We have an application that was integrated with several other legacy applications in the organization. We started upgrading our application to HTML 5 standards to make it work with all modern browsers such as Firefox, Chrome and Edge. Now the problem is that, our application has redirect links to 3 to 5 legacy applications that were coded for IE 7 and no where in the migration path. When the users click on these links while working on our application, Firefox opens a blank page, making them as blockers for our application uplift. 1) is there a way to force a link to open in IE while the parent page is launched using Firefox ? I have seen this link : https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43615678/force-a-link-in-i-e-to-open-in-firefox , but this is for the opposite requirement...open Firefox from IE. 2) how do you run applications requiring .cab files on Firefox ? if there is an answer for this, we don't need to worry about #1.

Thanks.

Hello team firefox!

I'm building my own webpage, where some videos are played (with scenes, so there will be a back and next button). When i embeed a video with the controlls, everything works. But: as soon as i turn on fullscreenmode (which the videos are played in normally), my two next and back buttons dissapeer (behind the video ofc).

So my questions to you: could you please send me your video control html, css and js? Would be reaaaly cool of you!

Firefox doesn't randomly load webpages

Hi,

I use Firefox v590.0.2 (64 bits) with Windows 10.

I use Firefox at my work, only for browsing our intranet. I'm a web developer so I load many pages on our intranet. Since a few weeks, I noticed that the pages are not always loaded correctly: the page starts to be loaded, and then it stops and it's loading forever (with the "Waiting for XXX" message at the bottom left). If I refresh the page it will eventually load as expected.

I tried to install a new Firefox on *another* computer, and I use it to browse the same website. And the same behavior appears: it works very fast and well for some pages, and then randomly stops working for some random pages.

On my main computer I tried to create new profiles, delete everything, without success.

I also tried to deactivate the hardware acceleration on both Firefox, without success.

When I check the Network tab from the web developer bar, I can see that some CSS files (it's not always the same, and it can be 1 or several CSS files) are not loaded (see the attachment) and appears with a grey dot, just like if the browser was trying to load them but it cannot, blocking the page. (I've also noticed it could impact other resources, like, at least images)

Before v59 I've never seen this behavior.

Note :

 - our intranet is on Sharepoint, with NTLM auth
 - at home I use Firefox on my personal computer and it works normally (but I don't browser the work intranet)
 - at work, because it's on the intranet, the network doesn't go thru a proxy
 - I'm now using Chrome because of this issue with Firefox, and the problem doesn't occur in Chrome

Thanks for any help.

We have an Add-On that will no longer work with FireFox once it updates version 60.2. It will heavily impact our stores ability to use certain functions/integration with our website until we get either a new add-on released or make a change to the site. We had planned on disabling updates for FireFox temporarily on each PC at each store but I am hoping for a workaround. I am curious if there is a list somewhere of the server IP’s/URLs that FireFox would use to update. This way I can just blacklist those IP’s for the time being until we get a new add-on released or an update to our website. This way they would not be able to download the latest update. It would prevent me from having to alter settings on each PC at each store (we have close to 70 locations and 4 computers at each). Is there such a list? And if so can someone point me there? Thanks!

I am a new developer and I'm trying to learn how cookies work, but I don't know how to view what the actual cookie value is, so that I can check if I did it correctly. I see where you can set the defaults you want and enable or disable cookies, but where can you view the content in FireFox browser? I know in Google Chrome you can see all the cookies and their values in settings, content, cookies, view all. Thanx, Gil

We created a web site that uses resources from cdnjs. This site has been live for a couple of months but we have sporadic issues with resources from this CDN and FireFox.

  • The error in the console for each script/style CDN resource is: None of the "sha256" hashes in the integrity attribute match the content of the subresource.
  • The error message in the network tab for each resource is: The connection used to fetch this resource was not secure

Resources that I have had issues with include these elements (as they appear in our web page):

Steps to reproduce

You can reproduce the problem with one of the above URLs and place it directly in the URL of the FireFox browser. The resource should load in the browser window but after pressing CTRL+F5 at least one time (could be up to 5 times) an error will appear. I can duplicate this from multiple PCs although we are located in the Netherlands so maybe a timing issue or something? This does not happen with any other resources from other CDNs that we are using like (we use integrity checks with these as well):

My environment:

  • Windows 10 Pro 64bit patched to latest
  • FireFox 60.0.1 (64-bit)

My question

Is this an issue that is specific to cdnjs and they must resolve this or is this an issue with FireFox or is this an issue with how we are requesting the resource? Is there anything else that we can do to get the ball rolling on fixing this (depending on the actual source of the problem)?

As a side note we also test our software on Google Chrome, MS Internet Explorer, MS Internet Explorer 11, MS Edge, and Opera and we have

Thank you in advance!

Hi There,

We have an issue with any version of Firefox after 57.04. It affects a few dozen of our users. It appears to be specific to our environment, but we need help tracking the source of the issue. The issue in on Windows 10 and Windows 2016 operating systems.

Firefox appears to update successfully, but when we attempt to run it the process appears in task manager using 2.5mb of ram. Nothing else happens. No visible errors, and no windows open. After killing the process we can run the 57.04 installer to revert, which results in a perfectly functional Firefox.

The issue seems to be specific to our environment, but not specific to hardware platform.

We have tried many things: -Various installers and update paths/methods -Safe Mode -Removing addons prior to upgrade -Clean uninstall/install (including deleting firefox profiles) -Disable and uninstalled AV softwares. -Disabled Group Policy Objects.

Please let us know what troubleshooting steps we can take to locate the source of the problem.

Any help is appreciated!

First off, I am an analyst and not a professional web dev person. I'm using Divi on wordpress at Bluehost. I have a website that I'm building that displays fine in all other browsers including IE but not firefox 60.0.1.

I've tried safe mode and disabling acceleration with no luck. I've also tried simplifying the website to no avail as well. It's displaying fine in every other browser, but not here.

The About Us page also displays fine everywhere including firefox. There's something about the homepage that's not working. I've noticed that if I try to select all, it's treating text as an image or at least it doesn't let me select it. If I click and drag, the entire element moves.

Thank you in advance!

I love Firefox, however it's missing a feature that would help me a lot.

I'm a developer and I switch between the Development and Production web site a lot.

I'm worried I do some action in Production thinking I'm in the Develop one. To minimize the risk there are some measures I take. 1- I use a different user in the Development version 2- The Development version as a different color 3- I use a different browser for Production (Chromium)

I would like to start using Firefox in Production too, but in order to make it safe I need to be able to change the Firefox icon in the Operating system status bar. This way I always see with icon in the Operation System status bar I should click to go to the Production Browser. If for security reasons the Firefox icon can not be changed for each profile, then if you add a "save to desktop" chrome like feature it should do the trick. In my particular use case, since the Development version does not have the favicon, It would be enough to Firefox display the favicon of the current selected tab instead of the Firefox icon.

Thanks

I am testing my own site. Where I need to log in with different User Accounts in order to check that aspect of IIS.

Firefox only allows me to log in with one account - visiting that site again just automatically logs in with that same account. It doesn't present me with the log in fields. And, of course, a browser doesn't have a 'log out' button does it?

I want to be presented with the log in fields each time I go there, so's I can log in as a different user.

So I found a thread here that was similar, talking about someone with the opposite problem - constantly being logged out. And the answer was in about:preferences and such. Well I couldn't follow that trail because about:preferences didn't bring up the options that thread talked about.

I suppose the answer is a cookies thing. I'd like to resolve this without having to delete all cookies. If I can.



edit: removed spaces before each paragraph which caused horizontal scroll-bars.

Note: I coded the site myself using largely a w3.css framework. Admittedly, the source code is messy. I'm still chimpin' around (experimenting) with things.

Incredibly, am unable to upload two 137 kb screen captures of the problem for visual reference - an endless spin wheel for 12-minutes. Wha..? In that case, please visit my site in Chrome and then Firefox to see the difference. the site again: www.twoworlds.ca/other-world.html

We have a client that used to run on local computers running the latest ESR version, they recently changed to a terminal server environment and during the setup 59.0.1 made it onto their new setup. Multiple issues have arisen that were not present on the old system and we need to move them back to the ESR version on the terminal server environment. I read online that you cannot just directly import any profile versions 55.0 and up to earlier versions so I am asking if I can instead use a mozilla account to sync over their data instead without causing a catastrophe, and if anyone happens to know what I might expect afterwards if this could potentially work.

I want to install an unsigned addon that I made. I can load it temporarily via about:debugging, but I can't actually install it. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, I couldn't actually find any explicit instructions online, so I packed the files into a zip with a .xpi extension, and tried dragging it into the about:addons page. I get a "the addon could not be installed because it appears to be corrupt" error.

After reading this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1134589, I went and installed the developer version of Firefox Quantum, but I'm having the same problem.

Using firefox developer edition, aurora update channel, 60.0b2 (64-bit), macOS 10.13.3. The functionality of the bookmarks sidebar has changed recently: command-clicking folders in the side bar used to be a shortcut to "open all in tabs" for that folder. Now command-clicking selects that folder for multiple selection. Additionally the new behaviour is inconsistent with command-clicking a leaf node, which opens that specific bookmark in a new tab.

The old behaviour was incredibly useful for having categories of folders to open while still being able to select specific bookmarks. I think the new behaviour would be much better for this use case if you could multiple select a combination of folders and bookmarks, and additionally if after multiple selection there was an option for "open all in tabs". Currently having multiple folders selected does not have this option. Was the change intended? Is the only alternative (outside of enabling bookmarks toolbar) individually clicking bookmarks?

I'm a web developer that setup a local environment under Linux Mint.

For some reason, Firefox Developer Edition (59.0b7 64-bit) cannot access sites on my localhost. The interesting thing is that Firefox Quantum 58.0.1 (64-bit) is showing these local sites perfectly fine. I've tested other browsers, including Konqueror and Lynx, and these work fine also.

I've setup my environment so that apache2 can serve pages from a 'wildcard' virtual host. Using symlinks, I can link my project files to another directory that functions as the web root. Thus:

/home/me/business/projects/client/index.html => /home/me/business/www/client/index.html

Navigating to http://client.dev brings up the page perfectly in Firefox 58, Konqueror, and Lynx.

However, Firefox Developer Edition, AND Google Chrome, both fail to load the page. The URL changes from http://client.dev to https://client.dev and throws this message:

"Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at client.dev."

I've played around with the about:config settings for Network.dns.* but nothing seems to help. Also, the apache logs do not produce anything useful.

Your input will be greatly appreciated.
