During the week-end my email stopped sending emails. It asks for a password but even with a new password it will not send. I have worked with my email provider but all they can suggest is to contact you or to reinstall the email program. What can you suggest or is this enough information?

I'm using PAC file that returns SOCKS5 proxy, however in my Network Monitor I see actual IP addresses rather than proxified. This is contrary to what Chromium does and it makes no sense. I need to know which requests were successfully proxied.

Is there a ay to enforce it or as usual Firefox is 10 years behind Chrome?

I use Bomgar / Beyond Trust for remote support for my Linux system. The bomgar file that I download is a .desktop file. Ever since Firefox version 119, this file no longer downloads correctly. Instead of getting a .desktop file, I now get a .desktop.download file and the file will not run. This appears to be an issue with Firefox because the file downloads and runs correctly if I use Chrome. It also worked just fine in Firefox before version 119. Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated

Hi team,

Since March 18th, 2024, users have encountered latency issues when attempting to log in to ee.co.uk/shop, adversely affecting our company, Torry Harris Integration Solutions, and leading to significant revenue losses. While the issue persists, it's notable that users are experiencing smooth login operations on browsers like Chrome and Edge, suggesting a potential browser-specific compatibility or optimization problem. Immediate investigation into this disparity, along with addressing server overload, network congestion, or database performance issues, is critical to restoring seamless functionality across all browsers and mitigating revenue impact effectively.

Thanks Regards, Gaurav Kumar Torry Harris Integration Solutions.

Hello, i need help. If I create shortcut, and start firefox in another profile, like this:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -class FF2 --profile "C:\Users\mire\Desktop\TEST\Apps\Instagram" --no-remote instagram.com

And if i set in "user.js" --> user_pref("taskbar.grouping.useprofile", true);.

For some reason after firefox starts, or after second start, firefox icon on the taskbar turns into a private browsing icon!

I tried everything to prevent this, I tried to add:

user_pref("browser.privateWindowSeparation.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.privacySegmentation.windowSeparation.enabled", false);

Nothing works...

I checked million times that im not in private browsing, and i'm not.

Then, after some tests I found that if I remove the flag: "user_pref("taskbar.grouping.useprofile", true);" from 'user.js' and 'prefs.js', and start profile again, taskbar icon becomes normal firefox icon.

Is this a bug?

And what should i do if i want to have separate grouping for the PROFILE2, and i don't want to have that private browsing icon?

You can see in the picture what was happening...

When FF loaded for first time after update had message about being able to fill in PDF documents. Even said give it a try on a option block. Then it displayed a form with blanks to enter name etc. However I wasn't able to enter name or data in the fields they sent me for trying it out. I could do other things with PDF FF displayed, draw, add text box, but not enter data on the form they sent to try it out. Wish I had saved the PDF they sent to show the new feature.

Hello all. One of my 3 devices does not show up under the "connected devices" window. It's my Samsung A71 smartphone. It hasn't shown up for over 2 1/2 years. I have auto updates set up, I have sync set up, and I have checked settings. I don't know what else to check; I have been all over the place, checking. So, my question is this: how do I manually add it in? What happens after that, can I still sync it, but does that have to be manual, also? Much thanks.

For example this page, https://yle.fi/a/3-11868513 , causes my Firefox to go unresponsive for maybe 10-20 seconds at a time, when scrolling up and down. Windows works fine. It's not the only one, I have found some other on that same news site, which use the same kind of construct for a page that contains both video and text.

When I open Firefox in troubleshooting mode, page works fine. But in normal mode, even if I disable all my extensions (except search engines), page still hangs.

On the other hand, I haven't encountered this kind of behaviour in normal mode in any other pages or sites. So it may be something very spesific that site uses on those particular pages. So it is a minor problem but because disabling all extensions did not help, I thought it might be worth bringing up.

Is there a setting to avoid firefox swapping to new tabs, when ctrl-clicking search results in address bar?

Sometimes I want to search on multiple things through the address bar, but usually I search on google instead because every time I ctrl-click to open the searches, firefox automatically switches to that tab which means I have to swap back to the other tab, every time I open a new tab through the address bar.

It's only a problem in the search bar. Bookmarks and links on webpages open in new tabs, without swapping to those tabs.

I have accessed (Google) Youtube - History, over Firefox/DuckDuckGo for a number of years now without difficulty. Recently Google introduced a Two-step security check and, when selected, a question was sent to the handset (which I use as a tether for two laptops) which always quickly appeared and quickly responded to my finger's touch. In the last couple of weeks the question is still asked but nothing comes through to the handset, or the standby handset. For a test I then went through Google Chrome and that opens the Youtube History without any questions etc. It seems to hint that Google are using the Two-step etc to keep out access over other Browsers. I am based in the UK. All suggestions will be welcome. Kind regards, Tim Simpson

on the 16th of March, I lost my backpack which had a large number of irreplacible values on a train. One that is replaceable was my laptop that I use a lot with firefox.

IS it possible to find the location of my laptop via Firefox?

A setting that shows recent login activity? Anything at all! IP addresses, A website that was opened in a location? Maybe someone found my laptop and for whatever reason, opened my browser. The only browsers I have are Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

If you have any knowledge about finding the location of a laptop beyond using Firefox, I would greatly greatly appreciate any advice or any knowledge you could share with me that I could try. Laptop uses Windows 11.

My life feels like it is ruined since I lost this backpack. It could be in the train still, it could be waiting to be registered at a lost and found department, it could also be in the hands of someone else. I had around 5 or 6 photo albums in this bag :(
