I have seen similar requests but they all seem to go down some dirt road and leave the topic.

First the issue I am having is with Firefox v72 on the Windows 10 computer provided by work. This company has thousands of employees and the IT department is not responsive.

My issue: Every time I launch Firefox a pop-up window appears telling me that Firefox can't update to the latest version. This message reappears periodically throughout the day. I would like to prevent this or at least have it occur 1 time a week or month. I have tried adjusting the advanced settings but nothing seems to fix this issue and frankly I do not even see a change in the duration of the message.

Now before the folks concerned about security "recommend" that I should update to the latest version because it is the safest and best version, please understand that I do know. A large office with many users, OSes, computers, apps in use apparently does not have the flexibility needed to keep the Firefox browser happy. I certainly can't force the IT department to update Firefox (I have asked).

I'd love for Mozilla to give us control of this feature again, but I am not counting on it. So I am hoping that someone reading this has found a solution that will work for V72 of Firefox.

Each browser has issues, this one is minor, an annoyance for me. My continuing to use this browser depends on more than this issue. When I consider Pros and Cons of this browser this goes in the Cons column.

After needing to do heavy maintenance due to a malware/malvertising issue that cropped up, I needed to restart and refresh Firefox a couple of times. While all the tabs are still present, they are now "discarded". I am fully unable to restore them, currently. Googling has not given me any real insight as to what is going on.

I did have Tab Suspender extension/app in use, so perhaps I should have disabled that and refreshed all the tabs. Impossible to say now, and hindsight is not exactly helping me restore any of this.

I have a lot of tabs, and I have managed to copy the titles of each tab, so I should theoretically be able to find each one again. However, if there is an easier method to restore all my tabs, I'd prefer that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am making Firefox (Windows 10) available to my organisation by defining a Microsoft Intune line-of-business app. On uploading the enterprise .msi installer to Intune, the [App install context] interestingly is stuck in User mode; cannot select Device mode which suggests the program is not dual mode.

Since it installs to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\ I thought that's a device-wide installation? Is there something I am missing to make it per-machine (device) instead of per-user?

Hello! I am running firefox-esr version 68.5.0esr-1+b1 (from Debian testing) with a bunch of extensions (ublock origin, multi containers, suspend tab, open in browser, all in one sidebar, etc). Yesterday, I was suddenly unable to start firefox. I can see the profile manager and start another older profile, but not the one I really need to open. When I start from a terminal, I see this error message most of the time:

 ###!!! [Child][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

I have created a new profile and started it with success; after copying all files from the faulty profile, the new one does not start.

I have tried to run with safe mode: still does not start.

I have found https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/426502/firefox-keeps-crashing-upon-launch/466522 which doesn't help.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile shows me how to copy bookmarks and cookies over. (I am not using any synchronization service.) I would very much like not losing my session (open tabs), but I don't know which file or database is holding it.

I would prefer not to have to spend a lot of time reinstalling and reconfiguring all extensions, but maybe it will be necessary. Thanks for any help troubleshooting this.

I thought my work email address was the primary but my work account (which I do not use at home) does not have a second email address set.

I have tried all other email addresses I have, and none of them have been set up - I've even tried using my university email and this has not been set up. I can't get into my account, and I can't reset the password or change the primary/secondary and I can't find any real support articles on this here or ways to contact Mozilla to ask for confirmation of the alleged primary connected to my email address.

Does anyone have any idea has to how I can resolve this?

Occassionally, but reproducable enough Firefox gets the wrong ip address for images that are loaded. It happens in firefox for mac/linux/windows and from multiple locations. It never happens in Chrome/Safari.

https://ov1.flamingtext.com/a2.html

Load the above page, if you see "CoolLogo.com" then the bug has shown itself. If it doesn't happen, reload.

What is crazy is that it only happens for these ov10 and ov11 machines, and they get the other's ip.


I know what you are thinking, it's my DNS or something odd about my setup. Either on the client or server. But I believe I've eliminated that possibility. I'm still suspicious that we are doing something wrong, but when I see the wrong IP address in the dev tool, I'm not sure where else to look.

geoipdns config (authorative dns is ns1/ns2/n3.registerbot.com which I control). +ov10-engine.flamingtext.com:51.79.78.56:1200 #ov10 +ov11-engine.flamingtext.com:51.79.78.58:1200 #ov11 (there are no other entries), and true for all three name servers.

confirmed with dig, nslookup and ping. from multiple locations around the world. with at least 5 different ISP's. There are no entries in my /etc/hosts. The ip address is always correct. It's only wrong in firefox.

Any ideas?

When I try to edit my Squarespace site in Firefox 76.0.1, the elements do not behave correctly. I've had to use Chrome to manage my site instead. Squarespace was unable to help, so I was hoping someone here might be able to help! Firefox is infinitely better than Chrome and I'd much rather use it for my site editing.

The specific issue is that when I add a text block to a page, I am unable to actually add, select, or edit text. The cursor doesn't change to a text cursor, either. I've tried in a private tab to no avail and disable all add-ons.

Can anyone help?

Hi,

If a website is dual-stacked, Firefox will first try to connect over IPv6 and fallback to IPv4 if it fails. However, Firefox never tries again to use IPv6 if it as fails once. Sometimes this leads to connection error if the connection is intermittent (so IPv6 will fails at the time of the request, but it’s not specific to IPv6, and Firefox will try over IPv4) and if IPv4 is broken at all (e.g. because IPv6 works so nobody notices it). So when the connection comes back, Firefox will be stuck to IPv4 and the site won’t display even if works with IPv6. Even Ctrl-Shift-R doesn’t clear the connection cache.

I'm the sort of person who deletes his cache and history after EVERY session, running spyware and virus scanners every night.

Halfway through using the browser yesterday when several (not all) pages began appearing as they do in the attached photos. As shown with the two LinkedIn examples, reloading would sometimes get the page itself back up, but images (avatars) and embedded media won't show up.

I hadn't changed any settings before this started happening. I thought it might be an add-on/extension problem, but I have all the same ones in Opera and everything is showing up fine there.

I'm in Firefox 76.0.1 64 bit for Ubuntu 18.04. From a script javascript I open a new tab with mywindow= window.open(). Later when user click a button this page should be closed with mywindow.close() but it doesn't work because the mywindow page results already closed (mywindow.closed results true and though if I run mywindow.close() the page remains open. The page is created with window.open() from the script thereby should be legal to close that page. Here is the code: jsfiddle code I observed that later I allow the popup and I run again the code it works with the jsfiddle. Furthermore others users seem don't have my same problem thus I think could be a setting problem. Flipping dom.allow_scripts_to_close_windows in about:config to true don't change the situation. I have the same problem with the same version of Firefox in Window 10. With the browser Google Chrome the code works properly. Here is the early version of my question on stackoverflow: early question

Kindly someone could point me if this could be a bug or a setting problem or other, and anyway how to fix it?
