Hello,

Firefox is my preferred browser but lately I will periodically have an issue where the text of an email will come through with random special characters (please see image attached). I tried running the browser in Private Mode and got the same result, but when I tried Safari there doesn't seem to be an issue.

Thank you in advance for any tips or thoughts!

When browser is closed and I click a link in an app/email, FF opens my old tabs in one window and a second window with the link I clicked.

The problem is basically in the title. The expected behavior:

1. With FF closed, I click a link in an app or document. 2. FF opens and shows my old tabs in one or more windows. 3. The link I clicked opens in a new tab in the same window as my old tabs.

My browser is set to "Open previous windows and tabs" on restart, and to "Open links in a new tab rather than a new window." I tried some basic about:config fixes as advised here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1331882) with no luck.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot this?

Firefox 105 - MacOS - add-ons include uBO, Containers.

Hello guys, this would be a little awkward. Since I've run into this problem a limited number of times and I can't reproduce it. But it does appear frequently and is very annoying. I had to ask here for advice and help.

The device I use is a MacBook, running the official version of Firefox, and as far as I know this problem has been there for at least half a year. I'm used to keyboard operations, usually I use Cmd+T to create a new tab, then the cursor is focused on the address bar, and I type the URL. Since I'm typing an address that I visit often, maybe I just type the first few letters, the URL gets autocompleted, and then I just hit enter and the page opens in my new tab. But sometimes I hit enter twice (eg not English input method). At this time, I noticed that in addition to the URL I wanted to open, there's an additional tab. This tab was blank, or the page I just visit.

From my personal understanding, I may have performed the above operations to create a new tab or clone a tab at the same time. But I don't think my operations will cause these to happen concurrently.

Below are the extensions that I have installed, in my impression I don't get this bug in Windows, but I don't use Windows a lot. In addition, my MacBook keys may be sticky, or it may be a system problem.

Hola, El "nss internal pkcs #11 module" que está instalado no me deja cargar el certificado del DNIe. He intentado descargarlo pero me dice que "no es posible desargar el módulo". Lo que necesito saber es cómo pueso "descargar" o desinstalar el "nss internal pkcs #11 module"

(He instalado un nuevo módulo que sí que me deja cargar el certificado. El problema es que cuando me conecto a alguna de las páginas oficiales en las que necesito identificarme con el DNIe me da error y creo que es porque el nss internal interfiere de algún modo.)

Os agradezco de antemano vuestra ayuda.

Hi,

I'm working on a website which uses third-party cookies for user login. But, recently, firefox has made Total Cookie Protection default making third-party cookies obsolete. To gain access to unpartitioned cookie jar, the documentation (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Document/requestStorageAccess) tells that we have to call requestStorageAccess() API on a "user generated event". With this as a limitation, I have to add an additional button to create an user generated event. This is affecting my website's user experience.

Is there a way / hack to call this API without an user generated event like a button click.

Thanks in advance
