Pocket is a fantastic idea - another essential element to support democracy.

However, some of the news articles are from websites like the NY Times and Washington Post which require accessors to SUBSCRIBE before being allowed to view the reporting content.

Even when you use the 2-second delay to hit ctrl-a and ctrl-c (select-all and copy) shortcuts, it is a nuisance and often requires repeat attempts.

SO, can the "wonderful brainiacs" of Moz/Firefox find alternative sources of the same content to avoid those sites requiring forced subscriptions?

I know this has been asked plenty of times but Firefox is running multiple processes to the point I don't want to use it anymore. I've done google searches on how to stop this problem and tried everything suggested but nothing works. Any ideas before I say adios to this slow crappy browser? I'm still using windows 7 but not for much longer.

Running v 60 ESR, downgraded from v 68, with zero problems for 3 weeks.

I've had this problem all of a sudden since last week. Steps I've taken so far:

  • Changed "security.tls.version.min" to 3 from 1 (didn't work)
  • Deleted cert8.db (didn't work)
  • Changed to Google DNS (not sure)
  • Changed to "auto-detect proxy" from "system proxy" (not sure, maybe)
  • Disabled IPV6 (not sure, maybe)
  • Turned off/on wifi hotspot, rebooted laptop (not sure, maybe)

The last 3 steps I took at the same time and they worked. On reboot the problem went away, albeit for 2 days!

It just came back, now it's performing a TLS handshake on about half the sites, with loading after 30-60 seconds or not at all. From searching, I see that solutions are all over the place on this and it's specific to FF. A post clearly identifies a Symantec certificates issue.

This is probably the toughest issue I've come across on FF.

I want wrote extension, that will open sidebar (with bookmarks) on New Tab, and close it on other tabs.

I make background script with next content: ``` browser.tabs.onActivated.addListener(function(tab){ if(tab.url=="about:newtab") browser.sidebarAction.open() else browser.sidebarAction.close() }) ``` And I get next error in console: `browser.sidebarAction is undefined`

Also I can see here that such actions "can only be called from inside the handler for a user action." Clicking the extension's browser action or page action.

And I want ensure whether tabs.onActivated event is a User action?

And if not, is there any ways or suggestions to go around this limitation?

After I resume Windows from sleep, the Whatsapp web app becomes very slow to type in, and the whole browser becomes sluggish as a whole while typing (like this one).

I noticed extra processes being created after each resume. I think it maxes to 2 processes, but I'm not sure at this point as it needs further testing. See the attached image.

Even though I previously deleted the Firefox account associated with my usual e-mail address, Firefox appears to remember this account. However, it does NOT remember the password associated with this account. If I want to reset the password, I am told via Firefox message that this entails possible loss of personal data, incl. bookmarks, which defeats the purpose of creating an account in the first place.

So I can neither re-create nor log in to this zombie account but have to use a different e-mail address in order to use Firefox account functionality.

Getting help in this situation without a working Firefox account is also next to impossible (without a Twitter account, at least), as I needed to get an account even to access the page from which I am writing this. Firefox browser feedback is also disabled, Firefox Facebook is paused.

If the above description is correct, then I guess the only help is a reworking of the Delete Account functionality.

NOTES:

  • This is not a case of forgotten password (I wrote it down on paper at the time) or wrongly-typed password (I copied and pasted the password string from Notepad when previous login attempts had been unsuccessful.)
  • The deletion of the previous account took place on 2019-01-08 and included confirmation "Account deleted successfully".
  • When I created a new account for a different e-mail address today, I was informed by Firefox that a Firefox account had previously been created from the same machine for a different e-mail address. So, not only does Firefox remember the e-mail address of an allegedly successfully deleted account but also the identity of the machine associated with that account.

How restore closed window-with-tabs into current multi-window session?

A few days ago, I accidentally closed 1 window (clicked the "X" in the upper-right corner) that had 248 tabs in it, without realizing it. Since then, I've 'properly' closed Firefox (Menu icon; Exit) and reopened it again many times. I have 3 other windows open in my current session, each with many-hundreds of tabs in them (one has 1335 tabs!).

Fortunately, I have an archived copy of my entire Profiles folder from a month ago. Saving aside my current sessionstore.jsonlz4 file, and substituting the month-old one into its place, then restarting Firefox, shows me that I still have that old 'lost' window there (with all 248 tabs intact), along with the other (old) 3 windows. But I've made a lot of changes to the tabs in those other 3 windows since I 'lost' the 4th one; so I can't just use that backup of all 4 windows, going forward now. I need to recover that 4th window, into my current session.

Is there some way to make a copy of one entire window (with all its contained tabs with their titles and URLs) from one session, close Firefox, then open a new Firefox session and 'paste' those contents into a new (empty) window?

I downloaded the "Copy All Tab Urls" Add-on (by Michele Pezza), which allows me to copy that one window's 248 'lost' tabs (titles and URLs) to my clipboard. Which is fine for pasting that list into a Word document. But I can't figure out how to 'paste' that list into a new Firefox window, as properly-configured individual tabs. Or, maybe there's some other solution?

I can't be the only one who's accidentally closed a big fat window inside a multi-window session, and gone too far from the event to simply restore the whole session from a backup. Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks in advance!

When my Firefox browser is open and I open a saved PDF file (previously converted and saved from a Word document) it opens in the browser as a Word document. Also, Word files open in the browser. I have changed the action from the content type in the General Section under Options to use my PDF and Word 16 applications. I noticed that the content type for Word is MS Word 1997-2003, which is pretty old and not sure why that would be the content in 2020. Could this be causing the issue? This is frustrating because I want to be working within the applications themselves and not in a Firefox tab. Attached is two screenshots of the Applications in the Options General section that show all the application options.

Using Firefox 83.0 on Windows 7 and Windows 10, no plugins or extensions installed.

  • I open a HTML page on server https://secure...
  • The page successfully loads lots of scripts and other resources from server https://deimos...
  • When using an XHR request to access an ODATA resource on https://deimos... the request is marked as "blocked" in DevTools, see screenshot
  • When hovering the "blocked" icon in the console, "blocked by DevTools" is displayed
  • The page works fine in Chromium based browsers (tested Edge, Chrome, Firefox)
  • The page works fine if it is hosted on https://deimos... instead of https://secure... (that's why I assume that it is some Cross-Origin issue)
  • The server provides Access-Control-* headers, see screenshot. The headers provided for the blocked XHR request are the same if I check them in the chromium based browsers.
  • There is no sign (like a pre-flight OPTIONS request) of the blocked request in the web server logs
  • Only requestr which use credentials are blocked. Other XHR-requests without credentials (like the one following the blocked request on the screenshot) seem to succeed.

I played around with the "Content-Security-Policy" meta tag in the document, with no success. For requests blocked by this policy, DevTools explicitly displayed the Content Security Policy as the reason for blocking the request.

I found lots of posts on the net concerning the Access-Control-Allow-Credentials header, also I found that for requests with credentials the Access-Control-Allow-Origin header must not return "*". IMHO those are correctly provided by my server.

Any idea of what is going wrong here? I can provide the link to access the page in a personal mail...

Kind regards Ted
