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.

Colors are distorted in MP4 video as you can see in the attached screenshot. The distorted colors impact video on many sites including yourlearning.ibm.com, webex.com, twitter.com, mlb.com, etc. They do not impact youtube.com which displays video correctly. My Firefox version is 68.10.0esr (64-bit) and my OS is RHEL 7.8, kernel version 3.10.0-1127.13.1.el7.x86_64, Gnome Version 3.28.2

I have tried running in safe mode but the issue persists.

How do get Firefox to display MP4 video with correct colors?

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.

When attempting to access https://www.muasd.org which is a school district website I get the warning message with the reason stated above as SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER. This happens on version 79 also on the enterprise quantum version as well as android firefox app. We took a brand new computer out of the box installed firefox while connected to a phone hotspot and received the same error. All other browsers work fine. Any help would be appreciated.

How do I get onto the server? to rectify this or gain access to TV guides? Seems strange to be locked out to acess TV information?

Hi,

I'm the owner of the website www.joyce-mag.com and I have an issue with icons not appearing in the menu (arrows + social media icons) on my device (2019 MacBook Pro with the latest version of Firefox), but appearing on other devices.

So why the same browser version is displaying the fontawesome icons differently on different devices??? I feel like I have an issue to fix but the developer of the theme and my own developer who is also my host provider both can't find any issue.

Thank you, Lauren

   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.

Hello, For some time I have not been able to log into my account on the "Which" website using the Firefox browser. The address is www.which.co.uk/login and the request simply hangs and nothing happens. I am able to open the Which site by using www.which.co.uk but when I click on the login box it just hangs in the same way as typing in the full addeess www.which.co.uk/login. This has been going on for months and I have asked Which to sort it out but have had no luck. They simply say use another browser but that is not a real solution. I am able to log in using several other browsers but not Firefox. Hoping someone can help. Thanks David

Hi, firefox browser (using it on a macbook, the version is up to date) will no longer load the css/js on a site that i use frequently. It's not a problem on the side of the site, as it works fine on chrome and safari (and even on my mobile ios firefox browser). After troubleshooting a bit (deleting and redownloading the browser/removing all addons/ensuring that the page style isn't set to 'no style'/deleting the cache/adding it as an exception to enhanced tracking protection/enabling 'security.enterprise_roots.enabled to true in advanced configuration), and exploring help articles of a similar nature, I've determined that it most likely won't load the stylesheet because the site has an unsecured connection. This is a site that I use frequently and I trust enough to continue using with an unsecure connection, but I've been unable to get Firefox to recognize it as an exception in a way that will allow me to use the site in its full capacity.
