Since the new update with the change in cookie management, login at my school is not working. We use a number of different sites that pull from the Stanford login cookies. For example stanfordhealthcare.cloud-cme.com uses my login.stanford.edu cookie to function, and so it no longer functions and login is impossible.

I know the new system has a bypass built in for known login services, but what about the myriad different independent SSO systems used by schools?

I can no longer see header images on certain pages or on my twitter background using Firefox. I switched my browser over to Safari and they were there. I refreshed Firefox, rebooted my computer. No change. So how can I fix this problem?

Hi, I just got a new laptop and don't have access to the old one. I thought that my bookmarks in Firefox would sync to my new laptop but they did not. I tried clicking on my profile image in the right corner and clicking sync but it didn't do anything. Is there any way to force a sync?

I just sent an e-mail to someone at a company that handles my finances and I immediately got an ad in my Yahoo mail from a company called BeenVerified asking if I wanted to know more information about the person I sent the e-mail to. This is very unsettling. I don't know if it is really related to Firefox, or Yahoo Mail, or the fact that I had an account with BeenVerified in the recent past which I cancelled sometime back.

Is there a possibility that the security settings within Firefox can be changed to stop such a thing?

Thank you for your time!!!

Alan

hello, i searched a bit and refreshed FF, started in FF in safe mode(currently in safe mode), shifted to work offline then shifted back, as possible solutions. No proxy is selected in network preferences. All that did was make it so whatsmyip.com now says no proxy when it said proxy in use before. it's showing las vegas as my location this time. My real location is hawaii and all my other browsers show this. The "problem" is months old. I have to verify that im not a robot regularly, and certain sites give an error 403, (iirc), but work fine with safari because it isn't using a proxy. Is it possible there is some sort of malware causing this? mac os10.12.6 FF88.0.1 (64bit)

It would be nice to not have the little resize grabber icon/control in the bottom right corner of the screen when in Responsive Design Mode as it shows in screen shots. It doesn't seem like it is possible to hide it or have it not show in screen shots. Is there a way? If so, how? If not, what is the best way to get a feature request in front of Moz devs?

I am stuck in dark mode and can not disable it. I can't read anything. It's broken. I dug into all the preferences. Most help topics dealing with this are for newer OS versions or Windows. I'm using OS 10.12.6 I installed some theme and it made the background black. With brown text...Very handy for reading.

is it possible to configure all new tabs in v89 to be the same as my homepage, which in my case is Google.com? I don't like the Firefox home because when you start to enter a search, you get thus list of visited websites etc ... which is very annoying and gets in the way of my work (not all search methodologies are the same).

Patrick thank you

Update question: Today I got an update window and I tapped Do Not Install but apparently it did anyway. Now my open tab handles are not delineated like they were, the typeface on them is harder to read, general appearance things that don't seem to be controllable in preferences.

Is Firefox going to issue an update fix to correct the problem with not being able to G-mail after the update occurred? I am not tech savvy so if it is something process i have to figure out I guess I will need to switch to Safari. i don't want to do that as I have been with Firefox almost since it started.

After this update to 89, page I'm on magnifies to 500% without warning. This keeps happening and I don't know what I'm doing to make it happen. Very frustrating when you're playing online bridge and suddenly, you can't see the cards. How do I fix this? ( yes, I can go to view and revert to normal. But why do I have to do this at all?)

Subject says it all. "How to revert to 'browser.tabs.ontop=false' functionality in Firefox 89.x?" I hate the Proton layout where tabs are now positioned at the top. I want to revert to what I had before — via an add-on, I think — because the new style creates visual dissonance. I HATE the new style. I want a layout that does not do my head in. I do not care that someone(s) in the development team thinks tabs.ontop is better; it is not better for me.

New theme is absolutely not contrasting. The font merges with the background, no separators are visible between the elements, although the tabs opposite are separated from the page. And a huge number of other annoying little things. You suggest choosing a different theme, but there are the same problems and an additional annoying background pattern.

Please make it possible to return to the classic theme and stop changing the interface and familiar controls. I am shaking from every update notification, because i expect everything will break again.

I also advise you to read reviews on news sites dedicated to this update. Many people unhappy with these changes.

I found a partial solution (about: config -> browser.proton.enabled -> FALSE ) problem, but as it became known, it will soon stop working.

I understand that FireFox a free product and I would shut up, but it upsets me that the tool that I have been using almost all my life has gone bad. And second, and even worse, the Internet is increasingly dominated by Chrome, remaining without competition.

NY Times now won't load images (there's now a hold-to-see button; image & headlines vanish when you let go) on either side of the firewall & YouTube blacks out their link icons & the right column recommended / loaded-for-sequence play videos on the right column whether you're signed-in or not. Background images are now blacked out on some sites. None of this ever happened to me until I upgraded to FF 89.

Why is this? How do I stop it?

The array of Mac settings, FF settings, site settings is dizzying as we all know, which makes sorting out where the problem might lie a bear w/o help. Things worked great through 88. I allowed FF entree to simply install each new version. No prob. Now this. 89 is clearly a complete overhaul -- I've seen scores of comments from folks left aghast at these changes with no clear, comprehensive tutorial of 1) what exactly FF did & changed, 2) why FF did it & most importantly, 3) how to return which sections / settings to what you wanted & felt comfy with & which you're just stuck getting used to. Configuration ability is a huge aspect of computer living. That FF info alone would have lessened the heat I'm afraid you've been taking.

Anyway, back to mine... any clue as to how to reset whatever it is that needs resetting to drop this blockage? Many thanks for the assist!

Hi,

since the latest version of Firefox I have a problem that tabs are not going to be restored when closing just the window. On Mac closing the window means pressing the red bulb in the top left corner, which actually keeps Firefox running in the background. I know that it was different in previous versions. There the last open tabs were reopened when creating a new first window. Now sessions are only restored when Firefox is shutdown explicitly (CMD+Q) and then restarted. Option for session restore is set. I tried to fix that by using the addon Tab Session Manager, however, this is not the behavior I'm used to. I also deleted my old profile (all my urls, etc. are gone now ... :( ), no effect.

Anyone know if something has changed for sessions? Or is it just me having such a problem?

Regards, Thomas

Lately (as of which version, I'm not sure), I've been noticing that if I enter a URL in the address bar of a tab that already has a page open, instead of going to the new URL I entered, Firefox will refresh the current page instead. This happens A LOT and is pretty annoying. Wondering if this happens to anyone else.
