unable to turn off safe search when using Bing search. After clicking the more bars on the Bing search page and setting safe search to off, when checking if it is off, it has reverted to moderate. Firefox is vs 96.0.1. Setting is set to normal, not strict. Windows 10 preferences are set to safe search off. All caches have been cleared. I took off all extensions, ran malware bytes & cccleaner & anti-virus scan. I tried a refresh of Firefox. Nothing has helped.

Using Edge or Chrome browsers on the Bing search page, Safe search turns off as it should.

--There was a power failure, last night, which knocked off my computer.  That may or may not be related.  However, with both Edge and Chrome accessing Bing okay, it seems to definitely be a Firefox problem?

Win 10. Using FF 96.0. My entire tab row shifts back and forth very rapidly. This has been happening continuously for the past several versions of FF. Condition is also worsens somewhat when I move the mouse. Occasionally, closing a particular tab stops this action but I cannot determine which type of tab does this. This is driving me crazy. Please HELP!! (Is there some way I can send a video from my iphone?)

I open a new private window, go to a website such as Wikipedia, and use the in site search bar to search for say "dogs". Then close all private windows and all other Firefox windows, and re open a new regular Firefox window, both my search for "Wikipedia" is remembered by the search bar, and my search for "dogs" is remembered by Wikipedia. Clearing my cookies and deleting my browsing history does nothing to fix this. Reinstalling Firefox has also done nothing to fix this. Every bit of information i can find on the topic says Firefox's private browsing mode deletes cookies and history upon closing all windows, but this is not the case for me. My temporary patch is to remove all address bar suggestions from everywhere, but i only want private browsing mode to function as intended. Thank you for reading all this and i hope you can assist.

I updated to the latest version yesterday and now my Bookmarks ,History and a few other things have gone into Dark Mode. I really don't care for it and have tried looking into my settings but I see nothing that I can do to go back to the normal white. I am using Windows 11 on an HP All In One Desktop computer. Is there anything I can do to revert back to the way it was? Thanks for any reply.

Firefox 96.01 seems to be blocking access to popmoney through my credit union's website. The error message states that I must allow third-party cookies, but Firefox 96 doesn't have an option to specifically enable/disable third-party cookies. I can do this easily on Microsoft Edge, so I have to fall back on Edge in order to use popmoney.

Copy of error message:

"We're sorry for this error. In order to use this service, your internet browser must accept third-party cookies. Please refer to your browser's online help for enabling cookies in your system. Please try again after you enable the cookies."

Hi! I was digging through the changelogs as I noticed that Google and Firefox settings were now in dark mode. I discovered a new feature that had it sync with the system dark-mode. Is there a way to turn this off (through settings or about:config)? Not a huge fan of dark-mode Google, but light-mode Windows is terrifying lol.

Thanks in advance for your help--not a huge deal, just something I was interested in knowing. Have a fantastic day!

FireFox has been shutting down and or losing tabs for some time. After going thru "Trouble Shoot & Diagnose Problems" as well as operating in Safe Mode (which also had failures), tried to do "Clean Reinstall" per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1075976 after renaming Program Files and uninstalling Firebox. Article indicated that settings, preferences and bookmarks would be retained. I GOT A BLANK VERSION OF FIREFOX...no tabs, no frequent visited, etc. How do I get these back?

Hi; When I close FF (V96.01) it does not seem to close properly and when restarted trys, usually unsuccesfully, to reopen previous tab. I have , open previous tabs and windows, unchecked in settings. I have tried both the X and exit. If I set, browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash, to false in options it does not happen. as per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1292610. But when I reset session restore to true the problem resumes. This makes me believe FF is not closing properly Win10 is up to date with all latest updates as is FF.

Is there a fix for this?

Firefox became non-responsive yesterday while I browsing. This was on several profiles. If I closed FF and restarted it usually said FF was already running. I closed FF in Task Manager but that made no difference. Rebooted the PC but to no avail. Did these several times but made no difference. However Windows 10 Edge worked.

I restored Windows 10 back a few days & then FF worked. I then updated FF from vers 94 to vers 96. Even after FF indicated it was now vers 96 it still kept checking for updates for probably 10 minutes.

Today I did a few Ookla Speedtests. After clicking “GO” it takes about 30 seconds for the test to start, which does indicate a ping of 10 ms. Ping varies a bit with every test.

If I use the Edge browser it takes only a second or two for the test to start with approx the same ping.

This almost 30 second difference is repeatable. I never noticed such a big difference between the two browsers before.

Why does FF take so long to start the speedtest after clicking "GO"? Does this have something to do with FF vers 96? Or is there something wrong with my FF installation?

Thanks for any suggestions. Thanks

First: Firefox works for me without any problems when using it. Now to my problem and my question: Recently I looked through my event log and noticed that in the application log two app crashes of Firefox are logged again and again (mostly every 3 to 4 hours, sometimes even shorter). My problem now is that these logs also come from times where Firefox is not running. I am not primarily concerned with what is causing this, Firefox is working fine as written, but why Firefox is running there. Is this an automatic update search? My update settings are as follows: "Check for updates, but ask before installing", "Use a background service to install updates" is disabled. Also, it shows an incorrect version "95.0.2.8022" even though I already have "96.0.1" installed. I hope someone can answer my question and thanks in advance.

In addition the first eventlog message of those two: Fehlerbucket , Typ 0 Ereignisname: APPCRASH Antwort: Nicht verfügbar CAB-Datei-ID: 0

I own www.batteryseminars.com domain, and it has been setup to permanently forward to: https://plugvolt.com/seminars/

Whenever I enter www.batteryseminars.com in Mozilla browser (Mozilla browser only), it times out with no response or opening of any web page. I have tried this from different computers with different IP addresses, and it does it each time - but again, only when using a Mozilla browser. The domain forwarding works well in Chrome, Edge and Safari browsers.

How can this be fixed? Thanks.

Hi, recently I setup a home server for my local lan. Through the use of AdGuardHome and Nginx Proxy Manager, I have attempted to redirect websites I wish to avoid (in this case adult websites). The problem is that Firefix gives the error code MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT and won't allow me to create an exception. As an example, i've tried redirecting google.com to duckduckgo.com. I've looked up solutions to this but nothing has helped. Thanks
