When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

So, first off, Firefox is my favorite browser. I love it a lot. I'm also a pretty big supporter of Free and Open-Source Software.

With that said, I was wondering when and if Firefox will fully support ICC V4 profiles and the PNG specification.

I noticed that ICC V4 is not enabled by default, but even after setting gfx.color_management.enablev4 to true and setting gfx.color_management.mode to 1, ICC V4 is still not working properly.

You can test this yourself here: https://littlecms.com/blog/2020/09/09/browser-check/

Also, I noticed that PNG images of large sizes won't display at all in Firefox, resulting in a broken image icon.

You can test this yourself here: https://www.jwz.org/blog/2018/07/png-antics/

These seem to work at least passably well in other browsers, but I don't want to use other browsers! Does anyone know if Mozilla will fix these sometime? I do know that Little CMS is open-source under the permissive MIT license, so maybe Firefox could use that to fix the ICC V4 problem, if that could help. I don't know if using the latest version of libpng will help the other problem, but I know it is under a rather permissive BSD-style license.

I'm using Firefox 90.0.2 in case anyone is wondering.

Hi! I am a developer and I need to test the app in Firefox. But first I need to install the Ignore X-Frame-Options Header plugin. Unfortunately, I can't do this, and I can't install any addons at all. It says: An unexpected error occurred during installation. The version of the browser is updated. And also I have tried to do these steps, which didn't help:

  • about:config
  • set xpinstall.signatures.required to false

Could you please help me?

I am using Firefox 90.0.2 on a Dell laptop. When I run a report from the software Workday, and choose to download it, the "What should Firefox do with this file" always comes up, despite the fact that I have the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" option box checked. I also have gone to the place in Settings where you identify what application to open with different file types. I have identified Excel for Microsoft Excel Worksheets, and Adobe Acrobat for .pdf files.

It is very annoying that the box comes up every time. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!

When we open Mozilla Firefox for 1st time, it asks for Master (Primary Password).

Once we enter the correct password, then it accepts it.

After couple of minutes or 1 hour later, it prompts again and again.

Very inconvenient to keep entering the password again & again if it is already entered once & window has not been closed.

Seems like a bug, please resolve it.
