Dark Reader works for all sites except for mozilla.org, I think these webpages are over-ridden by the Firefox browser? I saw a couple archived posts recommending global changes for all sites via Firefox -> Settings -> Language and Appearance -> Colors, or to install themes. Neither option would work. I don't want to override all sites to dark globally, that's way to much change, just let Dark Reader change just mozilla.org.

Hey,

I've been having an odd issue with Firefox where tabs where I attempt to access youtube.com will immediately crash. This issue first arose when I attempted to log in to Youtube, and had never occurred before. When I did that login, the tab crashed, and I have been unable to access the website since (100% crash rate).

Basic details: The website does not visually load at all. However, the URL bar icons for the website do briefly appear prior to tab crash. (Autoplay button, etc). The crash is never reported in about:crashes.

I've tried the following tests, unsuccessfully: - Logging out of all Google accounts separately - Disabling all extensions - Transferring all of my data to a new computer - Reinstalling Firefox - Rebooting Firefox in troubleshooting mode

This problem does not occur on my Windows machine but occurred on my previous intel-based Mac and now on my current Apple Silicon Mac.

The only success I have had is in creating an entirely new Firefox profile. However, I would prefer to fix the issue, as I assume that porting all my settings to the new profile would... also probably bring the bug along.

Thanks for reading & any advice is appreciated.

I have been getting this error message for over a week now, PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. My internet is fine and I have restarted my computer a few time since the problem started. I have added some sites to the Exceptions list but even then they don't work properly. I have tried refreshing Firefox and changed the profile and they both didn't fix the problem. I am sadly not knowledgeable enough to make sense of the Web Developer Tools. The attached image is what my YouTube page looks like after add the site to the Exceptions list.

I had 2 windows open, closed one, lost all of my tabs. Restore didn't work. I tried to restore by renaming session-store-backups folder files. doesn't work. There is a file called upgrade.jsonlz4 from November, maybe that could be used to restore tabs somehow?

Foxnews.com causes Firefox 102.0.1 to freeze when scrolling pages with lots of images. Closing and restarting FF does not help. The freeze reoccurs. What does help for awhile is to delete the file places.sqlite. After that FF runs for a few hours until the problem happens again. Is there a setting or other fix for this issue?

AdBlockPlus and uBlock Origin are both installed, but are disabled on www.foxnews.com.

For whatever reason, I can't find a simple way to file a bug report. Starting 120.0, or maybe in 120.0.1, I've started seeing a cursor appearing next to buttons and other components on web pages that you definitely would not expect to see cursors next to.

It seems that a cursor has started to display when I click on web components even if it's not a text entry field. I've included a screen shot that includes a cursor appearing next to the Refresh button in Gmail, for example.

There's even a cursor appear in the "Browse" button on this very page in the Add Images section.

Firefox is not using direct WebRTC connection when disabling TURN protocol but candidates are presented

Hello,

we have a BigBlueButton Server setup for our company. Until recently we used a TURN-Server to tunnel the UDP connections thrugh the firewall.

Due to performance issues we wanted to try and let the clients connect directly to the udp ports 16000 - 32000

In Chrome this works as expected.

In Firefox however when we set "media.peerconnection.turn.disable" to "true" FF does not find any WebRTC candidates. We checked the logs and it says there:

"relay only option is set without any TURN server configured" "relay/proxy only option results in ICE TCP being disabled"

But thats NOT true! The option "media.peerconnection.ice.relay_only" is definetly set to "false"

Tested on FF 115.5.0 ESR and 120.0.1

Does anyone have an idea whats happening here? Why doesnt FF even try to make a direct connection?

UPDATE: I just ran a test on our dev system. If we configure BBB so that it does not offer any TURN-servers, FF uses a direct connection. Sadly that is not possible, since we need the TURN server for external connections. When there are TURN-Candidates but TURN is disabled via FF config no connection is established at all. This definetly semms like a bug in FF, since the browser should still be able to simply try and connect directly.


Thank you for you support

Update to Firefox (120.0.1) in Linux Mint blocks CNN - its the only site which appears to be blocked. I get a message telling me that configuration of the site is blocking CNN from loading, and goes on as follows.

"" We apologize, but your web browser is configured in such a way that it is preventing this site from implementing required components that protect your privacy and allow you to view and change your privacy settings. This functionality is required for privacy legislation in your region.

We recommend you use a different browser or disable the “EasyList Cookie” filter from your “Content Filtering” settings (found under “Settings” -> “Shields” in the Brave Browser). ""

Rather strange, since I'm using Firefox.

In general, I am thoroughly annoyed with the way the Internet experience is increasingly fouled up by various sites implementing "safety" aspects. It used to be fun, now its a crap experience. Firefox is getting bigger, slower, and infested with site 'improvements' which do absolutely nothing for me - Is it so hard to provide a simple, clean, straightforward browser without so many 'add-ons' that its grinding to a halt? Time was software was written for the users, now its clearly written to give software developers something to do. Can't you create a revolution in software and do something useful, instead of "clever"?

I frequently use GroupMe on desktop from Firefox, on two separate computers (a self-built desktop, and a Dell Latitude laptop).

Starting sometime over a week ago, I have been unable to drag & drop or otherwise upload photos in my chats. The only method that works is pasting direct URLs of JPGs.

In all other circumstances, I get the uploaded image error attached to this post.

Two different GroupMe support agents have said that, since image upload is still working in Edge, that it's a Firefox problem.

Tried clearing cache, site cookies, reset the browser, ran in troubleshooting mode...same result every time.

This is not the "image file size too big" error. I used to routinely post captures from the Snipping Tool, and I can't anymore.

I'm not sure where else to go to troubleshoot this. It's very annoying. Any suggestions?

Whenever I open Firefox, it opens every tab from my previous session. I don't want this - if I closed the window, it was because I wanted it closed, and I don't need any automated system to re-open everything on the off chance I was wrong. I believe the setting for this is on the General tab, but as you can see in the attached screenshot, it's definitely off, yet the feature won't go away. I also tried changing the config settings, as listed here:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1285172/firefox-always-restores-windows-and-tabs-after-reboot

, but it had no effect.

How do I stop Firefox opening these tabs without permission?

Hello to everybody, My question: Opening local .mdb files (MS Access database) does no longer work in Firefox 120, but was ok in previous releases. The only choice is to save the file rather than onening it with MS access. Under Firefox settings/applications the file type .mdb does not appear. If I answer the question "What should Firefox do with other files?" with "Ask whether to open or save files" it has no effect at all. I expect to find an entry for .mdb files where to choose "always ask" as was the case earlier. Please help!
