After upgrading firefox to the latest version 94.0, it became impossible to copy entrys directly from keepass to firefox. Now to copy entrys, you first need to copy it from keepass to notepad, and then from notepad to firefox. What is the reason for this?

My system is mint 19 and keepass version 2.45

Dear Support,

I am using Pulse SMS in Firefox 94.01 in Windows 10, https://pulsesms.app. I receive MP4 videos via this SMS web application and Firefox will not open them, they are coming from an Apple IPHONE. I receive the following error and the video will not play.

No Video with supported format and MIME type found

I open the same Pulse SMS app in Google Chrome, MS Edge, Vivaldi and each of those applications plays back the video fine and I hear the sound. I have disabled all extensions in Firefox, and also allowed all all the Site permissions for the web app site, I have turned off enhance tracking, note of the firefox settings seem to help The MP4 will not play. Can anyone point me to a setting that might allow me to playback these videos? I have looked thru the history of Firefox and it seems to be an issue that rears it's head quite often over the years. If anyone has a solution could you please let me know. thank you for your help!

Hey.

I don't know if it's a "problem" or it's really right.

What you need to do for see an example of what I'm saying: 1. Open Telegram Web (web.telegram.org/k/) 2. Right click on any link 3. Right click again, over the link

You'll see a normal options menu, FF is not recognizing as a link So, because of that we can't open links using private window

I don't think anyone has noticed that yet.

I removed the 32 bit version of firefox some time ago and installed the Firefox 64 bit version on my larger secondary drive. Firefox recently updated but the update cause the same version of firefox (version 94.0.1 build 20211103134640) into multiple hard-drives (C & D drives) and different folders. There are now multiple icons in my start menu and the task bar for firefox. They BOTH each fight for the default browser setting as if they were different browsers, and only one will open my previous windows and tabs at startup. I only want firefox to be installed on my secondary drive as my C drive has a much smaller capacity. How can I distinguish and remove one of these conflicting multiple copies of Firefox from my PC without loosing my saved tabs or all of my personal data? Why is firefox installing as 2 different apps, on 2 different hard drives, along the same profile path in two different profile folders as shown with "more troubleshooting information" from the help dropdown menu?

[Edited: Point (1) is now serious. Point (2) can be ignored. I have edited the question title to indicate that it still occurs in version 94.0.1. My latest post in this thread identifies another symptom of the update problem]

I have been automatically updated to 90.0.2 on several machines (most 64-bit Windows 7), but there appear to be problems with the latest version. I can't see evidence that these have already been reported.

1) Window update. When the browser window comes to the fore (top of the z-order), or when resurrecting from a minimized state, it does not redraw the whole window. Usually, half is missing. However, a cursor-move event while over the window triggers a redraw.

2) I have just experienced CAPTCHA issues trying to get into an gov.ie website. Instead of showing me text to enter into the field, it just showed a gray square. However ,the same challenge works OK in Chrome (i.e. it's not a problem with the site itself).

Are these known issues? Is there a way to regress to the previous version?

When I forward some links, rather than taking the recipient to the specific YouTube page, the link takes them to the YouTube home page. Other sites I can still forward correctly. I have researched this issue and except for a virus that affected Firefox a few years back, I have found nothing. I have run spyware, malware, and virusware with no change.

Is this a YouTube issue? Another form of Big Tech censorship? Anyone else out there having issues like this?

I finally put FireFox in the garbage can in my iMac (Big Sur 11.5.1) and flushed it and then downloaded a new copy. No difference. I deleted all my cookies per the Firefox suggested repair page. Why would a specific site generate these forward issues? Just for giggles, I tried a forward in Safari (which I never otherwise use) and the links work correctly.

I have been a Firefox supporter from the very beginning and hate to swap browsers. Thank you to all the wonderful code writers and tech support volunteers out there who make this effort possible.

Windows 10 Home.Lots of memory. Here is what the Firefox upgrade to 94.0.1(I believe that's it - can't tell because of loss of tool bar) has done to my laptop: (1) destroyed saved passwords (2) destroyed File History (3) Caused several programs to cease to function (4) destroyed bookmarks (5) destroyed task bar and eliminated all shortcuts (6) because of destruction of File History, made it impossible to do a Microsoft Restore.

This is truly the worst computer experience in my long life. I have tried desperately to tell Firefox NEVER TO UPGRADE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. No luck. I am absolutely sick at heart over the dire situation in which this unwanted upgrade has left me. Is there ANY HELP???????? I'm pretty desperate. Thanks for reading.

P.S. AND NO, I CAN NOT BOOT INTO SAFE MODE. Microsoft now hates me and is unable to install updates; however, life is not that simple. In spite of my telling MS not to update without permission, it continues to try - which fails, which wastes about 2.5 hours.

I have Brisbane Times (BT) as my home page on Firefox (which is my main browser). Since I installed the latest version of FF, I have to login manually (not automatically) to BT and having done so when I close an article it logs me out of BT. Firefox asks of if I want to make FF my home browser. I see that BT is one of my saved logins but this logging out etc is something that did not happen with the older version of FF. So please how do I permanently make FF my home browser and how do I get it to remember my login on BT when I flick between articles?

Hi,

I have been using Firefox sync for many years now. I just got a new computer and when I tried to connect with my account, I received a message saying Firefox has locked my account.

Would you please fix this asap? I use your browser to work and not having my account back would force me to switch to Chromium, which I don't want to. Please note my account and my email address are both legit. Thanks

Since sometime in August 2021, I suspect after an update, occasionally when I launch Firefox it reports that it was unable to restore a previous session. I do not have the option to open previous sessions selected. On other occasions it starts properly with a blank page as it is configured to do.

Am I missing a setting?

It is not a major problem, I can simply enter a URL or search string in the address bar and it works properly for the rest of the session.

It is happening both on my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs running the 64-bit version of Firefox.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

As of 11/21/2021 is there any way to stop detaching and floating videos ? All the searches on the Web produce loads of blogs where the issue is discussed -- but none of it works definitively. A lot of Hot Air and useless comments on the topic. Most point to about:config, which has been shown useless to stop floating videos, in my experience. Have tried every permutation of manipulating relevant config settings according to advice I have found -- nothing works. At the DailyMail.Com you can ad a script to AdBlock and it works -- for one site...

All the search links go in circles and just repeat the same information -- none of which works. Particularly annoying are the CBS affiliate sites with the URL *CbsLocal.com. Element blocking and ad blocking via UBlock and AdBlock does NOT work beyond one page view. It seems the floating video frames are given unique tags each time the page loads so you would have to code every combination of the alpha-numeric identifiers they use. That number is something like equivalent to the number of all the grains of sand on all the beaches in the world, according to my calculator...

If I am directed to manipulate about:config again I think I will scream and pull my hair out. Such a major annoyance and I am to believe there is utterly no way to stop it ? After all these years and the FF developers haven't looked into this ? I find that hard to believe...

The storage of Logins & Passwords needs a new feature. The system lacks the ability to store a Nickname (aka Note/Comment) to each login entry. Some domains are different than the commonly known website name.

I often try out different linux distros and so by proxy log into firefox on new OS's quite often. The problem im having is that after syncing my FF acc onto a new device it syncs my blank homepage as my new homepage for all my devices and removes my shortcuts. I would very much like to have all my shortcuts synced on all my devices and not have to set them up on all my OS's/New FF sessions (especially my main widows machine that doesn't change). Any tips? I would even take having to set up new shortcuts on my new browsers, i just hate losing the shortcuts on my main desktop.

I have the same problem as [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/use.../own404410|@Sky] at "[Addons for Normal and Developer Edition separately]". I would like to present the problem from my side and propose a not difficult but useful solution.


"Synced Addons *and settings* for Normal and Developer Edition separately" is a feature I need and require from Mozilla. I don't want to have developer-only extensions and settings from Developer Edition in the normal browser. I also don't want to create a separate account because I won't be able to view Developer Edition browser content on my phone.

The best would still be share search history and bookmarks with both browsers and the phone.

"Synchronization channel selection function and synchronization content" could be a solution. On a normal browser I create a "normal" synchronization channel and there I choose all the elements to be synchronized. On Developer Edition I create a new "developer" channel and choose sync: history, tabs, bookmarks, addons and settings. Additionally, I choose the existing "normal" channel for synchronization of history and bookmarks. And I sync my phone with the normal channel.

Please consider such a feature in Firefox browsers ;)))
