Edge and Chrome directly open embedded government pages, such as https://www.nifc.gov and https://hazards.fema.gov/nri/map, that "Firefox Can't Open." "To protect your security," Firefox requires each to be opened in a new window. This is an incentive for users to switch to Edge or Chrome and stop using Firefox. All .gov pages should be safe to open even if they do not "utilize x-frame options or a content security policy to control whether other websites can embed them."

Hi,

just for understanding:

Why can the Firefox source code (view-source) of a website be nearly three times the size compared with Chrome/Opera or when I save the Firefox source code marked and copied and then pasted and saved via an editor?

Example: Firefox 546,6 KiB Chrome/Opera 204,3 KiB via Editor 204,3 KiB (marked and copied Firefox source code)

Best

I never use tabs, so dunno when this invaded my browser but all of a sudden there's a list of tabs going from left to right - starting with the website I am on (e g this one - ``Get Support - Mozilla Support).

I do not need a 3/4 inch bar telling me TWICE what I can see ONCE already on the address bar. I have researched Firefox Support for a week now and things like the ``chromecss file have nothing to do with it and neither solve the problem no r escalate to somebody who can.

I'm receiving multiple notifications every day on my android phone (Google Pixel 7a), purporting to be from firefox, warning me about things like having been hacked, checking my antivirus and many more. This started suddenly, a couple of days ago.

I use firefox as my browser both on android and my pc, as I like the mozilla ethos.

All the messages have the firefox logo at the top. All the messages have the same url: na.check-tl-ver-116-3.com

I have attached a screenshot.

Could someone please help me: 1. work out whether these are a scam 2. stop them

Many thanks

hi, my drive died 4days ago and i'm just now back online, i was sure that i had registered (signed on) with Firefox. Turns out i have NOT done that... MYBAD, fersure, i am hoping against all odds that you can help me recover all my old passwords which i have stored on the Fire Fox app that i was using, quite happily, with the old drive, i still have some, a handful of those addresses and passwords on file, but not near enough to get back to where i was online b4 the old drive kacked, i was hoping that if i gave you the addies and passwords, you could somehow find that Firefox i had downloaded? I gotta say that i feel SO stupid asking this, but trust me...LESSON WELL LEARNED!!! if you can help me that would be AWESOMELY MASSIVELY GOOD!!!! THANK YOU for your time Malcolm Wright

Hi

My GF just rung up, she is running FF 128.0 (64-bit) from Ubuntu snap on Ubuntu Linux 22.04.4 LTS (which I set up for her and use myself)

She complained that whenever she starts up FF she gets a display about "MS Windows Defender" and ringing some allegedly Microsoft number together with a recorded message over and over.

I logged into her machine remotely using the SSH connection I've set up (Fiewalled so only I can do it), killed FF and she tried it again with the same result.

I told her go go onto Chrome for now, which she did without incident. On no account should she ring the number, which is obviously that of a scammer, although they would be confused by a Linux system.

In the meantime I had a look round the files on her machine. I couldn't find anything in particular, but I wasn't very sure where to look.

I tried deleting the contents of .cache/mozilla/firefox/0e35ujgr.default/startupCache and that enabled her to use FF again but I notice it got repopulated, seemingly with stuff relevant to Windows - however I see that exists on my system.

She almost exclusively uses Facebook on the system, I wonder if it is malware from a FB ad?

Has anyone got any idea about what this malware is, where it came from and what files I should remove from her system if it happens again.
