Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks

Hi comunity.

I'm trying to use the Firefox ADMX GPO files wtih a Windows 2012 R2 domain controller. The GPO's are applied on my test system. I checked it with gpresult. But no rule are affected on Firefox. If I use "about:policies" the message is:

What is my mistake?

I'm looking forward to your reply.

If someone knows how I can get these "Allowed Threats" to not be allowed anymore, that would be great!

Browser sites open half screen instead of full screen

In Firefox on desktop Mac:

After a search, then clicking on a search result from the list of options, the selected link always opens as a half screen instead of the normal full screen I've always had in the past. I then have to manually spread the half screen result out to full screen.

Clicking on any bookmarked link, they still all open normal full screen.

Don't have the problem in Safari but I prefer using Firefox.

This problem suddenly came up after many years of normal 'full screen' Firefox operation.

How can I make these search results open as a (normal) full screen in Firefox - like they always used to do?

Not very computer savvy if someone can give me 'Firefox for Dummies' assistance.

I don't see another place to post this. If someone provides a link to a tracker I'll be happy to repost. I should also probably open these items in different posts. I will do so if required.

I see a few places where Multi-Account Containers can be improved:

1) More icons - ability to use all Google Material Icons, even if the ID is manually entered 2) More colors - with color wheel or entry of #RGB 3) From the Multi-Account Containers Support page, "The sync feature will align Multi-Account Containers on different computers" - This does not appear to be working with v87 on two systems. 4) Also from that page, "Assign a website to a container" does not appear to be documented: Three dot Page Actions in address bar > Alway open this in a container.

Am I missing existing functionality or documentation?

Thanks!

Hi all,

Have a new Dell XPS, using Chrome as my primary browser.. however its a pig on power consumption. I recently switched back to Windows, was a iOS user for last 10 years.. Remember the good Windows XP Firefox days...

I am unable to go back using the track pad, my gesture when I swipe with two fingers from left to right doesn't work... However this works just fine on MS Edge, or on Chrome. I am able to scroll up and down, and zoom in and out of text using my track pad, but my back gesture doesn't work... Has anyone had this issue before?

All the best, GB

The firefox browser does not prompt to select a valid user client authentication certificate (stored in the Windows cert store under Personal User certs) for access to sites. This means the browser can not be used for certificate based MFA.

Changing the browser to use system certs (security.enterprise_roots.enabled = True) does not help resolve the issue

In recent version Firefox blocks all popups in the private mode even on sites, where I have popups enabled in normal mode. I am pretty sure it is a new behavior. Popups can be enabled even in private mode, but it is not saved. In some earlier version Firefox in the private mode used to apply popup settings from both private and normal mode. Is there any way to get this behaviour back except downgrade ?

Hi I got a problem which I think is caused by Firefox/Facebook.

Sometimes (quite often) when I'm in Facebook and scrolling down, suddenly Facebook starts to scroll on its own and then the cursor starts flickering. The only way to correct this is to restart the computer. Very often when i log in for the first time afters such a restart all my desktop icons are shown wide apart, and the I have to logoff/logon again. Then it works until the next time.

I have switched the hardware acceleration of in Firefox with the same result.

Acctually, it happend right now, and now I don't have Facebook open.

If I can't fix it i have to stop using Firefox!

In Twitter, when I use the Copy link to Tweet button and then try to paste the link to share in Gmail it fails to show (it is there, but invisible). If I copy the link into another document and then redo cut and paste into Gmail it works OK. It is Firefox specific and something to do with the ?s=20 part of the link... if I change the 20 to 21 then it works fine. And if I copy the link in Edge it works fine. Can anyone help? Thanks
