Hi,

Is it possible to save/export (and then restoring) the home screen icons/shortcuts without using Firefox sync?

I want to save its state on my disk so I can restore it later, after formatting, for example. I don't really use any sync features and I actually don't want to sign up for yet another online service if I can help it.

Thanks a lot!

A while back the behavior of the ctrl+shift+t shortcut changed from reopening tab in the current window to reopening tab in the current window or reopening last closed window which for me and a lot of other people too made it worse. There's been a thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1421356 but it's been archived without a real solution. Is there now a way like a about:config toggle to bring back the old functionality? I really miss the old behavior.

I often run into issues with PDFs in Firefox Linux. They either appear totally blank (typically after suspend/restore), or they appear with the desktop background showing through (as in the attached screenshot).

Hard refreshing the page doesn't change anything, opening a new tab and opening the PDF again doesn't change anything, opening a new window and loading the PDF doesn't change anything.

The screenshot is with this PDF: https://www.sgsw.ch/home/strom/_jcr_content/Par/sgsw_accordion_list_1838160259/AccordionListPar/sgsw_accordion_12353/AccordionPar/sgsw_downloadlist/DownloadListPar/sgsw_download_1049323524.ocFile/2023-08-31%20Mitteilung%20Elcom%20Erh%C3%B6hung%20Elektrizit%C3%A4tspreise%20f%C3%BCr%20das%20Jahr%202024.pdf

It renders correctly in Chromium.

Using Node Express-Sessions to set cookie "httpOnly: true, secure: true, SameSite: "None" FF blocks authorization

My web site My web site allows user to login with .ejs Sign-up/Sign-in pages then delivers a React page. This works in Chrome and Safari. Https/SSL are provided by my host A2Hosting.

Firefox warns "Cookie “connect.sid” does not have a proper “SameSite” attribute value" when the cookie is set and then blocks the react page after login. If I enter the route that leads to the react page directly I can login and don't get the warning. In both cases the Storage tab in Dev tools shows the same settings for the cookie.
I made sure to remove any cookies for my site before testing the second scenario. I have tested this on Windows, Linux and Android versions of Firefox with the same results.

Here is my Express-Session instantiation ``` app.use(expressSession({

 store: new pgSession({
   pool: pool,
   tableName: 'session'
   // Insert connect-pg-simple options here
 }),
 secret: process.env.SECRET,
 resave: false,
 saveUninitialized: false,

cookie: {

   httpOnly: true,
   Secure: true,
   SameSite: "None",
   path: ['/'],
   maxAge: 60 * 60 * 1000 * 5
 }
 // Insert connect-pg-simple options here

})) ``` I've tried changing the path to include the react app route, I've added it to Cors white list and I converted it to open with an .ejs file instead of .html with no results.

Thanks for your support and for a great browser

Hi,

I use ClassicPress (fork of WordPress) and I have a problem when requesting a password reset link for it.

When opening the email received to reset password in the firefox dev edition browser and click the reset link I receive an error stating that the link is invalid.

I discovered by trial and error that copying the same link and pasting it manually in a new tab of the same firefox dev edition browser solves the issue because then the link is recognised as valid.

This happened after the update I received last week.

I am a linux mint user if that helps in tracking down the issue.

Hello Firefox community and thank you for your time and effort. Let me begin by saying I used to have this same issue with MS operating systems until I said goodbye to MS and went to Linux on one laptop and got a Mac for streaming and graphics. Here is the issue: MS had so many background processes running constantly, regardless of what I was using the machine for, that I regularly experienced crashes, warnings and slowed responses on my Windows machines. No matter how vigilant I was about settings and stopping processes and keeping system clean, I would regularly have to replace the fan on my machines as the constant overheating would eventually kill the fans. That has not been a problem since I made that switch away from MS. Until now. I keep clean machines and keep them updated religiously. But with the latest few Firefox updates the problem is now back on both my Linux built Lenovo and my MacBook Pro, especially the Mac. That regularly shuts down after an hour of streaming use. When I hear the fan constantly struggling and feel the machines heating up I check the background processes and find that Firefox has at least four running processes eating up resources. Force stop does not fix the resource hogging; by the time it is apparent and I respond the machine is already overheated and shuts itself down. Last night I started searching and found a (very) recent thread about this same issue. Most of the participants were attributing it to recent updates. If this is the case is there any effort to fix this? I would hate to have this issue completely destroy my older (but still heavily relied upon) MacBook with this constant mechanical challenge since I cannot afford to replace it. Please can you fix this problem. It is an old and exhausting struggle I thought I would not have to deal with again. If my assumption of the source of the problem is inaccurate do you have any suggestions? Thanks again, Jerri

Hello,

I have created a webpage with a canvas element that allows the user to draw an irregular path by pressing down the mouse, similar to the free drawing of a paint application. The issue is that the very first time that the user presses the mouse, the line stops abruptly, while the next times the lines are drawn correctly. The events seem to fire correctly and the page works fine at Chromium, so it seems to be a Firefox issue. You can find the html page below. I am curious, what could be the problem?

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="el">

<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

  <style>
    #canvas {
      background-color: whitesmoke;
      border: solid 2px brown;
    }
  </style>
</head>

<body>
  <canvas id="canvas"></canvas>

  <script>
    function startDrawing(e) {
      isDrawing = true;
      context.beginPath();
      context.moveTo(e.offsetX, e.offsetY);
    }

    function draw(e) {
      if (isDrawing) {
        context.lineTo(e.offsetX, e.offsetY);
        context.stroke();
      }
    }

    function stopDrawing(e) {
      console.log("stopped drawing")
      isDrawing = false;
    }

    const canvas = document.getElementById('canvas');
    const context = canvas.getContext('2d');
    var isDrawing = false;
    canvas.width = 1000;
    canvas.height = 1000;
    context.strokeStyle = "#913d88";
    context.lineWidth = 2;
    canvas.onmousedown = startDrawing;
    canvas.onmouseup = stopDrawing;
    canvas.onmousemove = draw;

https:\\archive.org works perfectly in Firefox on Win-10, but on a new Linux Mint install, (with default Firefox as included), this particular website simply displays as a blank white screen. Every other website I try on the Linux install works perfectly; it is only this one website which does not work.

There are no add-ons, no proxies, no security suites, nothing extra. I cleared all cookies and cache. Tried running FF in Protected Mode. Nothing seems to fix it.  There are no error messages displayed - just a blank white screen.

And, to make it worse, I am not particularly computer-literate, (I'm 82 years old...), so you will have to give me simple guidance if I need to get involved with deeper logging etc.

Hello,

I'm developing a web application. Yesterday I could access it with http://localhost:8000, then, I implemented https and it worked too. Today I needed to use http again for my tests, but everytime I type http://localhost:8000, Firefox changes it to https://localhost:8000.

I already tried to clear everything in the history, even the cookies, but it didn't work.
