Windows 10, Firefox 120.0 (64 bit), Microsoft Surface Pro.

We moved (1000 miles) and I when I use Google Maps in Firefox (not in Chrome or Edge), it still shows my location being at our old address. Very frustrating. Clearly is a Firefox issue because as stated, my correct location is shown using other browsers on the same computer.

My preferred browser is Firefox, but this is very frustrating. I searched for solutions but came up with nothing that related to the issue being ONLY in Firefox, not other browsers. I.e., it is not a system issue, it is clearly an application (Firefox) issue, so I'm looking for a fix at that level.

Hi,

I have a problem.

I am using Firefox browser (version: 126.0 64 bit) on Windows 11 Pro. Audio is automatically muted on all Kick broadcasts. (https://kick.com) When I refresh the page or click another streamer, I have to unmute the broadcast.

(I do not have this problem in the Google Chrome browser)

How can i fix it?

I am migrating to a new laptop. The new laptop keeps asking me for a primary password. I have never set one up. This issue doesn't happen on the old machine, only the new one. It also won't let me disable the pop-up that asks for the primary password. Please advise.

Very recently Firefox just stopped displaying the date/time stamp on Facebook on a PC. Nothing has changed on my end. One day it worked, next day it didn't. I am using the latest version of Firefox (115.111.0.esr). I manage several pages and I need to see when people have posted. This is so annoying that I will likely switch everything to a new browser if this can't get fixed. Upon looking this up, I see this is a known issue. Please help. You can see in the attached posts how all posts appear with no date.

Unattended software (kiosk) here.

Sometimes (so rarely that I cannot reproduce in dev) the client sees this error screen: "Firefox closed unexpectedly while starting..." (see image in attachment)

Sometimes when rebooting the error goes away and Firefox starts normally.

Sometimes even when rebooting the system - this vertical error screen appears, and one solution is to reinstall Firefox, but I'd like not to (if not necessary) or at least programmatically detect the issue and perform the needed actions.

QUESTIONS: How to programmatically detect (bash i.e.) that this error window is present and get rid of it properly? Or, how to (for debugging) force that screen to appear (to force that broken state)?

PS: I'm running Firefox using:

nohup firefox -P ff_custom_profile -new-instance -private-window -kiosk "$url" > /dev/null 2>&1 &

Thank you for any assistance or insight

I have just upgraded the OS on Mac Mini with the M1 chip to Sonoma (14.5) I am running Firefox 126.0.

Now it seems that I have more than one problem since the upgrade. The browsing history in my sidebar is not current. It is running about a day behind.

I reported earlier that the type on my LinkedIn is only out 7 pt when my settings have the minimum size at 14 pt.

Somebody please help. I'm afraid to do a refresh because I don't know what it will do to my banking settings.

I often run into issues with PDFs in Firefox Linux. They either appear totally blank (typically after suspend/restore), or they appear with the desktop background showing through (as in the attached screenshot).

Hard refreshing the page doesn't change anything, opening a new tab and opening the PDF again doesn't change anything, opening a new window and loading the PDF doesn't change anything.

The screenshot is with this PDF: https://www.sgsw.ch/home/strom/_jcr_content/Par/sgsw_accordion_list_1838160259/AccordionListPar/sgsw_accordion_12353/AccordionPar/sgsw_downloadlist/DownloadListPar/sgsw_download_1049323524.ocFile/2023-08-31%20Mitteilung%20Elcom%20Erh%C3%B6hung%20Elektrizit%C3%A4tspreise%20f%C3%BCr%20das%20Jahr%202024.pdf

It renders correctly in Chromium.

Just today, I can no longer access the Amazon website. The pages load halfway and then it just churns/spins and never completes loading the page. So far I've discovered no other websites that have the same problem.

I am able to access the Amazon website on three other browsers - Edge, Brave and DuckDuckGo - with no problems and normal loading speed. I don't use Chrome, so I can't speak to that.

I've tried clearing the cache and that did not help. I had a Firefox update installed a couple of days ago. Don't know how long it had been sitting there, as Firefox is almost always open and doesn't have the opportunity to update until I close everything and restart my computer, which I did a couple of days ago.

Windows 10 on a Dell pc/laptop. Firefox Version 126.0 (64-bit).

Any ideas on how to fix?

Browser Geolocation Shows Old Location

When using some websites that ask for browser permission to use your location, the location is wrong.

I recently moved more than 2000 miles, and when I use Google Maps in Firefox on my Windows laptop, its "current location" (as in, the blue dot that appears once I give Google Maps permission to use my location) is always at my old address rather than my new one.

After some digging, I discovered https://mylocation.org/, which was very helpful in that it informed me of two different types of location lookup. One of them, based on my IP address, works like a charm and shows me at my new address. The other, called "Browser Geolocation", shows my old address. And I've confirmed that this information varies from browser to browser: Firefox is wrong, Chrome is correct, Edge is correct, Brave is wrong.

This must mean that the browser stores some kind of information somehow about my location, right? How do I update this so that it matches the public IP address location?
