My keyboard is US but I often need to insert the UK pound sign. The input tools work very well and all four English options are installed. Unfortunately they are all to replicate US keyboards which don't have the GBP sign.

The Firefox verion is 68.0.2 64 bit for Linux Mint.

Are there additional keyboards available or a better method of inserting special characters?

Hi - this relates to 68.0.2 x64 on W7 x64. For a long time - 3 years or so - my Home page has shown my most visited web sites and these change over time as they should. After an MS update/restart FF now shows a blank home page. (see pic)

Everything else works OK. If I make a new FF profile and use that the home page works as expected. I know I could ditch my current profile and use a new one but I'd like to repair it if possible.

Any suggestions pls?

Thanks!

Requests to music.amazon.com and amazon.com to download mp3 files fail. After a long session with Amazon tech they informed me that they have changed code and 'no longer support' firefox in this regard. A Firefox update is apparently needed. I am making this post mostly to notify mozilla if needed, and to ask if others have had the same problem.

As a web developer I run MAMP locally and develop my websites using chrome, now I wanted to switch to the dev browser of firefox. After allowing an exception for my local domain name pointing to the MAMP instance running that particular website it does not let me go past thru the alert. Even when adding the correct domain name to the exception list under the tab security in the settings it does not let me go past thru the warning.

How do I stop Firefox from displaying the name of a graphic I hover over? If this is on the screen when I follow a link, sometimes it persists even when I close the whole browser! The only way to get rid of it in those cases is to log off and back on or it'll sit on the desktop and overlay anything that is displayed.

The graphic attached shows the popup that I'd like to inhibit.

Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6

Here's the routine with FF on this machine: If FF 68.0.2 is running, after a while I will try to open a new tab and be told "Sorry we need to do one small thing to keep going, FF has been updated in the background, Restart FF" I do so. It opens up a new, clean profile in a new window (About FF now says 68.0.1 in this version of FF, and it downloads 68.0.2 and prompts to Restart FF (again)). At which point it runs "a new helper tool" and re-updates FF to 68.0.2. I then have to mess with about:profiles to go back to my profile. Things then run routinely for a few hours or a day, before the whole routine starts over again.

Alternately, if FF 68.0.2 is not running, if I open it (after opening and closing it several times without issue), I will get a message that "You've launched an older version of FF, Create New Profile or Quit". Create New Profile leads me through the routine above.

Versions of the above routine have happened not just between 68.0.2 and 68.0.1, but also between earlier version updates. That is, this has been going on for months. It does seem in the last couple of weeks that the interval of time has shortened and I'm having to do this routine everyday or even multiple times a day. I have no problems like this with FF on any other machine.

I've tried:

Trashing FF and re-dl'ing from Mozilla. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Cache/Mozilla and Firefox folders. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles (and re-signing in to retrieve my existing bookmarks etc and re-setting up View and other Preferences). No dice.

If anyone has any ideas, I'll be grateful, thanks in advance.

This started when I installed V68 on my Mac (I'm on 68.0.2 now, Mac is 10.12.6). About half the time when I start my computer in the morning, when I try to browse *any* site (http or https), I get the TLS handshake attempt that lasts for several minutes, then connection fails.

BUT, *unlike other posts with this problem*, if I restart my computer (restarting FF does not fix it), all is well. A detail (not sure if relevant): the pages my (Comcast) server has local copies of, that is, my home page and a couple of very frequently accessed pages, I can access, but any other site, regardless of http or https, results in the TLS handshake "freeze 'n fail."

  • Edit: I just lost then, 10 mins later, regained my Comcast (internet, mail, cable). I did not re-start computer or FF, but when signal returned, I got the dreaded TLS Handshake Freeze 'N Fail. Again, computer restart let me come here to report.
