Hello. I'm using a brand-new installation of Firefox 78.0.1 on a freshly installed copy of Windows 10 Pro. The only way I can get Firefox to display any notifications is by having alerts.useSystemBackend set to true. While this is set to false, notifications will not work. If I use this site to test them, it just says, 'queued for display', followed immediately by 'closed'. I've also tried creating a new profile and testing it again with no success. All sites were granted notification permissions in each case.

Thanks for any help.

I use Firefox for my office, and there are several URLs internal to my company that work with a single word.

For example: "xyz/12345" is the same as "http://xyz.company.com/12345" which opens the resource 12345.

This used to work absolutely fine until the latest update.

Current: 78.0.1 (64-bit) on MAC OS 10.15.5

Now, xyz/12345 searches google instead of navigating to the website. I do still need google search on the browser bar, as I use it frequently as well.

Having to type out http://xyz/12345 is an overhead that I would like to avoid.

Please suggest if there are any workarounds that could be used to get this working again.

Hello,

eg. at these websites: https://www.zetor-forum.de or https://www.hobby-gartenteich.de

I and also all other FireFox using members can't logout from and when we load the site, we mostly see older content instead of the new one. The behavoir come up wit FireFox v77 and we can reproduce at the above named sites eg.

The FF Dev-consol gives me no hint what kind of problem FF with this site has.

Other Browsers, like Chrome or Edge render the site with actual content and login/logout is without trouble possible.

So I come to my question: What can be the problem, that FF not render the newest content at this sites and let me not logout eg? I have no right idea, what we can do, that FF will be happy with our sites as bevor v77. What can I do to found the problem and what to fix it?

Both sites uses Xenforo 1.5.28 (latest), PHP 7.3.x, MariaDB 10.x, Redis Cache server side

I hope anybody can give me a hint, so I can do my best to solve it.

Best regards, Joachim

Hey, I'm using Firefox as my PDF reader and I need to do a lot of searching throughout documents. When I use CTRL+F to search for and highlight text, the found text is highlighted in a very light green color that does not contrast well with the white background of the page. Is there a way to manually change this color to make it contrast better so it is more noticeable? Thanks!

Hello, I am trying to make a paypal purchase and firefox will not load paypal.

I have tried in safe mode, I have tried clearing the cache

If I clear cache and use safemode it will make it to the login page then be forwarded to a blank page after I login. ...After I have logged in even the paypal main page (https://www.paypal.com) will just load blank.

Thanks.

Hello All,

My browser does not seem to want to fill the screen on startup.

I do not want it to go into "full screen" mode, just to fill the whole screen so I do not have to drag the edges every time. The browser does not seem to remember that it was expanded to fill the whole screen when it closed down.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Screenshot attached.

Regards, Harrison

After using messenger with no problems for years, yesterday I tried to make calls (audio/video) in messenger and keep getting an error message that my "brower" doen't support them now. I have the latest verion of Firefox 78.02. Anyone else experiencing this?

It asks me to use either Firefox (which I obviously have, or chrome).

I switched to chrome and got the same error message when trying to make a call as well.

Thanks for any help.

I noticed there is something in the Firefox browser now named Lockwise which allows anyone using my computer to see all my passwords. This seems to be a major problem when it is supposed to be concerned with security. If my laptop is stolen they will have access to all my passwords now???? This does not look like a security feature to me. How do I get rid of or disable this function?

Thx

Hi everyone, i have a website where i have to delete a certain element in order for the website to display correctly. I am doing this by right-clicking on the element, selecting "Inspect Element" and then i simply click delete node and close the object browser. Since i visit that website regularly i wonder if there is any way to make the object browser to remember that i want that element to be deleted on every visit to this website? Or do i need an Addon for that?

Thank you in advance and best regards!
