While exploring about pages in Firefox, I came across about:profiling. I'm not sure what exactly it does, but since I've been to it, a profiler icon has been added to the toolbar and I can't find any way to get rid of it completely (only ways are to hide it). If it could be added, there must also be a way to remove it? How can I close it?

Someone logged into my account this morning around 0732 ET. My account was compromised. There are virtually no tools to see if I had any logged passwords or bookmarks that leave me vulnerable to further damage. - I can’t view access logs to see if my account was legitimately accessed or if I just got a phishing email (it’s uncharacteristically good if it’s phishing: looks identical, spoofed source, real IP reported) - There’s no note of sent emails that can give me confidence in email links (they don’t look useful anyway) - I can’t see if any saved passwords have been removed with a timestamp - I can’t see if bookmarks have been removed - I cant even report the compromised account

The lack of support built into the application is a real security concern. I stopped using FF for the time being. I don’t know if I feel safe using it in the future. It took my a while to reset my password. I think I’m good now but some logs or some sort of fraud response would go a long way.

I'm running Firefox 78.15.0esr on El Capitan 10.11.6 on my Mac Pro 4,1, 2009, because they are the last updates the computer can run.

Since approx 24 Sept, 10 days ago, I'v consistently been experiencing two types of glitch:

1. I can't UPLOAD photos to web sites. One says 'parse error'. Interestingly, the same is happening on WhatsApp (version 2.2236.10).

2. On some websites – a minority, but including Google sites – pages either don't load at all, they hang when loading, or they load without graphics content, or they load completely 'ASCII'.

I'm wondering whether it's either 1. a tweak in Firefox, or 2. a tweal in Mac OS 10.11.6, or 3. some other in global internet protocols that my old browser and old WhatsApp can't cope with

...or something else. Is the same happening to anyone else? Any ideas, anyone?

I am using Firefox 105.01 on a Macbook Pro (2022) with OS 12.6. My default email is Outlook for desktop. I do not use the mac email program. When I try to share a web page via email using Firefox's file/share/email, I get the dialog box shown in the attached screen shot. I have followed all instructions for setting up outlook as my default email on firefox (mailto) and it still results in this dialog box asking me to set up an email service. Can someone help me out of this trap? The work around of copying the URL into an email is doable, but it is many more steps than using Firefox's share function.

With thanks for any assistance.

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

I am appalled that your account deletion process is so bug ridden for a group that touts privacy so much.

No matter what I do, I get an 'Incorrect Password' error when I attempt to delete my account. I've tried changing my password. I've used the rest password link. I've changed it about 4 times now and the error persists.

Delete my account manually.

I run several versions of Firefox concurrently and recent added 102.3.0 ESR with no issues.

Backed Up bookmarks from a previous stable version to a .json file and imported to v102.3.0#

All the favicons were missing, replaced with a globe.

Visited a dozen sites to see if reloaded them but only 1 loaded icon. These are my own https sites with similar coding an NO code to hide icons - included google. No change.

Read all the posts I could. Verified databases, checked about:config BUT nothing changed, all bookmarks just show the globe icon. Even re-installed that version of Firefox, but same result. Started Firefox with an older profile from earlier version, for a rebuild. Same again.

Is this a bad feature of 102.3.0, an error or something else? Run 78.15ESR with same bookmarks and all are correct.

Any clues above all those published which do not work

John R - UK

p.s. anyone found a work around for THIS version to get green padlock back?

Hello, we are having an issue with one webpage we visit very often not displaying correctly on our computer screen using Firefox as the browser. We have used this page for 5+ years on Firefox and in the last few days it went from displaying 3 Columns to 2 Columns on Firefox (very annoying). If we look at this same website page in Microsoft Edge it displays correctly. We have tried various search options to figure this out with no luck ~ hoping this "community" can help us figure out why and what to do to fix this!
