I normally use Firefox desktop on my Linux computer.

Last week, I started using it on a public computer running Windows. I installed Firefox Portable and then logged/synced into my Firefox account on this Win computer. I noticed that in the Firefox Portable Windows “about:preferences” page, it says “Your browser is being managed by your organization”, which links to about:policies. In that “about:policies” page, it shows this https://i.imgur.com/JmD8nXg.png Policy Name: DisableAppUpdate Policy Value: true. Now I’m back on my Linux desktop computer and it also has this “managed by your organization” message in “about:preferences” and the same “about:policies” stuff. In other words, it appears that this policy was copied from the Windows public computer to my personal Linux computer. I don’t want that.

How can I undo this? And how can I block this sort of policy syncing?

I have found that after a short time Firefox stops displaying images in Facebook and only shows a description of what it thinks the image is. I have Firefox version 95.0.2 (64-bit) with Windows 10 with the latest updates installed. I have a Dell laptop with an i7 cpu and 63 GB of RAM. This does not occur with other browsers. Reloading the page does not fix it, only a complete shutdown and startup of Firefox.

Hello,

So I have shortcuts configured in 3 rows that open on each new tab. These shortcuts contain my most used websites. However not all the shortcut squares are actually filles on each row. And that is how I want to keep it.

But during any browsing session I see that the rest of the shortcut squares are being filled from the current history of the browsing session from other websites.

Recently I had to reinstall Firefox and as far as I know I configured everything the same. But in my old install I managed to keep a fixed set of websites in those shortcut rows and NOTHING from the browsing history was added.

So, how do I configure the shortcuts that only the websites I add there manually stay there and NO other websites will be added from the browsing history?

I use Firefox quite a bit and installed it on my wife’s MacBook air and I’m trying to get her to use it. I recently set up a gmail account for my brother-in-law who does not have Internet and uses my wife’s MacBook air when he visits us. 


A couple of days ago the mystery icon—Firefox logo with a tv screen on the upper right—started appearing on my MacBook pro every time she turned on her computer. There does not seem to be a way to get rid of it. Any suggestions?

I have no problem using Chrome , Brave browser to access pages on my dev server. My front end (React) is on localhost 3000, server is localhost 3001. This used to work, just two weeks ago. I'm on FF v95.0.2.

I've tried everything, headers in my index.html, cleared cookies and cache, various network settings, ran it in troubleshooting mode, restarted FF. I have all cors request enable on the server.

Anything I might be missing ?

edit: Found my mistake, had another app opened on the same port , apologies.

Hi, The program SEEMS to start but Firefox does not load one singel page. I get no errormessage but firefox does not even try to open pages.

Also, if I try to go into "settings" nothing happens (no errormessage, but settings does not open).

I have tried to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. Does not help.

If I try some other bowser everything works fine. The problem started after I did a total uninstallation of Office365 (does not need to be depending on it but it could be a connection).

Have searched the web without finding a solution and now I ask for help here, I really do want to keep using Firefox but currently it is impossible.

according to the add-on page in Settings, the AdBlock Plus add-on is enabled in my browser, but it doesn't appear to be working. so I am trying to access the menu options to control it. to do that, I need to add the icon to my toolbar.

this article: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/955157

explains two methods:

1. go to Settings --> Customize Toolbars, and drag the icon to the toolbar. this doesn't work, because the icon is not there to be dragged (even after I restore defaults).

2. go to the View Menu --> Toolbars --> Add-on Bar and move the icon from one toolbar to another.

quite apart from the fact that it took me two days to figure out how to get the View Menu to appear, that procedure doesn't work either because after View Menu --> Toolbars --> the Add-on Bar is not listed.

can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong.


thank you,

Very recently I've noticed that Firefox(v95.0) is giving me an error for the Microsoft documentation site https://msdn.microsoft.com/.

MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_OCSP_RESPONSE_FOR_CERT_MISSING

I use this site almost daily and have not had any trouble, and it appears to be fine on other browsers like Chrome and Edge.

Has there been a new setting changed or added recently that I can enable/disable to allow this site through?

I use a particular web site frequently :

https://www.triumph-trophy.com

On all of the Pages at this site there are Advertisement banners, one across the top of the page, and one down the left side of the page.

Clicking in those Banners used to open the respective advertisers Site. I can't remember now whether it opened in a new Window or a new Tab.

Recently, and possibly since one of the latest Firefox updates, these Advertising Banner Links have stopped working, and nothing at all happens if they are "clicked".

They DO work if I right click and select "Open link in new tab", or "Open link in new window"

They DO work when clicked if I open the Page in Google Chrome.

I have followed advice from previous similar reported problems, without success.

I don't have any Extensions enabled, and am running the Default Theme. I have cleared the cache and Cookies.

Any ideas ?

Thanks.

I live with Firefix always in full screen. I Don't like seeing any bars or buttons of any kind.

Befor the latest update, when I moved my mouse to the top of the screen my tabs popped down and in the top right corner was the standard icons for "minimize" "maximize" and "exit".

With the latest update the tabs are there but the 3 buttons have gone.

If I exit full screen (F11) then they are there again, but I dont want to have to exit full screen every time I change between programes which I do every few mins. I'd be popping pages in and out of full screen every few mins!

How do I get the buttons back all the time?

Hey everyone,

I recently had to do a PC reset and thus lost all my files, settings and programs FF included. Upon reinstalling I don't have the option to save, view or sync credit card info. The whole section is missing from my settings.

I have already gone to about:config and enabled both of the autofill settings to true (as suggested in other Q&As) and restarted multiple times with no luck.

Any ideas why I would be missing this option?

Suddenly the backgrounds to many Firefox screens - browser, history, settings - changed from white to black. This makes it very difficult for me to read whats on these screens. How do I change them back to white?

The browser screen was black and I did that "about:config" thing and toggled the "browser.proton.enabled" to False which converted the background of the browser to back to white but all the other drop down menus are still black. The bookmark toolbar menu is black, the background of the hamburger menu is black, and the "customize menu" background is black. These areas are now difficult for me to see.

When FF developers start fooling around with colors in the FF browser they need to tread lightly and be aware of all accessibility problems their users may have. Where accessibility is concerned, one size doesn't fit all. Some people have problems with white backgrounds and others, like myself, have problems reading screens with black backgrounds. One simply MUST be aware of sight problems in users.

P.S. I tried uploading photos of the black backgrounds in question but the upload wheel just kept spinning. The photo size was within accepted parameter. Also, I tried to check the box "Email me when someone answers the thread" but that wouldnt work either.
