[LINUX][NON-WINDOWS][ONLY REPRODUCABLE ON LINUX] Sessionstore variables for OS restart don't do anything

browser.sessionstore.resuming_after_OS_restart = false. My browser still restores on os restart. Startup -> Restore previous windows and tabs is unchecked browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes = 0 browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand = false browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash = false

I do not and will not manually close my browser session every time I want to shut down my computer in order to get it to do what it's supposed to. Linux sends SIGTERM to all running processes on shutdown. Firefox isn't handling this correctly, obviously, because if it was, then my settings would be getting respected. SIGTERM is the standard signal sent to windows that need to close gracefully and are expected to still be functional.

NOTE: Do not provide windows-specific support to this thread. I am not running firefox on windows, and I do not possess a windows computer or license.

On my Windows 10 desktop, I have used www.bostonglobe.com for years with no problem. Firefox keeps me logged in and if, for any reason, am not, I click on the login link and Firefox fills in my login. Lately this does not work. I just updated Firefox and it still does not work. Bostonglobe.com loads but when I click on the login link all I get is a blank page. This works in Chrome and in Firefox on my Samsung tablet. I deleted all the bostonglobe cookies but this does not help. I have rebooted the computer and this does not help either. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

This may be a duplicate complaint, as I got cut off before I could complete. With at least two banks I use, FireFox displays data-entry boxes for dates incorrectly - it truncates the last digit. Chrome (the gold standard?) displays correctly. My example images, first from Chrome, second from FireFox, seem to have survived the cut off.

For awhile now whenever I visit Kickstarter, I never get the full page to load. I mainly notice it in the header where the info for the campaign information doesn't show on Firefox. I've tried playing around with my widgets and protection to see if that would allow the page to fully load, but nothing has worked.

Hi guys.

I'm wondering if it's possible to send tab from macOS Firefox to another device... I couldn't find any clue to achieve that, since that right click doesn't have the option to send tab throughout the devices like on windows.

Tks.

When I use Microsoft Edge Browser in the top row it shows my Bookmarks and to the left it also shows an icon that allows you to jump back to the Edge Browser.

In Mozilla Firefox there is no icon to take you back to the Firefox browser. Occasionally a site will Hi-Jack you and trying to use the back arrow to get back to the Browser does not work. The only solution is to shut down the Firefox browser and then restart it again.

I would rather use Firefox as it support HTML 5 audio which is not supported in Microsoft Edge.

Can you please advise.

Many thanks

In the last few weeks Firefox will not open even when using admin rights. NOTE: I have followed all available posts including multiple uninstalls (complete), deleting Firefox folders, reinstalling, etc. There have been no major (or known) changes to my Windows 10 Pro system. I run Heimdal Thor and Kaspersky antivirus protection and there have been no conflicts running both at any time. I also use Acronis Protection (I know it may seem like overkill but it works). I have turned off each of the above and Firefox still does not open. Firefox runs with no problems on my personal and work laptops. I am CompTia A+ Certified so somewhat knowledgeable (a little knowledge is a dangerous thing!) and have run sfc /scannow with no issues noted. Plus, two Heimdal support reps have logged onto my system, attempted to find a solution, found no issues with my system (Omen 880 even though I don't game). My wife is a dedicated Firefox user and wants it back.

Some web pages contain data split into pages and provide something like "Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next" at the bottom of each page. One example is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#search I would like to be able to move between pages without using the mouse using a keyboard shortcut.

Is there any way that Firefox could simulate a mouse click on a particular element and link this to a key?

I first thought this issue was contained to a single website and was the fault of their IT, but I have begun to experience this issue on other websites, and it does not occur on other devices also using Firefox. It is difficult to explain given that I don't have any idea what is actually happening, but hopefully I can make it clear enough.

For some websites that require a username and password, I will correctly login and pass authentication but then I will be booted back to the initial login screen, almost like the login failed. I only know that it is technically a log out, not a failure, because I have briefly seen the URL change like I'm logging out. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox fresh multiple times on my Windows 11 laptop, but the same issue occurs consistently.

This happened when I was trying to login to the student portal for my university and when I was trying to login to my apartment's resident portal. Changing cookie settings or going into a private browser has not helped at all. I cannot tell if this is a bug with Firefox (maybe just on Windows 11?) or if there is some background setting that needs to be adjusted, but it is very frustrating. If this keeps happening, I would have to switch to a different browser, which would not be ideal.

Does anyone have any idea of steps that I could take for troubleshooting or any experience with similar issues? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

We use a cloud-based ERP system. To access it, we use a bookmark for users to get to the initial login screen in Firefox. There has been a change in the login screen that will require us to use a different URL. We have about 75 PCs with many having multiple user profiles for Firefox that need the new URL.

I know how to quickly copy and paste the bookmark by remoting into a PC and then doing a copy/paste from the bookmarks toolbar on my PC to the bookmark toolbar on the remote PC.

I could also create a procedure for users to create their own bookmark but I think some users would find that a challenge.

I'd like to make this process more of a silent install but haven't figured out how to manage it.

We're currently all Windows 10 Pro using Firefox v101.0.1 64-bit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

For a class I'm taking I turned off the ad blocker. When I reset the privacy/security settings I may have also cleared the browser and or settings. Now I'm not receiving the subscriptions I've signed up for.

I've added the email addresses to my yahoo contacts and changed my passwords and I am still not receiving the subscription emails. Is the setting I need to change in Yahoo or Firefox? It's driving me nuts and no matter what I do (change login, settings on the sites) I am still not getting emails from my subscriptions.

Hello,

Before the release of Firefox 99, the drag and drop function of e-mail using OWA (Microsoft Outlook) stopped working. In the last version of 99, it started working again (and I was very happy). My browser just updated to 100 and it stopped working again (and, of course, Firefox recommends not downgrading).

This is getting very frustrating, as I use Firefox at work and it is actually a lot of time wasted, going in and attaching files without drag and drop. I am on the verge of abandoning Firefox as my browser, since these features work in both Safari and Chrome. However, I do like the usability and security of Firefox, so I am hoping you can fix this very soon.

-Chris
