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!

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?

Will try to explain. Not talking about the website tabs as favorites in the top row - but about module tabs to show up in the top row in a program. When I open a program (work related) - there are modules in the program such as "Participants," "Financial," "Vendors," and so on. When I click on a module, it opens up in a new browser. Problem is, when it's in a new browser, it doesn't identify participant/case I'm working on. I want the "Participants" module tab to appear in the same page in the top row so I can see which case it is - and be able to switch tabs on the same page (like you would with different websites on Firefox homepage). I tried to paste a snapshot of it here but didn't allow me to. In Chrome - I can click on a module/link, then on the top header right click my mouse to select the option to "Show as Tab" - then the tab will appear on the same page and I can easily identify which participant/case I'm working on. I prefer to use Firefox - however it doesn't offer that option to show as tab. I was using Internet Explorer, IE - but the program is no longer supported by IE. Is there a way in Firefox? Thank you.

My corporate intranet site uses cookies. It used to work on Firefox with no troubles. A year + ago, it stopped working. It still works fine with IE and Edge.

I found the issue is the cookie. When I check it on the login page, the cookie is there and I can access the values inside of it. After i redirect to the next page, the cookie is no longer there. I am reading it using request.cookie("CookieName")("CookieVariable").

Can someone give me advice what can be causing this?

Thanks.

I am seeing problems identical to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1273349

When I click a menu it briefly appears and then immediately disappears.

Turning on "Disable popup auto-hide" solves the issue, but this is a work around not a solution.

Restarting Firefox with a clean brand new profile resolves the problem. So it seems nothing to do with any of my plugins.

But after I click on a link from within emacs, the first time I open a menu it is fine. Then the 2nd time I try to open a menu it disappears immediately. There might be other conditions that do this also, but this is the most reliable way I have found to date.

I believe emacs is calling firefox, by default, using "xdg-open". If I manually use this command from a command prompt to open a web page. It works fine. Huh???

I changed emacs to explicitly invoke Firefox. At first this seemed to have solved this problem. But now it has come back again.

This has been ongoing for some time, over a large range of Firefox versions. Currently I can reproduce with 68.11.0 ESR and 80.0.1

Sometimes I have done something and I think I have magically resolved the issue, but then it comes back again.

This is currently Debian/buster and Debian/bullseye using the i3 window manager. In the past I have also had the same issue with Debian/stretch. I have multiple monitors. I doubt any of this is relevant, but just in case.

Unlike the previous referenced post I have not been able to reproduce this under OSX. Although I don't often click links from emacs either. So wonder if that is significant.

Does anyone have any ideas? Has anyone had the same problem? Just with Facebook? When I load each tab separately, it loads fast. But when I right-click the folder containing the 7 sites and choose Open all in Tabs, this happens. On my workstation at the office they load almost instantaneously. I have rebuilt my Windows profile for good measure, even though when I logged in and tried this in my Administrator profile, I have the same issue. I have disabled the 5 Firefox add-ons and tried - same thing.:-(
