Up until this last update, in Gmail inbox, each message could be moused over top and action icons would show up. This no longer happens and I don't know why. It was very convenient not to have to open the message to take action on it and then return to the inbox. Now if I click the checkbox on the left side of the message those icons appear, but I never had to do this before??? I have not made any changes to the settings on my 1 year old Macbook Pro or Firefox configuration...

Using Firefox View, I am unable to view my tabs from other devices after setting up Sync. It is saying Check your internet connection. If you’re using a firewall or proxy, check that Firefox has permission to access the web. as if I don't have a correctly configured connection. However I indeed do and am able to browse the web without any issues. I should mention that I'm running the latest stable flatpak and I'm wondering if this could be related but I have no idea how to manipulate the flatpak to make this work.

I have noticed that my browser saves certain data that was filled into forms on websites such as contact info, or 2FA codes. Of course, the all options for Logins and Passwords as well as Forms and Autofill are turned off. So I wonder, what causes this behavior? I would maybe think these are some cookies, but after clearing them and deleting all site data this still happens. For 2FA codes this is harmless. but I'm concerned Firefox may do this for passwords too. Anyway, why would I need to save info of TOTP?

Note: Example is for SimpleLogin.

Both devices are recognized in my account. After running Sync, the history from the desktop is on the mobile but the bookmarks are not. Desktop is running Firefox snap v. 121 on Ubuntu 22.04. Mobile is running Firefox app v. 121 on Android 10. I have a copy of the sync.log but it's really long. Can attach if needed.

When I go to website nypost.com, and select a random article that has a video display at the top of that page, a pop up of a smaller video window appears in the lower right corner of the screen.

For example,

Go to nypost.com Select an article with a video such as https://nypost.com/2024/01/30/metro/phony-uber-driver-charged-with-ripping-off-nyc-bar-patrons-in-cellphone-scheme/

There is a pop window of a smaller video screen that shows in the lower right corner

Autoplay is disabled

Is there a specific setting to stop this functionality of the pop up video window to appear? Is the block pop up window functionality in the same category of this description supplied above?

Thank you.

After i moved to another location and getting now internet via fiber and via fritz!-router 7530 i have issues with readability in many cases: Google News, Mailbox at GMX. To the 7530 my notebook is normally connected via WLAN. Text is in places often not shown, or colored in black or green or magenta, Images are often in places or complete filled with flicker (white, green, magenta, black). I suspected the WLAN connection and searched and read the ffox-help und tried some things, but nothing helped. Using a long cable from 7530 to nb has no effect.

Recently after signing in to Pocket, all my tags disappeared. They can still be seen at each individual entry, but not on the list of tags. Any new tags I added also don't appear in the list of tags, which is completely empty. Searching for tags also gives no results. I tried to log out and log in again, but it had no effect.

I run Firefox 121.0 on Windows 10 Pro. I use a VPN (ExpressVPN) and normally run Ghostery and uBlock Origin. When I log onto Townhall.com and enter my VIP credentials all is fine. However, when I read an article I should be able to access the comments. I cannot in Firefox and this is something that has occurred about 3-4 weeks ago. For years I have not had any problem like this with Firefox.

I tested VIP access with my iPhone - works fine. I tried Vivaldi - works fine. I tried Chrome - works fine. I try Firefox - fails!

I ran Firefox in "TroubleShoot" mode, with all add-ons turned off and it also fails. Even when I run Vivaldi I have Ghostery and ad blocking turned on, but Ghostery does allow townhall.com on their whitelist.

I've send emails to Townhall.com and am not getting any responses. However, I was having the issue with all devices but all have been fixed except with Firefox. So, I have no idea why this is an issue with Firefox but not with any other device.

Any thoughts?

On gmail "https://mail.google.com/mail"

I am already logged into my main account, when I click on my profile picture in the top right in order to add accounts/sign into other gmail accounts, I get this error:

"403. That’s an error.

We're sorry, but you do not have access to this page. That’s all we know."

I tried clearing cookies and no help.

Bare in mind this is on a fresh firefox install on a new desktop, I have been using firefox on my other desktop with no gmail issues like this.

This might just be a blind thing, I use the NVDA screen reader, but when I sign in to firefox, my password is 12 letters long, but when I look on my settings page, it's 18 characters long, is this normal?

I can log in using my 12 letter password and it's not a master password, I don't have one of those.

Any help would be apreciated.

I have been running "Ancestry.com" on Firefox" for a number of years without any issues. The last few weeks if I open Ancestry to a window that shows a family tree the window freezes and I get a notice that says "This window is slowing down your browser" and it gives me a button with a "Stop" option. When I click the button the window unfreezes for one click and freezes again. This only happens in a "tree" window, the rest of the application works OK. I have done many of the troubleshooting steps, renew refresh, clear cache etc. with no improvement. I checked with "Ancestry" the recommend Firefox or Chrome. Trying Chrome there was no problem. My preference is Firefox as Chrome is to invasive.

I am running Windows 10 (up to date), an Asus Z87 Plus motherboard, an intel core i7-4770K cpu and a EVGA GTX 650 Ti Boost gpu with all drivers up to date. I have Firefox set as my default browser.

Please advise - Thank You John H ( jrhop@hvc.rr.com)

Firefox periodically says I am "forbidden" to enter my Kaiser website (KP.org). I know what Mozilla recommends as a fix, which is to clear data and cookies. But this creates more problems because I have to re-enter passwords and other settings. This is a problem Mozilla's website reports has been occurring for YEARS! Why can't Mozilla/Firefox fix this? Please tell me there is a better way to fix this problem.
