Private window icons in Win 10 doesn't work as expected with Profiles

I have shortcuts to launch Firefox in two ways, one with no commands and one with the following command: -P "Personal" --no-remote This used to show two separate Firefox icons on the taskbar. Firefox windows opened in each profile would be grouped with the same profile and kept separate from other profiles. With the latest update I still have two icons, the Default profile has a Firefox icon and the 'Personal' profile has a private browsing icon. Even though there are no private windows open. According to latest updates, if I open private windows then they should be grouped with their own icon. However, whether I have Default or Personal profile windows open, Private windows are grouped with their standard browsing windows.

This is on Win 10, Firefox 107.0.1

Any ideas how to fix this? Ideally I would have the standard Firefox icon on both profiles then, to conform with the private window separation update, my private windows would be separated from the standard windows but also from different profiles.

I logged into my website using Firefox, 3 days ago and blamed the server for not allowing the images to appear in the Media Library properly. It took several attempts before the images would appear properly.

Today, when trying to upload a tiny 43KB image, the same issue happened, and again I blamed the hosting server.

However, I have tried uploading the same image to 5 different websites, using Firefox and the SAME thing happens. This time, it doesn't matter how many times I upload and delete the same image. It simply refuses to be displayed.

Back to the site I want the image uploaded in, and I used the Opera browser... POOF! Image uploads FINE and displays PERFECTLY in Opera, as well as AFTER logging out. Checking with the Brave browser, yes, it too sees the image... but when I try viewing the page in Firefox, the browser REFUSES to load the image.

I've tried 2 different computers using 2 different IP addresses, and an Android device, using Firefox and NOPE, the image REFUSES to load.

What is going on... am I the ONLY one experiencing this issue?

I've cleared cookies, I've rebooted my working computer... I've exhausted EVERY attempt at my end in trying to figure this out.

Can ANYONE shed some light on this issue please? I have many visitors to all of my sites that use Firefox, so this HAS to be resolved a.s.a.p.

Thank you in advance, Trish

In the past, when you opened up private browsing, it seamlessly integrated itself into your browser, being indistinguishable. At a glance, no one would know you were private browsing; it blended in.

In a recent update, Mozilla did something unthinkable and made private browsing an isolated instance from Firefox. This, of course, results in a purple flare in the taskbar in front of the entire world that you are private browsing.

I don't understand who thought this was a good idea. I want to know how to undo this horrible change.

See the screenshot where you can't see any information on all my open Firefox windows, except for my private browsing window.

Hello, Q1: Is there a way to prevent Google search engine from accessing and sharing the city I live in via my IP address?

Q2: Can I block my IP address from Amazon, Google and other shareware/spyware garbage AND still access and use the internet?

At the bottom of a Google search result page I can read the city I live in based on my IP address. I would rather not have this shared as I search for products in different stores. I am signed into Google.

When I ran the "Privacy tab" in Firefox the Google search results still showed the city I live in.

I use a VPN, three security extensions("No-Script, Privacy-Badger & FaceBook Container) and Mozilla Firefox set at the "Strict" Browser Privacy level.

Thank you for reviewing these questions, Oliver

Image interactibility has changed since the last Firefox update.

It used to be I could do a Google search and I could click on the images on the main search result page (under the 'All' section, not the 'Images' section) and they would open in a new tab immediately.

Since the update when I click on an image it docks the image to the right...when I need it to open in a new tab.

If I can't get this fixed I will be going back to a previous version.

Help!

I have firefox set up so that it does not suggest anything except for my bookmarks.

So when I type in the address bar the only suggestions that come up are my bookmarks, no other suggestions.

For example when I need to translate something quick and want to go to the bookmarked page for google translate as soon as I type "trans..." it will suggest the link, Which is what I want and expect and is efficient.

But as has happened before, now I get a random suggestion coming up first so I have type more just to get to the same result otherwise I end up following a link to a suggested site which is at best aggravating.

I checked my seeting and there is one box ticked in the search suggestion settings that I cannot disable. I have tried and it always comes back.

How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Hello all,

For some reason, I can no longer upload or download files, with the pop-up window failing to appear entirely. I can upload folders through, for example, Dropbox or Google Drive, but individual files don't work.

I've reset my browser, uninstalled and reinstalled it, opened it in troubleshooting mode, disabled enhanced tracking protection, but nothing seemed to work. I've tested another browser, and I was able to upload and download files just fine.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 using Firefox 107.0.1.

Hi,

The highlighted process sometimes goes up to as high as 55% ish CPU for hours on end, making my computer lag for no reason. If I individually close the process, nothing happens, and the issue fixes itself (firefox runs fine with it closed).

It is concerning since I could not find anything on google about this process, is this some kind of malware? I did run a MalwareBytes scan on my entire computer, and nothing turned up.

Please let me know what that process is.

As Title,

Whenever I try to go full screen and hover to the top of the browser, It originally showed all my tabs, but recently it has not been doing that. When I hover over and over, the tabs maybe appear 10% of the time, but whenever I click somewhere else other than the Tab Bar, it disappears.

I think this bug happened ever since I enabled "Hide bookmark toolbar". I have since reverted it back, but the error is still the same. Weird, since my tabs disappear since it has nothing to do with bookmarks.

Specifically this is interesting because regular youtube content *will play just fine*

This is something I can readily reproduce for testing, diagnosis, and troubleshooting.

Please note: I have literally completed all fundamental troubleshooting several times. I respect due diligence and double checking, its just that I wish to be clear I've spent a few hours today on this and am thus far unable to impact the situation at all. --Note on Note: This includes disabling settings/features in firefox. Everything having to do with privacy, networking, hardware accel, and probably another category has been toggled multiple ways. This does not include mucking about in the detailed settings page ( about:config, etc etc). I do not memorize about:config settings I just use reference material to achieve a goal then promptly move on in life, and I am not a professional web developer though I can program so I haven't attempted to fiddle there at all. All that is to say consider any suggestions involving about:config or similar depth of settings to be *untested by myself on this matter* and therefore ripe for suggestions!

Oh, I also have not tested this in a VM. Although I certainly can if requested. I can note that a VPN does not impact this described behavior.

Well, I am able to get teh Ads to play prior to a live stream, sometimes. Note: Ads are not always displayed anyway so I cannot really know the statistics on this for sure.

At this point I have reinstalled Windows10 several times and can still reproduce this problem. All windows security settings have been toggled without impact on core issue. This has been reproduced through multiple win10 reinstalls.

Other browsers, other operating systems will function. I can use firefox on my various linux systems. I can use several versions of firefox to play these same videos on my linux systems.

However win10 at whatever patch level is unable to utilize firefox to play youtube live streams. Again, nothing I've done has impacted this behavior ( reg yt vids OK w/ preview and chats, live stream vids NOT OK, though ads and chats display fine )

I'm several varieties of engineer (Electrical, Networking, Security, Systems - whatever other varieties HR departments decide to use ) and can happily grab whatever data, or create whatever testing conditions that can be asked of me.

Thank you,
