I've been trying to access some resources hosted locally with a web extension for testing, but I've been encountering CORS errors. I've added localhost to the permissions field of the extension's manifest.json, but I still encounter the CORS errors. I saw that bugs 1220810 and 1488740 addressed similar bugs in FF84, but Firefox still won't let me send the requests. If it helps at all, I've been trying to access the resources hosted on localhost from an https context, but I was under the impression that those bugs should have fixed that issue?

Ideally I wouldn't need to implement having the server respond with the CORS headers since it only seems to be a problem with Firefox in a local context. Accessing the local resources through Chrome works, and accessing the resources through the internet with the domain name in the permissions field of a production build of the extension's manifest.json works in Firefox. Is there a way to make Firefox disregard CORS enforcement for localhost for temporary extensions?

I want FF to open multiple sites when I first load the program. But, I don't want them all to be included as a home page selection. I can do this in Chrome and Edge, but I don't see how in FF. Currently, every time I hit the home icon in FF, all tabs are reloaded to the same tabs that are already open.

hey i have firefox 8.5 - and a problem since v8.4 and present. Web pages load very slowly - the whole browser is very slow, the load on the frame RAM and CPU is reaching its zenith with the windows open. In one word the browser has become useless. Anticipating responses - 1. In safe mode - browser speeds up slightly, but websites still have lags and take a long time to load. 2. I reinstalled firefox - the errors continued. 3. I turned on firefox without logging in and with add-ons disabled - the browser worked with the errors described above. 4. I turned on firefox and logged into the profile, but turned off the add-ons - firefox - still has errors; I turned on a generation of additions (recommended) - firefox still has bugs. 5. My antivirus is not blacklisted by firefox - and I have no worms etc. 6. Standard or changed settings - firefox doesn't work well. Any suggestions or advice? Websites like FB, YT and others are simply unloadable with such lags. thanks.

This worked fine yesterday --- version 84 ----got the notice of a new version and did the upgrade and restarted Firefox. Been crashing ever since.

Running the same Extensions, same profile, same computer, etc. Same thing happens in Safe Mode.

Sometimes I get the ugly tab closed --- send report and "Restore Previous Tab" But it does not restore the previous tab.

Oh, and I do not have a Chrome folder, etc.; no special changes from the stock Firefox.

Could this be a bug in the new release, version 85??

Thanks

Hey firefox community,

I have an issue where certain add-ons are not loading their icons (greyed out), and after a computer shutdown, or simply closing the window, the icons don't seem to stay in the overflow menu (or the place where you can store addons if you don't want them on the toolbar or the overflow menu). my only option to be able to use the extension is to "re-enable" the extension from the add-on menu.

I've read somewhere on a support thread that it may have something to do with adblockers, and although I do have adguard, I'm not 100% sure if that's the issue, as I tried disabling adguard when loading firefox, and I seemed to only be able to load the add-ons correctly once, but not again (to be fair, not a lot of testing went into this hypothesis or test).

if there is some kinda issue with adguard, I would love to know what I need to do to solve this issue, and if its something else, I would also love to know what else I would need to do, short of a clean install of firefox or something similar, as I have a few add-ons with custom settings, and resetting all of that would be a pain to redo.

thanks for your help.

PS, any additional info needed can be sent over, just may take some time

Hi,

I have a big issue with Firefox crashing my computer, every day. I have many tabs open but this problem started occuring just a few days ago. Would really appreciate any clues on what could be causing this.

Here are my crash reports:

bp-39de7cd9-4a79-44cb-a5d0-1abe30210127 bp-27b0e547-3bea-496b-9288-885700210127 bp-2d9c8aa7-6502-4007-9f35-83b870210127 bp-aa89909a-cd4a-456f-ba3c-c47480210127 bp-3d32d88d-25f3-4b05-afee-ca1820210127 bp-8ea13769-6d05-4762-8848-0cebc0210127

I have tried disabling webGL, as well as disabling hardware acceleration etc. Also, the crashes usually happen after >1h of usage. I have 32gb of RAM and lots of charts open in my tabs, so not sure if its a memory or graphics issue.

Thanks in advance!

Recently I logged out from Firefox my account, and when I tried to login it asked me to enter the 6 digit verification code from my authentication application. It looks like this comes from the 2-steps authentication method. I don't remember I used this procedure before, and I don't know what is the authentication app. I have this account since 2014 and now I am not able to login to it. Is there is any way to reset the sitting through email? Please help. Note: I created another account in order to be able to ask this question.
