Hi. Since FF v103 it seems, when working with a VPN, and then trying to use also a browser extension VPN, it either does not or does not connect until after 45s. Before it was immediate. It works in all other browsers (incl FF before v103). So this is a recent change in FF that harms normal VPN connections. I found out by trial and error, that changing the port of the VPN extension to 443 and disabling and enabling the extension and going back to v103 from v103.0.1 helped, but that should not be like that. So something has been broken in the latest v103.0.1 - please kindly look into it. Thank you!

Hi, I use Firefox, with google.co.uk as my search engine. I have had a problem for several months now, whereby I cannot access images/shopping pages on Google. e.g. I enter a search criteria in Google - say, TOP GUN. I then click on "Images" option, and the "Before you proceed" page opens, ref cookies. I click on "Accept all", but the images page does not open. The same thing happens for "shopping".

I installed Google Chrome, seperately, and it works fine with that, just not with google.co.uk via Firefox. I have uBlockOrigin installed. I disabled it, but still doesnt work (although I just realised I didnt restart pc after disabling it, perhaps I should have?)

Other addons/Extensions are Dark reader, Dark theme for Google, Dark theme for YouTube, and New Tab override (plus uBlockOrigin, as already mentioned). I cleared my cache etc via Security/Privacy on Firefox settings. I used to be able to access these pages, however for past couple of months, no luck.

Any suggestions/assistance would be appreciated.

I am almost about to stop using Firefox. Why is it so hard to gain access to YouTube? Never have a problem with Microsoft Edge. If a fix cannot be made without jumping through a lot of hoops and steps, I will have to stop using Firefox. Fix this mess. This problem has been around now for some time. Get it fix or accept other users switching to other browsers that seem to have no problem at all getting to and using YouTube. Very Frustrating.

When I have FF open, then close all windows but still have FF active, I hit CMD-T or CMD-N to bring up a new tab or window and nothing happens. I repeat, repeat, repeat and still nothing. THEN if I click on the FF icon in my dock, all the tabs and windows appear in a cascade of windows or tabs like bam, bam, bam.....

This happens on two MacBook Pros around 2016 vintage. This is a new behavior this week.

In most of the apps running on MacOS, you have inside the standard "Window" top menu, a lot of options, like: - Minimize - Zoom - Tile Window to the Left - Tile Window to the Right - Move to <monitor name> ... ...etc

In Firefox (I'm using developer version, 103b), we only get the first 2 options (minimize and zoom). I have set shortcuts to easy move my windows around my monitors, but they don't work in Firefox, because those shortcuts relies on the presence of the menu option "Move to <monitor>".

Is it by design, or is there a way to get this option in the Window menu? I'm attaching the menu clip from Chrome and Firefox to illustrate the issue.

Long story short: windows update sneaked a restart under my nose caused me to lose all my previous session.

I'm attempting to recover the previous session.

I have backed up the unmodified session profile folder. But this profile folder was modified by the restart process obviously, as windows gave firefox "normal shutdown" command. How do I know that? The next time I opened it up, it's "brand new" without the "restore session" interface.

So my idea is to figure out if firefox keeps a track record of previous sessions EVEN IF THE SHUTDOWN WAS PROPER.

If it does, well I'll have to figure out a way to "trick" firefox to restore it. If it doesn't, well I'll have to manually restore it by sifting through the history.

I repeat, the key here is for me to find out whether or not firefox always keep a record of previous session somewhere.

So my question is, does it? Or does it purge all the previous session clean as long as the shutdown was deemed "correct"?

Whenever I sign into Firefox, all my themes, add-ons/extensions are added via Firefox Sync. That's fine, but the problem I have is that whenever I sign into any Firefox browser, an old theme I used to have that I no longer have on my account keeps coming back, and I've tried to find solutions to this issue, but none have had this kind of issue. It may be similar to issues those have had, or currently have, but I can't seem to do anything to remedy this issue.

Keep in mind that this is not a Firefox browser issue, it is an account issue.

I'd be deeply grateful to any assistance you may have for me.

Any way to force Firefox to prioritize IPv4 without disabling IPv6?

Firefox prioritizes IPv6 (even on a network with internet-accessible fd00:: address, which contradicts my currently set up prefix policies) over IPv4. Now the problem is that my IPv6 address is a tunnelbroker.net one, and while I still want to be able to access the IPv6 internet, I don't want a tunneled connection to be my default. And I don't want to disable IPv6 completely. Is there a way to force Firefox to prioritize IPv4 over IPv6?

Note: the first time when connecting to a website, the browser connects via IPv4 (like the prefix policies are supposed to work), but then it remembers that the website is accessible via IPv6, saves it into the content-prefs.sqlite file (removing the said file makes the connection fall back to IPv4 first again) and connects via IPv6 again. Is there a way to make Firefox NOT remember that in content-prefs.sqlite and still connect abiding the prefix policies?

Hi, I am having problems with mozilla. I uninstalled mozilla a few weeks ago because I sent my pc to service. When I received it, I tried to restore my profile backup using pasting the files saved in the profile folder. Since then mozilla has become unmanageable as when I open it it is as if it is always the first time, i.e. no history is saved, cookies and also it automatically takes the information (bookmarks, passwords and history) from chrome and puts those into mozilla.

Hi

This is on Ubuntu. I installed Firefox Developer edition to /opt/firefox and made a .desktop file I put in ~/.local/share/applications and this was working well. I added it to favourites so it appeared on the dock, and added some customizations.

But at some point Firefox started to create its own .desktop file at launch when it prompts to be default browser and you say yes, called stuff like "userapp-Firefox Developer Edition-N8YCQ1.desktop". These files fill up ~/.local/share/applications and break my existing file by making a second Firefox icon on the dock so I cannot click the first one. Also my own custom file had Desktop Actions so I could right-click the icon to open a new window or new private window, but the generated ones are barebones.

Every time I delete the "userapp" file, a new one is made the next time I open Firefox (which has now forgotten it is default browser) and the issue is back. Is there an option to disable this behaviour?

Thanks for your help
