Sorry I asked the question in the title. I cannot open links in emails or on websites sometimes. I am using Firefox but even if I paste the link into Microsoft Edge the link will not work. I do not know why and it has only started happening lately - within the last month or so. Any advise gratefully received. Maybe it is my system or settings or Firefox or Bitdefender. I am a techophobe so please bear that in mind when you respond. Thank you

I am pasting this video link first to show exactly is happening when I use Google Images Search results. https://youtu.be/HD-GPkORQPA

This happened suddenly. Everything was fine when I last used google image results, I was playing a game and when I alt+tabbed to search for something, this was happening. I have no idea what could have caused it since I didn't install any new extensions, CSS styles, programs in my PC nor any big changes that would give me an idea of where to start.

I already tried disabling all the extension and that didn't help at all. The only way I've managed to make this stop, was when I opened a private window. There the image search results were fine and I could zoom in, and out and no weird scrollbar issues were happening.

I went back to a normal window in Firefox, and noticed that if I log out from my Google account, this will also fix the issue. And when I logged back in, the issue was happening again.

Anyone have any idea why this would happen, and how I can fix it? Thank you!

I woke up this morning and my tab bar on Firefox was out of control. I figured out how to shrink the tabs in about:config. However, there is a huge space at the end of the tabs that is completely unnecessary. I've been googling all morning. I tried to find compact mode--but "density" is gone, even when I go back into about:config and enable it. The only other help I found was to change the CSS code and unfortunately, that is outside my wheelhouse.

Is there ANY way I can get my old tab bar back so that the tabs fill the top of the screen as opposed to having a huge empty space at the end?

   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

My printer is printing invoices from ebay but the logo and image previews are now larger (and cropped). I tried resetting the printer no luck I logged into the same area on Safari and produced a pdf that printed fine When I went back to Firefox and generated a pdf (print using the system dialogue..) it generated the sam problem

To be clear - The images are much bigger but cropped in the window dedicated to displaying it on the invoice so it only shows a small section of the image.

is this a current bug? How do I get help from a trouble shooting chat window? Thanks Mac Monterey Firefox 103.0.2

Hire staff instead of your blind leading the blind approach would be appreciated.

Case in point, password security regarding access to my Last Pass vault!

Through one of your updates, my master password to access my Last Pass account is shown which allows anyone to access my last pass vault. Your instructions are useless and incorrect and your real support is a joke.

If you have an accurate solution that applies to your CURRENT version, I would appreciate your help.

As a FYI, Chrome and the other normal browsers have retained the requirement to provide their master password to gain access to my Last Pass vault.

Aside from this issue and lack of real support, your browser is great. If I can's get a solution from you, I will have to stop using your browser.

I was surprised today to visit a site and notice the "permissions" icon appear at the left of the address bar, showing me that cross-site cookies were allowed for this site. I have Enhanced Tracking Protection set to "Strict", so obviously this was a worrying thing to happen.

Looking into it a bit further, it seems Firefox provides a backdoor for cross-site cookies: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-trackers?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_managing-cross-site-cookies

  • "While cross-site cookies from trackers are blocked in Firefox by default, a site may signal to the browser that it needs to use them for important functionality. In this case, Firefox will allow a third-party website to use cross-site cookies the first five times (or up to 1% of the number of unique sites you visit in a session, whichever is larger) without prompting you. After that, Firefox will prompt you to block these cookies. Without your consent, Firefox blocks these cookies from that point because a site requesting access that many times may be a tracker."

This is most definitely not what I want!

I want every cross-site cookie to be blocked by default, unless and until I explicitly approve it. Is there an about:config preference I can set to achieve this?

I´ve found out, that this Workaround seems to no longer to work since Ver. 101.0.1 (last working Ver.)

This is especially regarding Downloads triggered out of the embedded PDF Viewer in Firefox, when You click on the "Download PDF" Symbol.

Until this Ver. You could still bring back the "Choose What you want to do with the file" Window if You set the mentioned about:config setting to false (linked thread above).

I see this actually as quite crucial and almost a bug, since You will have departments with Workflows build around this. - Thank You for any insight or help

I have read hours of Q&A about this problem here in this forum before posting, and cannot find a solution.

Until very recently, whenever I would click a link in a page, it would "Open in Firefox" in a new tab. Then after reading it or printing it or whatever I wanted to do, I could click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button if I wanted to save it, and an Explorer would open up allowing me to select where I want to put it and what I want to call it (if I wanted to change the name it comes with) before downloading/saving.

Now, when I click a link it just downloads (even though most of the time I don't want that). Despite all I've read, I've tried a dozen settings, and I CANNOT get that behavior back.

If I set the browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to False, and select "Open with Firefox" when it prompts me, I can't get it to STOP prompting me. It prompts me EVERY TIME, even though I have checked the box repeatedly for "Do this automatically for files like this from now on"

And yet it is STILL downloading automatically when it opens for viewing in the new tab, and I am forever now cleaning and deleting crap out of my downloads.

I have my default PDF reader set to the reader I like, and when I'm NOT in Firefox, I do NOT want to have to right-click and select my preferred reader each time.

But when I AM IN FIREFOX, what I need it to do is

- Open in Firefox, in a new tab, 
- DON'T prompt me, just do it, and 
- DON'T download it, unless if I then want to keep it I click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button.

HOW CAN I GET IT THIS BEHAVIOR BACK PLEASE?

I can in Notepad if I want to look at hundreds of pages of gibberish that would take days to copy and paste over. In my updated Firefox it offers a Restore function but to do that I have to wipe out all my existing Bookmarks. Who dreams of this stuff? Why would anyone sane want to do that?

Foxfire behaves incorrectly when playing chess on lichess.com. This is a popular chess playing site that hosts online chess games between logged in players. When a game challenge is accepted, it presents a chess board and a clock that should start immediately counting down white's remaining time. Instead, with Foxfire, the clock starts when the first move is made by white.

The above behavior only occurs on Foxfire. On Edge, Google Chromium, and Opera, it works correctly. This is of little significance to most players, but I have observed it for a long time on Foxfire--maybe as long a two years. I have not reported it before because I can easily work around the problem. The workaround is obviously to switch away from Foxfire when playing chess on lichess.com.

Just thought someone there ought to know about this Foxfire abnormality.

Up-to-date Firefox on Windows 10 laptop. Today, for the 2nd time in a week or so, the “mailto” function has disappeared; i.e., if I click a “Send email” link on a webpage, the Windows dialogue box to select a mail app pops up. When I check the applications setting, mailto doesn't appear in the list.

The first time this happened, I found online instructions to refresh Firefox and select Gmail as the mail client. I don’t mind doing it again, but I am concerned about the problem occurring so soon after the recent refresh.
