Hi I am using firefox in arch linux 5.17.9-zen1-1-zen kernel and after the new firefox update I can't right click in firefox. Whenever I right click the context menu shows up for 1 sec and then it automatically takes me to the previous page. Click on the image automatically prompts me to download it although I don't want to download the image. Is there anything I can do to fix the issue ?

Desktop URLs not working today, Firefox as default browser -- but work if default browser toggled to Edge

Hi folks,

I've asked this same question of Microsoft, as I cannot tell if this is a quirk in Firefox 100.0.2, or in Windows 10 Home, or something to do with what they put in the water here (besides flouride)...

Over the last few days I've had to reinstall Office on this Windows 10 Home system, and had a Firefox update to 100.0.2 as well. Everything working fine up through last night -- URL shortcuts on the desktop would open Firefox (default browser) just fine.

Shut down. Cold boot this morning. Manually open Firefox as usual. Double-click on desktop URL shortcuts (or right-click, Open) gets a real quick hourglass and then nothing. No error, no browser tab.

So I checked: default browser still set to Firefox; .URL filetype still set to "Internet Browser."

I toggled the default browser to Edge, and the links work just fine. Same links. No changes to them.

Toggle it back to the much more privacy-protecting Firefox and... they won't work.

This seems spooky.

Note that the desktop icons for these shortcuts correctly show either the Firefox icon, or the logo/icon for the web page itself (ie, Google Maps). And the toggle of default browser did NOT update the icons.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

When I use Chrome and enter the same link it is much shorter and looks like :- https://www.facebook.com/JournalTimes/posts/10166569792420602 As I post a lot of links I prefer to use the shortest. How can I get Firefox to display the url the same as Chrome.

Hi! First of all, I'd like to congratulate the community on the 100th edition of Firefox.

The subject was selected as "other" because it is not a failure or problem, but a suggestion for improvement related to the information on the volume of cookies and website and cache data stored on disk.

It's been a while since I noticed this and now I present it in writing asking whether or not it is feasible to implement the suggestion below.

In Settings / Privacy and security / Cookies and website data, the amount of “bytes” stored taking up disk space appears.

According to the detailed description on the subject, available at the address

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-cookies-and-site-data-firefox

there is a screen copy illustrating the explanations, for example:

Cookies and website data Your stored cookies, website data and cache are currently taking up 468 MB of disk space. know more

That's the point: "Your cookies, website data and cache stored are currently taking up 468 MB of disk space"

However, this information freezes when reaching 1.0GB.

The exact question: could this information be shown beyond the conditioned threshold until the user decides to clear all data?

Without further ado, I thank you in advance for your attention and, as far as possible, I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely, Ricardo Pinto. Basic Firefox User in Brazil

There are a number of old threads regarding this and having worked through them it is still unresolved. 1) I have cleared cache/cookies 2) I have disabled all extensions 3) I have turned off tracking 4) I have tried in safe mode - still the same.

This is not just on one website - it is on ALL that have Facebook feeds. It is NOT just on my laptop - I have asked others to try - they have the same result - blank page. ...so please don't suggest re-installing Firefox!!

An example is: https://dragonsdensoftplay.co.uk/News-Events/news-events.html

The feed works ok in other browsers.

Thank you

I used to sign in to my credit card through Elan Financial Services and then I would highlight my credit card, tell it the date range I needed to update to Quicken, and hit enter. a popup would give me the option of opening the file or to save the quicken file to my computer. I would select the option to open the file and it would update my register on Quicken. Now, I only get the option to save the file to my computer. On Microsoft Edge, I still get the choice to open or save the file. Why doesn't Firefox support the Open Function anymore. I use Firefox for everything, but now I have to remember to switch to Edge for this one important update. Is this a change in Firefox or something I have to deal with Elan on? Thanks for any help. --sgb

Incorrect URL Suggestion

Hello all! Thanks for your time. When I log in to a certain procurement website associated with my employer, I use the following URL: https://solutions.sciquest.com/apps/… (read more)

Hello all!

Thanks for your time. When I log in to a certain procurement website associated with my employer, I use the following URL:

https://solutions.sciquest.com/apps/Router/Login?OrgName=MIT.

Once I have done so, subsequent typing in the URL field autocompletes to the shorter host:

https://solutions.sciquest.com/.

The only problem is that when I go to this shorter host, I am "Forbidden \n You don't have permission to access this resource." The website does not seem to allow anyone to go here.


I am on a holy quest to purge this unwanted autocomplete suggestion, but nothing seems to work. It is not appearing because of a bookmark or search history- I can delete places.sqlite to start fresh but the problem resurrects as soon as I first successfully visit the desired URL: https://solutions.sciquest.com/apps/Router/Login?OrgName=MIT.

When I use SQLite to look at places.sqlite, I don't find the shortened URL anywhere in "moz_places" but I do find it in "moz_origins". It appears there with a much greater "frecency" than the lengthier URL for some reason. ID #10 has "solutions.sciquest.com/apps/Router/Login?OrgName=MIT" with frecency 2100, and ID #11 has "solutions.sciquest.com" with frecency 16100.

If I try to delete #11, I'm not able to for reasons likely related to my lack of understanding/proficiency with SQL databases. The DB Browser I am using says "Error deleting record, foreign key constraint failed". But my suspicion would be that even if I did delete it, it would be re-generated whenever I login successfully. What I am able to do is edit the "frecency" field. When I change it to zero, and write the database, the option goes away. I fear that frecency will simply be reset next time I close and reopen however.

Thanks in advance! Dave

I recently downloaded firefox on my new computer, and want to login on my account. I am supposed to get this 5 min auth code (that is actually 20 min according to some sources) on email. Funny thing is I am getting this email one hour or so later. I have added firefox as a contact and done everything in my might to get my mail services to run faster, however I am still getting my 6 digit code way to slow. I've been doing this for a day now, is there another option?

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?

When downloading files from within Firefox, the option "Always ask you where to save files" seems to have stopped working recently. (Since version 98 or 99.) Sometimes it appears the selected files don't download at all, and other times it looks like they get downloaded to the Downloads folder. Still others, especially .pdf files, get downloaded to some unknown location, and then get opened in another application. I experienced no problems up until just the last week or two.
