'I Save HTML documents containing Bulleted items (lists) from Firefox. When the saved documents are opened with Firefox, the bulletsb are missing, but when opened with MsEdge they are there. Clearly the Saved File has the Bullet markers embedded (even if not identical to the original), so why can't Firefox show them? The particular files that I Save locally are "LibreOffice Release Notes" '

False https-requests?

Hello, Not sure exactly where the problem lies with this one. We have a local UrBackup server running, exposing its http-only web interface on http://hostname.local.domain:55414.

I can no longer browse to this address, Firefox responds with

Secure connection failed and the error code SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG

Looking at the GET request, the scheme is set to https and there is only one request, no redirect.

I can however access the site fine by IP, http://192.168.x.x:55414, AND, by using hostname only, http://hostname:55414, letting Windows fill in our DNS suffix as the network is in an Active Directory domain.

I also have a local Apache server running on my machine, only listening on http on standard port 80. Accessing http://localhost is fine, accessing http://myhostname is fine, but accessing http://myhostname.local.domain again causes FF to switch to an https-request.

What makes me confused is that this behaviour is consistent across browsers, Edge, Chrome, Android on my mobile...

Using Bitdefender for AV/FW, disabling it makes no change.

Tried downloading an older version of Firefox (89) and it does NOT show the same behaviour, URLs load as plain http.

Finally, I tried to add test.subdomain.com as a zone in our DNS and add an A record for the IP of the UrBackup-server, and voila, Firefox requests that site as http without complaining!?

Has the global browser market collectively decided that non TLD:s can no longer be accessed using http, or am I overlooking something obvious?

Best regards Alexander

EDIT: I originally included "false HSTS-requests" in the subject, before realizing that this came from FF redirecting to 443 on my local machine, which has a docker instance listening on that port but using a cert for our public domain, not our local one.

Firefox saves files that I only wanted to open with another application.

I checked the previous solutions in the forum, but they did not work for me. (Windows 11) I changed in system> general > download , applications > the app to open that file type and it works, but besides this Firefox keeps saving the files in the default download folder.

I tried also about:config browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false. browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir change to true No change - still saving copies.

I am trying to block out the new little "stick marks" that post while I try to log on to a site that that I need to "google" and log on to. I tried to sign out of all the "outside sites" that want to log on, but there are sites that I need to log on to and have done this in the past. I usually go to these sites because they are important to my transacting business, accessing my bank, places I pay my bills, etc. If I want to get to these and order or pay a bill, I have to unblock each one of them??? How do I do that? If a credit company wants to contact me, they cannot do this even if we have contacted each other previously? Really?

How do I undo this already-marked system and get out of it? As you can guess, I am old and not up with the times. Please simplify your answers so a not-technical person can understand it.

Every time I start the computer or reboot and open firefox I discover that it isn't the default browser, as reported in the firefox settings menu. I then go to Defaults apps in control pannel settings and set Firefox as the default which sets the default to satisfy the setting menu which then reports that firefox is now the default browser. The next time I turn on the machine or reboot and check the settings menu I discover that firefox is not the default web browser. How do I set firefox as the default browser permanently so that I won't have to do this each time I start the computer? Thank You.

None of this works.

1. There is no key: "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\HTTP\shell\open\command" in the registry.

2. Went through the registry and changed the values of the following keys: .htm, .html, .ttt, .htw, .htx and hxx and every entry to their reference to: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" then rebooted.

3. After each registry edit and reboot windows10 took a long time to come up with lots of disk activity. This tell me the windows changes all this back!

4. So, how do you fix this??????

Whenever I use Firefox 109.0 (on Ubuntu 22.04) to transfer money between savings and checking in my online banking account, I get a window pop-up that says "No Apps Available". This is something going on my bank's servers and shouldn't require Firefox or any local helper apps on my end to do anything. I will post the window that pops up. Has anyone else encountered this? And is there a way to disable these pop-up?
