I normally use Firefox desktop on my Linux computer.

Last week, I started using it on a public computer running Windows. I installed Firefox Portable and then logged/synced into my Firefox account on this Win computer. I noticed that in the Firefox Portable Windows “about:preferences” page, it says “Your browser is being managed by your organization”, which links to about:policies. In that “about:policies” page, it shows this https://i.imgur.com/JmD8nXg.png Policy Name: DisableAppUpdate Policy Value: true. Now I’m back on my Linux desktop computer and it also has this “managed by your organization” message in “about:preferences” and the same “about:policies” stuff. In other words, it appears that this policy was copied from the Windows public computer to my personal Linux computer. I don’t want that.

How can I undo this? And how can I block this sort of policy syncing?

I need to constantly jump between google search and wikipedia and i hate using the mouse. Normaly when you click the url bar you can type "@wikipedia" or "@google" to change the search engine to wiki, while typing anything else will prompt a google search. BUT when you use the shortcut "ctrl + e" or "ctrl + k" a box appears in front of the url bar with "Google", just like it would whe you typed "@google". This actually blocks "@wikipedia" from being registered making the whole feature almost useless and forcing me to invent workarounds to things that should be VERY simple in a browser. Any ideas how to fix this?

Hi,

I often search with the adress bar without thinking, and when searching 'maps' I accidentally hit 'yes' on the little drop down that says 'did you mean...' with the url. Now every time I try to search 'maps' in the address bar unless I specifically press the down key or use @g (or @ddg etc) I am taken to a url I have no use for. How do I disable this default? I spent ages trawling through settings to try to find where to turn this off.

Thank you so much!

I now have trouble logging into jungledisk.com after most recent "improvement" to Firefox. Never ran into this annoyment until new FF rolled out. My current work around, go to Edge. No problems getting to jungledisk there.

I get the following when I try,

"Cookies required to use Firefox

Below is the dialog box to log on asking for user name and password finally "Sign In". This "Sign In" is greyed out. Can log on the jungledisk not no way, not no how.

OK, this is a little funny. It used to be, if I wanted to open a website, I just clicked on the URL, and Firefox would open with it. Now (and I'm using 95.0.2 on iMac Big Sur), when I click on the the URL NOTHING HAPPENS if a Firefox window isn't already open. That is, you have to have a Firefox window already open in order for the website to appear. For example, in the Bookmark library, if a Firefox window isn't already open, clicking on a website there won't open it. You need to right click it and select OPEN. Now, Firefox is selected already as the default browser for the system.

How do I fix this? I mean, how do I get it back the way it used to be?

Hi Mozilla Community,

As of a couple of days ago, I've had trouble with my Firefox Extensions. The most apparent one being ads appearing on the sites I browse (I have the Adblock extension installed and active). The extension that reveals the "dislike" ratio on Youtube only works if I disable and then enable the extension, for each video I watch. My entire extensions toolbar seems faulty as well.

I've attached images to illustrate: - Rakuten just appears as a blank box upon clicking it - Video downloader extensions just appear as a white line (doesn't open at all) - Bitwarden (password manager) says "not available in private mode", even though I'm not using a private window

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Matt

For an unknown reason, Firefox Browser doesn't render portions of text on some pages, leaving invisible areas. I'm using the latest version (95.0.2) on Windows 10, but this was a problem in other recent versions. It only happens on some systems. No other browser I've tried has the same problem, so the issue is definitely Firefox-specific.

One example of a problematic page is arxiv.org, another one is Caltech News; see the attached screenshots for how Firefox renders these pages on my system.

Here's what I found out.

  1. The issue goes away if I disable the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" font setting.
  2. The issue remains even if I disable/uninstall all add-ons.
  3. Refresh-install doesn't resolve the issue.
  4. After uninstalling and installing Firefox cleanly again, with old settings auto-imported (bookmarks, history, logins ...) and no add-ons present, the issue is not present at first. However, if I enable "Open previous windows and tabs" option to restore my session on startup, the issue reappears after I close and re-open Firefox a couple of times, and doesn't go away after that. It doesn't matter whether the problematic pages are included in the restored session or not; they will simply not show all text as expected if I visit them.
  5. Deleting the entire cache, cookies, site data and site settings doesn't help.
  6. Opening Firefox in Troubleshoot mode make the problem disappear, but it returns immediately when I leave the Troubleshoot mode.

Any ideas how to fix this?

I downloaded several files and I can see them when I click on the little arrow, but when I look for them in my computer downloaded file , they aren't there. I go back up to the little arrow and it shows the file was downloaded, but it's not in my computer . So when I went back up to the little arrow and right clicked on it to open --it worked, the file opened, but it never showed up on my computer. The next day I tried to find the file in my computer but no success. I went to Firefox drop down and under downloads the file showed up, but I couldn't do anything with it. So now I can't find it on my computer and it doesn't work when I use it from Firefox's drop down selection. I have downloaded several other files with no problem.

Hello,

I have the site espn.com bookmarked and for the last month or so it has been opening it's various foreign sites instead of the united states version when I click on the bookmark tab. It will switch to the UK and Mexico sites randomly when I click on the tab. The address is saved as the US version (espn.com) when this happens so I can't figure out why it's doing it. It doesn't matter if I use a vpn that says I'm in the US or just my regular internet provider in the US, the site keeps changing what country it chooses to open with. I noticed that every time I click the tab it will cycle between the various different sites for each country even though as I said before, the bookmark is set for espn.com. It makes no sense as none of my other bookmarks do this and it doesn't do it when I use Safari's browser. Is there anything on my end I can do to get this to stop or is it coming from espn.com's end? Thank you for your time and help. :)
