Hi there,

we are running Firefox ESR 78.1.0 (64bit) on our company computers (Windows 10). When i try to open linkedin the startpage appears correctly but as far as i search for a person i only get a blank page. I tried safe mode already, disabled local security protection, no addons are installed, no blocker, disabled hardware acceleration etc. Problem still exists. I also tried to open a linkedin profile within firefox 79 on a mac, same issue here.

Any held is much appreciated.

Best, Patrick

Hello there,

I've recently switched from Firefox to Firefox Developer. I've noticed that while in FF, I am able to change the default fonts (such as San-Serif font to Inter, and Monospace font to Monaco), but in FF Developer, I am unable to change the fonts to anything but the defaults. Can someone help me fix this issue, or is this issue a feature of FF Developer edition?

Thanks a lot, dodeca12

After a reboot of windows 7 some of my PC looked different then after a system restore everything looked fine except Firefox was back to its default. Tried swapping back to a previous saved profile, also blank.

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

Several issues since doing a refresh for Firefox to speed up desktop

Several issues since doing a refresh for Firefox – email links open in new window instead of tab. New window does not have my bookmarks. New window will not move to another open window. Firefox Options does not control my Firefox.

When I open Firefox Options the top line reads “Your browser is being managed by your organization.” That link opens Enterprise Policies DNSOverHTTPS Enabled false Locked true

I still have the “Old Firefox Data” folder on my desktop from the refresh. I question if it would resolve the issues. If I delete Firefox and then re-install it, will I be able to find my many years, long list of bookmarks?

I got an automatic update from Opera that I did not ask for, so all of my logins were lost. After recovering them and signing in, when I closed Opera, all of my freaking logins were gone again. There is no way to stop this from happening, because Opera likes to make it difficult to stop auto-updates and to stop passwords/usernames from being wiped out when closing Opera. OK, fine. I'll go back to Firefox, then.

So when trying to login to my Yahoo mail account on Firefox there is a challenge page that sends a verification code to my Android phone. I clicked yes, but there is no place to put the verification from the challenge page. When I go back to the Yahoo mail login page, it goes back to the challenge page again, sending a verification to my Android again. This does not happen in Opera, but there is still the issue of being kicked out of all of my social media, email accounts every freaking time.

I have WORK to do and am not interested in being a coder. I am a writer. So how can I stop this from happening? I would like to go on with my freaking life!

Below is a screen-cap of the challenge screen. Do you see any way to get past it? NO! the only thing that is possible is to get to the goddamn Help screen. I don't want any Help. I want to log into my Yahoo mail. Again, this is not happening in Opera, but Opera keeps kicking me out of my logins.

Like in Firefox Focus, trying to access local storage using `/sdcard` is denied or returns an error, however on the Firefox common, accessing /sdccard storage is pretty simple. Although that's pretty helpful in certain cases, however I would like that to manually disable. Are there any ways to do so, such that putting in /sdcard in the address bar returns a N/A result. (:

After hooking up four devices to sync through Firefox, I ended up with a mess and a lot of irritation which I have not recovered from. That was six months ago. What I failed to understand is that there is no control of the direction of sync. I presumed that all would sync from my primary account computer. Wrong and truly a disaster because I had spent hours organizing thousands of bookmarks. An old computer with an old bookmarks setup (very disorganized) added its confused mess back into my attempt on the new computer to finally get organized. I still have not sorted through most of the mess.

So how in the hell does Sync actually and exactly work? Is there any directional flow? Or does it just mash the shared stuff together. How can I delete any bookmark file Sync has at Firefox server with exact knowledge of what I am doing? Why is this stuff so obscure? I exactly want to know how to ensure that Sync has no cache of obsolete material and exactly, if possible, to direct the flow....should I use only share a tab? one at a time?
