I have a fresh install of Debian 12.5, which came with Firefox 115.7.0esr. Firefox is inconsistent in following the settings I put in. For example, I specified the download folder, but it still automatically saved to the original default folder. But when I clicked to ask me before downloading, it does! And it gives me the 1st option to save the the folder I specified. But if I uncheck the "ask me" button, it goes back to putting downloads in my home directory, which I don't want. Another example is I've set it to "open previous windows and tabs on startup", but it doesn't. When I close Firefox with several tabs open, the next time I start it I have just the home tab. Yet when I look in "settings" it still says it's supposed to be opening my previous tabs. This is more annoying than the download issue. How can I get Firefox to follow the settings, which ARE being saved?

Hello,

I appreciate very much the recent security changes in Firefox 127, about mixed content. I think it really does improve both security and privacy, but I have HTTPS websites in a local network (private IP addresses) that load some images from a local IP camera over HTTP. I do not have control over these IP camera images, so as a temporary workaround I am allowing the whole website to be delivered over plain HTTP.

It's not a huge security issue, because it's on a local network which I access over the Internet via a VPN, but I would prefer to keep the website on HTTPS and allow mixed content for this specific IP address, so to keep the protection fully enabled when I browse the Internet.

Is there a way to enter a specific IP address in an exception list, so to selectively allow mixed content? Or, in alternative, is it possible to specify that all web requests from private IP addresses (RFC 1918) should allow mixed content?

Many thanks,

Piero

The "Triage Manager" for Mozilla Refuses to assign anyone to a seven year old open problem

I need to go over the head of the Mozilla Triage manager who has left https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1406865 open without a resolution for **seven years**. How do I do that? This is a bug reported in Firefox 57 and **still** not fixed in Firefox 125. I cannot find any support category anywhere in the Mozilla website that covers appealing a decision by one of their employees. The last comment from this uncooperative indivisual is "But given we support it on macOS and Windows yeah, it seems not very objectionable." Who is this **clerk** to override the fact that a number of customers very much find this "objectionable". I cannot find anything on https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/contact/ that addresses this issue. I cannot find even a surface mail address for Mozilla. For example my complaint has nothing to do with any of the following:

   I’m having problems with using Firefox
   I want to donate to Mozilla
   I have questions about using Mozilla’s trademarks
   I’d like to report misuse of a Mozilla trademark
   I want to hold an event in a Mozilla space
   I want Mozilla to sponsor my event
   I’d like permission to use a Mozilla logo
   I’m interested in Pocket’s sponsored content on Firefox
   I’m a member of the Press and have a question for Mozilla

Yes I am having a problem with Firefox, but the clerk responsible has, through sitting on this issue for **seven years**, basically told the entire community that he doesn't give a reservoir.

In particular I feel this unacceptable behaviour should be brought to the attention of senior management, but there are no contacts for anybody in senior management.

The video from most websites plays out of sequence. It appears that approximately every one second plays its frames in reverse order. This occurs with most video streaming services and major sites. For example, all Amazon, Sam's Club, Walmart and other website product videos. Occasionally, Amazon product videos just say not compatible. However, YouTube videos with very rare excepts play fine in Firefox. Those problem sites play the videos fine under Edge for Linux. But, I would much rather use Firefox. I'm sure this a codec related issue. Possibly related to the NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 video card in this computer running openSUSE 15.5. But after much searching, I'm at a loss on how to resolve the problem.

With increasing frustration, I'm am trying top retain certain cookies when deleting other cookies and history. Instructions I read say use "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox closes" with exceptions noted, and do not toggle "clear history when Firefox closes." Except that in my Firefox settings, they work in tandem - the choices are both on or both off. I can't turn one on and the other off. Under manage exceptions, I am entering the entire website address with the https. Any suggestions? Thanks. Joe Markarian

Since few days I experienced a strange beaviour on my firefox:

if I press and keep pressed a key, say backspace or left arrow or just a letter key, then usually I see repetitions, e.g. fast erasing back, fast moving back and forward or just typing something like:

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

In my gmail composer this does not happens anymore, and if I need to erase a word I need to repetitely press and relase backspace key.

I erased firefox and make a fresh install, via snap, with completely new profile, but the problem remains. It does not seem to appear on other places, for instance when typing this question everything is fine. If I use gmail with other browser (same pc) then all is fine.

I have ubuntu with all updates regurarly installed, uname -a give me Linux mypc 5.15.0-101-generic #111-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 5 20:16:58 UTC 2024 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


How can I fix this? Where I have to look?

hi, some websites lately have password inputs set as "text" in the html and that confuses firefox into NOT suggesting saved login/password for those fields.

i inspected the password field in question and this is the correspondent html:

​<input autocomplete="off" id="PasswordInput_68.39270255653231" class="ant-input false" placeholder="Password" maxlength="32" pxunit="14" buttonwidth="100" timeformat="YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss" store="[object Object]" langlocale="[object Object]" type="text" value="">

btw, if i change the type to "password" it DOES suggest the saved login/password.

PS : the website in question is a login page for a dahua XVR.

4 3 24 Hello Novice here so apologies if confused. For years have been able to use NATIONAL EXPRESS COACH UK SITE to book travel, last successful use was 19.10.2023 but 9.2.2024 site would not allow me to enter my account nor clicking 'forgotten password' option failed. Seaching via FIREFOX/GOOGLE for ACCOUNT LOG IN does not load any pages, just this https://book.nationalexpress.com/my-account/#/profile/view or https://book.nationalexpress.com/my-account/ if the above pasted page 'headers' help. NATIONAL EXPRESS COACH UK SITE allows booking pages to load but refuses to allow anything related to Customer Account, where one would not have to pay booking fees. Their latest reply is below: 'With regard to the password reset function, from the home page, after clicking you wish to sign in, followed by selecting Existing Customer, when pressing Forgotten Password a new web page should load. In order to isolate this process, one method would be to use the Incognito private function of the web browser. It may be called InPrivate, Private or similar depending on the browser, Chrome, Bing, Safari, Firefox etc. If you can go through the National Express logging in procedure, this should work. Also, could you ensure your web browser is running the most current version too. 'Another option you could try is to use a different web browser to see if that alleviates the problem." Using FIREFOX PRIVATE does not solve the problem, my system shows MOZILLA FIREFOX FOR LINUX MINT mint-001 -1.0 is what the last MINT UPDATE has provided, so presume the most recent version, so the only remaining change would be to install CHROME but why would FIREFOX suddenly fail to show such pages related to the COACH ACCOUNT LOG-IN in Feb 2024 when Oct 2023, no problems occurred? Have never had CHROME installed, as used FIREFOX since 2011. Anyone else experienced this problem OR could advise on the matters. Thanks in advance.

I've looked for solutions, some had weird MTU settings, some needed to enable hardware acceleration in Chrome, but haven't found a solution that works. Created a new profile to try that out, but still no dice.

I can do a test recording in Google Meet, which displays my video just fine, but when playing back, it's just a black screen, and that is also what happens if I share my screen. Participants get a lot of black.

I've been using Firefox with Google meet for many years, and never had this problem before. I did report the issue in Meet, but it's not likely to attract much attention from Google.

Suggestions much appreciated.
