Hello! When I set up my website restrictions on Mac Ventura (System Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy > Content Restrictions > Access to Web Content > Customize), Safari blocks my sites but Firefox does not.

From what I see (eg, this article ), Firefox should block the same sites. Am I wrong?

I appreciate your help!

Hello,

I am desperately trying to recover lost tabs from Firefox Browser after 2 crashes, freezing and forced shutdowns. I need the tabs for my work, and as usually happens, this has occurred at a time when I'm running to meet a critical deadline.

I've tried going to history, but the "recently closed tabs" option was greyed out:-( I've tried searching for other solutions, but cannot fine any that fit my situation. I'm not an IT expert - I know my way around what I need to use (i.e. professional worker), so clear & simple explanation would be much appreciated.

Can I recover the lost tabs from backed up data or a previous system image? My system is Windows 7, and I'm currently running Firefox version 115.0.2. All suggestions welcome!

Thanking you in anticipation off prompt assistance, MLH

I use userChrome.css and userContent.css to (1) turn unvisited links bright red, and (2) turn visited links bright purple, and (3) add underlines to all links.

This works well on light backgrounds, makes links easy to see and easy to distinguish from other text, but makes them harder to see on pages with dark backgrounds.

Is there a way to vary the link color to improve contrast? I can't use the default colors because most sites use blue links which are hard to distinguish from black text.

When I pressed the "+" symbol at the right side of my tabs with the left mouse button, a new tab opens at the most right place. So far, so easy.

When I pressed the same "+" symbol using the middle mouse button, the new tab opened right beside the active tab. Now, middle mouse button and left mouse button do the same thing.

Work around could be to open the context menu (right mouse button) of a tab, choose "new tab" an get a new tab right beside the tab chosen with the mouse pointer while pressing the right mouse button.

Did something recently change?

I run a local web server from my desktop PC. As the person running it, I access it only from my desktop PC, and only my account has a password. (All other accounts must be created by me, and have very limited access.) When I log in, Firefox whinges that it's not running on https, which is not my fault, as I didn't write this server. I cannot change servers. How can I prevent Firefox whinging about my lack of a secure (despite being local only) connection?

I can't get media keys to stop popping up, even though I've changed the media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled flag to false in about:config.

What do I need to do to turn this off? If I'm using a physical key on my keyboard to change the track, why would I need media controls to popup onscreen and stay in the way for several seconds?

Hello Firefox, Firefox freezing when viewing image collections and YouTube videos. Firefox on my two laptops is set to automatically update. Caches are frequently cleared and no History kept. Ghostery is connected but says it does not stop content.

An image collection website (Pinterest) frequently sends me emails (Thunderbird) with links to their collections. Thunderbird connects over Firefox. After approximately 10-15 minutes of viewing, the screen freezes. Although the cursor moves it will not select any closing of the webpage etc. Release is only possible with the Task Manager (Control+Alt+Delete) but it is very slow to obtain. The same is true when viewing YouTube videos directly over Firefox. Again it requires the Task Manager to release everything. This situation has been evident for about two months now. However this snag does not occur if I go over Google Chrome to both websites. I will welcome any suggestions since I am not keen to move to Google Chrome. Any query, please advise details. Kind regards, Tim Simpson

For some reason the font seems to have reduced in websites when using Firefox, including BBC and Whatsapp. Zoom is set at 100%, so this isn't the issue. As you can see from the attached example the text in the body of this page is very small. When I use other browsers it is fine.

Upon first opening Firefox and loading the homepage, the appearance of the Sponsored Site tiles and Recommended by Pocket section does not look correct. Only after opening an additional tab are they displayed as they should be. The alignment of the tiles is not correct, and text is missing from the Pocket section.

I've attached images showing the first startup/incorrect appearances and the correctly rendered page after opening a new tab. (The red markup was added by myself for demonstrative purposes).

This issue seems to have only occurred recently, and I'm not running any extensions. The issue happens every time I open Firefox (I'm not restoring any previous tabs or sessions). I've tried clearing the startup cache, but that hasn't had an effect. Anyone else had this problem or have any ideas how to fix it?

Our IT specialist at UW-Madison is stumped and suggested I reach out to Firefox. He was helping me troubleshoot why Firefox keeps saying it's sending a code to verify my account, but I never receive the code. He has added the "accounts" email to my contacts and I don't know what else to do or try. Any ideas from the community? I need my bookmarks after upgrading to Windows 11 and can't imagine trying to recreate them all.

I have a Plesk (apache) server that is behind HAProxy. When I connect securely to a web site through HAProxy using Firefox, I get long delays. If I use Safari or Chrome, the pages come right up without any delay.

If I connect to the Plesk server directly without HAProxy in the middle, there are no delays.

I do not know what would cause these delays that don't occur with other browsers.

I'm on a Mac: 115.0.2 (64-bit)

As I use Firefox throughout the day, webpages will just stop for a bit. Sometimes its only a few seconds, other times for a few minutes. It is most noticeable when playing videos but does happen at other times as well. During the halt, I can still access Firefox's settings and all menu items. It is just website interactions that stop.

For example, when a halt occurs on youtube, the video will eventually stop, depending on the buffer, and scrolling through the comments won't pull up any more and replies won't load. Then after a few moments, everything will start working again without issue, and all the uncompleted actions (such as opening new replies or trying to go to another page) will execute.

I used to think it was related to my computer's connection to our company's access server, but refreshing my connection through a CMD ipconfig /renewall worked so rarely that I assume it was just coincidental timing.

I also tried turning off hardware acceleration, but that had no positive effect. I'll make a separate post about that issue.

The thing that fixes it every time is odd: launching Chrome. I wanted to make sure it was just Firefox, so I tried launching Chrome, and then Firefox started working immediately. (Spotify still plays when Firefox halts too)

Is there anything I can adjust to keep this halting from happening? I can manage right now, but it is sort of annoying to launch Chrome every time.

Firstly, I have a brain injury. I am easily overwhelmed by information and am slow to understand - especially anything to do with I.T.

Recently, I began successfully accessing the internet / Firefox via my Wifi Repeater. As of two or three days ago. I keep being asked to "log in to access the Internet", but even after I do it (successfully, as far as my repeater is concerned) I'm no further forward; I keep being asked to log in.

Thanks to my repeater I have a strong signal when in my garden office. But after a month, Firefox has suddenly stopped allowing me to use it. I am back at Square 1, before I purchased the thing.

I need need to work from my office. Please help resume my Repeater's access.

Kind regards,

Sean
