I noticed during a firmware download with the file extension .DAT that Firefox removed the extension. The file was not recognizable during an attempted firmware upgrade afterward. This is a new issue occurring sometime in the past several months, since last firmware update. Firefox preferences are set to download .DAT files. No other settings are listed for that file extension. I verified the issue points toward Firefox by checking the download with another web browser which completed the download with the extension.

My list of bookmarks that used to automatically display down the left side of my screen are now relegated to a heading in the bookmarks toolbar at the top of the page. This is completely useless to me. What happened to the display down the left side, and how can I stop this from NEVER changing in the future? I've had this happen before, and every time it does it takes me half a day to find the hidden solution to the problem.

Firefox Already Running Message - Due to same Domain user running on multiple machines.

We run the same domain user on multiple machines. It uses the same app data which causes fire-fox to use the same profile in the app data. Is there a way to get around the profile locking when it use by one of the machines? Chrome and other browsers do not have this issue.

Been using Chase.com all along for years. Just today I am unable to sign-in. I enter the user ID and password but the "sign-in" button remains grayed out and inactive. First thing I did was try Chrome and got into Chase without problem. Checked for and updated firefox, cleared Chase cookie data, no help. Using firefox version 102.0.1 (64-bit). Firefox on my iphone got into Chase OK. Surprising that a major site like Chase would be a problem with desktop firefox.

When I click the reload button or press CRTL+R, I expect firefox to return to the top of the current page and reload the current page.

But lately (a few months now) firefox does not return to the top of the page, it stays at the position that I'm currently viewing and reloads.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode by holding the shift key, and it still shows the same problem. I even tested this on another computer (not mine) with the same result.

If this is a new feature of firefox, can I turn it off?

thanks

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Captive portal detection for public Wi-Fi login fails

I'm using Firefox 102 on Ubuntu Mate 20.04 (the vanilla one from apt), but I think I've experienced the same with a couple of previous versions too ...

So, I've sat in one Espresso House in Denmark; tried to connect to their public Wi-Fi with Firefox in private mode, captive portal went fine, and I was on the Internet. Apparently I had gotten a danish IP address there, since google.com thereafter was in danish.

Now, I sit in a different Espresso House, also in Denmark; however, here, captive portal does not work; in the sense that:

As shown on first screenshot, first I get "You must log in to this network before you can access the Internet.", and I get a "Open network login page" button.

I click on the "Open network login page" button, I can see browser wants to load http://detectportal.firefox.com/canonical.html - but in the end, I do not get the Espresso House login page, but instead I get a redirect to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/captive-portal , where the "You must log in to this network before you can access the Internet." still stands, but there is no more "Open network login page" button (as shown on the second screenshot)

If I restart the browser in this shop, I think I get the exactly same process - Espresso House wi-fi login page never gets shown, only the https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/captive-portal ...

Strangely, at this point, I do get access to the internet through a browser - but google.com is then in swedish, which I guess means, that there is some sort of a VPN of that shop's wi-fi to Sweden. On the other hand, I don't get internet elsewhere on my computer - for instance, if I want to do `sudo apt update` from the command line, I get errors like "Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?)" - which is what I otherwise get in (the first mentioned) Espresso House, before I've connected to wi-fi via captive portal (once I connect to wi-fi via captive portal there, `sudo apt update` or any other network access from command line is fine).

(Note: my android phone in the same shop, does indeed show Espresso House Wi-Fi login prompt upon Wi-Fi connection, and I can login there fine).

Why does this happen, and how can I force Firefox to show me the actual captive portal so I can login to Wi-Fi - instead of redirecting me to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/captive-portal ?

Mozilla Firefox keeps crashing, mostly at startup and if I do manage to get it running it crashes after a while. Doesn't respond anymore, and even the crash reporter crashes. I have tried the following things:

Clean up FF Reinstall and refresh (last attempt included deleting the entire Mozilla folder in Program Files) several times Updated Windows Restarted laptop after every reinstall attempt

It won't open in troubleshoot mode.

I am running Windows 10 on a Lenovo Thinkpad 540 laptop.

Additionally, neither Chrome nor Edge will let me access the Mozilla.org website. I downloaded the custom installer on my phone and uploaded it in Mydrive to get in onto my laptop.

Funny detail: I am in Belgium. I was in Ireland for a week last week and it didn't happen once. Got back home and trouble was back.

My husband is having the same issues, by the way.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I configured my Windows 10 Firefox proxy to use system proxy settings, and I have a script can based on different network environment modify the system proxy autoconfiguration script address (HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL) in registry to update the proxy settings. Internet Explorer works well - new proxy configuration usually become effective in 1 or 2 minutes after the change. However, each time after my script changes the registry proxy address (without FF restart), I have to go to Firefox Tools->Settings->Proxy to manually change it to another value (in my case it's from "Use system proxy settings" to any other value), confirm it, and then change it back. Then FF is able to reload the autoconfiguration script to make it work. This is really a headache.

I just wonder is there a way to notify FF to reload the proxy autoconfiguration script address from registry from command line so that my script can trigger it automatically after the registry is modified?

Thanks.

GCI.com is a service provider in my area. I have only an Email account with them. At the Login of my Email account,the Firefox Browser 'displays an extra old w98 pane .' This is at the Secure Log In where you enter your Web Mail Pass Word. If the Password has been saved with Firefox - the 'Mouse click selection of the Account (User Name)_ drifts horizontally along this Panes edge.

I contacted GCI support,and they simply suggested that I use 'Chrome,or Microsofts Edge Browser. I cannot prevent high band Videos with those Browsers on this Windows 10 computer. I simply do not know what is being 'Allowed with them,and what is not. Typically I utilize a 'Hot Spot with this Internet Connection,and do not have Data Band in a months allotment. So my Browsing is conservative. My phone is a non-contract ATT paygo phone. Do with this most itenarant is out of the way for Troubleshooting.

I have Photos of the GCI.com Web Site interaction,and I have the 'HTML code from the GCI.Com secure sign on Web Page. As it looks while loaded and interacting. Which I will add here.

 - I have loaded the Web Site from different machines W10. 
       [ ]Same result occured
- I have considered reinstalling the Firefox Browser (until above).
- Right now I am considering a Code Problem. And what approach to take.

[ ] It would be simple for the Firefox support to simply load the Firefox Browser,while visiting the GCI.com Website,Email Login. And view if at your Location,the situation occurs for the Firefox Troubleshooting Team. If this does not occur at other persons Frequent with their own Firefox Browser. I do not know what I will do.Or reason this would occur only on my Firefox instalation.Or my location .

Upload A PDF File To Firefox Troubleshooting

[ ] Im aware of all the Security Problems with todays Internet. I was certain I could see the HTML 'frame within the Web Site Code,But cannot see a way to Upload the PDF File at this writing.
