I am an application developer for a customer information system and we have dozens of clients using our web based product.

Some users recently updated to firefox version 123 and are reporting issues in two different areas of our product. Both of these areas involve java script. These clients running under prior version of firefox did not have any problem and if they switch to another browser the issue is resolved. But they need to run using firefox. I have the recent version of firefox and an older version and am able to re-produce the behavior. I will also provide a screen shot of the page working and the page not working as well.

The issue is, we have a payment page in our application. The user enters a payment amount and our page then fills in several values for them and as other values are entered eventually an Add Payment button is enabled. What is not happening is when the payment is entered the action is not run and the page treats the field as not existing and eventually displays a required field icon. There is nothing the user can do at that point to get the Add Payment button to get enabled.

Hi!

For a few weeks now I've had the problem that my Mozilla Firefox browser keeps crashing or hanging (the image goes black, needs to be updated or then crashes completely). This happens regardless of the website you open (e.g. google maps, mymaps, canva, instagram, google sheets, google drive, amazon, etc.).

Here are some of today's about:crashes IDs: bp-eee64bce-504e-4b09-bd26-d74a40240303 bp-aebd34b7-cdc1-49bd-9090-ca6b00240303 bp-b0970e4e-7f08-4672-9a4d-ca16f0240303 bp-14ded6d2-b81a-4d76-b79a-26b000240303 bp-d751619a-ce2f-4ffa-817d-0557c0240303 bp-27d145c4-4ef7-481d-9ffa-12e570240303

I already checked my RAM with memtest86. There were no errors. My tribers are updatet and I use Avast Antivirus & Cleanup Premium.

Do you have any idea, why this happens?

I run a website that is custom built and we are seeing a potential issue in which the headers and header links are showing in the reader view of every page above the content for the page. But I'm also not sure if this is necessarily bad or might be affecting SEO.

Does anyone know whether this is detrimental to SEO, and if so, are there any suggestions on what might be causing this to happen in the code?

Hi!


This is an old question, but now over the time i can be more specific with this problem. What i know now in windows 10: - with firefox ESR sandboxie works fine all the time (now I use v 115.8.0); - with current firefox (v123) what happens is, after install current version, every time i open firefox, it works fine, but if i select "pause forcing programs", to change something in firefox, this means open firefox without sandboxie, now the first time i open firefox again sandboxie, it´s freeze, and can´t use for this moment now firefox sandboxie. Only works without sandboxie.

Thanks in advance.

I have a current version of Firefox (v123.0 running on Windows 10) but I can't do what I used to be able to do? (And it is making me nuts!)

I used to be able to resize the contents of a site - such as youtube or wordpress or tumblr - there would be a little % on the far right of the URL bar, and I could adjust that until the site was readable and all the pieces I wanted fit in. I can't find a control that will change this for me in the new version. Is it somewhere else? Did that control not port into the new version? Is is gone for good? (I really hope not!) I realize this is such a small problem, but it affects how I interact with basically every site online.

What makes this extra frustrating is that I'm not even certain I am using the correct terms for the thing I want -

Thank you for your patience -

A couple of weeks ago I migrated from Edge to Firefox. I exported and imported my bookmarks. All was good. Suddenly this morning, my bookmarks are inoperative. The folder structure is there, containing entries that appear to be my bookmarks. If I left-click on one, nothing happens. If I right-click on one and choose Edit Bookmark, the fields in the dialogue are all empty.

  • The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
  • Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Learn more... Try Again

I have NEVER gotten this error message for any other website. And the strangest thing? Sometimes I CAN access Wikitionary with zero problems, but this phenomena tends to only happen when I attempt to access the website very late at night or really early in the morning. I cannot think of a single thing I have done differently when this happens.

By the way, I am able to access Wikitionary from Microsoft Edge just fine, it is ONLY Firefox where I have this problem.

For years, I have had the Bookmark Toolbar always show on my initial page and all tabs at the top of page. Something happened and now it does not. I have tried resetting per instructions and it will show on my current page but then not show up my new tab and will disappear from the initial page. I tried a refresh to correct and that did not work either. I was able to get them to show on the left side of the screen but I much prefer them at the top and want to get back to that layout.

Hello there!

I have been trying to edit an existing browser extension (for the sole reason of adding new features to it for myself), and I've been trying to add it to my Firefox browser. However, upon trying to install it to the browser, it throws an error saying: "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt". I've been trying to read more into this issue all across the internet, but none of the recommendations seem to be working.

I tested my extension locally and with using the about:debugging temporary add-on method, and everything seemed fine.

I tried to re-configurate the 'xpinstall.signatures.required' variable by setting it to false (even thought this method is considered unsafe in most cases), and the issue still occurs

I also tried adding a new gecko ID to it as stated in this article, but to no avail: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/manifest.json/browser_specific_settings

And last, but certainly not least, I tried compressing the extension with web-ext aswell.

My question is - is there a way to add this extension permanently to my browser without submitting it to Mozilla? I did not create this extension, I only added custom integrations to it for myself.

And more importantly - is there a way to add it to the basic Firefox browser, which is not Firefox developer of Firefox nightly? Or maybe create a desktop shortcut that will always start the browser in debug mode, always containing the extension as "temporary"?

I can see that many posts and questions have already been posted regarding this "custom add-on" topic, but my situation is a bit different since my goal is to only use this add-on by myself (and I'm also revisiting this topic since none of the previous suggestions worked in my case)

Any comments, helps, or even links would be greatly appreciated! Have a great day!

Today a website told me I needed to enable JavaScript in order to continue, despite the fact that it is enabled. At first, when I received this message, I turned off the "NoScript" extension and tried again, but the website still gave me that same message. So then I went to the about:config page. and it showed that JavaScript is enabled because it showed a value of "true". This sort of thing has happened more than once in the past. I'm forced to go to another browser such Microsoft Edge or Chrome, where I do not encounter this problem. Why is this happening in Firefox, and what can I do about it? My operating system is Windows 10 Professional, and if you need any other details, please let me know. I will appreciate your assistance.

For the past week, when I sign into Facebook, the news feed is constantly refreshing itself. Once in a while the first post will stay, but the remainder of the news feed keeps refreshing. It is impossible to read anything as posts flash on and off, mostly off. The news feed is the only thing that is affected, visiting pages for likes and groups load and display properly, as do the games I play. The same occurs if in the private window mode. This does not happen if in the Chrome browser. What can be done to correct this situation?
