I have firefox set up so that it does not suggest anything except for my bookmarks.

So when I type in the address bar the only suggestions that come up are my bookmarks, no other suggestions.

For example when I need to translate something quick and want to go to the bookmarked page for google translate as soon as I type "trans..." it will suggest the link, Which is what I want and expect and is efficient.

But as has happened before, now I get a random suggestion coming up first so I have type more just to get to the same result otherwise I end up following a link to a suggested site which is at best aggravating.

I checked my seeting and there is one box ticked in the search suggestion settings that I cannot disable. I have tried and it always comes back.

How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Since upgrading to Monterey, Google search pages show almost no text in Firefox. Google searches in Safari and Google Chrome are completely fine. Only Firefox is showing the problem. The blank text includes dropdown menus too - all options inside them are blank. Currently on Firefox v107.0, but the same problem happens with older versions.

If I go into Troubleshoot mode, the Google searches are working fine. I have refreshed Firefox, Cleared the startup cache. But the problem persists. I uninstalled Firefox from the machine, restarted the computer. Did a fresh download and install, haven't signed in so there are no addons/extensions to cause problems.

This is happening on both an Intel Mac and an M1 Mac running Mac OS 12.6 Monterey.

I attach one screenshot showing the same page with and without troubleshoot mode on. The second screenshot shows another page of results including what looks like weirdly encoded characters.

I've followed all the suggestions in the support page but nothing has helped. I'd really appreciate any advice on further troubleshooting. Thanks in advance for any help.

I've been getting a PopUp recently (upper right corner below bookmarks toolbar) titled "Sign in with Google" saying "Use your Google Account to Sign in to...". I've followed the instructions on the internet to access my Google account and turn off this security setting (Google Account sign-in prompts) and it still appears. This does not happen on other chromium browsers I regularly use.

Why does Firefox keep displaying this PopUp, and more importantly, how can I suppress this annoyance?

Thanks,

Firefox v107.0 (64-bit) - up to date Windows 10 Pro (fully updated) Running NordVPN.

Hello all,

For some reason, I can no longer upload or download files, with the pop-up window failing to appear entirely. I can upload folders through, for example, Dropbox or Google Drive, but individual files don't work.

I've reset my browser, uninstalled and reinstalled it, opened it in troubleshooting mode, disabled enhanced tracking protection, but nothing seemed to work. I've tested another browser, and I was able to upload and download files just fine.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 using Firefox 107.0.1.

Hi,

No matter what I do, a google dialogue box encouraging me to use google for password management, pops up every time I go to a site, new or existant.

I've gone into my google account to disable such requests, and, indeed, otherwise use google for nothing....not even search............but they keep coming anyway.

am using ubuntu 20.04, and no other utility or code is giving me this trouble.

I want to stop this dialogue box and eliminate any code in firefox or ubuntu which supports it.....as I have no idea why this box showed up....one day it just started.

Many thanks!

Dear Sirs,

Since mid-November 2022 I encounter a login failure issue with my Wordpress website. I get a "500 Internal Server Error" when I try to login. This happens only on the Firefox browser. All systems components are up-to-date.

I tried: - cleaning cookies and cache, - logging in private windows, - logging in the Firefox Troubleshoot mode.

I spoke with my web hosting service. They had the same issue with my website. They said that recently this issue was brought up not only by me. No solution so far.

Are you aware of such an issue? What more could I do do eliminate the issue?

I would prefer to continue editing my website using the Firefox, as always.

Best regards, Mike

On one website *only* and only with *some* hyperlinks there I have trouble opening the hyperlinks. I can work around the issue, but I am curious what causes it -- and if there is a way to avoid having to work around. Here are the symptoms:

1. (right)Click on the hyperlink and 'open in new tab' --> does not open 2. Same as 1) but 'open in new window' --> does not open 3. Same as above but 'open in new private window' --> opens fine!

Alternatively 1. (plain click) on the link --> does not open 2. above + use back arrow (<-) to go back to page with the hyperlink and then use the forward arrow (->) to return to the hyperlinked page and it opens!

Additional info: FF 107.0.1 (64-bit) on Macbook pro M1 Ventura FF preferences set to open links in new tab, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't depending on the site FF advanced setting browser.search.openintab is set to TRUE (but it failed with FALSE also)

So I am stumped!

Remember search and form history. This setting always resets to false after the latest two FireFox updates and I need to enable it again.

After logging out and back in the setting is disabled again. I've removed all plugins and extensions I've added and the issue persists.

I've tried Places Database : Verify Integrity but the issue persists on very Restart or loggin. In the past I've even removed FireFox with a 3rd party uninstaller to remove all remnants of FF but, as a very long term user of FF (right from the early Win XP days), this issue pops up from time to time and it's really starting to become extremely annoying.

Apart from Refreshing FF or the total nuke and reinstall option, what else can be done to stop this issue?

Thanks.

While doing some virus discovery tests with Windows Defender and other AV products I realized that with Firefox files are not scanned when download finishes. With Chrome and Edge the Windows Defender immediately checks and blocks malicious files. Not so with Firefox. Then the file is only checked and blocked when opened.

After some research I found that in the past there was an Option `browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone` but this seems no longer available. Under Security software in about:support Windows Defender seems to be correctly set.

Is there a way to have files immediately checked by the AV after download in Firefox completes?

Library window cannot be sized smaller than HUGE, Firefox 107.0 64 bit Windows 10 Pro

After updating to 107.0 -- I've been getting update notices every couple of days lately -- I am unable to size the Library window to a dimension smaller than IMMENSE.

I generally have a lot of open windows on my screen -- browser windows, file folders, Notepad files, and so forth. I keep the Library window's Downloads section open, sized to display ONE download. In the rare event that I am keeping more than one download visible (I generally "Clear Downloads" after moving a newly downloaded file from my Downloads dir to its destination dir), then they will scroll vertically.

Suddenly, I find that I am now unable to shoehorn the relatively small Library window (sized to hold ONE download) between my Downloads dir (above Library) and my "Next" dir (below the Library window), containing a list of bookmarks I plan on loading.

I am using my machine for research, and I have worked out this system and have been successfully using it for several years now.

By "now" I of course mean "then" -- argh...

I have looked through the browser.download section via about.config. The only possible suspect I could find was browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel -- but, changing it to False did nothing.

I really do not appreciate this "stealth misfeature" (it does NOT show up in the documented list of changes to this version), and if there is ANY way to revert to NORMAL behavior, I would really appreciate knowing about it.

A paternalistic "we know best" attitude, LOCKING ME OUT of the ability to resize a window -- other than to make it LARGER -- well, I want to keep a civil tone, so I won't say how I feel about that, other than to point out that in an earlier life I was a developer, and I am well aware than this sort of sizing restriction is something that must be INTENTIONALLY coded. It doesn't "just happen by itself."

Someone at Mozilla DECIDED to impose this [redacted] on the world.

I guess I will now see if I can find the FTP site to back down one version and hope there are no backward-compatibility issues. As to FUTURE updates (please note that I did not say upGRADE), I am at a loss to figure how to handle them.

This is SO [redacted] frustrating!

Here (attached image) is what I am talking about. This is now the SMALLEST size I am ALLOWED to size the window!

FireFox: 107.0 (64 bit) Mozilla FireFox for Linux Mint OS: Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon

Issue: On this FireFox latest version, the download window cannot be resized to smaller than (roughly) 1/4 of entire screen. (screen-shot attached.)

Attempted: Mouse left-click grab of all corners & sides to drag window smaller - failed!

Note: Download window can be resized *bigger*, showing this window has now been coded with a very large minimum size that is almost 1/4 of full screen

- this was not the case in previous versions.

Micro-annoyances add up, people switch to Chrome (sorry to use the "C" word!)

Gah your tab crashed happening on version 107 frequently. Very annoying and I have gone through FFX Refresh. NO Change. Windows 10 64bit. Malwares is enabled and I have Norton 360 running. There don't seem to be any solutions listed even though more than 42 posts having this problem, some since level 88! I usually have about 4 tabs open including Google calendar and Google contacts. Sometimes selecting a link from Thunderbird email just results in a blank page with the correct URL showing but page loading not completing. At other times clicking a link in one tab results in a new tab that then hangs the same way. At that stage, clicking on the other open tabs (Calendar etc) gives the Gah message. The only way to recover seems to be to stop and start FFX. Clicking on the buttons in the error message (Close Tab / Restore Tab) does nothing at all.

A solution would be welcomed.
