The latest update added a new warning to the "Forget About This Site" feature. I use this sometimes, and when I saw this warning for the first time yesterday, I knew it was going to be a pain in the arse. I understand it's useful to some people, but I do not want to see it every time. How do I disable this warning?

I and some colleagues using firefox get a 403 error when switching to xero.com authorization services.

1) There is no error in other browsers and with postman. 2) On all versions of firefox, error 403. 3) When installing a clean isolated system on a virtual box - error 403. 4) The error occurs on any connected network. 5) WireShark showed packet loss: (on screenshot).

Technical features: 1) Windows XP (x32),Wwindows 10 (x64) 2) Firefox versions: 52.0-92.0 (latest)

P.S. Xero recommends that you contact you directly for assistance. Because not all users get this error under firefox.

FF seems to keep forgetting what I call "legitimate" cookies. For example:

  • For websites I use daily without a login, like Accuweather, every few days I get their "Accept our cookies?" messages.
  • For sites that allow an on-going login, I need to re-login frequently. Not daily, but certain not months later.
  • I have a financial site that allows me to set only certain devices may be recognized. Today it said a device I use weekly or so is no longer recognized.

There is an old thread that may be relevant: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1309877

But several issues: That thread is closed, even though this bug is still going. Also it only covers Windows and I could use help with Windows & iOS versions.

Could "Tracking Protection" level come into play? I had it set to Standard but noticed recently it was Strict. I think Firefox changed that, not me, but I can't be 100% positive. Meanwhile I changed it back to Standard but so far the issue remains.

Thank you,

Joe

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

I need to download a certificate from a device in my networt called secunet Konnektor

https://www.secunet.com/loesungen/einboxkonnektor

on the manual it's written how to do it.

https://www.secunet.com/loesungen/einboxkonnektor#c1607

I suggest to find a manual somewhere in the first link or in google:

chapter 7.4.3

go to chrome (same with edge)

click on the lock on the left hand side of the link https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8500/management

somehow click on the button where you can open a small windows called "certificate".

The "General" tab shows informations about the certificate.

Click on the tab "Details" and click on "Copy file".

The certificate-assitent opens and after clicking on next, you choose DER-coded-binary X.509 (.CER)

Save the file somewhere where you can find it.

I can't do this on firefox

On firefox I can find a lock on the left hand side of the link https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8500/management

when i click on it and then on something else, i can then click on more informations.

a windows opens called "page informations"

under "security" i click on "view certificates" and a new tabs opens called "certificate for konnektor".

but there is no possibilty to download a cer-file. only a pem file and it doesn't really help me.

In Settings > Search > Search Shortcuts, the help text currently reads "Choose the alternative search engines that appear below the address bar and search bar when you start to enter a keyword."

This seems to imply that entering keywords into the search bar will bring up alternative search engines. However, this is not the case; only the address bar responds to Search Shortcut keywords, while entering keywords into the search bar will pass the entire string (including keyword) to whichever your default search engine was.

Either the wording has to be modified to clarify that search engine keywords only work when typed into the address bar, or search keyword functionality has to be enabled on the search bar.

Firefox will randomly stop resolving google search results. At random times, no search entered at the top url bar will resolve. The browser will just change the text in the bar, and then won't do anything else. If there is a Google page already open, it won't load any links from the results. Google.com won't even load. This typically lasts about 2-5 minutes.

I've seen this in both Windows and Linux. Linux Builds I've tested were the Flatpak from flathub, the snap, the Fedora Repo, and the Tarball binary. They all had the same result after a while of using it. This also happens on both my home network as well as my work network.

I have cleared my profile by manually deleting the folder in appdata or in ~/.mozilla, and tested with no extensions and no setting tweaks. The only tweak I made is disabling DNS over HTTPS. If I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo or something else, It no longer happens. but that's because it's not trying to access a google domain.

I have attached a gif of my issue.

I am trying to add a SVG element next to the form labels with absolute position. When there is a scroll I am listening to scroll event and updating the position of the SVG. When smooth scrolling is enabled the SVG tends to bounce over continuous scrolling. This bouncing is observed in macOS Chrome and in FireFox when smooth scrolling is enabled.

In Linux/Windows, this can be reproduced by using smooth scroll smooth scroll chrome extension.

I've captured the bouncing due to scroll in this recording

I have a dual monitor (extended display) setup and 2 Firefox windows open (one for each monitor). When Firefox crashes or is closed unexpectedly, opening it restores the previous session but the order in which the windows are restored is incorrect.

In other words, hovering over the Firefox icon in the taskbar shows 2 window previews open but in the incorrect order; the first window (left window preview) actually points to the right monitor's window and vice versa. As you can imagine this is superbly annoying because when I hover over the left window preview I expect to access the left monitor's window not the other way around!

This is on Windows 10.

I am a web developer who often writes websites on my own local computer. I use Apache web server, and using both the httpd.conf file and Windows' "hosts" file ( C:\Windows\System32\etc\hosts ) I can make an alias for 127.0.0.1, otherwise known as localhost. Because my name is greg, I can add a server name to my localhost, like http://greg/test.html.

This works pretty well, but sometimes when I add a new alias, like greg or gregory, Firefox doesn't pick up on it right away. I can go to http://greg/test.html in Chrome, and it goes to the local web page just fine. But if I try it in Firefox, it tries to redirect me to "http://www.greg.com". The usual fix is to go into Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Cached Web Content, then press CLEAR.

But this doesn't always work, and it seems like no matter what I clear, Firefox insists on not looking up my local server alias, but instead redirects me to https://www.greg.com.

How do I force Firefox to look for http://greg/ only on my local server?
