Hi,

I would like to create a pop-up blocker exception for a local temporary file like: file:///C:/Users/username/AppData/Local/Temp/DisplayURLs3227552811823012098.html

My firewall management tool generates a local report file, automatically opened by Firefox, but I can't add an exception like: "file:///C:" or "file:///C:/Users/username/AppData/Local/Temp/*"; it just does not work.

Thanks, Tom

After seeing so many problems with ver 89 reported here, and with my own font display problems, I still forgot to remind my wife not to update firefox on her pc.

So, she updated, started using, then firefox crashed. After killing task, firefox loaded up on a white blank window. Troubleshoot mode or whatever also gives a blank, even after restarting windows.

Uninstalled 89, downloaded ver 88 and installed. Had to say goodbye to her bookmarks, saved login etc. To my horror, when I went into options to disable auto update, it was already downloading 89! Even after changing it and exiting firefox, it still updated to 89!

Uninstalled 89 and reinstalled 88 again. Disconnected internet before running firefox so that I could change the update setting first. What a hassle. Can someone with powers here tell firefox devs to not beat the purpose of reverting to previous versions...

Been a loyal Firefox user since the time of Netscape... Really sad to see another very problematic version... Hope the mvp volunteers and top contributors here can compile our issues and submit to the devs...

Work-around: WebSDR sites won't save memories stored on my computer

Solved, but have a question still: I can set "pushbuttons" on my WebSDR sites to be able to recall a frequency on the radio dial, but after I close Firefox and restart FF, these settings are gone.

A webSDR site is one of many listed at www.websdr.org. Each site hosts a software-defined radio receiver that can be tuned by the user, independent of other users tuning the radio. AM broadcast, shortwave broadcast, ham radio and longwave broadcasts can be tuned in and listened-to off the air and streamed to your computer from all over the world.

I run the latest version of Firefox (89.0) (64-bit) on Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon.

In Settings, I search for cookies, and find Cookies and Site Data, and check the box for "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed." Then for every site I want cookies to persist from session to session, I "Manage Exceptions," and place the web address in that list, then allow every one of them.

In History, the next heading down, "Firefox will: Use custom settings for history." Here I used to save for the session, first- and third-party cookies. This has been removed from history. However, I still "clear history when Firefox closes." In the related Settings, I have only Cache and offlline website data marked for removal.

The webSDR sites all have a place to put a name or radio callsign. This is saved with a cookie.

So I don't have to type that in every time, I click on the lock on the address bar. Brings down a menu. On "Connection (not) secure, there is an arrow on the right. Click there to bring up connection security information and then click the bottom line, "More information." I land on another drop-down's Security tab. I use the tab to the left, called Permissions, and find "Set cookies." Remove the checkmark to use default (session cookies) and select the Allow button.

Just two lines below that has a "Store data in persistent storage," with "Use default" checked. I need to check this out!

Allowing cookies has saved me from having to re-enter my name on the webSDR site, but the page tells me that if I store a memory preset, that is saved on my computer with a cookie. So I don't get it that my name is saved, my presets are not saved and when I query the site's cookies, there ARE none!

Here is my work-around: In Delete history when Firefox closes, and its related settings, I now only clear cache, and unchecked to clear offline site data. I tested two sites and I am keeping my preset pushbuttons.

Now: I have just reinstated clearing offline site data when FF closes and have set one of the sites' permissions to allow persistent storage.

I will submit this report and close and reopen Firefox, check the site for retention of the memory preset and report back here.

None of my pages load and I get this error message:

PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

This continues to happen and I really need it fixed please!

I end up having to use a different browser when I prefer firefox.

I have emptied my cache, refreshed firefox to default, checked my security settings, not sure I have ads or ad blocking if I do I am not finding it. I did disable some protections to try and get things to work to no avail; which I don't prefer.

I believe this issue is on your end because this happened a few days ago, then things worked, and now they are not again.

I have read many of your articles and don't have any more time to waste to try to fix this. It has been exhausting and now I need you to fix this please.

I won't be able to keep using firefox if this keeps happening. It would be much appreciated if you would fix this.

Thank you!

Hi! I do Duolingo on a daily basis. Many/most of the tasks comes with audio, and then... the tab changes size - to show a "Playing". A short time after the sound has stopped, it will change back. I react every time, and it is very disturbing. I really don't need to have such information in the tab/window, because I usually/always hear when Firefox is presenting sounds. I want to find somewhere to turn that "notification" off. Is that possible?

I think that such a project would have multiple purposes: First off, you would take fewer things from Gecko, making for a more compact code base (I mean, does everyone want Video-in-Video and Pocket? Couldn't you integrate the most popular add-ons and remove add-on support? I like 'em, but don't they add bloat?). That could make the entry into development easier. Second off, it'd show people that Blink isn't the only engine you can base a browser off of. And if the code base is truly the same (includes Quantum), and more of a subset, it's probably easier to maintain and get security updates to than, for instance, Pale Moon. As fork developers are only able to backport security patches when Mozilla releases them, that problem would be greatly reduced if the project was made within Mozilla. Third off, having a lightweight browser might enable more people to use Mozilla products, as they could run the browser on weaker hardware. If the developers are able to focus on making that browser lightweight, it wouldn't be crucial for Firefox Standard to run on everything, and you'd still be able to reach more people.

vimeo is blocked since i got the latest firefox update. it says

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to vimeo.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

vimeo.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

how can this be fixed

Fedora 33 shipped with firefox-81. Just recently the first firefox update to fedora 33 landed. That update is firefox-89.

It is dead, no, excuse me, it's DEAD and DEAD slow. Youtube and streaming video sites stutter so badly that I'm lucky to get 2-3 frames per minute even if the audio holds up. firefox-89 is also slow on other fronts, no, excuse me, it's DEAD slow on all fronts.

I have a large number of windows and tabs and cutting that number by 25 to 30% has no noticable effect.

After searching for solutions, the top suggestion was to disable "proton", but no that had only a tiny effect.

What are the mozilla people thinking? My guess is that they are not thinking.

Another worthy question is, how did this awful piece of software get distributed by the fedora project.

Look, I've been using mostly firefox since it's beginning, but come on, this is ridiculous.

I downgraded to firefox-81 but now some of my streaming services have stopped working because of an unsupported browser. Additionally, gmail does not work after the downgrade.

I know I'm not a loner in this and I know that firefox-89 is not the most recent version to disappoint in a major way. I predict that firefox will be history within a year unless Mozilla pulls it's act together.

FF89 looks great BUT something's missing. I click the 3 bars to bring up the menu. There used to be a choice "Open file..." that would open a pull-down menu of the folder where I keep a special set of html files, something I used every day, but it's gone now. I can still open the Windows file explorer, and navigate to that folder, but that's a few extra steps. I found a place to customize the toolbar, and "open file..." was there in the overflow menu, and I tried to move it back but it didn't come. It's not under More Tools either.

After auto update to FF 89.0, access to long-time Fidelity account is intermittently blocked as a security warning, or causes DSL line to drop at submission of account security code, or displays account entry page as plain text, not std HTML formatting, or most often results in a technical error page saying try again later. MS EDGE works fine, no issues. This is the only webpage this occurs on. Fidelity has no FF reported issues on their end nor does my IP supplier. Using desktop PC, running Win10/64-bit, DSL line @ ~ 2.3 Mbps. Using the "Light Theme" which was auto set with 89.0. This plus the new bastardized menus will push me to drop FF since I can't afford endless hours to fix basic functionality with ea update.

Hello.

Since updating to Firefox 89, I have been experiencing problems playing videos shared on Google Drive. (The problem occurred in the Devloper Edition of version 89, and version 89 was released to regular Firefox without a solution. When I start playing a video in Google Drive, it plays fine for the first few minutes, but then suddenly the video stops and the video screen goes black, and there is no response when I press the play button. The only solution to this is to reload the web page, but this is very inconvenient as the video stops in the middle and when you reload again it starts playing from the beginning.

Sorry for my bad english. Thanks.
