A while back, I accidentally clicked on "always block" in the popup when I received a notice of a potential cross-site script attack for a frequently visited site. Since then, whenever the site comes up in a search and i click on it, Firefox will not open it. Instead, I need to right-click, copy link, and paste in the address bar. I have tried to find information on how to undo this, but have been unsuccessful. Is there a list somewhere of blocked sites that I can unblock? Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

New logo at top of home page. What's the quickest/easiest way to get rid of it ?

Rant: Why did someone think it was a good idea to put a massive logo at the top of the home page ? It serves no practical purpose and it forces link icons down so you now have to scroll "!!"!! There's always ******* one isn't there !!? - someone with a crap idea who thinks the world needs to see it. How many hrs worldwide is going to be wasted today by people like me trying to undo this crud ? This isn't the first time some ignorant little ******* has forced their crap on firefox end users.

***************************** The problem When I start firefox I see a blank page (this was not my starting page before the problem occured)(Image linked).

The overall graphical window is not frozen but I can't open any webpage nor any local file. The option pages don't work either nor any of the about:XXX pages.

*************************** What I tired I cleared my cookie/cache. I tried firefox's safe mode. I refreshed firefox. I deleted my profile and created a new profile. I desactivated all my security software. I ran firefox with root privilege. Updated windows. None of that did solved the problem.

This problem persisted after I haved uninstalled Firefox, deleted my profile, deleted all mozilla directories in ProgramData, AppData, Program, cleaned up my disk with window's 10 utilitary and reinstalled firefox (I also tried a simple install unistall so I don't think I broke firefox by deleting files). When reinstalling firefox I tried both a 64 and a 32 bits install with current and older version none worked.

I scanned my PC for malwares, nothing found. I checked my memory as suggested in a troobleshooting page, (no problem found).

Firefox DOES WORKS in window's safe mode.

************************************ Observations I noticed via my firewall that firefox don't even send any package to the internet if I try to acess a website. Firefox does however acces 127.0.0.1 (at least it asks for permission). Firefox doesn't close if I use top right red cross, it does close if, in task bar I right click/close all windows or if I exit within the "three horizontal bar menu" I precise that my connection is ok and that MS Edge is working fine.

I repeat, Firefox works in window's safe mode.

I would really appreciate your help as I can't find any other thing to try.

Hello

Don't know if you can help with this problem: this week reCAPTCHA on sites where I need to find out when deliveries are expected keeps on and on asking me to verify squares with traffic lights, buses etc. etc. I use Firefox but have also tried with Safari and Edge problem is just the same. It seems to me that the makers of reCAPTCHA should be told to sort out their program as it is affecting a number of browsers. Could Mozilla/Firefox do this perhaps? Meanwhile, if I'm wrong about this and if anybody has a workaround please can you let me know.

With many thanks.

First, when i go to youtube, and sign in, it will show in some panels to sign in, even though im signed in in the top right of youtube, and youtube doesnt fully recognize that im signed in, and because of that, i cant add videos to playlists(because youtube thinks im not signed in). However other browsers dont have this problem and they work perfectly. I have tried with all the extras unninstalled (they were blocking ads and stuff) and it still happens. Second problem is not that impactful, but sometimes when i open a new tab my monitor turns black, with a big thrust of white in the center appearing and dispearing rapidly, and monitor only comes back from black when i click away, or by waiting a considerable amount of time. I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, and it didnt fix any of the issues.

Just purchased a Windows Surface Pro and setting it up to be the same as my Windows 10 Laptop. I have synced my Laptop which I would understand to mean that my bookmarks, ID/passwords etc are copied to a master in their cloud. Signing in to Firefox on Surface Pro and turning on sync does not give me the same setup as the PC.

1st question: How does Sync know that a device should be updated to match the cloud version, or the cloud version should be updated to match the device? If two devices are made different by daily actions, and both have sync turned on, does that make duplicates on both devices?

2nd question: I was expecting to see my pinned tabs, and my bookmark folders with contents be synced as well but not sure that is included.  ?

A few pages have scrambled printer fonts, not all. Tried troubleshooting with Reset Firefox printer setting and Reset all Firefox printer settings not even thinking about a refresh!

How to I clear the parameters that determine how the printer fonts are controlled. Seems like something is corrupted. Does not scramble most pages. Simplify Pages prints the same page correctly. Same pages print fine in Edge. document attached on how firefox prints the page and how edge prints the same page. Can't be the printer driver.

Ever since evolving past the 70's version, "Print to PDF" from Firefox has had sporadic problems. I have now three times "upgraded" to various 80's series releases and though sometimes Print to PDF works, it more often fails. Once again i have "downgraded" to a 70's release, and i do not experience flaws.

I have posted at least twice of the issue, yet no one is able, or has done anything, about it. Fine. But to keep getting that annoying "New version available" notification is as irritating as malware, especially since "upgrading" will cause the system to malfunction, and the choice to spend time by your programmers to eliminate a safe internal method to disable this is very confusing; why was the decision made to eliminate the option to turn that annoyance off, creating an annoyance when the only time one would turn upgrades off would be when there was a malfunction with a release?

I did find the external registry fix, which, compared to pre early 60's releases having the setting, was a waste of my time to find, but more importantly, added an outside element of a breach of security. I do not understand the reasoning in the development team's thought process.

Hi all, my daughter has found out that with Pinned Tabs she can work around the site-specific time limits I have set inside a parental control product (on windows10).

Normally the parental control just closes tabs that display a forbidden or over-used web URL. But as Pinned Tabs have no close button it seems to fail. It only reports "time is over".

Is there a way to disable Pinned Tabs ? In about:config maybe?

Thanks and best regards Daniel

As I have a bunch of tabs open, whenever I restart my computer I don't wish to lose all my tabs. Yet every time I restart, I am unable to restore the tabs/windows that were previously open and I have to resort to searching through my history. Is this a bug with Firefox?

All the other "solutions" I've seen don't restore what has already been closed, but they are more preventative measures for the future. It should work the same way Chrome does. I haven't changed any default settings either and I wasn't browsing in private.
