This current version of Firefox (126.0) is preventing Yahoo! Comments from showing/displaying in ANY Yahoo! article. After I finished reading a Yahoo! article, the Yahoo! Comments is viewed but upon clicking on Comments, it just disappeared. It happens in any Yahoo! article with Comments. I used Safari to see if I experience similar issue but Safari is able to show/display Yahoo! Comments upon clicking on them. I have no other browser plug-in or app in Firefox preventing Yahoo! Comments from showing, it seems to be a Firefox JavaScript issue.

I have always used facebook messenger to video chat with friends, however suddenly it says tis facility is not supported by this browser. Do I have to leave firefox to find a browser that works?

I see that other people have raised this point,but there does not seem to be a response from firefox.

Suggestion from Browsing History should not include "Base URL"

Hi all Firefoxers, There are a few sites that I always access via a URL that could look like : https://device.domain.com/admin/ When I went to visit that device, … (read more)

Hi all Firefoxers,

There are a few sites that I always access via a URL that could look like :

https://device.domain.com/admin/

When I went to visit that device, typing in the URL bar "device.domain..." , Firefox's 1st default suggestion shows as https://device.domain.com/

The problem is that I never visited that site, the way to access this device is https://device.domain.com/admin/ - there's no way to reconfigure the device and have an auto-redirect to .../admin location.

https://device.domain.com/ is not in my Browsing History nor do I have an open-tab. In the settings Privacy->Address Bar, disabling "Browsing History" removes https://device.domain.com/ from the suggestion list but it also removes all suggestion from the history. This is the expected behavior, the bug required fix isn't related to this.

If the "Base URL" isn't saved in the Browsing History, how can someone tell Firefox to only suggest absolute entries from the history?

When using Chrome Dev Tools, I can block a request, and when I open or close Dev Tools, the request is still in the "Network request blocking" tab. It means it keeps a history of networks which I blocked.

With Firefox, as soon as I close my Dev Tools, my blocked requests are gone. Every time I open my Dev Tools in Firefox, I need to search through my notes to remember which requests I need to block, instead of being able to simply select a request from a list of previously blocked requests like in Chrome.

As of January 2024, I am constantly being asked for a Primary Password when I use the Firefox browser. I do not believe I ever set a Primary Password or Master Password with Firefox, and I have been using Firefox for many years. When I go to the Settings page, it says to confirm my current Primary Password in order to change it. But I need to know my current password to do that. I also unchecked Primary Password, and got a pop-up that said if I remove my Primary Password my information will not be protected if my computer is compromised. Obviously, I don't want that to happen. Is it possible I am being asked for a Primary Password because I am using a VPN? Please advise on how to resolve this problem. I can't change my password, and I can't confirm ever setting one so I am concerned. Thank you.

Today I installed a new extension (Bitwarden) and want to add the icon to the toolbar. I can't find it anywhere. The add-on shows up in the add-on manager but there's nothing there to help me add the icon. The little puzzle piece in the upper right of the browser -- click on that and Bitwarden isn't listed.

How do I fix this? In Chrome there's a simple toggle switch in the extension manager to add the icon to the toolbar. Frankly, if I can't get this Bitwarden icon to display I can't use Firefox at all. Thanks.

I made sure my microsoft account was not hacked and it is not, and I logged out of it. I still keeping getting this; I added the succession of what happens in the attached images. Please figure out what the issue is. Thank you!

I recently traveled to Australia for two weeks. While there, I used my mac laptop (with Firefox as my primary browser) on a mix of both wifi-without-VPN and hotel wifi with a VPN back to my home network activated.

I have been back home for more than a week. Other browsers on the same laptop as well as other devices (like my phone) that I took with me on the trip correctly reflect my location (east coast, USA). However, Firefox stubbornly insists that I am still in Australia. The net effect of this has been to break my access to YouTubeTV, which is not available in Australia.

I have tried: - Logging fully out of my google account on firefox and logging back in (at which point the 2FA prompt on my phone says I'm trying to log back in from Australia) - Deleting all cookies, cache and website data - Fully uninstalling Firefox, including deleting the Firefox folder in ApplicationSupport

None of these have had any effect.

Within YouTubeTV, I can force an update to my location, which will temporarily reflect correctly that I am in the US. But it still won't let me play anything if I'm using Firefox, and within Firefox, will soon revert to location unknown. Other browsers on this laptop, and other devices, work fine.

I am at my wit's end. Please advise.
