Hello,

On MacOS 14.0(Sonoma) Firefox 118.0.2 (64-bit), facing the problem with web.whatsapp.com chat messages. The timestamps for the messages are displayed in UTC and not as per the system time(IST, in my case).

- web telegram shows correct timestamps, opened in same browser session - web whatsapp on Chrome shows correct timestamps - fingerprinting is set to false(was not touched at all).

Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks. -Sachin

I couldn't find a category for Firefox accounts/Mozilla accounts, so this question will be posted in the Firefox forum.

TL;DR Is there any way to get in touch with someone at Mozilla who can correct a faulty notification email address for a Firefox/Mozilla account?

My best guess is that when I first created the Mozilla account, I used the Gmail address, and even after changing the primary and secondary email addresses for the account, the Gmail address still remains somewhere in some database in the backend and it can't be removed or changed by an end user. Is there any way Mozilla can fix this issue?

The full story

Today I received an email introducing the renaming of Firefox account to Mozilla account. The email was sent to my old Gmail address even though I've changed both the primary and secondary email address in my Mozilla account settings a long time ago.

Email notifications about sign-ins and/or changes that are made to the Mozilla account are sent to the correct email addresses that I've configured in the account. So the issue is with general announcement emails regarding Mozilla accounts.

I have not received the email about the Mozilla account renaming to the email addresses that are configured in the account. Somewhere down the line I will delete the Gmail account, but that will also mean that I won't get these kind of announcements and thereby risk missing important information regarding the account.

If I have many tabs open, and pull one away, instead of the previous tab saying in focus, it clicks to a different tab.

If I have 5 tabs open:

  1. Tab1
  2. Tab 2
  3. Tab 3
  4. Tab 4
  5. Tab 5

I'm focused on Tab 3. If I pull Tab 5 away, it snaps me into Tab 4 even though I was previously on a different tab.

I think this isn't a bug but not desired?

I am often now getting messages that Secure Connection Failed though I can connect to these sites through other browsers. It is getting annoying enough that I am thinking of switching away from FireFox as my default browser if there is not a simple fix. Thanks, Claire

Hi, I seem to have an issue with Firefox rendering pages with artifacts. I use Linux Mint 21.2 Cinnamon, video adapter is Intel HD 4000. Currently running 6.2 kernel, tried to fall back to 5.15 which didn't change anything. Attached the examples, the first 2 are screenshots of the about:support page, the issue appear there consistently but not necessarily at the same place. I've tried to open Firefox in the Troubleshooting mode, and the artifact appeared right in the dialog asking for restart! (see pic. 3) Enabling software WebRender (gfx.webrender.software=true) fixes the issue.

about:support page:

 when HW compositing is on: https://termbin.com/7ith
 when SW compositing is on: https://termbin.com/rlme

I have tested memory with memtest86+ overnight with no errors, CPU has been tested by Prime95 for 3-4 hours, the iGPU seems to be working fine either in Unigine Heaven, GpuTest and glmark tests. Is there a way to fix the issue other than disabling HW compositing?

For probably years now, I have this problem on my laptop. WhatsApp Web can't load any stickers - not that I send, receive or any in my drawer.

I can't understand why it's specifically WhatsApp and specifically the stickers, but I tried to fix it: - I logged off and on to WhatsApp Web, didn't help. - I disabled then removed all extensions, didn't help. - I've removed all profile data, didn't help. - I reinstalled Firefox after wiping the AppData folder, didn't help.

This problem has persisted over updates and doesn't happen in Chrome - stickers download there just fine. It also doesn't happen on any other computer I use with Firefox.

I tried to investigate the cause of the problem. First off, the sticker HTTP request on the network tab fails with the weird error status NS_ERROR_INTERCEPTION_FAILED or NS_BINDING_ABORTED (both appear). The console says the following:

Failed to load ‘https://mmg.whatsapp.net/v/t62.15575-24/31187942_602693368536193_4171257086940206138_n.enc?ccb=11-4&oh=01_AdSo-95lTiTT9NthZMidBB00c8tI8PlEuBlxvoIsC9rkuA&oe=6558CC66&_nc_sid=000000&hash=PDQ3jJY4Svmj3ZJIIkyTzdyKEeyiyBLg64CuZRuaEIM%3D&mode=auto&mms-type=sticker&__wa-mms=’. A ServiceWorker passed a promise to FetchEvent.respondWith() that rejected with ‘TypeError: NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource.’.

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://mmg.whatsapp.net/v/t62.15575-24/31187942_602693368536193_4171257086940206138_n.enc?ccb=11-4&oh=01_AdSo-95lTiTT9NthZMidBB00c8tI8PlEuBlxvoIsC9rkuA&oe=6558CC66&_nc_sid=000000&hash=PDQ3jJY4Svmj3ZJIIkyTzdyKEeyiyBLg64CuZRuaEIM%3D&mode=auto&mms-type=sticker&__wa-mms=. (Reason: CORS request did not succeed). Status code: (null).

I thought it was a CORS thing, but it doesn't seem to actually be the reason - after googling, "CORS request did not succeed" just seems to be a failed request and unrelated to CORS. I ran Wireshark to sniff the request, and what I found was that Firefox sends an OPTIONS request (even though it doesn't log it in the Network tab), the OPTIONS request is answered with a 200 OK, and then this error occurs.

This convinces me that this is an internal problem with Firefox or with some other program on my computer that interferes specifically with Firefox. Any ideas as to what could be the issue? I'll be happy to supply more logs if needed.

On upgrading to Firefox ver 118.02, I cannot get any toolbar icons to appear in their correct place on the bookmarks toolbar. Instead they are crammed in the middle of the second (address) line. The double chevrons can be used to access the remaining of the toolbar icons.

Dragging a link to the toolbar space is not allowed.

Please fix this. I need easy access to ALL my toolbar icons, and have an expanded search box on the second line.

I have the same issue as this guy https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1402931#question-reply Exceptions. I have a new Dell pc and my Mozilla browser is 118. I have had this issue from the time that I purchased the new pc and attached it to my old Dell monitor. I've had Dell and Geek Squad involved both before and after I found this guy's fix in the Mozilla faq's. Before finding that I have had the new pc checked, the old and new monitor checked. All turned out fine system wise. So first suggestion from Dell - new cord - HDMI to VGA - didn't help. New monitor. Didn't help. Finally after much purchasing of technology and no changes a Dell tech was on using Edge browser. I realized that the monitor was perfect and told them so. So they tried Chrome and still the monitor text was fine. Firefox - back to blotchy. That's when I did the search in Mozilla faq's and found this other issue and "fix". I talked a Geek Squad tech into changing my display setting to "Extend Display" in Windows. Text totally disappeared from the monitor. So I've run out of options other than to set up everything under Chrome or Edge which I really don't want to do. But I may have to. In the meantime I've proved that I didn't need a new monitor or a new cord.

The image below is a camera picture of text on the monitor.

Help!!!

Hey all,

I have 4 devices connected to Firefox Sync.

  1. Mac deskop
  2. Mac laptop
  3. iPhone
  4. iPad

It appears that the sync will sync extensions between the deskop and laptop ok, but not tabs. Both computers can see synced tabs from the mobile devices but not from each other.

I have logged out and in, turned on sync and off and on again, changed device names just to see if that refreshed things, removed them from the logged in list to kick them out and then logged in again, changed the tick boxes for sync items and yet tabs will not sync.

When I look under History > Synced Tabs I see the two mobile devices and their tabs but I don't even see the other Mac listed, let alone its tabs.

Help appreciated.
