Firefox worked perfectly, but since a few days I can't download anything. I'm using Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu 22.04, version 110.0.1 (64 bits) canonical-002 - 1.0 With Chrome everything works perfectly so I assume it's a problem from Firefox.

When I open a PDF, a MP3 or any file, the "save" option doesn't display anything. Usually it opened a dialog where I could choose the folder where I wanted to download the file, but now I have nothing.

I have only 4 extensions: - adblocker ultimate - duckduckgo privacy essentials - vuejs dev tools - zotero connector

I always had them and I never encountered any problem.

I cannot unpin Firefox from the taskbar

How do I uninstall the Firefox icon from the taskbar? The standard article on the Firefox Support website is `How to pin and unpin Firefox from the taskbar on Windows 10 and Windows 11', but it seems to be out of date. It says to right-click on the icon and click on `Unpin from taskbar', but there is no such item in the right-click menu any more.

I know that it became difficult to unpin the Firefox icon about a year ago. I got a new PC recently and installed Firefox, but I could not remove the icon. Then realised that I should have done this during installation, by using 'Custom installation' and unticking the 'Icon on taskbar' option. I searched the web for clues and found none, so I uninstalled and reinstalled, which was a nuisance.

Some months later, I have just installed the new version 110.0.1, but I forgot to use 'Custom install', with the result that the icon is back on the taskbar. Again I have searched the web, and again no success. I tried reinstalling V110.0.1 on top, using 'custom install' this time --- I could switch off the 'Icon on taskbar', but the icon is still there.

I don't want to uninstall-reinstall this time because I have now configured Firefox as I want it, so that would waste a lot of time --- and I will probably forget again sometime in the future.

I am sure that Firefox has not done this deliberately, because they are always so much on the user's side.

QUESTION: How do I unpin the Firefox icon from the taskbar without uninstalling? I have an idea that there is a registry hack that will achieve this.

All typed text appears blue until you break it in some ways like pressing the spacebar or moving the keyboard cursor with the arrow keys. It happens at the firefox search bar as well, and search suggestions and autocomplete doesn't work whenever it happens.

Hello. I was reading Quora.com web site on my notebook in Firefox (110.0.1 64-bit) normally, then I got power outage. When electricity returned and I tried to open it again, browser didn't open it and I gave me message:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.quora.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

Error code: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

I've tried to get support from Quora.com how message said, but they told me "this error does not originate from our website". And gave me some suggestions - "The easiest way to fix this secure connection error is to reset the Firefox settings." I've performed "Refresh Firefox", but problem persists. I don't use VPN. Can anyone please help me with this problem?

Hi, I have noticed that when using the latest release of Mozilla Firefox on Windows 10 and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, when I go to ABCnews.go.com and click into a story, there is an autostarting video. But instead of either waiting until I click on it or autostarting normally, it flashes wildly. I have disabled all extensions and the problem persists. Has anyone else encountered this? And more importantly, does anyone have a fix for this issue?

Textbox caret stops blinking after a few seconds

In the past the caret in text entry fields used to blink/pulsate/flash forever in both Firefox and Thunderbird. (Text entry boxes, such as the browser URL-bar, the e-mail To/Subject/Content textboxes, online forms, etc.). Now in the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox 110.0.1 and Thunderbird 102.8.0 the caret stops blinking after just a few seconds. This is very confusing and frustrating for my grandmother and she already called me several times because Firefox and Thunderbird 'stopped working'. I explained to her that this is a new feature but she does not understand and keeps forgetting it after a few days. She is used to the cared blinking continuously, it has been blinking for the past decades whenever she wanted to type something in the computer and it only stopped blinking when the computer program froze or crashed.

I am sure that my grandma is not the only person having issues with the caret not flashing, I for one also would like to have a caret that blinks forever, so when I look away from the screen and look back I do not have to search the text to find where I left my caret.

Please make it so that the default caret appearance and behavior is the same as in all other programs (i.e. blinking forever), as it used to be in the past, just like what everyone is used to. I argue that the majority of users is used to and also expects a blinking caret when they are writing an e-mail or search online and you are confusing a whole lot of people with this minor change, people who do not know how to report bugs or seek help themselves. It's a sign of poor user-friendliness if grandmas need to call their grandchildren or children for help just to write e-mails which they used to be able to do on their own for many years in the past.

I hereby suggest adding an accessibility option for people who wish to disable the blinking cursor and to change the default behavior back to 'caret flashing forever'.

1) When I played a video on Youtube with Firefox via my computer speakers, they worked flawlessly. 2) Then I plugged in my headphones via the headphones jack, there is no sound. 3) I went to Windows settings and checked the volume mixer and tested the sound, the headphones worked. 4) I opened Edge and played a video on Youtube, the headphones work flawlessly. 5) I played a video through my media player, the headphones work flawlessly.

So my conclusion is that it is Firefox that is broken.

I closed Firefox and restarted it and tried steps 1 to 5 above, still got the same results. Firefox did not play any sound over the headphones while all the others worked flawlessly.

I restarted my computer and tried the steps again and still got the same results.

I also deleted Cookies and Site data from Firefox settings and still no luck.

Any suggestions?

Hi All.

If I use a Private Window and start typing a URL of a site I visited before in Private, right after I type the first 2 of 9 letters, it fills in the other 7 letters.

Is Firefox remembering that site or is my default search engine, DuckDuckGo?

When I do a Google search on a calculation, such as "1+1" or even "sin(pi/3)/e^(-1.125)", Google returns a calculator with the answer. This is REALLY helpful. I've confirmed this behavior on Chrome and Edge on Windows 11.

However, Firefox does not seem to display the returned calculator.

I've attached 3 screenshots, each showing the calculator (Chrome and Edge) and the lack of a calculator (Firefox).

Why is Firefox not displaying the search's calculator and result?

Hello. First of all, does anyone know where a list of supported query terms for smart bookmarks could be found?

I already know some, such as "sort=" and "maxResults=", but would like to see a full list.

Second, would it be possible to use smart bookmarks to show a list of visited websites whose URLs match a pattern such as "food.com/*doughnuts*"? That is, all websites from food.com that also have the term doughnuts in the URL?

Firefox refusing Primary Password

Today, after browsing about whether or not I should continue using Firefox as my password manager, I decided to mitigate the most important security flaw in browser based password managers, by setting up a Primary Password. I choose to use an easy to remember 8 word long passphrase as my Primary Password. I noted down the passphrase in my diary. Due to problem while loading YouTube, I decided to restart Firefox by going to about:profiles and selecting "restart normally". This issue where Firefox starts to struggle connecting to internet is a relatively common occurrence on my Firefox install, and restarting Firefox fixes the issue. When Firefox restarted, I was prompted to enter the primary password. I confidently entered my passphrase, but it was rejected. I tried to typing to it more carefully several times. I got my diary and checked it to make sure I was entering the passphrase correctly. Following troubleshooting steps on a similar thread, I restarted firefox, no luck. I than rebooted my computer, issue persisted. I decided to restart Firefox with extensions disabled, and also in troubleshooting mode. Firefox still rejects my passphrase. I have my Firefox account synchronized with two Android phones. Will reinstalling Firefox and syncing with my Firefox account solve the problem? In a similar troubleshooting thread, renaming key4.db and logins.json is suggested. However, it has not been explained very clearly. My logins.json file was modified an hour before disaster, even though I had made no changes to any of my logins or the master password. Is my logins.json corrupted causing the issue? I will like to point out a design flaw in Firefox which might have caused the issue. I usually want to see what I am typing when I am entering an encryption password. This is to make sure that I don't mistype something. However, in Firefox Primary Password configuration window, there is not option to see what you are typing. Firefox relies on low probability of typing the wrong password twice. I don't think devs should be so worried about shoulder attacks to not even allow users option to view what they typing. My case might be that low probability situation where I made the same mistake while typing the passphrase twice.

When I do the keybind (Control + P) or press the print icon in google apps (google docs, drawings, etc) it automatically downloads a pdf instead of opening the print menu. Chosen solution

Printing on any other site pops up with the printing options. Only on google apps does this happen, including gmail.

This problem is non-existent on Google Chrome and Edge. It does persist on Brave although. Haven't tested any other browsers.

Hello ,

This is my first time to ask for help or have a question. I have a program that finds Super-Cookies that are not

deleted by normal means. HSTS is another word for them. This one is owner@realserv.com which can redirect your browser and is mainly to spread adds: It can also read info on your computer;however I am having no problems from it that I know of and have discussed it with others that say it is not malicious and is in fact a Microsoft file. In any case I have found a site to offers a way to remove it.

https://sensorstechforum.com/realsrv-virus/#what-is-realsrv-

I only use Firefox but in following the directions given I was unable to remove it. The page was probably written before all the changes to Firefox.

Can you advise on this subject? Firefox is latest version.

Since installing Firefox 110.0.1 on Windows 10 machine, my search bar is only about 1" wide. When I enter Troubleshoot Mode, the search bar is normal. So, I disabled every extension and am now using the built in Firefox Theme. I even went so far as to remove my chrome folder from the profile but the problem still persists. What can I do to correct this?
