We run Firefox on all our clerk computers at the public library where I work. Since the most recent update, our online circulation website which we use to check out books, receives a pop-up blocked message every time we try to print a hold receipt for an item. The website has always been added as an exception to our pop-up blockers, and until just after the most recent update, the blocker had no problem allowing the website through. Now it does. I have tried clearing the browser caches, removing and adding the website to the exceptions list again, and restarting the browser, as well as adding different variations of the website to the exceptions list. In the end, we just had to turn the pop-up blockers off. I searched online for anyone else who had this issue, but the ones I found dated back to 2014-2015, and the solution they came up with no longer seems to exist in the Firefox settings. So I'm hoping to find an answer here! Thanks.

Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks

Trying to install/run Firefox on new iMac.

Downloaded the most recent version. Clicked on installer icon. Dragged the icon to app folder. Seemed to install. Ejected installer. App folder shows only a 2k alias,,,no "program". Click app icon. Installation icon reappears on desktop and process starts all over again!!!

On old iMac the app shows as a 375Mb application!

Any help would be appreciated as I have no hair left to pull out.

PS: the iMac won't let Chrome run either. Says it can't be opened because Apple can't check for malicious software, even though install process verified the disk image!!!

As the feedback option via help is unavailable at the moment, I'd like to give feedback on ways to improve the new Print Preview dialogue box. After using it for a while, I quite like the general concept, however the design has some flaws that could make it more user friendly. This is my wishlist. It would be great for others to add their ideas but please avoid the negative option of going back to the old dialogue, as that has been expressed in many other threads.

1. Add Simplify Page - I think this is in progress 2. Condense the dialogue box, there is too much white space. If it was more compact, every option could be visible removing the need for the "More settings.." extra click. 3. Rework/expand the Pages options. Currently there is only "all" or "custom". Bring it into line with the Windows dialogue and offer "Page 1" and "Selection". Maybe also a drop down list. In essence, having to type the specific pages should be the last resort. 4. The ability to choose the printer's "Tray" is missing (or hidden too well). 5. When the user is trying to choose a scaling option eg 80% or 90%, if the number is entered and then "enter" pressed, suddenly the document starts to print. Often scaling takes some trial and error, and pressing "enter" should not send the document to the printer. 6. The Scaling option should be higher in the box. It is more frequently used than Orientation etc. 7. I would prefer (others may disagree) that the dialogue default to the settings on the printer, regardless of what was changed last time. Instead of being confident that the page will default to my normal printing settings (eg tray 2, greyscale, one-sided etc), now I have to check the printer settings for every print, because it has probably remembered one small change made for the previous print session.

Please add to the list if you have constructive suggestions, or disagree with mine, and hopefully the feedback will be picked up...

The page you are attempting to access requires your browser to have a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) client certificate that the Web server will recognize. The client certificate is used for identifying you as a valid user of the resource. SO KINDLY HELP ME TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE . IS IT POSSIBLE IF I DO set the about:config preference “security.osclientcerts.autoload” to true. IF IT WILL WORK PLEASE TELL WHERE IS LOCATED IN MY BROWSER VERSION 87

Hi comunity.

I'm trying to use the Firefox ADMX GPO files wtih a Windows 2012 R2 domain controller. The GPO's are applied on my test system. I checked it with gpresult. But no rule are affected on Firefox. If I use "about:policies" the message is:

What is my mistake?

In Firefox on desktop Mac:

After a search, then clicking on a search result from the list of options, the selected link always opens as a half screen instead of the normal full screen I've always had in the past. I then have to manually spread the half screen result out to full screen.

Clicking on any bookmarked link, they still all open normal full screen.

Don't have the problem in Safari but I prefer using Firefox.

This problem suddenly came up after many years of normal 'full screen' Firefox operation.

How can I make these search results open as a (normal) full screen in Firefox - like they always used to do?

Not very computer savvy if someone can give me 'Firefox for Dummies' assistance.

I don't see another place to post this. If someone provides a link to a tracker I'll be happy to repost. I should also probably open these items in different posts. I will do so if required.

I see a few places where Multi-Account Containers can be improved:

1) More icons - ability to use all Google Material Icons, even if the ID is manually entered 2) More colors - with color wheel or entry of #RGB 3) From the Multi-Account Containers Support page, "The sync feature will align Multi-Account Containers on different computers" - This does not appear to be working with v87 on two systems. 4) Also from that page, "Assign a website to a container" does not appear to be documented: Three dot Page Actions in address bar > Alway open this in a container.

Am I missing existing functionality or documentation?

Thanks!

I am writing a program that requires me to detect when a shift key is pressed and do something. Something like

window.addEventListener('keydown', event => console.log(event), false); // expect to see an event logged to console when pushing the "shift" key

This works great on all browsers except Firefox. "alt" and "fn" keys are also not able to be detected on Firefox. Is there some sort of advanced security settings I can disable to let me capture these things?

Thanks in advance.
