You get the standard message of mark crosswalks, for example. When they are marked, they fade out and new pictures appear. When you finally get to no crosswalks shown and click verify, you start all over again. I am unable to get past ReCaptcha to get to the sight. Using Chrome is flawless for ReCaptcha. Add-ons are Badger, Bit Defender Anti-tracker, Malware Bytes, Bit Warden, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials and facebook container. Recaptcha had worked with all of these enabled in the recent past. Something must have changed.

How does Firefox and AWS S3 initiate an upload after a form post to S3

I'm trying to understand how AWS pulls a file from a client device after I post an upload request to AWS S3. HTML is asynchronous and I can't figure out how, after I post the file name and such, an upload is started.

I’m uploading images from a user’s device to a S3 bucket using a HTML form. Everything is working fine but I don’t understand how the S3 server can initiate an upload from a client browser after the form data (file name, signature, policy, etc.) has been posted to its URL. The image data is in a file on the client device and is not contained in the form, only the file name is there. Where in the process is the upload started and how does the S3 server tell the client browser to upload the image data?

Perhaps there’s more communication between the web server and browser during a post/response that I’m not aware of. Perhaps AWS and Firefox have a WebSocket open to perform the file upload?

Any insight would be appreciated.

Wish there was an email to contact support but I guess this is the only option.

Anyway, as the title states I have a random "invisible" window that I can't get rid of. I click the 'X' and nothing happens and when I close/reopen Firefox it's still there.

Anyone else had this or know of a way to fix it? (Preferably without having to reinstall)

I have a Bookmarklet that draws a red border on all elements in the web page.

` (function(){

   var e = document.querySelectorAll('*');
   var el = e.length;
   for (let i = 0; i < el; i++) {
           setTimeout(() => {
               e[i].style.border="1px solid red";
           }, 100);
   }

})(); `

This works fine on Chromium-based browser, but when I run this in Firefox it starts drawing borders and then all of the sudden a number gets written on the page. Everything is gone and a number appears.

I don't know why this happens, every other Bookmarklet works fine. It might be the script I wrote but I doubt it because it works completely okay on Chrome.

Running this snippet directly inside the console works fine.

I received a Firefox update message (refresh) last night. Without hesitation, I clicked. I was updated to Firefox 83.0 (32 bit). (FYI-I'm still using Windows 7.) Immediately after, I realized all of my logins and passwords were gone. A "Please enter you primary password to view logins and passwords" banner is at the top of the page. When you hit the login button, the banner disappears. (I'm already logged in.) I'm left with a "no synced logins found" message. I'm always signed into Firefox when I use a browser and save login information. Not to mention, the were there moments before I hit refresh.

Of course, I don't have passwords stored anywhere else and need to access a site sooner rather than later. (whomp, whomp) I've seen "logins.json" and "logins-backup.json" files mentioned in other posts. Is it safe to assume these magic files hold login/password information? If so, where do I upload?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Firefox ignores installed Fonts (OpenDyslexic) after update (Mac)

Hi,

after an update Firefox doesn't list Fonts I used to use on all websites.

Firefox: 83.0 MacOs 10.13.6

Usually the fonts are installed under /Users/myUser/Library/Fonts and FF respected those and I was able to choose them from the drop down list. I already tried to install the fonts system-wide (/Library/Fonts) but still no luck, which is unfortunate, because I am dyslexic and those fonts actually make a huge difference for me. FontBook lists them perfectly.

Regards, Michael

Edit: Fresh profile saved the day. Do not know how to delete the question, though.

Firefox said to refresh and so I refreshed. Now, the beautiful Firefox logo that appeared on my homepage, that I really enjoyed and was one of the main reasons I even chose Firefox, is just gone. Only a plain black screen remains. And yes, I tried the customized options and still no Firefox curled around the blue globe. What happened to it?

I've used FF for years. I recently tried Chrome and imported to Chrome from FF all my FF bookmarks and data. While using Chrome I've added book marks and more. I want to import back to FF from Chrome bookmarks that were added into Chrome. Is FF's import tool smart enough to filter out from the import all the copies that already exist in FF? Or what is the best method for importing everything?

Hi, Linux user here. So I've set up fallback fonts for Arabic script languages, both using system configuration files and the Firefox preferences. However, on websites, the Arabic text is not displayed in the font I have chosen, rather other fonts. It used to be so that all text using Arabic script used the font I had chosen, but now it's only true for when I type in the address bar, the window titles, etc, not for websites. How do I fix this?

For last few weeks whenever I open a new web browser in firefox the screen display now open slightly off screen with the top having moved up (and also a little to the right) making the scroll bar barely visible and tabs not visible. I can grab and move sometimes but it has become a consistent problem and I do not know why. Nothing has changed that I am aware of. How can this issue be fixed? Thank you

THIS keeps on happening at least 6 - 8 a year. ive cleared the cache off Firefox, rebooted it, got a now TESCO site and it is still the same. Yet Google fires up all right all the time. I have got 3 pc of a type and they all can get TESCO without any trouble. Ive been with you for 20yrs and am reluctant to change noW. Tesco just say your better of using Google than Firefox, which isn't much help. Yes they can get me on (sometimes) but they all ways say Google is the one really.

There must be something i can do?
