Trying To Fix The Wrong Time in Firefox Ended Up Removing Firefox's Ability to Display a Player Within a Site if Another Site Has Embedded it.

My Firefox browser did not update with daylight savings (this is my first time being in a country with daylight savings with this PC) and now all in-browser times are an hour behind, which is already really confusing for someone experiencing daylight savings for the first time. Now that I do not have a phone, this went from mildly annoying to really messing up my day-to-day life. As a result, I researched, found and followed this question-and-answer proposed solution to my issue but it didn't work. Now, I've been pushed a step backward because I have also lost the ability to view TV shows and movies on third party websites because the player will not load and a 'Website will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it' notice will pop up (image for reference). This is super infuriating due to the fact that my PC is older and genuinely cannot run any kind of chromium browser and Firefox is the only way I can access said third party sites. It would be wonderful is anyone had a solution for both issues; thank you!

Firefox used to auto fill forms for me but lately it does not. On the rare occasion that it does (for one web site), it fills in one field at a time, not all at once like it used to. It does not fill in my address either.

I tried the usual troubleshooting without success. I went to settings, privacy & security, passwords, and made sure "fill usernames and passwords automatically" was checked. I went to the history section and made sure "remember form and search history" was checked. I went to the custom settings for history section and made sure that Firefox does not clear "form & search history" when it closes. For some reason,(I am in the US) I don't have a "forms and auto fill" section to scroll down too as some users suggest, nor do I have the "auto fill address" box to check or uncheck. Nor do I have a "saved addresses" button to check or uncheck or where I can supposedly add, edit, or delete an address.

I am running windows 11 and use Malewarebytes for my antivirus, although I can find no settings in the Malwarebytes suite that would impact Firefox's ability to auto fill forms. Any suggestions??

This is so very simple and so the fact that it seems impossible to get a straight answer makes me instantly suspicious. Here is the question: What is my location? Simple! In other words, I have Mozilla Firefox installed on a physical device, which HAPPENS to be a desktop computer, not a mobile phone, etc. In other words, it stays here. So why do alllllll the sites act as though I am literally 930 miles...from my actual, physical location! I have NO VPN running...none. Unfortunately, Firefox is using Google location services, WHICH IS THE PROBLEM. I just installed Firefox, instead of Chrome, to solve that problem. I guess THAT was a stupid move, Firefox is worse!

There needs to be a manner in which the USER can INPUT THEIR LOCATION. I'm not trying to "trick" anyone...I'm actually trying to give people ACCURATE INFORMATION which apparently is beyond the capabilities of the internet, to provide.

I have just started getting Access Denied messages from my Banking account. The bank is telling me that it is due to updated security and that I should start using Chrome or Edge browsers which I do not want to do. It has something to do with the Enhanced Tracking Protection settings. Does anyone know how to fix this?

One screenshot shows an image from the faa.gov website from Chrome that is clean and easy to read. The other image shows the same website from Firefox, with the menu popups already activated when I have not selected or hovered the mouse over anything. They just open automatically, and I cannot make them go away. Screen is cluttered, making this webpage unreadable and unnavigable. Other pages on website do the same in Firefox. This DOES NOT HAPPEN in Chrome. Some setting is off. All selections I have found for popups make no difference. This happens with other websites. How do I fix this?

Some of this will likely sound ridiculous.

Yesterday, I noticed my ad blocking wasn't working. I eventually realized Ublock had been uninstalled. I'm still dumbfounded about how this happened, I mean, you really can't do that by mistake.

Today, same thing happened with loss of ad blocking. This time, I noticed UBlock was not on my toolbar. It also did not appear in the Puzzle Piece drop down menu. It was still installed, but inoperable. I had to drag 'n drop it's .xpi onto the addon manager to revive it.

The other day , I posted about blank buttons on my toolbar. Not only blank, but not operational for whatever addon they represented. Today, after the Ublock reinstatement, once again blank button appeared.

I develop profiles in stages, like templates for further enhancements. Addons, etc. Before I did anything, I went to three of those more basic profiles, one more further developed in terms of customization, to compare with the current one.

They both not only had blank areas where before there were icons, but UBlock was uninstalled on all of them.

Have you ever seen anything like that?

I know, I know, you think I'm crazy!

BTW, I cleared the startup cache on both, as was suggested in the previous thread, and the icons returned to the toolbar, but in two of them, they are still missing in about:addons

I could be wrong but I thought there was a button or something added to private browsing that would clear all cache, cookies, etc. We are doing testing on websites. We send the new files over to the server, then open the web page in a private window to see all our updated changes without anything loading from the FF cache. In the past, we had to close the private window each time we make a change, then reload the page in a new window. I thought there was a feature added to clear everything from a private window so I could just hit refresh in the open window and see everything fresh. Am I remembering incorrectly? I checked everywhere I could and cannot find this.

FLAW | BREACH | BUG - Setting privacy.resistFingerprinting to TRUE changes Resolution from 1920x1080x24 to 1920x968x24

Im trying to halt fingerprint tracking, whoever designed Firefox's privacy.resistFingerprinting rule makes fingerprinting even more prevalent.

With privacy.resistFingerprinting set to FALSE, my resolution is reported : 1920x1080x24, set to TRUE its 1920x968x24

1 in 6 browsers has resolution 1920x1080x24 1 in 6000 browsers has resolution 1920x968x24

Who in Firefox decided this config rule? and what is the logic behind it? Looks like intentional sabotage to make peoples browsers more trackable.

Whilst leaving resistFingerprinting set to TRUE, How can I force my resolution to the more generic 1920x1080x24?

Is there another setting in about:config I can change? if there isnt, where can I request this feature? Id rather not resort to an extention for something so small like this.

I don't want the list because I don't want to be distracted by these sites.

While they are safe-for-work, I'd rather "fun" sites didn't come up when I'm working with other people.

Hello,

I can't find anything about this. Delete website setting does not help.

Only resetting the whole profile would work.

But I don't want to do that.
