There’s right-click + “Forget about this site”, but that deletes the information for the entire second-level domain (say example.org).

When in the process of moving things from *.example.org to *.example.com peu à peu, then I need to be able to individually forget say chat.example.org because it’s already moved to chat.example.com but retain all information for other *.example.org hosts.

I have the same problem as described here [1]: when I open a markdown file in Firefox it uses itself as handler opening it in a new tab, which in turn opens it in a new tab, ... The solution suggested under [1] is how to make Firefox usable again, stopping it from open this particular markdown file. But it doesn't solve the actual problem: either Firefox is capable of rendering markdown in which case it should do it; or it's not in which case it shouldn't try. Does anyone have a thought on that?

Hi,

just for understanding:

Why can the Firefox source code (view-source) of a website be nearly three times the size compared with Chrome/Opera or when I save the Firefox source code marked and copied and then pasted and saved via an editor?

Example: Firefox 546,6 KiB Chrome/Opera 204,3 KiB via Editor 204,3 KiB (marked and copied Firefox source code)

Best

Using FF 115.12.0esr from openSuse 15.5. Get responses from various web sites that the browser needs an update, that it is no longer supported, etc. Some sites block me out. Another site just now reported the version of my FF is 102--so no wonder it has problems. How can I change the version number that web sites see to reflect the actual update level?

Firefox has long been my browser of choice on all platforms. I am switching from Windows to Linux and have recently found problems playing some videos on the Linux version of Foxfire. I don’t know if it’s a matter of having the right codec or something else. The videos play with Chromium on Linux and with Firefox on my Android smartphone. My Linux laptop is running version 128.0 of Firefox for Ubuntu version 24.0.0. Here are two offending links. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkZuGil6U4w https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxVcDPtDnjM

Occasionally, and typically only after a reboot, Firefox starts consuming a significant amount of CPU time. This typically goes on for several minutes, and if I close and reopen Firefox, the process begins again. It's enough CPU that the fans kick on high through most of the process, and considering I'm only opening the browser (not even switching tabs to actively load any other pages), I don't know why it would do this. Similarly, if it were related to typical startup behavior, why doesn't it do this every time?

While I generally trust that this is intentional and is unlikely the result of malware, I'd still like to know why Firefox does this at all and what it's doing. I'm not sure if I can collect any logs or get any other info about this. From process monitors, it appears to be the main executable that's consuming the additional CPU and not any of the isolated instances.

I collected the troubleshooting information, and saved it, but I am hesitant to share without knowing what type of information is contained (and I can see some sensitive stuff like file paths)

OS: Ubuntu 24.04 LTS (Linux 6.8.0-36-generic) Firefox Version: 127.0.2 (deb) Build ID: 20240624183754

Hi,

I am working on a website- one page uses websockets for data sync, activated with a button - and the socket takes a long time to actually connect (to locahost). During that time, an error pops into console- several of the same:

The connection to [url] was interrupted while the page was loading.

I found several bug reports in various places - most say to close the socket on page unload. I already have that implemented, and checking network dev tab shows all sockets are closed when the errors occur, and they also appear when tested in a whole new window. Also tested on chromium- no issues there.

Any help?

Hi

When a site sends a Web Push Notification to my browser, it flashes up at the top of the screen for 2 or 3 seconds and then is gone. Sometimes I'm busy with something else and once I see it, it's gone, or I just catch the first word or two.

How can I display the Web Push Notification again?

I'm running Firefox on Fedora Linux, if that matters.

Thanks!

Why I can't login to outlook.office.com (Microsoft 365) with passkeys when I use Firefox (newest 128) in Linux? It doesn't offer me to use passkeys to login when I go there.

I can login with passkeys in Firefox when I use Windows 11 or Google Chrome in Linux.

This is super frustrating. How to use Firefox for development purposes? There should be an option to add exceptions. I even went to settings and added an exception manually to no avail.

I'm going often through pain to use firefox for everything but then there must be a reasonable way to achieve the goals.

Please tell me there is a way to workaround this easily without compromising security of other sites that are being visited.

P.S. I can open same site with adding an exception on chrome.

The system continues to tell me that my original email address is the primary address. That address has been hacked and I need to remove it and replace it. I am then told I need to add a secondary address before I can change. I go into the area where this is done and when I press add it says that the new address is already there. How do I get rid of the hacked address and replace it with the new one (which Mozilla does actually recognize!)?

I'm talking about how when you go to fill out a text input, it'll suggest that input next time you go to a similar field. Well, that system just saved my social security number as an input after I filled out a government form. I would like to turn this feature off now, and delete the history of it if I can. Is there a way I can do that?

I'd attach an example image of a different website, but the box goes away when trying to take a screenshot.
