Hello,

Like I suppose any user of older systems (Macs...) that cannot be updated to a newer OS version and thus locked-in to an older Firefox browser I received an email today:

"Don’t stop the sync. Upgrade your Firefox before March 31st."

Why, why, why??

Why would Mozilla take away this last little bit of usefulness after already having abandoned all updates to the browser itself? Why actively "fix" something that ain't broke in a why that does actually break it?

And don't give me the sacrosanctuous security argument please ;) - I never synced sensitive information, not even my browsing history. If security *is* the reason it should be hardly more difficult to disable/disallow just the syncing of that information at the server end. We're clearly speaking at a change on that end anyway, otherwise everyone NOT running the very latest version would be urged to update, not just users of v78 and older.

Anyway, I'm sadly aware of the fact this little rant or even a concerted action isn't likely to change anything, so what options are there? Any suggestions for browser extensions that provide syncing of bookmarks and maybe open tabs or even browser preferences?

Thanks!

PS: I'm posting this from another older system currently still running a Ubuntu 14.04 version that is in fact hardly younger than my Mac's OS but still enjoys Firefox updates...

Thanks guys for screwing up my day with your latest update. I used to be able to download a .pdf and opening it in my ,pdf reader. I NEED to do this for tax reconciliation purposes. Now your crappy program has decided to open .pdfs in itself and I cant get a downloaded copy any more. What the hell was the programmer thinking? Yes I have gone to Applications and checked that it is set to my .pdf reader. Please fix this before I get fined by the tax office.

Since yesterday I can't access multiple websites like Spotify, Reddit, Google Drive etc on my desktop computer anymore. I don't know why and I didn't change anything over night. It also works fine in Microsoft Edge.

Reddit shows the "whoa there, pardner" error, spotify shows 403 error, Google Drive says my browser (Firefox 120.0) isn't supported and others are simply unavailable. At the same time Google looks off and Twitch is just a huge loading screen.

I cleared all the data (cookies/cache), but that didn't help.

I had this reddit error a few weeks ago already, but it disappeared on its own. However it was only reddit that was affected.

I have been using Simple Tab Groups (STG) for a long time now. I am curious if putting tabs into groups saves any resources, i.e. is only the open group using resources (CUP/RAM), or is STG purely organizational in that all the tabs still use the same amount of resources as if they weren't grouped? If it is the latter, do you know of an add-on that would save resources? Thanks

what triggers the captive portal login... ? It's a great feature on a phone!

I am experiencing it on Linux 6.1.0-13-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Debian 6.1.55-1 (2023-09-29) x86_64 GNU/Linux, Firefox 115.1 (esr?) to 120.0.

Firefox is talking out through a Comcast-supplied router to the outside world and the captive portal attempt is being sent to one of localhost's aliases.

The firewall was setup as ufw disable; ufw reset; ufw default deny incoming; ufw default allow outgoing; ufw enable. The local apache is reporting attempts to access localhost's /canonical.html every 3 seconds. 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:10:55 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:10:58 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:11:01 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:11:04 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:11:07 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:11:10 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0" sc:80 127.0.0.1 - - [22/Nov/2023:06:11:13 -0800] "GET /canonical.html HTTP/1.1" 301 582 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0"

I want to be able to start a live stream in Mighty Networks - all seems to work, except the go live button is blanked out. I tried all the usual up to reinstalling firefox and generating a new userprofile in windows 11 and getting a brand new firefox version running in the new userprofile. With other browsers like chrome it just works fine.

On my latptop running windows 10 firefox does not encouter this problem.

Any suggestions are very welcome, I can of course switch browsers but would prefer to see this issue resolved.

Curious to hear if any other users encounter the same issue,

Thanks for any help provided,

When I do a Google search, the icons/buttons for Web, Images, Shopping, etc. do not display correctly. I can only see the tops of the buttons. I tried disabling my plugins but that didn't help. I launched FF in troubleshooting mode and that still did not resolve it. So far, I've only found two ways to fix it. I can either view it in a private window or I can use the User Agent Switcher plugin to force it to Chrome. This is something that just recently started, probably beginning with v119 or even 119.01.

I am on Firefox Developer Edition 120.0b9 (64-bit macOS). Using sites like whatismyip and whatismyipaddress, I am seeing that I have a VPN or Proxy enabled. When I use Chrome, I don't see this. I went through all the settings and turned off anything that could even remotely be related, and still get the same results. Does Firefox have a built in VPN that I am unaware of? Is there a way to turn it off?

1. When I set "NEVER REMEMBER HISTORY" Firefox create an initial INVALID INITIAL http request.


GET /lipsum.html undefined <--------------------- HERE Host: myhost.com User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0 Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/avif,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate, br DNT: 1 Sec-GPC: 1 Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1 Connection: keep-alive Sec-Fetch-Dest: document Sec-Fetch-Mode: navigate Sec-Fetch-Site: none Sec-Fetch-User: ?1 Pragma: no-cache Cache-Control: no-cache

3. This causes a NS_ERROR_NET_TIMEOUT_EXTERNAL

4. Firefox then immediately issues a 2nd HTTP Request, this time correctly.

GET /lipsum.html HTTP/1.1 <---------------------------- Host: myhost.com User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0 Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/avif,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate DNT: 1 Sec-GPC: 1 Connection: keep-alive Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1 Pragma: no-cache Cache-Control: no-cache

I have a video of the behavior and a simple HTML file to test with. I can't upload either.
