Every time firefox has updated this year it prevents me from signing into my Navy federal credit union account. I get the following error message; Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://signon.navyfederal.org/siteminderagent/forms/mfa.fcc" on this server.

Reference #18.82b3417.1697332724.50b30aec

I have had to turn off the ad blockers in the past and delete all the history including sign ins to get it to work again. This update I again went through all of that and also tried turning off every extension, turning off firefox tracking blocker and even reset the network setting to no proxy. Nothing works. Will I have to go back to using the google spyware browser just so I can do my banking? Or can this problem finally be fixed? If firefox worked with NFCU forten years prior without any difficulty I don't know why it cant be fixed.

I use Duck duck go as my default search engine. I've noticed that after the last couple of updates, the default has changed to Google. This has not happened before. There must be a bug somewhere that is causing this to happen in the new version of Firefox.

I'm using Manjaro Linux and I place Firefox in a particular position on the screen. In the previous version, just before 122.0, Firefox would "remember" the last position on the screen. Now when it starts up, the window is in the middle of the screen and not to the top left as when it was shut down. Anyone else notice this?

Sign In on Stackexchange Affiliated Websites After First Sign In

After I sign in on a Stackexchange affiliated website on Google chrome, I can then visit any other Stackexchange affiliated websites and I do not need to manually sign in. Google Chrome recognizes that I'm signed in on an SE affiliate and therefore, I'm presented a prompt that asks if I want to either: cancel the automatic sign in or join the community if I've never signed in before.

How can I do this on Firefox? Also, I would like to know how to do this because it creates a complicated situation when I need to suggest to a newer user that they should ask their question on a different affiliate. I mean, it seems kind of sketchy to tell someone to "create a new account but make sure to use the same username and password". Like, that's how password stealing scams work.

But with Google Chrome, it recognizes that SE sites are affiliated and so the username and password (or the cookie for the logged in session or whatever it is) is automatically and securely submitted to the other SE site without user input. There's less confusion and an extra layer of automatic verification that the user doesn't have to worry about. This follows the basic security practice of never submitting credentials after you're already signed in on Facebook or any other social media site — if you are already signed in to your account and you are requested to "sign in to facebook to continue" for example on another site or when opening a link, it should automatically sign you in when you refresh the page. If not, then it's likely a spoofed sign in dialog or cloned web page trying to steal your password.

At the very least, it should autofill if it is a legit sign in dialog. But Firefox does not do this on SE affiliated websites and we basically have to create individual accounts, with the same username and password, on each SE website. I literally have to click to create a new account or sign in, go through my settings, copy my saved password from another SE site and submit that with my email.

Lastly, this also applies to SE affiliates that don't have "stackexchange" in the URL such as Superuser and AskUbuntu. I can sign in on AskUbuntu and then when I go to Math Stackexchange or Superuser, I'm automatically signed in.

In the screenshots, you can see how there is the option to "join this community" when using Google Chrome. This option doesn't exist when using Firefox. After joining, there's an additional confirmation prompt that explains about automatic sign in, which also does not happen on Firefox.

Since this week I have been unable to access flightradar24 web site due to a problem with WebGL. It tells me that I need a compatible browser e.g. Firefox

I am running Linux Mint 21.3 Cinnamon on and I7 processor with a NVIDIA Corporation GK208B [GeForce GT 710] graphics card.

I have edited the about:config file as follows:

webgl.force_enabled TRUE

but noted a collection of failed messages as shown on the attached screen shot.

This web site is still accessible using chromium on the same computer, suggesting that there isn't a hardware problem.

Thanks

MY BANKING IS HANDLED THROUGH A CERTAIN CREDIT UNION. THE CREDIT UNION HAS SECURITY FEATURE THAT YOU ARE COMPROMISING BY RECORDING A SPECIFIC PAGE AS A BOOKMARK "post login script page's should never be eligible for automatic bookmarking to a home page." This should never be done as that page becomes a shortcut to my bank account! THIS CREATES A SECURITY ISSUE for me as I could be locked out of my bank account. Some sensitivity and a bit of common sense is called for here!

Additionally; I have an Amazon Account and want my bookmark FOR AMAZON to remain at The Sign-in page. However, you opt to delete my bookmark for an advertising bookmark that does not take me to an Amazon Login. This creates an inconvenience and a problem.

One more item: I do not use any on-line tax preparer. NEVER! I do not use Turbo-Tax, H&R Block, or any other tax preparation service. MY BOOKMARKS GET DELETED SO YOU CAN PLACE AN ADVERT ON MY HOME PAGE THAT IS NOT JUST UNWELCOME BUT A SERIOUS INCONVENIENCE.

Intermittent Master Password Recognition Issue with External Keyboard on Firefox for Ubuntu

Hello,

I've encountered a recurring issue with Firefox on Ubuntu where my master password is sporadically not recognized when typed using my external wireless keyboard. This problem does not occur consistently but is particularly frustrating when it does, as it forces me to switch to my laptop's keyboard for input. I'm certain the password is entered correctly; after multiple careful attempts (3-5 times), the issue persists, leading to unnecessary stress and inconvenience.

    • Environment:**

- **Operating System:** Latest version of Ubuntu - **Hardware:** Dell Latitude laptop with a Contour external wireless keyboard, connected through a Dell docking station. This setup is shared with another laptop (HP) via the docking station.

    • Observations:**

- The issue seems to occur sporadically and is not reproducible on demand, adding to the frustration. - It has happened notably on the first login attempt after the computer's first boot of the day. - On one occasion, the problem led me to change my master password under the mistaken belief it had been compromised.

    • Impact:**

This intermittent recognition issue disrupts my workflow and significantly affects my user experience with Firefox. The necessity to switch input methods and the initial misinterpretation of the problem as a security concern are particularly concerning.

I hope this detailed feedback assists in identifying and resolving the issue. Thank you for your attention to this matter Firefox.

Sincerely, Daniel

Hi,

I've been using the following in userChrome.css for many years

  1. menu_close { display: -moz-box !important; }

to restore "Close Tab" in the File menu, based on cor-el's response regarding restoring menu_bookmarkAllTabs here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/799856

This stopped working some time ago and I am finally getting around to asking why.

I do have toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets set to true, and other items in userChrome.css are working.

I am using 121.0 at home and 115.0 ESR at work and see the same (i.e. no "Close Tab"), in both cases on Debian testing. I do see this menu item when using the keyboard to open the File menu.

Any idea why this no longer works?

thank you, Greg

Sometimes I get notifications from Firefox which send me to "usefulcontentsite.com" (don't click this, might be harmful!) and when I click them, uBlock Origin blocks them. So I'm pretty certain that is spam (or worse). However, I could never attribute this to any page or maybe some harmful extension I have installed. Also, I mostly block site's requests for notifications.

Here is the list of installed add-ons: - ClearURLs (recommended by Mozilla) - Firefox Multi-Account Containers (official extension) - KeePassXC-Browser - uBlock Origin (recommended by Mozilla) - User-Agent Switcher and Manager (recommended by Mozilla)

So imo nothing exotic here.

Does anyone here have a clue where those notifications might come from?

I have a fresh Ubuntu 22.04 workstation running on a Xeon w5-3433 (16x 2.0-4.2GHz). I noticed that certain front-end heavy websites (e.g. chess.com) are extremely laggy & cause CPU usage to spike to the point that other processes (e.g. Spotify audio processing) hang for ~500 ms. Additionally, simple actions (opening a new tab, closing the ctrl-f search bar) also cause CPU spikes & hangs. This shouldn't be happening.

Thus far I have: 1) Switched snap channel to Firefox beta 2) Switched snap channel to Firefox nightly 3) Uninstalled the Firefox snap; reinstalled from the new Mozilla repo via apt 4) Cried, sobbed 5) Obtained turbostat info (interrupts spike from ~75k to >100k when actively using ff (e.g. mousing over website elements/having chess.com tab active/rendering); ff is open always). Here it is: https://pastebin.com/Q2ZCDC0t 6) Run the ff profiler on laggy tabs. Screenshot attached.

Help! I am perplexed. What's all this RefreshDriver stuff? How do I kill the jank?
