My FF updated to 110.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu and several things which use to work really well are now broken.

For example, when making a new account, the password manager pops up asking if you want to save the username/password, but if you mouse over to that popup then as soon as you enter it it just disappears. When logging in somewhere, if there are multiple choices for userid (say with different dates) none can be chosen. You mouse down to the popup with the choices and there's a weird stroboscopic action where the popup disappears and is recreated as fast as it can, over and over, and nothing can actually be clicked on. If you type in the userid then try to enter the password the same thing happens. It's not possible to use the password manager anymore, both fields need to be typed in manually.

Another example is the search field. If you type something and there are several options from previous searches, and you try to mouse down to pick one, the popup disappears. If you click the search keyword again it highlights as for replacement, then you have to click it again (removing highlight) and only then can you mouse down and choose a search engine.

etc etc etc! All this stuff worked great until the upgrade happened (in the background) and now many things are a huge pain in the ass. Arrgh!

I tried disabling all add-ons then restarted but made no difference. Password manager is unusable.

How do I prevent firefox from redirecting to HTTPS when it can't find the HTTP website I typed into the address bar?

Background (please read) I run a website for my team at work off my local machine. It's just http, because it's local, and I don't need any fancy encryption schemes. I have no domain for it ... me and my users just type the local IP of my machine. Like this: http://10.111.111.11/myapp/login.php

To work from home, I set up a VPN tunnel thru my workplace firewall so I can hit the webserver on my local machine. If I forget to start the VPN tunnel on my remote machine and then try going to my website, I get an error message in firefox:

   Unable to connect
   An error occurred during a connection to 10.111.111.11.
   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.


After receiving this message, Firefox changes the address in the address bar from what I typed to the same thing, only with "https" instead of "http". This drives me insane. How do I force Firefox to preserve what I typed in the address bar EXACTLY as I typed it?

Firefox 111.0.1 (64-bit) Latest update seems to have altered the way the toolbar book marks work. The bookmarks do not display, even though there is a line reserved for them at the top of the window.

I'm becoming less and less likely to customise how firefox works from the default setting, because over time I cannot be certain that these customisations will disappear or become non functional.

I found that when starting Firefox on my school's WiFi, it starts up very slowly. Using `strace`, I found that it was taking it's sweet time making a DNS request to try to resolve my computer's `/etc/hostname`. After searching the Firefox source code with https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/, I found that the only occurrence of `/etc/hostname` was in [SandboxTestingChildTests.h](https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/security/sandbox/common/test/SandboxTestingChildTests.h). So I was wondering if it's possible to disable these tests when Firefox starts up.

Not sure if this is something everyone experiences but every time Firefox updates on my computer, the password manager goes back to default settings and starts prompting to save passwords again. I have disabled the darn thing countless times, but it always comes back alive after the browser restarts after an update. Why does this setting does not persists after an update and stays disabled?

Can't import bookmarks from saved .html file?

Hi Forum Folke,

This switch from Windows to Linux has been mostly disastrous, with my exported Tbird profile zipfile turning out to be corrupt and not openable, and now I can't import my saved bookmarks file either. I can open it and read the list, I can even open it in Firefox and click on any link in there and it opens in Firefox, but they simply will NOT import.

If I understand the process correctly, go to bookmarks > manage bookmarks > Import and Backup, "Import bookmarks from html..." If I click on this, it opens the file manager, and I navigate to my backup drive and click on the "bookmarks_3_24_23.html" file, then click on "open." This *should* start the import process, and then they should show up in my bookmarks, no? What it does is exactly nothing at all. The window freezes for a moment (unresponsive to any clicks), then does respond to clicks, but there are no imported bookmarks anywhere.

If I enable the bookmarks toolbar, the first button is "Import bookmarks," and if I click on that, it just tells me "No programs that contain bookmarks, history, .... can be found."

I tried dragging and dropping the file into a new tab, and it added "bookmarks_3_24_23..." to the bookmarks toolbar. I can click on it and the list opens in the tab, and I can scroll down and find and open links... but that's obtuse and awkward. I'd much rather have Firefox import the bookmarks and display them normally.

What am I missing here? I've done this before without any issues, doing exactly the same things, but this time it's a no-go. I'm starting to wonder if I've just got a buggy install of Linux ( Linux Mint 20.1 Ulyssa with the Cinnamon 4.8.6 desktop.)

Just went to get the current version of Firefox, and noticed that it's saying: "Updates disabled by your system administrator." Think this would apply to importing bookmarks as well?? Anyway, the version is "Firefox for Linux Mint mint-001 - 1.0" up at the top of the "about" window, and below that is "111.0 (64-bit)."

Any ideas are very much appreciated!

So I have this extremely annoying issue. Almost every time I open Firefox on my system, all of my add-ons get disabled. There is no pattern to when it will happen either. Sometimes I can open it 2 or three time without a problem, other times its every single time, and to top it off all of my saved logins randomly disappear too, as well as some of the settings (namely search bar settings). A simple closing and reopening of Firefox restores the login info, but not the settings. I’ve tried making a new profile, didn’t work. Tired uninstalling Firefox and starting clean, still didn’t work. I’ve checked all my settings, and tried deleting the extensions data in the Mozilla folder. Nothing seams to work, and I don’t have a clue why this keeps happening. I’ve been using Firefox since it was still in beta, and have never had this kind of problem before. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

In Settings → Privacy & Security → History → Settings..., I have enabled the automatic clearing of "Site settings" when Firefox closes. However, the clearing of all site settings causes the clearing of all my HTTPS certificate error exceptions (Settings → Privacy & Security → Certificates → View Certificates... → Servers). Is there a way to make some exceptions for the clearing of site settings? I would like the site settings of a few websites to be preserved, while deleting the site settings of all other sites.

When I put something in the search box it comes back with a Google Search 'hit' page and it always has enormous text, an enormous font. I can't get rid of it. It started after one day I couldn't read a tiny text on a page so i googled for help and got some keystrokes for increasing font size. i forget what they were but they worked fine. But now I can't get rid of it. On all other pages, yes, no problem. I found keypresses that are supposed to get rid of large font: ctrl-z, ctrl-y, different ones different places say, I"ve tried them all, but can't get rid of the big font on the first page of a google hit. I am using firefox of course. On a linux mint machine.

Hello,

For some reason I got a new laptop and install the latest firefox version, however, very often happens that my pointer doesn't change according to the options I am selecting (unless I click on them). To fix it, I have to restart the browser every time. It's annoying because for example, if I select some text to copy it, it will not be highlighted until I finish (unclick), just until then it will highlight the text, but not during the process. Also, the wheel of my mouse won't scroll the page up and down when clicking at it (but I still can scroll without clicking it). All these issues get fixed once I restart the whole browser.

Any ideas? do you think by downgrading firefox this could be fixed?

Best regards, Cristhian Garcia.
