Date: 10 May 2022 AusEST

Firefox 100.0 (64-bit) Mac desktop: Apple Silicon Mac mini (M1, 2020) - macOS Monterey v12.3.1 (problem occurred prior years using Intel/iMac 2015; and previous macOS) Extensions: DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials; HTTPS Everywhere; NoScript Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems,Inc. Location: Australia EST


I am wondering if the following is a known problem. If so, I haven’t been able to find the solution online.

I keep copies of home rental online payments as proof of payment should there be a discrepancy with the real estate agency.

This problem can also apply in other situations, for example payment of online purchases, or movement of large amounts of money to varying institutions.

Sometimes the bank payment is delayed and I would like to ensure that not only the date of payment is accurate but also that the time of payment is relatively close. I am finding that the file printed when banking via Firefox is not time dated relatively close to the time of payment. I use Firefox solely for banking as a secure method.

Upon payment I am presented with a bank receipt and an option to print it, all within Firefox’s desktop application. After pressing the PRINT button I choose to print as PDF and save to the computer. The resulting file is what I am referring to.

The pdf receipt is shown with default details at the top and bottom of the page, the bottom being where the date and time of pdf printing occurred. The discrepancy is between that time shown and the actual time of payment. The difference can be sometimes up to 12 hours!

Can someone please assist me to rectify the situation?

Kind regards, Harauld

Hello!

I always use private browsing so I thought that my history was totally not being saved, but discovered recently that when I started to type within the search field, that many of my past searches were listed in the search field with the type highlighted in purple. I had to manually go in and delete all of these past searches. I don't want any search history to be saved. Is there a setting in preferences that I'm somehow missing? Why is Firefox saving these past searches if I have it set to Always Use Private Browsing?

Thank you!

I have Firefox 99 for Mac "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is unchecked History is set to "Remember History" Enhanced Tracking Protection is set to "standard"

Yet every time I return to a site where I've checked "remember me" , I'll get prompted to login, and perhaps also get a security message "you've logged in from a new computer" in my email from the site.

Is there an easy way to verify that Firefox is storing cookies for a site. Maybe an option to right-click on a site's web page and view "cookies are stored for this site" in the context menu? I'm losing a lot of my productivity time logging back into sites that I just logged into earlier in the day.

My mac air book (firefox 100.0 - 64-bit) won't let me log on because it won't accept firefox primary password or or mozilla master password.

However, my imac desktop (firefox 100.0.1 - 64-bit) has no problem with the same passwords.

Both devices say firefox and all other software are up to date or as up to date as they can be for their vintage..

Gatway Timeout Error when trying to use Ebay Catagory Links

I'm completely at a loss with this. Firefox is not able to open eBay category lists. Clicking on the drop-down "Shop by Category", link or any of the sub-category links within the menu go nowhere except for a gateway timeout error after a number of minutes. This is incredibly inconvenient, because unless you are looking for a specific item by searching for it, you have no way to browse through categories. I don't seem to have this problem with any other website that I can think of, but since I use eBay quite regularly (daily), it has long ago gone from annoying to down right intolerable.

This isn't a problem with Safari, but I seldom use that browser preferring to use Firefox instead.

I've tried every solution I've come across. From giving permissions, turning of Firefox Enhanced Tracking, turning off any ad blockers I have. Using Troubleshoot Mode, manually turning off and on extensions, clearing history and all remnants of eBay in case of corrupt cookies or anything else for that matter. I've even lit black candles while dancing beneath a dark moon in hopes of exercising what seems to be a long resident multi-year demon. And the damn thing isn't even paying any rent!

I am on an iMac, using Catalina with everything up to date.

So, I have two questions:

1.) Does everyone else still have this problem? I've seen pages of search results on Google for this and similar issues with eBay and Firefox stemming back three or more years.

2.) If you do not have this problem, what have you done other than fixes I've listed? And if you happened to include a particular color candle and phase of the moon differing from mine even that suggestion would be appreciated. :)

Hi. I've been having this problem with my iMac for sometime, but now it's affecting my Macbook Pro, as well. Both machines are 2015, running OS 10.15.7.

They have problems loading webfonts (I get the annoying question marks). I tried creating a new test user, and the issue persisted. Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks!

Gmail "open message in new window" redirect fails since updating to FF 100.0.1

I have two Gmail Workspace accounts logged in to two different tabs in one FF browser window. Have used this set-up for years. However, ever since updating to FF 100.0.1, when I try to open an email thread in a new window (pops out the message into a separate window), there is a "cannot properly re-direct error" that appears.

Only way to resolve this appears to be clearing the cache for mail.google.com and signing in again to both accounts. However, this solution only appears to work for a day or two before the "redirect error in a new window" occurs again.

This error does not occur in Private Browsing mode, and Google Workspace support has confirmed it is not an issue with Gmail/ Workspace.

Any thoughts on how this can be fixed? I have disable all "enhanced tracking protection"

Thank you for your time and help,

Hi, for me the most intuitive behavior for creating new tabs is to insert after current when using the keyboard shortcut, and inserting at the end when clicking the plus sign at the end of the row. I'm making the switch from Chrome and the Open New Tab Here extension enables this distinction. Curious if there's an existing solution, or would an additional config setting be required?
