Hello all,

Lately I received a report from some colleagues that a certain feature is not working in Firefox that appears to be working on any other browser.

When drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook (Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise) to a drop-field in Firefox (88.0.1 - 64-bit) nothing happens.

When using Firefox we can drag/drop files from Windows Explorer, but not from Outlook.

The same fields do work flawlessly when drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook in Google Chrome, Microsoft EDGE, Opera and Safari. So Firefox is the only browser - on several OS's - that does not allow e-mails/attachments to be dropped from Microsoft Outlook. We have tested multiple users on different workstation and we have tested drop-fields from several web applications.

Surprisingly I cannot find any solution to this. The only similar cases I was able to find are from a couple of years ago but are about the other way around (so drag/dropping files FROM Firefox to another application).

At this moment I am advising my colleagues to use another browser. But we really want this to work properly with any browser of choice. Hope this community can help us out.

The update to Firefox 89.0 did not fix this problem.

Note: UAC is enabled on the workstations. Disabling does not affect anything. Tested attachments: .pdf, .docx, .html & .xlsx

I am running RHEL 7 and KDE4 with Firefox Nightly.

Firefox will not use KDE/Qt dialog boxes or system applications. For example: when showing the downloaded file list (Ctrl + Shift + y) and clicking the folder icon to show the file's location, firefox will freeze for several seconds before opening a window in Nautilus.

I have found discussions of this problem that span seemingly a decade without a simple step-by-step guide or an updated solution. Answers range from: editing =mimeinfo.cache= file for the =inode.directory= line, editing items in =defaults.list= file; setting the =GTK_USE_PORTAL=1= variable (somewhere) and then changing various =about:config= settings.

It's just confusing and exhausting tracking this down. Is it possible to get firefox to play nicely with KDE? Nothing that I have tried so far seems to have worked, but I'm honestly not sure where this setting would live, or magic bash incantation I need to run.

I know this seems minor, but having just switched back over to firefox to chrome, it seems very jarring seeing the GTK dialogs that do not play nicely with the rest of my desktop/workflow (i.e., I do not want to start a Gnome vs KDE flamewar, but rather: I'm used to dolphin and how it works and make heavy use of the embedded terminal within dolphin windows or drag&drop files into the Qt open dialog box which "drops" as a file path ... I have no idea what happens if I drag something into the GTK open dialog box)

In Firefox settings, Firefox new tab, and in these mozilla forums, my add-ons are disabled. Specifically Vimium, and I get this message when hovering over the Vimium icon: "Vimium is not running on this page.

Your browser does not run web extensions like Vimium on certain pages, usually for security reasons.

Unless your browser's developers change their policy, then unfortunately it is not possible to make Vimium (or any other web extension, for that matter) work on this page."

How can I enable this, and possibly all normally active add-ons in these pages?

I have been using Firefox for well over 10 years but for the last few months my firefox browser began running slowly; the audio was slow and I thought that something went wrong with my sound card on my desktop. I would restart the computer and it would work fine for several days then firefox would slow again. Then about 3 or 4 weeks ago firefox crashed and I was never able to get it to launch. The crash report appeared but firefox would not launch.

I went through the steps from support at mozilla and tried uninstalling and reinstalling and all the other procedures but no joy.

It seems that my audio problem is a firefox problem since other browsers have no problem. My windows 10 is up to date and so is firefox. I just don’t know where to go from here. I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Thank you in advance.

Have used FF for years. Best and fastest browser on my Mac. Now it suddenly started crashing on every start. I can't even navigate anything within the app. It is unresponsive from the start. Always have to force quit.

I deleted the app and system files (Library - App Support - FF folder). Restarted computer and did a fresh install. Same thing.

Mac Big Sur v11.4

FF v90.0

thanks so much Ken

Is it possible to remove / hide individual elements inside the Library popup's #placesList (i.e. the Tag item and/or the icons of any of the items)?

My attempt with the code below inside userchrome removed ALL of the side panel content - not ideal.

#placesList > treechildren:nth-child(2) {
  display: none !important;

}

Also, is it actually possible for the Browser Toolbox to work inside popups?

Issue only started immediately after upgrading to FF 90.0.

I'll be browsing normal pages, the same pages I've always used that have worked, and suddenly FF will go to a white screen (including all the tabs). If I wait a moment, FF seems to decide on a whim whether to go back to normal behavior or to crash completely. There doesn't seem to be a pattern of a particular website or time that FF has been active.

I have tried reinstalling FF, updating addons, clearing cache.

Suddenly in Verison 90 Mac (may ahve been a few earlier versions too) been a while since I needed to copy/paste across fields in work documents as have done for years and now can not - makes Firefox useless for work.

After several attempts to cop and past long text fields a message came up saying "For security" I now have to double paste into a little field that may (or may not) come up when I click on teh field to paste the text into - what cretin thought this was a good idea .. and blaming it on security.

Chrome and Safari manage to still be able to cope without this useless garbage - pity Firefox can't.

Hi, I'm using Firefox 90 browser on Ubuntu 21.04. Somehow the UI font for my profile changed from the default and I can't find any way to reset it (see bad_ui_font.png) My tabs, menus and preferences all got set to some fixed-width font, and I can find anywhere in the preferences or about:config, or in my profile folder where I can change it back. If I create a new profile, then the UI font is fine (see good_ui_font.png). But as soon as I login to my firefox account and sync, then the new profile gets the bad UI font. I don't want to have to recreate my profile from scratch and lose all my settings just to correct the UI font. But this is very annoying. How can I restore the default UI font?

Thanks.

I tried to copying and pasting the email code in and it says wrong code try again. I have tried multiple times and it won't work. Then I tried forget password and tried to use a recovery code to reset my account in an attempt to restart it like a computer but that does not work. I cannot add 2AF to my account. Any help appreciated. It also seems to be recognizing a email that I no longer use. I have had this problem in the past but ignored.

Greetings...

I have been managing cookies through the use of the Manage Exceptions (block/allow for session/allow) feature in the Cookies and Site Data section, with Standard Enhanced Tracking Protection enabled.

If I were to change to Strict Enhanced Tracking Protection, would this change cause any conflict with my existing cookie exception settings? Would the Strict Enhanced Tracking Protection override my existing cookie exception settings? Or, would my existing cookie exception settings override the benefits of the Strict Enhanced Tracking Protection? Would I have to make any changes to my existing cookie exception settings if I wanted to use Strict Enhanced Tracking Protection?

Please advise. Thank you for your help!
