Zoom meeting links not opening

This morning I re-installed an update to Zoom (on Linux - ElementaryOS / Ubuntu 18.04). Since installing, I've not been able to follow links from Firefox to Zoom (zoommtg links don't open the app). However, they still work from Epiphany.

The slight confounding factor is that I realised that I've been updated to FF 104 overnight, so that might be an issue.

I've been looking at network.protocol-handler.... settings in about:config, based on this article: https://superuser.com/questions/1343020/how-to-configure-firefox-open-zoom-urls-using-zoom-application#1351073

I've also been looking at xdg-settings (based on this article) https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/i83m8i/zoom_desktop_client_isnt_launching_from_browser/ which suggests the problems might be to do with xdg-settings calling /usr/share/applications/zoom.desktop when the available file is /usr/share/applications/Zoom.desktop However, I have not been able to alter the xdg-settings parameter - when I try: $ xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler zoommtg zoom.desktop it does not change the setting - it remains as Zoom.desktop

I should mention that the version of FF I'm running is delivered as a snap - but this was not a problem before 104 / my latest Zoom installation. Also, this version of FF has no problem opening up MS Teams meetings or Slack groups. handlers.json includes : ... "slack":{"action":4},"snap":{"action":4},"zoommtg":{"action":4},"msteams":{"action":4}}, .... so I am thinking the problem must lie somewhee else.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

thanks Andy

Yesterday for most of the day Yahoo mail was working fine. Last night I was able to pull up my emails, but all the controls were not working, Can't delete, arrow up or down, settings won't come up. It's like all the tabs are not highlighted to click on. I haven't done any updates, nothing changed. It's not Yahoo, works fine in Chrome.

Hi. Since FF v103 it seems, when working with a VPN, and then trying to use also a browser extension VPN, it either does not or does not connect until after 45s. Before it was immediate. It works in all other browsers (incl FF before v103). So this is a recent change in FF that harms normal VPN connections. I found out by trial and error, that changing the port of the VPN extension to 443 and disabling and enabling the extension and going back to v103 from v103.0.1 helped, but that should not be like that. So something has been broken in the latest v103.0.1 - please kindly look into it. Thank you!

Attempted to login to Canada Revenue Agency and it told me that Java Script had to be activated in the browser. How do I determine if it is activated and how do I activate it if it is not. The strange thing is I was on the site an hour before without any issues so I am at a bit of a loss as to what has happened. It may be an issue with the CRA.

Thanks Doug

Since the most current Firefox update in June 2022, when in Yahoo Mail and downloading an attachment, as the download complete, the Yahoo Mail tab is automatically closing, requiring I to go to 'History', then 'Recently Closed' tabs to re-open it. This happens Every.Single.Time I download photos and scanned docs from email. Again, this has never happened before - only with the recent Firefox update. I have 2021 a MacBook Pro.

I got an email awhile back stating Firefox was going to offer a VPN service, with a 30 free trial offer. MY question is does the Firefox VPN offer a split tunneling option like other VPN services offer? From what I understand, split tunneling is a feature where the VPN service will be active, or connected in one browser but then it would be disabled or disconnected in another browser. Can you please explain if I got that correct? Thank you.
