As a Firefox user, I want to be able to whitelist websites as they continue to be impermissible to people using their website without having to give up all privacy, such that their website works.

Replication Steps: 1. Open Firefox Browser 2. Go to top left and click hamburger icon (3 horizontal lines) in top right under the close option 3. Click Settings 4. On left side click privacy and security 5. Locate permissions in the submenu 6. Location -> Settings 7. Add website into search bar and hit enter to add to whitelist

Current Result: Cannot add to whitelist and cannot utilize website with browser. Will be forced to use competitions browser.

Expected Result: Site would be added to whitelist and therefore allow use of a site that is arbitrarily adding forced location permissions because vpns are well... hurting their bottom line to be frank.

See screenshot. An answer typed into Quora waits forever but never finishes sending. I have to retry several times and sometimes I have to switch to Chrome for it to send. What I type seems to upload but when I press POST it never gets me a confirmation that it has been received, i.e. posted. If I reload the current page then it says I've typed an answer, do I want to edit it? I edit it and press POST, but it still takes forever. Sometimes it does work after a few times. This has been going on for at least 2 months or more. Chrome works.

Hi there, I have been using Firefox for over twenty years now, but the latest findings are frightening. I use openhab for my smarthome and the openhab cloud website was not rendering properly under Firefox, so I tried Chrome. The page loaded without any problems. I had this behavior on desktop, Android phone and Android tablet. Sometimes I could fix the problem by deleting the browser data, but not always. I did a lot of settings on the tablet and thought it was not responsive, but it turned out to be Firefox. With Chrome, the application responds directly on the first click. But the worst thing was that I had a conversation with Amazon using my laptop and was waiting for a response. I reloaded the page countless times with Ctrl+F5 until I tried Chrome. The response was immediate and I didn't see it until three days later. Since then I keep noticing things not loading or updating in Firefox.

I don't know what I should look for this three devices have the same bad behavior. Is there already an effort to fix this? If not, I'll have to bite the bullet and switch browsers. I don't like the idea because twenty years is a long time.

Best regards

Hi all. Some websites creates a little popup window in the top right corner of my browser "Log into your Google account" and I cannot figure how to make this PERMANENTLY stop doing it. I just click the "X" to avoid doing so, but I wish to have this stop happening before uninstalling my Firefox browser completely. I'm here only because I have lost patience with that feature and lost patience trying to figure out how to stop it. Please, help, anyone. Thank you.

For many months I keep having outages just in my home. There may be a week of perfect service and then a week of no internet, no TV, no service at all. I got a notice that everything was fixed at the end of last week. Everything was good and then there has been no service all this week. I am using my cell phone as a means of accessing the internet. This needs to be resolved for me. I have talked to support staff and have unplugged and plugged back in my wire to my modem. I have tried everything I know to do. There is something very, very wrong.

Company add on slug is already in use

I am reaching out to kindly request your assistance in addressing an issue I've encountered while attempting to acquire a slug for "wakatime". Unfortunately, the system is indicating that the chosen slug is already in use, and I am seeking guidance on how we might proceed.

The slug I had in mind holds significant relevance to my project, aligning perfectly with its identity. If possible, I would greatly appreciate your help in either releasing the current assignment of the slug or providing recommendations for an equally suitable alternative. Your expertise in this matter would be invaluable, and I am committed to working together to find a solution that maintains the essence of my project. Thank you for your time and consideration.

When I tried to print a few Firefox pages - one including a Google map that printed fine when I used Safari - my Brother MFC L6700DW printer would say, for about 10 seconds, that it was receiving data, and then that message would disappear without my printer printing anything. This happened with another website on Firefox as well.

Does anyone know what's going on? I normally have been able to print from Firefox.

Thanks! S

Today I was going to forward spam to reporting places. One must open View raw message. It would not open; Seemed rather proud of the fact that it had blocked a website from opening something.

Brings me to my point: I have never understood the need to open View raw message, go to that new tab, control A, control C, go back to the tab with the email opened, click forward, control V.

I believe that IF ONE CLICKS FORWARD, all of that should be automatically done. Forward SURE IT IS USED FOR MANY OTHER REASONS OUTSIDE OF REPORTING OF SPAM. However SHOULDN'T YOU BE HELPING OUT WITH THE REPORTING OF SPAM?

Felix

Post Script: And why? Just why? Why should View raw message be blocked?

When watching Youtube in full screen, mousing over bottom right corner of the screen activates some kind of a miniscule scroll down button. I assume this is an issue with Firefox since it does not occur in other browsers. I want to disable this functionality so when instinctively navigating to the bottom right corner I disable full screen, not scroll down.

Bank has changed access requirements to require geo-location when logging into account. Under Firefox settings, I found the geo-location settings screen; however, have not found how to add my bank's website for the purposes of allowing access to my geo-location when accessing their online banking services.

The only options listed were to delete 2 listed websites with geo-location access.

There is no add button to allow geo-location access when logging into my bank account?

Thanks for your assistance.

Regards,

Ed Terry
