I noticed when I try to click on a link to print something the printing dialogue will be kind of out of focus (hidden) so I can't do anything but press ESC to get out of it. When I scale the Firefox window to a smaller size it works as intended. On my 2560x1440 screen it works in all window sizes. Only on my 3840x2160 screen this happens when the window is maximized. Would be nice if somebody could fix this! Thank you! Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) Win 10.

Hi, I've recently learned, like others, that the Firefox browser no longer supports plain http requests and automatically diverts to https. I develop websites and have in the past used Apache Virtual Hosts. I want to be able to achieve the same thing, specifically, I want to use the domain name the site will eventually be hosted on, but point to a local directory: localhost/mywebsite newWebsite.com

I'm getting the impression that I will now have to create SSL Certificates for each local site now, so that I can use the https (port 443) protocol. Am I right to assume this, or am I missing something that will make my life easier? I have looked online, but can't find much in the way of answers.

Thanks for reading.

The following is a screenshot of my Firefox browser. Included is a BULLSHIT "Other Bookmarks" tab that has displaced existing custom bookmarks. This is >NOT< helpful. I want this crap gone, and control of my toolbar returned to ME. How do I remove this tab from the toolbar? And don't tell me it's an upgrade to the browsing experience. If I wanted to group items with a shortcut on the toolbar I would have done so. Note that I already have two groups on the toolbar. I know what I'm about. Give my back my toolbar with the custom bookmarks that >I< require.

I used to have Roomy Bookmark App instaled and Im still missing it :( Is there a way to reduce bookmark size to favicons and see the name of it when I hover over it? And not having to fix it after each update? I love Firefox but this one thing is really to improve because I have so many bookmarks its hard to expand the list of it everytime.

Clicking 'Other Bookmarks' on the right side of the bookmarks bar cause firefox to stuck for few seconds .No problem with getting to the 'Other Bookmarks' from the 'Show sidebars' . Right click on 'Other Bookmarks' gives inactive 'Cat' and 'Delete' options. How to solve that uncomfortable placing of the 'Other Bookmarks' so the place of the 'show more bookmarks' 2 arrows mark will get back to the right side on the browser ? Thanks in advance

I have never and will never use Facebook but I keep getting these annoying little square pop ups with the Facebook icon in them regardless. I have read the fixes on the web for this but they all assume you are using Facebook which I am not. So is there any way to stop this happening? It is incredibly annoying especially as I detest Facebook and all the problems it is causing in society.

Hi,

I have installed Firefox on my second machine at work, and I find it impossible to use it as it does not connect to many of my company's services, but also on many mainstream sites.

For example, when I try to load sites like theguardian.com I get a window with the warning: "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue", for others like nytimes.com the message reads "Warning:Potential Security Risk Ahead". The lists of sites where these happens is long.

The thing is that on my other machine at work these sites are working perfectly. I have just loaded Firefox on the new machine, I have not added any extensions or plugins yet.

I am about to loose the old work PC, and it would be a shame if on my new machine I had to use Chrome!

Any help is appreciated Thanks Alex

PS I am writing this from my own laptop and not from the work PC

I have been experiencing lately quite few Firefox crashes that bring down the entire (desktop) Windows OS in a brutal manner: complete system lockup, instant reboots (no blue screen).

These seem related to the audio and video interactions with the host system - streaming musinc online (siriusxm.com) or engaging in graphic intensive activities. This supposition propmpt me to perform few hardware tests - memory, GPU, audio card,etc. Everything checks out fine with the basic test and diagnostic tools I've used.

The worse system crashes have happened while on the https://buckhill.com/tubing-2/snow-tubing/ wesbite trying to purchase passes. Along the way for signing the waiver, the site brings up a graphical pad for capturing the guest's signature using the mouse. Several attempts have ended with horrendous system crashes (I had to locate the hardware reset button on my system, which took a while), never in the same spot in the process. Similar issues have happened on my wife's laptop (Windows 10 OS) while using Firefox on this site. I had to use a different browser to complete this purchase, for both my kids sanity and my system health. (for whomever is interested in troubleshooting this site, just follow the prompts and add guests - the purchase step is the very last one).

I should mention that Firefox' own crash page (about:crashes) shows no sign of any crashes. Other times, the Firefox window just dissappears without any warning, and no traces of crash information in Firefox nor OS event system. My system is configured to save a memory minidump in the event of crashes - there were none.

In this context, I could be wrong, but narrowed the culprit down to Firefox itself. In my opinion, whatever Firefox is doing to bypass OS basic protection mechanisms (and let's be honest - on Windows these can be better) and cause such hard failures are a dangerous vulnerability that should be investigated.

Any ideas and suggestions on diagnosing this or what to capture for aiding with troubleshooting, are appreciated.

Hi there,

I'm building my first website. When I log in (jam-works.org/wp-admin) the very right end of the top bar in the 'dashboard' menu shows a blank, empty box where my avatar or pic or Gravatar or whatever should be ("1of2" below). The profile section from which to change this displays that same blank square with a link: "You can change your profile picture on Gravatar".

Which I've done. When I open jam-works.org/wp-admin with another browser, it displays the picture ("2of2" below), but I really don't want to use other browsers. I tried Firefox 'Options', 'Privacy & Security' and 'clear data', rebooted but no luck.

Can someone please help? I'm older than technology, so please type slowly so I can understand. Seriously. I just found out that an "Ethernet" isn't a thing to catch the Ether Bunny with, sooooo, yeah - please kinda spell it out for me if you can.

Thanks!
