First of all I don't know if i choose the correct topic.

My issue is that I like to help researchers by filling/doing their online quiz/forms/etc. They usually use this site for reflex test: https://pavlovia.org/ My problem is that you need to strike a key. Whenever I do that the f3 research box appears ... It's fun when you need to close it for a reflex test where seconds do matter. Is there a way to disable it ?

My PNC virtual wallet account will not allow secure log in from Firefox browser. PNC customer support stated this has happened to many customers using Firefox recently. I've contacted PNC Virtual wallet support and this information will be forwarded to their IT support team. Someone from their team is to contact me within 72 hours. I recently updated to Firefox/Mozilla version 93.0. But this was occurring prior to the update. Can you please help fix Firefox with it's better security features so I can use Firefox browser instead of Microsoft Edge?

Getting URL of latest version of an extension

Greetings,

I am a sysadmin working on an enterprise deployment of a Firefox extension, specifically this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/hr/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/

It's a password manager called BitWarden.

I am deploying the extension using the official Firefox ADMX templates, so far I configured most settings correctly. When I am deploying the extension to my users (I am using Microsoft Intune), I need to provide an URL from where the extension will be downloaded. I found that URL by copying the link from the 'Add to Firefox' button from the https://addons.mozilla.org/hr/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/ link.

I found the link to be: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/3843699

What I want to know is the following: 1. Will this link stay the same for all future BitWarden extension versions? 2. Is this something that changes when a new Bitwarden extension gets released or is this link static? 3. Is there perhaps a link which automatically redirects the download to the latest available version?

Some online guides say that a 'latest.xpi' string needs to be appended to the add-on's page (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/ in this case), but I found that not to work. If I go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/latest.xpi, it throws an "page not found" error.

Thank you in advance!

Best regards, Nemanja Simpraga

This probably seems like a silly gripe, but when copy-pasting text, say from a website into a Google Doc, I used to often paste it into the URL bar first, then copy it to paste into my Doc, because that was a quick easy way to remove formatting from the texts (hyperlinks, bold, etc.).

At some point relatively recently, this changed. Now when I paste a chunk of text into the URL bar and either cut or copy it from there, what I get when I paste it is just the URL of the page I'm on. The text I'd pasted into the URL bar might STILL BE THERE when I hit ctl+C and ctl+V but what gets pasted is the URL of the page that actually is nowhere to be seen. Is there a way around this or do I just have to take longer to remove formatting from pasted text now? Thank you for any info!

Firefox redirects my local virtual server website url to an external url

I am a web developer who makes websites on my local work station. I use XAMPP (Apache & PHP) on Windows. I edit my Windows hosts file to include server aliases like:

127.0.0.12 pierremarketinggroup

...and then I add a virtual server to the Apache httpd.conf file, so that when I type:

http://pierremarketinggroup/

...in my address bar, it will take me to the local website on my workstation hard drive.

This has been working for years on Firefox, but now, after upgrading to PHP 8 in XAMPP and some fiddling around, Firefox no longer respects the local domain, but instead will redirect me to

https://www.pierremarketinggroup.com

...which doesn't exist, yet.

Firefox does the same thing with all my local, virtual domains. Chrome, Edge, and other web browsers continue to work normally, so I know my Apache and Windows hosts settings are correct.

What I have tried: - Cleared content cache, restarted Firefox. Didn't fix the problem. - "Refresh" Firefox. I think this was a mistake, as I lost all my logins, but too late now. Even so, it didn't fix the problem. I type the local address into address bar, and Firefox doesn't read it, or doesn't look up the local domain, or I don't know what.

I used to be able to fix the problem by going to Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> check Cached Web Content -> Clear, and that would usually fix the problem. Now it doesn't fix the problem.

How do I force Firefox to look up the domain on my local machine, instead of redirecting me to an external (and usually unrelated) url?

A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

I created a *.json file and cannot find a way to open it to reinstate the bookmarks that I had in Firefox. I do not have bookmarks in other search engines, it seems the only help it for that type of problems. I read other help articles, I do not have the things that were advise from Application menu. I did not make any changes to this laptop either, I cannot understand why my bookmark had disappeared???!!! What I had was a windows soft reset, which did wipe the bookmarks. Today I had opened a couple of websites, and when I look for the bookmarks I am only shown these 5-6 bookmarks!!!! I had loads as crafts from You tube and others! Such an inconvenience!

The tab under Inspect Element -> Inspector -> The column right beneath filter styles column has this feature that suggests you some css properties. On my browser they get filled in more than once, endlessly I might say (without me pressing any button). This makes it very hard to add any css styles and I'd like to know how to stop this behaviour.
