Hi,

I am a student investigating multiple ways for crash report prioritization. I am using Firefox Mozilla for data collection. While looking into the crash reports, I am unsure about what does "frame count" mean. And I also looked into the reference website (https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/documentation/datadictionary/), and did not find it. I am wondering if there is any other reference document I can look into? Thank you so much!

Hi there!  :)

I am having many, many problems with Access Denied messages when going to AT&T, Vitacost, Lowes, and several others. If I turn off my VPN and use the Private window, it works. If I do not, I am completely locked out of all my accounts. I've tried all the fixes that Firefox provides, like wiping out the history from that site and so on. I am not going to turn off my VPN to function online as it endangers my personally identifiable information, which is why I use only Firefox. Most companies when I call them tell me to use Chrome or Edge as they work better, but I despise Microsoft and the predatory behavior, so I do not and will not use them. I deleted Chrome altogether as it was preloaded on my laptop. I want to use Firefox, but I keep having more and more problems. Please help?

User Identification Request (Client Certificate) Is Not Remembered

Hello,

I use several websites that utilize mutual TLS authentication, also known as client certificate authentication. As a developer behind some of these websites, we will frequently launch and relaunch some of these sites to test different changes, so we don't usually bother with getting a properly signed certificate for the site. Developers must add a security exception for accessing the sites, which then prompt for user authentication using client certificates.

The problem I am encountering is that the "Remember this decision" checkbox on the "User Identification Request" does not seem to be working properly. There is one site which makes several connections when the page is first loaded and we have to click "Ok" on the "User Identification Request" about 10 times before the page fully loads. Other sites will randomly prompt for the request again when fetching data. The hostname and port do not change between requests.

I've tried replicating this behavior with a basic Apache httpd server setup with client authentication, but it doesn't seem to happen for the basic site. If this is happening due to a server configuration issue, I would like to know what it is that is causing it so that I can fix it. When using Chrome, this behavior does not happen.

Thank you!

There should be a guide by now or easy settings built into the browser to change these settings.

I'm having trouble with websites that think I'm a Bot, because they are detecting multiple operating systems/ OS, due to my settings and privacy extensions.

Is there anything in About:Config that I can change to set my OS to Windows??

Common methods for websites detecting someone's OS is by using Javascript, User Agent, and TCP/IP fingerprinting.

How do I fake the Javascript test? There's extensions that block Scripts but that leaves people unable to use websites, is there any command I can put in and set as default?

User Agent test - There's a few extensions that will work to change this, though if I can change this through About:config or other settings I would like to know.

The TCP/IP protocol controls how data is sent between computers and how the sender and receiving computers are identified. Mostly this is done identically by every computer, but some small parameters are implemented differently by different operating systems, creating a ‘fingerprint’.

I'm told this is very difficult to fake, but has a larger error rate anyway.

I've been using Firefox for awhile but just in recent days I've noticed that logging in to selected websites takes much longer or fails. For example, it takes me 3 minutes to login to Fidelity. During the 3 minutes, I see the message "Performing TLS handshake..." being displayed in the lower left hand corner of my screen. I am running Windows 11 with the latest version of Firefox (109.0.1). This also happens when logging to United Health Care websites. The same problem does not occur with Microsoft Edge.

Any insight to this problem is appreciated. Thank you.

I have a sandbox iframe which is hosted by various websites. Lets assume that this iframe is loaded like this: <script src="https://example.com/wie.js"></script> I have already added 'allow-scripts allow-forms allow-modals allow-same-origin allow-popups allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox allow-storage-access-by-user-activation' at sandbox. I also use document.requestStorageAccess() from inside the iframe and I set event listeners for the storage like this:

window.addEventListener('storage', onStorageFunc, false);. From the iframe a popup window is presented when user clicks a specific button and the popup opens at lets say at this url "https://paypal.com". After user navigation on popup, paypal at the end of the flow redirects user to this url "https://example.com/success". At this point when user is navigated to /success I add some data to local storage which I expect to trigger the storage event listener and the onStorageFunc to run. This doesn't happen, while in other browsers it works as expected.

Since both popup and iframe are under the same url (https://example.com) and I have used requestStorageAccess, I would expect this to work normally. Can you please help me to find out what is going wrong here? In the past I had the same problem but it was fixed when I added 'requestStorageAccess' and 'allow-storage-access-by-user-activation'. Now I can see it happening again.

Hello, Recently I have noticed that facebook messenger doesn't work in my firefox, after some research I did find that entire websocket (and wss) doesn't work in my firefox. I am using Mozilla Firefox version 109.0.1, one thing that temporarily fix the issues is to delete cert9.db from profile folder. Starting in safe mode doesn't fix the issue, disabling all extensions neither work. The error I get in dev tools/console is 406 code or 400. In different browser everything works fine, but I want to stay with "fox" as long as I can.

2FA login on sites works with Chromium but NOT WITH Firefox (Linux)

Present setup:

Does NOT work firefox 102.7.0esr on debian 11.6 bullseye 5.10.162-1 (x86-64) firefox 110.0 on Ubuntu MATE 22.04 LTS 5.15.0-58 (x86-64)

Works chromium 109.0.5414.119 on debian 11.6 bullseye 5.10.162-1 (x86-64)

I am able to register and authenticate with security devices Yubikey NEO (without FIDO2) and Yubikey 5 NFC (FIDO2 compliant) on several sites (eg. pypi, google..) using Chrome or Chromium but now not with Firefox at all. It has not worked for at least the last few updates. Changing settings in about:config or plugging/unplugging keys, stopping every Firefox plugin etc. don't help. Neither does a fresh Firefox install without any super-security-settings.

Testing sites like Yubico's own or Okta's works fine using Chromium but not Firefox.

From what I can see this is not especially related to FIDO2 (Webauthn). pypi seems to use U2F which should work just fine with Firefox since way back.

I haven't tested Firefox for Windows but Chrome browser for Windows 10 works fine (which I tested first when Firefox didn't cut the mustard), I therefore expect it to work also on Chrome browser for Linux. Just to check if this was related to a debian bullseye package, I tested it on Ubuntu MATE too, which didn't do the trick. Haven't done any more testing than that on MATE.

This seems like a strictly firefox problem. -What to do?

Yours, Kaare

For example, in the last month or so, when I open a link, it doesn't open for a long time or not at all, most times when I press the link again it might open. Google maps stopped working at all. I created a Google doc and when I tried sharing it I got a message that it can't be done at this time, I opened it in Chrome and it worked.

A friend (who knows even less about technology than me) has an old Dell Inspiron 1501 which has been running Linux Mint 18 Xfce, which is now unsupported. I'm beginning to regret it but just to keep it going for a couple of years I offered to update to Mint 20 Xfce, which is the last version listing 1 Gb as the minimum Ram (everything later or other version are 2 Gb or more), which is the most that system can use. Once the wifi was eventually working (old b43 broadcom driver) most things went fine (except Team Viewer, which works on another Mint 20 Xfce system, but that's not a question for here). However, she uses Yahoo mail, and for some reason just attempting to load the login page (login.yahoo.com) causes Firefox to crash (I mentioned Thunderbird in the title as I attempted to access Yahoo Mail with it, but because it needs to access the Yahoo Mail page (as I think this is now based on App codes rather than passwords), and doing that crashed Thunderbird also). I'm pretty sure I have methodically gone through all the troubleshooting steps on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems (clear cookies & cache by deleting history; clear startup cache; refresh; reinstall; new profile). Firefox doesn't crash in Troubleshoot mode, despite the fact is seems to still use hardware acceleration, even though I thought it would disable that. Hence, I'm at the end of what I know to try (and that's just from following the guide, I am not an expert) and would be grateful for any help anyone can offer. I attach an image that lists all the submitted crash reports, as they will refer to slightly different conditions as I tried all the options mentioned above. I'm using my own PC to submit this (so any hardware & system data submitted by this web-form won't be relevant), not the Inspiron 1501 that has the issue. I can open the Yahoo mail page on this machine (same version of Firefox) and also on the Inspiron 1501 using Chrome (but there was a different reason relating to security why we couldn't log in via that). Would really like to get Firefox (and Thunderbird) working on the laptop, if possible.
