I downloaded Firefox installer (for version 79.0) on Windows via Edge from here https://www.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/new/ Checksums of the downloaded installer are (calculated by `certutil -hashfile "Path_to_Firefox_installer" SHA256` and `certutil -hashfile "Path_to_Firefox_installer" SHA512` in Windows command line):

SHA256 caceeacec49a4d4cac94bb48266adb28bc53515345619e336c26488846717a56

SHA512 0c1ffcd219c0c788ac01064bfbb800a95990111539e7ed20c7e9b279c7502e59cef1c7b0274f57cba71bd3bf2493d579b9f7157346ad9a0821913ecba6558e02

they do not match any from https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS and https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS

When I downloaded the same installer on Windows via Firefox checksums were different than before (calculated by the same command)

SHA256 bc4dd6ce1b53b194bc95ef908278f670494dd5fb782eea2da563098e58a2db3d

SHA512 ecec87468644b2219618e21e127d54460222346fb639a11bdd31685ffcd9ce56219991a64e4144f2f80a8f88672dbad3ab4f0edda388c11c4d9bcd8446e16a8c

they match "win32/pl/Firefox Installer.exe" on "https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS" and "https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS".

What is strange the signatures of the files are identical. I downloaded installer two more times (with restarting computer in between, why not) and it gave me exact same hashes depending only on what browser i used for downloading them. Is it a known problem when downloading firefox via Edge? Is it known why this happens? Does this problem occur to you? Is Firefox downloaded via Edge safe to install?

Thanks

For about the last 5 hours, when I download Firefox, nothing syncs after I log in -- no add-ons, no bookmarks, no history. I've seen no mention of this on the support page.

I first noticed this about 3 pm Sunday, EDT.

Is no one else experiencing this?

Hello,

Video recording of the issue: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1JfPP-asNloE3WJZAAWHsn6pt5HcbYvWI 1. Open a page with reference to some particular part of the page in url (i.e. it looks like <URL>#<tag>). A simple example is to open some Doxygen docs and click on some function in an outline. 2. Scroll away from the place you initially arrived to (i.e. away from the tag position). 3. Scroll down (up) if you previously scrolled up- (down-) wards with respect to the tag location. 4. You are back at the tag (without intent).

I guess this happens due to update of the page (this will trigger any other browser to reset current location to the starting one).

1/ Firefox will not play any videos from Youtube.

   a/ I am NOT in Youtube restricted mode.
   b/ I have DuckDuckGo and AdBlock activated. Deactivating these does not affect this behavior.

2/ Other browsers (both Chrome and Edge) will play those same videos.

Thanks for assistance!

After clicking on Delete cookies and Cache for only ONE particular website, in Cookies and Site Data, Manage Data then closing Firefox and restarting it, it lost ALL of my Tabs, previous browsing session history and my Bookmarks Setting which was pinned on the left side of the screen and the Menu Bar! I tried Refreshing Firefox but that didn't help. Under Startup, I had the box selected to Restore Previous Session. What's going on with Firefox?? This is especially frustrating because I don't have time to waste trying to fix Firefox---especially while simply trying to fix a problem with one website which as made thing worse.

Why should this problem occur and how can I get all of my previous settings back shortly and make then stay?

For many years now with FireFox the ability to get to the Home Page of any and all YouTube Channels has been made non-existent. There's no way to do that because of the Web-coding that FIreFox has implemented. There's also another issue involving YouTube; that issue is the Point of Entry of Commenting. When you go below Description of Video, there should be a Comment Entry Block. In FireFox that does not exist. These two issues need to be address and fixed. If you think that I am not telling you the truth, use FireFox and on another PC with Chrome, Chromium, Brave, and any other. You will see what I am talking about. This is the best way to allow people to actually see for themselves the problems. Please fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank You, KLC

I want to enable two-factor authentication for my Firefox account. I did the standard steps at accounts.firefox.com. Everything seems to work except that the codes generated by Google Authenticator aren't accepted by accounts.firefox.com. I then tried Microsoft authenticator, with the same result. Then Authy, again same result.

Here are my steps. > Google Authenticator already installed on phone. It works with my Google account. > I used Mozilla Firefox to log-in at accounts.firefox.com on my laptop Steps at firefox.com: log-in > Click to enable two-step authentication > Click Add account on Google authenticator (on my phone) > Scan the QR code showing on laptop screen > Google Authenticator adds the account and displays a 6-digit code > Enter the code at accounts.firefox.com

Everything works except the last step. Accounts.firefox.com rejects the code every time. Same for every other authenticator app I tried.

Hi folks! I'm currently using an website that could as well be a standalone app. I'd love it to show up in my Mac dock as a normal app, similar to what the "Create shortcut" functionality does in Chrome. Create a desktop shortcut to a website Firefox's "shortcut" functionality seems to only work in Windows, and does not seem to provide the same full experience.

Not a big deal, but it's clearly new in the last week? or so: Here's a webpage with lots of forum links on it: https://www.bogleheads.org/index.php Clink a link, takes you to that post's thread. Then go back to first page (click left arrow, or type alt-<) and there are all the same links you first saw, BUT the one you just visited would normally have changed to indicated it's now a visited link (my default scheme is blue to purple). The "PROBLEM" is (like I said, not huge) that now the link is NOT changing to purple, it stays blue. If I click within a blank space within the the page, sometimes that makes the color change happen, but sometimes not. There's some sort of "refresh" that's not taking place (reliably) like it used to. Going to the same link a 2nd time and then back seems invariably to change that link's color.

Like I said, it's NOT a big issue, but it IS real, and it's NEW! That's all.
