Hi, my shortcuts have all disappeared. I've looked on the browser.newtabpage.pinned and all of my saved websites are listed there. But when I open a new tab they're all blank and I can't seem to add any new shortcuts either. (Also I'm not good with technology so if you do have a suggestion on how I can fix this please tell me exactly where I need to type in a command or whatever because I didn't realise I could do that until just now.) All my bookmarks are still there and obviously it remembers my saved sites so? Thanks :•)

Why can't Firefox print correctly what Safari can?

I am trying to print specs for a computer (beck & front) at:

https://www.dell.com/support/manuals/en-us/xps-8960-desktop/xps-8960-setup-and-specifications/back?guid=guid-f2dda353-ba5a-44c0-b85f-6bf1b8c70d15&lang=en-us

The print-out with Firefox captures only half on the picture and relevant info. Luckily, Safari prints correctly. I am wondering why can't Firefox do the job so I do not have to go to Safari for printing? This issue is not specific to this website, it happens often in many other cases. Is this being worked on? Thanks.

I use multi-account containers extensively. Unfortunately, my laptop recently broke so I had to pull out my desktop which was in storage. I hadn't used my desktop in a few years, so I had to update Firefox to make it work.

Then I discovered that the multi-account container feature no longer works. It says it isn't supported in this latest version.

Is there any good way to fix this?

The multi-account container feature was what finally let me switch to the safety and privacy of Firefox. Prior to that, I used Chrome, but the multi-account containers were even better since I didn't have to tie a different account to each container.

It looks like I could roll Firefox back to an earlier version, but that would require creating an entirely new firefox account. It took me a substantial amount of time to get this one set up the way I like. I understand that you all want to protect my data, but frankly I feel like I've been put between a rock and a hard place.

Thank you for any help you are able to provide.

I am using FF 115.7.0 on a Mac. I normally use tabs but when I need a new window, it opens with every one of my bookmarks in a tab. I can open a subject in a new window from an article in a tab from a different window but I just can't open an empty window without getting all of my bookmarks opened in (many!) separate tabs.

Thanks for any help.

For the longest time (can't pinpoint when it started) I've been having issues with Firefox on desktop (Macbook) playing videos and occasionally audio. Video playback will be functioning fine, then there seems to be a "trigger"...For ex. I have noticed this is often me trying to play a Twitter video, which won't play normally, and suddenly NO video playback of any kind (and sometimes audio) will work...Youtube, Netflix, you name it.

The only thing that "fixes" the issue (until it pops up again the next time) is quitting Firefox and starting it back up again, usually clearing my cache first for good measure. I have tried disabling all extensions and it has no effect. I have tried playing the video in a private window/incognito—no effect. If I open up Chrome and try to play the same videos I have absolutely no issues.

My Firefox says it is currently up to date, though I am running an older version iOS (Mojave). I have googled and seen many other people having this issue but haven't seen anyone chime in with a fix that actually works. Any ideas?

about.ef2a7dd5-93bc-417f-a698-142c3116864f.mozilla This ‘cookie’ (no size shown) has been showing up on my Firefox ‘manage website data’ since at least March ’23 and it will NOT delete. It may not be 'a real cookie' but I still can’t get rid of it.

When I searched online for that apparent address I found: https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/applications/tor-browser/-/issues/40175 The info near the top of that site’s page: Torbutton INFO: tor SOCKS: http://expyuzz4wqqyqhjn.onion/static/images/home/png/block-trackers@3x.png?h=70991bcb via --unknown--:cc55771ba6d6e8c6542066863a47e223 SOCKS is a username? And the ‘onion/hidden service’ address cannot be accessed unless using the Tor browser? So that seems a dead end for me.

I have seen 3 other people posting here in the past year about this particular cookie. hobro1 did an uninstall & still had to remove directories manually after getting some answers from several others. blazee decided – based on the answer given by jscher 2000 – that it probably wasn’t dangerous. mekishev 1 received an answer from cor-el that is incomprehensible to me, except for saying ‘it isn’t a real cookie’. I understand it may not 'a real cookie' but then why is it showing up in 'manage website data' where everything else is a cookie?

Can anyone help, please? I’m about to migrate over to a new computer and really don’t want to take this with me. I don’t like the fact that it persists, and that the cookies ‘keeper’ – SOCKS maybe? – is completely hidden.

Thanks much in advance for any assistance!

PS The only possible explanation I've come up with for how it got this cookie is when I was checking out some Firefox extensions; I didn’t even know what Tor was till trying to figure this out.

My website (onefishfoundation.org) will not load on Firefox. Instead, I get the "Secure Connection Failed" message with the above statement. This just started happening today. My website loads fine It loads with every other browser.

I've tested my certificates on SSLShopper and WhyNoPadlock and there were no issues on either. I've cleared the cache and history on my browser.

I've closed and re-opened the browser.

How do I fix this?

Thanks,

Comcast (Xfinity) requested that I change my webmail password. I have https://login.xfinity.com on the list of exceptions for cookies and site data to ALLOW. Regardless, Firefox doesn't allow me to do a password reset.

I used Safari to change the password. It worked.

Since I use most of the time Firefox, I wanted to go back and login into Comcast webmail using Firefox with the new password. It doesn't let me and just tells me to reset my password.

This used to work in the past. Something had to be changed since I last changed passwords for webmail in later versions of Firefox.

Please let me know know what to do to enable me to continue to use Firefox for webmail. I have version 115.5. Thanks.

For the last several days (as of 12/20/2023) I have had issues with playback on sites including Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Dropout.tv (not YouTube). Error messages indicate that my browser is unsupported and I need the newest version of Firefox, but my browser is completely up-to-date. Pausing my adblocker on these sites does nothing to correct the issue, nor does restarting the browser or my computer.

Hello. The Owl Zoom add on for Firefox OSX has stopped working. No changes made to any options or add ons. Date noticed about mid- December 2023. Reverting Firefox to its state from before the issue occurred did not resolve the issue. This process does not work: "Click on 'Settings' and the pop up menu has an item for 'Zoom'. Click on 'Normal 100%' and a pop up list for several zoom values should appear but it does not appear. In addition there is no Owl Zoom icon in the video task bar. This has happened on two iMacs and one Macbook Pro at the same time so not device specific.

Whenever I change my VPN (not Mozilla VPN) status, Firefox will refuse to connect for something like 30 seconds then times out, leaving me with a blank screen. I have wait until that interval has passed before I can retry, otherwise it will repeat the freeze. This happens whenever I turn my VPN on/off or switch to a different VPN server. It happens only with Firefox. Chrome and my email client have no problems whatsoever. I think it's some kind of DNS caching problem within Firefox as the problem doesn't happen if I visit a site that I hadn't visited very recently. There's immediate response if I do that. I have DNS over HTTPS and secure DNS turned off in the settings, so it can't be those.

Anyone else have this problem? I wish there was some way to clear Firefox's DNS cache other than having to go into about:networking
