I do web design. And my problem is that I used to click the refresh button in firefox and it would instantly load an updated version of the pages I was working on. But now it does the exact same thing I hate about chrome. It loads pages using cached css and javascript files. And the only way to view the updated websites is to go private mode which is very annoying. Is there an option to get around this? Or it's a software problem?

Hello Everyone,

Last Friday (10/16/20) I opened a pdf file from a link that expired at the end of the day. I believe I clicked "open" instead of "save" and was able to view the pdf from the browser with a URL destination leading to a directory in my computer. No sweat, its on the computer... I figured I can access it later on. Today I look in my temp folder (URL destination) and my downloads, and can't find the file. I go to my firefox Library and see that the file is in the "downloads" section. However, it says that the file is moved or missing, and I don't remember moving or deleting this file...

Any idea what firefox did with this file? Is there any way i can restore it or restore firefox history containing the file data? Appreciate any help. Thank You.

Hi all After update 90.0.2 installed on my computer, FIrefox started flickering all the time a new page gets opened. I have never had such a problem before, nor I had any hardware change in the last two months. I tried several proposed solutions concerning flickering like refreshing, disabling hardware acceleration etc. but nothing helps. I wonder what happened in 90.0.2 which caused that. I just installed update 91.0 and the flickering still persists.

I am using Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit on a Dell Vostro 3750 Laptop if that matters. Thank you

The new version of Firefox has removed the drop-down arrow from the address bar, a feature I use several times a day.

Previously, there was a way to restore this by setting a number of "browser.urlbar" options to "False." However, these are currently set at False.

Please advise. Without the drop-down arrow, Firefox is not useful at all.

Hello,

Firefox is blocking some website because it says it's not secure (see picture). I don't give a .... So I want to access the website anyways. However, there is NO way to do that, NONE. I've searched everywhere. So I can only rely on you guys. How can I force the connection or bypass the F security, or get rid of it, or something... anything.

Here is a historic of my tests : My issue is simple. 2 days ago I could surf on some website completely fine. Then all of a sudden half my website get SO CALLED "The connection has timed out".

- Test server : So I go on the usual website-server-is-down to test if the server is down. The website itself is perfectly fine according to 5 testing website. - Test server 2 : Then I go through a "browser inside browser" website to test it again (dunno how it's called). I can access the main page then navigate fine on all test-browser. The website is therefore fine. - "Not secure" : Despite the viciously misleading message saying "connection timed out" that makes you believe the website is down and gone, it is actually fine, as proven above. It's just for some god unknown reason Firefox decided to block it, without telling you it's actually blocking it (nice move!). - No button : I searched but could not find a way to either force the connection or create security exception. I tried disabling all security in "privacy" tab in the option, no deal. - Certificate : I also went to try and add the website as an exception in the certificate list, but Firefox pretends it cannot connect to the website, therefore you cannot add the certificate. - Security.enterprise : I have removed the access from Avast to Firefox allowing me to unlock security.enterprise_roots.enabled. Once I had it unlocked, I tried either True or False, but no deal (including reboots comp & browser) - I spent 4 hours searching solutions on the web, but couldn't fin any. Is Firefox actively preventing me for surfing the web as I like... ?

In the end, I still cannot access this website. And I wanna say to Mozilla : It's my own liberty if I want to go and shoot myself in the foot by visiting a so-called "unsecured website". I should be able to do so if I want to...

Anyway, if any gosu out there has the skill, please help ? ^^; Thanks

Today I kept getting the above error message when I tried to log on to Halifax online banking. I do not run a VPN. I cleared the Halifax cookies. I rebooted my router and I rebooted my laptop. I still get this error message. However I can log on OK if I use Chrome so this must be a Firefox issue. Any other suggestions?

Does Firefox support .mp4 video?

On page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/html5-audio-and-video-firefox?redirectslug=viewing-html5-audio-and-video&redirectlocale=en-US

I find "AAC and H.264/MPEG-4 AVC are patented audio/video compression formats. They can be viewed in Firefox using built-in OS libraries (so neither Mozilla nor you need to pay a fee) if embedded in the MP4 container format (.mp4, .m4a, .m4p, .m4b, .m4r, .m4v file types)."

But when I create an HTML page with the following HTML5 code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
</body>
This is a test of video.
<video src="C:/MyVideoFile.mp4" controls>
</video>
</html>

I get the error "No video with supported format and MIME type found". Does Firefox in fact support .mp4 video? If so, what changes do I need to make in the HTML?

I just recently upgraded to Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) for Windows 7. Before the upgrade if I wheel clicked on a link it would open up in a new tab. Now it does absolutely nothing. I've even tried holding the wheel click for 10 seconds, still nothing.

I have verified the following settings in about:config; browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true middlemouse.contentLoadURL=false middlemouse.paste=false middlemouse.scrollbarPosition=false

When I was doing a search for related questions to this problem I found a user 3 years ago had a similar problem, and that they had an addition setting: middlemouse.openNewWindow=true. This setting no longer seems to be there. I have no idea if this setting was recently removed, and is the source of my problem, or if it was removed a while ago and my problem is the result of some other change. I have restarted Firefox twice, and even rebooted my laptop, in an effort to fix this problem. Nothing has worked. Depending on what I am doing I rely on using the wheel click HEAVILY, as it is much simpler to close a tab then to hit the back button 4, 10, or 20 times to return to where I started, or if I'm trying to keep track of what links I've followed from doing a search without having to re-do the search and hope I get the exact same results (with Google I never do).

At this time I am already heavily inclined to just return to the previous version of Firefox, despite how much of a pain that will be, however this is a recently released update, so I feel I should give the devs a chance to fix any new bugs from the update. That, and I won't have the time around work for several days, probably over a week, which makes it more practical to give the devs a chance to release a patch that fixes the problem.

Hi, I am using the dark mode in firefox which is god sent boon to persons having glaucoma, with dark mode in firefox and dark reader add on. This was going well and after a recent update, I could not find it working. The dark mode is enabled and dark reader was there, but the browsing pages only shows in white. Has firefox changed anything recently to have this issue? If I miss something would the experts say, how to get back my dark browsing experience in all sites. If I find anything not visible in some sites, I used to go the windows properties and change the contrast theme to windows basic blue theme and then switched back to dark theme. this was helping the glaucoma persons very much. please, say how to solve this problem

firefox tab name edit: can a user name tab at will ?

right now it has LOGO and "Home" but i want it to read something like OSC-US Office of Special Counsel-Independent Agency-Home because i just do.

i have three other bookmarks for OSC: i can edit the bookmark name from "properties" but have never known whether i can also edit the name shown on a tab.

LOGO Home isn't too helpful to me. but even just knowing that i CAN'T edit tab names will be helpful to know, so i can stop thinking about it and get some sleep after another bag of chocolate-chip cookies. being an american right now is plenty stressful.

who named them "cookies" anyhow?-is it bc they kind of leave crumbs? did i win?

thank you for helping. i do appreciate it.

Bulk web page Images Download via Tools > Page Info > Media > Select All > Save As - no longer works as it did in previous versions of Firefox. Now, when trying to download all images on a web page all at once via Tools > Page Info > Media > Select All > Save As - When clicking the Select All button a new window opens up but no images have been selected (highlighted in blue) so when Save As button is selected a new window opens asking which folder to save the images to and after selecting the folder nothing happens (no images are saved). This procedure for saving all images on a web page worked just fine in previous versions of Firefox, but now it no longer works. I don't know if this is a bug or coding error or if it has been done intentionally for some strange reason.
