Hello to all,

I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years of developments... Why? To keep this allowed makes it too easy for hackers, especially with multiple screens and a shadow/background screens available which can be running in the background, not seen, when hackers do that.. Kind of the way TeamViewer allows help to be provided remotely. Kind of screen sharing. Oh well...

Maybe need lots of complaints from you all to get this changed?..


Try yourselves to use file://C:/ with 2 // and file:///C:/ with 3 // and both are allowing access to the whole file system and any data file. BONKERS??? But why to use 3 /// if 2 // still works? Insider's job or programming conflict? Why would Firefox programmers allow that? I do not understand...

I tried to use selective website blocker, but for file:/// that addon says that the page is not supported... Maybe another type of addon could be developed for this to be blocked and secured once and for all, but not sure if Firefox would allow such an access or such a blocking. May cause issues with Downloads and accessing download folder from within Firefox. HOWEVER, they could block any system or file access from the ADDRESS BAR and SEARCH BAR and then do a work-around solution by developing a special warning 'dialog message' each time when any user (owner or remote user) tries to access forlder to see or use any file. That would be a lot like a guest account requiring password to access special folder or file, or wants to perform an action usually not allowed for a guest user. Password is required for that each time, or at leats a visual confirmation. That would help, I hope...

Would need to re-educate users after this! TOO DANGEROUS TO KEEP THIS IN SUCH A WAY AS IT IS NOW!!!!

DOES FIREFOX TEAM UNDERSTAND THIS? Maybe they forgot about this, maybe they did not figure out how to solve this, or maybe someone from an inside is helping hackers to have a very easy access? Not sure, but this "open doors to all system and data files for anyone" is shocking!


What about business or government people? What about online bullying and harrassment? What about privacy about which Firefox writes so much? Need more complaints to make this a serious issue. So, everyone, please write your own comments or complaints to Firefox and Chrome directly and maybe they will listen. This may take more work than we think, but my ideas may help. What about your ideas? Express them below and maybe they will help as well.


You all can ask them for this to be blocked or solved, so ask. Maybe my ideas will help to get this moving. Write your own to them as well. And Microsoft may need to get involved as well because Firefox, and from what I read, Chrome allows this too... Other browsers may be doing that as well...!!!!!! There are loads of various browsers available!!!! I read something about Windows Policies, but I do not understand what that is...


(( !!! )) If any of you will try any system changes in an attempt to try solving this issue, make sure you are okay to risk with crashed system requiring reinstall or recovery to be used, and then, write down all the changes you do in detail before carrying any further and applying them because that may ruin the system without a way to recover it.

Thank you in advance.

This is BEYOND excusable.

I opened up FF today, from a nice new update, to see that there are now paid ads that will force their way onto my browser's favorites. Is... is there a reason for this? I know it wasn't an add-on that did this, since I only have 1 installed for the past couple of years without issues.

Is there a setting for this? Or is it just time to move on to a new browser? I'd rather use Edge than deal with a browser that adds sponsored crap without my permission.

Has anyone else reported severe battery draining on a new M1 chipped MacBook Pro? I noticed that the battery was draining as quickly or quicker compared with the one in my old 2014 15" MacBook Pro. I checked Activity Monitor and saw that the CPU utilization for the Firefox WebExtensions process was consistently north of 99%, even while I was doing nothing.

I've switched to using Safari and I'm now getting the incredible battery life I expected having read all of the reviews for the new M1 laptop.

I've been using Safari (on battery, with the screen at full brightness) for over an hour now and it hasn't moved from 100% yet.

This morning it went from fully charged to below 20% in less than five hours with brightness at 50% or less for half of that time. I'm sure I can't be the only new MacBook user who has noticed this?

Please fix the problem Mozilla as I'd much prefer to use Firefox vs Safari but not if it kills battery time like this.

Howdy. Some pages won't open, although the URL is correct. Copying that URL will usually open in Edge. Also many pictures, and/or ads won't show, just the revolving circle, or broken picture icon, but again some wil show in the Edge. But I prefer to use FF if possible. I have tried disabling things like Duck Duck Go and FF security etc, etc, but maybe there is something I'm not aware of. At least one place (AlSears) said their pic is PDF, but other PDFs open. The following URL is Auckland Motorway cameras, and many of those do not open, but show the broken pic icon, but everything is fine in The Edge. https://www.aucklandmotorways.co.nz/

The following URL, the Upgrade link just has the circle running. https://store.alsearsmd.com/?s=LIFETIME#

New Zealand official Met Service weather, if I change from 7 Days to 48 hours, or vice versa, FF completely seizes up and I have to End Task in Task Manager. https://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/locations/auckland

I'm not aware of any AdBlockers Plugins and extensions shown below.

Any thoughts, anyone?

My wife and I are both suddenly blocked from opening a fav website: https://www.freedomconsciousness.com/

We now get a 403 Forbidden webpage (generated by Wordfence) instead.

Ditto when using the utube webpage, then in the About tab, trying to reach the website that way.

Trying the Mozilla technique of clicking on the lock icon ... I get both a secure connection message and a not-secure-connected message. Nothing I try after that affects anything. What to do???

As of recently, after opening "Wetteronline.de" the whole page with all graphics is visible, but instantly switches and shows just text entries, only way down some scattered graphics and textes. This happens in Firefox; not in Chrome. In Firefox I disabled all add-ons one after another, deleted cache and cookies, but this did not help. How can I fix this problem?

The issue: on all sites, whenever media with audio plays (either automatically, or when I click), the audio stops after 2-3 seconds. If it is video, the video continues to play without sound. When it is audio-only, such as bandcamp, the timestamp stops. Audio resumes playing if I rewind or manually move the timestamp handle (scrubber?) back. This must be repeated each time the media is paused. Audio does not resume playing if play and pause are pressed, or if the site is refreshed.

Troubleshooting steps attempted so far:

  • Tried a different browser. Microsoft Edge works just fine.
  • Allowed autoplay for both audio and video
  • Cleared cache, and ensured that cookies were allowed
  • Turned off all adblockers
  • Uninstalled flash
  • Refreshed firefox settings

I'm at a loss!

Have tried just about everything (i think) as i have read in the other support posts. When i boot my computer and try firefox, it loads for a second and then crashes asking to send the crash report and to restore the tab. I click yes and it crashes again with the same window. Sometimes if i reboot it all of a sudden works. But literally everyday when i log on for the first time it crashes, then i reboot and sometimes it crashes, and then sometimes on the second reboot it just works somehow. I have tried installing earlier versions, refreshing firefox, starting in safe mode etc.

Here are a few of the crash IDs that were submitted successfully (others failed to submit). Thanks for your help.
