Enhanced tracking protection is OFF for this site and I have no adblocker running as an extension. Any idea on what could trigger this behaviour and how to regain access to this website?

HI!

My buddy highlighted an issue, then i re-checked myself and it is worrying to me.

To recreate (windows):

Get any (non-webistaller [not nececarry, to do it this way, but simpler to check]) firefox version (buddy got a fresh portable, i used my kinda privacy fortified one). Disconnect from the internet (plug the cable for fastest result). Make your version usable (install it) Start firefox, and open the Resource Monitor, with the network tab open expand the Network Activity portion (short alphabeticly, by name, check for F for firefox). Plug the cable in.

You soon will see FF will start looking for things, then an adress with a googleusercontet.com will pop up. Does not matter what is the Homepage's default browser, does no matters even if the Homepage is set to blank, this happens.

My best bet would be google safe browsing, but still, without any activity it is already connecting to that?

I know about the Google-FF/Mozilla relation, but this really made me think about why i still like firefox.

What's the current instruction for deleting IRLs from the address bar pull down menu? This is not about the history, per se, of having been to any location.

Thanks.

Hi there

I have just updated Firefox Browser from 91.0.2 (32-bit) to 92.0 (64-bit)

The following website now gives a "Server Error" splash as soon as any search operation is attempted and of course, no results are found: https://isrc.soundexchange.com/#!/search

Firefox Browser vers 91.0.2 (32-bit) still works perfectly, but 92.0 (64-bit) gives 'Server Error'

I have tried safe mode, cleared the cache and checked all Privacy and Security settings. The only way to "fix" this problem is to go back to 91.0.2 (32-bit).

Please see images attached First showing 92.0 (64-bit) with Server Error Second, Working. Same site using Vers 91.0.2 (32-bit)

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

This is an issue with Mozilla Support. I'd like to be able to mark an answer as obsolete, as it's potentially misleading.

If you search on Google for "firefox toggle bookmark bar", the first result is this:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/865261

It indicates that there's no shortcut to toggle the bookmark bar, which was probably true when it was written, but isn't true now (can use Ctrl+Shift+B). As the question thread is archived, there's no way to add additional responses to indicate the current Firefox functionality, and users that search for this information may get the impression that the older answer is still accurate.

I don't mean to single this example out, I'm sure there are others and the author of the answer did nothing wrong, but I would like there to be some way to help direct users to more up-to-date information.

I run Firefox on a couple Windows PCs and one Linux Mint PC. Each of them is running Firefox 92.0.

My customary process had been to use one of the Windows PCs as my master copy of Firefox bookmarks. I do not use synch; rather, every so often I export the bookmarks from the master machine and restore the export to my other machines. I've not had a problem with that process in the past.

Today I encountered a problem for the first time: I exported the bookmarks from my "master" Windows PC and usual and then restored to my other PCs. The other Windows PCs did so without trouble, but the Mint PC did not restore the export file correctly: When I attempt to restore on the Mint PC, I get the folder structure from the original Windows export, but none of the folders is populated with bookmarks; instead, all 5K or so individual bookmarks are listed individually at the top level of my "Bookmarks Menu" folder, beneath the list of empty folders.

I've run the about:support Places Database "Verify Integrity" function on both the Windows master PC and on the Mint PC. The function does not flag any issues.

Any idea what's going on, and how I can resolve it? Might there be a bug in the Linux 92.0 that I should report somewhere? Is there a workaround I can try in the meanwhile, e.g., copy places.sqlite from the master machine to the Linux machine?

Thanks in advance for your help / guidance.

Regards, Rob L

The Find bar used to have an X at the far left that I could click to close it. It no longer does. I looked up if there's a hotkey to close it, and it's supposed to be Esc, which is doing nothing.

The bar also appears to have the search box and option tickboxes all grayed out indicating unusable; they're not actually unusable, it's just the appearance that's wrong, but it shouldn't look like that.

Since late last night, I've been having issues connecting to Facebook when using Firefox. Through my own troubleshooting efforts, I've run multiple Virus and Malware scans via AVG, Malware Bytes, TDSS Killer and Microsoft Safety Scanner, to no avail. What doesn't help is that when checking Facebook in Chrome, the error code I get is NET::ERR_SSL_OBSOLETE_VERSION relating to TLS 1.0 and 1.1. Are there other things I should try on my end as to the cause of this issue?

To my knowledge, the issue is only with Facebook. Other websites I frequent are connecting with no issues.

One reason why I liked Firefox so much were two tools in particular that have been inexplicably REMOVED by recent updates, View This Image (or Picture) and View Page Info. Now Firefox is just like everybody else and their brothers. I was wondering if there is an add-on or extension that addresses this deficiency.

I just noticed: Firefox no longer shows installed add-ons and extensions. WTF???

Firefox 92.0 : So now comes another "improvement" from the folks behind a program . . . NOT!

USED TO BE: Click on a Bookmark in the Bookmarks Toolbar and the roll-down would be single lines -- meaning a person could control the number of links in that Bookmark so the roll-down would go to the bottom of the screen. Simple to read, no extra activity needed.

NOW IN THE "NEW & IMPROVED" VERSION: Click on a Bookmark in the Bookmarks Toolbar and the roll-down is 1.5 or 2.0 spacing -- meaning a person is now required to futz with the roll-down since it goes way past the bottom of the screen. A waste of time to search, since one is required to spend the extra activity to scroll down and down and down until all of the bookmarks have become visible.

VISIBLE? Ha. Part of the "NEW & IMPROVED VERSION" is that the screen font used by Firefox is that all-too-ubiquitous light gray color that can barely be read unless is blessed with exceptionally good eyesight. Some websites these days think it is So Very Hip to utilize that style of font -- but make it even lighter! Mindless Madness.

SO: How does one 1. Return the Bookmark roll-down list back to a single-line style? 2. Change the font color so that it is dark enough to be readily read?

Thank you.

Someone in Bugzilla instructed me to use Troubleshoot Mode for a separate problem, so I did. After reverting back to normal mode, I find that my addons are gone. Then I checked about:profiles. I find that one profile (default-release) has my tabs in normal colors (gray) and no addons, while another profile (default) has my addons, but the tabs are strangely white, which I don't want. How do I get the addons to appear while having normal tab color (gray)?

Clicking a hyperlink in an Excel 365 worksheet will not open the URL in Firefox.

Using Excel 365, the worksheets contain tables of short interest history collected from a URL that varies only in the portion that is the companies symbol ( i.e. https://www.nasdaq.com/market-activity/stocks/akts/short-interest , where "akts" is the company symbol ). On the worksheet for each company this URL, with the correct symbol for the company has been included in a cell using the hyperlink feature.

In the past, clicking any of the hyperlinks immediately opened my default browser, which is the current version of Firefox, to the web page for the company identified by the symbol in the URL.

That changed after a version update of Firefox a number of months ago. Clicking the hyperlink will most times "freeze" Excel, and if I click anywhere in or on Excel a "not responding" message is thrown, and Excel must be manually closed resulting in a recover event for all workbooks that were open. Sometimes, not always, waiting several minutes, Firefox will open the URL. Not always. I've found that if that occurs, clicking on the same URL hyperlink that finally opened (after having closed it in Firefox) will crash Excel.

The attached image is a view of the "tip" still visible on a black screen after Excel has crashed.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
