Hello,

I am looking for a toolbar addon that allows shortcuts to local applications. Example, shortcuts to notepad, word, calc etc... on a toolbar (like the firefox [CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[B]-toolbar)

There are launchers and such to launch applications, but I just want a dedicated toolbar for this where I can place shortcuts to firefox tools/utilities on there.

10+ years ago there was an addon for firefox that was a simple toolbar which could handle url's, local applications...anything as long as it could be created as a shortcut on the desktop. But I can't find it anymore it probably got dis-continued.

Any suggestion is very welcome.

Thanks.

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.

Avast Secure Browser imposes itself by opening on start up despite my attempts to stop it doing so. AND despite Firefox being my default browser for over ten years and long before I started using Avast free antivirus. Avast has loaded it on , I never elected to do so ...but that said I do not wish to totally remove it from my lap top as it is, as it were, an insurance policy against Firefox becoming inoperable. I have explored switching off this attribute of avast browser in the browser but to date have been unsuccessful. As a retired man in my seventies I am limited in my peer group for finding anyone that is computer literate YET this technology is so beneficial to people such as myself I believe.

I cannot login to my office.com accounts with Firefox. Chrome & Edge work fine. Attempting to use Firefox will get me as far as the "Stay signed in?" prompt, then dump me back to the sign in screen: I have refreshed, re-installed, installed a previous version, used Revouninstaller to get rid of all traces of Firefox, deleted the Mozilla folders from the appdata folder and reinstalled + tried using a private window. No joy with anything. I believe this is the key phrase from the error message (quoted below): "client request loop"

The only thing stopping me from switching to FireFox is this issue, whenever I try to enable 2-factor-auth I keep getting a message saying "Incorrect two-step authentication code".

I tried restarting my PC, restarting my phone, used 3 different auth apps, restarted my router, used a VPN, cleared cache and cookies, tried enabling it from a different browser, tried using a different phone, tried enabling it on a different account, and nothing fixed the issue, I keep getting the same error message "Incorrect two-step authentication code"

at this point I'm 99% sure it's a server sided issue.

help me, this is taking way too long to just activate 2-factor-authentication :(

When signing in to my Barclays On Line account,the 2nd page of the sequence is distorted such that one vital box can only be seen my reducing the page to 65%. This happens on two PC's both are using Firefox. Browsing with Edge gives no problem! One PC is running win 10 the other Win11 - both have Norton 360 AV. Is this a FF or Barclays problem?

Recently I upgraded my Windows 10 to Windows 11 and since doing so, I've had consistent errors while browsing the web on Firefox. Most notably the "Humm. We're having trouble finding that site." error message.

For example, when visiting, say Verizon.com, the tab will display the aforementioned error to which I press Try Again and the website loads correctly every-time. No hiccups on the refresh.

I've tried the following:

  1. I've performed a completely clean uninstall of Firefox and then reinstall
  2. Cleared all browser history/cache
  3. Removed all extensions
  4. Disabled IPv6, HTTPS Over DNS, No Proxy
  5. Ran through Firefox's troubleshooting
  6. Used Firefox Troubleshooting Mode in the Browser
  7. Tested that the problem does not happen while using Edge

I've never had a single problem on Windows 10 with Firefox. Curious if others are experiencing the same issues and if there are any fixes. Nothing else on the PC has changed.

  • Windows 11 21H2 2200.348
  • Network driver is the latest Win11 edition
  • Firefox 95

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?

Nightly 95 on Windows 11 - Minimize & Maximize Buttons Are Missing

I have recently clean installed Windows 11 on my computer. I have noticed with the current Nightly 95 install that the minimize & maximize buttons are completely gone, only the close button is there. Even when I click on the area where the 2 missing buttons are nothing happens. When I double click the same area, the area behaves the same way as the rest of the top bar, it either makes the current window become a smaller window or a full window.

I have also installed Firefox 93 and 94 Beta 6, they both behave as normal with the minimize and maximize buttons visible and usable, just like any other program or Firefox version ever on Windows. Also, before I clean installed Windows 11, I used Nightly 95 on Windows 10 within the last day or so and I don't recall ever having this behavior happen there either.

Is this behavior on Nightly 95 on Windows 11 intentional or an error? I know Firefox has and is going through a massive GUI update and other user facing changes with Proton, but wasn't sure if this had anything to do with the trouble I am experiencing. I also understand that Nightly may have a lot of changes and features that are unique to it. I honestly just wasn't sure about this issue.

Thank you in advance for any and all help!

Hello. I have just installed Windows 11 and have a problem with the Firefox browser that I didn't have with Windows 10.

On the Talk Radio website: (https://talkradio.co.uk/), there is a "Listen Live" button which, when clicked creates a popup window for their Radio Player application. Under Windows 11, the window pops up, but is empty (this was fine under Windows 10). I tried this with Edge and it works fine.

Could someone look into this please? I don't want to have to use Edge.

Many thanks,

Kevin
