Even though I have browser.privateWindowSeparation.enabled set on "false", private windows appear separate regardless and it is bothering me. I restarted my browser, logged out and then back in, toggled the setting on and off again, but the damn thing stays in this uncomfortable spot that would be awkward to explain as opposed to simply having it blend in with the other windows innocuously. How do I fix this?

Hello,

I recently purchased a VPN for my laptop. I bought a designated IP address set to Toronto, Canada. However, Firefox shows my location in Japan.

In my communications with VPN server they believe since whatsmyipaddress shows me where my VPN says it should, but FF shows me in Japan, the problem may be a leak at your end. When I created this account today and set my country to Canada (as suggested by PIA), closed everything and rebooted my computer I had hoped to see Canada (en) when I began a search. However, it still shows Japan.

I value my privacy on all devices and turning off location is the first thing I do. I'm now wondering if FF is getting this location from Windows.

Any assistance is most appreciated. Thank you,

When I access a location-aware website, I'm asked if I'll allow it to use my location. My problem is that the pop-up window won't allow me to do anything. I can't block, allow, close the window — nothing. Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere?

I upgraded from 126.0.1 to 127 today. Upon update, all my windows are gone. The only way I could access them is to revert to an older profile backup and reinstall 126.0.1.

I tried exporting my session with Tab Session Manager in 126.0.1 and reopen them in 127, but that only restores the last tab of each window (oddly). The json clearly lists 3 windows each with multiple tabs. I tried copying the sessionstore-backups folder, but no dice.

In the about:profiles page I can see that the Root Directory for my current profile is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 When I click the Open Directory button it does nothing. When I manually navigate to /home/username/.mozilla/firefox I can see that there is no folder there called no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978

The Local Directory is show as: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/cache/mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 This exits and opens with the Open Directory button.

If I search for no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 in the file manager, I see that there are two folders with this name, on at the Local Directory path shown above and the other at: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox My assumption is that this is actually the Local Folder (it contains files with today's date)

My question is, why does about:profiles show the wrong path for the Local Directory or why is the actual Local Directory in the wrong place (it appears that the path shown in about:profiles is the normal default location)?

I tried creating a new profile and it was created in exactly the same way: the Local directory path is: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox but about:profiles says it is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox

I would rather have my profile in the normal default location but I want to ensure that I don't leave pointers to the wrong location that could cause problems.

I am running Firefox 121.0 (64-bit) from flathub on Debian GNU/Linux 12 (bookworm).

Any help appreciated.

When downloading anything or printing to pdf, the page where I am to choose the destination and the file name suddenly expands and occupies the entire monitor screen as if in full screen mode, but the symbol in the upper corner for the window size shows it not to be in full screen mode. The arrows which should shrink the size of the window appear at the edges but they do not work.

Screenshot 1 shows the print page as it appears on the monitor. When I click on PRINT, I get Screenshot 2. What the screenshot does not show is that the arrow to change the window size was at the edge at the bottom (but unlike other such windows it did not move the window boundary) and the toggle to change to full screen or vice versa has disappeared.

This has gone on for years despite regular updates to my Firefox version. It appears that nobody at Firefox/Mozilla is interested in fixing this. So, is there a simple way for a non-geek to work around this?

My current work-around is to copy the URL and open it in Chrome. Chrome does not have this problem.

Error code: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR when loading pages on www.bbc.com website. I have done a search on the internet and it seems this is a common problem with Firefox and does not affect othere browesers. I have done what was advice given online but it does not solve the problem. It is getting so bad I may have to start using one of the other browsers even though I prefare Firefox.

Hello, in my "Themes" section in the add-ons manager, I can view all the themes I have downloaded, and there are default ones I did not choose to install/download, and I would really like to disable these recommendations; for these, it only gives me the option "manage" whereas the ones I downloaded I also have the option choose to remove or report. They are not relevant to me, and they take up space and are a distraction from those I am interested in. Is there a way to disable these "Recommended Themes" section???

Hello,

I am unable to either log in or access accounts on the websites indeed.com, x.com and chatgpt's openai.com

I used different computers (Windows 10 and Windows 11), different networks (Public library and private residence), and different versions of Firefox (125 and 126.0), one browser without any add ons and another with the "uBlock Origin" one, and I kept observing captcha or human authentication related errors.

With x.com, I would pass the human verification challenge (solve 10 puzzles), and then I would get the error "Something went wrong. Due to a technical issue, we couldn't complete this request. Please try again." I recorded my screen, and here you can see the video: https://web.archive.org/web/20240604035149/https://trello.com/1/cards/665e5d995d2e821054d66ac5/attachments/665e638096e76922e1404bd1/download/DISABLEMENT_-_unable_to_log_into_X_despite_passing_10_step_captcha_-_Screen_Recording_-_Made_with_FlexClip_-_20240603T172000PDT_-_shortened.mp4

Which makes Firefox (correctly) block the page if you have Tracking Protect enabled because it sees X trying to involve 3rd parties.“ Slow clap.
