Does anyone know how to configure Firefox to stop the annoying google log-in pop-up? I've seen others ask the same question, but I have not seen any functional answers. I've never had a google account, for anything. I don't get the pop-up with other browsers, like Falcon or Brave. It's just a problem on Firefox. I appreciate you help!

Bonjour, Depuis une semaine, j'ai ce message à l'ouverture de ma page d'accueil Orange, avec Firefox !! PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR il n'y a qu'avec mon navigateur et pas sur Chrome ni Edge. Avant, j'étais le seul impacté par ce problème et maintenant les trois P.C de la maison le sont. Deux W11 et un W10. En déconnectant le VPN le souci n'existe plus. Merci d'avance pour votre aide.

Sync is a nightmare. It is so unintuitive! What exactly would be wrong with having separate Export and Import buttons for each of Settings, Addons, Tabs, History, Bookmarks, etc? I have a desktop box and a newer laptop I wanted to get up to date. I pressed the Sync button on the desktop ... By the way, there`s a link below that reads "Connect another device" ... Connect where? Someone is designing these interfaces who has absolutely zero imagination. Anyways, I signed off, moved the ethernet cable to my laptop, signed in, pressed Sync, and voila!, I got my Bookmarks, at least. But I have no idea how to get my tabs and windows. I tried with a "download link" something or other, but it seemed to assume I was sync-ing to a phone, and didn`t work. Any way to get my tabs?

Certain fonts are displayed not as what I set them to in Firefox's settings.

At first, I thought it was a windows OS font related issue- it's not.

I've followed everything here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1323130 (The answer support link is inaccessible. But following the answer did not fix my issue.)

Also looked to see if any of my add-ons are affecting it. I've disabled them on the sites (in the screenshot) but the fonts are still displayed as attached. Checked to see if the add-on uBLOCK is disabling remote fonts, that feature is not checked so that's not the issue.

Please help, thank you.

Good morning, I have strange issue. Websites on my Manjaro Linux (GNOME desktop enviroment, using Wayland and Xorg) are not displaying correctly. Sometimes there are white fonts on white background-color, sometimes black fonts on black background. Sometimes where the bg should be white, it is black. I have Firefox Sync between my firefox browser on Windows 11 and Manjaro. Every setting in both browsers are the same. I tried to follow the instructions, like removing history, cache, cookies, turning off hardware acceleration etc. I just have no idea what to do now.

So, for awhile now when I go to some sites, the screen suddenly starts flashing, then it jitters and turns some light color (like a light green; not blue screen, not black). If I guess where the "X" is to shut down the tab that has the video, I can end this. Often, like on youtube, I find the problem is some ad video that was playing. The rest of the site is ok. But not always.

One site I wrote down a few days where it happened: https://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/eagles/eagles-face-giants-2022-playoff-opener?cid=sm_npd_rsn_phi_fb_mn&fbclid=IwAR3rGUEa0W8fElrzCWANSIUpti9VKlbn0iHyvcFsviajYExo5tcRSyWBJXA

scroll down to video and everything blinks, becomes unuseable

It happens in lots of places, though. It is not per se a YouTube problem or just a problem at NBCSports. I shell out to MS Edge, and it seems to handle everything fine, so I'm assuming at this point it is a browser issue.

One last point: after this happen the screen display is degraded even after I manage to shut down the offending tab or video. It takes a Log off/log back in or reboot to fix everything. The degradation takes the form of making the screen look a bit like a pointilist painting, although that's an exaggeration.

FF 109.0.1 64 bit Windows 11 NVidia GeFORCE RTX 3060 running studio driver 526.98 (I have switched periodically from / to their gaming driver, which doesn't seem to matter)

Any help, appreciated.

I've blocked Autoplay (Audio & Video) for *all* Web sites via the settings menu, but videos still continue to play automatically (abcnews.go.com, for instance).

I went to config:about, and made all the suggested changes I found in Mozilla support. Autoplay seems to be blocked now, but at the expense of Firefox going into an endless loop trying to load and play videos. While in this loop, Firefox is eating up 20% of my CPU sources, which comes to close to making my PC unusable.

I have Firefox 109.0.1, 64-bit.

This has been a chronic problem ever since I've used Firefox. Someone needs to take a MUCH deeper dive into why we can't block autoplay.

WHERE IS MY BOOKMARKS TOOLBAR??? Every time I update Firefox (now 109), I end up with all kinds of problems! NOW, I can't see my bookmark toolbar. All the help articles tells me how to show it or how to bookmark a page, which I already did multiple times. But this issue is never solved. If I can't get this resolved, I'm going to MS Edge.

Via google search, I clicked on https://company.bk.com/pdfs/nutrition.pdf, where it said: Invalid SSL certificate Error code 526 Visit cloudflare.com for more information.

[FYI, I don't care, but I never heard of cloudflare.]

I then click on 'additonal troubleshooting information.' on this failure page where it says:

Error 526 occurs when these two conditions are true:
   Cloudflare cannot validate the SSL certificate at your origin web server, and
   Full SSL (Strict) SSL is set in the Overview tab of your Cloudflare SSL/TLS app.

Resolution

For a potential quick fix, set SSL to Full instead of Full (strict) in the Overview tab of your Cloudflare SSL/TLS app for the domain.

So I go to Settings>Privacy and Security. First, no Overview tab. But under enhanced tracking protection, I have Standard selected and with strict one of the options, I think I'm where I supposed to be NO!. So I search for SSL, and there are no hits.

Thus I am in a total failure state, unable to do what should have taken 1 minute to easily find out!

WHY CAN'T I JUST TURN THIS OFF FOR THIS ONE INSTANCE???? I mean, it's Burger King, and all I NEED NOW is nutritional info for what I just ate and there is no way on that results page to temporarily turn off the problem. Cloudflare? CloutFailure is more like it. They have taken my choice to choose!

This so frustrating, such a simple thing, why isn't there something to temp turn off?
