We have a AJAX uploader (Cutewebui) in our site. It was working fine for smaller and larger files. But after upgrading firefox version to 100, it is not working. It is giving error 'html5: the upload task is interrupted'.

For older versions it is working fine.

Please help us to resolve it.

When I asked you how to block unwanted pop-ups, I got this message: "If you see the address bar with the Tracking Protection button and the Site Identity button (a shield and a padlock) in the pop-up window, the pop-up is coming from Firefox."

          That doesn't help at all.  Firefox is the most annoying of all, as it's the most incessant.  I've tried several times to block update notifica-

tions; If I get any response at all, I get only irrelevant, UN-helpful,responses. Each time I try to find the answer, the con- versation/thread is either locked, or mislabeled as "solved".

           I REALLY don't want to have to give up on firefox completely, so can you PLEASE provide a shortcut or tell me how to solve this problem myself?


Thanks, ML

GoodDay to you All,

Website with a picture, right-click, save picture as, choosing a directory.... ... and then, normally, if there are already 3 other files in the chosen directory, let's say: house_1.jpg , house_2.jpg , house_3.jpg , and I would start with typing "hou" for a filename, then normally FF would make a "suggestion-list" under the "filename:-box", like: house_1.jpg house_2.jpg house_3.jpg

... and I would be able to click on one of them, and change the name into house_4.jpg.

But, alas, there is no more suggention-list since this afternoon. I can only type a name for the file, and that's it.

Can someon please help me restore this "save-as-suggestion-list" ?

Kind regards from the Dutch Lowlands

For several months now I have had a problem with SOME of my bookmarked pages not loading, because "security certificate" problems, Now NONE of them will load. I was just online 20 minutes ago and the ones that have been working were working. Evidently firefox updated, without permission, and now none of the pages I was at 20 minutes ago will load. This is really starting to piss me off!!!!!!!!!! I have been using firefox since the stone age, as I have felt it to be the best browser out there. Now it looks like I'm gonna havta switch to internet exploder, or chrime, or one of the other crappy browsers out there.

I'm using Windows 10 Pro and Firefox 97.0.1 I do not want the Firefox icon on my desktop (I already have it pinned to my taskbar). I delete the shortcut, but it reappears each time I log in. Removing it requires me to have a coworker with admin privileges come supply a password - it's not tenable for me to keep bugging her every day. I cannot find the setting to suppress the re-creation of the desktop icon; where is it located? I prefer Firefox, but if there's no solution to this I will have to uninstall it and switch to a different browser.

Since the new Firefox browser print system dialog was introduced, replacing the system print dialog panel, the process takes an excessive amount of time to process a print to a device or other interface (especially Preview), compared to the previous version as well as when compared to other browsers, like Safari.

By excessive, I mean 10-30 seconds for anything in the browser; where previously the request was completed in 1-2 seconds.

OS: macOS Sierra (10.12.6) FF: 97.0.1

Some websites add some annoying animation effects into their website's title (that shows in the tab title).

Example: This website: https://colourpop.com/ If you switch to another tab for several seconds, it starts flashing a message, "Hey, where'd you go?". I'd like to be able to disable this and any similar animations that can potentially be added to a website's title. Is this only possible by disabling some scripts and/or using UBlock, etc, or can I do this within Firefox?

Thank you,

For well over a year, after one of the updates, I cannot access my bank account; however, Google Chrome give easy access. I'm using Firefox 97.0.1. Bottom line: after over 10 years of using Firefox to do my banking, I now have to go to another browser to do it. Is there some kind of solution? Why does Google Chrome work and Firefox does not work?

In earlier versions your print dialog box could be disabled with "print.tab_modal.enabled + true. In my Firefox version 97.0.1, that is not effective. PLEASE go back to allowing users to disable the Firefox print dialog box. It is clumsy, retains print settings that have to be changed each time a different document has to be printed, and creates a number of steps and wasted time for people who must routinely print from Firefox.

Why would Firefox go the way of other software companies and have no one to contact about this other than community (no offense to the "community") and disable the option to remove the Firefox print dialog box? None of this is the user friendly Firefox I have come to know!

I'm currently facing a sudden very weird problem. How it works is, except through the google-Firefox New Tab, I cannot type anything into the URLs, and I cannot press the back button, or any of the system/setting/app buttons other than the Download, including the "favorite/bookmark this page" button next to where you put URLs (which as noted, is inaccessible.)

It seems to have suddenly happened without any warning today, but it means I cannot use the back button, type in URLs except through the New Tabs, and other very odd restrictions.

I use Facebook for many years. Last time used it was 12 hours ago. Then, 1 hour ago, Firefox did not start, all I was able to do was to exit (option inside a small Firefox Problem Window).

I downloaded the installation files, and re-installed Firefox. It started with the two Firefox Start Pages. But I expected to see all my tabs and browsing history and plugins.

So I copied the files from my previous profile into the folder of the newly created profile after I deleted the new profile files. But now, when starting Firefox, I get again a small window with the option to create again a new empty profile or just to exit. It says I would use an "older" version of Firefox and this could destroy my profile.

What must I do to get back all my tabs and plugins and all that?

Hi

I'm using Firefox on Windows 10.

Normally within Firefox, pressing CTRL + left click opens a tab in a new background window.

I'm left handed and use the mouse in my left hand. So I swap the left and right mouse buttons around within Windows settings, so the right mouse button is my primary button. I would then expect CTRL + right click to now open a tab in a new background window, but it doesn't. The CTRL is ignored.

Does anyone know how I can configure Firefox so that the behaviour is consistent, whichever button is the primary one?

Thanks.

Hi, Firefox is displaying letters with accents (e.g. letters from Spanish words) incorrectly as Cyrillic letters. This makes a lot of webpages difficult to read. This does not seem to be happening all the time. Neither does it seem to happen in other apps other than Firefox. I have my preferred languages for displaying webpages in Firefox set as En-GB, en, es-es, in that order. Ditto for my wider system settings. In terms of my wider system keyboards I do have Russian installed, in order of preference this is gb > us > es > ru. I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to ensure Spanish and other Latin letters display correctly?
