Good afternoon, We have a large quantity of PC's that we need to add a Pop-Up exception to for Firefox.

Is there a way to add this desired website pop-up exception via a script remotely? I know where to go to manually add a Pop-Up exception (Settings/Privacy & security/Allowed Website Pop-Up's). But is there a way to script this? Can this even be locked with a PrefLock line in a Mozilla.cfg file? I did a little digging and did not see anything. That would be ideal.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Please note that the remote machines are NOT a part of a domain. But I have complete connectivity to them as an administrator on the same network.

Hi, I made the mistake of selecting a checkbox in a browser popup window that I thought was just asking me if I didn't want to be reminded about something everytime I tried to do it ... but it seems that's not the case, and unfortunately I cannot find the setting to reverse the decision, and it is stopping me from deleting wordpress plugins from the wordpress admin of my site ... when I now try to select the plugin "delete" link, it is unresponsive ... can you think of which thing I might have selected in what popup window of the browser, and how I could reverse this? I tried a few things but nothing worked.

So, on Windows 10 I noticed that when I click the History tab I see Show All History and when I click that the only option I get is Today..very odd.

On my Windows 7 Home Premium when I do the same steps I have access to "Today", "Yesterday", "Last 7 days" and various recent months.

This is what I'm accustomed to and was hoping to get input on why I only get Today option on my Windows 10 computer.

Looking forward to your reply...

Recent updates on firefox (firefox - 93.0+build1-0ubuntu0.21.04.1) seems to have issues with pictures in this webpage webpage :

System Host: Kubuntu 20.04 Kernel: 5.11.0-38-generic

I tried a virtual machine (gnome boxes) with pop os. Firefox works fine with no updates, but after updating to (Firefox - 93.0+build1-0ubuntu0.21.04.1) it shows the same issue on this page https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/khelpcenter/fundamentals/ui.html#visualdict-drop-down-box

Guest: POP OS 21.04 Kernel: 5.11.0-7620-generic

I also tried on Boxes-Manjaro (Firefox 91.0-1) and works fine, then I updated it to 93.0-1 and have issues as well on the page https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/khelpcenter/fundamentals/ui.html#visualdict-drop-down-box.

Guest: Manjaro KDE 21.1.0 Kernel: 5.13.11-1-MANJARO

On all of this OS, pressing left click on the image solves the problem temporarily, scrolling down or up makes the blinking appear again

My final thoughts are the KDE docs page uses a lot of fancy links which probably is not standard for a general web page which leads on unexpected issues on newer version of Firefox, a workaround would be installing deb packages of Firefox 91 because is stable and trusty and installing new one if needed, a caveat would be updating manually. In any case I would like to know what else would causing

I am not sure how it happened, but when I click on a link in my Gmail, it defaults to opening in the Shopping container. I cannot find a way to reset this behavior. I can only right-click on a link and select which container in which to open a new tab, but this does not change the default behavior thereafter.

Furthermore, I cannot see in the Firefox preferences tab a way to reset preferences for a specific container.
