Hello,

Since the last Firefox update I am being prompted for my primary password at random intervals of time. Before I only needed to enter my primary password once per session and this new behavior is a bit worrying as I didn't see it documented anywhere (is that really Firefox asking me for my credentials?). I had a look in the settings but couldn't see any new "timeout" feature or anything in the Privacy & Security section. What gives?

Thanks for any answer that will explain this mew behavior.

These last few days, maybe since the last update, Facebook is grudgingly slow and doesn't sometimes even load photos. Today it isn't even loading notifications on the right hand side.

With the photos, it shows just a space holder with text saying things "May be an image of a car" in the top left hand corner.

If I'm viewing a pdf in firefox, and I search for a word using ctrl+F, the viewer should jump to the location of the word. But recently for me the viewer is showing the wrong spot in the document. This happens for all pdfs.

For example, if a pdf has the word "fox" on page 4, when I use ctrl+F to search for "fox", firefox will jump to page 3 of the document, not page 4. I have to scroll around searching for the word.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hello.

Up until recently, I could click a link to a locally stored Python source file (.py extension) and it would display as a plain text file in Firefox. This is what I want; e.g., it is a way that I view my notes, refer to examples, and so on.

Starting a few days ago, when I click such a link, I now get a pop-up window with the two options "Open with" or "Save file." I have tried a number of things to get back to the old behavior, including deleting the handlers.json file in my Profile folder, running a full Refresh, and creating a new profile. None of these got me back to the old behavior: displaying the .py file as plain text.

If I set the "Open with" option in that pop-up window to Firefox, I just keep getting the pop-up over and over again, while a new tab is created each time.

Note: if I look at a .py file on GitHub, there is no problem: again, the file just displays.

I suspected this behavior is connected with my having installed the latest version of Python (3.9.6) a few days ago, and I just confirmed this by updating Python on another machine. That is, on the other machine, the .py file would display as plain text until just now, after I update Python there.

So, I believe the Python installation is the cause of the problem, but, nonetheless, it seems to me that I should be able to set (or unset?) something within Firefox to make .py files open as plain text, as they used to.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Whenever I try to print anything in Firefox, I get a box that pops up with a spinner and the message "Preparing Preview". This goes on forever, and never goes away. I've tried the suggestion found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox, and that did not help.

I can print if I go in to about:config and set "print.tab_modal.enabled" to "false". But, this doesn't allow me to preview what I am printing first.

I'm on version 90.0.2 (64-bit) of Firefox.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello all,

Lately I received a report from some colleagues that a certain feature is not working in Firefox that appears to be working on any other browser.

When drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook (Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise) to a drop-field in Firefox (88.0.1 - 64-bit) nothing happens.

When using Firefox we can drag/drop files from Windows Explorer, but not from Outlook.

The same fields do work flawlessly when drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook in Google Chrome, Microsoft EDGE, Opera and Safari. So Firefox is the only browser - on several OS's - that does not allow e-mails/attachments to be dropped from Microsoft Outlook. We have tested multiple users on different workstation and we have tested drop-fields from several web applications.

Surprisingly I cannot find any solution to this. The only similar cases I was able to find are from a couple of years ago but are about the other way around (so drag/dropping files FROM Firefox to another application).

At this moment I am advising my colleagues to use another browser. But we really want this to work properly with any browser of choice. Hope this community can help us out.

The update to Firefox 89.0 did not fix this problem.

Note: UAC is enabled on the workstations. Disabling does not affect anything. Tested attachments: .pdf, .docx, .html & .xlsx

Hello, my hero! I need your help. Look at the screenshot and you will understand faster. Is it possible to return the icons to Firefox dropdown menus after Firefox removed this functionality in June updates? For example, if you open "Application menu" you cannot work fast because you have to read all those menus. It makes my work too slow! I have got used to visual pictograms, but now they are gone, not-thanks to you Firefox devs!!! New tab, New window, New private window, Bookmars, History, Downloads, Passwords, all of these are just words, just text! It used to be so convenient just to quickly click the icon, and now i have to read all the wordsto hopefully find the required function. Can you make icons for those menus, please? Or at least, is there any extension for this? p.s. Come on Firefox, you have only made the design worse because it slows down people's ability to find the required things. How can this text be better than icons??? Do I have to count them or should I have a reaction of an insect? p.s.s. Firefox 90.0.2.

Hi,

Our company recently moved away from Chrome so i picked FF as an alternative. However there is a weird bug when I'm connecting to and off VPN (we are using pulse secure client).

Our current setup: The proxy is hosted pac file on company server which is defined in the W10 system settings. When I connect to pulse secure, the pac file can be accessed and I can use internal/external network.

When I connect to the VPN FF decents the change and works fine. However when I disconnect and try to continue browsing, it takes up to 3 minutes for FF to load the pages again.

I'd like to ask if there is an option to modify the time for FF to check for the pac file? the MS Edge does not take more then 5 seconds to detect the change.

Thanks Regards Jan

I know how to clear site data for certain websites, but I would like to do the opposite - preserve site data and cookies for specific websites and delete everything else. It's not in options, perhaps there is an addon that would help me achieve this? Or how can I export (make backup) for a website that I could restore back after clearing everything?

The last issues I ran into with this section (news quiz), no matter which week I clicked on, it always and ONLY opened to one quiz from a couple of years ago. Open Slate to Slate News Quiz. Click on any week. There is text, but the news quiz never fills page.

Can't seem to catch it "on camera", so I'll have to do my best to describe it.

When hovering over a canvas element on a certain site, the cursor is meant to change from your system default to a custom one. When doing so, the cursor briefly (blink-and-you'll-miss-it) shows a larger, glitchier version of the custom cursor, and then fixes itself and changes to the custom cursor as expected.

I reported it to the admins of the site, who tell me it might be something to do with my GPU. I've tried disabling hardware acceleration, I've tried clearing my startup cache, I've refreshed Firefox, I've ran in safe/troubleshooting mode (in case it was any of my add ons - it was not!), i've updated my BIOS and graphics card (Firefox is up-to-date). I've restarted Firefox itself multiple times. It does not happen in my other installed browser (Brave). I also cleared my cache for that site to no avail.

The only way it seemed to fix was when I ran OBS (recording/streaming program) and tried to record it. I don't know what it did, but it came back when I stopped recording.

If I enter a search beginning and ending with quotation mark, ie " I get the following behaviour. If I enter

 "Hats

I see

 "Hats

in the eBay search bar. If I add a " after the 's' I lose the first " and end with

 Hats"

If I delete the contents and type a sing " the search bar is populated with

 Hats"

I'm using:

 Windows 10 (all up to date but this has been happening for a while)
 Firefox 90.0.2 (64 bit)

I don't have this issue with any other browser including Firefox on a similar Desktop I have deleted all cookies with 'ebay' in the URL

This is driving me nuts and considering ditching Firefox, at least for eBay. Any ideas what is causing this. I can assure anyone it is genuine, perhaps I should consider a youtube video of this madness?
