Hello there. Ever since the latest update (to 115.0.2), I've been experiences random crashes. It's only happening with these 2 sites: https://www.mapsofworld.com/ and https://www.buongiorno.sk/ (there may be more but I haven't discovered any others as of yet). I open the sites and FF immediately shuts down. And then, after I restart it, there are no crashes listed in the logs (about:crashes). I've tried everything. Cookies, cache, a "refresh", a fresh install and I've also checked my system and HDD for errors but nothing helped. Any idea what I should do? The problem seems to be on your side, not mine

I was told to post this here so someone could look into it. I use the Dark Reader Addon, which seems to be the only dark mode add-on for Firefox, but lately it is causing issues with simple scripts on websites, namely the "read more" button on pretty much every news article. The button is just completely unresponsive unless I disable Dark Reader. Very frustrating as bright white backgrounds strain the eyes and dark mode really helps.

I posted a review directly on the Dark Reader Addon page as well.

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S22 running Android 13.

It would be nice if dark mode capabilities were standardized and built into the app/websites instead of needing special workarounds like add-ons.

Before this Firefox update I had an add-on or extension or something where you could click on it and it would close all tabs, but save the links in another tab, by date. Unfortunately I don't remember what it was called.

Thought maybe 'pin' something, but that's basically unsearchable as there is something else called pins.

It was great, cause you could simply go to the tab and see all of the saved links, by date. It opened up every time Firefox started and I never had an issue. Saved HUNDREDS of links and now it's just gone! No history of it existing. How do I get it back??? This is terrible. Tons of work stuff saved there.

-Yes, I understand bookmarks and have plenty of those and they are still there. -Not related to Pinterest, just think it was called Pinned or Pin Something.

TIA!

Hi all,

I’m trying to make aware people of the recent Google movements to close gate the internet to their services and I suggest to folks to move to Firefox.

One of my colleagues encounters a problem clearly visible on the image attached (it shows correctly on my mac).

It's not as bad on my mac, where I only have issues every now and then - I received an email this morning on my work email, and all the apostrophes were replaced with Registered symbol (R in a circle).

I noticed that not allowing websites to use their own fonts fixes the issue (unticking "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above") but I would like to be able to view sites the way the developers intented rather than forcing my browsers default fonts.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

I recently switched over to Firefox as my main browser in place of Chrome. What really won me over was the Primary Password feature, so that my saved passwords will be safe. But I'm a little confused: When I open Firefox, the dialog box comes up asking me for my Primary Password. As soon as I type the first two characters of my password, the browser is totally unlocked. I can either type in the rest of my password at that point and press Enter, or I can just press the Cancel button. Either way it only needs the first two characters of my password to unlock Firefox. That doesn't seem very secure. Is there any way to set it to require my entire password?

FF 115.02 Win11

I fill in many repeated responses, such as DOB, zip code, etc. I was using Edge for a while and have forgotten the benefits of FF. Does it remember? Can I edit or delete the ones that are no longer relevant or have changed - age, for instance?

Thank you.

Facebook Crashes Firefox and Shuts Down the Network.

When on Facebook, Firefox will shut down the network connection so that it can't communicate anymore, no incoming or outgoing traffic through Firefox. I opened TaskManager to try to kill the process, but it leaves a single Firefox.exe process running and it CAN'T be killed. I've tried everything I can think of. In an admin command window, normally Tasklist to check for the process and then Taskkill /IM firefox.exe would work. It comes back with process not found, even though it's in the Tasklist and still running in the taskmanager list.

When trying to kill Firefox, it always says "Firefox is currently running" with the option of close Firefox or cancel. If you select close Firefox, the window just comes up again with the same question while leave Firefox.exe still running in the taskmanager. If you select cancel, the windows goes away and the Firefox.exe process stays running in taskmanager.

So I used Sandboxie (sandbox program) to open another Firefox window to continue, which works fine for a while until Firefox decides to shut down the network connection again. I even tried logging off the user account and logging into a different user account, Firefox is still there, running and still can't be shut down. It's like a bad case of Herpes or Chlamydia or something. Then all I can do is shut down and restart the entire machine.

So to reiterate, Firefox cannot be shut down and removed from the taskmanager process list using the typical right upper corner "Red X" kill, or by way of taskmanager "end process" or "end process tree" and cannot be shut down by an admin command window Taskkill command or logging off and switching users.

I don't know if the "autoscroll issue" is an inherent attached problem or separate, but I have that one as well. I'll be looking at asomething and Firefox with a mind of its own will scroll down maybe 2 to 10 threads, sometimes stop, sometimes continue scrolling all on its own. It's annoying as hell. I will try the layout.css "false" fix and see if that works.

Both these issues only occur on my cheezy 3rd gen motherboard/computer, so the specs for cheezyness...

I do not want her obituary page made public on a forum in case it causes inappropriate comments.

I have just discovered the page works ok on Chrome so I will use that for now, but I am reporting the problem to try and help you. I am using latest version of Firefox.

I have added a screen snip of the part-loaded page.

I just followed the button below about extra troubleshooting information and lost all the information I had typed into this box, which irritates me as well.

Have a look please and let me know, thanks.

I am visiting mymother who likes to eat in a local supermarket where they have a cafe. I paid for our meal using cash and I did not use the in store wifi and did not interact with any in store services.

I get back to my mothers apartment and open firefox to do some browsing, the first thing I see is a sponsored ad for the supermarket I have just been in.

So two questions, I understand that my phone number can become visible if I interact with a local service. But no interaction took place but they still worked out who I am and where I was. How was this done?

Secondly some financial interaction has presumably taken place between firefox and whoever controls the advertising for the supermarket. So they put out some kind of call to say "this guy has just been in our supermarket and we want to hit him with some linked content" and firefox have put up there hand and said "yep we got him right here, you pay us x and we will stick a link on his opening page"

So how does that work with firefox? so they say thay are a privacy web brower but they appear to have just sold me off to a supermarket?

Over the last 3 days, I've been unable to turn off the safe search option using Google as the search engine.

I get a message saying Safe search is locked.

This applies whether I'm signed in to Google or not, but doesn't occur in the chrome app for android.

I tried clearing cache, cookies & data etc to no avail.

So I completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox yesterday which worked fine, however I've noticed the locked safe search filter is back on today.

Any thoughts?

Starting Firefox triggers Memeo backup and Trusteer to run and bog down cpu

Hello, While not on every occurrence of starting Firefox, too many times Firefox won't bring up its home page (Google) because two applications running in the background (Memeo Premium Backup and Trusteer Rapport) start to run at the same time and contribute at least 70% of the CPU load, with Firefox accounts for another 20%.

I imagined that Google is flooding Firefox with a lot of files that Memeo begins tabulating for transfer in anticipation of its external backup drive being eventually switched on.

So I decided to tell Memeo to specifically exclude two system folders which might be storing temporary files when Firefox is active.

C:\Users\**\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox C:\Users\**\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox

Doing this did not improve things, as Memeo and Trusteer occasionally turn on as Firefox is starting up.

Does anyone know of any other folders which could be potential locations for temporary data that Memeo may feel obligated to interact with.

Thanks

Hello! This is not really a question ... more a comment. This morning when I opened my WIN 7 HOME tower PC, and opened FIREFOX, I saw the notice that this latest release is the latest for WIN 7. That's fine, but I wish to tell you something about WIN 7 PRO & MICROSOFT. Evidently, there is some major user of WIN 7 PRO who has demanded that MICROSOFT continue to support this version. I have two H-P laptops, which I use for Ladder programming. Both are loaded with WIN 7 PRO, and both receive periodic updates from MICROSOFT. So, it would seem that ALL support for these older releases of Windows has not ended. I am in the process of moving all my files & applications from this WIN 7 HOME PC to my WIN 10 tower PC. THANK YOU. robert herold [removed emails from public]

P.S. Had no problem porting the FIREFOX data to the 10, but had a lot of problems doing the same for THUNDERBIRD on this PC to the 10, despite getting assistance from your tech people.
