Hello, Firefox support team!

Could you help me, how can I ultimately, once for all the time, for all the modes restrict to open new windows? The problem is the Firefox browser open new windows if the browser was closed and Im open a link from a different application (cant solve that at all). Or it was opened but somehow for some sites it opens a window instead of tabs. To be honest it can be a big and annoying issue on mac, if me app in full screen mode. And in genereal also. It is something I dont expect from app. I tried all the variants I found or learned in about:config which a connected with windows. It not helped me at all.

[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?

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.

Hi! I have several tabs open at once. In one, I am watching a TV show on Hulu; in another, I have a timer running (I am watching a show while exercising). The problem I am facing is that if I increase my computer's volume loud enough that I can hear the show, then when the timer goes off it is painfully loud. Is there a way to control the volume within Firefox such that the Hulu tab's volume is at, say, 80%, while the timer tab's volume is at, say, 20%? Thanks!

I am using the new MacBook Pro running Monterey 12.1. (This should not have anything to do with my question however as my husband is using an identical computer and doesn't have the problem.) I am also using the latest Firefox version. Problem: When we do identical searches for an address in Google maps, he gets a much newer satellite view than I do for the property. He, for instance, gets a house where I get bulldozed land for the same address. This occurs for me on both Firefox and Safari so I have decided it's not the browser's problem so much as the cache that is stored for Google. Nowhere can I find how to update Google Maps on a browser in a mac operating system. I am signed into my acct. both for browsers and Google. I don't have the problem on my iPhone.

Any help would be appreciated. It's hard to look at a house, when Google says it isn't there yet.

Hello

When I try to access a document file from a link on a webpage, Firefox is requiring that I first save the file to my iMac. I do not want to do this, I only want to see the file (word document). This has only just started to occur since I recently upgraded my iMac to MacOS Monterey (12.1).

Can anyone let me know how to stop this happening?
