Hello. I'm using a brand-new installation of Firefox 78.0.1 on a freshly installed copy of Windows 10 Pro. The only way I can get Firefox to display any notifications is by having alerts.useSystemBackend set to true. While this is set to false, notifications will not work. If I use this site to test them, it just says, 'queued for display', followed immediately by 'closed'. I've also tried creating a new profile and testing it again with no success. All sites were granted notification permissions in each case.

Thanks for any help.

I use Firefox for my office, and there are several URLs internal to my company that work with a single word.

For example: "xyz/12345" is the same as "http://xyz.company.com/12345" which opens the resource 12345.

This used to work absolutely fine until the latest update.

Current: 78.0.1 (64-bit) on MAC OS 10.15.5

Now, xyz/12345 searches google instead of navigating to the website. I do still need google search on the browser bar, as I use it frequently as well.

Having to type out http://xyz/12345 is an overhead that I would like to avoid.

Please suggest if there are any workarounds that could be used to get this working again.

Sync - I cannot for the life of me figure out the parameters of operation

After hooking up four devices to sync through Firefox, I ended up with a mess and a lot of irritation which I have not recovered from. That was six months ago. What I failed to understand is that there is no control of the direction of sync. I presumed that all would sync from my primary account computer. Wrong and truly a disaster because I had spent hours organizing thousands of bookmarks. An old computer with an old bookmarks setup (very disorganized) added its confused mess back into my attempt on the new computer to finally get organized. I still have not sorted through most of the mess.

So how in the hell does Sync actually and exactly work? Is there any directional flow? Or does it just mash the shared stuff together. How can I delete any bookmark file Sync has at Firefox server with exact knowledge of what I am doing? Why is this stuff so obscure? I exactly want to know how to ensure that Sync has no cache of obsolete material and exactly, if possible, to direct the flow....should I use only share a tab? one at a time?

Thanks, Michael Mandeville, Arizona mwman@q.com

Site claims third-party cookies blocked but Enhanced Protection is disabled - how to fix?

I have problems with multiple sites that claim that third-party cookies are blocked and do not work even though though the Enhanced Tracking Protection is disabled for the site (the shield icon is grey and striked-through). In particular it is teams.microsoft.com and Instapaper (their saving bookmarklet sends me always to a site reading "enable unrestricted third-party cookie access for www.instapaper.com" - though this might be a different issue than Teams).

I have read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enhanced-tracking-protection-firefox-desktop?redirectslug=enable-and-disable-cookies-website-preferences&redirectlocale=en-US#w_how-to-tell-when-firefox-is-protecting-you and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-say-cookies-are-blocked-unblock-them (trying even to "forget" the teams website; not doing the full wipe out of everything).

How to troubleshoot / fix this? I am a technical person so I can dig into it if just somebody points me in the right direction...

Thank you!

Hello,

eg. at these websites: https://www.zetor-forum.de or https://www.hobby-gartenteich.de

I and also all other FireFox using members can't logout from and when we load the site, we mostly see older content instead of the new one. The behavoir come up wit FireFox v77 and we can reproduce at the above named sites eg.

The FF Dev-consol gives me no hint what kind of problem FF with this site has.

Other Browsers, like Chrome or Edge render the site with actual content and login/logout is without trouble possible.

So I come to my question: What can be the problem, that FF not render the newest content at this sites and let me not logout eg? I have no right idea, what we can do, that FF will be happy with our sites as bevor v77. What can I do to found the problem and what to fix it?

Both sites uses Xenforo 1.5.28 (latest), PHP 7.3.x, MariaDB 10.x, Redis Cache server side

I hope anybody can give me a hint, so I can do my best to solve it.

Best regards, Joachim

Hey, I'm using Firefox as my PDF reader and I need to do a lot of searching throughout documents. When I use CTRL+F to search for and highlight text, the found text is highlighted in a very light green color that does not contrast well with the white background of the page. Is there a way to manually change this color to make it contrast better so it is more noticeable? Thanks!

Hello, I am trying to make a paypal purchase and firefox will not load paypal.

I have tried in safe mode, I have tried clearing the cache

If I clear cache and use safemode it will make it to the login page then be forwarded to a blank page after I login. ...After I have logged in even the paypal main page (https://www.paypal.com) will just load blank.

Thanks.
