Large White Bar At The Bottom Of The Screen In Firefox (Windows 11, v106.0b4 Developer Edition, v105.0.1 Standard Edition)

Hello, I am currently having an annoying issue when browsing Firefox on particular websites. There's this large, irremovable white bar at the bottom of the screen that appears when I'm browsing particular websites (it only appears on those and those websites only), but it never appears on other websites and there doesn't seem to be a way to remove it. I've tried clearing cookies and cache, disabling certain extensions but nothing has seemed to work so far. I'm currently using the Firefox Nightly, but the same exact issue is present on the same exact websites (developer.mozilla.org, codewars.com, etc.) on my regular version of the browser. This is getting really annoying and I don't want to switch to a Chromium-based browser, so is there any way to fix this annoying issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I saw many tutorials on making self-signed certificates get a lock sign of trusted certificate, which were installing the root certificate of authority in firefox which i did, and also installed in windows, i am using latest version of firefox developer edition, this is error i recieve:

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox Developer Edition does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for 192.168.0.102. The certificate is only valid for the following names: localhost, 192.168.0.102, 172.20.10.3

On my laptop, I run FDE as my daily driver, with the release version to handle my webmail. I also use portable firefox (from portableapps.com) as a browser to use while at work, from a thumb drive. While using that portable verison, I usually just go to google image search, and a work site that would definitely be secure.

My question: I don't like to update the installation on my thumb drive very often, and occasionally work computers are very slow anyways. So if I were to update it no more often than once a month, which version of firefox would be most secure: Release, Beta, or Nightly?

If doing this is just dumb, then which version gets updated less often--it would be Release, correct?

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "We need to restart to finish updating" <- This last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on Fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

Hi,

I'm struggling with how to sort my many bookmarks. Not sure if a bookmark should be in a sub-directory and/or I add multiple tags. I've thought of adding them to generalized directories and then adding as many tags as needed, but am not able to search/select multiple tags in the Library window. Any pointers on what is a good way to do this?

I have things like Coding, Learning, Tools. But then also Git, PHP, Linux. I can't figure out how to sort all these :( Thanks for any input you may have.

Cheers.

Print popup window ghosted except for Format field

I'm on FF Beta v105.0b6, and a recent upgrade (I'm guessing from 104 to 105) has caused popup windows to be ghosted when saving files, leaving only the file selector field visible and floating above the main window, often indistinguishable from the text below it. I've been able to work around this by temporarily jumping to another screen or window and then back to find the complete popup window magically revealed.

I've attached two clips from windows a see after clicking Download link on the https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ page. This ghost behavior also happens on pages where I right-click context to "save as" or click download link for TXT, PDF, PKG or other types of files.

This doesn't seem to be a popup blocking issue, since my FF is not configured to block these specific sites and the popup is minimally visible. Also, the temporary workaround of simply switching my view away and back points more to a page rendering issue.

I'd appreciate any ideas on resolving or preventing this behavior. If these clues point to a bug, I hope they help resolve the issue.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Somewhere around September 6 something changed in Firefox which prevents me from accessing my control area for a website I own. The error says: " your connection to this site is not private. Information ...". I am the only person with access to this site and my password to the site is 20 characters long with special character and randomly generate. Everything worked well and doesn't work on any computer in my house. This change in your software is costing me money as I can't work on my website. I am not a happy camper. Please tell me how to resolve this problem. Telling me to ask the hosting company to make changes is not a valid response.

Hi, I have set Firefox to "Open previous windows and tabs" and to "Open links in tabs instead of new windows". When the system opens Firefox for me because I've clicked a link in a document, I would like the link to open in a new tab of that previous window which Firefox opens at startup. For many years this was its behaviour. In Chrome for example, this was not and is still not the case.

Recent upgrades to Firefox have changed its behaviour to that of Chrome. When I click a link, Firefox now opens the link in a new window and then opens the previous window on top of that. The link I wanted to follow is behind and invisible.

Could someone check and see if this is related to my system (I'm running Monterey) or if it's reproducible? I can't think of a reason for this change so it feels like a bug, either on my system or in the app itself.

Thanks for any help!

Recently, I've started noticing these quick action tiles in the URL drop-down menu (I've attached a screenshot). There's a help icon to their right, but it just goes to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/quick-actions-firefox-search-bar?as=u&utm_source=inproduct which is a 404. I found this bugzilla bug, but I'm not 100% sure on how the versioning works (even after consulting Wikipedia). The bugzilla entry mentions it's fixed on 105.0a1. I'm using 105.0b6 of the Developer Edition.
