load using Safari web browser. So, I believe something has changed with the recent Firefox update that is preventing the Centriq login page to load. The one thing I have tried, but did not work, is to turn off Enhanced Tracking Protection for the login page. All help is appreciated. Thank you.

Hello,

Last night I went to bed and all my bookmarks were there. Today I woke up and all the bookmarks are gone on my laptop and the open tabs, add-ons etc. I am signed in. Restoration does not help (last backup is with today date). But on my smartphone I see them in bookmarks-> desktop bookmarks. How do I save them? I really don´t want to lose them.

Thanks a lot for any advice,

every time i start firefox it launches 7 versions of it , it locks up and is not reliable, this just recently started occurring.

I went to programs and settings for windows 10 and removed Mozilla , I the went to %appdata% and removed all directories that were named moziilla.

I then empty the trash can , and rebooted.

I then re-installed the latest version from the web site for x64 ( version 78.0.2 64 bit) and have the same issue. I go to websites and they lock up for 2 - 5 minutes , uses another browser and go to the same web sites and have no issues, happens when I go to google.com,microsoft.com etc...

I do not have this issue when I use other browsers

Any Ideas ?
