I click a magnet link and it keeps asking me what to do and I have already told it to do this automatically from now on. It even has the checkbox already ticked as if it is fkn retarded. I have refreshed firefox and nope I have uninstalled firefox and reinstalled it nope. I have checked all the forums about it and even made it so that the system cannot alter the default torrent program. Still, nothing works. I am so angry coz it used to be fine. So sick of updates that "fix" stuff... It would be nice if it just bloody worked.

Thank you.

I have a staging site for my website which is protected (not visible to the public) and requires authentication with the username and password to be accessed.

Firefox is blocking access with the authorisation window coming up empty again and again and again when I enter the credentials.

So - I have to use a different browser just to access this one site.

I have cleared the cookies and cache, removed the site from the browsing history - Firefox is still blocking the access.

how can I unblock it?

I use Windows 64 bits on my PC.

Hi, lately I have been trying to tackle my secondary HDD being spun up for no reason in the background and one thing that keeps popping up is Firefox.exe accessing a bunch of fonts contained in the Solidworks installation on the HDD (which is a secondary drive, while Firefox is installed on the primary SSD).

I really cannot understand why it happens, since I think nobody is supposed to install Solidworks along with Firefox. Of course I don't want this activity to wake up my drive, but also, is it normal? I have to admit I'm kinda worried.

I'll attach screenshots from Sysinternals Process Monitor

Thanks in advance to anyone that will help :)

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 ?

I use a Logitech MX Master 3 mouse, without any custom Logitech or other mouse software. When I press the mouse's back/forward buttons, instead of navigating back/forward, Firefox enter Scroll Mode (more info here). This is the same behaviour as when pressing the middle mouse button. However, I already have the middle mouse button for that! I want the back/forward buttons on the mouse to navigate back/forward. See the attached image for the back and forward buttons I'm referring to: they're directly under the horizontal scroll wheel.

Is there a way for Firefox to register the back/forward button presses as back/forward navigation commands?

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.

Hello,

I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

I posted this question before, and it got escalated, but there wasn't a resolution or fix suggested. I am hoping with more crash reports I can get some help finding a solution! Firefox is now crashing routinely - as in, many times each day. I am at my wits end! It's not profile-related as I sync my browser profiles and have no issues on my other computer. I did a clean install, and the crash frequently slowed for a while, but now I'm back to tearing my hair out. Please help!

Firefox v88.0.1 on Win 10 Pro 20H2 PC, Windows Security (Windows Defender). All fully up-to-date.

This problem only started recently: When link is clicked in FF to open certain pdf files, a new, fully formatted FF window opens, but the body is blank white and the pdf never loads. Doesn't happen with all pdf files listed on the "referring" page, but just some of them on a certain well-known and trusted web site, and it's very reproducible.

Setting FF to open pdf files in Adobe Reader doesn't help. Same ones open but the others still won't. Other people tell me they have no problems opening those pdf files in FF.

I completely uninstalled and re-installed FF but that didn't help. Doesn't matter how I set the security/privacy options, have Ghostery on or off (only extension installed). Use recommended performance settings is enabled, DNS over HTTPS is off, tracking protection can be standard or strict, etc.

If I click Manage Exceptions under Enhanced Tracking Protection, there's no way to enter any exceptions so I can't exempt the website in question.

If I keep trying to open one of those pdf files, FF becomes totally unresponsive. Task Manager lists ~4-5 FF entries but I can't End Task for most of them, and I typically have to reboot PC. Windows creates a firefox.dmp file which says: FAULTING_THREAD: 000012f8 PROCESS_NAME: firefox.exe ERROR_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0x80000003 - {EXCEPTION} Breakpoint A breakpoint has been reached. EXCEPTION_CODE_STR: 80000003

I've run out of things to try...

Any ideas ?
