I have been using Firefox as my default browser in Windows for a number of years without problems until recently. However I now find that, when I log on to sites where I have accounts, I am not automatically signed in. When I select sign in I am taken to a sign-in page where, on some accounts, , my usernames and passwords are already filled in. I have tried following Firefox guidelines with regard to settings and options, all to no avail. Can you assist me please.

Since a week or two my Firefox tabs are crashing more and more often. At work on MacBook and at home on PC.

Deleting the cache and cookies and even starting in Safe Mode are not helping - in fact while writing this very message had 5 crashes meanwhile!

Don't know if you can access the crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/4cd570db-d90d-4fcb-aee6-0a1660230818

Hi, I have tried to create a google account two times. Each time Firefox didn't save the google account name.

Firefox did save the password though. Just the username is empty. So, the third time I will write down the username.

I know how to create a Google account. Pretty sure it will work. My question is, why is this happening? Am I paranoid thinking Google doesn't like to support Firefox?

Best regards

DNS over HTTPS oddities: fallback, TRR mode

After a recent change of my website's name registrar, Firefox (both on Linux and Android) has been running into issues finding the server/address. I suspect this has something to do with DNS, whether it be DNS over HTTPS (DoH) or otherwise.

Specifically, this seems to happen when DoH is on (as shown by about:preferences#privacy). I have confirmed that `curl --doh-url <cloudflare DNS query> <my website>` also fails to resolve the request.

This leaves me with a few outstanding questions:

  • Do I have any control of whether the DoH request fails? Is this something I can fix through my host or name registrar?
  • The TRR mode shown in about:preferences#privacy appears to be different than the one shown in about:config (2 versus 0, respectively).
  • Shouldn't Firefox be falling back to normal DNS? I have confirmed via `curl` that my website works fine over https.

Firefox and curl results for Linux confirmed on two machines on the same network.

Using MX-21.3_ahs_x64 Wildflower. Since upgrading Firefox to version 116.0.3 all links within www.onlinetvrecorder.com do not work anymore. No messages, no hints what happened, just not working. Vivaldi has the same problem, Chrome works. I have asked in mozillazine, but did not get an answer.

Hi, I have a problem and I can't find any solution.

I am Linux Mint Cinnamon user, When I type Korean in the Firefox Browser, type Korean word and type 'spacebar', blank is made before the last character.

For example, like this. '안녕하세 요', '반갑습니 다', '오늘 은뭐하세?요 ' like 'firefo x', 'googl e' How can I solve this problem?

Since a few days, it is not possible to copy-and-paste any external text or content into the text field of WhatApp Web on Firefox. It works fine on Chrome. Also text manually copied from a previous WA message can be pasted.

We tried on other PCs with Firefox and Chrome, same situation. So it seems to be a problem of Firefox latest version.

I am unable to sign into Costco.com using Firefox. I get an error message:

    "Bad Request - Header Field Too Long

Turning off all extensions didn't help. Opening a private browsing window DID work. Using Chrome DID work.

Thanks!

Hi folks.

I use Firefox a lot. I have about 36 windows of firefox open and some of those can have a LOT of tabs on/in them.

I have recently "evolved" to using a computer monitor. Before then it was an old flat screen TV - 1336 x 768 resolution (there about).

Now I have a 1080p monitor and things are different.

I use Node-Red (dashboards) and they took a beating with the new size.

I've set THOSE tabs to 133% magnification - and yes that isn't the correct size to emulate the TV. But I only thought of doing this a fair way down the track of trying to rearrange the layouts. (MY MISTAKE)

But I realised that at least not too long down that rabbit hole.

So that WINDOW is set to 133% zoom. But just now I tried to zoom out of another tab on that window and realised that the zoom on the other tabs is changed too.  :(

Am I missing any tricks? I know I could move THOSE tabs to a whole new window and that's that. But in the bigger picture I just want to check.

Hi Mozilla Team,

I recently had a catastrophic issue with my computer and had to do a factory reset. I was removing my dead name from my folder structure and profile on my machine, and this caused it to bork...I know even my silicon hardware is transphobic *sigh*. I know there are articles talking about this issue, and I know for security and privacy your policy is that all bookmarks are lost with a password reset.

However, these bookmarks are very very invaluable, and contain so much information regarding my transition, my career, etc. I just really would love to try and find a way to recover these if at all possible. I know you and your team make recovery possible in an slew of ways, and I really don't know if I set any of those up. I thought I might of, but I am still picking up the pieces from this reset. I know I should have been more proactive about recovery and really thought I was, and I am really kicking myself for not being more explicit/diligent.

I am happy to go through any verification process. I know you have policies for a reason, but I can't just give up on so much important information. There is a years worth of memories during a time, where memories and identity are shifting. I am literally begging to not lose this data.

Best, Jean Ferrante

In your reply to my previous question, I checked with the Bank... their tech people checked it is coming from the firefox Mozilla side of communications. Firefox is stopping the copying process on my browser. Keeps coming up Error- reset tab or close. Mozilla NEEDS to FIX this Problem immediately. It may be time to give up on Mozilla/FireFox. Been there for years, and now having several issues. Please advise?

I use FF 116 on windows 11. For months, I have had problems logging in to web sites. At first I thought the problem was with the web site, but I have come to the conclusion it is an FF problem. GlobeandMail.com, gem.cbc.ca and rbc.com for example ask for me to log in. I go through the steps giving my password and login name and the web site seems to accept these without complaint but it continues to want me to log in. I end up having to use Edge which works fine. Is there a solution?
