I use Firefox for my office, and there are several URLs internal to my company that work with a single word.

For example: "xyz/12345" is the same as "http://xyz.company.com/12345" which opens the resource 12345.

This used to work absolutely fine until the latest update.

Current: 78.0.1 (64-bit) on MAC OS 10.15.5

Now, xyz/12345 searches google instead of navigating to the website. I do still need google search on the browser bar, as I use it frequently as well.

Having to type out http://xyz/12345 is an overhead that I would like to avoid.

Please suggest if there are any workarounds that could be used to get this working again.

Halifax use a card verification process "Halifax Secure" to verify payments made with one of their cards. Using Firefox on Linux, the pop-up window opened by to perform the verification dialogue hangs when invoked from some, but not all web sites. Turning off tracking protection for the invoking site does not solve the problem, but perhaps its redirecting to another site in the popup?

Any workaround, or means of pinning down the actual cause would be appreciated. For now I'm having to switch to Chromium every time I hit this problem.

Thanks.

Hello,

When I try to reload a webpage, I get the following message. This usually only happens after the computer has been asleep or the webpage has been inactive for a few hours. I've used this for several months in Firefox, without any issues until now. Can someone explain what is going on?


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to xxxxx.na90.content.force.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it? xxxxx.content.force.com (Salesforce) has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

I am having an issue logging into Office 365. When I click the "Sign In" button it just reloads the page. Doesn't allow me to enter credentials. This only happening on one PC in Firefox (Chrome, Edge work properly, and it works in Firefox on a different PC). I have tried a Firefox refresh, uninstalling/deleting Mozilla app data folder, and everything on the below linked pages. The issue does not resolve with a a private window. I have disabled/uninstalled all addons, and even turned off Firefox sync before trying another re-install. I have tried multiple office sites that I believe should resolve the sign in page, including office.com, portal.office.com, portal.microsoftline.com.

Tried this but it didn't help Also tried allowing site cookies as outlined here.

Hi there!

I would is there any way to have Firefox search bar history prioritize subdirectories? I typically only visit these subdirectory URLs and not the main one.

For example, when I go to reddit I would want to visit "https://www.reddit.com/r/all/", but Firefox puts "https://www.reddit.com/" at the top of the list when I type in "red".

The same happens for sites such as Discord. I would like "https://discordapp.com/app" to be the first in the list when I type, but "https://discordapp.com/".

I have tried to search on this forum and wasn't able to find anything. I have also added a bookmark to the subdirectories and bumped up "places.frecency.bookmarkVisitBonus" to 5000. However, the basic URL remains at the top of the suggestions.

Using firefox the image loading on manganelo fails consistently with new clean profiles on multiple devices, OS:s (even on phone), with different IP:s, while chrome always works.

Spoofing the user agent doesn't fix the issue.

Is there any way to fix this or is Firefox outright banned by the webmaster?

Hello; There has many issues with Twitter on Firefox. i) Sometimes it simply refuses to run; ii) Sometimes it takes very long minutes to load if at all; ii) Sometimes it quits working after a while and I need to stop Firefox and restart or even run it in Edge before being able to run it again on Firefox. Twitter is the only program that does that, as far as I can tell. Thanks for your help. Frenchy

I have this issue on several normal commercial sites. Access denied, you don't have permission...

Latest FF release 79.0. Not using VPN, but still happens with VPN/any server. Spectrum.com, Lowes.com to name a couple. The sites work with other browsers, but I simply don't trust any of them. Sometimes, Spectrum.com will load with scripts blocked, but as soon as I temp allow in noscript, the site breaks. I regularly clean out temp files, cookies, etc with a cleaner as well as not saving anything on exit. Caches and such should be sparkling clean.

Ideas? I really hate to purchase things using another browser, but this has persisted for months.

whenever i try to click my avatar thingy on YouTube it doesn't open the correct popup where i can find my channel it just shows a settings menu. and when i try to subscribe to someone it just says "your session has expired" and brings me to the creators YouTube page. it looks like im signed in, i can see my avatar, my subscriptions and even open my YouTube studio when navigating to my channel. so it seems like im signed in.

i also briefly had the option to sign-in whilst being able to see my subscriptions and that brought me to the page i send a screenshot off.

what ive tried: i have tied fixing Firefox(that thing that appears when trying to uninstall firefox), i have uninstalled and then reinstalled Firefox, i have tried both the nightly and beta builds of Firefox, i have tried running Firefox in safe mode and i have tried to run YouTube in a private window using a different YouTube account. all resulting in the same problem. i also tried using the new Microsoft edge and that seemed to work without problem.

help would be greatly appreciated. 'ps sorry for my bad English sentence structure and spelling, English isn't my first language and im dyslexic :)

Hi Guys, I updated to 79 & now Outlook.live.com will open just once after I start this w-7 laptop, if I close out the window and try again it just say new tab on the top left & search google in the address bar.

Now here is the interesting part, If I open any other short cut on the desktop, the browser will open a window & now outlook.live.com will now open and close and open again as long as I have another window open and connected to FF.

I am really stumped, I am 73 now and getting harder for me to figure these things out.

So far everything else is working fine. I do remember I did have a issue with O.L.L.C When I went from 40 something to 72 but I was able to get it working. I do not know what to do nest. Using W-7 64bit.

Thank You, Gary
