I ran into some problems recently as I usually clear out everything that was saved in my internet folder. I go to Tools/Options/Privacy/Security/Clear Data, well, this is about a week, but an INSISTENT 267 bits are REFUSING to go and be let free from my cached web content.

Additionally, I usually run an RKILL scan, a JRT scan, and a Malwarebytes AdwCleaner scan when I've finished logging off, for security reasons. The JRT scan flagged a "staged folder" in my FF profile, and had removed it. The folder had some sort of code in it.

Um, while we're at it, is FF still using IE as a "gateway"? I know at one time it was, but I seem to be also harangued by Searchscopes.

could someone help me out, please.

I'm using FF 76.01 and windows 10.

Thanks so much in advance,

MM.

P.S. also got a report that one of my blog tabs had been breached, with an ad from Avast - is this common?

Hello,

Firefox 76.0.1 is causing me problems...

For example if I call a PHP program to log out, I use the JavaScript command:

function Logout() {

 self.location = "Root.php?LogOff=Y"

}

No problem there, but when I want to log back in I use:

<form name='detail' method='Post' onsubmit='Root.php'> <input type='text' name='UserId' class='Full' style='border: 0;'> <input type='Password' name='Password' class='Full'>

(The class Full, just sets the width to 100% as this is in a table)

The the JavaScript is simply:

function LogIn() {

 document.detail.submit();

}

Seems simple enough, but the Root.PHP receives:

 LogOff -> Y
 UserId -> <name>
 Password -> <password>

Not what I was expecting!

The only other thing of note is that I have started using local.storage to save information, and this too passes information from previous calls.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Richard Gamester

Buenas. Llevo utilizando Firefox casi casi desde Windows 95. Y siempre ha ido fino y buen, con velocidad, sin problemas y con una experiencia superior casi siempre, al resto de navegadores. Pero desde las últimas actualizaciones de Firefox, ésto ha cambiado. Tengo la versión 76.0.1(64 bits). Y llevo mucho mucho tiempo con problemas, que me han cansado y he decidido que hasta aquí he llegado. Tengo instalados además, Chrome y Edge. Chrome me parece pesado, porque abre un montón de procesos que no pido, no necesito y me ralentizan el ordenador. Edge no me gusta. Sí que lo veo ágil y Microsoft le ha lavado la cara mucho. Pero no me gusta, y no me da confianza. Al contrario de Firefox. Pero arrastro los siguientes problemas, para que veáis lo impertinente que soy: 1. Imposibilidad de instalar complementos, como puede ser por ejemplo, el de LetyShop. 2. Muchas veces, la página no carga. Se queda en blanco, intentando acceder, pero nada. La mayoría de las ocasiones, refresco y funciona. Pero, no es lo suyo. 3. No tengo bloqueadores. No tengo anti-pops, salvo los que pueda tener por defecto Firefox. Mi antivirus tampoco los bloquea. Pero muchas páginas me dicen que no pueden abrir ventanas. Son páginas de trabajo (IBM, por ejemplo) donde no creo que haya código malicioso. Y sin embargo, algo impide que Firefox las abra. Antes, era puntual. Ahora es cansino. 4. De vez en cuando, pierdo la sesión abierta. Si. Tengo muchas ventanas. Pero me es imposible recuperarlas porque no funciona el histórico bien, no hay posibilidad de recuperarla entera, y es cansino tener que ir una a una abriendo. Y en la ayuda... bueno. Llamarle ayuda es un decir. Tontería diría yo, porque quien pone esas cosas, lo ha hecho en una versión prehistórica (no coincide a veces ni las opciones del menú que se indica...) y desde luego, no ha probado lo que predica.

Es una pena. Voy a dar un voto de confianza, porque la verdad, tanto en pc como en el móvil, siempre he usado Firefox. Pero me canso de tanto problema. Espero que esta situación cambie pronto. Mientras, voy a buscar un sustituto, que seguramente será Chrome.

Un saludo.

Recent updates are causing problmes with gmail and video sound.

Using URL https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox I keep seeing a not connected, trying again message. Closed tab and opened new one with same URL and just get blank white screen. Works fine on Chrome.

Sound does not work on Youtube or Amazon Prime video sometimes. Reopen same URL in Chrome and all is good again.

BTW, it would be useful if Firefox browser upgrades could be skipped. Sometimes one needs to open a browser in a hurry but no can do because Upgrades seem they are going to upgrade, user wishes dismissed. Maybe updates would be a better word than upgrades. Not as bad a Windows but y'all don't want to be like them, do ya? They are the McDonald's of software, they sell a lot of it but it ain't very good.

Thanks for letting me whine. I will go back to my safe space now...

I am running Firefox v76.0.1 64bit on an iMac.

Suddenly in Gmail emails accessed by the web interface are showing no images with the broken image link, some are showing around 10% of the images and others are showing all the images. This suddenly started earlier this week.

I have tried safe mode with no plugins and still exactly as above. I have tried turning Advanced Protection off and again no change. The attached screenshot is an example of the problem.

If I access the emails using Safari then I have no issue.

Good day, i met next issue with Coockes transfer during redirections (i suppose that).

I.e. when i try to download smth from Google drive i got: An error occurred during a connection to doc-0o-ag-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I try to follow standard advises such as disable tracking and cookies blocking (as well i disable fingerprints and all addons and delete all cookies and history storage and it's didn't help at all).

I try to download in private mod as well, but got stacked with same issue. With Chromium all works fine.

I have installed Firefox and Firefox Beta on MacOS and open them in that order so both are running concurrently; Firefox (not beta!) is selected as the default browser on my computer. Whenever I follow a link from any application that is not a browser, new tabs are opened in Firefox Beta.

If Firefox Beta is not running, tabs open as expected, in Firefox.

My expectation is that tabs would always open in the browser that is set as the default.

Is there any way I can tell the Operating System to open new tabs in Firefox and not in Firefox Beta?

Hello,

I love Firefox. Thanks for making it and please keep up the good work. I used Firefox for years, switched to Chrome for about 10 and have now come back to Firefox again. Love the browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory config option. This was crucial to me returning to Firefox and I suggest you make this the default.

Anyway...

The issue I'm writing this for is that Firefox seems to be preventing my computer from sleeping. When I run

powercfg /requests

from a command prompt run as administrator, I get the following info: SYSTEM: [DRIVER] Realtek High Definition Audio (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0255&SUBSYS_10251259&REV_1000\5&26841d0a&0&00) An audio stream is currently in use. [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

This seems to show Firefox running audio that is preventing the computer from sleeping. However, none of the tabs are currently playing any audio. Thought I'd report the issue here.

Essentially I had to reset my PC and restore it. However I did not have the intelligence to make a copy of my Firefox data / bookmarks / passwords etc.

I always have sync turned on and I assumed that when I logged back into my account after the restore my data would sync back down. Unfortunately for the life of me I can not get firefox to sync to my browser.

It's the only PC I had with Firefox so I can even restore from a different device. I'm at a loss as to what I could possible do at this stage.

Hello.

I use 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Xubuntu 20.04 and same thing happens on every computer. After clean system shutdown or restart, Firefox keeps restoring tabs I used. This never happens if I close Firefox first. Also this never happens when I close and reopen firefox in the same session. I tried everything: - obvious "Restore previous session" restore in options - about:config turning various options: browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash browser.sessionstore.restore_tabs_lazily browser.sessionstore.resuming_after_os_restart browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand privacy.clearOnShutdown.sessions - i even created "user.json" with restore line as someone suggested None of these measures helped. I thought that It may be connected to XFCE session store somehow, so I went through disabling that too - no change. No other program happens to do the same. After reboot, when someone starts Firefox, all my tabs from previous session are reopened instantly. This happens on my both Xubuntu workstations, but never happens on my Windows computers. Please help.
