I am updated to the latest Firefox. Every time I close Firefox out and then come back, it does the whole new update spiel all over again and I have to go through it and get rid of that new little weird tab thingy. If it was a one time thing, there'd be no problem but this happens EVERY SINGLE TIME since the last update. What do I do?

I use to have Firefox setup to always show twitch channels in English speaking only, but I recently reset Firefox and now I cannot seem to find out how to get the twitch channels to only show English speaking people. This was not a twitch thing, as I only changed Firefox. the word English always showed up right under the picture of a group of channels. as the picture shows I now have all the different languages in the same window and I have to type the word English in every time I run the browser which is multiple times a day.

This is not the setting (See 2nd picture of that area) that you see in settings for Firefox, as I have tried that and it does not change it.

How do I set this up again? I cannot find the setting for this anywhere on Firefox or Twitch.

Any thoughts?

Garbled font in Firefox on macOS Monterey (12.6.1)

Hello :)

I'm using Firefox 107.0 on macOS 12.6.1 and I'm having weird issues with the displayed font. It appears on the startup screen of Firefox and on websites (see screenshots attached).

The garbled font is called ".SF NS".

I've tried turning the option "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" on and off without success.

I have also tried enabling and disabling hardware acceleration - also without luck.

The issue does **not** appear in safe mode. Unfortunately resetting the theme and disabling all extensions hasn't helped either :(

I have also downloaded and installed a font called "SFNS Display" but the issue persists.

Uninstalling Firefox (with AppCleaner) and reinstalling hasn't fixed the problem.

I don't know what else to try. Can someone help me please? :)

Explore possibilities of using System Theme 1.0 in Firefox 91.9.1esr and later.

After moving to Firefox 91.9.1esr I found problem with System theme 1.2. The color of tab add button was changed, and the button is not visible with my Windows 7 classic windows system theme. So, I'm trying to find a way to port System theme 1.0 color scheme to newer firefox versions.

Creation of a simple theme with firefox color extension works. But it is unable to recreate the effects related to active and inactive window color changes. As, I had to use bitmap to get the OS blue color transition pattern.

It seems the system theme is stored in omni.ja file. Modification of the omni.ja seems to be not a practical solution. So, it would be a better way to create an addon theme with the same code as the System Theme 1.0.

The first question is, if it will be possible to create a theme with the same code as a system theme has. Will it be able to perform the same way?

The next question is: Where the source code of the system theme is? I was unable to find it in the Firefox source. It seems, it is not stored in any obvious location.

All of a sudden I can't get into my Ally accounts from Firefox. I get logged in and then am repeatedly told: "We’re not able to show your accounts right now. Try again later, or call us for help. Bank Accounts: 1-877-247-2559 We’re here 24/7" I called Ally and they said it is likely my browser. So I tried Microsoft Edge and was able to get into my account without a problem. I am totally frustrated and ready to stop using Mozilla unless this can be fixed. I see other people have had this problem but don't see a solution anywhere. I tried the suggested work around (troubleshoot mode off) and it didn't work either.

When installing Firefox, there is an option to import data from another browser. That feature is also available in the "Library -> Import and Backup -> Import data from Another Browser", and it imports things like Bookmarks and History from another browsers.

As the functionality already exists, is it possible to use that functionality in any way to import Bookmarks and History from a different profile in the same Firefox installation? I want to merge 2 different browsing history (like the old question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/928204), and looks like using the "Import data from Another Browser" could help if it's possible to use it with another Firefox profile/directory.

Hi,

I am currently working on a privacy study regarding Mozilla Firefox and I would like to have more detailed information on key log file using per-session secrets.

I used SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable from underlying NSS library to get TLS session secrets [1], which can be used in Wireshark to decrypt HTTPS traffic. I looked at Firefox documentation for some answers and I found that NSS support for logging file is disabled by default since NSS 3.24 [2], that-is to say Firefox 48 and 49 [3]. I do not have found any documentation saying it has been re-enabled by default since then. However, I have made some tests on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (it is disabled on Debian) and Windows 10 using Firefox 106 (NSS 3.83) [4] and it works properly.

So, I have two questions : - Is it normal that this feature still works for decrypting traffic whereas it should be disabled by default ? - What is the position of Mozilla developers and the community on the security of this feature (anyone who have access to someone computer could get all of their internet passwords) ?

Thank you for your reading and I am looking forward to reading your answer.

Best regards
