I entered my Mozilla password in Firefox after signing into a Barnard College / Columbia University library computer. I do this several times a week. This time there was a new problem, which I think is a bug.

After I entered my password, I was asked for Duo verification. I made a mistake and entered the verification code for a different app. I was told to try again. I entered the correct code and got an error message that I had tried too many times and to try again later.

I made one mistake. On my second attempt I entered the right code. How is that "too many" times?

Question: Columbia and Barnard send a message for Duo approval when signing into their computers. I think that's easier. Can Mozilla and Firefox be set up that way?

thank you

Whenever I try to download anything, it automatically fails. The problem just started recently and I don't know what could have caused it because I haven't done anything that could affect downloads to my knowledge. Things I've already tried are

  • Reinstalling firefox (including full uninstall via "Revo Uninstaller"
  • Updating firefox to the latest version (127)
  • Disabled all firewalls
  • Chose the save location
  • Disabled all parental controls in windows
  • Chose the "don't enable HTTPS mode" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1414064)
  • Tried firefox & windows safe mode (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1442742)
  • Chose a different save location inside my computer (a folder other than downloads)
  • Cleared download history
  • Ran a chkdsk on windows

The thing is that everthing else of firefox works (browsing the web, watching videos, etc), it's only the downloads. It's also not a computer problem I think because I can download on other browsers (such as chrome and pale moon). Any help asap is appreciated.

Hi!

I'm confused by the latest upgrade of Firefox (Version 127.0). It gave me the option to create a new profile or Exit when starting it. So eventually I went for creating a new profile and now my old one seems lost. This is not what I wanted.

When using my shortcut on the taskbar, which I've used for years, it suddenly complained I was using an old version of Firefox. This has not happened for me in decades. I've lived with the Firefox installation on this computer for a very long time and it has smoothly upgraded in the background until now. So what is going on now with this upgrade? Is it a major new version of Firefox that doesn't migrate a current profile?

Hi folks,

I run a server which is ONLY accessible from my own IP address. I have a particular script on that server which deletes certain log and temporary data files at the end of a job run. I have a problem where those files being deleted WITHOUT me visiting the page !!

Somehow Firefox appears to be randomly visiting that page all on it's own, without a window or tab open which is then deleting the files at the wrong times without me doing anything.

I have put some tracking in the script and the http request is DEFINITELY coming from my IP.

The user agent is being reported as: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/115.0

The page address is not being recorded in my browsing history.

How is this happening ? I only have 2 extensions installed: Tab Reloader and UBlock Origin.

Is there a way to track ALL activity that Firefox is doing so I can trace where this is coming from please ?

I'll point out that to my knowledge, this is ONLY happening on this specific page on my own server and not anywhere else that I am aware of. All my other scripts on that server have tracking as well, but none of them have been randomly run.

I need to track this down as right this moment I have the original script renamed and I'm having to use £%~£%&{ chrome to run it as I cannot trust FF NOT to run it !!!!

Any help would be appreciated.

My Problem: When I open any Dropdown for my Favorites (including the Bookmarks arrow on the left) it leaks past the Firefox Window and behind my Windows toolbar (When Using DisplayFusion only, more on that later). Some items then become unreachable: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-06-15-08-17-53-5a6e2c.png

This does not happen with the settings dropdown. It correctly stops at the toolbar: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-06-15-07-57-17-2e5d8a.png

What would fix the problem:

  • The behaviour of the Favorites dropdowns should be the same as the Settings one in my opinion.
  • I would be fine with dropdowns staying inside the Firefox Window at all time.

Note on the cause of the problem: Using the default Windows ToolBar makes the dropdown go OVER the ToolBar: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-06-15-08-17-14-bc7e78.png

However, I am using a software called DisplayFusion that overrides Windows ToolBar for extra features and customization. The dropdown goes behind DisplayFusion's toolbars. I will also ask the devs on their side for a solution but I still think the dropdowns behaviours between Settings and Bookmarks on Firefox should be the same.

Thanks!

Good day!

After the last firefox update, there was a change in the way screenshots are saved. Specifically, the file names are the same, only for some pages they create them uniquely as it was before. I am sending an example of a name (Screenshot 2024-06-17 a[...]) that is the same for different screenshots and therefore I always have to rename it. Before the update, this never happened, each screenshot had a unique file name, so it was saved without the need to enter a file name.

I use this feature very often and i find it very annoying to create file name and it is very impractical and time consuming. Can it be set somewhere? Or what should I do. I really like this function of firefox and I don't use another browser because of it. I don't even plan to, because I think it's the best browser and has a lot of great features. This is one of them and I'm really disappointed that it got worse with the update.

Windows 10. Have used Firefox for years with no problem. Out of the blue, when Firefox is invoked, it comes up, but the screen dims after a few seconds, an the hourglass appears and Firefox freezes at that point. I have to use Task Manager to close it. I tried uninstall and that failed. Then I manually deleted the Firexfox program files. When I tried to install the program from Firefox, that failed as well with a window that pops and says there was a problem. Then the install window freezes (!) and again I have to resort to Task Manager to stop the program. What to do to get Firefox running again? Thanks. Bob Ochsman ochsman@gmail.com

Several months ago, I couldn't log in to my Yahoo email accounts. For reasons yet to be explained, the two step verification ended up with a message saying they were having trouble, and try again later. No amount of waiting for later worked.

Maybe what I'm asking about now is unrelated, but yesterday I tried again. When I go here Yahoo | Mail, Weather, Search, Politics, News, Finance, Sports , and select either of the links

I am directed here link text

link text

Instead of here (these came from Chrome)

Welcome to Yahoo Mail

https://i.postimg.cc/c45Qp77L/yahoo5.jpg

When I use that url in Firefox, I am taken here

link text

If I try to add a Yahoo account in that situation, it becomes clear that IS only for adding other other AT&T accounts.

I tried using about:support - Troubleshooting Information to clear the startup cache, and in safe mode, but it did not help.

I talked to ATT&T. They have been having these sorts of Firefox related problems for months now, which they have reported to Mozilla month ago (which confirms my past troubles as well), but for whatever reason Mozilla hasn't acted on it.

But here is the weird part for me. Aside from my main profile, I have a Firefox "basic" profile. It has no addons, but It has basically the same settings with my main profile, and, because it hasn't been updated in a while, I believe it has most of the same about:config tweaks as well.

In that profile, It 'Yahoo works '. What could constitute a difference between this starter profile and one that's running in safe mode to create this problem. Can you think of an about:config tweak that could be responsible for all this?

Do we have any idea whats causing this.

I haven't downloaded anything recently (at least not that I know of) and for the past two days now every time I open up firefox, the search bar and images glitch white. You can't see what you're typing and when you go to images on google, all of it turns white. It happens to every website I go to, certain things turn white. Doesn't happen with Chrome, just Firefox. I've cleared the cache and data on it but that doesn't do anything. I've restarted my laptop and tried to make sure it wasn't my laptop that was the problem. I'm nervous to uninstall and reinstall cause I don't want to lose my passwords saved here.

Hello,

I was editing a fillable PDF document in Firefox, which I had saved repeatedly (saved over existing file) as I was making changes.

After a crash, I selected "recover session" and the document was open but was now empty. Another document I was editing, which was not open in Firefox but was being saved to a separate file, did not experience the loss of data entries.

Would anyone happen to know the reason for this issue and whether there is any way to recover the data?

Thank you.

I regularly play Bejeweled Blitz on FaceBook but I cannot use Firefox to play because if I try I get the message to Upgrade to the latest version of Flash. Well Flash has not been used in many years but I still get that message on Firefox. I can easily play on three other browsers without receiving that message. I have switched from Firefox for that reason but I really would prefer Firefox as my default browser. What can I do? Yes, I am using the most current version of Firefox 127.0 (64 bit). My extensions are AdBlock+, Gmail mail checker. That's it. The same thing happens in troubleshooting mode too. I am using Windows 11. Please, suggestions are welcome.
