I find when I am browsing on Firefox and swipe down on my Macbook trackpad, the browser often interprets even a slightly leftward slant as a command to go back a page. Is there a way to disable the swipe left/previous page function or to make it less sensitive?

Firefox 94.0.2 on Macbook Air 13-inch Early 2015 with MacOS 11.6.1

Thanks!

After the latest release of Firefox, it is automatically forcing https on our site EquestrianCoach.com. We do not have a security certificate at this time (yes I know we need one and we are working on it). Therefore we get a "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" page and no one can access the site. Even if you manually try to take out the "s" it directs right back to https. I heard Firefox does this if it detects a SSL, but again, we do not have one or never did for this site. I see other sites with no ssl work fine. Is there a work around to not have Firefox do this? All the legacy Firefox browsers work fine on our site. It was just with the last release it somehow seems to think we have one and force redirects. And to clarify, it isn't just on one computer. All members who have the new Firefox have this issue. Thank you for any assistance! It is greatly appreciated!

version 94.0.2 (64-bit) message: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I can not see any of my bookmarks and I can not bookmark any page. I have: Shut down Firefox and restarted: no help uninstalled, deleted folders, and reinstalled: no help Import bookmarks from another browser: no help. That doesn't work either

What "security software" is the message talking about?

Hope you can help, because I don't want to go to another browser.

In the last few days, I started having multiple web sites blocked with "SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE". They work fine with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, and I trust them. One example is http://www.wumb.org, a public radio station. I found nothing in Firefox Help to bypass this security flag and go to the page.

If there is a work-around, please make it show up when searching for SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE in Firefox Help. If there is no work-around, please add one. Otherwise, Firefox, my favorite browser, will quickly get a bad reputation.

Thanks,

I expect that each page / tab in firefox is placed in its own thread.

However, I experience that when one page gets stuck .. javascript is caught in a wait loop .. that this affects other pages.

Is there something in FireFox that I can change to insure that each page is in it's own thread, and doesn't affect another page's performance?

Ésta, es una sugerencia de implementación de funciones para el Firefox Daylight.

This is a feature implementation suggestion for Firefox Daylight.

Estoy convencido de que sería un gran avance el poder contar con una función automática activable/desactivable que lograra un "modo oscuro" durante la visita de cualquier página web.

I am convinced that it would be a great advance to have an automatic activated/deactivated function that achieves a "dark mode" during the visit of any web page.

Se trataría de una función similar a la que ya disponen algunos otros grandes Buscadores como, por ejemplo, pueda ser Opera...

It would be a function similar to that already available to some other large Search Engines, such as Opera...

De esta manera, Firefox también se sumaría a la corriente por la defensa de la salud visual al utilizar Internet.

In this way, Firefox would also join the trend for the defense of visual health when using the Internet.

Un guiño para cualquier otro ser humano inteligente: ésta misma página de Firefox para la escritura de mensajes, está de blanco riguroso y cegador. Y no es que lo blanco y brillante sea algo malo, es que hablamos de pantallas cargadas de luminosidad que agotan nuestra vista. "Negro sobre blanco" para describir la posibilidad de leer un texto sobre papel físico (un libro) es una cosa. "Negro sobre blanco" para captar la lectura de la imagen proyectada por una pantalla electrónica es otra cosa muy diferente. A mi juicio, demasiado diferente.

A nod to any other intelligent human being: this very Firefox page for writing messages, is in stark and blinding white. And it is not that white and bright is a bad thing, it is that we are talking about screens loaded with luminosity that exhaust our eyesight. "Black on white" to describe the ability to read a text on physical paper (a book) is one thing. "Black on white" to capture the reading of the image projected by an electronic screen is quite another thing. In my opinion, too different.

Es por esta razón por la que ruego que sean informados los ingenieros de Firefox sobre esta petición.

It is for this reason that I ask that Firefox engineers be informed about this request.

Ok, as it says above, Firefox is randomly shutting itself off, as if you were 'Exit'-ing. I have followed all the aspects of the troubleshooting webpage - so far, when in Troubleshooting Mode, it stays up. I have turned all add-ons, extensions, hardware acceleration...before I went to Troubleshooting Mode...to try and isolate what might be causing it - no luck. I can have as few as 4 tabs open or as much as 10-it still turns off. Now, this does not happen each and every day, but it's close. The last crash report sent in was dated November 11, 4 in total. I have the crash report ID numbers if needed. I can't create the scenario; it's acting as if I am closing the browser, which I am not. This has me lost and frustrated.

I recently started having a problem composing an email message when using Windows Live Mail and wondered if anyone has experienced the same issue. Another person on the Microsoft Help Forum reported the same issue, also using Firefox. The issue is that while composing an email, the window suddenly jumps back to the Inbox. It is very intermittent so a little difficult to test out with other browsers I hate using. Another issue which does seem to be only happening with Firefox is inability to open attachments on the first try.

The app on my phone works fine. If I continue to try logging in on my computer to see if it works yet Instagram locks my account until I enter a password they send my email. My eyes aren't great and I need to view Instagram on my computer monitor. Please help. How do I fix this?

In the most recent FireFox updates (94), the New Tab page seems to have replaced my recent site Shortcuts graphics. Whereas this screen was previously displaying miniature images of the various web pages, they are now displaying only the web site favicon.

While I understand that this eliminates a potential security hole, my shortcut list contains a number of commonly-used pages from my own web site -- and now every single one of them has the same fav icon, instead of the mini thumbnail of the actual page. This makes it difficult and darn-near impossible to discern between the various icons, especially since every one has the exact same text -- the START of the URL (including the web site name), and not the END of the URL, which would actually allow me to know which icon is for which page.

I have already disabled the "newnewtabexperience" config option (which fixed this in the past), but it doesn't appear to be working any more. Is there a newnewnewnewnewtabexperience setting that I should look for?

I am finding a web site that I have used for many years is suddenly not working as the login will not work. I have contacted the compmany whose website i use and they have taken me through steps that point to an issue with firefox. (I can get acces to the site with MS Edge). If firefox thinks there si a security issue I cannor find how to make teh site an exception.

I also see that firefox thinks my browser preferences are being managed by my organisation. In fact I am my organisation and dont recall having set up a policy for my company

Hi there, for sometime (4 months), Firefox dosen't load Facebook properly , it's just stop loading images, videos , or emoji things on Facebook, refresh dosen't work either, what is working is a restart of the browser.

Deleting cookies and cache, history, reinstalling the Browser, and such, only fix the problem temporary , like 1-2 days without issues, then the loading problem is appearing again, it's usually occuring in the first 5-10 minutes , almost every time.

The issue is definetively from Firefox, because my other browser load Facebook without problems. I would like to get an answer though, is this issue fixed in the future releases or i'm doomed with this problem from now on, and i will have to use an separate browser for Facebook.
