How to remove duplicated entries in history only differenced by URI fragment

When navigating in some pages, specially in google docs, the browser's URI fragment (the part after the #) changes frequently for each page/header/slide, and all of them are stored in the history.

That behavior adds lots of entries in the history and also hinders the usage of the search functionality of the address bar (as all the duplicates are shown instead of shown only one and other pages). I want to keep one entry per document, at least in specific pages like gdocs where the "fragment" doesn't add any useful information and each document can have lots of them.

Is there any way to configure that behavior, to not save every fragment in the history?


To reproduce the above behavior (the same behavior happens in other pages, not only gdocs):

- Open any gdocs document with several headers, or a gdocs presentation with several pages. - Navigate all the document/presentation, and check the history. - Close the document/presentation tab/window. - In a new window/tab, use the address bar to search the document/presentation by the document name: several entries for the same document/presentation are shown (and if they are lots of them, no other different entries with same words are shown in the address bar). - Check also the history: several entries of the same document/presentation are shown (it could be hundreds for long documents, and thousands after seen few documents).

I really want to keep all my tabs and have this setting on but its disabled. I was configurating this pc via "privasy.sexy" scripts and my best guess is that "disable telemetry" setting which you can see on second screenshot is the cause. But maybe you are familiar with this situaton and know th real reason.

I know the sc i provided are in polish but above the disabled startup settings there is an information that another organisation is in charge of my browser.

Thanks for your work and let me know if there are any fxes. ^^

Hello there! I have a strange issue where only the URL changes when I press the back button, it seems to happen randomly, but it isn't only happening to me, I was in a discord call yesterday when I saw it happen for my friend too.

Hi,

 I've just spent an annoyingly long time trying to do something that turned out to be really easy, it was just finding out what to do that made it seem hard.
 The issue of where search results open is completely ignored in the help pages, judging from the number of questions in Support on the issue, that appears to be something of an oversight. As does not displaying the date questions were posted, reading about what applies in an old verion of Ff may not do so in the current one, it didn't in my case.
 I wanted to know how to make the search results from Google on the search bar, open in a new tab, as opposed to the same tab, the current default setting. All it takes is changing the value of: browser.link.open_newwindow, from false to true in about:config.
 Simple to do, finding out that's what you have to do, isn't. 
 I thought I'd suggest that you might consider addressing this matter, I'm sure it would be welcomed by at least some users.
 Anyway, thank you for a great browser.

Remember search and form history. This setting always resets to false after the latest two FireFox updates and I need to enable it again.

After logging out and back in the setting is disabled again. I've removed all plugins and extensions I've added and the issue persists.

I've tried Places Database : Verify Integrity but the issue persists on very Restart or loggin. In the past I've even removed FireFox with a 3rd party uninstaller to remove all remnants of FF but, as a very long term user of FF (right from the early Win XP days), this issue pops up from time to time and it's really starting to become extremely annoying.

Apart from Refreshing FF or the total nuke and reinstall option, what else can be done to stop this issue?

Thanks.

Hello there!

I am a web developer and recently we built a website using wordpress. Specifically in this page https://jaotc.eu/jatc-participants/jatc-participants-jatc2/ there is an issue with the participants not showing/loading. I exclusively use Firefox for development and had no issues so far but this problem only exists in Firefox. I tried edge and chrome and the page works fine.

Maybe it has to do with some kind of compatibility with the wordpress theme or wordpress itself. If you would like to check it out and see if there is a general fix that has to be applied.

Thank you in advance!

So, I am a Linux user who is used to shell commands like mv or cp. One of their feature is absence of prompts like "Are you sure what you want to replace foo.txt?". Because I have somewhat organized fs, I always know what that file is for and if I can overwrite it.


Now I have to download some files, what I need only for uploading onto another website / reading them once. So, I just download them into my /tmp folder and save them under the same name (so I could just repeat cat command and reduce clutter). But each time I download a file Firefox asks for confirmation to replace my existing file. Are there any config flags to disable those annoying prompts?

Dear team I'm trying to use firefox to connect OWA on an Exchange server where Extended Protection (EP) is configured. OWA website is configured to use basic and windows authentication. When EP is off, it works fine, meaning it connects automatically. When EP is set to require, then I get a credential prompt, that loops prompting me for the credentials Strange thing is if the 1st time I get prompted I press Escape key, and at the 2nd prompt I enter my credentials, then I connect the webmail.

These settings were configured in the about:config with the webmail URL "network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris" "network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris" "network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris" and this one "signon.autologin.proxy" has been set to true

If I use Chrome or Edge, I do not face this issue I found this website https://www.synacktiv.com/en/publications/dissecting-ntlm-epa-with-love-building-a-mitm-proxy.html which seems to explain the issue I'm facing but it talks about Firefox v93.

Anyone knows how to fix this issue?
