I tried to create a saved password for a site I need to log in to. The Create New Login form says "Make sure this matches the exact address of the website where you log in." I enter the exact address, username, and password and save it. But what shows after it is saved is a truncated form of the address. It lopped off the specific account ID information for my login page. So when I try to go to that site, my login page can't be found. Why can't the full address be saved?

I am sending in a new laptop to HP(Windows 11) for service on the keyboard and want to physically remove the stored passwords setup and synced via my Firefox sign-in, but want to make sure they do not get removed or get unsynced to my account(so can still use on existing Firefox at home). I see where you may find the location of the directory which they are stored, so can you simply delete or clear that directory on the HP device before sending out for service? Will it re-sync when PC is back at home and not effect my other live devices I will be using?

I've been running into this issue for several months now on Windows 10, currently using Firefox 1070.01 but has been occurring long before that. Only happens on my home PC, using identical accounts on my work PC is unaffected.

When opening a new window of Firefox, the home page and anything clicked within 5-20 seconds of the new window will load normally. After this brief window, all other loading will fail for an indeterminate amount of time, the bars will show filing but will not progress past 80% often resulting in connection error screens. Functionality will sometimes return, but closing and reopening Firefox is always a faster solution.

On this same PC, Edge and Chrome never fail to load pages, even directly alongside a failing Firefox load. This occurs 100% of the time on any webpage.

The same behavior can be observed after clearing my cache, removing all extensions and running the browser in safe mode. It has even continued after a fresh re-install of windows as well, but only ever on this PC and while connected to the internet via Ethernet.

I've replaced the Ethernet cable several times as well as swapping my motherboard, had my ISP swap my router and change the cabling that attaches my router. The issue does not persist over WiFi, but using WiFi only or swapping to it when needed is not an acceptable solution.

My ISP has been out here to test my connection on multiple occasions, no other online connectivity is effected as online games, online chat applications, as well as upload, download and ping monitors all return a stable connection with no interruptions. Only Firefox fails to load.

Would love to work with someone to get this solved. This issue has almost driven me back to Chrome

I'm receiving an alert from Cortex XDR, that Firefox is attempting to connect to multiple unknown connections over a short period of time. I've had Cortex XDR installed for over a year with no similar alerts, so I think something has changed recently. The following command is what it's flagging:

"\"C:\\Program Files\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe\" -contentproc --channel=\"26172.1.1434727046\\628648578\" -parentBuildID 20221110173214 -prefsHandle 2492 -prefMapHandle 2488 -prefsLen 35134 -prefMapSize 246036 -win32kLockedDown -appDir \"C:\\Program Files\\Mozilla Firefox\\browser\" - {79f67c07-73ef-4100-9816-3ba50906aa4a} 26172 \"\\\\.\\pipe\\gecko-crash-server-pipe.26172\" 2500 184ffa35558 socket",

This alert has appeared several times over the past week, so it's not just a one-off. Any idea what this command is doing?

Thank you.

I would really appreciate if the Firefox Password Manager would time-out and ask me again the primary password every x minutes (lets say 10 minutes, better if configurable). I use Firefox in my home PC, I have two kids (11 and 13 years old) and they frequently use my Linux/Firefox session for their school necessities and leisure time. The problem is that often they end using my session and they have access to all my usn/pwd inside de Password Manger (Internet router configuration, Parental Control configuration, ecc.) My kids have their own Linux profiles and Chrome profiles for school but they usually get to use my own PC/web-browser sessions for practical reasons inside my family.

Thank you very much for your support. Hernan M. Vago

Who needs all that spacing?

I have this

 padding-block: 2px !important;

When I load Chargehub.com into Firefox I should be able to see icons for electric vehicle charging stations plus a menu for such things as plug filters.

However, although the chargehub site loads with a Google map (after selecting Map) I don't get the EV charging station icons or menu. I do get POI icons such as for airfields, cemeteries, parks, churches, etc only when fully zoomed in. The Google zoom symbols and street map view options are also available.

I have not experienced this issue on any other WEB site including Plugshare or Chargemap. Further, when I open Google maps in Firefox and do the search, "ev charging stations in ontario canada", i do see the icons for charging stations.

I am running Windows 7 with Firefox version 107.01 on a desktop computer. Adblock and uBlock origin are installed. However I have the same results when running Firefox in safemode.

I do understand that Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7. However, my son is also running Windows 7 on his desktop computer, yet chargehub opens properly on his computer when using Firefox as his browser.

I've tried searching the WEB for an answer but no success so far.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I restarted firefox today, and now I have the following behavior: I have a window with many tabs open, enough that I have the little '<' and '>' scroll buttons in the field. Whenever I move the mouse pointer into the tab area (including the scroll buttons, but not the '+' (new tab) button to the right), unless I am actively clicking, the tabs start scrolling rightward until only the rightmost set of tabs are visible. The window being viewed does not change. I can use the 'v' tab selector to the right, and it will select the chosen tab and make that visible in the window, and make the selected tab visible in the tab bar, but when I again move the pointer into the tab area, it starts scrolling to the right. Similarly, I can click on the '<' scroll left button, or double or triple click on it, and it will scroll the tabs leftward; but immediately after completing the action, the tabs will scroll rightward to the end again.

It seems my problem is the same one as in this thread but there was no solution given there (the problem persists after restarting Firefox in troubleshooting mode). I see the same behavior as that poster with the tooltips in the tab bar, but drop-down menus such as on this submission page seem to be working normally for me.

Every day, I get multiple bookmarks added to my list that I do not want. They include, among others, things like Get Involved (there are at least dozens of these), About Firefox (again, Dozens), Help and Tutorials (many added). They clog my bookmarks on all things that access Firefox (work computer, home computer, IPhone, IPad) and the only way is to go in an delete them. I don't want nor do I need multiple versions of any of these. For that matter, I don't want even one of each added to my bookmarks. I've looked for help but unless you are a tech expert it's almost impossible to understand how to do that. I just want it to stop or I want to know how to stop it in the simplest way possible.

Hi!

I have encountered this really annoying problem on my Firefox app. I give details below. I installed Mozilla Firefox on my freshly installed Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. I tried installing it from Snap Store. However, when I tried saving an image from the web (or, truthfully, any other file chosen by the "Save As..." selection), nothing happened, again and again. I tried many things, including following relevant guides from the internet, but nothing changed. The Firefox version is the 107.0.1 (64-bit), a Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002- 1.0. I, also, have to report some other things, as well. When tried installing the browser from the internet (I downloaded a compressed file, containing the executable), the same function seemed to work. I, now, use the executable to access Firefox. However, firstly, because other difficulties (not problems, but difficulties) arise and, secondly, because I'd really like ti use, mostly, snaps, I report this bug here requesting for help, as well.

Any helpful answer will be appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi All,

We recently upgraded to Firefox v107 and started seeing issue where the microphone is not accessible in the iframed page (on windows and mac os). The iframed page has microphone functionality to allow our users to record audio. Both the parent and iframe share the same domain. When i try to enable the microphone nothing happens. I don't see any error messages in console when i click Record button

Any info on what's causing this? It was working on version 106.

Thanks, David
