I really love firefox, but since the recent update that came with a cool multi-colour theme, websockets have been having issues on my browser. I'm a developer, and currently building a site that's very much based on this websockets protocol. The issue is, when transmitting a huge chunk of data (e.g large json of google auth details), firefox tends to send a corrupted payload which the server cannot decode. This issue doesn't appear in Chrome for some reason.

I try to like firefox and once upon a time I did like it. Now it seems it spends more time trying to prottect me and annoy me than anything else. Either images don't load, or if I'm on my laptop it won't let me access mic and video for a conference call. The thing is, I have AVG I have ad blocker I know my way around them and yet FF keeps getting in my way I turn those app and extension off/on and I'm just ANNOYED. Finally I just uninstall the mothersucker. I don't even know I have a question.....Oh yes, I want a clean simple fast browser that doesnt infantilize me or make me wear a helmet if I don't want to. I'm not a new user by any means, but this browser just bugs the shit out of me. Upshot I've gone back to Chrome as my default browser.

When I do front-end development, the framework I used is antd pro(Based on React). After the webpack packing the project, the developing page will be automatically reloaded(May be called HMR, Hot Module Replacement). But after the page reloaded, the CSS of the page is not rendered, It also need refresh the page by F5. Thus, HMR does not work correctly on Firefox, but it can work on other browsers like Edge, Chrome

Hello, I wonder why Firefox is deleting all my cookies same time without my permission after a while (apprx. 6-8 months)?

- Private Browsing is disabled. I never need this option, so it's turned off all the time - "Clear history when Firefox closes" option is unchecked

Опечатка в тексте на странице входа в POCKET: "Выши предпочтения в файлах cookie Мы используем файлы cookie, чтобы запомнить настройки вашего аккаунта, для показа рекламы на страницах Pocket Discover и для аналитики. Если вы принимаете эти рекламные файлы cookie, ваша реклама будет более персонализированной на Pocket других веб-сайтах."

В русском языке нет слова "Выши", надо написать слово "Ваши". Кто может исправить опечатку? Сайт POCKET принимает мои письма за спам!!! Мне надоело.

Ответ мне не обязателен, хотя и будет интересно узнать, как удалось победить разработчика-создателя ошибки. Мне надо, чтобы к русскому языку относились с должным уважением и не коверкали слова. Ведь в современных редакторах текста так просто исправить и более сложные ситуации!!!

The article explaining a particular add-on seems to say a Firefox add-on will chose what file to put a new bookmark in, and/or rearrange bookmarks. This seems to say that rather than allowing you to make a choice. It will even rearrange the current folders or content. Am I misinterpreting? Thanks!

Plus (+) Key not working as shortcut

Hi,

I have noticed that if I want to use the +key (plus key) as a shortcut, the following commands don't work:

I'm using the latest Firefox version (91.5.0esr/64-bit) on a MacBook Pro 2021 14" (Mac OS 12.1) on a German keyboard. The German part is important, because if I switch my system language to English and correctly guess where the +key would be positioned, the commands work.

Most importantly, this only happens on Firefox. If I use the same commands on Safari, or Google Chrome, it works perfectly fine. So this must be a Firefox issue.

I would really appreciate it if there was a solution for this. I know this has been an issue for a longer time because I had the same problem on my last MacBook Pro (13", 2011, High Sierra).

Last but not least Firefox is great, and it is by far my favorite browser. So if there is any solution for this I would be most grateful (and if the solution somehow could be automatically included in all future Firefox updates even better!)

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards, M

PS: I apologize if this was worded awkwardly. English is not my first language.

I am having issues with opening link for external applications. The application can be What'sApp or Zoom or Slack and when trying to open an external app I get a windows that ask for me to select the application to open the link.. When doing this the only option have I have is System Handler and Choose Application.. Neither option is helpful.. This did not happen with firefox packaged with .deb .. I am assuming that this deal with snap sandbox security.. I later read an article

I did a little reading and came across a link https://ubuntu.com/blog/how-to-snap-introducing-classic-confinement

Which instructed on how to create a snap with --classic confinement.. I am not sure if this will resolve the issue that I am having .. But I didn't find that I could install firefox snap with the --classic option.. I am not that familiar with snaps so I could be completely off but wanted to know if someone could look into it..

I would like to add an image but it doesn't seem like firefox will allow me to on this page. (Browse is not opening a window) Also copy and paste didn't work

I am on Windows 10, Thunderbird Version 91.5.0 64 BIT

I have looked in the various threads that cover this particular issue, Most of the addons are not compatible with my version.

after looking around, I stumbled on some changes to the userChrome.css file that should work.

The first part of the css file, changes backwound colors. This works

the part is not working is what I assume will change the font and its size.

I would appreciate any help...

#folderTree,

  1. threadTree

 background-color: lightgrey !important;
 color: black !important;

/* Folder Pane font */

  1. folderTree > treechildren {

Okay, so let's say I open a tab, browse, and leave Firefox for a while. It probably goes into sleep mode or whatever. When I come back, it hangs while trying to load whatever the foremost tab was, and if I try to put something new into the omnibar (a search or a URL, doesn't matter), it just shows a blank page and fails to load.

Sometimes I select other tabs and they do the same thing. The only surefire way to avoid this is to open a completely new tab.

It sounds like a small thing but it really slows down my "hold on lemme Google this" moments and is really annoying. Anyone recognize this issue and know why it happens?

Note, it seems particularly consistent with duckduckgo, but affects other sites too.

Hi there! For the past 3 days, my browser has started to show in some websites a weird red window (kinda reminds me of the youtube logo with inverted colors!). I've already tried 4 antiviruses, 3 antimalware, and I've tried reinstalling the browser cleanly but the issue keeps happening. The other browsers (Chrome, Opera, Edge) are working just fine. The issue happens only on some websites and not at all of them. What should I do now? Thank you!
