Hi, Until recently the right click, 'save image as' method of saving a site image has worked flawlessly, now it goes into a death spiral & crashes Firefox. See image attached.

Am running Win10, 64 bit. Win is up to date. Firefox is 77.0.1 (64 bit)

Have run the diagnostics/help files suggested in the help files to no effect. Have similarly run Brave which is also doing the same thing whereas Edge doesn't seem to be affected.

Have deleted & re-installed both Firefox & Brave without change.

What am I not doing right?

Thanks

I'm having a novel problem today for the first time. Firefox is apparently using a p2p protocol, and I have no idea why. My VPN is detecting this whenever I open Firefox. I disabled all extensions, tried opening Firefox's safe mode, and it doesn't matter what tab is open. Brave browser doesn't give me this problem. My VPN's servers do not allow P2P use, so this is a big deal. Why would Firefox be setting off the p2p alarm, and how can I fix this? I'm using the newest Firefox version on windows 10.

I am running a 2008 Imac on OS 10.11.6, and using Firefox 77.0.1 (64 bit).

Much of my work is online with one website, which I log onto daily. Today, I was unable to login because I received a "Did Not Connect. Potential Security Issue." I restarted, made sure Firefox was up to date, etc. The problem repeated.

Then I tried the website in Chrome. I got the same thing. I tried it in Safari. I got the same thing.

I called the company and spoke with tech support. He was unable to recreate my problem on his PC or his Mac. He confirmed that there was no certificate issue at the company and that they were not getting any other similar complaints or problems.

I then tried it on a Mac running 10.15, and was able to access the website easily, with no error messages.

My question is: is the problem my computer, and not the browsers or connections? Is there anything I can do short of buying a new computer?

Thanks for the help. Greg

When I click print in Firefox and chose Paperless Printer it would start and run the program. By doing this I save on paper and ink plus I can save in any format that Paperless Printer has. It used to work until approximately a month ago. Paperless Printer still works in I.E. and MS Edge. I've reinstalled P.P. and I also tried refreshing Firefox but nothing helped. Paperless Printer shows as a printer in the list and when chosen the PP program would open up and take over the printing needs and then just store the created file. Now Firefox starts to ready the page(s) to print but PP doesn't open up.

Hackers have taken control of my Firefox and are maliciously using developer mode to alter settings and change behavior. They have hidden help/feedback icon so I can't send emergency info to firefox. They repeatedly change privacy settings for gmail on firefox to capture/alter my emails. They turn off my google sign in which has protected mode always on so they can load porn, inflammatory politics or foreign crap onto my youtube "recommended videos." They have posed as me and signed up for "developer" software in firefox that manipulates the entire account. They used a different email address and sign in to github on my own computer to do this, and I don't know the email address and can't do this. All of the info in my firefox account is now repeatedly tampered with. They also pose as developers throughout my computer and maliciously change everything. My computer is for an individual, myself who isn't part of any organization and shouldn't have organization "administrators. Can't firefox recognize that these are hackers and eliminate them?

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

I started using Firefox for the first time last week and yesterday I decided to update my computer (Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4), and once the update was finished I saw a ? instead of the Firefox icon. I was still able to open the app, but it was as if everything was completely reset. "Welcome to Firefox" page, had been signed out of my account -- and even when I signed in, I got an email that a "new" device was logging in, and my entire account had been wiped of all extensions, bookmarks, settings, etc.

Thankfully, I was able to recover an older version of my profile to replace the deleted bookmarks, browser history, and most (but not all) of my settings -- but I absolutely do not want this to happen every time I update my computer, and I don't even understand why this happened in the first place. No browser I've ever used has just erased all my data and history when all I did was install a minor update to my OS. Not a great first impression tbh, but if I can prevent it from ever happening again that would help.

The website https://www.finanznachrichten.de collects financial news from publishers all over the world. Some news are just a link to the publisher's website - this works still fine. Some news can be read directly on the webpage fully. But some articles are NOT displayed fully - only the beginning of the text is displayed followed by a link "Den vollständigenArtikel lesen...." (in english: "Read the full article..." ) This link leads to the full article on the publisher's website. My problem is: This link is NOT DISPLAYED anymore in firefox in all news of this kind on this website. But is was normally displayed in older versions of firefox. By the way: the webmaster of finanznachrichten.de wrote that THEY didn't apply any changes!!!

I just update firefox each time a new release comes up and I always keep all settings as they were before. In other browsers (IE for example) it is ALSO still displayed!!! So my idea is that a setting in firefox prevents those links from being displayed(?) Is that possible and if yes: Which settings do affect the displaying of web-links? (ad block is not the reason by the way - I verfified that) Here an example news: https://www.finanznachrichten.de/nachrichten-2020-04/49525168-nestle-aktie-ein-klarer-gewinner-503.htm Below the text other browsers display the mentioned full-article-link but firefox doesn't anymore. Any idea in the community?
