Hello,

I noticed that a setting on the about:config page was removed: the "security.csp.enable" setting. I was using this setting to disable CSP to be able to load local JS scripts on some non-locally hosted sites, for debugging and development, work related purposes.

Was this setting really removed? Is there a way to disable CSP on Firefox on the latest version?

Thanks! Gabriel.

Hello,

Please can you tell me how I can click on a word document and for the document to automatically open without having to click the link in my downlaods? See screenshot of the download box that appears in the top right that I have to click to open the word document.

It does it for a PDF document but not for a word document.

Not sure where this fits in so I started here. I have been running firefox for a very long time. For my home page, I am using Protopage. I have my google calendar as one of the widgets on the page. I have it set up correctly. It was showing up yesterday. Now today it is not showing. I am getting this error:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page

To protect your security, accounts.google.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

I have not made any changes to Protopage or Firefox.

Got any ideas what has changed? What I need to fix to get it working again?

Getting error SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN on all my sites that are signed with a SSL Cert from my internal CA since updating past version 99

This appears to be a bug starting after Firefox version 99 on Windows because after i upgraded to Firefox version 100 i started getting this on all my SSL Certs from my CA and they worked fine prior to the update. Can anyone confirm if something changed after version 100 that is causing this?

Thank you.

I've just suddenly had this problem starting today: downloading files through the browser is now automatically sending them to my computer's Downloads folder, even though I have my download settings set to 'Always ask you where to save files'. I double-checked to see if my settings had been reset by the update (they had not), and I even unselected and reselected the option to see if that helped anything (it didn't).

Ever since upgrading to windows 11 firefox developer edition will not work for me at all.

I have reinstalled it multiple times now and every single time its the same thing, after a fresh install I can open the browser, use it once, close the browser and then it breaks and I am unable to use it again - sometimes i cant even open it up again it creates a background process in the task manager but never appears.

  • - None of the tabs will load anything at all including any of the settings pages or debug/troubleshooting page (about:<page>) - its like it doesnt even attempt to load anything its completely unresponsive
  • - Clicking on any buttons in firefox/options menu do nothing
  • - If i close it i see between 2-10 firefox processes appear in my task manager which i have to go through and end each task before i am able to open the browser up again and even then that doesnt always work.
  • - Because it opens a bunch of processes when you close the browser and this prevents it from re-opening it is not possible to put it into troubleshooting mode
  • - Even after a fresh install (described below) after re-installing the browser it always opens for the first time with a message saying that 'I have reinstalled firefox would i like to refresh the browser' with a button to refresh - If i click this refresh button it instantly breaks it

In order to fix this I have to completely remove firefox from my machine including:

  • - Everything in my users folder
  • - Everything in program files/programdata
  • - Search my C:\ drive and remove all traces of mozilla/firefox i can find
  • - Clear all temp files
  • - Run a disk cleanup
  • - Restart my machine

Before i can attempt to install firefox again. If i dont do this after i reinstall it opens firefox up in exactly the same state it was in before i uninstalled it, same tabs open & completely unresponsive.

I have searched for this problem, and only come across outdated information about Youtube's intentional changes to slowdown Edge and Firefox in 2019. This is not that.

When I load a new youtube video, the video will buffer as normal, and then buffering stops. Then there is a delay of about 10 seconds. You can see from my screenshot that the buffer is filled just fine, and playback begins about 10 seconds later. This also happens if I skip ahead/back or to any position in the video. This firefox install is on a new install of Windows 11, with a new xps 13. The previous xps 13 with windows 11 didn't have this problem, and I don't have this problem on my desktop setup with windows 10.

I use a few addons: decentraleyes, ublock, duckduckgo and I have privacy protections set to strict. I have tried a few troubleshooting steps and the problem persists. Things I have tried:

  • safe-mode
  • fresh install
  • installed additional codecs
  • used user-agent workarounds to show as a chromium based browser
  • turned off hardware acceleration

The problem doesn't happen on chrome, but it does happen on Edge, which is strange. Because of this, I'm wondering if there is something going on with codecs. In the firefox screenshot posted, the codec used is vp09, same with Edge. But in Chrome the codec is av01.

I went into about:config and changed the following values in order to widen the scrollbar:

css. scrollbar-width was true changed to false idget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.size.override was 0 changed to 100 widget.non-native-theme.enabled was true changed to false

Changing these values didn't widen my scrollbar. Without getting into coding, is there another way to make the scrollbar wider? (I changed them all back to the original settings when they didn't work.)

My minimize/maximize buttons have suddenly gone missing. I found other answers on this site that say Tablet Mode is the culprit; indeed, the density settings within Firefox are telling me Tablet Mode on.

However, tablet mode was officially removed in Windows 11. It's not in the settings, it's not in the Control Panel, and registry edits don't seem to work either. So what's going on here? A regression? How do I get my minimize and maximize buttons back?

So yesterday I got a new computer and downloaded Firefox to be my default browser. It worked fine the first few hours -- I was able to log into my account, set up my extensions, and use the browser as intended. A few hours in, though, it completely crashed on me. I am unable to go to new websites, refresh a page, open bookmarks, log in to my Firefox account, or even open settings; the home screen also doesn't load when I open a new tab. Literally the only thing I can do is freeze the Bookmarks Toolbar and customize the Toolbar. I tried closing and reopening, refreshing/resetting the browser, restarting my computer, going into Troubleshoot mode, deleting and redownloading the application, but nothing is working. I have no trouble with Firefox on my previous computer or my phone, and Edge is working fine on this computer. I don't know what to do anymore. Any help would be much appreciated.
