Preamble: for most of the day I have Firefox open with several tabs. For a specific project I want Firefox open with one tab showing a specific webpage. At the same time I don't want to delete the existing tabs in the existing instance of Firefox - I want to keep them running in the background. Question: how do I create a desktop shortcut which opens a new single instance of Firefox with a single tab showing a specific URL ?

I use my Firefox browser to create my business newsletter. Once I have published the completed newsletter on Firefox, I copy the URL and paste it into my mailing service (Mailchimp). I have been doing this successfully for at least a decade. Recently, however, I have been unsuccessful, and Mailchimp tells me that it must be a problem with the Firefox URL.

Please help me. This is an important part of my business marketing.

I got a new computer so I created an acct and set all my open tabs and history to sync. It wasn't intuitive to my not techie brain, but found out how to open all the tabs on the new computer. However, they don't open in the same order (makes it almost useless when you have a lot of tabs), and the tabs don't have their associated history.

Is there some way to have Firefox open tabs and history in the same state on the new device?

I have a need to use regular browser (not kiosk), but disable the "open downloads folder" once a file has been downloaded. This is opening a file manager (thunar or alike) which then allows the user to browse the filesystem and open a terminal emulator from /usr/bin.

Using the policies, I am able to prompt for downloads, or select a download location, however I have been unable to completely stop the user from opening the download folder which opens a file browser.

Is there any way I can select policies or profile options for disabling the option for opening download folder?

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

Hello to all.

I have a wired problem with the loading of the same local development website in Firefox and Firefox private window browsing, the same local development website is loaded very slow in private window browsing.

I have uninstalled Firefox completely and started with fresh install without any add-ons or themes, all the things are default.

Please check out this screen capture with the problem https://imgur.com/a/cigSamd

Can this be just a rendering issue as the network metrics are the same?

Thank you

Hello,

In the last week, I have noticed an error message on a site that I usually log onto, and am unable to do so which looks like this: Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.plus.net. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem. I have contacted the web site owners, and they have said it is my browser as the site is working correctly.

The second issue is that I am able to log onto my gumtree homepage, but unable to access my account due to the following: I have checked my Firefox browser and it is running the latest version 105.0.1 I have noted that on the bottom left of the page when trying to access my messages or manage my ads the following is happening but times out after 15 seconds: Unable to perform tls handshake to sa.gumtree

Gumtree have said this is a browser issue, so that is why I am contacting you for assistance.

I look forward to hearing from you, at your earliest convenience.

Best regards, Arvin Kumar

Been using Firefox for some years with no probs, and I view YouTube videos constantly. But recently been getting a left to right twitch on the YouTube screen, and it seem after I've viewed a video --- very weird! Don't get the same problem with Chrome, but I'd rather continue using Firefox. Can I fix this?

I noticed on your introduction to this screen you state:- "Be descriptive. Saying “playing video on YouTube is always choppy” will help us understand the issue..." Do I have the same problem?

Thanks

Hello, I'm using a Synology NAS (DS220+) installed on my local network, behind my internet box). This NAS can be accessed both from the local network (https://192.168.1.nn:ppppp) and remotely across Internet (https://subdomain.domain:yyyyy). With Firefox I can access my NAS locally but not remotely. While this works fine with Chrome or Edge.

As my issue looks like another one on your support site ("Page won't load in Firefox, but works fine in any other browser", opened 7/1/21, 3:39AM), I applied part of the proposed solution: run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, cleared history, cookies, cache; did a refresh; removed then reinstalled Firefox, created a brand new profile. Without success.

Would you please have some ideas to help me? Thanks and regards Matteo
