How to make Firefox accept a third-party cookie used for authentication by a Java web application?

Hi,

I am a developer currently working on an open-source solution called GeoNetwork (https://github.com/geonetwork/core-geonetwork/). This application has a Java backend that uses a JSESSIONID cookie to track user sessions. One instance of the application can be accessed anonymously here: https://sextant.ifremer.fr/Donnees/Catalogue

The session cookie is set on the first request to the backend with the following parameters:

Domain: "sextant.ifremer.fr" expirationDate: "Session" HostOnly: true HttpOnly: true SameSite: "None" Secure: true

This application theoretically allows login in from a different origin. For example from https://www.milieumarinfrance.fr/Acces-aux-donnees/Catalogue, which under the hood points to the same backend. We noticed recently that when accessing the application from a different origin in Firefox, the network requests aimed at the "sextant.ifremer.fr" host *do not carry any existing session cookie*, thus rendering authenticated access impossible.

The existing session cookie is correctly used when I add an "allow" exception for the sextant.ifremer.fr origin in the cookies settings of Firefox (see attached screenshot in French). So I figure that it's Firefox that decides not to use any existing cookie when on this origin.

Is there any way to indicate to Firefox that this cookie is legitimate and that it is needed for essential functionalities, without relying on the user allowing the cookie explicitly?

Thanks a lot in advance!

I am not a sophisticated computer user and I have some cognitive problems due to age and illness so please be as simplistic as possible with any response. I was trying out new features and now have the private browsing icon on the bottom bar on my screen. The color purple triggers strong anxiety for me so I just want to get that off my screen. I won't be using private browsing so I want to remove it. I tried to drag it to the recycle bin but couldn't get rid of it that way. Please help me remove that icon from ever being on my screen. Thank you.

How to force Firefox stop autoplaying videos when I'm switching to the i.e. new YouTube tab, but in the same time do not pause a next video on YouTube playlist. Some time ago it worked well, but now if I set Block Audio or\and Video in settings, I have to manually click Play, and with Allow Audio and Video chosen it starts playing video immediately after I click on another tab.

The tool tip colour for the Downloads is white text over a yellow background - it's practically impossible to read. Perhaps this is an error with the release, but if not, can this extreme lack of textual contrast be changed? I need dark / black text on light backgrounds.

I am using windows 10 64. Youtube videos don't play on the latest version of firefox, but do with microsoft edge. The spinning loading circle icon appears but video playback just doesn't work on any video at all, not even youtube shorts. This seems to be a problem only with firefox version 106.0.1 and 106.0.2 on my system. I downgraded to firefox version 105.0.3 and had no issue with youtube playback.

Hello Mozilla Community,

Mac has keyboard text replacements where a text input entry can automatically output a word or phrase.

i.e. When I type "ty", it will automatically output "thank you".

I am aware of previous queries and solutions in the form of extensions or add-ons. However, this is not reasonable if there are dozens of these text replacements already inputted in to Mac OS.

It is worth noting that this is not an issue in Google Chrome...

Thank you in advance! (tyia) ; )

bookmarks text white on white

Firefox updated to 106.0.2 (64-bit). When I click the sidebar icon, my bookmarks appear on the browser's left side as expected. However the text is not visible. If I hover my mouse over an icon is the list for a bookmark, the link appears. Also not all the bookmark icons appear. There are gaps between bookmarks on the list. Again, I have to hover my mouse over those gaps for bookmark info to appear. How do I make my bookmark list readable/usable again?

Is there any way to make firefox respect default communication and playback devices? As it stands right now, if I wanna chat with friends on facebook then I have to go through Windows and force firefox to output audio to my headset, which means that if I wanna watch a video as well, the audio from that no longer comes from my sound system, but my headset instead. When seraching for 'audio,' 'sound,' or 'playback' in the settings (after going through them all manually) I can't seem to change that. Chrome did it just fine..

Synced tabs disappear after logging into two different devices

So I had a laptop that had to go under repair (device A), so had to use a different computer (device B). I sign into Firefox, and I can see the synced tabs from device A. For various reasons, the very next day I had to transfer to another computer (device C), so I logout of device B, and login into Firefox in device C. The synced tabs are no longer visible, even though in my account it says device A is still connected to the sync.

Bookmarks and such still load up just fine, I just can't see the device A synced tabs at all. Any clue why this is happening?

Also, is it normal that my email is still showing on the device B menu? Even though it says I logged out successfully, and device B is not showing in sync anymore, in the actual computer it's still showing on the menu above the "new tab" option. How do I remove my email from showing in that particular browse? Uninstall the program entirely?

Why does clicking on the first drop-down option in the URL bar always take me to a Google Search?

Please see the video too: https://imgur.com/a/DvXaYFu

1) Open Firefox 106.0.2 or higher (I'm on Windows 11) 2) Click anywhere on the URL bar and type the first letter of the website you want to visit. i.e. Youtube.com (Y) 3) Manually click on the link (first drop-down option) from the URL bar

The video shows me clicking on the first drop-down option in the URL bar. But clicking on it doesn't take me to Youtube.com, it takes me to a Google search for the term "y" instead.

Previously Firefox would immediately highlight the first URL drop-down option upon me typing in a single letter (i.e. y would immediately select the first option--Youtube, a site I frequently visit) and then all I'd have to do is press enter to go to Youtube.com

Now since Firefox won't auto-select the first option in the URL drop-down I have to manually select it, which is why I run into this issue. This almost always happens on a blank tab.

Why is Firefox doing this? Why won't manually clicking on the first drop-down for Youtube.com take me to the website?

I forgot my "primary password" so I reset my password twice today. However, the browser pop up window keeps asking me for my "primary password" and this pop up window will not accept the new passwords. I also deleted Firefox from my computer and re-downloaded it, but this did not help. I attached a picture of this pop up window that has not updated even after I reset my password. I also cannot log out and log back into my firefox account in my browser without entering this password.

Is there anything else I can do? I understand that my data will be lost when I reset the primary password.

Hello. Why does the safe search option when I search for something repeatedly change from where I set it, at "off," to "moderate?" It's very annoying to have to keep changing it back to off. Does it change to moderate on its own when I clear the cache? If so, why is there not a setting in preferences so it's permanently set to whatever I want it to be until I change it, cache clearing or not?

My original primary email is no longer functional, it was an ATT account compromised in a yahoo.com data breech some years ago. I was no longer an ATT customer at the time, so it would not let me log in to change my password. Now I want to remove it from firefox, and to do that I have to provide a confirmation code sent to that dead email account. Is there some other way to remove it and switch a current email address to my primary email?
