When I search directly from the address bar, the search always defaults to google.com/....whatever I am searching for. But even though my region is set to United Kingdom, my search results are definitely not the same as if I were to navigate to www.google.co.uk and then search for the same string. Is there any way for the default google search to use google.co.uk rather than google.com Thanks?

Ever since updating to the current version of Firefox (112.0 64-bit, according to the settings), every time I close the browser, I'm logged out of every single service I'd been logged into. This was not an issue with previous versions of the browser, and old forum posts on the subject don't seem to contain correct, up-to-date information. Is there some setting I'm missing, that I need to update?

Hello,

Minor issue but some help would still be much appreciated here.

On some sites, when I click the login field, Firefox suggests a list of possible identifiers. Among the suggestions there is one that is the true identifier I need to use the others are mis-typos that I probably have typed in error some time in the past.

I want to clean-up that list to keep just the true identifier. How do I do that ?

When I go to Settings > Passwords I only see the true login identifier. The other items in the list of suggestions do not appear. So it seems that it is not there that I must do the cleaning-up …

[I am appending an example with a list of login identifiers that Firefox suggests (the correct identifier is the last in the list) and the information that is stored in Passwords (only the true identifier is listed).]

Many thanks.

I'm now running in troubleshooting mode with NO extensions.

For weeks my drives have been churning and I've been running out of resource, seeing the hour glass, graying screen, etc.

I finally closed the windows with countless tabs, disabled some extensions, and it got better, but I still have problems, even in troubleshooting mode.

Task manager still shows phantom tabs. I had 4 tabs open, it showed 7, etc.

And strangely, I now see Kaperski Native Messaging with the tabs in task manager: https://www.file.net/process/plugin-nm-server.exe.html

Closed that. Have 7 tabs in one window, task manager shows 11 tabs.

Am so confused.

I'm currently running Firefox v 112.0.2 on Linux. I've had a theme installed for a while now that I really enjoy. It's a minimalist theme I found on github and then I topped it off with some colors that suite my desktop theme.

The ONLY issue I am having is with the dropdown menus. I can't see any of the list items and I cannot for the life of me figure out where to modify these colors. Searching has only gotten me more confused.

Photo is attached. I'm hoping that changing the text color here is an easy fix. The colors are all fine in other dropdown-ish menus, like bookmark folders for example.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

At some point every night, my Firefox (and only Firefox) reverts to version 111 from the latest version. This happens on 2 different Windows 11 machines.

I can only get Firefox to run again by running from command prompt with "-allow-downgrade" option and then updating again.

I usually don't notice until I launch Firefox the following morning and it gives me a message that the profile was created with an older version and to exit or create a new profile.

I've had Firefox open and then it reverts and it gives me a XULRunner error about the profile being used by an older version.

I don't have any special backup or restore software running and the physical files in my Firefox folder in c:\program files\mozilla firefox are being physically pushed to a prior version dated 3/21/2023.

On both machines, I've completely uninstalled and reinstalled and it's good for a day and then reverts.

No log entries for the reversion can be found. It's just back to a prior version.

I've never come across anything like this before and have scanned for any malware or other issue, but haven't found anything.

FFox 112.0.2 (64-bit) running in Linux Mint 20.3 Una.

1, Strange formatting of <B> inside <PRE>. When using the default monospace font inside a <PRE> element, adding <B> elements disrupts character spacing. A screen shot is attached. "wheat" & "purple" are the colors. They are set in a CSS file. Here is the source HTML:

<PRE class="white">
// (1/240) sec-per-char +-all-strides-------------------------->
<B class="wheat">24pps</B>                // <B class="purple">(Aa______)(Bb______)(Cc______)(Dd______)</B> source pps
<B class="wheat">_hpps(Aa..Dd)</B>        // <B class="purple">(A_______)(B_______)(C_______)(D_______)</B> source top hpps
                     // <B class="purple">(a_______)(b_______)(c_______)(d_______)</B>        bottom hpps
<B class="wheat">(AaBbBcCdDd)=60hpps</B>  // <B class="purple">(A_-20%)(B_________+60%)(C_-20%)(D_-20%)</B> target top hpps
                     // <B class="purple">(a_-20%)(b_-20%)(c_-20%)(d_________+60%)</B>        bottom hpps
<B class="wheat">]30'1.001htfps</B>       // <B class="purple">[A+a___][B+b___][B+c___][C+d___][D+d___]</B> target htfps
                     //                 ================         combed</PRE>

<This character spacing disruption is surely a bug.>

<2, Unexpected formatting of bogus <D> element.> elements to (bogus) <D> elements in the source HTML. The result? The colors were retained and the characters became aligned.>

<What do you think of 1 & 2? Can you test in other browsers -- I can't.>

Hi,

Is there any reason firefox would flag an mp4 file legitimately?

  • The file extension and file type are absolutely mp4.
  • There seem to be no mp4 related zero days.

Does Firefox perhaps just treat all downloads from suspicious domains as malware? Is there a zero day I missed? Is this based on some missing metadata on the file or something?

Thanks for any advice you can give here, I'm scared.

The desktop mouse cursor becomes large when using Firefox with >200% display scaling. It doesn't matter if it's 250% or 300%, the result is the same. My system configuration is as follows:

Opensuse Tumbleweed (up-to-date) Firefox 112.0.2 64bit KDE Plasma running Wayland

I've included 2 screenshots that show the difference in the mouse pointer size when outside of a Firefox window and inside it. Also, this issue is only present with Firefox; no other application produces this result. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

This site, Costco Instacart, worked perfectly with Firefox as recently as April 15, 2023 but today fails (see attached image): https://sameday.costco.com/store/costco/storefront?zipcode=11021

Cloudflare believes it is protecting itself from online attacks when accessed by Firefox. The same site worked perfectly today, on the same computer, using Google Chrome.

Cloudflare is a major CDN and many important commercial sites, like Costco Instacart, have their content delivered by Cloudflare so this is a major issue with Firefox. For the moment there is a work-around, use Chrome instead, but it would be better to have Firefox address issues with Cloudflare.

Hi, I made a theme but have since not used it and swapped to another. Everytime I open the browser, it swaps back to the one I made for some reason. Under themes, it will still say the one that is showing is the chosen theme, but it most certainly is the one I made. I turn on another theme and toggle back to the chosen theme and it then changes correctly. Any idea why that could be?
