I just tried to open a new window using File, New Window. It is GONE. I always use that. Now all I get are New Tab New Container Tab (grayed out so I can't select that) New Private window, some other stuff.

The same is true if I right click. I get: Open Link in New Tab Open Link in New Private window.

What did I do to cause these changes?

Hey !! Mozilla, I just updated ....What happened to the compact mode for Bookmarks..Now they are double spaced they take up too much room.. Bring back compact mode or I will have to find another browser that enables a compact mode. Infuriating.

"Sorry, the video player failed to load.(Error Code: 101104)" - this error message happens on some sites but not others. I believe there are more than one type of streaming transmission but do not know how to determine which is failing. For example, the streaming daily report on Democracynow.org fails while the reports on http://www.bbc.com/news/video_and_audio/international does not. This has been a problem for weeks now. I view both of these sites every day but must now use Microsoft Edge (ugh) to view democracynow.org.

Hello, I am still using windows 8.1 64bit & refuse windows 10, due to high risk privacy, yes predictable hollow words are said, BUT is Microsoft, a greedy un-scrupled money making, money hungry corporate entity, wants us to willing give it our private details voluntarily or under thin layer of extortion.

Hence my sticking to windows 8.1 as I have certain control, mainly updates.

Will Mozilla browsers be specifically supporting older operating systems like windows 8.1 into the coming years, not just months, e.g. until January 2023

Yes is a blunt question, but is eluded against in other responses, maybe is Microsoft buy out to sacrifice mozilla loyal users or similar, same query is for Brave browser. Mozilla I think is last Bastian for decency & morality, a leader in justice & honour.

I have a dozen old embedded device modules (circa 2003) which can host a web page. When I access the device through my local intranet (192.168.0.xxx), the web page displays correctly. However, when the same page is accessed through my DNS service (xxx.gotdns.org:xxxx) over the web, the Firefox INSPECT:network tool indicates that the document is type:text and displays the HTML in a text format. The first line of the HTML document is :<!DOCTYPE html>.....

These devices are non-secure information-only devices, but at least Firefox allows for HTTP: exceptions.

However, I cannot understand why Firefox treats the same content differently depending on the path. Is there a way to force Firefox to actually look at the contents of the packet and treat it accordingly?

Having lots of issues with Firefox at the moment, from the browser taking 5 minutes before my home page will even load to this issue which is making me second guess using this browser and i cant seem to find an answer in the help suggestions as im not getting any error codes or anything to point to what is the problem.

When i click on a link - a safe link (even FF states its secure) The new browser tab's link will just constantly cycle loading without loading. Ive tried clearing cache and cookies and it makes no difference.

Ive tried turning off my adblocker and other safety extensions. No difference.

Now yes i am running an old system, but i checked to see if Firefox works on it and it does ( Windows8.1) i started using this as chrome is no longer supported on there.

I run a Windows laptop, version 8.1. Two days ago the monthly system rollup occurred followed by Firefox browser updates. The user comment section of the Foxnews website disappeared completely. I can still login and out but nothing appears for any article comments. I see the comments are still there when I open a Chrome browser on my Android phone so I know Fox didn't discontinue user commenting. I have looked at add-ons, ad blockers, etc but no success reactivating this feature.

Anyone else having this problem? If so, is there a known cause/solution? Thanks

I am a member of teaching staff at a university in the UK. Most sites we common sign-in via SSO but some sites have different sign-in methods. I am no expert on any of this, merely a user. 2 particular sites I need access to have failed to let me in in recent months. They generate a pop-up (see enclosed window-shot) asking me for my username and password and then keep coming up with the same pop-up. Both sites work with Chrome on my laptop and Opera on my phone. Our systems team have relayed me the following explanation:

“The latest versions of Firefox aren’t compatible with the “Extended Protection” for Windows Integrated authentication (NTLM) security setting that we have set on the Faculty Intranet…

The reason for using extended protection is that it enhances the existing Windows Authentication functionality to mitigate authentication relay or "man in the middle" attacks. This setting has been in place since the tail end of last year…”

I don't want to have to use Chrome, can't use Edge as this is a Windows 8.1 machine. Any chance of solving this?

Hello, I am unable, for the past 2 days, to load my webmail from Outlook.com (outlook.live.com/mail) and my outlook calendar online (outlook.live.com/calendar), but have no problem to access OneDrive and my other MS apps. I get in both cases a "failed to load Javascript" error messages, failing to load the "chunk 5016797" in mail, and the "chunk 917352" in calendar. Refreshing the tabs, restarting FF, restarting the computer, restarting FF in troubleshooting mode (no extensions) as suggested in an existing thread on this topic, updating FF and updating Windows (still Win8.1, though), didn't help. I access normally both mail and calendar in Chrome, but want to keep and use FF as my main browser. Can you help fixing this JS issue ? Many thanks
