A few days ago I found that Captcha was not working in Firefox on a Mac. I click on the relevant squares but get a new screen to work on. It just goes on and on and no matter how many screens I complete it won't let me through. It works fine on other browsers.

I hate Captcha and can't understand why webmasters can't use a better system to check that a viewer is a real person.

Is anyone else having this problem?

I've been having this issue ever since the latest release of firefox.

Essentially it will be fine for a while and then all of a sudden firefox is unable to retrieve any headers from the fetch response. If I refresh firefox this fixes the issue, but only for a small amount of time. The same bug doesn't happen on chrome and I haven't had it happen to me yet on firefox developer edition. It happens if I use this browser on private browsing with no plugins as well.

Note that we do use a fetch wrapper but it essentially returns the entire response object in the screenshots below.

Also note that it doesn't seem to happen anywhere but localhost. Is there anything I can do here?

Hey y'all,

First, thanks for your attention. This has been driving me nuts over the last few weeks and if I can fix it I'd be very happy.

I switched to Firefox a few months ago and immediately set up the password manager and a bunch of bookmarks. Unfortunately, the next time I shut down my computer and restarted, Firefox said this browser was a new installation and had totally reset, with nothing saved.

This happened again a second time, so I set up a Firefox Account so I could have the settings saved to a profile rather than an installation.

Every time I restart the same thing happens: Firefox has a 'new installation' and none of my settings. The first time I logged in to my Firefox account to sync it, it worked. But I've just installed Catalina, previously using Mojave, and on that restart it happened again, but the Firefox account sync isn't doing anything. Now, every time I open up the browser, even if I haven't restarted the computer, it brings me to the same 'new installation' screen. When I log in to my Firefox account as prompted, none of my previous information syncs. Nothing happens at all after I get the "This Firefox is connected" screen.

I know the sync is at least somewhat connected because I can sync tabs from my phone to my computer.

Any ideas? I can re-do all of my passwords and bookmarks, but I don't want to bother if it isn't getting saved anywhere, or if I can't stop this factory reset whenever my computer shuts off.

I'm on a Macbook running Catalina 10.15 if that matters. Thanks!

I am unable to get the 'recommended by Pocket' panel to appear in new tabs with my normal user Firefox profile (Firefox account sign-in) on Mac Catalina. When I go to about:preferences#home the option simply is not present.

I created a new user login on my mac to access banking and other financials. This uses a separate Firefox profile (including new Firefox account sign-in and email), and the 'recomended by Pocket' panel is present.

The panel is present on new tabs opened for my normal Firefox account sign-in on my iOS (iPhone) Firefox install.

The about:config settings searching for 'pocket' appear to be the defaults, and match the settings in the financials account.

I have tried in 'safe mode' (add-ons disabled) and have done a Firefox 'refresh', however my add-ons (and presumably everything else) were restored when I signed back into my normal Firefox user account.

Hovering over the Pocket icon in the address bar displays 'save to Pocket', implying to me that it has signed me into Pocket. I've signed in at getpocket.com. New Firefox profiles without signing in do not show 'recommended by Pocket' in either new tabs or the about:preferences#home configuration page, but I expect the functionality requires being signed in to a Firefox account.

Help or suggestions much appreciated.

Suddenly tabs won't close & hitting "Command" & a link opens a new window instead of a new tab. Anyone know how to make tabs close & also how to revert to allowing "command" + clicking a link to open in a new tab & not a new window? I've tried shift + re-opening Firefox & I tried 'safe mode' & it's still happening.

Hello,

I have been having weird problems with my Firefox since I tried getting back to using it. I have reset everything before using it again. I changed the language back to English but the hamburger icon list is in Japanese. A minor issue but I can manage.

But this one is really annoying. I click on a link and it closes it down for me in 1 second. Here's a short clip of what I'm referring to.

Hi:

I located the following instructions for sorting bookmarks: "Click Bookmarks and then click the Show All Bookmarks bar at the bottom. Right-clickHold down the Ctrl key while you click on the folder you want to sort, then select Sort By Name. The bookmarks in that folder will be sorted alphabetically.".

I followed them, got to sort but nothing happened regardless how many times I tried. Is this supposed to work on an Apple?

Thanks.

I am just wondering why FireFox occasionally becomes slow to load web pages. On these occasions, restarting Firefox fixes the problem immediately.

Example, I was just loading the same page repeatedly because of some work I am doing. After about 15 minutes of slow response times, I restarted FireFox and immediately, the page loaded very quickly as usual.

You can see the page where this was occurring at this url: https://legacy-systems.biz/demo/demo.html

Any information etc. would be appreciated immensely.

My wife and I are both suddenly blocked from opening a fav website: https://www.freedomconsciousness.com/

We now get a 403 Forbidden webpage (generated by Wordfence) instead.

Ditto when using the utube webpage, then in the About tab, trying to reach the website that way.

Trying the Mozilla technique of clicking on the lock icon ... I get both a secure connection message and a not-secure-connected message. Nothing I try after that affects anything. What to do???
