Hello. I just wonder why firefox connects to bookmarks url's right after you open firefox? Opening page is always set to:about:blank. I discovered this when I want to know some netwrok traffic from my laptop and I wanted to know which software causes that traffic. And then I noticed that only open firefox it takes connection to bookmarks url even it does not open any web pages - because the opening page is about:blank

Any method I open a new tab, it always takes up to 7s to load, while completely suspending my browser. This also happens in troubleshoot mode but not in incognito. Directly opening websites in a new tab doesn't trigger that bug. I don't recall when this started to happen, it might be after some new Windows update.

I have included screenshots from Firefox Profiler, both from regular window and incognito one.

Hello, I'm currently running firefox developer edition and i'm facing a weird bug: When firefox is started, opening a web url from outside of firefox window does'nt work and display error message: "Firefox is already running but is not responding...". It expects that i close all instance of firefox instead of just opening url in a new tab.

Do you have any idea?

I'm working on version 105.0b2 with two profiles on an ubuntu 22

Hello. I use developer's version of ff for a few weeks (currently on 107.0b2). I recently decided to switch back to stable version 106. However, when I run it it says

``` Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox. ```

So, how do I move from developer's version back to stable without losing anything?

(OS: debian 11, if it matters)

Hello.

It seems I get a problem or two almost always with a new update lately. I have been using an userChrome.css to reduce the width of sidebar but the latest version 107.0 now ignores it and have a wide width even at the narrowest. Mine currently is set as, "#sidebar {min-width:30px !important; max-width:none !important;}" This no longer works. Your support much appreciated.

Regards,

Recently, I've started noticing these quick action tiles in the URL drop-down menu (I've attached a screenshot). There's a help icon to their right, but it just goes to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/quick-actions-firefox-search-bar?as=u&utm_source=inproduct which is a 404. I found this bugzilla bug, but I'm not 100% sure on how the versioning works (even after consulting Wikipedia). The bugzilla entry mentions it's fixed on 105.0a1. I'm using 105.0b6 of the Developer Edition.

Firefox beta release: 116.0b6 (64-bit)

On sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com I am not getting the normal cookie consent pop-up option which used to automatically show on opening the sites. Other sites are still showing the cookie consent option pop-ups. This means I cannot select if I wish to accept or reject cookies on several sites that used to allow me the option.

In checking about:config, the cookiebanners.service.mode is set to 1, which I believe this the correct setting for enabling the cookies consent pop-up option.

Is there any fix for the cookie consent pop-up not working on certain sites within the EU? I am not using a VPN or pop-up blocker. Tracking protection is set to Standard, cookies and site data are always deleted on closing Firefox and "Do Not Track” signal is set to always. Deleting all installed FF extensions has no effect either.

In other browsers on the same PC, Chrome and Edge, the cookie consent option does still work as it should on the sites mentioned. In Firefox it doesn't.

This is only happening on one PC. My latop has the same FF beta build installed and is not showing this behaviour, it still automatically shows the cookie consent pop-ups when visiting sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com.

I am on Firefox Developer Edition 120.0b9 (64-bit macOS). Using sites like whatismyip and whatismyipaddress, I am seeing that I have a VPN or Proxy enabled. When I use Chrome, I don't see this. I went through all the settings and turned off anything that could even remotely be related, and still get the same results. Does Firefox have a built in VPN that I am unaware of? Is there a way to turn it off?
