I tried opening Add-ons and themes by using the shortcut keys Ctrl+Shift+A, but it did not work. The add-ons tab didn't open. Nothing happened. Checked if there is any issue with the keys too, but they're working perfectly fine.

Good day , For some unknown reason to me my HP printer will not connect to WI FI using Firefox but will connect if using Edge (which by the I hate and resist using at all costs) . I have tried trouble shooting to the best of my limited ability via HP and online , but to no avail. It was working with Firefox the last time I needed to use it, but not now. Hopefully someone can help me , but I have very limited computer skills and a lot of the short forms acronyms and computer gobbly gook baffle me . I ask that with any answer please .........KISS (keep it simple stupid) it . Please no one take offense to the term (KISS) , I did not come up with it , but it seems the simpleness has left the building these days.

Thank you Ken

Hi. Opened the browser yesterday to find that the shortcut buttons that sit in a new tab had all dissapeared, and it wouldn't let me manually add new ones (i just enter the name and url and then it stays black after hitting 'add'). The browsing history is also gone, as are all of the images for the sites in the bookmark bar.

I've looked for an 'old firefox data' on the desktop incase it went there but there isnt one, i've checked profiles to see if a new one was made but thats not it either. Does anyone know whats happened or what i can try next?

Thanks

I use & want to continue using Firefox Password Manager but, since updating to Version 90.0.2 (64Bit), The "Please enter your primary password" window keeps opening about every 15 minutes (I have not timed it). I have already entered my primary password & used the auto login with several webpages. Then the login window will popup & I will have to re-enter the password before I can use the features. I am running Windows 10, with the latest updates installed.

I never delete history! But I noticed this since long time ago, e.g. I want to go on a website - I was recently on (if I closed it already) but it is not in immediate search history - it happened to me multiple times!

Also now: I was searching for one keyword a lot, like 50 times and in history are barely like 7 hits. No idea why it is not there!!!

Please help.

I think I'm about to give up with this 'get help' thingy...everytime I press Enter/return carriage it disappears!

I don't like update 89. If you want a detailed reason from me then let's just say I have old eyes and I agree with all the complaints I've read so far. So, as I always make a recovery point before updating, I've rolled back my computer to 88 and will be staying there, thank you.

Now I would like a way to stop the annoying update notice. Please don't tell me to make files and scripts and mess with the registry...I mean, for goodness sakes, where's the button or the "opt out" thingy?

I will not be updating again until I read that I can keep the look I had without having to 'add-on' or try themes or heaven forbid make my own.

If security changes were Firefox's reasons for updating fair enough...but how did the look of a piece of software become a security issue? If this is 'new fresh' I don't want it, I'll just stay old and stale thanks.

POST action turns into a GET, which is incorrect.

Using Apache2 to serve web pages.

Debian Linux 5.10.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.46-2 (2021-07-20) x86_64 GNU/Linux

The following appears in the access.log:-

127.0.0.1 - - [28/Jul/2021:15:17:42 +1000] "POST /scripts_php/memb_login.php HTTP/1.1" 302 314 "http://dev.webtest.info/htmlpages/login.html" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0" 127.0.0.1 - - [28/Jul/2021:15:17:42 +1000] "GET /scripts_php/memb_login.php HTTP/1.1" 200 499 "http://dev.webtest.info/htmlpages/login.html" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0"

The form method is POST and the action is to call a PHP script which expects a POST array. The "302 314" appears to be correct, but, a GET is returned immediately.

According to w3.org:-

Note: RFC 1945 and RFC 2068 specify that the client is not allowed

     to change the method on the redirected request.  However, most
     existing user agent implementations treat 302 as if it were a 303
     response, performing a GET on the Location field-value regardless
     of the original request method. The status codes 303 and 307 have
     been added for servers that wish to make unambiguously clear which
     kind of reaction is expected of the client.

This has just started to occur after a recent upgrade to Firefox. It might be caused by the browser but there might be some other explanation or configuration setting that needs tweaking. Could somebody please help.

Thanks.

I receive excel files to my outlook email in which I open or download them to my desktop. For some reason out of the blue I am unable to save these attachments. The option screen to save does not appear. Every time I hit the download button, firefox quickly opens up a new tab but then it instantly closes. And the file doesn't appear on my desktop, which is my saved files location. When I attempt this on google chrome, it works just fine. Anyone know what could be causing this? I am up to date on my Firefox version.

Every time I switch on my laptop, I found that it was heating up without opening anything. I open the task manager and I see that Firefox is running and using a huge amount of the CPU and apparently consuming a lot of the battery as well. Firefox is not there in my startup list. I have reinstalled and installed multiple times. I have tried changing toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. I have tried changing browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false.

If I do open Firefox now, without ending the task that is already running, and then close it later, it is still running in the background. Only way to stop this task running is to end task and I have to do it every time I switch on my Laptop.

I hope I have described the problem well, please let me know what other details I can provide. I am putting a screenshot of the task running as well. Thanks in advance
