Do you really want to use HTML Gmail?

You're about to use a version of Gmail designed for slower connections and legacy browsers. To get all of Gmail's features, including inbox categories, images and quick actions, please use the latest version of Gmail (recommended).

Take me to latest Gmail

Hi, other than the default search engines, I tried adding some more to Firefox in the options. The method I did this was, say I need to add Yandex search engine, I went to yandex.com https://yandex.com and clicked the three dots and the address bar and selected "add search engine" but when i go to options>search, the engines i added are in the drop down list (1), but not in the grid table (2)where you can add a keyword or remove the engine.

Is there a way to fix this?

the situation: we publish an internal wiki website in our intranet. the delivering server provides a certificate issued by our own microsoft active directory pki (root-intermediate-servercert). firefox is configured by gpos in order to use windows cert store, where root and intermediate are installed. but nevertheless firefox drops an error message ssl_bad_cert_domain and i do not see why. in chrome or chromium based edge everything is fine. no ssl warnings. as you can see in the attached screenshot the cert includes various san fields for different host names, which includes two ip addresses (anonymized).

any advice what do to is mostly appreciated.

thanks a lot peter

Just recently (Jan. 21st), I tried to share my screen while in a Google Meet and received the message, "You must grant permission in order to screenshare." I don't receive this message when I try it in Google Chrome. I've been able to share my screen in Google Meet when using Firefox in the past, but don't remember the last time I did. So, not sure when this issue really started. I would like to continue to use Firefox for this function, so any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I have found a few pages about address rewriting; how do I disable them all ? - searching single word into google (type "keyw" in about:config to disable it) - hiding http when not using https - trying to add "www" and ".com" around a single word when the word did not resolve

I consider most of them as security issues for various reasons.

And when editting an URL, I want firefox to keep showing the full url as it was invoqued; not add https randomly, or removing http other days. And the more I disable some, the more new ones appear.

I cannot find any way to disable, hide, or remove the Recently Bookmarked list from the bookmark section. These make this window unusable other than the bookmarks that are listed there. I have no use for Recently Bookmarked items to be listed anywhere. I have attempted all of "solutions" that pop up about fixing this issue, but none actually work.

There is no "Hide Recently Bookmarked" when you right click anything on that menu or others involving bookmarks. Similarly, there is no setting regarding it when you search in about:config as is claimed most of the time. Adding a bunch of meaningless bookmarks & deleting them, also does not clear the list as it seems to remember all the bookmarks.

I've found people complaining about this as far back as 49, and as recently as 66 and 78.

I've been using new fonts to customize my firefox, but I found that the fonts I installed won't show up in the dropdown menu in preferences, I have to create a new profile to let the new ones do.

I don't want to change my profiles from time to time, so I turned to userContent.css, but I found it either cannot cover enough contents, or cover too much, causing some icons to break.

So the only way to change font for me is to find a way to let the newly installed fonts to show up properly in my current profile, but no matter I restart my browser or my computer they don't. The fonts I have must be read at the time I create a profile, and I guess the list is stored in either somewhere in my profile or under the firefox program folder.

I made every effort to search for it but failed, all I know now is it's not in any text file under profile folder, I wonder if anyone can help me with locating the list of fonts. My firefox version is 84.0.2 on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7.

Currently, I have configured my Privacy & Security settings in which all third-party cookies are blocked. This causes certain websites to break and become nonfunctional.

How do I configure my settings to which all third-party cookies are blocked by default, but for specific websites I choose they are not blocked?

I do not want to change my settings in which cookies are blocked only from websites I have not visited; because there are some websites I frequent that I still wish to block third-party cookies.

I've been struggling today with accessing two systems on my work laptop. As I'm an administrator on both sites, I've been purposely using "private mode" browser sessions in Firefox (my default and fav) but I was surprised to see that the private mode appears to be "save" some of the session data from those systems - at least temporarily until I close all of those windows entirely?

I log in to one of those corporate sites with a username + password, then attempt to login to the other one in a separate tab, but it immediately attempts to auto-login me in with the credentials from the first site (which doesn't work as both sites require a different username/password for security reasons). I tried several combinations: I used separate private browser windows (instead of tabs) and the same thing happens. It's like it shares data across the instances? I also tried the reverse - logging into the 2nd system first on a fresh instance, then login to the first, and the same thing happens with a similar "invalid login" error.

Maybe its something weird about the auth on our network, like SSO? ...

I have noticed similar though where I've had other, multiple private browser sessions open on my personal laptop and even though I've closed one of them, activity from the site I closed has continued to happen in the background because the other private windows remained open ...

I would like to use the "No Container" as my default container, but if information can be shared between "No Container" and other containers, then I'll have to recreate the Personal Container, and never use the "No Container" option.

Recently, I've been unable to view paid for video, for example on Netflix. I get the following error message:

The WidevineCdm Plugin has crashed. FATAL Clpp-Error [Category 6 - Code 6002]: {"browserError":""}

I'm using a macOS 10.95 and, says Firefox,:

"Note: The current version of Google Widevine is no longer compatible with older macOS versions such as OS X 10.9 and 10.10. Only macOS versions 10.11 and above are supported."

So my question, since it seems my mac is no longer compatible with Widevine, is whether there a way for me to watch video on Firefox? Perhaps with another plugin? Or no plugin? Perhaps this is an issue to take up with Widevine?

Thanks in advance.
