For some reason when I upload a file as a Yahoo mail email attachment either Yahoo Mail or Firefox does not open the directory I last used to upload a file. Instead it seems to have got stuck on some arbitrary directory. This is SO annoying as I generally have multiple files to upload usually from the same directory, which means, now, that each time I have change from that arbitrary directory to the directory I want to upload from. How can I get Yahoo Mail/Firefox to behave as it always has? Which was, that when I uploaded a file as a Yahoo mail email attachment, it opened the directory folder I last used to upload from.

This is interesting, Firefox has a feature where clicking in a Password box brings up the option to"Use a securely generated password" option... which is cool, except that for some reason it's not letting me generate a NEW one on this website I'm on, it keeps giving me the exact same password as my old one!

This is problematic because the website won't let me re-use a previously used password when resetting my password!

How do I tell Firefox to generate a brand new securely generated password?

Firefox 92 causes cross domain authentication errors

I currently run several environments for Dynamics 365 products. Our clients can choose to use our authentication (ADFS 4.0) or we set up a SSO option for them (normally also ADFS of some flavor). The piece that is similar between both is that the domain they authenticate to would not be the same as the application they are necessarily using. For example my clients have a mixture of on premise and cloud deployments but if they are SSO only pull their tokens from one domain.

Anyways the real TLDR as I can determine is as follows:

Has anyone seen a problem with firefox 92 stripping out headers? My scenario is I have an AD FS server that I use for single sign on with a domain name that is different from the application that it federated with. When I attempt to login using Firefox, the traffic flows as: 1. Hit the app url and get 302 redirected to the IDP 2. enter credentials at the IDP and get redirected to the app url 3. the app has an internal and external claims URL, so the internal claims url 302 redirects me to the external url 4. FF brings up the external url, but does NOT pass the MSISAuth and MSISAuth1 cookies from the IDP 5. The app thinks I've not authenticated, so it 302 redirects me back to the IDP 6. The IDP sees the MSISAuth and MSISAuth1 cookies, so it knows it authenticated me and it 302 redirects me back to the app wash, rinse, repeat for 5 times until AD FS realizes that I've done this 5 times, then it throws an error at me to stop the loop. This was working fine in FF 91 and it currently works in Chrome and Edge. The expected flow is almost the same, except that the app get's the cookies presented to it from AD FS. I was thinking this was something to do with Enhanced Tracking Protection. When I selected Custom and unchecked all the options (I think this disables ETP) I still get the cookies stripped from the header. I re-enabled ETP with standard protections and manually added the URLs using the steps outlined at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1432644#c27. Is this a bug where FF doesn't honor the settings to disable ETP in V92? The reason I was thinking that ETP was to blame is the IDP has a domain of IDP.example and the app has the URL's of internalclaim.app and externalclaim.app.

I feel like I am missing something obviously here but I can't find it. If I create a CRM deployment using the same domain as our ADFS servers it works fine. If I use what our public designation is, it fails. SSO obviously fails. It only started after upgrading to 92 and that is consistent amount all of our clients. I have tried to go through every advance config that was touched with the 92 upgrade and nothing there seems to help. We compared our UAS to a friend of ours who is not having issues since the 92 release and they look the same. If this was a system 92 problem I would expect the internet to be exploding by now but it is not. It makes me think there is something I am missing in our fundamental set up but for the life of me I can't identify a missing update, compatibility issue, known issue blah blah blah. Edge, Chrome, Safari they all still work fine. It is just the Firefox 92 update that all of a sudden killed our authentication.

I recently changed my browser from chrome to fire fox but all my passwords are saved on chrome. I tried to import them on firefox but nothing gets imported from chrome. There is no autofill option for passwords here. I clicked on the three dots and did everything it said on the website but still the error message keeps popping up saying " An error occurred while trying to save this password". I tried going in the Passwords option and doing it manually but then the error message comes every time. Im using Firefox on my laptop.

I remember from past rodeos that I need to know the precise name of the cookies. But now when I check which cookies are added when I login, I can only see them grouped by the main website title--nytimes.com and I see that they have added 7 cookies. But I cannot see individual cookies.

How can I see the cookies to copy their addresses for the 'exceptions' table for data management to allow the right ones to be retained; OR just tell FF to allow my 3 preferred sites to stay 'always' logged in when I reopen FF?

I searched and searched how to add FF to my authenticator so I could get the code to set up sync and/or 2FA. FINALLY, someone gave this answer: When you enable 2FA then you get a QR code that you need to scan with an Authenticator app that generates a 6-digit code that you need to enter to confirm that 2FA is working.

The answer was "scan with the AUTHENTICATOR APP!!" I was just scanning it with the phone. Duh on me.

I'm posting this to help others. Sorry it's not a question per se.

Still trying to figure out what is wrong after refresh of Firefox.

I cannot get my handful of preferred websites to remain logged in when closing and reopening Firefox.

I have FF set to clear cookies and data on closing, but this handful of sites are listed as exceptions.

After reopen FF, the relevant cookies are not sticking. This used to work better.

I redownloaded FF and no improvement.

I'm thinking conflicting settings or....?

In Chrome, the browser allows you to monitor all events fired on the window by typing "monitorEvents(window)" in the console. Firefox has no such function (that I can find). Can someone tell me how to do the same thing in the Firefox console? Otherwise, what is the JS event that gets fired when zooming text only on the browser? Normal zoom fires the resize event, but when text is zoomed it isn't as straightforward. I know that I could alternatively check the font size on the element, but that is not an event. Thanks!

When viewing extensions in the overflow menu, items become cutoff. Sometimes a scrollbar will be displayed, allowing you to view the rest. At other times, you are not able to navigate to the other information at all.

Hi! I use Firefox on Ubuntu 20.04.3. I tried to speed up video on Sharepoint. Right click -> speed -> 2.0 and nothing happend. When I right click -> speed again, I saw that speed still 1.0. Then I went to google, found that Sharepoint allow speed up videos only in HTML5 player. Then I knew that to do that in Firefox I should disable Hardware acceleration, so I did it, but it didn't help. OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco add-on is activate.

Then I decided that's Ubuntu. I install ubuntu-restricted-extras, ffmpeg packages (to support h.264 video), restarted, but again that didn't work.
