Hello,

I am having problems with some sites and the error seems to indicate that it is related to cookies.

In Google Drive, when I am trying to download any file, it is getting stuck in some kind of loop and at the end, it is showing this:

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to drive.google.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Apart from this, when I am trying to log into my Riot account in Valorant's website, it is ending up showing this:

Expected redirect cookie to exist

___

I have tried following:

  • Using Standard mode for tracking protection
  • Disabling tracking protection for these sites
  • Deleting Cookies & Cache
  • Reinstalling Firefox :(

It didn't help. Also, it started after I reinstalled Windows 11. I have yet to setup it, so I have not made any changes.

Also, everything is working fine in other browsers.

Lockwise on My iPhone 13 forgot my login and asked for a password for some reason. As I have turned on 2-step verification it asked for the code from Google Authenticator. However this code was not accepted and I had to use one of my recovery codes. Now I am logged in and would love to disable the 2-step verification, as it does not work, but there is no such option in the app.

When I copy paste stuff, and who knows when, I see a bunch of word suggestions at the top of the right click context menu, with an option to enter them into a dictionary, whatever and wherever that is. I see nothing at all in the settings corresponding to this, and just want to completely disable that BS: It's just garbage in the way of me doing my tasks. How do I disable this, and/or the entire spell checker and dictionary, etc. if necessary? I know how to spell. Don't need it. Thanks.

I'm trying to move to Firefox from Microsoft Edge on Linux. When I go to import data from another browser Edge is not an option. I have a CSV file that I exported from Edge. How can I import this CSV file? I found something on reddit that said to change security.allow_eval_in_parent_process to true, but that no longer works. How can I get my passwords imported without having to install another browser and import to that and then import to firefox?

I've tried following both methods for dissabling the mute button on tabs, it's a slight annoyance, since it's easy to accidentally mute a tab when it's pinned.

Specifically, the first method I've tried changing the setting in about:config called "browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon" from true to false, which was from 7 years ago it seems, which had no effect.

The second method was by making a new rule in a "userChrome.css" file in a new folder called "chrome" with that exact naming, case sensitive. The code in that file is as follows:

/* Hide the mute/unmute button */
.tab-icon-overlay:not([pinned], [sharing], [crashed]):is([soundplaying], [muted]) {
    display: none !important;
}
/* Keep site icon visible on hover */
.tabbrowser-tab:hover .tab-icon-stack:not([pinned], [sharing], [crashed]):is([soundplaying], [muted]) > :not(.tab-icon-overlay), 
     /* for site icon with Compact density */
:root[uidensity="compact"] .tab-icon-stack:not([pinned], [sharing], [crashed]):is([soundplaying], [muted]) > :not(.tab-icon-overlay) {
    opacity: 1 !important; /* overrides full transparency with full opacity */
}

If there's an updated version of the code that's meant to have that effect in modern firefox, then please let me know, or if there's some other new way of removing the mute button on tabs. Thanks.

I just hooked up a new Windows 11 computer and installed Firefox, which has been my default browser for many years. I was irritated to discover after I synced with another computer that almost all the icons for my add-ons have disappeared with no apparent way to get them back. I NEED some of those icons and it makes absolutely no sense to have them gone. Before anyone suggests it I have checked where you customize the toolbar and none of them are there. I refreshed Firefox just in case it helped and of course it didn't. Checking online only results in finding other people with the same problem with no helpful answer. It's almost like Firefox is begging people to leave and go to another browser, which I probably would since I'm so irritated at this issue, but I'm not happy with any other browser. Firefox is the only one I've remotely been happy with, but the way it is right now I'll be pretty much unable to use Firefox on my new computer. At least I still have my icons on my Windows 10 laptop until I'm forced to upgrade to 11 but my new desktop just might end up Firefoxless unless I get a helpful answer.

I have contacted the Bank, and they are supposed to come back to me. Computer has been restarted and debugged and I have reset the router. The certificate is from COMODA RSA! VALID 13.01.23 - 02.02.24.

It has been suggested when I looked on one Site that I nofify yourselves of this matter.

Hi, I would like to join the chorus and say that the unified extensions button really needs to be fixed somehow. I can't stand it -- it slows down my workflow and seems like "change for change's sake".

But if you guys are serious that it can't be removed for some reason, then at least PLEASE make the unified extensions thing something that can be expanded horizontally along the toolbar (instead of just being a dropdown list) with preferred / most used extension icons visible in it, so that instead of

>clicking the unified extensions thing >scrolling down to find my extension >right clicking on the extension >choosing the option I want

It will just be

>click on the extension icon in the special unified extension section of the toolbar >the options for the extension pop up and I can choose one JUST LIKE THE OLD WAY THAT WAS EFFICIENT

I wouldn't even be opposed to an entire Extensions Toolbar with super security or whatever built into it. As long as the icons are still conveniently located and accessible!

I have a bunch of extensions that I don't need to interact with regularly, like my adblocker, https everywhere, or the thing to make webpages appear in dark mode. But every time I click the unified extensions thing they're right there at the top of the list. My screenshot extension however (for example), which I use constantly, is somewhere hidden near the bottom of the list, so I'm constantly scrolling down awkwardly looking for it. It used to be one button click to take a screenshot, now it's like five or six clicks and takes around 20+ seconds every time. IT'S VERY BAD USABILITY DESIGN. It might "feel" cleaner or more organized to put everything in a list, but it's not as functional for the end user (in my opinion).

Please reconsider your design of this thing and investigate the possibility of keeping certain extensions visible on the toolbar somehow to remain easily accessible to the user. Hopefully I've been able to explain my concerns to you. Anyway, I still love Firefox on the desktop, but if you guys can fix this that would be great.

Hello,

Recently I rebuilt my Widows 11 laptop, which meant that I needed to install Firefox again. I did this and signed into to sync all my add-ons again. The add-ons installed without issue, however the icons for them are not displayed on the tool bar. I can access them using the jigsaw icon, but this is is less inconvenient that accessing the add-on directly.

I then reset Firefox in case it was a glitch and signed in again to allow the sync to reinstall the add-ons. This time only the Privacy Badger icon made it onto the toolbar. Again I can access the add-ons using the jigsaw icon.

I have tried to add the add-ons to the Customise Toolbar setting, but they do not show up in the list of things that can be added.

Firefox version: 112.0.1 (64 bit)

I have attached images to show what is happening. Is there anyway I can force the add-on icons onto the toolbar to make them more accessible?

Thank you

My browser this afternoon updated to 112.0.1. Prior to the upgrade I was watching 9now.com.au. Post the upgrade the 9now pages will no longer show the controls or login boxes.

login.nine.com.au now shows a complete white page.

Devtools indicates there are almost no network queries being issued in comparison to edge.

To test I spun up a VM that had firefox 111.0 installed with the above web site working. I let firefox upgrade to 112.0.1 and it stopped functioning again. I downgraded to 111.0 again and everything works again. Seems 112.0.1 is breaking it.
