The icon for private browsing has recently re-appeared on my taskbar despite having browser.privateWindowSeparation.enabled set to false in about:config.

I've had this setting configured ever since the update which completely changed the appearance/behavior or private browsing and it has worked correctly up until today (14/06/24).

Is there a new setting that I have to adjust in order to "merge" the windows together as I'm not a fan of having the private browsing icon on my taskbar.

Bonjour, Hello,

I contact you because, even without an adblocker, Youtube is very slow with Firefox navigator. I don't understand why and I don't have this problem with Google Chrome ? Fews years earlier, I never had this problem with slow Youtube when using Firefox Navigator. I don't know if the problem comes from Youtube or Mozilla and I contacted both of them.

Thank you.

Bonjour,

Je vous contacte car, même sans bloqueur de publicité, Youtube est très lent avec le navigateur Firefox. Je ne comprends pas pourquoi et je n'ai pas ce problème avec Google Chrome ? Quelques années plus tôt, je n'avais jamais eu ce problème de lenteur avec Youtube lorsque j'utilisais Firefox Navigator. Je ne sais pas si le problème vient de Youtube ou de Mozilla et je les ai contactés tous les deux.

Recently my home page is blank. Each new tab opens as blank, bookmark icons are missing. I used to have a search engine when i opened Mozilla but now it's totally blank. I need to click on the bookmarks icon to open the list of bookmarks saved instead of seeing them on the toolbar. I didn't change anything and now it's all gone. I have uploaded a screenshot of my screen when I open Mozilla.

Hello, I'm looking to stopping **ALL** website Pop Up Notifications--NOT just selected ones. I've already gone to Privacy & Security-->Notificatications. This is feature is totally pointless. This feature assumes you repeadily go to the same singular site that causes pop ups --not random site you visit. I did check off the button at the bottom "Block new requests asking to allow notifications." My issue is NOT, NOT seeking to block "permissions" (I have never seen or been asked by Firefox to 'allow permission for website notifications')--I'm seeking to stop ALL website pop ups notifications that intrusively just appear at the lower right corner. I don't understand why there isn't a single button to stop these intrusive and annoying pop up pushes??? It's a no brainer. I hope you can help with a solution. Thank you in advanced.

When I access a location-aware website, I'm asked if I'll allow it to use my location. My problem is that the pop-up window won't allow me to do anything. I can't block, allow, close the window — nothing. Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere?

Hi there, Zoom meetings used to open via the Firefox browser (e.g., you get a zoom invite via email, click on the link, it opens a page in firefox that says "Launch Meeting." But now it doesn't work. Nothing happens. Why? At one point Firefox put up a message that asked me to choose something and I did, and after that, it never worked again.

I can get into my zoom meetings using their meeting number and password through the zoom app, but it's more convenient to just click on their link in emails and open it within the browser.

Help please. Thanks in advance. I am using MacOS HighSierra 10.13.6, i cannot go any higher on this older mac. Firefox version is 115.7.0 esr

By the way, this version of Firefox allows me to use the internet without messages from websites telling me my browser needs upgrading. For ex., google chrome browser will not update anymore on HighSierra and my banking website and others do not perform properly with Chrome. But they are ok with Firefox. So thanks for this.

Kathy



/edit: moved thread from Firefox for iOS (for iPhone/iPad) to Firefox section as you have macOS.

Even though I have browser.privateWindowSeparation.enabled set on "false", private windows appear separate regardless and it is bothering me. I restarted my browser, logged out and then back in, toggled the setting on and off again, but the damn thing stays in this uncomfortable spot that would be awkward to explain as opposed to simply having it blend in with the other windows innocuously. How do I fix this?

When I click on certain name on my friends list to do a video call when I click the camera on the message page, it says: Can not do video calls from this browser. So do some do not. I disabled all addons and still it says the same error. Is it because of Facebook encryptions? I also could before. So what now?

https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=40386418 Dunno if entirely accurate but regarding the Firefox error: “Twitter switched their top level domain to X, but didn't change any of their other domains, so they're still pulling assets from Twimg. Which makes Firefox (correctly) block the page if you have Tracking Protect enabled because it sees X trying to involve 3rd parties.“ Slow clap.
