A few days ago, I tried to have one window for private mode and one for public. For Private mode, I used settings for custom history and Always use Private browsing Mode. Somehow, it didn't work. I'm old and forget a lot of what I did. I reinstalled FF a few times, to no avail. So did uninstall and told them why, and that I planned to be back in a few days. Also, I uninstalled the Maintenance program first. I went to EDGE, but really hate it, so I downloaded FF now. Set for Private browsing. But it doesn't work. Keep getting public browsing. Even if I select it on taskbar icon, no luck. Don't see the purple glasses or whatever they were. I really like to use private mode.

I can sure use some advice.

I added a few sites I frequently visit, such as banks, credit card company Google, to the exceptions list in Cookies And Site Data. When my version of Firefox was recently updated to 102.0.1, a few of those sites began asking for additional authentication because they didn't recognize my computer. So I added the recommended add-on, Cookie Quick Manager. and listed those sites as protected. This worked for a few days but Google and my credit card company again don't recognize my computer. I am not using a VPN.

Thank you.

Hi,

I live in Switzerland. When I type website address: https://www.pokemon.com Firefox changes it constantly (and instantly) to: https://www.pokemon.com/de/ which is useless to me because I don't know German.

Hello,

Until recently, I was able to have Firefox automatically clear all my cookies at the end of a session, EXCEPT for the cookies for websites that I had specified. This was possible by:

  • Checking the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" option under `Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data`
  • Setting the websties that I would like to keep cookies for, under `Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage exceptions`

Now, I simply can no longer use this feature. If I try checking the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" option, then quitting Firefox, it seems to insist on unchecking the box, then changing another section of my privacy settings. Namely the `Privacy and Security > History > Clear history when Firefox closes` section becomes checked, and inside, `Cookies` is marked as something to be cleared at the end of each session. This is unhelpful, because checking the box here means that any exceptions I set in the aforementioned section is not respected, and ALL cookies are deleted.

Am I doing something wrong? If there is a way to get it back to how it used to behave, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi,

I am testing v102esr of Firefox for a rollout in September.

One of this issues I have come across is the extremely high number of processes started when opening Firefox.

We have our own website run via Windows Server using IIS. The home page has no remote content - it's all local so I don't believe any remote content is being opened. There is only one tab open.

For each new tab I open I get at least one additional process. So with 10 tabs opened I ended up with 24 processes.

In FF91esr this was 3-5 processes. I also noticed under performance settings I can no longer specify the number of processes.

Is there any way to reduce this number to something more sane, like 3-5?

Also, why is there a Console Window Host running under Firefox?

Is the Node.js also new? I don't recall seeing it before

thanks

I had set up a userContent.css file in the past to pull up and fetch an image on my computer to display as a background on the homepage. It worked and did it's job until recently, when I had recently relocated a lot of my files around on my computer. I have redirected everything to where I want it to look, including the userContent.css file to the new location for the image I want as the background. Firefox loads the .css file correctly, and recognizes the file existing, but it won't load the image itself for some odd reason. It states it "may not load or link the file" because of a security error, and thus, can't load the image. I never had to deal with this before. How can I get Firefox to be able to load my image like I want it to? I have screenshots that I can provide, but this site doesn't want to upload them at the moment.

I recall recently discovering an option that allowed me to designate websites that I no longer wanted to see in my search results. I thought this was x-useful as it seems there are a few websites that frequently appeared near the top of the search results that were "come-ons"; that is when you click on the link in the search results, they only offered an option to "sign up" for access. I don't want to see this junk, and I did add one website to the list.

I've got another one I want to add, but I can't find the interface to add this website to the list. I thought it was a DuckDuckGo feature, but I don't see it anywhere! Is this a Firefox feature ? ... or have I lost my mind  :P

(Firefox 102 on Windows.)

Indicating the progress of a runnig download in the taskbar is ok, but when the size of the download is unknown, there is a fast animation, that keeps going and going and going. That´s very annoying, when you want to keep focused on a difficult issue elsewhere on the screen. (Sadly I have these 'endless' and slow downloads quite often at work - e.g. github.)

How can this animation be disabled?

I would happily lose the normal download progress if only this fast animation disappears.

In about:config I did not find anything applicable when searching for 'download', 'animate', 'progress' or 'taskbar'.

Hi

Firefox 102.

I have multi-accounts containers and pinned two tabs for two twitter accounts.

In one of these accounts I copied a link to a tweet and wanted to open it in the other account. So I selected the right tab and past the link in the address bar and press enter. Firefox then opened this url in a new tab instead of the current pinned tab. It seems pinned are locked but there is no context menu entry to unlock them without having unpin them.

Is there a hidden option in about:config that would allow to change the url of a pinned tab ? I want a pinned tab that work the same way as a regular one if I want to.

em pt-br:

Olá

Devido ao fato do Chrome não manter minhas credenciais e toda vez que eu iniciava este browser eu tinha que fornecer meu login e senha além do fato do Suporte deles não ter resolvido o problema, eu decidi mudar para o Firefox apesar de não ser o mais legal nem prático e intuitivo para se navegar como o Opera e o Vivaldi, mas sim por popularidade.

-O problema: Desde ontem, a página do Gmail não abre, isto é, mostra uma página totalmente em branco conforme anexo, apesar do link estar correto e, na verdade, eu utilizar os links dos Favoritos para diminuir a digitação e aumentar a agilidade.

-Minhas tentativas de solução: Eu desabilitei todas as extensões do Firefox (eu eu já utilizava mesmo antes do problema ocorrer); Eu executei uma limpeza geral utilizando o CCleaner; Eu abri o Chrome e, para variar, me loguei (por causa do problema mencionado acima) e a página do Gmail é exibida corretamente com todos os e-mails de hoje; Eu copiei este link do Gmail, no Chrome, para utilizar no Firefox porque estavam diferentes mas mesmo assim o problema persiste.

Acabaram as ideias

Obrigado

PS: Como inserir mais imagens porque só uma é permitida?

english: Hello

Due to Chrome not keeping my credentials and every time I started this browser I had to provide my login and password in addition to the fact that their Support didn't solve the problem, I decided to switch to Firefox despite not being the coolest not practical and intuitive to navigate like Opera and Vivaldi, but by popularity.

-The problem: Since yesterday, the Gmail page does not open, that is, it shows a completely blank page as attached, although the link is correct and, in fact, I use the Favorites links to reduce typing and increase agility.

-My solution attempts: I disabled all Firefox extensions (I was using them even before the problem occurred for the first time); I performed a general cleanup using CCleaner; I opened Chrome and for a change I logged in (because of the problem mentioned above) and the Gmail page displays correctly with all of today's emails; I copied this link from Gmail, in Chrome, to use in Firefox because they were different but the problem still persists.

the ideas finished

I use Firefox as my primary browser, and Comodo IceDragon as a back-up browser. For about the past week my Hotmail account, accessed through Outlook Live website, does not load it just brings up a white screen. I deleted all my temp files, and anything else I could think of that may be preventing it, but that did not work. In fact after doing this I have not been able to access my USAA account, it takes me to the log in screen and once I put in my user name it just keeps asking for the user name, it does not go any further. The pages are loading correctly with the Comodo IceDragon browser which I believe is very similar to Firefox.

I would very much like to get this issue resolved. I hope to get a response soon.
