Hey guys, this thing is bugging me and I've tried pretty much all about:config settings (+ refreshing firefox profile) I could find here to no avail. FF works fine, actually it works great, all links open in tabs, never seen a new window in normal operation except... I have it pinned on taskbar (main, monitor 1, you can't pin on secondary display) and it is all cool. However I have FF on secondary display and clicking on the FF taskbar icon opens a new empty FF window instead of just focusing FF. If FF is in main display, all works. To illustrate:

1. FF set to show on main display, clicking FF icon on the taskbar launches FF if not running or brings FF on top if running. Good

2. FF set to show on secondary display, clicking FF icon on the taskbar (main display) launches FF if not running (and opens it on the secondary display) or launches new empty FF window if FF is already running!. Clicking running FF icon on the secondary taskbar correctly activates FF

This is quite annoying as like 1/3 of the times I intend to bring FF up front I instead open a blank FF window which I need to close and click again on the correct FF icon.

Hi,

I have recently bookmarked from chrome successfully, or so I THOUGHT..... but for some reason when I try add a new bookmark to a folder I have used, the bookmark WON't SEND IT TO THAT FOLDER..... and then for some reason it'll save it when I go into the three bars - Bookmarks - and then appears there instead. I don't understand why the bookmark doesn't save into one of my folders? is there some kind of problem happened when the boomarks migrated from Chrome?

Dear Mozilla Community members,

For a while now I get sort of an error message some time after Windows start (every time): "XULRunner Could not determine any profile running in backgroundtask mode!"

I managed to find out that XULRunner is connected to Mozilla but I haven't found any info about this particular message so far, therefore, I would appreciate your help solving this issue.

Thank you in advance.

A recent update had destroyed my firefox experience.

Recently I've noticed that that this client no longer stores sessions. It will only store one session, the last session, and any stored sessions that are still stored when the client crashes again becomes corrupt. I used to rely on sessions to save large amounts of tabs. However, my client just crashed due to a power outage, I was quickly skimming through my tabs in order to reduce cpu usage and weed some out... when the client suddenly crashed again before I could restore them. I lost them all.

All of a sudden I find myself without an incentive to keep using firefox. Why have you made your client worse? Everything I had was gone, and due to an accident. There is nothing loaded on my computer. And yet it crashed for no reason and everything is gone. If I had an older version of firefox, this would not have happened.

Can you please tell me what happened to your restore session feature and why its total garbage now? Please fix it. I really hate losing weeks worth of research. And no, looking in my history wont help. I have reviewed thousands if not tens of thousands of websites over the several weeks it took to accumulate that research. Finding it all again in my history is impossible. That's why I rely on tab storing services.

How about you make a restore session library tab that stores all your stored sessions securely. I am tired of this data constantly being deleted.

No matter what I do in terms of refreshing Firefox, starting it in Safe mode, or changing performance settings, Google-related web sites such as mail.google.com and the Google search engine stop working after a few minutes. If I exit Firefox and restart it then Google will work for a little while again. All the solutions I have found on here don't work to solve this issue. It seems to have started with a recent update to Firefox (maybe 100.0.2?)

Hello,

Recently I was forced to install some "stuff" on my work laptop. Unfortunately, I am not quite sure what they installed. I have contacted my IT department and all I've gotten in response is that "we haven't blocked any browser or sites."

Since this update, I find that Gmail will eventually show an error and when I go to refresh the page, the loading screen never completes. Additionally, Youtube will eventually declare that I have no connection and at that point I can no longer open new browser tabs.

I have updated Firefox, used troubleshooting mode, removed extensions, turned off ad blockers (uBlock Origin), and nothing seems to work—these issues always appear again eventually.

I would greatly prefer to not use Chrome, so if there is anything I can do to fix these issues I would be all ears to know what it is.

Thank you, John

For the last few weeks I keep getting this error message: An error occurred during a connection to ....... You are attempting to import a cert with the same issuer/serial as an existing cert, but that is not the same cert.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL

It will suddenly happen for multiple sites that I have been connected to in the past, or new sites I try to open including support.mozilla.org. A solution is to clear my history and restart the browser. It only happens on my windows 10 laptop. I think happens when I have logged off or the device has slept and then firefox has restarted and opened previously open tabs. Other devices on the same network don't get effected.

The Washington Post has a feature on some articles called "Listen", where the article is read aloud on the device audio. I often use this because my vision is not as good as it used to be, and I can listen while I perform other tasks (e.g., cook). There is an example at this URL: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/05/24/trump-picks-primaries-perdue-lose-dangerous/

Click "Listen" just above the first text of the article.

This is FF 100.0.2 on Windows 10 21H2 build 19044.1706

I do use the Malwarebytes add-on, but it doesn't work even when I disable it and the FF tracking protection is turned off.

It does work in both Edge and Chrome, with Malwarebytes enabled.

This is very disappointing ...

Issue When opening a link from any other app, the Firefox switches to another virtual desktop if there's an existing Firefox window open.

Reproduce the Issue

  1. Set Firefox to default browser
  2. On Windows 10, open 2 virtual desktops. Use Task View button in Taskbar or use keyboard shortcut Win + Tab and then click on New Desktop. Now you should see 'Desktop 1' and 'Desktop 2', if Task View is opened again.
  3. On Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window.
  4. Switch back to Desktop 1 from Task View.
  5. Open any link (E.g.: https://www.mozilla.org/) from any other app like MS Word, MS Teams, etc.
  6. The virtual desktop would switch to Desktop 2 and open the link on exiting Firefox window.

Question Is there a way to open the link on same virtual desktop in a new window?

Improvement - If it already doesn't exist. Instead of opening the link in existing Firefox window on Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window on Desktop 1 to open the link.

Hi!

I am not sure, if Mozilla is the reason, or Facebook is the reason. But since I can't get any help from FB, I'd like to check also here.

At first, I thought that the problem is on my side, since I am using ICC profiles and maybe I did something wrong. But It is not the problem on my side. I tried with an original jpg file, directly from my camera.

So, when I upload JPG to the Facebook, color of the image changes. This happens only if I publish it directly to my FB wall. If I go to FB "publishing tools" (on FB pages), everything works normal. If I upload the same photo via for example Chrome or Vivaldi, everything works, even if I upload directly to the FB wall.

So the problem occurs only If I upload from Mozilla (I have latest version 100) to the FB wall. Not via "publishing tools" on FB page. But problem is the same if I publish on my FB business page wall. So I assume that the problem is on FB side, that somehow renders files differently then via their Publishing tools. But I am allowing that Mozilla does something to them via the interface.

There must be some problem with Mozilla too, since all images work OK with Chrome or Vivaldi. So, something in relation of Mozilla - Facebook wall.

Currently I just use Chrome for uploading to FB, but I don't want that.

Not sure what to do now. FB does not reply, maybe Mozilla can help or check? I attached a sample photos, to see difference. Here is my Mozilla gfx.color profile too: https://i.ibb.co/CWRHWnh/6.jpg

Hi

This problem still occurs, this time it took about 3 days before it reoccurred. I'm having a problem that appears to be linked to syncing. I can clear it with "Refresh Firefox...", but then it will come back in about 2-3 days. Deleting my profile didn't help. The original problem description can be found at the link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1355876?utm_campaign=questions-solved&utm_source=notification&utm_medium=email#answer-1459234

Are there logs I can review or collect?
