A friend (who knows even less about technology than me) has an old Dell Inspiron 1501 which has been running Linux Mint 18 Xfce, which is now unsupported. I'm beginning to regret it but just to keep it going for a couple of years I offered to update to Mint 20 Xfce, which is the last version listing 1 Gb as the minimum Ram (everything later or other version are 2 Gb or more), which is the most that system can use. Once the wifi was eventually working (old b43 broadcom driver) most things went fine (except Team Viewer, which works on another Mint 20 Xfce system, but that's not a question for here). However, she uses Yahoo mail, and for some reason just attempting to load the login page (login.yahoo.com) causes Firefox to crash (I mentioned Thunderbird in the title as I attempted to access Yahoo Mail with it, but because it needs to access the Yahoo Mail page (as I think this is now based on App codes rather than passwords), and doing that crashed Thunderbird also). I'm pretty sure I have methodically gone through all the troubleshooting steps on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems (clear cookies & cache by deleting history; clear startup cache; refresh; reinstall; new profile). Firefox doesn't crash in Troubleshoot mode, despite the fact is seems to still use hardware acceleration, even though I thought it would disable that. Hence, I'm at the end of what I know to try (and that's just from following the guide, I am not an expert) and would be grateful for any help anyone can offer. I attach an image that lists all the submitted crash reports, as they will refer to slightly different conditions as I tried all the options mentioned above. I'm using my own PC to submit this (so any hardware & system data submitted by this web-form won't be relevant), not the Inspiron 1501 that has the issue. I can open the Yahoo mail page on this machine (same version of Firefox) and also on the Inspiron 1501 using Chrome (but there was a different reason relating to security why we couldn't log in via that). Would really like to get Firefox (and Thunderbird) working on the laptop, if possible.

I opened firefox today and after an update found an unwanted item on my toolbar - a little puzzle piece icon that brings up a menu of extensions. I have no use for this button and I never will, and I do not want it on my toolbar, but for some reason the option to remove it has been greyed out and it cannot be moved or removed using toolbar customisation. Someone please tell me how I can remove this pointless item from my toolbar.

I just updated the browser. Just prior to doing that, I used used this website https://www.carpetmdinfo.com/ without any problems. Now, as click on the different tabs of this website (Home, About Us, Our Cleaning Process, etc.), nothing happens. The same website works without problems with Safari.

Does anyone else experience similar problems?

I looked at reporting the problem as a bug, but I am sorry, it is too complicated for me. If someone could replicate the problem and report it, if in fact the same happens to others, I'd appreciate it.

I'm trying to perform the clean reinstall for Firefox on my computer. But, I see the instructions for the uninstall, Delete the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:

   Windows: (Note: Check both folders.)
       C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
       C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox 

Being I'm not computer wizard I had trouble finding the location of such folder. But when I accessed my program list in my windows program list I see a program named Mozilla maintenance service. When I click on that I see a format/window to "uninstall C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Maintenance Service\." Is this the program/folder I need to uninstall to complete the proper instructions I need to perform a clean install? If so, when I delete it I then reinstall Firefox once again after the uninstall procedure? Is performing the uninstall procedure going to screw up my Firefox browser and my many bookmarks I have accumulated over the years? Can someone please help and explain? Thank you.

Hello,

I use several websites that utilize mutual TLS authentication, also known as client certificate authentication. As a developer behind some of these websites, we will frequently launch and relaunch some of these sites to test different changes, so we don't usually bother with getting a properly signed certificate for the site. Developers must add a security exception for accessing the sites, which then prompt for user authentication using client certificates.

The problem I am encountering is that the "Remember this decision" checkbox on the "User Identification Request" does not seem to be working properly. There is one site which makes several connections when the page is first loaded and we have to click "Ok" on the "User Identification Request" about 10 times before the page fully loads. Other sites will randomly prompt for the request again when fetching data. The hostname and port do not change between requests.

I've tried replicating this behavior with a basic Apache httpd server setup with client authentication, but it doesn't seem to happen for the basic site. If this is happening due to a server configuration issue, I would like to know what it is that is causing it so that I can fix it. When using Chrome, this behavior does not happen.

Thank you!

Steps to Reproduce: 1) Install Multi-Account Containers add-on 2) Create several different containers 3) Open tabs in each of the different containers 4) Restart Firefox by going to about:profiles and clicking "Restart normally"

Observed behavior: Tabs are not restored to any container upon restart.

Expected behavior: Tabs are restored to the containers with which they were opened.

Other remarks: This poses a security and privacy risk, as information leakage occurs when previously segregated websites are loaded outside of their containers all at once.
