I have recently installed Firefox Developer Edition on my Linux Mint 20.3 laptop. It has more than the required resources to run Firefox smoothly but has one problem: (like in this post: https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1200248, the solution for that didn't work...) When I click a link in an external application it opens a new window with one empty tab but the URL won't be opened, neither in the previously open window now in the new window. I would have added a screen recording if possible but here seems to only be a screenshot possible.

Hi,

I use firefox on both a work and home computer, as well as my phone (iOS). I have sync active on all three devices, yet the synced tabs only ever shows one device's tabs. On both computers, the iOS tabs are all that displays in synced tabs, and on iOS, only one of the two computer's tabs are shown, and often with the wrong name - I haven't found out what determines which computer's tabs shows in the synced tabs menu or which name is used, but it definitely isn't which computer was used more recently, for either requirement.

All of a sudden most websites won’t open and I am getting the error message “Your connection to this site is not secure”. I am able to open Google.com and all of it’s links, as well as Yahoo.com. I am also able to open various random websites, but not all. I can open apple.com, but not support.apple.com.

When I click on the information provided for sites I can not open I see two things: 1) Verified by: Not specified 2) Technical details: Connection not encrypted

When I open Google for example I see 1) Verified by: Google… 2) Technical details: Connection encrypted

Obviously support.apple.com and support.Firefox.com are verified and encrypted website, so the problem must be on my end.

I have tried many fixes including clearing out cache, web browsing, unplugging my computer and modem, full virus scan, offline webdefender scan, system restore (which didn’t work), changing the DNS to 8888 and 8844.

I am using a Dell Desktop with Windows 10. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thank you.

Can you tell me why One Drive won't open using the Outlook App Launcher? Microsoft is done with me, since One Drive runs for me in Chrome and with a direct link. But I usually access it through the App Launcher (nine boxes in the upper right corner of Hotmail/Outlook). What happens is this: When I select One Drive, a new tab opens, the status wheel turns for about a minute, then it stops on a blank page, no explanation or error message. (I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Windows 10.)

I cannot login to my account (had to open a new one to even post this post..).

I do not have my authenticator app since my phone broke. I do have the "One-time use codes" which I saved. But, alas, how to make them work?

For some reason I was not presented with the "step 2"-code when I reset my authenticator the last time...

I will now be rude: Should I just give up on my Firefox account, and thus Firefox, and go straight back to Chrome (which does not have this problem)?

Might there be a way of telling my Firefox to autoclose a specific popup on a specific site? There are half a dozen sites I use regularly that have ones that are useless to me but that use a method not caught by the standard "block pop-up windows" (yes, I have it enabled). It would be such a convenience, in particular when following news links around. And to default to "accept all cookies" on popups would also be very helpful (I enable the Clear history when Firefox closes option to reduce tracking). I've read about uBlock Origin: does it allow me to start my own list and add to it when I'm on a page that has the problem? And, doesn't 'blocking' have to tell the site? autoclosing wouldn't.

Firefox behavior with virtual desktops in Windows 10

Hello dear Firefox experts,

I have been using Firefox for years and of course I would like to continue doing so. :-)

I work with Windows 10 and have learned to appreciate the virtual desktops, which can be set up via the key combination "Windows + Tab". About the desktops can then be distinguished, for example, in "Office" and "Private".

In total, I have actively set up 4 different desktops.

FF I have set up as the "default app" in the Windows settings.

Now it is the case that I have a Firefox window open in the "private desktop", for example.

But when I work in the "office desktop" and click on a URL, the office desktop automatically switches to the private desktop and opens the URL in the FF already opened there in a new tab! :-(

So I have to remember before to open a new Firefox window in the office desktop to display the desired page also on this desktop.

Unfortunately, this doesn't always work.

If I work in the meantime in another of the 4 active desktops and use Firefox there and return to the office desktop and want to open a URL there again, the desktop jumps back to where I last used the already opened FF. This is quite annoying in the long run.

That's why I ran a test today with Google Chrome and MS Edge and defined each of them as the default app for testing.

Stupidly, these two browsers work exactly as I want them to. If I have already opened one of these browsers in another desktop, the URL will still open in the current desktop and any additional URL as another tab will correctly open in the current desktop.

If I now switch to the private desktop and open a URL there, it will correctly open in a new tab in this desktop.

I hope I was able to illustrate my "problem" so far?

Now my question? How can I change the behavior in FF? This seems to be a standard of FF in contrast to both other browser programs. Disabling in the FF settings "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" seems to be only a rudimentary solution;

but then a new window is opened every time, which is also not useful.


Can something be adjusted in the "deeper" settings?

Many thanks in advance for your tips.

Best regards, Georg

This is getting frustrating as other webpages are loading normally e.g. duckduckgo, amazon. As I use google primarily for browsing and work this is making firefox unusable for me at the moment. I have temporarily switch to Edge which also seems to work fine.
