How do I have all my bookmarks and folders sorted by name automatically and permanently? When I open Bookmarks I want to see the folders sorted and the bookmarks inside each folder sorted, automatically so I never have to manually. In other words, behave like Windows File Explorer.

I'm almost certain I had it working that way on a previous installation of FireFox, but I can't get this new installation of Firefox to do the same.

When I launch Firefox (version 115.0.1), it establishes and maintains multiple connections to '*.googleusercontent.com' until I close Firefox. This is bull shit is totally unacceptable. I have been using Firefox since version 1.0.6 but I will dump Firefox for another web browser if this problem cannot be fixed.

How do I stop these connections being made?

I have already cleared cookies and caches, minimized my Firefox privacy and Avast anti-virus app with an exception for Wyndham Hotels and I still get the same error message:

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.wyndhamhotels.com/" on this server.

Reference #18.a52c817.1688939580.337c4864

I also tried accessing it on Edge browser with the same message. I called Wyndham and they said their website is not down and working on all browsers. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hello. I recently moved from windows to Linux Mint, and noticed the behavior of the Picture in Picture window is different when resizing. On windows, the aspect ratio is kept. while on Linux, it is free form, making these black bars around the video, so I have to resize it very carefully to not show any black bars.

How can I make the PiP on Linux behave like on Windows? That means resizing keeping the aspect ratio.

Attached are the comparisons between Windows and Linux Mint.

Thank you very much!

I recently started experiencing errors for logging into third-party websites that use Google sign-in.

On one site (coches.net), I have the sign-in popup loop for like 3 times and then disappear but leaves me unlogged.

On the other site (etoro.com), the sign-in popup shows but then I get an error message from the site about the login. Then it won't let me reconnect since CloudFlare won't accept my "I'm not a robot" prompt and keeps reloading the same page.

This started happening yesterday. I'm not aware of any Firefox or Anti-Virus updates that have happened since, measures not existing yesterday.

I can sign-in correctly from Chrome with no issues.

My firefox installation always run in English with all of its interface elements being in English. One of the recent updates introduced a weird behavior - some of the UI became Russian. I seem to have fixed/bypassed the issue last time it happened https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415337 but nothing works this time.

Most of my firefox is in English, but some elements such as tab titles in devtools, browser popups "do you want to leave this page", tooltips in this very text form where I'm typing right now - are in Russian for no apparent reason.

I have another profile on this firefox installation and it's completely in English as intended. I tried to check for what changed in about:config, looking for "language" or "locale" string, and there's nothing that stands out. I've tried clearing startup cache, switching language back and forth, restarting firefox.

Any suggestions?

The only icons I can see on the right hand side of my toolbar is the NoScript icon, along with the Save to Pocket, FF Account, Extensions and hamburger buttons.

I should have about 12.

I just installed a new system, launched FF and set it up to sync with my account. Everything else appears to run fine - passwords, history, etc. The Tree Style Tab works fine too.

I have double checked the other solutions I found here, such as private viewing options, or trying to find the icons in the customize screen, but that's not the issue.

My other FF instances on other machines are still fine.

I just updated FF on this problem machine to 115.0.2 but no joy.

So, whenever I open Firefox it will act normally and then after a second close by itself and when I reopen it, it will be in remote mode. I know how to fix this via about:config and do this every time, but I would much prefer a permanent fix, nothing else on Firefox or my computer indicates something else is going on, its just this. I've even at one point uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it didn't help.

Is it possible to permanently set a different search engine for private browsing? I have Google set as my search engine in my normal browsing mode, but I'd like the private browser search engine to be permanently set to DuckDuckGo.

(I realise I can manually set it each time to DuckDuckGo but this is tedious.)

Here is a sample URL that works on Microsoft Edge (current version) and receives an error message on Firefox (115.0.2): https://www.t-mobile.com/home-internet The error received from the web site when using FF is:

Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.

FF was working with all T-Mobile pages a few months ago and now fails with this same error on most pages.

To test on Edge, I pasted the identical address that failed in FF into Edge and it worked fine so I am confident I am comparing the same web page on the two browsers.

Thanks for your help. Claude

Firefox is downloading files directly to my Downloads folder instead of asking despite having turned on every setting that says it should ask first. Under about:preferences I have turned on "Always ask you where to save files" under Downloads, and I have set Applications to "Ask whether to open or save files". I have even gone in to about:config and turned off "browser.download.useDownloadDir", but the files are still going directly to my default folder.

This issue is so annoying, that I need to ask Firefox community what I can do. So, the problem is, that if I set custom home page called Infinity New Tab (Pro), then I will restart Firefox, then it reverts back to Firefox Home.

I think, that this is completely unrelated to malware, because I'm scanning my computer very often.

Are my preferences/settings corrupted?

However the Infinity New Tab (Pro) is no longer available in addons.mozilla.org, so if you need .xpi file, then tell me, and I will attach that file here.
