I'm getting popup notifications from customer-service25.higherincomejobs.com and jobsflag.com, even though I've gone to those sites and unsubscribed. Is this a virus? Is there a way to get the popups to stop?

I'm attaching a screenshot showing one of the notifications in the lower left corner of my screen.

Any help would be appreciated.

A few days ago I was downloading a ZIP file and was warned that "This file contains a virus or malware". Fine, thank you for telling me but now how do I seeing the same warning every time I start Firefox? The file in question does not exist on my computer so far as I can tell and I did a thorough search through 3.5tB of storage on the machine to make sure. How do I stop this warning?

Using Firefox version 102:

Open console tools and navigate to Network tab Right click on a POST request "Edit and Resend" is no longer an option? There is still the resend option Clicking resend allows you to edit the request, but unfortunately the "Content-Length" attribute is not automatically updated like it was with edit and resend, so all requests fail after being edited. This is because the Content-Length header indicates the size of the message body, in bytes, sent to the recipient. When you add or removes bytes in a JSON request for example, it doesn't get updated. The attribute can also not be manually set. How can I use version 102 to edit and resend requests the same way I used to?

Thank you.

First time ever. Tested other browsers, sound works fine. Changed no settings when it suddenly went silent. Refreshed. Uninstalled/reinstalled. Nada/nothing. So to not feel as if I've lost my hearing, I won't be using Firefox until there's a fix on their end, already tried everything suggested in troubleshooting and refreshed. It's just not playing well with Win11.

I recently installed a theme that I really like, but the search bar by default is a blinding white color and it contrasts heavily with the dark blue colors in the theme I picked.

Is there a way for me to edit the background color and text color of the search bar to be a different color? I've tried looking at different solutions and most of them make reference to userchrome or something else I have absolutely no idea how to work. Can someone explain to me, in the most simple and hard to get wrong terms as humanly possible, how to change the background and text color in the search bar? Is this something I edit the theme itself for? How do I do that?

Thanks in advance. Attached image shows the part of the browser I'm talking about if it somehow wasn't clear enough. I'd like to turn the white color into, say, dark blue or gray, and change the text color to a light blue or white.

Firefox prefers IPv4 address in a dual-stack environment

Hi,

I'm using IPv4 as well as IPv6 addresses in my home network. But Firefox uses always the IPv4 connection when I open a website. When I open the same website in MS Edge, the IPv6 connection is used.

I've captured the network traffic during opening a website in Firefox, which is reachable over IPv4 and IPv6. First I see two DNS queries (A and AAAA) for the domain name. Both responses containing the correct IP address, and they arrive nearly at the same time at the client. Next I can see the TCP handshake. But it's send between the IPv4 address only. No IPv6 connection was attempted.

When I run the IPv6 test at https://test-ipv6.com, the IPv6 resuls are nearly fine. Only the web browser test says "Your browser has real working IPv6 address - but is avoiding using it."

When I run the same test in MS Edge, all tests are fine.

So it seems that this is not a OS or network issue. It affects Firefox only.

What I've already tried:

  • Disabled all extensions
  • Created a new profile
  • Used the IPv6 address of the website instead of the FQDN -> Works fine.
  • Checked DNS cache of Firefox (about:networking). It contains the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of the requested websites

I guess that Firefox prefers the A record for some reason. But I've no idea why. Has anybody an idea what could causing this?

Thanks.

Recently I did a full scan with Microsoft defender and it detected a file in the “firefox/profiles../cache2/entries” as a trojan:PowerShell/Meterpreter.A (And also something related to gzip I’m sorry that I didn’t take a screenshot of the message but I completely freaked out and deleted it immediately after scanning with the other AVs). I installed malwarebytes and Avast and did a full scan they returned with a no malware has been detected. In the moment I panicked and immediately deleted the file (I should’ve uploaded to virustotal to see its behavior and what it can do and change to my PC if it is indeed malicious). Then I did a full rescan using Microsoft defender and it returned with a 0 threats found. However, I only went to a couple of websites recently which as far as I know are safe such as msi, cpuid, I don’t go to shady websites plus I have ublock origins as an Adblock. My question is as follows how much percentage wise this Trojan is a false positive and if it is a virus how much damage it did (the thing that got me freaked out is that it’s a meterpreter)

Since the last update to Firefox I have not been able to print using the system dialog. Only the new Firefox print screen comes up. How can I return to system printing dialog?

Also the ability to set print quality in the Firefox print screen does not exist. I can do copies, black or color, duplex printing, etc but not set the print quality like draft, text, photo, etc.

I also have many forms I've setup for printing and I can't access these.

Thanks, Pat

I've worked with Firefox for several years, and had it opening maximized. I recently manually resized the Firefox window to facilitate some work in which I needed some other windows visible. However, now I can't get Firefox to open maximized. Instead, it opens a window going from the left edge of my screen (see the first image below) about a third of the width of the monitor, and it is showing the double box icon in the upper right corner indicating that the computer "thinks" it is in full screen. If I click that double box, the window immediately shifts to the right edge of the screen, occupying a space about a third of the monitor from the right edge, and shows a single box in the upper right corner of the window. If I click that single box, the window finally does expand to full screen, showing a double box in the upper right corner. I've tried all the manipulations I've seen concerning starting screen size (such as going to the shortcut icon properties and indicating the that the program should start "maximized") but I'm still getting this same behavior. Any thoughts? (I'm running Windows 11, with the latest version of Firefox.)

I could'nt play Netflix or Amazon videos on my Firefox browser, I have an old MacBook pro OS 10.9.5 (it's the last operating system I can use.. I have photoshop 6 and it won't work on any further OSs) I went to update Firefox, was not sure what version it was. and my computer asked" replace current version of Firefox with New" , I said yes, it did.. and then after I downloaded it, I noticed there was a circle with a slash going thru it on Firefox Icon, when I tried to open new firefox , it bascically said will not work with this OS. I could not go back and lost firefox alltogher, which also had my prefernces and autofill passwords etc. I went to Mozilla site to see if I could find an older version of firefox.. This is what I found : Firefox version 78 was the last supported Firefox version for Mac users of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, OS X 10.10 Yosemite and OS X 10.11 El Capitan. These users were moved to the Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) channel by an application update.

I downloaded it and it said It will not work on my OS, So, How can I basically get the same firefox I had or whatever the last version that works on my computer..and best case senario save my prefernces and passwords, which maybe might have been saved somehow when I tried to change in the begining .. thanks so much for your help.
