I am using firefox on a debian installation base: $ firefox-esr --version Mozilla Firefox 91.13.0esr $ uname -a Linux debian 5.10.0-18-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.140-1 (2022-09-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux $

These days web pages come with all kinds of cr@p; so, at times you need to just get all the links inside the page to parse/eyeball them. What I do is grab the "page source" and/or use "Link Gopher". I have been noticing lately that they don't work anymore. Why?
The problem seems to relate to javascript generated pages. When you try to see the source all you see is some javascript one liner.
Of course, firefox must have a way to show the source since it shows to you the actual page unencrypted.
Which settings in about:config should you change in order to be able to "go to the source" again?

Firefox keeps pinning ads for random pages that I have never visited. It happens inconsistently, but sometimes when I open Firefox there will be a random ad page pinned. Even if I unpin it, and reopen Firefox the same ad page will be pinned again. I have tried looking it up in settings but could find anything, that make it pop up.

I enjoy Firefox, however I've recently realized that hackers are using the Firefox browser to attack and enter my system, despite a firewall and VPN and even in private browser. I've been forced to cease use of the Firefox browser and decided to bring this to your attention after realizing that this surely will become widespread if not already. Is Firefox aware of such attacks and if so what are you doing about it and when do you think I will be able to safely use your browser again? Also I'm open to explore any suggested setting that may help with the security of your browser. Thanks.

I have Firefox set to "view PDF files in Firefox", but this is not happening with sites like Capital One and Consumer's Energy. these sites are just saving directly to my downloads folder even though I 1) Want to view the file first and 2) if it is going to save a flle, it is set up to ask where the file should be saved.

Neither of these things are happening even though I have them set up correctly in Settings.

With increasing frequency, when I attempt to load a website -- well-established ones that I've had bookmarked for years -- I initially get one of two messages: either the site I'm about to go to is unsecure (http) or that the web address isn't recognized.

Yet, in the first case, when I go to the "unsecured" site anyway, it is in fact a secure (https) site.

And in the second case, if I hit the option to "try again", it connects instantly.

What's going on here? BTW, this happens whether I'm using a VPN or not. And sometimes it doesn't happen at all.

Thanks for any help.

Firefox won't stay my default browser. Every time I sign on after rebooting MS changes the default to I don't know what. It doesn't say what is the default. It wants edge I guess but I deleted the entire edge app and all its dlls. So how do I make the choice through the "set defaults" settings permanent?

Targets Red Card, Credit Card, has a login problem which does not occur in Google Chrome. The problem seems to be connected with the sensitivity of the input fields for user-ID and Password. After I fill them in or let Firefox password history fill them in, clicking on Sign-in button erases both fields and goes nowhere. https://rcam.target.com. Been like that for a year. Win 10 latest updates 2H22, removing all add-ons makes no difference. No, I will not reset my Firefox, I have stopped doing the work that was supposed to be done by programmers. You might want to also make it known that stores, banks, and other institutions should double check their work because several major companies like American Express has a non focused security code field for two step logins. The default should be to place the cursor in the input field for the code and make it active. They do not do this.
