I have several profiles for logging into HMRC's Government Gateway to access my HMRC services. I can log in with my Username and Password but when I enter the Access Code (sent to my mobile) the website goes back to the login page, it won't let me in. If I do the same on Microsoft Edge, there is no issue and I can login without any problems. I tried the 'Forget about this website' fix and also cleared the cache in Firefox. I will not delete all my cookies as they are vital for all my access to financial and government website access. Some profiles (different Username) will let me in (for certain Government Services) but others won't. It is not an issue with HMRC as Microsoft Edge seems to work. Can anyone provide a solution to this issue or have also experienced this issue? Thanks. René

I have been working on a locked down version of Firefox, and through userChrome.css and mozilla.cfg, I have been able to do get it where it behaves mostly as intended. We are looking for a way to disable the ability to print to PDF within the print dialog in Firefox. There are concerns about the ability to access the dropdown selections within the save as dialogs, that could allow users to access files they should not have access. We don't want to outright disable the ability to print, as printing to a real printer does not cause any issues. Is it possible through the mozilla.cfg or userChrome.css to remove the option to save as a PDF from the Firefox printer dialog?

Thanks for your help!

I am not able to load any games on Facebook using Firefox,the game main page loads and the spinning loading just stops and goes no further. All other browsers do not have this problem, chrome loaded fine, Microsoft Edge loaded fine. I was able to get it to work for a short bit last night on Firefox by totally removing Firefox, including folders last night, shut down, tried today and issue has returned. I have tried all the steps in the forums, nothing is working, why is it only Firefox doing this?

Hopefully someone out there is a hiker/backpacker who the AllTrails app with Firefox. I use AllTrails to plan and record my hike. While hiking I take photos which record the Latitude and Longitude where the photo is taken. I can then upload those to my hike on AllTrails. Unfortunately, the photo upload feature does not work with Firefox. I must therefore switch to Edge, something I do not want to do. Hopefully there is an add-on or something to solve this problem...

Do you (as a Mac user) experience the same or similar:

44 instances of FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content ranging from 60MB-918MB each, with 18 of them above 200MB and 5 of them above 400MB. I have 15 tabs open and in practical terms almost nothing else open on the computer (a brand new M3 silicon iMac). It has 8 GB of memory. I had similar experiences in the past, but never as bad as now. I do not know everybody else can live with this.

Is this how Firefox is designed to operate or is this a bug?

Thanks.

I am an application developer for a customer information system and we have dozens of clients using our web based product.

Some users recently updated to firefox version 123 and are reporting issues in two different areas of our product. Both of these areas involve java script. These clients running under prior version of firefox did not have any problem and if they switch to another browser the issue is resolved. But they need to run using firefox. I have the recent version of firefox and an older version and am able to re-produce the behavior. I will also provide a screen shot of the page working and the page not working as well.

The issue is, we have a payment page in our application. The user enters a payment amount and our page then fills in several values for them and as other values are entered eventually an Add Payment button is enabled. What is not happening is when the payment is entered the action is not run and the page treats the field as not existing and eventually displays a required field icon. There is nothing the user can do at that point to get the Add Payment button to get enabled.

After switching to Firefox version 123, I encountered an error on our website: '1,000,000.00 is not a valid number.'

I usually have firefox running. Sometimes I want to display a file on my computer in firefox. Until today (don't know what happened today) I could; firefox would add a new tab for display of that file. Now it gives me an error, reports, 'Firefox is already running, but not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile'. This is inconvenient.

Highlighting with the mouse is full of glitches. It never works right. It either stops highlighting or highlights opposite the direction I'm moving the mouse.

I need to summarize a recent medical encounter; the hospital's 234 pages are out of temporal order and have many repeats. I want to put it in time order and delete the repeats. It's a PDF, and since I can't use Acrobat anymore, I read PDFs in Firefox.

Not once have I been able to mark a section of text properly. There seem to be some forbidden areas: I highlight what I can, transfer it, then go back for the rest, but it won't highlight.

Ctl-A highlights it. I often do that and delete the excess, but that's inconvenient.

I can open the same file in xpdf and mark without trouble, but I don't like xpdf.

For this doc, I converted the PDF to text with pdf2text, but it's harder to read. I identify target text in Firefox, then find it in the text version, use emacs to copy from the original to my summary.

I've tried a fresh battery in the mouse. Every other app works.

For years I've been able to input a website keyword (let's say "cnn" like in an old report I ran across) and the "www." and ".com" portions would be added without my typing them. Some time ago, this started to fail. Why?

I tried about:config changes that were said to work with the old "cnn" problem report but nothing helps for me.

Also, I use the local Windows Hosts file to give my router a quick reference name to get into it. That too has worked for years but began to fail last year. Inconvenient. The best I could track this down, it has something to do with forced DNS lookups and skipping the old Hosts file. If so, any work around to get my system simplicity back?

Help is appreciated. I liked the challenge of computer geekdom 30 years ago but I'm getting too old for this, well, you know the old saying.
