https://github.com/nidi3/graphviz%2djava#user%2dcontent%2dhow%2dit%2dworks

How can I get Firefox to recognize encoded URLs?

The un-encoded URL works, but is fragile because of the hyphen-minus characters. The source text is on a Powerpoint slide, and preservation of the hyphen-minus depends on the PDF writer, any PDF tools used (croppers, n-uppers, rotaters, page manipulators/extractors/combiners, etc.), and the various systems on which the document is processed.

I downloaded the DownThemAll Firefox extension, and I see it in my settings under Extensions, however, when I right click on a web page, there is nothing in the list to allow me to use the extension. I did not receive any instructions on how to use the extension either like I receive when I update my Firefox Browser. I have checked everywhere in my browser for something that allows me to use the Extension, but there is nothing. Attached is a snippet that shows my right click in an area on a webpage that I would like to download.

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Hi,

I'm looking to sync my Firefox account between my desktop and a laptop. I went to the menu, clicked on the sign in button next to "sync and save data", and landed on the account sign in page. However, after I entered my email address for my account, the page hasn't moved on to ask for my password. The blue bar underneath it is currently doing the circling thing and I don't understand why. I can sign into Firefox on its own, but not to sync.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

We run the same domain user on multiple machines. It uses the same app data which causes fire-fox to use the same profile in the app data. Is there a way to get around the profile locking when it use by one of the machines? Chrome and other browsers do not have this issue.

Firefox on my iphone got into Chase OK. Surprising that a major site like Chase would be a problem with desktop firefox.

I have two Outlook accounts registered & one set as default. But, when I tried to setup my default in settings, Apps, default apps, email it only offers me Outlook.com (instead of my default choice) so automatically always selects the mail account I do not want! It used to work OK for years until I had a recent SSD failure & hence I need to reset it correctly. Your help page doesn't seem to tell me how to select the specific mail account I want (i.e. when you have more than one)? Please therefore tell me how to do that & also change your help notes accordingly.

My Firefox is v102, 64-bit, on W10 Enterprise. ESR channel. It keeps telling me I need to update.

Under HELP, it fails to download whatever it is trying to update. Even though I got v102, I tried the online installer (mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new). Thinking about it now, I did not try an offline installer.

I been searching online and tried this policies.json file (github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md#backgroundappupdate) with these entries:

{

 "policies": {
   "AppAutoUpdate": false
 }

} {

 "policies": {
   "BackgroundAppUpdate": false
 }

}

But still not help.

Is there anything else I can try? There seems to be no simple option to click to not check for updates temporarily.

Thank you.

When I click the reload button or press CRTL+R, I expect firefox to return to the top of the current page and reload the current page.

But lately (a few months now) firefox does not return to the top of the page, it stays at the position that I'm currently viewing and reloads.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode by holding the shift key, and it still shows the same problem. I even tested this on another computer (not mine) with the same result.

If this is a new feature of firefox, can I turn it off?

Lately, when I try to create a desktop shortcut from the Github website, it instead create a folder, with the correct title of the page, and what looks like a link inside, with an abbreviated website name, but is not a shortcut at all.

Example: Try dragging the address bar padlock from this page to your desktop

Welcome to Refined GitHub!

Same thing happens when I try to drag its bookmark to the desktop.

Creating the shortcut from Chrome works properly, so I assume this is a Firefox problem.

I like the idea of putting Facebook related pages in a container. Why Firefox does not automatically open a new tab/window for this container so that only Facebook would loose track of my browsing history?

How I can adjust Firefox to always open containers in a new tab/window and leave the original page intact on its tab?

I can — If I would always remeber — open the Facebook related container on a new tab. Why this could not happen autiomatically, or happen based on my container settings? it seems all I can adjust is the colour of the bar above the tab.

I other words: What is the advantage of me too loosing connection to my browsing history?

Yes, there is a workaround: I can open the container in a new tab if i recall to do so — and yes — I can open "history" and find the page leading to "facebook" from there, but would it not be so much easier, if I could have it done automatically?

URL Drag-and-Drop into Windows File Explorer shortcut sometimes fails

Hello, This issue may be related with "[meta] Implement URL parser per URL Standard", opened 9 years ago(!), but updated only 1 month ago (bugzilla). If somehow applicable, just let me know that my issue is already being taken care. Thank you.

D&D a Firefox URL into Windows File Explorer, may fail. Just try it for yourself (Firefox for Windows, version 102):

Will fail (notice the additional folder created): D&D on this URL will fail

Will fail and may even create an invincible 0 byte file (Windows is unable to delete it...): D&D this URL will also fail

Won't fail: D&D this URL will *not* fail


I only noticed this wrong behavior in version 102.0 (Firefox 64-bit for Windows) but, as I use this D&D functionality quite often, I don't believe this problem to have occurred much before 101.x. Only tested it in Windows though (Windows 10 Pro - 21H2 19044.1766, 64-bit). This thus seems to be a BUG introduced in version 101.x or 102.0

By trial & error, I think I eventually found out what is leading the D&D to eventually fail: it's related with the web page title (i.e., the Firefox tab title). This behavior has nothing to do with the URL value itself.

When D&D an URL into File Explorer, the URL shortcut name is supposed to be created with the webpage title. However, Windows filenames have some unsupported characters: \ / : * ? ” <> |

So, I guess Firefox should first parse this title and remove all these unsupported characters (or replace them with, e.g., “-“), before assigning the title to the shortcut name (a .URL file). Which, as I understand it, is not happening anymore. I have not found any issue with the URL value itself.

In fact, the D&D result may vary, depending on the characters the webpage name includes.

If it contains a “/”, it will create one (or more) Windows folders before creating the URL shortcut. E.g., if I D&D a webpage URL into “C:\my URL shortcuts folder”, with title “CAT5E Shielded 3/50μ Gold-Plated”, it will create a shortcut (with the correct link) in C:\my URL shortcuts folder\CAT5E Shielded 3\50μ Gold-Plated.URL Obviously, even though the URL content is right, this is not the expected behavior!

More troublesome can be a webpage title that contains a “:”, because it creates a 0-byte no extension file which sometimes (but not always) refuses to be deleted by Windows. E.g., if I D&D a webpage URL into “C:\my URL shortcuts folder”, with title “ShinobiHub – Article: How to Update”, it will create a zero-byte file in “C:\my URL shortcuts” folder with name “ShinobiHub – Article” (no extension). Trying to remove the file in File Explorer may display the error message: “Item not found. This is no longer located in <PATH>. Verify the item’s location and try again.”

[BTW, after some digging I find out how to remove the file: Just open a DOS window and type: del "\\?\C:\my URL shortcuts folder\ShinobiHub - Article " No need to restart or do anything else, just need to put \\?\ before the directory when using the del command. Also use the tab button to make sure the name is correct; sometimes a space is added at the end that can be easily missed.]

Strangely enough, a “Verified by: Cloudfare” (or something similar) is also display just below Firefox Url.

I’m not sure about the effect of other different unsupported file name characters. Anyway, this was tested in 2 different Windows computers, both with same faulty results. The same operation in Chrome works as expected.

Conclusion: This issue should be easy enough to find but I could not find any *recent* report on a similar issue. That makes me wonder… is this really a bug?... Please help. Thank you. Cecilio
