I'm running 115.2.1esr x64 bit on Windows 7 pro. games on Facebook will not load I get 'Your browser does not support graphics API "WebGL2" error'.

In 'about:config' shows GL2 is enabled, yet Facebook games works with Google Chrome and MS Edge browsers, this seems to point to a Firefox issue.

I removed Firefox entirely, cleaning the registry etc, installed the latest version and get the same result.

Can anyone throw light on this? If need be I'll enclose

the troubleshooting info. 

Thanks, Dave

Hi,

Like everyone else, I have thousands of bookmarks subdivided into folders. When you use 'Bookmark Manager' in Chrome it opens in a live tab and stays resident in that tab when you use it to open other URLs in new tabs. In Firefox, click to open a URL in a new tab and 'Wham', every time, the Bookmark Manager is gone. It is then a faff to open it again to find a different bookmark.

Unless I'm missing something, this involves opening the same Bookmark Manager in it's own window every time I want a bookmark, which seems ridiculous. If it persisted in its own window that would be something...

Is this correct? Is this a shortcoming and is there a fix for this please?

Thank you Ian

Current OS: Win10 22H2 x86 [64-bit]

Was running FF 115.1.0 ESR [64-bit] and wanted to upgrade to the latest ESR [115.2.0 64-bit] Using this 115.1 on following release notes page, clicked the blue 'Download Firefox ESR' button www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/115.2.0/releasenotes/

[this blue button link is https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-esr-latest-ssl&os=win&lang=en-US]

This downloaded file 'Firefox Setup 102.15.0esr.exe' i.e. this is the latest 102, and not 115 As I didn't notice this was not the expected version [doh! My weak excuse is I switchedg the 15 and 2], I went ahead and installed this earlier version ontop of my existing, getting the usual prompts

When I ran the 'new' FF, I got a 'You've launched an older version of Firefox' dialog Process explorer shows this app as ver 102.15.0.8634 32-bit app

I used another browser to download 115.2.0 64-bit 'Firefox Setup 115.2.0esr.exe' and installed atop then all was ok

So apart from why it downloaded the older version, shouldn't running the 102 install ontop of 115 prompt user that 1) installing an earlier version 2) installing 32-bit app when previous was 64-bit

This could have been v confusing to some users so just wanted to point it out...

FYI: I previously ran 102.14 ESR before upgrading it to 115.1 a few weeks ago

P.S. I think issue 2) has happened to me before - I didn't notice for a while [so switching bit width is transparent...impressive :-)]

Hello Guys,

in our network we have several Fritzbox Routers which we remote administrate. If we connect to the routers with Firefox V115.2.0 we get a warning message - because it´s a Fritzbox self-signed certificate and cannot be validated. No Problem - everything okay with the message. But in Firefox 115.2.0 there is no advanced button that lets you go futher to connect to the website. With Version 102.14.0 ESR the advanced button is there. The webinterface works fine with Edge and Chrome (with warning but with advanced button to continue)

Hello,

Fireox has opened for me for years, but now it won't open! I get this error message: Secure Connection Failed

<An error occurred during a connection to package.onesearch.org. Peer’s Certificate has been revoked.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.>

I can see the package.onesearch.org site trying to open BEFORE Firefox, but I am NOT trying to open it! I never even heard of it! Why would a site open at the same time as Firefox?

How do I delete package.onesearch.org from the opening? It is not in my bookmarks.

Thanks for your help.

Whenever I install a new version of Firefox it deletes the "Distribution" folder (in Windows "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\distribution"). So I have to keep a backup copy in another location so I can restore it.

Why? What is the purpose of doing this? It makes no sense. Is there a configuration setting to stop this?

Ever since the Firefox 115.2.0esr came out, all searches — not just Google but any sites that have a search box — freeze the page for nearly 10 full seconds before it initiates the search. I tried disabling my antivirus just to be sure an update to that isn't messing with things and it's not. This is definitely a Firefox issue and a VERY annoying one. I can't believe an emergency patch hasn't already been released!

After Firefox update 115.2.0esr (20230821110938) was installed on 9/8, I could not properly access my online banking accounts. Installation of Firefox update 115.2.1esr (20230912014149) on 9/16 did not resolve the issue. Can these two updates be uninstalled? I was still able to access my online banking accounts after Firefox update 115.1.0esr (20230724124053) was installed on 8/8. I want to revert back to that point to see if this will resolve the issue.

Hello everyone,

to archieve some good old games, I use an special version of Firefox. Firefox (MyPal): 29.2.0, with Adobe Flash preinstalled, Disk-Cache

For most games it will suffice: After loading all content online, it will be available offline too. But... some audio/video files will be saved in memory cache - %temp%\mozilla-temp-files\*[random-auffix] - instead of in disk cache. After closing session they get deleted and after restart they are saved again, with another suffix.

Sample file: http://arcaneonlinegame.epizy.com/Arcane/frames_files/midi/Ophelia's Journal.mp3 that is shipped with http://arcaneonlinegame.epizy.com/Arcane/Arcane.htm

How can I tell Firefox to permanent save streamed audio/video files, like Firefox does with everything else? In the end the music should play if I open the browser offline too.

Thank you in advance for your help. Drago
