This is in regard to the privacy settings under about:preferences#privacy > 'Allow firefox to send technical & interaction data to Mozilla' where I'm willing to opt into just interaction data, but not willing give my technical data, because of the temporary collection of my IP address. Due to this, I have to opt it out completely & unfortunately couldn't contribute to mozilla's data collection stats. If there's anyway to split those separately, would be better.

Thank you, Prince Cooper

Further to my post about Firefox not connecting to websites. We use Norton 360 for virus control. Nothing has changed there. When searching the net for information Firefox for the last month is unable to access many websites. This only happens with Firefox. Something has changed and I cannot find out what it is so that I can correct it. The settings for microsoft edge are the same and it does not happen with it. I've tried resetting it,deleting and reinstalling but nothing changes.

Yahoo mail is the only site on my browser that doesn't work. It opens and loads and you can open an email but you can't do anything with it. You can't look at attachments, delete, move, star, or anything. I've reloaded yahoo, created a new password and signed back in, closed Firefox and opened back up, restarted my laptop and opened back up, cleared cache - NOTHING WORKS. It works just fine on Chrome and my phone. I noticed that yahoo mail url is the only one that has a cross site cookie symbol. But when I take it out, it still doesn't work. I am beyond annoyed.

I'm trying to take a proctored test with PearsonVue. It keeps saying on the system test that Firefox is still running. I've tried shutting down through Task Manager. I've tried rebooting and just using Chrome to access the test page. It still says it's running. Next step is to uninstall...surely there's another solution!?

Hello, Every since the last 2 updates. When I drag and drop a web site from browser into a folder, the ico that is attached to the website are super super tiny now. They were not before. I have been forced to make Icon (ico) myself from the website Logo (if they can be found) I have attached a picture. The bottom Link is how it now comes out from Firefox (Mozilla browser) since the last 2 upgrades. The top one with the folder "new folder" is how it SHOULD be, but I had to make this ico myself and exchange it out. - this happens to EVERY file I drag and drop. The second photo - the one with family group etc. The top link one is how always use to be the bottom link is how it now comes out. - See how small it has become.

How can I put it back to the top one. - only way I have been to fix this is to exchange it with my own (made) icon - and with this FK (Familykin) one, I can not find a logo clipart to replace it. (which I have been using lots of , as I do my geneology of famous people). Please help me laurie O (Sweden), ps, I prefer english.

We generally can't access 53.com using Firefox (102.0.1 (64-bit) on MacOS on our M1 Macbook Air, but can on Windows 11. All software versions are current, and we even periodically encountered this on our Mac with past versions of Firefox and MacOS software. Clearing cookies and cache has sometimes helped, but is not working now. There is no error code displayed, the signin in box simply has its three dots continuing to cycle indicating that it is working, but the status bar is not displaying the "transferring data from onlinebanking.53.com" url as it does on Windows, per the attached screenshot. Created the attached screen shot from Windows, but this is where it hangs on the Mac. Also, this happens whether the extensions are enabled or not, and there are far fewer extensions on the Mac browser, primarily Lastpass and Grammarly. BTW, the site works fine on Chrome on both systems, but we obviously want to stick with Firefox.

Any suggestions on how this can be resolved once and for all would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks and regards,

Howard

  • The attached image shows Firefox (on the right) not displaying Helvetica correctly. It appears jagged and not pleasant to look at. The browser on the left is Edge and all Chromium based web browsers seem to render it as it should.
  • I've tried to look into (about:preferences#general) and the option that says (Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above) is ticked.
  • I've also tried reinstalling the browser, clearing the website cache and also, removing my profile from it. None of these seemed to fix the issue.
  • It's been persistent for quite some time now, however I didn't really find any articles regarding this issue.
  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I use Bell webmail and have no problem accessing emails. However cannot open/click an attachment square from Bell regarding a survey they emailed me. There was a square saying 'complete survey' when I printed their email but not visible on my email desktop screen. When I forwarded email to a friend she was able to open the survey and thinks it is a browser problem. Can you suggest how to open an attachment. I have no problem with PDF links and those underlined. Thank you. Elly Scholten

Hi, I have Autoplay disabled in the firefox settings, however as most people will know a lot of websites circumnavigate this becasue they know better then me.

The below website "Twitter" refuses to acknowledge my "settings" https://twitter.com/search?src=typed_query&q=%23ukraine

Why can't Firefox fix this? Why have settings if websites can just ignore them?? Also another thing, Autoplay dosen't make any sense to me, if you wan't to watch the full video, you have to first turn on sound, and then move the slider bar the the start. This is stupid! Just let the user choose if they would like to have videos autoplay or not. I hate the internet.

One more thing, I do realize there is a setting in Twitter to disable autoplay, however you need to be logged in for that option to be available. Websites should just repesct the settings of there webusers. Thants why "global settings' exist. Unfortunately just another redisculous control feature of the modern internet.

Thank you for reading and or helping.

I'm testing FF102 for rollout in September and working through various issues. The latest one I've come across is the edit bookmark "button" on the right of the URL bar. It's a blank space on the URL bar, and when hovered over is a highlighted blank space. After clicking it twice it displays the Edit book mark menu.

How can I remove it completely? I've look at about:config and nothing stands out as obvious to me controlling this and I can't find a setting for it.

The image below shows the highlighted blank icon space.

This code in userChrome.css worked in FF91 but only hides the icon in FF102.

#star-button { display:none !important; }


Thanks
