For years I have been using Firefox. If I clicked on a hyperlink in any of my programs, Outlook messages, websites etc, Firefox opened a new tab. That behaviour has suddenly stopped for websites including this one occasionally. It seems to still work for Outlook. Has Firefox changed its policy?

The advice on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295 is to edit browser.link.open_newwindow (3) 1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab; But that is already set to 3.

What other settings might work? And why has this been changed?

I need to use Google Meet for a professional purpose. When I use is from the Chrome browser, I can present a specific tab on my desktop; however, I prefer to use Firefox as my default Browser. The problem is, when I use Meet on Firefox, the presentation options don't include sharing a tab. Is there a way to fix this, or do I just need to use Chrome when meeting?

Thank you.

When I attempt to open Email after opening wowway.net in Firefox, a new window opens at "http://wowway.net/files/wow/login.php?bounceto=http%3A%2F%2Fwowway.net%2Fzmail%2F%3Fautologin%3Dtrue" and the screen only contains this message: "Please wait while we are logging you in." It never logs in. Wowway.net says the problem is with Firefox and instructed me to use Microsoft Edge to connect to wowway.net and that does work OK. When I click Email from wowway.net in Microsoft Edge, it correctly connects me to "https://email.wowway.com/modern/" from which I can access all my email.

PLEASE HELP! I want to access my email with wowway.net through Firefox as I have for years.

Thank you, Kent Holcomb kentmh@wowway.com

This latest update has broken so many websites for me. I can't see areas of most of the websites I visit, getting a "You are not connected securely to this site" notice even though there's a certificate when I check and it's always for a different reason. One unsecure image or one unsecure content warning or something along those lines and it's driving me nuts! I can't use a private window because I can't sign into any sites with the private window. All I get is the spinning, working on it thingy.

There was a place where I could whitelist sites to override this problem but now I can't find it and if I can't do something about this, will have to use a different browser, which I don't want to do. Can someone give me an idea here on what to do to bypass this? I've trusted these sites for years. They didn't just all go rogue the minute this update came through!

I'm on Windows 10

Pressing "Ctrl+Z" in the search box no longer has all the previous searches. Sometimes if I recently used the search box and haven't navigated away from the page I was on it will remember my past few searches but if I go to do other things and then go back to the box, pressing 'Ctrl+Z' does nothing. The use of a separate search box that remembers your recent searches is a primary reason I use Firefox over other browsers. Yet this functionality seems to be broken. I am surprised that it has not gotten more outcry from other people who use the search box! If there is some setting I need to change, let me know, but I don't know why that specific feature would have changed all of a sudden so that it only works every once in a while.

I have used wowway.net for my email service on Firefox for years. Recently I have become unable to login to my email account using wowway.net. When I click the "Email" button on the wowway.net homepage (https://wowway.net/?inc=27) from within Firefox, a new page opens entitled "Redirecting to Login" with the message "Please wait while we are logging you in." This page stays open indefinitely without connecting to "https://email.wowway.com/modern." The wowway technical support have been unable to help me solve the problem and suggested I use Microsoft Edge instead of Firefox. Microsoft Edge does work, but I much prefer to stay with Firefox if possible.

Can you help me?

I have had it with Firefox playing cop. I really have. I have a site that I visit frequently but these past two updates have now broken my ability to sign into the site at all, even in private mode. All I get is the shield and human icons with the strike-through and the error message on the user name/password field that says: This Connection Is Not Secure. Logins Entered Here Could Be Compromised. Learn More.

I've hit the escape button, tried private windows, done everything I can including resetting which was my last resort and which I hate doing, there's no more whitelist, no way to bypass anything, this is totally unacceptable that I cannot get past this. Firefox is becoming more useless to me as they try to become more and more in control of what I can and cannot do. If there is no override to this, then I have to find a different browser because it's pretty useless to use one browser for some sites and another for other sites, don't you think? So if someone has a workaround for this problem, can you please tell me what it is?

I like to mute all of my tabs so they don't play annoying sounds. However a very annoying mute icon appears when I hover over it and the "muted" text is shown under the name. I tried adding to my userChrome.css:

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); .tab-icon-overlay[muted], .tab-icon-sound[muted] {

 display: none !important;

}

This only removes the muted icon, and when I hover over a tab its favicon disappears. I also tried changing browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon as suggested in [answer] but it isn't an option anymore.

How do I remove it completely without changing the context menu item?

Good day,

Really happy to see that mozilla is tightening up security. But unfortunately, I can't enroll into Two-Step Authentication everytime I enter code it's not being accepted. I tried multiple android apps of those codes and non of them work for me.

Because of that, I lost access to addons.mozilla.com account, because system doesn't let me in without 2step auth enabled.

Any chance I can use yubikey's intead of those auth apps? or anything else I can do?

I have set Firefox Developer Edition (Windows 10 20H2 & 21H2 and Ubuntu 18.04 & 20.04 installations, always kept up to date), to use English (United Kingdom) settings in preferences. I have installed the UK Dictionary and made it the default for spellchecking. The Windows installation is also supposed to be respecting the OS regional settings. Firefox seems to be totally disregarding the settings and always giving me US as the location and US English for the spellcheck. This has been an issue for months if not years. I understand that many pages will be US biased, that is not a problem. The problems are that my country preference is being detected as US, and that I can not seem to get Firefox to actually use the UK Dictionary. I can supply additional information as required

Hi,

Back in the old days of classic extensions, they had access to FF's GUI elements, provided such privileges were asked in a manifest file.

For example, there were extensions that added tab's title to the URL bar. And I want to do exactly that nowadays, too.

WebExtensions can not do that but this should work with userChrome.js, right?

If so, maybe someone has already done it and I simply could not find it. Does anybody know?

If not, then how do I access the URL bar object to add text (e.g. page's title) to it or something else?

Thanks in advance.

I have an existing collection of extensions on AMO, I can add and remove extensions from it and add my notes to the extensions, but if I try and edit the collection info (name, description and custom URL), it incorrectly errors, claiming I have invalid characters in the custom url. Even if I don't actually change anything when I hit "Edit", I can't save, I have to cancel out.

I don't really care too much but probably someone should take a look at some point.

There isn't a forum for the website specifically, so posting under FF desktop as that is browser I was using when this occurred (FF Win10 x86-64, Dev edition)
