I'm a Firefox Developer Edition user. After upgrading my Firefox to 69.0b1, I see a problem about network and extension:

In the same network, the case when the browser stuck at loading the page content has been more frequent (especially on script-rich sites like Twitter). At that case, the extension menu is irresponsive (which means that when I click on it, it only shows a pop-up with nothing in it). Closing all loading tabs doesn't solve this. After a long time after the loading starts, the tabs suddenly continue to load and the extension pages come back responsive.

I work with HTML website themes daily. I use the firefox browser for all of my design work and I have recently noticed that firefox does not show web icons such as font awesome or any other web icons. The web icons are properly coded into the theme and they show up fine in all other browsers (chrome, edge, explorer, safari).

I did some research on it and I did find this: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CORS but I don't know if that has anything at all to do with it or not.

If the problem is due to Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) then how would I fix that issue as the fonts are being served directly from the theme files?

Thank you

I have attempted to ask about this TWICE already and can't find my questions.

I am using Firefox as portable app, with --no-remote --profile "%profile_path%". I update it regularly, it's convenient for me to see notifications of new updates and install them whenever I see fit. I recently noticed that Firefox creates a folder on every computer C:\ProgramData\Mozilla\updates, which is not good for the portable version, really. The only way to stop this I found was to completely disable updates via distribution\policies. I don't want to. How do I get firefox to notify me of updates and download them to a USB flash drive (it will be perfect if i could specify folder for this purpose) instead of leaving files on other people's computers?

Website logon credentials are being reset after the use of the reload function - requiring the user to log back in to the comments section after each reload of the web page. In particular, credentials for DISCUS, which is very popular "comment" software used by many websites, is unable to maintain the users credentials after a reload...requiring the user to log back in each time. More info on this software is at https://disqus.com. NOTE: Addons have not changed since I was on 68.0.1 where this problem was not observed.

I have a normally used Windows 10 PC that I consider my standard configuration for Firefox. I WILL CALL IT PC A. I have another, rarely used PC which I WILL CALL B. The Firefox configuration on PC B is often not as up to date as PC A and may have old and outdated Add-ons, bookmarks, and tool bar configurations. When I bring up PC B and start Firefox, it will quickly start the syncing process (since I can no longer log off of Firefox - a very bad idea, by the way). Whether the sync starts immediately or not, how do I specify that PC B will always sync to PC A's profile and not try to update PC A with its old and invalid configuration?

For example if I go to https://jsfiddle.net/01tpr8sd/, a dialogue will pop up asking me which application I'd like to use to handle this link, while it should have triggered the internal U2F implementation. I have tried starting Firefox in safe mode and resetting values that look relevant in about:config but neither of them helped.

It doesn't happen if I create a fresh new profile though, but I really want to avoid the hassle of backing up all the extension configurations... Please help, thanks a lot.

I set up two Windows accounts on my Windows 10 and synced the passwords and settings in only one account. To my surprise, when I login in the second account, every login and password was there without the master password. This means that any one using that account can see my password.

I think this is a really serious security hole and Firefox should fix it as soon as possible.

running firefox dev ed rev 69.0b14

i run prestashop ecommerce on a hosting server. but when i use admin on my PC, i have an application that displays 2 sets of date/time, ie start and end.

however the 1st displayed time shows it correctly ie 26/08/2019 00:00 but the 2nd displayed time it is shown as 1566860340

the coding that generates this seems to be correct, check attached image.

any ideas please, as when I use any other browser it displays date and time correctly.

Based on my personal usage since the update to 69.0, this issue currently seems to only apply to Gmail.

This function seems to work fine on other web pages/sources.

The search engine names have disappeared once again!

I'd been running userChrome scripts to fix this "bug" (thanks to the help of people in this forum https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1192499#answer-1045326 ). But the names have disappeared again in version 69.

I do like Firefox, but sometimes I wonder what the interface designers are smoking. Who could possibly think that an unlabeled list of search engine icons is a useful way to search the internet!? For that matter, who on earth decided that users want to type their search terms FIRST and THEN decide what type of search they want to perform? Most of the time, people search the exact opposite way to this.

How to turn off *distracting* display of trackers blocked in bottom right of web pages for Firefox 69?

I appreciate that Firefox is now blocking third party trackers. But I can't stand having a distracting purple display of trackers blocked in every web page. That is unacceptable to me and I want a way to turn off that distracting display on *every* web page.

I find it ironic that distracting ads are being removed (good!) but Firefox developers thought it was a smart idea to *add* its own distracting information on web pages (sheesh -- at least could we have the option to put that tracker summary in the menu bar? -- I would ideally prefer being able to abolish it from even being seen there).

I am a software developer who doesn't care for web page pollution or distraction from the real content, and a tracker blocking summary in my face on every page is definitely pollution.

I'm going back to Chrome because of this one issue (the ad blocker I use only puts its summary count in the menu bar).

Firefox really goofed by adding its own "ad" on *every* web page for its new feature. Now I need a blocker for those ads!
