Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks

Hi,

I wanted to check my historic but I couldn't access it. I first thought it had disappeared or something but it seems that the "show historic" button is actually hidden by my task bar. Or, in other words, the tab is too long.

I can't find anything in the setting to change it.

Thanks in advance if you know how to solve this problem.

Now, this might have been resolved already or there is a easy solution and I just dont know. But, everytime I use my Laptop in Tablet Mode the OSK will appear for a second upon hitting a Box in which Text can be written. However, it will close after a second.

I already tried turning off ".osk.detect_physical_keyboard" and on again. it didnt change Anything. Nor did changing Settings in the WIndos Settings itself.

can anyone help me with this Issue? It is really annoying and doesnt make Firefox a good option as my standard browser.

Ok. So i have never ever used MS Edge for logging into FireFox and Mozilla accounts. But low and behold, MSEdge now has these Login and PW's for these accounts.

I had brought up this observation, in the recent past, regarding how MSEdge aggregated all my logins and pw's from FireFox. And the response was for me to use a Master Password.

But this isnt the solution or the issue at hand.

The concern is why does Edge believe it is entitled to aggregate my FireFox PW's? And when does it do so? And how does it tap into the encrypted FF files? Yet, Edge has not aggregated the bookmarks in FF.

Something is not right nor ethical.

Interestingly, perhaps FireFox users that lose their logins and passwords in FireFox browser can tap into MSEdge to restore them? Seems like a reasonable solution.

My Navy Federal Credit Union did a major update to their system today 04/07/2021. After the update I was no longer prevented from logging on w/FF87.0 private window. Saw others having many problems similar to mine & you might mention to them that FF87.0 may now be more advanced than the various systems that they are not able to login to after the FF87.0 update. I was using MSEdge to access my blocked sites & almost went back to FF86.0.1.

Problems with Youtube full screen not working persist. Could be a spyware tool embedded by Google that is broken now. Not a big enough problem to force me to roll back version of FF. Saw many others were having online video problems since update. I don't have an answer for them.

Guessing as privacy protection increases our access problems will also increase as hacks, spies & adware try to battle back. Me? I like my privacy & thank Mozilla folks for their great work. God bless one & all. Stay safe.

Hi, Since we got a new printer at our workshop we have had problems with printer settings reset on both our label printer and our Normal printer.

We have set printer setting on windows and made sure they are correct.

Firefox changes our label printer settings back from lenght 50 to 296,9 and back to portrait. And when we use our label printer our normal printer changes back from landskape to potrait and from A4 to Letter. This problem started when we got a new printer, worked fine with our old printer.

Long story short, I have gaps in my history in Firefox. I'm on the latest stable desktop version, but this happens both on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04) and Windows 10.

I can't really pin down what causes this, it seems totally random. Every now and then, I'll be browsing, close the browser, realize I need to do something on a page I was recently on, I relaunch, press "ctr+h", go to the 'Today' drop down tab, and the most recent entry is multiple hours old, in some cases it's not even from the same day. The pages I was just on are nowhere to be found.

I would guess it's just late to update the history, but then there are times where I'll go through my history from a few days ago looking for a specific page I know I visited, and I'm able to find some but not all. Again, it just seems like there are random gaps in my history.

There are ongoing discussions about the high touchpad scrolling sensitivity on several Wayland applications like Firefox. Luckily, I found a workaround with this issue by setting `apz.gtk.kinetic_scroll.enabled` to `false` and increasing the default value of `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS` from `50` to `120`. However, there is still minor quirk with my scrolling experience especially at the end of each scroll or each time I pause scrolling.

This minor quirk has a lot to do with how I do the two-finger scroll gesture. For each scroll, I don't necessarily lift my fingers up immediately. I might pause for a while then scroll further until my finger reaches the end of the touchpad or I might scroll in the opposite direction without lifting my finger up. However, just having two of my fingers rest on the touchpad detects even the slightest movement. The effect is a page slightly shakes each time I pause scrolling without lifting my fingers up. Although, this minimal shake also occurs as I lift my finger up.

This behavior is detailed in a bug report here . It might have something to do with Wayland but based on my experience, the issue still persists when running Firefox through XWayland. Also, Vivaldi (Chromium) which also runs in XWayland, doesn't show this problem. In Vivaldi, the touchpad will be less sensitive (at least that's how it feels for me) each time I pause scrolling.

I already tried fiddling with the following through the `about:config` to no avail:

  • apz.touch_move_tolerance
  • apz.touch_start_tolerance
  • mousewheel.transaction.ignoremovedelay
  • mousewheel.transaction.timeout

Ok, so like the title says.. Years ago, Firefox changed from having the normal "File Edit View History" etc. as the default interface and tried to streamline everything into icons. I have no idea why. Maybe it had something to do with the mobile version. With a few customizations I was able to get the old look back, with my address bar.

Then a while back the address bar changed. It used to be that the address bar had a drop down that listed the sites you used most frequently. At some point mine just sortof froze and only lists the same 8 sites. Except its worse because 2 of them are now searches for Google and Amazon and not even the original google or amazon web pages. I cannot delete pages from this list like I could in the past, either.

Also, you could, you know... put an address in the address bar and it would take you directly to that site. Now it tries to do a search just as often as it actually takes me to the correct site.

This forcing search engines baffles me, because there's an actual search bar, right directly next to the address bar by default.

So if someone could help me understand how I can change my address bar back to being an address bar, that would be a great help to me. Second, if I could fix the drop down of sites to either be my most frequent sites, or a list of sites I add manually, that would be great also.
