Hi, I like to go to random websites sometimes, but I recently found out that site evil.com tries to use an exploit and to install a malicious file. I wonder if it's a problem with browser. I'm using waterfox, a firefox-based browser. I'm attaching a screenshot from windows defender logs. I don't know if it's important, but I have a virtualization enabled.

Can I go into About:Config and add a new timezone?? that the Javascript request will find.

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 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.

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.

I recently changed to a 4G network based router because of poor internet speeds in the area.

Since changing I have noticed that when using my TP-Link AC1900 network adapter, I can no longer access www.google.com specifically. I can still access the site on Edge (using the adapter) and when I change from the adapter to the primary wifi card in the laptop, Google works again in Firefox.

Due to the things I've tried (listed below) I've come to believe that it must be some strange interaction between the adapter, firefox, and the network.

I've tried the following: - Deleting all cookies and data - Reset all preferences in Firefox - Disabling and re-enabling addons - Fresh install of Windows (including Firefox) - Reinstalling TP-Link Drivers - Changing DNS to Googles servers - Firefox network settings (no-proxy etc...) - Checking the firewall settings on Windows (disabling, allowing firefox.exe, etc...) - Restarting the router - Changed some of the DNS settings in about:config, but resetting after to be sure

I've looked around for pretty much every similar post, some people saying the issue resolved itself, but any solutions I've found so far haven't worked. This is beginning to become a bit frustrating as I mainly use Google to search :( Hopefully someone who's had a smilar issue can help me resolve it, thanks!

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.

Hello, I've noticed a change since the last update and don't understand why?

When opening the bookmarks tab I would get the drop down of a long list of links I have saved. I sometimes bunch them into groups so when looking down the long list, I can see the link I want better when more than one are from the same website.

But my issue is that when I went through the list and found that group of links, I could click onto one to open the page. In the past before the update I could click on the bookmarks drop down again, and still see the same area of links I had just clicked on.

Now when the bookmarks drop down closes it defaults to the top of the list and I need to scan down to find the links I was looking at again. Why? Yes when I closed the browser off and reopened it the bookmarks list would start at the top again. But if left opened I could click on the bookmarks tab and it would open to the same link area I clicked onto last.

Is there a way in settings I can reverse this annoying, unnecessary change.

A word to the Firefox workers that like changing things for no reason. I use Firefox because I like the things your browser has that the others don't. Keep taking the little things away that people like, which you seem to keep doing, then my favourite browser will just become "The same old s#*@" like all the others.

Until recently, when I press Ctrl+B, I get a bar at the top of the browser containing a link "Manage bookmarks". I can click the link to bring up the "Manage bookmarks" window.

That's not as convenient as the older behaviour wherein the "Manage bookmarks" window appears immediately when I press Ctrl+B, and it also consumes about half a centimetre of space across the entire width of the browser window (which is a lot with Firefox window maximized). I find also that the need to move the pointer to the link and click it interrupts flow, which is why people use hot keys like Ctrl+B. However, at least the "Manage bookmarks" link worked.

As of approximately a few days ago, clicking the "Manage bookmarks" link does nothing. It does not bring up the "Manage bookmarks" window. Neither does Shift-clicking the link, Ctrl-clicking, or Shift+Ctrl-clicking. I think it must be something about the most recent update. I'm on version 109.0.1 (64-bit) and I'm on Windows 10.

Does anyone else see this? How can I get the "Manage bookmarks" link to work?
