My Firefox (Windows 10) updated to 105.0 this morning. I have https://www.google.co.uk/ as my homepage and Firefox always used to focus on the Google webpage search bar on startup.

Now it focuses on the address bar instead (i.e. https://www.google.co.uk/ is selected). How can I make it focus on the webpage search bar on startup again instead?

I already found this thread from last year https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334131 and tried changing browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false but it didn't have any noticeable effect and the issue is still present.

Many thanks.

I am running Firefox 100.0.2 64 bit and now after literally years of visiting https://www.metrobyt-mobile.com/ to pay my mobile bill every month, it won't open the page. [See image of error]. I have gone into settings | browser privacy and tried turning off blocking for cookies, tracking content, cryptominers, and fingerprinters. No difference. I have gone into Enhanced Tracking Protection and clicked on Manage Exceptions and it won't give me an option to add the website. The site opens normally in Chrome. I find the instructions for "What to do if a site seems broken", but there is no shield or broken shield next to the web site address to click on. [See second image].

Since Firefox upgraded to 105.0 in the past day, every time I open it, my malware detection software gives me a notice that it has blocked malware. Here is a printout from the software:


Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com

-Log Details- Protection Event Date: 9/21/22 Protection Event Time: 9:36 AM Log File: c45b2d49-39ba-11ed-95d2-7824af3be113.json

-Software Information- Version: 4.5.14.210 Components Version: 1.0.1751 Update Package Version: 1.0.60359 License: Premium

-System Information- OS: Windows 10 (Build 19044.2006) CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: System

-Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1, C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe, Blocked, -1, -1, 0.0.0, ,

-Website Data- Category: Malware Domain: pki-goog.l.google.com IP Address: 142.250.191.131 Port: 80 Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe (end)


So it appears that Firefox (and perhaps google) is showing up as a malicious website. Any idea why this is occurring? FWIW, my start page is startpage.com. The alert also appears even when I search using DuckDuckGo, and also when I go back to home page.

Any suggestions?

Latest Firefox update 104.0 started displaying "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised" again after previously being disabled. It's an annoying message that pops up on my intranet logins and I want it disabled again. I did the usual in about:config and set security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled to False and security.insecure_password.ui.enabled to False like previously, but the message is still there. It seems that latest update is forcing this message and ignoring the settings to disable them. Please help!

Is there any way to open the about:config page to a specific setting? I frequently toggle a particular setting on and off and would like a quick way to bookmark it for easy access.

I'm thinking something along the lines of: about:config?setting=media.peerconnection.enabled

Even better would be to allow a new value to be passed in as well: about:config?setting=media.peerconnection.enabled&value=true

I cannot log into att.com from firefox, yet can through google chrome. This is a fairly new problem over the last month or so.

When logging into their site, website keeps bouncing back and forth between the att.com logo, to a blank white screen, that says "redirecting". It never allows me into the website.

Please help, or fix this issue on your end.

many thanks,

I need help. I took the PC in to have a virus removed and the store removed AVG Anti-Virus and installed McAfee. When I got the PC home and connected, all the Firefox settings had been changed and the AdBlocker and Greasemonkey extensions were missing. I now get a message in settings claiming my browser is being managed by my organization, only I don't have an organization. This is my own computer and no one else uses it or has access to it. I reinstalled the AdBlocker and Greasemonkey, but now cannot get Greasemonkey scripts to download. I keep getting an error message. I've had both McAfee and Staples remote support looking at the problem, to no avail.

I never saw a prompt or anything but when I tried to open Firefox this morning it updated to 104.0.2 64 bit and did a complete reset. Lost plugins, extensions, and all settings. (I do have my bookmarks, and I never use Firefox for passwords.)

I have a backup program, so I might be able to restore if I knew what files.

Help would be appreciated.

Hi

I exported all my firefox passwords to a csv with the option in about:logins.

Now i wanted to reimport them and set signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled = true, restarted firefox, opened about:logins, menu option import from csv is present, selected the exported csv and nothing happens.

There is no error massage. A you seriously telling me that since lockwise has been abandoned about 2 years ago that there is an option to export the csv but NO freaking possibility to import it?

How for god sake should i get my >500 Passwords back into firefox?

Chrome does import the csv exported by without a hassle by the way.

When I attempt to go to the OneDrive browser site using firefox it fails to load. It isn't infinite loading, nor is it displaying an error. It just finishes loading but shows nothing but a white page. This issue is only on Firefox as attempting to go to the OneDrive browser site on Microsoft edge works just fine. It's also only an issue with the main onedrive site and the folder browsing pages. Going directly to a file loads the page just fine.
