Win 10laptop had Firefox installed and working. Suddenly stopped after some windows updates. I have Uninstalled several times, both vanilla and using IOBIT program. Deleted the program file folder, and the local apps profile. Won't start in safe mode either. I don't even see anything in task manager when clicking. No error messages.

However.....tried installing developer version and it works fine!

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

We use GPO to push out our Firefox homepage and bookmarks. I get totally different results for each user, some will make changes right away if I add a new book marks, but they don't see older ones?

I decided to build a few test machines (we don't have time to build a dev envir) and it applies the GPO for the home page but not the bookmarks, I can see the book marks in the registry even but nothing on firefox. Anyone have a guess?

thanks David

I cannot copy and paste from one Google doc into another Google doc in Firefox. But I can in Google Chrome.

I don't know the reason for this. Is it because Google (Chrome & Drive) does not want competition? Is it because this inter-doc copy-and-paste requires code that Mozilla doesn't want to bake into Firefox?

Doing this on windows Firefox running the latest version as of yesterday (Aug 10 2022).

I keep my settings on "restore previous session" upon startup; because I use several windows and tabs to organize work on different projects and my general workflow.

After the latest update. Firefox (I'm using developer edition for some reason) crashes upon startup. One of the crash notification windows had me open up in safe mode, which excluded my extensions. There (in safe mode) my previous session opened up and stayed open without crashing. I disabled a few extensions that I no longer use and closed several tabs to see if that would effect the crash problem. I then exited Firefox (I couldn't figure out how to exit safe mode otherwise) and reopened via the start menu. Firefox now opens to what is essentially a new session and I can't figure out how to open the previous one. I'm guessing it "refreshed"? Regardless, is there a way to recover my "previous session" or is it lost forever?

Hello,

I've been using firefox for a while. A few versions ago (I don't remember the correct version), I started noticing some sites have broken font (defaulting the base font as used font is not available) and/or icons not being displayed.

I started investigating my extensions (I'm using ublock origin) and standard protection from firefox. Inside the console and found out that fonts (in my example at least) are being block by CORS policy.

E.g: "Blocking of a cross-origin request: the "Same Origin" policy does not allow viewing the remote resource located at https://fonts.gstatic.com/s/materialicons/v135/flUhRq6tzZclQEJ-Vdg-IuiaDsNc .woff2. Reason: CORS request failed. Status code: (null)." on website "https://materializecss.com/"

That is not breaking the browser but is kinda annoying. How can I do to allow fonts to be downloaded and used ? I've checked with other browsers (chrome/chrome-like/safari) and they work as excepected. Note that it's perfectly working for the very same website on firefox iOS

Thanks !

I've got an old Windows XP computer running version 52.9.0. I'm trying to sign in to Sync (so I can sync with my new Windows 10 computer) but when I try on the old machine I get this error message:

Blocked by Content Security Policy

This page has a content security policy that prevents it from being loaded in this way.

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this way because the page has a content security policy that disallows it.

I've signed in on the new computer, not that it matters.

Is the any way I can connect to Sync?

Every so often, Firefox fails to display a video. In this example, Firefox briefly displays what appears to be the first frame, then displays the message "The Media Could Not Be Played". I've tried with Troubleshoot Mode, and clearing history (cache, cookies, site settings, offline website data). How can I find out what's blocking? The example is a Twitter post on Wed 08/17/2022. I hope it is still there. https://twitter.com/i/status/1551522653705576449

fake "update available" for firefox

Every time I launch Firefox a message appears on the top right corner asking to update with the following text: "Update available Download the latest version of Firefox"

I have never followed this message for I've suspected fake, but it keeps appearing, and every time more and more often along the day (at the beginning it was only once per launch). This keeps occurring in spite of updating to the latest Firefox update (103.0.2) through the "About Firefox" top left menu on my Mac.

Please advise how to get rid of this annoying message. Is this a potential hack or virus attack?

Permission Problem with Camera

We have a customer using our SaaS solution running through Firefox 91.12.0 ESR. The web application we provide requires access to the camera on the local machine so we can capture a photo. We give them instructions and they configure their instance of Firefox to ALLOW access to the camera, along with several other adjustments (like allowing pop-ups, and no autofill).

However, whenever they restart Firefox the camera permission reverts back to the DEFAULT of Always Ask. The other settings adjustments we make, like pop-ups and no autofill stick around, but not the camera setting.

We've checked the PREF.js file in the Profile folder and that doesn't appear to be a problem. On our in-house machines we are running the same version of Windows and Firefox and cannot reproduce the problem.

The customer has recently applied the upgrade from an earlier version of Firefox ESR to 91.12.0. The customer has also imaged the PC and copied over to a large number of additional machines for use around their organization. This problem is causing a serious disruption to their deployment of the updated PC's as we work with them to try and troubleshoot the problem.

Any ideas on what to try would be appreciated.

How to kill hung download?

When I attempt to download a large file, for example this one, Firefox often:

  1. consumes my entire available Internet bandwidth, leaving other applications and devices unable to connect to the Internet, or even to other devices on my LAN.
  2. hangs, i.e. the download doesn't show any progress in the Firefox UI

When I attempt to cancel the download, Firefox does not react. Even if I close Firefox, the download continues to absorb the entire available network capacity. The PC (runniong Windows 10 21H2) can not be shut down normally; I can only stop the process by pressing and holding the PC's power button to effect a hard shutdown. When I restart the PC and restart Firefox, Firefox automatically attempts to resume the failed download, with the same results described above. How can I prevent Firefox from hogging all available network capacity for downloads? How can I terminate hung downloads in a more elegant manner? How can I prevent Firefox from attempting to resume failed downloads the next time I start it? I am currently using Firefox 103.0.2. AFAIK, this is also the latest version at this time.
