I opened Google Calendar as a web app in Firefox by opening it in my Firefox Developer Edition browser and clicking the "page options" button (three dots side by side in the address bar).

In Google Calendar, I clicked on an event in my schedule that had a link attached. When I clicked the link, nothing happened and I wasn't redirected.

The specific link isn't the problem- all of my Google Calendar event links open when I click on them in the regular Firefox browser, and they also work when I click on them in the Microsoft Edge web app mode. As far as I can tell, only my Google Calendar event links have this issue, and only in Firefox Web App mode.

I tried restarting my browser with add-ons disabled and the problem still occurred. Appreciate any help.

Hi and sorry for the vague subject line.

Here is the situation. On one page of the site an iframe is rendered. The src element of the iframe is a local url. The src url will render an html page which is simply an html form that posts to a remote url. The remote site will do some internal posts and then finally sends a get request back to my app. The final step is to render a local page from my app. All that should happen within the iframe.

With Firefox the final page is not rendered. I can debug the site and I see the final get request is processed on the server but Firefox doesn't display the page. I've tried returning a redirect to the final page instead of returning the html and then I can see in the dev tools a get request to that (local) url however I just get a blank page in the iframe.

All this is using https urls. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks. Sean

Weird problem: 'Search in page' (CTRL+F) orks fine on most pages but is not working on one particular page

The page search facility (Ctrl+F) works fine for most pages, but doesn't work on one particular page.

The page in question happens to be my home page and is one that I created via Macromedia Dreamweaver. It is my web portal containing numerous links (to all the sites I usually access).

I press Ctrl+F and the search box appears at bottom of screen, as usual. I enter a word in the search box, click the up and down arrows, but it doesn't find any matches, even though that word definitely exists on the page (multiple times). (The Highlight All, Match Case, Whole Words options are not selected). If I enable "Highlight All", nothing is highlighted.

This problem has surfaced in the last month or so. I suspect it may have crept in with a recent Firefox update, as this wasn't a problem in the past. My setup: Desktop PC, Win 10 (64bit), Firefox is 82.0 (64-bit) -the current version, and I'm using the Default Theme.

PS: I opened the same page with Microsoft Edge and the Page Search works fine there. .... but Firefox is my preferred browser, so I need to get to the bottom of this problem.

Any suggestions on how I can resolve this weird problem?

WHY? Because the permission was NOT CLEAR nor did it elucidate what exactly does the Add-On have of MY data.

Is "My DATA" the HTML portion? The JavaScript? The URLBOX? Data store? WHAT EXACTLY is "MY DATA"?

I use Firefox sync to share logins and passwords between my home and work computer. I set this up a few years ago. Now I want to sync another computer, but I don't remember the sync password. I believe it's written in a code book in my office, which has been closed due to Covid 19 since March. How can I change my sync password while preserving my login and password info? Many of my passwords were generated by Firefox and not something I would ever remember.

I can see my current logins and passwords on a sync enabled computer, so in theory I can copy and re-enter them all. But there are hundreds, and that would many hours. If I was willing to do this, is there a way that I can enter the logins and passwords into a table in Firefox without having to visit every website, log in, and re-save the login info? At this point my only two options seem to be to not use my sinced profile on that computer, or to spend all day manually setting everything up again. Thanks.

In Windows 10, in a tablet environment, things aren't working properly. I'm referring primarily to the onscreen keyboard. In Windows Tablet mode, an onscreen keyboard should appear in address bar and text fields. Firefox is killing that onscreen keyboard. The keyboard appears, but then immediately disappears. There also is a visual glitch occurring in the title-bar simultaneous with the killing of the OSK (on screen keyboard). This only happens in Firefox. OSK in MS Edge functions great for example. In desktop mode, but still physically in a tablet environment (Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga X1, folded, portrait mode for example), no OSK appears at all anywhere. This is not working well for me and will likely be a problem for others as we continue to approach the future. I truly hope that Firefox prioritizes Windows 10 tablet environments. It really is going to be important to many users.

This question was already asked [this thread] but the solution doesn't work for me.

In about:config, no matter what value I give to permissions.default.shortcuts, sites are still able to intercept my keyboard shortcuts (eg Ctrl+f).

I can disable it for individual sites, using Page Info > Permissions, but I'd like this turned off across the board because I find it creepy when sites mess with my controls.

Hi,

Tried to find the solution but the problem boggles me.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Windows 10 (2004). Using one Windows session (let's call it WS1), my profiles (even new ones) are extremely slow, as if I had a really bad Internet connection (but responds well to typing or opening new tabs or operating in general, just slow navigation). I have a backup browser, Opera, that works just fine. On another Windows session (WS2), Firefox works just fine, even with the profiles from WS1.

Safe mode doesn't resolve anything.

It can't be a driver problem, as it's the same PC, shouldn't be a software problem, same reason, and both sessions are built pretty much the same way.

I tried uninstalling Firefox, using Windows Disk Cleanup as per this solution https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1219670 then reinstalling it again and no change.

I can't use the other Windows session as it's not mine, and I can't create a new one either.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Edit: I was finally allowed a new Win session and the problem disappeared. Can't delete the question though.

Whenever I save a webpage, it says failed in the Download history. The page actually does save but shows it as failed. If I double-click on the "failed" page in the Download history, the download history says that it saved, but if I open the re-saved page the re-saved webpage many times looks like a non-html page or simply only saves part of the page. This is puzzling in that if I ignore the false message that the page failed to save and open the page from my download folder, all looks fine. Please help, Thanks, pianotech

Hi, I have been using Ubuntu Mate, for some time now, since the latest installed versions, Firefox is unable to print the invoices generated by the revenue agencies site. The print is generated empty, it only shows the details of the site and some accessory data at the top. I tried to install an old version, 78, if I remember correctly, and the prints are fine. I tried with another browser and the printouts are correct, again. Does it happen to you too?
