I have firefox 78.0.1 64b on windows 10 installed I have teams of MS installed if you go the website of teams called by meeting invite - there is a possibility to start the teams standalone application. when requesting this in FF, it does not start teams - on the page is also indicated that FF is not supported for teams. if I do this in edge (I never use edge - just for test) this opens the appl is there a setting that would prevent this ? can we configure this to allow starting an appl ? thanks for all update/help best regards, Guy

Every search I perform using google is being hyjacked by yahoo. I have read that many other users are having the same problem. I have tried to follow the steps to remove the add-on or extension but when I click on "add-ons" or extensions from the menu it just opens a new blank tab in my browser. When I click on search in the preferences menu, google is the only search engine checked in all of my selections. Please help me get rid of the yahoo search.

Hi,

it's the second time that I found a mail from "Firefox <Mozilla@e.mozilla.org>" in my spam folder. Its links seem suspicious to me, beginning with "https://click.e.mozilla.org/" followed by long sequences of digits and letters. The mail's text is identical with parts of the German site "https://www.mozilla.org/de/". Subject line is "Schütze das Web, das du liebst". Maybe it's no spam/phishing, but I want to be shure.

Probably I'm wrong here, but I couldn't find a better place to post this. If so, could anyone tell me the right place to report this?

Thanks a lot! Thomas

I hardly know how to describe the problem I've been having but I'm fed up with it! Just now I was in a site to purchase an item and clicked to go through PayPal. I could enter all my log in details for PayPal but it would not open the PayPal site. This has happened every time I've tried to use PayPal lately. I then have to go and use Edge and do my purchase through there, no problem at all.

Often when I've tried to open a log in window that opens in a separate pop up style window, that window will only open as a tiny window in the top left corner. I have to drag the bottom and sides to get it big enough to fill out. Then when you enter that info ready for the next section, it reverts right back to the tiny window once more. I've done all sorts of things in my settings and mostly no change. I did however get the bank log in window to stop doing it and work properly.

Another issue is the correct time for me here in Aust is no longer being recognised in some cases. One is the Track My Hours App. I enter 'Start now' and it says 6:55 AM when it's actually 4:55 PM on my computer clock! It is not the App as I now use it in Edge as well and it is fine there. I never used to have this problem with the much earlier versions of Firefox, it only started a month or so ago when I got a new computer with the latest version installed, at that stage I think it was 72 and I had other problems as well that finally got sorted.

I really want to continue using Firefox but can't do so with several sites and then waste a lot of time swapping over to another browser. I have version 83 now.

Can anyone please help!!! Thanks.

Hello,

We are using Firefox 78 ESR configured by Group Policies. Nearly everything works as wanted but one thing:

When we start Firefox an update Message with the green update now arrow appears in the menu and as popup. It leads to the actual non-ESR Version of Firefox that is not wanted. When looking at the about Firefox page it shows that the used Version of Firefox is the current (ESR) one and doesn't need the update. I can't find the setting that stops Firefox ESR from checking the normal update Channel for the Update notifications.

every help or hint is appreciated,

with best regards, Martin

I have constructed a smart bookmark using places query places query like: place:queryType=0&sort=8&domain=mydomain.com

The full URL is something like: https://mydomain.com?model=product&id=282

Now I want to further restrict the results by filtering out certain HTTP GET Parameter values. for example:

  • I want to leave out URLs having model as a parameter in the URL
  • I want to include URLs having 'product' as a value for parameter model

I looked at the documentation and could find anything related to GET parameters. Is this possible?

Recently, I have been blocked from visiting certain websites by Firefox, which are perfectly fine websites. I have to close out of Firefox and use Safari to connect to these websites. One of the websites is my City of San Bruno website: https://www.onlinebiller.com/sanbruno/index.html.

This is just one of several websites in which I'm told the website there is a potential security issue. Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue: I copy and pasted the warning below: "Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.onlinebiller.com because this website requires a secure connection. What can you do about it? www.onlinebiller.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem."

I contacted the City of San Bruno and was told it's a browser problem. As I mentioned above I can connect to these sites through Safari with no problem.

Thank You for any explanation/assistance on how to connect to these websites using Firefox.

A few days ago I found that Captcha was not working in Firefox on a Mac. I click on the relevant squares but get a new screen to work on. It just goes on and on and no matter how many screens I complete it won't let me through. It works fine on other browsers.

I hate Captcha and can't understand why webmasters can't use a better system to check that a viewer is a real person.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Via "about:config" the "signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled" option is enabled. I tested it on a fresh install on another machine just now, and it does add the "..." button - however, the option to import and export from file are completely absent - only the options to import from other browsers are available.

SEE SCREENSHOT

The option you can see in the screenshot, that was available until this week apparently, is no longer available after turning it on. I rely on this feature at my Job, when we image machines with logins for our users.

I need this basic functionality of all web-browsers or we'll have to switch to another one. We do not allow the users to Sync their accounts with FireFox/Lockwise, as we do not want the passwords being taken to other locations/pc's where they have signed to Firefox.

Please help - Thank you.

A while back, I accidentally clicked on "always block" in the popup when I received a notice of a potential cross-site script attack for a frequently visited site. Since then, whenever the site comes up in a search and i click on it, Firefox will not open it. Instead, I need to right-click, copy link, and paste in the address bar. I have tried to find information on how to undo this, but have been unsuccessful. Is there a list somewhere of blocked sites that I can unblock? Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.
