Within 24 hours this weekend I was notified by my anti virus application (Avast) that they are no longer supporting Firefox browser (to concentrate on Outlook and Chrome), and a political news website that I frequent (Meidas) blocked me with a "captcha" type puzzle. The website said my browser was mimicking robot or bot use. I was presented with a puzzle requiring me to slide a tab rightward. It repeatedly told me I had slid the tab incorrectly. I believe all of this happened after an update of Firefox about the middle of last week.

I have to configure a lot of networking equipment! One day I might be working on a brand new piece of equipment and the next day trying to log into some ancient piece of equipment because I need to change something and I can't replace it yet. I'm having a major issue with the redirect even if I explicitly type HTTP it forces it to HTTPS ( and no I don't have HTTPS everywhere installed I've actually never used it ). I've noticed recently a few updates back now that if the connection cannot succeed it redirects to HTTP but it can hang up in a weird limbo where it thinks the site doesn't exist. There needs to be a toggle for local addresses explicitly typed "HTTP" to try that first. There also needs a toggle to ignore the security issues when accessing the device with a self assigned certificate as every single networking device has a self assigned a certificate and every time I need to change the setting on a router I have to agree even though I have a greed for the last 10 times when I've access the device or I just reset the device and the self signed certificate changed. And I don't know how you're gonna handle this on mobile but it almost makes using a mobile browser useless because I might as well just get the computer out even if all I have to do is change a password, SSID or just check a setting.

So local addresses need an option to lower the warning level for self signed certificates and to obey the typed protocol!

And there's some sort of bug with the Logic that detects a certificate or non-secure site that breaks when the connection drops. The only way I've been able to get around this is to go to the address bar and hit enter as a reload will not work and a reload skipping cash will not work to bring the site back up.

I've had devices that I thought weren't working only to find out they were working fine after 3 or 4 attempts and restarts only to find it's just that firefox thought the site didn't exist anymore.

And I don't have any other options because chrome is even worse with HTTPS once it gets it's vampire fangs in you're stuck it will not let you go back. And safari you might as will be undead.

Finally getting annoyed enough to write some thing as every time you go change your setting reboot device check setting log back in change saying restart log back in and you have to hit except certificate every single time.

And while I'm here Bring back the checkbox to save/ not save the certificate as I might not want to save the certificate when I know I'm going to reset the device and it's going to be totally different in the next 10 minutes. Or I might not want to save it at all like I go to a website that's misconfigured and the certificates not valid for the domain name that it's using.

I'm running the latest version of Firefox (126.0) on an iMac, OS 14.4.1. Starting a couple days ago, i was no longer to (consistently) minimize Firefox browser windows by double-clicking on the browser window title bar. I'm able to minimize the window INCONSISTENTLY and only very infrequently via double-clicking, but with no obvious pattern. This problem only occurs with Firefox. I have no problem minimizing any other browser or application windows.

My Mac OS settings are always set to "Double-click a window's title bar to minimize."

I can minimize via Command-M, but i prefer to double click. I vaguely remember this occurring on another iMac of mine some years ago, but don't remember if i found a fix, or if it went away on its own.

Hello,

I am unable to either log in or access accounts on the websites indeed.com, x.com and chatgpt's openai.com

I used different computers (Windows 10 and Windows 11), different networks (Public library and private residence), and different versions of Firefox (125 and 126.0), one browser without any add ons and another with the "uBlock Origin" one, and I kept observing captcha or human authentication related errors.

With x.com, I would pass the human verification challenge (solve 10 puzzles), and then I would get the error "Something went wrong. Due to a technical issue, we couldn't complete this request.

My rig: MacMini 2018. Macosx 13 Ventura. Safari browser.

Safari can export an HTML file for bookmarks and a CSV file for passwords. I saved them to my desktop. Trying every way I can in Firefox, FFox won't accept these file extensions. What is it looking for?

What am I missing? Seems to be no 2024 routine for this online. I'm probably in dark about something obvious.

For some reason, the bullets used to hide a password are not rendered properly in Firefox. As shown by the first uploaded image, they are displayed as big white-filled circles.

This problem does not occur on chromium-based browsers, as shown by the second uploaded image, which is a screenshot taken from chromium, on the exact same session.

I have already done the following:

  • verified that the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box is checked in my preferences. I have also tried disabling and re-enabling this option
  • launched FF in troubleshoot mode to disable extensions and hardware acceleration
  • verified that gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled is set true in my about:config

All of these attempts however failed to solve the problem.

This problem is occurring on a fresh install of a Linux distro, so I first thought that I might be missing some fonts, but the problem might lie somewhere else since the symbols are properly displayed in chromium-based browsers.
