This again!

This was resolved about a year ago; now the problem is back, as of updating to Firefox 113.0.1 this evening.

Initially post-update the close tab button was in a weird, random place on the tab bar. I have adjusted the margins to put the button back where it's supposed to be!

I changed :

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button {
  opacity: 0;
  margin-left: -4.5px !important;
  margin-right: 2px !important;
}

to:

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button {
  opacity: 0;
  margin-left: -4.5px !important;
  margin-right: 35px !important;
}

to move the button back onto the left. That may seem like a drastic change but that's the lowest value I could find which produced the result I want.

However, it's not quite the result I want! As of updating to 113.0.1, the tab title itself now disappears altogether on hover.

I have tried to correct this in CSS using the .tab-text and .tab-label attributes, but without any luck so far.

Can anybody help me with this, before I'm forced to downgrade to Firefox 112?

Better yet... how about we just make this an option in Settings, as it should be?!

I've started getting this error message on certain websites (always the same ones):

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.manek.org.uk.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

The same websites still work fine on Firefox mobile, so it's nothing inherent in the sites themselves.

I have only noticed this in the last few days. I had just updated Firefox to version 109 – but it's not specific to one version of Firefox either, as I tried on one of my Macs which hadn't updated yet and is still on version 107, and the issue was replicated exactly the same.

I have tried clearing the cache, restarting Firefox, etc.

Can anyone help me resolve this? Some of these are websites I use quite a lot for my work, and it's frustrating to have to do anything just on my phone.

Comcast (Xfinity) requested that I change my webmail password. I have https://login.xfinity.com on the list of exceptions for cookies and site data to ALLOW. Regardless, Firefox doesn't allow me to do a password reset.

I used Safari to change the password. It worked.

Since I use most of the time Firefox, I wanted to go back and login into Comcast webmail using Firefox with the new password. It doesn't let me and just tells me to reset my password.

This used to work in the past. Something had to be changed since I last changed passwords for webmail in later versions of Firefox.

Please let me know know what to do to enable me to continue to use Firefox for webmail. I have version 115.5. Thanks.

For the last several days (as of 12/20/2023) I have had issues with playback on sites including Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Dropout.tv (not YouTube). Error messages indicate that my browser is unsupported and I need the newest version of Firefox, but my browser is completely up-to-date. Pausing my adblocker on these sites does nothing to correct the issue, nor does restarting the browser or my computer.

Hi:

I tried to set cookie preferences for different websites. For reasons that I do not understand, I cannot move the "slider". I even turned of the existing protection for the websites, but nothing changed. I tried the same with Safari using the same computer and mouse, and I had no problems.

Is this a known bug?

I attached a screen capture. Thanks.

Hi,

does anyone know what to do to make the background of the bookmarks icon and the reload icon the same as the icon with the site connection lock? I've exhausted all options in the userChrome.css and cant get the background to change. It's in hover state.

For reference I've added a couple of images, the first how the background is and the second how I would like it to look. I'm on macOS and latest Firefox 111.

Best regards,

I've used Firefox for years on my iMac with its 5K display. The UI was fine. Today I had to delete and then re-install Firefox because the program had started crashing repeatedly. I lost a lot of bookmarks & tabs. Upon opening the new install, I saw that Firefox now shows a miniaturized UI that is very difficult to read. I refer to the UI elements (tabs, bookmarks bar, URL/search field), not the web pages themselves. As part of the installation, I went through all the settings, and I didn't see any controls for the sizes of UI elements. So I searched the internet and found many reports of similar problems over many years. I tried a few suggested changes to about:config settings. Nothing has worked. I am exasperated. What am I missing? Can anyone help?

Animation triggers my migraines.

Man websites use transition and animation timing functions such as "ease in-out" to animate the interface. I try to block this. Among other tools I use userContent,css, including the following:

  • {animation-timing-function: step-start !important}
  • {transition-timing-function: step-start !important}

This works to de-animate regular css elements, but not ::before and ::after pseudo-elements.

The current css standards do not apply user css to pseudo-elements. I've written to the WCAG about the issue.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1865572

https://github.com/w3c/wcag3/issues/40

But I really really need some way to de-animate these, because they trigger my migraines. Aside from css fixes, I often reduce the frame rate in about:config, but can't always do that, disable smooth scrolling, disable animated gifs and animated pngs, disable autoplay, block various non-scrolling elements using either css or uBlock Origin, etc.

about.ef2a7dd5-93bc-417f-a698-142c3116864f.mozilla This ‘cookie’ (no size shown) has been showing up on my Firefox ‘manage website data’ since at least March ’23 and it will NOT delete. It may not be 'a real cookie' but I still can’t get rid of it.

When I searched online for that apparent address I found: https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/applications/tor-browser/-/issues/40175 The info near the top of that site’s page: Torbutton INFO: tor SOCKS: http://expyuzz4wqqyqhjn.onion/static/images/home/png/block-trackers@3x.png?h=70991bcb via --unknown--:cc55771ba6d6e8c6542066863a47e223 SOCKS is a username? And the ‘onion/hidden service’ address cannot be accessed unless using the Tor browser? So that seems a dead end for me.

I have seen 3 other people posting here in the past year about this particular cookie. hobro1 did an uninstall & still had to remove directories manually after getting some answers from several others. blazee decided – based on the answer given by jscher 2000 – that it probably wasn’t dangerous. mekishev 1 received an answer from cor-el that is incomprehensible to me, except for saying ‘it isn’t a real cookie’. I understand it may not 'a real cookie' but then why is it showing up in 'manage website data' where everything else is a cookie?

Can anyone help, please? I’m about to migrate over to a new computer and really don’t want to take this with me. I don’t like the fact that it persists, and that the cookies ‘keeper’ – SOCKS maybe? – is completely hidden.

Thanks much in advance for any assistance!

PS The only possible explanation I've come up with for how it got this cookie is when I was checking out some Firefox extensions; I didn’t even know what Tor was till trying to figure this out.

I use layout.frame_rate 1 to block animation, and to replace painful partial scrolling with clean jumps. I can't use an intermediate frame rate, such as 3-30 fps, due to the seizure risks, or a high frame rate, such as 60 fps, due to migraines when hit by "smooth" animation, "ease in-out" animation, zooming animation, parallax animation, partial scrolling with one part of the window sliding alongside another, etc.

about:config involves some other frame-rate and frame_rate settings;

gfx.display.frame-rate-divisor starts at 1

layers.offmainthreadcomposition.frame-rate starts at -1

layout.expose_high_rate_mode_from_refreshdriver starts at true

layout.frame_rate starts at 0, which defaults to monitor settings; I've reset it to 1 (1 frame per second).

layout.throttled_frame_rate starts at 1

What are these and what do they do? I've tried looking them up, and see a bunch of posts about browser diagnostics, or *increasing* frame rates, or the like.

Hi, I accidentally allowed notifications (while using Firefox) from a particular web site only to find out that now I get numerous notifications regarding phony virus alerts, etc. I am unable to block the notifications.

I searched the web for how to block a notification from a web site, but have not come up with any solutions.

In particular, I went to about:preferences > Privacy & Security > Permissions > Notifications. The web site is set to Block, but still the unwanted notifications continue. Perhaps the notifications are coming from a different web site that seems to be hidden?

I also quit Firefox and restarted Firefox, but the notifications continue. I also restarted my Macbook Pro, but that didn’t help either.

Here is the link I originally clicked on, but I obviously wouldn’t want anyone to click on it:

Hi everyone

I can no longer drag a bookmark to a folder and insert it where I need to in the folder, which previously was very useful.

Now when I drag a bookmark and try to insert it where I need to it defaults to inserting it as the first / top bookmark in the folder. Which means I have to drag it a second time to its desired position.

Please could anyone advise about how to get the functionality back.

Thanks in advance !
