I haven't installed any new Add-ons for over a year but suddenly today the Telegraph.co.uk website is only displaying images. I disabled all Add-ons, re started FF but that hasn't fixed it. Safari is okay though. Mac 10.11.6 and FF 78.10.1esr Thanks for any tips, can't do without a proper newspaper. Kryters.

How many are moving to a different browser thanks to Firefox/Waterfox incessant dialog prompting to 'update now'? There used to be an option to turn this off. No longer. Weekly or bi-weekly updates are rarely of any consequence anyway, so why must we endure prompt after prompt after prompt. Not everyone can stop what they're in the midst of to update on command. Speaking of incessant, I suggest Mozilla put more work into stopping incessant crashes. Now that would be an accomplishment. Rarely does an hour pass without my browser crashing. Say what you may about old Internet Explorer; at least it didn't crash all the time.

I'm trying to develop a simple addon using the Sessions API, so I wanted to play around a bit with the JS in the Browser Toolbox first. I have set devtools.chrome.enabled to true and pressed Ctrl+Shift+J to open the browser console. I'm able to run some JS (example: console.log("Hello world!") works as expected), but when I try to run something like sessions.getRecentlyClosed(), I get the following error message:

 Uncaught ReferenceError: sessions is not defined
    <anonymous> debugger eval code:1
    getEvalResult resource://devtools/server/actors/webconsole/eval-with-debugger.js:243
    evalWithDebugger resource://devtools/server/actors/webconsole/eval-with-debugger.js:167
    evaluateJS resource://devtools/server/actors/webconsole.js:1119
    evaluateJSAsync resource://devtools/server/actors/webconsole.js:1011
    makeInfallible resource://devtools/shared/ThreadSafeDevToolsUtils.js:103


I tried browser.sessions.getRecentlyClosed() with the same error message about "browser.sessions" not being defined. Anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it, or how to correctly import the Sessions API if that's what's needed?

Thanks!

Currently, I have configured my Privacy & Security settings in which all third-party cookies are blocked. This causes certain websites to break and become nonfunctional.

How do I configure my settings to which all third-party cookies are blocked by default, but for specific websites I choose they are not blocked?

I do not want to change my settings in which cookies are blocked only from websites I have not visited; because there are some websites I frequent that I still wish to block third-party cookies.

Thank you

Good Afternoon,

  On several sites I work on with form fields, there is an option to save the existing text then return and edit the message.  Now when the edit button is pressed, the fields are empty.  I have workarounds to do everything in one shot using a text editor, but it's not convenient and something I do regularly.

It started with an update in the past year, but worked previously. This is on an Ubuntu system running Firefox 89 (64 bit).

The settings are the default, with no additional add-ons at the moment.

Firefox can no longer play Netflix movies. Firefox loads the Netflix site. Firefox attempts to play the movie. Then, Firefox can't play the movie. Netflix says "Your browser is no longer supported." This happens every time there is a Firefox update! Do you guys not test your products in development before release? Please fix your product. I tried all your 'help' items.

I've tried to run this down for two hours and can find nothing to explain the behavior. I recently received a medical bill that contained the following paragraph: Pay online at www.mychart.utsouthwestern.edu Entering this in my Firefox Address/Search Bar yields the results in Addr/Search Bar _01.png. The same results display in Safari and Chrome, so it's not Firefox specific. If you've tried this without the "www", you know it works fine and the simple answer is, "Don't put the freaking www in your address bar!" I know, I know, but as most of you can attest, once you've opened the hood, it's tough to walk away until you've figured out how stuff happens. This only occurs when an address with dot separated words (mychart.utsouthwestern.com, or customercare.allstate.com) are used. A simple address (www.ifixit.com, for instance) goes to the proper page. My biggest question is how this is defaulting to, what appears to be, an ATT search bar? ATT does provide my broadband service and I am using an ATT modem/router (yeah, I know, eyeroll...), but nothing in my Preferences opens the door to this kind of event.

Any ideas on why it happens and, maybe, how I can stop it? Bothers me that with all my efforts to control my browsing exposure and almost 40 years of tech experience that something this inexplicable can occur.

BTW: In the old days, I'd have spent most of the night trying to figure this out, but now that I'm in my older days, I don't have the stamina to pull those marathon treks for enlightenment.
