Is there any way to recover the forwarded emails?

When a URL no longer exits, I get a 'redirect' and even it it does, sometimes it "steps on' the correct URL and several attempts are needed to get the correct URL to stick. The "net" gives instructions of: Step 1: Click the "Tools" menu tab in your Firefox browser and select "Options." Step 2: Select "Advanced" from the list of options at the top of the window.

But in Firefox release 83.xxx, "ADVANCED" option does not exist or I can not SEE it. Any idea on how to 'BLOCK REDIRECTS' and just get an error instead?

OR SIMPLE BLOCK URLS one just does not like without using the PARENTAL CONTROLS.

Hi everyone,

I've recently migrated to a new laptop and noticed, after setting up Firefox, that Twitter embeds weren't working on some websites. After some investigation, it seems related to my Enhanced Tracking Settings.

For example, I can get the embeds to appear if I change my Enhanced Tracking Settings to Standard, or if I set them to Custom and disable either of the following:

  • Tracking cookie protection
  • Tracking content protection

Interestingly, leaving the Enhanced Tracking settings as Strict (or Custom equivalent), and disabling Enhanced Tracking Protection for the particular site, doesn't work ...

Is this a bug? Or have I misunderstood how this (exception) mechanism works?

Here's the page I was looking at: https://www.vice.com/en/article/4ad3qp/donald-trump-tiny-desk-electoral-college

Could someone else try experimenting with their settings and see what renders on that article?

Best regards, Ed

Ok, been having these issue like for a really long time, gaving up and switched to chrome for that time being and now even chrome has some bad issue so I am attempting to switch back. I know a lot of us are having the same problem with Kaspersky internet security, they said the next patch would fix it and I am sure the patch arrived. But firefox still has the above issue, and let me clarify the issues; youtube becoming weird, limited suggestion, and sometime shows I am not signed in which I am, and if you keep refreshing it, it would go back and forth in between your account and not signed in.... moreover, I can't type any comment, always with a returned error.... and finally, whenever I am logging in into my hotmail, my machine keeps prompting for security certificate clarification or something.... please help, its been a long while, trying to reinstall both the firefox and chrome, they both still have their respective issues..... thank you

Recently, when I start my Windows 10Pro desktop and I bring up Firefox or click on a URL in an Outlook mail (which starts Firefox), I notice I am logged out of Firefox and have to re-login into my account. I am currently using Firefox version 83.0. This behavior may have started a month or so ago(it is now Nov,29, 2020) before I really started to pay attention to this issue.

Of course during the last several months there have been Windows updates and Firefox updates, so it is difficult to pin this down to a specific set of circumstances.

Once I login into my account, I can close Firefox and re-open or re-start Firefox and I am logged in automatically, as I have always been before. Now when I power off the desktop and re-start the next day I am logged out of my Firefox account.

The only add-ons I have are Ghostery and Google translate.

Any idea what is going on here or what to check for? Thanks.

1: Sometimes when middle-clicking a link to open it in another tab, it will open the new tab with the address of the link I clicked, in the background, but not load it at all.

2: Sometimes when clicking a link (to open in the current tab), it does nothing at all, or selecting an option in a dropdown box won't refresh the page with the new information (for example, zandesk dropdown menus for bug reporting for a developer's game will select the item, but not reload the page with the now relevant boxes to fill out- happens everywhere, noticed it there).

3: Pages will stop loading before they've actually finished loading, like Firefox is cancelling the load because "it's taking too long". I have 400kbps, Firefox, I'm in no rush to STOP loading a page that I'm trying to load...

I closed firefox (all three windows), and when I reopened it, it opened the two background windows... but NOT the main window that had all my tabs and pages and projects. Thanks, Firefox.

I *could* go through my History, and see if I remember WHEN I accessed each tab, and TRY to rebuild it, but that is INSANELY ANNOYING and takes upwards an HOUR.

I had to update firefox to current version to pay a bill on a web site. I did it. I was recommended to sync another device during install, I did that too. I worked for a few hours on firefox just now, then it crashed. It reported data it had but now I have nothing. No history, no bookmarks, NOTHING. I logged in, my username and password worked find but it's like a fresh install, no data. Over 10 years of history, hundreds and hundreds of pages and passwords all gone. I synched to my phone as it insisted I install another device. Supposedly that was done but I have no idea how to use that or what it can do. They claimed it was a backup.

I'm at a total loss.

After enabling gfx.webrender.all (value true in about:config), there is no more tearing in web sites like google street view. But all my extensions, while working, offer an empty dialog pop-uo when I left click on their icon in Firefox main bar. UBlock origin, HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger or Joplin all act with the same behavior. See screenshot. If I disable gfx.webrender.all all my extensions dialogs are back.

I had gfx.webrender.all set to true before version 83.0 of Firefox and my extensions were working fine.

When i switch on my computer i have to make sure that i open Firefox and restore the previous session before i do anything else.

For example, if you click on a link in an email - and if Firefox is not open - then it will open Firefox and you have lost access to your previous session tabs.

Yesterday, when i switched on the computer Adobe wanted to remove a program - so i uninstalled the program and then it opened a page in Firefox so i lost 50 tabs. Sigh.

SUGGESTION As well as having the option to restore the previous session could we please have the option to restore the session before that? I think this will make a lot of people very happy.

On my home network, I run a Ubiquiti UniFi Network (Security Gateway, Switch and WiFi Access Points). I access the administrative functions with UniFi Controller software which accesses those functions via https://localhost:8443. The Gateway Roouter itself is at 10.0.0.1:443, but cannot be administered at this address.

When I try to access the website, I get the standard Firefox invalid security certificate warning as the certificate is self-signed (image 1). Once I Accept the Risk and Continue, I can successfully log into the site. But once I quit my Firefox session, whenever I launch Firefox and try to access the site, I am again given the same invalid security certificate.

Previously, I was able to create a certificate exception which bypassed that warning, but no longer.

When I go into Firefox's Preferences : Privacy & Security : Certificates : View Certificates page, I can see a Temporary exception (image 2), which presumably only lasts for the current session. I try to Add Exception, enter my localhost port number' (image 3), then click on Get Certificate. It tells me that I have valid, verified identification. There is no need to add an exception (image 4).

And yet, every time I visit the localhost website, I am prompted with the warning. Any ideas of what I might do avoid this warning every time I want to access it? Is there some way to allow this device (or even ALL devices) on my home network to be trusted?

Also attached are images of my UniFi Certificate.

Thank you for any assistance.
