HI!

My buddy highlighted an issue, then i re-checked myself and it is worrying to me.

To recreate (windows):

Get any (non-webistaller [not nececarry, to do it this way, but simpler to check]) firefox version (buddy got a fresh portable, i used my kinda privacy fortified one). Disconnect from the internet (plug the cable for fastest result). Make your version usable (install it) Start firefox, and open the Resource Monitor, with the network tab open expand the Network Activity portion (short alphabeticly, by name, check for F for firefox). Plug the cable in.

You soon will see FF will start looking for things, then an adress with a googleusercontet.com will pop up. Does not matter what is the Homepage's default browser, does no matters even if the Homepage is set to blank, this happens.

My best bet would be google safe browsing, but still, without any activity it is already connecting to that?

I know about the Google-FF/Mozilla relation, but this really made me think about why i still like firefox.

- I have followed the recommended steps shown in answers/replies to a similar question. However, none works at all.

  1. 1- cleared cache & cookies
  2. 2- tried safe mode and disabled/removed some add-ons manually as well
  3. 3- tried different themes and default theme
  • Please note that the same issue happens in Firefox on Android phone

I have been having this issue for 5 weeks already. as a temporary solution I am using the middle mouse click or right-click to open links in a new tab, then close the current tab

    • Please also note, that specific website works fine in other browsers (6 browsers tested)
      • the issue DOES NOT exist in Firefox on Linux

When I scan a barcode using Firefox, characters are added/rearranged. This causes errors for our company's customers and inaccurate data entry. Scanning the attached barcode produced the following results in Firefox:

I've recently updated to 92.0.1 and I've noticed that when I download a PDF attachment or file that firefox opens in a new tab rather than using the default adobe program. I've looked at settings and applications and changed to to "always ask" but I don t get any option to use adobe to open it or any other program. Also it seems to save the file in the downloads folder as a "firefox html document" and not a pdf file

When I try to open Facebook , I get the following message Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.facebook.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Hello, I would like to install an add-on from a file on my PC. The documentation says:

For advanced users: You can also install add-ons from a file. If you saved the installer file to your computer, (for example, an .xpi or .jar file) you can install the add-on using the gear icon in the upper-right area of the Add-on Manager Extensions panel. Select Install Add-on from file... from the menu, then find and select the file. My problem is that the gear icon does not appear anywhere on my panel.

There must be a new way to do it? Does anyone have a hint? My firefox version is 92.0.1 (64 bits).

Thanks!

Hi, Guys

I just got an email from Mozilla telling me about their new upcoming service to remove personal information from the web. In that email there was a link to someone's "free personal data removal workbook and credit freeze guide". I clicked on that link, and Norton blocked it as being a "dangerous webpage".

Norton also says "You attempted to access: https://gate.sc/?url=https%3A%2F%2Finteltech..."

And that, "This is a known dangerous webpage. It is highly recommended that you do NOT visit this page."

So, what's going on here? Please let me know.

I have no screen capture whatsoever - no menu comes up with a right click, no screen capture icon is present to add to the menu. I used to have an add on but that disappeared and is no longer available. From your latest tips letter I think I'm using a different browser entirely! If you can help I'd appreciate it- as I say I used to have it in my browser but no longer. Now I have to screen capture and edit it in an external program- I'm sure you'll agree this is horrific to have to do.

Okay, PopOS 21.04, Firefox 92.0 x64, my packages are up to date, my graphics card (Nvidia 1080) drivers are up to date (nvidia-driver-470 (proprietary)), kernal 5.13.0-7614-generic.

I run a variety of addons, but the only ones that should even be touching YouTube in any way would be Noscript, Ublock Origin, YouTube HD, HTTPS Everywhere. In the past with my current configuration none of these have given me any issues with playback.

I don't have any idea why, this is a problem I experienced a long time ago and now newly the other day for seemingly no good reason, videos on YouTube but also the web in general will not play until I open Firefox, close the browser, open it again, and then try and do whatever it was I'm trying to do. While not a fatal issue, this is one that is extremely annoying and I really don't feel like putting up with it.

Anyone have any advice or information?

Good day, everyone

Lost bookmarks during changing hdd for a friend of mine. Didn't backed up bookmarks and, unfortunately, he didn't sync his profile. At least we set another ssd, I wiped affected drive before installation. So, I've managed to recover data from Firefox profile, but when I tried to recover bookmarks and bookmarks backups, firefox stated, that that it's unsupported file. From both places.sqlite and .jsonlz4 backups. I've dived deeper and here's what I tried reading similar problems: -Checked via SQLite Manager firefox extenshion -Installed SeaMonkey browser -Tried to restore hdd using different software: Recuva and recoverit (this managed to restore folders structure) -Other weird solutions which didn't help as well

If some of you have plenty of time to check it and convert to HTML- here're files i've worked with. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ukBrhubcLCK2_0B5lwsHmVkyQRsJhmQt?usp=sharing

P.s. last solution I thought about: restore the whole disk with operating system and profile, but I doubt that it'll work. Thank you in advance!
