I'm getting popup notifications from customer-service25.higherincomejobs.com and jobsflag.com, even though I've gone to those sites and unsubscribed. Is this a virus? Is there a way to get the popups to stop?

I'm attaching a screenshot showing one of the notifications in the lower left corner of my screen.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am using DuckDuckGo with Firefox because I do not like auto suggestions filling up the search bar while I type. It's so annoying. I have ensured that Settings do not have auto complete in any way, but still they come. The only solution I can find on this website, which is Stop Auto Search in Firefox

There is a preference to change that back, but it does take a bit of work to find it because of the unusual name: (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box in the page, type or paste handoff and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar preference to switch the value from true to false Success?

I had no success with it at all. Please, how can I stop this wretched feature? Thanks.

After updating to Firefox 110 (snap running under Ubuntu Studio 22.04) I get "No synced logins found". The settings still show me logged in to my Firefox account and my synced bookmarks are still there. The saved logins are still there in my Firefox 110 installation running under Windows 10. A similar problem was reported here: Surface Pro 8 recently had No Synced Logins Found while other devices do not have this issue but I am opening a separate thread because the OP gives the impression that this is platform-specific. I am afraid to do anything in the Firefox installation under Ubuntu, for fear of overwriting (i.e. deleting) the saved logins which I can still access on my Windows installation. How should I proceed?

Firefox Developer Edition - Developer Console is killing my productivity. It started opening in Full screen mode about a week ago and will not exit full screen. I have to F12 and exit developer console. This is a major issue because, I work with the console not docked. Docking blocks my productivity. F11 only puts it into some very weird outline mode where all I see is a rectangular grey outline on my full screen. If I click on it, it repaints the console in full screen. There is no option to drag and expand or contract. Nothing. Nada. Please help. This is my primary browser, er -was my primary browser. I'll continue to work around it until my patience is completely exhausted. Almost there now.

Sorry about the terrible markup on the screenshot. It's hard to encircle a big gray full screen empty frame. Thank you.

After a recent reinstall Firefox seems to have a problem. This seems to be only Firefox specific and I can't find a working solution online after googling.

Youtube videos work, although they do give errors sometimes. A refresh always fixes those. However Twitch/Youtube live streams do not, and display a generic error message. When trying other browsers the live streams work fine.

And old Bugzilla post (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1467495) describes what I believe to be a possible reason for the problem, however following the solutions in that thread have not yet lead to a solution.

Any further insight or solutions would be appreciated.

WIN10 Pro; FF 110.0 (64-bit)

After upgrading to the above version and restarting the computer, I find that scrolling within a webpage no longer works using the mouse wheel. Scrolling can still be done using the vertical scroll on the right.

I've closed the browser and tried again, but the bug remains.

I've verified that mouse wheel scrolling still works by testing on other websites and on documents.

I am using Firefox Developer Edition Version: 110.0b5 (64-bit) on M1 Mac running Ventura 13.1.

I am building an webapp some XHR triggering in background but it is not necessary to run the application (running fine on other browsers). But on Firefox Developer Edition, It shows a error window with the message and stops loading the application.

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:4000.

localhost:4000 is the failing XHR request domain. I have attached the screenshot.

How to ignore the XHR failing errors just like other browsers?

Maybe this is obvious and I just don't know the proper terms to find a solution, but I've recently lost the little loading icon that spins in the left hand corner of a tab when you load a site (see gif). No idea what happened to it, but I've tried refreshing and reinstalling to no avail. Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 10 on my machine (not because of this) and it worked correctly until I booted up this morning and it's switched back to that weird icon. Any ideas how I might fix it? Could something like a windows update have messed it up? I miss that little spinney icon more than I would have expected.
