Firefox removes the exceptions after every update and they have to be manually re-added. This is a very frustrating user experience. Can you please help me identify if this is an issue with Firefox that can be updated or is it an issue with some setting I have setup.

Exceptions that get reset - Cookies and Site Data, Pop-ups, Add-ons, etc.

Permissions that get reset - All of them Location, Camera, Microphone, etc.

  • Side note, the Troubleshooting Information section below has a link to share data, that link does not open in a new window. It opened in this same window, erasing all the content I had typed up the first time.

Nvidia RTX Super Resolution seems to only work very rarely or not at all compared to the Chrome version. In some instances it will upscale the Full-Screen Video. It will not interact with windowed videos at all. But it will never upscale a windowed version that exceeds the playback resolution.

Steps to reproduce for windowed videos:

  1. Open any youtube video
  2. Set the resolution to 480p or lower (as I am using a QHD 2560 x 1440p monitor)
  3. Playback the video and monitor Nvidia Control Panel to see if Super Resolution has activated.

Observation for windowed videos: Feature works in Chrome. Feature does not work in Firefox

Full-Screen and Super Resolution: I have no idea what is going on here, on very rare occasions it does work, for the most part it does not work at all. If I had to give a rough idea of when it works, I would say that it is more likely to work when Firefox has been freshly launched.

I could neither see an active change in the Control Panel, or notice anything in the video quality. Both a quality change and feedback in the Control Panel occur when using the feature in Chrome. I have tested on identical links, with identical quality settings.

I tried:

  • setting the Super Resolution Quality manually, instead of manually
  • an incognito tab

I don't know why firefox keeps oppening new tabs with this URL. I allrady tried to use the clearing function and even reinstalled the software, nothing worked. Maybe somebody can help me solving this problem, it is very annoying to have multiple new error-tabs per minute in a normal work flow. Thanks and best regards, Thomas

Not sure if this is a new 'feature' post-update but it's damn annoying. I was busily transferring some photos that I'd taken on my phone over to Firefox on my Mac. Wasn't until I went to find them on the Mac where they would normally be and couldn't find them. Bit of digging, opening up the Download 'history' on Firefox and saw "File not downloaded: possible security risk".

I can see that I can disable this 'feature' but it seems to be a global "allow". Is there any way I can tell Firefox to allow any downloads from my devices on my network yet warn for potentially insecure downloads from the web?

TIA

I use a web application that lists items in a table, which provides a link to download the table as a CSV file. It used to work fine in previous versions of Firefox. However, in the current version, while the file save dialog defaults to a filename that ends in .csv and CSV is selected in the "Save as type:" drop-down, the data in the file that Firefox actually saves is in XML rather than CSV format. I don't know in which version of Firefox this behavior changed, as it's been a couple years since I tried to use this feature. Or I suppose it actually could be a new bug. I do know that when I use the same feature in Microsoft Edge, it saves the CSV file in the correct format, so this behavior seems to be peculiar to Firefox, rather than anything wrong with the web application.

The RAM usage increases, from 1GB to 40GB+ within a matter of minutes of starting Firefox. I have not added any extensions in months. I turned of several with no improvement. I have 6 tabs opened. Firefox has crashed several times the past couple fo months. I have been away on travel for 2 weeks, and today the problem is much worse.

Firefox (37916) 51GB, Extensions (34308) 370MB, GPU (33072) 298MB , and everything else < 100 MB.

I really love Firefox - use across my 4 devices. Only on my desktop am I seeing this. Laptop, iPad, and Android all work fine. Running Win 11

Hello,

First time posting here, so I'm hoping that someone can help me out.

I'm encountering a very odd issue on my Macbook Pro running MacOS Sonoma 14.4. I am unable to access two sites – allrecipes.com, and seriouseats.com on my home WiFi network on the Macbook.

These sites work on other browsers (tested on Safari and Chrome), and they also work on my iPhone.

Oddly, when I went to work and tried to access these sites via WiFi using Firefox, I was able to.

I am unsure what the problem is – the ability to access these sites on Safari, Chrome, and my iPhone at home suggests that it's not a network issue. I haven't encountered this issue with any other sites.

I am attaching three screenshots 1) The error message that I'm seeing for allrecipes when I attempt to access the site 2) The security tab which shows that the connection is unencrypted for allrecipes (home network) 3) The security tab showing that the connection is encrypted for alrecipes (work network)

Thanks
