[<script src="moz-extension://...averylong guid.../injectedPasswordless.js" type="text/javascript"></script>]

This script (without the brackets) is being added to my WordPress site Text Editor. I substituted the long string of numbers with the words ... a very long guid ...

I have contacted all developers of plugins for WordPress and now I realize it only happens when I edit my site in Firefox. It does not happen in Chrome or Safari, these 2 browsers do not produce this script. It also occurred to me that moz is short for Mozilla (not Moz the SEO expert).

If I only click into a text editor while editing my site the script is added to the text editor!! I have disabled most of my Firefox addons and it still happens. Please advise. What is this?

Whenever the Firefox browser updates, it asks me to close the browser and will not let me open up any new tabs nor update existing tabs without a 'close your browser' message popping up. This is incredibly inconvenient for me. When I'm doing something important, like filling out a form, and it updates. I often have to close the tab that I'm doing something important on and then having to redo EVERYTHING. I would really like it if Firefox would ask or remind me to update instead of force one on me and disabling what I can do with the browser until I do.

My 1Password extension (desktop app required) has stopped working in Firefox

Firefox 114.0, Windows 11 Home Version 10.0.22621 Build 22621 , 1Password-4.6.2.626 extension

Today, for reasons unknown, my 1Password extension, (an old and non-updatable version that I've used for many, many years), is non-responsive. The icon still resides in the Tool Bar, Windows ToolTips "sees" it as "1Password", but clicking on the icon has no effect. The extension is shown as Enabled in Firefox's Manage Your Extensions page.

I think I've tried all the "usual" things here: rebooted the computer, uninstalled and re-installed the extension and rebooting, checked the setting in 1Password itself to see that it's associated with "Mozilla Firefox 114.0", (the program still opens fine outside the browser).

This seems to be related to Firefox 114.0. On my other computer with the same Windows 11 version but using Firefox 113.0.1 had no problem with 1Password, but as soon as Firefox updated to 114.0 the same problem with 1Password appeared.

Anything that I might be able to do to get 1Password working?

When trying to save a bookmark, the menu used to select the folder no longer opens. The bookmark will just be saved in a folder that was selected before the update with this bug. But Firefox does not indicate which folder it was.

Help: The menue to choose a corresponding folder for a bookmark should be reactivated.

When using Firefox on OSX (Ventura 13.4) after about 1 day Firefox slows down so much I have to quit the application and restart it. Then it is back to normal speed. I'm not sure if this is an OS-X issue or Firefox issue, but restarting the app fixes it for a few hours, then its incredible slow again.

Hi,

I've been encountering a strange issue where colors (especially whites) in the video player are super washed out. This only happens when HDR is turned on in windows, and only happens in my Firefox Developer Edition installation (normal firefox works fine). It also doesn't show up in any windows screenshots - the colors revert to normal when I'm in the screenshot GUI. I've attached photos below of a youtube video, the left is firefox DE and right is normal firefox, both in and out of the screenshot GUI so you can see the difference.

I'm on Windows 11, and I'm not sure what caused the issue. I've tried both refreshing and reinstalling firefox DE to no avail. Pretty stumped on this one, and would appreciate any help!

Hi!

So I'm currently using Google Authentication for my Firefox 2fa codes. However, that app is stuck offline and there is no way to get it to connect back online. I'm thinking of using another app to generate the Firefox codes. However, if I do so, by scanning the Firefox generated QR code to set up the code in the app, will this result in;

1. Having to generate a new backup code for Firefox (recovery key) 2. Voiding the generated keys on the other app I am using.

Thank you!

Two questions, please

1) My Firefox ANT add-on extension apparently has a file "time limit" set to greater than 2 minutes. In other words, if I try to download a file online that is 2 minutes or less in time (i.e.- an audio file), the ANT application does see recognize or allow it. Is there a way to change this so that any file, regardless of time, can be downloaded?

2) Whenever I open Firefox, a Mozilla Policy File also opens in a second tab. Is there a way to stop this from happening every single time? It's VERY annoying!

Thanks so much!

In the last few days, I have noticed that a number of websites are throwing me SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP errors. Most websites, particularly more modern websites, seem to not have this issue. As some more professional examples, www.twitch.tv and www.dndbeyond.com throw this error. I have tried setting temporarily TLS version fallback limit and min to 0, with no change. I'm not really sure how to go about debugging what cyphers these websites do support and why they are throwing these errors. Any help on where to start would be greatly apprecaited.

I set my browser to use English instead of my local language and I expect sites to use English by default. Now for some reason Gmail showed me a "do you want to leave this page" browser dialogue in language other than English.

Turns out, there's a new(?) option to set alternative interface languages, and I suppose websites can now choose which one to use?

Wow, just noticed, even tooltips on this website aren't in English anymore. This is extremely annoying.

I'd love to remove the alternate language from that list and leave Firefox interface exclusively in English. There is no option to remove the second language, only to move priority (see screenshot).

Searching through about:config with "language" didn't help. The closest relevant result was for the dictionaries. I do not have problems with dictionaries; "alternate" did not bring any relevant results either.
