Firefox Developer v80 Mac OS failes to render new css even after cache flush and reload

I've been using Firefox Developer version for some time now on Mac OS and have never had a problem like this before.

However, since version 80, Firefox Developer fails to render the new css after a change and save has been made to the style sheet even after multiple browser refreshes. Caching on the server end has been disabled so I'm really trying to find a solution to this issue as it has forced me to find alternative browsers to develop with like Safari since Firefox Developer has become unusable for me.

I've gone through and performed manual cache flushes on the browser from the settings/preferences panel. On occasion, by quitting Firefox Developer edition and relaunching it will then render the new changes but only after a quit and relaunch and sometimes using a private window as well. This is happening with multiple hosting services so it's not any particular provider.

This is most annoying. I've even reset Firefox Developer a number of times to default settings without any extensions etc. and still the problem exists.

Earlier version of Firefox Developer don't seem to be exhibiting this problem. I'm not running any proxy's or special configurations with the settings either.

Any assistance to finding a workaround would be greatly appreciated or I'm going to have to stop using Firefox Developer version altogether.

Thank you,

Why does Firefox feed so much data to Google?

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

Halifax use a card verification process "Halifax Secure" to verify payments made with one of their cards. Using Firefox on Linux, the pop-up window opened by to perform the verification dialogue hangs when invoked from some, but not all web sites. Turning off tracking protection for the invoking site does not solve the problem, but perhaps its redirecting to another site in the popup?

Any workaround, or means of pinning down the actual cause would be appreciated. For now I'm having to switch to Chromium every time I hit this problem.

Thanks.

Hello

Is it somehow possible to lock my settings by a password or to make a login necessary to open the settings. I run my firefox on different devices and everyone who uses it can easely see all the saved password, change all my settings and so on. I don't want to log off every time I quit the browser.

Thank you for your quick response.

Greetings

Chris

Well, I don't know what changed! My antivir tells me that I got a tracking cookie but they want money to delete it. So I searched and found an add on called "NoScript" who could maybe do the job for me.

But my problem is: I am (always) online with Firefox. If I want to download/install ANY add on, the site always tells me "Only in Firefox - Download and install now". As I am online with the newest version (79.0) , I absolutely don't understand this message. Okay, so I gave it a chance, hit the button and "installed" what's allready on my computer. But after that there is no change! If I want the add on, I still get the same message: "Only in Firefox - Download and install now"

What can you do for me or is there (really?) anything I have to change to be able to install AddOns again?


Nun, ich weiß nicht, was sich geändert hat! Mein Antivirus sagt mir, ich hätte einen Tracking Cookie, aber die wollen Geld für die Löschung. Also have ich gesucht und ein AddOn namens "NoScript" gefunden, das diesen Job möglicherweise erledigen kann.

Doch habe ich ein Problem: Ich bin (immer) mit Firefox online. Und wenn ich IRGENDEIN AddOn herunterladen/installieren will, erklärt mir die Seite stets "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter". Da ich immer mit der neuesten Version (79.0) online bin, kann ich diese Nachricht nicht absolut nicht verstehen. Okay, also versuchte ich es einmal, klickte den Button und "installierte", was bereits auf meinem Computer ist. Doch danach hat sich nichts geändert! Wenn ich das AddOn will, bekomme ich nach wie vor die selbe Nachricht: "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter"

Was könnt Ihr für mich tun oder gibt es da (tatsächlich?) etwas, das ich ändern muß, um wieder AddOns installieren zu können?

I clicked an .exe to download a zoom meeting list. It installed malware. I'm unable to go to add-on's, options, etc - it opens a blank page. Redirects webpages to all sorts of stuff like porn and IDK what. How do I identify and remove?

What can I provide to assist beyond this: seems the "root" URL is spontaneousguarded.com

Using Chrome, as I do not want to enter my info to ask for help on a compromised Firefox browser. Searching on Chrome doesn't bring anything up that can help an (NON-IT) person. I'm also unable to allow troubleshooting information using Chrome. Thank you!

Fairly regular crash, unable to restart (even in safe-mode) post-crash without reboot

I'm experiencing relatively frequent crashes of Firefox under Ubuntu Focal (approximately daily). The rather frustrating aspect is that, after the crash, Firefox immediately crashes when attempting to restart (either from the crash reporter dialog, or separately after quitting and attempting to launch it again). Re-launching in safe-mode also crashes immediately. However, after rebooting the machine, Firefox is absolutely fine once more (until the next time) which suggests to me there's "some state" left lying around somewhere preventing the restart (and perhaps related to the crash itself).

Here's the IDs of a couple of the safe-mode crashes, from attempted restarts (I figure those are most useful in cutting out the potential cruft; for reference, the non-safe-mode crashes appear to be at the exact same location):

bp-1c86b7c1-de6f-4153-b120-3ac320200814 bp-14a13b2b-6c6d-4d67-982d-132da0200814

Nothing comes up in the Correlations section of the report, and a search of the signature doesn't seem to turn up much relevant. Frankly, if I could just figure out how to get the browser restarted without rebooting the whole machine, that'd be a big step forward for me :)

Many thanks for any attention people can give this,

Dave.
