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.

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

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?

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.

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,

Hey guys.

I have this weird issue, and I was unable to find anything on it through Google.

When I start Firefox and then go to YouTube (either via bookmark or by typing the URL) I have an odd issue. The front page of YouTube works as it should. I click a video, and that also works as it should. However, when I try going backwards to the YouTube front page, an issue arises. It happens whether I use the mouse shortcut or the button in the browser.

Instead of going back to the front page, it just reopens the same tab I'm on. If I go back once more, it takes me to my browsers home page. I THINK this has something to do with the "mini player" on YouTube not working correctly, but that's just my theory. I haven't been able to fix it. This doesn't happen with Chromium. I also haven't seen the mini player at all for a long time. I'm unsure if that stopped showing up when this issue arose, since I've just accepted it for a long while. But it is very annoying.

I do use uBlock origin and SponsorBlock, but I've had these for ages, and as far as I remember the issue started before I installed these. Uninstalling them is not an option, they're just too good. These are the only extensions I have enabled apart from RIF, which shouldn't interfere with YouTube.

Has anyone else had the same issue, or can anyone suggest any way to fix this? This also doesn't happen every time, but it happens frequently.

Thanks for any replies.

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.

This is a recent change -- the desktop browser didn't do this until a few weeks ago. It now plays slideshows automatically. This feature is called Auto-Rotation, but it has nothing to do with rotating the display on a phone or tablet (although that feature has the same name). This feature automatically rotates among the slides in a slideshow. It's incredibly annoying, especially since I typically forget its on (or don't realize I'm looking at a slideshow) and it changes to the 2nd slide just as I have begun reading the 1st. I then have to turn Auto-Rotation off and go back to the 1st slide to continue. When I remember, I have to hurry to turn Auto-Rotation off before it moves to the 2nd slide. Is there any way to turn this off? I can't find one by looking through Settings, and there's nothing on this subject in Help, that I can find. For what it's worth, whoever thought this was a good idea was wrong, but if there's a way to change so it's not the default, I'll be content.

Hi - I work from home and for the past few years have used Firefox as my preferred browser, with bookmarks and passwords all saved to my account.

My employer uses "Duo" authentication to sign into applications.

This used to work with Firefox but not it has stopped working. I get prompted to sign in but my details are recognised and it just keeps asking me to sign in. When I neter them the browser keeps balnking them out.

This works on Chrome so I know it must be something to do with Firefox.

I really don't want to change browsers but if this ca't be resolved I'll have to stop using Firefox and delete it.

After the last update to Firefox I keep getting access denied on some websites for example Lowes.com. I saw where to check security and mine is set to standard, so no joy there. I'm not a computer savvy person but I can manage with the direction and input. That being said, what can I do to fix this. I've always used Firefox but lately had to use Edge or Chrome, not my first choice. So what changed in Firefox to cause this issue as I see on your message board for several people?

When you reply, how do I know you did without me checking constantly? Do you send an email through Thunderbird to notify?
