My community association uses Constant Contact for its documents, notices, etc. When I get an email message from them, it often contains several links beginning with https://r20.rs6.net. When I try to access one of those links, Firefox tells me "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at r20.rs6.net." Chrome and Edge do not give the same error - they can access the requested page. Is there some setting in Firefox that I need to change to fix this problem? Firefox has been my default browser for years, but I also like to read notices from my community association.

Opening new tab via right-click on other tabs doesn't put cursor focus in URL bar

If you have multiple tabs open and you hit Ctrl-T to open a new one, it opens it at the end of the tabs, and the cursor focus moves to the URL bar so you can start typing in an address/search.

If you right-click on any of those tabs, it opens a new tab to the right of that tab, instead of at the end (which is what I want, as right-clicking on a specific one to open a new tab, to me, means you are linking those tabs in layout and want them together) BUT the cursor focus DOES NOT move to the URL bar.

This seems pretty counter-intuitive, and means that so many times I right-click, Open New Tab, and start typing a URL and then see that I have to stop typing, click in the URL bar, and start typing all over again.

Is there an about:config to force the focus to the URL bar, or is this a bug? If there's no setting for this, I would definitely consider this a bug because you have 2 different behaviors for New Tabs.

On my old iMac, Firefox remembered sites I had visited and filled them in, like if I typed A it would autofill Amazon. This is not happening on my new 2023 iMac and I can't figure out how to turn this on. Also, I could see my site visit history on my old iMac, but this field is blank, with no history of sites visited shown, on my new machine. Help is appreciated. Please keep in mind that I am technically retarded and need step by step guidence. Thank you in advance for your help

I've been searching for a solution on HOW to edit HTML files (for websites) on my new laptop. I used to use IE11 (Internet Explorer 11), on Windows XP / 7 (32 bit), which worked spot on, the steps were as follows: (I write websites from scratch most of the time) 1) Click on, say, index.html 2) IE11 shows the actual page 3)Click on View/ Source 4)The source code shows up in Notepad 5) Edlt the code, Save and click Reload the webpage. You can straightaway see the changes.

Currently my new laptop runs Win 11 pro, Microsoft does NOT support IE11 anymore, I can however run IE11 as a add-on, BUT it does not work very well . I also tried a couple of free dedicated editing programs also, BUT they are exceedingly clumsy to use and can't equate to the old IE11 at any level. Somewhere I read that Firefox ( i have v115) can emulate what IE11 could do, hence I am on this forum posing the question, as i can't find the solution,

Anyone in the same boat?

Please share your ideas, Many thanks

I'm using Windows 7 and have been migrated to the esr updates for Firefox. I think this problem started cropping up just before going to the esr versions, but not sure. Firefox will a) randomly hang and do nothing for 5-10 minutes and then pick up fine b) tends to hang a lot when signing into websites like banks, etc, doing the same thing as (a). I've updated FF several times since then, but same problem. I did try to do 1 fix which suggested creating a new "places" database, but that did not solve the problem. Not sure where to go from here as nothing has changed on my computer since the problem started - no new software, etc.

A website I have to use for my work (for the Queensland Department of Education) requires that I input a 6-digit code; for *security*, they insist it be input by clicking on a keypad that scrambles the position of the number keys each time... It's meant to look like the first image attached below, but when I try to open it in Firefox, it looks like the second image and I can't input my code. I'd like to be able to use Firefox for EVERYTHING but I end up having to use Chrome to access this site, which I use pretty much every day for work, and it's very inconvenient.

Apps Firefox and Thunderbird are having problems opening links to webpages. In particular, Cloudflare cannot verify (it just cycles between a checkbox "Are you human?" and a browser check) when I use FF.

I use Win11 with NordVPN, but this wasn't a problem before the latest Win11 update. (It also seems to have affected TB reconnecting to Ymail.) I'm now using Chromium to read my Ymail avoid Cloudflare verification, but I'd rather keep using FF and TB apps.

I've been going though Cloudflare, NordVPN and Mozilla online help for a few days now, and I think I've tried everything there.

Thoughts?

Firefox on windows 11 crashes between 0 and 15 times in a row as soon as I hit the keyboard. Same happens with chrome so that is not a firefox bug. Disabling all extensions does not help nor does a refresh. After a certain number of crashes, it starts working. Once it starts working, I can use the keyboard until next time I start it. No issue if I cut/paste text in fields, or if I use keyboard via vnc viewer. Only browser apps have this issue. I have also tried diabling all non windows services, and thought it was solved until it didn't. I would love a hint on what to look for.

I have the latest release (auto update)

Some sites I visit give me that message, it shows up when I'm typing a reply to something which pushes the page lower and fouls up my ability to keep typing, then if goes away, comes back, goes away ...

I like when I open a bookmark, that I am not forced to view it right away. This can be VERY annoying when opening multiple bookmarks but I want to stay on my current one without having to switch back to the one I was using. I would like an option added at least to have bookmarks in that automatically switch to when opening. Please.

After removing elements from a website with another add-on, I'm left with a considerable white gap at the top.

I can manually change (pointless) the margin-top property to -100px, but how do I do this with the Stylus add-on?

Stylus doesn't like negative values:

margin-top -100px

10:20 Expected "{" but found "-100px".

Is there a lighter/simpler alternative to Stylus?

Firefox 115: menu and tabs background color changed

After Firefox upgraded from 114.02 to 115 menu and tabs background color changed:

FF 114: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2023-07-05-17-00-30-1a3adf.png FF 115: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2023-07-05-17-00-34-cba7e0.png

These are screenshots of active window. When window of v115 becomes inactive, background color changes to lighter, but still no visible horizontal line between menu and tabs. I don't use any additional themes, "System theme — auto" is selected.

From release notes for FF 115: For users with a Firefox Colorways built-in theme, the theme will be automatically migrated to the same theme hosted on addons.mozilla.org for Firefox profiles that have disabled add-ons auto-updates. This will allow users to keep their Colorways theme when they are later removed from Firefox installer files. I guess it is relevant somehow, but i never installed Colorways and don't know what is it.

How to make FF 115 look like it was in 114? I can see changes in `browser/themes/` in sources between 114.02 and 115. Is it possible to "extract" default theme from 114 and install/apply it to 115?

I use Firefox under Fluxbox window manager in Arch Linux, if it matters.

For about a week or so, I am unable to log in to xfinity website, and only the xfinity website using Firefox. I can log in fine using Microsoft Edge. I have tried clearing the cache and turning off Microsoft Defender firewall. I don't use any third party security software - just Microsoft Defender. I also don't use a VPN. I didn't add any new software in the last month, only usual updates from Microsoft and Firefox.

What can I do to fix this?

I noticed that someone else had this question, but instead of answering it, it just got archived.

When browsing Youtube, the browser Back Button doesn't work. For example, if I start on the Youtube main page, then click on a video, it will show the video. But then, when I click the browser's "Back" navigation buttion, it does not take me back to the main page. The URL in the address bar will be the main page, but it will continue to display the video I just watched instead.

This only seems to happen on Youtube. It's been a problem for a while - possibly as much as 2 years or even more. And it doesn't happen every single time. However, it has been happening a lot more frequently lately.

It's almost as if Firefox just doesn't want to refresh.

I've tried clearing the cache. The problem persists. I've dried disabling all add-ons. It still happens. I've tried running it in troubleshooting mode. Still a problem.

I've tried to duplicate this in Microsoft Edge; it doesn't seem to happen there.
