I need to run speech recognition in Firefox (OS solutions are not suitable in my case), but I can't get it to work. I've tried following these instructions in Nightly, Dev and regular version, but they all end with a network error. I also asked my friends to check and they had the same thing happen. Do I need to follow the steps to run offline or is the problem much deeper?

Firefox Dev 124.0b2 (64-bit) Firefox Nightly 125.0a1 (2024-02-22) (64-bit)

Hello,

Like I suppose any user of older systems (Macs...) that cannot be updated to a newer OS version and thus locked-in to an older Firefox browser I received an email today:

"Don’t stop the sync. Upgrade your Firefox before March 31st."

Why, why, why??

Why would Mozilla take away this last little bit of usefulness after already having abandoned all updates to the browser itself? Why actively "fix" something that ain't broke in a why that does actually break it?

And don't give me the sacrosanctuous security argument please ;) - I never synced sensitive information, not even my browsing history. If security *is* the reason it should be hardly more difficult to disable/disallow just the syncing of that information at the server end. We're clearly speaking at a change on that end anyway, otherwise everyone NOT running the very latest version would be urged to update, not just users of v78 and older.

Anyway, I'm sadly aware of the fact this little rant or even a concerted action isn't likely to change anything, so what options are there? Any suggestions for browser extensions that provide syncing of bookmarks and maybe open tabs or even browser preferences?

Thanks!

PS: I'm posting this from another older system currently still running a Ubuntu 14.04 version that is in fact hardly younger than my Mac's OS but still enjoys Firefox updates...

Note: I see the banner: "Your browser is being managed by your organization.", There I dont see any of these settings controlled except primary password is turned off.

Firefox regularly forces me to restart the browser because of background updates being executed. When loading a new page I get: "Restart to Keep Using Firefox - An update to Firefox started in the background...". (see image below) Background updates of Firefox are disabled in the browsers preferences. (see image below) After restarting the browser, I actually noted, that the version is still the same as before (Noticed this the first time today, when taking the screenshot). (see image below) Anyway, it's a really annoying fact which made me and some colleagues almost leaf Firefox, even though I have been forever.

What is causing this issue and how can I stop it?

System:

  • Windows 10
  • Firefox 122.0.1 (and prior versions)
  • Reproducible on other machines
  • Machines are not managed remotely

I have enabled privacy.resistFingerprinting in Firefox. I have also set my default zoom level to 133%

When I open a website (e.g. https://github.com/), it is zoomed to 133% as expected. If I then navigate to a page on that website (e.g. https://github.com/pricing) using the menu at the top of the page, then the new page is still zoomed to 133%. So far, so good.

However, on the new page (https://github.com/pricing) if I increase the zoom over 133%, then navigate back to the original page (https://github.com/) using the menu at the top of the page, then my zoom level is reset to 100%.

Is this expected behaviour? I would have thought that the zoom level would be reset to 133%, not 100%.

I found this, which seems somewhat related: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1609880

Is there a way to rename things in the Passwords list? I'm not concerned about MY password or sign-in, but what appears in the list. A name such as "login.live.com" tells me nothing about what site that sign-in will take me to. I'd like to be able to rename it with something that gives me a hint.

When I'm viewing a PDF from within Firefox and try to print the page, it shows a smaller version between 1/2-3/4 of the size of the paper. I have "fit to page selected" and this doesn't change it. I try a larger than 100% scale and this doesn't change it either.

However when I download the pdf and pull it up using Acrobat it allows me to print full page, fit to page, scale, etc no problem.

Initially I thought it was my printer, but I removed and reinstalled the drivers for the printer and I don't have this issue with any other program except for printing from Firefox. It's almost like the Firefox browser has too small of a page default set so that it's fitting to a page, but the page is smaller than 8.5x11 printer paper.

How do I fix this?

Hello, so I have been putting my custom links onto the 'top sites' start page in Firefox, by editing the icons and putting the URL, etc. It is a great 'speed dial' type feature I love. One thing has me tearing my hair out after trying all ways to try and fix this to appear to my liking, is the 'custom icon' from the website not showing in the sites I want to 'speed dial' Facebook and YT show up fine, but random sites I want on the page don't do this. I don't care why this is anymore, please don't give lengthily fixes. It's just silly you need a working URL with an icon at the end of it to display this properly. It did make me very mad, can you tell, even madder when I saw it done as it should be in OPERA browser, on their 'top sites', or 'speed dial' customizable home page they have the sensible option there to pick your own icon, you can put in a folder on your desktop if you like, no working URL needed! start a collection of what icons you want to see on your own start page. Can you please implement this 'common sense' modification as soon as possible, it will take only minutes of code writing i'm sure. I do not want to, but I will go to Opera as my main browser for this common sense functionality, good luck and thank you.

We have an intranet site behind an Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) - after updating the SSL certificate, the website will no longer allow Firefox clients to log in.

They will be prompted to sign in (with a default sign in prompt, not even the website login prompt), even if you enter the correct user/password it will continue to prompt you. The new cert works with Edge, Safari, and Chrome - I've enabled the following settings in about:Config network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris, network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris, network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris, and set signon.autologin.proxy to be true - but the issue still persists.

Has anyone seen this/been able to figure this out? I've seen a few other posts, but no resolutions. Does Firefox not support Certificate Signature Algorithm SHA-384 With RSA Encryption? This is the only difference I can see between the 2 certificates; the original is SHA-256 With RSA Encryption.

Thank you!

Hi everyone

I've experienced a problem with Firefox on the Metacritic-Website. As you can see on the attached picture on the left, it's not possible to set a filter for "release date". There's no problem when I use Chrome (see picture on the right). The problem still persists when I start Firefox in safe-mode, so it's not related to an extension. I could replicate the problem on another system as well. Firefox on iOS has no problem setting the filter however. Do you know what the problem could be?

Thanks, Phil

Hi all,

First time posting so apologies if I mess anything up. My company has created an inbound calling service using twilio under the hood. We utilize webworkers to send cross tab messaging around call actions to the twilio service that manages a particular call. One specific feature that is critical to us is the ability to answer a phone call from any tab that our service is running on.

With one of the recent updates to firefox we noticed that this feature no longer works because the calls to navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia() would not resolve until you clicked on the page where this action was being called. This effectively means that you can only answer the phone call on the page that actually houses the twilio logic for answering the phone call (via a button action).

Is this an intended security improvement? If not, is there anyway to prevent this from happening other than holding on to an open mic stream for the entire time the application is open?

Thank you for reading!

WED 21FEB24 The urgent issue is that in the last few weeks, many web pages do not load content, just a grey or white screen. Some will load the header. I am the Executor for someone's estate, and I am having this trouble with some financial websites that I must access to do the job.

Its been many years since I upgraded anything. It might be that Macintosh Firefox 78.15.0 esr (64 bit) and Thunderbird 60.9.1 are the newest revs that work with OSX 10.11.6 El Capitan. I have a 2011 MacBookPro.

I don't like the changes in the user interface that Apple put into OSX after El Capitan. But I may be forced to upgrade. Too late in life to learn Linux.

Maybe the minimalist solution is to upgrade Firefox. But that may require upgrading OSX, and Apple has made it really hard to do that unless you go to the very newest. OTOH I don't know if the newer OSX will run on my 2011 MacBook Pro. If I clicked on "software update" in About This Mac, what would happen? would it just start doing it, or tell me about it first?

The last time I upgraded something, probably Thunderbird but maybe it was Firefox, I had to learn a complicated process to copy & save the User Profiles (they are in a hidden directory), and then install them into the new rev. I don't want to go through that again. I just want to run the dmg file.

There used to be a Mozilla web page with all the versions & you could download the dmg file you wanted.

If I still have problems, I would have to buy a much newer computer. A several year old MacBookPro. But I don't like the "new" disk formatting method Apple created. It saves space by not actually making copies of files, but uses a pointer to one copy. So there is a single point of failure, which makes copies pointless. I want to keep using OSX Extended (Journaled) and I would have to have the seller of the computer do that for me, before I used Migration Assistant to put my stuff on it. I also hate the welded-on hard drive; being able to pull the drive is the best "broken hardware" solution.

I don't recall if El Capitan has the "OSX Recovery" system or if that happened in a later rev.

I use SuperDuper to make a clone of my hard drive as a backup & archive. I wonder if I could connect a copy on an external drive and then startup using the external copy. Then I could upgrade Firefox and see if it works, then do the same for OSX if necessary, and Thunderbird.

Suggestions & how-to info needed. TIA

Hi,

I wish to provide a co worker with access to some websites (and provide the site passwords), this will involve - from what I can see setting up a separate FF profile (that we both sync to - by using a Firefox Account) on my PC, somehow copying the bookmarks and passwords from my general profile into a new 'co worker' profile, the co worker (via sync) would then see the bookmark, and then hopefully also have the password available.

I can see how to export/import all my bookmarks, or have her sync to my 'general' FF account quite easily, but I only want to give her access to work related bookmarks and PWds.

Any thoughts appreciated.
