Skysports.com always asks me to select cookie options. Allow or View options and reject. I always choose the second one. The problem is. I can never choose the options. Opera browser, a better browser than this one, shows the options and allows me to choose. Sky just shows the same box every single page and I have to go through the same sequence every time.

Release 104 Cross-site Redirect Issue

It appears with the latest update, 104.0, my customers are no longer able to log into their accounts with my web site. The console is showing the following warning:

Cookie "JSESSIONID" with the "SameSite" attribute value "Lax" or "Strict" was ommited because of a cross-site redirect.

So the JSESSION ID cookie is being omitted, which is preventing the login process from working correctly.

Going into settings => Privacy and Security and unchecking cookies from the Custom setup still doesn't fix the issue.

The behavior seems to be inconsistent as the same version of Firefox works fine for me on one machine, but generates this warning another, even with the same settings.

Can you explain in more detail why this is happening and steps to fix it?

Thank you, M. Warble

Same problem again with upgrade. After the last upgrade today 9-5-2022 I no longer have video play back on sites such as MSNBC, CNN or Twitter. U-Tube seems to be working fine. I have checked and have version 5.0.1 of ffmpg installed if that helps. And I have turned off ad blockers. Firefox 104.0.1 in Fedora 36 workstation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Bob.

This is pretty much a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334684 : I have the uBlock Origin and Skip Redirect extensions installed, both work by checking/modifying the URL of the site I am trying to visit.

Unfortunately, I am running into some sites that are re-directed via some tracking URLs. Here's one example I had today:

Original URL: https://sslh62px.r.us-east-2.awstrack.me/L0/https:%2F%2Fwww.allaboutcircuits.com%2Ftechnical-articles%2Fanalyzing-dc-and-steady-state-ac-circuits-with-python%2F/2/010f01832042551a-ed0a0774-ca39-4cd9-825e-a375504c6ea5-000000/c7T-m43jFRD5B3k49nHcvIOhCtM=71

As you can see, the destination URL is embedded within the tracker URL and as such, is exactly what Skip Redirect was designed to deal with. Unfortunately, uBlock Origin seems to look at the URL before Skip Redirect does and blocks it outright because it is a known tracker (awstrack.me).

If I could tell Firefox to let Skip Redirect modify the URL first (to https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/technical-articles/analyzing-dc-and-steady-state-ac-circuits-with-python/ ), uBlock Origin didn't need to block access to it.

Is there a way to change the order in which extensions are applied (i.e. get to run) when a URL is opened?

I have been using sync from day one: best thing ever regarding my productivity. AFAIK, credentials get encrypted before sent to the FF cloud, using information derived from my password.

Short version: what happens when I change the Firefox account password?

Long version: I'm thinking of replacing my current password, with a very long one. If I do so, will there a re-upload of my data take place? Will my credentials on the cloud become harder to crack (assume that the new password is longer and more complex).

Hello All, I recently had to start up my brand new MacBook Pro up in "Safe Mode" to verify an unrelated problem. When I restarted my computer from safe mode, my Bookmarks were either gone completely or "empty" and I was apparently in a newer version of Firefox. I then trashed my Firefox application and tried to restore an older version via Time Machine and after I copy it to my Applications folder I get the message that I am trying to open an older version of firefox and then doesn't allow me to do that. When I followed the option to their extents, only the new version with NO bookmarks shows up.

How can I get my old bookmarks back?

Thanks bc

Yes. "Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode" is checked. Yes. In about:config "browser.urlbar.autoFill" is set to false. It STILL does it! This is maddening. I'm trying to go to an address on my network for my IP cameras. http://192.168.50.65 (for example), and Firefox keeps changing it https! Then of course, it won't connect. How do I stop this? I hate having to start Chrome or Opera to manage these local addresses.

I learned the hard way about a month ago that my main bank will not work with firefox. I've now received notices from two other banks that state they only support safari on Mac. I have run into issues with some others that will either give errors but still allow me to pass through or others that state I have an unsupported browser but still allow me to log into the site - for now.

With this wide a net, this seems to be specific to the security issues in the Mac browser. Is this already being looked into? Is this specific to the new OS and firefox integration?

While I basically trust Safari, I certainly don't want to use it unless I have to and I generally use firefox exclusively on all my Macs and PCs. Can someone shine a light on this? Is there an upgrade or update planned?

Thanks

My Firefox has intermittently (but many times a day) been been slow loading, often simply refusing to load at all. Clicking a link to open in a new tab often opens the tab but the tab says "New Tab" with an oscillating dot on the left. After a few minutes the dot stops and nothing displays. Often clicking something in Google News the new tab says "Opening " and then the Google URL. The page sometimes displays after a couple of minutes but sometimes never does.

I've disabled all my plugins except LastPass, but that doesn't help. My IT Support company hasn't been able to help. I tweeted Firefox and they suggested I DM them. I've done that, even sending a couple of illustrative screen videos. But no oikne has ever responded to my Twitter DM.

Is there any way to talk to a live person and share my screen to get some help?

If not, I'll need to abandon Firefox as my default browser after many, many years. It's become a real productivity-killer.

Firefox is selected as the default web browser in the OS preferred applications setting. If I launch Firefox and check its preference settings, it also displays that it is the default browser.

I'm also running Thunderbird v78. If I get an email with a link, and click the link, if Firefox is already running, the link opens normally in Firefox. If Firefox has not already been launched, clicking the link in Thunderbird will cause Firefox to be launched and open the link in it.

However, in that case, Firefox then displays a message that it is not the default browser, and asks to make it so. In an adjacent window, I can see the OS preferred applications displaying Firefox as the default.

If I click the button in Firefox to "make it the default" (even though it already is), Firefox is happy and remains happy as long as it is open. However, if I ignore it, the next time I click a link in Thunderbird, Thunderbird does weird stuff with the link instead of opening it in Firefox (behavior similar to not having a default browser set, or having a browser setting conflict). Even then, the OS default browser setting still displays as Firefox.

The behavior suggests that there's another place storing the default browser setting that is losing the setting if Firefox is spawned by an application (perhaps Firefox is spawned in a shell that isolates it from the system settings?).

Restarting Firefox with all extensions disabled doesn't affect this behavior.

How do I get Firefox to recognize that it is the default browser when it is launched by an application? Or if Firefox is correctly determining that it is not, how do I get the system to retain the default browser setting when Firefox is spawned by an application?


I'm running FF v104.0 on Linux.

Hi,

Since recent updates to Firefox I get a purple pop-up listing Trackers at the bottom right of my screen every time I open a new webpage. I'm happy with my PC security settings and have good protection software running - but this pop-up listing Trackers is becoming a nuisance.

Is there a way to stop Firefox displaying the Tracker notification pop-ups whilst still intercepting and blocking them in accordance with my security settings?

I see that other users have asked the same question, but it does not seem to have been answered yet.

Thanks,

Peter

Howdy, I just need to sync Firefox on my iMac and on my MacBook Pro. But this is surprisingly difficult to do. [[this page|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-set-sync-my-computer]] says to "click the 'Sign In' button next to 'Sync and save data'". It shows a handy little screenshot of a Sign In button, but I cannot see said button or the Sync and save data button even though I'm signed in to Firefox. This page gives me a handy QR code to sync Firefox on my mobile device, but I want to sync Firefox on my laptop. This page [[about:preferences#searchResults]] ] says "Sorry! There are no results in Settings for 'sync'". (Why ever not?)

It seems it should be very easy to sync Firefox between two computers; indeed it should be blindingly obvious, but it's not. What am I missing here? Thanks in advance for your help.
