Hi all,

I am using Firefox 106.0.5 (64 bit). I cannot copy an image from Firefox and paste on to the WhatsApp app. The following steps however work:

  • copy the image
  • paste to a document editor (MS-Word) or image editor
  • copy again
  • paste to WhatsApp

Is this an intended change?

Synced tabs disappear after logging into two different devices

So I had a laptop that had to go under repair (device A), so had to use a different computer (device B). I sign into Firefox, and I can see the synced tabs from device A. For various reasons, the very next day I had to transfer to another computer (device C), so I logout of device B, and login into Firefox in device C. The synced tabs are no longer visible, even though in my account it says device A is still connected to the sync.

Bookmarks and such still load up just fine, I just can't see the device A synced tabs at all. Any clue why this is happening?

Also, is it normal that my email is still showing on the device B menu? Even though it says I logged out successfully, and device B is not showing in sync anymore, in the actual computer it's still showing on the menu above the "new tab" option. How do I remove my email from showing in that particular browse? Uninstall the program entirely?

bookmarks text white on white

Firefox updated to 106.0.2 (64-bit). When I click the sidebar icon, my bookmarks appear on the browser's left side as expected. However the text is not visible. If I hover my mouse over an icon is the list for a bookmark, the link appears. Also not all the bookmark icons appear. There are gaps between bookmarks on the list. Again, I have to hover my mouse over those gaps for bookmark info to appear. How do I make my bookmark list readable/usable again?

My firefox download speeds are absolutely abysmmal while I tried all possible fixes I could find on the internet. Other downloads are working fine (between 15Mbps and 70Mbps usually).

Any idea why firefox download speeds are below even 1(!) Mbps?

I have MSN as my home page. It has changed my local news from Albuquerque to Las Vegas, Nevada. Please tell me how to get it back to Albuquerque. I cannot find help anywhere on this. Please don't tell me to use the Settings gear on the MSN homepage as it has 2 options. Feedback and Help; neither of which addresses this issue.

Is there any way to make firefox respect default communication and playback devices? As it stands right now, if I wanna chat with friends on facebook then I have to go through Windows and force firefox to output audio to my headset, which means that if I wanna watch a video as well, the audio from that no longer comes from my sound system, but my headset instead. When seraching for 'audio,' 'sound,' or 'playback' in the settings (after going through them all manually) I can't seem to change that. Chrome did it just fine..

I am so fed up losing my pinned tabs.

I want a Firefox facility where I can have permanently pinned(locked tabs) and normal pinned tabs.

The permanent ones must not be able to be removed without myself physically clicking and removing them individually and are persistent when opening new browser instances, cannot be cleaned/removed by other cleaner programs are not saved in History.

Permanently pinned tabs should show a mark on the tab like a red padlock.

I use One Tab, but that has it's down side in that it clears my Tabs from the browser in to one single tab and then it is difficult to manage them, there are others and they all have their failings.

Please provide this locked tab facility.

Ever since your last two updates - Nov 4 and 5 - Gmail won't open in Standard View - only in HTML

I'm running Window 10 Pro (64) on a four year old PC

I can get Gmail to load in Standard view if I use Chrome (which I don't like) and in FireFox's Private window but it is inconvenient to have to which back and forth between windows.

I have tried all the fixes everyone a Google has given me but it come to a page that say Do you really want to view in HTML - why not click this button to be taken to Standard View" . I click on that link a page flashes for a millisecond and goes back to the " Do you really want to view in HTML"

I"m at my wits end.

Please help Wendy

I can log in to the Bank of America (B\A) website and see my balances etc, but when I click the "Bill Pay" tab I get a blank screen in standard Firefox mode. When I log in with Troubleshoot Mode mode the page opens up as it should. I have been using Firefox and B\A for years without this issue, but it started several weeks ago. I would like to use Firefox in standard mode to access the Bill Pay feature and not have to go into Troubleshoot mode to do this. What do you suggest?

Firefox unable to open local files

I am trying to open .html files located on my hard drive, but Firefox gives the error:

File not found

Firefox can’t find the file at /usr/share/gimp/2.0/help/en/gimp-pimping.html.

   Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.
   Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.

I can see the files at this location and even when I directly open the files from that location by double clicking them, I get this error. I have seen on Ubuntu forums that this might be a problem with the actual Firefox snap, any official help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Folks,

I have looked on the web for instructions on how to remove "NordVPN CyberSec.cer" from my General Settings and Enterprise Polices. The articles were no help.

At the top of the General page "Your Browser is being managed by your organization" is displayed. Clicking on the Blue Text String I go to about:policies, it shows "Certificates Install NordVPN CyberSec.cer".

When I click on errors - "Unable to find certificate - NordVPN CyberSec.cer" is shown.

I don't know how this may be affecting FoxFire.

I contacted NordVPN and asked them how to remove this "install item". Per their instructions, I deleted everything related to NordVPN.

The error continues after restarts.

The install/load request has to be coming from FoxFire; for Nord does not exist on my machine ( Mac Mini 10.15.7 FoxFire 106.0.1 (64bit ) ). Chrome has never been on my machine. I did trial NordVPN but do not use it.

How do I remove the install request?
