I want the home page to be blank when I open the browser, I want the home button to a URL. This was possible in older versions, and when you then updated the browser it maintained this difference - if it was already set. I did that once but I don't remember how far back on versions that is an option. Is it possible to do this in 89? If not, how far back should I go to install, make my home page and home button settings, then update to the current version. Then we're all good.

If you could supply a link to the correct FF file (windows 10, 64bit) that would be even more good.

thanks

Hello everyone! I`m using Firefox for a long time, but the following problem makes is almost impossible to us it anymore:

since a couple of month Facebook stopped working correctly on Firefox, it works for a while, then suddenly everything stopped, does not load anything, nor the page, nor messages... I need to clear the cache of facebook cookies then works for a while again... and then repeat.

It wasn`t a blocker problem with Facebook, but now it does the same with everything related to Google too. I push google button on bookmark, nothing, i push any button on Google (if already opened), nothing... Google docs buttons disappear, google login not works, etc... The same cookie cleaning helps, but i can not do this with google too... I`m logged in to work documents and stuff, can`t just reload everything every 10 minutes....

I use only Addblock Ultimate and Mouse Gestures Event, but tried disabling them without effect on my problem.

Thank you for your input!

After 89.0.1 update on Windows, Firefox will not release the audio device, not allowing the computer to sleep.

Since the 89.0.1 update on Windows 10 21H1 (Build 19043.1055), Firefox will not let my PC sleep, unless I quit and re-open Firefox. There is no audio playing on any tabs, but after a while of using Firefox on YouTube or whatnot, it will not release the audio device to let Windows put my monitors to sleep even though all playback has ended.

This can clearly be seen by running "powercfg /requests" as an administrator.

With videos playing, as expected Firefox reserves the audio device, as well as an Execution request.

Output: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe non-display request

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

But after you stop playing the video the output becomes: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: None.

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

You can see the audio device doesn't get released, and the only resolution is to quit and restart Firefox.

This doesn't always happen, but does happen after a while.

I am trying to include some PDFs in iframe tags on my website. Previously they appeared as normal, embedded within the page. But now whenever the page is loaded firefox prompts the user with the "What should firefox do with this file?" window or whatever the default action for the PDF file type is. It does not display the content on the page and the iframe is just blank. The iframes still work on chrome so it does not appear to be an issue with my code.

I know that the autofill for credit cards is only available in the US and Canada (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/credit-card-autofill#w_edit-your-saved-credit-cards). I live in the US. The feature was working just fine... until I traveled overseas and used my laptop there and changed time zones to where I was visiting. Now that I'm back in the US, the feature is missing. In the settings, I don't see a "Forms and Autofill" section in the settings. I checked system locale and it's properly set to us-en. All the settings are properly set in about:config. I've tried everything I found by searching online and nothing helped. I even tried creating a separate profile in Firefox to see if the section shows up under setting with no luck.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi I run a program called nodered on a raspberry pi in docker. I use a browser to reach the user interface via lan. If that tab sits in the background too long (~5 min) the connection with the server resets and resets the gui.

I lose all current debugging information and any unsaved changes. Saving the page will stop the lost progress but not the current debugging. In other words just saving the page each time will only solve 1/2 of the problem.

Is there anyway to keep a background page active so it doesn't reset after a few minutes?

Just now, Twitter started not loading properly. Sometimes it goes to a page where it just says, "Try Again" with the Twitter logo above the button. When it does load, images, gifs and videos are blank with a single colour filling in the media box.

I've updated to the latest Firefox version, restarted the browser, cleared cache and cookies, turned off all extensions and it's still happening. I've seen that this has been an issue for a long time that has been 'fixed' but is obviously still not. I only just came back to using Firefox after a long hiatus and I vaguely recall this being one of the reasons why I stopped using it years ago. That it's STILL an issue is just... sad.

When I try to reload, I also get the address: https://twitter.com/home?failedScript=polyfills

Does that mean anything?

I saved an image (JPEG) appearing in a Firefox browser tab onto my Mac. Maybe I clicked something because the saved list of files on the left side of my Finder window briefly highlighted, but the only thing to "undo" was renaming the file, something I'd intentionally done.

When I went back to the first tab in Firefox which originally displayed the item I'd saved (also open in a second tab), the tab displayed the contents of what was stored in a file on my Mac. The address reads "file:///Users/. . ." It also shows that the last modified file is the ".ds_store" file at around the same time this happened. The folder from my local drive which appeared in the browser tab was not even the folder with which I'd been working.

What occurred? Why and how are my local files being displayed in a Firefox tab, and has anything been altered or gone missing on my local drive? Thank you for any help!

Hello, The accordion element we use in application has aria-label and aria-expanded set as per spec but during voice over in Mac Firefox does not say "Expanded" or "Collapsed". It works as expected in Chrome and Safari.

Please see the screen shots. Chrome and Firefox on the same Google site - https://workspace.google.com/marketplace?pann=ogb.

Chrome identifies the Expanded and Collapsed state but Firefox does not and no event changes are captured on click.

I'm running Windows 10 and have experienced multiple, repeated stopcode violations resulting in the blue screen and reboot (or sometimes requiring hard shutdown and reboot). I've kept close records of programs and peripherals, and the only constant I can find is Firefox. Typically I see it with I'm exploring something in Firefox (ironically it just occurred while typing this). I've taken the computer to the shop a couple of times, and they've stressed it over multiple days and can't duplicate it. I wonder about the interaction of internet fluctuations and Firefox. I'm wondering if my motherboard is failing, though it's fairly new. Any help I can get on this would be very welcome! Thank you!
