Hello,

I have a problem with opening 2 or 3 websites. I get an error message which is basically the same as if the page did not exist. It does exist though. I tried a different browser and there it works. I also created a new Firefox profile and I can access the sites without issues this way. So the problem must be with my original standard profile. Can you suggest me how to fix this? I already selected these specific websites and had Firefox forget about them in my browsing history, but sadly this does not solve the issue. They are still unavailable.

I don't mind losing pretty much everything attached to this profile in order to solve the issue and be able to open the sites again. Saved logins would be cool to keep, but I can sacrifice those too if there is no other option. The only exception is my browsing history. I do need that one and cant afford to lose it, which is why I do not simply switch over to a new profile. Of course if there is a way to export my entire history to another new profile, then I'd happily take this path too. Just no idea how. Thanks for reading! I hope all is clear, I am not an English native speaker.

I have Firefox 96.0.1 and Windows 11.

I use Kaltura to record lectures and post them to my course at the U of Utah on Canvas. This semester, Firefox will not allow me to open "my media" where the Kaltura recordings are posted on Canvas. I get the following message: It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies.

I copied the Kaltura web address 670542.kaf.kaltura.com that I can see in Chrome and pasted it into a Chrome browser and it goes to my recordings in Canvas when I use Chrome. The same site doesn't work in Firefox. How do I unblock Kaltura third party sessions? Thank you.

I used to have 'Word Hippo' (an on-line thesaurus which I use daily) in my bookmarks, but it has gone and I can't access it on Firefox to re-install it. It is accessible on Chrome but not on Firefox which seem strange, and understandably it won't transfer from there into Firefox Bookmarks.

Why are you eliminating any way to open pages in new windows? That's a deal breaker for me. I'm sick and tired of opening tabs then having to use the context menu to move them to a new window. The browser now dumps every open link into the same window, killing any information in the previous window if you use the back button to go back to it.

Frankly, I find this very confusing, so not sure what is going on.

To connect to the server at work in order to perform over the phone interviews, I need two tabs open in Firefox. The first is for a software dialer called Softphone, and the second tab accesses web based interview software called Confirmit CATI.

Attempting to log into the dialer from CATI results in "Incorrect Extension" errors even though the extension number is correct.

What I discovered today purely by chance, is that in the menu on the top left of the Firefox browser, when I have the above setup activated, there appears a new additional menu option called "Tabs sharing devices", and if I click on this, a "Microphone" labeled drop-down displays, then if I click on that, a further option is displayed regarding Permissions for the Softdial app to use my headset microphone with a "Use the microphone - Allowed" dialogue box where you can enable or disable permission for the Softdialer to use my headset microphone.

What is strange is that if I open this above described microphone permissions dialogue box without changing any settings, I am able to log into my work server successfully (?)

This seems like some sort of glitch or bug which is preventing a clean connection to my workplace.

I would be very grateful if some one could advise me as to what I can do to fix this, or is it some sort of software bug that needs to be fixed by Mozilla or Microsoft. It's driving me nuts.

If you need any more information, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice regarding this problem.

I disabled the popup "Firefox is playing me ..." by entering about:config in the URL bar and set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled = false. This worked okay.

HOWEVER, the volume popup meter still often appear when I watch videos on youtube. It is stuck on the screen and not only is it annoying and won't go away unless I restart. Killing the browser alone does not get rid of it.

When I try to do multitasking ... whatever icon/button functions I click on ... they refuse to cooperate.

unable to turn off safe search when using Bing search. After clicking the more bars on the Bing search page and setting safe search to off, when checking if it is off, it has reverted to moderate. Firefox is vs 96.0.1. Setting is set to normal, not strict. Windows 10 preferences are set to safe search off. All caches have been cleared. I took off all extensions, ran malware bytes & cccleaner & anti-virus scan. I tried a refresh of Firefox. Nothing has helped.

Using Edge or Chrome browsers on the Bing search page, Safe search turns off as it should.

--There was a power failure, last night, which knocked off my computer.  That may or may not be related.  However, with both Edge and Chrome accessing Bing okay, it seems to definitely be a Firefox problem?

Suddenly the backgrounds to many Firefox screens - browser, history, settings - changed from white to black. This makes it very difficult for me to read whats on these screens. How do I change them back to white?

The browser screen was black and I did that "about:config" thing and toggled the "browser.proton.enabled" to False which converted the background of the browser to back to white but all the other drop down menus are still black. The bookmark toolbar menu is black, the background of the hamburger menu is black, and the "customize menu" background is black. These areas are now difficult for me to see.

When FF developers start fooling around with colors in the FF browser they need to tread lightly and be aware of all accessibility problems their users may have. Where accessibility is concerned, one size doesn't fit all. Some people have problems with white backgrounds and others, like myself, have problems reading screens with black backgrounds. One simply MUST be aware of sight problems in users.

P.S. I tried uploading photos of the black backgrounds in question but the upload wheel just kept spinning. The photo size was within accepted parameter. Also, I tried to check the box "Email me when someone answers the thread" but that wouldnt work either.
