The latest update added a new warning to the "Forget About This Site" feature. I use this sometimes, and when I saw this warning for the first time yesterday, I knew it was going to be a pain in the arse. I understand it's useful to some people, but I do not want to see it every time. How do I disable this warning?

Firefox will randomly stop resolving google search results. At random times, no search entered at the top url bar will resolve. The browser will just change the text in the bar, and then won't do anything else. If there is a Google page already open, it won't load any links from the results. Google.com won't even load. This typically lasts about 2-5 minutes.

I've seen this in both Windows and Linux. Linux Builds I've tested were the Flatpak from flathub, the snap, the Fedora Repo, and the Tarball binary. They all had the same result after a while of using it. This also happens on both my home network as well as my work network.

I have cleared my profile by manually deleting the folder in appdata or in ~/.mozilla, and tested with no extensions and no setting tweaks. The only tweak I made is disabling DNS over HTTPS. If I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo or something else, It no longer happens. but that's because it's not trying to access a google domain.

I have attached a gif of my issue.

Each morning, when I first cold boot my computer, the moment I open my Firefox browser, I receive numerous (10+) identical error messages from Bitdefender:

Suspicious connection blocked: Feature: Online Threat Prevention

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to content-signature-2.cdn.mozilla.net. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.

Question: Is this ACTUALLY coming from Firefox? If so, please match your security certificates! If that's impossible due to a technical issue, then please email me your confirmation so that I can add an exception to Bitdefender.

Question: If it's not coming from Firefox, please email me, letting me know what additional system information you require so that we can get to the bottom of who/what is masquerading as Firefox while attempting to establish an unauthorized Internet connection from my computer.

HP Envy laptop, Windows 10 OS, latest update.

This has been occurring for several months.

Thank you for your time.

Hi,

I have been using Firefox sync for many years now. I just got a new computer and when I tried to connect with my account, I received a message saying Firefox has locked my account.

Would you please fix this asap? I use your browser to work and not having my account back would force me to switch to Chromium, which I don't want to. Please note my account and my email address are both legit. Thanks

A few moths ago, when you visited a website and then typed some new search-term in the address-bar, you used to be able to search right in that tab. Now a new tab opens up and you get moved there.

While programming, i search for a lot of stuff. Switch to Firefox -> Ctrl+L -> type search-term is the fastest way i found to search for whatever I need. Problem is: now my browser clutters itself by always opening new tabs instead of just reusing the one i don't need anymore.

So my questions would be this:

  1. Is it possible to restore the old behaviour of staying within your one tab?
  2. If there is some other shortcut that allows for searching without moving to a new tab?

(I also tried Ctrl+K and Ctrl+J. Both still open a tab when you already are on a website.)

FF 93.0 64-bit - Windows 10

When I booted up the system and ran FF the first time for the day, its window opened, and it even asked for the primary password. After that, nothing I typed in the URL box came out. I could open new tabs but not able to switch to them. All Chromium-based browsers and Edge in the same system worked fine.

I did the following trying to fix the problem: I restarted Win10 and ran FF93. Same problem. I restarted using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I reinstalled using the complete package. Same problem. I installed using FF92 and FF91. Same problem. I refreshed FF93 using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I used Win10 Safe Mode to run FF93. It worked. I uninstalled FF93, removed as much as I could all traces of FF and Mozilla in the Win registry, and reinstalled FF93. Same problem.

In the end, I had to use Win10 Recovery and revert to an earlier date to fix it.

The first incident happened about two weeks ago. It happened again this morning. My use of PC has been routine for years, I would say for more than a decade, or at least in the last five years. No extraordinary applications or routines.

BTW, I haven't updated my Win10 in years, because doing so often times gave me new mysterious issues to troubleshoot, courtesy of MS. You should very well know Win updates produce issues, and the bug fixes following them produce even more. The annoying thing is I would research on the issues and find out later (sometimes days) that the updates were the culprits.

This is the second time it happened to my FF93, and I feel I have to report this to get some idea about why this is happening (only to me?) and how to fix or prevent it without having to go into Recovery (again?).

[PL]: Zwracam się do Państwa z uprzejmą prośbą i pytaniem: jak przywrócić sesję w Mozilli Firefox bez odświeżania przywracanych kart? Podczas użytkowania, Mozilla Firefox niespodziewanie się zamknęła. Pojawiła się możliwość przywrócenia sesji (co zostało zaprezentowane na dołączonym zrzucie ekranu). Zależy mi, by po wciśnięciu przycisku ,,Przywróć sesję", wszystkie przywrócone karty otworzyły się bez odświeżania, czyli innymi słowy, by otwarte w tych kartach strony internetowe nie zostały odświeżone. Niektóre strony internetowe po odświeżeniu nie będą już aktywne bądź nie będą już posiadały informacji, które są mi niezbędne do dalszej pracy, dlatego zależy mi, by odzyskać je w takim stanie, w jakim były one przed nieoczekiwanym zamknięciem Mozilli Firefox, gdyż jest to sytuacja, która nie wynika z mojej winy tylko z zaistniałej awarii Mozilli Firefox. Proszę o odpowiedź, co należy zrobić (np. co zmienić w ustawieniach przeglądarki Mozilla Firefox lub gdziekolwiek indziej), by przywracając sesję, karty nie zostały odświeżone. Jeśli znają Państwo jakieś inne sposoby, by karty w przeglądarce nie zostały odświeżone (związane np. z przywracaniem systemu do punktu przywracania bądź z połączeniem internetowym), to proszę o wskazówki, ponieważ nieoczekiwane zamknięcie Mozilli Firefox spowodowało mi ogromne kłopoty. Z góry serdecznie dziękuję za pilną pomoc, ponieważ jest mi ona potrzebna jak najszybciej z uwagi na moje obowiązki.

After refreshing, some websites will no longer be active or will no longer have information that is necessary for my further work, so I want to recover them in the state they were in before the unexpected shutdown of Mozilla Firefox, because this is a situation that is not my fault but the failure of Mozilla Firefox. Please. o answer what needs to be done (e.g. what to change in the settings of Mozilla Firefox or elsewhere) so that the tabs are not refreshed when restoring the session. system to a restore point or with an internet connection), I am asking for tips, because Mozilla Firefox unexpectedly shutdown I was in great trouble.
