since the last update, the shortcut keys to highlight a word at a time left OR right are both highlighting the next word AND also jumping to the last tab. AGAIN! I noticed this was identified as a problem back around 2019 in a search. I now cannot move fluidly within text, nor highlight a word at a time quickly. Either it's whole line or simply a letter at a time... which results in a pretty incompetent, crippling experience. PLEASE FIX!!

Hi! I'm using Firefox 126.0 on Fedora 39.

Pages from Amazon.co.uk load very slowly, incompletely, or not at all. All other Web sites are fine.

I had a couple of certificate-related errors saying that the identity of the site couldn't be verified, but I can't reproduce the problem, so I can't quote the exact wording, I'm afraid.

The same Amazon pages load properly in Chrome on the same machine, and they load properly in Firefox in a VM on the same machine. That tells me network connectivity must be fine.

I've tried disabling all extensions, reverting to the default theme, running in Troubleshoot Mode, clearing cookies and site data, clearing the startup cache, disabling hardware acceleration, and creating a new profile. The new profile helps slightly, in that it loads more of the page before getting stuck. Nothing else helps at all.

I'd prefer not to refresh Firefox if I can avoid it, because I don't want to lose all my plugins and settings. This installation is five years old. Besides, a new profile didn't fix the problem.

What's the next thing to try? I'd really appreciate any ideas.

Hello. I have an issue with Firefox. Last week Facebook stopped showing images when run on Firefox. These are in the Feed and photos, etc. I tried refreshing, clearing cookies, history and cache. I changed enhanced tracking but nothing stops this. Are there any suggestions to repair this or could it be a bug? I work on Windows 10. Please help.

Thank you.

Hello,

FIRST PROBLEM (I have been unable to submit a help request from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/mozilla-account/form)

Windows 10, fully updated with the latest firefox version. Email program is MS Outlook through my employer. Email notifications are overwhelmingly loud if the global volume is sufficient for viewing content. Playing with the volume mixer doesn't help. I have searched for solutions online, and every suggested fix entails features or options that are not available on my system. Please provide complete instructions for Windows 10. Please respond to lanzcc@potsdam.edu

SECOND PROBLEM

Submit button on page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/mozilla-account/form never succeeds.

I often run into issues with PDFs in Firefox Linux. They either appear totally blank (typically after suspend/restore), or they appear with the desktop background showing through (as in the attached screenshot).

Hard refreshing the page doesn't change anything, opening a new tab and opening the PDF again doesn't change anything, opening a new window and loading the PDF doesn't change anything.

The screenshot is with this PDF: https://www.sgsw.ch/home/strom/_jcr_content/Par/sgsw_accordion_list_1838160259/AccordionListPar/sgsw_accordion_12353/AccordionPar/sgsw_downloadlist/DownloadListPar/sgsw_download_1049323524.ocFile/2023-08-31%20Mitteilung%20Elcom%20Erh%C3%B6hung%20Elektrizit%C3%A4tspreise%20f%C3%BCr%20das%20Jahr%202024.pdf

It renders correctly in Chromium.

Hey there,

during work I often open two windows of Firefox to have more information visible on my two monitors. Unfortunately I sometimes forget that I have a second window open, so I close only my "main" window and loose all tabs.

Is there a way to force Firefox to ask to close a window and loosing multiple tabs for every window open?

Right now this only happens for the last open window.

PS: I just found out about the keyboard shortcut of restoring a window (CTRL+SHIFT+N) recently. I would prefer a setting in my case.

Thanks in advance Fred

hopefully a basic question that can be answered

when I used to use edge, I would browse in incognito. sometimes I would accidentally open a link that would open in the normal browser, but I was able to simply exit without closing all my windows, including my incognito tabs

with firefox, when I'm browsing incognito, something similar would happen.

part of the problem is, that my main tabs are multiple windows, and when i choose to close them, it closes the incognito tabs as well

is there a way to prevent that?

Suddenly I have no credit card autofill option.

Using Node Express-Sessions to set cookie "httpOnly: true, secure: true, SameSite: "None" FF blocks authorization

My web site My web site allows user to login with .ejs Sign-up/Sign-in pages then delivers a React page. This works in Chrome and Safari. Https/SSL are provided by my host A2Hosting.

Firefox warns "Cookie “connect.sid” does not have a proper “SameSite” attribute value" when the cookie is set and then blocks the react page after login. If I enter the route that leads to the react page directly I can login and don't get the warning. In both cases the Storage tab in Dev tools shows the same settings for the cookie.
I made sure to remove any cookies for my site before testing the second scenario. I have tested this on Windows, Linux and Android versions of Firefox with the same results.

Here is my Express-Session instantiation ``` app.use(expressSession({

 store: new pgSession({
   pool: pool,
   tableName: 'session'
   // Insert connect-pg-simple options here
 }),
 secret: process.env.SECRET,
 resave: false,
 saveUninitialized: false,

cookie: {

   httpOnly: true,
   Secure: true,
   SameSite: "None",
   path: ['/'],
   maxAge: 60 * 60 * 1000 * 5
 }
 // Insert connect-pg-simple options here

})) ``` I've tried changing the path to include the react app route, I've added it to Cors white list and I converted it to open with an .ejs file instead of .html with no results.

Thanks for your support and for a great browser

My old hard drive died I couldn't recover it. I cannot mount the disk to another OS etc. The session files cannot be retrived. However I had over 100 tabs open in Firefox I want to retrieve before the disk crashed. I was signed in to firefox all the time in the old computer.

I now have a new computer, I signed in to firefox and I can recover the bookmarks. But I don't see any option to recover the lots of tabs and sessions from my previous dead disk. It seems there is tab sync options between 2 devices that is concurrently signed in. But I can't sign in to a dead disk. I also can't recover the file.

How can I reteive my old sessions with many tabs? I'm hoping firefox have a way of knowing all my tabs since I was signed in and sync before the disk crash.
