I know this is most likely a feature, but it's been annoying the hell out of me since I switched from Chrome and I don't know how to disable it. I have looked at multiple (~3) Reddit threads (two of which were archived) which gave me a total of 0 answers, I've looked at other forums, and I've found, get this, nothing. It's so annoying when for whatever reason, my music gets paused and then it's not at the volume I need it to be at, so I turn it up and then almost immediately turn it back down because of the audio fading. All I want is to know how to disable this, PLEASE.

Containers are useful for using multiple accounts/logins in one browser instance. However, Google Docs does not work correctly. Every time I open a Google Docs/Sheets/etc. file in one container, it loads in a new tab in another container. It does this even if I copy the link into a tab with the correct container. I need to keep my Google accounts separated: one is personal, the other is for work. I like Firefox, and use it to get away from Google in other ways. But I can't escape Google because of work and sharing files with certain people. I hope there is a fix for this. Thanks in advance.

Dear community,

User in our engineering dept would like to use Fiefox Developer Edition to develop custom applications. As an IT I need to check application regarding security and support levels. I already check your support options – community and commercial so I would like to send you some questions regarding data protection. Please enter yes or no.

1 The application must not automatically transfer any company proprietary data to external networks (like the Internet): 2 The application should not open listener ports on the client: 3 The application must work with the existing security settings, e.g. no changes in GPO-setting or Edge/Chrome-settings (e.g. they must work without changing ActiveX settings): 4 The application must not reduce the security level of the computer system (e.g. the application must not exchange DLL-s or other files with lower and unpatched versions): 5 The application must work without admin privileges:

I recently updated to 107.0 (64-bit) by the usual Linux update. On Nov 26 2022 I used Google Translate. I just discovered these directories: 2022-11-26 22:07:20 /media/sf_G_DRIVE/f_files 2022-11-26 21:30:46 /media/sf_G_DRIVE/g_files The files in them are all rwxrwx--- I looked at the images and recognized the sources as being from the Russian Federation archive that I visited at those times via automatic Russian-English translation by Google Translate.

Does anyone have an explanation how these directories and files were created?

Thanks -- Mark.

I am using Mozilla Firefox 64-bit with version 107.0 on Windows 10 21H2. I connect very often to HTTPS websites without a valid certificate. Often with certificates issued by themselves. Before it was always enough to say "I trust this website" once. Now the question comes again and again, whenever I connect. What could be the cause of this?

However the sync does not work, the new saved passwords on windows pc Firefox does. Ot get in sync with the Firefox from the iPhone.

Hi,

 I've just spent an annoyingly long time trying to do something that turned out to be really easy, it was just finding out what to do that made it seem hard.
 The issue of where search results open is completely ignored in the help pages, judging from the number of questions in Support on the issue, that appears to be something of an oversight. As does not displaying the date questions were posted, reading about what applies in an old verion of Ff may not do so in the current one, it didn't in my case.
 I wanted to know how to make the search results from Google on the search bar, open in a new tab, as opposed to the same tab, the current default setting. All it takes is changing the value of: browser.link.open_newwindow, from false to true in about:config.
 Simple to do, finding out that's what you have to do, isn't. 
 I thought I'd suggest that you might consider addressing this matter, I'm sure it would be welcomed by at least some users.
 Anyway, thank you for a great browser.

Remember search and form history. This setting always resets to false after the latest two FireFox updates and I need to enable it again.

After logging out and back in the setting is disabled again. I've removed all plugins and extensions I've added and the issue persists.

I've tried Places Database : Verify Integrity but the issue persists on very Restart or loggin. In the past I've even removed FireFox with a 3rd party uninstaller to remove all remnants of FF but, as a very long term user of FF (right from the early Win XP days), this issue pops up from time to time and it's really starting to become extremely annoying.

Apart from Refreshing FF or the total nuke and reinstall option, what else can be done to stop this issue?

Thanks.

Just recently anytime i try to connect to links on my browser that have "Ad" in front of the address eg. Ad.https://www.lowes.com/lowe's®/home I get this prompt

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at www.googleadservices.com. If you entered the right address, you can:

   Try again later
   Check your network connection
   Check that Firefox has permission to access the web (you might be connected but behind a firewall)

Any ideas as to why this is happening and how to fix it ?

Hello there!

I am a web developer and recently we built a website using wordpress. Specifically in this page https://jaotc.eu/jatc-participants/jatc-participants-jatc2/ there is an issue with the participants not showing/loading. I exclusively use Firefox for development and had no issues so far but this problem only exists in Firefox. I tried edge and chrome and the page works fine.

Maybe it has to do with some kind of compatibility with the wordpress theme or wordpress itself. If you would like to check it out and see if there is a general fix that has to be applied.

Thank you in advance!

My windows 11 laptop is set to reboot when updates are available, they happen when I've put the device to sleep. as a result all the tabs I had open are gone upon restart. Unfortunately, the "history->recently closed tabs" and "startup->settings->open previous windows and tabs" are greyed, I can't seem to find a way to fix this. Any ideas? Note, this is a new laptop, I used PCMover to transfer all my data/programs from an older laptop to this new machine, and that machine was windows 10 (if that would make any difference). Also, I do keep firefox on this machine up to date.
