Site keeps detecting ad blocker after all blocker extensions removed and Enhanced Protection turned off

I am using Firefox 81.0.

Specifically, I am trying to "Enable earning" on the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards shopping site -- https://rapidrewardsshopping.southwest.com/. I have uninstalled all ad blockers and trackers (AdBlocker Plus, Ghostery, Duck Duck Go, etc.) and turned off Firefox Enhanced Tracking Protection for the site. And still I get this warning at the top of the page:

"AdBlock, uBlock, AdBlockPlus or another ad blocker or Firefox Tracking Protection may be preventing you from earning points on your shopping. "

Does anyone know what is going on?

I am running Kaspersky Total Security. Could that be the culprit? What troubleshooting can I do to find the root cause of the Southwest site detecting an "ad blocker of Firefox Tracking Protection"?

Open Link In New Tab - PDF Files

Hi, PDF File handling has recently changed - For the worse for me and it's become really frustrating.

When I right click a PDF file link and select "open link in new tab", why does Firefox then ask me how I want to treat the file? I just asked it to open the file in a new tab, so it should be obvious what I want to do - asking again is illogical.

Not only that, before the file handling dialog box, it opens a new tab next to the tab I'm in and then closes it when the dialog box appears - When I select the unnecessary "open in Firefox" (I just asked it to open in a new tab), it now creates a new tab at the END of my tabs and steals focus.

I also get the file handling dialog box when I ask to "save link as", when logically I should just get the save location dialog box.

How do I get the old behaviour back?

Thanks folks

I am unable to display my username when trying to log into 'Udemy' website. Under Logins & Passwords my Username and Password is saved for this site. When I click login button, the username appears momentarily and then disappears from the login screen. I have to manually type the username each time. However, the password is retained and no issues there.

Could not find any help articles on this particular problem. Tried unclicking hardware acceleration. Still no change.

Other websites appear to function properly except 'udemy'. Is this due to settings in FireFox or something not right with 'udemy' website?

Since version 80.x Firefox Portable is not able to display some atlassain.net pages, e.g. login page to https://teleconnect.atlassian.net (no public page, but login screen should appear). It regards to newer pages of atlassain.net, older pages seem to work correctly. The Firefox 80.x installed version (Win10) -not the portable one- does not have this problem.

Even though Firefox 80 and 81 release notes doesn't say anything, many websites stated that hardware acceleration on Linux X11 was introduced in Firefox 80, but disabled by default, while it was enabled by default in Firefox 81.

This is what I see in my about:config and, honestly, it's definitely unclear (using Firefox 81, of course):

HW_COMPOSITING available by default / blocked by env: Acceleration blocked by platform OPENGL_COMPOSITING unavailable by default: Hardware compositing is disabled WEBRENDER opt-in by default: WebRender is an opt-in feature WEBRENDER_QUALIFIED available by default / denied by env: Not on allowlist WEBRENDER_COMPOSITOR disabled by default: Disabled by default WEBRENDER_ANGLE opt-in by default: WebRender ANGLE is an opt-in feature WEBRENDER_DCOMP_PRESENT opt-in by default: WebRender DirectComposition is an opt-in feature OMTP available by default WEBGPU disabled by default: Disabled by default / blocked by runtime: WebGPU can only be enabled in nightly

What should I understand from this? Sounds like it's all DISABLED on my system (Linux Mint 18.3, based on Ubuntu 16.04, Intel Haswell integrated GPU). Why!?

Also, what is the right way to enable some hardware acceleration now? OpenGL, WebRender, FFMPEG/VAAPI... it's a real mess. Until some versions ago, I simply used layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true and this enabled OpenGL hardware compositing. But what is the right way to do it now?

Why can't Firefox developers simply add an option in Preferences to enable or disable hardware acceleration!? The only current option "use hardware acceleration when available" doesn't mean anything. I have been using OpenGL hardware compositing with layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true for years with no issues at all, yet Firefox always decided that I should not use any kind of hardware acceleration on my system... Quite disappointing.

With 'open tabs in background' enabled, links which are set to open apps do not open correctly--particularly Zoom meeting links, Discord join links, and any other chat or media application. They open fine 'usually' when the link loads in the foreground.

This makes me unable to open some links or have to hack a bit such as quickly tapping the tab when it opens or removing the "#success" at the end of zoom links. This does not always work.

I have tried every suggestion for blocking videos from autoplaying. I have tried Firefox's suggestions, and everything I found on the web, and nothing works. Autoplay happens every time on Fox. Why can't Mozilla get me a straight answer. I cannot be the only person in the world using Firefox, latest version, who has this problem. And, by the way, the way it seems to work is if you leave the video screen visible it does not Autoplay, but as soon as you scroll down to read the article, and thus the video image scrolls up and off the screen, then it starts to play. This isn't just some fluke and I suspect there is some code in the page HTML that does this. So, how the hell do I get it to stop?

Hi all,

Currently on the latest beta on macOS Big Sur v11 beta (20A5364e).

Crashing of tabs has at least been resolved since previous versions but I am having an endless usability issue. I can have 2-5+ tabs open and clicking on the tab itself appears dead/unresponsive. Clicking a few more times (in different areas of the tab) or selecting another tab then switching back results in the tab being selected/usable/active again.

I am unable to find any common way to replicate this or reason for it - the sites in the tabs are always very much different. It's not the web site that becomes unresponsive as even when opening multiple 'new' tabs, the same issue can occur without even loading a site.

Detailed version info included.
