Hello,

As the title mentions, applying a block to all extensions via "*" by utilizing Extension Management GPO will block about:debugging.

Is there a way to simultaneously have all extensions blocked and about:debugging available?

Here's the JSON - { "*": { "installation_mode": "blocked" } }


Appreciate your time and help, - Dom

Hello, in last few days I notice that when you try to save web page that has title ending with .com or anything like that saved file has .com extension instead of htm. I often use this option and I'm sure it must be one of the latest updates that started to cause that. Any chance it gonna get fixed and Firefox start adding .htm after .com?

For example try saving page https://www.naturalnews.com/ its title is "Natural Health News and Scientific Discoveries - NaturalNews.com" and saved file has .com extension. I need to fix it everytime and add .htm manually.

Hi, I use Verizon Fios and a Windows 10 PC. Firefox is my default browser. I don't experience any of the problems described below when using Chrome, which I only do now that Firefox is not working optimally.

In many, many years I've never had trouble with Firefox until about a month ago. When I opened the browser, I received messages -- about five times -- that it had crashed. After that, many websites now load very slowly, or not at all. And now, I'm unable to see product images on Amazon.

Would you please help me? I'm 84 and not all that computer savvy and I don't want to delete my browsing history, etc. Many thanks, Valerie

A few days ago, whenever I download an attachment from my email(Yahoo), the tab crashes after I do so. Assuming this is a Frefox issue....but not positive...has happened repeatedly since. Very annoying.

Also, upon restart of Firefox yesterday, all my cookies were reset automatically. Had to re-log in everywhere. This never has happened before, without out me manually doing this.

Any idea what is going on?

Running Firefox 102.0 in Win 10. When I try to download a PDF file, I get (1) a dialog box saying the download failed, (2) two 0 byte files in the download directory with the name of the PDF file I'm trying to download, and sometimes (3) a PDF file with a filename of 8 random characters that appears to be the file I'm trying to download. How do I fix this?

Attempted to login to Canada Revenue Agency and it told me that Java Script had to be activated in the browser. How do I determine if it is activated and how do I activate it if it is not. The strange thing is I was on the site an hour before without any issues so I am at a bit of a loss as to what has happened. It may be an issue with the CRA.

Thanks Doug

I have two Outlook accounts registered & one set as default. But, when I tried to setup my default in settings, Apps, default apps, email it only offers me Outlook.com (instead of my default choice) so automatically always selects the mail account I do not want! It used to work OK for years until I had a recent SSD failure & hence I need to reset it correctly. Your help page doesn't seem to tell me how to select the specific mail account I want (i.e. when you have more than one)? Please therefore tell me how to do that & also change your help notes accordingly.

Hello,

I have developed a three.js component that works without issue on chromium. On Firefox, part of it does not display.

<unable to upload images, the upload hangs <- happy to send via email>

See chromium.png for how it should look. In firefox.png you can see that it is missing the surface area. For reference, the 3d axes shown are three.js components also.

firefox_console.png shows issue loading webgl

firefox_console_after_force_enable.png shows the same after webgl.force_enable was set to True in the config.

Can you offer any advice here? Our customer is keen to continue using FF.

Thanks in advance. Scott

Specifically within the Firefox browser, I cannot access Reddit.com or other affiliate links. I am just getting a completely white screen, doesn't even say "Blocked". However I can visit Reddit in other browsers, with or without a VPN, while a VPN doesn't even change the outcome within the Firefox browser.

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

My Firefox is v102, 64-bit, on W10 Enterprise. ESR channel. It keeps telling me I need to update.

Under HELP, it fails to download whatever it is trying to update. Even though I got v102, I tried the online installer (mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new). Thinking about it now, I did not try an offline installer.

I been searching online and tried this policies.json file (github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md#backgroundappupdate) with these entries:

{

 "policies": {
   "AppAutoUpdate": false
 }

} {

 "policies": {
   "BackgroundAppUpdate": false
 }

}

But still not help.

Is there anything else I can try? There seems to be no simple option to click to not check for updates temporarily.

Thank you.

Hello,

I have many and long lists of bookmarks saved in the "Bookmarks Toolbar". The problem is that when I hover my mouse within the lists and sublists, the new rectangular form of a certain list (within another list) places over the old one in a way that I cannot distinguish the beginning/end of each one.

Can that be fixed or is there another theme that will help me see clearly the boundaries of each bookmark list/sublist?

Thank you!

My installation of 32-bit Firefox 102 had been repeatedly crashing, sometimes for no apparent reason. I decided to download the 64-bit version of Firefox 102, uninstalled the 32-bit version, carried out a standard installed and all this appeared successful. I noticed that I was getting a lot of advertisements and remembered that I had had Ghostery installed as an extension in my 32-bit Firefox. I went to the extensions page, selected Ghostery and asked for it to be added. Shortly after that, I got a message that the installation had been aborted because the extension might be corrupt. I tried again and got the same message. I tried another ad blocker, and got the same message with that one; and tried a third with the same result. What is going on? I haven't changed any settings in Firefox since the standard installation, and the extensions were from the Firefox source, so how can the extensions be corrupt? If it isn't corrupt, why isn't Firefox installing it?

My "save" passwords is enable, but I am not being prompted to save the login information for new websites as well as websites that are already saved but I have more than one logins.

I thought if I edit one login, I could add or the system would ask me to replace or save as new, but it doesn't and I can't find why is it that I am not being prompt to save the information.

Not sure if its just this one page or other websites and it is just a setting that influence this behavior.

Any ideas? Thank you
