My boss uses Firefox and said he is having a repeat issue with his browser. The issue is that every few weeks Firefox undoes a setting that he has and we cannot figure out why. It could be when you update to a new version.


What happens is that he has file extensions for PDF and ICS files set to automatically open and instead they change to download instead. He then has to download one of each file type and manually change the setting back to auto-open. Again every 3-4 weeks this resets to download.

edit: moved thread from Firefox for iOS (for iPhone/iPad) to Firefox section as you have macOS or Mac OS X 10.9.

I need to use the proctoru extension to take exams for my university, it used to work fine but now Firefox will not let me download the extension. Because of this I have to use Chrome which is a problem on its own. How can I force firefox to let me download this extension.

From time to time i need to log into my ISP's website portal, yet from today which is since the update yesterday) it will not allow me to it has my log in details saved correctly, but when i try to log in the sit it says they are incorrect, which they are not.

At first I thought the issue was with my ISP's website, so I was on the phone to them and together we tried crhome and edge and the log ins worked just fine, but not with the Firefox browser.

So sadly either something you changed in that update seems to be messing with the log in on this site and possibly others or possibly one of the add ons I use with it together with the browser is now causing an issue and is interferring I wouldn't have the first clue.

I’m trying to get to www.indeed.com using Firefox. When I get to the website it says, “checking if the site connection is secure, www.indeed.com needs to review the security of your connection before proceeding.” I used inspect to help find the cause of the issue. It says “some cookies are misusing the recommended samesite attribute” the cookie “cf_chl_2” came up 5 times saying “ cf_chl_2” does not have a proper “samesite” attribute value. Soon, cookies without the “samesite” attribute or with an invalid value will be treated as “lax” this means that the cookie will no longer be sent in third-party contexts. If your application depends on this cookie being available in such contexts, please add the “samesite=none” attribute to it. To know more about the “samesite” attribute, read https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Set-Cookie/SameSite

Another cookie is “cf_chl_rc_m”

I don’t want to make these cookies secure if they could potentially cause my computer harm or steal my info. I tried uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it but it still kept all of my favorites so I’m assuming it didn’t reset and fix Firefox like I had hoped. I don’t have a firefox account on my computer so I’m not sure how favorites came back. Do you know why?

I am using a MacBook Pro M2 chip 2022 and the latest version of firefox. I have also updated my computer. I have run Norton and found no threats on my computer. And firefox wasn’t giving me this issue before.

What do you think I should do?

Thank you in advance for helping.

I've been having trouble with the Primary Password on Firefox for years. Sometimes it didn't ask me for it at all, sometimes randomly after half an hour and now since a year I've been having to type it in three times in total, before Firefox let's me do my thing. What's really weird: The second time the pop-up comes up there are already some characters in the password field and I have to delete them to start typing my Primary Password anew. But lately it always takes three times of typing in the password, until the pop up doesn't come up again. That's stealing a lot of my time and I have no idea what's the reason or what's causing it.

Can anybody help out?

Due to organizational requirements, I need to have Firefox ask for my primary password every time I want to log in to a site using a stored password, as opposed to having it ask once in a while. Changing the value of signon.masterPasswordReprompt.timeout_ms to a small value does not appear to have the desired effect.

Any ideas on why this is happening or how to fix?

New dual boot Linux configuration and all new install. Ubuntu 22.04 (all updates). Firefox 105.0.1. I am trying to create a new profile on a shared (ext4) partition that can be accessed from either boot side. I have tried over a dozen different configurations. I can create profiles anywhere on my local disk (also ext4). I cannot create a profile on the shared partition. Error msg: "Profile couldn’t be created. Probably the chosen folder isn’t writable." I have checked/verified permissions/directories/access/etc, checked for typos, tried using links or direct access. I tried copying a profile I created on the local disk onto the shared partition and just point to that. Notably when I choose the directory from the partition in the FF profile tool, FF switches the path to the /run/user/(...) tmpfs instead of using the actual directory as chosen. I verified access via this path as well. I even tried modifying the profiles.ini file to the "normal" location. Sorry for the long explanation. I have been configuring new Linux installs since the 90's. I'm stuck. Help??

I have used Firefox for years as my main browser and have my gmail on both iPad and iPhone come up without having to sign in each time. Now on my iPad, Google gives me a message that my browser may be insecure and I have to sign in each time which is highly inconvenient and irritating. Each time, Google asks to switch my browser to Chrome. Can you tell me what is going on? Thanks -

About 3 months (or so!) ago, Firefox stopped saving the setting:

Logins and Passwords

   Ask to save logins and passwords

I set it for it to always ask, if I don't, any saved passwords won't load when signing into a site. Now, each day, or anytime I close Firefox, I have to click on Settings and click inside the box. Once I do that, the passwords will load for me.

I have untinstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

Any suggestions or do you know if anyone else has experienced this issue?
