Sorry if this isn't a Firefox fault or anything, but I'm lost for want of an answer.

I browse both Reddit and Imgur extensively (perchance excessively!) and in Reddit, many posts add a link to either gfycat.com or to Imgur to display a picture or video. Normally when the post adds a link to Imgur (and I click on it) a new tab opens on my browser for Imgur and for the video. However, today when I do that Imgur opens up a second Firefox browser meaning that were I to browse and click all evening (as I sometimes do) I could end up with perhaps 30 or more Firefox browsers open.

Please could someone tell me (or suggest) what's happened and also offer a possible cure. Of course, this could be a Reddit error but I'm starting my search here for lack of a better idea! Thanks

FireFox 79.0 logout problems from website rdc.nl. Usermenu is not shown anymore when logoutbutton is pushed

Good morning all I am new in this house. Guido van Wijk, application engineer at RDC in Amsterdam (rdc.nl). We host large internet applications for the automotive industry in the Netherlands. Java based. 8.000 users. In this web-applications html, exit buttons are built-in to return to user-menu's where our customer (automotive company's such as car-dealers) can make an new choice to enter a new application. These exit-buttons perform wel under FireFox 78.x. The men is shown. Since the Firefox 79.0 update these buttons do not function anymore. Either the application-screen stays untouched (as the menu should be shown) or a full white screen is shown. Whic is also wrong. I have tested with an older Ffox 78.0 version on another PC and then everything works fine. What's going on here. I am not an software engineer.

The images show an example of 1 of our web-apps, OKR with the uitlogbutton, logout. And the usermenu which should be shown then. This works Ok with Ffox 78, not anymore with 79.0

Hello, I use FF for our ticket system at work and I am not really a user of keyboard shortcuts. For me it is more a disadvantage, because while typing in the ticket system the CTRL-A, CTRL-N and so forths bindings are doing nonsense. This sometimes happens if I press CTRL and not SHIFT. So, all in all, it is me to blame and not FF. But if FF ignores my miskate, it is a big improvement in my daily work.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Björn

Hey guys, I'm having some issues when using Firefox with a 4K monitor.

Whenever I resize the window to 768px using either the Inspector or a website page builder like Elementor (as an example), it actually resizes the window to 767.833px.

This causes a lot of websites to break, as most have styling for (max-width: 767px) and (min-width: 768px).

This has existed for months now, and doesn't happen on Chrome. In Chrome, 768px shows as 768px.

Any ideas on why this is happening, or how to fix it?


Thanks!

Hello,

A few days ago I reinstalled win10. I backed up my firefox profile to keep all the data I had. After reinstall everything works except youtube. I can log in as usual, I can access my youtube settings, subscriptions etc. but I can not post comments, subscribe/unsubscribe to a channel or get notifications. When I try to subscribe/unsubscribe youtube gives the error "your session has expired, please login" and when I press the login button in the window it forwards me directly to the homepage of the channel I was trying to subscribe.

What I have tried: Delete cookies and data: nothing Uninstall firefox completely and delete all the data in user appdata folders and reinstall clean with a new profie: nothing

Any ideas? The same youtube account works perfectly on Chrome. I can post, subscribe, and get notifications.

This has become very frustrating since I use firefox since 2007 and I do not want to switch to another browser.

Thanks in advance.

Single URL sites are redirecting to Google Search

I use Firefox for my office, and there are several URLs internal to my company that work with a single word.

For example: "xyz/12345" is the same as "http://xyz.company.com/12345" which opens the resource 12345.

This used to work absolutely fine until the latest update.

Current: 78.0.1 (64-bit) on MAC OS 10.15.5

Now, xyz/12345 searches google instead of navigating to the website. I do still need google search on the browser bar, as I use it frequently as well.

Having to type out http://xyz/12345 is an overhead that I would like to avoid.

Please suggest if there are any workarounds that could be used to get this working again.

Right now as a developer I have an option to check is Flash plugin installed/enabled in the Firefox. But it should also be Allowed on a website in order to work. And this Allowed state we can't track. Do we have an option to do that? Maybe some hidden property of Window.navigator I couldn't find? Thanks in advance for the answer!

Our computer did an automatic Mozilla update a few days and now the hyperlinks within emails in Outlook will not open in Firefox - an error message comes up saying Application not found.

We have repeatedly updated default programs in Outlook, Firefox and Microsoft Control Panel default applications - they keep reverting to Unknown Application upon restart.

We had a problem with pdf's not opening at all after the update as well and similar problem with it reverting after restart, however have fixed that (we think) through Adobe's settings.

Any idea what else we can try re hyperlinks?

Thanks

Hello,

Starting yesterday, when I try to go to google.com in the firefox browser, I am redirected to a url for Google that is in the following format: https://www.google.com/#spf=************* [asterisks represent a string of 13 numbers]. I dont get this when I use other browsers to go to google.com. i have run updates and cleared cache and cookies all to no avail. I also have run all updates on firefox and google apps.

Anyone else experiencing this? Any idea why all of a sudden I am seeing the spf snippet added to the google.com url? Any idea how to fix the matter? And perhaps it is a benign issue, but I wanted to learn more so I can know whether or not to pay it any mind. Thanks!
