I am trying to edit /etc/hosts file. CLI utils respect the values that provided there, Chrome also.

But the Firefox continues to ignore. I have disabled "Enable DNS over HTTPS using:" and turned it off.

But it doesn't help. What else could be done?

I discovered two issues with Firefox on my Wayland Gnome. Picture-in-picture windows should be opened with the "always on top" attribute, but in Wayland they are not on top. It's not a big deal to manually set always-on-top. Although I need to remember to do this after the window appears. The second problem is related to selecting multiple tabs. I should be able to detach selected tabs from the window by dragging them from the tab bar. A new window is then created with the selected tabs. This doesn't work in my Wayland. I can detach one tab, but not multiple tabs at once. I can still move multiple tabs from one window to another open window. So, as a workaround, on Wayland I need to open a new window and then move the selected tabs there. Which is inconvenient. I am curious if anyone else noticed these things on Wayland. There might be something wrong with my instance of Wayland.

Having tried all pointers to how to display this data, I give up and present my case here: In a banking app, the login field is blank and requires me to enter the correct Login ID. This works fine. However, if I double click on that field, an option is displayed, happening to be my email address, which will not work in this case; a numeric value is required.

So, knowing a prompt is enabled, I have entirely failed to get 'it' to save the correct ID. I have also find a place in Firefox settings where I can see and modify the value that comes up. I do however remember doing exactly that for some other site.

So, as I have said, I cannot find this in the Passwords nor the Settings pages. What am I missing?

Help would be much appreciated.

When I try to use the Criterion Channel and several other websites that use cyberlocker video services, I get an error with no code (attached screenshot). Here's what I have tried to solve it with: - VPN - Clearing cache - turning off all extensions that target ads, pop-ups, and tracking; and making sure Firefox itself isn't blocking tracking - using the user-agent switch extension to pretend I'm on a different browser The last one makes me think it might be a Windows 10 problem and not a Firefox problem, but I'm just covering my bases.

I've always liked the Firefox New Tab page, with Pocket, and until today, DarkReader plugin has always worked. But now it says that it can't because the page is protected.

I tried the solution to use bookmarklets, suggested in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1350781, but it didn't have any effect (https://sanketmehta7.github.io/DarkMode-JS-BookMark/

If I can't find a solution, I'll just ditch Pocket, and use Google as my first page, or something. Or maybe ditch Firefox, which doesn't seem to think that dark mode is important. I don't like being blinded by the light.

On chrome I have several profiles and different ones use different LastPass (and other) extension services. EVERY PROFILE maintains it's OWN login information.

Firefox, however, does NOT ISOLATE PROFILES. On ANY Firefox profile, if I log into LastPass EVERY PROFILE is forced to use THAT information- even going as far as logging out and logging into the OTHER profile's information/account. This is 1990's level idiotic.

WHY are profiles SHARING LOGIN INFORMATION!? This is entirely stupid and defeats the entire purpose of multiple profiles.

I had this happen with Facebook logins, too... WHY does ONE profile FORCE OTHER profiles to change their login information?! WHY ARE THEY NOT SEPARATED?!

How do I solve this?!

it is the SINGLE biggest reason why I can NOT switch to Firefox again. Chrome does this. Chromium does it. EVERY Chromium browser does this. 10 years ago Firefox did this... and I left it when it QUIT doing this... when it BROKE profile separation.

Why is this STILL a problem?!

Is there any way to make Firefox show the "back", "forward", "reload", "bookmark" buttons that are shown in the default context menu when right clicking a web page also in the context menu that is shown when right clicking an image?

I think those buttons should always be included in all context menus opened for a web page, no matter if you happen to click on the background, on selected text, on an image or a link because.

It is so frustrating having to open the context menu multiple times to find a location where the default context menu is opened instead of the specific ones for selected texts, images, links etc.

Thanks!

Macos Ventura:

Greetings,

When I started getting msgs saying my browser was no longer supported, I checked my version. Firefox says i have v115esr and that it is "up to date" - i.e. no update available at this time. I assumed I was getting the brush off from those web sites.

Why did Firefox not bring me up to v124? I get a "download update" probably once a month. It's been giving me a new variation of 115esr all along.

I've now downloaded 124 from your site. What do I need to do so that I stay current in the future? Thanks John

I use Firefox in French... but lately, the contextual menu when right-clicking on a web page shows in English. The contextual menu when right-clicking on the Menu bar or Bookmarks toolbar, is partly in French, but with a section in English (the Menu bar)... sometimes, the Menu bar switches to English (I can't seem to isolate what makes it switch or switch back). Other menus show in French and setting for language is set to French.

For the past few days when I have tried to log into a few websites which use TLS/SSL I have gotten PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR. Please see the attached screenshot for more details. This issue was observed ever since I updated to Firefox version 124.x. Prior to that the websites were working fine.

When I try to access the same websites and try to log into them using Microsoft Edge, I do not face a similar issue. They work fine.

I have cleared the browser cache, restarted firefox, and then tried. Still faced the same issue. I have cleared the DNS cache of Firefox browser (about:networking#dns) and then tried. Still faced the same issue. I have opened Firefox in Safe mode (Menu > Help > Troubleshooting mode) and still faced the same issue.

Can someone please help me in fixing the issue? I would like to refrain from using MS Edge or chrome browser.

I installed one of the ad blockers, I can't remember which one. It's given me so much trouble that I thought to disable or delete it. I deleted the little icon ( a stop sign) that shows up on the far right of one of the menu bars (don't know the name of that bar but here it's the second one down). But websites still complain that I have an ad blocker. I've gone to 'add-ons and themes' but I can't find it. BTW, what's the difference between an add-on, a plug-in and an extension? Which one of those are ad blockers? How can I see and then delete whichever blocker I still have? Without the icon I can't even disable it for individual sites.

Firefox does not appear to be using my Mac's default DNS resolver when DNS over HTTPS is disabled. Here is my setup:

- I'm using Firefox 124.0.2 on macOS Sonoma 14.4.1. - DNS over HTTPS is set to Off in Firefox. - My Mac is configured to use a DNS server that blocks some domains, such as facebook.com. I have confirmed that this is working correctly by using the dig tool on the commandline: "dig facebook.com" receives a "status: REFUSED" response with an empty A record. - When I navigate to facebook.com or other domains that should be blocked in Firefox, they are resolved. My expectation is that they should fail to load and a DNS error should be displayed.

What I've tried:

- Confirmed via GUI and about:config that DNS over HTTPS is completely disabled in Firefox. - Cleared Firefox DNS cache via about:networking. - Confirmed every way I know how that macOS is configured to use my custom DNS resolver and that the resolver is refusing queries for the specific domains I expect to be blocked.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions anyone can provide.
