I have set four custom URLs to open each time I use my main Firefox profile - this works well. (I have several different profiles I use for different roles and sets of logins).

I frequently open new windows to hold a set of associated tasks.

If I specifically open a link into a new window, the new window only has that one tab - all good.

However, if I just open a new window (Ctrl-N), Firefox always opens four new duplicate tabs for my custom URLs.

Is there a way to limit custom URLs to the first window opened in a profile or to open custom URLs only if they are not already open in at least one window?

Hi! I just moved over to Firefox from a different browser, and there this minor thing that I noticed. Whenever I put a video on full screen, it looks like it alters the aspect ratio of my screen? Like there are black bars at the left and right of my screen instead of it filled all the way. Its very minor but it bugs me every time. Is there a way to fix this or not? Thank you!

I am using a Macbook Air M2 btw.

Firefox beta release: 116.0b6 (64-bit)

On sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com I am not getting the normal cookie consent pop-up option which used to automatically show on opening the sites. Other sites are still showing the cookie consent option pop-ups. This means I cannot select if I wish to accept or reject cookies on several sites that used to allow me the option.

In checking about:config, the cookiebanners.service.mode is set to 1, which I believe this the correct setting for enabling the cookies consent pop-up option.

Is there any fix for the cookie consent pop-up not working on certain sites within the EU? I am not using a VPN or pop-up blocker. Tracking protection is set to Standard, cookies and site data are always deleted on closing Firefox and "Do Not Track” signal is set to always. Deleting all installed FF extensions has no effect either.

In other browsers on the same PC, Chrome and Edge, the cookie consent option does still work as it should on the sites mentioned. In Firefox it doesn't.

This is only happening on one PC. My latop has the same FF beta build installed and is not showing this behaviour, it still automatically shows the cookie consent pop-ups when visiting sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com.

Firefox 116.0.2 64bit on Windows 11 Pro 22621.2134

I noticed today that a video hosted on the website Reddit has subtitles on it. When I view the video in other browsers it does not have subtitles. Why are subtitles being generated in Firefox for this video? Is there a way I can disable these subtitles? While often useful, the subtitles in this case just get in the way.

If URLs are allowed one example is here: https://v.redd.it/z7tekckuy9hb1

Thanks.

A new version of Firefox was installed yesterday and now my Adblocker Ultimate is blocking content on some sites. For example, I can no longer see my local digital newspaper and photos on the Eddie Bauer website no longer load. If I turn adblocker off, the website loads correctly. These sites, and others, have worked fine for years. How can I fix this without turning adblocker off?

Enhanced Tracking Protection NOT Detecting Trackers on All Sites I Visit

Hi,

I have come across an issue where the Enhanced Tracking Protection (ETP) feature has stopped working on every single website I visit.

Every website I visit, the ETP icon is greyed out and not detecting any trackers.

For instance, when visiting the independent website, the ETP icon usually glows blue to indicate there are trackers. However, now, it is just greyed out, which is incorrect.

So far, I have done the following troubleshooting steps to fix the issue, but I have had no success:

  • Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox
  • Signed out and signed back in
  • Disabled and removed all extensions
  • Cleared cookies, cache, history, site settings, etc.
  • Opened Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode (with extensions disabled)
  • Deleted my profile/files and created a new one

I have also checked this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1327504

Can someone please help me with this, as I have no idea what else to do to fix this issue?

I started Firefox from scratch with a new profile, and the ETP worked for a short period, but when I closed and restarted Firefox, it just stopped working on every single site - this keeps persisting.

Any help would be appreciated!

So I cannot change any Update settings. ATM Firefox (now version 116) updates automatically and some tabs (youtube) stop working without any indication why. I would like to disable automatic updates but I can't. (AFAIK)

Why?

I got the v116.0 update yesterday and since then, there's been some annoying hiccups with loading webpages.

It's not a specific site that is having an issue and it seems completely random. The best I can say is that if I just do websearches from the default Duckduckgo engine or if I use !g to search google through it, eventually i'll hit the hiccup.

What seems to happen is that i'll try to go to the website/perform a search and then it will just load a blank white page and hang there. None of the browsing function buttons will be available (so can't click refresh) but if I highlight the address bar and hit enter again, it will suddenly load without issue.

I just upgraded my Ubuntu 18.04 to 20.04 and found that Firefox (which was working perfectly before), does not work properly. Graphics (eg. profile pics on various websites) are not displayed, buttons of websites are often missing, some websites are displayed in a weird "zoomed out" way.

With Google Chrome, I don't have these issues so it does not seem to be a Linux thing...

I already tried reinstalling Firefox, but to no avail...

Help is appreciated as I would not want to migrate away from Firefox which has worked well for me for years...

Regards!

Since a few days, it is not possible to copy-and-paste any external text or content into the text field of WhatApp Web on Firefox. It works fine on Chrome. Also text manually copied from a previous WA message can be pasted.

We tried on other PCs with Firefox and Chrome, same situation. So it seems to be a problem of Firefox latest version.

Last October my sessions were gone after a Firefox Update. I asked for help here: https://support.mozilla.org/sv/questions/1394685 and eventually got kind help from @cor-el (that unfortunately wasn't skilled enough to understand) and from @RayGibson57. But by then, my life was in a flurry and I didn't have time to try the advice. And so, after a while I had, with some effort, gathered many of the old tabs back again, and built up new sessions.

This Monday I was trying to internet while having high fever (something people should never do :o ). I left three blank windows open when I shut down the computer, and next morning those three were the only ones Firefox wanted to remember.

(I still find this change frustrating, bordering on infuriating: what happened to "Choose how many old sessions you want Firefox to remember", I think the maximum was ten?)

Now the fevers left and I went to those answers to try. That Q/A was archived though, so I'm starting again here, from as far as I got following King Rays instructions. They were:

  1. Open the application menu (3 horizontal lines) next to the address bar.
  2. Click on Help -> More troubleshooting information.
  3. With that page open, find Profile Folder and click on Open Folder. That's how you get to the folder with backup files in it.
  4. Set computer up to see all the extensions & system files. By default, the extensions don't show up (.jsonlz4 is an extension).
  5. I found an older file in that sessionstore-backups folder and copied it one level back to the main profile folder.
  6. Renamed the sessionstore.jsonlz4 to sessionstore.jsonlz4.old and the file I copied, I renamed to sessionstore.jsonlz4.
  7. Opened Firefox and that missing window was in the history so I could open it.
  8. Don't make any typos here, because Firefox won't find the files it needs to open.

I got as far as finding the Profile folder and the sessionstore-backups folder.

But I cant find any jsonlz4 file called "sessionstore". Only a "sessionsCheckpoints" and that one is a json file, and the date modified is today.

See screenshots please!

Can anyone talk me trough this like Im a grandmother from Sweden with extremely limited coding & tech skills (which is what I am)?
