I am using the latest Firefox version 102.0 and I have igHome set as my home page. Yesterday the Google Calendar Gadget would no longer display the calendar but would display this message:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, accountsgooglecom will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

If I click on the “Open Site in New Window” button it does open the calendar. (See attached screenshot.) I have tried login out and back into igHome and my Google account but it doesn’t fix the issue. This is happening on both my laptop and desktop computers running Windows 10 Home. All Windows updates are up to date. I opened Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode and the calendar still does not show. When I use the Google Chrome browser with the same igHome home page the Calendar works fine. Is this something Firefox can fix, or do I need to contact Google?

I cannot currently access https://thesaker.is/ as they are under DOS attack. When I try to access the HTTP sight, firefox is automatically changing what I type, adds the S, and then it cannot connect. Please make it stop "protecting" me. Please respond to to wayne@nano-dyne for any emailed notice as checking bonin006 is inconvenient

Thanks, Wayne Bonin

when you select text and right click popup "Search google for 'text marked'" , here google is your FF's default search engine, but for people in multi-lingual region would prefer to search e.g. web in the language of the selected text, which makes more sense for the results.

I wonder if FF could add this function, auto detect the text's language and search in e.g. google.de, google.cn or google.fr?

Which is like the macOS lookup, it detect the text language and point to that dictionary?

FF could be a little more intelligent, right?

I have tried checking for updates, quitting and reopening firefox, restarting my computer, refreshing firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling firefox, as well as any and all combinations of those. I've scoured these message boards and nothing is working for me. Please help!

Hello,

Until recently, I was able to have Firefox automatically clear all my cookies at the end of a session, EXCEPT for the cookies for websites that I had specified. This was possible by:

  • Checking the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" option under `Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data`
  • Setting the websties that I would like to keep cookies for, under `Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage exceptions`

Now, I simply can no longer use this feature. If I try checking the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" option, then quitting Firefox, it seems to insist on unchecking the box, then changing another section of my privacy settings. Namely the `Privacy and Security > History > Clear history when Firefox closes` section becomes checked, and inside, `Cookies` is marked as something to be cleared at the end of each session. This is unhelpful, because checking the box here means that any exceptions I set in the aforementioned section is not respected, and ALL cookies are deleted.

Am I doing something wrong? If there is a way to get it back to how it used to behave, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I wondered several times why firefox recovers old tabs when it chrashed. now i see that in my profile folder/sessionstore-backups the file recovery.jsonlz4 is some days old (while i was using firefox in the meantime very often) and does not update frequently as requested by about:config browser.sessionstore.interval = 15000 (15s). - this folder or the files are not locked. i can delete/rename them, they are not re-created - there is no file sessionstore.* in the main folder of firefox profile while running firefox - i am using 102.4.0esr (32-Bit) on a company PC (could there be any restrictions?) - the file previous.jsonlz4 seems to be created correctly when firefox is closed normal (which is not my usecase, i want to restore up to date tabs after crashes) - i am not using a private window

do you have any idea?

I just tried to open a new window using File, New Window. It is GONE. I always use that. Now all I get are New Tab New Container Tab (grayed out so I can't select that) New Private window, some other stuff.

The same is true if I right click. I get: Open Link in New Tab Open Link in New Private window.

What did I do to cause these changes?

Is there any way to open the about:config page to a specific setting? I frequently toggle a particular setting on and off and would like a quick way to bookmark it for easy access.

I'm thinking something along the lines of: about:config?setting=media.peerconnection.enabled

Even better would be to allow a new value to be passed in as well: about:config?setting=media.peerconnection.enabled&value=true

(Firefox 102 on Windows.)

Indicating the progress of a runnig download in the taskbar is ok, but when the size of the download is unknown, there is a fast animation, that keeps going and going and going. That´s very annoying, when you want to keep focused on a difficult issue elsewhere on the screen. (Sadly I have these 'endless' and slow downloads quite often at work - e.g. github.)

How can this animation be disabled?

I would happily lose the normal download progress if only this fast animation disappears.

In about:config I did not find anything applicable when searching for 'download', 'animate', 'progress' or 'taskbar'.

I noticed today that all my color PDFs are viewing as black and white. For years they were fine, presenting as color. This is a serious problem, as I am a graphic designer and have many PDFs on my portfolio. I am also seeing the same problem with PDFs linked to my clients' sites.

Images on PDFs are still in color. It's the flat color graphics created in InDesign exported to PDF. Oddly enough, gradients (originally created in InDesign as well) are still presenting as color, but only the gradients.

I do not have this problem in Safari, nor in other browsers, but Firefox has been my go-to browser for years. I never had a problem until I noticed today. Firefox updated two days ago. I'm on a Mac and I now have Firefox version 102.01, as it updates automatically.

Thank you for attending to this issue.

Whenever I try to open google or search anything, It shows this error and only button to Go Back

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection. What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.google.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

I am trying to log on to a website in order to register a guarantee for a product I have purchased. However, when I try to log in to this website, I am booted off by their security system with the following error messages:

Block ID: IPB17 Block reason: Your request was not allowed due to IP blocking (not white listed).

I have been trying to find out how to whitelist this site. However, if I enter the question "how do I whitelist a site?" all I get are lists of people who are trying to resolve whitelisting problems which don't seem even vaguely similar to what I need.

Where can I find instructions on how to whitelist a site?
