I am using FF on a Windows 11 desktop. When I try to log into familysearch.org using FF, Avast detects that I am being redirected to https://590-buk-726.mktoresp.com. I have used both Avast and FF for years, and this is the first time this has happened. FamilySearch is a very legitimate genealogy site. I contacted Avast and they refreshed FF, and I was able to log in ok, but when I tried it again I got the same warning. I cleared all cookies - same problem. I deleted FF and re-installed - same problem. I am not getting this warning when I use MS Edge. Has anyone seen anything like this? What should I do? Thanks, Mike

Recently I activated 2FA on Firefox. I scanned the barcode by Google authenticator, to make it my code generator.

I'm now trying to enter Firefox on my laptop. After typing my password, when I try to enter one of the generated Google Authenticator codes, I constantly get a response "Invalid code".

I had to use one of the backup codes (out of the 8), and managed to enter my account on the laptop, but none of the logins and passwords were found there (it's empty).

My first question is why does Firefox reject the codes received from Google Authenticator (do I have to cancel my 2FA and define it once again? but I did everything by the book, with GA, and it seemed fine the other day).

My second question: I finally managed to enter my account with one of the eight backup code. Why are there no passwords etc? Aren't they automatically drawn from my usual (existing) account?

The laptop runs Win 10. I installed the 2FA on my main computer, which runs Win 11.

Thank you very much in advance, Eldad

Hi Mozilla,

The File System API is already available to all Chromium-based browsers, and also on Safari Tech Preview version. It is essential to create web apps for users. As seen on Mozilla documentation, many features of the API are already there, but these are not: window.showDirectoryPicker window.showOpenFilePicker window.showSaveFilePicker'

Will the full API set be available soon?


Best regards,

Dan

Firefox was working well on HTTP websites until a few days ago, but now HTTPS-Only Mode seems to be permanent. Despite changing settings to 'Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode', when HTTP sites are selected I get the same message as for 'HTTPS-Only Mode'. Also, if I select 'Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows' and add exceptions, I get the same result.

When writing reviews in Google Maps when you click post pictures from your computer (allowing one to browse your computer to find pictures to post) the tab crashes.

This occurs on other websites as well where one would browse the computer to attach documents, photos or videos. Heck, it even happens with this site (selecting browse to post picture causes firefox to crash).

This did not occur prior to updating to 115.0

Hello! I have used Firefox on and off so I don't have a time frame of when this would have started exactly, but I have had some random completely black screens on both of my monitors dating back to at least 2-3 weeks ago that can only be fixed by powering down the entire PC. I've reinstalled my (NVIDIA) GPU drivers, rearranged display-port cables and just about anything before finally finding a fix, switching to edge. So far I've gone a week without black screening when with Firefox I'd get around 4 give or take a week (some days getting to 3 alone). I don't know what could cause it but I have noticed it only happens when first starting a video. Mostly YouTube but other video sites seem to have also caused it occasionally, I would just like to know what could be causing this, as I do prefer Firefox vastly and would like to switch back as soon as I can.

Will provide anything else as necessary!

I'm having issues with the cursor when opening a new tab and I've tried a few different fixes and none are really working.

When I open a new tab the cursor goes immediately to the start of the homepage URL which is not helpful as if I type it just retains the URL after what I've typing(See Image). I've tried playing around with about:config to get the cursor to populate into the google search bar on the browser home screen but, it doesn't work.

I've also tried setting the new tab page to blank but, then sometimes it doesn't search google even though it says it should and says URL unrecognised(see the other images).

Why is this happening, I just want to be able to not have to manually delete the URL to search using the search bar and this seems like really basic functionality to me.

This is my second email to you....

I just switched to Firefox from Chrome, because Chrome was crashing all the time.

All I want to do is sync my computer, laptop, phone and Ipad's reading list. I want to be able to see an article on one device, add to the reading list, and have it on all devices.

I'm logged in under the same name on all, and it says sync is on, but the reading lists are different.

Can someone help me? My phone number is [removed phone# from public support forum], email is [removed email from public].

Trying to restore from "sessionstore.backup" - no result. Trying from synced - oh sure CRAP IS TURNED OFF like always for NO reason

Thanks a lot, douchebag morons. Hope you all die + anyone suggesting to copy "sessionrestore" gets testicle/boob cancer + anyone suggesting to turn sync on can eat my crap

Greetings Firefox Support/CommunityL

While reconnecting one of my computers to my Firefox account I saw at the top of the Settings Page: "Your settings are being managed by your organization". Problem is that I don't belong to any organizations or enterprises having anything to do with my online life. I have been hacked in the past and am paranoid when I see something that doesn't make sense. When I click on the link (trusting that it is indeed from you), it takes me to your Enterprise Policy page showing the following:


Active Policy Name Policy Value

DNSOverHTTPS Enabled false Locked true

I always use secure DNS (DOH or DOT) on everything - network adapters, routers (except the ISP one whose default I can't figure out to circumvent) etc. but on the browser setting pages I am only given the option of having it off: the default, increased, and max protection options are greyed out and cannot be chosen. I guess that explains the policy values but who locked it? My only guess is that is use a Surfshark VPN and realize that in so doing I am using Surfshark's DNS servers but I believe I had this problem before using the VPN. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

Dorando keyconfig isn't current. Shortkeys won't even install and probably won't do what I want anyway. AutoHotkey will do it, but I'd rather not use it for this.

Does anyone know how I can get a config.js to open the Library when I hit Ctrl+Shift+B?

All images, webm, gif etc. are loading, seemingly, exactly 20% upscaled compared to the real resolution of the media. I'm using a 4k TV (S95B), but I have desktop scaling at 100%, and browser scaling at 100%. I don't believe it's a GPU or OS system wide type setting because windows photo viewer gets pictures right. I'm using ShareX to measure the pixels of pictures. I can even load a local picture in a tab, and it will be upscaled beyond its native resolution. I have no idea why. I've tried a bunch of things, like setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1.0, which did nothing. I've reset Firefox to no avail, and I have noticed that Chrome is doing the same thing, which would usually indicate it could be the OS or GPU driver, but again, other apps load images perfectly normally. Do apps have categories on Windows now, where something like a "browser" can be told to treat media files differently than other media handling categories? I'm really lost at this point, nothing seems to work.

Hiya. I usually have a fairly large number of tabs open on the browser. I use the Panorama View add-on for tab management. Usually this means that on any given container I have about 10-20 tabs open for a total of some 300 odd tabs. The nice thing is that Firefox doesn't usually load all my tabs so this works out for me. Recently however something weird's been going on and Firefox just refreshed ALL my tabs across all the containers. This kills my performance completely, especially given a fair number of tabs are just random youtube links. When all my tabs are open Firefox eats up like 25 GB of RAM, which is understandably not great.

I tried refreshing Firefox to no avail. Is there any way to stop this constant loading of all tabs?

My browser will, at seemingly random intervals, refresh all tabs, which causes me often to lose my work on whatever I was doing.

Please help, I don't want to switch to another browser but I will if this problem persists as it is QUITE frustrating.
