In the past I was able to set the setting ``` browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll ``` to disable that a single click into the address bar selects the whole url. Is it possible to achieve this with the new QuantumBar somehow?

I would like to use HTTPS to access my router's web interface without having to bypass the "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" page.

Following my router's instructions I exported the certificate. I then accessed the Privacy & Security settings in Preferences, and under View Certificates I imported the router's certificate.

When opening the HTTPS web interface Firefox reports SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE.

Running 81.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1 as you can see in the uploaded screenshot images parts of the statistics are not easily seen because they're overwritten. I've uploaded three screenshots, one from Firefox, one from Google Chrome and one from Brave. I've tried adjusting the font size and have checked 'allow pages to chose their own fonts' to no avail.

How can I exclude urls ending with .lan from searching

In my home network there are several servers whose URLs end with ".lan". For example http://nas.lan or http://router.lan. When I want to connect to these machines with Firefox, I usually type router.lan in the address bar. But then Firefox starts searching for router.lan on google. Afterwards I am asked if I had wanted to access http://router.lan instead and when I click "Yes" Firefox takes me where I actually wanted to go. However, this can get quite annoying over time, and I wonder if it is possible to tell Firefox to go directly to the URL I enter whenever it is a string ending with ".lan" and avoid to search for it? Don't get me wrong, I do not want to disable the search bar completely as I am very used to type in searches into the address bar directly.

Earlier it was removed using style in userChrome.css file - " #PopupAutoCompleteRichResult richlistitem:first-of-type[actiontype="visiturl"] ", after update to 78.3 esr version this isn't working. I tried with deleted /home/.mozila folder (new profile) and with menu home ->top sites and search suggestions switched off (and also with and without userChrome.css file) so this is isn't the case. Thanks for help.

Visiting this site:

https://www.kulturkritiskforum.dk/

Firefox tells me that the certificate in invalid.

"...Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for www.kulturkritiskforum.dk. The certificate is only valid for kulturkritiskforum.dk.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN..."

Looking at certificate tells me it is valid, and so does:

https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=https://www.kulturkritiskforum.dk/

"...www.kulturkritiskforum.dk resolves to 18.197.157.167

Server Type: Apache

The certificate should be trusted by all major web browsers (all the correct intermediate certificates are installed)...."

And Chrome does not report any errors either.

Where is the actual problem/error?!

I perform Beta testing of GPS suites for several groups. My main interest is the CENTOS 8.2 operating system but I also service some Windows 10 laptops and two LINUX Mint20 machines. A GPS group in CANADA, https://webapp.geod.nrcan.gc.ca/geod/tools-outils/ppp.php operates an on-line processing service that I use and beta test for. They have a new engine about to be released but my main CEMTOS 8.2 machine is new and Fire fox is also going through updates.

The issue is that the I can uses Firefox and WINDOWS 10 okay on the old and new NRC-Canada applications. I can use old and new NRC-Canada software with Google Chrome satisfactorily but I cannot run either old or new NRC Canada applications with either LINUX MINT 20 firefox (Version 80.0 Firefox for Linux Mint-1.0) or the Extended Support Release 78.2 that is used for Mozilla Firerfox for CENTOS Linux redhat - 1.0

Appreciate help with this issue. With regards Peter (petermorgan@grapevine.net.au)

I am running Debian 10 Linux and recently upgraded Firefox ESR to version 78.3.0 . I noticed that whenever I launch Firefox that the mouse pointer "spins" for up to 40 seconds after launch. This does not seem to affect usability but is visually unpleasant. I have done the following things: 1. Start in Safe Mode: The spinning mouse pointer is no longer spinning after launch. 2. Disabled all plugins and extension and launch Firefox: The pointer keeps spinning. 3. Downloaded Firefox 80 and launched: Pointer keeps spinning. 4. Changed home page to a blank screen: Pointer keeps spinning. 5. Uninstalled Firefox ESR and re-installed: Pointer keeps spinning. 6. Checked for viruses, trojans, and other malware: none found.

Interestingly, if I launch Firefox ESR from a terminal (eg "firefox-esr &") the spinning mouse pointer is not present. HMMMM! This is the command that is used in the desktop icon: /usr/lib/firefox-esr/firefox-esr %u . Is there a problem with that command. I may modify that command and see what happens. Feedback would be appreciated.

Hello all and I hope everyone is safe in this pandemic world! In my Applications and in my profile directory, I have Mibbit as the default irc and it comes up everytime I reinstall firefox. I think that this is strange, mibbit is for old crooners isn't it? I would think that FF has advanced! I would like to not see it when I reinstall firefox, is this possible

I also have an installed plugin Shock wave Flash...did I install this or does it come from FF?

thank you,

Sry the message is German but I will translate it hopefully similar to the English output. I try to open this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCcjRePrSj4 Mind you other seem to work fine and I get this issue:

"Dein Browser erkennt zurzeit keines der verfügbaren Videoformate. Klicke hier, um unsere häufig gestellten Fragen zu HTML5-Videos aufzurufen."

Basically says "Your Browser does not recognize any available videoformat Click here, for FAQ around HTML5-Videos"

links to https://www.youtube.com/supported_browsers which literally shows Firefox as supported. I run Firefox on Ubuntu20.04 here and I have no clue what the issue could be. Chromium works. It works on Windows. I tried the safe mode without success. I just want to fix this before I run into this more frequently.

I am utterly clueless. I just today installed Firefox again on my Ubuntu machine. All issues I could find so far seem to be at least 2 years or older...

Hi,

I am trying to enable "Two-step Authentication" under the Manage Account page for my Firefox Account.

I've tried many authenticator / otp app on my android phone and my friend's android phone just to see, but none of them would work. It always says "Invalid two-step authentication code".

Has anyone been experiencing this? Does anyone have a lead on how to fix this?

Thank you!

I am unable to connect to the following URL https://lakmshaegov01.msha.gov/UserManagement/ChangePassword.aspx. All other browsers seem to work.

I ran an SSL Labs test and it confirms that all tested versions of Firefox fail. I would like to know if anyone can spot something that might allow me to connect by temporarily relaxing the security checks in Firefox for this site.

I use the save login info feature in Firefox. I have a saved login for a frequently used website. Firefox reliably fills out the username and password correctly for me. Recently it started asking me every time I log in to "Would you like to update this login?" prompt but with a bogus password. If I press "Update" it changes my password to this bogus password, so I have to press "Don't Update" every time I login just to keep my good password. If I do accidentally press "Update" I have to go to the "Saved Logins and Passwords" and manually fix my password for that website.

My question is, what would cause Firefox to think I have changed my password and give me this prompt when I have not?

And, by the way, the bogus password is always the word: "test" (my correct password is very strong and has over 20 characters).

How do I disable the blue flash when a tab finishes loading? I'd like to suggest an option in a future release that disables all these things.

I find it a real distraction, and it's really putting me off using firefox as a broswer. I really don't think this sort of eye candy is needed in order to browse the internet.
