hi guys and girls of mozilla,

ive a little issue with a custom homepage i made which i want to use as my new tab page. im on linux and use firefox 76.0.1 (64bit).

i set up a autoconfig.cfg file with this code:

// var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components;

  • set new tab page */

try { Cu.import("resource:///modules/AboutNewTab.jsm"); var newTabURL = "/home/joe/.mozilla/firefox/h75u1z1z.default/startpage/index.html"; AboutNewTab.newTabURL = newTabURL; } catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

i also set up a autoconfig.js file with this code:

// First line should be a comment pref("general.config.filename", "autoconfig.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.sandbox_enabled", false);

theyre saved in lib/firefox and lib/firefox/defaults/prefs

i then put firefox to open new tabs with a blank page. now it works like this. when i click open a new tab i get a blank page. but in the urlbar is the file selected. now i only need to press enter and i have my new tab page.

the question now is- how can i force firefox to press enter for me. that it opens the file directly and doesnt need me to press enter.

can u spot any errors in the code i copied from a thread in reddits/r/firefox CSS forum?

or is there a setting i can change which makes it the page opens by itself?

ill add two pics- one when i just opend the new tab and one after i clicked enter

I am running T-bird v60.9 on an old Mac with OS 10.9. I know it's hard to believe, but I do not want to update to v68 until an annoying issue with the Calendar is fixed (if it's ever fixed). Can I stop the "Wouldn't you like to update" dialog from popping up every day? Don't worry, I am running T-bird 68 (with the broken Calendar) on a newer Mac, so I'm not totally in the woods.

Thank you.

Well i0ve been reading lot of thread that describes this error, and none of them have a clear solution, so, im navigating normally on firefox while i work and suddenly if i need to download something from shutter it throws me this error, sometimes when im on slack the files that are being uploadded doesnt show and if i try to upload it doesnt work... recently i tried to change my profile, using firefox on another pc in the exact moment as the error show up, and also downgrading the about_config security level, i tried enabling DNS over HTTP and nothing worked, apparently ewhen i close and restart firefox it works, but it will continue showing up randomly and its kinda frustatring, it also happens on edge at the same time but on chrome it works... and i REALLY dont want to change from firefox to another browser... i really love this....

Dear community,

After my OS re-installation I was hoping and I was pretty sure, that my Firefox account is backing-up all of my bookmarks. I have done this again in the past and I had the bookmarks bar there always waiting for me intact. This time though I had to reset my Firefox account password as I forgot to store it somewhere and after that I managed to get access to my account but the bookmarks are nowhere to be found.

Is there a way to restore them without having a backup file (JSON or something else from the previous OS installation?). Is Mozilla storing these bookmarks somewhere so I can have them again but from the "cloud"? If not it is quite catastrophic for me. I hope there is a solution!

Thank you in advance!

Hi. I am using Firefox for years, mainly due to it's increased security and privacy settings it provides. As you can see in the attached screenshots, I have set Firefox in Privacy & Security tab to Strict Tracking Protection and to Never remember history. The problem is that, when I close and reopen Firefox, NOT all cached content gets deleted automatically!

Please see my screenshot of Cookies and Site Data section. You will see that there is 1.1MB of Cached Web Content which is not deleted. If I don't manually delete this content (e.g. every week), the size of it gets grow to a very big number of MB (400-500MB).

Why Firefox is not deleting the Cached Web Content automatically since I told it explicitly to do it by choosing Never remember history?

I am using Mozilla Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows. This happens in all of my PCs..

Is this a Bug?

I am finding it impossible to access the following website from within a private window or with Firefox set to Never remember history...

https://groceries.asda.com/

I see the cookie warning, the top banner of the page and a spinning green circle.

The website operates as expected on my PC with Chrome in incognito mode.

Similarly, the same issue occurs with Firefox Focus on my Android phone, but not with In Browser or Dolphin Zero.

This is no deal breaker for me but I am curious about what may be causing it to happen.

When logged in to google account through Mozilla Firefox, I cannot log out of by clicking on the profile picture, as the click does not open the log out menu. And when using google image search, when an image is clicked it is unresponsive and the picture I clicked doesn't load. What can I DO? I tried many options which are there in various forums, but none of it solves the problem. Desperately thinking of abandoning using Firefox.

I'll be browsing a website, and with no rhyme or reason Firefox (on Windows PC) will decide that this website no longer exists and is no longer available, even the page I was on 2 minutes prior is no longer available (it even tried telling me that mozilla.org no longer existed). But the same site continues to work fine on the Firefox on my Android device.

The sites eventually "come back", but it's not very productive for a site to "disappear" in the middle of something.

I'm running a brand new install of Debian. Initially the install comes with Firefox version 68.7.0 ESR. After setting up my Firefox preferences, I tried installing uBlock origin. The install seemed to go fine, but I noticed that the uBlock button does not appear to the right of the address bar by the bookmarks/sidebars/firefox account buttons. I went on Youtube to check to see if it was actually blocking ads and it is not blocking. When I open the addons page to check if it is there (Tools > Addons) it shows uBlock origin as an enabled addon.

I opened synaptic to see if there is an upgrade version available and saw that there was (Version 68.8.0 ESR). I went ahead and installed the upgrade, but there is no improvement, still seeing ads on Youtube. I removed it and reinstalled, but also no improvement. I've been searching google for answers but other than references to the issues last year with addons being broken I am not finding anything helpful.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Your help is appreciated.
