Firefox Blocking Allowed Pop-Ups After Update

We run Firefox on all our clerk computers at the public library where I work. Since the most recent update, our online circulation website which we use to check out books, receives a pop-up blocked message every time we try to print a hold receipt for an item. The website has always been added as an exception to our pop-up blockers, and until just after the most recent update, the blocker had no problem allowing the website through. Now it does. I have tried clearing the browser caches, removing and adding the website to the exceptions list again, and restarting the browser, as well as adding different variations of the website to the exceptions list. In the end, we just had to turn the pop-up blockers off. I searched online for anyone else who had this issue, but the ones I found dated back to 2014-2015, and the solution they came up with no longer seems to exist in the Firefox settings. So I'm hoping to find an answer here! Thanks.

Pop-up window not showing on website

I go to my bank's website and try to sign on. There is one box for my ID. When I click on it, an option my my saved ID shows up and my saved ID is populated in the box. That's it (see picture 1). There should be ANOTHER box for my password, but it doesn't show up.

If I use MS Edge, I go to the website and click on the sign-in box. A pop-up appears with 2 boxes, one for my ID and the other for my password (see picture 2). This is how it USED to work in Firefox, but it hasn't for a good month.

I use Privacy Badger, Ghostery, and BitDefender Anti-tracking on this site. They are all turned off and I still have problems. Also, I have the "Block pop-up windows" box UNCHECKED in Permissions.

How do I get back the previous setup?

Firefox version 87.0 (64 bit).

When I type in ANY URL, I want exactly that to be loaded. And not anything else.

When I type in mozilla.rog into the address bar, I want firefox to fetch the page mozilla.rog. I want firefox to try, and if it does not exist, I demand to be notified that it does not exist. With an error message. URL not found. Error 404.

But instead, Firefox silently changes mozilla.rog to mozilla.org (and probably any page e.g. from .rog to .org, and from .ocm to .com , and the like) without my permission, and loads this other page I did not type in.

I do NOT and NEVER allow ANY program to alter my commands without notifying me.

so... which about:config setting disables this autocorrection-behavior?

Hi, folks. Firefox (87.0) has just started blocking my popups on gmail even though I have an exception for mail.google.com. (I can no longer compose/edit a message in a new window, for example.) - I can't choose to "allow popups for mail.google.com," as that option is grayed out (likely since I already have that exception in place), and if I choose to "show" the window, it isn't functional (just blank). - I tried starting in Firefox Safe Mode (extensions disabled) and have the same trouble. -If I edit my popup blocker settings so that I'm not blocking _any_ popups, this does resolve the problem: gmail functions as it should. But of course I'd prefer to have a popup blocker in place for other sites. I welcome any wisdom. Thanks!

I have been using Firefox for years. I recently decided to tinker around a little with private browsing. I had my laptop and phone sync'd. Within the last 10 days or so I have been restricted to only accessing my bank using private browsing. I have been online with my bank to try and resolve, to no avail. I have added exceptions for all the cookies, pop up windows etc for my bank and still nothing. I have disabled the syncing and still nothing. My bank said they have had some communications issues with Firefox...I tried to login with Chrome and sailed right into my bank account. I really don't want to have to use another browser to access my bank.

Below is the error I get. Please help!! its truly a hassle to HAVE to use private browsing for 1 item.

Today I found out that Many apps on my system work in the background and slowing down my machine. I enlisted the consulting assistants of an expert and was told that the biggest are Adobe and Microsoft. I had a cleaning done to my system and the results were amazing. I disable Apps I didn't need, uninstall App I did not use in a long time and disable services that did not provided me with any substantive experience or improvement in productivity. The results were amazing. My system was running faster than I have ever seen it run, including the first year after I purchase it. Well, about 2 hours later, I got this notification from Microsoft saying that I have to enable these optional services because Edge would make it better for me to serve the web and have a custom experience and get tailored adds based on my activity. If I had a choice I would pick No Adds. After I read their notification that I had difficulty reading and understanding little of it, I felt pressure to signed up with Edge as my browser. These services were eating my resources like there was no tomorrow and were effecting my productivity level. Microsoft's notification included a screen shot of the changes I did today in my settings with the disable buttons in Privacy and Personalization areas. I have all the required setting about diagnostics, etc. enabled, is there anything I can do to prevent them from using me like a cheap prostitute? Can they shot my account down for that? Is there any other OS providers I could get?

Firefox Firstly, let me start by acknowledging the wonderful work the team of volunteers do to in producing an FREE excellent browser for which I have been a fan since your inception. However, unfortunately Firefox has been caught up in the hysteria of the planet over security issues with the Internet.

Undoubtedly there are such issues, just as they currently are with Covid 19 such issues, but the solution to Covid 19 is not to carpet bomb the whole of the planet - but, in actual fact that is what Firefox is now doing with websites security.

I build websites for a hobby and currently have published about 50 over the last 20 years , many of those are informational only sites. So, there is no exchange of data, so no avenue for any security breach or for damage to be done to either my website any visitors computer or the server upon which my websites resolves.

My first website was published in 1998 even way back then we all knew that you approached any website with caution. However with a bit of due diligence it was possible to make a reasonable judgement as to the nature of validity of the website and those that constituted some risk and those that constituted none.

One of the websites I publish is goofygoogle.com. I have had this website since I purchased the domain in 2001. The website is informational only, however despite the fact it has been around for that period of time and you can find out who the domain owner in any WHOIS search, for the first time ever Firefox is now telling their browser user/visitors “Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead”.

This, is in spite of the fact there is NO potential security risk 'Ahead' -AT ALL, in visiting this site.

Can we please wind back the hysteria or egotism or whatever else is the basis for this overreaction OR if we don’t want to do that, can we please get even smarter so that we actually can interrogate the site properly to determine if there actually is a “Potential Security Risk Ahead” before we ‘slander’ it?

I’m in your hands

Thank you

Hello,

I like Firefox unfortunately all browsers are so 1999... It is impossible to use without addons, if you browser internet a lot and have opened a lot of tabs and windows. I bumped into this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1155401 Saying: this will open another instance of Firefox. But nothing is bulletproof! So ask, if this will isolate me from addons, which I would open in first instance of Firefox.

Thanks for help.
