Have Firefox blocked this and/or are there ways users can protect themselves?

"14 new types of 'XS-Leak' cross-site leak attacks against modern web browsers, including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, and Mozilla Firefox."

"These types of side-channel attacks are called 'XS-Leaks,' and allow attacks to bypass the 'same-origin' policy in web browsers so that a malicious website can steal info in the background from a trusted website where the user enters information.

"The principle of an XS-Leak is to use such side-channels available on the web to reveal sensitive information about users, such as their data in other web applications, details about their local environment, or internal networks they are connected to," explains the XS-Leaks wiki.

For example, an XS-Leak attack could help a background site siphon the email inbox contents from an active tab used for accessing webmail."

12.4.21 FFox 78.15 mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6

Had single user admin setup using FFox for years. Once I set up FFox years ago, I long forgot what my email sign in was, of the three emails I have.... aol, yahoo and gmail.

Recently a file corrupted. Apple techs suggested opening second admin as test user. Test user admin worked fine. In process of testing, I discovered FFox in THAT tester admin opened differently.... no more Bookmarks Toolbar, no History Trail.

One Apple tech suggested looking into 2nd admin (test) account to see my sign in. It was AOL acct. I did not select a sign in acct. I simply opened FFox browser to test it. Went back to 1st acct (original) and FFox signed in with Yahoo acct. I never realized this. All those years had been opening through Yahoo acct.

Apple tech said all I needed to do was switch AOL acct back to Yahoo sign in to once again see all my previous Bookmarks Toolbar and History Trail. I've spent HOURS searching how to simply switch accounts in same admin browser. Why is something so simple, impossible to find. Perhaps it can't be done.

The closest I came was to do this - click upper right corner (3 lines) in browser and click on email address > click Acct settings > click Manage acct. When the Accounts page appears, I see only a Primary email entry (AOL) with no options next to it, and below it, Secondary email (which says None) with button next to it indicating Add.

When I click it, new window appears asking to enter Secondary email address. I enter yahoo address, click SAVE and red box appears saying "ACCOUNT ALRERADY EXISTS" I KNOW THE ACCOUNT ALREADY EXISTS. IF FFOX KNOWS THIS, WHY WON'T IT ALLOW ME TO SWITCH TO IT?????????

That's as far as I can go. Even signing into the Sync acct asking which account to sign in with, I use Yahoo but next time I open FFox, still back to AOL.

I will say, once I was in my 2nd test admin and opened Chrome to test as I did FFox, Chrome AUTOMATICALLY updated to same Chrome from 1st admin (corrupted) which included same Bookmarks etc from 1st admin Chrome.

But not so with FFox. Not so.

If there is anyone on the planet who may have knowledge of how to simply switch sign in account from AOL to Yahoo, I would LOVE to meet that person. Thank you!

Following approach to show video stream via Media Source Extensions (MSE) works well in Chrome, Edge, Opera but not in FireFox:

Media Source API


mediaSource = new MediaSource() sourceBuffer = mediaSource.addSourceBuffer(myCodec) sourceBuffer.mode = "sequence" sourceBuffer.addEventListener('updateend', function () { UpdateEndHandler(self); }, false) sourceBuffer.addEventListener('updatestart', function () { UpdateStartHandler(self); }, false)

and in the events UpdateStartHandler and UpdateEndHandler is processed the value of - sourceBuffer.buffered.end(0)

The problem is that FireFox often returns the same values for UpdateStartHandler and for UpdateEndHandler event which si not correct because into sourceBuffer.appendBuffer were appended real video data. Chrome, Edge, Opera returns two different values.

Please help.

Another beginner question: How could I let the developer tools show me all javascript accessible functions of the textarea I'm right now writing in?

I could bet that was possible before updated some days ago. (I wasn't doing anything programming and developer tools for some months, so I seem to have forgotten a lot.)

I know I could iterate over the object by self written javascript, but isn't that overview available directly in the developers tools?

Hello Team,

I have seen this process: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Data_Collection#Requesting_Approval

I am helping to manage Firefox (policies.json) for the large organisation/company. We do currently have policy with DisableTelemetry=true and would like to enable it but: - would like to have access to it - would like to execute some Data Science activities on that telemetry

Is that possible ?

Seems that tools like Looker, GAD or Measurement Dashboard of Firefox Public Data Report are showing only global statistics while we are interested in looking at "our" statistics only (around 100K endpoints).

Thanks, Michal

I run Thunderbird on an email-only system which I can access from LAN or remotely.. I "ssh -X" to that system and run Thunderbird, which displays on my workstation. Until an update a few days ago, when I clicked on an http/https link in Thunderbird, if there was an instance of Firefox running on my workstation, the link would open in a new tab on the most recently accessed Firefox window. If there was no instance of Firefox running on the workstation, then Firefox would be started on the email-only system, which would display on my workstation. After the recent update, the behavior has changed: clicking on a link always opens Firefox on the email-only system, not a new tab on the workstation.

Running Thunderbird 78.14.0 on Centos 7.9 email system, Firefox 94.0 on Fedora 33 workstation.

Any suggestions on how to have the previous behavior?

I am using a newish FF profile for my usual web browsing and I also have another FF profile (from an older computer) which I only use for one purpose and that is to look at my recently deceased partner's facebook (FB).

My issue is, I accidentally deleted my partner's FB account from the FB log on page and now have no access to that account. I was hoping by restoring my "other" FF profile I could restore access via cookies etc.

Is there any way i can do this??

Testing ConvertKit integrations with my Squarespace site across multiple browsers. Firefox (v94.0.2) doesn't show the embedded ConvertKit form in the footer. I also have the ConvertKit form embedded in a sidebar, and while Firefox shows that form, it doesn't initiate the correct response (a 'thank you' that shows up on the sidebar when someone signs up); instead it pops open a new browser window with the thank you message.

I uploaded 2 images; one shows how the form should act on the sidebar after subscribing (screenshot from using Chrome) and the other shows how Firefox handles the subscribe. The Chrome screenshot shows Sign Up For Our Newsletter and a Success! message below it. The Firefox image shows that the form response takes me to another web page with multiple messages.

Any ideas what's up? should I advise visitors to the website that the form does not display correctly on Firefox?

Thanks -
