On my video gallery page, some of my videos are stand alone and others are a series of two or more videos. When you click on the series, it takes you to the page where all the ones in the series are housed, but then when you click on one of the videos in that series, I receive a prompt from FIREFOX: Receiving prompt on my created web site "FIREFOX CAN'T OPEN THIS PAGE" Open site in new window...

This totally messes up my ease of use for customers and is keeping them from following through. I would like this feature disabled if possible. Any work around for this?

Thank you for any help and consideration! -Carol Ragsdale ([email]@msn.com) www.westmarionbaptistchurch.com

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1.

My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easiest solution I found was the one offered by delclemons (2018) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1229621#question-reply.

My starting page is blank. I have an extension that shows my external IP as a country flag when FF starts up. If the flag doesn't show, I know I still cannot connect to any site. Similar to Zaayl's case, my FF can be able to connect to sites only after a certain amount of time, which varies from instant - very rarely - up to over 10 minutes. The wait always gets longer, especially when FF crashes and have to restart.

I've been searching a long, long time for the right fix. I cringe at the idea that I have to reinstall FF every time there's a major issue, like this one. Syncing back bookmarks and passwords and reinstalling the extensions are the easy part. The painful part is having to set details of accounts in the containers afterwards. I am so glad that is over now. Connection to sites is no longer prolonged after FF startup.

I wanted to thank the persons concerned, but I couldn't reply to their messages, which are now archived. So, I decided to post a new one here to do that; also, to help users who have to same issue as mine.

I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.

Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.

(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.

"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."

Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.

Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.

Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.

Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.

Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?


To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.

hi

I get messages to install new updates that assure me that my open windows will be restored but that is not true. I have done installs and my windows were not restored. I have been careful to make sure that I do it when I get the message assuring me that my windows will be restored and yet again. They are not. I have done what the help section recommends and try to restore them from Settings and History and was not able to. This really sucks. I do lots of research and need to switch back and forth. Mozilla can you do it better? Forcing the update when I am not ready sucks. There has got to be a better way! It just happened again tell me how to fix this please!

Hello, I've tried to use google but Firefox won't let me. I have no Idea how to fix this, but had the same problem yesterday and it went away automaticly and now it's back again. Does someone know how to fix this problem permanently?

"Kein Verbindungsversuch unternommen: Mögliches Sicherheitsproblem

Firefox hat ein mögliches Sicherheitsrisiko erkannt und daher www.google.com nicht aufgerufen, denn die Website benötigt eine verschlüsselte Verbindung.

Was können Sie dagegen tun?

www.google.com verwendet eine Sicherheitstechnologie namens "HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)", durch welche Firefox nur über gesicherte Verbindungen mit der Website verbinden darf. Daher kann keine Ausnahme für die Website hinzugefügt werden.

Am wahrscheinlichsten wird das Problem durch die Website verursacht und Sie können nichts dagegen tun.

Falls Sie sich in einem Firmennetzwerk befinden oder Antivirus-Software einsetzen, so können Sie jeweils deren IT-Support kontaktieren. Das Benachrichtigen des Website-Administrators über das Problem ist eine weitere Möglichkeit.

Weird thing is, that there clearly is an certificate.

How do I get the login screen to appear? I have disabled enabled Pop Up Windows for this site, but it still won't load the login screen. It works in Troubleshoot mode. What does that mean and how do I get it to load the login screen in normal mode?

I could click, hold, drag and drop but would be time consuming as I have too many folders.

How do unest all folders and keep all bookmarks together in single place?

Hello,

I am running Firefox v101.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux (Pop!_OS, installed as a flatpak). I am using the default system theme in dark mode, though switching to the Firefox dark theme or other themes does not change anything. When I allow the Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, etc.) to be present, the browser tabs on the next line are aligned correctly, going all of the way to the left. When I uncheck the Menu Bar, however, a gap appears to the left of the tabs. I have not seen this behavior on Firefox in other environments (Debian, RHEL, Windows), and I'm wondering if there's a way I can remove that gap. I have attached screenshots showing how the tabs are aligned with and without the Menu Bar.

Thanks so much!

There are two websites (at least) in which I've been receiving the same error message (see attached). Because these were sites I need for work, I first worked with IT Services and they first suggested clearing the cache. That did seem to work for about a week and a half. However, 2 days ago, it started happening again and now clearing the cache does not seem to work. I know it's a firefox issue because the pages load fine on Chrome.

Hi, I'm using version 101.0.1 (64 bit) for Ubuntu 22.04. When I open a link of a pdf file, the file is displayed in the built-in viewer, since I chose "Open in Firefox" in my settings. But then if I click the download icon nothing happens. If I click the print icon and choose "print to pdf" in the popup, then clicking on "save" does nothing and I have to click "cancel" to dismiss the popup.

Actually there is no way to save a pdf file but setting PDF app to "Ask always" and then open it with "System handler", but then the file is saved into the default download folder, even though I selected the checkbox "Always ask me where to save files" in my settings.

Whenever I press space to scroll one page down the cursor dissapears. The same thing happens when I press `. As soon as I move the mouse it reappears but this is unwanted and annoying behavior which didn't happen in the past. I'm not sure when it started happening but it hasn't been long since that. I tried restarting with all the plugins turned off but that didn't help. I'm using the latest version of FF on Win 7 x64.`
