I am past sick and tired of having to click the "not now" notification window.

i see mozilla has removed the option to turn off notifications, and i'm irate at the direction mozilla is taking with this.

case in point, i updated recently and some idgit at mozilla decided "hey, let's completely change the control panel, look, all settings, and everything else!..."

i am one step from deleting firefox from all my devices...I'VE HAD IT

if i can't choose how and when i want to update, then forget it....i'm DONE with firefox...

oh, and the jerks that wiped out all of my settings in the last update?...you can go [ahem] yourselves

I have been playing poker on this site... https://www.youdagames.com/en/online-games/governor-of-poker-3-free/

As of yesterday, June 3rd, the game simply will not load. Already tried clearing the cache, no good. Upgraded flash, nope. They suggested another browser. I have opera so tried, and it works just fine. I don't use opera. Don't really want to either. One browser is fine.

They finally admitted they just did a game upgrade and suddenly now firefox won't work? Sounds to me like this browser has an issue, not their game. Since it works on another browser.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I'm on version 64 and please DO NOT tell me to upgrade. The next version will AUTO upgrade without my knowledge or permission. VERY BAD AND STUPID IDEA TO FORCE THINGS ONTO PEOPLE! Let ME decide when, why, and IF I need an upgrade. NOT YOU! Hoping when you come out with the next version you LISTEN TO PEOPLE and stop forcing upgrades. Bad enough I have to click "not now" every damn time I launch this thing. STOP IT!!!! This has been said by MANY PEOPLE too. LISTEN! STOP IT! So an upgrade isn't happening. If I have to I'll simply switch to opera. Really don't want to do that.

Hoping you can figure out why this simple game site suddenly stopped loading.

I will forward this post to the support person I've been talking with. MAYBE you two can get together and figure out what went glitchy? (I have been reading many similar complaints while searching your very confusing maze of a site trying to find where to post this. So it seems you have problems on many fronts with sites not functioning.)

I've set everything to German (!), But Firefox still assumes that I prefer Spanish although I do not speak Spanish, probably because I installed Firefox for the first time, when I went on holiday with my notebook in Spain and used Spanish Wi-Fi. Since then, many platforms such as LinkedIn or Google always open up in Spanish for the first time. What can I do to ONLY get German or English at the first call of new pages? With the Chrome browser, the pages ALWAYS come in German or English, never in Spanish.

Your connection is not secure

The owner of www.airbnb.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

Helo. Can anyone help me please? I am trying to use "Messenger for Desktop" to phone Facebook friends. I can hear them but they cannot hear me. My inbuilt-microphone is selected as default & works with my Zoiper Softphone. The suggestions here (https://support.mozilla.org/gl/questions/1228717?mobile=0&fpa=1 ) do not work One of the reasons I am always slow to update Firefox (I have 66.0.4) is that the "help" available always has been rendered useless by innovations. I believe "desktop for windows" requested mike access once, & I believe I hit "allow".....but there seems no way at all to verify, check, change or modify this permission! If I hit (i) / Permissions / Cogwheel / Microphone I simply have an empty list for sites than have already asked permission. The "allow" / "deny" options are long gone. There is no way to "force" a permission or set one up. Similarly this page (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-manage-your-camera-and-microphone-permissions ) has suggestions that do not work.. If I go to the website (https://messengerfordesktop.com/) A request does not pop-up as stated. And the section on managing permissions is also outdated. When you arrive at Permissions/Microphone/Settings there is no way to INPUT a site. There is only a blank list for sites that have already asked permission. Please can somebody tell me how to FORCE a permission?

I ask this question before and other people have. I posted this problem about a one or two month ago. And my problem seem to have been solved. But the problem came back again.

What was happening and what is happening is that I down loaded Webadviser from McAfee to firefox and it seem to work fine but when I shut down my computer firefox uninstall webadviser.

A few months ago this happen too and what I did was to uninstall webadviser using window uninstall and go into my programs files and manually delete all remaining webadviser mcafee files, this seem to resolved this problem.

But last few days it happen again, of course, I tried completed uninstall but this time the problem remains. Webadvisor works fine until I shutdown. This is happening on both of my computers.

I think this is related to the latest Firefox or webadvisor updates. I think either one or both of them update within the last few days. I am running the current version of Firefox and version 4.0.7.213 Webadvisor which should be the latest versions.

I think what is happening is that Firefox is uninstalling webadvisor everything there is a shutdown/restart (perhaps a virus protection feature?) Is there a way to disable this only for web advisor? Of course if there is a standard solution or better solution please let me know.

Hi. I'm not sure when it happened, because I usually leave Firefox update itself automatically.

I like to use ctrl+enter to complete .com URL, shift+enter to complete .net URL, and ctrl+shift+enter to complete .org URL, and add alt key to these hotkeys to open it on separate window. Only ctrl+enter seem to work and shift+enter was replaced to searching on default search engine on separate window. But I do it by doing alt+enter.

What are the new hotkeys and how do I change them back?

I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

The solution below no longer works. My current version of Firefox is 64.0.2

When did this problem start for you?

On Mac, Firefox 56 ratcheted up the security sandbox, limiting which files pages can use on your system. This apparently prevents Firefox from using font files in a "suitcase" or "Adobe Type 1" format. The developers are aware of this and some fixes were made in Firefox 57, but they might have missed some font types or unexpected font file locations.

To see whether this is the problem, and as a temporary workaround, you can reduce the sandbox security level back to what it was in Firefox 52-55 as follows:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste sand and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the security.sandbox.content.level preference and change the value from 3 to 1 and click OK

That change won't take effect until the next time you quit and restart Firefox

Periodically, every three/four months, on my wife's Lenovo computer with Windows 10 Firefox has the following problem; she opens it but the Firefox window doesn't appear on the screen. Firefox is open but is not visible. I usually uninstall it and reinstall it for her and everything works fine for a few months, then the same problem. I've seen complicated solutions on now closed questions, but I'm just wondering why this happens at periodical intervals. She's not very good with computers and if no one's around her to help her it's a problem. Is there no very easy solution for this? Can't you create an app to download that automatically solves the problem? Thanks Gianmaria A Firefox fan since 2004.

I've started the slow process of sorting my bookmarks -or at least the ones that I remembered to tag when I created them- out of "other bookmarks". Unfortunately, while I can go into the Library window, select a tag, select all the items with that tag, and hit CTRL + X, doing this still only seems to copy the bookmark (despite graying it out like it knew what CTRL + X was supposed to do). Now I have duplicates, and deleting them presents equally probably-a-bug problems. Even if I figure out which duplicate is the "old" bookmark under the tag (such as by renaming them and checking which one was added to the target folder), deleting it deletes both. The best workaround I've been able to figure out is to temporarily change the target URL of the one I'm about to delete, since, as I correctly deduced (thanks @mybrain), it's deleting based on the target. Is there any better workaround, or should I report this as a bug (as I was going to do anyway) and hope for a fix? Also, where would the best place to make that report be?
