Can you tell me why gmail is recently (within the past 2 months) showing that Firefox has authorized access to my gmail account? It is sometimes showing up as accessing the account minutes before I even log in. It never did this before, but I use a security key to access my gmail account--could this be causing it? The security key mfr says there is no way it can be the key causing this and suggested contacting Firefox. I have reinstalled Firefox and the same thing happens. I have never given Firefox or any other application access to my gmail account. Thank you for any answers you can provide.

When I try to view my pictures... Firefox has started to ask, every time... "how do I want to view this JPG file.

I must choose, Firefox, Internet explorer and so forth. I choose Firefox and it opens.

BUT.....

How do I get this message to STOP.... every blasted time I click on my pictures.

There's some stuff in the "about:config" that someone changed from true to false... I think...

What do I change back... so this annoying pop up.... stops....

Hi,

I have an issue with color profiles that I'd like some help with. For my setup, I'm using a thinkpad with a wide gamut display running in fedora.

The issue is that an image exported from Darktable looks overly saturated in Firefox. I found I was able to fix this by specifying the color profile using the flag `gfx.color_management.display_profile`. However that profile is the OS default, and according to Firefox it should've been picked up when querying the OS.

How can I see what icc/color profile Firefox is using? Alternatively, what method is Firefox using to query the OS for its default profile? Thank you.

CPU/RAM Usage Way Too High

Firefox, according to its own Task Manager, shows the browser, not extensions, or particular tabs, using 9GBs of RAM, and 95-120% CPU Usage! This is causing everything to work, as if underwater, typing is slow, hesitates, etc, and opening new tabs sometimes doesn't even happen, and I have to try multiple times, etc. There is no reason Firefox should be using over 100% of my iMac's CPU. Meanwhile, nearly every single open tab is showing less than 1% CPU usage...

I really do want to use this browser, but this kind of memory sucking usage is making really difficult to continue doing.

I haven't downloaded anything recently (at least not that I know of) and for the past two days now every time I open up firefox, the search bar and images glitch white. You can't see what you're typing and when you go to images on google, all of it turns white. It happens to every website I go to, certain things turn white. Doesn't happen with Chrome, just Firefox. I've cleared the cache and data on it but that doesn't do anything. I've restarted my laptop and tried to make sure it wasn't my laptop that was the problem. I'm nervous to uninstall and reinstall cause I don't want to lose my passwords saved here.

I cannot register a credit card at: https://www.retailservicescommercial.citi.com/USCRSF/CMLSVC/index.html?siteId=PLCR_HOMEDEPOT#sec/signon

I was told eventually after clearing cookies and site data and refreshing the webpage that it doesn't work properly with Firefox and that I needed to use Google Chrome or Edge.

Can this be fixed or not?

I keep getting a popup about using an older version and creating a new profile. I already created a new profile a few days ago so I cannot keep creating new profiles every time firefox deploys a new version and would need to open firefox to update the browser version.

Hello, I am currently facing a problem. Yesterday, I passed a message from https://firefox-source-docs.mozilla.org/setup/linux_build.html#building ---The official documentation for firefox on Linux compiles and installs a Linux system with aarch64 architecture on an Ubuntu host with x86 architecture. In fact, I only modified a file called ". mozconfig" and added the following information: "ac-add-options -- target=aarch64-linux-gnu mk-add-options MOZ-OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/obj-aarch64-linux mk-add-options AUTOCLOBBER=1". After compiling for a while, I obtained a folder called "obj-aarch64-linux". I used the command "file /obj-aarch64-linux/dist/bin/firefox" to check the properties of the knowability file as follows: " firefox: ELF 64 bit LSB shared object, ARM aarch64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter/lib/ld Linux arch64. so. 1, for GNU/Linux 3.7.0, BuildID [md5/uuid]=6b1bede035b0d0bc9930d0d4d88c3c14, with debug_info, not stripped ”. I think I have completed cross compilation, so I compressed the "obj-aarch64-linux" folder on a USB drive and copied it to my aarch64 architecture development board. And when I tried to launch the browser on the development board using the "./obj-aarch64-linux/dist/bin/firefox" command, I received an error message saying "Couldn't load XPCOM". It is worth mentioning that firefox is installed by default on my development board, but I need to compile and install its source code, and local compilation cannot be achieved on my development board, so I made the above operation. So, I want to know how to solve this problem, or if there are any errors in my cross compilation process. Thank you for your help and look forward to your prompt reply.

I using an ASIS Latop model X756U running the Windows 10 Operating System. Firefox is my default browser.

I installed the Opt-Out Google Analytics Extension on 9 June 2024. The intent was identify which of my applications are using Google Analytics by testing them and seeing which ones were broken.

Having done that I removed the Opt-Out Google Analytics Extension from the Firefox Extension list.

Unfortunately the extension remains active and continues to disrupt my browsing experience.

How do I remove this extension permanently?

Whenever I try to download anything, it automatically fails. The problem just started recently and I don't know what could have caused it because I haven't done anything that could affect downloads to my knowledge. Things I've already tried are

  • Reinstalling firefox (including full uninstall via "Revo Uninstaller"
  • Updating firefox to the latest version (127)
  • Disabled all firewalls
  • Chose the save location
  • Disabled all parental controls in windows
  • Chose the "don't enable HTTPS mode" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1414064)
  • Tried firefox & windows safe mode (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1442742)
  • Chose a different save location inside my computer (a folder other than downloads)
  • Cleared download history
  • Ran a chkdsk on windows

The thing is that everthing else of firefox works (browsing the web, watching videos, etc), it's only the downloads. It's also not a computer problem I think because I can download on other browsers (such as chrome and pale moon). Any help asap is appreciated.

To whom it may concern, Hi, I haven't been able to access this website for a couple of weeks and have never had any problems opening it in the past. Have contacted the bus company and they do not have any issues at their end. This is the error message I still continue to receive and don't know how to correct:

Unable to connect An error occurred during a connection to www.premierillawarra.com.au. • The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. • If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection. • If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.

Hope to hear from you soon
