Hi Everyone, For personal reasons I run FF version 72.0.2. I have a subscription to Britbox (UK) which has run without difficulty for two years now --- until recently, when it stopped for no apparent reason and displayed the error message shown in the attached image. Britbox Tech Support is, to say the least - useless, and I have been unable to extract anything useful from them for the past few weeks. Today, however, I got a (speculative) message saying that if I upgraded my FF version to the latest - things would be fine again. Strange, as they have been insisting I change to Chrome until today. Can anyone support their advice? i.e. Is there anything in version upgrades from 72.0.2 which might have affected viewing? Thank you. Ian

Can't access Google Features Normaly. Only in Private Windows. (89.0.2)

Hi Everyone,

I have seen another posts like this but the solution of them are not working for me.

The thing is that I'm not able to enter any Google features: Gmail, Drive, Keep, Maps, etc. on my Mozilla Firefox 89.0.2 (64-bit). Windows 10.

Let me explain the whole process:

All began when, out of nowhere, it started to give me TLS incompatibility errors. After a lot of working around (uninstalling, cleaning cache, history, cookies, troubleshooting/resetting), know I'm able to type my account and login to google, but when I click any icon (gmail, drive, keep, etc) the browser do nothing. It just stay there.

If I try to login on Yahoo email, I get this message: "To protect your security, www.google.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window." and when I hit "open in new window", the new windows opens in blank.

I'm able to use any Google products on a Private Windows (ctrl+shift+p). Also on M. Edge. iexplorer and Chrome.

What I have done:

  • Uninstall Mozilla Firefox
  • Deleting all remaining files and registries
  • install mozilla firefox fresh downloaded
  • Refreshing Firefox on troubleshoot mode
  • Restarting windows obviously, many times
  • Uninstall firefox completely and installing an older version (88). Did not worked.
  • Upgrading from 88 to 89.0.2
  • Verifying and disabling plugins (all versions)
  • Uninstalled Chrome, then Firefox, then reinstalling Firefox after a windows restart.
  • Uninstall Mozilla Firefox, restarting PC, reinstalled Firefox, all under Windows Safe Mode.
  • All of the above using a new windows administrator account.
  • All of the above using a domain administrator account.

I'm almost throwing the towel and using another browser and I don't want it. I have been using firefox since the beginning of times... home, office, everywhere.

Please help!

Regards,

Hi, I am designing a website for viewing photos like pay per view system. When an user push the shortcut CTRL+S, is there a fonctionnality to disable the media storage by permissions for example? I have tried to disable indirectly with keypress event listener but it seems there is a browser privilege for his shortcuts. More, what are the fonctionnalities you provide to help webdesigners to secure their websites? I understand and I agree about the work you make for users against tracking and for confidentiallity on the web. Regards, Thierry Lacouloumere

I want the home page to be blank when I open the browser, I want the home button to a URL. This was possible in older versions, and when you then updated the browser it maintained this difference - if it was already set. I did that once but I don't remember how far back on versions that is an option. Is it possible to do this in 89? If not, how far back should I go to install, make my home page and home button settings, then update to the current version. Then we're all good.

If you could supply a link to the correct FF file (windows 10, 64bit) that would be even more good.

thanks

After updating to v.89 with new UI, i no longer can close tabs by clicking mousewheel while coursor is on the tab I intend to close. No setting for middle-click was found in the menus.

How do I restore old behaviour on Firefox 89? For now, downgrading version seems like the only option.

I don't like the "last folder" bookmarks location. This does not work with my browsing/bookmarking workflow. (I just end up with Tab Groups nested in the wrong folder rather than chronologically).

Can I restore the save location "Other Bookmarks" as the default folder?

This poster in [JAN 2021] seems to think not:

"In Firefox 85+ always the last used folder is selected, so if you do not want this behavior then you still have to select another folder each time you create a new bookmark."
