Every time I come across a file and click the link to either open or save the file, Firefox just downloads the file -- THEN it asks me if I want to open it or save it..? It's bugged and an obscene security threat if the browser is so easily willing to download files against my intention.

Before I'm asked, I have gone through the settings multiple times to ensure 'Always ask you where to save files' and 'Ask whether to open or save files" are checked. Behavior does not change according to settings.

Example 1. Click link for a PDF with the intention to open, read, and forget 2. Firefox automatically downloads the file to my download folder 3. Firefox prompts me if I want to save the file or open it

If I click 'open', the file stays in the saved location even though I don't want it to exist.

So, for awhile now when I go to some sites, the screen suddenly starts flashing, then it jitters and turns some light color (like a light green; not blue screen, not black). If I guess where the "X" is to shut down the tab that has the video, I can end this. Often, like on youtube, I find the problem is some ad video that was playing. The rest of the site is ok. But not always.

One site I wrote down a few days where it happened: https://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/eagles/eagles-face-giants-2022-playoff-opener?cid=sm_npd_rsn_phi_fb_mn&fbclid=IwAR3rGUEa0W8fElrzCWANSIUpti9VKlbn0iHyvcFsviajYExo5tcRSyWBJXA

scroll down to video and everything blinks, becomes unuseable

It happens in lots of places, though. It is not per se a YouTube problem or just a problem at NBCSports. I shell out to MS Edge, and it seems to handle everything fine, so I'm assuming at this point it is a browser issue.

One last point: after this happen the screen display is degraded even after I manage to shut down the offending tab or video. It takes a Log off/log back in or reboot to fix everything. The degradation takes the form of making the screen look a bit like a pointilist painting, although that's an exaggeration.

FF 109.0.1 64 bit Windows 11 NVidia GeFORCE RTX 3060 running studio driver 526.98 (I have switched periodically from / to their gaming driver, which doesn't seem to matter)

Any help, appreciated.

For the second update in a row, Firefox has caused issues with two of the web sites I use most frequently. The first is Fidelity.com. If it will load at all, it takes a near eternity to do so. The second is the web site for my medicare insurance plan - it causes me to be locked out of my on-line account. These issues first occurred on the second to last update when both of these problems first appeared. I almost chalked it up to coincidence. But now that it has happened again (and only those two web sites) with the latest update I installed (ver. 109.1), I know that it is a problem with Firefox. I have enjoyed the privacy and reliability of Firefox for years. But if updates are going to eliminate my access to my most used web sites, then I'll have to find another browser.

I am on a Macbook air running Firefox 109.0.1 with DuckDuckGo as the engine. This past week I've had webpages that I am using disappear leaving me with a blank tab. In the middle of the game or puzzle it just disappears and there I am with the Firefox logo on the page. The tab doesn't close, just the content is gone. The back button doesn't work - it's as if I have set a new tab. The two sites that seem to be disappear most frequently are: thejigsawpuzzle.com https://freeonlinemahjonggames.net/dogmahjong2.html both of which we have used for years without problems. It doesn't happen every time we use the webpages but at least once a day. We have restarted the computer and Firefox. This laptop is just a couple of weeks old, could that somehow be the issue?

I have a sandbox iframe which is hosted by various websites. Lets assume that this iframe is loaded like this: I have already added 'allow-scripts allow-forms allow-modals allow-same-origin allow-popups allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox allow-storage-access-by-user-activation' at sandbox. I also use document.requestStorageAccess() from inside the iframe and I set event listeners for the storage like this:

window.addEventListener('storage', onStorageFunc, false);. From the iframe a popup window is presented when user clicks a specific button and the popup opens at lets say at this url "https://paypal.com". After user navigation on popup, paypal at the end of the flow redirects user to this url "https://example.com/success". At this point when user is navigated to /success I add some data to local storage which I expect to trigger the storage event listener and the onStorageFunc to run. This doesn't happen, while in other browsers it works as expected.

Since both popup and iframe are under the same url (https://example.com) and I have used requestStorageAccess, I would expect this to work normally. Can you please help me to find out what is going wrong here? In the past I had the same problem but it was fixed when I added 'requestStorageAccess' and 'allow-storage-access-by-user-activation'. Now I can see it happening again.

Am using FF 109.01 (64) and the latest Windows 10 (64) ver. I uses their Virus program.

With my bank security settings I have check marked to not use 2FA Bank home page asks for a security code anyway.

This has happened to me months ago and all of a sudden everything was OK. ... and now it has happened again. When I use Edge, Bank home page does not ask for a security code. This is the way I would like FF to perform.

I have phoned the Bank IT Help desk and they are bafflled. They had me try a bunch of acrobats but nothing works.

Obviously there is something in FF to tweak. I am using

I have searched and searched on internet, but no solution. I have used FF since it was a baby, and I want to stick with it. Thanks

Hello,

I use several websites that utilize mutual TLS authentication, also known as client certificate authentication. As a developer behind some of these websites, we will frequently launch and relaunch some of these sites to test different changes, so we don't usually bother with getting a properly signed certificate for the site. Developers must add a security exception for accessing the sites, which then prompt for user authentication using client certificates.

The problem I am encountering is that the "Remember this decision" checkbox on the "User Identification Request" does not seem to be working properly. There is one site which makes several connections when the page is first loaded and we have to click "Ok" on the "User Identification Request" about 10 times before the page fully loads. Other sites will randomly prompt for the request again when fetching data. The hostname and port do not change between requests.

I've tried replicating this behavior with a basic Apache httpd server setup with client authentication, but it doesn't seem to happen for the basic site. If this is happening due to a server configuration issue, I would like to know what it is that is causing it so that I can fix it. When using Chrome, this behavior does not happen.

Thank you!

Lately firefox have been buggy and have closed all my tabs, or so I tought, but after using task manager I see it's up an running, but if I just use the firefox button a new windows open, but if I right-click and tells it to open av often used site, it pops up with all my saved tabs. I've tried using the exit button in the menu, but it makes no difference.

I've tried fixing it a few times via the installer, havent uninstalled it yet as I have to be in the office to do a complete re-install.

But the funny thing after the lastest update is that is I open firefox, my teams app go down, and if I open teams, Firefox goes down... I've tried using safe mode in firefox, but it made no difference.

There should be a guide by now or easy settings built into the browser to change these settings.

I'm having trouble with websites that think I'm a Bot, because they are detecting multiple operating systems/ OS, due to my settings and privacy extensions.

Is there anything in About:Config that I can change to set my OS to Windows??

Common methods for websites detecting someone's OS is by using Javascript, User Agent, and TCP/IP fingerprinting.

How do I fake the Javascript test? There's extensions that block Scripts but that leaves people unable to use websites, is there any command I can put in and set as default?

User Agent test - There's a few extensions that will work to change this, though if I can change this through About:config or other settings I would like to know.

The TCP/IP protocol controls how data is sent between computers and how the sender and receiving computers are identified. Mostly this is done identically by every computer, but some small parameters are implemented differently by different operating systems, creating a ‘fingerprint’.

I'm told this is very difficult to fake, but has a larger error rate anyway.

I am often switching office and change my system default printer always first when I am in a new place. I learned from the community here that the right thing to do for having Firefox/Thunderbird follow this choice is set print_printer to 'default'. The problem is that this does only work for a while. As soon as I use the selection dropdown in the printing dialog (e.g. to exceptionally select the PDF printer) it will overwrite 'default' by that printer. The consequence is that from that time on I have to manually select the printer or got to the config editor again to set 'default'. Is there any simple solution I overlooked?

If not can you tell me how I can make a feature request? A simple solution would be to include something like 'System Default' in the dropdown list in the printing dialog. Although for my taste, it would be better to have the selection in the printer dialog only temporary and return to the previous printer selection for the next printing.

I've noticed something odd the last few days. occasionally, Archive of Our Own— also known as AO3— will stop working properly after visiting a couple different stories, being unusable for most of the day as the pages will come up blank no matter what I click on, or even if I try to connect to a bookmarked page. This is not a consistent thing however. I recently updated to version 109.0.1 of Firefox, but this started happening a few days before the update. It also just happened about five minutes ago. Should I clear my cache and try again, or is there a website issue on their end I'm just not seeing?

EDIT: Ok, so I tried clearing cache and cookies and this is still occurring. No clue why.

I use windows10 32 bit on an HP G2 small form factor desktop. Today I got an error message from the malwarebytes app that it had blocked a web page. When I looked at the app protection record I saw multiple instances of it blocking firefox.exe (see attached). The report mentions multiple instances of the app fox.exe being blocked on port 443 with different ip addresses and connection listed as "outbound". I am not very knowledgeable about the web, so some help would be great. The report goes back into January although today was the first time I saw the pop up warning. I only have 2 extensions installed and as far as I know they are legit. Any ideas on what I should do?
