I asked this issue before. https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/cant-login-whatsapp-web-after-early-april-2022-update/97589 It's still continuing.

Expansion: 新同文堂 facebook container ublock origin

I tested a fresh install of firefox. Still can’t get login with the privacy mode. But the normal mode works. When I adjust the settings checking “Do not keep history” and “Clear cookies and website data when closing firefox”. It returned. After a new installation process, I stoped when I checked “Do not keep history” I speculated that this the effect.

But no matter which browser I used, I save no browsing history records. Why only firefox got compatibility problem? Or did whatsapp work anything behind?

Starting this morning I suddenly cant delete or mark emails as read in Outlook.live.com. Even if I open an email, and it appears as read after that, if I refresh or leave the page and come back, its marked as read again.

I tried dropping all add-ons (a kill switch to drop all add-ons and re-activate them is still a feature I feel Firefox needs, I have to click every single one of them every time) to no avail.

I was in the process of writing this question on the Microsoft forums (which is usually like whizzing in the wind) when I thought to try a different browser. I had zero issues and Outlook.live.com worked perfectly normal on Microsoft Edge.

This HAS to be a bug in a recent update in Firefox

For ages I've had my tabs automatically restored when opening Firefox. But as of the last few days it won't. The old links are saved so I can restore them one by one through history but that's not automatic. And if I click on restoration in History it will bring up a whole bunch of old tabs not neccessarily from the last session.

I'm on the same computer as I've been for over a year, so I don't know what what the problem is. I've searched on it and tried to re-check the box for this function. But it won't apply...

First of all, an important thing to note is that this is happening on only my school laptop, and not my pc. This problem occurs on all school laptops that have Firefox installed. The reason I, and some others want to use Firefox is simply to get an ad-blocker as extensions are blocked on the default browsers (chrome and edge).

Anyway, the issue is as such: One moment, I will be browsing normally, and then the next, a page will stop loading or refuse to load any new content. It is just like there is no internet going to Firefox, despite the laptop having internet connection as seen in other programs. The way I fix this is by opening edge, waiting for it to start, and then closing edge. Firefox then has internet connectivity again and will work perfectly fine for another few minutes, before having to do it again.

I really have no idea why this is happening, and especially why it is fixed by opening and closing another browser. Obviously this is caused by some administrative program on the computer, but by the way that I can temporarily fix it, I would assume that there is a more permanent solution. The admin programs on the computer are GlobalProtect (VPN), Sophos Endpoint Agent (Security), and Teamviewer (probably not relevant).

As this is for a student, doing something that is against the school rules, it is absolutely necessary that this gets fixed as soon as possible. I simply cannot live with these default browsers with ads. /s

Thanks for the help

I turned off the translator popup via about:config and browser.translations.automaticallyPopup to false. Now translation is gone. How can I keep the option to quickly translate a page in the address bar without having the popup jump in my face each time I open a new tab, forcing me to click it to make it go away? This would be a nice option but an extremely distracting presentation. thanks.

Suggestion from Browsing History should not include "Base URL"

Hi all Firefoxers,

There are a few sites that I always access via a URL that could look like :

https://device.domain.com/admin/

When I went to visit that device, typing in the URL bar "device.domain..." , Firefox's 1st default suggestion shows as https://device.domain.com/

The problem is that I never visited that site, the way to access this device is https://device.domain.com/admin/ - there's no way to reconfigure the device and have an auto-redirect to .../admin location.

https://device.domain.com/ is not in my Browsing History nor do I have an open-tab. In the settings Privacy->Address Bar, disabling "Browsing History" removes https://device.domain.com/ from the suggestion list but it also removes all suggestion from the history. This is the expected behavior, the bug required fix isn't related to this.

If the "Base URL" isn't saved in the Browsing History, how can someone tell Firefox to only suggest absolute entries from the history?

In my settings, "Open previous windows and tabs" is not selected. And "Homepage and new windows" set to custom url.

However sometimes when I open Firefox, it's automatically restoring the previous session. I can't consistently reproduce the issue but it randomly happens after I just close the Firefox and then open it sometime later.

I think you need a place where users can easily report errors. I frequently find Firefox doesn't work with some sites, or stops working where it has worked before, especially where some login or click button is required. Have a look at this site, New Zealand government register for charities: https://register.charities.govt.nz/CharitiesRegister/ViewCharity?accountId=1ebd3717-79f0-e911-ba6c-00155d6b7730&searchId=6827e00b-e624-4fe4-ad80-8ccb4645ead2 I have to use a different browser now to access this site, which I frequently need for work.

Hi, I have a problem starting yesterday. When I video chat with anyone using Firefox on FB messenger they can see me but I cannot see them. Only a black screen where they should be showing. I have tried everything from uninstalling to different settings. I have made sure also that permissions were set correctly. Also it has been giving the error "slowing page down" or what says. Nothing helps. Now if I use Edge or phone it works just fine and we can see each other. This has never happened before. Also, the messenger games wont work on firefox either, but will on others. Please help if possible or tell me how.

Thank you

Hi,

I tried to visit the following pages in Firefox 121 (running under Arch Linux) and they took minutes to load. They loaded in a fraction of a second in Chromium. Anyone have any idea what is wrong?

The blogger page is here: https://u-blox-ninaw-platformio.blogspot.com/2022/03/u-blox-nina-w-e-platformio-arduino.html

Here are a few forums that take minutes to load, I think they use the same engine as I see the same colorful loading animation: https://community.platformio.org/t/error-please-specify-upload-port/26218 https://forum.manjaro.org/

Does anyone have any idea what is happening or what I should do to alert the development team? Are these sites using technology not implemented in Firefox?

Best Regards,

Kevin

Hi, I just upgraded to W11 yesterday and having a weird issue with firefox. I have "combined task bar buttons and hide labels" set to NEVER yet firefox has a weird issue that no other open program has. I have firefox pinned to my taskbar (image 1.) When I click it (image 2) it's supposed to expand into a full size tab but it stays as just an icon.

But when I right click and open taskbar settings, firefox remembers that I have combine task bar set to off and correctly expands into a full tab (image 3.) I'm not sure if this is a firefox issue or a general windows issue. Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

Firefox changed the design on tabs and other features some time back. The whole user experience has been worse since the UX design was changed. For example, it's impossible to find out without going through tab after tab, which one is active and playing. I wish there was an option to reverse back to the old design.

Hi, it has occurred to me that I lose the browsing history of tabs that were open for a long time. By browsing history i mean the sites that show up in "Go back one page" arrow. The issue is that after a website has been open for some time (this seems to be in range of days, perhaps weeks) the browsing history of that tab is forgotten and the Go back one page arrow goes blank. I would like to be able to keep this history for eternity, is there any way to enable that?

To be clear, I use the feature to save tabs of my previous sessions and also the Simple Tab Groups extension.

Thanks in advance, Alex
