Anything selected after the initial JetBlue page, just turns the screen a little bit darker for awhile, but no browser movement at all. Opening the same page on Chrome, and it works fine. Thanks.

I use Firefox in private browsing by default. However, that means that I always have to login to any website, which can be a pain.

I was wondering if there is some middle ground. For example, if I could whitelist cookies from a specific domain to persist across private mode sessions or to be imported from non-private browsing. I am aware that I could be tracked by those domains, but that is a compromise I'm happy with.

When I type a link or open links in new tabs the tabs just appear blank. On youtube videos can be heard in the background but the page itself doesn't show anything. On twitter, instead of blank white, it has the blue twitter tint on the page but otherwise the page is still blank. Refreshing doesn't seem to do anything. Sometimes the page loads after copying and pasting the link in a new tab after 1 or 2 new tab attempts.

I've searched forums and tried reloading with add-ons disabled, tried reinstalling, but nothing helps. Once I have four tabs open, it won't load more. The tab shows my destination address in the address bar, but just spools and won;t load. No error message. I suspect it's something to do with the latest update (I think installed last week?), but am not sure.

I would like to know why firefox no longer respects the preference choice of the users, for more than 3 months I have always configured my searches for google inside the browser, but every time I closed or even reset the firefox search again in yahoo or such a chill ... I know it what ... just one question, are you making money, being sponsored by these two search engines to be boycotting the users' preference? This is getting annoying not to say ridiculous ... take some kind of attitude and respect our preferences! I like the functions of firefox, but this way I will have to use another as a default browser, as well as speak very poorly of this type of disrespect! I await a return with a position.

simple is better. can this be done in firefox?

There is something hacking and opening up site to download a virus/malware program which I never download. This only happens when I am using firefox - no other browser. I have tried uninstalling firefox and reinstalling twice. it still happens. I have macafee and Malware software active. Sometimes one or both block it but not always and it still keeps happening. It doesn't let me take screen shot when it opens I want to keep using firefox but if I can't stop this I will have to stop using it.

FF 65.0 for Mac, can't download > 1 book from forum.mobilism.org using their premium downloader, reverted to 64.0.2 works fine again, back to 65.0 no/go again.

I'm a Premium member of forum.mobilism.org. When my Firefox for Mac auto-upgraded to 65.0 I could only download one book from the website, but could no longer download any others using the Premium downloader. If I download without the Premium downloader it'll download but it's a real PIA, that's why I pay for Premium. I reverted back to 64.0.2 and all was well. Thus, I went and changed the Firefox setting to always ask me about updating. Despite that it updated automatically the next time I used it. Same Premium downloading problem with mobilism, which downgrading to 64.0.2 solved once again.

With 65.0 in Mobilism, I'm never given the option to download the second time, the downloading box just locks up. I tried disabling all ad and content blockers, as well as my script blocker, and everything I could think of with no change.

Clipboard API only support writeText and not readText for web content. I believe this is "feature". However in Chromium there is pop-up asking for permissions, which sounds like much better option. Is there any way how to get permissions and use clipboard fully? Documentation mentions something about getting permissions, but I was never successful with it - is it possible or is it only for extensions?

Can a 303 response be exposed to the javascript layer?

When making an ajax request and a response code of 303 is returned, the browser automatically redirects to the uri provided in the Location header without notifying the javascript layer. This make sense for thing like a 301 or 302. But in the RFC-2616 it states "The new URI is not a substitute reference for the originally requested resource."

As such, to me it doesn't make sense that if I request resource A, that I will be given resource B without any way of knowing that my request for resource A redirected to resource B. Instead I feel that after resource A returns a 303, I should be given the option to intercept it and decide if I want to retrieve resource B. I don't have a problem with the default being automatically following, but I think I should be able to checkout the situation and make a decision here since we are talking about 2 different resources which are not substitutes.

Periodically, every three/four months, on my wife's Lenovo computer with Windows 10 Firefox has the following problem; she opens it but the Firefox window doesn't appear on the screen. Firefox is open but is not visible. I usually uninstall it and reinstall it for her and everything works fine for a few months, then the same problem. I've seen complicated solutions on now closed questions, but I'm just wondering why this happens at periodical intervals. She's not very good with computers and if no one's around her to help her it's a problem. Is there no very easy solution for this? Can't you create an app to download that automatically solves the problem? Thanks Gianmaria A Firefox fan since 2004.

Greetings,

I've noticed that at times there's blank space on the left side of the pinned tabs but other times not. Is this a bug or by design?

This seems to occur at random with regular browsing but I haven't found what consistently causes it. I can repro by checking the Menu Bar on and off. When the Menu Bar is on, the blank space goes away.

I'm attempting to upload screenshots but the tool is timing out on me.

Thanks!

Firefox won't let siriusxm music player open on the computer. This only started happening on Dec. 15, worked fine on Dec. 10, 2018. I'm running Firefox Quantum 64.0, says it's up to date. I've tried turning off ad blocker and allowing pop-ups, neither changed anything. In my address bar I have the grey lock with the yellow triangle icon.

any ideas? Thanks.
