I'm trying the second time, hopefully to fix this very frustrating issue on my website.

So.. in Firefox, I get random 302 Found statuses for some random pages (and the pages redirects to the user account).

I double-checked in Chrome, and the same page that is 302 in FF is 200 in Chrome. I tried cURL on the same page, and I'm getting => HTTP/2 200

The server is secure (HTTPS) so can anyone let me know why this behaviour? Prior to FF 82, everything was fine.

Thanks!

Now I find myself typing in the code several times before I realize I'm not typing anywhere at all.

Reproduce: I enabled Arabic as default language for Firefox in MacOS.

Issue: Now, I have a mixture or Digits format between Arabic Numbers & Hindu-Arabic Numbers. As you can see even with Firefox version from About window: 81.0.2 ‏(٦٤ بتة)

and Developer Tools too, see attached screenshot.

Note for Translators, Arab Countries don't use same digits formats.

- Eastern Arab countries are using Hindu-Arabic Numbers (٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩) - Western Arab countries are using the Arabic Numbers (0123456789 which are universal in this era)

References:

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_numerals - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Arabic_numerals

Workaround: I switch back to English when needed. And usually keep another browser for development.

How It should be: I am from Algeria (a Western Arabic country) & an developer (hobby). I expect to set Arabic language with Arabic Numbers format (and It is already set in MacOS preferences)

Possible Correction: - Split Arabic Language locale into 2 (East & West) or Have a special settings for locale formats - I thing most programmer are using dev tool in English even Firefox in mother language. Not sure how to fix this. It is similar to CLI that are not translated to cursive and RTL scripts.

I am using the latest version of Firefox on a brand new IMac running 10.15.7. Since I got this new computer Firefox has been incredibly slow when accessing eBay. It can take forever to scroll through my image file to find an image to load on an eBay listing. When I try to scroll through the image file most of the time Firefox will freeze every 40-60 images and will not respond to the cursor movement for anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes at which point it comes to life for a few seconds and then freezes again. I can do most other things on eBay and other websites except loading images.

There is a second problem with Firefox. I frequently get the following error from eBay "https://www.ebay.com/n/error?statuscode=500. The problem is that this appears to be a Firefox issue. eBay directs me to go to home page and when I then try to reload the offending page I get the same error message over and over again, however if I close Firefox and re-start Firefox I can get to the page that generated the error message. I get the same problem with CanadaPost. Firefox gives me an error message telling me that the page doesn't exist. I closed Firefox and reload CanadaPost website and then I can get to the page.

This happens multiple times a day and only with Firefox. Other websites and other browsers don't have this problem.

Can some one help me with this? Contacting Mozilla is impossible thus far. I cannot even add the images from my desktop.

Hi There, I'm on the firefox beta channel presently v82.0 using web browser on mac v10.15.7 and using this website "https://www.roadstercycle.com" which uses a paypal cart for shopping. Seems every time i add something to the cart it makes a "new" cart so i can never get more than one item in it. I have no problems with Safari - so its something to do with Firefox as opposed to the website (methinks.) I restarted firefox in "safe mode" and the problem still persists. I disabled "enhanced tracking protection" as well to noavail.

Like with most things its probably not a bug but a feature but I'd be curious to get your take on it.

Thanks, Stephen

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

Hello, I just recently installed FF 82 on my Mac (Catalina) and noticed a weird bug when printing PDF files.

The printed page seems to have extra margins on the Top and left, so some of the info is printed off the page.

My FF version is not using the new print prompt that looks like Chrome's.

1) The document size is Letter 2) Printing with Letter paper selected and scale 100%. 3) Didn't change any margins or other settings. 4) Attached is what I got from the printer.

Is this a bug? Has anyone noticed something similar?

Hello!

I'm working on a small game (web-based) and I'm experiencing a very weird error with the new Firefox 82 update.

What I'm experiencing:

1. I can't logout. Every time I go to /logout, FF refreshes the account page. If I do the same thing on Chrome, it works. 2. I post something on the Forum - page refreshes. If I do CMD+SHIFT+R, the post shows up. 3. I can't login. I login, page stays on an AJAX request with loading. I do CMD+SHIFT+R, it logs me in and goes to the account.

This was all previously working fine in FF 81, and everything IS working as expected in Chrome.

I tried in Vanilla FF (without any plugins) and same issue. I disabled all external scripts that could cause this, and nothing is working.

Example here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/isba772aj49cpoz/Screen%20Recording%202020-10-25%20at%2020.46.04.mov?dl=0

Firefox, latest version, keeps logging me out of sites. I have tried all troubleshooting suggestions offered on the web that I could find, short of starting all over by resetting profile, which I do NOT want to do.

Anyone have any suggestions other than the standard ones about cookies, preference settings having to do with cookies, private browsing, deleting all cookies, deleting cookies files in profile folder, extension issues, etc?
