Any chromium-based browser opens links from google search result in a new tab directly, but firefox (and Tor too) opens them with an address as "https://www.google.com/url?sa=..." and further redirects to actual link's address.

Sample: firefox: 1. Search in google: funny cats 2. Click cmd+mouse on result #3 with link "www.funnyawesomecats.com" 3. New tab opens with address like "https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=..." 4. After some delay page redirects to actual link "www.funnyawesomecats.com"

In contrast, any Chromium browser opens links in a new tab directly without intermediate redirection. Also, Firefox open links from a google search directly (i.e. without any issue) only on the current search page, but not on a new tab.

How can I exclude `http://domain.com` part from URL column? The urls I'm working with look like this `http://domain.com/path/to/resource` `http://domain.com/another/path/to/resource` So `http://domain.com` part takes too much space in URL column, but displaying just File column is not informative in this case.

I have no idea what's happened with this update, but it is beyond broken. Even in troubleshooting mode with everything turned off, pages take forever to load, everything is terribly slow, it's cyclical like something is updating in the background, but it's happening on every single page and it's taken any productivity to a standstill. It has only started happening with this update. Didn't happen prior to this. It's obviously not my extensions since they're all disabled in troubleshooting mode, there's nothing out of the ordinary showing in the task manager, I thought it might be when my Gmail tab updates, but even with that tab closed, it's still ongoing. I can't work like this. Is there a way to revert to the previous iteration until the next update comes through?

P.S. I have tried temporarily disabling the extension and while disabled it works, but I don't want to have to enable and disable the extension every so often.

Recently returned to Firefox after using Brave for around 6 months.

I have a pinned tab with my Gmail inbox (logged in and active). My Preferences are configured like this:

  • Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: Enabled
  • Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: Manage exceptions: "https://mail.google.com" & "http://mail.google.com"
  • History: Firefox will "Remember history"

(See attached screenshot)

With my Gmail tab active, when I close Firefox and reopen I expect my Gmail tab to be active but I have to login again everytime. When I used Firefox previously (before my Brave stint) I know that I managed to successfully configure Firefox to allow this. Any help would be appreciated.

PS. I do not have the Multi-Account Containers add-on active.

I'm using Firefox 95.0 64-bit on a Windows 10 computer. The only add-on I've installed is Firefox Color.

Twice in the last week while I've been using Firefox, after it's been working normally, suddenly any clicked link opens in a new window instead of in the same tab as it should. (Note: I have "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" selected in Settings, but it shouldn't apply because I wasn't holding down the Ctrl key when I clicked.)

I quit the browser and when I started it again, it would only open in Safe mode, with a dialog box that included the option Open and Restore. The first time this problem happened I selected Restore, but I still had the problem.

I fixed the problem by downloading and running the FIrefox installer. This solution has worked both times. But I'm concerned that the problem has recurred. What might be causing it? How do I prevent it from happening again?

A site that my company must use daily and frequently for work routinely stops working for everyone who uses Firefox and we get "DOMException: The quota has been exceeded" errors in the console.

Closing and relaunching Firefox usually resolves this temporarily.

I have tried adjusting dom.storage.default_quota but even at hundreds of MB I still sometimes get the error.

The site vendor seems stumped and after weeks back and forth with development are now telling me to use Chrome :( Other Firefox users have been making noise on their product forums but we haven't seen any solutions yet.

I see some bugs in Bugzilla from about a year ago that seem related but it doesn't seem like they are actively being worked. Will there be a long term solution to this?

A recent breach might explain why I have about 600+ spam emails this month. Plus an unusual number missed by Gmail's usually pretty good filter.

The main problem is with Gravatar (www.gravatar.com), somehow associated with WordPress.com. ?? It doesn't seem to allow changes to either email address or password, unless I overlooked something... Options available are to Hide and/or Close the account, and I did both. Trying to sign in again still shows my email addy, so I'm not sure that it has been resolved quite yet. Oh and.. There I can change the email address, but there's no point in being spammed all over again from a different direction.

Less of a problem is the 500px site. Some nice photographs in there, but I haven't visited in years (probably). My account there has been deactivated, in the meantime, and, judging by the amount of spam until the last month or so, I'd guess that one is resolved. And, btw.. I do use unique passwords.

I'm actually very grateful for this service. I'm just not sure I managed to fix either breach. The other thing is that Gmail places the notifications under Promotions tab instead of Primary or Updates tabs. Not sure what I can do to fix that....

Many Thanks,

Colin.

P.S. Please make it easier to find how to EDIT posts.

Hi, I have got an issue concerning switching tabs. Thus, here is the thing: I work with multiple tabs, and if I open a new tab (Firefox home), start typing and when you have to switch tabs by ctrl+tab so you do it, a text in a new tab text always will be selected. Seems like no problem, however, If I accidentally press keys (except for arrow keys), all search text will disappear right away. Arrow keys only can move a cursor. Therefore, it is just annoying because you always wanna press arrow keys.

Sorry for my English but I hope you got it rightly.

Until a couple of days ago, Firefox was allowing Twitter's push notifications was workibg fine. Even now, I can see replies to my posts, but now notices of new posts by persons I selected are no longer coming through.

I tried to fix this by going to Settings>Privacy & Security>Permissions>Notifications and removing Twitter from the list, then resetting Push Notifications in Twitter under Settings>Notifications>Preferences>Push Notifications, only to be told "Unsupported browser. It looks like your browser doesn’t support push notifications."

I've looked at previous listings under this subject, but none of them have been helpful.
