Out of the blue I received a message stating I was being attacked on my Mac by software that maybe Ransomware. I was asked to close and delete the files.

I run Mac Os 10.14.6 and have never had any previous problems. After quarantining these files I quit Firefox and then could not open it. I therefore deleted the .app and reinstalled Firefox 75. I can only start up Firefox by using the Terminal Command window using the Profile manager. I created a new profile but cannot see my old profile within the Profile Manager. I can find the old profile under Profile's in Application Support/Users. So despite having a new default set created, I still cannot get the Firefox.app to open by clicking on it. I have now deleted the old profile and still cannot open the Firefox app from the dock or applications folder.

help please!

I could never find out why I got the message "Ransomware may be trying to access my computer", except two files have appeared in my bin; Edgar Poe Murder and Righteous Games.

Any help appreciated.

I am living in Spain, and browse in English. Often when I do a search with Google, although the result is linking to a page in English, the final page is in the one for the Spanish market (es_Es).

A good example is the Seagate website. Even direct links from other forums are redirected to their Spanish version. Also, after cleaning cache for Seagate sites, restarting, AND trying it in a Private Window.

My config: macOs 10.15.4 set to UK English. Firefox Dev Edition 76.0b3, (language same as OS) with: - Privacy & Security: Enhanced Tracking Protection > Standard - Privacy & Security: Locations > "Block new requests asking to access your location" checked - about:config > geo.enabled set to false. Google Search Region Settings are set to "United States". –

Thank you!

I have a problem with Firefox New Tab content. As far as I am concerned there should be Firefox logo, search bar and my most popular sites. But only search bar is visible. I have checked the Popular checkbox under settings, but nothing seems to be working. Attached is a screenshot how it looks like. I tried restoring settings to default ones, but to no avail. Any tips here?

It has been a while since i visited the website but Other browsers are perfectly able to open it now. - Cleared history and cache and cookies. - Check for the ipv6, DNS prefetch and No proxy fixes in firefox. - No malware found via BItdefender, Panda Cloud and Malwarebytes.

It specifically fails to load with the following error code: An error occurred while processing your request. Reference #97.15e51cb8.1587195116.5338f60

How do I disable the Browser Console box which opens on top of my homepage each time Firefox starts. I have uninstalled Firefox and cleaned out the registry with "Registry First Aid" before reinstalling Firefox. But the Browser Console returned with the new installation.

There was a similar question posted 2 years ago, but (with one possible exception) those who answered that question had apparently not encountered the problem and none provided a solution.

So yeah, I don't know why but since yesterday it has been acting strange. I haven't tinkered with anything if my memory serves right. Whenever I try to open a website or the Preferences page or anything -- it is blank! I can't open new tabs too. I tried various solutions like no Hardware Acceleration, refreshing and even re-installation. However, what is weird is, I can use Firefox alright with Window's Safe Mode (not Firefox's, Window's).

I tried clearing AppData and some other stuff and am getting no response. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

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.

Whenever I receive a link to webpage in a chat from these two applications, Firefox is unable to open them when set as a default browser.

The links are valid and tested, since they open when the URL is manually copied and pasted in the address bar of Firefox.

This is a specific Firefox problem as I have successfully opened links by clicking on them from these apps using Brave/Chrome as default browsers for a comparison.

I've recently come across two websites that use embedded maps, where the maps are not loading at all. (but maps.google.com is working just fine)

There are two embedded maps on here that don't load:
   https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html
And the main map on here won't load, and its my first time using this site:
   https://www.zumper.com/apartments-for-rent/new-york-ny

Here's what I've tried in solving this issue:

 - Turned off the Enhanced Tracking Protection for each of these sites
 - Disabled all of my extensions and restarted FF
 - Started FF in Safe Mode
But none of these fixed the issue. The only thing that works so far is to use a brand new FF profile, and then the embedded maps will load on these sites.
So, why doesn't Safe Mode work? What is it about my main profile that is causing the maps not to load?
Btw, I'd prefer not to rebuild my profile from scratch, as it would take lots and lots of time to get everything set back up again in the new profile.
Thanks, Darren

I have Windows 10 at current maintenance and Firefox 75 -at current maintenance. I have no problem with any other website, and the Discover website was fine until Mon Apr. 13. Now it says my accounts cannot be accessed.

Discover support says it is a problem with Firefox Java settings, but I cannot find anything about Java in the options. They had me restart the PC and clear cache and cookies in Firefox, but neither solved the problem.

I can access these accounts successfully with Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge, so it looks like something in Firefox IS the problem. From previous support entries it looks like you have had similar issues in the past, so looks like that problem is back.

How soon can I expect this to be fixed? Firefox is my default browser, and I hate to have to use a different browser for just one website.

My google maps is unable to access my location even though I have allowed location access from Firefox preferences/settings. The blue target button (Current Location) on Google maps is greyed out, and when I hover over it it says that access is not allowed. Even though when I'm in google maps, the Address bar shows that my location access is allowed, as well as in the Firefox settings. I have refreshed the window multiple times, restarted Firefox, cleared all cookies, and restarted my computer. I've also toggled the enhanced tracking protection in the address bar to off, restarted the browser, still not working. Everything in the settings tells me that access is allowed, yet google maps still tells me that it is denied. Has anyone had this problem, or know of a workaround or how to fix this? Thanks!
