I know most people are trying to stop location services permissions, but I like letting sites like Yelp, etc, know where I am so they can use "current location." I have tried to use the privacy settings to add websites that I allow location permission, but that part of the site doesn't work for me. I can't add any websites in the box. I'm very smart, but I can't figure this out. I need a super intensely simplified step-by-step lesson to figure it out. I've been trying for 2 weeks on my own and am ready to dump firefox for chrome, where I can allow location permissions very easily. Please help me. Thanks.

I have Win 8.1 and just upgraded to Firefox vs 67.0 64 Bit which is, and has been my default browser for years and now can't open links in Outlook 2010.

I don't use IE so why would that even help?

I had no problem with the links in vs. 66...so should I go back to an earlier version, and is that even a selectable item(?) and from some of the responses, that didn't even help.

Logically, I'm leaning to go back anyway to earlier version but was hoping someone can provide some info that CAN AND WILL FIX THIS PROBLEM...any help will be greatly appreciated! thanks

Upgraded my computer to the latest version 1903 (build 18362.30). Firefox would no longer work. Starts but freezes immediately. Freezes when it tries to start in safe mode.

I have tried following all of the uninstall, reinstall instructions I could find and even went so far as to remove all Mozilla related folders from my profile and all references to the program/path in registry. Restarted each time I made a change (remove, registry change).

Problem persists and I can't get it to do anything. I tried another computer with the same OS and build and it is working fine. The only significant difference between my computer and the test computer is the video card (onboard Intel for the one that works, AMD Radeon HD 6570 with four monitors for the one with issues). I have full admin rights on my computer and our network. The version I installed is 67.0 x64. I have never had this type of an issue with Firefox in the past.

Both machines use Symantec Endpoint Protection (SBS Cloud Version). I did try an install and running with endpoint protection disabled but to no avail.

Any help would be appreciated.

Were are experiencing a issue with barcodes. We have tracked the issues down to Firefox version 67. Problem is that the barcode will show before you print, but when you print, the barcode disappears.

I have noticed a couple of times recently that when I try to Bookmark All Tabs (I usually use Ctrl+Shift+D) it missed some. This may be because I Have been wanting to do it to:

- Open all tabs from Synced Tabs, then bookmark all tabs (because FF Beta for Android has no way to bookmark all tabs (that I can find))

- Reopen tabs I had just sent to OneTab, then bookmark all tabs

Maybe I am hitting Ctrl+Shift+D too soon after I have opened all the tabs. I have been waiting a few seconds to see that the tabs are definitely open, but especially if there are a lot of tabs I want to simply save as bookmarks, and get on with something else, I don't want to have to wait for every page to fully load - that could take ages and how will I know without eyballing everyone. (When I've only just sent them to OneTab, then reopened, why are they not cached but that's a different issue.)

Recently I have been saving all bookmarks, then counting the open tabs vs the new bookmarks. This is a dumb thing to have to do manually.

Presumably the reason it is failing to catch all is due to them not having yet loaded fully or something.

Ideally this can be fixed, but at least if I know what FF needs to successfully bookmark all open tabs (which it does do sometimes even before every single one has fully loaded), I can work around that functional shortcoming.

I'm sharing data, but this has happened on another PC too - much higher spec than this one I'm using today.

I sure would! If I could volunteer in any way to make this happen by January 31st, 2021, that would be great! I'd love it to look modern for the next several versions of Firefox for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Same is true for Fenix for Android. I, for one, am very compassionate about the active development of both those web browsers. One way the Awesome Bar can be changed for the better is to put more emphasis on webpages we've tagged in our Firefox bookmarks. I always add tags to any webpage that has important information like https://www.visitmaryland.org/list/great-maryland-beaches.

I am used to having 30+ tabs open in Firefox. When I close and then reopen Firefox, they're all there.

Until yesterday. Now only a half-dozen or so appear. I THINK they're the first half-dozen from my previous session.

Also, I can't find a way to restore the previous session. That option is not in my Menu. My History has lots of previously used tabs, but I can't find the ones I want ... especially the ones I haven't actually used for some time.

I recently bought a new PC which forced me to "upgrade" from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I don't think that's the problem, though. Firefox installed fine and worked fine on the new computer until I powered down a couple of days ago -- then powered back up and restarted Firefox....

I'm not aware of having upgraded to a new Firefox, unless that happened automatically.

I saw a Q&A from Martha that seemed relevant. But she uses a Mac, and I'm on a PC. Also, I didn't understand and couldn't begin to follow the recommendations she was given. I'm a 75-year-old IT ignoramus. I really need very simple step-by-step instructions ... or somebody to take over my computer and solve the problem for me ... or I guess I could wait till one of my grandchildren knows how to help....

In a nutshell, I have two problems: 1. Firefox is no longer restoring all my tabs when I reopen it. 2. I can't find "Restore previous session" to restore my tabs manually.

Thanks!

I recently removed and re-added (with a new sync name) a device from and to my Firefox Sync account. Then I checked to make sure the device (the old name) is disconnected from manage account page. Later I noticed that in the "Send Tab to Device" list I still have that old name listed (along with the new name) and in the "Synced Tabs" list I still see the old device with a page that was presumably open when I originally disconnected it.

Is there anything I can remove the old devices from the Send and Sync Tab lists given that there's nothing in my account list of devices to Disconnect?

Thanks

I use multiple profiles for work and personal browsing, and it's very important that I know which window will open a link when I click it.

I do this today on Chrome by focusing on the browser I want to receive the link before clicking it. Otherwise you have to constantly copy/paste a link from one window into another, which is a huge time waste.

This is today, the only thing that is stopping me from moving from Chrome to Firefox. Perhaps I missed something when I tried doing this in the past. Is there a setting or something else that can get Firefox to have a similar behavior?

If I select "Save files to" all downloads are successful, but if the option is set to "Always ask me where to save files" Firefox will freeze when I try to select a location for the file or when Save is selected. I have tried the following without success: 1) Start Firefox in Safe Mode (sometimes downloads complete, sometimes it freezes) 2) Refresh Firefox (sometimes downloads complete, sometimes it freezes) 3) Create a new clean Profile (sometimes downloads complete, sometimes it freezes) 4) Turn Hardware Acceleration off (does not help) 5 Disabling Shockwave Flash doe not help. No Crash Report is generated since Firefox freezes with the message "Firefox is not responding." I do not experience this problem in Chrome. The freeze usually happens as soon as I select "Save File" but sometimes as late as when the download starts. I would appreciate any suggestions as I am out of ideas and getting very frustrated.
