Recently, I've seen Google searches slow down. At first, I took it as problems at Google. However, when Google started to ask me to verify I am a human more often than not, I decided to investigate the matter.

NetLimiter is showing a HUGE number of connections Firefox is making to the 1e100.net domain. Even with an empty tab open only. Refer to this 1e100.net explainer article to understand what 1e100.net is and does.

Is anyone else seeing this or has something happened to my Firefox 103.0.2 (64bit build)? Bitdefender isn't telling me it has been infected with anything so...

How do I start Firefox in a safe mode? i.e. without extensions enabled. I want to try seeing whether if its one of my addons.

Hi,

I would just like to ask for support regarding an error I recieve when I try to do video call on facebook over your browser. I have attached a copy of the error.

I have restarted both firefox and my laptop as well as ensured the camera and microphone are allowed for facebook but the error still persists.

This does not happen with the other browsers btw.

Hoping for a response on the matter.

I use Dashlane to securely log into websites. When I click go to the website, Dashlane populates the search bar with the URL. When Dashlane populates the searchbar with one specific URL https:// is added to the front of the URL. Of course this breaks the login. I have to manually edit the URL to remove the https:// and then press enter to load the URL. I have searched for hours and every solution all the way back to 2012 fails to resolve the problem. Please tell me how to resolve this.

Upgraded from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. This forcibly converted Firefox to a "Snap" version. The new version won't find or use any of the old profile information. So I've lost all my passwords.

about:profiles shows only the newly created default profile.

Old profiles still exist in '~/.mozilla/firefox/####.default-release' but about:config does not find them.

Read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recover-user-data-missing-after-firefox-update Not helpful.

I can find old versions of login-backup.json and key4.db. , but they seem to be out of date.

I got a new laptop recently and yesterday I installed Firefox and started up Sync. Today, on my previous laptop, I notice that a couple years worth of history are now missing from the beginning of the time when I used it! What can I do? I have turned off Sync now because someone told me last year to do that when I had a problem with Sync, to keep it from spreading (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1345759).

AMAC (Association of Mature American Citizens) publishes a compendium of articles which are emailed to its membership. Each mailing contains a brief outline of several articles and links to those articles. A sample of the compendium may be accessed at the following link:

https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/1/messages/ADLT61oJh8E3YvqSbAIXKGeDHxg?.intl=us&.partner=sbc&.lang=en-US

The problem is that attempting to link to any of the articles results in a message : "invalid request". It is easy to see why the request is invalid, since part of the address is missing. For example when I try to open the first article, this is all that seems to get transmitted:

https://content.amac.us/?fopZ8SKvOHN.khHt8p1u4oaGdSIeSdDVf= I don't think an address can end in =. Also when I use other browsers, such as MS Edge, the complete address is accessed and the articles open properly.

So I'm wondering if this is a programing glitch or a censorship issue on the part of Mozilla. I have used Firefox for years with no problem, including accessing the AMAC articles. This is a recent problem. AMAC's newsletter is the only issue I have with Firefox.

Whenever I sign into NFL+, I get stuck on my account page on firefox. I have to copy the url of the previous page to go back to the video page. It works like If I was signed in, but as you can see the top bar with scores to black and it looks like I'm not signed in.

On the other hand. It works perfectly on Edge. As soon as I sign in, it jumps back to the video page and works every time.

I don't have any add-ons.

Hello,

I updated to macos Monterey yesterday and I guess I guess I also my firefox updated to 102.0.1 (64-bit)... Anyway, I was very much used to have a white background in firefox's built-in pdf viewer when viewing pdfs that really have a white background (for example if you download it and check it with Adobe reader, or any reader other than the viewer built-in the browser).

Now the background color is gray, and it's not convenient for me at all. I could not find the magic setting that allow to changing this behaviour... I do not use themes, so I do not mind changing something there if needed.

Could any guru help here please ? That would be much appreciated.

Hello,

Since the last update, I've been having an issue where after about an hour or two of using firefox (it varies), video players on some websites will stop working. I've noticed that Tumblr and TikTok's video players are affected by this. Restarting firefox fixes it, but it's very annoying to restart firefox every couple of hours, and seems like a problem.

The following things didn't fix it: clearing my cache, disabling my addons one by one, turning off hardware acceleration, trying to watch the video in a private window, or reinstalling firefox. I don't know what's left to try.

Please advise, thank you!

Your advise to hold the F5 button and left click the screen refresh is not a fix to the fact that Firefox will not refresh itself most of the time on my Windows 10/64 machine. Chrome and Edge do not have this problem on my machine, and I prefer Firefox so I wish you'd fix the issue instead of offering workarounds.

Thank you,

Unfortunately I had to get a new laptop and it's Windows 11. I want to load Firefox as my browser (I've been using it almost since it's inception) thru the Microsoft store. I do NOT want to activate Edge which is preloaded and want's everything but my bloodtype to set up Edge so that I can go get Firefox. I've pulled up article after article that it can now be directly loaded from the Microsoft store but when I open the store and search for Firefox... it's nowhere to be found. I really don't wanna start up the edge. Anyone know what's going on with this? Or is Microsoft being it's usual sneaky self and forcing me to activate edge and then maybe firefox will show up in the store? Hopefully someone will answer this quickly as I sit here waiting to continue my setup. Thanks!!

Every time I open a new tab or go to a tab that I have open, when I come back after my computer has been asleep and try to search for something or refresh a tab, it will give me an error message. I have to close the tab and search again then it works, sometimes I have to do it 2 or 3 times to get it to work. This just started happening with MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 and FireFox 103.0.2 updates in the last few weeks. I tried restarting my computer and I deleted the Firefox app and reinstalled but nothing helps.

It seems a Windows 8.1 update Aug 10, 2022 made my FF browser enlarge on my second screen from my laptop. Moving it back to the laptop makes it return to the correct size. I've tried the resolution, zoom, etc. Not sure what's happened to it to cause the enlargement. Zoom only works on the pages, not the tabs. It's the whole browser that is bigger, including the tabs. Open to suggestions.

What could have happened? Is there a way to recover that information? (Unfortunately I don't have an up-to-date bookmark backup.)
