When I click the reload button or press CRTL+R, I expect firefox to return to the top of the current page and reload the current page.

But lately (a few months now) firefox does not return to the top of the page, it stays at the position that I'm currently viewing and reloads.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode by holding the shift key, and it still shows the same problem. I even tested this on another computer (not mine) with the same result.

If this is a new feature of firefox, can I turn it off?

thanks

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Lately, when I try to create a desktop shortcut from the Github website, it instead create a folder, with the correct title of the page, and what looks like a link inside, with an abbreviated website name, but is not a shortcut at all.

Example: Try dragging the address bar padlock from this page to your desktop

Welcome to Refined GitHub!

Same thing happens when I try to drag its bookmark to the desktop.

Creating the shortcut from Chrome works properly, so I assume this is a Firefox problem.

I like the idea of putting Facebook related pages in a container. Why Firefox does not automatically open a new tab/window for this container so that only Facebook would loose track of my browsing history?

How I can adjust Firefox to always open containers in a new tab/window and leave the original page intact on its tab?

I can — If I would always remeber — open the Facebook related container on a new tab. Why this could not happen autiomatically, or happen based on my container settings? it seems all I can adjust is the colour of the bar above the tab.

I other words: What is the advantage of me too loosing connection to my browsing history?

Yes, there is a workaround: I can open the container in a new tab if i recall to do so — and yes — I can open "history" and find the page leading to "facebook" from there, but would it not be so much easier, if I could have it done automatically?

Hello, This issue may be related with "[meta] Implement URL parser per URL Standard", opened 9 years ago(!), but updated only 1 month ago (bugzilla). If somehow applicable, just let me know that my issue is already being taken care. Thank you.

D&D a Firefox URL into Windows File Explorer, may fail. Just try it for yourself (Firefox for Windows, version 102):

Will fail (notice the additional folder created): D&D on this URL will fail

Will fail and may even create an invincible 0 byte file (Windows is unable to delete it...): D&D this URL will also fail

Won't fail: D&D this URL will *not* fail


I only noticed this wrong behavior in version 102.0 (Firefox 64-bit for Windows) but, as I use this D&D functionality quite often, I don't believe this problem to have occurred much before 101.x. Only tested it in Windows though (Windows 10 Pro - 21H2 19044.1766, 64-bit). This thus seems to be a BUG introduced in version 101.x or 102.0

By trial & error, I think I eventually found out what is leading the D&D to eventually fail: it's related with the web page title (i.e., the Firefox tab title). This behavior has nothing to do with the URL value itself.

When D&D an URL into File Explorer, the URL shortcut name is supposed to be created with the webpage title. However, Windows filenames have some unsupported characters: \ / : * ? ” <> |

So, I guess Firefox should first parse this title and remove all these unsupported characters (or replace them with, e.g., “-“), before assigning the title to the shortcut name (a .URL file). Which, as I understand it, is not happening anymore. I have not found any issue with the URL value itself.

In fact, the D&D result may vary, depending on the characters the webpage name includes.

If it contains a “/”, it will create one (or more) Windows folders before creating the URL shortcut. E.g., if I D&D a webpage URL into “C:\my URL shortcuts folder”, with title “CAT5E Shielded 3/50μ Gold-Plated”, it will create a shortcut (with the correct link) in C:\my URL shortcuts folder\CAT5E Shielded 3\50μ Gold-Plated.URL Obviously, even though the URL content is right, this is not the expected behavior!

More troublesome can be a webpage title that contains a “:”, because it creates a 0-byte no extension file which sometimes (but not always) refuses to be deleted by Windows. E.g., if I D&D a webpage URL into “C:\my URL shortcuts folder”, with title “ShinobiHub – Article: How to Update”, it will create a zero-byte file in “C:\my URL shortcuts” folder with name “ShinobiHub – Article” (no extension). Trying to remove the file in File Explorer may display the error message: “Item not found. This is no longer located in <PATH>. Verify the item’s location and try again.”

[BTW, after some digging I find out how to remove the file: Just open a DOS window and type: del "\\?\C:\my URL shortcuts folder\ShinobiHub - Article " No need to restart or do anything else, just need to put \\?\ before the directory when using the del command. Also use the tab button to make sure the name is correct; sometimes a space is added at the end that can be easily missed.]

Strangely enough, a “Verified by: Cloudfare” (or something similar) is also display just below Firefox Url.

I’m not sure about the effect of other different unsupported file name characters. Anyway, this was tested in 2 different Windows computers, both with same faulty results. The same operation in Chrome works as expected.

Conclusion: This issue should be easy enough to find but I could not find any *recent* report on a similar issue. That makes me wonder… is this really a bug?... Please help. Thank you. Cecilio

GCI.com is a service provider in my area. I have only an Email account with them. At the Login of my Email account,the Firefox Browser 'displays an extra old w98 pane .' This is at the Secure Log In where you enter your Web Mail Pass Word.

I configured my Windows 10 Firefox proxy to use system proxy settings, and I have a script can based on different network environment modify the system proxy autoconfiguration script address (HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL) in registry to update the proxy settings. Internet Explorer works well - new proxy configuration usually become effective in 1 or 2 minutes after the change. However, each time after my script changes the registry proxy address (without FF restart), I have to go to Firefox Tools->Settings->Proxy to manually change it to another value (in my case it's from "Use system proxy settings" to any other value), confirm it, and then change it back. Then FF is able to reload the autoconfiguration script to make it work. This is really a headache.

I just wonder is there a way to notify FF to reload the proxy autoconfiguration script address from registry from command line so that my script can trigger it automatically after the registry is modified?

Thanks.

Drag-drop bookmarking broken, Firefox 102.0 (64 bit)

I do not know which update began exhibiting this apparent reversion bug, as i have just returned home from several weeks in the hospital due to a heart attack, and do not know how many updates i missed.

When doing a drag-drop of a URL from either a link on a page OR the address line at the top of the browser, I will receive a "sanity failure" error, ranging from an empty NON-URL file, to an OS error complaining about being unable to access an attempted directory destination.

If the link I am dragging is bereft of illegal characters (i.e., ":" -- a colon), the action will succeed.

If there IS a colon, the text to the LEFT of the colon will become the filename. The colon and everything to its right will be truncated. And, the file will be a zero-byte file of unknown (to me) type.

Other illegal characters in the page's Title field will produce more dramatic misbehavior.

PLEASE revert to the previous behavior (i.e., filtering the Title before creating the filename for the bookmark file)!

Earlier versions of Firefox (again, I do not know when this began) NEVER exhibited this behavior.

I can't stand Microsoft Edge. It's a CPU and memory hog. However, I must resort to using it when I watch a video from VUDU on any of my workstations. According to the fine folks at VUDU, Firefox is not supported in HDX or 1080i mode when using the VUDU site. According to the info that shows when you launch VUDU on a Windows device (in this case, Windows 10 or Windows 11) using Firefox, you get a message that the video is only supported in SD or 720 dpi mode. To get anything above SD mode, you have to use Microsoft Edge. Is there a developmental issue preventing such use or is this a limitation forced on Firefox users because Microsoft does want you using anything but Edge?

It's just a bit frustrated to have to use MS Edge instead of my default browser, Firefox. For the record, I just checked to be sure. There's a marked difference in resolution between Firefox and Edge on the same video.

I can't get to the same payment page, to be in a position to delete it.

Most links on this matter refer to:

However in my Version: Firefox 98.0.1 (64 bit) running on an up to date Windows 10 this feature is missing or deprecated.

Can anyone say how I could edit/delete this specific entry, or point me in the direction of where this data is stored?

In the mean time I can't recommend using Firefox for entering critical security data, where websites can allow the storage of CVV numbers.
