I am trying to setup proxy server for Firefox 106.0 on my Windows 11 Laptop. I have Windows 11 setup to provide system proxy settings to a local intranet squid proxy server at port 3128 with a configuration file. With this setup both google chrome and Microsoft Edge find the proxy and correctly utilize it. when I use Firefox and watch the squid logs the proxy is bypassed when settings are set for "use system proxy settings, no proxy, automatic proxy configuration url" If i set to manual proxy configuration it works.

Often when I start up Firefox, this webpage opens up with it as well:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/welcome/14/

There are other variations of this page-- apparently this is number 14.

I am not interested in buying Mozilla's subpar VPN and do not want to keep getting advertisements about it. Is there any way to disable this?

Thanks.

I would like to open my history page and select an entry and open in it a new tab and the history page to remain open.

It is annoying that the history page closes automatically after the user opens a selected entry. Because I often view history trying to find a previous tab and typically don't find it first go, but then have to reopen history :(

Is it possible to change that behaviour?

I use Firefox for my work and that involves working with a lot of images online. For some reason, this option has been completely removed from Firefox for me.

Now when I right-click on an image, there is no longer any option to copy the image, copy the image's location or save the image.

Like I said, I use this browser for work and if I can't interact with images I'll have to start using some other browser.

Thanks in advance.

In my firefox the file input is not functioning at all.

EX: I go to https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_input_type_file and try and use any of the file inputs there - they just do nothing.

Same with the file inputs on this support form page. None of them work for me.

Is it possible to request a feature for Firefox called "Link to Highlight"?

Chromium based browsers have a feature where you can make a selection of text on a webpage and in the right click context menu select: "Copy link to highlight", which copies a link to the webpage, with an appended selection like so: "#:~:text=Steps%20to%20reproduce%20the%20issue%3A". Then when the link is clicked, the Chromium based browser would scroll down to the match of the text, flash a colour to show where it is, and tint the text with a subtle highlight. The text in this example would then be "Steps to reproduce the issue.". This helps in my workflow when using a browser, so this feature would make me super happy.

How to get rid of square tab named "firefox view" to "sync with other devices"?? This appeared after a firefox update a few days ago and purports to sync firefox with my "other devices" Right now it shows "33% completed". I do not have any other devices .... just my computer. This extra tab takes up room on the page and I just want to get rid of it but there is no apparent way to close it. I view this as an unwelcome intrusion on my Firefox browser --- How do I get rid of it?

Before today, my 1Password 8 password manager worked just fine with Firefox browser on Windows 11. I updated my Firefox browser to 106.0.1 (64 bits) today and all of a sudden my 1Password manager stopped filling in my usernames and passwords for me into my logins. How do I get this functionality back so my 1Password manager works with Firefox again? Is there some setting that I failed to update in Firefox? Thanks. MR

Is there a toggle to turn off the purple theme in private windows? As an elderly person I find it hard to see things and it's quite irritating to say the least. This only started showing up in my Windows 10 and my linux systems in FF Version 106 and is also violating my preferences to have a totally blank page when a new private window is opened. Suggestions would be most appreciated.

On 10/16 I reported here a corrupt session file that broke Firefox. Finally resolved for the most part.

Firefox sync sessions?

Today, I launched Firefox 106, and all my pinned tabs were missing, on several differently customized profiles with the same session.

I reverted back to Firefox 105.03, and the pinned tabs on all those tested profiles reappeared.

Can somebody check this out? It may be a coincidence, but this is too close for comfort.

I have two audio devices for audio output (speakers) on my PC. One is for music and the other is a Jabra device for conferences. When using Google Meet, only one of the devices is available to me (the music speakers). What is strange is that when I am using Zoom or Teams both devices are available and selectable.

Echo cancellation would be better if I could use the Jabra device for Google Meet calls.

I am using Firefox / Windows 11 (Version 10.0.22621 Build 22621).

Thanks in advance!

I DON"T WANT TO SYNC my devices. I just want to get rid of that icon. When I try to sign in it tells me it will send me a 6 digit code and I have to enter it in 5 mins. I never received the code. I don't care if I ever get the code. Please tell me how to get rid of the icon w/o going thru the process of the "tutorial" Thank you!
