Hello everyone, I was following a privacy guide and i changed the cookies settings in about:config . I set the value of network.cookie.cookieBehavior to 4, which according to this article means that total cookies protection is disabled. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/total-cookie-protection-and-website-breakage-faq

My questions are the following:

1- How do i enable total cookies protection after what i changed  ?


2-Which is better from a privacy point of view setting network.cookie.cookieBehavior to 4 or enabling total cookies protection?

Thank you all for taking the time to read my subject/questions .

Recently updated to version 105.0.1 and I've started to have problems with Twitch. I'm unable to login and keep getting the message: "Something went wrong. Please try again." so I cleared the cookies/site data. Still unable to login. I know this isn't an error with my account as I can login via Chrome with no issues. Then I tried downgrading to the previous version 104.0.2 and had no issues with Twitch. Most likely, this new version is creating an error with the Twitch site. Hopefully new updates will address this issue - in the meantime, hoping someone has a solution.

Hello, ever since we moved endpoints from Firefox ESR 91.13 to 102.3, it has become impossible to play any media with Firefox.

No video will play in youtube, for instance (it just loads endlessly as if it would start, but it doesn't).

Can't use radio websites either. Anything with a "play" button (video or sound) does nothing.

This has been tested with a clean profile, a clean install, after allowing autoplay in the settings.

Is there any info on what exactly changed between ESR 91 and 102 that might explain this ? There has been no system change, If I reinstall 91 instead it works again as usual.

No issues anywhere else on the endpoints (Edge, Windows), this is on Windows 10 if it makes any difference.

Tanks for any help on this.

It's kind of hard to describe aside from the title.

Only happens when I am using the drop down bookmarks toolbar. When I right-click on an item to bring up the menu, it flickers for an instant, then hides behind the bookmarks drop down menu. Ok, so I guess I could explain it a bit more.

But here's a video showing it more in detail. https://www.loom.com/share/a166451f9354463dbbb6d9faf57df315

I was trying to use the Private Mode with all the extensions disabled to see if that would solve the issue, but alas, it didn't help me isolate anything.

Recently my Firefox crashes sometimes when downloading a file for example from Yahoo mail. This is not happening always, but sometimes when downloading a file. I have the latest version of Firefox, Windows 10. I changed password, deleted cookies, did full virus scan, but the problem still persists. Is this an issue of the new version of Firefox and will be fixed with the new update of Firefox ? This is happening only with Firefox and not with other browsers.

I CAN'T ACCESS MY GMAIL OR ANY OTHER SEARCH ENGINE, CAN SOMEONE HELP WITH THIS

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

My work computer is behind a firewall that is a forward and reverse proxy. Firefox crashes fairly frequently but my work computer is not using and will not be using the forward proxy; that is for the web server. Therefore the crash reports so not get submitted. There is an error message: "There was a problem submitting your report." Is there another way to submit them?

Suddenly yesterday Firefox became very sluggish and showed "very high" power usage in Win Task Manager. I tried the recommended troubleshooting but to no avail so I did a refresh. Still no change so I tried uninstalling and doing a fresh install. Then another refresh but still the same so unfortunately Firefox is now almost unusable.

Attached SS shows 9 processes open with just the one tab open and the very high power usage.

Any way to fix this?

checking box within a Tab on yahoo mail will immediately open that entry and then freeze further operation until the screen is shut down. This happens on my wife's HP lap top i5 Pavilion 4.00 ram. ie: inbox tab will show a number of email - a dozen or so - followed by grey empty areas. The tab indicates 100+ total in inbox. Selecting one box opens the email but locks up any activity on that email & must be shut down to exit. The identical situation happens when I access my email on her machine. She is using Firefox 105.0.1 HOWEVER, on my machine, HP desktop AMD A8 8.00 Ram, both email addresses do not lock up, multiple boxes can be checked and work as expected. My desk top uses Firefox 104.4 This began happening within the past couple of weeks and I can not debug the situation. Any pointers ??

HP 17" laptop with Windows 10, Firefox v105.0.1, MSN home page (have had it for years}: "Crash" or "Hang"?

When opening second or third tab (following news/magazine articles), I will get three or four "tops of a pages" and cannot exit. Mouse unresponsive. No error messages. Display will flicker during and after getting completely off of internet. Before this, display is fine. To get out, I go to my email tab and open a new tab then exit unresponsive tabs.

This all started a couple of days after a "another" Microsoft update. I uninstalled the last update but that did not help. I then searched for all available Microsoft updates and down loaded three of them.... no improvement to the issue. Ran PC Matic scan but no improvement. Several restarts during these actions.

I'm not a computer guy so any fix needs to be simple. Should I just uninstall Firefox and reinstall? I do have some add-ons but can't remember what they are. Will cross that bridge when necessary.

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

When I try to access my Telstra account using Firefox, either at telstra.com/myaccount or at telstra.com/paybill it brings me to the Register page where I enter my telstra user name. I click Continue and land on a blank white page and that is the end of it, can't go any further.

I talked to Telstra, they told me to clean all cookies for those two sites. It didn't change anything, still get a blank page.

Then tried with Chrome, it works perfectly, I can access my account on both websites.

Telstra tells me it is a Firefox issue. It does not make any sense to me because I have used Firefox for many years, since I had Windows 98, and never had a problem.

I am using Win 10 and the latest Firefox version. This problem started 3 months ago. Before then I had no issues. I accessed my telstra account once a month to pay it. Hope you can help. Thank you, Carmen
