The firefox browser does not prompt to select a valid user client authentication certificate (stored in the Windows cert store under Personal User certs) for access to sites. This means the browser can not be used for certificate based MFA.

Changing the browser to use system certs (security.enterprise_roots.enabled = True) does not help resolve the issue

In recent version Firefox blocks all popups in the private mode even on sites, where I have popups enabled in normal mode. I am pretty sure it is a new behavior. Popups can be enabled even in private mode, but it is not saved. In some earlier version Firefox in the private mode used to apply popup settings from both private and normal mode. Is there any way to get this behaviour back except downgrade ?

Hi I got a problem which I think is caused by Firefox/Facebook.

Sometimes (quite often) when I'm in Facebook and scrolling down, suddenly Facebook starts to scroll on its own and then the cursor starts flickering. The only way to correct this is to restart the computer. Very often when i log in for the first time afters such a restart all my desktop icons are shown wide apart, and the I have to logoff/logon again. Then it works until the next time.

I have switched the hardware acceleration of in Firefox with the same result.

Acctually, it happend right now, and now I don't have Facebook open.

If I can't fix it i have to stop using Firefox!

In Twitter, when I use the Copy link to Tweet button and then try to paste the link to share in Gmail it fails to show (it is there, but invisible). If I copy the link into another document and then redo cut and paste into Gmail it works OK. It is Firefox specific and something to do with the ?s=20 part of the link... if I change the 20 to 21 then it works fine. And if I copy the link in Edge it works fine. Can anyone help? Thanks

Hi,

Due to issues with a windows update, my computer went through 2 clean installs recently. After the first one, I was able to download Firefox, log in, and sync all my previous extensions and bookmarks. However, after the second clean install, I just logged into Firefox and it did not bring up any of my previous bookmarks or extensions. Where did they go? How can I get them back?

Please help. Thanks,

Hi there, I'm using xero which works great in firefox except for the "projects" option. It works fine if I use another browser, but if I click on projects within xero while using firefox it simply doesn't load. I've done a log me in session with xero help and they tell me that everything is fine from their end so it must be a problem/block within firefox (surprise surprise - "not our problem"). It was working fine up until about 6 weeks ago. Anyone else come across this? It's a pain as firefox is my preferred browser but I have to use another browser to get full functionality out of xero. Thanks in advance!

Which version of Firefox do I have to revert to that will allow me to put tabs under the address bar and not have tabs the same colour as the menu bar? I had the current version of Firefox installed, but after doing a Windows reset to the 20H2 version of Windows 10, the even newer version seems to be less customisable.

Hi,

I wanted to check my historic but I couldn't access it. I first thought it had disappeared or something but it seems that the "show historic" button is actually hidden by my task bar. Or, in other words, the tab is too long.

I can't find anything in the setting to change it.

Thanks in advance if you know how to solve this problem.

Hi there,

I wanted to sync my reading list via Pocket between multiple devices. On my iOS devices, this works fine but I cannot enable Pocket for Firefox on my Windows laptop. In about:config the setting for extensions.pocket.enabled is set false and is greyed out, so I cannot change it. I checked about:profiles and found two profiles, one in root and one in local directory. The one in the root directory has a prefs.js file, where extensions.pocket.enabled is apparently set to true (contrary to what is said in about:config).

I have done some googling but couldn't figure out why I cannot change the setting in about:config. I would very much appreciate your help. My laptop has Windows 10 and Firefox is of version 87.0. The laptop has an enterprise environment, so maybe some app or default setting is blocking the settings. However, I don't know what to look for, but I am granted admin rights to make changes if necessary.

Many thanks in advance.

Best, Nicolas

Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks

Now, this might have been resolved already or there is a easy solution and I just dont know. But, everytime I use my Laptop in Tablet Mode the OSK will appear for a second upon hitting a Box in which Text can be written. However, it will close after a second.

I already tried turning off ".osk.detect_physical_keyboard" and on again. it didnt change Anything. Nor did changing Settings in the WIndos Settings itself.

can anyone help me with this Issue? It is really annoying and doesnt make Firefox a good option as my standard browser.
