Have played FB games for years but Hidden Express suddenly stopped working correctly. I have tried everything I can think of with Fire fox browser. Last effort was a refresh. Hidden Express technical support gave me suggestions which I have done but no help. Any suggestions would be great. Fire fox and Chrome are the recommended browsers or this game.

I just tried to open a new window using File, New Window. It is GONE. I always use that. Now all I get are New Tab New Container Tab (grayed out so I can't select that) New Private window, some other stuff.

The same is true if I right click. I get: Open Link in New Tab Open Link in New Private window.

What did I do to cause these changes?

Windows 8.1 Firefox 102.0.1 Clean install with a brand new profile

Noodling around about:config I discovered that the boolean value browser.sessionstore.enabled does not exist.

Interestingly though, it's numerical partner browser.sessionstore.interval does exist and was set to 15000. (15000 miliseconds = 15 seconds)

I was planning to increase this interval significantly. However...

It is my understanding that browser.sessionstore.enabled must be set to true for browser.sessionstore.interval to have any effect.

So what gives? Why is there a browser.sessionstore.interval set to 15000 when the prerequisite browser.sessionstore.enabled does not even exist?

First, check "DeIete cookies and sitedata when Firefox is closed" from Privacy & Security in the settings.

After that, register the Google domain as an exception with "Manage Exceptions".

When I restart Firefox after logging in to Google once, the Google registration information disappears even though I registered the exception, and I have to log in again.

However, there are some sites where my login information will not disappear if I register as an exception.

How can I prevent my Google login information from disappearing even if I restart with the above settings?

Thank you.

So I am working on my own website & a couple days ago I got a requested headers too large error. After looking up what that meant, I cleared my cookies & cache but it didn't work. After looking it up more I renamed (added .old) the coolie file in my profile & I thought maybe it worked for a while but then all of a sudden it came back. Now I keep getting the requested headers too large error like every 5 minutes & have to keep clearing cookies & cache every time, which works for 5-15 minutes & then it happens again. Which is more than extremely frustrating when I'm trying to work on my website! And it's only happening on my site.

So how can I fix this for good? Is the cookie file getting corrupted again? If so, how to I prevent that?

"Sorry, the video player failed to load.(Error Code: 101104)" - this error message happens on some sites but not others. I believe there are more than one type of streaming transmission but do not know how to determine which is failing. For example, the streaming daily report on Democracynow.org fails while the reports on http://www.bbc.com/news/video_and_audio/international does not. This has been a problem for weeks now. I view both of these sites every day but must now use Microsoft Edge (ugh) to view democracynow.org.

When I try to play iplayer as of June 2022 it comes up with error 5000/5001. Other tv players are no longer playing either, Channel 4 for some time now. My laptop runs on Windows 8 and I have the latest version of firefox. In plug ins my codec is set on always activate as is Widevine CDM. I tried unchecking 'play DRM controlled content' in settings then checked it again and it has come up with Widevine CDM will be installed shortly, but nothing has happened.

many thanks, frances

Is there any clear way to prevent Firefox from automatically downloading and installing updates? I had checked the setting to prevent it being done without my choosing to do so: "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" but Firefox did not comply. What can a user do if Firefox will not comply with its own settings?

In government it's called autocracy, elitism and the only ones who like it are the ones in charge. Is that what's going on with Firefox?
