Some ads are being blocked in Firefox, but for the life of me, I cannot find where I might have an ad blocker turned on in Firefox or installed as a plug-in or extension. Chrome displays the ads correctly. Example site is www.milesawaygrandparenting.com. There are three ads at the bottom of most pages which display in Chrome but not (for me, anyway) in Firefox.

Where might I look or troubleshoot to find out where the ads are being blocked? I have McAfee Total Protection installed, and Privacy Badger also.

When using Google Forms, the normal options on all forms like: "Preview", "Settings", etc are invisible. I'm able to see them if I hover over them, but they are not visible otherwise. I just did some troubleshooting with Geek Squad and determined it's a Firefox issue. The problem does not exist using Chrome. See attached screen shots please.

I was able to use Google Forms in the past, this started a few months ago as I recall.

Thanks in advance for you help.

Having long been puzzled by what Firefox considers to be my location, I have tried to find out how to set or change it. I followed all leads that seemed promising. the most direct lead was through the Menu (three bars in my PC-based Firefox). It does not contain the Settings option, nor any kind of 'More' option. I even used the about:config lead simply to find it is enabled. All I know is that Firefox holds a Location other than what I would want to to. But I simply cannot find a way to identify where its held; so I can change it.

Given how straight forward this need is I am puzzled on how hard it is to find out how to change it. Can someone help, other than by repeating the common instructions for using the Menu? I attach my list in case it helps.

Trying to open books in Google Play Books.

I have tried in Chrome, Firefox, IE, Vivaldi and Opera but all with the same result: "If you want to read books in Google Play you must allow cookies from books.googleusercontent.com"

However, what ever I do allow books.googleusercontent.com or cookies from same i does not work

Eg. Opera: Advanced Settings - Privacy & Security - Site Setting - Cookies - Allow - Add - books.googleusercontent.com

As mentioned, this is an issue in 5 browsers and I can't help thinking that it must be Google Play that has an issue.

I have tried Google Help forums but with no answers

I cant be right the every user has to go deep down in settings to be able to read the books (I'm frustrated, admit it)

Anyone knowing anything?

Take care

After years of stable operation this behavior began after an OS system update enabled me to update Firefox to 64.0.xx. I've tried both Refresh Firefox, and trashing prefs.js, without success. All social sites affected, Feedly, and others.

Noted: Firefox (preferred browser) is now the application associated with all html, json, js, and perhaps other files.

1. Session Restore does not restore pinned tabs. I keep about ten, so this is a real burden, trying to remember them all and restore them manually. And it happens about twice a week that I have to restore, so it's no small matter. To me, at least.

2. Also, I still have the problem with using "X" to exit: If there is another window of FF running, and I exit the "main" window first, on restart I will only get the second window. I am so accustomed to using the "X" for all programs and apps. that retraining to use the three-line window and clicking on "Exit" is a challenge for me I try manfully to overcome for this. Which seems idiosyncratic to me. And Ctrl-Shft-Q has never worked for me at all.

Thanks.

Hi everyone. Weird issue.

So I reinstalled Firefox, and went about my business.. .and found that the font in gmail/google calendar is... well.. not smooth anymore.

At first I was just seeing things... and now its blatantly obvious the font has been changed somehow.

I've tried refreshing, safe mode, new profile, reinstalling, no add-ons, turning certain add-ons off, etc. Nothing seems to be working.

In comparison, the font in Opera and Chrome are exactly the same, and the font in Firefox is slightly off. and now I'm noticing this in almost all websites - it just seems the font in gmail/google calendar is obviously not smooth. What did i do, and how do i fix this? :(

Sometime last year netflix stopped playing on FF. I found an older version of FF and installed it on my desktop - Netflix worked fine. BUT I did not want to have to mess with downgrading FF on all of my computers and then having to deal with the 'you dont have the latest version of FF' messages so I migrated to Chrome. It is now at least 9 months later and I thought I would give FF another shot-same F7121-1331 error message from netflix. I am running windows 10 version 1803

I can't delete autocomplete entries in any way. Clearing the complete form and search history does nothing, and using down-arrow to select entries in form blanks, and hitting DELETE, SHIFT+DELETE, CTRL+DELETE all do nothing, and while CTRL+SHIFT+DELETE will pop up the "Clear History" pane, it still does nothing when I select it to delete both form/search entries and cache.

I have Firefox set to not remember form or search history, and this has gone far beyond annoying. It's not an addon interfering, either, because I have tried it in Firefox Safe Mode (all addons disabled) as well, with no change.

Recently when I open Firefox it has changed behavior when I then open a new tab. In my settings I have selected Firefox home page as what should display both on opening and for each new tab. For my home page I have specified a number of top sites. These top sites will display when I first open Firefox. They used to also display when I opened a new tab. But now when I open a new tab I get a blank page with some kind of random wallpaper background and nothing on it except a "Search the web" option.

My operating system is windows 10 pro and my Firefox browser is up to date. My system is about 2 years old, and there have been no changes in the operating system, aside from necessary updates, since I first set it up.

Every time I close Firefox, the "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" box becomes unchecked. When it is unchecked, all of my saved login information is unavailable. So, I must recheck the box every single time I open Firefox. This could be multiple times per day since I am prefer to close windows I'm not using, especially when running Matlab scripts. It's been happening for several months now, and it's really annoying.

Thanks for the help.
