Often I have to fill our forms or answer questions on websites. I can fill in the form, but Firefox cannot activate the enter key. I have to start over in Chrome, which works fine.

I have had to change my default browser to Chrome temporarily due to this problem, but don't want to use Google's Chrome.

What settings change can I make to restore functionality?

can I disable console.log truncation?

While it is great for readability, but this is preventing me from extracting URLs if the string is too long.

I'm using a greasemonkey script to extract URLs from pages. The problem is not the code nor greasemonkey, it is when it logs a long URL string into the console log, it gets the truncated version (although clickable and goes to the right page) and if you copy the text or "Export Visible Nessage to", it will copy the truncated text instead of the full text, which those are now invalid URLs.

Is there a way I can disable this in the options? I tried going to the hamburger menu or the “...” on the devtools and couldn't find the option.

This problem has been reported over and over for over 3 years. Why should the solution be to turn off syncing?

In addition to preventing the problem from occurring, Firefox needs to provide a fix to eliminate duplicate bookmarks in bulk.

Hi.

I've been using Firefox for many years now and I always considerded it the absolute best browser. The last six months or so it doesn't work well on Facebook though. Pictures don't load as they should for example. It can work for a short time, but if i stayed on Facebook 15 minutes or so it always be problems. I have no idea what this is all about, but nowadays I have been forced to use Edge when I browse Facebook. Can anyone help me with this?

My computer almost feels like it's been infected with some sort of virus but from the other posts I understand that this is, for some reason, an issue where user control has become non-existent and that's how it was built. When I try any of the workarounds mentioned here I still have a choice between only gray and white for the background depending on what the theme is? I've tried both and many pages with the gray background open with red or green text and other sites with the white will show bright yellow text. I use Firefox for the outstanding privacy and speed and have for more that 10 years. Another reason was the control I had in making the page my own but that seems to have been taken away for some reason. Does anyone know how to actually regain that control without unsupported workarounds. Apparently the only actual choice is to install WIN11 (which has, once again, changed where menu items can be found and some disappeared altogether). Two miserable choices because someone thought forcing all pages to follow simple, but nonsensical rules. I've added a screenshot page from Ars Technica to illustrate. (I can't seem to add a link to the article without the long URL showing) The entire article is white text and simply disappears. What can I do to regain control?

Greetings.

I use AT&T Yahoo Mail with Firefox 98 on Windows 10 (latest build). So, I have noticed a very strange problem and I don't know who to blame. Yahoo or Mozilla.

I can't login to AT&T Yahoo Mail from several internet addresses.

I can get to the page but nothing happens when I click "Mail" or "Login." except that the connection failed. Everything else in Firefox works just fine on all sites, except this one (and it's "sister" login URL's.)

The sites are: mail.yahoo.com and currently.att.yahoo.com

I have tried everything that I can think of with no success. All works perfectly under Microsoft Edge. If I clear all history in Firefox the result is the same - no login.

Only a Firefox Reset will do - but I dare not clear all history!

Therefore:

Microsoft Edge and Firefox browsing to the above sites work just fine. When I click on the Mail Login hot spot in Microsoft Edge all is fine. When I click on the Mail Login hot spot in Firefox it tries connecting and fails. Have to do a Firefox Reset.

Any help appreciated. This is madness!

Thanks.

I updated FF and now my bank (Capital One) just yields blank pages once I log in. Nothing displays. I tried troubleshooting mode to no avail. It happens with other legit web pages too. How do I fix this? They display fine in Edge. Open H264 Video Codec and Widevine are my only two plugins. I tried disabling the tracker to no avail either.

I'm running on a high performance Win 10 PC.

When I download an attachment from my emails, why does it automatically download to my desktop when it opens? I think it all started when I did an update with Firefox? So all the attachments that I opened up all week are on my desktop, and I did not realize it :( I usually click on the arrow on the attachment I open it up in Adobe Reader, then if I want to save it to

the desktop, I do Save As.

I went to settings tried everything still on the desktop. Please tell me what to change, PLEASE!

I get a blank page when I try to go to the following site I've been using with Firefox for years: https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/home.html

My default browser is Firefox (now as always). My Firefox says it is up to date. This happened for the first time when I tried to go to that page yesterday. I've tried many times yesterday and today. I get a blank for ALL of the Air Canada pages I've tried. However, I can access all of those pages using Chrome.

My email address is [removed email from public]
