As per this issue I reported a while back, I was experiencing odd issue with automatic redirect to HTTPS for some private development sites.

I finally found a fix for the issue. The problem appears to be with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials Extension which apparently *may automatically redirect to the http site. In order to prevent this, I added my development sites to 'Unprotected Sites' and this prevented DuckDuckGo from doing the automatic redirect to https.

  • - Odd thing is that I had multiple domains pointing to the same web instance and only one of the domains was having this issue with the DDG extension. Both were going to the same IP through a HTTP proxy. The proxy and web server were not the issue. This symptom points to an maybe an issue in Firefox....

In summary, be wary of odd redirects and the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension if you are doing web development work.

I'm struggling to get Firefox to use `http` instead of `https` when I'm doing development on my laptop. Playing with the `HTTPS-only` in the settings didn't make difference. With enable or not. I tried to add my `localhost` to exception list, but Firefox still tries to use `https.`

I understand the security concern from Firefox team, but if I'm trying to load by typing `http,` I would appreciate if Firefox gave me a benefit of doubt that I know what I'm doing. Maybe I could disable this feature temporarily. Why force `https` on `localhost`?

Please allow us some flexibility.

I would like to enable picture-in-picture without constantly having a popup for it anytime my cursor goes onto the video screen. You could just put a button somewhere out of the way. It's so annoying I have to just disable it, and that's not right. Nobody needs popups of any kind for anything ever. It's the same as an ad.

I installed an extension from a website(not from addons.mozilla.org) and found it a bit suspicious so after around using it for 1 minute immediately removed it... So will an extension be able to access root/admin permissions if it had some malicious script executed(I am using debian) or can extension access system files,modify,delete or install/download anything without the users' permission?

Thanks in advance AVC

Hi,

is there a config option to prevent the showing of user/pw proposals when opening a website for which user account data is saved? When i'm logging into a website with already saved user data, i get account proposals (as ff saves the data "per domain", say if you have 3 accounts to one website, e.g. a test user, an administrator and a cms administrator, they are all presented where needed content may be...) see pict. I would like to opt out this behavior, as i have more than one website with 2 or more accounts.

I was using Ctrl+K on some websites to do things like site-specific search, task bars, and so forth, but recently Firefox started capturing it for focusing on the search/address bar (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly#w_search).

Is there a way to unbind `Ctrl+K` in Firefox?

Greetings, I would like to know how would one go about recording FPS using new Firefox profiler tool? I am coming from chrome, where it is one of the lines in the resulting graph after recording is finished but after intense googling and trying to hover over everything in the profiler I am yet to find it here. I suspect that I am missing something obvious here. I found many old showcases where it was clearly present right in the inspect window which doesn't seem to be the case now. I attached the picture of precisely what I need(from the old firefox version)

Thanks in advance!

There is a specific challenge that i am facing with Firefox and some of the solutions that i have tried is not helping me to resolve the issue.

What's the issue: There are double spaces issue in Firefox

Where is it : 1) Menu 1.1) It's in the Menu New Tab is seen to me as New Tab (more spaces are for demonstration only) 1.2) All the Menu items which have space are show with more then one space including

  1.2.1) File Menu -> New   Window (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
  1.2.2) Edit Menu -> Select     All (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
  1.2.3) View-> Page     Style (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
   1.2.4) All the rest of the menus where ever there is a space there is a double space

2) URL : I type something in the URL and they are double spaced "this is test" will look like "this is test"

   THIS URL looks to be double spaced on firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1338204?page=2
   like below

3) Numbers in the browser :

   Any number displayed is double spaced in the browser output (most of the times, most of the web pages)
   
   

4) Bookmarks : All bookmarks are double spaced

5) Settings:

Settings: I have tried some suggestions below and they did not work for me.

browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled is still set to false but seems to have no effect toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets=true browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled=false


6) Reference: I have tried some suggestions below and they did not work for me.

Got sick and tired of having to enter payment card info every time, so I decided to RTFM and follow instructions. I worked my way thru all the instructions on found on the forum pages, and was entering the information via about:config, and got to the popup where I was asked to confirm, and clicked the button, then clicked it harder, but nothing happened.

My guess is that my Firefox and/or my Leap15.3 installation has left some file permission read-only and Firefox is unable to save this bit of data, but I really don't want to run Firefox as root. I can say more, but I see there are more boxes to fill.

So, I included a screenshot of what I hope will be the useful part of my config file.

The problem is : Some of the time FF just records 0 bytes file and says nothing. I suspect that FF inspect the URL of the links and discard ( perhaps for security reason ) ones that do not begin with HTTP.

The bypass is : One has to copy the link and insert in in the new page of FF.

The solution would be to change FF code.

Thank you.

This has happened to me on 3 different computers.

Today, I installed Modicia linux operating system on a new computer. Then, I installed Firefox browser. I logged into Firefox the normal way and all my book marks and passwords etc... were imported into the browser, but when I clicked the "Home" button, my customized home page was gone. There were just a couple buttons pre-configured to whatever the default thing is showing twitter and 2 or 3 other buttons, but not what I had spent 3 hours configuring on my other computers. This has only happened on a new install of Firefox.

When I went back to my old computer and started Firefox, they were all gone!!! All of them. How do I get them back without programming each individual button all over again? The picture shows what it looks like NOW. Before installing Firefox on this new computer, all 32 buttons on my home page were individually configured with URLs and custom icons. Walt

Now on Firefox 100.0.1 On earlier versions of Firefox I was able to set a particular url for my home(opening) page. That is still true. However, on past versions I was also able to make *my home page* appear on every tab I opened. On the current edition I get a choice of only Firefox Home Page (default) or Blank page. I cannot get my home page on the new tab. How can I bypass the restrictions of the settings under Home to get my home page on every tab?

That the question I need an answer to. Everything below this is explanation of why I want this and a complaint about how Firefox changes things that I would appreciate being passed on to the developers.

                                                                    <---------------------->

If I choose Firefox Home Page (default), I am *forced* to use the address box to put in my search terms. I have become accustomed to the various search engines with their splash screens - with the nice big search box in the middle of the screen (both horizontally and vertically). It is absolutely unnerving to me to try to type in the box in the middle and have nothing show up there but up above in the address box.

I am a project person in a multi-tasking world, which means whether I like it or not, I have to multitask too. For me to do this successfully, all my tools need to be where I expect and perform as I expect them. Even putting duckduckgo.com in the current home page/new window setting, doesn't get the duckduckgo splash page, but even though I'm not that technically advanced, I found a way of getting it in my home page window. However, the tabs section doesn't offer me an opportunity to put my own choice in.

I wish Firefox would stop tinkering with otherwise minor things. I understand fixing found vulnerabilities. I understand providing new services and technology when they're developed. But why force people to use search and tabs the way Firefox wants them to rather than the way the user is accustomed to.

Hi all. I've been having a problem with Firefox (version 100.0) where the entire "Forms and Autofill" section is missing from the Settings page (the Privacy... page). And of course since that's missing, the corresponding features don't work either. Specifically, I'm trying to get the browser to save my address and credit card info.

I've dug into this quite a bit with no luck. I've tried disabling all extensions. I believe it's supposed to work with native functionality and not require an extension.

I've looked at these articles:

https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1220110 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1315704 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1324732 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-doesnt-save-web-form-entries https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/automatically-fill-your-address-web-forms https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Features/Form_Autofill

...which led me to verify that these settings are set correctly in about:config :

dom.forms.autocomplete.formautofill = true extensions.formautofill.available = on extensions.formautofill.creditCards.supported = on extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available = true extensions.formautofill.creditCards.enabled = true extensions.formautofill.creditCards.supportedCountries = US,CA,GB,FR,DE (I'm in the US) extensions.formautofill.addresses.supported = on extensions.formautofill.addresses.enabled = true extensions.formautofill.addresses.supportedCountries = US,CA extensions.formautofill.creditCards.hideui = false

The "about:policies#active" page says "The Enterprise Policies service is inactive", which I believe is the correct response.

The "Remember search and form history" setting is enabled.

On "about:support", the "Internationalization & Localization" items are all set to "en-US".

I don't know what else to look for. Very aggravating. Does anyone know how to make this work? It was working for me under Mint just a week ago, but I just switched to Manjaro in the last few days and I'd certainly like to avoid wiping my machine clean again.

Thanks for your help.
