Start page when launching Private Windows doesn't respect 'new page' settings.

Hello.

I have my Home settings configured for:

Home Page and New Windows: Blank Page New Tabs: Blank Page.

When I launch Firefox in normal mode (non-Private), I get a blank page. Exactly what I configured it for.

When I launch a Private Window, I get a NON-blank page. Rather I get a promotional page for the Mozilla VPN with the banner "Get privacy protections everywhere you browse". This is not a blank page, it is a promotional page for a service I don't care to use. If I press the HOME button I get the blank page but private windows don't start that way.

Is there a way to configure Private Windows to open a blank page as I have it set for?

I checked 'about:config', search for "vpn" and "private" and disable 'promo' settings, reset the promo VPN links to "about:blank", hide the 'vpn banner' and so on but nothing gets rid of it.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

fb purity has been updated for Chrome and Edge and IE. the developer is waiting for Firefox to do the update. I use it and like it but it does not do all the things it does on other browsers because it is not updated. I think the developer of fb purity is waiting for firebox to update or give him the code or whatever you have to do to make it work. I like the extension but like i said It does not do what it does and when it removes on the other browsers .I like and have used Firefox for years and do not want to use any other browser So I am asking please allow this extension to update on Firefox. Thanks

Suddenly I can't log into some sites on Firefox. I'm 94.0.1. I'm on a Mac > Catalina. See images of error messages. I could not even get to this page on Firefox (I'm on Safari right now); Firefox said I needed to enable cookies and local storage. But cookies ARE enabled (I'm not sure how to enable local storage, or what that means). I created a test user, and downloaded Firefox and everything worked, but when I go back to my real user, I still have these problems.

Hello,

I set Swiss cows as my default search engine in Firefox ios browser. And for some reason I always get an error message “404 page not found” at Swiss cows when I do a quick search from Firefox. If I want to search now, I have to go to Swisscows first, then type in my search. I can’t do it from a Firefox tab. It wasn’t always doing this. Any tips on how to fix this? Thank you

I'm on an Mac Big Sur and after updating today to Firefox 94, the usual behavior of being able to click once in either the search bar or the URL block to select all the text is no longer functioning.

This is not a small inconvenience, but a major issue for me.

Do others on MacOS have this problem? Do others on other OS have it? I am assuming (hoping) that it's merely a key in about:config that's been flipped, but don't know for sure.

Any help is gratefully appreciated. Thanks.

Viewing code snippets on Slack is broken. I can view code on Microsoft.com fine, and Slack in Edge displays correctly. So, I don't know if it's a Slack or Firefox issue or some combination.

Found a post about checking the monospace font, but that seems fine.

Firefox 94.0.1 (up-to-date).

I've tried disabling all extensions.

So far i asked a handful questions here. Some are being replied while others are ignored. How do i get more attention on my questions and how is determined if they are important or not? support.mozilla.org behaves in a wired way here, it's not like a Forum. Im certain admins have full sight over all topics here while a normal user like me, feels pretty lost.

Why do some questions show the amount of views while others dont? -See attached screenshots https://i.postimg.cc/QtyPZ0Nh/1.png https://i.postimg.cc/q7QSjp9t/2.png

I am getting a four dot/pixel pattern (repeated across the screen/image) that appears across many - but not all - images and text in Firefox. Not present in other browsers. It follows the image/text when scrolling.

I am using FF91.3.0esr(64bit), a MacPro 5.1 on OS 10.13.6, ATI Radeon HD 5000 1024 MB feeding a 30" Apple Cinema Display. I see 'esr' means Extended Support Release - maybe I'm overextended?

Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

Attached are some samples...

Since I upgraded to version 94.0.1 I can no longer access games at shockwave.com, such as https://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/the-daily-snoop-a-hidden-object-game.jsp. All I get is the initial splash screen.

It does work on MS Edge and since I no longer have Adobe Flash installed on my computer that shouldn't be an issue.

I have also submited this question to Shockwave. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks.

I've used Firefox on this same Mac for several years without a problem. Suddenly, this morning, the browser stopped working. Since then, I've cleared cookies and cache, and uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Still, no matter the website I try to connect with, I get the same message, "Hmm. We're having trouble finding that site." According to Mozilla, my Mac OS, 10.14.6, is still supported. Help!

Links won't open. If I click on a link on one page (e.g. email) the link won't open. Even to get to this page from Firefox help I had to use Google.

Five days ago I installed a Firefox update. Since then, I have 2 problems that I cannot resolve. (1) Norton 360 icon is no longer available on my browser taskbar; I can still run scans and the Norton suite is enabled under "Manage Your Extensions"; but no way to access the password manager while browsing. (2) Facebook will not 'hold' any of my settings; I can set up the Facebook site as my Home page, but I have to log in to my Facebook page from there each time I open the browser; Facebook is not maintaining my game settings; however, scores and the like are being maintained; but, for instance, it is not retaining that I want music off; Facebook is not retaining any advertising settings either; if I check in 'Cookies and Site Data\Manage Data' it says I have not logged into Facebook for 5 days (I log in several times each day); Facebook is not listed under 'Manage Exceptions'.
