Hey firefox community,

I have an issue where certain add-ons are not loading their icons (greyed out), and after a computer shutdown, or simply closing the window, the icons don't seem to stay in the overflow menu (or the place where you can store addons if you don't want them on the toolbar or the overflow menu). my only option to be able to use the extension is to "re-enable" the extension from the add-on menu.

I've read somewhere on a support thread that it may have something to do with adblockers, and although I do have adguard, I'm not 100% sure if that's the issue, as I tried disabling adguard when loading firefox, and I seemed to only be able to load the add-ons correctly once, but not again (to be fair, not a lot of testing went into this hypothesis or test).

if there is some kinda issue with adguard, I would love to know what I need to do to solve this issue, and if its something else, I would also love to know what else I would need to do, short of a clean install of firefox or something similar, as I have a few add-ons with custom settings, and resetting all of that would be a pain to redo.

thanks for your help.

PS, any additional info needed can be sent over, just may take some time

Any ideas to Print Actual Size using Firefox Browser?

This worked fine yesterday --- version 84 ----got the notice of a new version and did the upgrade and restarted Firefox. Been crashing ever since.

Running the same Extensions, same profile, same computer, etc. Same thing happens in Safe Mode.

Sometimes I get the ugly tab closed --- send report and "Restore Previous Tab" But it does not restore the previous tab.

Oh, and I do not have a Chrome folder, etc.; no special changes from the stock Firefox.

Could this be a bug in the new release, version 85??

Thanks

hey i have firefox 8.5 - and a problem since v8.4 and present. Web pages load very slowly - the whole browser is very slow, the load on the frame RAM and CPU is reaching its zenith with the windows open. In one word the browser has become useless. Anticipating responses - 1. In safe mode - browser speeds up slightly, but websites still have lags and take a long time to load. 2. I reinstalled firefox - the errors continued. 3. I turned on firefox without logging in and with add-ons disabled - the browser worked with the errors described above. 4. I turned on firefox and logged into the profile, but turned off the add-ons - firefox - still has errors; I turned on a generation of additions (recommended) - firefox still has bugs. 5. My antivirus is not blacklisted by firefox - and I have no worms etc. 6. Standard or changed settings - firefox doesn't work well. Any suggestions or advice? Websites like FB, YT and others are simply unloadable with such lags. thanks.

I've been trying to access some resources hosted locally with a web extension for testing, but I've been encountering CORS errors. I've added localhost to the permissions field of the extension's manifest.json, but I still encounter the CORS errors. I saw that bugs 1220810 and 1488740 addressed similar bugs in FF84, but Firefox still won't let me send the requests. If it helps at all, I've been trying to access the resources hosted on localhost from an https context, but I was under the impression that those bugs should have fixed that issue?

Ideally I wouldn't need to implement having the server respond with the CORS headers since it only seems to be a problem with Firefox in a local context. Accessing the local resources through Chrome works, and accessing the resources through the internet with the domain name in the permissions field of a production build of the extension's manifest.json works in Firefox. Is there a way to make Firefox disregard CORS enforcement for localhost for temporary extensions?

It is impossible to contact Firefox. I use Firefox as my main browser. When I logged into my laptop this morning, it said if Firefox was loading slow to click the link for an update, which I did. However, once the update was done, ALL of my saved logins were gone; AND, I cannot create any new saved logins or save any logins and passwords. The "help" pages are useless because nothing addresses this. Why were ALL my saved passwords deleted? How can this be fixed?

Can anyone tell me, or teach me how to tell, what's happening on the website 'http://www.syscodiscountfoodcenter.com' on the "Products" button? Whenever I click on it, the address bar just becomes 'http://www.syscodiscountfoodcenter.com/#' but nothing happens. I suspect that this is being blocked by some type of security or protection blocker, but I don't know how to determine what.

Ultimately, what I'd like to do is determine exactly what protection is being violated, then turn off this specific protection for just this website, so that I could order products. Can anyone show me a link or page that would describe how to determine what's happening?

Thank you for your help and advice.

Hi, we have encountered with the CSP issue in Firefox:

We have the following CSP <meta> tag in our application:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Security-Policy" content="default-src 'self';

                  script-src  'self' 'unsafe-eval';
                  style-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline';
                  base-uri 'self';
                  frame-src 'self';
                  media-src 'self';
                  navigate-to 'self';
                  form-action 'self';
                  object-src 'none';
                  connect-src 'self'">

As you see, we did not specified 'unsafe-inline' nor in script-src, nor in default-src. Which means that inline scripts like <script>alert(1)</script> should not be allowed to execute. But it still works in Firefox and we get an alert popup.

In Chrome and Edge the policy works fine, and blocks the script execution.

Please assist on the issue.

With respect, Victorz
