Occassionally, but reproducable enough Firefox gets the wrong ip address for images that are loaded. It happens in firefox for mac/linux/windows and from multiple locations. It never happens in Chrome/Safari.

https://ov1.flamingtext.com/a2.html

Load the above page, if you see "CoolLogo.com" then the bug has shown itself. If it doesn't happen, reload.

What is crazy is that it only happens for these ov10 and ov11 machines, and they get the other's ip.


I know what you are thinking, it's my DNS or something odd about my setup. Either on the client or server. But I believe I've eliminated that possibility. I'm still suspicious that we are doing something wrong, but when I see the wrong IP address in the dev tool, I'm not sure where else to look.

geoipdns config (authorative dns is ns1/ns2/n3.registerbot.com which I control). +ov10-engine.flamingtext.com:51.79.78.56:1200 #ov10 +ov11-engine.flamingtext.com:51.79.78.58:1200 #ov11 (there are no other entries), and true for all three name servers.

confirmed with dig, nslookup and ping. from multiple locations around the world. with at least 5 different ISP's. There are no entries in my /etc/hosts. The ip address is always correct. It's only wrong in firefox.

Any ideas?

I have tried on windows and on linux, and the same thing happens for both. I don't get the plugins i should have. I want to try and enable java, but its not even appearing in the first place. My profile directory is all messed up as well. I don't have a pluginreg.dat, my extensions.sqlite is an extensions.json. I have been reading all the forums but they mention stuff about the files in the profile, but I don't have those files.

I am building a website and, for the last couple of days, when I make changes to the CSS file they are no longer being picked up by the browser by which I mean they aren't displayed in the web page nor in the developer tools inspector.

They are visible in Chromium browser and dev tools.

I have cleared the cache and refreshed the page to no avail. It is only when I restart the browser that the new style rules take effect in the browser and show up in the dev tools.

Mozilla Firefox does not work when disabling the encryption key TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA (0xc014)

Dear Mozilla team,

We are a company that develops web systems. The customer’s security service asks us to close all old encryption keys on the server in order to avoid system vulnerabilities and use only new keys. We disabled most of the old keys and the system works fine on all browsers. As soon as we turn off the encryption key TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA (0xc014), then all web systems stop working through the Mozilla Firefox browser. (At the same time, everything works correctly on other browsers). The Mozilla Firefox Documentation says that this browser supports new encryption keys and can work without old encryption keys. Link (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Security/Server_Side_TLS). Also on our server are included all the necessary encryption keys for Mozilla Firefox to work.

Do you have any ideas on how to solve this?

FF auto-updated to 89.0.1, now a site won't work, would like to RESTORE deleted/cleared COOKIES (?!?!) for that site to see if it will help cuz deleted the cookie for it made things worse! Doesn't work under Private FF session either!!

Specifics: I am the Webmaster of (we use WIX to create/manage it) 12cdrc.org and it is working fine using Edge, Chrome, Brave, but no longer works correctly (since 89.0.1, I think happened late last night early this morning on my system) update. Most of the page loads, but the Calendar and display tweets sub-windows will not load! It will be obvious to all where they should be displaying but are not!

So, I tried removing 12cdrc.org cookies. Things got worse! Now the Login won't work either, where I was logged in as my user for the site prior to that.

I tried a Private window/session, and the Login function does work, the Calendar does show, but the tweets sub-section/window still does not display/function.

Background: This is not the first website to malfunction using Firefox... Previous version updates broke the rescuemichigan.com website (none of the pull-down menu functions work, but work fine on/with Brave, Chrome, Edge)! Also mewe.com acts up using FF at times, but a clear of the mewe.com related cookies and relogin at mewe via FF clears up the issues of things not wanting to display correctly or fully on mewe using FF - which is why I thought clearing 12cdrc.org cookies would help in this case (but did not, again, made the malfunctioning worse)!

This makes little sense. I even tried doing D/L of full 89.0.1 install, didn't help.

I'd like to try and RESTORE COOKIES (last thing I want to do is clear all data/cookies for FF) for 12cdrc.org from manual offload of all my userid appdata folder/sub-folders to an external drive (or perhaps appdata backup to Norton cloud backup done a few weeks ago)! But I do not know where to look. Was about to go to my external drive and do complete file search of "12cdrc*.*" to see what would return when I thought I could search Mozilla/FF Help on "Restore Cookies" but only very old question for very old version of FF showed up and it said "IF STILL NEED HELP ASK NEW QUESTION" so here I am doing so!!!

Again, all sites (12CDRC.org, MeWe.com, and RescueMichigan.com) ALL WORK 100% error/issues free using Brave, Chrome, Edge, so this is FIREFOX SPECIFIC and all these issues have started under/after recent FF updates and/or gotten worse, not fixed/better, under updates/upgrades!!!!

Appreciate any Help... 1) like I said, where the Cookies are hidden that I might then recover them from previous save 2) other suggestions?!?!?!

I have a question regarding PWA support on Firefox desktop. I am not sure how to frame this correctly, but I hope I am able to list the problem statement.

Basically, I plan to migrate my existing mobile and desktop website to single PWA based responsive website. Right now, I have mobile website which is a PWA, and a desktop website. Goal is to have a single PWA based responsive website for both mobile and desktop platform. However, I want to make sure the proposed website will work with Firefox desktop. From what I could find Firefox doesn't support option to install PWA as an app with it's own shortcut as it is possible in Chrome. But I want to make sure it supports rest of the features of PWA, and website still works correctly in terms of UI and experience as in case when it is accessed from Chrome browser.

Appreciate a response on this. In case you require more clarity on the problem statement, do let me know.

Hi there,

I work for a small UK based charity and we use our website to take orders for our programmes, we deliver DARE programmes in the UK.

Our website is https://lifeskills-education.co.uk.

We use WordPress as our CMS and use Formidable Forms to create forms for people to place orders; these forms work fine in Chrome and Edge, but will not display in Firefox. I have tried everything, disabling third party scripts, all plugins, themes and more, but Firefox refuses to show them. It sees the HTML, but when inspected the HTML is greyed out. It is not greyed out on Chrome.

https://lifeskills-education.co.uk/resources/the-dare-primary-programme/ is the page where an order form should show on the left above the fold. It is titled Place an Order.

There is nothing I can find anywhere that can help me with this issue, Google has come up blank and I am not a web developer so don't have the tech chops to track this down.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Hello,

I think I have discovered a hidden, rather small error in Firefox.

If I load my website: ECstep.com (the homepage of my site) and click the cholesterol picture or the trans fat picture, you should go to: https://ecstep.com/fat/#cholesterol or https://ecstep.com/fat/#trans%20fats. respectively, but instead you go to the bottom of the https://ecstep.com/fat/ after a temporary glimpse of the right position on the page. However, if you click the fatty acids picture on the homepage you are transferred to the correct place: https://ecstep.com/fat/#fatty%20acids and stay there.

I have tried Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge and these browsers do not produce the same problem. For that reason I think the problem lies in Firefox and not in my website code.

I hope this information is useful to you.

Best regards,

Erik Christensen

Hi,

I am an Etsy shop owner. I have been told that Firefox is the best browser to use for adding new listings and editing existing listings in my Etsy shop.

However, the problem that I am having with Firefox is this: when I want to either add a listing or edit one, I get a yellow bar at the top that says: A website is slowing down your computer, either click stop it or wait. I have tried both and both give me the same problem. The 'radio' buttons become unusable on the site and I cannot click on them anymore (such as the Publish button, for example). So I am unable to save any of my work and must just shut down. I have also tried do nothing and this just freezes everything.

This is very very frustrating and counterproductive. PLEASE HELP ME!

Dear community,

I would like to bring up a topic that is DRIVING ME CRAZY. I am developer and frequently access my own services on unsecured http servers for testing. Spin up a new docker container, test it, tear it down. No SSL required, no time to mess with encryption.

But if you type in https just a single time for your http server, you are f*#&ed. Sorry for the wording, but this is how it is. You think "OH NO, WHAT DID I DO? NOT AGAIN!!!" Because it is just impossible to access the service with http in the future, Firefox has it locked to SSL (Domain and Port). But of course there is no SSL so it will NEVER work.

Latest example: JetBrains TeamCity. They have a simple Docker container I want to access with Firefox. I spin it up, connect with Firefox with http and it immediately tells me "Secure Connection Failed". WHAT? WHY? I typed http. Why secure? Why can't I simply connect? Using curl on CLI just gives me a beautiful HTML response.

I understand that for the majority of users SSL is a good thing. But shouldn't there at least be an OPTION to disable all this enforced SSL usage? My beloved Firefox is my everyday productivity killer. It makes me sad.
