I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.

Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.

(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.

"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."

Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.

Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.

Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.

Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.

Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?


To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.

A few days ago, whenever I download an attachment from my email(Yahoo), the tab crashes after I do so. Assuming this is a Frefox issue....but not positive...has happened repeatedly since. Very annoying.

Also, upon restart of Firefox yesterday, all my cookies were reset automatically. Had to re-log in everywhere. This never has happened before, without out me manually doing this.

Any idea what is going on?

Hi support team,

I have met this issue twice. Before I retired my old PC, I did click the "sync now". However, when I login in Firefox in my new PC, I found the bookmarks are very very out of date. Because my old PC was formatted, I lost my latest bookmarks in Firefox.

Could you help with this?

I can't stand Microsoft Edge. It's a CPU and memory hog. However, I must resort to using it when I watch a video from VUDU on any of my workstations. According to the fine folks at VUDU, Firefox is not supported in HDX or 1080i mode when using the VUDU site. According to the info that shows when you launch VUDU on a Windows device (in this case, Windows 10 or Windows 11) using Firefox, you get a message that the video is only supported in SD or 720 dpi mode. To get anything above SD mode, you have to use Microsoft Edge. Is there a developmental issue preventing such use or is this a limitation forced on Firefox users because Microsoft does want you using anything but Edge?

It's just a bit frustrated to have to use MS Edge instead of my default browser, Firefox. For the record, I just checked to be sure. There's a marked difference in resolution between Firefox and Edge on the same video.

How to make FF refresh proxy settings from command line/script?

I configured my Windows 10 Firefox proxy to use system proxy settings, and I have a script can based on different network environment modify the system proxy autoconfiguration script address (HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL) in registry to update the proxy settings. Internet Explorer works well - new proxy configuration usually become effective in 1 or 2 minutes after the change. However, each time after my script changes the registry proxy address (without FF restart), I have to go to Firefox Tools->Settings->Proxy to manually change it to another value (in my case it's from "Use system proxy settings" to any other value), confirm it, and then change it back. Then FF is able to reload the autoconfiguration script to make it work. This is really a headache.

I just wonder is there a way to notify FF to reload the proxy autoconfiguration script address from registry from command line so that my script can trigger it automatically after the registry is modified?

Thanks.

GCI.com is a service provider in my area. I have only an Email account with them. At the Login of my Email account,the Firefox Browser 'displays an extra old w98 pane .' This is at the Secure Log In where you enter your Web Mail Pass Word. If the Password has been saved with Firefox - the 'Mouse click selection of the Account (User Name)_ drifts horizontally along this Panes edge.

I contacted GCI support,and they simply suggested that I use 'Chrome,or Microsofts Edge Browser. I cannot prevent high band Videos with those Browsers on this Windows 10 computer. I simply do not know what is being 'Allowed with them,and what is not. Typically I utilize a 'Hot Spot with this Internet Connection,and do not have Data Band in a months allotment. So my Browsing is conservative. My phone is a non-contract ATT paygo phone. Do with this most itenarant is out of the way for Troubleshooting.

I have Photos of the GCI.com Web Site interaction,and I have the 'HTML code from the GCI.Com secure sign on Web Page. As it looks while loaded and interacting. Which I will add here.

 - I have loaded the Web Site from different machines W10. 
       [ ]Same result occured
- I have considered reinstalling the Firefox Browser (until above).
- Right now I am considering a Code Problem. And what approach to take.

[ ] It would be simple for the Firefox support to simply load the Firefox Browser,while visiting the GCI.com Website,Email Login. And view if at your Location,the situation occurs for the Firefox Troubleshooting Team. If this does not occur at other persons Frequent with their own Firefox Browser. I do not know what I will do.Or reason this would occur only on my Firefox instalation.Or my location .

Upload A PDF File To Firefox Troubleshooting

[ ] Im aware of all the Security Problems with todays Internet. I was certain I could see the HTML 'frame within the Web Site Code,But cannot see a way to Upload the PDF File at this writing.

[ ] I'll note that upon Entry Of a Saved Password,this Window will Drift the Entry on the Vertical Bar. Im discussing. I have not selected this Drifting password,along this Vertical axis bar at this Extra Pane.

(Firefox 102 on Windows.)

Indicating the progress of a runnig download in the taskbar is ok, but when the size of the download is unknown, there is a fast animation, that keeps going and going and going. That´s very annoying, when you want to keep focused on a difficult issue elsewhere on the screen. (Sadly I have these 'endless' and slow downloads quite often at work - e.g. github.)

How can this animation be disabled?

I would happily lose the normal download progress if only this fast animation disappears.

In about:config I did not find anything applicable when searching for 'download', 'animate', 'progress' or 'taskbar'.

Specifically within the Firefox browser, I cannot access Reddit.com or other affiliate links. I am just getting a completely white screen, doesn't even say "Blocked". However I can visit Reddit in other browsers, with or without a VPN, while a VPN doesn't even change the outcome within the Firefox browser.

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 101.0.1

'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.'

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

I run firefox from the command line in a terminal, and recently I have been seeing this set of messages in the term when I load various webpages:

Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index2/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index3/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/present Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu Sandbox: unexpected multiple open of file /proc/cpuinfo

Mostly, there doesn't seem to be any loss of function related to this message. However, I have one anecdotal example of a forum website I have used in the past freezing on a blank screen at the same time these messages pop up in the term.

I can find no match for this particular message on the entire open internet. There is one near-match on bugzilla bug # Bug 1718493, but that is solved and done.

Any thoughts appreciated, thanks!

Hello, in last few days I notice that when you try to save web page that has title ending with .com or anything like that saved file has .com extension instead of htm. I often use this option and I'm sure it must be one of the latest updates that started to cause that. Any chance it gonna get fixed and Firefox start adding .htm after .com?

For example try saving page https://www.naturalnews.com/ its title is "Natural Health News and Scientific Discoveries - NaturalNews.com" and saved file has .com extension. I need to fix it everytime and add .htm manually.
