Firefox did an update today, so I assume this has something to do with it. Every time I do a download (and I do a lot) the drop down list showing the downloads I've done pops out. It didn't do this prior to the update. It used only to appear when I selected it. Now it comes out every blasted time. It's very annoying and distracting. To be clear, I still want to see the download arrow/indicator/whatever so I can see the download is happening, but I don't want to see the list each time. How do I make it STOP? Image attached. Thank you.

Hello moz://a team,

Personally, I really like Firefox and have never encountered a problem with it. However, one day I wanted to another row of bookmarks on my homepage, so when I did, I saw that the the new row was already filled with bookmarks and i didn't remember adding them. To investigate I changed my homepage to display 4 rows and found and it too was filled with bookmarks of random websites and I had never added. There was also a lot of duplicates of the same website. I spent hours deleting the hundreds of bookmarks. and then the next week, there was another wave of more and more bookmarks. I've checked in the settings of Firefox but couldn't find an option to stop Firefox from adding more bookmarks without my permission. It may just be a bug, or that something is wrong. If there is an option that stops this but I've missed it please do tell me about it. And if there isn't one then please add the option in an update, please!

I have an iMac that is a decade old. Running macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6 That is as updated as I can get on this processor.

I had a normal "there is a newer version of Firefox available" update alert, so relaunched Firefox to update. So on Monday 4th April NZ time i got the update. As usual I got the message [in a dialogue box]: Close Firefox. A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time.

So far, normal. I closed Firefox, then relaunched. Same message. Did a logoff on my computer - same thing Did a full shutdown, login - same message. I got a bit radical - I dumped Firefox, deleted Trash. New installation (version 99.0.1) Same message;Close "Firefox. A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time."

Currently using (newly installed) Edge for Mac, until this problem can be sorted; I hope it is brief, I have used Firefox for most of the years I have had a computer.

The issue concerns the Flatpak version of Firefox on Linux. This issue only happens when I'm connected to my VPN router. For info, I'm using Fedora 35 Silverblue. This issue happens on Fedora 35 or Fedora 35 Silverblue. I been using Fedora since version 33 and such problem existed back then.

When connected to my VPN provider via my router, trying to start a Firefox Flatpak instance takes minutes upon minutes to load. I'm guessing it has to do with DNS query's Firefox does on start but I'm not sure. All I know is that when I connect directly to the internet without being hehind my VPN, Firefox loads in a split second. When I'm using the RPM version of Firefox supplied by Fedora, I do not have such issues even when connected to my VPN. This issue only affects Firefox Flatpak when behind a VPN. I tried opening the AppImage version of Firefox while connected to my VPN, and once again, it loaded within a few seconds. I been having this issue for many years and only figured out recently that my VPN connection was causing a problem.

I would like to point out that the Flatpak verion of Microsoft Edge and Chromium do start without any issues even while I'm connected to my VPN provider...

I was following this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos

Installed flatpak and repositories but when I try to use flatpak to install firefox I get "No remote refs found similar to ‘firefox’".

I have tried following a few other ways to get it installed, such as using sudo and using sudo su but that has not worked at all.

I followed to flatpak quick setup on Chromebook guide that is linked in the above help article and created the nested containers in crosh as well.

below is what happens if I go to flathub and copy-paste their recommended command to install firefox.

Remote ‘flathub’ found in multiple installations:

  1) system
  2) user

Which do you want to use (0 to abort)? [0-2]: 2 error: Nothing matches org.mozilla.firefox in remote flathub

Hi,

I'm having a really strange problem.

I'm using Firefox on WIN 11 with my new LG laptop.

When I access a website's drop-down menu, it does not offer me options that I can make a selection.

I know that it's missing the 2 options - because when I try it on other PCs - it works fine. So the behaviour is different (and works) on other computers.

And the stranger thing is; it also does not offer the options when I tried it with Chrome and Edge.

I tried clearing the history and cache - and it still gives the same behaviour.

I called the Tech Support of the website - and they said it's clearly a problem with my specific PC. I would tend to agree with them - because I can access their site without any issues on other PCs.

I can't figure out what's in common amongst the 3 browsers I tried on this LG laptop. The only thing I found in common is this laptop!

Any ideas - any thing I can try next? Really driving me nuts...  :)

Local Machine: Dell Inspiron i5-7200 / 16 GB RAM / Local Op Sys: Ubuntu 20.04LTS

Firefox version: 99.0 FFDE version: 100.0b5

Node.js version 14.18.1 npm version 6.14.15


I had a Node.js web app running on my local machine all usual browsers like Firefox, Firefox Dev Ed (FFDE), Chromium, Edge, Opera, etc till recently.

Recently it shows an error when run on Firefox (also on Chromium, Opera and Edge) although continuing to run okay on FFDE.

Firefox Error: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at file:///home/sandbar/Desktop/nodeapp-local/undefined. (Reason: CORS request not http).

Edge Error: Access to XMLHttpRequest at 'file:///home/sandbar/Desktop/nodeapp-local/undefined' from origin 'null' has been blocked by CORS policy: Cross origin requests are only supported for protocol schemes: http, data, chrome-extension, edge, https, chrome-untrusted.


Naturally, I need to test the web app on my local machine using several browsers before I should upload it to a server and trial it there.

So how do I configure the browser and/or app to allow access to local machine files ?

I recently installed a theme that I really like, but the search bar by default is a blinding white color and it contrasts heavily with the dark blue colors in the theme I picked.

Is there a way for me to edit the background color and text color of the search bar to be a different color? I've tried looking at different solutions and most of them make reference to userchrome or something else I have absolutely no idea how to work. Can someone explain to me, in the most simple and hard to get wrong terms as humanly possible, how to change the background and text color in the search bar? Is this something I edit the theme itself for? How do I do that?

Thanks in advance. Attached image shows the part of the browser I'm talking about if it somehow wasn't clear enough. I'd like to turn the white color into, say, dark blue or gray, and change the text color to a light blue or white.

My macbook is a 2019 16", running Monterey 12.3.1, and has the touch ID sensor on the top right of the keyboard. I love having it for all my log-ins, but can only make it work in Safari. When I look online I'm told to go into settings> privacy > and then just choose the toggle to turn it on. My version of Firefox (which says it's up to date) does not have that option in the Privacy and Security section of settings. Any thoughts? I'd rather use Firefox than Safari, but that is a HUGE feature to me. Thanks!

I suspect an add-on may have been recently updated, since those sites still work when I run them in a new private window. Is there an easy way to track down which add-on might be rewriting the URL?
