OS Version: NAME="Fedora Linux" VERSION="36 (Workstation Edition)" Firefox Version: Version 104.0.1 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Fedora fedora - 1.0

Issue: I have "Ctrl+Tab cycles through tabs in recently used order" enabled. When I press(and hold) Ctrl+Tab I don't see the thumbnails of the tabs I'm cycling through.

When I create a new profile (on about:profiles) sometimes I get Thumbnails on Ctrl+Tab, sometimes not. Removing all Addons doesn't have an effect.

Does someone know how I could go about debugging this issue?

I'm trying to just close and restart firefox from some bash scripts on Linux so that I can manage a few items from various hotkeys.

I'm trying to close an existing Firefox process "cleanly", and am running into issues with how to kill the Firefox process and have it restart without showing the "restore session" page. If I update about:config and override "browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash" to false, then I get the behavior I'm looking for, but I'd rather not have to override this.

I've tried multiple kill signals from the `kill` command, including HUP, STOP, QUIT, TERM, INT, however all of them seem to trigger the same behavior.

So is there a way to cleanly close (or restart) Firefox from the terminal?

When you're waiting for the website to respond, there is a very small black blob that moves backwards and forwards from left to right in the firefox browser Tab of the window you are using. It is too small especially if there are a dozen Tabs, or more.. Is there any way/Add-On to make this larger/more obvious please?

Hi Firefox,

I'm a native speaker of Hindi and wanted to volunteer at Mozilla's to translate/localize terms in Hindi.

I tried to access the two links given on your contributor page, but those two urls give 404 not found error messages. Here're the links I'm trying to open to join the contributor's group.

1. Any new contributor wants to join Hindi, can join mailing lists of [https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-l10n-hi Hindi Mailing List] and also join Mozilla L10N

How do I volunteer at Mozilla to do translation work in Hindi?

Thanks for your time.

Hey Firefox Team,

Earlier this evening, I was doing a little security update and changing the password to my Twitter and email addresses. Standard stuff. Firefox suggested a secure password and I agreed; Firefox came up with a good one. The key icon in the URL bar showed a little message that said it had saved the passwords. Hooray.

It turns out, it didn't update my passwords at all and now I am locked out of my accounts. Firefox hasn't saved these new passwords it came up with and I'm stuck with my old ones which, obviously, don't work.

What can I do?

Hello,

When I open a email which contains an url like https://link.domain.com using sendgrid.com's service, I get a SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN error.

An example of such an url is https://link.intersport.fi. The domain starting with link is a service provided by sendgrid.com to be used in email advertising.

The issue is not specific to intersport.fi but to any domain using sendgrid's link service.

The strange thing is that Chrome and Edge are totally happy with link.domain.extension.

What is your take on this?

Best Regards, Thomas

(Mon. 9-5-22 @ 8:13pm CST) How do I Recover "Lost" or "Missing" Log-In's & Passwords that for years have been In the Password Manager inside Mozilla Firefox?? I REALLY NEED HELP ON THIS PLEASE!! Hello, I have no idea where almost 270 website / user names & passwords have Gone?? I used to have Over 300 in my Firefox/Mozilla Options/Passwords File, (Password Manager) up until 2 or 3 weeks ago.. Now, I have Only 33 user names/Passwords when I opened it up tonight.. The reason I went to FIND a user name & password for it, is Because I have (2) Programs that are NOT OPENING UP now, And (1) Program happens to be my ( WEBROOT Internet Security & Anti-Virus Software from Best Buy / Geek Squad..) This Webroot Loads Automatically every time I Boot my Computer, and Runs in the Background of my Windows 10 64-Bit operating System.. But, just about 2 weeks ago, the Webroot Dashboard that "Normally Opens" up in "Green", Now Opens up in "RED" and wants me to Provide my "Membership ID", and The "Product Key" to it.. And this is a Paid Subscription thru Best Buy / Geek Squad Every Year, ( and Does Not Expire until This coming November of 2022..) So, Now I Know why this Webroot is Not Loading, and is asking me for my "Information".. Because I am MISSING This Information, And 269 Other Logins, & Passwords from Mozilla Firefox.. Could SOMEONE? Please, Advise me as to "WHERE" the "Encrypted" (User names & Passwords) are on my Hard drive?? And How do I "IMPORT" These "FILES" back into Firefox's (Password Manager) ?? Thank You, DEXTER in Texas..

Firefox forces HTTPS for web sites, even if this option is disabled in settings

Installed version: 104.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10, current as of this instant date.

Ref: This question was asked previously at [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1341115] about a year ago with no replies or answers.

Issue: I am attempting to access a flight-sim site, http://forum.ivao.aero, and due to the way the site is set up, they refuse to accept https connections. (I know, stupid, but don't bark at me about it. . .)

My problem is that, in settings, I have the preference for enforcing https turned off - yet no matter what I try, it ALWAYS converts it to a HTTPS request.

Trying the same site in Chrome works as expected - though Chrome does get a bit fussy - however, once you reassure it that you haven't lost your mind, it lets you view the site. . . (wink!)

Firefox, on the other hand absolutely REFUSES to allow HTTP requests, which is fatal. Not only for this, but for certain things I do with in-house robotics experiments that are http by default and won't change any time soon.

How do I fix this? Is it even POSSIBLE to fix, or is Mozilla going to assume that everyone is using https and everyone else can go pound sand?

Hello, all:

I thought I could try posting here about finding a reliable tab management extension for Firefox or a program so I can sync the open pinned tabs I have on my laptops and phone with each other so I can be sure to refer to certain tabs when I'm not home or something outside of trying different extensions to see if it'll be done. That way, I can know I can be able to refer to what I need to find rather than having to go home to look on my laptop if I'm not home or something. Thank you in advance if you reply to this.

I have used Firefox since its inception. Within the past 6 months, certain websites that used to work properly simply will not load anymore. For example: https://enlighten.enphaseenergy.com/web/3419721/today/graph/hours?v=3.4.0 . I have tried refreshing, removing and restoring, creating a new, blank profile from scratch, starting in safe mode, and other browsers. In this particular instance, Chrome, Edge, and even my old Internet Explorer work just fine, with no alterations or modifications, as well as with my current extensions (Roboform). So does an old version of Firefox (76.0.1). However, current versions of Firefox simply show "Connecting to Gateway", and then time out. I have even set Firefox to refresh the page on EACH access, to no avail...

The ONLY thing that works with the new versions of Firefox is to delete the Cache, and on the next load of Firefox, these and other sites will work. However, returning to the site a second time results in the same error. This makes no sense to me, since forcing Firefox to reload the page on entry, in my mind, should be the same as clearing the cache for the offending page. I have no idea whether the problem is with the website coding, or with the Firefox coding. In this particular case, the Enlighten website states that recent versions of Firefox ARE supported, along with Edge and Chrome. But the fact is, only Edge and Chrome work flawlessly with no issues.

I am open to any and all suggestions, because I have been working with the same errors across several websites, and Firefox is the only browser that has problems with the site.
