How do I keep Firefox from losing the internet connection just cause I don't want to close all the tabs I've had open the past week or so? I've tried clearing the cookies, and then reloading my open tabs, but it ends up losing the connection, just the browser itself. Other browser still works. Completely closing all tabs and restarting Firefox gets it working again, but dare I reload the previous session again, open all the tabs (acts like it's going to work), but then loses connection.

Hello, I've followed Firefox's invitation to install and update the browser on my Mac. Unfortunately the new version is not compatible with OS 10 El Capitan, my operating system, so now I can't use Firefox at all. How I do get the old version back?

Thank you, Lars

Hello Community.

I've selected an option to open PDF's in Firefox for preview. And if I wanted to download the PDF after preview, I simply clicked the downloab button from the preview app/tab. The files were downloaded with default filename and to the downloads folder without prompts. But since a while ago the dialog where the save location must be selected and filename given for the file opens up after the click of the download button.

How can I change it back to the previous behaviour without having to input filename and select the file download directory?

Certificate Based Authentication and SmartCard requirements

Hello,

We are using Firefox on macOS to access web services that require Certificate Based Authentication. Our certificates are stored on YubiKeys PIV slots.

If we plug the token, open Firefox and access the website, it works just fine. The Certificate picker is shown and the OS ask for the PIV PIN to validate the access.

However, if we do the request when the token isn't plugged, Firefox does not ask for it, the website deny the authentication and the context is kept in cache. Requesting again the web site with the token added in between does not restart the certificate lookup and we are forced to close Firefox or move to a private window to make it works.

What is the proper way to avoid this issue? Is it a known bug? Is there a way to configure Firefox to always show the certificate picker even if no certificate are found and then reload the list of certificate based on connections events?

Thanks

Unfortunately, I downloaded “SaveFrom.net Helper” without reviewing it.

Since downloading it I have been receiving a alerts from “McAfee WebAdvisor” about “dangerous pages blocked”.

I was able to remove the “SaveFrom.net Helper” add on in Firefox, but am unable to remove the “Savefrom.net Helper” bookmark tab which has high jacked my normal Firefox Bookmarks.

I can no longer easily see my Firefox Bookmarks and have to keep opening the Firefox Application Menu, then select Bookmarks, then select Manage Bookmarks in order to see my bookmarks.

Can you please advise how I can safely remove the “SaveFrom.net Helper” bookmark tab which has high jacked my Firefox Bookmarks.

Help continuously mentions something about clicking a "shield" to the left of the address bar, yet my up to date Firefox shows no "shield" anywhere i can find. Has an update obviated the need for it, and if so, do we have updated help files to reflect the new control for security, vpn and cookie usage?

When sharing a specific window in Google Meet, *ALL* popups from extensions will show on Google Meet

When using Google Meet, you are given the option to share your screen — either the entire screen, or a specific Firefox window.

I've noticed, however, that no matter what Firefox window is used, if you access an extension that creates a pop-up dialog, such as the Container selection button from Conex, the uBlock origin settings popup for each webpage, or a password manager pop-up such as Bitwarden, those popups will appear on the shared window, even if you decide to do this from another Firefox window altogether.

This is a major security concern for me, as I've had circumstances where the password entry window for Bitwarden will appear on any window, even if I open the extension pop-up from a window not being shared to Google Meet. I'm not sure where to submit this issue, so I'm starting from the Mozilla support page and going from there. Would appreciate anyone's help on getting this issue resolved. Thank you.

Crash? My Windows 10 tablet pro pop-up keyboard stops working for Hulu & YouTube so far. That's the main ones I'm on for that device. It won't keep popping up for me. Is there a way to be sure that Firefox messages always get to my main email? I want to be sure to get a notification, once someone can reply.

How to display different windows beside each other not on top of each other at bottom task bar but with Windows 10

I have the same problem as this person: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011006

but I have a windows 10 and the solution does not show up in the Taskbar settings. Is there an updated version for this? Here is the OPs original question.

"When I open a new Firefox window, it stacks it on top of all the others in the task bar at the bottom. I would like them to be BESIDE each other. It used to do that. Now I have to hover over the ONLY Firefox item on the bottom task bar and read the list to find the one I want to go to. This is a waste of time and tedious.

How can I change this?"

While using Yahoo email I tried to access the 'Notepad' page and get a message saying to Download a new version of Firefox to see the 'Calendar' even though I was trying for the 'Notepad' not the 'Calendar'. If I try for the 'Calendar' I initially get the small right-sidebar version fine but if I ask for the full page version I get the error message again. This does not happen if I access Yahoo through Chrome-browser. I have repeatedly done the download to no avail. (I have version 99.0.1). I am attaching a screenshot of the error message. Thanks for any help. No rush.

Firefox not compatible with some websites

Today I tried to place an online order to pickup from Texas Roadhouse, but no matter what time I chose a message said it was not available. The only selection that worked was "Earliest Available Time". Finally I called to place an order. Firefox worked 2 months ago but I don't recall which version I was using at the time.

Today I was using FF vers 97.x and later updated to vers 99.0.1 figuring that might be the problem, but it made no difference.

Later I tried Windows 10 Edge & that worked. Then tried a Chromebook & that also worked.

I've also had problems going to the Tracfone website & so have several other people. It's hit or miss with Firefox & usually it doesn't work. But Chrome or Edge seem to work for everyone.

Is this a website problem or a FF problem?
