Hi, Recently purchased new laptop with Win 11. I was having trouble downloading anything. Always indicated failure.

I checked some of the responses here for that problem. One of them said to not accept HTTPS only. When I checked my settings, it WAS already set to Don't enable HTTPS-Only Mode. I then set the HTTPS-Only mode to Only in private windows. That setting now allows downloads. Why doesn't it allow downloads when I don't accept HTTPS only?

Hi,

I am using the Firefox Multi-Account Containers addon with Firefox 116.0.2 (on apple silicon). I use the containers to isolate sessions from different websites. I have a container for my Instagram session. However, when I open a private browsing window and go to instagram, I find that I am already logged in. I thought private browsing windows were completely new and blank.

How is it possible that my instagram session is available in private browsing?

Thanks in advance

While Firefox is loading long, list-type pages, the scrollbar naturally expands in length. I was used to grabbing the scrollbar thumb, pulling it to the bottom (out of browser focus,) triggering further page-loading, and being able to repeat this by merely jiggling the mouse after each load.

Since the latest release (116.0.?), my mouse loses focus on the thumb on each reload, and I have to re-click on the thumb in order to drag down to force the next reload.

This has radically slowed down some of my regular web activities.

Is it something that can be (re)configured on my end?

my Other Bookmarks is no longer in my bookmarks toolbar. I have two laptops and the other one is perfect. I tried sycing many times, I did a restore (which I shouldn't have) but nothing makes them reappear. While I can access these bookmarks from the menu bar, I want to see it in my bookmarks toolbar. It did not fall off into my customized overflow either. Whaaaatttt is going on? I need to put it back asap without spending hours trying to make this simple thing happen. Also, why did it disappear? And why won't a sync bring it back?

Is there any way to limit the storage space in cache2 taken by a particular extension? The Ghostery extension has nearly a gigabyte of storage taken up there on my system and shows no signs of slowing down.

I already have an overall limit on firefox's cache storage allowance. The problem is it's being monopolized by this extension.

duplicate of /questions/1420552 thread

Hi Firefox...I am unable to sign in to this website in the traditional way. When I attempt entry I get the following message. "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at secure.adultfriendfinder.com.

If you entered the right address, you can:

   Try again later
   Check your network connection
   Check that Firefox has permission to access the web (you might be connected but behind a firewall)".

This is the ONLY site, that I have where I encounter this issue. Technical people say that it is not on their end.

I can go to my neighbors computer and immediately gain access.

I have turned off NORD VPN...no success I have turned off Pi Hole...no success I have change search engines...no success...I use DDG on all sites...using Google or Yahoo search engines did not effect the outcome. I have refreshed FF...no success I have deleted and re-installed DDG ad on...no success I have included a screen shot of what I get when denied access.

The only way to gain entrance is to go to the "FORGOT PASSWORD" tab and put in a new password.

The irony of that is, even if I change the PW, and allowed entrance when I log out and want to re-enter I have to change the PW again

Please help me some resolve to this issue...thanks doug

Running Windows 11 on a Dell XPS 8930. Internet download speed is 100Mb/sec. With every update of Firefox it seems to take longer and longer to launch Firefox and load open windows and tabs. Several minutes of the back and forth ball on each tab. I can launch Chrome and its windows and tabs load almost immediately. What can I do to improve Firefox performance, short of abandoning it?

Hi, I've been using Firefox for decades and been saving passwords in it without any second thoughts, thinking they were fully secure.

Today I had to install a Yandex Browser for my work for the first time in my life (on a new clean Windows 10). It also asked to "make changes on my device", and I rejected it. What happened next absolutely terrified me. It immediately grabbed all the tabs, the sessions and, most importantly, the years worth of passwords from my Firefox. Does it mean that they just lie there unprotected, and any random piece of code even without the administrative privileges can just take them? I'm pretty sure I didn't click anything related to legitimate data sync.

when I view a stock quote in Google Finance If I move my Windows cursor into the price chart and move the chart cursor to a new date or time the tab will hang. I can no longer move the chart cursor. Reloading the tab will no longer work. I have to delete the tab and then use History to reload it. There is no problem as long as I keep the Windows cursor out of the stock chart area.

I have several tabs with stock data from Google Finance open at the same time. For example. https://www.google.com/finance/quote/TSLA:NASDAQ https://www.google.com/finance/quote/AAPL:NASDAQ https://www.google.com/finance/quote/MSFT:NASDAQ

I am running Windows 11 up to date and Firefox 116.02. This has been a problem for a long time.

[SOLVED] Firefox account not syncing Gravatar photo

Hi,

On September 15, 2022 I created this thread here on Firefox Support Forum and now I finally have an answer to the question, but as we can see my thread was archived and I can't update anything, so I decided to create a new thread just to mark my previous question as solved and bring it an answer.

I contacted Mozilla Firefox developers and got a response: Firefox is no longer integrated with Gravatar. Considering this, I can tranquilly say there is no bug or problem with my account as I thought. It's a pity that Firefox no longer support Gravatar integration, and even if I use an old version I will face the same "issue" because the Gravatar integration was a online feature linked to the Firefox account*, not to the browser itself.

Info source: https://github.com/mozilla/fxa/issues/15665

- - -

Admins can now archive and close this thread, I only ask to keep it online to help who may need this information in the future. Thanks.

  • Actually I made a mistake when I wrote this, the Gravatar integration was an online feature linked to the Mozilla account, not Firefox. James explained the distinction on #4 post of the current thread.

Last edit: On January 31, 2023 I created this thread on r/firefox but no one answered precisely. This current thread here on Firefox Support Forum also solves what was asked on reddit. The thread created on January 31, 2023 and posted on r/firefox was archived as well, like what happened to my thread with the same theme here on Firefox Support Forum, then I also created a new thread on r/firefox to mark my question as solved.

Some of the scripts are not loading or working properly, like clicking boxes and notifications on some sites. Most recently this happened on the New Statesman website, I doubt they haven't optimized their site for Firefox. Previously I encountered this on Gerogetown University's Management System platform, which according to IT should be fine with Firefox. I removed all the extensions, cleared the cache and cookies, tried troubleshooting mode, even reinstalled Firefox to no avail. I accept all cookies. Settings are default. The issue is specific to Firefox, Edge works fine. Please help, I don't want to migrate back to Edge.
