Hello Everyone, I now have TWO computers that automatically updated Firefox ESR from 68.12.0 to 78.3.0. I now cannot logon to a Networkwork Solutions webmail account that I have used for years. The message says to change my settings to allow cookies. Thinking that the update may have changed a security cookie setting, I have tried multiple configurations. The standard Firefox settings have worked fine for years until the update. So far I can still access the account with both Opera and Brave, I have not yet tried Chrome. What has changed? Thanks.

Whenever I search for something with minimum words, it tires to direct me to some HTTP site (look at the screenshot) but if I type something longer than that, with three words for example, then it gives up on the HTTP thing and just shows me what my search engine can find.

I refreshed Firefox, now Lastpass and Ghostery don't show up in my toolbar or work anymore (Mac OS 10.9.5). I removed the Lastpass extension, then reinstalled to no avail. Oddly, Adblock Plus is in my toolbar and works fine. Attached photo shows Adblock, but no Lastpass or Ghostery icons in my toolbar.

If you lower mtu to 400 when using Firefox The problem occurs in the latest version 78.3esr.

The site doesn't open properly You can reconnect countless times over and over again, The page does not open.

This issue did not occur in the 68.12esr version.

There was no problem in the lower version even in the non-esr version. When the version was upgraded, the symptoms appeared. I've been using 68.12esr.

I can not speak English well.

Korea is a country that blocks sites using https. Adjusting mtu is a necessary measure for Koreans.

Over the last few weeks Firefox is not printing statements correctly from my online bank. Other browsers e.g. Safari, Microsoft Edge are working fine. I have Firefox on a MacBookPro (El Capitan) and a PC (Windows 10) and both have exactly the same problem. The image is far too large for the page and much text is lost. Switching to landscape doesn't help. It appears that something has changed in Firefox recently which is causing this. Thanks

If extension gather some private data about my activity, like for example https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clipboardhelper/ which gather my clipboard history.

"This add-on needs to:

   Get data from the clipboard
   Input data to the clipboard
   Store unlimited amount of client-side data
   Access your data for all websites"

How to assess the resulting privacy risks?

1. Isn't there insignificant chance these data leak out thru other extensions? For example on Andorid (i am on Windows) i think that i heard that the apps has some common storage and it was/is possible one app read data of other app. Maybe it is not true and likely does not apply on Firefox on Windows.

2. or this extension send my data out to author or such? Btw. is there(why not) setting which would by default disallow extension to send data it gathered away via internet? And user would have to allow it on prompt.

The subject line says it all. Firefox version 80.0.1 (64-bit) running on Ubuntu.

The Preferences / Startup / Restore previous session is ticked. Deleting sessionstore files (as per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1185765) doesn't fix this. There are no Restore Previous Session item available anywhere (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1261571)

This appears to have happened only since the latest update. I typically work with 20-30 opened tabs at a time, so this is very annoying, and it it wasn't for the Session History Scrounger for Firefox I'd be totally screwed. (The latest Firefox version also runs cripplingly slow at times, often consuming 100% of CPU according to 'top'.)

I need to make the Tabs and Bookmarks Toolbar taller, and increase font size and embolden the font in these for someone with very poor vision. I am using a 32" monitor with large font, and 150% on Display scaling, but still need these areas larger and with more prominent font for easy visibility.

The version of Firefox is 78, and all the options I have seen do not work on this version. Does the Mozilla organization not care about assistance for people who need extra assistance?

Hi everyone, i have a website where i have to delete a certain element in order for the website to display correctly. I am doing this by right-clicking on the element, selecting "Inspect Element" and then i simply click delete node and close the object browser. Since i visit that website regularly i wonder if there is any way to make the object browser to remember that i want that element to be deleted on every visit to this website? Or do i need an Addon for that?

I love the AutoFill feature, with some exceptions. And I am hoping someone can offer a solution, even if it is to tell me I am doing it wrong.

It seems like others would have a similar problem, and it is sort of difficult to explain, although I'd think there would be a simple solution. Anyway, let me try to explain...

When I use the autofill option, it is usually while placing an order, or filling out my account details for whatever shopping site, or gaming profile, etc. But I have multiple addresses I need to consider when I am shopping, and need to send the order to one or the other, instead of my regular address. Like placing an order that I want sent to my mother's address.

As anyone knows, when you change something, like the address, state, zip or phone number, you end up with several autofill entries. Like this...

First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but I can't see it in the pop-up) First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but my work address, which I also don't see) First Name, Last NAME First Name, Last Name FIRST NAME, Last Name First Name, Last Name

These pop up, all valid options, the next time you start filling out a form. Which is great, because ONE of them is the one you would like to use, but there is no way to see WHICH one points to the one you need. The first one is my normal address, phone, etc, but the autofill pop up doesn't show you anything other than the name, the second is my work, but I can't see that it is... only the name. The third might be my mom's address, but again, I have no idea because only my name is shown...etc etc etc.

Is there a better autofill plugin out there, one that lets you label them? Or some way to show more than just the name? Just showing me the same name 12 times, without any way to know what the right one to use is, kinda makes the autofill feature useless for me. If I only had one phone, or one address, etc, the feature would work great. But since I have about a dozen addresses I routinely use, each with their own unique state or zipcode, or phone number, has rendered autofill useless unless I only need the common "top" one.

I hope I've made it clear what the problem is. And no, using a unique firefox profile for each is not the answer. I'd have to log out/off firefox and switch profiles several times in one shopping or gaming session, which would only make the solution highly annoying.

It would be nice to find a plugin, or any other solution, that would let me label, or differentiate each from the other when the autofill pop-up gives me the option to fill the form.

Like... Home - First Name, Last Name Work - First Name, Last Name Mom's - First Name, Last Name Gary's - First Name, Last Name

Anyone have a solution, or feel my pain? Or am I simply doing it wrong?

ANY help is greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!
