Hi,

I have an issue that about:config > browser.link.open_newwindow keeps setting itself to '2', so I have to repeatedly go in and reset it to '3'.

Not entirely sure what could've caused this, all I've been able to find is this here support article with another bloke having the samme issue, but what seemed to be only once.

I haven't done much in way of troubleshooting, as I'm not really sure how to go about doing that for a browser.

If I had to guess, it would be either something updating, or an extension yanking my chain, so here's the list of every extension I have installed:

1Password - Password Manager Allkeyshop - Compare Game Prices Bitwarden - Free Password Manager Buster: Captcha Solver for Humans Dark Reader Disable YouTube Cards Duplicate Tab Shortcut Fast Copy Links Honey NordVPN - A VPN Proxy Extension for Firefox Return YouTube Dislike Tab Reloader (page auto refresh) uBlock Origin

Use about:config to change identity.fxaccounts.enabled = true I can now see 'Sync' in Settings When I go to "Sign into Sync", after I enter my password, it hangs for 10 seconds, then says Working, then always just hangs there forever. If I login to Mozilla using a different tab, it signs in ok.

I have tried this after successfully changing the password, and after restarting firefox.

I am using the latest Firefox version.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

The topic says it all. How do I prevent Firefox from shifting my typing from the search field to the address bar?

I try to type a search into the field on my homepage but the cursor gets shunted up to the address bar and I can't find a setting turn it off. I would prefer my typing to stay where I place the cursor with a click rather than being shunted off somewhere else on the screen.

Hey there, so on this page there is a video element inside of a div. Both the div and video have a border-radius styled in css. This renders as expected on most browsers, but seems to have a potential issue on Firefox on Widows 10 where the video does not have the border-radius and shows up with square edges. Any thoughts on this? If you try other browsers or Firefox on anything besides Windows 10, it is round like expected.

It's exactly like this only adding a tag does not rectify the problem. I can add tags in the bookmarks library, but the 'tags' section does not show when I Ctrl+D. Any ideas? See screenshots here I would post them publicly but I'm not allowed to post publicly on imgur anymore after getting so many downvotes for questioning the sacred firefox's memory usage. Nice group of people (eyeroll).

Hi

I noticed some strange entries in the Windows Registry yesterday and am a bit wary what they are and where they came from. There all connected to firefox and it seems like an extension of some sort. I only have 3 extensions installed - NoScript, uBlock Origin and Firefox Multi-Account Containers.

I attached an image of what I've found. The entries all repeat but with different values for "installtabopened".

I don't recall installing anything new recently and apart from the Multi-Account Containers extension.

I'm quite paranoid and so scan and check often using different virus / malware tools. Always the worry I missed something though.

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks for the help beforehand.

I am on Firefox Developer Edition 120.0b9 (64-bit macOS). Using sites like whatismyip and whatismyipaddress, I am seeing that I have a VPN or Proxy enabled. When I use Chrome, I don't see this. I went through all the settings and turned off anything that could even remotely be related, and still get the same results. Does Firefox have a built in VPN that I am unaware of? Is there a way to turn it off?

Hello to everybody, My question: Opening local .mdb files (MS Access database) does no longer work in Firefox 120, but was ok in previous releases. The only choice is to save the file rather than onening it with MS access. Under Firefox settings/applications the file type .mdb does not appear. If I answer the question "What should Firefox do with other files?" with "Ask whether to open or save files" it has no effect at all. I expect to find an entry for .mdb files where to choose "always ask" as was the case earlier. Please help!

Hi--

I recently upgraded from Mojave to Sonoma 14.2, and Firefox 120.0.1.

In Mojave, fn-F12 used to invoke a "Dashboard" with applets like Dictionary and Thesaurus.

With Sonoma, fn-F12 causes the bottom part of Firefox's frontmost window to become a web developer tool, same as ⌥⌘I, instead.

Can I get my Dictionary and Thesaurus back?

For the past 3 months or so, anytime I try to login to Sony Playstation website I can't get past entering my email. After putting in my email and hitting next the website slows and firefox slow crashes. I have to force firefox to close. I have tried leaving a message to Playstation Twitter support. I've noticed their sign in page has change a few times recently so I wonder if it's an issue they caused. Either way it would be appreciated if it was looked into. Always feels like a lot of websites only care about chromium. By the way it works fine on edge or chrome. It also does not work with private browsing, so I don't think it's my extensions or cookies. I have also tried multiple computers.

Whenever I open Firefox, it opens every tab from my previous session. I don't want this - if I closed the window, it was because I wanted it closed, and I don't need any automated system to re-open everything on the off chance I was wrong. I believe the setting for this is on the General tab, but as you can see in the attached screenshot, it's definitely off, yet the feature won't go away. I also tried changing the config settings, as listed here:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1285172/firefox-always-restores-windows-and-tabs-after-reboot

, but it had no effect.

How do I stop Firefox opening these tabs without permission?

I have three Firefox-related browsers installed on a Linux Mint MATE system: Firefox, Nightly, and Pale Moon. I realize that Nightly is not intended for production use. That said, the top border is twice as tall as the one on Firefox and Pale Moon. This is a new system and I don't remember the border ever looking like this. The three images should illustrate the problem. Is there an about:config setting I should set?

what triggers the captive portal login... ? It's a great feature on a phone!

I am experiencing it on Linux 6.1.0-13-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Debian 6.1.55-1 (2023-09-29) x86_64 GNU/Linux, Firefox 115.1 (esr?) to 120.0.

Firefox is talking out through a Comcast-supplied router to the outside world and the captive portal attempt is being sent to one of localhost's aliases.

The firewall was setup as ufw disable; ufw reset; ufw default deny incoming; ufw default allow outgoing; ufw enable. The local apache is reporting attempts to access localhost's /canonical.html every 3 seconds. 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:10:55 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:10:58 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:11:01 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:11:04 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:11:07 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:11:10 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:11:13 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0"
