I have not been able to connect to www.paperbackswap.com for 2 days using Firefox. I get this message - The page isn’t redirecting properly-An error occurred during a connection to www.paperbackswap.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies. This is a persistent problem happening every few days. I have sent messages before to PBS and Firefox with no response. I have cleared cookies and added PBS to Firefox as a site to always accept cookies. I can access the site using Chrome but I would prefer Firefox. Is there anything that can be done?

I have multiple internal websites, which all follow the pattern of [site.one.two] which resolves fine using the internal DNS server i have configured by going to https://site.one.two and through other programs via site.one.two, and all the [one.two] suffixes are blacklisted from being resolved with DoH in firefox, but it still forces a web-search, even with searching from address bar being turned off, instead of resolving through my local DNS server (local server resolves local domain suffixes, anything else gets resolved through cloudflare DNS). I haven't found a fix in any other forums, and there are enough unique internal addresses that manually adding each and [every site.one.two] as an exception would be something i would like to avoid. Is there any way to tell firefox to resolve through DNS first for addresses or domain suffixes?

Forcing Cmd/Ctrl+click to ALWAYS open the link in a background tab - even in Google Docs?

My preferences are set so that "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" is OFF. Therefore most of the time when I Cmd+click on a link, it opens on a new tab that loads in the background. This is what I want.

However, some websites break that behavior. 2 high-profile examples:

  • In Google Docs, if a piece of text links to an URL, clicking on the text shows a small window with the URL. Cmd+click on that URL opens it in a new tab, and takes me to that tab.
  • In Facebook Messenger, if I Cmd+click on a chat, again the chat opens in a new tab and I'm taken there. Additionally, the original tab activates that chat.

Interestingly, in both these cases, I get the right behavior if I right-click on the URL or in the chat and in the contextual menu choose "Open link in new window/tab/container tab": the new tab stays in the background.

So my question is: does anyone know of a way to always make cmd+click behave just like "Open link in new tab", no matter the website?

I'm on Firefox 115b4 on macOS, but this has been like this for years at least.

I am a UK user and have just installed and started to use Firefox on a brand new Linux Mint installation. As I am transferring from a Windows/Chrome environment, there is a lot of setting up to do. Firefox transferred most of the chrome info for me, and so I was able to get up and running with bookmarks and logins quite quickly. However, there is one problem that I can't seem to resolve.

I have been able to set up my credit card details, and these are prompted when needed, BUT, Firefox will not remember my name, email, phone or address. Thus for every form that I have to fill, I have to enter these details, again and again (and again).

I have looked at settings and see that the 'Autofill Address' option is not present (see attachment).

I have followed and implemented the fix proposed elsewhere, to update/add GB as an address format. This has not made a difference.

Can anyone please help.

Regards,

Mark

When I pressed the "+" symbol at the right side of my tabs with the left mouse button, a new tab opens at the most right place. So far, so easy.

When I pressed the same "+" symbol using the middle mouse button, the new tab opened right beside the active tab. Now, middle mouse button and left mouse button do the same thing.

Work around could be to open the context menu (right mouse button) of a tab, choose "new tab" an get a new tab right beside the tab chosen with the mouse pointer while pressing the right mouse button.

Did something recently change?

Somehow this en.softonic nonsense has made it into my windows notifications tab under 'firefox' notifications. How can I get rid of it? I can't find it in the General, Add-on or Extensions settings of Firefox or Windows Uninstall to turn it off or remove it.

I am currently fresh on Fedora 38 and Firefox 115 with multimedia codecs installed such as ffmpeg. I have problems playing videos on Facebook or Twitch, like in myday stories, reels, and feed. But in YouTube, videos plays perfectly so I think there is a bug going on here? I already tested turning hardware acceleration on and off but no avail.

How can I turn this message off? Some sites I visit give me that message, it shows up when I'm typing a reply to something which pushes the page lower and fouls up my ability to keep typing, then if goes away, comes back, goes away ... I just want to kill the message entirely. I'm not worried about speed, there's nothing to fix, I just want the message gone.

How do I have all my bookmarks and folders sorted by name automatically and permanently? When I open Bookmarks I want to see the folders sorted and the bookmarks inside each folder sorted, automatically so I never have to manually. In other words, behave like Windows File Explorer.

I'm almost certain I had it working that way on a previous installation of FireFox, but I can't get this new installation of Firefox to do the same.

Firefox upgrade from 115 -> 116 results in “broken” screen capture

Reposting from https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/firefox-upgrade-from-115-116-results-in-broken-screen-capture/121964

Howdy folks!

I am on Arch Linux and recently upgraded Firefox from 115 to 116 and this broke WebRTC screen capture. Whenever I try to share my screen in Microsoft teams and Google Meet, the participants only see a black screen with a cursor. I am able to reproduce the issue on this test page. I had to downgrade to 115 in order to “fix” this critical feature. Before that it was broken in 114 and I had to use Chromium for presentations. I no longer want to touch Chrome with a 100 ft pole since they are trying to introduce Web Environment Integrity.

The only bug I have been able to find is from three years ago:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1640771

I don’t want to add a “me too” comment, but was wondering how to show/give my support to get this issue fixed? It is crippling to my work workflow, and I don’t want to be on 115 forever. I am an engineer so I can provide advanced support to a Firefox dev, just not development as firefox is gargantuan beast of a code base.

Any guidance or pointers would be appreciated, Thanks!

When writing reviews in Google Maps when you click post pictures from your computer (allowing one to browse your computer to find pictures to post) the tab crashes.

This occurs on other websites as well where one would browse the computer to attach documents, photos or videos. Heck, it even happens with this site (selecting browse to post picture causes firefox to crash).

This did not occur prior to updating to 115.0

Firefox 115.0b7 is not correctly handling my system timezone, and using GMT instead. This only happens in specific pages, such as when accessing a website, or in `about:home`. It doesn't happen in `about:config` or `about:profiles`, for instance.

`privacy.resistFingerprinting` is set to `false`. The problem persists in Troubleshoot mode. The issue isn't present in Firefox ESR 102.12.0.

Running `date -R` with the system shell: `Sat, 22 Jul 2023 12:10:42 -0300`

Javascript console at `about:config`: ``` > Date() "Sat Jul 22 2023 12:10:42 GMT-0300 (Brasilia Standard Time)" > new Date() Date Sat Jul 22 2023 12:10:42 GMT-0300 (Brasilia Standard Time) > (new Date()).getTimezoneOffset() 180 ```

Javascript console at `about:home` or `https://example.com`: ``` > Date() "Sat Jul 22 2023 15:10:42 GMT+0000 (GMT)" > new Date() Date Sat Jul 22 2023 12:10:42 GMT-0300 (Brasilia Standard Time) > (new Date()).getTimezoneoffset() 0 ```

Here is a sample URL that works on Microsoft Edge (current version) and receives an error message on Firefox (115.0.2): https://www.t-mobile.com/home-internet The error received from the web site when using FF is:

Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.

FF was working with all T-Mobile pages a few months ago and now fails with this same error on most pages.

To test on Edge, I pasted the identical address that failed in FF into Edge and it worked fine so I am confident I am comparing the same web page on the two browsers.

Thanks for your help. Claude
