I can't turn off lazy loading. I set the following about:config settings to "false":

browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand browser.sessionstore.restore_tabs_lazily browser.sessionstore.restore_pinned_tabs_on_demand

Nothing changes. When I start Firefox, it simply won't load all tabs. How do I fix this?

"Window" top menu pulldown now forces open windows into alphabetical order?

Hi. I am in Mac Big Sur and Firefox 108. I tend to keep a lot of windows open and navigate among them using the "Window" pulldown menu at the top between "Tools" and "Help". It used to be that the latest window more or less stayed at the bottom and the others stayed in order so they were easy to find quickly. A recent upgrade made it so the windows are now alphabetized and constantly shuffling. Since they are alphabetized by the name in the page title, this often offers no clue as to what it is--like it might be alphabetized under like cart or home page or main or something general like that. Also, if you have different tabs in a window, that window might jump from the top to the middle if a different tab is last looked at. Bottom line: it is very difficult and non-intuitive to find a page when you have a lot of windows open--but it used to be easy. Is there a way to order the wondows the way you want them or go back to the chronological order of before? Seems like there must be a setting somewhere. Thanks so much for any help.

I am trying to have Firefox show an "X" on every tab as soon as I hover above it. I followed a certain article and implemented this code:

/* Show Tab Close buttons only when hovered */

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]) > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 visibility: collapse !important;
 opacity: 0 !important;
 transition: all 250ms ease-in-out !important;

}

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]):hover > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 visibility: visible !important;
 opacity: 1 !important;
 transition: all 250ms ease-in-out !important;;

}

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]) > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 display: -moz-box !important;

}


This code is however not being implemented no matter how many times I restart Firefox. 'toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets' is set to True The location is userChrome.css is '/home/user1/.mozilla/firefox/yqomjsh9.default-release-1672744596809/chrome/userChrome.css'

What could be the issue? I tried adding executable permissions using "chmod" but that did not change anything.

I lost my tabs again today at start-up. I went to history & did "Open All In Tabs" for about 200 tabs...most of the important ones did not come back. I can't be doing this on a regular basis. You've spoiled me with the tabs staying on the browser every day. But, even though I've used Mozilla for years, I may have to find something else I can trust! This is twice now...I can't spend this kind of time trying to recover things (many of which I can't get to).

Over the past two days, I have found if I create a new tab, the shortcuts that I had saved on that page have all disappeared. Does Firefox keep a backup of these shortcuts? Unlike related support messages I've read, my bookmarks and bookmarks toolbar are unaffected.

These shortcuts (about 16 of them) took quite a while to accumulate, and it is frustrating to see that they can just simply disappear like that.

I am running Firefox 108.0.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10).

Hello! Since a month I have a strange problem - Firefox wont connect to any Google service - REcaptcha, google-analytics. Any site that uses these services would not load, or loads and waits until connection expires. I tried refreshing Firefox, the uninstalling and re-installing - the problem remains. I do not use any proxy or firewall on my computer. Opera and other browsers do not have this problem. Please, advice.

I recently upgraded from 108.0.2 (64-bit) to 109.01 but it slowed my PC down to the point of uselessness. Nothing else changed application or OS-wise. PC, OS and all Apps are current & up to date. Defrag, Cache Clear a& all similar utilities run on scheduled basis prior to upgrade and everything A-OK.

Is this a Known Issue? If so, is there a fix coming

(1-7-23, Windows 10): My problem for the past month is that FF won't keep me logged into sites where I specifically ask to stay logged in. It remembers my passwords but will not keep me logged in to Amazon, Yahoo, Facebook, etc. This is a home computer only used by me so I don't want to be logged out. Also, I get messages from sites saying there's a login from a new browser and I keep having to confirm it's me. It will work for a day, but when I start the computer on the next day, I'm logged out of everything.

I have done all these things:

  • Refreshed FF
  • Uninstalled & reinstalled FF
  • Cleared the Cache
  • Cleared Cookies
  • Settings: Remember History
  • No checkmark for Private Browsing
  • Tried turning off Enhanced Tracking Protection for affected sites
  • Tried changing Privacy to Custom, and un-checked Cookies to allow them
  • No checkmark for "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"

I think I have solved the problem after re-starting or completely turning computer off and on again, as long as it's the same day. The next day it's like it's a whole new FF browser. This started a month ago or so. Can anyone help? Nothing I do seems to work. Thanks!

XHR post blocked when Captcha is selected

Hello, I am struggling with a bug specific to Firefox (108.0.2) in which I have an XHR Post that is being blocked by dev tools only when a google captcha is selected. Here is the website that the bug is happening on. Per comment suggestions I've added a screen shot of the URL being blocked in dev tools.

My overall goal is to have this form post it's action and post the form data to another endpoint (https://beeceptor.com/console/preferencecenter). I am able to successfully post data to beeceptor with the captcha selected when testing in Chrome, but as stated not Firefox. If the form is submitted without the captcha selected the data is successfully posting to the beeceptor endpoint- this behavior is happening with both Chrome and Firefox which I am sure means something is wrong with my Javascript which can be resolved later.

Looking at the console in Firefox I am consistently seeing a XHR Post blocked to the beeceptor url with captcha selected. I have gone through several iterations of this code to resolve the issue, none of which have successfully worked. After many, many, hours of digging I have done the following to no avail.

  • Cleared Cache
  • Ran in Safemode then back to regular mode (one article this appeared to fix for a user)
  • Ran in Private Browsing
  • Adjusted CORS accordingly

There are more items I've attempted that I can't remember off the top of my head.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated as I have hit a wall.
