tried to setup sync and immediately was hit with a demand to download firefox to mobile to complete setup. sorry firefox doesn't work on my phone ( at least until you fix it so it doesn't take forever to load anything) too bloated even without the bloat. can't get past that screen to try to sync anything. If I can't and actually won't install firefox on the phone because it's too slow how do I setup sync? If you are wondering it's an android and the last release of android 7. I deleted the account since I can't do anything with it that is useful. BTW I don't care for pocket and the other default goodies added to the toolbar so as I said having a firefox account is pretty useless. Can I setup SYNC without my mobile as part of the requirements? Have 2 tablets, a desktop, and a laptop and that is all the devices I'm interested in syncing. My phone is not one of them.

I've twice gotten a banner that says, "Want to try something new in Firefox?" and has a button labeled "get it now," and another button for "more info."

Is this legit, or is it malware? It happened once a day or two ago, and then again today. (I took a screenshot, but it is not uploading for some reason.)

I am trying to get content from washingtonpost.com . They need me to disable tracker blocking. The standard help screen (capped below) says to just click the button labeled "Turn off Blocking for This Site." Only trouble is, no such button actually exists on the information popup screen (Clicking the circled 'i'). The popup screen I get looks exactly like the one in the help, except for the missing button. I have tried all the suggestions in other posts and none of them work. I notice I am not the only one with this problem. Is it possible my install of Firefox is corrupted? But nothing else I have noticed is wrong. I am running Firefox quantum 68.0.1 under Ubuntu xcfe.

I've seen this answer, but it doesn't fully fix the problem: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/951487

When I look at the address bar, I want to see the actual URI of the page I'm on, not some mangled version of it. In other words, I want to see the address in the form that is valid in an <a/> tag in XHTML.

Setting browser.urlbar.trimURLs to false fixes HALF of the problem, but not all of it. If I type in "http://example.com/filename%20with%20spaces.ext", I should see "http://example.com/filename%20with%20spaces.ext". However, I instead see "http://example.com/filename with spaces.ext". The "%20"s are converted into spaces, which are not valid in a real URI. How do I fix the address bar to show the real address of the page?

EDIT: It seems to me that if someone sets the trim setting to false, the URI should not be trimmed in ANY way. This includes the shortening of %20 to a space character. Is this a bug?

Firefox Version 63.0 (64-bit) Home build PC, 480GB SSD, 2 x 2TB HD's, 8GB Ram.

I have had problems with streaming Channel 4 TV UK for many years. I could only get it to work on Windows. Recently I have Dumped Window 10 - so slow - updates take all day. I now am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (using Linux since 2009)

Channel 4 say they Do Not support Linux ?

I have tried to install Adobe Flash Player, but does not seam to work or download. On Ch 4 web page I pressed Allow, but say that I should install Flash Player !

Please could anyone advice me what I can do, or what I have done wrong.

Regards, Richard.

when media starts playing on my computer without my consent, this should be considered a cybercime.

The only way for a video to start playing should be `right click -> play`

cut the nonsense with the *media.autoplay.enabled* switch. it doesnt work and it never will. as soon as the website uses any kind of scripting, this switch is ineffective.


which extension do i need to install to stop this autoplay nightmare forever?

I've been using a custom font (DejaVu) with unchecked "allow sites to use their own fonts" since a long time. But now some sites came with this new idea of icon fonts that look completely broken (a weird box with crazy stuff inside) until I globally check "allow sites to use their own fonts". Is there any way to configure different fonts per site? Specifically I would like to keep my all time configuration except for these specific sites which should be loading their beloved fonts.

Hi here!! I review a lot of mozilla docs (out dated or without complete info), forums, googling ... about how to share firefox/thunderbird/ligthing data between platforms on dual/multiple boot system. Every user in same trouble are repeating (copy/paste) in the solution to share the SAME FULL PROFILE on all platforms. I review profile data and folders and I can see files and config data that are platform dependent; then I think that share FULL PROFILE between is not the best approach, for example Linux and Windows will produce several problems (and a lot of problems with the add-ons) In these same mozilla docs recommends to share only data and maintain custom profile for each platform, but not more info how to do it. Please can some kind advanced :) provide some info about the correct approach. Or a better tech info about how is possible the recommendation of sharing same profile between platforms without problems. Because with the current doc info, there is no way to get a clear answer (Almost I can't :~). Thx guys!

I've upgraded to FF4 12 Beta and there seems to be no way to save a session or tabs from previous session. I have changed or confirmed all the correct settings set to true in about:config for warnOnQuit, warnOnClose, etc, as well as edit>preferences to warn when closing multiple tabs. Still FF opens to a blank page though I set it to default and no tabs are saved. 11 Beta works fine. any ideas?

There are add-ons for this, however noSquint distorts some pages (which ctrl++ doesn't), and "Default fullzoom level says it's depracated and works poorly with firefox >=29

I use fresh installation of firefox 30 on Ubuntu, only default ubuntu add-ons.

Annoying new development in the newest Firefox. 1) I cannot enter a search term in the URL field anymore. 2) When I open a new tab, then it does not go to my homepage (which is my default browser)

I now have to Open a new tab, then once open, I have to (like an idiot) press the home page icon to get my default search engine to display.

Firefox used to open my homepage on every new empty tab created. Not anymore...

Firefox worked well. I cannot understand the reason for this silly development. It is truly counterproductive.

Is there anyway in the about:config that I can switch of this cat and mouse that the new version plays with my ability to get to my default search engine.
