Hi,

I recently had to switch computers. I have had a Firefox account for years and utilize the Firefox sync. However, I am unable to login to my Firefox account on my new computer. There is a "working" banner at the top but it never loads. I can access my account on Chrome but there is not an option to sync my data back. In the Firefox browser, it does not give me the option to sync.

Thanks,

Hi, This problem has been happening more over the last 6-8 months, and to the best of my knowledge nothing has significantly changed with the OS or settings that would be in conflict. What typically happens is I will have a new page not load and just spin as if it's trying to load and it won't, or I will have links on sites not load correctly, and getting errors in that vein like.

I'll quit Firefox and relaunch it and I get the error you see in the attached screenshot. I'll have to download the most current version, reinstall, and then it launches and functions perfectly. Until it doesn't, and from what I've noticed, there really isn't a pattern I can see as to why and when it happens. I'm currently on a MacBook Pro using OS 11.2.3 (Big Sur). There is another Mac in the office, I believe on OS Montery (not sure what exact version) both on the Apple M1 Chip, and it happens to that user too and the same fix is the only way to get it back to functioning.

So far, I haven't had anyone on Windows let me know of any similar situation happening and I'm at a loss as to what could be causing the issue. Thanks, Heath

I have had this with various versions of Firefox. Currently on 105.0.1 on W10 laptop. Todays example, I've logged into Ancestry, and clicked the link to get to my family tree. As soon as the page opens, it then looks like it goes behind sunglasses, (just the window, not the toolbar) and none of the links on the page are accesible on mouse hover. It looks like Firefox has protected the page. Not sure whether it is something I have done, it doesn't seem to affect many other sites that I can remember.. I use 'Strict' tracking protection - I've tried turning this off for the site, but no change.

Someone logged into my account this morning around 0732 ET. My account was compromised. There are virtually no tools to see if I had any logged passwords or bookmarks that leave me vulnerable to further damage. - I can’t view access logs to see if my account was legitimately accessed or if I just got a phishing email (it’s uncharacteristically good if it’s phishing: looks identical, spoofed source, real IP reported) - There’s no note of sent emails that can give me confidence in email links (they don’t look useful anyway) - I can’t see if any saved passwords have been removed with a timestamp - I can’t see if bookmarks have been removed - I cant even report the compromised account

The lack of support built into the application is a real security concern. I stopped using FF for the time being. I don’t know if I feel safe using it in the future. It took my a while to reset my password. I think I’m good now but some logs or some sort of fraud response would go a long way.

Hello,

This might be pretty niche, but I want to customize my bookmarks and save them to distribute across multiple virtual machines. These VMs run on non-networked hardware devices, that are accessed through non-networked local machines. The idea is to make the bookmarks how I need, so that they can be put on a dev stack and copied to new systems when imaged.

I can't use sync, due to not having internet connections locally or on the VMs. And I can't backup/restore configurations made locally because the changes have to be made through a domain controller (that's a VM, and also doesn't have Firefox installed) which will push configurations to all other VMs, including the local machine.

I've tried customizing through GPO, editing the registry, editing bookmarks.html, creating my own .json file; nothing seems to stick. I've also learned that renaming or deleting places.sqlite doesn't really help because it gets regenerated when Firefox opens a new window. Even tried a DB Browser for places.sqlite, in hopes to edit the file, which didn't help. Unsure where to go next, ideas or assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Just wondering if any of the developers could add a domain exclusion option within the browser history settings where users could exclude the domains which they don't want the browser to record the history of.

Now many of you would argue that why don't you use private mode. Blah blah blah. But it's not the same thing. I gotta use my GMail, Google-drive, Outlook, or Facebook, etc everyday, so the private mode is not an option.

These domain URLs are not necessarily required to be stored and synced every day after day when nobody or at least 99% of people are not gonna use them ever.

Would be better, if users get the option where they can control which domains they want to keep the history of. This would offset millions and billions bytes of the data from Mozilla and also speed up and improve the history management.

Please share your thoughts.

I've tried to search and found some other posts about this, but not a ton... leading me to believe there is something wrong.

Issue: Fonts on some sites are too heavy/bold (vs appearing correctly on Chrome/Chromium browsers) Environment: Windows 10 or 11, Firefox stable (currently 105.0.1) Example site: https://www.subaruoutback.org (this is not the only one, just an example) Workaround(s): I can do one of two things... I can either enforce browser fonts globally, which fixes the issue but then also break some sites in other ways or I can use an add-on to let me selectively enforce browser fonts as needed (which is what I am doing).

Screenshots attached, this is my experience on multiple PCs (Windows 10 and 11). One image is from Firefox, one is from Chrome.

On some sites, it isn't a huge deal... maybe just looks bad but is functionally fine. On some sites the issue is more impactful and actually creates readability issues.

Of course I can continue to work around the issue, but ideally I would like to fix it.

I did read that there are some changes site owners can make for font handling, but obviously requesting that sort of thing isn't realistic in a general sense.

Thank you!

I CAN'T ACCESS MY GMAIL OR ANY OTHER SEARCH ENGINE, CAN SOMEONE HELP WITH THIS

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

I am getting a stack of these errors preventing me from browsing to secure websites which includes google.com. Luckily my Chrome Browser and Edge Browser work fine. This is just another nail in the coffin for me to close the door on this browser which is just getting more and more unreliable.

For now, I have migrated to Chrome to allow me to go about my business of without Firefox telling me Google.com and many other secure sites are unsafe to browse!

Please bring back the override and accept the risk. I would rather have a warning and transfer risk to me rather than have a draconian rule telling me to use a different browser to resolve the issue. For now, you have forced my choice.

I cannot believe I am the only User to experience this issue. I do not want to delete all my cookies etc as I want to be selective in what I delete but again, this option has been taken away from me as well.

Looking forward to a solution.

Thanks.

Hi

I wonder whether you could help me

The OS is Windows 10

By the way, I’ve scanned over and over again, with different software, the computer for any malware, virus, etc, and it’s all clean.

I’ve used Firefox and bookmarks for years.

Lately, when I try to place (sometimes even when I’ve already placed it) the cursor on a bookmark (any bookmark) all the bookmarks (including the selected, “highlighted”, bookmark) roll away, upwards or downwards.

As for the selected bookmark, it disappears from view, even though, when I find it, I can see that the bookmark itself remains selected.

Weird.

What am I doing wrong??

In advance, thanks for your kind help

Hello everyone

my default browser is Firefox. The service desk application will not open in Firefox only this type of email won't open (see Screenshot). When I receive emails and try to open them, it only displays a blank page and loads without success.

I always need to copy the link manually and open it in chrome.

What we did:

We tried several things such as

Deleting Firefox history, cache, cookies, etc. However, when doing this, the link works the first time but the following tries don't work, it just keeps loading infinitely (same behavior in a Private Window). Disabling all add-ons.

We have observed that the same links work as expected in Chrome and this behavior happens only with the links related to the customer issue view, other Jira links work normally.

I'm using the latest Firefox version such as Microsoft® Outlook® for Microsoft 365 MSO (Version 2207 Build 16.0.15427.20248) 64-bit

I run several versions of Firefox concurrently and recent added 102.3.0 ESR with no issues.

Backed Up bookmarks from a previous stable version to a .json file and imported to v102.3.0#

All the favicons were missing, replaced with a globe.

Visited a dozen sites to see if reloaded them but only 1 loaded icon. These are my own https sites with similar coding an NO code to hide icons - included google. No change.

Read all the posts I could. Verified databases, checked about:config BUT nothing changed, all bookmarks just show the globe icon. Even re-installed that version of Firefox, but same result. Started Firefox with an older profile from earlier version, for a rebuild. Same again.

Is this a bad feature of 102.3.0, an error or something else? Run 78.15ESR with same bookmarks and all are correct.

Any clues above all those published which do not work
