A tab for the Etsy website automatically appears every time FF starts up. How to stop this?

Just began after using the site a couple of times, but I did not indicate or click a setting on the Etsy site to ask for this.

All solution suggestions seem to be for pop-up ads, and don't work to block a website. Is there a way to block this?

Intermittent Master Password Recognition Issue with External Keyboard on Firefox for Ubuntu

Hello,

I've encountered a recurring issue with Firefox on Ubuntu where my master password is sporadically not recognized when typed using my external wireless keyboard. This problem does not occur consistently but is particularly frustrating when it does, as it forces me to switch to my laptop's keyboard for input. I'm certain the password is entered correctly; after multiple careful attempts (3-5 times), the issue persists, leading to unnecessary stress and inconvenience.

    • Environment:**

- **Operating System:** Latest version of Ubuntu - **Hardware:** Dell Latitude laptop with a Contour external wireless keyboard, connected through a Dell docking station. This setup is shared with another laptop (HP) via the docking station.

    • Observations:**

- The issue seems to occur sporadically and is not reproducible on demand, adding to the frustration. - It has happened notably on the first login attempt after the computer's first boot of the day. - On one occasion, the problem led me to change my master password under the mistaken belief it had been compromised.

    • Impact:**

This intermittent recognition issue disrupts my workflow and significantly affects my user experience with Firefox. The necessity to switch input methods and the initial misinterpretation of the problem as a security concern are particularly concerning.

I hope this detailed feedback assists in identifying and resolving the issue. Thank you for your attention to this matter Firefox.

Sincerely, Daniel

When I visit the web site virtueonline.org using Firefox browser, the Disqus comment section does not appear below articles on the site. Sometimes, when I go in and out of the article, the Disqus comment section will appear, but not always. When I use Microsoft Edge, the Disqus comment sections appear.

On a couple of sites (e.g. Petapixel) when I click "Load Comments", nothing happens. I suspect this may be because Firefox security is preventing comments from loading because of site tracking or other security issues. Is this the cause?

TL;DR : Disqus comments used to work while using privacy Strict mode now it doesn't.

After years of it working out of the get-go while using Strict mode up till recently (about a year ago this was really low on my priority list) refused to work I though it was my Ad blocker was causing issues but after setting it in the filters to allow and even after turning it off still no dice.

Removed all add-ons tried again still Disqus comment section refused to load in the websites I regularly visit. So after giving up, I just look around in the browser setting to see if there is anything that may cause conflict with certain scripts from running.

Hi,

My saved passwords are not showing up. I followed the advice on this post, by setting signon.debug and doing about:logins. Here are the errors shown in the console:

LoginManager: Getting a list of all logins asynchronously. LoginManager.sys.mjs:395:14 Login storage: Returning 502 logins for specified origin with options [object Object] storage-json.sys.mjs:704:10 Login crypto: Failed to decrypt cipher text of length 92 with error NS_ERROR_FAILURE. crypto-SDR.sys.mjs:179:12

   ->
   decrypt resource://gre/modules/crypto-SDR.sys.mjs:197
   decryptLogins resource://gre/modules/storage-json.sys.mjs:966
   map self-hosted:221
   #decryptLogins resource://gre/modules/storage-json.sys.mjs:948
   InterpretGeneratorResume self-hosted:1465
   AsyncFunctionNext self-hosted:852

Then that last mesage is repeated another 501 times.

Any idea what is wrong. I have only one profile the default one. Firefox is up to date at 122.0.1 on iMac 12.7.3

Thank you David

Hello,

I use firefox synch (on 2 notebooks, 1 mobile device) with an outlook email adress, yet when I for example go on youtube my android gmail adress ist automatically filled in. Which is quite strange because it is neither stored in the firefox password manager nor did I give authorization to do so. I am using the lates version of Firefox (v.122.0.1).

Does anyone know why this happens?

Thx in advance, Timo

I have a local only test ca and test web server. How do I load the CA certificate into Firefox. Adding it via "settings" did not work, the browser says Adding a root via "settings" does nothing. When I access a web server it says "the original certificate provided by the server is untrusted", in the issuer name field. It never actually shows the certificate. Adding a file to the appdata area (this is on windows 10) also fails; changing the enterprise ca settings does not work. This used to work.

these last days, whenever i visits any page that fall under archiveofourown.org, i often end up with the page just trying to connect for ages, only to give up and say "secure connection" failed. and that " the authentication of the data could not be confirmed" (i don´t get an error code) sometimes it works, sometimes not. i can reach the pages fine on my phone, and on other browsers. i can also connect to other webpages so it´s not my connection that´s the issue. i use the page a lot, so this is really an issue. i recently switched over to firefox, and i don´t wanna have to switch back.
