Please, why would you remove FVD Speed dial without first giving a warning so users can download their latest websites they have stored on it. that S__t is F______d up. What The F___ . some of those sites I had saved were hard to find the first damn time and now the whole set is f____ ing gone. I did not GIVE A DAMN if they shared data. I want my damn FVD Speed dial back or access to it to save my stuff first.

I find it totally unacceptable that you removed the tool I use THE MOST with out any opportunity save my tabs to export so I can still have them.

That arbitrary do it with no warning s__t is rude as f__c.

I tried sending a friend of mine an audio message on FB messenger (in firefox 92, updated yesterday), on Windows 7. Facebook tells me it needs permission (see image). I've tried everything I can find about this. The Firefox page-info permissions is now set to "ALLOW" although it was set to use default (ALWAYS ASK). It just doesn't work. In the regular settings for microphone, it will NOT ALLOW me to add the website and apparently, FB is NOT asking for permission, because the entire dialog is EMPTY.

It was automatically deleted. No idea for how long its been there. could it have have done some damage unknown to my Antivirus ? How dangerous is it? Are there any further steps to take ?

Hello! I have a problem with Firefox. Whenever I have selected text and I press the control key, that text becomes unselected. Is like I lost focus of the window or the input text when I'm pressing the control key.

This is really annoying because it makes copy and paste really complicated. Most of the times I have to select the text and right click - "Copy" instead of a simple "Control + C". This only happens on Firefox, as on Chrome the control key works as expected.

I'm on Linux.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

Hi, I've been having issues with Firefox for some time now. Every page I got to throws a NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY error. I cannot fix it by setting network.http.spdy.enabled.http2 to false is because Firefox then starts crashing. In the past I've gone around the error by turning http2 off, but recently, first the developer edition, then after today's update to 91.0-0.1 of stable version Firefox crashes if I turn the feature off.

The developer Edition started throwing NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY sometime in spring, then started crashing in June I think. The stable version followed soon as described above.

I am submitting this ticket from a beta version, which for some reason does not have this issue.

I thought it may be the Linux version of Eset, but removing it did not help. I cannot think of any other reason why am I getting those errors, but it seems I am alone because my colleagues don't seem to have this issue neither on macOS, nor Windows.

Hello,

Since the new update(s) I'm having major issues with the settings of my Wordpress website. It seems I'm not the only one having problems adding a user in Wordpress - which is impossible in FF, it only works in Chrome. https://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-set-password-for-new-users/

But now my major problem is that the changes I make (see screenshot) are not saved in FF. So when I log out of WP and FF, then start again and login to FF and WP, the changes I've made are not shown, in other words, the old situation is back.

I disabled ALL of my add-ons, that seemed to work for a short time, but as soon as I was testing the add-ons, to find out which add-on was corrupted, I now have the same problem again, and all the add-ons are OFF.

So I'm stuck here, and find the errors I see in Wordpress bizar it can be caused by FF.

I'm using the latest version of FF, which is a beta which I don't like, but as soon as I try to downgrade, I am getting page crashes all the time.

Am I the only one having this issue?

I need some help please!

Site design switch to dark mode is broken for me in Firefox Developer Ed. 92.0b3 (aarch64 on M1 machine) at multiple places like manning.com and their Live books or at spring.io. This not so on my intel Mac where this works fine.

I switch to the site's own dark mode. Unlike in my other browsers, the site theme doesn't change. This means Firefox Developer 92.0b3 cannot render one of the designs of the site. I've also tried with all extensions off and this doesn't change anything.

I think this worked when the install was fresh, but clearly something broke. It could be an aarch64 bug, but unsure at the moment.

I'll try with another profile, but it would be nice to find the actual cause too.

Any ideas?

HTML5, YouTube, and Netflix video playback does nothing

Playing HTML5, Youtube, or Netflix video does not work at all for me - Netflix throws an error code, while Youtube and HTML5 simply never stop loading.

I've tried

  • Starting Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode
  • Clearing the cache and cookies for the given website
  • Refreshing Firefox

On the chromium-based edge browser, video playback works normally.

DRM-controlled content playback is enabled, hardware acceleration is disabled, allowing auto-play doesn't help, and neither does disabling Tracking Protection.

Win10 with what was Firefox 89. I had already disabled the Proton UI on this installation, because it is horrible. Today Firefox decided to update to version 91. All of the Proton UI junk is back. I tried disabling it again, but nothing worked. Doing a web search, it appears that Mozilla has disabled the ability to turn off Proton.

I then set about to rollback the installation back to version 89. I found a Mozilla link on this, went to their ftp server and downloaded the installation files for the last version of 89. The installation went normally, but when I opened Firefox afterwards, a little box popped up saying something to the effect of "To keep your History and Bookmarks from possibly being corrupted, Firefox must create new user profile." I exited out of this and Firefox didn't start. I attempted to restart Firefox again and the same box popped up again. The only way to get past it was to click the accept button.

I did so and Firefox started. This was clearly not version 89. As the UI is junk, it took several minutes to find out that this was now the latest version of 92!!!! I'm absolutely positive that I downloaded the correct file. When I look through the update history, it doesn't even show todays version 89 installation as happening. What a piece of junk.

I then spent 20 minutes figuring out how to revert back to my user profile, not the new one that it had created for me. I then did some research on what had happened. Well it turns out that you can't actually rollback Firefox, despite what Mozilla says. For a while they have added "downgrade protection" which automatically creates the new user profile and stops your old profile from being accessed by it. So unless you want to figure out how to spend a hundred hours reconstructing bookmarks, passwords, settings, etc. it actually isn't possible to rollback Firefox. Doesn't this violate some Microsoft rules about being able to uninstall versions of software from within Windows? If you try to do this with Firefox and go back to a previous version it blows everything up.

Does anyone know how to actually rollback Firefox to a previous version, so that Proton can be disabled?

Hello,

I love the tagging bookmarks feature in Firefox. But unfortunately it does not work properly like explained in the help docs.

I search for tags by typing '[+] + [Tag]'. This works for me but I only can search for 10 entries maximum.

Why there is this limitation to bookmark entries in my search bar? And how can I see all my tagged entries even when there are more than 10?

Kind regards Benni

The list of extensions also include .jar so I unfortinately don't know what els to check but I do need the FF html converter back. Thank you so much for trying to help.

Hello,

I'm using firefox-dev under linux debian buster and would like to keep it as my default browser and even more after all those recent articles in media where they say firefox is loosing its users.

I received the newletter from netflix and I tried to watch a trailer (https://www.netflix.com/watch/81387952?trkid=13710079&MSG_TITLE=81387952&lnktrk=EMP&g=79ECBFC7B02B1269F43D15B11C9BA9F56455502C&lkid=TRAILER_CTA) but even after i clicked on accept drm, the video was stuck nothing happened I just saw one single fixed picture of the movie.

Later, I was on facebook, trying to watch a video (https://www.facebook.com/demotivateur/videos/5009752875718446) and the same here without any DRM...

For both of the cases I opened chrome pasted the url and video played very well.

Is there something to tweak to make it work ? Is it because I'm under debian ?

I don't want friends to switch to chrome but I understand them sometimes.

Kr,

Eric
