Dear all,

I've installed an add-on, "Telephone Number Detection" by "CTI-Telephony", that enables to detect phone numbers on any web page and to trigger a phone app ( ex : Aircall) using the phone numbers detected/clicked.

It works but Firefox always asks me to authorize the use of the phone app (Aircall) so as to open the link produced when clicking on the phone number "Allow this site to open the callto link with Aircall.exe?"

This step is useless since I've already authorized the opening via this application.

Do you any idea oh what options to tag/un-tag so as to avoid this step ?

Best regards,

ET

So I live in India and out here there is a c**t of an ISP called BSNL that provides broadband and landline service. When I browse, I tend to open a lot of Firefox tabs via Google, and some of them could be HTTP tabs. Often I could be reading a bunch of tutorials like this one: http://denethor.wlu.ca/ltspice/ which is quite long and involved. Which means that sometimes I shutdown my browser without having finished with this website/tutorial.

When I restart my browser, I hover over the Tab or scroll them to get back to what I was doing and this is where these unmitigated BSNL b@st@rds come into the picture.

They redirect all HTTP requests to https://fuptopup.bsnl.co.in/dailyFupPlanRedirection.do and I lose my Tab! I can firewall that IP by dropping its packets and that slows things down giving me enough time to hit Esc and cancel what's going on.. or what I usually do is log everything to /tmp and then poke around in log to find my URL by grepping for http://

It's still very annoying - what do I do? I would like to murder the person responsible very very slowly or at least roast their cursed toes over hot coals but besides wishful thinking - what do I do?

(they also do other village idiot type things like redirect HTTP to ads and spyware but I've not noticed that recently, after I complained to the Swedish government, about the Swedish server hosting these gross turds)

A Firefox solution would be ideal since this affects security - the random redirecting of HTTP to places unknown by unscrupulous ISPs run by the local village idiot/DSLAM. (please forgive the rude words but I'm hoping that name sticks in peoples minds - BSNL - Bharath Sanchar Nigam Limited - may the world, punitively, never hire these rotten scumbags)

I have been using Firefox and several addons for years. One of the addons that I have been using for a very long time is "Group Seed Dial". I'm extremely happy with it.

This problem began just a few days ago. I leave my computer on all the time and very often (most often) I will walk away from it for the night with a couple of browser windows open and several tabs open in each. A few days ago I simply came back to my computer that morning and clicked on the "+" to open a new tab - this always opens into my Group Speed Dial page. But that did not happen it just opened to my "Home" page (Google search). I tried a different window and the same thing happened, it seemed my Group Speed Dial was gone. I wend to >Tools >Addons and I saw the Group Speed dial in the "disabled" section. So I simply clicked the toggle button to "enable" it and - the speed dial was back just like before. I thought there must have been some glitch and just went on with my day. The problem is, the next day it happened again, and then today it happened again.

I am using Firefox 84.0.1 (64-bit). I am on Windows 10. During the time this has been happening, I have not shut down all browsers, no updates were announced or shown to have happened. I have not shut off my computer, there have been no windows updates.

Does anyone know why this is happening? I'm worried there is a bug or a virus causing this. I use Windows Defender and Malware Bytes Premium.

Thank you.

Almost since the day I first updated to Catalina I have had an intermittent problem with Firefox. The browser hangs, seemingly at random, multiple times per day, with the page either freezing or appearing to be trying to open a page. When this happens, sometimes the page can be closed, and sometimes not, but in all cases the menu bar is inoperable and moving the cursor to it causes a spinning color wheel to be displayed. Firefox can then be closed only by using Force Quit. Subsequently, attempting to reopen Firefox cause the icon on the dock to bounce but the program never finishes opening. The only way to interrupt this process is to again use Force Quit. After Firefox has hung, all other programs continue to work normally, but the only way to reopen the browser is to restart the computer. When Restart is chosen after a hang, the computer takes much longer to shut down than under normal circumstances, and when it restarts it generates an error message that the computer was shut down due to a problem.

The problem occurs in cycles, with the program hanging several to many times each day for several days to as long as two weeks, then it appears to resolve itself and doesn't occur for a week to as long as six weeks before it returns. The problem has continued through several updates of Firefox and of Catalina. During times when it was occurring, I have tried everything suggested for fixing hangs, including disabling extensions, deleting Session Restore files, creating a new Places database, a clean install of Firefox, and reloading Catalina. Nothing has helped.

Surely I am not the only one experiencing this problem, but I can find no reference to it. I would be very grateful if someone could offer any insight.

Thanks.

A few weeks ago a bought a sound card for my home studio. I was quite happy until I realized that all the soundcloud 's tracks lost their stereo. Here's the setups I tried:

I'm running Firefox 84.0.2 on Fedora 33. I have just created a couple of profiles via the profile manager, but attempting to start with a specific profile from the command line, like this:

 firefox --profile default

Causes Firefox to complain:

 Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

Even though:

  • A profile named default exists and is visible in the profile manager.
  • An entry for the default profile exists in ~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.ini:

[Profile1] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=8hiuv29u.default

  • The named directory exists:

$ ls -ld ~/.mozilla/firefox/8hiuv29u.default drwx------ 11 lars lars 4096 Jan 12 16:13 /home/lars/.mozilla/firefox/8hiuv29u.default

  • If I start the profile manager, select the "default" profile, and then "Start Firefox", it opens the browser as expected.

This is happening with multiple profiles; not just the default profile. These are all profiles that were just created.

I do not know where to post feedback and the feedback link is down so if someone can get this to the Firefox development team, it would be a great help:

1. Feedback is important and to give it a user has to search this website and come here to write it. The help should be in the drop-down menu or menu items where a user can write to development team. This is in Google Chrome. Can be implemented in Firefox. 2. I never understood why title bar and the address bar are separate. They can be merged. The mass horizontal space in title bar is unused forever. Please implement this. 3. The auto-hide/intel-hide of address-bar and title-bar option is not available to the user. Please make it available. This is available for bookmark though and it is working well. 4. If given a chance the user will not want to see the address in the address bar. Most users have utility of copying the address, not much. Can the address be hidden when user do not want to see it? 5. Modern phones have camera not on the top-left edge nowadays, but in top-center. Similarly the tab should open in the center. The minimum development team could do is to provide user with this option that he only can move it to center. Very good improvement this would be. 6. Word-wise feature of Amazon Kindle + Hard-word meaning show on mouse hover features requested. Few extensions available which are not very good in quality and these features should be default. This will save users time to search for new words, will reduce internet traffic. 7. When I save a dark theme in Nightly using customize option. It stays for few seconds and then reverts back to white theme. This could be a bug. Please investigate it. Thanks.

I have been invited to renew the Norton protection on my desktop computer in 5 days. The increase in the cost is approximately 20% on last year's subscription with the advice that it will treble at the following renewal. This has made me wonder whether, or to what degree, the protection provided by Norton Lifelock may be unnecessary due to my using Firefox for my browsing.

I have Ublock, Enhancer For Youtube, Facebook Container & Ghoshtery icons on my toolbar.

I am not very computer literate, so if anyone is able to suggest an alternative way of protecting my computer, please take this into consideration.

I accept that due to my limited knowledge of computers some people may on balance think that it is best that I renew with Norton rather than risk compromising my computer security due to my lack of computer expertise - and if that is what people think it would still be good to receive the reassurance that I am probably already using the best product for me.

Last year I let the subsription lapse rather than pay at the invited amount that I think was over £60. A few days later I received another email inviting me to subscribe at circa £20.

Thank you.

I run Firefox in portable mode in Windows 10. It works wonderfully. However, when i click on web links outside of FF, it loads Chrome. So in FF I go to options and set it as a default. In "default apps" it shows up there. But Because I am running FF portable, by setting it as default browser, it creates a new profile on c:\users\username . And loads a whole new instance of FF. That is not what I would like to happen.

Is there a way to set it up so that when I click a link in an email, it will load the FF from the portable instance? using the profile within the portable directory. Usually I always have FF open. It is never closed.
