Starting yesterday firefox, no recent updates etc, gives a 403 error for several large corporate sites and 404 page not found for most paypal payment pages. These sites/pages work fine with Chrome. There were no changes by by myself to my firefox installation, not any antivirus changes.

Within the last hour today everything is working properly. What is going on? jn

Firefox Kiosk does not appear when I log in but does when I start it manually from the GNOME x-terminal

I have Ubuntu 22.04 (on a Dell Optiplex 3000) with a minimal installation. I downloaded Firefox 125, removed the SNAP Firefox and installed this Firefox with no issue. I can run "firefox --kiosk" and Firefox runs in kiosk mode with no issue.

I have made some changes in the "about:config" part of Firefox. I have also made some changes to the Ubuntu keyboard shortcut list. There is only one user created on this system and I have configured Ubuntu to login this user automatically upon reboot.

However, if I setup Firefox --kiosk to start automatically (I use the gnome-session-properties application to achieve this) and then reboot, Firefox does run, but it does not appear on the screen. If I enter the "switch windows" keyboard shortcut (ALT-TAB), the Firefox kiosk appears.

So, is this something I can fix by changing the Firefox configuration, or is it an Ubuntu configuration change. If so, can anyone tell me what I should do, or have an idea how to debug this?

In Firefox the date format is set at „month, day, year“, but I need „day, month, year“.

I tried all the solutions, I even installed Firefox - English (British) version, but nothing changes.

Can you also implement an alternative, to be able to choose between the 2 options?

Thank you very much.

Dear All

We have recently found out that Firefox doesn't sync with Google My Business listings as when you search for “Saffery Geneva” on Firefox it brings up “Saffery Champness SA”, while on Google it correctly appears as Saffery (Suisse) SA as per attached print screen.

Any idea why Firefox is not syncing with Google with respect to this listing?

Many thanks.

Using Sync on new PC replacing an old PC

Some years ago I had to replace my PC and thought - Wonderful - just use sync to bring back all my tabs etc into the new PC...

The long and the short of it (in the past), was that Firefox decided that the new PC was the one to be synchronising source, and promptly removed all the apps/tabs etc. so sync was in line with the new PC - erasing all the app data. I understand there is no 'Master' sync account.

The question is, how can I stop Firefox initially migrating the Firefox app data in the wrong direction? I know that the app/tab data is currently still correct as my laptop still has all my apps etc. Is there some way to stop Firefox thinking the latest clean browser on the new PC has the correct (None) apps etc? Has the laptop to be logged-in and currently on-line before starting the new PC with Firefox? Is there a process to follow with a new 'un-synced' PC?

Sorry if I'm making things sound difficult, but don't want to loose everything which is currently correct and still these within sync data. It's maybe something that can't happen in these later versions of Firefox, but I want to be sure before logging in my new 'Blank' PC.

To check my icloud email, I log into icloud.com, enter my password, got through a two step authorization process and ask to stay signed in. I successfully access my email messages. When opening a message that has a hyperlink, I lose the iclolud connection. The link opens in a new browser window, but when i return to the email I am frequently signed out. Apple support does not know what the issue is; they suggested a different browser. This does not seem to happen with Microsoft Edge - and I don't want to use it.

Thanks for your help David Bartold; dwb0224@icloud.com

I have set up Passkeys for my google accounts. Now i have completely reinstalled my current pc and now there is no QR code showing when trying to log in.

I have another laptop where it will start completely normal. I can switch between a hardwarekey and another system (to show qr code)

I would appreciate help.

I'm currently on a very old version of Firefox simply because the new versions, each time I try the latest versions, seem to not have the function the old one has. Remembering the websites I put into the address bar. The version I am currently using did have a issue with shuffling the order of the sites based on 'use' but setting Firefox to Private mode kept the websites locked in order and did not make them shuffle if one was clicked more often than another. Is this something I can do on the current version because I tried and looked for a way to do this recently but I kept getting 'autofill' results from google when I just want to be in Private mode, have the websites I frequent be the only ones listed when I click the address bar and not have them shuffle or have any other website I'd type into the bar not add itself to the list. If this is or isn't possible let me know.

Homemade Home Page and Virtual Filing Cabinet

I made a private homepage years ago made up entirely of links to web-based AND local folders and files that are grouped into columns of categories like banking, medical, insurance, budget, etc. I keep it off-line on my desktop. I wrote the code so I could place an external link to a bank for example, next to a local link to the folder on my computer where I download statement pdfs from that bank and other bank files. The web page links displays: MY BANK Chkng/Debit Statements Credit Card Statements Bank Information The top link goes to the bank web page on line while the three lower links open folders on my computer where I save pdfs, txt, images, etc from the bank. Firefox opens the folders as "Index of file:///C:(folder path).

My personal home page is laid out with groupings like this for all sorts of information and associated web links: broker, vendor invoices, medical test, taxes, social security, health insurance, subscriptions etc. Today we get .pdf files with all sorts of information and no help organizing it for easy access. The Firefox browser has become the perfect tool for me. But I learned HTML coding years ago! Not so easy to do for others.

Today, many entities have on-line access that provides downloads like invoices, test results, payments, subscriptions, and much more that replace paper. Creating folders to hold these documents with their own local links on your web/local homepage makes sense to me.

While you can use "File" on Firefox to open a local folder or individual file, you cannot save it as a link. However, you can copy the path and transfer that to an a href=" line of link code in your homepage and build on that method. It's amazing how many types of files can be displayed in a browser that are locally stored. Even a link to a spreadsheet file will open that spreadsheets application. Having a varied list of links with quick access is worth the code-writing time. I wish there was an app to help anyone make their own custom folders and links to the contents in a "my homepage.html" . Is there a product idea in there for you folks?
