I am currently encountering an issue where firefox is giving me the PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR despite for no immediately apparent reason. I cannot access any website in Firefox.

Steps taken:

- I've deleted cache/cookies. - Disabled all firewalls and anti-virus software. - Removed all plugins / extensions. - Did a clean install of firefox (while keeping my profile). - Restarted my modem/router.

I have no proxy/vpn, so these are not issues.

Please help me!

Update to Firefox (120.0.1) in Linux Mint blocks CNN - its the only site which appears to be blocked. I get a message telling me that configuration of the site is blocking CNN from loading, and goes on as follows.

"" We apologize, but your web browser is configured in such a way that it is preventing this site from implementing required components that protect your privacy and allow you to view and change your privacy settings. This functionality is required for privacy legislation in your region.

We recommend you use a different browser or disable the “EasyList Cookie” filter from your “Content Filtering” settings (found under “Settings” -> “Shields” in the Brave Browser). ""

Rather strange, since I'm using Firefox.

In general, I am thoroughly annoyed with the way the Internet experience is increasingly fouled up by various sites implementing "safety" aspects. It used to be fun, now its a crap experience. Firefox is getting bigger, slower, and infested with site 'improvements' which do absolutely nothing for me - Is it so hard to provide a simple, clean, straightforward browser without so many 'add-ons' that its grinding to a halt? Time was software was written for the users, now its clearly written to give software developers something to do. Can't you create a revolution in software and do something useful, instead of "clever"?

I have a new PC running Kubuntu 22.04, with Mozilla Firefox 120.0.1 (64 bit) installed. Standard, the system window title bar was hidden. But I wanted access to the "Move to desktop" menu and wanted the title in the title bar. So, in "Customize toolbar" I checked "Title bar". The title bar reappeared, but a complete border along the Firefox window became inaccessible, and when clicking in that zone, it effectively clicked in the window behind. In particular, the complete menu bar is inaccessible, as well as the scroll bar on the left and in the bookmarks sidebar the fold/unfold. And Mozilla Thunderbird 115.5.0 has the same annoying behaviour. Even when hovering over some menus in the Mozilla window, you can sometimes see reactions from the window under the Mozilla window. On older Kubuntu computers (up to 18.04) with older versions of Firefox (up to 113.0.2) and Thunderbird (up to 102.11.0) I do not have that problem. How can I get at the same time access to both the system title bar and the menu bar ?

Is there a setting or add-on for firefox (Windows) that will block tracking pixels? My email client hi-lites when present and as I understand they are incorporated within images so I dont down load attached images to reduce them. On their pro version they allow blocking of these pixels. Unlike cookies there doesn't seem to be an option on reception to opt out. I'm not fully clear what harm they do or whether they are session use only and delete on power off. I would rather not recieve them atall. Companies when challenged smokescreen and refer to cookies rather than pixels or bang on about their companys integrity.

Thanks for your help

Hi all.

I use Firefox 120.0.1 with the setting "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" to clear said data when closing Firefox. I have also set an exception for a few websites, so they should save cookies and data. However, this does not work as intended. After closing and reopening Firefox, both cookies and data are gone from these websites. I have looked for a solution in older forum entries, and it was recommended to adjust the history settings. It seems that checking the box at "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" automatically sets the history settings to what can be seen in the attached screenshot. Altering these automatic settings unchecks the box above. Is this issue related to the website or is there a way to solve it?

Running Firefox 120.0.1 on Windows 10. I also run Vivaldi and test with Chrome. I installed Google Analytics Opt-Out add-ons on FF, Vivaldi, and Chrome. When I go to any site with links to X (Twitter), and click on the link, instead of that link appearing the last X link I went to appears. If I click again I get to the correct link.

When I disable the Google Analytics Opt-Out add-on all works fine. This doesn't happen with either of the Chromium browsers, so I'm thinking there's something happening in Firefox by avoiding Google analytics that isn't in the Chromium browsers. In addition, this behavior began within the past couple of weeks of recent FF updates.

I installed several different Google Analytics add-ons and the same thing happened in FF, but not in the Chromium browsers.

Any ideas? I know I can disable the analytics crushers but I really don't want Google hijacking my browsing.

For the last couple of weeks, whenever I access the finance.yahoo.com/ website, my computer slows to a crawl. I run Activity Monitor to show me FF memory usage has surged to 6.5 GB! I cannot just 'quit' FF, have to force quit to regain the memory. No problems with any other website. I am running Mac OS 12.7, 8GB RAM, FF 102.0.1

Any help/suggestions appreciated.

I have three Firefox-related browsers installed on a Linux Mint MATE system: Firefox, Nightly, and Pale Moon. I realize that Nightly is not intended for production use. That said, the top border is twice as tall as the one on Firefox and Pale Moon. This is a new system and I don't remember the border ever looking like this. The three images should illustrate the problem. Is there an about:config setting I should set?

Hello,

After FireFox 80, the shortcut key of "Copy Link" and "Copy Email Address" was changed to L from A. This is really inconvenient for most right-hand users..

a> I posted a link 2 years ago below. But it is not working in the latest Firefox 120 under Windows 10. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333526

b> I believe a lot of users are looking for this answer like this one below. https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1334749

c> Yes, thanks to this add-on which will add an extra link with shortcut key A, but it shows 2 duplicated links. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/copy-link-address-a/

Anyone know how to change the L to A natively? I prefer the same way as a>, or post an add-on like c> but to change existing L to A, not add an extra link.

Thank you so much! Brian

Hey,

I've been having an odd issue with Firefox where tabs where I attempt to access youtube.com will immediately crash. This issue first arose when I attempted to log in to Youtube, and had never occurred before. When I did that login, the tab crashed, and I have been unable to access the website since (100% crash rate).

Basic details: The website does not visually load at all. However, the URL bar icons for the website do briefly appear prior to tab crash. (Autoplay button, etc). The crash is never reported in about:crashes.

I've tried the following tests, unsuccessfully: - Logging out of all Google accounts separately - Disabling all extensions - Transferring all of my data to a new computer - Reinstalling Firefox - Rebooting Firefox in troubleshooting mode

This problem does not occur on my Windows machine but occurred on my previous intel-based Mac and now on my current Apple Silicon Mac.

The only success I have had is in creating an entirely new Firefox profile. However, I would prefer to fix the issue, as I assume that porting all my settings to the new profile would... also probably bring the bug along.

Thanks for reading & any advice is appreciated.

I had to totally rebuild my system from the bottom up. I had a copy of my old profile stored in the cloud, so I figured I was OK. When, I copied the files from the saved profile to my new profile, everything came over except my bookmarks. I copied the places.squlite and favicons.squlite files (which I understood to contain my bookmarks) separately and pasted them separately into the new profile, but to no avail. I used to keep a separate backup of my bookmarks, but when I learned that the bookmarks were kept in the profile, I stopped. How far up the creek have I gotten myself stuck, and is there a way to restore my bookmarks?

For over a week now I am receiving a popup from 'The Spruce' with the popup header being Mozilla Firefox (see Spruce.jpg). The popup has a facility to disable notifications from www.thespruce.com and I have selected this many times yet the popups keep coming several times a day. (see Spruce2.jpg). I have also visited the Spruce website and there is no unsubscribe link. I didn't subscribe in the first place and had never heard of The Spruce before this. Why is Firefox facilitating this spam that won't be disabled?

I have been getting this error message for over a week now, PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. My internet is fine and I have restarted my computer a few time since the problem started. I have added some sites to the Exceptions list but even then they don't work properly. I have tried refreshing Firefox and changed the profile and they both didn't fix the problem. I am sadly not knowledgeable enough to make sense of the Web Developer Tools. The attached image is what my YouTube page looks like after add the site to the Exceptions list.
