Apparently Firefox doesn't allow the Vanguard website to "Remember this computer" to avoid having to do two factor authentication every time I log on. The Vanguard rep says this is a pattern with Firefox, as opposed to other browsers. Note: I only have "Enhanced Tracking Protection" selected in Firefox.

Greetings,

I just updated to Firefox 78.15.Oesr and now am unable to reorder my open windows. As a student, I may have several projects open at a given time, and like to have the project I am currently working on, next to the open Firefox window, for quick navigation between the browser and project. This option seems to have been disabled with the update. It is enough of a deal breaker that I may pursue reverting to the previous version of Firefox.

Also, the inability to delete bookmarks, and to close the bookmark window after selecting "show all bookmarks," remains a persistent frustration that I am surprised has not been addressed. With so many browser options available, these subtle annoyances are enough to prompt me to again shop around for alternatives, after being a Firefox devotee for over 10 years.

Thank you for your help, Josh Baker

I cannot set my preferences because the preferences menu will not display when I select Command, from the pulldown menu under Firefox in the top left banner. I am stuck with whatever this is. I cannot set my search engine. I cannot set my popup preference. I cannot set any preference. I use Mac BigSur 11.5.2. I can't share data. I am having trouble streaming my favorite radio station because I cannot reset my popup preference for the station. Nor can I use my search engine: DuckDuckGo without typing it into the Start search box because I cannot set my search engine preference. I cannot set other preferences because it seems I don't have any options since I can't get the preference menu.

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

Until recently, when I started typing in the address bar, FF was offering suggestions that were clearly based on addresses I had gone to in the past and seemed remarkably prescient about where I wanted to go. For example, if I typed the name of my hosting service, Seanet, one of the top 2 or 3 choices would be Seanet's login page.

Now, if I type "sean" for example, I get a bunch of irrelevant stuff ("sean connery") and about 10 lines down, it says "firefox suggests" and one of those is the login page. I ran into an article talking about how to change settings under privacy/address bar, but those don't affect this behavior. They change what might be the source of suggestions, and I limited it to browsing history, and that didn't help at all.

Maybe this is something that can't be fixed, but things were easier when FF listed very near the top the actual addresses I went to. Not all have deteriorated, e.g. (to reveal stuff about me) typing "x" gets xkcd.com as the first suggestion, and typing "e" gets explainxkcd.com as the first (sorry, sometimes I don't get the computer references and need an explanation).

Any help would be appreciated.

Good afternoon, We have a large quantity of PC's that we need to add a Pop-Up exception to for Firefox.

Is there a way to add this desired website pop-up exception via a script remotely? I know where to go to manually add a Pop-Up exception (Settings/Privacy & security/Allowed Website Pop-Up's). But is there a way to script this? Can this even be locked with a PrefLock line in a Mozilla.cfg file? I did a little digging and did not see anything. That would be ideal.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Please note that the remote machines are NOT a part of a domain. But I have complete connectivity to them as an administrator on the same network.

I had this issue and was not certain where the problem occurs, either the browser, my computer, or the applications involved. I could not find the problem by googling a solution so I tried to isolate the source of the problem. The images are not the issue; I can move and view them using a variety of apps. I shutdown and restarted windows 10, cleared cookies and data, and tried another browser (Chrome was downloaded and opened as a guest) . That's where I finally had some success. I was able to login to eBay and upload photos. I believe something is corrupted with FF. Has this type of problem been noticed and resolved before?
