I recently installed new pc with fresh Firefox Developer Edition. Then I transfered the profile folder from old pc to the new pc. All bookmarks, addons, etc is there. Just the XULRunner popup appears only on the new pc. I uninstalled firefox on the new pc again and reinstalled it with profile cleaning. After profile cleaning firefox got faster and addons got removed. But the XULRunner popup keeps appearing. When I go to taskscheduler and trigger the "Firefox Developer Edition Background Update CA9422711AE1A81C" again, the XULRunner popup appears. Removing this taskscheduler and Firefox keeps readding it and the XULRunner popup are back. Any idea how I can get rid of the XULRunner popup?

I have tried disabling add-ons/ exensions, disabling auto-fill, downgrading security, reinstalling (even the ESR edition), deleting Firefox files from the library/application_support - but it doesn't simply work. Not sure if this is an OS issue.

Any ideas would really help. Getting the below info on the about:crashes each time:

Is there any way I can completely disable horizontal scrolling? I'm using a laptop with a trackpoint (lenovo x230, Windows 10) and it's not terribly accurate, which means scrolling whilst a youtube video is going often makes it track backwards or forwards, and another website I use uses a horizontal click to send me to the next page, which sucks. I would prefer to just be able to disable it entirely. Thanks!

I swear to god I used to have it disabled, just need to work out how again.

Hi,

I have for some time (over a year) been using a remote server as a SOCKS5 proxy for Firefox so I can bypass my local ISPs filtering.

The proxy connection is setup using an SSH tunnel like this:

ssh -D 8080 -q -C -N -f root@<remote server> That sets up port 8080 on my local machine to listen for connections which will be forwarded to ssh on the remote server acts as aSOCKS4/SOCKS5 proxy.

    -D [bind_address:]port
            Specifies a local “dynamic” application-level port forwarding.  This works by allocating a socket
            to listen to port on the local side, optionally bound to the specified bind_address.  Whenever a
            connection is made to this port, the connection is forwarded over the secure channel, and the
            application protocol is then used to determine where to connect to from the remote machine. 
            Currently the SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 protocols are supported, and ssh will act as a SOCKS
            server. 

Tried it today and it doesn't work any more. I've attached a picture of my Firefox Proxy settings and a picture of the Firefox version I am currently running. plus a picture of the error I get when I try to access the BBC website using Firefox via the proxy.

I've tried all combinations of "Proxy DNS when using SOCKS v5" and "Enable DNS over HTTPS" with no effect. I've also tried it from "Troubleshooting Mode" and the same thing happens.

I also tried accessing https://www.bbc.co.uk through the same proxy by using the command:

curl --silent --location --socks5 localhost:8080 https://www.bbc.co.uk

and it worked perfectly.

I'd be grateful if you could have a look at it and let me know what is wrong.

Thanks, Alan

It's just not playing well with Win11.

I want to see the tabs, even if they are squished or scrolled when I get a bunch of them.

The drop-down is not a bad addition but it should not replace the horizontal display!

Firefox is suggesting usernames on multiple websites that I access regularly. However, I have the saved logins feature turned off in Firefox.

When I access Settings > Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords - it shows all of these options turned off.

When I access Settings > Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords > Saved Logins... - it indicates No Logins Found / No Synced Logins found.

I do have Firefox Sync turned on to sync between devices, but since it indicates "No Synced Logins" it doesn't appear this is coming from another device. I have checked multiple devices and found they all show "No Synced Logins"

Only happening in Firefox. I am not getting these suggested logins in Edge or Chrome.

Happening across all my Windows 10 and 11 devices that have Firefox sync enabled. 2 x Windows 11 Pro 22H2 (build 22621.819) 1 x Windows 10 Pro 22H2 (build 19045.2364)

Firefox 108.0 on all Windows devices, but it started before updating to 108.

I have not yet tried resetting Firefox - hoping to use that as a last resort.

Any suggestions on where else to look or what I should try?

Just recently Firefox has started to negatively affect my network connection, seemingly only after video playback has happened. Every fix to six pings the time jumps up from the normal range (less than 100ms) to 2-3,000 ms and then returns to normal. This only happens with Firefox and seems to happen mostly when/after video playback has happened but can also happen without video playback. I have started FF without addons as well as in Safe Mode and it still occurs. As soon as I close FF the ping returns to normal and network stability resumes.

I run a Windows laptop, version 8.1. Two days ago the monthly system rollup occurred followed by Firefox browser updates. The user comment section of the Foxnews website disappeared completely. I can still login and out but nothing appears for any article comments. I see the comments are still there when I open a Chrome browser on my Android phone so I know Fox didn't discontinue user commenting. I have looked at add-ons, ad blockers, etc but no success reactivating this feature.

Anyone else having this problem? If so, is there a known cause/solution? Thanks

Hello,

since a few days I have a strange cursor, possibly related to the latest version. The problem only occurs in Firefox.

No matter where I click, in search histories, settings or on websites, the cursor that appears when you want to write something appears everywhere. So the flashing line, I just can't write anything.

How can I deactivate it? I have already asked in other forums, but no one has an answer.

I'm attaching a few screenshots below.
