I have a web page which includes the following header:

WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="xxxx"

where xxxx is a text string, the name of the realm. This header causes the browser to pop-up a dialogue box in which the user should enter a user name and password. The dialogue box is functioning correctly. However, there is a problem with what it displays. It should include the name of the realm ("xxxx" in this example), but it does not do so. It seems that this problem has only started occurring recently. Until a little while ago, the dialogue box used to include the sentence: 'The site says "xxxx".' Why does it no longer do so?

I deplore the way the browser looks now and want the old look back... I have vision problems and am totally ignorant about computers. I finally found FF and the last version was PERFECT. I could clearly see it, knew how to use it, and LOVED it and I WANT IT BACK. SIMPLY... Because I am so ignorant, the instructions I have seen so far might have been written in a foreign language. Is there a SIMPLE way to restore the OLD LOOK and feel. Keeping all the new security and other stuff is fine...although I was fine with the way it was, but I will have to find another browser if someone cannot help me fix the image back to the way it was. Please, why do they upgrade this stuff and not leave a way to keep the old look for those of us who don't want to change? If anyone can help me...I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

For the past couple of weeks, I have been having an issue with web pages and emails showing my type all scrambled. I can't recall changing any settings. I am running MacOS Mojave 10.14.6, and Firefox 89.0. I have a screenshot attached to show what it's doing. If I close and then reopen Firefox, then it's fine, but not for too long. Within a 1/2 or so, I have to close and restart all over again. Any help is appreciated!

Since the latest update, Firefox shows a white space at the top of all web pages, covering almost half the screen. This includes customisation screens for addons, themes, and also the troubleshooting page. The only page that seems unaffected is Firefox's own settings.

The issue seems linked to the toolbar somehow, as entering fullscreen mode temporarily hides the issue. However, as soon as the cursor moves up far enough to show the tabs and search bar, the white space also reappears. Hiding either the menubar, the bookmarks toolbar, or both did not fix the issue.

Restarting Firefox in troubleshooting mode seemed to help, but I have not managed to find the root cause. These are the things I tried, first one by one and then all at once, with no result:

  • Deactivating addons
  • Switching to system default theme
  • Deleting userChrome.css
  • Clicking "Refresh Firefox..." on the troubleshooting page

Hallo!

Ich bin neu hier und finde mich überhaupt nicht zurecht. Ich wollte ein Feedback schreiben, weil derzeit jedes Update von Firefox weitere Verschlechterungen bei der Benutzerfreundlichkeit mit sich bringt. Ich kann nach dem neuesten Update auf Version 89 nichtmal mehr die Sitzungswiederherstellung ausführen, da steht jetzt Neuer Tab, statt about:sessionrestore, wenn er diese laden will. Nachdem man schon den Sitzungsmanager von Michael Kraft wirkungslos gemacht hat, kann man jetzt noch schlechter Sitzungen verwalten. Keine erlaubte Alternative kommt diesem Manager gleich. Warum darf ich als Nutzer nicht selbst entscheiden, welches "Risiko" ich bei der Auswahl von Add-ons eingehe?!

Firefox 84.0 Opens Extra Window when Launched via Hyperlink on macOS

I'm on an iMac running Big Sur 11.4 and Firefox 84.0. When I click on an external hyperlink (say from an email), a new Firefox window opens to my home page even though there is already a Firefox window open. There is only one tab in the new Firefox window (not two like previously reported) - the home page. This does not happen when I switch to Safari. In preferences, I have "open links in tabs instead of new windows" checked. This just started a few months ago. Also, in the example email, when i hover over the hyperlink, a little downarrow box appears to the right of the link. When I click on the down arrow, a window opens with the proper link, but it's not a Firefox window. At the top of this new window, there is a box that says "open with Safari". When I click on it, it takes me to a new Firefox window with only the home page tab. ????

I just updated to FF89. When I start typing in the search bar located in the New Tab page, the cursor jumps to the address bar and I get the search suggestions in the address bar. In previous versions of FF the cursor stayed in the New Tab page. How can I go back to the old behavior?

jscher has been very helpful with my intense dislike of Version 89, but in the last few days, something changed here and I can't get back into that discussion.

I updated my upstairs PC to 89, then was absolutely horrified when I saw it. It's ugly. There is little to no differentiation between the different parts of the screen. My Bookmarks list had so much extra white space added that I had to scroll down three screens to see it all - it used to fit on one page.

You made the type smaller and the bubbles larger.

You changed the ENTIRE Options menu so it's now hard to find what I want, and some functions have been removed.

Also, your STOP POPUPS no longer works AT ALL. I am being inundated with them.

I was so angry at this terrible Facebook-like new version that I deleted FF completely, ran CCleaner and re-loaded Version 88. Of course I lost all my favorites while doing this. When I went back upstairs a few hours later, the update was re-done WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. Very sneaky.

I found out how to shut off all the Proton stuff, so I can now use FF upstairs. I see tons of "fixes" using CSS stuff, which I am not comfortable using. A browser should make these options EASY!

You say this is a "new, clean look." You didn't take into consideration that many users like the way it looked before, and don't want to re-learn an entire new program. Please add back in choices for those of us who are not IT geek coders and just need a simple, FUNCTIONING browser.

Latest update installed and lo and behold, once again Mozilla screwed it up. I now have one tab on the bottom of the page instead of many in a toolbar at the top of the page. Mozilla continues to ignore users' complaints about tab location preferences and other tab functionality and arbitrarily making decisions which for most people make no sense. This latest iteration of Firefox (89.0) is for me the last straw. I will no longer humor Mozilla by spending countless frustrating hours correcting your obvious lack of programming skills by attempting to return my browser to what it was prior to another faulty update. My patience has finally run out. Before I leave Mozilla and Firefox, one last comment. Because the Mozilla support forum relies on amateurs and volunteers to answer users questions, and since I have had trouble getting workable solutions to my problems, I tried to send feedback directly to Mozilla. That was a monumental task which I was not up to, obviously, which is why I'm here. Whatever good there is in Firefox is far out weighed by the lack of programming skills, beta testing, quality control, etc. prior to forcing out updates to it's users. Like many recent users I have decided to forego further use of the Firefox browser which is unreliable from a development team which does not seem to care. I am beginning to wonder if the continuing screw ups are being deliberately caused by embedded saboteurs from Google or Microsoft!

With FF open to a banking site, Excel and other apps (2nd FF instance) will not accept alpha/numeric keyboard input. Arrow keys and enter key still work. Logged out from bank, close the FF window, bring up new tab (Goggle) and type "123" in search bar, then Excel works okay. Also works if I use Edge to get to my bank accounts.

Work around #1: save bank page on desktop, close the on-line page, and open it from desktop. Work around #2: Use Edge.

Added info: problem is not consistent. Sometimes things work okay, sometimes not.

I want to use the Windows 10 multiple desktop feature so that I can have different applications running on each desktop. But when I have Firefox running on any desktop it always appears on all the others as well. If I have Edge running it will only appear on the desktop on which it is launched or subsequently psotioned.

How can I fix this for Firefox?

I am using Firefox on Linux (Ubuntu 20.10) to work from home over OpenVPN. Recently the VPN configuration was changed to use split tunneling to improve our internet connection. Since then I have had several DNS resolving issues in Firefox.

We use an on premise DNS server as an alternative to `localhost` domain names so we can access other developers' environments and so a few services can do the same. Our URL structure is like projectname.[optional personal identifier.]localhost.[type].nl. Without the [optional personal identifier], or when nothing is configured for it, the ip address is 127.0.0.1.

In Linux' OpenVPN configuration I have "Use this connection only for resource on its network" enabled for IPv4 and IPv6 is disabled (to benefit from split tunneling). With that enabled Firefox usually fails to resolve such development hostnames.

- As far as I know I do not have DoH enabled (and the about:networking log further down tells so too). - I do have `dnsmasq` enabled (with configuration for the above domain formats to route to 127.0.0.1 also) in an attempt to fix some issues before the split tunneling was configured correctly. And in an attempt to try and get Firefox to handle these DNS resolving issues. - `dig` on the command line for the same domain works just fine. - Adding hostnames to /etc/hosts works. But that's becoming a chore, working on dozens of projects over months.

Why is Firefox failing to resolve such domain names? Should I just create a Bugzilla issue?

I created a log with about:networking set to `timestamp,nsHostResolver:5`:

I used to have a nice blue strip across the top of any active window. It is now grey, which I find depressing and it is no longer possible to see when a window has gone inactive. How do I get my blue back? I tried downloading Firefox colors but when I tried to use it it wouldn't load, I waited and waited then gave up. I cannot take a screenshot of the strip I am talking about as is it outside the screenshot field. (Above it.) Many thanks, Kitty
