When I type a website address beginning with "https://" it is searched with Google. For instance, when I type "https://www.gotomeet.me/xxx", this returns a google search. When I type "www.gotomeet.me/xxx", this correctly opens the webpage. When is beginning a term with the standard "https://" searching with Google? How do I stop this? It is annoying, as I am often copying and pasting these website addresses.

P.S. This began after a Firefox update.

Best regards,

D.S.

[Firefox 89.0.1] Google Maps loads fine, then, AFTER load is complete, goes "dark".

I used to be able to use Google Maps without problem on Firefox.

I'm not sure exactly when the problem arose, but I'm positive it is broken on my Firefox 89.0, and now on Firefox 89.0.1 - The problem is as follows:

When I load the https://www.google.fr/maps/ site, I see the map load, I see the towns, the roads, the "pins" (shops, points of interest, etc.); I have the names displayed, it looks fine. Then, once it's done loading, the map background disappears, and I'm left with only the names and the pins. Enclosed is a picture of the area around Paris, France, after it "went dark".

If I drag and drop the map, or zoom in or out, the map reappears and is perfectly readable. But as soon as I stop moving it, the map tiles disappear again, and I'm stuck with only the names and pins again.


I've checked under other browsers (Edge, for instance), and the problem seems to occur only on Firefox. I've removed ALL my google-related cookies (because of old answers to problems with Google Maps, saying to try that), and it didn't help. I tried reloading the page, emptying the cache, didn't work either.

Am I the only one to experience this ? Any ideas as to why it happens, or how to correct it ?

Using Firefox with Office 365 on Mac

I've been using Office 365 subscription through work on my Mac with Firefox for years. Today, it stopped working. It was actually quite scary: when I logged in, all my information was gone (all email, etc.). When I check Microsoft, it states it supports Firefox for all major OSes except Mac. I can still access Office 365 on Chrome, but I don't like being forced to use a browser I don't like from a company I don't like. IT help through my work has been useless. They just said use Edge.

Does anybody know the status of this change? Is it intended to be permanent or is it a temporary issue? If it's a permanent choice to exclude Mac users from using Firefox, what is the best way to signal protest against this and maybe get Microsoft to rethink making a major, popular browser useless? I would like to support Firefox/Mozilla in pushing back against this potentially significant move to limit their usability. Thanks.

WebRTC based applications don't work (Firefox behind proxy)

Hello :)

OS: Windows 10 1809 LTSC Firefox Version: 89

Firefox is behind a proxy and I have problems with applications like BigBlueButton and DFNConf(Pexip), which using WebRTC.

about:webrtc shows problems with ICE. It seems Firefox doesn't use the proxy config properly on this step. The Proxy is set via GPO.

Testing with other browsers show that there is no issue with webRTC. Only firefox doesn't work.

Is this still a bug or should I try some other configurations?
