Hello,

I am a college professor at University of New Haven, which uses the Canvas online learning system. Within Canvas, we have access to the Kaltura media content system where we can create, upload, and share videos with our students through the Canvas application.

This has worked fine until recently. Now, whenever I try to access my Kaltura media through Canvas, I get the following error message:

"It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies." (see attached photo for reference)

I assume there was a routine Firefox update sometime recently that imposed stricter restriction on third-party cookies. But I have followed all the instructions here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-cookies-firefox-tracking-protection?redirectslug=disable-third-party-cookies&redirectlocale=en-US), and I am still unable to access Kaltura through Canvas (I get the same error message).

FYI - I am able to access Kaltura through Canvas on Chrome, so I know this is a Firefox-specific issue. But I hate Chrome and want to keep using Firefox!

Is this something you can help me with?

Let me know - thanks!

When I use firefox, it gets slower and slower over time to the point where it's a chore just to type. And this is on a recent MacBook pro. Everything else is fast. But Firefox gets unusable. The UI should not be a bottleneck like this.

Retarting speeds it up for a while, but then it gets slow again in a few hours.

Is there some kind of profiling I can run that I can use for filing a bug report?

Hello, Firefox support team!

Could you help me, how can I ultimately, once for all the time, for all the modes restrict to open new windows? The problem is the Firefox browser open new windows if the browser was closed and Im open a link from a different application (cant solve that at all). Or it was opened but somehow for some sites it opens a window instead of tabs. To be honest it can be a big and annoying issue on mac, if me app in full screen mode. And in genereal also. It is something I dont expect from app. I tried all the variants I found or learned in about:config which a connected with windows. It not helped me at all.

For example, if I turn on system Dark Mode on my Mac, Firefox Reader's View automatically changes to Dark Mode as well. And vice versa to light-mode.

This issue has started to become a problem over the last couple of months. Several websites that I log into frequently are no longer working with Firefox, or are not fully working.

For example, I can't use Firefox for these websites at all. AA.com (gives me a screen that says it's down for maintenance) bankofamerica.com (it allows me to start the login process but when it attempts the 2FA it errors out. ATT.com (everything appears to work, except the chat feature. If I log into att using safari (for example) there is a chat box in the lower right corner. The chat box is not there when I use Firefox.

This is starting to become an issue (and is very annoying) to where I may have to change browsers either to Safari (eh) or Chrome (yuk).

Are some of my settings set wrong? Is there another fix? or......


Thank you Elliot ...
