I first mentioned this in r/Firefox, and was asked to re-post here.

My FF just updated to 127.0.1 even though I have "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" and told it to wait. This was on a Windows 11 box. Everything seemed fine, but then one of my tabs crashed. I selected the reload tab option, at which point it informed me it could not load the tab because a background update had happened and I was now required to restart Firefox.

I'm not certain what version of FF I was on, I believe it was either 126 or 126.0.1.

Now, to be completely fair, I cannot with 100% certainty say that I clicked on the update later option. That said, as I _did not want to update then_, and I have put off the update before, it seems unlikely I would have made the mistake, but I wasn't recording everything I did so I can't play it back and prove it. My initial reaction was to associate it with the tab crashing somehow, as everything was working as expected right up until that moment.

Thanks

Something isn't right with Firefox formatting especially when I'm in my Email system and Facebook and probably others . . . not all of the marker and colors are appearing but the photos look OK.

For example, what I am typing here . . . the letters are not a consistent "black" . . . some letters look sort of faint while some are full black and OK. Kind of hard to describe but it indicates that something is not completely working properly.

If you can, please call me at [edited] and/or Email: [edited]

problem when loading local files via "Open All as a Tree", using Tree Style Tab

Hello, I need to preserve the tree structure of my tabs between Firefox sessions. For this I use the following process : 1) While Tree Style Tab is displayed in the sidebar, I "Select All Tabs" ; then I "Bookmark Selected Trees" ; this creates a bookmark folder (let's name it "2024-07-24 -- Foobar") containing all my tabs, and the tree structure is preserved thanks to the ">>>" TST adds in font of the bookmark names.

2) Now, in another session of Firefox, I display the Bookmarks in the sidebar, andI I "Open all as a Tree" the folder "2024-07-24 -- Foobar". All the tabs are loaded, as well as the tree structure, which can be verified when Tree Style Tab is displayed in the sidebar.

Well, till now everything works fine, as long as tabs concern web pages. But when I tried the same process with tabs showing local files ("file:///D:/.../..."), things went wrong : Firefox prefixes ALL my file names with "about:blank?" ("about:blank?file:///D:/.../..." is displayed in the search bar), and all the tab show a blank page.

I suspect Firefox cannot load the local files, as it generally shows the "about:blank" page when it cannot load a page. But, if I try to "Open in new Tab" an individual bookmark contained in the folder "2024-07-24 -- Foobar", the local file is correctly loaded and displayed. So the problem seems to be linked to the interaction between TST and Firefox (but, as I said previously, only for local files, not for web pages).

First image : folder-creation.png : - upper sidebar : TST shows the tree structure - lower sidebar : the bokmark folder "2024-07-24 -- Foobar" has been created by "Bookmark Selected Trees"

Second image : folder-loading.png - after "Open all as a Tree" on the folder "2024-07-24 -- Foobar", all the local file bookmarks are loaded as a blank page.

Thanks to anybody who can provide some help.

Just moved from win 7 to win11. Pity me. Used sync prior to using FF on 11. Sites I remained signed into with 7 now have to be signed in every time with win11. Even if Firefox isn't closed between visits. ex: Youtube, forum sites, etc. I don't know if this is FF or win11 doing it. I didn't change any settings in FF on 11. Any help or direction appreciated.

A while back the behavior of the ctrl+shift+t shortcut changed from reopening tab in the current window to reopening tab in the current window or reopening last closed window which for me and a lot of other people too made it worse. There's been a thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1421356 but it's been archived without a real solution. Is there now a way like a about:config toggle to bring back the old functionality? I really miss the old behavior.

I'm using openSUSE Tumbleweed and KDE Plasma. Ever since I updated to Plasma 6.1, Firefox crashes constantly when using Wayland. I'm not having this problem if I'm using X11. Crash reports are sent after every crash so I'm sure someone can reference these. When starting Firefox from a console, I got this message after a crash: "[GFX1-]: Wayland protocol error: wp_linux_drm_syncobj_surface_v1#67: error 5: explicit sync is used, but no release point is set"

Will this get fixed with the next Firefox update? Currently using 127.0.

A week or so ago (About the 18th July) I found that I could no longer log into eBay with Firefox.

When I try to log in it comes up with a big read banner with the words "We ran into a problem. Please try again later." inside it.

Using any other browser works.

I am just assuming an update, either Firefox or Windows has broken something.

I disabled my Firewall to see if that had any effect... no, it didn't.

I am not running any ad blockers.

I have also found others who have suffered the same issue on another forum.

Any idea's?

Cheers, Glenn
