When copying data from a site which contains a long list (= one requiring scrolling down), any list item which references a large jpg file causes the site to reset to its top when editing of that file is completed.

Firefox should have an option which holds a long-list file at the item most recently edited or copied. It is bothersome and unnecessary to keep scrolling down a long list every time a complex copy or edit is performed.

Example: https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Charaxes is a typical long list. See the figure for Charaxes boueti, for an example of a figure which, when copied as a jpg, causes the list to reset to its top.

If an edit option is not added, at least ALL edits of a long list should keep the edit location displayed. Currently, this holds only for editing of simple images, not complex, multi-item images requiring jpg formatting.

Hello everyone,

whenever I play a video in fullscreen mode, the system panel is not visible on the other display.

For example, the fullscreen video is playing on the secondary display, while on the integrated one there are no windows open. If I click on the desktop, the panel will be shown again but the focus won't be on Firefox, so I can't control the video with my keyboard.

Is there a way to change this behaviour? I've already tried tinkering with the settings in about:config but I couldn't find the solution.

Hi,

I am using the Firefox browser. I can't log in to my LinkedIn account for 2 days.

A red warning pops up and says "an unknown problem has occurred. try later". And for this reason, I can't log in to my account. Previously, I was able to log in but not surf because my screen was freezing.

This time I do ctrl+alt+del and exit Firefox.

Any other websites work properly.

I need your help with this problem.

I am currently running Firefox 96 on windows and for the past many builds of firefox over the past 8 months ebay listings in the item description are compressed. I am attaching an example image of the compressed description. It does this on both just plain text or formated descriptions. If I reload the listing it will correct it to full width. I have tested this on another machine that is also using firefox and same issue.

I have also disabled all extentions and cleared cache and uninstalled and reinstalled firefox with not luck.

Any suggestions as this is a pain.

Thanks!

Hello,

I am deploying Firefox to Windows 10 devices using Mozilla's latest template and I want to enable HTTPS-Only mode under "Privacy & Security" when I deploy Firefox using Intune. I have gone through all the options available here, but I did not find such an option.

Firefox is deployed and it takes other customization and settings changes I make. Which means my admx file is working fine.

If the option to enable HTTPS-Only mode via Intune using admx is not yet possible, I would like to know if there is a way to deploy HTTPS-Everywhere with the option "Encrypt All Sites Eligible" ON.

Thanks.

Hi! I want to move a user's Firefox profile to a new computer. I had them log in on the new workstation so Windows would create a new user profile for them. Then I had them open Firefox, so it would create the new Firefox profile, and then close it, so I could transfer the Firefox profile from the old system. Now, in their Firefox Profiles folder on the new system, \\NewWS\c$\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, I see two folders. One of them is "something.default-release" and the other is "somethingelse.default". I was expecting one folder there, so why are there two? And which one should I use to receive the profile from the old computer? The OS is Windows 10 and Firefox is v.96.

About a month ago, I started having a problem where all pages on YouTube randomly stop loading. It does this with no rhyme or reason and usually for around a minute at a time. It just hangs until it abruptly starts working again. Occasionally (like if I try to log out while this is happening), it will give me an error saying I'm "offline", even though I am most definitely not offline. During this time, all other websites (Google, Wikipedia, Hulu, etc) work fine, so I know it's not my Internet. Other than that, it doesn't give me any errors.

I am using a MSI laptop on Windows 10. Oddly enough, YouTube loads properly in incognito mode and in Windows Edge, but clearing my cache and cookies, disabling my extensions, and updating Firefox to the latest version didn't solve the problem. I even enabled each of my extensions separately in incognito mode while YouTube wasn't loading in a normal window, and each time YouTube loaded properly in the private window while simultaneously not loading in the normal one, so I know none of my extensions are causing the problem. Restarting my computer also didn't do anything. This problem persists when logged in or out of YouTube, no matter the account.

I reported this issue to YouTube back on December 29, but it hasn't been fixed. I also made a post on the YouTube Community a few days ago, but I didn't get any helpful answers. Any help would be appreciated!

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)

[Update: This works correctly with HTTP/2 disabled, so it is somehow HTTP/2 related. Firefox's partner is terminated with ATS 8.0.2, so this is most likely an interaction with Traffic Server, but debugging help is still needed.]

I recently upgraded from Mediawiki 1.31 to 1.35 on Debian 10. Since this upgrade, attempts to log in with Firefox are impossible -- Safari and Chrome work fine. Firefox 96.0 displays the attached error "Secure Connection Failed" but no security error is provided. This seems to be a defect in Firefox, but I am having difficulty diagnosing further.

Looking at both server trace logs as well as the Firefox debugging tools, I see Firefox does an expected POST request to the login page:

 POST https://newwiki.convivian.com/mediawiki/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&returnto=Main Page

The MediaWiki server replies with a 302 Found and redirect to the Main Page on successful login, but Firefox considers this response insecure on some way that is not indicated. The "Security" tab in DevTools shows no security errors on the transaction.

I am able to reproduce this on multiple machines running Firefox 96.0, as well as with Troubleshooting Mode enabled. No errors occur with other tested browsers.

Is there a way to extract further debugging information from the browser?

Since I upgraded to v96.0 I have been getting this error message every time I open Firefox. I read another thread that suggested I alter...

    browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes

...to zero (0) in "about:config". However, I'm guessing this change basically turns off this functionality, which I wouldn't want if the browser actually crashed. However, this doesn't seem to work at all, either on the network "Data" folder or the local "Data" folder, so Firefox has become very annoying to use.  :-(

I have two (2) data directories (which, of course, contains my profile) for firefox; one on my local machine and one on the network. I normally use the network data directory and only use the local one if I'm traveling. I haven't used the local "Data" for three (3) months, and it worked fine for two weeks. As a test I activated the local "Data" directory (I renamed "Data" to "Data_network" and "Data_local" to "Data"). I got the same problem so I'm sure this has to do with the latest upgrade to v96.0.

My settings, which have always been set like this, are:

 + I have "Open previous windows and tabs" un-checked.
 + I have "Choose what you see when you open your homepage, new windows, and new tabs." set to "Custom URLs..." and my "Homepage and new windows" is set to my home page URL.

Any thoughts?
