Hello everyone,

Please test with all versions of Firefox. I was able to reproduce this consistently even after a complete reinstall or reset. For this case, ESR was checked and surprisingly it stays online even when offline mode is used upon start using profile manager. For this, you can create a new profile and start the browser in offline mode and search something in address bar. At first, you will be greeted with an offline mode message but if you hit refresh then the browser becomes online and the search results are now available. This is not just related to search results but any websites.

Hope you guys can provide some info as this is really unexpected behavior.

Thank you and looking forward to your suggestions

Test specs: Windows 7-10/Linux/Ubuntu Firefox version: ESR 102.5.0/Standard 107.0

Is there anyway to make a Hotkey for our Autoplay function, instead of having to go into Settings, each time we need the function?

In my experience, I have it set to Block both Video and Sound, but this blocks simple pronunciations, in Search or Translations. I hope there some way, a command, a mod or a setting allowing a Hotkey or Icon for Fast Disable/Enable.

Thanks for all your work and making the internet safer for everyone.

Dear Sirs,

Since mid-November 2022 I encounter a login failure issue with my Wordpress website. I get a "500 Internal Server Error" when I try to login. This happens only on the Firefox browser. All systems components are up-to-date.

I tried: - cleaning cookies and cache, - logging in private windows, - logging in the Firefox Troubleshoot mode.

I spoke with my web hosting service. They had the same issue with my website. They said that recently this issue was brought up not only by me. No solution so far.

Are you aware of such an issue? What more could I do do eliminate the issue?

I would prefer to continue editing my website using the Firefox, as always.

Best regards, Mike

I am updated to the latest Firefox. Every time I close Firefox out and then come back, it does the whole new update spiel all over again and I have to go through it and get rid of that new little weird tab thingy. If it was a one time thing, there'd be no problem but this happens EVERY SINGLE TIME since the last update. What do I do?

For the last two days websites I use all the time, like my gmail and my aol mail have a red line through the lock icon in the URL. I was able somehow to fix yesterday, not today. SURELY Google itself is not an unauthenticated site. OR gmail. And for EVERY site to be a problem is ludicrous. To expect users to know who the website owners are for contacting is also ludicrous. This actually seems to be a probelm with FIREFOX itself. So, I will begin the transfer of my stuff to another browser and stop using Firefox entirely. I have been a user for probably 20 years, and always defended it against techies telling me to use something else. Turns out they knew what they were talking about. So fed up right now...

Goodbye, Firefox.

From time to time when maximising the Firefox window, the top 20-80 pixels or so are replaced with a white bar.

It is usually possible to grab the window by clicking somewhere next to the address field, and thereby move the window downwards, alt double clicking there which set the window to "not full screen".


Right-click in any of the "white" areas - which is located inside the FF window - opens the Windows desktop menu.

screenshot 1 - "not full screen" (all is fine) screenshot 2 - FF in full screen mode (title bar vanished - replaced by white space) screenshot 6 - right-click in white space opens Windows desktop menu

Found a few reports that seem similar but not identical to this one. Rebooting the computer usually helps but after a while the problem returns. It is a rather old machine, and quite possible that this is not caused by FF, however, only FF suffers from this behaviour - any other application works "normally" (i.e. you see the title bar and buttons when the window is maximised).

Hello there!

I am a web developer and recently we built a website using wordpress. Specifically in this page https://jaotc.eu/jatc-participants/jatc-participants-jatc2/ there is an issue with the participants not showing/loading. I exclusively use Firefox for development and had no issues so far but this problem only exists in Firefox. I tried edge and chrome and the page works fine.

Maybe it has to do with some kind of compatibility with the wordpress theme or wordpress itself. If you would like to check it out and see if there is a general fix that has to be applied.

Thank you in advance!

Hi,

 I've just spent an annoyingly long time trying to do something that turned out to be really easy, it was just finding out what to do that made it seem hard.
 The issue of where search results open is completely ignored in the help pages, judging from the number of questions in Support on the issue, that appears to be something of an oversight. As does not displaying the date questions were posted, reading about what applies in an old verion of Ff may not do so in the current one, it didn't in my case.
 I wanted to know how to make the search results from Google on the search bar, open in a new tab, as opposed to the same tab, the current default setting. All it takes is changing the value of: browser.link.open_newwindow, from false to true in about:config.
 Simple to do, finding out that's what you have to do, isn't. 
 I thought I'd suggest that you might consider addressing this matter, I'm sure it would be welcomed by at least some users.
 Anyway, thank you for a great browser.

The last couple of days the Google Docs editor is semi-broken. Specifically, most of the tabs near the top have no text in them. They're just white boxes.

On the other hand, I can type text into the editor as normal.

The problem does not occur in Chromium-based browsers such as Chrome and Brave.

I'm working with Firefox on Windows, and Firefox reports it's up to date.

I've attached a cropped screenshot showing the problem.

When I snap Firefox to one side of the screen to fill half my monitor, I'm presented with so much padding that there is in fact more screen estate reserved for nothing than there is for tabs. Is this supposed to be normal behavior? I'm using a 4K laptop monitor with 300% scaling, which gave me no wasted space issues in the past.

afternoon, my keyboard is missing several keys so please bear with me. I have been having issues opening Tumblr in firefox for about a month now. I have been clearing my cache, i deleted all of my browser history and cookies to the beginning of time, and tumblr still hangs whenever i open it, going unresponsive until I forcequit from the task manager. sometimes, if I grab the scrollbar and get it away from the top of the page before it hangs, itll let me browse no issue, but most of the time it takes about 2 seconds to become hanging/unresponsive. I have not experienced this issue on any other site with the frequency that Tumblr experiences, and I cannot find any help desk information about a problem like this. I would really like to avoid moving to a different browser but its getting kind of insane how hard it is to live around it. if I have music/video going in the background, it will continue to play while Im forced to hang on tumblr, until I forcequit.

Example problems when handling PDFs, despite having "ask me what to do" or whatever set in preferences:

"Open in browser" results in a copy being saved to downloads folder, with random string filename.

"Open in [locally installed pdf viewer]" results in a copy being saved to downloads folder, with random string filename.

Quickbooks can't show receipt or document previews in the little pane. It insists on downloading it.

Gmail, Proton, and probably other email services can't render previews; same behaviour as qb.

How to fix, please? I don't even know how to properly articulate this problem, but it means half my browsing can't be done in firefox. Very frustrating.
