Hi,

I am using custom links ('thunderlink://...') with a registered handler. This always worked well and still does.

However it seems like the newest releases of firefox (not sure when exactly it started) open a new tab, with just the link in the address bar, before calling the handler. Which leaves me with unnecessary, blank, open tabs.

Any idea how I can suppress the opening on a new tab on such custom link?

Thanks!

Whenever I sign in to Ebay or Facebook or Messenger using Firefox , I immediately receive text and email warnings about a sign in from an unrecognised computer, asking if it was actually me. This does not happen when I use other browsers (Chrome or IE) so the problem seems to be with Firefox. How can I get these websites to recognise my PC and stop sending me these alerts?

I recently signed up for YouTube Premium. The interface for YouTube then changed to an absolutely awful new interface with multiple problems. I could (and will if asked) provide a list of these shortcomings, but far and away the most disturbing is NO VOLUME CONTROL!

I've tried logging out so that Premium no longer applies, but the awful interface remains.

I've tried logging into Premium on Chrome and the normal, useable interface is preserved.

I've performed multiple internet searches and cannot find any reference to this new(?) terrible interface, am I the only one who hast it?

My main question is: how do I get rid of it? Or do I have to reconcile myself to having to change my default browser to Chrome?

I was just examining the PageInfo area in Firefox for our Remote Desktop gateway. When I first click on the padlock, it says in green 'You are securely connected to this site'. However, when I click 'More information', under the 'Security' tab>Technical Details, it says 'The web site (our site) does not support encryption for the page you are viewing'.

This seems strange - Firefox is happy with the SSL cert - everything green. The site has an HTTPS address, and HTTP is disabled. By virtue of it being an HTTPS connection, it's encrypted, SSL cert or not. If the cert was bad, and I clicked to proceed anyway, it would still be encrypted - that's what HTTPS does.

So what doesn't Firefox like about the page? Any thoughts most welcome.

Thanks.

PS neither Chrome nor Edge flag up anything similar, in their equivocal areas.

I would like for Firefox to be able to: Warn me when closing multiple tabs without restoring my previous session.

I have researched online and tinkered with the browser's settings and I could only manage to make Firefox warn me when closing multiple tabs when I also had the option to Restore previous session enabled. I hope that something can be worked out in about:config.

The use-case where this happens most for me is when I want to open two different email inboxes at once:

  • I type "mail" into the search bar in a new tab.
  • The autocomplete suggestions show from my history the two email inboxes.
  • I middle click one of the links
  • Firefox opens the link in a new tab, I am still focused on the new tab (this is wanted), but the search bar is cleared, and I must now type "mail" again to bring up the suggestions again.

The previous browser I used did not do this, and coming over from that browser it makes it quite annoying to have to type "mail" twice. I do not want to put the links into bookmarks and access them that way.

I used to be able to access the support community through a dedicated account, but I am forced to use my Firefox account now. According to the instructions (in Dutch), I would be enabled to link the two as a next step. This turns out not to be the case and I cannot select my previous display name either. Any suggestions how to fix this?

Hello,

I tend to have Firefox running with two multi-account containers - one for work and one for personal accounts. Typically I tend to have a window open with work tabs and a separate window with personal tabs. Often I close this and recall them with ctrl+shift+n. However I sometimes find that popups will get into the stack of closed windows - either things like paypal pop-outs or Visual Studio starting a browser when debugging. Done enough times I loose the window (and all the tabs) that I previously had (as the stack of closed windows only seems to hold 2-3 windows).

Is there any way to mark a window / tab configuration as 'persistent' so that even if I close that window & open others I can restore that particular window / tab configuration? Ideally without having to manually save it somewhere each time - I tend to like to just pick up with personal work where I left off rather than saving a set of default tabs.

Thanks in advance!
