Gentle-persons,

I noticed Firefox support does not mention System 11? [version 21H2(OS Build22000.556)] Is this a problem?

I am running Express VPN. Is DNS-over-HTTPS a partial duplication of the VPN function?

Since I am running a VPN, does it make any difference if DNS-etc. is enabled or disabled? Potential problems?

I have been running with default, DHS-etc. enabled, without any problem, as far as I know.

Thank you for your help! Best Wishes, wAlanB

I've discovered 2 issues that I've just starting having for 1 and semi had for another, but just dealt with. I have a WIndows 11 laptop with Firefox 99.0.1 (64-bit) installed

I've had this issue for at least a week or 2 (that I've noticed), but my account information used to show when I look at the profile, but now it constantly says "Login to Firefox". Yet bookmarks are syncing over from my phone to my laptop.

Since last night, my bookmarks are not displaying in the Bookmark menu on my main screen, even thought it is set to "Always". Last night, I seen this happen. I did close FF down and open back up for them to display. But today, that is not working.

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, what is expected is seeing a notice of error, allowing me to refresh the page. However, sometimes the strange behaviours happen:

  • The refresh button is gray. I cannot refresh. I can only to re-type in my URL bar to force reload the page; or
  • The URL bar keeps blank or remains the former page. For example, I click the link on page A to page B, and page B is too slow, then I found that the URL keeps the URL of page A. I have to re-click the link of page B on page A; if I opens page B on a new page, then the URL keeps blank finally, and I have to re-click the link of page B as well.

The operation system is Windows 11. It also happens on Windows 10. It happens on Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition. The issue does not exist in Edge browers (in Edge, it displays connection failure and allows me to refresh).

The issue has been existing for years.

Firefox has been my default browser since 2004. I have never had a problem with closing a Firefox session with 8-12 open tabs and then re-opening Firefox later and having all the same tabs re-open with the new Firefox session. But now, every time I close and then reopen a Firefox session, it is like I have installed a version update: no tabs are saved. I am not a programmer, I am not interested in looking for obscure files and performing digital surgery. I just want my tabs to open like they have for the last 18 years. In Settings under General my Open Previous Windows And Tabs checkbox is checked. Don't see anything else that is germane. My browser is up to date--latest version.

Since Firefox 11 installed onto my PC, I get about 15 instances of Firefox running in Task Manager, and uploads onto a podcast website are impossibly slow so that I am timed out from podcast website. Short video upload onto FB takes an hour now via Firefox11. The "Performance" fix has no 1-8 option anymore, unchecking "Use recommended settings" does nothing. Any solutions to suggest?

Hello!

I was using this laptop for everything for a few years. Now I wanted to use this for work also. Previously all my bookmarks and logins were synced via a single email account. It was easy to use across all devices. Now since I want to use this for my work also, I decided to segregate my work stuff to a new windows account. So I created a new windows account. Obviously Firefox created a new profile and it was clean. No problems there.

So I wanted to use my original email for this new windows account and new firefox profile to sync across devices. So I created a new email, added it to my firefox account, made it the primary email then deleted my original email from that firefox account so that I can use it to sync firefox in my work user account.

But, Firefox is not allowing me to. There is no "signup" option for sync. Only "sign in". It continually asked me to sign in from my primary account, so I had to sign in from my primary account to make this post. Doesnt firefox offer 2 different "sync profiles" for the same device? Or Am I doing something wrong? Please help.

This is not the problem of "What should Firefox do with other files?" setting...

I make a test, I create a file "test.md" in the Nginx website folder, and I add "default_type text/markdown" to conf to force its content-type, pic here: https://vip2.loli.io/2022/05/12/v39nT8wu6yIlXeH.png

I am on Windows 11. I utilize Firefox only. I have always been able to obtain banking statements but now I am getting an error message: "Your session has timed out due to inactivity. To access your online statement please close this window and click the link found in Online Banking to reopen online statement." I contacted the bank and they had me clear cookies but it didn't help. They tried to get me to cookie settings, bit mine steps were not the same as theirs. The had me go to Chrome and their site worked perfectly. I prefer Firefox and would hate to have to make it my primary. Do you know why my banking is not working on Firefox? How can my cookie setting be OK for Chrome but not Firefox?
