Does FF have any role in logging me out of a website due to some time limit? I complained to a site that I lost a lot of typing because it had silently logged me out. I was told by one of their CS people "The issue is actually with your browser. Browsers have a security feature that automatically logs you out of secure areas if you are not moving around, which unfortunately excludes typing. The idea is if you were logged into your online bank account and left your computer, someone else could not sit down 5 minutes later and start doing things in your account. This feature is for any secured area, any area you have to login to access. It is not something we do or can prevent. I am very sorry for the inconvenience."

IMHO this is BS, but please tell me if FF could have terminated my session somehow. Thanks. GD

Clicking "Enable" in the "Manage Your Themes" area seems to do nothing. I've tried clicking both buttons in the screenshot shown below and nothing happens at all. If I click the theme itself it takes me to another screen where the "Enable" button is also broken.

What could be causing this?  How can I change to Dark theme?

I would like to search the bugzilla database for known issues.

While there is a builtin search tool, that does not work: if I search for a string and limit the search to one specific bug where I know it contains the string, then that bug is reported. Doing the same search over all bugs, it (takes long and then) reports that no bug at all contains the string - not even the one where I know it contains the string.

So this search tool is proven defective and cannot be used. What alternatives are there?

Hello,

It is suspected that latest version of Firefox version 78.11.0esr (64-bit) is causing operathing systems to crash. I have not seen it on Windows platform as I am not using it. Platforms I am using are OSX and XUbuntu. The error occurs lingering on a site for a very long time. First it starts getting screen graphic errors like, some pixels are not being updated correctly. Then after a while screen starts to flicker, in a massive state, like the graphic processor is broken. In some cases with command key strokes one is able to kill Firefox, screen is back to normal and one can continue working. Facebook is the site that most commonly is causing error, but there are also other sites.

I have just installed 91.1 ESR. On opening the first time I am offered to "Choose a theme" or "Not now". I chose Not now.

I expected that I would then be able to go into the settings menu somewhere and find the options:

  • Streamlined Toolbar and menus
  • Modern tabs
  • Fresh icons and clearer messages

I do not find these under Settings nor under the installed Themes. I'm not even sure these are a Theme as much of a Style??

Any help on this is appreciated. Searching the title was of no help.

We are running FF ESR 78.14.0. I see that ESR 91.1 is now out. I have seen this article on Firefox ESR release cycle, but not able to find out what the schedule is (ie overlap) for 78 and 91 releases. I am trying to do some upgrade planning. I expect 91.2 will auto upgrade and like to know how soon, otherwise I may need to manual update machines.

It would be nice if this page could be kept up to date for the relevant releases.

Driving the question is a specific issue with QuickBooks Payments not working in 78, which I am assuming has to do with something they consider obsolete security wise.

Hi there, I'd like to make a feature request. One of the things that I love about Google Chrome is the ability to run single window apps. This is the only feature keeping me from moving to Firefox at this point. I'd like to request that this be added as a feature in Firefox. The command could be something like:

firefox --app=https://mail.provider.com

This would spawn a single app window that does not have tabs to navigate to other apps.

Thanks!

I have Firefox version 78, as my MacBook Pro is 11 years old. After the last automatic update, however, Pocket has disappeared from my tab. I did the following:

1. typed in about:config 2. accepted the risk 3. all areas are set to "true" 4. went to Firefox preferences and the to Firefox Home Content and add Pocket is no longer listed. (See snap shot)

I tried downloaded the latest version of Firefox, but my computer is too old to use it. Is there anything else I can do? I really enjoyed Pocket and its articles. Thank you.

Hey Mozilla, I just tried a little bit with wireshark and found these safebrowsing.googleapis.com calls. I was quite a bit shocked. Got everything done to get away from google services, build my complete online infrastructure upon mozillas suites, mailadresses on relay, and generally FOSS Apps and Software.

I have some questions: - for what specific reason firefox is making the calls? - which data will be transmitted? - how can I block this "feature" entirely in Firefox?

Any answers from the developing team would be highly appreciated!

-- ...and lbnl my opinion: Firefox is/was the Alternative to google to me. So the reason I am using it, is to fight against google and the capitalism conquoring the internet. My thinking is therefore quite a bit black and white. I'm really considering to use another browser because of this hidden google Calls. I mean, even if its only to update the blacklists of URLs, there is absolutely no need to make this Calls in idle state, while the user isn't doing anything. And now I'm thinking what you guys are might calling for hosts in other apps? I mean this is shit. To advertise against occupying the internet in the fight for taking back control, and then you collaborate with the enemy. Maybe I'm completely wrong, but this feels more disturbing than anything else these days.

And if you share my IP on a regular basis with a google host, could YOU be sure, that these requests will not be registered and merged with other meta about myself? When Firefox is sending my IP to this google-Host, right before I was checking a page wich is using recaptchas, it could might be an very easy task to match this both IPs and further combine it with the rest of my metadata. Logically there is no reason for google to separate "the collection of data" and assumingly they are already using this massive amount of IP-Connectiondata in some way.

PS: here you have the answer to the question, if this service is cross-product: "Safe Browsing protections work across Google products and power safer browsing experiences across the Internet." - the Head says: "Keeping over four Billion Devices safer. *shiver*
