I have noticed since last FF update to 128.0 (64) that my extension to run EXVPN in firefox or even PBM the icon will not go to on unless manually checked then it runs. On installation it auto checks the green checked box with the EXVPN logo (badge) everything as it should be so when you go into EXVPN Badge into settings and check the start up every time broswer starts it still will not run automatically. I enabled PBM in the installation of the extension. I also cant contact EXVPN via chat box in PBM mode but will now do so in FF.

I also use chrome and this runs like a dream in it - open and the badge is checked contact EXVPN no issues. I had to use chrome to get help from EXVPN techs for about 7hrs of their time and they like me are putting this onto your latest update.

I run Win 10 fully updated the latest version of EXVPN and the latest with FF.

I have uninstalled FF cleared caches and cleared reg edits then reinstalled - No difference.

As this is a public forum within FF and apparently its the only way to get help with this i've been forced to come this way even after contacting Mozilla for help ( utter BS in my opinion),

As this is a potential security risk ill be a bit doubious of those rushing to offer help why wouldnt you be when you have to go through this crap to get a fix.

IDM has released it's latest version 6.42 build 15 with a very good improvement but it requires updated integration module from 6.42.12 to 6.42.15. On chrome and edge, integration module 6.42.15 is available but Firefox seems forgetting about it. Here is the link for info about IDM https://www.internetdownloadmanager.com/news.html Can you please fix this so that I can continue using Firefox?

I use many tabs on various sites for business and recently went to a site that appears to keep opening tabs that can only be seen in Task Manager. I belive this has been happening before as when closing Firefox and watching Task Manger there always seemed to be a lot more app lines than tabs open.

It happened again today with just a few tabs open so I was able to detect the real culprit. https://www.sharecast.com/

I have popups blocked in settings with a few exceptions ( does not include the site that I have found is causing issues) Example:

I had 15 tabs open. Opened a new tab for the above site. In no time at all Task Manger is showing 23 then jumped to 36.

the tab(s) can increase the firefox total memory used from .8GB to 2.6GB. CPU .7% to 70%+

I am sure this is not the only site doing this.

So my question: Is there a setting that will stop this happening whilst still using the site? Just tested using Edge and the same happens. Might just have to refrain from using the site. Thanks Peter

Mozilla added Accuweather to my New Tab page today. I can't use it because my VPN uses other locations. I attempted to remove it using the "solution" from another user's post 9 months ago. However, none of those things worked. There is no "Tools" option in the menu and I unchecked and blocked every item on the "Page Info" tab under the "Permissions" header. Zero result.

The Accuweather feed shows up in the upper left corner of the computer screen and does not have a "dismiss" option. I did notice that it has some entries in about:config. Is the solution to be found there?

Hi everyone,

Since updating to Firefox 128, I've encountered problems with my Axios requests that have extended timeouts. These requests used to work perfectly fine in previous versions of Firefox, but now they consistently fail sending status code = 0. I suspect there may have been some breaking changes in the latest update that could be affecting the way Axios handles timeouts.

Has anyone else experienced similar issues with Axios requests in Firefox 128? Are there any known breaking changes in this version that could be related to this problem? If so, is there a known solution or workaround to resolve this issue?

Thank you for your help!

when i try and 'send tab to device' to another of my connected devices it shows 2 ipads. just that they are ipads with no further info. When i check my connected devices, there is only 1 ipad listed. This is very confusing as i used to have 2 ipads but gave one to a friend whom i no longer speak with. i have no idea if the tab i am sending is going to that ipad or my ipad so i have to send to both. how do i correct 'send tab to device' so it only shows the ipad that i am signed in on?

Windows 11 Pro - Firefox blocks Instagram.

I have no site blocks on or in my Firefox browser. There aren't any plug-ins enable or preventing Firefox from opening Instagram and sometimes other sites, yet it does this now. Whether it is 1 tab or 8 tabs, the outcome is the same.

I've cleared the cache (daily), browser cookies, temp files (daily) and even restarted my computer many times, yet this issue still persists.

I have attached the error message and proof that I have the latest Firefox update.

Note: Other web browsers I use, don't have this issue. This issue is only with Firefox.

Please help me resolve this issue. Your help is greatly appreciated.

I'm having a problem and need your help. Every time I try to go to Gmail (gmail.com) or Google Earth (earth.google.com), I get redirected to this site called grandid.com which is the website my school uses to log in to school accounts. This is my home cumputer so i am not intrestend in that and would like to completly block grandid.com from ever redirecting me. It's blocking me from logging into my accounts and using these services.

I've cleared my cache and cookies and even tried blocking grandid.com with extensions, but nothing is working. This is really frustrating and messing up my ability to check my emails and use Google Earth.

Can you please help me fix this?

I find all white websites extremly unpleasant. I have other problems, but frankly I can't stand getting flashbanged like this.

I have tried setting "Website appearance"

To automatic, light, dark, it does nothing, mozilla.org does not respect this request apparently.

I searched in mozilla.org profile while logged in, there is no option to dark mode the website.

I understand that mozilla.org is a website you just visit rarely when you have a problem. So it is expected that the user will endure some discomfort. But this is just too annoying, I will search for my problems on stackoverflow instead argggg !

Alternatively, can I whitelist darkreader to work on all pages include mozilla.org ?

thanks !
