A new problem has occurred since updating to FF 67.0.

My default configuration is to block all cookies. For those sites I wish to allow, I create exceptions to either Allow or Allow for Session.

On one of the sites I use I have an exception as: https://CompanyName.com Allow for Session (name changed to protect the innocent)

There are a number of subdomains used and so all subdomain cookies are allowed for the session.

As of FireFox 67, I could no longer log into the site. I found that it was stuck in a loop reloading the page.

If I allowed all cookies, then the login would work. Once logged in, I could block all cookies again and everything continued to work on the site. So it was only the process of logging in that was failing.

First thing I did was disable all cookie related add-ons. That didn't help. If I changed the setting for CompanyName.com to Allow, it worked. Next I tried setting CompanyName.com back to Allow for Session and tried each subdomain with the Allow. What I found was I need to change one specific subdomain to Allow, so now my exceptions list is like this: https://CompanyName.com Allow for Session https://login.CompanyName.com Allow

So it seems as though the necessary cookie for login.CompanyName.com was being removed early so the log in could not be completed. Once a log in was successful, I could look at the cookies and see them for this subdomain (as well as the others).

I can't see anything I did wrong, so I'm thinking there may be a bug somewhere in FF67.

I use an online litho and digital printer here in the UK and in My Account I have a list of past jobs and the ability to download VAT invoices. In Safari the download invoice link works but in FF it doesn't. The only Add ons I have switched on are AdBlock Plus and 1Password. In the attached screenshot you can see the blue icons on the right. URL is https://www.route1print.co.uk/ [EDIT] : FF is version 67.0 by the way.

On many pages (commercial), when I click a link to look at another page, clicking the "Go Back One Page" button results in the original page scrolling down a varying amount.

For example, I visit CNN.com. I then select an article I want to read. When reading is complete I press the "Back" button, which returns me to the original page, but also scrolls that original page, sometimes just a few lines, but also sometimes to the very bottom of the page.

This only happens on the newest (66.0) version of Firefox upgraded yesterday. It does not happen with other browsers. It does happen with Firefox started in safe mode. I also checked the carat (^) scroll in "Options" and this was not selected.

This also happens whether I use the Firefox Page Back Button, or the "Back" button on my mouse.

Thanks Doc

I am trying to transition from MS Edge to Firefox. I frequently use the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administrations weather services (for example, https://forecast.weather.gov/).

Weather maps loop (show motion) without a problem in Edge (for example, https://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?product=N0R&rid=FFC&loop=yes). But they do not show a map and they do not display an error in Foxfire.

I tried the javascript manager add-in and made https://radar.weather.gov/ and exception to allow, but it did not work, and it caused problems with other pages I use multiple times a day, so I removed it. I saw the sequence about a similar problem with he weather underground weather maps, but I as best as I can tell https://radar.weather.gov/ is not blacklisted.

How do I get NOAA's weather maps to loop (move) in Foxfire? Do I just need to give up and use Edge?

Dear Firefox,

Since the most recent update I am experiencing problems in being able to save pictures. I find an image in Google Image Search, click on it and go to save .... however it does not save. The process even prompts me to select the folder I want it saved in, the name I want to give the file and so on. I do all of these things - but there is no picture there when I go to the folder. I have tried saving to different folders but no luck. This does not happen in all cases, only on some pictures.

I find the only way i can save the picture is to click on View Image and then prompt it to save. However as my work involves finding lots of images online, this is adding several steps to the process. It is also annoying when I have to save 50+ pictures and then go back and find that maybe half-a-dozen or so are not there

I can no longer open embedded videos on the two sites listed below, videos which are redirected from YouTube via an email notification subscription (I suspect it is the same with Vimeo and other such related sites). I have tried many suggestions here on the support pages but nothing seems to work.

1. The documentary listed here on the Top Documentary Films site will not open when clicked on - https://topdocumentaryfilms.com/9-11-war-games/ - however, it works fine when clicked directly on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3noExmsCRyg

2. Videos on the Climate Crocks website no longer work, showing simply a blank space where the link usually would be. The video link embedded here does not link or redirect - https://climatecrocks.com/2018/09/18/jennifer-francis-how-climate-and-ice-melt-intensify-hurricanes/ - however, after finding the video link in the "View Page Info" drop down and going directly to the YouTube URL - https://www.youtube.com/embed/cZTiFA39T8I - the video plays normally!

Note that these are embedded links within email notifications!

Here's a screen print copy. Can somebody help?? ( AND attaching the image has taken 5 minutes thus far. I may have to try & submit it without. Failing that, I'd leave the page - un-submitted. And I don't see a mb size limit or a cancel in order to use a smaller copy - FYI)

Why did Firefox Quantum stop supporting the Weather Channel website's hourly forecast pulldowns, while Edge still supports them?

When I'm on the US Weather Channel's website (I use the URL of "https://weather.com/weather/today/l/USMA0518:1:US" ) for the "Hourly" forecast pulldown menus for where I live in New England. When I click on the "Next 8 Hours" text at the bottom of the basic list while browsing with the latest version of Firefox Quantum (v.62, in 64-bit version) to view the next eight hours' worth of hourly forecasts, NOTHING happens to reveal the hourly forecast updates; while on the version of Microsoft Edge (currently dated for May 21, 2018) clicking on the "Next 8 Hours" actually reveals "the next 8 hours" of weather forecasts, like Firefox Quantum USED to.

I use the latest "v.1803" version of Windows 10 X64 for my operating system, and so far, where I'm someone who DOES need to check the Weather Channel for such forecasts as a "matter of routine"...should I simply drop Firefox Quantum 64-bit for MS Edge, or can the strictly 64-bit Waterfox browser be a better choice (AND still allow me to use that "Next 8 Hours" pulldown, as Edge still does)?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice!
