We have a site that for some reason just started getting blocked by FireFox's Tracking content setting in private browsing mode. We have a Production build that still works but our QA build does not. For the life of my I can't figure out what changed that would have triggered Tracking content to start blocking the site. Basically the site will load but we only get a blank page.

Is there any way to debug what exactly the Tracking content filter is blocking?

I am afraid that I am very confused about the changes to this site. Are the FAQs the only way to learn about the changes, or is there some documentation I am not presently seeing?

In addition, what happened to my older account on this site?

And where exactly are all the other posts, like I would expect to be seeing as if it were a regular forum platform?

Maybe I am more than confused. Maybe I am completely lost. Yes, my own stupidity might be a major factor for this confusion I am guilty of!

Greetings.

Whenever I click on a link to Facebook, the page manipulates the browser history, effectively disabling the back button by adding multiple instances of the same page. I read that Google addressed this issue with Chrome a while back, but I don't find anything about a fix for Firefox. Is there one?

Thank in advance. Bill

As per topic title, while downloading files from my university website for class and switching back to a youtube page, I got the strange popup "Would you like to make this document your home page?" I selected no, but I would like to know if this is merely something that can happen at random with Firefox, or potential malware or the like.

Thank you.

When i use Firefox and i'm logged in YT, time labels and red progress bar at the bottom of thumbnails aren't visible. When i'm logged out, everything works fine. Also, video progress seems not to work too.

Things i've already done: -turned off all extensions -reinstalled firefox browser

I explored html, and it looks like something blocks browser from putting some elements into code or whatever. The time label is called "ytd-thumbnail-overlay-time-status-renderer" and it's contained in "overlays" div. So when i'm logged out from YT, everything works fine, but when i'm logged in, this "overlays" div is empty.

Hi There:

I have a lot of bookmarks in Firefox. Some of them are outdated and no longer work.

On this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-delete-bookmark#w_deleting-a-single-bookmark it describes two ways to delete a bookmark. I've tried both. Neither one works. Suggestions appreciated.

Thanks, Mike.

Extremely disappointed! Firefox forgot all my tabs although I carefully configured the opposite!

I installed Firefox on a MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2012) with MacOS 10.15.7 Catalina. Before closing Firefox for the first time, I carefully opened settings and ticked "Restore previous session", under "Start" on the "General" settings page. But when I opened Firefox again, there were no tabs, just a "Welcome screen" as if it was the first time ever I use Firefox! This is extremely disappointing! I am really shocked! I had never thought that Firefox would screw me like this! I have been using Firefox on Windows and Ubuntu for many many years! I can add that it is Firefox 85.0.2. And now it updated itself to 86.0.

There is one menu short in a screen, when I use Firefox to my bank. The file "2021-02-14.png" is missing a menu with "Forbrugsoverblik Forbrugsagenter Etiketter" on black background. The file "2021-02-14(1).png" is the same <prt sc> but in Edge browser. The file "2021-02-14(2).png" is the same but in Crome.

The two last are correct with all menu'es. How do I get the same i Firefox? I have cleared cookies and cache without any result.

I can't send any links, because you need to be logged in.

The tab bar should distinguish the active tab (in part) by removing its bottom border. When I restart Firefox, the tab bar displays correctly but before long that bottom border of the active tab reappears. Changing to a different theme doesn't help. All I can think of is that perhaps I have too many add-ons or bookmarks installed. (I currently have just under 50 add-ons.) What can I do to keep that bottom border off the active tab?

It should close all tabs (Like Ctrl+W close current tab, Ctrl+Shift+W should close all), but not a window!

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 on macOS 11.2.1 and I can't load the PKCS11 Device Driver for my eSign. All the necessary drivers are installed on the system and the Charismatics Scard Utility recognises the devices properly. What's even stranger, is that I was able to add the device in Thunderbird (78.7.1).

Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong and get the device working, please?

Thanks!

I use 85.0.2-64bit on a Windows 10 PC.

For the last month or so, when I click on any of the headline links from the news.google homepage, I'm shown only a blank page. No error message. The url looks normal.

-The links all work when I use Edge.

-I do have Add-ons, but I turned them all off, restarted Firefox, and the links still fail. Any remedies? Suggestions? Some setting I don't know about?

Hi!

I have two Firefox windows open. One is of my 'Personal' profile and the other is of my 'Work' profile. (Both set in 'about:profiles'). I would like to switch between the two using hotkeys.

While I'm able to switch between Firefox windows of the same profile using the default "Cmd + ` ", it's not working between windows of different profiles. "Alt + tab" works of course but that's slow if I haven't activated one of my profiles (window) for a while.

If there isn't a native solution, I'd also be interested in hearing about Lua + "Karabiner-elements" workarounds if you are familiar with them.

Thanks!
