I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 and i keep getting notices to upgrade. But the last time I upgraded, Firefox changed the locations of my tabs from below the address bar to above the address bar and also changed the behavior of the address bar. It took me a couple of weeks to find the answers and get things back the way they were. I don't want to upgrade Firefox because I have no idea what it might change this time. Is there a way to keep Firefox from sending me upgrade notices when I don't want them?

I have just purchased a new iMac. The retailer instakked all myold software, including Firefox. When I opened Firefox I found a number of bookmarks for companies with which I no longer have any deakings, and I tried to delete them, following the proceedures in Firefox Help. But it didn't work, either way. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of these annoying bookmarks?

I have used Firefox for several years and have been very happy with it. However, in the last few/several weeks, I am finding that when I click on a link to go to another screen, it either takes forever or does not work at all.

What steps should I take to help with this problem? I am using Firefox 78.0.2 (64Bit).

For a few weeks now, I cannot start a You Tube clip using my favourite browser Firefox. When I select a clip, it displays with a rather blurred image. When I click on the red arrow to start the clip, nothing happens. Video clips from sites other than You Tube work fine. I tried opening a clip using Microsoft Edge and it worked fine. I am using Windows 10 64 bit and the Firefox is version 78.0.2. Any suggestions as to how to fix this?

If you go to Google Calendar and right click on an empty space Firefox consistently crashes.

  1. I've tried Firefox Safe Mode - still crashes.
  2. I've tried a new profile with the same installation - still crashes
  3. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox but keeping the profile - still crashes.
  4. I've tried a new user account in Windows 10 and new profile - no crashes.
  5. I've tried ``sfc /scannow`` - integrity is good.

It's hard to get crash details but the last one I could get is - https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/6e2515a4-86cc-4bde-9d4e-06b060200716#tab-details

Does anyone have any idea before I start a new user account?

I'm running Firefox 78.0.2 on a desktop system with Linux Mint 19.3 OS. I'm using Blackboard (online training hosting service) and, at one point, I clicked on a link "Share screen". The window in the attached image popped up. However, I decided I didn't want to actually share my screen. I found absolutely NO way to get rid of this pop-up UNLESS I actually selected "Allow" or "Don't Allow". I tried clicking somewhere else on the screen, clicking outside of Firefox to take the focus off of it, opening another program altogether, clicking on the various icons next to the address bar. Nothing worked. The only work-around I found was to select "Don't Allow", then manually click on the new icon, and "X" next to "Block screen sharing". Is this a bug? Or can I put in a feature request to put a "X" (close window) on this so that I can make it go away without having to jump through those hoops? Thanks.

I have a problem with using Firefox to view the GUI of my ASUS RT-AC86U router. One of the pages (the system log page) causes Firefox to crash within 2-3 seconds of viewing it. It doesn't happen in Microsoft Edge and it didn't happen in Firefox until yesterday. I have eliminated my antivirus as a possible cause by uninstalling it temporarily. I have also tried uninstalling Firefox, deleting all my personal folders, reinstalling it and testing it again before synchronising to my account, to eliminate any add-ons/extensions as being a possible cause. I don't know what else to try, so I'm open to suggestions.

(Maybe it is me - it usually is)

I have saved logins saved in FF. There is also a master password.

This problem is happening more and more:

I load FF and no "Enter master password" requester.

I start browsing. Eventually I get to a site which requires a log in.

NOTHING!

So I know FF has it saved - and password protected - but FF has decided to not ask me for the master password so I (or it) can then enter the saved details.

Today - being the last straw - I come here and (of course) this saved log in wasn't accessible. I fell back on the secondary system and logged in. FF asks me if I want to save this log in. (Maybe luckily) I said YES - but I am sure it is already saved - do I then get the "Enter master password" requester.

This is annoying as I have a few pages which I access very frequently password locked. It is annoying when I get to them - even tried reloading the page, if that will bring up the requester. It doesn't - FF won't/can't log in for me.

Hi - I'm having an issue with Firefox, well its been ongoing for some weeks but just getting around to it..

My problem is that Firefow will not download files. I have tried the trouble shooting steps and its not a firewall issue because my other browsers will download - as a developer I have all the major browsers installed.

Also I changed the settings to have Firefox request the download folder for each downlod - but it doesn't. Anyway I am about to reinstall will post back then.

Maybe should have done that first.

Hi,

As the title suggests, Firefox is saving the wrong password for a login. Here's what I have done so far to fix the problem: 1. I just deleted all saved logins 2. Restarted Firefox 3. Re-entered the correct username and password

I keep getting "test" as the password instead of what should be the actual password as can be seen in the image. Note, I used a program to whiteout the username.

I don't why but today some sites are not available to access, it is not internet problem. I tested using other browsers: Opera and Chrome, it works perfectly fine on those browsers.

I tried to clear all cookies and caches, refresh, and disable all plugins but the issue still persists.

Hi! I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Pro 1909. In the process of telling Firefox to open PDF files with PDF X-Change Viewer, I noticed that one of the filetypes in the list is "Vectric". I don't know how to have Firefox tell me the extensions included in this filetype, but I assume they would be .crv, .crv3d, .3dclip, and others associated with Aspire, my Vectric software app. Files like this I would only ever want to save, but on trying to say so I discovered that "Save File" isn't one of the options in the dropdown menu. So my questions are: 1. Why is "Save File" not given as an option for the Vectric filetype? 2. How can I get "Save File" to apply to the Vectric filetype? 3. Why on earth is such an obscure filetype as "Vectric" specifically listed here, anyway?

Hi, so recently, with firefox on windows 10 I haven't been able to use the address bar to access the list of sites which should be there that I visit every day.

Usually I just click in an empty address bar, and instantly the list of sites would just pop down from there, with highest frequency of visited sites at the top, down to other, less frequently visited addresses.

I'm not talking about top sites, like I can access in a blank tab if I activate that option. That was always where I pinned sites that were important for me to visit, but weren't as high frequency as email or facebook, which I would have at the top of the list of addresses in the address bar.

I can't seem to find the answer, but how do I get that to work again? Currently I can access top sites, which is really not what I want, as that is usually on a new blank tab if I choose to have that option chosen for there. Or I have access to history though only if I start typing in the address bar, which again, is not what I want.

Click and pop, and the list appears is all I want please.
