https://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback/firefox/40.0/#moreinfo

does not load. I can enter the info/feedback but when I click submit, I get a blank page.

for example, this page will not load:

http://www.allmusic.com/artist/rick-astley-mn0000354722/songs but the page that links to it: http://www.allmusic.com/artist/MN0000354722/biography

loads just fine.

XMarks is closing. Eversync is unreliable. So the only sync in town for Firefox users is Firefox Sync.

That makes it a shame that Mozilla doesn't have a review page, where users can rate Firefox Sync and talk over their experiences. It would greatly reassure potential users.

Also, Firefox Sync is under-documented. Does it have, like XMarks, a facility by which users can access their bookmarks when they cannot access their local browsers, e.g. when travelling? No way of knowing, without trying it! Does it sync Folders and the arrangement of links within folders accurately? No way of knowing, without trying it! Does it allow uploads to the server, downloads from the server? No way of knowing, without trying it!

Come on Firefox, a few pages of documentation, please!

Well, I've been doing Firefox sync for a long time, and it seems to work pretty well. But I'm a little confused. What EXACTLY is going on? Note: I do NOT want to know how to set up sync. I know that.

First question. When sync is automatic, when exactly does it do it? I pull down and do "Open menu" with the three bars, and then hover over the sync arrows-in-the round. It might say "Last sync: 5 minutes ago", and it might say "Last sync: 5 seconds ago". Nothing happened on my Firefox five seconds ago or five minutes ago. So who told it to sync? What determines when it is supposed to sync? I presume Firefox automatically does a sync if you change a bookmark or password.

Second question. What exactly is a sync? I gather that if the sync file (containing bookmarks and everything) in the cloud is younger than the local sync file, the local sync file will be replaced by the one in the cloud. If the sync file in the cloud is older than the local sync file, that sync file in the cloud is replaced by the local one. Is that what's going on? That is, it's all about the time stamp? Do not tell me "Sync lets you share all of your data and preferences (such as your bookmarks, history, passwords, open tabs and installed add-ons) across all your devices." I know that.

Third question. Let's suppose I want sync to ONLY be manual. As in, it will ONLY sync when I do Tools>Sync Now. How do I set it up for that?

As an admin in our organization I wanted to add two "Add Exception..." so end users do not have to get a certificate warning and click through to two places.

One is a connection to a systray service, the url is https://127.0.0.1:51763 and to test and validate this service for the web application, one must first click test in the app, then click Advanced and Add Exception on the "Your connection is not secure" page. The second is https://tablet.sigwebtablet.com:47290/SigWeb/ which has a Thawte certificate on it, but still requires clicking through.

This is for an in house financial operating system. The vendor did place our wildcard cert on the main page which works, its just these two service test URLs cause an issue, and since we do not own these certificates, we cannot re-sign them with a trusted Subject Alternative Name.

If I can do this with Firefox CCK or Group Policy, that would be fine. We do have Firefox trust our Windows Certificate store, so maybe there is something we can do already in Group Policy and Windows Certificates? I'm not sure because the cert at 127.0.0.1 is signed by corelation.local and there are NO SAN names on it, so even trying to use GPO's to import it to the Computers Trusted Root Certificates may not be enough.

Thanks.

Hi All,

Recently I noticed that downloading files using file manager is stopping at random times giving an error that hard drive can't keep up with the incoming data. I checked the Task Manager and noticed high I/O read bytes for FF. I was monitoring this for some time. After initial opening the amount of read data increased to 200MB within 5 seconds. Then when I was using the FF it increased to 1GB. On one occasion it reached 16BG within 4 minutes. This is causing my disk to slow down. The amount of data read I think depends on how many tabs I have open and how intensively I'm using FF.

Can someone help me to identify what is causing this?

Latest version of FF is used Add-ons and plug ins up-to-date Windows 10 x64

the href are not working. The text is not made clickable when i hover and does nothing when i click. I've tried resetting Firefox, checked there are no proxies but nothing's changed. In Google chrome they work fine.

Can anyone suggest a solution?

How can I see the name of the URL before I jump to it. The message in the gray bar says "Firefox prevented the web page from redirecting to another page". I don't have one in front of me but I think the button at the end says "allow". Usually when I'm downloading I have to allow the redirect or the download window won't open. There are times when the redirect doesn't seem to go anywhere. The new page looks just like the original. In some of the questions I read the change was dramatic. Those questions I read in the forum were about turning off redirect, but since FF went to the trouble of creating an option I have to believe there's a reason. On Wikipedia I read but don't entirely understand all the reasons for redirection, but I saw enough to realize that turning it off is not for me a good idea. I imagine that if FF is about to send me to the new page then it knows what the URL is. It doesn't know what I'll encounter there, but it knows the URL "name". That is to say "www.bad site.com" or "www.minor change to preserve bookmarks.com". So how do I see what the name of the site is before I allow the jump to it.

I'm looking for an about:config switch that can be toggled to disable Firefox checking add-on age except when starting it (I suspect this age is "app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer").

I occasionally set my Windows clock back about two years, which used to just throw security errors on new pages. Now it also disables add-ons, which is obnoxious. Even after resetting the clock and restarting Firefox, they still can't be enabled unless extensions.legacy.enabled is set to true, which seems inadvisable.

Alternately, is there a number I can reset "app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer" or another variable to that will re-enable extensions?

Thanks.

Hello,

I work with individuals who use screen readers so all access to the computer is via keyboard shortcuts rather than any "point and click" with the mouse.

At one time, I know that I could throw focus to the "hamburger stack"/"three line" open menu button via a keyboard shortcut. As an example, in Chrome, I can throw focus on the "Customize and control Google Chrome" main menu button in the main toolbar by hitting ALT. Now I know that ALT under Firefox causes the classic menu bar to appear, but I could swear that there was some way to throw focus to the open menu button via the keyboard and that, if one needed to, to use the left arrow/right arrow buttons to traverse any add-on buttons that are to the left of the open menu button.

I have tried everything I can think of, but cannot get focus on the open menu button or any of the add-on buttons located to the right of the address/search box.

The add-on Read Aloud is incredibly helpful when one is a screen reader user, but only if one can get to the button that allows it to be activated, and that button always ends up in the area to the right of the address/search box and to the right of the open menu button. The only way I have been able to activate it in the current version of Firefox is via point and click, which is utterly useless because my students cannot point and click.

The collection of buttons that I can find no way to navigate to via the keyboard are enclosed in orange in the included image. They could be for any add-ons, not the specific ones from this screen shot.

If anyone can tell me how I can get to these buttons and move among them using only the keyboard I would really appreciate it.


edit: fixed so there is no horizontal scrollbars due to spaces before start of each part.

Dear Firefox,

It's the first time I am using FireFox! Seriously. For long years I've been an avid Opera and then Vivaldi fan, unfortunately, recently Vivaldi started to become even less compatible with many sites, and I personally started to think more about security and privacy in the Web. I've found that many tech sites recommend using new FireFox as it is as fast as is configurable with its add-ons. That said, I've found this list of 13 add-ons that would help secure my privacy:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/mozilla/privacy-matters/

Unfortunately, I am no IT wizard, but a simple user, and I cannot tell if I should istall all 13 of them? Or maybe the overlap in some usages? And futhermore, should I add an addblocker to it?

I would appreciate all the info and help you guys provide :) Thank you in advance.

I have followed the directions for enabling Firefox logging (on Linux) as provided here:

 https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Debugging/HTTP_logging

I am now in possession of a detailed log.txt file from a complete Firefox session. I wish to use the data contained therein to create a summary (either by hostname or by host IP) of the total number of bytes received from each separate host during the complete Firefox session in question. How may I accomplish this? Please describe your answer in detail. Mostly, I need to know which specific log records I should be fishing out of the great mass of log data in order to derive the summary per-host bandwidth data that I want to create.

P.S. I am well versed in awk, sed, grep, and Perl, so if someone can just tell me what sorts of log file lines I should be looking for, then I should be able to fish those out for myself, and then perform the simple arithmetic additions needed to summarize the bandwidth usage on a per-host basis.

P.P.S. My question is in reference to Firefox 46.0 on Ubuntu.
