Hello,

I am a college professor at University of New Haven, which uses the Canvas online learning system. Within Canvas, we have access to the Kaltura media content system where we can create, upload, and share videos with our students through the Canvas application.

This has worked fine until recently. Now, whenever I try to access my Kaltura media through Canvas, I get the following error message:

"It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies." (see attached photo for reference)

I assume there was a routine Firefox update sometime recently that imposed stricter restriction on third-party cookies. But I have followed all the instructions here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-cookies-firefox-tracking-protection?redirectslug=disable-third-party-cookies&redirectlocale=en-US), and I am still unable to access Kaltura through Canvas (I get the same error message).

FYI - I am able to access Kaltura through Canvas on Chrome, so I know this is a Firefox-specific issue. But I hate Chrome and want to keep using Firefox!

Is this something you can help me with?

Let me know - thanks!

I am getting the "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue" error on websites that are clearly not security threats. Examples are twitch.tv, youtube.com, gmail.com and since I use duckduckgo, I cant even search something because it redirects me to the website duckduckgo.com/(whatever i searched), which also creates the error. I don't believe it is a network error because it allows me to visit all of these websites when I am using the chrome browser. Sometimes when I get the error, it has the yellow border around the screen so I can click on advanced options and click "go to the website anyways", and sometimes that option is not there. Also, the error will happen on and off for some websites. For example, yesterday I wasn't able to access gmail.com because the glitch was happening on it, but today I am able to visit the site just fine.

Please advise how to revert back to old display. It changed with latest update. I am in tears as simply cannot read this light text on black background. I am seeing blurry, squinting to try focus and getting headache. Spent over an hour trying to follow steps on internet to restore old settings. . Nothing worked. Colour panel in settings shows text selection as black, background as white. But that is not what it's doing. Desperate, else need to set up another default browser. Cannot work like this. Thanks in advance

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)

The last few versions have been behaving erratically for me. Firefox often freezes, during normal light browsing. In some cases, it has frozen my iMac to the point of having to shut down using the power button.

I know programs can get wonky, but affecting the whole computer is troublesome. I regularly delete my cache. I just restarted FF in Troubleshooting mode, after the latest update to 95.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Hope someone can help.

When I use full screen for some websites, it darkens after about 2 - 5 seconds and my cursor also becomes harder to move. This only started to happen recently.

It is not my computer settings, I've tested this in Safari and it works normally. This makes videos unwatchable. It is like a dark screen suddenly appears over the video and only comes off if i move the cursor. It happens with netflix and prime but not youtube, udemy.

Somehow Airbnb fails to load after numerous attempts. Clearing cache etc. doesn’t do the job. Shutting down the VPN doesn’t do the job either. The message I get from their website is (in Dutch) that’s something went wrong.

“Unfortunately your request couldn’t be executed due to a server error. Maybe maintenance is taking place currently on Airbnb or something is wrong with your connection. Refresh the page and try again.”

Anybody knows what to do please?

This issue has started to become a problem over the last couple of months. Several websites that I log into frequently are no longer working with Firefox, or are not fully working.

For example, I can't use Firefox for these websites at all. AA.com (gives me a screen that says it's down for maintenance) bankofamerica.com (it allows me to start the login process but when it attempts the 2FA it errors out. ATT.com (everything appears to work, except the chat feature. If I log into att using safari (for example) there is a chat box in the lower right corner. The chat box is not there when I use Firefox.

This is starting to become an issue (and is very annoying) to where I may have to change browsers either to Safari (eh) or Chrome (yuk).

Are some of my settings set wrong? Is there another fix? or......
