I cannot access my Mail.com email accounts. When I go to the login website:

 https://www.mail.com/logout/ or https://www.mail.com

Then I click the "Log In" icon, and the login page fails to load completely. There is no Username or Password entry boxes.

After clicking Log In, the URL changes to this:

  https://www.mail.com/#.23140-header-navlogin2-1

I cleared cookies and cache but the issue remains.

I am able to use and signin using Google Chrome. So the problem is somewhere withing Firefox.

This is important as my business email address is on Mail.com !!!!!

All of a sudden when I press F6, it starts a Google search (see image) instead of just focusing the address bar. This is rather annoying because I use F6 all the time to go to a different page (e.g. type "mail" and then follow the autocomplete to mail.google.com) and that doesn't work if it wants search google for mail instead.

How do I revert this to its normal behaviour?

Try this test first. Go to About:Config, write TLS , change the setting to max (4) . Then attempt to download the firefox installer. The website won't load, as the webmasters did not enable TLS 1.3 , which in 2023 is kind of a shame. The browser cannot update itself either automatically if only TLS 1.3 is allowed, and TLS1.2 is disabled.

The can be an easy fix. I wonder why Mozilla did not solve this already years back. I also wonder why fans, and security researchers did not scream about it in the past..

For the download.mozilla.org the cipher suite Key Exchange is P256, while the Signature is RSA-PKCS1-SHA512, for Transport Layer Security 1.2

I'm sure Mozilla can do better then this, so kindly review these items, and update your website with stronger / modern encryption standards. Decommission the legacy ones please. While you are at it, please also enable HSTS. ;) Cheers!

I am experimenting with changing from Microsoft Edge to Firefox. However, a couple of bookmarks that have favicons in Microsoft Edge do not appear to work in Firefox. Attached is a .gif showing me trying to add https://app.powerbi.com to the bookmark bar. You can see that there is an icon on the tab, along with an icon that appears when trying to drag to the bookmark bar. However, when it gets to the bookmark bar, it goes back to the default icon and does not show the actual favicon. The same thing happens when trying to add https://vscode.dev. However, both of those sites have favicon images in the bookmark bar on Microsoft Edge.

Any ideas on how to get the favicon to appear would be greatly appreciated. I understand that it may seem a pretty trivial thing, but I do a lot of screen recordings for my work, and want all of the icons on the bar to appear.

Hi there,

I have a laptop running Windows 10, plus the latest version of Firefox. The laptop has a built-in webcam. I have also connected an external webcam via USB. This second camera is better quality and preferred, I visit a web site. When I first activate the camera, I am presented with a dropdown of available cameras. The USB camera appears in the list. All is fine. I instruct Firefox to "allow" this camera to be used. (first image) However, after a short time, less than a second, the same dialog is shown again, this time without the USB camera. (second image) There have been no actual hardware changes. I can then click "allow" again and the *integrated* camera works, i.e. not the desired camera. So, two questions, really. First, what just happened? Did Firefox try to control the USB camera, find that it couldn't, and redisplay the dialog showing only the "controllable" option? Second, my desired endpoint here is for the web site to use the USB camera. How do I achieve this? I can easily do this with Chrome but I like Firefox. TIA.

Hello,

A few weeks ago something changed in my Firefox browser where popup boxes do not show. For example, if I want to download a file, the pop-up box with the options for downloading do not show. If I want to attach or upload a file, the popup does not show. Even if I want to change a setting in my my Firefox account, I cannot if it requires a popup box.

If I restart my computer (not the browser), the problem goes away, but eventually it happens again.

It is really disruptive. Now I have to do about 60% of my work in another browser. All of my account info, bookmarks, and passwords are saved with my Firefox account, so I would prefer to be able to use Firefox. Any suggestions on how to fix? I should also not--this has persisted despite updating.

Allows me to login and presents data fine. Go to "cash in" rewards and there is a box to check on last step to certify you agree to terms and conditions. Have had no problem doing so for 2 yrs + or -.......wont allow box to be checked now. Citizens help line was unaware of any problems and suggested I try another browser. Sure enough I down loaded chrome and all was well. Thanks for what you all do with and for FF. BTW I'm on 109.0 at this writing and there are other "buttons" that don't work either on same site like return home but those are not showstoppers. My rewards cash is !!

Dear Sir/Madam,

Since a few days ago I can no longer log in to my mail account using Firefox version 109.0.

It works perfect if I use Microsoft Edge but Firefox is my favourite.

The mail account I refer is: https://www.mail.com/ When I open mail.com the page opens normally but there is no login-boxes for user and password. Is this something Firex can fix? Or is it me who don't understand how it works?

Best regards Jan Danielsson

Current situation: I have 2 monitors. I have the option of auto hide taskbar in desktop mode turned on. On the primary monitor, when I maximise firefox window( not full screen, the button between close and minimise, looking like a square), and hover my cursor towards the bottom, my taskbar doesn't unhide. However when I unminimise( clicking the middle button on the top right again), the taskbar unhides correctly. Also to note, my secondary monitor works completely fine ie, when firefox is maximised I can unhide taskbar on hovering near the bottom.

Make Firefox crash instead of freezing Linux when out of memory

Internet websites can be rather heavy these days (like mega.nz or reddit, especially with multiple tabs), and they often take all memory (I think this is about RAM, of which my Macbook Air has only 4 GB, while running Kubuntu 22.10). Firefox very often freezes because of this, and my Linux system gets frozen too, completely unresponsive, with reboot as the only solution...

The problem that I want to solve is not the freezing as such, because that is not Firefox' fault, but that of the websites vs my RAM.

But I have noticed that while Firefox freezes along with the system, Opera, for example, when stumbling into the same problem, simply crashes, and the operating system is not affected.

Is there some setting/tweak in Firefox that makes it keep trying to run when out of memory and thus freeze the system instead of just close, like Opera does?
