disable pop=up sign-in with google prompt LAPTOP WINDOWS 11 FIREFOX 105.0.3 64-BIT 1. Over the last few days I have been getting a sign in with Google prompt on most websites I visit. Please refer to the photos. This looks identical to the Google generated promt, however in my Google account settings I have this option turned off. Is this a Google bug or a Firefox thing? With all the other annoying popups these days, this is just another irritation frustration to view a website.

I USE DEV TOOLS from FIREFOX TOOLS TO FIGURE OUT IF IT'S FIREFOX OR GOOGLE CAUSING ISSUE. HERE IS ONE OF 50 LINES RELATING TO GOOGLE/TWITTER/FIREFOX CONVERGENCE

(ALSO, I USE UBLOCK & LASTPASS)

LINE FROM DEVELOPER CONSOLE WHEN I OPEN TAB TO TWITTER LOG-ON PAGE:

20:36:03.881 Google Analytics and Tag Manager is being shimmed by Firefox. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1713687 for details. sandbox eval code:1:9

I DON'T WANT TO CLOSE THIS POP-UP BUTTON EVERYTIME I GO TO LOG IN AT TWITTER, IT'S NEW. I HATE IT. HAVE DELETED TONS OF UNKNOWN FILES IN MY USER FOLDERS TODAY, NOTHING HELPED (LOCAL/GOOG FOLDER & TEMP FOLDERS). MAYBE I NEED TO RESET SOMETHING IN CONFIG OR A REGEDIT SETTING FOR FIREFOX. I'LL DO ANYTHING. Thanks!

Hello, I'm using a Synology NAS (DS220+) installed on my local network, behind my internet box). This NAS can be accessed both from the local network (https://192.168.1.nn:ppppp) and remotely across Internet (https://subdomain.domain:yyyyy). With Firefox I can access my NAS locally but not remotely. While this works fine with Chrome or Edge.

As my issue looks like another one on your support site ("Page won't load in Firefox, but works fine in any other browser", opened 7/1/21, 3:39AM), I applied part of the proposed solution: run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, cleared history, cookies, cache; did a refresh; removed then reinstalled Firefox, created a brand new profile. Without success.

Would you please have some ideas to help me? Thanks and regards Matteo

If the following can help: - My laptop: Dell Latitude 5431, CPU 12th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-1250P 1.70 GHz; RAM 16Gb - Windows 11 Professional, 22H2 build 22621.521 - Firefox 105.0.1 (64bits)

I want to know what caused the Firefox icon to disappear from my dock and be replaced by the generic icon. Firefox seems to continue to work well. I don't want to re-install it when it seems to work. However, I want to know what caused this to happen and if there is an easy way to restore it to the unique icon. I've read about the various remedies but don't want to take the time for a re-install when everything seems to be working.

Please just tell me the cause and if there is an easy solution.

When i visit microsofts website to download windows 10 iso it redirects me to download the media creation tool which complete bloatware nonsense, the redirect happens because im connecting to their website while using a windows device and their websites knows that by inspecting my useragent, when i visit the same website from a virtual linux machine im not redirected and can directly download the iso, this is utter bullshit obviously. is there any extension or a config tweak that i can use to temporarily edit my useragent so websites beleve im using linux while im using windows and vise versa?

Re your (partial email & apology) sent to me by mistake:

"Greetings, It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. You know what else was humbling? Sending out an email by mistake, full of out-of-context Sagan quotes being used as placeholder text (thank you, Sagan Ipsum)."

So I looked for the humor in it, but then remembered that since you "partner" with the cursed WEF, it's more likely an expression of a severe mental illness that characterizes all who "partner" with them, & thus only deranged types might find funny.

I try to configure DNS server on Synology NAS. NAS has static ip address(192.168.0.30) on local network. I installed DNS server and added zone(nas with A record my.nas - 192.168.0.30). DNS server also added to router.

I am sure that DNS server configured properly because when I do in command line: curl my.nas and curl 192.168.0.30 provide same successful response and dig my.nas also show expected response.

Proxy options and DoH **are disabled** in my Firefox. Futhermore, on page `about:networking#dnslookuptool` browser resolves `my.nas` correctly.(scrrenshot)

However when i enter `my.nas` into address bar in Firefox(Desktop and mobile) it can not resolve it (in my case forward me to NAS login page)

Dropdown lists are not displaying their contents when selected on certain websites, including eBay.

I have tried using Troubleshoot Mode and the dropdowns are still not displaying.

Here's an example where I am seeing this behaviour: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255536264049?var=555488018135

When I select the Resistance Level dropdown, nothing happens. It's the same for any listing that has a dropdown.

This issue occurs in both RPM and Flatpak instances of Firefox.

I have tried the same page in Chromium browser on the same computer and the dropdown functions correctly in that browser.

I have also noted the same behaviour on other websites, such as train booking sites, but I don't have any other examples to share at the moment. It isn't an isolated eBay issue anyway.

Any ideas? Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

At work I always log on to the Bendigo Bank to look at transactions on our bank account. I need to print them off once a week. Since last week the pages don't print properly. Instead of showing the entire transactions, they are now half covered because the left hand side of the print page is covered by the bank's menu which always shows at the side of the webpage. I contacted the bank who said they'd had other firefox users complaining about this. They said that it's firefox's fault and follows an update which was done. Please can you help? I have attached a snipping tool image of the problem.

Is it possible to set a default container to open new tabs per window?

The use case I'm trying to support looks like: 1. Open a Firefox window for personal use 2. Open a Firefox window for work use 3. Press ctrl+t in the work window Expectation: Firefox opens new tab in the "work" container by default

I'm trying to replicate the experience of Chrome profiles, where an entire browser window is dedicated to one profile.

Using `privacy.userContext`, with or without the Multi-Account Containers extension, is there any about:config setting or an extension setting that enables setting a default container for a window in this way?

Greetings!

I would like to be able to open selected links via the search tool with CTRL + Enter, like it is possible on most browsers. Basically, I do CTRL + F, select a text which brings me to a link I was looking for, and do instantly CTRL + Enter to open this link. Currently, this shortcut only toggles the ability to see all matched texts and doesn't open the link.

Do you know if it's possible? Thank you!
