Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 103.0.1 Private Browsing Mode ('Never Remember History' is set)

What I Do:

-'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.' -When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely). -The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset. -This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26 (Before this time, clicking 'Clear Data' reset the KB to 0 without having to close and reopen the browser first, without having to 'refresh' the page after clearing the cache, and without having to restart the computer first.

Someone stated that PB mode has be left temporarily and clear the disk cache in 'Regular Mode' by choosing 'Custom Setting For History' and removing the check-mark beside 'Always use Private Browsing mode.

1. I do not see the option Always use Private Browsing mode..' 2. Am I performing these steps before a 'session' is started 'OR' after a session (but before closing the browser?). 3: Do the above steps have to be performed after 'every 'session is ended or only the first time that the 'session' is ended? A:

All of this unnecessary 'effort' just to clear 100% of the disk cache, after every session, that should be as simple as clicking 'Clear Data.'

HELP!

I've worked with Firefox for several years, and had it opening maximized. I recently manually resized the Firefox window to facilitate some work in which I needed some other windows visible. However, now I can't get Firefox to open maximized. Instead, it opens a window going from the left edge of my screen (see the first image below) about a third of the width of the monitor, and it is showing the double box icon in the upper right corner indicating that the computer "thinks" it is in full screen. If I click that double box, the window immediately shifts to the right edge of the screen, occupying a space about a third of the monitor from the right edge, and shows a single box in the upper right corner of the window. If I click that single box, the window finally does expand to full screen, showing a double box in the upper right corner. I've tried all the manipulations I've seen concerning starting screen size (such as going to the shortcut icon properties and indicating the that the program should start "maximized") but I'm still getting this same behavior. Any thoughts? (I'm running Windows 11, with the latest version of Firefox.)

Longtime user of Firefox for online banking bill pay. Latest update broke bill pay by disabling date to pay a bill.

At bank I select vendor to pay, chose calendar to select date and now the cursor should turn to a 'hand icon' when hovering over date. It will not allow me to select a date to pay the bill. The cursor changes to a hand icon if I hover over past dates or day of week but not the date I want to pay the bill.

To make sure it isn't my bank's problem I logged on with Chrome and everything works as normal.

This was tested twice two weeks apart. For now I cannot use Firefox to pay bills.

Hope taking time to post this to Support will result in a response acknowledging problem and solution.

Thanks, Larry

Every 15 minutes or so, Firefox quits working. It won't send e-mail, let me move or delete a message, and shows all my files are empty. I have to shut it down and reboot it to get my browser to work again, and then everything's fine for a few more minutes, then it crashes again.

What's wrong, and how do I fix it?

I am on a 2018 Intel Mac Mini running macOS Catalina 10.15.7. After updating to 103, Firefox no longer shows any content on Google related pages (search, Gmail, etc.). The pages load but no text is visible, only images.

I've tried everything from clearing all caches and browsing history, to going into about:config and changing the sandbox settings. Not sure what else to do as I've been primarily using Firefox for years but these issues have only surfaced after the last couple of updates.

Before I updated to FF 103.0.1, links I clicked on in e-mails in Outlook would open in an FF window using my existing default profile. Since updating to FF 103.0.1, these links open in an FF window with a virgin profile. If no such window was already open (from clicking on another e-mail link) this will be a new FF window, even if FF was already open with my normal profile. As a result, e-mail links to PDFs open the files directly in FF (instead of asking me where to download them to, as I have configured in my profile) and I am missing my stored passwords when the links lead to websites that require login.

This is a real PITA! Is there anything I can do other than revert to an earlier FF version? Please help!

I am running Windows 10 2021H2.

For maybe a month or two I have been seeing some strange behavior with Firefox closing after I close a downloaded file. Here are some examples.

Lets say I am checking my email (yahoo) and receive a video file attachment. I launch the attachment which is set ot download and automatically open my player, which is VLC. VLC launches and plays as normal. When I finish, I close VLC and find that a few seconds later my Firefox window or tab also closes.

This is not just with video files and not just from email. Same for doc files or pdf or jpg files. If it downloads and then I open it through Firefox, that tab closes once I close the third-party program.

I also tried turning off the auto-launch and just download the files, but if I start them form the downloads display in Firefox the same issue occurs. If I start explorer and browse to downloads and just launch it from there then there are no such issues.

I did notice that it only closes one tab, so if I have a dummy second tab, when the tab is closed I can use Ctrl+Shift+T to restore the previous window and continue, but it has gotten tedious to do that every time I download a file.

I did check that neither Chrome of Edge do not have such behavior.

System details. Firefox 103, Windows 10 21H2. No known major updates or changes have been made to the system to cause this change. The only extension I have is Ublock Origin, and I have tried disabling it but it did not help the problem.

Hello! I switched to firefox a few months ago. It worked okay with my rollo printer (printing mailing labels) for awhile, but it's suddenly not working right. Labels print off at strange sizes and with garbled images and text. It works fine if I print from chrome or from my desktop; just not from the firefox browser. I'm wondering if there was an update recently that broke it and I'm really hoping it can be fixed, because I'd like to keep using this but I run a business and it's far too irritating to have to keep switching to chrome to print stuff... I also am positive this is a firefox issue because my partner is suddenly experiencing the same issue after switching from chrome.

Use hardware acceleration is unchecked and my graphics driver is up to date. If Microsoft Edge works why doesn't Firefox?

Hi, I created a sign in to a particular account for a website using FF about a year ago & used it several times without issue. I haven't used it in about 6 months & now when I try to sign in, nothing happens. The mouse pointer turns to a pointing hand when I hover over the sign in, but that's it, the tab doesn't refresh & no new tab is opened. It doesn't look like FF recognizes this as a link.

When I right click on other links I get the option to: Open Link in New Tab Open Link in New Window etc...

but when I right click on this link causing me issues, I get: Save page as... Save Page to Device etc...

It is as though FF doesn't see this as a valid link. I'm using Windows 10 64 bit & FF version 103.0.1 & have FF set to automatic update.

I've run FF in safe mode & no change, suggesting it's not my add-ons.I've Googled the problem & seen examples of what look similar, but no solution seems to work. In particular I've tried the suggestions from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can but none helped.

I don't have any issues with this link in other browsers. Chrome opens it up in an instant & I'm wondering whether it would be just easier switching to Chrome as my default.

I'd love to stick to FF as my default, can anyone help?

Google Searches in Firefox Repeating Itself

There is this weird bug(?) that popped up like within a day or so. When searching for some terms with Google in Firefox, the search result would repeat itself. For example, searching for terms like "ab", "abc", or "hgi" would result in two searches, but not "def". So let's say if I search for "ab" twice, I would get 4 search histories of "ab".

One curious thing I noticed is that if I already have a non-blank tab opened before the search, going back to it and then going forward to any search that would repeat itself would prompt it to produce two search histories again. The problem to this is that if there were other searches further up the tab's histories (I usually search for multiple things within the same tab), they would essentially be lost (I turned off search and form history) when the search repeated itself, since it would act like I made a new search of the same term.

I have updated the Firefox browser to the latest stable version 103.0.1, and the problem persists. I tried to replicate this on Chrome to no avail. It's irking me to no end, so any help is much appreciated.

I've been using Firefox for 25+ years, always keeping it up to date. I've been a customer of CIBC Bank for 20+ years and using their online website since its beginning. Last week I've been unable to login to my accounts without going thru an inconvenient and time-consuming telephone code procedure every time. Previously, this procedure had been in place only occasionally as a secondary method of identification.

CIBC advised changing my anti-tracking and cookie settings. After trying all the alternatives, there was no change. Checked out Edge browser, and it was the same. Checked out Firefox and Edge on a second computer and it was the same. Installed the Chrome browser, and it works fine!

No problems accessing any other website. Anyone ever experienced this? Any suggestions?
