I am writing a WebExtension to communicate with a server using XMLHttpRequest.

I load this WebExtension temporarily by about:debugging. It works well if I do not login into my Firefox account. It can get data from the server.

But after logining into my account, it returns "xmlhttp.status: 0" immediately when I trying to do the same thing.

I removed all other add-ons and WebExtensions, But still I have this problem.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I was changing my language setting in Firefox (only) from English (US) to English (UK)(the only other option was English-Canada) as I am in Australia and we use the United Kingdom spelling anyway. Within Firefox itself (not emails or off site pages) it STILL insists that COLOUR is spelt wrong & it allows me to spell NITE (not day) incorrectly. i have an Oxford dictionary in front of me & can reference a WEBSTERS all day long. There are many, many countries that have English as their primary language, Ghana is one & some South Pacific Islands (now the French have buggered off) The Seychelles off Africa have English as their official language & you can bet 'they' would have odd spellings. So no English (Australian) that's why the word Galah doesn't even get a look in. A Galah, by the way, is a VERY common Australian bird & in anyone's language. I'm guessing there is NO American word for Cockatoo too. I will have to look that up in my Funk & Wagnalls. Funk & Wagnalls was an American publisher known for its reference works, including A Standard Dictionary of the English Language, and the Funk & Wagnalls Standard (reference Wikipedia). Well, well, not only Webster trying ton undermine (Bastardize) (its actually S not a Z) standard English but Fucken Wagnall was in on it too!

Anneeeway just a heads up. using Firefox Browser (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Ultimate (Service Pack 1) I guess support for Win7 will be gone soon anyway Microsoft will see to that.

Looking for a suitable LINUX replacement. Thanks, bye.

My MacBook Air is alerting a Trojan spyware alert with an error code in my Firefox browser. I ran malwarebytes and it did not detect any issues. I also opened safari and that ran without an error message so apple tech said to contact Firefox for support. Should I just delete and re-install Firefox or is this a more compromising issue?

Using latest updated Windows 10 and latest updated Firefox 92.0, when I open up Google Maps and click on "Show your Location" button it shunts me off to the middle of Chicago, rather than downtown Menlo Park, CA.

I double checked whether my WIndows Settings were set to allow location, and it was still set to "On." I also tried using Chrome and there, everything worked as expected. I also tried Microsoft Edge, and there it was broken as well.

So, the problem could be with Windows or Firefox apparently...Not sure how to fix or at least work around the problem.

Over the last few days whenever I watch Youtube videos (specifically on Youtube, this happens on no other sites such as Netflix, Disney+, Twitch, etc.) the video will freeze for a good few seconds, but the audio will still play and then the video will jump to wherever it got up to in the time it was frozen.

I'm not really sure how to fix this, I've tried clearing the cache etc. but the issue still persists. I even tried turning off uBlock Origin but that didn't fix it either.

Has anyone ever had a similar issue and found a fix? It's pretty annoying.

I just reinstalled Firefox. There was a "search with amazon.ca" at the bottom of the options when I clicked on the search toolbar. (This was not a suggested search engine on the bottom row, with the other search engines -- it was popping up with the list of websites I visit.)

I deleted Amazon.ca from the list of suggested search engines and now instead of "search with Amazon.ca" it simply shows "Amazon.ca Low prices fast shipping" in its place and I can't seem to get rid of this. And I want this gone for a number of reasons, the least of which is that it takes me to Amazon.com where I don't even have an account.

I am running Red Hat Linux Workstation with Gnome3. In Firefox i have an issue with watching video streaming and videos in general (Youtube, Webex, Company's livestream events). Video starts normally and after some time (up to 1 minute) - video just stops but audio continues. I already refreshed Firefox, did a cleanup of cookies but nothing changed. I also tried to disable hardware acceleration, also nothing changes. I tried different browser and it works perfectly in Chrome. Really want to have my Firefox to be only one browser I use so i would like to fix it.

After change the network connection to cable, or to a different Wi-Fi network, Firefox will lose connection and will be unable to access any website unless its is restated, closing all Firefox windows.

The problem happens when:

1. I have the Firefox opened, I disconnect from wife A, Firefox lost connection, then I connect to Wi-Fi B, all other browsers can connect, but Firefox does not. (if Wi-Fi A and B are from different router)

2. A start the computer disconnected, I open the Firefox, I connect to internet, any other browser that was previously opened can connect, but Firefox does not.

OS: openSUSE Tumbleweed 20210912 Firefox version (91.0.2. It occurs in the last two years, it is so annoying)
