My system requires me to log in to the internet when I start up. Usually I am given a message and asked to click on a link, which brings up my login page. Since yesterday I have been receiving the following message: The page isn’t redirecting properly

"Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies." I have cleared my cookies and cache and restarted numerous times. This message keeps coming up. I am able to access my home page, but any attempt to click on bookmarked links results in this message, and occasionally it will refuse even that, telling me it's redirected me too many times. Apart from clearing my cookies cache, which doesn't help, what else can I do to fix this problem? Thanks

Hi everyone,

I have this message that appears on every web page but my connection is fine: "you must log in to this network before you can access the internet". It appeared I don't know how (maybe after using my VPN?) and I can't get rid of it. Any idea?

In advance, thanks a lot.

Read support article about importing username and password info direct from .CSV file. I see at the bottom of that article that if no such option presents (Import from file), I am to ensure that signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled is set to true. I don't see that operator within the listing of configuration options. I can create that operator and set it to true, but that doesn't make the 'import from file' option appear in the three dot drop down menu within the Logins and Passwords page. Has the title or location of the fileImport operator changed, been moved?

Windows 10 gesture two finger swipe left and two finger swipe right doesn't work in Firefox. Two finger swipe left allows user to go history backward and two finger swipe right allows user to go history forward. These gestures work in Firefox if the user hold Alt key and preform the gestures. But most of the users don't like to hold Alt key and preform the gestures. Please fix that issue.

HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

I rather switch to another browser if I cannot get rid of this. Checked my 3 plug-ins, but cannot find anything there, nor if it is something on Facebook I cannot find it. Any idea?

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

On ubuntu 20.04, the snap version of firefox can't play some videos. Some youtube videos will play but streams won't, and then I get the message "to play video, you need to install the required video codecs". On telegram web and tweetdeck I also get this message while trying to play some video.

Since it's a snap, nothing I do on my system will solve the problem, I cannot install any codecs.

I'm on an older iMac using OS 10.10.5 Yosemite. I can't upgrade due to work.

Currently I'm running Firefox 78.3.1esr (64bit) and I'm having trouble seeing some websites correctly (see attached screenshot for ebay for example). Sites also take a longer time than usual to render.

Is there anything I can do to make Firefox work well again?

Thanks!

I have been using Firefox for the past 2 years, but only recently have I noticed that Firefox is using 1 GB of RAM! It never increases or decreases and its getting very annoying now since I have barely any RAM to run zoom with (which for some reason takes up the rest of my RAM). I can't even run anything else, and thats annoying me a lot since my fan has to keep running. I can't upgrade my RAM because I use a laptop, and my laptop is under warranty and I can't afford to lose the warranty by upgrading the RAM. Is there any other way to decrease memory usage beside using about:memory and pressing the "minimize memory usage" button? Nothing happens when I press the button.

I'm trying to take off this "Extension (Tabliss)" tag on my url. I have followed the instructions down below from another Firefox support forum: https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/make-addressbar-text-extension-name-of-the-extension-shorter-or-hide/28026/3

The instructions I followed are listed below:

"Users can apply custom style rules to modify Firefox’s toolbar area by creating a userChrome.css file. This takes about 10 minutes so when you have time to take it slowly and carefully:

(1) Set up your chrome folder and userChrome.css file following the five six steps in this article:

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html 45

I have a boring video there if you like demonstrations.

(2) This is the code to paste into the file. You can edit the file using Notepad or a better editor. Make sure to keep it in a plain text format with a .css file extension (not .css.txt).

See improved rule down in: Make addressbar text "Extension (Name Of The Extension)" shorter or hide

/*

  Hide Extension Name in the identity area unless
  hovered for half a second (updated for Fx80)
  • /
  1. identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-labels,
  2. identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-label {
 visibility: collapse !important;
 transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out;

}

  1. identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-labels,
  2. identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-label {
 visibility: visible !important;
 transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out 500ms;

}

(3) Firefox should read the file at its next startup and apply it to every extension page you load."

Edit: So, yeah, I need help getting this tag off. I'm new to Firefox so it could be something obvious I'm missing. I have also tried CTRL+SHIFT+R to reload the page for changes and also closed and reopened my Firefox entirely.

Thanks in advance.

dear ladies and gentlemen,

Firefox has been delivered with the new print dialog since version 82.

I have to print around a hundred PDF files at work (usually only the first page of the document). The new print dialog means that there is a lot more work for me here.

Is it possible to set the "old" system print dialog by default or to instruct firefox to always print only the first page of the document by default?

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Hello, I have trouble getting sound playback on firefox (checked 85.0 and 78.7.0esr both 64 bit) on windows 10. I checked sound on youtube, and netflix. I checked other applications like spotify and mpv, and soundplayback there is fine. Also it works on Firefox nightly (87.0a1).

What i have already tried: - restarting my computer - opening windows volume mixer and see if firefox is muted - updating my audio driver - different playback devices (Device over HDMI and Line out) - reinstalling firefox - uninstalling firefox, delete folders in C:\Users\$username\AppData\Local C:\Users\$username\AppData\Roaming - new install with fresh downloaded installer - restart to safe mode

Since firefox nightly is working i suspect that maybe the application name "Firefox" is muted somewhere. This could explain why i can reproduce my error on ESR and stable but not on nightly.
