Up until Firefox 64, Firefox had limited support for RSS:

  • Viewing a RSS feed would show you the feed items, with an option to do something with the feed.
  • Live bookmarks would actually subscribe to those feeds

I can understand removing Live Bookmarks. It's a big feature. I don't understand removing the (what I assume to be) XSLT stylesheet that made RSS feeds not look like a wall of XML. Does anybody know what the conversation was here? Are there minutes?

Even basic RSS support helps people interact with the web, and since Chrome and Firefox both dumped RSS, users are being driven further and further into the arms of "Platforms" who handle this stuff through black-box algorithms. And so much tracking.

Mozilla should reverse this one. Bring RSS back hard.

During an online transaction I get into a loop where Firefox reports "Firefox prevented this page from reloading automatically". I respond with Allow but the situation repeats. I have changed the settings to standard for this particular website, but the problem persists and appears to be the reason that the transaction eventually fails. What other settings or adjustments do I need to make to allow Firefox to automatically reload a page on a trusted site?

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

I do work that necessitates I have quite a few applications open. Often, I will slide one out of the way to get to another. It would be really great if we could pick up and slide the Firefox app anywhere along the top of the tool bar instead of just at the ends. It seems it would be such a simple fix to end something so frustrating. Just give us a little room around the open windows tabs to grab the app and slide it into or out of position.

Thanks

Hi,

We have a webapp, while accessing this application in Chrome/Edge browsers, it doesn't prompt the user to enter login credentials. But the same application while accessing in Firefox, it prompts the user to enter login credentials. How can I disable the login prompt for Firefox and make firefox to use the windows authentication( How to allow NTLM/Windows Authentication in Firefox )

I came across this article and just want to make sure if this is the right setting needs to be done. https://docs.helloid.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002887174-How-to-allow-NTLM-Windows-Authentication-in-Firefox

I cannot seem to narrow this down. I am getting a ntdll.dll exception within the error that I see in Event Viewer -> Application logs. This issue is reproducible on two different computers, opening various sites. I suspected it was extensions (as those would be a commonality) but I had the same crash occur in Troubleshoot Mode. It does happen less frequently on a newer machine, but it still happens. I find that opening something such as YouTube or The New York Times makes it crash faster, meaning some performance thing.

Attached are two distinct errors that happen each time.
