I recently traveled to Australia for two weeks. While there, I used my mac laptop (with Firefox as my primary browser) on a mix of both wifi-without-VPN and hotel wifi with a VPN back to my home network activated.

I have been back home for more than a week. Other browsers on the same laptop as well as other devices (like my phone) that I took with me on the trip correctly reflect my location (east coast, USA). However, Firefox stubbornly insists that I am still in Australia. The net effect of this has been to break my access to YouTubeTV, which is not available in Australia.

I have tried: - Logging fully out of my google account on firefox and logging back in (at which point the 2FA prompt on my phone says I'm trying to log back in from Australia) - Deleting all cookies, cache and website data - Fully uninstalling Firefox, including deleting the Firefox folder in ApplicationSupport

None of these have had any effect.

Within YouTubeTV, I can force an update to my location, which will temporarily reflect correctly that I am in the US. But it still won't let me play anything if I'm using Firefox, and within Firefox, will soon revert to location unknown. Other browsers on this laptop, and other devices, work fine.

I am at my wit's end. Please advise.

Windows 10 64bit pc. After factory reset and reinstall of Firefox, 2 extensions are enabled but the menu bar won't allow them. These worked OK before the reset.

Troubleshooting within Firefox won't work because it disables the extensions.

The messages from Extensions say "Can't read and change data on this site" The extensions are enabled (turned on).

The 2 extensions are Malwarebytes Browser Guard and Video DownloadHelper I am using DuckDuckGo as my browser. I tried switching to Google, but same problem.

Prior to updating to Windows 11 I was able to specify the bookmark folder that I wanted to save the bookmark in when I pressed "Bookmark Current Tab" or "Ctrl-D". Now it automatically saves the bookmark in the "Other Bookmarks" folder instead of allowing me to save it in my desired folder? I then have to find the saved bookmark and manually move it to the desired folder. Is there a fix for this or is this a permanent feature change? Thanks for your help.

For the past two days, I am unable to log on to my iCloud account through a Firefox Browser. I've tried to do so on two different computers which have accessed iCloud through Firefox many, many times. However, I have no problem logging on to my iCloud account using an Edge Browser.

When I try to log on to my iCloud account using Firefox after entering my user name and password, I receive the two factor authentication from iCloud on my iPhone. However at this point, iCloud immediately gives me an error message (screen shot attached), and I am unable to enter the authentication code. I can only return to the log on page.

Since this problem occurs using Firefox on two different computers, but I have no problem accessing iCloud using a different browser, I have to assume this is a Firefox issue, but I do not see that this is a systemic problem. Any suggestions? I hate using Edge for anything, but I am on iCloud.com a lot, so this is inconvenient.

I feel like I've been seeing people online complaining about this for a couple of years now, and it's shocking to me that I still couldn't find a solution in a thorough google search. Has anyone found a fix for the mandatory restart Firefox now pushes whenever there's an update available? Basically, out of nowhere, the program will refuse to open any new tabs or load any pages, instead giving the error message in the image. A restart is forced, and all private tabs are lost without warning. This is completely unacceptable browser behavior. As far as I know, there is no setting or about:config option that will fix this. Has anyone found a work-around?

I've been a loyal Firefox user for a couple of decades at this point, but this nonsense has me seriously considering switching to something else. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

Hi all Firefoxers,

There are a few sites that I always access via a URL that could look like :

https://device.domain.com/admin/

When I went to visit that device, typing in the URL bar "device.domain..." , Firefox's 1st default suggestion shows as https://device.domain.com/

The problem is that I never visited that site, the way to access this device is https://device.domain.com/admin/ - there's no way to reconfigure the device and have an auto-redirect to .../admin location.

https://device.domain.com/ is not in my Browsing History nor do I have an open-tab. In the settings Privacy->Address Bar, disabling "Browsing History" removes https://device.domain.com/ from the suggestion list but it also removes all suggestion from the history. This is the expected behavior, the bug required fix isn't related to this.

If the "Base URL" isn't saved in the Browsing History, how can someone tell Firefox to only suggest absolute entries from the history?

Unable to access Craigslist, Reddit, and similar sites due to SSL issues. Previously, I could click "Advance" and accept the risk to proceed, but this option is now missing. Clicking on "Advance" only displays a dropdown with an SSL error.

While I appreciate browsers prioritizing security, there should be an owner override. After all, I own my PC, and I should have the freedom to make choices, even if it means accepting potential security risks.

Did Firefox change this override option, or do we need to switch to another browser if we encounter this issue?

This problem occurs on My wife's and my machines. My wife has a printer. I do not. When we try to print the preview shows only a few lines or at best a half page. Even if we want to print multiple pages that's all that shows up. We have "print all" as the default setting. The problem started about a month ago. I think it has something to do with the newer versions of Firefox.

Tiny URL is more useful than the rather silly 'Pocket' which just seems to be a page full of adverts
