It only does when I set a site to always open in a specific container. Is it supposed work like this, or can I change this somehow? It is fairly inconvinient if I have to reassign every site to the right container every time I start Firefox. Thanks in advance.

Has anyone an idea of ​​the reasons why?

It is a followup of a previous question and your suggestions did not work. May be I did not explained myself. The issue is that everytime I launch Firefox a "google page" pops up asking me either to accept or to personalize the use of cookies and whatever I choose it is not “memorized” so that the following time I launch firefox it asks again the same question. (I have google as my default search engine and I have a google account). Thanks! Giulio

I have a local HTML file which executes some js functions to draw svg figure. The browser rendered the HTML well, and then I extracted the svg conent from console using console.log(document.getElementsByTagName('svg')[0].outerHTML) and save as "t.svg". I found there was a slight difference between figure in "t.svg" and the orignal HMTL rendered by browser. But when I redid these in chrome and ms edge, the "t.svg" and the HTML were exactly same.

example listen to one tab in the background while watching another in the foreground tab, in the same firefox window.

second thing: is there a about:config or add-on that gives a mute/unmute for each individual tab located inside the tab header of each tab like a speaker button mute or unmute for individual tabs?

I allow FF to save some passwords and some I do not want saved. The other day I was logging into a site where I do not want my password saved and FF filled in my user name and password. I didn't think I inadvertently saved it but it could happen. I checked the saved logins and it was there. I removed it. The next time I went to log in to that site FF again filled in my info. I went to the manage logins and it was not there, yet FF is still filling in the info. This is super annoying and inconvenient as I have multiple accounts for this site yet it wants to continue to use this one login. How do I get this issue fixed.

Unable to log into PNC.com Banking site using FIREFOX 93.0(64bit)

Today (10/11/2021) I attempted to log into my PNC bank website and was presented with an error which stated "Please try using another internet browser. If you still receive this message, please call the Customer Care Center at 1-800-xxx-xxxx and reference code: 18.e00c045.1633977763.15e95b74". I then did the following;

  • History > Clear Recent History > I then check everything and placed a check mark in all boxes to clear all items.

I then closed out my browser session and restarted my PC.

All was working about 3 days ago when I logged in using my existing FIREFOX browser which was running the same ver. 93.0 (64Bit). I then attempted to log in to the site again - https://www.pnc.com/en/personal-banking.html and received the same error message.

I took the advice of the error message and used Microsoft Edge to attempt to log in and WAS successful. This means I was typing my username and password in correctly.

I then called the 800 number for PNC website support and they had indicated that they did a website update this weekend.

Question is this. If the fact that PNC did a website update and FIREFOX came out with ver93.0 recently have anything to do with my not being able to utilize FIREFOX to access my PNC Bank Account. I have actually attempted to use both PNC logon pages and neither works. https://www.pnc.com/en/personal-banking.html < Does Not work> https://www.onlinebanking.pnc.com/alservlet/LogoutServlet <Does Not work>

Can anyone provide suggestions and/or does anyone know how to report a suspected bug in 93.0 that prevent PNC access?

Thank You, Butch

I purchased a new laptop and downloaded Firefox and logged in. The bookmarks loaded but the most of the icons/logos for the sites are not loading, I just have the generic internet globe icon. For the sake of room on the tool bar, most of my bookmarks are the logo only, no text, because the logo is sufficient to know what the bookmarks leads me to. I have rebooted and relaunched the website numerous times but no change. I read one of your articles with someone having the same or similar issue but the response was very confusing and didn't seem to address the real root cause. Please help me get this resolved.

The browser tools (not web developer tools) aren't opening. I could make a guess that it's because I exited my firefox session before closing the browser tools. I will say that now "Disable popup auto-hide" is always on. I wanted to customize the browser with userchrome.css and was doing a good job until I couldn't open the browser tools.

edit: I found out that when trying to open the browser tools 1 or sometimes 3 new processes run, but only for a few seconds.

I have run into a problem today where if i open a video into theater mode on youtube i can only click on the bottom half inch of the video, can click no-where else on the video itself.

this only happens if it open automatically in theater mode(due to cookies), if it openings into normal viewing it works fine, even if i expand it to theater mode, but the the next video i open up it happens again.

I have tried updating both firefox, windows drivers and graphics drivers, aswell as a hard refresh of firefox, still getting the same error.

Hi, my problem is straightforward, after it syncs my data videos stop working. What I tried at first when the problem appeared was clearing cookies, disabling add-ons, then creating a new profile, but I realized the problem only appeared after logging in, so I'm thinking maybe my synced data got corrupted somehow?

If so, what steps can I follow to tackle this problem?

Why does firefox keep archiving my email replies when I haven't even selected archive? I'll be typing along then, all of the sudden, it just archives the message I'm working on and prompts me that it has been archived? Is there a combination of keys that is doing this? I type really fast and I noticed this only happens when I type fast. I want to disable this feature, it is driving me nuts.
