Hello, I have a series of laptops that I need to block access to all URLs and only allow access to one. These laptops are not joined to an AD domain so I downloaded the ADMX templates and copied them to c:\windows\policydefinitions. I ran gpedit.msc and added <all_urls> to the Blocked Websites policy and then added the specific URL to the Exceptions to Blocked Websites policy. However I am unable to access the allowed URL as Firefox is blocking it, despite having the URL defined in the exceptions policy.

I have added various other URLs to the exceptions policy like https://www.msn.com, https://www.yahoo.com, and https://www.mozilla.org, and all are blocked. I have tried different match patterns in the blocked policy and none blocked any URL, which I didn't expect them to anyway. I tried these patterns:

*://*.*.*
https://*.*.*
http://*.*.*
*

Also in my testing I added https://www.yahoo.com to the block policy, did not enable the exceptions policy and found Firefox did not block that site, which makes zero sense. Am I missing something? I was able to do something similar to this in Chrome with its ADMX templates copied locally to a non-domain joined PC, and it worked flawlessly.

version 94.0.2 (64-bit) message: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I can not see any of my bookmarks and I can not bookmark any page. I have: Shut down Firefox and restarted: no help uninstalled, deleted folders, and reinstalled: no help Import bookmarks from another browser: no help. That doesn't work either

What "security software" is the message talking about?

Hope you can help, because I don't want to go to another browser.

I was recently watching a Twitch livestream when I stepped away from my PC for a moment and upon returning found it sitting at the login screen. Checking eventvwr it showed a BSOD event had occurred. The only thing actively running on my PC was FireFox with a single tab for Twitch.

Level: Critical Source: Kernal-Power Event ID: 41 BugCheckCode: 307 decimal, 0x133 hex

Windows documentation lists hex 0x133 as a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION error, and since Parameter 1 was a '0', it states, "A single DPC or ISR exceeded its time allotment. The offending component can usually be identified with a stack trace." https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/debugger/bug-check-0x133-dpc-watchdog-violation

From Windows Debugging Tools I loaded up the DMP file and ran !analyze to see the process name listed as FF (there's more information listed, just not sure it's really useful).

I checked FF `about:crashes` and it doesn't show any crash report there (presumably because the system BSOD and it did not have a chance to do anything).

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this issue and how/if they resolved it. In searching around it seemed like some folks suggested disabling hardware acceleration as there may be incompatibility issues with FF and GPU drivers. I checked under FF settings and it has "Use recommended performance settings" enabled, but there are no sub-options specific for hardware acceleration.

Some basic system specs: MoBo: Gigabyte B550 Vision D-P (BIOS F13e, latest available) CPU: AMX Ryzen 7 5800X GPU: Gigabyte GeForce 3060Ti (driver 30.0.14.7141, latest one available)

Running on FF 94.0.2 (64-bit), the latest update.

Trying to log into my investing website (Vanguard)

So.............I log into the website periodically and several weeks or more ago they 'updated' their site with a new look. So when I go to it, it has 'auto-filled' my username and password (just like it used to do) and after the site does the 'handshake' with the window I press the 'Log In' button and nothing happens. Nothing at all, it just sits there. I can launch my (outdated) Internet Explorer browser and do the same thing and it works fine and I go right in to the site. I've tried deleting cookies for the site on the Firefox browser but it doesn't change anything.

So..........ideas? Maybe a plug-in problem???

Thanks, Kent

Hi All, I am using firefox on my work laptop and it was working fine, until today that it was updated to the new version: 94.0.2 (64-bit)

I noticed that the new version was very fast, so I decided to switch from Chrome to Firefox. I imported all my logins and bookmarks, but when I go to a website, in the part where I should enter my login information, the drop-down menu does not show up, even though I have several saves usernames and passwords! I tried entering my logins manually into the password manager, but they still do not show up. The previous saved logins show up and work fine. But the new ones don't. Can you help me solve this issue? the image shows what I mean. The older login that was saved before the new update shows, but none of the other 4 logins that I imported or manually entered into the password manager show up.

These have all been deleted and i will need to spend hours to go and look them all up again . are these saved in any config files that i can re-add them ? Why are these being deleted and if this is not going to be saved going forward why do you still make this functionality available ? second, larger screenshot.

Please advise, this is the main reason I use firefox .... all previous updates these URL's remained until now, but if going fwd you dont support , i would suggest you remove the functionality. and I will remove firefox.

hello,

I want to use Firefox fullscreen on macOS, but when I press Esc button on keyboard accidentally Firefox escapes from fullscreen. And, I do press Esc by mistake a lot, because of a hand habit! Is there a way to aviod this? This is a very bad shortcut for closing the fullscreen! Other browsers has combinations to avoid such accidents!

If there's not way to change this I believe Firefox developers should make it a combination! This looks like a very simple design mistake!

For my work, I need to paste a lot of links into text (on a website which is probably somewhat poorly programmed), and when I select some text and hit ctrl+k to create a hyperlink, Firefox doesn't recognize that it's a text box and "takes over" the ctrl+k function, focusing on the search/address bar instead of allowing me to insert the link. (The reason I blame the website is that other websites, like Jira, work fine for this)

Is there a way to disable the ctrl+k functionality in firefox? I've seen a couple old threads on disabling various shortcut keys but I don't know what the "Focus Search bar" key would be called in either the Browser Console or configs.


Thank you!!

A subfolder in one of my bookmark folders has disappeared from view on my Windows 10 device. It was there as recently as this past week (I use it frequently). It still shows (and contains bookmarks) when I look on my Android device under Desktop Bookmarks. Oddly enough, I decided to bookmark again one of the pages in the missing folder and the star next to the address indicated it's been bookmarked and the subfolder still shows up in the list when I attempted to bookmark it again. It also shows in the Bookmarks list when I go to Manage Bookmarks (as a subfolder where it has always been). Why is it not showing up when I try to access it from my bookmarks list when I click on the Show Your Bookmarks icon? It won't let me screen shot the dropdown menus.
