When I try to go to my webmail I sometimes am presented with a Deceptive Site Ahead warning.

I am quite happy that although the SSL might not be current that the website is safe for me to go there. How do I stop this annoying feature from activating?

My Firefox used to do this and it either rarely does it now or never does it. And that is... when I would type in, say, "anysite.com," it would have an alert and ask if I want to go to a certain already open tab. I could then click on it and go to that open tab, such that I do not open a new tab. Which would be redundant. How I can I make it do this again? I always have a LOT of tabs open!

After updating my openSUSE Firefox package from version 122 to 123 every frame inside each window started to have weird grey overlay of scrollable area. I failed to find any description of such a thing happening, let alone how to get rid of it. I tried removing build-in distro-default preferences and had complete audit of all my custom preferences in about:config but none changed that behavior. I even updated to 124b4 but this also haven't changed anything. Naturally, nuking entire profile is not an option, I might as well replace the whole browser. So, how do I get rid of this thing?

Since this week I have been unable to access flightradar24 web site due to a problem with WebGL. It tells me that I need a compatible browser e.g. Firefox

I am running Linux Mint 21.3 Cinnamon on and I7 processor with a NVIDIA Corporation GK208B [GeForce GT 710] graphics card.

I have edited the about:config file as follows:

webgl.force_enabled TRUE

but noted a collection of failed messages as shown on the attached screen shot.

This web site is still accessible using chromium on the same computer, suggesting that there isn't a hardware problem.

Hi all,

I feel like this is a problem that must have been experienced and solved a thousand times... however I've tried all the suggested fixes I can find and the problem still persists.

When I load Firefox the pages take ages to load. It doesn't matter what the page is, it takes ages, except that about: pages load fine, no problem. When I say pages take ages to load, I mean that everything about the page takes ages, not only the next, not on the images and other content etc, everything. This only started happening today and I only created a new profile a month or so ago. I don't have many tabs open (maybe 20) of which 9 are pinned. I do have lots of extensions installed.

I've tried troubleshooting/safe mode, that makes no difference.

Private browsing and loading another profile are fine, they don't have this problem.

I've cleared all cache and data, cookies, etc, including startup cache.

I've deleted the content-prefs file, and removed places files.

I've tried disabling and enabling hardware acceleration.

I've tried disabling TRR.

Probably some other things too, but so far nothing has worked.

Suggestions please! :)

I deleted Firefox from my Windows 11 computer because it was having issues. I reinstalled but I did not get back the same settings I have on my laptop. I have tried to do a complete uninstall and remove all Firefox files but, there are files attached to my Avast antivirus that I can't delete. Also when I down load it wont Sync. Firefox is my browser of preference and I do not want to use another browser. I should also note that Firefox has been completely removed from program files, program files(x86) as well as program data but there are still file in Avast and Windows. See picture attached. Help I really love Firefox

In the browser settings I use a color preference that replaces white with black, this works with pages where Dark Reader is not available. These settings are needed so that when surfing the web at night with the dark mode on, my eyes don't hurt from contrasting bright white elements with dark-colored pages. For example, it works on single image pages - in situations where except for the image the rest of the page is colored solid white; It also works for some add-ons - on settings pages and pop-ups.

I'm interested in being able to automate toggling on/off the «Use system colors» checkbox, which is in the browser «Color» settings. It would be great to somehow synchronize the activation of night mode in Dark Reader with disabling checkbox responsible for using system colors. Or, for example, make it so that when the «Website appearance» setting is set to «Automatic», the checkbox is switched accordingly together with it - being disabled when the appearance is dark and enabled when it is light.

I have never managed to get Firefox Sync to work on my devices, I don't know why. I don't get an error message saying it failed or why it failed. I run Firefox on desktop (Linux) and Android, both always updated to the latest version.

My use case is simple, I just want my mobile Firefox to have all the bookmarks I have on desktop already.

On Android, when I go to my account settings it says "Las synced: never". Clicking the "Sync now" button does absolutely nothing.

On Desktop I go to Settings - Sync, press the Sync button. It appears to work, though no feedback is ever provided.

When I go to about:sync-log, on desktop, finally an error is shown. It seems to attempt to connect to https://sync-765-us-west-2.sync.services.mozilla.com/1.5/207352084/info/collections and fails. Manually going to the URL also fails on both desktop and mobile. Entire log below

If I right click on an iframe when browsing in a container tab, and select "This Frame -> Open in New Tab", the new tab is not in the same container as the source tab. In fact it is not in any container.

Whereas when middle-clicking on a normal link to open it in a new tab, the new tab is in the same container as the source tab.

Is this a bug? Seems like a bug to me. Surely we would want the new tab to use the same container as the source tab?
