Hello,

I updated firefox and it's now hard to tell when one tab ends and another begins when you have multiple inactive tabs next to each other, which is a major annoyance.

The way to solve this would be to have the inactive tabs have a border around them like the active tab, have them have a different background color from the toolbar, or otherwise have some kind of separator between them. I saw another answer that gave a temporary solution, but the same answer said the solution was going to stop working in a future update. Is there a permanent solution?

After the last update to version 90.0, I can't continue to use firefox browser. The problem is about opening google sites (youtube, gmail). Other websites seems to work normal, but I can't open youtube and gmail now (google.com itself works heavily). When I type url and click enter, it takes so much time to load, often not loading the site or partially load. Other browsers installed on the same system works normally with the "problematic" websites. I tried hard reload (ctrl+f5), cleaning all browser data, and uninstalling and reinstalling. None of the mentioned actions helped. Please help me to identify and solve the issue.

Is it possible to convince the developers to return as it was?

I am using Firefox on Linux (Ubuntu 20.10) to work from home over OpenVPN. Recently the VPN configuration was changed to use split tunneling to improve our internet connection. Since then I have had several DNS resolving issues in Firefox.

We use an on premise DNS server as an alternative to `localhost` domain names so we can access other developers' environments and so a few services can do the same. Our URL structure is like projectname.[optional personal identifier.]localhost.[type].nl. Without the [optional personal identifier], or when nothing is configured for it, the ip address is 127.0.0.1.

In Linux' OpenVPN configuration I have "Use this connection only for resource on its network" enabled for IPv4 and IPv6 is disabled (to benefit from split tunneling). With that enabled Firefox usually fails to resolve such development hostnames.

- As far as I know I do not have DoH enabled (and the about:networking log further down tells so too). - I do have `dnsmasq` enabled (with configuration for the above domain formats to route to 127.0.0.1 also) in an attempt to fix some issues before the split tunneling was configured correctly. And in an attempt to try and get Firefox to handle these DNS resolving issues. - `dig` on the command line for the same domain works just fine. - Adding hostnames to /etc/hosts works. But that's becoming a chore, working on dozens of projects over months.

Why is Firefox failing to resolve such domain names? Should I just create a Bugzilla issue?

I created a log with about:networking set to `timestamp,nsHostResolver:5`:

Using Apache2 to serve web pages.

The following appears in the access.log:-

The form method is POST and the action is to call a PHP script which expects a POST array. The "302 314" appears to be correct, but, a GET is returned immediately.

According to w3.org:-

Note: RFC 1945 and RFC 2068 specify that the client is not allowed

     to change the method on the redirected request.  However, most
     existing user agent implementations treat 302 as if it were a 303
     response, performing a GET on the Location field-value regardless
     of the original request method. The status codes 303 and 307 have
     been added for servers that wish to make unambiguously clear which
     kind of reaction is expected of the client.

This has just started to occur after a recent upgrade to Firefox. It might be caused by the browser but there might be some other explanation or configuration setting that needs tweaking. Could somebody please help.

Thanks.

I am using Firefox since several years with a PrimaryPassword for saved passwords. With Windows 10 it is used since a year or so. I regularily kept Firefox open for several days, but had no issue with it. But since some weeks firefox is asking for the Primary Password every day. This is quite anoying. After entering the password again, it continues to work, but will ask for the password on the next day again. Another post talks about a possible issue with some specific virus scanners, but I am just using Microsoft Defender Antivirus, which ships with Windows 10. I did not add any Add-on recently, so I suppose an issue with one of the latest Firefox updates (current version is 90.0.2 64-bit on Windows 10). Thanks for any tips.

Hi. Firefox is my main browser, installed and signed in on a handful of devices. The share menu has a nice option to "Send To Device" to send a specific tab to another device. I do that, get a confirmation toast that the Tab has been sent... but where can I find it on the target device ? It doesn't open right away (which is what I'd prefer), and I can't find it anywhere else ?

I tried from Android to Android, from Windows to Android, from Android to Windows... Sending a tab is nice, actually finding it on the target device would be nicer ^^

When I launch Firefox, if I press anything or wait for a bit, the program stops responding and I have to force close it. Firefox was working just fine until recently. I have not updated Windows or made changes to Firefox prior to these issues occurring either.

I have tried following this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-keeps-crashing-startup#w_try-a-clean-install_2

I am not able to start in Troubleshoot mode as I cannot interact with Firefox in any way.

I also have trouble with doing a clean install. When I run the uninstaller, it eventually gets stuck and I have to force close the uninstaller. After closing the uninstaller, I deleted the Mozilla folder under C:\Program Files and the Firefox folder under the %appdata% directory.

I then tried both the stub installer for Firefox and the full installer located here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

Both installers get stuck. I have attached an image of where the full installer gets stuck. After force closing the installers, I am still able to open Firefox, but it has the same issue of not responding.

I have also tried creating a new profile with the profile manager, but the issue persists.

If anyone has any ideas or knows of a solution, please let me know.

Thanks.

Neither of the cited solutions in the support articles, regarding the recent sudden demolition of bookmarks, work, and the articles do not offer a how-to-escalate option.

When surfing from Menu > Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > Library arrows, it does "successfully" recognize a July 15 backup copy existing, but when clicking on it, it only brings up an error message saying "unable to process."

When going instead to Firefox Help > More Troubleshooting > Profile > Show in Finder, it again finds the same July 15 backup, but only produces an error message saying that no document can be opened. It offers generic referral to the entirety of the Apple Store and entirety of all existing applications on the hard drive, that already didn't step up to open it, but no clue as to what opening Firefox's own proprietary reference actually requires, or who to ask if the user fails.

This is a catastrophic result for bazillions of users, especially any involved in research or use of deep websites in which the shortcut-route or source-reminder bookmarks were harvested over time in a way that isn't easily reconstructed from "accounts" or emails or notes. Why in the world would anyone think it wise to make the default browser setting automatically "upgrading" by wiping out all accumulated user data without any warnings to the user to first do a manual backup of personal data, such as by exporting all existing FF bookmarks into another browser first and then manually making whatever additional transition or re-import FF wanted? Had I known I needed to have made a lot of notes in order to have backup at all, I would have... or would have picked a safer browser to rely on, if auto-update wipe-out risk is to be the "normal" given environment now. Bookmarks are not just frivolous things for a fair number of folks.

Heartsick. Hoping there's still a third route for restoring, beyond the total loss and brickwalls experienced so far.
