Windows 10 Home 21H1 (in Korean Environment) Firefox Developer Edition 92.0b5 (64-bit)

When I open a local file which linked firefox as default app by file extension, it seems to open in a new window for about 5 sec. Then the new tab is close, and it opens as a new tab in already opened window. However this problem didn't happen to until recently.

I searched on google but i can't find that I want answer to solve this problem. It's so annoying :( pls help

Hi, Since the last update, when I click on a link, the new tab can't be launched. It opens and closed immediatly. I have to click a second time to open it. It is the same problem when I open a new tab manually, I type web address, and when I click on "Enter", the tab closes... I have to do it again and it works. It is not the first time. Next year, after an update, I had the same problem. No change on my systems (Windows 10) and on my MacBook too... Is there anyone who have the same problem ? How to resolve it ? Thank you

Firefox times out when connecting to a site with URL redirection unless HTTPS protocol is explicitly typed

I am running Firefox Developer Edition 92.0b9 on macOS Monterey 12.0 Beta 6 (21A5506j).

I noticed lately that I couldn't open some sites, either when I tried to follow a link or typed the URL in the address bar. After a few trials and errors, I think I have identified a pattern but no idea of what the root cause is:

  • the sites I am trying to access all redirect to a different URL;
  • I can open the sites just fine if I explicitly type `https://` in the address bar.

A few of the sites I am struggling with:

I noticed that I could open the above URLs just fine in a Private window, so tried the following to no avail:

  • Clear cache;
  • Restart Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode (still on as I am writing this);
  • Install Firefox Beta side-by-side;
  • Completely uninstall Firefox and remove the existing profile, before doing a fresh install.

None of the above solutions work and I am a bit stumped. Safari, Chrome and Brave all work fine.

When some websites use DRM Software's I must Disable my extensions to play the video. How can I disable the add-ons to the specific website? And if it cannot be done how can I disable all my extensions at once. Without un-ticking one by one?

Because every time I visit the website with DRM I must Go one by one to disable my add-ons.

My menu items are now (9/7/2021) White and double-spaced. Why does FireFox change things that don't need changing with no path back. First, they changed menu color to default to another (I think same as Toolbar color) with no recourse. Now the menus are white and double spaced (today! out of the blue sky!!). FireFox, at LEAST make these features configurable. Why do you do this?

Good morning. I have been using Firefox for a long time, but yesterday this message appeared:

Redirect loop

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this resource in such a way that it cannot be completed.

    This problem may occur as a result of blocking or rejecting cookies. 

It appears only when I want to enter the name of the item on the field auction in Poland: https://allegro.pl/

There was never such a problem before. I can use this page, but I cannot enter any data. I sell a lot through it and I need it very much. I have cleared cookies for this site. It didn't do anything. The page opens normally on the other browser I used to check. I don't know what I can do to fix the problem. Please help.

PS. I attach a photo of the error. The inscriptions are in my language, i.e. in Polish.

I have a desktop using Windows 7 and a laptop using Windows 10.

For some reason, a folder containing several bookmarked websites disappeared from my desktop bookmark side panel. That folder is on my laptop so all is not lost.

My question is which computer should I be at when pressing the synch button? I want the folder containing the websites to be on my desktop as well as my laptop.

With the latest update it appears that Firefox has disabled our ability to restore the old classic theme and UI in Firefox 89 and older using about:config, and the only alternative left is using alternative Firefox themes. Is there any theme out there that will allow me to have the white background for my bookmarks that was available in the past? I have tried TONS of themes and every single one of them has a dark bookmark background. And yes, I have also tried the ones that are supposedly able to give me the old classic look but they too have dark bookmark backgrounds. To make a long story short I can not find a single theme that has the light bookmark background and I do not know how to change the bookmark background or if the bookmark background can even be changed. All I know is the only theme with a white background is this sh***y looking theme that now comes with Firefox default settings. HELP!

When clicking on the three horizontal lines in the right hand corner, to see the next pane on bookmarks, history, etc,. I have to left click instead of just hovering and have the appropriate pane open to the left as works with Chrome. Is there a way I can get the next pane to open automatically without clicking?

Firefox home page is fine, however when a search topic is entered the resulting page results show the searched result is overlapped by the url for each result, A complete shutdown of Firefox will clear this overlapping but after a few hours of activity the overlapping reappears. I've included a screen shot of the issue. I've searched many forums for solutions but cant find anything helpful. thank you.JR

I've seen the answer to this on a couple of other Q&A posts, but just in case...

On the Edit Profile page, under Username, it lets you delete the existing name and type in your own. And a helpful instruction tells you permissible characters. But if you attempt save the change, you get an error message.

The other Q&A posts say that you can't, in fact, change your Username. If so, why doesn't the Edit Profile page say so? Why does it mislead you into attempting to change your Username?

Also, the note under the Username textbox says, "Keep in mind that your username is visible to the public." So, if your e-mail includes some form of your personal name, and that name becomes your username by default (which happened to me), and you never notice this, you get exposed (such as by posting a query here)? But in fact, the "Keep in mind..." instruction isn't fully true. As one of the other Q&A posts says, if you choose a display name (which is blank until you add one), your username is NOT exposed. But the Edit Profile page doesn't tell you this.

So, the whole Username portion of the Edit Profile page is very misleading. It needs to be clarified. And, when you sign up for Firefox, you should be given an opportunity to choose a unique username. Mine was forced on me in the background, apparently.

After installing a new firefox download, I cannot log in to investorvillage.com. The last time this happened, I somehow fixed it by clearing out everything I can find, but not this time. Either I have forgotten something, or something has changed. This does not happen with Chrome. Ideas?
