Hi, I planned to block my users from installing extensions/add-ons. I found an article that might be the answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1308646). I tried to create a simple policy (below), but somehow it does not work (I can still install any add-on/extension). What is wrong with my script? I'm using Firefox ESR 78.11.0 (64-bit) by the way.

My "policies.json" looks like this:

{

"policies": {
  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "*": {
      "blocked_install_message": "Blocked!",
      "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
      "installation_mode": "blocked"
    }
  }
}

Sincerely, Jonathan

https://mail.yahoo.com

When clicking on subject line in Firefox 107 page either fails to respond, will respond and render a white page, or respond and render the website chrome but not the content of the eMail.

Sometimes the page will render an email but all links, and scrolling are disable.

Only way to get page to display correctly is to press hot keys "ctrl+f5"

Have reset Firefox, attempted safe mode, and have cleared cache, happens on Windows 10, and Windows 11 (most recent service pack on each)

I recently updated to 107.0 (64-bit) by the usual Linux update. On Nov 26 2022 I used Google Translate. I just discovered these directories: 2022-11-26 22:07:20 /media/sf_G_DRIVE/f_files 2022-11-26 21:30:46 /media/sf_G_DRIVE/g_files The files in them are all rwxrwx--- I looked at the images and recognized the sources as being from the Russian Federation archive that I visited at those times via automatic Russian-English translation by Google Translate.

Does anyone have an explanation how these directories and files were created?

Thanks -- Mark.

Dear community,

User in our engineering dept would like to use Fiefox Developer Edition to develop custom applications. As an IT I need to check application regarding security and support levels. I already check your support options – community and commercial so I would like to send you some questions regarding data protection. Please enter yes or no.

1 The application must not automatically transfer any company proprietary data to external networks (like the Internet): 2 The application should not open listener ports on the client: 3 The application must work with the existing security settings, e.g. no changes in GPO-setting or Edge/Chrome-settings (e.g. they must work without changing ActiveX settings): 4 The application must not reduce the security level of the computer system (e.g. the application must not exchange DLL-s or other files with lower and unpatched versions): 5 The application must work without admin privileges:

Containers are useful for using multiple accounts/logins in one browser instance. However, Google Docs does not work correctly. Every time I open a Google Docs/Sheets/etc. file in one container, it loads in a new tab in another container. It does this even if I copy the link into a tab with the correct container. I need to keep my Google accounts separated: one is personal, the other is for work. I like Firefox, and use it to get away from Google in other ways. But I can't escape Google because of work and sharing files with certain people. I hope there is a fix for this. Thanks in advance.

I know this is most likely a feature, but it's been annoying the hell out of me since I switched from Chrome and I don't know how to disable it. I have looked at multiple (~3) Reddit threads (two of which were archived) which gave me a total of 0 answers, I've looked at other forums, and I've found, get this, nothing. It's so annoying when for whatever reason, my music gets paused and then it's not at the volume I need it to be at, so I turn it up and then almost immediately turn it back down because of the audio fading. All I want is to know how to disable this, PLEASE.

I am using the latest version of Firefox with Mojave on a Mac.

Lately I have experienced slowness despite the fact that I didn't add any software and I have Norton checking for viruses. Recently I got a message "Your system has run out of application memory" when I had 5 tabs open in Firefox. I checked Activity Monitor and it showed Firefox using 1.16 GB. 7 other apps were open, the next one with the highest memory usage was Mail (465 MB). Activity Monitor showed 30 instances of FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content entries.

I attached a screen capture showing what Firefox was using in one of these instances. Is this "normal" with 5 tabs open?

I closed the open tabs and quit Firefox. Memory usage by Firefox went down, but after a short time the problem happened again.

A search on the internet showed lots of similar complaints about FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content. Is this a known bug? Any way to avoid this problem?

Thanks.

Every time I close and re-open firefox, the extensions Ublock Origin and Translate Web Pages become invisible in my tool bar even though they are pinned. The extensions also stop working until I disable and then enable them again, as well as this they also lose all settings I have saved on them. For some reason other extensions such as Youtube enhancer do not do this and work perfectly fine. I have tried looking up the question to find related but not applicable solutions. any help appreciated

Problem I had two versions of Firefox open. Window "A" (my primary window) had many open tabs. Window "B" had only three tabs open. Like a knucklehead I accidentally closed the wrong window, "A". Upon restarting only the "B" version was there.

Possible Solution Two days ago I cloned my "C" drive as a backup. Although the Profile folder on the backup will only have 90+% of the tabs - I can gratefully live with that. I just need to know what files to copy over from the backup drive Profile folder to the messed up drive's Profile folder. I am hoping it will be that easy and I can copy the tab files and not the entire Profile folder. Thanks.
