Hi, I am reporting an error/bug/issue about cutting internet speed while running speedtest.net and speedtest.pl tests and other similar websites launched on the win 10 pro platform using Fierfox 64bit webbrowser. I have a 300Mb link, firefox downloads data at 100Mb speed. I tested the browsers: chrome, MS Edge (pre chromium and chromium versions), vivaldi. All but firefox are pulling the full 300Mb.

I also tested the ESR version and it has the same annoying effect. This effect also occurs in the browser on the android version - (HUAWEI P20). Interestingly, it does not appear on linux distributions related to debian (ESR version). I have updated all WIFI / Ethernet drivers to the latest versions. I've created new firefox accounts, deleted profiles, etc. It doesn't help. Please take the problem seriously. And don't refer me to tutorials on how to delete accounts, delete profiles, etc. due to being done anyway. Other browsers just work, and cross-platform. Thanks in advance for any replay.

Firefox makes connection to 'locprod1-elb-eu-west-1.prod.mozaws.net' on every start of the browser. After trying to figure out if its caused by one of my addons I tried Safe mode and found out addons ware not the reason but after using Safe mode the browser started making connection and to d2nxq2uap88usk.cloudfront.net on every start too. The only info I have found for 'locprod.prod.mozaws.net' is that its related to geo.enabled but mine is set to False and for d2nxq2uap88usk.cloudfront.net the only thing for it is in block list for SpotifyAdBlock. I have already tried everything on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections .

Why does make Firefox makes those connections? What is transmitted? And How can I disable them?

I've installed CentOS 8, but I have a niggle.

I have two Firefox windows open: one on my left screen, one on my right screen.

I have VLC playing video on my left screen.

I would like to use the Firefox window on my right screen without it bringing the Firefox window to the front on my left screen, thus covering VLC.

Both Firefox windows act independently on Windows 10, I would like this behaviour in CentOS. Is there an option for this?

Thank you

Hi. I'm a user of OpenVPN which uses TAP (a virtual network adapter) to establish VPN connections. Sometimes I need to switch VPN on/off when browsing websites, but I didn't find options like "select a network adapter to use" within Firefox. Currently the only solution is to connect/disconnect OpenVPN to switch VPN on/off, but it's quite inconvenient for me.

I've tried searching for add-ons about this, but a possible one named "FoxyProxy" has dropped this feature recently because of the changes about Firefox API, so I think my problem can be no longer solved by add-ons.

Any solutions to this? Can I have this feature provided by Firefox with updates if there isn't any workaround for now?

FireFox ESR 68.11.0 - 64bit Windows 8.1

Start typing a URL in the address bar ... a search bar drops down automatically and begins searching. What is the real fix for this annoying and insecure behavior?

There are dozens if not hundreds of search posts on this topic, most are specific to a particular version of FireFox. Developers, I shudder every time I update the program because I know I will be spending hours or days on a new configuration. Apparently, developers have cleverly eliminated the settings that disable this feature.

This drop-down search bar is annoying and unnecessary. A child might find it useful. Simply put, the user should be able to turn it on or off in the "Options" section. We don't like playing with your about.config settings, or adding code. If I type an address in the URL bar, I do not want the URL searched arbitrarily. Nor do I want to see a new pop-up bar. Please make the use of these "features" optional.

Please create a new general information topic "Removing the automatic URL search" and put this topic to rest once and for all. This is an excellent argument for a paid version of FireFox. I would gladly pay for a clean program rather than waste my time tweaking every single new version.

Thank you!

All are Allowed. Including Recaptcha.net. However, the icon is displaying a red "1" which means something is being blocked.

I have this continuing request to update passwords and have seen a thread on this but have no duplicate passwords for any account.

The problem has another twist to it. There is a password set in the option that is not the one I have just used to sign in.The password is very long and repeatedly uses the text "padding ****"

Just wonder if anyone else has seen this?
