I am suddenly getting the following error message: "We recommend you use a different browser or disable the “EasyList Cookie” filter from your “Content Filtering” settings (found under “Settings” -> “Shields” in the Brave Browser)." Firefox is now unusable. I have searched "Settings" and can find nothing about "Content Filtering," "Shields," or "Brave Browser." Can you tell me what is going on here?

There are questions about organizing the process of overseeing extensions.

It’s very strange when you see the “Recommended” extension, and at the same time you continue to see negative reviews, fresh ones. But another thing is offensive: the review submission form does not have feedback. I would like to receive a more detailed answer and user recommendations.

Let’s say a user writes that the design of the extension is not intuitive, that he lost information because of this extension and wasted a lot of time. And this is not consistent with the "Recommended" criteria. Causes dissonance.

Maybe it’s worth expanding the possibility of interactive interaction with reviews, with clients among themselves. Maybe it’s worth expanding the support base for these extensions? Link the application version to reviews to avoid misunderstandings?

I have firefox on both of my linux Ubuntu22.04 machines. As of yesterday, that little rounded arrow in the toolbar disappeared. I still have the forward and backward arrows and the home icon, but the refresh button is gone. It is still there on my other computer. Both have version 120.0.1 on them. Makes no sense to me.

I signed into Firefox on a lab computer that has too little storage space to install plugins (<1MB storage space left.)

Naturally, plugins did not install. I wanted to ensure that Firefox would not even attempt to install them in the future, so I set the browser not to sync add-ons.

I don't know whether what follows is because of that setting, or because I set it too late. In either case, my dozen or so plugins on my main computer have now all been uninstalled. I don't know the names of all the plugins I was using anymore.

1. Can I recover my automatically uninstalled plugins? 2. Can this bug be patched?

Bangirot says technical problems when I want to see my received bankgiro payments. Win10 with Firefox, I can't see payments on that machine for a month soon. I have reinstalled firefox now. Still same result. With Android phone and firefox it works, but without printer. With another browser on Win10 it works, but not with firefox. Swedbank internetbank or bankgirocentralen can't help me. They have not heard of such problems.

Internetbank works, but with their connection to bankgirot it says, tehnical problems. If I login to bankgirot directly, it says tehnical problems.

So far its only the combination with this machine and firefox that gives this result. I haven't tried with another machine yet.

I have used firefox very long time without any problems.

When I upload an image with Firefox, it typically shows a red tint. I've seen similar reports from decades ago so I disabled `gfx.color_management.mode` in `about:config`, but that didn't help, even after restarting the browser and the computer. I disabled a couple of related settings, but that also didn't help. What else could I try?

I can't find any way to group windows. Yes, "windows".

I have about three dozen windows open (yes, there are a lot of tabs in them), and not just at home. And it’s hard to quickly find your bearings when you need to switch to another task (workspace). It would be nice to at least change the color of the windows, depending on the type of work. But in the API API I don’t see the ability to define a window property where you can specify a group identifier, which can be used to restore the color after re-opening FireFox.

If FireFox had a built-in or its own reliable extension for organizing thematic work, a deferred workspace (without losing the contents of windows). Arc browser - they realized that what browsers have been denying for a decade is already overdue, and they will be able to take over the market.

I tried several extensions for saving, restoring and organizing workspaces, and came to a clear conclusion: only the built-in FireFox solution for restoring windows after a crash/opening is the only truly reliable solution. There is no trust in extensions that are not supervised by a good team of developers and testers; there is a guarantee that data will be lost in the near future.

It is possible that in recent years some expansions have been completed. I'd be glad to know about it if you point it out. But here a question arises on a separate topic: improving the mechanism for rating and testing extensions, recommended extensions program.

To problem with same thing. Address-bar work as search-engine I have poor eyesight and have enlarge the browser, and then I type in the search-bar, the the typing move to the little bar on the top, so I can not see what I have typed.

Another problem I have is when I will reach local-servers with Ip-number and the "address-bar" being a search-engine and I get a lot of hit on http;//10.0.0.1 and I cant reach the web-server.

Is it possible to fix that I get a real address-bar and a real enlarged search-bar?

I have had a really consistent experience on Firefox for Ubuntu (120.0 (64-bit)):

  • I open a google doc and choose "Download > PDF"
  • Google Docs pops the PDF open in a new tab. The location is my own file system, eg. `file:///home/amanda/Downloads/whatever.docx.pdf`
  • I use ctrl-s to save the PDF to a more suitable folder
  • Firefox starts spawning dialog boxes. The black border around the dialog box just grows for a while. I can't even tell if clicking "cancel" is actually doing anything because maybe it is closing the dialog and revealing the one below.
  • The only solution is to quit Firefox entirely.

It seems to also happen if I print from Google Docs or just use the finder to open a PDF directly in Firefox: using ctrl-s to save starts it spawning infinite "Save" dialogs.

Obviously, I can avoid this by using the OS file manager to move the PDF to a more suitable location but it would be really nice to not have to keep track of that.
