I'm getting Access denied Reference #18.6b01cb8.1700662622.22a58314 only on tesco.com since last nights firefox update.

All other sites are funtional (at least no others found yet). I have cleared cache and cookies but still getting the issue.

The site is up and accessible by ms edge.

I have run in troubleshooting mode and taken off any extensions, still no change.

Running windows 10 (latest updates)

Malwarebytes is reporting no issues.

Hi, I suddenly have a thick white border around three sides of browser that I can't rid of. I did a search here and found what looked like a solution but there is no "Customize" button in FF any longer, so not sure how to fix this.

It is not running in compatibility mode either.

Thanks all

Steps to reproduce:

1. Have Google as the default search engine.

2. Type a search string into the address bar.

3. The address bar briefly shows a URL for the Google Search results.

4. The address bar is very quickly overwritten with the original search string.

See screenshot for example.

How do I stop step #4 happening? I want the URL to remain in the address bar, for example to be able to give somebody a link which executes the google search.

I think this is new in FF121.

Hello

Since an update from a few days ago (May 2024), my address bar/search bar is now basically outside of my PC screen, see here: https://vimeo.com/948314161

It's not a local problem, it's also happening on other PCs/Laptops I have.

How can I fix this? PS should the answer be that I need an add-on or anything like that, then it's bye bye Firefox, hello Chrome

Thank you

For some reason, recent updates caused my Firefox address bar to misbehave.

I have already murdered the unwanted search engine suggestions which the standard settings failed to kill - I just kept turning things off in about:settings until the garbage feature died.

However, I am still unable to address the most annoying bug.

When I start typing in address bar, the pop-up box with suggestions, rather than attach itself to the bottom of the address bar, goes to some imagined, predefined anchor point which is off screen, somewhere outside the confines of the window. As a result, I see some suggestions, but I no longer see what the hell I'm even typing. I am attaching a screenshot. This is super annoying, as I am literally forced to either use bookmarks, or type out urls in notepad then paste them over.

Anyone can help?

So, I've had this problem since last 3 months. I'm using Firefox with auto-update turned on. Right now my version is 110.0.

Every now and then Firefox stops to load any websites and after closing it and opening it again it won't open correctly saying that my profile was created using newer version of Firefox and I need to create new one. At some point I was on default-release-9 until I asked about it on Reddit and got a reply guiding me to check compatibility.ini in my profile directory and fair enough, when this happens, compatibility.ini indicates Firefox version 119 so Firefox is right thinking that values don't match.

But the definitive question is how do I stop Firefox from messing around with that file? I'm honestly tired of manually editing it every time Firefox stops working. I know that website loading problems can stem from my excessive uptimes but this is an issue I can work around by restarting Firefox from time to time.

I am trying to configure Firefox on macOS to not prompt the user to make it the default browser.

I am using the following script to create the profile and set the user preferences after installing Firefox by copying `Firefox.app` from the downloaded DMG: ```

  1. !/bin/sh

open -a Firefox.app --args -CreateProfile default sleep 1

write_userpref() { USER=$(whoami) PROFILE=$(ls -1 "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/" | grep -E "\.default$") cat << EOF > "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/${PROFILE}/user.js" // mandatory comment? user_pref("app.update.auto", false); user_pref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false); user_pref("app.update.enabled", false); user_pref("breakpad.reportURL", ""); user_pref("browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.topsites", false); user_pref("browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories", false); user_pref("browser.tabs.crashReporting.sendReport", false); user_pref("browser.discovery.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.defaultbrowser.notificationbar", false); user_pref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false); user_pref("browser.shell.didSkipDefaultBrowserCheckOnFirstRun", false); user_pref("browser.shell.skipDefaultBrowserCheckOnFirstRun", true); user_pref("browser.newtabpage.enabled", false); user_pref("experiments.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.pocket.enabled", false); user_pref("toolkit.telemetry.enabled", false); user_pref("update_notifications.enabled", false); EOF }

write_userpref

open -a Firefox.app --args -new-tab -P default "about:blank" sleep 3 osascript -e 'quit app "Firefox"' sleep 2

open -a Firefox.app --args -P default about:blank ```

Here's the behaviour I'm seeing:

  1. Firefox starts to an `about:blank` tab, however there is a second "Firefox Privacy Notice" tab
  2. AppleScript quits Firefox
  3. Firefox starts to an `about:blank` tab, however it is now prompting me to make it the default browser

I do not want Firefox to prompt the user to become the default browser.

My ideal scenario is that Firefox starts without the "Firefox Privacy Notice" tab and without prompting me to make it the default browser. From the observed behaviour, this doesn't seem possible.

Can anyone tell me how I can accomplish this without user interaction or MDM?

I'm using last release Firefox in a fresh install of Debian 12 with KDE. Trying to personalize colors and get a coherent style, I've installed Firefox Color and it worked fine, except for a few GUI elements.

I solved the scrollbars part with this answer:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1419353

Is there a similar setting for the menus? I mean in Firefox's menu bar or the ones popping over the page. The dropdown of the burguer menu and the bookmarks toolbar do get styled (I will include images showing the difference).

Thank you in advance and to zeroknight for sharing the bit about scrollbars!

As described in this thread (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1431159#answer-1618832), I had a problem accessing one particular domain after doing everything I could find to fix it. Setting DNS to Increased Protection fixed it. It's partly just curiosity but also concern that I'm asking if there is an issue that should be addressed.

The basic scenario: could not access one particular domain only in FF on one computer. No problems with FF on other devices and no problem with other browsers on the computer in question. Configuring DNS settings to Increased Protection is the only thing that allowed me to access that site (which happens to be the org I work for). So the setting is only necessary on this device and only for that domain.

What's the explanation or solution for ensuring I don't have other DNS issues, or something else, that will be a problem later?

When trying to launch firefox like normal I got a "Your profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible" which would keep it from starting. Periodically, with firefox not even running in the background, I would get the XULRunner error (see attached image).

Looking online for solutions I took two steps: 1. located my profiles folder and deleted it 2. reinstalled firefox entirely

As you can see by the attached image the same error messages as before would actually interrupt the install itself.

I am at a loss and any help would be appreciated since Chrome sucks and I'd like to keep using Firefox.

I use a lot of keyword search engines. This means I can type something like `kagi foobar` to search Kagi for `foobar`. However the awesome bar has a "feature" where if you type a question mark (?) anywhere it instead uses the default search engine. This means that `kagi How do I cook a turkey?` searches my default search engine for "kagi How do I cook a turkey?" rather than searching Kagi (based on the `kagi` keyword). Is there a way to disable this behaviour?

I have searched about:config and "Search Shortcuts" in preferences doesn't have a `?`. I never use `?` as a shortcut to search (I just type the keyword for the engine I want) so completely removing it would be perfect.

Hello!

I often log in to a service ticketing website to help my customers. Before emailing them I must reference the service ticket number somewhere in the email, but this is very difficult to do in Firefox. If I inspect the element this is what I see:

<em unselectable="on" style="width: 2161px;">Service Ticket #55474079</em>

I understand the unselectable attribute is on but even if I try setting it to off or deleting it all together the problem remains. Moreover, I've tried it in several browsers (Chrome, Edge, DuckDuckGo) and it works fine without any extensions or tricks.

In other words: only Firefox keeps me from selecting this very important piece of info.

Any help would be very much appreciated! I looked up help articles but nothing similar to my case. I did find an extension for the browser but I am afraid to try it due to security reasons.

Thank you!
