I use Dashlane to securely log into websites. When I click go to the website, Dashlane populates the search bar with the URL. When Dashlane populates the searchbar with one specific URL https:// is added to the front of the URL. Of course this breaks the login. I have to manually edit the URL to remove the https:// and then press enter to load the URL. I have searched for hours and every solution all the way back to 2012 fails to resolve the problem. Please tell me how to resolve this.

AMAC (Association of Mature American Citizens) publishes a compendium of articles which are emailed to its membership. Each mailing contains a brief outline of several articles and links to those articles. A sample of the compendium may be accessed at the following link:

https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/1/messages/ADLT61oJh8E3YvqSbAIXKGeDHxg?.intl=us&.partner=sbc&.lang=en-US

The problem is that attempting to link to any of the articles results in a message : "invalid request". It is easy to see why the request is invalid, since part of the address is missing. For example when I try to open the first article, this is all that seems to get transmitted:

https://content.amac.us/?fopZ8SKvOHN.khHt8p1u4oaGdSIeSdDVf= I don't think an address can end in =. Also when I use other browsers, such as MS Edge, the complete address is accessed and the articles open properly.

So I'm wondering if this is a programing glitch or a censorship issue on the part of Mozilla. I have used Firefox for years with no problem, including accessing the AMAC articles. This is a recent problem. AMAC's newsletter is the only issue I have with Firefox.

Hello,

Since the last update, I've been having an issue where after about an hour or two of using firefox (it varies), video players on some websites will stop working. I've noticed that Tumblr and TikTok's video players are affected by this. Restarting firefox fixes it, but it's very annoying to restart firefox every couple of hours, and seems like a problem.

The following things didn't fix it: clearing my cache, disabling my addons one by one, turning off hardware acceleration, trying to watch the video in a private window, or reinstalling firefox. I don't know what's left to try.

Please advise, thank you!

Hi,

     I have a web site that displays differently with the Firefox browser.

IE & Google Chrome display OK. The links on my pages show up with a small letter "a" either in front or after the hyperlink. I'll try to attach a screen shot. Is there a setting in Firefox that will get rid of that issue ? Thanks for any help,

Recently unable to initiate Facebook Messenger Voice Chat via FB website in Firefox

For the past few weeks I've been using Facebook's voice chat function to stay in touch with family. I did this using a dual boot laptop with, Ubuntu Linux 20.04.4 and Firefox 103, and Windows 10 with Firefox 101.1. I use the linux side 99.9% of the time.

I'd initiate a call by clicking on the FB Messenger icon, clicking on the name of the person I wanted to talk with, then clicking on the small phone handset icon. This would bring up a popup window with a picture of the other person, and the sound of a phone ringing followed by the other person answering my call.

This stopped working late last week (Thursday Aug 11th, I believe). Instead of a popup with the ringing phone, I began getting a popup with the message "Something went wrong. Try restarting Firefox or restarting your computer. For more troubleshooting suggestions, visit our Help Center. If the issue persists please let us know." I've attached a screenshot of the message.

This led me to a series of troubleshooting steps with no success: - clearing my browser cache and cookies - made sure my microphone was available for FB to use and was not muted - rebooting my laptop - doing a Firefox "Refresh", which creates a new Firefox profile while removing browser extensions and customizations - logging into a 2nd seldom used linux account I have on the same laptop and trying to initiate a voice chat in Firefox (no luck) - dual booting to Windows 10 and trying it with Firefox 101.1 (no success) - I also tried this on an older desktop pc running Ubuntu 16.04 and Firefox 88 (!). Also, no success and the exact same message as seen in the screenshot.

What I can also tell you is that in Linux I was able to initiate a FB voice chat call using the Brave and Chrome browsers, and in Windows was able to successfully initiate a call using MS Edge and Brave.

Based on this, it seems to be either a Firefox issue, or the nice folks at FB changed something that trips up only Firefox. Again, other browsers on two different OS platforms and a separate computer allow me to make these voice calls without issue.

I'd be glad to provide more information if you need it. I apologize if this was long winded, but I wanted to share as much detail as I could. Thank you very much for your time, and don't hesitate to contact me if I can provide any further information.

In the Flatpak version of Firefox 103.0.2 the resize handles do not appear when you hover over any of the 4 edges of the firefox window unless you hold down the left mouse button, then they appear, but you have to get the mouse pointer just right before pressing the left mouse button.

Hi Firefox

For the past few updates you have changed your user interface (UI) from time to time and I have to say I am not really a fan of any of the new ones. However, it was once possible to get some add ons like "classic theme restorer 1.4.5" to restore the older more compact and efficient look of firefox. However, I can't find any of those sort of add ons anymore and trying to manually change the look, revert settings and so many more options suggested on the internet is clunky, inefficient and quite frustrating to try and make work.

Is there any way to revert the UI back to a more classic look like in Firefox 89 (or the one from the verison attached in the image) rather than these newer "messy" ones, or will you hopefullt implement a function in the future where one can select an older UI for the browser? I can see from forums, discussions and more online that I am not the only one who wishes there was a way to get an older UI back as the newer ones, in my opinion are no way near as good as the older ones.

Hope you can help with this

Best Regards Klaus
