Up until the latest updates a week or two ago, UPS tracking worked fine. However, with version 100.x, UPS stopped working. All is get is the error message, "We are unable to complete your tracking request at this time. Please try again later.". I tried other older tracking numbers that I know are good, and the same error. However, UPS tracking using Chrome or Explorer/Edge works fine.

I could blame UPS, but both Chrome and Explorer/Edge does work.

Apparently, Firefox is sending a (buggy) request that UPS doesn't like.

Thanks, Bill

A couple users at our site intermittently receive a SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT error when navigating to Google in Firefox. This happens in Version 99.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 computers. When the issue occurs, users can navigate to other websites without issues. Navigating to Google in a different browser works no problem. Restarting the browser will resolve the issue. Clearing cookies and site data has no effect. Users can also refresh the page after some time and the issue will go away.

Any idea as to why this is happening?

I noticed in my wife's identity that "share" from the top file menu does NOT bring up the options for (Mac 11.6.5) to send an email or message, etc. I know it works from my identity w. same computer/settings. It used to work all the time on her identity, (and does so w.o issue using her Safari), but I don't recall an update.

   It also is obnoxious as all the 'share' brings up is the stock Mac "extensions' options, of which mail, messages are grey scaled out (as is iCloud), with no padlock or way to make them clickable/check or uncheck!   I have run safe mode, disabled extensions from the top bar, but have no idea how to make the "share" share!!!  It does work if we just highlight the page address and post it into macmail (14.0).  These permission things have no clear way to reset them for Firefox...i.e my calling up Mac support would probably be useless.

I searched extensively for this and could only find answers regarding bookmarks, not add-on icons. Of course I could still be missing it...

I am upgrading from Firefox Developer 86 to 101.

The spacing between add-on icons has been increased in Firefox 101, making the URL bar shorter:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-05-26-17-03-36-e06f37.png

Does anyone know of a userChrome.css script that I can use to decrease the add-on icon spacing in Firefox 101, to make it more like Firefox 86?

Hi, I use the Outlook web interface on firefox. I keep running into a strange bug. I'll start typing an e-mail message, and all of a sudden, my keystrokes are interpreted as commands instead of text. For instance, I'll type a word with an "n" in it, like "and", and somehow after I type the "a", the interface starts grabbing keystrokes away from the text field, so when I hit "n", it creates a new message, and the "d" ends up going into the text field of this new message. It's very frustrating, because I can't type more than a couple of sentences before the message and interface get screwed up. I've seen this misbehavior for a while, through several updates of firefox. No other web app behaves this way.

There is a very descriptive thread of the problem: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/working-with-outlook-web-interface-on-firefox/4212cac3-4be3-4295-b325-369ea3d46f2a?page=1

This has been happening to me for many months and through many browser updates. I/ going to have to get rid of firefox soon

I never want to see this content again and am considering switching browsers.

I don't want to see or think about ads, i don't want to know what getpocket is. I don't want chefs plate and their columbiahouse 2.0 bullshit product. It is absolute trash.

I do not want to see these things. Ever. Again.

If there is no way to remove these things from my browser its time to go back to chrome.

Thanks.

Hi I don't know what has happened to Firefox, I used it all the time for many years, now I can't sign in to Outlook and have more problems than ever. It asks me to sign into Microsoft but all I get is a blank page. Firefox was always more colourful than other browsers that's why I used it and nothing you do to try to fix this problem doesn't work, it creates more problems than it's worth, that's why I use Chrome, but I do want to use FF. Not all of us are IT experts and can't do all these complicated suggestions every web site offers, so can you make it so much easier for us to understand and for example get Outlook to open automatically as it used to do, until you can fix this I will have to use another browser. I really do like FF but it's impossible. Geoff.

I use a touch screen HP laptop. And when I shopping or just reading news and there is a picture on the page or site it pops up, even if I do not touch it. I can not see the text behind it. I know it is a setting some here because if i go to trouble shooting mode it does not happen. i have checked and unchecked every thing I can fine and nothing helps but trouble shooting mode. So when I close out and reopen Firefox trouble back. I have not tried other browsers because I only like Firefox

PC / Windows 7 (yes, still) / Firefox 100.0.2 :

Past several months on Firefox, when attempting to access a video either embedded (say, in a news site or YouTube), the download is unusually slow, with such screen notices (attached) appearing.

The "gray bar" across the bottom (which, as I understand it, indicates buffering/caching activity) immediately loads up about .25%, then awaits the video to play . . . and then it sits there and goes through any combination of the attached .jpgs.

Quite often, regardless of how many tabs are open (perhaps a half dozen), the (Not Responding) message will show up, and then it's just wait it out (usually 15-45 seconds).

Any solutions / comments / directions-to-point-me-in?

Appreciated. Thank you.

Recent issue, last few days. Unable to access Microsoft One Drive online without first having to Refresh Firefox each time. It is then accessible for a short period of time before the address link again breaks down into an incomplete address that does not open One Drive. I've repeated this process a number of times and each and every time the only means of access to One Drive is by Refreshing Firefox. Access to One Drive is fine on other browsers. I've cleared the cache, and run Firefox in Troubleshoot mode, but the only thing that works, and does so consistently, is to first Refresh Firefox. It will then go to the correct address for One Drive for a short period of time, before again breaking down into an incomplete forwarding address. I prefer using Firefox, but regular access to One Drive, without all these unnecessary steps, is a requirement

A previous company employee set up a Firefox Account, that we release a Firefox Add-On against. This person set up their work account as the Firefox Account Primary Email and did not set up a Secondary Account. This person left the company, and their email account is no longer available. We now need to update the Add-On. We have authentication information to log into the account, but when we try to access the Add-On/Extension location, the system sends a verification code to the Primary Email. We cannot even set a Secondary Email for the same reason. What can we do since creating a new account will not allow us to access and update the existing Add-On?

Operating System Ubuntu 20.04.4LTS on AMD® Ryzen 3 pro 3200g 64bit processor. Firefox Web Browser version 100.0.2 (64-bit)

The method I can reproduce sound distortion:

I have clear sound playback through both system HDMI speakers or if earphones are plugged in, verified using the Ubuntu Sound Output test left/right (without distortion)

Then if I open a normal Firefox window and listen to YouTube video for example I have no distortion, if I however open I private window, say to access training material on Microchip University site I suddenly have distorted playback.

Please advise why private window opened suddenly distorts my output sound. Sound suspicious.
