In any modern browser, if you go to https://donotcall.gov and file a complaint about a harassing robocall, if the browser's "form auto-fill" function is enabled it will automatically "remember" the phone number about which you filed the complaint and save the robo-caller's number for the next time you use a Web form that prompts for a phone number.

My suggestion is that Firefox should not do this.

You might argue that I should address my complaint to the website's owner, but you all know it's the government and I figured that the Firefox developer community might be able to come up with a solution. Think of it as an improvement by which Firefox can be made "better" than other browsers.

I recently downloaded Firefox in order to try to install it on a Windows VM. When I download the regular (online) installer and checked it with VirusTotal, one of the VirusTotal "engines" detected it as malicious. Therefore, I located the "offline" installer file on your website and ran it inside the VM.

A few minutes after I performed the installation, I got a "setup.exe" alert box saying "The system detected an overrun of a stack-based buffer in this application. This overrun could potentially allow a malicious user to gain control of this application."

Note: I cannot be sure this error actually pertains to Firefox (as it's a remote desktop connection to a shared VM so maybe somebody else was trying to install something). But the error did pop up shortly after I ran the Firefox installer. Also, this only happened once.

VM information: 4 CPUs; 16GB memory (1.28 GB active); hard disk 150 GB. Compatibility: ESXi 6.5 an later (VM version 13)

OS information: Windows 2019 Datacenter; Processor: Intel Xeon CPU ES-2697 v3 @ 2.60GHz 2.59GHz (4 processors) Installed RAM: 16.0 GB; 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor.

I have Firefox installed on an XUbuntu 20.04.2 LTS machine. preferences to "restore previous session" on startup. Intermittently, when I launch the browser, one of my windows has a very strange appearance (please note the general look of the window in the attached screenshot and ignore the "page cannot be displayed" message, as the screenshot was taken when I was not connected to the Internet.)

I have already tried reseting Firefox and that does not make the problem go away permanently; it always comes back eventually. (Note: I cleared cache before, and cookies after, taking the screenshot but before opening this support request. So the "troubleshooting information" attached reflects how it is after cookies are cleared.)

I notice that Firefox will download and install updates in the background, and then wait silently for me to restart firefox to get the updates applied.

Can I either: 1) Make it so Firefox automatically forcefully restarts once the patch is applied 2) Make it so Firefox pops up something that offers the user to restart to apply the update.

I would prefer to apply this through policy, or a registry edit if possible.

Thank you

Hi,

I have a problem with random "color blocks" appearing on the screen when using the Windows browser. They never happen with any other program on the computer so it is only an issue with the browser. These color blocks usually disappear when I roll the mouse arrow over the discolored block or reload the page. I have attached an image with an example, you can see the discolored black block when it is supposed to be all grey. I have tried both refreshing and reinstalling the software. The software has worked on this computer before. Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards, Magnus

Hello,

I am running into something very frustrating and am incredibly annoyed by it. Yesterday, I was browsing and had bookmarked some sites prior to me doing a Firefox update. After the update I had restarted my computer. Fast forward to today and I come to find out that NOTHING from the SEVEN (yes SEVEN!) hours leading up to the update had saved at all in Firefox. No history and no bookmarks from that time period. Oddly enough, my last bookmark shows eight whole days ago so not sure as to the extent of the damage. I have attached some pics showing the huge gap of missing data. It absolutely perplexes me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi!

Been test driving Proton and quite liking it, but on both FF 89 and 90 im running into issue where opening bookmarks or history via library menu freezes browser ui. Restoring and maximizing window restores the functionality again until next time i try to access said menus. After restoring and maximizing it seems like all the actions i've tried happen at once. See video https://imgur.com/a/8f2tl0l. I have roughly 100 bookmarks, so that shouldn't be an issue.

This happens also on completely fresh install without any backups and new profile. As soon as I import my bookmarks or even bookmark couple new, random sites without restoring old bookmarks, this problem begins manifesting itself.

I've tried troubleshooting mode and that helps, but im still sure what causes the issue as just disabling hardware acceleration does not help and I have no other themes or extensions active atm. Just in case I've also tried updating graphics drivers to no avail.

Stable FF does not display such issue.
