I am using a third party theme for an admin/dashboard area and everything works fine except in Firefox. When I try to perform a particular action I get this error in console:

unreachable code after return statement

This is the code it seems to be complaining about...

         handleDropPosition: function() {
                if (dropdown.options.dropAuto == true) {
                    if (Plugin.isInVerticalViewport() === false) {
                        if (dropdown.currentDropPos == 'up') {
                            dropdown.currentDropPos = 'down';
                        } else if (dropdown.currentDropPos == 'down') {

Hi Experts,

I just recently purchased a MacBook Air for myself to learn more about the operating system and how to use it, so my knowledge of how to configure things in it is pretty elementary, if non existant.

I have a problem I can't seem to find a suitable solution with google. On my install, I have 3 icons that appear as Question marks instead of their icons. Please see example image below.

Icons are a Question Mark
Can anyone explain how I can resolve this, so that the Grammarly, Firefox and Skype icons appear as they should?

Please note: Including any screenshots with your comments if possible (that you think may be helpful) would be a real bonus for me and much appreciated at this stage of my learning curve ;-)
Hi guys

In October, our Symantec EV SSL certificate will be dis-trusted in Chrome and in Firefox, meaning anyone who visits our website will get a certificate error before being able to browse the site. Not great for an ecommerce website!

The current EV SSL certificate is due to expire in December, but to avoid this issue, we’ll need to renew by October 16th at the very latest.

We have two options:

1.      Purchase a new EV SSL certificate from a different provider, such as Comodo.
2.      Switch to using the wildcard certificate that we have for our website. This will mean we no longer have an EV SSL certificate for .

Option number 2 is the cheapest and easiest option, but it means we lose our EV SSL certificate, including all of the security and visual elements of this (such as green browser bar). This apparently affects conversion, as greater customer trust in the website means they are more likely to buy.

Any alternatives or suggestions that you have?

Thank you
My company redirects a user based on if they are logged into Facebook or not. But we are having cross browser issues and I need another set of eyes.

Firefox blocks the connection to Facebook if tracking protection is on, not sure if I can get around that. I just need a popup to open even if login status fails. I tried a delayed meta refresh and that didn't even work.

	  window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
	    FB.init({appId: '' . $fb_app_id . '', status: true, cookie: true, xfbml: true});
	    FB.getLoginStatus(function(f) {
		if (!f && f.status) return;
		       if (f.status == 'connected') {
				var url = "";
				url = new URL(url);, "_self");
		        } else if (f.status == 'not_authorized') {
				var url = "";
				url = new URL(url);, "_self");
		       } else {
				var url = "";
				url = new URL(url);, "_self");
	  (function() {
	    var e = document.createElement('script'); e.async = true;
	    e.src = document.location.protocol +

I'm having an odd pop-up problem with Firefox (61.0.2 64-bit on a Windows 10 system). Only on a few websites, a pop-up appears covering most of the screen with the rest of the web page visible but darkened. The pop-up has an "X" in the upper right corner but clicking it has no effect. The pop-up cannot be closed. The underlying web page may be read by scrolling it "beneath" the pop-up. The only way I have found to remove the pop-up is to close that tab on Firefox.

One website where this happens frequently is, especially when looking at a restaurant-review page on the site. (It can take a minute or so for the pop-up to appear.) Attached is a combined screenshot showing the complete webpage with the pop-up present and the Firefox detail for the pop-up image.

Restarting Firefox with all add-ons disable has no effect.

Does anyone know how to get the pop-up "X" active so the pop-up can be removed?

Thanks, Pete
Summary: Firefox does not display some web pages properly on Windows 10 64-bit PC. Significant troubleshooting already done. Looking for a solution.


I am trying to come back to Firefox after getting frustrated with Chrome. I installed the latest 32-bit version (64.0.1) although I also saw the same problem with the latest 64-bit version (now uninstalled.)

The New York Times ( home page displays properly. Pages inside their website do not display properly. I see the page briefly and then it disappears and the browser window is entirely a white screen. The pages display normally in Chrome and Internet Explorer. Here are some example URLs:

This also occurs with some other web pages. For example, on the following page none of the text displays on Firefox:

Clicking the Read Mode icon produces a mostly-blank page with the statement that the file failed to load.

There is no redirection – Firefox does not forward to any other page – it just displays a blank page with the expected URL.

The only extensions installed are: AdBlock Plus, Copy PlainText, LastPass. The only plugins installed are OpenH264 and Widevine, as automatically installed by Firefox.

I have a crashed computer and I have pulled the hard drive and plugged it into a device and I can see the hard disk now as a drive letter and on another computer and I can access all files.  Is there a location that I can find firefox, IE, and Chrome bookmarks?
I need to get into a test server that that has woocommerce on it.  Originally it had an ssl cert but now it doesn't.  I keep getting this error in Firefox 61.

I have tried this in other browsers too and get a similar result.  I have access to the db and I have removed the https from the site url and the home link.  I have deleted the cookies corresponding to the url I am using to access the dashboard.

Searching wp_options for ssl I get these rows -

I did use Really Simple SSL as a plugin but don't know how to turn if off with access to the dashboard.

I just need to get into the dashboard and check some settings.  Can anyone help me get into my dashboard?

Hi Experts,

Each year I have data in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet which I want to enter into forms on several webpages for filing tax.  No logging in is required.
The solution will need to give me the opportunity to manually check the entries made on each page before submitting it (but if I find a problem I'm willing to abort, fix it, and restart if needed).

This is the first webpage that needs to be submitted:

I don’t think I’ll bother posting my input data (the spreadsheet) because its layout is flexible and I don’t think we need to get into that level of detail.  I am a programmer, but I’m wanting ideas on what tools to use, and the basics of reading the data from the spreadsheet and transferring it to the webpage.  Maybe a bit of code to get started would be helpful.

Would AutoIt be a good choice for this?  If so, should I basically follow this tutorial from 2016, installing the extra bits of software recommended in it?  If so, how would I read the data from the spreadsheet?
Or would iMacros but a good choice?  I would have thought it wouldn't.

Environment & limitations:
-      Windows XP (yes, all the latest technology).
-      Firefox 52 ESR.
-      Can’t use IE (which is version 8 and can't be upgraded in XP) because the webpage doesn’t seem to support it.
-      I’m only interested in free options.

Hello Experts,

Does anyone  know of either a paid or free service that lists high-risk private VPN services? We would like to see if there is a good one to use to integrate with our firewall. BTW, my suggestion was to put a WAF up I have been asked to explore IP intelligence services first.

Thank you,

Hello Experts,
We have an internal domain 2012 CA and recently we issued a new certificate to intercept the SSL traffic between client and Bluecoat SG Proxy

We can open websites through Google Chrome and IE  but in Firefox  leads to a warning about not a valid certificate authority.

All our domain computers using Firefox receiving the error.

How this can be solved ?
Appreciating any help and suggestions.
Experts, I have started working on Selenium and would need your help in finding XPATH of webpage elements in browsers. If there is any tutorial using which I can help find the right xpath to elements using developer tools, it will greatly help. Thanks.

Just to add, I have used the chrome Inspect Element -> XPath option, but would like to know if there are other non-browser tools or plugins which are more friendlier and descriptive.
I use Google Chrome. I want to be able to store a group of Bookmarks that I can click and have all those pages open up.  Is there a way to do this? Via plugin?
(I used to use Firefox, which has that ability built-in.)

For example, if I am working on web development, I want the fastest way to open 4 or 5 Browser windows easily: Domain Registrar, Control Panel, CRM with my customers in it ...etc
THEN if I switch to balancing my Checkbook, I want to open Browser windows with Quicken,, my Bank's website ... etc
THEN back to Web Development ...
I would like to block a website on a Windows 10 pc without it being obvious to the user. Better if the site just endlessly buffers than if it shows a blocked message.
Browsers used are IE, Chrome and Firefox.
Can this be done in Windows firewall or need 3rd party app?
