Sometime in the last week or so, the lastpass and onetab icons that normally reside just to the right of the URL display and to the left of the download icon and the history icon in the upper right of my FF browser disappeared. I think maybe it was the result of an update, but I wasn't paying close attention, then when I did notice it, couldn't find anything on the interweb about it.

They are both still installed since if I go to the onetab on the playstore it only shows uninstall and if I restart the computer, one of my open browser windows will restart with the onetab open as a new tab. If I close the tab, there is then no evidence apparent that it is still there. I have hovered my mouse over that area but nothing shows to be there.

Any ideas? BTW, if not apparent from the above, I am not very technical. Thanks

Hi,

I'm trying to disable the media popup in windows 10, which appears when you lower your volume or skip a song or anything (see added image). I have a brand new pc and on my old pc i was able to fix this easily by doing this: go to about:config and change this: set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled from true to false.

I did that now, with my new pc as well. But i just does not work, i restarted my browser and pc after changing it, i set it back to true and back to false again, it just will not work.

I googled this issue, but the only solution i find, is what i exactly the thing i described above, nothing else.

Firefox stopped loading facebook a few weeks back and I've been using Edge for FB. Today Firefox gives "SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE" for a large number of sites, including gmail and all the google sites, while still working for other sites like BBC News. I get the impression that Firefox is being somehow "targeted"... I've used it for years, going back to its predecessors in the 90s and have resisted changing browser so far!

I've had "HTTPS-only" turned on since it became available in a recent Firefox update, but its behavior seems very odd. I frequently get the error window that says HTTPS isn't available and gives me the option to cancel or proceed to a non-secure site. But most of the time, the page that opens when I click to proceed is indeed an https page.

Why is the Firefox module seeing these pages as non-https and not just opening them as they are?

In the age of COVID and a switch to more remote work the dependency on online meetings has increased. The company I work for uses Google Apps for Business and has been using Google Meet for a long time, and I've never had any problems with it not working. Recently though, when I join a meeting using Firefox, nobody can hear me and it appears Firefox is not able to access my microphone. Here's what I've done to test:

1. Reviewed Windows 10 settings to make sure microphone input slider is up. 2. Checked other browsers, running Google Meet using Chrome works fine. (Note: everything was working before and I attempted to use Chrome to try out changing backgrounds. It seems like this is when my problems with Firefox began) 3. I've tested my microphone using https://www.onlinemictest.com/ initially it didn't appear to work, but if I tap on my laptop screen near the microphone I see lines showing activity, but it won't pick up voice. Using this same tool in Chrome works as expected. 4. I tested using Private Mode - Same results. 5. I tried clearing the startup cache - same results. 6. I tried using Safe Mode - same results. 7. Refreshed Firefox (using Troubleshooting Information screen (Refresh Firefox...)

I'm at the end of my rope trying to figure out what's going on, and why it only appears to be Firefox that's having a problem. Other apps like Zoom, and recording video using just the webcam on the computer also works fine.

Any help in getting this figured out would be appreciated. I try not to use Chrome if I don't have to, but switching to Chrome so I can join web meetings is a real pain.

Hi, I just installed FireFox on my Early 2011 MacBook Pro, and every time a page loads up, the screen flashes and flickers with long horizontal bars. It's not just the browser bar, it's the entire screen, and it's making FireFox unusable on my laptop. I tried changing the hardware acceleration, which reduced the amount of flashing but did not stop it from happening. I also tried running FireFox in safe-mode but I am still having the same issue. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

I have an ssh tunnel that I am using to access an AWS ElasticSearch instance running in AWS, so that I can see Kibana in my browser. The tunnel is necessary because access is only allowed through a specific jump/gateway host that we have setup (this is very standard).

I used to be able to access this just fine with http://localhost:9200/_plugin/kibana But then ElasticSearch updated something to require that the 'HOST' header contain the original host, ie: search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com

Ok, no matter, I'll just add an entry to my hosts file: 127.0.0.1 search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com

Now, I can curl just fine, and using Chrome works just fine too: http://search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com:9200/_plugin/kibana

But every time I try to use Firefox, it replaces the http with https, which obviously doesn't work because the tunnel is to port 80.


Yes, I realize that *.amazonaws.com is owned by Amazon and they have an SSL cert.

I have read a similar ticket, here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1209387 The acceptable answer in that ticket seemed to be to use a different domain for local development, which shouldn't be too hard to do, but in my case this is not a usable answer.

I should be able to override Firefox and tell it not to change a URL that I have put into it, at least for specific sites.

I have a VMware VM used as a desktop by a team and they've reported that Firefox only shows a blank screen. It doesn't respond to anything, if I click the burger and click options then it doesn't even open a new tab. And I can't even access about:config.

However I've discovered that if I access the desktop via the VMware console then FF works perfectly fine, if I RDP onto the desktop and run FF I get the behavior as I've described.

Even weirder...is if I launch the browser in an RDP session and then seize the session via the VMware console then the behavior stays there until I relaunch it.

And vice versa if I launch the browser in the vmware console and then log in via RDP the browser works perfectly fine until I relaunch it!

What could be causing this?!

I've tried: Disabling hardware acceleration Cleanly uninstalling Reinstalling both the latest version and latest ESR Removing my profile All resulted in in the same blank FF.

No other VM running FF is experiencing this issue, and I'm the only one with rights to modify things.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

How do I setup WebVR in Firefox for Oculus Rift with a Radeon Graphics card?

Only info I can find about this is where they explain how to make it work for Oculus Rift with Nvidia's Graphics card. I can't find any mention of AMD's stuff. I have AMD RX 5700.

One of those setup instructions says to download and install Firefox, allow unknown sources in Oculus Home (which I have done). And then it says this: "For PCs (especially laptops) using Nvidia chipsets, there are several methods of enabling the discrete GPU. One way is from the NVIDIA Control Panel: Load 3D Settings > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings tab, and select Mozilla Firefox (firefox.exe) as the program to customize, and select “High-performance NVIDIA processor" as the preferred graphics processor. "

What if I have AMD Graphics? Am I unable to use a VR browser until I get an nvidia graphics card? Why is there no info about this anywhere????

First of all, my request concerns the "Free box TV" function or button or application of the Freebox server web interface running under OS version 4.2.7 with the default browser Firefox 84.0.2 (64bits) which allows to watch or record freebox TV channels on PC. Malfunction observed: After uninstalling "Adob flash player" dated January 13,2021 and upon the requested installation of VLC 3.0.12 with web plugin, Mozilla plugin and Active X plugin activated, it is impossible to open the "Free box TV" function or button or application. Indeed a double click on this button invariably leads to the edition of the message: "impossible to watch TV, you must install " flash player "plugin (which no longer exists since January 12,2021)or the VLC plugin which is a NPAPI one (not allowed by Firefox). Everything happens as if the installation of VLC had not been detected. I tried with 2 other browsers: microsoft Edge and Avast secure browser with an identical malfunction NB: the VLC player works nominally and allows to read the TV network stream from the freebox server. Questions: Q1: Do I have to install the extension or the module "Open in VLC media player" in the Firefox browser in order to open the "Freebox TV" application? Q2: Do I have to wait for a further Freebox development of this function which would be based on HTML5? with my thanks
