When I try to go to my webmail I sometimes am presented with a Deceptive Site Ahead warning.

I am quite happy that although the SSL might not be current that the website is safe for me to go there. How do I stop this annoying feature from activating?

If I right click on an iframe when browsing in a container tab, and select "This Frame -> Open in New Tab", the new tab is not in the same container as the source tab. In fact it is not in any container.

Whereas when middle-clicking on a normal link to open it in a new tab, the new tab is in the same container as the source tab.

Is this a bug? Seems like a bug to me. Surely we would want the new tab to use the same container as the source tab?

This brings up something I have been trying to fix for more than a year. When I click on the email link "Start with a free scan", google.com appears at the bottom left and nothing happens, not just with your link but with all. I have waited many minutes just to see if it will link. Sometimes, after minutes, it connects. I have been trying to get Google out of this in "mailto" but cannot. If I right click "open in a new page", google does come up, the target site does (I think) and we move along normally.

Can't you fix this? Google it and you'll see it everywhere. Mozilla has a suggested approach online which does not work. Please help all the AVG and Firefox folks who suffer with this.

Thank you,

I'm just wondering why I can no longer change book mark size on FF. Even more strange I can't find anyone on the internet who has anything to say about it. Their are some fixes but they are like from three to five years ago. And it's not for the current version of FF. What is going on? Why can I no longer change the book mark size? I have a desktop.

Cookies being written and automatically deleted

Hello,

I work for Microsoft, and one of our sites offers users a way to opt out of personalized advertising on some Microsoft domains by setting a cookie. The site: https://account.microsoft.com/privacy/ad-settings/signedout

When the user clicks the toggle to Off, we cycle through four domains via an iframe and write a TOptOut cookie on each one. If everything is working properly, the user should then be able to go to www.bing.com and see a TOptOut cookie on Bing that will prevent personalized advertising on that domain.

The problem is, this stopped working in Firefox. We have verified that it still works* in 115.7.0, but in 122.0.1 and 123.0, the cookie is written and then deleted on refresh. If the user doesn't already have Bing open in another tab, they'll never see the cookie at all. I have verified this behavior in Bing several times, on my work machine (Firefox 122.0.1 on Windows 10) and my personal machine (Firefox 122.0 snap on Xubuntu 23.10).

  • It still works on our corporate VPN in 115.7.0, but not on my coworker's non-VPN machine. Same version. I'm really not sure what's up with that one.

This is a large concern for us. Because the cookies can still be written, it doesn't trip our test for third-party cookies being disabled. Because the cookie for microsoft.com is written, the toggle will show up as Off even after a refresh. This is misleading to our users.

I have gone over the Firefox docs on Enhanced Tracking Protection and Total Cookie Protection, but neither seem to handle this case. Firefox does not block any trackers on account.microsoft.com or on www.bing.com. It's fine if the cookies are in separate jars, we just want them to be written to the proper domains and not deleted. Can anyone tell me what changed in Firefox recently? Is this expected behavior, or a bug? If it's expected behavior, what can we do to allow users to opt out of personalized advertising?

https://Website.com/P/-this-site-doesnt-exist--68290.html or https://Website.com/P/-this-is-also-an-example--34846.html


I want Firefox to automatically delete "-this-site-doesnt-exist-" or "-this-is-also-an-example-" whenever i open any of them. So opening them would instead open:

https://Website.com/P/-68290.html or https://Website.com/P/-34846.html

Can this be done?

I am using Bookworm 12.5.0 Debian with KDE current and Firefox 115.8.0esr long-term version. All appear current. Spiral Linux is the effective shortcut to the Debian loading in its simplified installation. Firefox opens fine, but the field of display cannot be controlled well. I can use Ctl + 0 to somewhat manage, but otherwise any cursor movement sees the display go crazy. Trying to get the cursor over any point is simply impossible. I am using a different computer now to post this with the virtually identical software. This Intel pad differs from the Beelink Ryzen unit which is the unit going berserk. Is there anything that you can tell me other than the Ctl+0 to modify the operation of the unit. I had swapped out the monitor on the Beelink though I have no idea that the monitor is the problem as I do not have the same issue withDiscover or the desktop or any of the other software. I can open up Konsole and use that or open up OpenOffice or OfficeLibre with no similar issue. Would a different monitor act like that?

I am encountering a repeated problem making online reservations in another country through Firefox, in which I select the correct date in the displayed calendar, submit the reservation request, and then receive a confirmation for the day following the one I requested. It has now occurred multiple times in the last few months, involving reservations made at hotels, restaurants, and libraries through a variety of platforms (third-party consolidators, directly through the business's own site, etc). I thought at first it might have to do with the time zones--I made the first batch of reservations in the evening US time when it was already the following day in Europe, but it is now happening with reservations made at a time when the dates match. When I contact the businesses, they see no sign of error on their end. I feel like I am losing my mind.

Hi all,

I feel like this is a problem that must have been experienced and solved a thousand times... however I've tried all the suggested fixes I can find and the problem still persists.

When I load Firefox the pages take ages to load. It doesn't matter what the page is, it takes ages, except that about: pages load fine, no problem. When I say pages take ages to load, I mean that everything about the page takes ages, not only the next, not on the images and other content etc, everything. This only started happening today and I only created a new profile a month or so ago. I don't have many tabs open (maybe 20) of which 9 are pinned. I do have lots of extensions installed.

I've tried troubleshooting/safe mode, that makes no difference.

Private browsing and loading another profile are fine, they don't have this problem.

I've cleared all cache and data, cookies, etc, including startup cache.

I've deleted the content-prefs file, and removed places files.

I've tried disabling and enabling hardware acceleration.

I've tried disabling TRR.

Probably some other things too, but so far nothing has worked.

Suggestions please! :)

On my Macbook air (m1 2020 14.3.1 (23D60)) /etc/hosts is ignored by Firefox 123

i've tried multiple offered (old) solutions from stack but non work.

FAILED ATTEMPTS:

  • DNS over https -> off
  • network.trr.excluded-domains ... tried to add the domains in the dns over https exeptions ... didn't work either
  • added the domains to network.trr.excluded-domains
  • cleared cache
  • restart ff
  • migrating all my /etc/hosts config from multiple domains on a single line to separate lines did. Hope this helps someone.
  • network.ttr.mode = 5
  • sudo dscacheutil -flushcache; sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder in the terminal


Background: I run my own server and I cannot access them over the internet if I am on the same network (rounter dissallows this) This is annoying as I cannot develop via my laptop.

/etc/hosts is changed and in the terminal all (ssh etc...) works fine.

What is the proper way of doing this these days?

Video on some websites is choppy after updating to a newer version of Firefox (115.8.0esr). I have attempted to upload a video of the problem but it seems only still images are allowed and this doesn't illustrate the problem. An example website where this occurs is https://www.fiat.it but there are plenty of other examples. It looks as if the playback is jumping forwards and backwards between frames. Strangely Youtube videos seem OK.

Some information which may be of use

OS: OpenSuse Leap 15.5 HW: Dell Precision 7510 with Nvidia Quadro M2000M video card and driver version 550.54.14

I have also noticed that when starting Firefox from the command line I see frequent messages like

Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index2/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index3/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/present Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu Sandbox: unexpected multiple open of file /proc/cpuinfo

Probably not relevant but I included it just in case it is useful

Any help you can offer with debugging would be much appreciated, thanks

I have just upgraded to Firefox version 123. Now whenever I start Firefox on any of my profiles, it will immediately or almost immediately display a "Welcome back" popup stating that "Here’s a quick reminder that you can keep your favorite indie browser just one click away." and provides a button to make the browser the default one. That's exceedingly annoying - I can understand that Firefox wants to notify my once in a while, but this happens at least once a day, probably more often than that. I looked over the source code and got that it is a "spotlight" feature, but I failed to find any settings that would turn it off. Any idea how can I disable this forever?

Dear Support Team,

I tried enabling localfilelinks in firefox and found this thread https://support.mozilla.org/fr/questions/1264779 which mentions creating a "user.js" file and adding this:

/ Create policy enabling http: or https: pages to link to file: user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "filelinks"); user_pref("capability.policy.filelinks.checkloaduri.enabled", "allAccess");

// Sites to which the policy applies (protocol://hostname protocol://hostname) user_pref("capability.policy.filelinks.sites", "http://example.com http://intranet");

then reloading firefox.

The fix worked and i was able to use local files in firefox. My Problem now is reverting localfileaccess to default (blocked).

i tried modifying the "user.js", deleting it, deleting and reinstalling firefox, cleaning the firefox install and creating a new profile. when i deleted user.js the enabled options vanished from "prefs.js" but local file access was still enabled. I also tried to edit the generated options in about:config but i cannot get it to revert to localfile access beeing locked and couldn't find any way to fix my problem.

Is there an easy way to relock this?
