Desktop firefox shows mobile view of google and asana (+others) when browsing, but shows desktop view on private browsing.

Hi all, I am experiencing an issue where some site (such as google and asana) think I am on my phone. Other sites do not do this, but several that i use regularly do. I tried troubleshooting, and i noticed that when i use a private browser, google and asana look good on desktop, so that is why i think this is a firefox issue. Ive tried searching google and the knowledge base but all the searches think I WANT to view the mobile view on desktop (to check responsive design most likely), but I actually want to STOP seeing the mobile view on desktop.

NOTE - this seemed to happen right after I selected an ad to be hidden using the AdBlock extension on an article i was reading. i dont know if this is relevant or not, but i deleted the app anyway. This did not fix the issue though.

Anyone seen this issue before?

After starting Firefox. If I navigate to a page to soon it jumps back to the start page again (about:blank for me). Like it's restaring again somewhat. Just before the page is reste there seems like a windows opening in the bottom right but it closes before I manage to see content. Only add-on I have i uBlock Origin. Do you have any idea why this is happening. Is there some log I can look at or enable to see what is really happening? 73.0b7 x64 on Windown 10

I'm trying to automate a part of my daily work on a website I'm using (not developping). I have to crawl several lists on the website, dig an item in the list, to check some values, and do it again and again ...

Im used to developping in Powershell and python, not with a web browser. I have admin rights on the machine I'm working on. I'd like to use this to catch the json answers of the website (all of them), parse the answers for some values, and automate some kind of popup "Hey, This item in the list is between 90 and 100 !"

No code to show yet, that's what i'm looking for : basic solution for json interception while i'm crawling. I have good knowledge of json parsing using python/powershell, the hard part for me is catching the answers ...

A real time export of all json answers of the network console will be a perfect basis for this ... How can this be done with firefox extension ? I just need a base to start.

Thank you very much for any help you can give. And apologies for my average english ...

I found https://developer.mozilla.org/ko/docs/Download_Mozilla_Source_Code, which points to ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/, but this address times out. Perhaps MDN is obsolete in this area? I can't find the Firefox source code. I expected to find it in GitHub, but I don't think it is there. Can anyone help? I may have some followup questions, so please answer if you like to hand-hold people. I want to try to fix a bug (I have 40 years experience as a software engineer in many languages).

I have tried 7.2 Firefox several times only with failure. When it does install I can only use it for a minutes before it freezes up. This has happened 3 times just reading Mozilla.org help pages. I have tried the windows 64 version and it didn't work at all. The 7.3 beta version worked the best out of them working for several minutes before becoming non-responsive. 7.3 beta also installed in minutes versus a quarter hour. however it started to freeze up again like 7.2 and there was no images or other things going on that would take a large draw on the processor. Since I have read about prior versions of the software preventing future installs from working like Mozilla profile is not usually uninstalled like it says on your website I cleaned as much of Firefox off as I could including using Kaspersky disk cleaners. 7.3 beta will not install anymore.

I have tried running the firefox installer as administrator. I have taken all flash players off the computer and anything from Adobe. Turning off hardware accelerator causes it to freeze up instantly.

I have tried to turn on the crash reporter option in settings but it dosen't seem to work.

The worst part is it seems nothing I have done can actually remove it and it is running in the background and interfering with other web browsers.

I have even tried CCleaner and it only freezes up.

Any help would be welcome.

Force firefox to use unicode

I've had a problem on a particular page on my website that has resisted all attempts at analysis and fixing for years: the page renders in Western font in my FF browser (in all my PCs), whilst in a colleague's browser (from another country) it renders fine in Unicode. It also renders fine in Unicode on my PC when using Chrome, and Edge, and Opera. Only Firefox is a problem.

I would be happy if I could just tell FF to render every single page I ever visit in Unicode by default. But I have go to View > Text Encoding > Unicode every single time I visit this page.

For info, I'll paste everything in the page before the <body> tag:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <title>xxx</title> <base href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/admin/Gross_Profit_Reports.html"></base> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/reset.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/text.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/images/favicon.gif" /> <script src="../js/jquery-1.9.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="../js/jquery.stickytableheaders.min.js"type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script src="../js/sspextras.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="../js/common.js"></script> <meta charset="utf-8"></head>


Although we use <meta charset="utf-8"> now, we've previously had it as <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">, but that has been similarly unsuccessful.

I'm happy to make changes on the browser side in the webpage, but I really want to solve this. Grateful for any help.

Bug voting is open. Your help file says "Click on the "(vote)" link that appears on the right of the "Importance" fields." I do not know what an importance field is. The word "importance" does not appear on the page. The word "vote" does not appear either. THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THIS LINK ARE NOT FOR REGULAR USERS: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=voting.html

Where is the vote button??? Here is the page where I want to vote: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1581664

As a beginner, I see nothing at the end of this page to be notified if responded. If I dont' get notified, I probably wont be able to find my way back here. Why so difficult for non-power users?!?
