I have a dozen old embedded device modules (circa 2003) which can host a web page. When I access the device through my local intranet (192.168.0.xxx), the web page displays correctly. However, when the same page is accessed through my DNS service (xxx.gotdns.org:xxxx) over the web, the Firefox INSPECT:network tool indicates that the document is type:text and displays the HTML in a text format. The first line of the HTML document is :<!DOCTYPE html>.....

These devices are non-secure information-only devices, but at least Firefox allows for HTTP: exceptions.

However, I cannot understand why Firefox treats the same content differently depending on the path. Is there a way to force Firefox to actually look at the contents of the packet and treat it accordingly?

The latest Firefox centers the File Menu. This UI change is counter to every other application on my PC and is extremely undesirable. (Also, I note that when you try to customize the Toolbar, it suddenly left-aligns again.)

How do I left-align the File Menu again—so that it functions the same as every other application in Windows?

Any Safe ...As.. in my Firefox isn't working. Nor from right mouse click, nor from menu-file. Currently I'm with 108 under XFCE(Ubuntu). But the troubles was may be after 98. I've disabled all extensions - persist. I tried also Troubleshooting mode - still persist. I've tried reinstalling - persist. Where have to look? With Chromium I do not have such troubles. Thank you!

First time ever. Tested other browsers, sound works fine. Changed no settings when it suddenly went silent. Refreshed. Uninstalled/reinstalled. Nada/nothing. So to not feel as if I've lost my hearing, I won't be using Firefox until there's a fix on their end, already tried everything suggested in troubleshooting and refreshed. It's just not playing well with Win11.

I recently installed new pc with fresh Firefox Developer Edition. Then I transfered the profile folder from old pc to the new pc. All bookmarks, addons, etc is there. Just the XULRunner popup appears only on the new pc. I uninstalled firefox on the new pc again and reinstalled it with profile cleaning. After profile cleaning firefox got faster and addons got removed. But the XULRunner popup keeps appearing. When I go to taskscheduler and trigger the "Firefox Developer Edition Background Update CA9422711AE1A81C" again, the XULRunner popup appears. Removing this taskscheduler and Firefox keeps readding it and the XULRunner popup are back. Any idea how I can get rid of the XULRunner popup?

Suggestions for Firefox for Android

Since the built-in password manager is not good enough in terms of security and functionality, (and I don't think it will be good enough for the foreseeable future), it would actually be a good idea to build an app instead of the built-in one, or to choose a third party app as a partner as an official recommendation, and so forth.

I find the browser's ad-blocking features to be very unorganized, repetitive, and not easy to use. I wish you could build a comprehensive enough and personalized built-in pan-ad blocker.

And please allow the beta version's custom "add-ons collection" to be added to the official version

Anyway, there are many problems and many solutions, I hope Firefox will be better and better.

Thanks.

Firefox is suggesting usernames on multiple websites that I access regularly. However, I have the saved logins feature turned off in Firefox.

When I access Settings > Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords - it shows all of these options turned off.

When I access Settings > Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords > Saved Logins... - it indicates No Logins Found / No Synced Logins found.

I do have Firefox Sync turned on to sync between devices, but since it indicates "No Synced Logins" it doesn't appear this is coming from another device. I have checked multiple devices and found they all show "No Synced Logins"

Only happening in Firefox. I am not getting these suggested logins in Edge or Chrome.

Happening across all my Windows 10 and 11 devices that have Firefox sync enabled. 2 x Windows 11 Pro 22H2 (build 22621.819) 1 x Windows 10 Pro 22H2 (build 19045.2364)

Firefox 108.0 on all Windows devices, but it started before updating to 108.

I have not yet tried resetting Firefox - hoping to use that as a last resort.

Any suggestions on where else to look or what I should try?

I run a Windows laptop, version 8.1. Two days ago the monthly system rollup occurred followed by Firefox browser updates. The user comment section of the Foxnews website disappeared completely. I can still login and out but nothing appears for any article comments. I see the comments are still there when I open a Chrome browser on my Android phone so I know Fox didn't discontinue user commenting. I have looked at add-ons, ad blockers, etc but no success reactivating this feature.

Anyone else having this problem? If so, is there a known cause/solution? Thanks

Hi,

i have set my home page to blank. Recently i noticed, that when i start firefox and visit a site, my arrow history (i don't know what it's actually called; the linear browsing history you navigate using those arrows) has the blank page as first entry. I don't want that first entry. How can i get rid of it? (And why is it called "chrome://browser/content/blanktab.html"?) When i open a site in a new tab, i don't have that blank page entry in the arrow history. So it seems like it must be possible to get rid of it.

Same problem with private browsing. The first page is always "about:privatebrowsing".

I'm using Firefox version 108.0 on Linux Mint.

It's only a small annoyance, but i really appreciate being less annoyed.

Thanks

Hello,

since a few days I have a strange cursor, possibly related to the latest version. The problem only occurs in Firefox.

No matter where I click, in search histories, settings or on websites, the cursor that appears when you want to write something appears everywhere. So the flashing line, I just can't write anything.

How can I deactivate it? I have already asked in other forums, but no one has an answer.

I'm attaching a few screenshots below.
