I just paid for and downloaded the Firefox VPN. I turned it on but there is NO ICON in the Firefox browser showing that it is active. Where is the HELP for this darn thing? I went to SETTINGS and it looks like it is turned on but there should be a HELP topic for this damn thing without drilling down for over 2,000 help topics! If I cannot know 100% that it is ON and working... then I'll get my money back. I don't have TIME to fool around with BULLSHIT! Be clear. Be comprehensive. Be succinct!

My Firefox for MAC 78.4.0esr (64-bit) Browser Window shakes horizontally, uncontrollably, when I click on links in websites. This began just before the last update, and happens more frequently than not, forcing me to abandon the application because I can't close the shaking window. I can't see a specific pattern to which links will cause this to happen, but if I restart Firefox and try the same link, it will repeat the error. My device is a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.53GHz, Mid 2009), OSX El Capitan V 10.11.6, 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB. This error does not occur in Safari. Firefox is my preferred browser.

I have firefox 82.0.3 and videos on reddit are not loading, well embeded youtube ones are, just not the ones hosted by reddit I believe. The screen just stays blank. I tried this from old.reddit.com as well as www.reddit.com. before anyone says its a setting or an extension, I was doing a clean install of ubuntu and loaded firefox. no extensions, just the default settings. I installed brave browser and it works in brave just fine.

I also have linux mint with firefox 77.0.1 on another computer and it works fine (and that computer has a bunch of extentions as well as a bunch of privacy tweaks in the about:config (the ones listed on privacytools.io)

I also loaded firefox in safe mode and deleted the prefs.js file. none of that worked. I also changed the preference to load play video play audio. didnt work. It seems also gyfycat videos load too.

any suggestions?

Apologies for the probably dumb question, but I'm finding myself frustrated that I cannot interpret the image that Firefox displays on the "cannot find this site" error page. I get it is something holding a map, but what is it? Cannot figure out what are those on its head, obviously not eyes as quite strangely placed and not identical.

Error message: E:\Users\Sarah\AppData\Local\Temp\xxxxx.xxx.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

I do want to mention upfront that this issue is also affecting Chrome and IE. It's not solely a Firefox issue, but I'm hoping someone here can help me anyways.

  • This happens for any filetype, from any source.
  • It started happening about a month ago.
  • Prior to that, I installed a new motherboard, RAM and processor. I'm fairly certain there was a period between these events in which it worked fine, but I am mentioning it just in case it's relevant.
  • If it's a small file and I try repeatedly, it sometimes will eventually download.
  • Even if a large file successfully starts downloading, it will eventually fail. It usually fails immediately though.
  • I sometimes have success downloading the same file in Chrome, but it also often fails. IE as well.

I have tried the following:

  • Used Refresh Firefox
  • Cleared download history
  • Changed download location
  • Reset browser.download values
  • Disabled firewalls and antivirus/spyware
  • Reinstalled Firefox using Run as Admin (first uninstalled previous version and deleted all program files that I could find, including profiles)
  • Cleared cookies and cache
  • Ran in safe mode
  • Verified Temp folder filepath was valid
  • Verified the PART file was created in that path -- it exists until I hit OK on the error message, then it disappears
  • Ran Firefox as admin

I think these are outdated methods I only found on non-official sources, but will mention them just in case:

  • I found some sources that said to delete Compreg.dat; I could not find this file in the place listed, nor could I find it with a search of the entire drive
  • Verified places.sqlite was not set to read-only
  • Removed read-only from entire profile folder and subfolders

In Options > Security: 'Block dangerous & deceptive content': true, 'Block dangerous downloads': false

Internet speed test: 58.96 Mbps download; 148.04 Mbps upload. No connection loss.

This problem is absolutely maddening. I'll be so grateful if anyone can help me out!! :( Thank you in advance, I know this was a long read!

Until recently, when I use the 'pay bills' part of my banks website, it showed the full list of payees. It no longer displays the list of payees. The second image shows the current display of the payees.

If I open a 'new private window' and then log on to the bank web site and 'pay bills' it shows the full list. The first image shows the list including only the first payee.

Why does the private window work and not the ordinary window????

Firefox ESR on Devuan, both 2.0 and Beowulf, has a problem involving resizing. Webpages that formally displayed fine now are too large (the indicator shows 100%, but I must reduce it to 80% to display as it did before). Other Linux distributions, for example, Linux Mint and openSUSE, do not have this problem (PaleMoon on the Devuan system does not have the problem).

The hardware is old: Intel 3rd Generation Core processor, 8 GB memory, SSD connected via USB 3.0.

The best solution might be to run both Firefox ESR and regular Firefox. I can download the latter, extract it, move the folder to the desktop, and double-click on "firefox" to start it, similar to how I run PaleMoon. Is there a way to avoid them using the same profile?

Prior to the latest version, I had set "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" in about:config to False in addition to blocking both audio and video within the settings so that nothing would autoplay without my input.

I updated to version 78 yesterday, and it seems that "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" is now gone from within about:config. I'm getting videos autoplaying within sites like YouTube, despite me setting both audio and video to not autoplay.

Is there anything I can do to ensure that nothing starts playing without me allowing it?

Hello, Firefox seems to be using my system's High Contrast text color to render websites. My High Contrast text color is a light grey, to contrast with a dark system background. However, many webpages on the internet have light backgrounds, so when Firefox uses this color, I can't read the text. I already have Options>Language and Appearance>Colors>Override the colors specified by the page set to "Never." This also occurs in a brand new profile with 0 extensions or addons in Safe Mode. I just want Firefox to display webpages "normally", i.e. with black text, without regard to the current system colors.

To reproduce: - Turn on High Contrast - Visit a site such as http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/ppois.html - Change system High Contrast text color to any color you wish - Notice that the text on the page also changes to the same color, even with the setting on "Never"

Is there any way I can get Firefox to ignore the system's text color settings? Chrome renders the webpage just fine with black text.

Hi,

it's the second time that I found a mail from "Firefox <Mozilla@e.mozilla.org>" in my spam folder. Its links seem suspicious to me, beginning with "https://click.e.mozilla.org/" followed by long sequences of digits and letters. The mail's text is identical with parts of the German site "https://www.mozilla.org/de/". Subject line is "Schütze das Web, das du liebst". Maybe it's no spam/phishing, but I want to be shure.

Probably I'm wrong here, but I couldn't find a better place to post this. If so, could anyone tell me the right place to report this?

Thanks a lot! Thomas

I don't get any notice, it just doesn't work.

Also, one of the search engines I've been using (Twitter) seems to have disappeared from my browser. That's what got me to try to install it again, with no luck so far.

(I've dowloaded Firefox Nightly, installed it from scratch, and seem to have the problem.)

The control page of my locally connected printer at 192.168.1.5 is being blocked as a "dangerous" site because it doesn't have a valid certificate as a web site. It's literally RIGHT NEXT TO MY COMPUTER! No path to the public internet is involved! How can I make this an exception (i.e. a "trusted site") to the certificate error blocking routine? I don't want to drop certificate checking for OUTSIDE web pages, just the one that controls my printer (the same IP address is accessible for printing and scanning, but not for editing my printer's options).

The frame for the printer's home page displays but with no data, and no data is displayed when anything is clicked. I've tried to add a screen shot but it doesn't upload.

Problem began with not being able to open a new tab. I updated to FF 78.0.2.

Now I still cannot open a new tab and my tabs are superimposed on my bookmark folders. Clicking on that menu bar opens a folder, not a tab. FF is unusable.

Also, the three coloured buttons, appear down on the webpage rather than in the menu bar. In order to get them out of there, I have to create a title bar that holds only them and the title of the page I'm on which seems a waste of space. Can I get them on the bar next to the search box?

Image attached.

Thanks for any help. Greatly appreciated.
