My Firefox has gotten so buggy lately I can't use it. I'm writing from Edge. THere are numerous issues. The sign in process got messed up a couple months ago. IT asks for email address, then doesn't provide password screen option, takes forever to send email, and then sometimes repeats itself. Tabs crash and clicks fail to work randomly. Out of desperation I reset my Firefox password and that seemed to help temporarily, but not enough. So what's happened and how to fix??? Thanks.

I cannot find a way to add websites to the location permissions in Firefox Windows PC. I can easily get to the "Location Permissions settings " but there is no way to add, only remove. When I display the access icon in the URL address bar, it shows " you have granted the website additional permissions" , but the site does not display in the FF Settings-Location Box, and the target website does allow me access based on location. Is there another area where location is restricted? would appreciate some help, thx.

Hi there,

Using up to date Firefox on a Mac, London UK. Recently returned from travel in Japan. The bank cards auto-fill stopped working & Auto-fill does not appear in Privacy Settings (it is not there – no need to request a check please:)?

Spent 2 hours on Mozilla support/community etc. No answers – including 'make a new profile'...(& why - won' that affect history etc)?

Would be very grateful for any help please?

With thanks,

Alex

No support of 64bit PKCS#11 drivers for signing devices (i.e. smart cards) on 64bit Firefox

Hi, this is the same issue as as described here for Mozilla Thunderbird: 64bit Thunderbird issues with 64bit PKCS#11 drivers

– Firefox 122.0 (64-bit) – Windows 11 Pro 64bit (– Thunderbird 64bit)

Even though, I use a 64bit version of Firefox, it is not able to load any 64bit PKCS#11 module for security devices. Tried on several different PCs and several different 64bit PKCS#11 drivers for different smart cards.

When I try to load e.g. C:\Windows\SysWOW64\eop2v1czep11.dll for the Czech eID, it returns "Unable to add module". When I do the same from C:\Windows\System32\eop2v1czep11.dll, it works.

The issue is that some issuers of qualified and commercial certificates (like e.g. Komerční banka) do not issue a 32bit version of PKCS#11 drivers for their smart cards anymore and the only driver available is C:\Windows\SysWOW64\mopkcs11.dll, which cannot be loaded by Firefox or Thunderbird either.

I don't see a problem in implementing the support for 64bit PKCS drivers in a 64bit browser and a 64bit email client. And if it does have the support, then there is something wrong going on.

I encounter this message "Peer’s Certificate has been revoked. Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE" when connecting to "Site A" using Firefox version 122.0 (64), my primary browser. I have successfully connected to "Site A" using Firefox in the recent past.

I can connect to "Site A" without errors using my backup browser, MS Edge Version 121.0.2277.83 (Official build) (64-bit).

This seem to be a Firefox related problem.

When I launch FF after rebooting an annoying ad pops up on the new page tab, the contents are:

'Get the inside scoop

See the add-ons our staff use to make browsing faster, safer, or just plain fun!'

It pops up just under the puzzle piece icon next to the address bar.

Is there a way to block it?

This might just be a blind thing, I use the NVDA screen reader, but when I sign in to firefox, my password is 12 letters long, but when I look on my settings page, it's 18 characters long, is this normal?

I can log in using my 12 letter password and it's not a master password, I don't have one of those.

Any help would be apreciated.

I have noticed that my browser saves certain data that was filled into forms on websites such as contact info, or 2FA codes. Of course, the all options for Logins and Passwords as well as Forms and Autofill are turned off. So I wonder, what causes this behavior? I would maybe think these are some cookies, but after clearing them and deleting all site data this still happens. For 2FA codes this is harmless. but I'm concerned Firefox may do this for passwords too. Anyway, why would I need to save info of TOTP?

Note: Example is for SimpleLogin.

Firefox periodically says I am "forbidden" to enter my Kaiser website (KP.org). I know what Mozilla recommends as a fix, which is to clear data and cookies. But this creates more problems because I have to re-enter passwords and other settings. This is a problem Mozilla's website reports has been occurring for YEARS! Why can't Mozilla/Firefox fix this? Please tell me there is a better way to fix this problem.

OS: Linux Mint 21 Browser: Firefox 121.0

There are a few sites I frequently use that popup windows that can't be blocked or moved out of its lower right position. It most cases it blocks important text due to the screen/font scaling I have to use.

My browser privacy settings are set to "Strict".

Autoplay setting is: "Default for all websites: = Block all Websites"

The popup window banner reads "Trending Videos". No video or audio plays and the window is black with the error msg: Sorry, the video player failed to load.(Error Code: 104153)

There is an "X" button on the right hand side of the banner that does go into focus when I hover the cursor over it, but clicking on it does nothing.

I have tried various popup blocking addons but so far none have been able to stop these popup windows.

Suggestions please!
