Hi forum The email provider for my preferred secondary email address uses greylisting. It works, very well. The confirming email from firefox is sent from a random amazon address, which gets greylisted as intended. There's a 5 minute limit for entering the confirmation code, but greylisting slows delivery of the email to around 15 minutes, waiting for the amazon sending server to try multiple times. Is there another way to update the secondary email address ?

There are only a few things that I need on right click. Open in New Tab, save image as, copy link, copy link location. Only rarely do I use the developer functions, so that over time I am accustomed to accessing the Developer Tools from the Tools tab on the main menu. The fact that many of these tools that I do not use are now on the right-click menu are causing me to make errors. I subscribe to an online newspaper that is the first item I read in the day. I go through the front page of the newspaper, I right click on articles I want to read in a new tab. I am so used to doing this efficiently from older versions of Firefox in which the right-click menu always opened where I right-clicked and therefore at the "open link in new tab" selection. Now, what happen is that I react by instinct and find myself clicking the middle of the menu and not the top. This results in errors that waste my time and cost me time and frustration.

Having read a few other problems that other people have had with updates of Firefox, I have to add my voice here. I realize that there are legitimate reasons to change some things - but these things are technical and deal with internet security - not style. It seems to me that constantly moving things around (like menu bars and the like) interrupts a user's accustomed work flows and therefore not a benefit.

It seems to me that there are two possible solutions: One is to make every aspect of user preferences editable by the user. For me, that means the main menu bar is on the top, followed by the tabs, and the right-click or context menus are editable by the user. The other solution is to create two Firefox browsers - one for the traditionalist (I'm 82) and a new browser called "Firefox Superuser".

For now, I'd just appreciate it if someone could tell me how I can get the stuff I don't use off the right-click menu.

I apologize for my grumpiness, I realize you're all volunteers. But, first thing in the morning, having to try to remember that the right click menu might not be opening with "open link in new tab" right next to my cursor is more than I can manage. I automatically click and at least 80% of the time, I'm clicking the wrong thing.

I am the webmaster for a church website. As you will see about the collected data on my computer, I work on a Linux computer. Because of the pandemic, the church has been worshipping using livestream video run from the church's website. To aid parishioners with the service, we post pdfs of the Service Bulletin, Readings for the Day, and other aids to participate in the service.

Up until, I think, Firefox 87, in testing the webpage before publishing, I was able to open the pdf links in a new tab. Now, when I try to test the pdf links, Firefox prompts me to save the pdf and I cannot view it online. Given that the pdfs were generated on my computer and exist in my files, It is somewhat ridiculous that I'm being prompted to save the pages.

However, because I also have a Windows machine, I know that this is not happening on all of Firefox, just on the Linux version,

How can I alert Firefox to get this fixed. When I'm not acting as a webmaster, I have occasion to click on a pdf link and it is annoying that it will not display in the browser and and opens up a "save" box.

Hi.

Why would you remove FTP? It's not obsolete, I use it for work, and a good one third of my browsing is easily ftp sites such as NetBSD.org, ftp.gnu.org and others. FTP is still used heavily.

I really really dislike that it's gone. I'd gladly spend 30-40$ a year for a paid version.

I've been using you guys back to Mozilla, Firebird, Netscape and even earlier ..possibly related was NCSA Mosaic. C'mon guys.. which Millenial decided FTP was obsolete and uncool because it was old? It's how most of the Open Source projects and distributions still move data around. :~( This is the first time since I started using Netscape/Mozilla/etc that you've ever done something I don't like. The last thing I want to do is be forced to use Chrome or some other garbage. Please.. bring it back or some sort of external module we can pay for to get browsing back. Please! I beg you. (Trying hard to be really civil and nice here ..truely baffled that it'd be removed).

A.

Hi, i have a strange loading behavior of some websites, that i created.

As an example, this URL: (it's an German website) https://mc-2021.hanno-fair-impuls.de/impuls-08-06-jahresevent-harzer-marketing-treff-marketing-speaker-abend.html

The page loads sometimes immediately and sometimes in doesn't until i hit refresh. And after i hit refresh it loads direct. Sometimes if the page is loaded, some resources like CSS files are not loaded completely , so the page looks broken, because of those missing CSS files. I cannot really describe the problem, it seems like the page is stuck in some situations and sometimes not.

In Chrome this behavior never happens and the URL opens direct. (I tested this very often in Chrome) Also there is no server problems like to much connections or load problems of the server.

Hopefully you can help me or point me to the right direction to find the reason of this problem.

Thank you.

Greetings Jay

The firefox installation on my desktop is not able to render anything.

Even the about:preferences window is not able to show anything both under my account and a new account I made. I even attempted to update to a new version of my distro (Pop OS) in an attempt to fix it.

My Firefox account is able to do a sync (shows up in the dropdown) so it does not have to do with proxies. Chromium also works fine.

I would rather not have to use Chromium so any help will be appreciated. I have tried running firefox in safe mode and doing a "Refresh".

I suspect this is to avoid syncing settings files. But is there a simple path-based over-ride for this?

Or perhaps another extension would solve this.

Hi all,

since I set up my blog I am sometimes & very infrequently experiencing the problem that either the style sheets are not supported (see attachment), or I am getting an error message to the effect that the address of my blog can't be reached. I already posted in the WordPress forum, and a user took a look at my blog, but couldn't replicate the error. So I came to the conclusion that this is maybe an issue with Firefox. My question: Can anybody replicate this error, and may--if possible--be post a solution here?

I recently tried to tidy up my browser bookmarks using 'manage bookmarks' and reordered them and removed several duplicates. The tree structure in the library looks kind-of weird too, as some directories such as 'bookmarks toolbar' appear 3 or 4 times, sometimes nested within itself.

After I had finished reorganising I exited and went to one of the directories on the bookmarks toolbar, but it is still showing all the old and duplicated bookmarks and none of the more recent ones.

What is happening, and is there anything I can do to fix it?

However, in this version (FF 88.0.1 (64 bit) for Ubuntu), there is no such option listed.

I have some mistaken email addresses saved in the system (somewhere) which I would like to correct/delete as appropriate but am having an issue finding them.

Is there a hidden option somewhere in the system where I can access these to make the necessary amendments?

All FYI,

The latest update from FireFox, on my Kubuntu 18.04 LTS server, disconnected and disabled all my networking, at least I thought so. Rebooting did not help! Running test I could not ping www.google.com, but found I could ping any direct IP, thus Google's DNS server: 8.8.8.8 would ping. Checking I found that the update had disabled dhclient, so re-installed dhclient then ran:

  dhclient <active port>

Used ifconfig to find the active port and now back to working.

Hate it when the developer idiots do not follow the legally mandated "Must Test" laws. Always causes problems when they do not follow the laws!

Anybody know why I can't turn the title bar off and why the screen rendering generally looks a bit flaky? I'm guessing it has something to do with the display manager that Google use and that it's not responding any of the Firefox settings. I've tried all the easy stuff like the title bar check box and other settings in about::config

Any ideas?
