Textbox caret stops blinking after a few seconds

In the past the caret in text entry fields used to blink/pulsate/flash forever in both Firefox and Thunderbird. (Text entry boxes, such as the browser URL-bar, the e-mail To/Subject/Content textboxes, online forms, etc.). Now in the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox 110.0.1 and Thunderbird 102.8.0 the caret stops blinking after just a few seconds. This is very confusing and frustrating for my grandmother and she already called me several times because Firefox and Thunderbird 'stopped working'. I explained to her that this is a new feature but she does not understand and keeps forgetting it after a few days. She is used to the cared blinking continuously, it has been blinking for the past decades whenever she wanted to type something in the computer and it only stopped blinking when the computer program froze or crashed.

I am sure that my grandma is not the only person having issues with the caret not flashing, I for one also would like to have a caret that blinks forever, so when I look away from the screen and look back I do not have to search the text to find where I left my caret.

Please make it so that the default caret appearance and behavior is the same as in all other programs (i.e. blinking forever), as it used to be in the past, just like what everyone is used to. I argue that the majority of users is used to and also expects a blinking caret when they are writing an e-mail or search online and you are confusing a whole lot of people with this minor change, people who do not know how to report bugs or seek help themselves. It's a sign of poor user-friendliness if grandmas need to call their grandchildren or children for help just to write e-mails which they used to be able to do on their own for many years in the past.

I hereby suggest adding an accessibility option for people who wish to disable the blinking cursor and to change the default behavior back to 'caret flashing forever'.

When I do a Google search on a calculation, such as "1+1" or even "sin(pi/3)/e^(-1.125)", Google returns a calculator with the answer. This is REALLY helpful. I've confirmed this behavior on Chrome and Edge on Windows 11.

However, Firefox does not seem to display the returned calculator.

I've attached 3 screenshots, each showing the calculator (Chrome and Edge) and the lack of a calculator (Firefox).

Why is Firefox not displaying the search's calculator and result?

My FF is set up to: - Always ask you where to save files - Open PDF in Firefox

On normal PDF links, FF opens the PDF normally without downloading (or after downloading it silently in a temporary location invisible to me). On "Force Download" links, FF downloads the PDF to the Download folder without asking where to save it. This is for example the case when clicking "Download" on a file in Gmail. If I click "Download" in Gmail on another file type that I have not set to "Open in Firefox", FF does ask me where to save it.

My expectation would be that, if the file cannot be opened in the browser, then FF would revert to the user's chosen behavior of "Always ask you where to save files".

Since about two months ago, I haven't been able to update Firefox(or any other browser for that matter). I've tried the typical method of going to Preferences, checking for updates, but I can't get passed that point. I get this error message stating "Failed to check for updates."

Chrome was giving me much of the same issue, I've allowed GoogleUpdate on my firewall rules, restarted the PC and tried again. Still got the same error message. I have no other antivirus software installed on this device other than the Windows Defender default app. Firefox hasn't told what I should be allowing past my firewall so I haven't tried anything similar for Firefox.

I also tried uninstalling Firefox, but when I tried to reinstall, I couldn't finish that process because clicking on Download Now led me to this error message stating "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at download.mozilla.org."

I assumed this was maybe a DNS issue. I tried a DNS flush but that also was ineffective. I tried changing my DNS servers to 1.1.1.1 and 1.1.1.2, also tried other known DNS servers but that didn't work either.

In the meantime, I'd like to at least get an offline installer going because my current version is 110.0.1.

Thank you.

I've tried resolving this issue after looking at various solutions here on this site as well as other sites. The message "Your browser is being managed by your organization" shows in my settings, However, when I go to the Policies thread in the registry - whether it's under Local Machine or Local User - there is no policy registry entry for Firefox or Mozilla.

Please advise. This is really annoying.

Thanks in advance.

Reinstall Firefox, and all the guides, is tested - no luck.

I really love Firefox, and have used it, for many years, but this slow experience - that will scare me away.

Hi,

I am trying to setup firefox to my liking automatically To this end, I am using "firefox profile maker" and it works great but I'm having issues adding all the add-ons that I like.

Only the add-ons that are included in ffprofile make seem to install properly (but also, now I can't uninstall them ??)

Anyway here is my full process for installing firefox automatically and then configuring it automatically. Perhaps you can hep me figure it out.

First I install firefox automatically using the offline installer (my computers do not have access to internet by default, I must whitelist each computer, then individual software then individual websites first)

So, I obtain the offline installer from this URL https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/111.0/win64/en-CA/Firefox%20Setup%20111.0.exe

Next I have used the website https://ffprofile.com/ to create a pre-made profile

This yields two files, and their contents profile.zip

profile\prefs.js profile\extensions\CanvasBlocker@kkapsner.de.xpi profile\extensions\uBlock0@raymondhill.net.xpi enterprise_policy.zip defaults\pref\autoconfig.js distribution\policies.json firefox.cfg

Next, I have pre-downloaded added all the add-on files I would like to install to the add-on folder However, when I perform the procedure, only canvas blocker and uBlock0 get installed

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. If I take all the add-on files, dump them all into firefox, it opens 16 tabs On each tab I can now click add and click okay, if I do it right and quick enough, they all install, unless I miss one.

That's over 50 clicks and very annoying !


Here is the list of add-ons I'm trying to add

extensions\umibo-2.4.2.xpi extensions\amp2html-2.1.0.xpi extensions\close_tabs_right-1.2.4.xpi extensions\cookie_autodelete-3.8.2.xpi extensions\copy_tabs-1.12.35.xpi extensions\darkreader-4.9.62.xpi extensions\facebook_container-2.3.9.xpi extensions\google_container-1.5.4.xpi extensions\istilldontcareaboutcookies-1.1.1.xpi extensions\merge_window-1.0.2.xpi extensions\old_reddit_redirect-1.6.1.xpi extensions\order_tabs_by_domain-0.2.3.xpi extensions\privacy_badger17-2023.1.31.xpi extensions\spoof_geolocation-0.1.1.xpi extensions\tab_manager_plus_for_firefox-5.2.0.xpi extensions\traduzir_paginas_web-9.6.1.xpi

I have created a script that I run after installing firefox using this command

"Firefox Setup 111.0.exe" /S

Then I run the following script to automatically install my pre-made profile

Firefox-deploy-ffprofile.bat


@echo off set z7EXE=%PROGRAMFILES%\7-Zip\7z.exe set EnterpriseConfig=firefox-profile\enterprise_policy.zip set ProfileConfig=firefox-profile\profile.zip set FirefoxProfile= set FirefoxInstallFolder=%PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla Firefox\ set FirefoxProfilesFolder=%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

The problem is that every time I try to do a search it makes me prove I'm not a robot. There is a message : "Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?"

When I click on "Why did this happen" I get this:

"This page appears when Google automatically detects requests coming from your computer network which appear to be in violation of the Terms of Service. The block will expire shortly after those requests stop. In the meantime, solving the above CAPTCHA will let you continue to use our services.

This traffic may have been sent by malicious software, a browser plug-in, or a script that sends automated requests. If you share your network connection, ask your administrator for help — a different computer using the same IP address may be responsible. Learn more

Sometimes you may be asked to solve the CAPTCHA if you are using advanced terms that robots are known to use, or sending requests very quickly. "

This is happens on my Lap Top PC, I only have it on once in a while, I usually use my desktop and no problems with it. I have done all the recommended things, like clearing cache, delete all cookies, used Troubleshoot mode, did a install refresh, etc . All with no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello. First of all, does anyone know where a list of supported query terms for smart bookmarks could be found?

I already know some, such as "sort=" and "maxResults=", but would like to see a full list.

Second, would it be possible to use smart bookmarks to show a list of visited websites whose URLs match a pattern such as "food.com/*doughnuts*"? That is, all websites from food.com that also have the term doughnuts in the URL?

If I go into Settings and choose applications then content type: mailto the same options are there- nothing for Yahoo Mail.

It used to be there, now it has gone.

Using version 110.0.1

Is there any way to manually add Yahoo mail to Firefox?

Installed Ffx on my Win 10. Works Great. Installed on Win 11. Cannot find Norton Safe Search as an extension or as a search engine.

I clicked on a link in Win 11 and almost got into a malicious site. Would not have done so with Norton SS because it shows colored bubbles by each link. Would have seen a red bubble.

How can I get it to work in Ffx?

Thank you.

I am new to Firefox, and have just discovered that in order to open a new private window I must use the Ctrl + Shift + P keyboard shortcut which is pretty much impossible to accomplish with one hand. I tried to use this extension:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/shortkeys/

But sadly my new added shortcuts were not opening the new private window while the ctrl + shift + p still worked, and it appears that this extension is only able to add new shortcuts and not change nor delete the existing ones. I want to assign a comfortable keyboard shortcut for opening a we private window (optionally unassign the Ctrl + Shift + N from Undo close window and assign that keyboard to open a new private window).

Please help.

When using firefox I've turned on some form of shortcut or stickey key that when I accidentally catch the Ctrl key and a letter it opens various shortcuts and the machine makes a bing sound.

I can't work out how to turn it off. I've looked at the windows settings under "Accessibility/keyboard" and sticky keys is turned off.

This appears to be something specific to Firefox but I don't know what it is and how to turn it off or whether it can even be disabled.

Attached are some images of the things that have popped up when this occurs. This may help you work out what's happening and how to therefore turn it off.

Thanks in advance.
