When I'm using the Firefox browser a small pop-up box often appears saying "Must provide password." If I type in my actual password and hit Enter, the box just pops up again. If I hit the Cancel button it goes away and doesn't seem to affect my use of the browser. Is there a way to get it to stop popping up?

Version 96.0 on macOS

Started a few days ago. Upon shutting down my Mac at night and turning it on in the morning, I always have to log back in to my Google accounts. This doesn't happen with any other websites and I do not have the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" setting enabled.

If I simply quit Firefox without shutting down my computer, I remain logged in to Google. It's only after a shutdown that I get logged off.

Getting this message on Mac OS 12.1 Firefox version 96.0.1:

"Connection denied by Geolocation Setting. Reason: Blocked country: United States The connection was denied because this country is blocked in the Geolocation settings. Please contact your administrator for assistance."

There is no administrator. This is my personal computer.

I'm in Canada and Bell is my ISP. The website I'm going after is: https://www.co.comal.tx.us/

Do not tell me to use a VPN. I want to be able to modify whatever setting is blocking this country.

I'm having problems opening saved (archived) Facebook pages. The problem is the page opens without formatting or layout, just text and images.

I've had this problem before when I was using Firefox 68. The solution was to roll back a security patch by doing the following as proposed by jscher2000:

You can roll back the patch as follows if you want to see what difference it makes:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste uniq and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the privacy.file_unique_origin preference to switch the value from true to false

That had worked until recently. I checked "privacy.file_unique_origin" and its still has a value of 'false' but the webpages are not opening properly, even ones I saved over the last few years.

What can I do?

MediaWiki 1.35 login fails with "Secure Connection Failed" and no error code (HTTP/2 related?)

[Update: This works correctly with HTTP/2 disabled, so it is somehow HTTP/2 related. Firefox's partner is terminated with ATS 8.0.2, so this is most likely an interaction with Traffic Server, but debugging help is still needed.]

I recently upgraded from Mediawiki 1.31 to 1.35 on Debian 10. Since this upgrade, attempts to log in with Firefox are impossible -- Safari and Chrome work fine. Firefox 96.0 displays the attached error "Secure Connection Failed" but no security error is provided. This seems to be a defect in Firefox, but I am having difficulty diagnosing further.

Looking at both server trace logs as well as the Firefox debugging tools, I see Firefox does an expected POST request to the login page:

 POST https://newwiki.convivian.com/mediawiki/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&returnto=Main Page

The MediaWiki server replies with a 302 Found and redirect to the Main Page on successful login, but Firefox considers this response insecure on some way that is not indicated. The "Security" tab in DevTools shows no security errors on the transaction.

I am able to reproduce this on multiple machines running Firefox 96.0, as well as with Troubleshooting Mode enabled. No errors occur with other tested browsers.

Is there a way to extract further debugging information from the browser?

This ONLY happens in Firefox and started today. Reddit works fine in Safari and Chrome. I have tested this on multiple computers and it's blocked across all four that I have access to.

Mac OS 12.1 Firefox 96.0.1

Only extensions I'm using are: AdBlock Plus, Facebook Container, Reddit Enhancement Suite. I have disabled them all and reddit still shows as blocked. I have gone through the settings, cleared cache, etc and cannot find a solution for this.

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)

When I opened my browser today, and tried to login to one of my sites, I discovered that all but three (3) of my 100s of stored logins and passwords had disappeared. I checked the Firefox browsers on my phone and iPad and they're all there, just not on my iMac. Yesterday, Firefox bumped me out of my account and I had to log back in. I didn't notice this problem then.

1 - I need to know how to download all my passwords before they disappear from my mobile accounts too. 2 - How do I get them back on my desktop browser?

Hello everyone,

whenever I play a video in fullscreen mode, the system panel is not visible on the other display.

For example, the fullscreen video is playing on the secondary display, while on the integrated one there are no windows open. If I click on the desktop, the panel will be shown again but the focus won't be on Firefox, so I can't control the video with my keyboard.

Is there a way to change this behaviour? I've already tried tinkering with the settings in about:config but I couldn't find the solution.

I have Firefox on an old MacBook which hasn't had its macOS updated for a couple of years, and a new Mac running up-to-date Monterey. In both, Firefox has just developed the same problems at the same time: pages won't load, and the program won't shut down normally -- I have to use force quit. Safari works fine and I've tried all the usual solutions, bar deleting and reloading the app. I don't want to do that yet since the problem is the same on two different computers and an old and a new macOS. Since Firefox has recently updated, has that caused the problem?


edited iOS to macOS as iOS is a mobile OS for iPhones and moved thread to (desktop) Firefox section.
