Today all of the sudden, one of my computers running Firefox won't connect to Youtube at all. It says security issue with HSTS. It also says there there is nothing I can do to resolve it. Surely that can't be true. Youtube runs on every other computer in the office just fine.

This has been bugging me for ages. Happened on Windows 10 and now on Windows 11.

I start watching some video on YouTube or whatever, decide it's not useful/what I want, stop playing it, close the tab or navigate away, but if my device locks, the controls for this old, discarded video, that I didn't want to watch, are on the lock screen.

I wouldn't mind if it was a video I was currently watching but it's somehow remembering the last thing I started to watch. I can see no hint anywhere else that it's still active in any way at all.

The only way to get rid seems to be to close Firfox.

This is very annoying because it seems you can't watch anything without Firefox remembering it and putting on the lock screen until the end of the session, so it could be cluttering things up all day unless I close everything and (in my case, because of prvicy settings) delete cookies and log myself out of most sites.

I've tried multiple searches but all I've found here is a post about turning off media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled but I don't actually want to do that, I just want Firefox to forget videos when I've closed the tab or navigated away from them.

Elsewhere I found a suggestion to disable dom.media.mediasession.enabled but that setting isn't found.

Any help much appreciated.

Apologies if I'm repeating a previous request - couldn't tell if it was submitted.

I'm running Windows 10. While changing the startup screen somehow an image I thought was deleted appeared and now is frozen, apparently on top of a Firefox window. I've rebooted, restarted and followed the Windows help suggestions with no success. Right now I don't know whether this is a Firefox or Windows problem. I updated Firefox today to the newest version before this happened.


Any help will be appreciated. I can open new Firefox windows.

I have two questions:

1. Will WASM and JIT be turned on or not affect the operation of RLBox?

I currently have the following about:config settings set to false, I'm wondering if this will cause the RLBox to not function?

javascript.options.ion javascript.options.baselinejit javascript.options.native_regexp javascript.options.asmjs javascript.options.wasm

I hope Mozilla staff will consider listing the operating status of RLBox in about:support, so that it will be clear at a glance.

2. Enabling "security.sandbox.content.shadow-stack.enabled" will cause add-ons to not function properly.

This setting seems to have been around for a long time. Is there any progress on this? Chrome has supported this feature for quite some time.

I would be grateful if you could help clarify this and inform me of the answer.

After one of the updates a few months ago, I have started to have trouble with firefox. After a while if I try to open a new tab and type in a link, the tab will try to load forever and I will not be able to open any more as doing another tab and typing a new link will have the same problem. I found that at first I could close the browser and reopen it to have the tab fully load and refresh whatever was already open, but after a bit that started to have an issue too. Most times now if I shut down and relaunch firefox within a few minutes the browser will open with all of the tabs open but they are all blank, with no links filled in, pages loaded, or anything. If I close and reopen after that then it only opens with a "new tab" page and everything that was open is lost. None of the more recent updates for firefox have seemed to fix this issue.

Thank you.

Unlike opening a regular new window or even just opening a new private browsing tab in an existing window, when I open a private browsing window, the address bar isn't auto-selected. I know I can use 'Ctrl+L' to select it but that's not a habit I've been able to train yet, and doing so would be much more frustrating than just using firefox in a more intuitive way. How can I change this? Is there anything that can be done? I can't find any relevant setting when digging into the 'about:config' section, nor in any of the regular app settings.

Hi. I just hoped on my computer and firefox seems to not want to load any site. Somehow this support page is the only thing that seems to be working. My other browsers such as Chrome is working perfectly fine, I'm able to search whatever & watch videos no problem so it does not appear to be a wifi issue...

Everything I search on firefox leads to a blank page that doesn't appear to be loading no matter how long I leave it for. The menu button in firefox does not work either

I've tried: - Restarting the computer several times - Turning off Anti-Virus - Clearing cookies & data

I've attached screenshots of what it looks like whenever I try to search for something... Looking to hear of any solutions you may have!

On a laptop running Windows 11, all videos I play in Firefox have been strangely dark and orange. Depending on their original appearance, this can make them unwatchable.

This only affects videos in Firefox, and only on this laptop. Chrome, Windows video player (and Firefox on my other devices) do not share this issue. The issue affects all monitors I connect the laptop to.

I have attempted: -A thorough search of Firefox settings and found nothing related. -Refresh and reinstall of Firefox -in about:config

   gfx.color_management.native_srgb to true
   Confirmed ui.videoDynamicRange was set to to 0

None of these has helped. According to all the evidence I can find online, a similar issue was caused by a problem with HDR video files and fixed in an update 2 years ago, but I am running version 127.0 and am up to date.

Windows 10. Have used Firefox for years with no problem. Out of the blue, when Firefox is invoked, it comes up, but the screen dims after a few seconds, an the hourglass appears and Firefox freezes at that point. I have to use Task Manager to close it. I tried uninstall and that failed. Then I manually deleted the Firexfox program files. When I tried to install the program from Firefox, that failed as well with a window that pops and says there was a problem. Then the install window freezes (!) and again I have to resort to Task Manager to stop the program. What to do to get Firefox running again? Thanks. Bob Ochsman ochsman@gmail.com

Hi! After a routine update today to Mozilla Firefox 127.0 for Linux Mint, Firefox is asking for my master password before letting me continue. Sync does not appear to be enabled.

I'd really rather it didn't do this, because my password manager is now always open and accessible. Previously, the master password request was only triggered when I came on a site that needed a password.

Anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks for any pointers!

My Problem: When I open any Dropdown for my Favorites (including the Bookmarks arrow on the left) it leaks past the Firefox Window and behind my Windows toolbar (When Using DisplayFusion only, more on that later). Some items then become unreachable: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-06-15-08-17-53-5a6e2c.png

This does not happen with the settings dropdown. It correctly stops at the toolbar: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-06-15-07-57-17-2e5d8a.png

What would fix the problem:

  • The behaviour of the Favorites dropdowns should be the same as the Settings one in my opinion.
  • I would be fine with dropdowns staying inside the Firefox Window at all time.

Note on the cause of the problem: Using the default Windows ToolBar makes the dropdown go OVER the ToolBar: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-06-15-08-17-14-bc7e78.png

However, I am using a software called DisplayFusion that overrides Windows ToolBar for extra features and customization. The dropdown goes behind DisplayFusion's toolbars. I will also ask the devs on their side for a solution but I still think the dropdowns behaviours between Settings and Bookmarks on Firefox should be the same.

Thanks!

Hi folks,

I run a server which is ONLY accessible from my own IP address. I have a particular script on that server which deletes certain log and temporary data files at the end of a job run. I have a problem where those files being deleted WITHOUT me visiting the page !!

Somehow Firefox appears to be randomly visiting that page all on it's own, without a window or tab open which is then deleting the files at the wrong times without me doing anything.

I have put some tracking in the script and the http request is DEFINITELY coming from my IP.

The user agent is being reported as: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/115.0

The page address is not being recorded in my browsing history.

How is this happening ? I only have 2 extensions installed: Tab Reloader and UBlock Origin.

Is there a way to track ALL activity that Firefox is doing so I can trace where this is coming from please ?

I'll point out that to my knowledge, this is ONLY happening on this specific page on my own server and not anywhere else that I am aware of. All my other scripts on that server have tracking as well, but none of them have been randomly run.

I need to track this down as right this moment I have the original script renamed and I'm having to use £%~£%&{ chrome to run it as I cannot trust FF NOT to run it !!!!

Any help would be appreciated.

I am currently using Ubuntu 24.04. I recently switched from the snap ubuntu package to using the firefox APT package. However, I've noticed this really weird issue. Whenever I download a file, it always seems to have the "file://" link or mime type.

Say for example I download an mp4 video, trying to open it via firefox results in a dialog asking me to "select which application i want to open this file link in"

I have tried refreshing firefox, and tried completely removing it from my operating system (a search of my entirety of / showed no traces of anything relating to firefox), but even after a clean install, the issue persisted.

The only way I found that can fix this issue is by using firefox nightly, or using the firefox flatpak. And I'd prefer to not use either.

I was monitoring the browser console, and upon clicking on the file in the downloads list, It seems that firefox gets this error:

Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: defaultButton is undefined

   _setInitialFocusIfNeeded chrome://global/content/elements/dialog.js:318
   _postLoadInit chrome://global/content/elements/dialog.js:332
   connectedCallback chrome://global/content/elements/dialog.js:149

dialog.js:318:9

This error does not occur on firefox nightly.

I believe I have troubleshooted this as much as possible on my end, and I'm unsure of what to do about this. Could I please get a bit of help?
