I asked this before, but I do not understand the thinking/logic for the answer I got. I have a specific website I want to maintain the cookies it writes to my computer. When I enter those cookie urls into the EXCEPTIONS dialogue box/window, then set to delete history on exit from FF, why won't the exceptions save those specific cookies? I don't get why there is an exceptions function if I cannot make those exceptions apply and save my specific website cookies.

If there is no helpful answer, there is no need to reply. In any fashion. Ever.

Thanks for your consideration,

Hi,

We are using firefox as the browser client for a webrtc based video streaming application. The other client is Gstreamer webrtcbin. The communication works fine with FIPS mode disabled, but it fails when we enable FIPS as part of security. The Gstreamer client sends an SDP offer to the firefox browser client, but it fails to create an answer and respond back. The WebAPI (RTCPeerConnection.createOffer) fails with below exception at application code.

"UnknownError: The operation failed for an unknown transient reason"

Also, tried to check some failure message in browser log and found as below. Not sure if it is related to the failure.

NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE: Component returned failure code: 0x80070057 (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE) [nsICryptoHash.init]


System setup:


OS - OpenSUSE 15 SP3 Firefox version - 78.13.0esr (we also tried with version 91.10.0esr)


Any quick help will be much appreciated as we are stuck with this.

Thanks, Saurav

Hi Guys,

over the pas month i've been gettign an error where my windows 10 apps slowly stop working, so it will start with the news and interests (clicking on it just does not seem to work, then the search will not work again clicking on it will not work, then eventually the start menu will stop working.

now the reason i'm posting here is for weeks i've trying to pin down the cause and today after rebuilding my windows porfile again on friday its happened again (ps the only way to resolve this issue is to rebuild my windows profile as reinstalling windows apps and store do not work), and i've looked at programs and features and firefox updated itself today.

so my thoughts are its when firefox updates itself that my windows apps start to corrupt, so has anyone else experienced this and do any of you guys have any suggestions on how to stop this happening?

i hope this makes sense

When I try to print same label from a PC laptop, it prints fine.

I'm primarily on a MAC, and do a lot of postage, so it would be nice if there was a fix.... or workaround other than using a PC...

Microsoft Excel is no longer listed i Applications as download option. All files downloaded automatically are stored as Microsoft Word files, not just excel files. I can change individual files manually to .xlsx which is a nuisance, but this also happens with Zip files (7Zip) and I am at a loss as to how to change them when they are downloaded as a Word document.

This does not happen on a newer MacBook Pro, but I need it to work with the older version. The older Mac is MacBook Pro 9.2 with MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.7 Firefox is version 103.0

Good Afternoon,

Yesterday I went to use my Arkscan Label printer as I always have for years and it distorts the image very largely as appose to fitting 4 x 6 as it always has. I re downloaded the driver, checked my setting from my label shipping site (etsy) and all is the same. My co-workers is still working, (she does not do automatic updates). After reaching out to technical support from Arkscan it is a widespread problem after your latest update to firefox. I was suggested to use a different browser such as Chrome or Edge. Will you be addressing this issue ASAP or should I use another browser from here on out?

Thank you,

I am not sure what category this goes into since I don't know if this is a cookie problem or a security problem or what.

I can download individual files from Google Drive just fine. But when I try to download entire folders from Google Drive, I can't download them as of a couple days ago. It looks the file zips, but then it won't let me actually download the file. Instead I get an error message "Can't download file. To download this file, try enabling third-party cookies for Drive."

The problem first started a couple days ago. (I have Firefox set to update automatically. Checking my update history, it looks like it started with 103.0.1 when it was updated Aug 1) The day the problem started, after trying just about everything, I cleared all my cache, site data, and cookies. That did fix the problem. But today when I got on, the problem came back. It was a huge hassle to log in again and do 2FA for everything again last time. If I have to do that every couple of days, I'm dropping Firefox because as much as I love it I just can't.

My browser privacy settings are set to Standard. I also currently have Firefox set to delete all cookies and site data upon close, with the exception of a list of websites I use every day. That includes drive.google.com. I have since added every google website I can think of, including the ones that it looks like Google tries to access when downloading zipped folders (as seen in Chrome) such as takeout-pa.clients6.google.com.

Things I have also tried besides clearing all site data:

  • starting Firefox with all add-ons disabled
  • turning Enhanced Tracking Protection off entirely on Google Drive
  • Changing my security settings from Standard to Custom and changing "Cross-site tracking cookies, and isolate other cross-site cookies" to just "Cross-site tracking cookies"
  • Changing my security settings from Standard to Custom and not blocking any cookies at all
  • Going into about:config and changing the network.cookie.sameSite.laxByDefault setting from false to true (It was on false when problem started. I changed it back after troubleshooting.)
  • Doing all of the above in various combinations

If it matters, when I was changing the laxByDefault setting, I can see two other settings with that phrase but I don't know what they do exactly. If changing either of these would help, let me know. network.cookie.sameSite.laxByDefault.disabledHosts [the rest is blank] network.cookie.sameSite.laxPlusPOST.timeout [currently set to 120]

And Google Drive still claims it can't download zipped files. I am going slightly insane because I have to download several large folders from Google Drive every day. Currently my solution is to download all files in Chrome.

I can also try uninstalling and going back to 102 somehow, but that's not a good permanent solution. I guess I can also try clearing the cache again. But there's got to be a better way. It's way too much of a hassle to do that every couple of days.

Please help. Thank you.

After doing an update to Firefox (currently on 102.0.1), the settings for what happens when I click on a PDF file always seems to reset to 'save file', when what I want (and what I have to keep changing back to) is 'Always ask'.

Is this a known issue or is it something about my environment that causes this?

My system is running Windows 11 on an HP laptop with an AMD 7-5800U CPU and 8Gb of memory. [I'm posting this on my desktop machine which doesn't seem to exhibit the same behaviour - Windows 10 on an Intel 8500 CPU and 16Gb of memory]

Recently I wanted to install Firefox on this PC (my Dell laptop). Im using Windows 10 64-bit 19044.1415 OS build. I tried to use Firefox as I have been using chrome on my other past devices for years now. I tried to install FireFox multiple times for Windows 64x, but it didn't work; I used Mozilla's desktop download link. is there some particular download I need to get for my device? (all firmware is installed to its latest version)

'The Problem: I use the chrome browser literally for everything, and it is what I'm using to write this question. Anywho all other browsers, including Firefox, fail to load on my device; I've tried reinstalling, I've tried factory resetting my PC, and I've read countless articles on how to fix this, yet none has worked. The issue is when I click on the browser icon or try to run the program, Mozilla doesn't open. Instead, it shows a black screen for a split second, then nothing. And nothing works either. No amount of troubleshooting, firewall deactivating, hardware wiping, installing the latest version of java, and crap will work. It's absurd, and I'm genuinely frustrated. Can someone help me?

I have my bookmarks toolbar organized by folders. Within the folders, the bookmarks won't stay sorted. I can sort them in the library window, but a few seconds later, as I am watching, they resort themselves seemingly randomly. The same order is shown in the browser sidebar and the library window, and it continues to change every few seconds.

I use Firefox on both my Windows PC and my iPhone, I turned on syncing for a while but turning it off and restarting the browser does not stop this annoying behavior.

In addition, some bookmarks duplicate themselves and I end up with hundreds of the same bookmark. This behavior seems to have ceased when I turned of syncing, maybe this is a second problem?

How can I stop this and keep them sorted and synced, while avoiding the hundreds of duplicated bookmarks?

How to get FF 103.0. to OPEN a NEW window maximized when clicking a link in the current maximized window running Windows 10 Pro x64.

i.e., I have a window open maximized. It has another window/page available through a link/hot-spot within the current window. I click that link but the new window opens NOT maximized. On ONLY SOME windows, clicking that link/hot-spot WILL open the new window maximized, but ONLY sometimes. Why? And why doesn't FF open a new window maximized when the current window IS maximized?

Doesn't make good sense to this old man.

BUT due to some unwanted (really irritating) search suggestion were being shown to me by firefox, I had to uninstall firefox from my system.

    • Throughout the process, I'd kept syncing ON always!!

But when I installed firefox again and after loggedin, I'm syncing everything but this is restoring (syncing) very old data which doesn't have my latest bookmarks, extenstions & saved logins!!

How DO I get my all data???
