Hello.

90.0.2 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 20.04.

I noticed a lot of activity from my desktop computer to various ip's at bc.googleusercontent.com whenever I start, visit sites, or shut down firefox. I know this because I'm watching the tcp stream with tcpdump | grep 'googleusercontent'

This ONLY happens in Firefox not chrome or other browsers. Seeing this is a fresh install with no addons, tweaks, etc. I'd like to know WHY a fresh install of Firefox phones home to some googleusercontent user. See below snippet of logs:

I'm using Windows Defender Firewall in Windows 10, and I have blocked all Inbound and Outbound connections, created a New Rule for Firefox (version 78.11.0_ESR), and allowed the program to access the internet from the installation path: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe". However, internet access is inaccessable? Does Firefox makes some DETOUR route without my knowelage or is it just me and my moderate IQ? All other applications have full respect to Windows Defender Firewall rules. Thank you.

I've googled on how to see page size, and according to Mozilla support, need to get to page info by clicking on CTRL + I and then you'll see, under "General" tab: "Page Size" in KB.

Problem starts when "Page Size" isn't shown at all (it doesn't exists.. not empty or anything). Why? and how can I see it?.

Attached screenshot of what I see.

Thank you.

Hi all,

I'm trying to automatically configure Firefox using the policies.json file, but I don't seem to be able to get it to work.

I've created /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/policies.json with this content: {

 "policies": {
   "Homepage": {
     "URL": "https://www.google.com/",
     "Locked": false,
     "StartPage": "homepage"
   }
 }

}

The file and directory permissions allow for read by everyone.

However, when I restart Firefox, I don't get google as my homepage.

What else can I check?

TIA,

Mike.

I know this is an old issue. I'm getting it now, FF 90.0.2 64-bit, Windows 10 Pro N, Build 19041.vb_release.191206-1406. System updated. Not very often it starts playing for a fraction of a second. Videos and GIFs everywhere else (as far as places I normally go) plays as it should. Troubleshoot mode didn't solve it; hardware acceleration tweak neither. No crash logs.

Tried on the Edge and everything is fine.

Question: does the suggested "fix" on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows embraces this issue as well? If so, sorry, but might be time to change browsers. The reason I'm using Windows 10 PRO ->N<- is exactly not to have to remove Windows Media Player and related "bloat" from my system. This isn't one of those crybaby threats I hate to read: it's a necessity.

I must ask: why on Edge, on the same machine, the same problem doesn't exist as in Firefox.

Suggestion for mentioned article: might be helpful point users (also) to the right place of The Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 10, on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231

Thanks

I am sat in front of a PC for most of my day. Firefox spends most of its time minimised while I use document and video applications. On average the Primary password login box will activate over everything I am doing frequently - by frequently I mean 2-3 times an hour or more. It is annoying and nonsensical. What am I doing wrong or is this simply a flaw in firefox? In my imagination at least it makes sense for it to ask me for a password when I want to use a password restricted domain.

I have the Simplify Page option set back up on my Print Preview screen and it appears to be working fine on the screen, but when I try to print the page it cuts a bunch off on the right and on the bottom of the page. It doesn't appear to be a marginal issue. I think it's something with the latest version 90.0.1 of Firefox that I recently downloaded.

Please don't do away with the Simplify Page option! I use it ALL THE TIME!

When I am on a google play store app page, the green download button doesn't work.

What happens: 1. Click the green button 2. The round google processing-icon appears on the page briefly 3. Nothing happens, page does not render a pop-up stating the app will be installed on my device

What I tried:

  • Turn off ublock: problem persits
  • Disable all add-ons: problem persits
  • A clean portable version: problem persits
  • Tried on a clean portable google chrome install: everything works (app get's installed)

Problem started 4 or 5 days ago...

I am running Firefox portable 64bit on windows 10. I can just install from the android playstore app, but I need it to work on my desktop like it has always worked.

I someone could help, I'd really appreciate this.

Thanks.

Hi All,

Running latest 9.0.1 for Mac OS.

Suddenly cannot print Apple Emoji. We can see them but they will not print out on any of our printers.

Every other program we've tested prints them just fine, so confident this is a Firefox issue.

I have refreshed Firefox but this did not help. Tried System Print & Firefox Print modes

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

I started Firefox yesterday and saw a message about not having been on for some time - which rang alarm bells for a daily user! Having time today to investigate, it seems that it's lost 6 months of history and bookmark changes (I'm only offered January or today!) Is there a way of recovering all that history (very helpful) and this Tuesday's bookmark set? Thanks Stephen

Firefox for Windows make major change in Toolbar in version 89 upgrade: New in version 89: Say hello to a fresh new Firefox, designed to get you where you want to go even faster. We’ve redesigned and modernized the core experience to be cleaner, more inviting, and easier to use. Beginning in 89, you’ll notice a number of changes, including: Simplified browser chrome and toolbar: Less frequently used items removed to focus on the most important navigation items. How do I avoid Firefox deleting lesser used links in my Toolbar? They are there for a reason.

I updated FF to version 90.0.2, & it now keeps asking me for my primary password. I've tried resetting it, & rebooting Windows 10 Pro X64, but nothing seems to help. I don't actually have to do anything, except hit Cancel, but it bothers me that FF is glitchy.

No software additions, system is stable, running Sophos anti-virus

Any ideas? Thanks!

Been using FF since 2005ish. (Me 1946) Latest version (90.0.2 (64-bit) annoys me greatly because I can't remove the unwanted 'Pocket' BS. I've followed several online 'advices' on this, including this site, & still it persists.

FF is getting like IE IMO, with all the awkwardness to remove unwanted Bloatware. For an 'Ordinary User'. Could some knowledgeable FF user please explain, in language I can understand, English, but not very Tech Savvy) how I remove Pocket from the browser Thanks.

Attempting to patch a corporate template (reason why the version is so old) and when using any later ESR installer with the -ms parameters the old version remains.

The installer returns a 0 exit code when done through our scripting. However it never actually installs.

Being ESR there are no logs.

When you manually install everything goes fine. The scripting handles elevating permissions, we use the same functionality across the enterprise so we know this should not be the issue.

However, and this is the odd part, if we "inject" a new installer in our scripting it will install if done without any other actions. However, for production support we have many other third party app updates.

I was leaning towards app conflicts (maybe handle locks on required libs etc) but after much testing, there are no conflicts.

I am at a loss. Any thoughts?
