I am located in an area wherre mobiles cannot be used because there is no signal. I have been trying to send sync to a USB memory stick but Firefox will not allow me to do this. Firefox insists that sync can only be sent to mobile devices. I am using Firefox on a desktop with Windows 10.

Every 2 to 3 days sometimes longer, Firefox will randomly reset itself and close out all windows and tabs to a single window and different search engine. Restore last session is never available when this happens even though I have that selected and checked and it does work when I manually close out windows and tabs myself so i know that preference is selected. My search engine preferences are always reset and have to restore defaults as well. Mac os Big Sur 11.2

Thanks to anyone who can help me solve this sudden mystery. Long time user of firefox on macbook pro and mac towers.

Hi everyone,

After the 85.0.0 update and still now with 85.0.1 and 85.0.2 firefox crashes. It's usually happened with clicking a link that'll take action outside of firefox (not a url link but a download attachment link in gmail or a print link). I've also had it happen with placing links from the search bar to the bookmark bar, and just recently opening up the 'show all bookmarks' window.

It'll hang, i won't be able to click anything, and then it'll give me the 'close window' screen. It's never fully crashed and given me an error message. I start up firefox again, restore the session and everything is back to where it was.

I've tried refreshing. I've tried creating a new profile. I've tried uninstalling and downloading 85 direct from mozilla. Nothing seems to be working. I'm going to see how it does for a bit in safe mode, but all the add-ons I have I've had way before the 85 update and all of them are recommended by mozilla.

I'm all ears (eyes?) for solutions!

To Mozilla Management_Please stop the constant updates>Why do we have to update constantly? ie: SteveKessler SteveKessler 11/20/14, 3:27 PM

We run a very nice internet business and 5 computers keep it running strong however we are continuing to update almost weekly. It has become a hassle to use Firefox. When we first started using Firefox years ago we might get an update 2 times a year now it appears to be 2 times a month. Please let us know why and if there is something we can do to change this. Updating and make unnecessary changes is very costly to our business and if it continues we may have to change browsers. We love Firefox but the updates must stop be so frequent. We do not have the time to keep updating nor do we want any computer updating without someone watching it. We do not want automated updates. On update was the worst when you made all the unnecessary changes. It took me all day to all 5 computers to look alike so everyone could use them no matter where they work. Please consider yourself a top browser and not a fly by night. This is a professional company so please act like it, walk like and turn this around. I am wondering if someone from Microsoft has started to help you?

SteveKessler SteveKessler Question owner 11/20/14, 4:22 PM

Two different answers to one question. I am asking why does Firefox constantly make updates? Why not leave everything alone? I understand if it is necessary but about 95% of the changes are b/c someone thinks they are helping. It is broken so please stop updating. If there needs to be an update due to hacker, i.e. then okay but all these other updates is not making it any better. People think if we make this change it will help others when all it does is make us keep updating and we do not use the new idea. We just want a fast browser without the gimmicks. Please consider that you already had a great browser and leave it alone.

SteveKessler SteveKessler Question owner 11/20/14, 6:56 PM

We're not interested in making changes when nothing is broken. You had Notice the word HAD the best browser on the internet! Now it is another browser competition for what? Just leave it alone. It does not need unnecessary upgrades. Making changes to make changes is not improvement. Keep it up and you will run off everyone. I know more about this than you think. Worked 35 years in this industry and know more than most will ever learn. I know if you keep changing just to change it will break down and you will not get the people back. You are not justifying the means and customers are very finicky. You are very close to losing it all. Too many people trying to show they know something without counting the cost.

hello,

I use SAS University Edition to learn how to improve my SAS knowledge.

It's installed via a VM and once installed, you just have to type http://http://localhost:10080/ in the browser to open the SAS session. It worked for months, until new releases of Firefox. I disabled the HTTPS only mode on Firefox.

Now I get a Firefox error message "Cette adresse est interdite - Cette adresse utilise un port réseau inhabituel pour la navigation web. Par mesure de sécurité, Firefox a abandonné la requête." Forbidden address, due to unusual network port usage.

How can I log on my virtual machine? Where are the parameters that restrict the access to http sites and how can I manage them?

Thank you for your help, PY

Strange behaviour when copying images on Mac

Long time listener, first time caller... :) [Seriously have been using and loving Firefox/Mozilla since 2004-2005, before that was Netscape Navigator, this is the first time I can recall having an issue that I can't find already written up and solved. Hence, this post.]

I've been having some odd issues with Firefox (85.0.2 64-bit) on my Intel Mac (Big Sur 11.2.1) for the past few months, and this morning decided to dig in deeper.

The backstory: When I’ve wanted to copy and image and paste it into Apple Messages, the images sometimes don’t send because Messages doesn’t support TIFF, WEBP, or PNG formats when sending to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account (aka using standard MMS like to Android phones). So, I then have to convert the failed image to JPG, delete the failed message, and drag the saved JPG image file into Messages and can then resend it.

The issue: Today, I discovered that when I copy a JPG image from Firefox, and paste it into Apple messages, it seems that it doesn’t send because it appears to be either copied or pasted as a different format than the original image?

To reproduce:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “View Image Info”
  3. Right-Click on the JPEG image and select “Copy Image”
  4. Paste into Messages to send to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account
  5. Hit enter to send
  6. Wait a few seconds for failure
  7. Click on failure Info
  8. Right-Click on image and select Open
  9. Preview shows the file as TIFF not JPG

To simplify:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “Copy Image”
  3. Open Preview and select “New from Clipboard”
  4. Select “Tools -> Show Inspector”
  5. Preview shows the file as PNG not JPG

What I’ve tried: Copy & paste of same image from Firefox - Safe Mode fails - So, doubt it is something in my Firefox config Copy & paste of same image from Safari works - So, doubt it is something MacOS related However, copy & paste of same image from Chrome fails too - So, maybe it is something MacOS related?

Any suggestions on what to try next?

I find it really bad, if i post a bug and you just archive without even try to fix the problem! It makes me extremely angry! Bad behavior!

Please stop that and re-open the case.

Jan Ps. same system (Lenovo Thinkpad X300 with Xubuntu 16.04LTS 64bit (account A) )now running Firefox 85.0.1 64bit can now print, I can't find any mentioning in release notes to how previous version 75.0 and now this one is different and why this one now can print.

It would be nice to get this solved, since other people here has had this one too and it seems to jump between versions and OS(linux an windows).

I'm using a Surface Pro 7, running Win10H. Firefox had a brief period when I first installed it where the on screen keyboard would appear and work, that stopped after a few hours and has not worked since. I fiddled with the settings on both Firefox and my surface, though nothing has changed. Un/re-installing did not help, thought it could reset something. Any fixes or advice would be greatly appreciated.

For clarification, the Accessibility Menu on-screen keyboard does work, but the tablet-specific larger keyboard does not function. It does open and type in other applications.

I cannot seem to control where a new bookmark folder goes. Each time I do this, it creates a subfolder inside another folder. I have to remember which folder it went into, then go into Show All Bookmarks and manually drag my new folder out so it's in the main Bookmarks Menu list.

It's only a slight inconvenience but annoying nonetheless. Even if I make sure that "Bookmarks Menu" is selected, it will still put my new folder inside another folder.

Is there a way to prevent this?

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.
