Since the latest Mac OS and Firefox updates, Firefox only shows the word "Firefox" on the menu bar. File, Edit, View etc. are hidden. How can I restore the menu bar to default view for ‘Firefox’?

I've noticed that searches retain information about my previous searches after I close the browser; 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' setting is selected. My tests seem to point to a security loophole with Cached Web Content.

Question: how can I ensure privacy settings are honored, or, if there is a loophole, how can I get Firefox to also clear Cached Web Content on close?

In my repeated test cases, I used bing to search for '5/8 irrigation kit', then closed the browser and reopened. Cookies and site data show 0 bytes (see attached images), Cached Web Content show something greater than 0.

Next, I go to bing.com/news, scroll through stories, and see an advert for an irrigation kit as one of the sponsored adverts.

As a further test after the original search, I try the following to see if I was being track another way, with the same resulting sponsored advert showing:

  • Restarted laptop
  • Restarted ONT (to get a new IP) and wifi

The following 2 scenarios seemed to resolve the issue after the original search and seeing the same resulting sponsored advert:

  • Turned on VPN
  • Cleared Cached Web Content

Clearing Cached Web Content seems to be the solution, and a possible privacy loophole. Cached Web Content is not part of the auto-delete-at-close feature.

Oddly, I haven't been able to consistently replicate the above starting with the VPN on and having it on through the tests. It sometimes shows the same resulting sponsored advert, and sometimes not.

I tried to replicate this with Safari. It's auto-delete feature at close and similar privacy setting seems to work according to what I would expect with the same test scenario; which is, no previous search-informed sponsored advert.

Details:

  • Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit)
  • Firefox privacy settings shown in attached images
  • MacBook Air 2019
  • macOS Catalina Version 10.15.4
  • Verizon Fios

Once I've logged in to my Firefox account, and entered my Firefox master password, it automatically inputs my username and password on a website with information that is sensitive and that I do NOT want to share. I understand that inputting my Firefox/Mozilla master password allows me personalized access to Firefox, but it should NOT automatically enter my username and password. This only happens with this one specific website, no other website automatically inputs my username and password when I click on it. I have cleared cache, and it is not listed in my list of automatic access passwords in my Firefox settings. I do use Lastpass and have removed the Lastpass extension.

I have a page with Javascript that makes server calls in the background. When Firefox restarts, that page does not show up but I can see the calls being made from the server logs and noticed that there are a number of children processes under firefox, like:

/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/plugin-container.app/Contents/MacOS/plugin-container -childID 6 -isForBrowser -prefsLen 56 -prefMapSize 258337 -sbStartup -sbAppPath /Applications/Firefox.app -sbLevel 3 -sbAllowAudio -sbAllowWindowServer -parentBuildID 20200507114007 -appdir /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Resources/browser -profile /Users/cyboBook/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/uoc2ga4o.default 2467 gecko-crash-server-pipe.2467 org.mozilla.machname.937263303 tab

I'm not sure which one is the one with the script but, after going down one by one, I usually kill the one with the calls before killing all the active tabs.

The "Restore previous session" checkbox is off in the System Preferences so, when I restart the browser, I don't see my previous session, which is what I want. However, it seems like firefox is restarting previous tabs anyway but not showing or rendering them so they are only partially restarted--enough so that the javascript starts running but not enough so I actually see that a web page exists and is causing a runaway script in the background.

This seems like a bug to me. Not sure how long a fix will take but, in the meantime, Question: can I/should I clear out the directory that has data for firefox to restore the session that I don't to have restored? Is it in the .../Profiles/XXXXX.default file (on OSX)?

Thanks!

Hi

I play an online game called Elvenar by Innogames. For some reason I cannot use my Firefox browser to play the game. I can acess the login website, I can login to my game just fine but when the actual game page opens up none of the game graphics load, there is a black screen. I can see the game menus on the gameplay screen, which are located around the perimeter of the screen and I can access the game toolbar, settings menu and I can log out using the game menu but again, no game graphics display, only a black screen. I've tried updating the browser, clearing cache etc and nothing works. Is there something else I can do to fix this issue?

Thank you

I cannot load any Facebook content on my browser. I have the most recent update installed on a brand new iMac I just set up a few days ago (v. 76.0.1 64 bit). Facebook loads fine on Chrome. I've tried operating the browser in safe mode but nothing changed. I use Norton antivirus though I don't have the browser extensions installed. In the screenshot attached, I cannot navigate from the masthead; content will not load when I click notifications or other menu items. Could not find an answer to this elsewhere so hoping someone has a solution!

I can not stop firefox replacing HTTP:// with HTTPS:// in urls. It seems normally you give it a url like http://anything.com and firefox tries https://anything.com:443 which fails to connect so it goes back to http and everything works.

My sites have a port number 8000. So i give it http://anything.com:8000. Firefox tries HTTPS://anything.com:8000 and gets an unencrypted response and throws this error.

   Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG

I have tried setting browser.urlbar.autoFill to false as in [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../935614] but this does not work.

How do I prevent the replacement?

I have avoided upgrading to the latest Firefox for over a year now because new versions always move the tabs back to the top of the browser window. But this time when Firefox reloaded it upgraded itself and I had no choice. I was a graphic artist for decades, and it makes no sense to have the tabs all the way at the top, because your eye has to jump up to the top, away from the window itself, every time you want to move between tabs. It makes no sense, but so far Firefox has ignored these complaints (I'm not the only one) and has not offered a simple toggle in preferences or somewhere to move the tabs where they should IMO be.

I seem to have lost the instructions to do my own coding to move the damn things, and I would really appreciate if someone could tell me how I can move them back where they belong. And Firefox, PLEASE. People have been requesting this for several years now that I'm aware of, so PLEASE make this simple change and allow users the choice of how their browser windows should look.

Hey there,

i recently upgraded from a mid-2010 macbook pro to a mid-2017 one, migrating all my data from a time machine backup. everything seemed to work seamlessly, but then i figured out that firefox doesn't show some pages, for example the video-streaming platform "chili", instead only blank pages show up. i already tried safe, which doesn't help. when i try to delete all my history and empty the cashe etc. firefox crashes continuously.

i figured out two things so far: first i changed my macbook user account and tried the same website in firefox on my guest account. here it worked. then i went back to my normal admin account, i deleted my firefox profiles folder and reinstalled firefox. now it also worked here. unfortunately this would make me lose all my settings and data, which i don't want, so i put a backup of my old profiles folder back in place to keep all my stuff, but the blank pages error remains.

if anyone could help me, i'd be super grateful!

thanks so much :) Miro

Hi! I just installed Firefox in my Debian 10, that I have just installed. I have to install several users in that old Mac Mini that was going to garbage and now it's working again!

I decided to activate Sync in order to keep working in the same pages from one session to another - handy! But after I login, the next page is a 500 error! This has ocurred in my Macbook with macOS, as it should, but thought I should report somewhere.

What is really strange is the logout button is not available in user menu as in the mac version, this is odd. It tuck me some hard time to manage to logout! Guess is a real flaw...

But my tests has worked really good in that old hardware!

I recently switched to firefox from chrome and am enjoying it for the most part, but have one thing that drives me crazy. When I click on a link for a file such as a YAML file, the only options I have are to open the file in another application or save the file to disk. Most of the time, this is not what I want. I really just need to take a quick look at the file to understand its contents.

Is there a way to set firefox to automatically display the file contents in-browser rather than requiring a separate application?
