I have been accessing my Virgin media account for years from the Firefox browser. I like to access my email from Firefox. But now it won't work. However I can get into Virgin media straightforwardly from Microsoft Edge. I've tried clearing the cache (though I don't know if I did correctly) but it's made no difference to the Virgin problem.

Suppress console message when attempting to set cookie for an invalid domain

We write an SDK that needs to detect what subdomain a site is running on. For example to detect that app.foo.example.com.au and web.foo.example.com.au share example.com.au

In order to do that we check if we can set a cookie on `.au` that fails. Then `.com.au` also fails, then `example.com.au` and that succeeds

This is safe and fast and leaks no information not already available to any JS running in the page.

In most browsers this is fine. In Firefox it is also fine _except_ it logs a warning to the console that a cookie was rejected. This then causes users to open a support ticket with us in order to find out about "the error"

Is it possible for us to suppress this log?

In the last few months, when clicking on the file icon to download a PDF, the "save as" dialog box does not show up fully and I have to view all windows then click on any open window for the dialog box to appear.

I am on a Mac desktop, running MacOS Monterey 12.6.5 I just updated Firefox, to 120.0.1

I attached an image of what the screen looks like after I click the file icon (top right) to download a PDF. It only shows the "Format" part of the "save as" dialog box until I zoom out to view all the windows then have to click on any open window, then the full dialog box will allow me to choose a location to save and rename.

Any help if this a Firefox issue or a Mac issue?

After updating to v120 my Firefox started behaving strangely. With v119 I was able to fire up my Linux and Firefox and had immediate access to both Gmail and Calendar. Now I am requested to sign in every time, are offered a Shareable Calendar (for which I have no use) and get a notification in my cell phone reporting a new login. It would appear that the problem lies in syncing as WhatsApp Web is also requesting scanning its QR code every time too. This is most annoying. No settings were changed after the update. As a temporary solution I grabbed a v119 tar.gz from my wife's laptop and installed it in mine. Now all is behaving normally as before. Am I doing something wrong? Will appreciate any help you can provide.

I use to be able to work on one app/window and hover over multiple tabs to obtain brief details on the browser (tabs) as it sits behind the app/window I'm currently working on. Since about a week ago, this feature has gone away. Now I have to be on the browser to be able to hover over the tabs to obtain the info I need on the tabs. I do this to compare the order # that displays on the tabs for what I use it for. How do I get this feature back. I want to be able to hover over tabs to view the small details even when not currently on the browser itself. Please help.

whenever I am on Amazon.com the search window constantly fills with "solo con tu pareja," a movie I once watched. When searching for an item and even when trying to buy something the search window constantly fills with this phrase. This only happens using Firefox browser I've tried clearing cache, re-setting, etc. and while I got it to stop once, as soon as I re-started computer the problem came back.

My C drive needed replacement. I reinstalled Firefox and copied the profile from the old C to the new C. That did not work. I uninstalled and tried again with the report back that the files names were too long. The old disk is still in the computer with a new designation. I tried installing again to the old drive that has all the original data. That did not work. (I do have a saved copy of the profile) I'd like all my settings, but at least the bookmarks. Firefox doesn't seem to have importing from another Firefox, so I can do that. How do I import bookmarks from the Firefox on my old disk. Help would be appreciated. Thank you

I know this is likely to be a wont-fix resolution, but I'd like to confirm that.

So if a webserver has the extremely cautious content-security header:

content-security-policy default-src 'none';

Firefox will correctly not embed video from that same domain in web pages hosted by that domain.

Fine. Good. Totally right.

When the server sets the same flag on the media file itself, Firefox's media player won't play it in browser. Even if I directly open the URL as a user, signaling my user intent to accept the risks for the file, the default player Firefox creates uses the media file's content-security-policy FOR itself.

This means the media won't load, gives an unhelpful and incorrect error message about MIME types, and the only way to view it is to actively download it and view it in local media applications.

Now, given the risks of allowing exceptions in CSP, I will understand if the development team doesn't feel this is a safe change to make, and it's on website owners to prevent this, but I don't feel it's in keeping with the intent of CSP to prevent this case.
