Over the past few days FireFox v. 99.0.1 had been non-responsive on a tab.

Got to the point I had to close FF and tried to use cCleaner to clear cache/history etc.

However cCleaner could not proceed as it claimed FF was still open.

Using Windows Task Manager I found FireFox was "Suspended" (screenshot 1)

I then terminated the task - so cCleaner could proceed.

Then FF appeared to work OK. Until the next time....

It just happened a few minutes ago closing FF - using cCleaner - once again FF was "suspended" and had to be terminated in Task Manager.

On FF help it said Update to version 100 which I did BUT the update got stuck on the FF Update - for several minutes (definitely over 10 mins) so I had to terminate the FF Updater using Windows Task Manager (screenshots 2 & 3) again used Task Manager to terminate that.

FF appeared to open OK even showed the version 100 What's new tab.

BUT when I used FF help to check version I got Restart FF to update to version 100 (screen shot 4) Perhaps the last might temporary due to terminating the what appeared to be stuck Updater, but it was worth mentioning.

PC details: OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home Version 10.0.19044 Build 19044 System Model HP Pavilion 590-p0097c Desktop PC System Type x64-based PC Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8400 CPU @ 2.80GHz, 2808 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s) Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

I'm uploading changed webpages to the internet on a daily basis, using Firefox. I'm Using Firefox version 100.0 now and I have discoverd a problem with version 100.0 . From Firefox version 99.01 and downwards, this problem never existed before. The refresh button in Firefox 100.0 ( Ctrl+R ) no longer works good anymore! Sometimes it works good, the other time it's not working correct anymore, you will not see the latest uploaded webpage on the internet. The only solution to this problem is bij closing Firefox and restarting it. Only then you will see the latest uploaded webpage on the internet. Please have a serious look at this annoying problem in version 100.0. This problem can only be discoverd by people who are uploading new webpages to the internet, not bij the regular internet-users/visitors.

Then I don't know what to do?. (This was done in a default Firefox profile).

In response to the comments, the about:webrtc page was no very usefull, have no idea of where to Logs go. Running „find /tmp -iname "*AEC*"“ or „find /tmp -iname "*log*"“ did no help. And the link is https://cloud.geny.io/ you must login and create a virtual machine then open the visor.

Hello,

When accessing my Old Navy account they require a 2 step process for Logging In. Once I click on the login button it takes me to a page where it asks for my email. Here's where I hit the issue: FireFox Password Manager does not fill this in for me; not even the auto-fill works here. After I enter my email it then takes me to a page where my password is filled in (yay!). I'm glad that it at least fills in the password but I'd like to not have to fill in my email on the previous page.

I tried to create a new entry in Password Manager but it won't take the entire url; it shortens it. This url changes each time I go thru the process which complicates everything. I was hoping to take one of those urls (https://secure-oldnavy.gap.com/my-account/sign-in?flowId=wJb1e) but it shortened it to just (https://secure-oldnavy.gap.com). I even tried creating a new entry without the last few characters (https://secure-oldnavy.gap.com/my-account/sign-in?flowId=) but again it shortened it.

Is there a way to get FF Password Manager to provide auto-fill of my email address?

Thanks, Andre'a

Witam, Mam problem. Jak mam uruchomionego Outlook i działa synchronizacja maili bez problemu. W momencie gdy uruchamiam firefox przestaje działać synchronizacja( wysyłanie i odbieranie maili). Jeżeli uruchomię ponownie outlook przy działającym juz firefox to problem znika. Według Microsoft problemem jest Firefox:

"Nie wykluczone że moduł zmieniający połączenie VPN wbudowane w FF realizuje jakieś niestandardowe tunelowanie informacji, co przeszkadza w nawiązywaniu synchronizacji poczty tego akurat klienta poczty."

Powyżej informacja od Microsoftu.

Hello,

I use FF with the setting on start to restore the tabs of the last session.

Now I need a specific tab active/focused on start. (It is a WebRTC for our phone system and if it not focused at start ring tone will not be played)

Is there a way to start with my last opened tabs restored but this specific tab active and in selected/focused.

Pinning this tab seems to load it but WILL not play a ringtone without clicked first. If I end FF with this tab active and therefore the tab is active on next start the ring tone will be played.

But knowing me I WILL forget to click on this tab either on start or before ending FF.

I am running Firefox 91.9.0esr and would like to know how to resize the URL / Address bar. I have found out how to resize the search bar with the following changes in about:config and using userChrome but setting #urlbar-container {max-width: 100px !important;} does not work:

=======================

browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests = True browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus = False

1) Type about:config in the browser's address bar. 2) Confirm at the prompt that you will accept the risk and to view all. 3) Search for the following configuration preferences and set them all to FALSE (go slow):

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus = False browser.urlbar.update1 = False browser.urlbar.update1.interventions = False browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips = False browser.urlbar.update1.view.stripHttps = False

First, I apoligize if this is not correctly posted here but this kind of fit multiple categories.

I love Firefox and have used it for quite a long time. However, recently I have had multiple issues, most which have not been resolved. This issue however needs to get fixed because I cannot do this every time. For some reason, if I close the browser and open it again, my account has been disconected and it wants me to log in again. I did find a post regarding this from 10 months ago which a user stated the following:


"Your ‘logged-in’ status is stored in special cookies. If the cookie is removed, you are logged out. You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember. Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings. Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off."



I followed this hoping it would be the end of it but it still keeps on happening. If I can't get a solution to this, I will have to use another browser. I hate to think that will happen as no other browser has been as good a fit as Firefox but as I am sure you can imagine, this is getting to be too difficult of a process to do 10-20 times a day.

Thank you for reading and I hope someone has some sort of idea on how I might overcome this annoyance. Stay safe and healthy!

Hello,

Before the release of Firefox 99, the drag and drop function of e-mail using OWA (Microsoft Outlook) stopped working. In the last version of 99, it started working again (and I was very happy). My browser just updated to 100 and it stopped working again (and, of course, Firefox recommends not downgrading).

This is getting very frustrating, as I use Firefox at work and it is actually a lot of time wasted, going in and attaching files without drag and drop. I am on the verge of abandoning Firefox as my browser, since these features work in both Safari and Chrome. However, I do like the usability and security of Firefox, so I am hoping you can fix this very soon.

I wanted to print out an order placed online but could only print part of it.

The order took up about 1.5 pages when displayed in Firefox, but I could only print the upper 2/3 of it. That’s all the Print Preview displayed. It was cut off at the bottom. There was no option to print the missing lower third or a second page.

I can scroll Firefox to display the lower part but Print Preview still shows only the upper part.

I can change FF’s scale to 80% in order to show the whole order on the screen, but Print Preview still only shows the upper part.

I can scale Print Preview to 70%, but then it’s difficult to read.

I don’t recall having this problem with earlier versions of Firefox.

How can I print my order on 2 pages so that I can read it?

Buenos días Estoy utilizando una web cuya certeza de seguridad es absoluta, pero el navegador no lo cree así.

Necesito crear una excepción para la misma. Me conecto a través de una VPN en un navegador instalado en una VM. Todo funcionaba correctamente, hasta que hoy he actualizado el navegador.

Ahora aparece momentaneamente (entorno a medio segundo) la típica página que te alerta de que la web puede no ser segura, donde salen 2 botones, el que dice: "Retroceder (recomendado)" y el de: "Avanzado" para añadir una excepción. Pero automáticamente el navegador carga otra página que dice: "Uf. Tenemos problemas para encontrar ese sitio".

Este ordenador es seguro, está en una intranet (o más bien extranet) así que me sobra al seguridad. No la quiero desactivar al 100% por que hay veces que no uso la VPN, pero ecesito poder conectarme a esa web.

¿Alguna solución? Ya he intentado varias cosas buscando en google, y nada funciona.
