Hi,

I'm using Duckduckgo as my search engine, but when I type in a search string, it Firefox prepends it with https://html.duckduckgo.com/html/... This opens a search page that doesn't follow my dark theme. When I click on a link, another link is added that creates a link back to the same URL, causing a loop. This never happened before I upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04 & the latest version of Firefox, 100.0.2. How can I change this back?

Thanks!

The photos page in OneDrive is having trouble loading most of the time. The page has the OneDrive header, and the section where the photos should show up is simply blank. Screenshot attached.

This is working fine on Google Chrome, but I would prefer not to use chrome for privacy reasons.

Can anyone help me with this?

For the 2 weeks or so, I've been having an intermittent problem connecting to any Google services (Gmail, google.com, Google Calendar, Youtube). In gmail, it tells me that I'm offline or "Oops, error getting emails". If I browse to www.google.com, I just get a blank screen.

This seems to have coincided approximately with the release of Firefox 100, but I'm not totally sure it's related. If I clear all cookies and cache, that seems to resolve the problem temporarily, but it comes back. If I open a Private window or another container, that also seems to resolve the problem temporarily, but it comes back.

Other browsers work with no problem.

If I open a new container, it will work for a while, but eventually stop connecting. This doesn't happen with other websites. Only Google related websites.

I have tried doing a Firefox refresh, but that didn't resolve the problem.

I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 which is using the snap package of Firefox.

It seems that I cannot open local files in the /tmp directory. When I place a test.html file there and run `firefox /tmp/test.html`, it returns a file not found error. Why?

I don't have the problem with files in my home directory.

Hello,

Recently I was forced to install some "stuff" on my work laptop. Unfortunately, I am not quite sure what they installed. I have contacted my IT department and all I've gotten in response is that "we haven't blocked any browser or sites."

Since this update, I find that Gmail will eventually show an error and when I go to refresh the page, the loading screen never completes. Additionally, Youtube will eventually declare that I have no connection and at that point I can no longer open new browser tabs.

I have updated Firefox, used troubleshooting mode, removed extensions, turned off ad blockers (uBlock Origin), and nothing seems to work—these issues always appear again eventually.

I would greatly prefer to not use Chrome, so if there is anything I can do to fix these issues I would be all ears to know what it is.

Thank you, John

At random, whenever use a search box on a page, Firefox will lock up. The "loading" icon on the tab will animate as normal, but the entire window won't respond. If I press the show desktop button and then try to reveal Firefox, none of the windows will appear. I'd have to go into Windows Task Manager and be lucky enough to terminate the correct process containing the tab, or else I'd have to start all over again.

If you visit a website frequently and want to wipe delete a website from your historical record, Firefox blocks on the UI thread to do this.

In my experience, depending on how often the site is visited, the single thread on a processor can be pegged for many minutes, consuming gigabytes of memory.

If this is not a bug, then it is a very poor user experience. I was only able to resume after terminating the application in Task Manager.

Version 100.0.2. Desktop. Windows 10.

Every time I log in or refresh outlook, I get an email ad for outlook upgrade. It is from microsoft, and can be opened as an email, but it is an ad and can't be blocked. These emails remain blocked with Brave, and I am running an ad blocker. Will mozilla update to remove these ads, or is there an ad blocker that works better with Mozilla.

I watch videos on dropout.tv which uses the Vimeo SDK as their player for the videos. After switching to Firefox, the video progress has consistently started from where I left off on Chrome. The site doesn't remember where I ended the video when I watch it on Firefox. I assume this has to do with the cookies, but I've manually added "dropout.tv" to the list of exceptions in Firefox settings so that that site is always allowed to store cookies.

Returning briefly to Chrome, the player immediately tracked my progress again, so the issue is definitely related to Firefox somehow.

I used to sign in to my credit card through Elan Financial Services and then I would highlight my credit card, tell it the date range I needed to update to Quicken, and hit enter. a popup would give me the option of opening the file or to save the quicken file to my computer. I would select the option to open the file and it would update my register on Quicken. Now, I only get the option to save the file to my computer. On Microsoft Edge, I still get the choice to open or save the file. Why doesn't Firefox support the Open Function anymore. I use Firefox for everything, but now I have to remember to switch to Edge for this one important update. Is this a change in Firefox or something I have to deal with Elan on? Thanks for any help. --sgb

Hello! I hope this is the right place to ask.

So i used glassmorphism on a simple webapp (backdrop-filter). Wrote a Fallback for firefox with the help of ::before and filter:blur() as backdrop-fillter's are sadly still not supported, eventhough they look really really nice.

How ever the fallback works on macOS as expected but on Windows Firefox behaves very very wierd. First of all the blured effect is behind everything else and you have to change the z-index to actually see it and if you do it is actually much larger than it should be. If you play around with the z-indexes you actually get the blur at the right position but the area is still much larger than on mac and not fitting the border at all and after a few hours of trying, I'm not sure if this is a bad by me or not. Kinda feels like it shouldnt behave like that.

I go to Norton, sign in, then go to another sigh-in button and the screen just flashes. Click it several times and just see the screen flash. Norton logged in remotely and went through some hoops but they came up with the same thing. Cleared the cache, history, no-go. They tell me that is is a problem with Firefox and not them. (and recommended an expensive organization to get help from) This is a computer I just reset to factory and reinstalled completely. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello! After updating to the latest version of Firefox (100.0.2, 64-bit), I notice that Google search stops working every now and then. By stops working, I mean I can't use their website https://www.google.com or search using Firefox's address bar or search bar. Searching with other search engines like Bing is working normally. In order to get Google search working again, I have to close and restart Firefox. However, after some time, it stops working again. How can I fix this problem?
