I ran into some problems recently as I usually clear out everything that was saved in my internet folder. I go to Tools/Options/Privacy/Security/Clear Data, well, this is about a week, but an INSISTENT 267 bits are REFUSING to go and be let free from my cached web content.

Additionally, I usually run an RKILL scan, a JRT scan, and a Malwarebytes AdwCleaner scan when I've finished logging off, for security reasons. The JRT scan flagged a "staged folder" in my FF profile, and had removed it. The folder had some sort of code in it.

Um, while we're at it, is FF still using IE as a "gateway"? I know at one time it was, but I seem to be also harangued by Searchscopes.

could someone help me out, please.

I'm using FF 76.01 and windows 10.

Thanks so much in advance,

MM.

P.S. also got a report that one of my blog tabs had been breached, with an ad from Avast - is this common?

Hello,

Firefox 76.0.1 is causing me problems...

For example if I call a PHP program to log out, I use the JavaScript command:

function Logout() {

 self.location = "Root.php?LogOff=Y"

}

No problem there, but when I want to log back in I use:

<form name='detail' method='Post' onsubmit='Root.php'> <input type='text' name='UserId' class='Full' style='border: 0;'> <input type='Password' name='Password' class='Full'>

(The class Full, just sets the width to 100% as this is in a table)

The the JavaScript is simply:

function LogIn() {

 document.detail.submit();

}

Seems simple enough, but the Root.PHP receives:

 LogOff -> Y
 UserId -> <name>
 Password -> <password>

Not what I was expecting!

The only other thing of note is that I have started using local.storage to save information, and this too passes information from previous calls.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Richard Gamester

Zendesk disabling right click for all open tabs in Firefox

When I use Zendesk (my company's chosen support ticket solution) it is disabling my ability to right click in any other open tab/window. When I close Zendesk, close Firefox, and reopen all the other tabs/sites besides Zendesk, my right click function is restored.

I have no clue what the Zendesk site is doing that is causing this, but I'm wondering if Firefox has a way for me to disable that for the Zendesk site, while still being able to use it's functionality.

Hello, we have an inline onClick event that begins with event.stopPropagation() and is followed by a call to our timeline.<method>; however, while onClick, our timeline is Document's Document.timeline, and it causes a JS error because it's looking for a method that does not exist.

I tried to move the function so as to affect namespace without success.

I welcome advise and otherwise, is this a bug in the WebAPI Document.timeline?

Hi everyone, sorry but I couldn't find this question answered anywhere else.

I am using a Surface Book 2, and when I am using it in tablet mode and I click a text field in firefox, the virtual keyboard pops up, but then is immediately pushed away, except for very rare occasions, where the firefox window gets stuck in the aspect ratio as shown in the attached photo, "making room" for the keyboard ^^

Hello,

Sometimes Firefox is having a wrong IPv6 in cache. Using the extension SixOrNot, I can see for rss.forumanalogue.fr the following IPv6 2001:41d0:fecf:8900:216:3eff:fe65:97bc, with the note "Cache". However, this IP corresponds to toot.forumanalogue.fr and the actual IPv6 for rss.forumanalogue.fr is 2001:41d0:fecf:8900:216:3eff:fef1:20a2. In order to temporary fix the issue, I perform a dig and it solves the issue for a while.

It is a rather new issue (few weeks).

What is going on?

Hi

I am using Firefox on Mac OS Sierra and I manage a number of websites using Joomla. I've had a problem for at least a year whereby Joomla admin keeps on quitting when I'm navigating around the system in Firefox.

I finally gave up using Firefox for this purpose and I always use Google Chrome instead, and I've never had this problem occur in Chrome. I thought it might be related to my specific install, but on a couple of occasions when I've tried to use it on my laptop, which has a pretty pristine installation of FF, the same thing has happened.

However more problems seem to be surfacing over time, principally: 1. I am frequently unable to click a link on a web page until I refresh the page 2. Problems completing online forms. For example I just tried to make a payment transfer in Paypal but was unable to type in the amount. When I logged in with Chrome instead, it worked fine.

Firefox has been my preferred browser for a very long time and I'd like to continue using it as my main browser, but unless I can eliminate these sorts of problems.

I wonder if anyone has experienced similar problems and if they have found a solution to them?

Many thanks Jennie

Hello,

After updating to 77.0.1 I've noticed that colors are way off on my Adobe rgb monitor. Colors are vivid as thought they where managed as srgb. I have gfx.color_management.mode  set to 1.

Is this a bug in this new Firefox version?

Thanks, Pere
