I've started getting this error message on certain websites (always the same ones):

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.manek.org.uk.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

The same websites still work fine on Firefox mobile, so it's nothing inherent in the sites themselves.

I have only noticed this in the last few days. I had just updated Firefox to version 109 – but it's not specific to one version of Firefox either, as I tried on one of my Macs which hadn't updated yet and is still on version 107, and the issue was replicated exactly the same.

I have tried clearing the cache, restarting Firefox, etc.

Can anyone help me resolve this? Some of these are websites I use quite a lot for my work, and it's frustrating to have to do anything just on my phone.

The latest Firefox update appears to break video playback on Linux. I am having issues playing video on Twitter, Facebook, and Locals. YouTube video still plays. I have not enabled any new ad blocking and have also not changed any settings. Looking at the Troubleshooting Information in Firefox reveals nothing that is suspect.

Hello,

I have more than 30 extensions, but I cannot add an extension shortcut into my toolbar and no extension appears in the “Customize Firefox” view. I tried “Restore defaults” without any effects...

There is a way to fix this issue or run Firefox in verbose mode to more information why my extensions don't appear here? (Other than restart from a new fresh profile if it's possible…). I confirm that all the extensions are functional and activated. Thanks,

Emeric

I do my Firefox updates manually. I am currently using version 108.0.2. When I click on "about", it says I should "Update to Partner Removal". It usually tells me to update to the next version that is available. What is Partner Removal? Is it a legitimate update? I can't find anything on the website regarding this. Why does it not tell me to update to version 109?

Thank you for your help.

I recently had hard drive problems and during the ensuing melee, I discovered that Firefox has stored well over 100k files with the general name {xxx...}.final. Being the curious sort--and given that these boogers are taking up almost 1Gb--I looked at a few and they appear to be related to websites that I visited. I can see keeping some recent things around, but some of this goes back, literally, to the day I bought my PC. Um...that's a lot of files and a lot of space for places I visited once and will never go to again. Some of the websites no longer exist, so obviously those files are wasted space.

I am unable to find much about this on the web, either via Google or the help here. A few people have brought it up, but no one seems to know what to do. The help here goes nuts with the search term "final" and brings up a plethora of hits containing "finally" and so forth, but nothing useful. "}.final" isn't much help, either.

The path is C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile name>\storage\default

Questions: 1) Can some or all of this be deleted? 2) Is there a way to tell Firefox not to be so anal about keeping so many useless things?

Given the sheer quantity of these things, it would make future backup/restores easier if I could trim some of the fat, but I don't want to mess things up, either.

Thanks...

Hello. I have a problem with turning off google safesearch. I'm 28 years old so it's not a problem with google acc. I have same firefox on pc and on laptop. On pc and on smarthphone it's easily turning off and if i'm using edge or chrome on laptop it's also turned off, but if i'm using firefox exactly on google it's always turned on no matter what i'm do. Just in case, if i'm using for example bing search in firefox it's also turned off, likely it's always turned when i'm using google with combination in firefox. Methods that I already tried: 1) Turned off in computer settings (not worked) 2) Reinstalled browser (not worked) 3) Checked in my wifi settings (not worked) 4) Updated everything (not worked) Waiting for your help.

On this site: https://www.orange.pl/twojekonto/zaloguj I can't force firefox to remember username (no problem with remembering password on next step). In older Firefox without WebEx there was addon which allowed to manipulate forms to prepare proper autocompletion data. This addon is not supported with WebEx anymore due to lack of proper functions. Instead Firefox Dev Team claims that mechanism built in current Firefox is enough for such tasks and mentioned addons are not needed. Seems it is wrong thinking.

I tried different approaches to save username for mentioned site but without success.

Hello,

There is a very long list of these that are associated with my account. I've imported my Firefox settings from computer to computer for at least twenty years. I may have made mistakes that caused me to pick up malware, and want to fix this, and some of these certificates have expired.

How do I know what to keep and what to either delete or edit trust regarding?

Is there any way to quickly and easily have all of them assessed at once?

Thanks very much!

So I wanted to read PDFs trough firefox with a dark theme, looked up how to do so online, and people say to change the "about:config" option "pdfjs.viewerCssTheme" to "2" instead of "0", I did that, tried opening a PDF, nothing happend, it was still black text on white backgrounds. Tried closing firefox, reopened the pdf, nothing happened, still white backgrounds. Tried to check if it might have to do with that specific pdf file's config, created my own PDF file from a word document, tried to open it, still white backgrounds. Tried disabling extensions, (which I use four of, UBlock Origin, SponsporBlock, Return Youtube Dislike and Translate this page), didn't work. Tried enabling the option on my laptop, didn't work. Tried a bunch of other stuff and it still won't work. My Firefox version is 109 and I'm using Windows 10 I also don't want to use the console/file edit thing with grayscale(1) invertcolor(1) or whatever it was since it also reverses the colors of images instead of just the backgrounda nd text color.
