Hello,

eg. at these websites: https://www.zetor-forum.de or https://www.hobby-gartenteich.de

I and also all other FireFox using members can't logout from and when we load the site, we mostly see older content instead of the new one. The behavoir come up wit FireFox v77 and we can reproduce at the above named sites eg.

The FF Dev-consol gives me no hint what kind of problem FF with this site has.

Other Browsers, like Chrome or Edge render the site with actual content and login/logout is without trouble possible.

So I come to my question: What can be the problem, that FF not render the newest content at this sites and let me not logout eg? I have no right idea, what we can do, that FF will be happy with our sites as bevor v77. What can I do to found the problem and what to fix it?

Both sites uses Xenforo 1.5.28 (latest), PHP 7.3.x, MariaDB 10.x, Redis Cache server side

I hope anybody can give me a hint, so I can do my best to solve it.

Best regards, Joachim

Two things: 1. change default selected option in pdf tab, 2. permission requests not working with 78.0.1

I have two questions:

1st one:

Sadly I didn't know my browser had automatic updates on and now I got updated to 78.0.1. You added this nice feature that allows opening pdf files instead of downloading them or opening them in external software. very good, i needed that sooo many times already when pages forced me to download trash instead of letting me view in browser. My problem is, that I usually need to download files. Still I want to be asked everytime what to do

 -> I want that whenever a download request for pdf happens, the "download file" is selected by default (instead of the "open pdf in browser"). Also I want to be asked so I am afraid firefox won't ask me anymore if I check the "always do this" checkbox. Is there a way to be asked about what to do with the pdf with a different default option than "open in browser"? Or is the checkbox exactly what I need to check? I just don't want to break my browser...
2nd one:

Since personal meetings disappeared we are using WebEx. Until my browser updated whenever I joined the meeting-URL a popup opened that created a "bridge" to the webex app where I would be connected to the room I just opened in browser. Since my browser updated these popups don't come up anymore which makes joining a webex room a ... little bit complicated. The same goes for discord -> before the update discord in browser asked for permission to use my microphone. Now I am not asked anymore if I want to share my mic. Nothing happens and I am muted in discord. Please tell me how to solve this. Thx in advance!

Today, July 8, 2020, I am unable to use Firefox to login to my NFCU account. Called the Credit Union and it is not on their end. Log in for CU works on Chrome, Internet Explorer and Bing. Error message is: - - - Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://signon.navyfederal.org/siteminderagent/forms/nfcu.fcc" on this server.

Reference #18.3c09c617.1594220052.49fad8a3 - - - This login method has worked for over a decade on Firefox and most recently as June 30, 2020. Now it no longer accepts the login page as valid. I have tried clearing the cache/history/cookies - no result.

Earlier this morning, Chrome gave me the same message, but it is now working with the Credit Union login. Firefox is the browser I use most and is my preferred browser. I do not want to use Bing for banking. Please fix this issue.

Thanks.

Recent Updates Blocking Content

With recent updates shave had 3 problems on my desktop (Windows 7). All settings are default .... everything was fine until the last 2 or 3 updates.... have changed 0 settings over this time. AV is Kaspersky but I have it turned off. FF 78.0.1

1. Every Video I try and watch now has sound off by default ... PITA unmuting all the time. That's what Id like if it is a pop-up I have no interest in but if I PLAY the video, I want to hear it. This has been going on since maybe 4 updates back.

2. It has become a thing of late for authors not to bother writing, but to just include a bunch of twitter posts. I'm not so perturbed about not being able to see them (tho would like to know whats blocking them) ... just a gray box that jumps around, but after scrolling past them the page / text is jumping around. This started 2 updates back

3. With the last update, a new one .... for a game I play with my kids on line, we use a map

https://ballisticmystix.net/?p=map

The page pulls in a grid map which I can no longer see, map area is all black. I just see the names and a grid pattern. Weird thing is It works fine on my laptop. This started on desktop just a few days ago

4. For whatever reason, my laptop "lost" most of its bookmarks


Note: I am typing from my laptop ... all but item 4 are issues on the desktop

Firefox Stutter every 10 seconds (not sessionstore related ?)

Hello,

I recently had to switch back to my laptop and noticed that firefox is micro-stuttering (missing a couple of frame at worse) at a somewhat regular interval. Which is very noticable and head-ache inducing when watching a youtube video.

I tried to disable every plugins that I have, switching to a new profile, setting browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo and browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo to 0, closing everything in the background, clearing cookies caches and etc.

Nothing worked, I noticed that disabling window's "Hardware-Accelerated GPU Scheduling" helped. With it on I've got a very regular micro stutter (every 10 seconds) whereas with it turned off I "only" get a microstutter once every 20/30 ish seconds. Therefore I suspect some shenanigans with optimus drivers but I don't know for sure how to confirm. I tried to force firefox to use the integrated gpu with nvidia pannel but it didn't help.

I would have capture a video to show off the problem but everytime I start recording (with lenovo's nerve sense capture software) the problem totally disappears !

Anyone have any ideas about what could be happening / how to diagnose more precisely the problem ? Thanks for reading.

specs :Windows 10 (x64), Firefox 78.0.1 (x64), Intel Core i5-7300HQ, optimus GPUS : Intel HD Graphics 630 + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Max-Q)

Cannot connect to one specific website (weather.com)

As of about a week ago I have been unable to connect to https://weather.com using Firefox 78.0.1 64bit on Windows 10 Pro. As far as I have found in my regular browsing this is the only website with this problem; other websites open properly. The problem with https://weather.com occurs no matter how I try to connect - selecting a bookmark that worked in the past or typing directly in the address bar. If I am using an empty blank window what I see is a window that remains blank. The name that I typed in shows in the address bar but there is no padlock icon and no trackers shield. I am attaching a screen shot.

If I open Firefox in a private window I AM able to connect to https://weather.com as I could before in the ordinary window. I am also able to connect to https://weather.com using other browsers.

Any suggestions as to what has happened and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, as of today July 2, 2020, I can no longer drag and drop tabs in Firefox to reposition them. Earlier today I had restarted firefox and an update had been pushed through.

I have tried to restart Firefox in safe mode without any extensions, but the problem persists. I don't want to "refresh" firefox and start from scratch. I've opened Chrome and can still drag and drop tabs there just fine.

Please fix this ASAP!

Update version change and profile deletion problems

I was running version 72. as of Feb-18-2020 and have FF set to notify me of updates but not automatically update. I realized that the latest version 73.01 was available but I had not received any notification of the update from my public IP of 104.158.49.18.

When I updated to 73 by directly downloading the file from "https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/" and installed the upgrade went directly to version 73.01 so I downgraded it to 73 and noticed that my profile was erased. 

Why would FF not notify me of a new realease since 2 versions where available 73 and 73.01 ? Is it normal for a minor version 73.01 to 73.0 downgrade to erase the profile ? I know a major version does this.
