When I click on a link and say to open the link in a new tab, there's an issue.

The "Copy" in the context menu for that new tab is grayed out, i.e., cannot be selected.

So I have to go back to the origin page, and then re-select the new, just opened tab.

After I do that, the "Copy" is no longer grayed out.

Is this a bug?

If so, how do I report it?

Many thanks.

I use Firefox with a VPN. I also use the Chameleon extension to alter my fingerprint. When I log into Messenger.com it asks if this is me and gives my actual, physical location. I've checked in settings under location and it doesn't show any sites requesting my location. I have it open in one of the tabs where it's showing my location. I have block all location requests checked. How can I get Firefox to not show my physical location?

Also on this page, it gives I'm using Firefox and the OS I'm using. Both are supposed to be changed for fingerprinting protection.

This looks like it could be a big security loophole. Any help is appreciated.

I am using Firefox 127 on Ubuntu.

When I press the Control key, I often lose focus in the window I am currently viewing. This is annoying as it prevents me from copy-pasting for example.

Sometimes the focus is back when I release Control, sometimes it is lost and I have to click again on the text field. It does not happen on all websites, for example support.mozilla.org works well, but it happens on duckduckgo or overleaf.

It does not seem to be the same as existing issues such as [the "show mouse when press Ctrl" of Ubuntu] (it is disabled) or an addon (the problem still happens in safe mode).

In case it is useful, when I press Control the tab bar background goes slightly darker, see attached images.

Thanks for your help :) Nicolas

Similar to this problem: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1360287 .

I am using Debian 12, i3wm, and Firefox 127.0.1

After adding a new credit card to Firefox, I can go to any website that needs credit card info and it will auto fill successfully. When I reboot my computer and then try to auto fill credit card info, Firefox prompts me for the password to the "Default" keyring, but it does not autofill (something in the input box flashes quickly then it goes blank again). Firefox will not autofill again until I add a new credit card.

I had no success with Firefox in Troubleshooting mode either.

Hi,

I need to take part in a course that is delivered via moodle and that employs SCORM videos.

After some modules I am experiencing an issue where firefox does not load them anymore. When you try to load a module a spinner appears and stays there indefintely.

Initially, trying to reload the module could eventually unblock it. Now this is not possible anymore. Disabling the enhanced protection does not change the situation.

The modules work just fine with chromium.

Having firefox being a stopper for online learning resources is a real issue. Any help will be appreciated.

FF keeps replacing

http://mysite.domain.net:3344 with httpS://mysite.domain.net:3344

whatever I try to fix this behavior. Thing is that I own this server and there ever was't any SSL implemented. I mean this - never.

Other browsers (Chromium, Chrome, Opera) don't take such a forcing action, website opens like a charm. Why FF thinks it knows better which URL I really want to open?

I already googled _a lot_ in order to find solution, but no one worked.

Setup: Debian 11 Mate no proxy and no separate "internet security" stuff on laptop (other browsers with default settings confirm that) FF 102.11.0 ESR 64 no addons (all switched off)

already tried: browser.urlbar.autoFill false browser.cache.check_doc_frequency 1 network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist false browser.fixup.fallback-to-https false dom.security.https_first false

What else I could do to stop this madness? Thank you in advance for any help

I see where other people have posed this question but the procedure offered is not available to me.

I am using Firefox (Flatpak) version 121.0 on an Ubuntu 22.04 laptop.

On installing a new extension I should either see the extension's icon on my toolbar or else have a clear means of adding it. I have neither.

Clicking on the jigsaw icon in the toolbar, I get migrated to the about:addons page. On clicking the Extensions tab, I get the screen listing all installed extensions. Each extension has a ... icon beside it. But when I click on this, there is no "Pin To Toolbar" option.

What is wrong here ?

Using Firefox version 102:

Open console tools and navigate to Network tab Right click on a POST request "Edit and Resend" is no longer an option? There is still the resend option Clicking resend allows you to edit the request, but unfortunately the "Content-Length" attribute is not automatically updated like it was with edit and resend, so all requests fail after being edited. This is because the Content-Length header indicates the size of the message body, in bytes, sent to the recipient. When you add or removes bytes in a JSON request for example, it doesn't get updated. The attribute can also not be manually set. How can I use version 102 to edit and resend requests the same way I used to?

Thank you.

Hello, This issue might or might not be related to [other issue] I have since I updated Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04 and therefore updated my Firefox to 104. I can't login anymore on Letterboxd since the update. It's not a problem of username or password. When I click "Sign in", nothing happens except a page refresh, but I'm still not logged in. Other strange behaviour on that site since the update: most of the images don't appear. For example on this page : https://letterboxd.com/films/# all the movie covers are just blank.

The website does work properly when using Firefox in private mode though (both login and images work fine), so this makes me think it's related to my other issue mentioned above.

OS: Ubuntu 22.04 Firefox 104.0.2

EDIT after posting this question: I just found out that I can't login on Google either. I enter my username, password, then it asks me to validate on another apparel that it's really me, which I do, and nothing happens so I can't login. It works normally in private mode.

Hi everybody this will be a long question, and I would be really grateful for any kind of help anyone could give me, this is my case:

I use `firefox-sync` to manage all my logins information and firefox-sync's password is the unique password I save manually.

Currently I has problems with my O.S and I decided reinstall it. But also I have 2FA enable for mostly of my accounts, and firefox-sync is not the exception, and firefox-sync's 2FA is based on my gmail, so when I tried get logged on firefox-sync, firefox asks me for my verification code, but my verification code is in my gmail, and my gmail's password is in firefox-sync.

So I lost access to all my accounts, I lose my gmail, github, gitlab, stackoverflow, discord, etc etc... :'(

From the gmail side, I tried all that gmail let me try but unsuccessfully.

So, the only possibility that I see, is recover the information of the formatted partition and rebuild the previous state of Firefox. I mean:

Reading about firefox loggins, and taking a look to firefox's workdir (`$HOME/.mozilla`), I see firefox saves login's info in a json file located in `$HOME/.mozilla/$profile$/logins.json`.

So the basic idea is with a data recovery tool, try recover `.mozilla`s directory and replace it over the current environment so when I start firefox can get access to my login's info. But I'm not sure how much it is possible to recover the whole directory, and if is not posible, my question is:

What files next to `logins.json` should be my recovery targets to replace inside the `.mozilla` folder in order to reconstruct my accounts login information?

Dear Sirs,

today i did lockout everybody on a test server of a web application while playing with CSP on the server side. no modern browser was able to open the page anymore. but the real problem was that the configuration interface was also not accessable anymore.

the option security.csp.enable is long gone since FF 99 and i had to ""downgrade to FF 98"" to be able to access the misconfigured server.

please enable that security.csp.enable in about:config back again at least for the development version of FF. someone might need it. other options are to install risky extensions and i would like to avoid that in the future.

I currently use Chrome on Android & Chromebook as my main browser, but I would like to switch to using Firefox now across all my devices (linux, android, chromebook). To do this, I need to import my passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and have them sync between the Firefoxes on all of my devices, but it's not working. I have tried the following:

Method 1: I installed Chrome on my new Linux machine. Checked and made sure it had synced my passwords by logging into a website using Chrome. Then, on Firefox, I pressed alt to enable the toolbar, then File->Import from another browser. The pop-up says "No programs that contain bookmarks, history, or password data could be found."

Method 2: Chrome seems to have a feature to export the passwords to csv. So I exported the passwords from Chrome to a csv on Linux. To be thorough (because I am having trouble getting this to work), I used accounts.firefox.com to sign out the Firefox on my android phone and chromebook, then (on the phone) I deleted my browsing data, uninstalled firefox, and rebooted the phone. Back on Linux, I did about:config, then set signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled to true, then did about:logins then menu->"import from a file", selected the csv that I just exported from Chrome, and clicked Import. Import Complete, 332 logins added, 1 not added because it was missing a password. Logins successfully imported, hooray! For testing purposes, I create a unique new password entry, http://foo.com username "a" password "b". Then I go to about:preferences, make sure that syncing is on and I'm currently syncing logins and passwords, and press "sync now". Log in to my phone, install Firefox from the play store, start it up, sign in using my email and password (it says "syncing"), go to logins and passwords, click "saved logins". The only one listed is for foo.com, the fake one I created to test the syncing, but I expected to see all 333 there.

How do I get this to work?

I need to go over the head of the Mozilla Triage manager who has left https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1406865 open without a resolution for **seven years**. How do I do that? This is a bug reported in Firefox 57 and **still** not fixed in Firefox 125. I cannot find any support category anywhere in the Mozilla website that covers appealing a decision by one of their employees. The last comment from this uncooperative indivisual is "But given we support it on macOS and Windows yeah, it seems not very objectionable." Who is this **clerk** to override the fact that a number of customers very much find this "objectionable". I cannot find anything on https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/contact/ that addresses this issue. I cannot find even a surface mail address for Mozilla. For example my complaint has nothing to do with any of the following:

   I’m having problems with using Firefox
   I want to donate to Mozilla
   I have questions about using Mozilla’s trademarks
   I’d like to report misuse of a Mozilla trademark
   I want to hold an event in a Mozilla space
   I want Mozilla to sponsor my event
   I’d like permission to use a Mozilla logo
   I’m interested in Pocket’s sponsored content on Firefox
   I’m a member of the Press and have a question for Mozilla

Yes I am having a problem with Firefox, but the clerk responsible has, through sitting on this issue for **seven years**, basically told the entire community that he doesn't give a reservoir.

In particular I feel this unacceptable behaviour should be brought to the attention of senior management, but there are no contacts for anybody in senior management.
