Suddenly, Firefox won't load Google Calendar. I see the template, but the items on the calendar won't load. I know it's not the calendar itself because it loads fine in Chrome and on all my android devices. I made sure all the add-ons were taken off. I refreshed. I cleared the cache. Erased history. Nothing worked.

I finally gave up, backed up all my bookmarks, and deleted Firefox. I downloaded it fresh and installed it again. Same problem! The calendar won't load. I found others complaining, but no one had a solution.

Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but a friend told me this was part of a "browser war" and Firefox would no longer support a variety of sites and apps. Is that true? Or do you have a solution.

When the computer awakes from sleep, I can't click on anything within a browser window. I can't move between tabs either. The Firefox menu works and can select items in there. Restarting the browser fixes it. I got in touch with Apple yesterday and they said they couldn't help me because this is a Firefox problem. So here I am.

Hi, I just installed FireFox on my Early 2011 MacBook Pro, and every time a page loads up, the screen flashes and flickers with long horizontal bars. It's not just the browser bar, it's the entire screen, and it's making FireFox unusable on my laptop. I tried changing the hardware acceleration, which reduced the amount of flashing but did not stop it from happening. I also tried running FireFox in safe-mode but I am still having the same issue. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

I have an ssh tunnel that I am using to access an AWS ElasticSearch instance running in AWS, so that I can see Kibana in my browser. The tunnel is necessary because access is only allowed through a specific jump/gateway host that we have setup (this is very standard).

I used to be able to access this just fine with http://localhost:9200/_plugin/kibana But then ElasticSearch updated something to require that the 'HOST' header contain the original host, ie: search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com

Ok, no matter, I'll just add an entry to my hosts file: 127.0.0.1 search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com

Now, I can curl just fine, and using Chrome works just fine too: http://search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com:9200/_plugin/kibana

But every time I try to use Firefox, it replaces the http with https, which obviously doesn't work because the tunnel is to port 80.


Yes, I realize that *.amazonaws.com is owned by Amazon and they have an SSL cert.

I have read a similar ticket, here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1209387 The acceptable answer in that ticket seemed to be to use a different domain for local development, which shouldn't be too hard to do, but in my case this is not a usable answer.

I should be able to override Firefox and tell it not to change a URL that I have put into it, at least for specific sites.

I have a VMware VM used as a desktop by a team and they've reported that Firefox only shows a blank screen. It doesn't respond to anything, if I click the burger and click options then it doesn't even open a new tab. And I can't even access about:config.

However I've discovered that if I access the desktop via the VMware console then FF works perfectly fine, if I RDP onto the desktop and run FF I get the behavior as I've described.

Even weirder...is if I launch the browser in an RDP session and then seize the session via the VMware console then the behavior stays there until I relaunch it.

And vice versa if I launch the browser in the vmware console and then log in via RDP the browser works perfectly fine until I relaunch it!

What could be causing this?!

I've tried: Disabling hardware acceleration Cleanly uninstalling Reinstalling both the latest version and latest ESR Removing my profile All resulted in in the same blank FF.

No other VM running FF is experiencing this issue, and I'm the only one with rights to modify things.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

How do I setup WebVR in Firefox for Oculus Rift with a Radeon Graphics card?

Only info I can find about this is where they explain how to make it work for Oculus Rift with Nvidia's Graphics card. I can't find any mention of AMD's stuff. I have AMD RX 5700.

One of those setup instructions says to download and install Firefox, allow unknown sources in Oculus Home (which I have done). And then it says this: "For PCs (especially laptops) using Nvidia chipsets, there are several methods of enabling the discrete GPU. One way is from the NVIDIA Control Panel: Load 3D Settings > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings tab, and select Mozilla Firefox (firefox.exe) as the program to customize, and select “High-performance NVIDIA processor" as the preferred graphics processor. "

What if I have AMD Graphics? Am I unable to use a VR browser until I get an nvidia graphics card? Why is there no info about this anywhere????

First of all, my request concerns the "Free box TV" function or button or application of the Freebox server web interface running under OS version 4.2.7 with the default browser Firefox 84.0.2 (64bits) which allows to watch or record freebox TV channels on PC. Malfunction observed: After uninstalling "Adob flash player" dated January 13,2021 and upon the requested installation of VLC 3.0.12 with web plugin, Mozilla plugin and Active X plugin activated, it is impossible to open the "Free box TV" function or button or application. Indeed a double click on this button invariably leads to the edition of the message: "impossible to watch TV, you must install " flash player "plugin (which no longer exists since January 12,2021)or the VLC plugin which is a NPAPI one (not allowed by Firefox). Everything happens as if the installation of VLC had not been detected. I tried with 2 other browsers: microsoft Edge and Avast secure browser with an identical malfunction NB: the VLC player works nominally and allows to read the TV network stream from the freebox server. Questions: Q1: Do I have to install the extension or the module "Open in VLC media player" in the Firefox browser in order to open the "Freebox TV" application? Q2: Do I have to wait for a further Freebox development of this function which would be based on HTML5? with my thanks

Within the last few weeks, sometimes when I try to use Firefox, I'm told to reconnect to Firefox. I reconnect by entering my account password, etc., but after I've thus reconnected, my previously saved passwords are gone. I've tried to import them from another browser, but it doesn't import them. The only way that I can proceed is to manually enter my passwords to other sites. Everything is good for a few days, but eventually, I'm asked to reconnect to Firefox, and when I do, my saved passwords are gone. This is so frustrating that I'm about to stop using Firefox. Is there a way to fix this problem?

Thanks.

I have set the Downloads preference to "Always ask you where to save files".

When I download a file (I usually download PDF files), Firefox presents the file picker dialog with some directory pre-selected.

I would expect Firefox to pre-select the directory where I saved my most recent file.

However, Firefox often switches between several of my recent directory, seemingly absolutely arbitrarily. It would present the most recent directory e.g. 5 times in a row then suddenly switch to some other directory on its own.

This is EXTREMELY annoying and bad, as it is easy to overlook the changed directory and save the file in an unintended directory. It happened several times to me.

This behavior so destructive and annoying that I would consider it a bug that should get fixed (other browsers do not do this!). However if it is for some strange reason considered to be a feature, how can it turned off and how can Firefox be made to ALWAYS present the most recent download directory?
