What I am seeing is attached. I've tried using Firefox in safe mode but with same results. And when I use the Restore This Tab button I get same results.

Thanks.

There are two issues (or confusion) concerning tracker notifications on Firefox for Windows. Recently after a FF update, I noticed, when opening a URL link, a small pop up window, lower right hand side would open listing the trackers associated with that page. Most are lined out and a few are not (depends on the page). Then the pop up window goes away.

First issue: How do you make that pop up stay open so that you can read the information it is displaying? How can you recall the pop up, if you need to? What does lined out mean vs. not lined out? Obviously, I can take a guess here but it would be nice to have an official reference or explanation.

Second Issue: I would expect that the Safe Protection Dashboard would be in agreement with the info displayed in that tracker pop up window. It does not. Open a URL, the tracker pop up window opens and lists, for example: 8 trackers, 6 of which are lined out, 2 are not. Go to the Safe Protection dashboard and it ALWAYS says "No trackers know to Firefox were detected on this page." --> Well, something ain't right here. These two tracker status indicators should be in agreement. And, just in case, they don't have to be in agreement, then there should be some explanation as to why there are different results.

Thank you for a great product and the attention to detail.

I'm having a problem making outgoing phone calls from Google Hangouts from my Firefox 78.0.1 browser on my Mac running OS 10.13.6 High Sierra. Can anyone tell me what to do to get this working? Every once in a while it works, but most of the time it will not. I have the same issue when I try doing it via Chat out of my Gmail account.

What happens is that when I execute to dial the number, the dialer pops up and instantly closes, and the call does not go through. That dialer will not stay open, and it must forthe call to work. This happens whether I try to use it online from https://hangouts.google.com/ or out of a Gmail e-mail account via Google Chat, which is included in the e-mail account.

I prefer to use Firefox rather than Google Chrome. But in testing, I find I can make outgoing calls from Chrome.

Once in a while, this works. In my Google search, I did find one assertion that it no longer will work out of Firefox because Firefox has stopped supporting plug ins (I had no idea -- then Flash also should not work, but it does, I can watch flash videos, so I'm doubtful plugin support is the issue).

Yet, I do find that Firefox actually offers a Google Hangouts add on! I don't see how that could be if it can't be supported for lack of a plugin. I installed that, closed and reopened Firefox, and tried to dial out of it. Same problem, dialer flashed open and closed, it did not dial out.

Again, I note, sometimes, rarely it seems, it will work. It should not do even that if it requires a plugin that is not there. I didn't see anything in settings that I would expect could be related.

I also note, I have tested it on a Windows 10 laptop, again out of the current Firefox, and same issue. So it doesn't appear the problem is necessarily linked to my Mac, its linked to Firefox. I suspect Firefox will have to do something to be compatible with Google Hangouts and Google Chat.

On a substantial portion of the pages I try to load I get the "The connection has timed out" page. Sometimes as many as 30% or more of the pages I try to load. I can't say this happens all the time, but I've noticed in a lot of cases there is no activity in that bottom status line about a site being contacted or some google ad page is loading or whatever Just nothing at all

I suspect my ISP (verizon DSL) has been restricting my bandwidth -- the situation wasn't this bad a few years ago When I called to ask about it, the call center agent said that I had signed up for a slow connection -- the only thing I signed up for was DSL -- and there was nothing she could do about it

I check www.dailylocal.com for old hometown news, but it's been timing out every time for a couple weeks I'm pretty sure that they're not a first-class operation, but I'm also wondering if Verizon could be keeping a blacklist of sites since some of these sites keep timing out while others sail through

I'm not at all asseting Fireforx is an issue The sites won't load with Edge either But I trust Firefox folks more than most others Any info you can provide, I'd appreciate I'd love to know how I can monitor real time the bandwidth Verizon is providing me

Thanks

I'm not going to get into the complete and utter disaster that 78 is. I'll keep my grief and anguish to myself. The fact that I have to click spacebar to get to the old (vastly superior) dropdown list makes me irate. (This is the first time I've explored other programs outside of firefox in over 15 years.) So, I've done this, I've clicked spacebar on the address bar, I can now see my old list of recent or popular, or whatever sites that I frequent the most. But now there's this completely worthless "Search with..." at the top. I've deleted all but one of these search options from the "One-Click Search" in options, but it won't let me delete the last one. I don't need another place to search or something else that I quite frankly don't need in my way. At the top of the search page under options there's this neat little feature called "Search Bar" It's insanely brilliant, I use it all the time. sits right next to the address bar, simple, easy, functional. When I click on the address bar itself, It's all ready for me to search, again, brilliant. Why do I need a 3rd option to get to the same thing?

How do I remove the one-click search from appearing in the address bar dropdown?

I can't get spellcheck to work. I'm using Firefox on a Mac. This is true even when using a box with multiple lines.

I have ticked the box in preferences that says Check your spelling as you type. I have a language chosen - English (United Kingdom). I tried installing a different dictionary in Add-ons, but it made no difference.

I've gone into about:config and adjusted the settings in layout.spellcheckDefault and checked services.sync.prefs.sync.layout.spellcheckDefault, which made no difference.

I've read posts that say to right click and look at the dictionaries, but this doesn't work for me (could be because I'm using a Mac). Same with pressing Control.

Any thoughts?

I have have a problem when typing e-mails in an hotmail.com-account. Almost every second word is underlined with a red wavy line. It marks spelling mistakes and makes suggestions for a different spelling. I do not need spell check and even do not want it. It's very annoying.

I have deactivated spell check in both Firefox and Outlook already and also have restarted Firefox after several changes. But the red lines are still there.

Does anyone have any idea what else I could try?

Hi there!

I migrated to a new Computer (win 10 x64) where I installed firefox 78.0.1. But it keeps crashing whenever an "explorer" window is open within firefox. i.e. most of the time when a download is started and absolutely every time when I open an integrated explorer windows (e.g. when I try to export/import the bookmarks to html).

I already tried cleaning the installation (with built-in function) as well as deleting all add ons with no result. I even completely re-installed firefox (whilst deleting ALL firefox-data in the %appdata% directories. No result, it still crashes I then made a new "fresh" profile - still it crashes

BTW: there is never any "crash log" generated, it just stops working and firefox "disappears"

I already searched this database and found 2 similar problems, but one was solved by upgrading to windows 10 (which I already have) and one was solve by uninstalling a specific security software (which I don't have).

So I really don't know how to fix this - any ideas?

Thank you and kind regards
