Hi,

I'm used to deploying/configuring Firefox in an organization with settings in autoconfig.js, etc. Recently, I've seen that some settings are honored, others aren't, so I started using policies.json as well as keeping my autoconfig.js. Can they work together?

In any case, I am unable to disable app update with either of them. I have the following in policies.json:

{

   "policies": {

"DisableFirefoxAccounts": true, "DisablePocket": true,

       "DisableAppUpdate": true,

"DontCheckDefaultBrowser": true, "DNSOverHTTPS": { "Enabled": false }, "Certificates": { "ImportEnterpriseRoots": true } "PopupBlocking": { "Allow": ["http://10.215.144.56:8080", "https://intranet.mydomain.org"], "Default": true | false, "Locked": true | false }

   }

}

I'm also showing a snippet of my autoconfig.js file:

lockPref("app.update.auto", false); lockPref("app.update.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false); lockPref("app.update.url", ""); lockPref("app.update.url.details", ""); lockPref("app.update.url.manual", ""); lockPref("signon.rememberSignons", false); lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", false);

The problem is that when I start Firefox 78.3.0 ESR and go to the about Firefox window, I can see that the app update is not disabled.

How can I make sure that all the above settings in autoconfig.js are actually honored?

Thanks

Similar to this article, "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files" I am unable to download any files via browser. I am up to date on versioning (Windows 10, v81.0 64-bit), and I tried all of the steps in the article.

I have also tried resetting the "security.dialog enable_delay" value (it was correct at 1000) to 0 and downloads worked again, but setting it back to 1000 (or even 500) and the problem returns.

I also noticed that whether or not I have the General Option set to "use this folder" or "ask each time", I get the same dialog box and the OK button is greyed out.

First I have to say that I absolutely HATE HATE HATE how Mozilla breaks everything with every upgrade now. Hate it. It feels like getting bent over by IE all over again.

I upgraded from 68.something to 78.3 esr and now my tabs are teeny tiny and the one that is selected gets bigger and leaks into the web page (see pic). I already fixed the "tabs on top of everything" issue that the upgrade introduced, but now this.

How do I make my regular tabs and pinned tabs bigger like they were before? And stop the current tab from leaking over the bottom boundary into the web page?

Why won't my multirow bookmarks toolbar display all of the bookmarks in it? No matter what editing I've done to the userChrome.css file in my profile, the toolbar is either 2 or 3 rows and simply refuses to populate the 3d row to any extent - and it should be about 5 rows long. Here is the .css file:

  1. PersonalToolbar{
 --multirow-bmb-n-rows: 5; /* Control how many rows are shown before scrolling */
 --multirow-bmb-row-margin: 4px; /* Control how much spacing is between rows */
 max-height: none !important;

}

  1. PlacesToolbar > hbox{
 display: block;
 width: 100vw;

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems{
 display: flex;
 flex-wrap: wrap;
 /* --uc-bm-padding is defined in autohide_bookmarks_toolbar.css */
 max-height: calc(var(--multirow-bmb-n-rows) * (4px + 1em + (2 * (var(--multirow-bmb-row-margin) + var(--uc-bm-padding,2px))))) !important;
 overflow-y:auto;
 scrollbar-color: var(--lwt-accent-color) var(--toolbar-bgcolor) ;
 scrollbar-width: thin;

}

This should be doable. Can someone please help me fix this? Thanks.

It's impossible to edit a URL in the new and terrible address bar. This is a problem, and just one tiny example among many, when a website shows a non English page because I am in some other country. I used to be able to change .../de/etc. to /en-us/etc. and get the correct page. Now I have to click dots, select to copy, paste into notepad, make the change and paste-and-go.

Can this completely idiotic behavior be changed? Who is this aimed at, anyway? Address bars have worked the same for decades at this point - and whilest enhancing it is fine, disabling something as basic to ALL Windows or Mac as editing is insane.

No it does not and the only thing I did was to install Chrome because a web site was not displaying properly.

Hi, PDF File handling has recently changed - For the worse for me and it's become really frustrating.

When I right click a PDF file link and select "open link in new tab", why does Firefox then ask me how I want to treat the file? I just asked it to open the file in a new tab, so it should be obvious what I want to do - asking again is illogical.

Not only that, before the file handling dialog box, it opens a new tab next to the tab I'm in and then closes it when the dialog box appears - When I select the unnecessary "open in Firefox" (I just asked it to open in a new tab), it now creates a new tab at the END of my tabs and steals focus.

I also get the file handling dialog box when I ask to "save link as", when logically I should just get the save location dialog box.

How do I get the old behaviour back?

Thanks folks

I started to download some files from a public web site and noticed, after downloading a few files, that the next few downloads all refused to actually start, showing unknown time left. To clarify, a few downloads would work fine, but then I would attempt the next download and it would cause the download to hang. Worse, I cannot download any files - at all - beyond that until I close my browser and reopen it.

This has happened ive times in ten minutes. Every time, restarting the browser causes the files I attempted to download previously to immediately successfully download without any intervention from myself upon relaunch. I can then download another few files, and then it starts to hang again. I have been forced to move this downloading activity over to Google Chrome while reporting the issue, and so far Chrome does not seem to have any issues.

Any ideas?

For some reason periodically I get the following error displaying when trying to view a specific page:

-A forbidden parameter 'language' was passed to this page in the URL or a form.-

Clearing the site's data/cookies solves the issue for a short while and then it returns.

I understand the error is generated via 'Bootstrap' javascript files, but it doesn't explain the cause.

Can anyone shed any information on it, the cause, and above all how to fix it?

For the last several days I have woken up to see firefox has installed itself onto my PC in german with no UAC notifications, no history of where it is coming from(from what I could find). Each time I have seen it, I have uninstalled it and searched through the computer to find any related files or folders left behind to remove but it still comes back. I saw an answered question of a similar problem but it did not solve my issue. I have run several scans with my antivirus and anti malware but none of them have come up with any results before or after the removal of the program. There has been no changes to any of my system or security settings I can find, no new downloads or updates since before, during or after this has begun.

I am hoping to get some help in solving this so that it does not appear unwanted again.

I am using Firefox 81.0.

Specifically, I am trying to "Enable earning" on the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards shopping site -- https://rapidrewardsshopping.southwest.com/. I have uninstalled all ad blockers and trackers (AdBlocker Plus, Ghostery, Duck Duck Go, etc.) and turned off Firefox Enhanced Tracking Protection for the site. And still I get this warning at the top of the page:

"AdBlock, uBlock, AdBlockPlus or another ad blocker or Firefox Tracking Protection may be preventing you from earning points on your shopping. "

Does anyone know what is going on?

I am running Kaspersky Total Security. Could that be the culprit? What troubleshooting can I do to find the root cause of the Southwest site detecting an "ad blocker of Firefox Tracking Protection"?
