Hello everyone,

I have a problem. I have seen that there have been discussions about this in the past. Unfortunately I have not found a solution and the discussions are all archived.

Now to the problem: Various pages have no favicon in Firefox when I drag them into the bookmark bar as a bookmark. However, when the page is active in the tab, a favicon is visible there.

The problem does not seem to be unique to me. Several people have tested it. It also seems to be a problem in Firefox only. In other browsers, this problem does not occur.

What can website owners do to fix this problem?

Here is an example of a site where I have the problem. www.organspende-register.de

Many thanks in advance. Best regards

I can no longer use Duolingo (macOS Monterey 12.7.5) because the pages get stuck loading. I've cleared the cache and cookies for it and it still doesn't work. In addition, I've submitted multiple bug reports to Duolingo. Apparently the developers there pay zero attention to these. I want to use Duolingo on my iMac and I love using Firefox as my browser. WHAT is the problem and how can I fix it???

Hello,

I just found out I cannot longer drag an icon from the search bar to the my bookmark toolbar. I loved this feature because it would let me organize my bookmarks with just icons, and have them readily available. But now, I can't do it, not even dragging the URL across the toolbar! Why? Is there a way to fix this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am using Firefox version 126.0.1 (64-bit) on MacOS Ventura 13.0. I cannot interact with any Nature journal webpages (https://www.nature.com/ , https://www.nature.com/neuro/ , etc). I can only scroll, no clicking on links, highlighting or anything else you might expect. Not sure if this is specific to my computer/browser/extensions or if others are experiencing this and what steps I might take to resolve?

I have noticed a few websites will go to blank pages. Today, while trying to log into my Microsoft account, I was able to enter the login id and then the password, but when I went to enter the website I arrived at a blank page. I tried the control-shift-R fix, from this website, but it was of no value.

When I try to login to my Social Security account after pulling up the Soc Sec site (ssa.gov), I get this message:

"Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit."

I tried waiting a couple of days and attempting a login again. I also tried turning off my VPN, using a new tab, refreshing the site and restarting my laptop. I do not get this message when I use Safari to login, but I want to use Firefox.

Thanks for your help in fixing this problem.

As of a few days ago whenever I start Firefox the window appears with the Bookmarks sidebar panel already opened. I click the "X" on the sidebar and it will close - until the next time I start Firefox. If I choose Menu->View->Sidebar->Bookmarks and uncheck it the panel will close - until the next time I start Firefox. No matter how the Bookmarks sidebar is closed, it will always reappear when Firefox is restarted. Even if I switch to some other sidebar, Bookmarks will replace it on startup.

I've searched about:config and found no setting which seems to control sidebar behavior on startup.

I assume this is the result of some recent update. Is there no longer a way to permanently disable the Bookmarks sidebar?

On a laptop running Windows 11, all videos I play in Firefox have been strangely dark and orange. Depending on their original appearance, this can make them unwatchable.

This only affects videos in Firefox, and only on this laptop. Chrome, Windows video player (and Firefox on my other devices) do not share this issue. The issue affects all monitors I connect the laptop to.

I have attempted: -A thorough search of Firefox settings and found nothing related. -Refresh and reinstall of Firefox -in about:config

   gfx.color_management.native_srgb to true
   Confirmed ui.videoDynamicRange was set to to 0

None of these has helped. According to all the evidence I can find online, a similar issue was caused by a problem with HDR video files and fixed in an update 2 years ago, but I am running version 127.0 and am up to date.

Hello!

I am a heavy user of Firefox: daily & around 8 hours a day.

I usually use alt+shift+left/right-arrow to select a few words to the right / to the left. With the latest update (mandatory because this is a work-administered) laptop, the new behavior is that tabs are changed.

I want any solution to revert this to standard (past) behavior (preferably not an extension). Looked around in about:config but could not find anything to toggle on/off.

This is highly annoying as I've had this workflow for literally years. Even opening this ticket I encountered the issue more than 3 times as I was phrasing the message and had to delete & rewrite some stuff while also have other tabs open in the same Firefox window.

Would highly appreciate your timely response!

Thanks a lot! -- John

Firefox won't update to version 127 on macOS 10.15.7

I am running macOS 10.15.7 and Firefox won't upgrade past ESR v. 115 to the "regular" version 127.

Alternately, downloading the Firefox v. 127 installer and running won't update ESR v. 115 nor will it import bookmarks or data from the previous version ESR 115. Firefox v. 127 installs and starts as if I am a new user without any update or import option so that all previous settings, passwords, and data from ESR v. 115 are lost.

Is there a work-around for the upgrade to keep continuity, settings, bookmarks, and data when migrating to v. 127? Thanks!
