Hi,

Is there a way to disable the little notification that pops up showing what url is being loaded or that pops up when you mouse over a link in the bottom left of the browser?

I'm using an OLED and am trying to disable as many re-current static objects as possible. In my 25 years of web browsing I've never found this to be a useful feature so I'd rather it be disabled.

I can't seem to find any settings pertaining to it and all the info I can find on disabling is quite old and doesn't seem to be accurate anymore.

Any tips would be very appreciated.

I was googling fine, went to eat, and when I came back this security alert appeared when tried to google something, and it also appears if I try to enter Youtube, like if Google sites now are a security risk for Firefox?

Edge opens them, Chrome opens them, WTF?? I just went to eat, didn't update nothing, didn't add a cookie, didn't restart the computer, I didn't even close the browser, I JUST WENT TO EAT. This is for those that say "restart", "clean your cookies", "update Firefox", I've already tried the obvious, what the hell happened? Did Firefox get in a fight with Google or what?

Do developers read these topics or we're just "helping each other"? Well, thanks for any info on the matter...

Why do I keep receiving an "Error 15 Access Denied" for this website?

Id didn't happen in the past, but began sometime during 84.02 and has continued in 85.0.

Here's what the message page says:

When I visit quora.com on Firefox, I get broken images. This doesn't happen with Edge or Chrome, and of course not on my other devices (so not a network/firewall issue). It seems to be only on Quora so far.

I tried deleting cache, refreshing the browser, creating a new account, running without add-ons or plugins, without success. Switching off the enhanced tracking protection doesn't help either. I am running out of options...

The only thing I can think off, is that the browser was installed with admin rights that I do not have anymore, although it still updates without errors.

Can anyone help?

Does anyone know of a work around to enable clipboard API functionality over a local intranet without a public domain name?

  • I use a local server application with a http interface on my home Intranet, accessed via FireFox (a web browser). I do not want the program to be accessed from the internet, and don't have and don't think I want a public domain for my local Intranet server. In the past I have been accessing it from Firefox by book marking the IP address and port.
  • The program has recently changed from using Document.execCommand() method to the modern asynchronous Clipboard API.
  • The clipboard API in Firefox defaults to requiring the host is accessed via https (appropriate for public facing internet access) or the host server is run on the same machine as the web browser (127.0.0.1 or localhost).
  • From a security perspective I'm not convinced I need encryption between computer in my home networks (if that traffic is being intercepted to spy on or modify my clipboard, then my private network has already been severely compromised).

As a result of the clipboard API conventions, the program's clipboard functionality no longer works for me. I have tried

  • looking for a Firefox exception settings, to enable clipboard API functionally over http (vs https) for specific local IP, but could not find how to do that in FireFox
  • I have tried installing Caddy but without a domain name I couldn't get it to reverse-proxy to https

Am I missing an easy solution or do local servers need public addresses now.

C-disk is rather small, therefore idea came of swapping it to (D) And HOW do I remove it from (C)? Many thanks for any idea All (MY real name)

Hello, We run a website that uses a bookmarklet button which allows us to capture the current URL location and save it. This is placed on the Tool Bar where its easy for a user to use. Until now, its been working perfectly but with this latest update to FireFox we are seeing the pop-up blocking being activated with the yellow message bar at the top. Now this would be ok if we only had to allow the pop up once (by clicking allow site), but unfortunately the bookmarket button has to be able to work on all sites, which is the whole point of the button. So its impractical to keep allowing it every time its used. Disabling the pop-up blocker completely then works, but then the browser is open to other pop-ups. Is there any way to allow bookmarklets to display a pop up and not display a pop-up message? Without having to disable the entire pop-up functionality. Can the FF developers allow for user placed bookmarklets to not be pop-up blocked. Maybe an exception added for that. They are placed manually by the user so are allowed by the user only.

Thanks for reading. Paul.

hi, using google classroom & firefox during covid, during a live stream from tutor once logged in, there is no audio/voice of the tutor ! my speakers and mic seem to be working on any other websites, no issues.

After contacting tutor, they confirm we are the only ones not able to hear her voice, and assures us the issue is at our end. we run win 10, laptop about 8 months old. firefox browser, no audio icon with a cross on it.

Surprisingly the audio will play if you watch the webcast later in the day, however you are required to be logged in in the mornings !

despite many hours googling this issue, i can't find a solution, any advice ? is this a known issue with firefox and live streams. thanks in advance for any resolution offered.
