I am constantly annoyed by the ever present "notification" to update Firefox to the latest version. There is no easy way to get rid of the nagging notice. PLEASE NOTE ::: I DID DOWNLOAD AND UPDATE MY PC TO THE NEWEST VERSION WHICH DID NOT LIKE AT ALL !!!!

So, I returned to the latest version I had been using and all is well. EXCEPT : I AM CONSTANTLY NAGGED TO UPDATE. WHICH I DID, DID NOT LIKE, AND DO NOT PLAN T DO IT AGAIN.

You need to add an option for user like me who have done what you asked and did not care for the result. IF YOU THINK PEOPLE WILL LEAVE, PERHAPS YOU ARE RIGHT ... IF YOU GIVE THEM THAT CHOICE. I PREFER TO SEE THE CHOICE TO KEEP WHAT i HAVE AND NOT GIVE IN TO THE LATEST WHIM. So, if your product is so good, why not let us decide to stay with the version we are using and not be nagged into a new one we will not like. If your product is as string as you think, you should be able to give the user that choice! D. CHAPMAN ANGERS, FRANCE

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.

On this page with an Atari emulator, I am unable to use its controls that use the Alt key, such as Alt+P to pause.

It works with another browser, or with a fresh profile.

I've tried disabling add-ons and trying it again, but it fails even after disabling each of them. It also doesn't even work in troubleshooting mode, and that seems kinda odd?

It may be some modified settings in my Firefox profile? Though if it is, I don't know what settings, nor how to fix it. What sorts of settings are retained even in troubleshooting mode?

I was checking to make sure I was using the correct version of Firefox browser. I ended up on a page that stated "It looks like you haven’t started Firefox in a while. Do you want to clean it up for a fresh, like-new experience? And by the way, welcome back!" It went on to ask if I would like to Refresh Firefox, just like it was brand new.

In the Menu option on any Firefox page I can get on it states: "Account Disconnected". I have been using Firefox just about every day for 3 years. What is going on. I didn't dare click on the "Refresh Firefox" tab because I have no idea what will happen. Will I lose everything, bookmarks, settings, etc.?

Please help

I use FF all day, every day and recently it stopped automatically logging me into my account when I open the browser. I've read through the other posts on this topic and tried everything from creating a new profile to changing the History settings. Unfortunately, none of the solutions provided have worked. I know it's only one password to type in and then my profile is synced and it retrieves my bookmarks, saved logins, etc. but it's very annoying to have to do.

Does anyone else have any other potential solutions?

FF Slides Windows Taskbar On Open, Issue Reopening Last Session

I was having an issue where FF wouldn't restore my tabs on start. "Recently closed tabs" wasn't available, and when choosing "recently closed windows," 2 - 4 new windows would open, along with one which had the previous session tabs.

I noticed in the task manager that FF wasn't actually closing, so I started using "exit" in the FF menu. Now, even after a computer reboot, when I start FF I see a number of windows open and close quickly, along with a identical "copy" of my windows taskbar sliding in from the left to the right, and "replacing" the current one. I had to record my screen to be sure that's what I was seeing. After the "extra" windows flash open and closed, the FF window with the previous session tabs "slides in" with the "new" windows taskbar.

This does not seem normal to me, as my Windows taskbar has never move before unless I moved it. I'd also like to be able close FF without exiting through the menu, or having to reopen and close several windows if I forget to. This behavior is the same in when I start in safe mode as well. I've never synced FF, or signed for that, and I ran malwarebytes and gotten nothing. Is something wrong here?

I've never synced FF, or even signed ti gor that, and I ran malwarebytes and goettn nothing.

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

I use Yahoo mail within Firefox. Just recently it has changed so that if I select the download option, to download any attachment to an email, it will either open (if say a PDF) or ask me where I want to save the attachment, but then the tab the Yahoo mail is open in will close once the attachment has opened/saved. Before, I could download/open/save or whatever and the Yahoo mail tab would remain open (as I would expect it to).

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Hi all,

since the last firefox update I am not able to visit the german Amazon Seller Central website anymore. I have no knowlegde in how to solve this issue and that is why I am asking for your support.

The link to the website is: https://sellercentral.amazon.de/ Whenever I want to visit the site, I get the error "HTTP Status 400 – Bad Request" (see attached image).

I already checked with amazon themselves, but they said the issue lies within my computer. My IT department said the issue is related to the browser most likely; and indeed, with Microsoft Edge for example, I am able to open the website.

Does anyone know this error and even better knows how to solve the problem?

Thanks in advance!

Greetings:

First experienced: Friday, Sept 2, when using burpsuite/foxyproxy during a hackerone CTF.

When using other Vbox instances on the same computer I have the same issue. This issue is usually easy to duplicate when using dev-tools or by simply doing an image search and moving the mouse across the images.

Host: Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS 5.15.0-47-generic #51-Ubuntu SMP Two different VGA controllers are present: Intel CometLake-S GT2 AMD/ATI Ellesmere Radeon RX

VirtualBox: 6.1.34_Ubuntu r150636 (Qt5.15.3) VirtualBox VGA: VMware SVGA II Adapter

Guest: Kali 2022.3 rolling 5.18.0-kali5-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Debian 5.18.5-1kali6

Crashes have seem to involve input from the mouse and scroll function within the browser. Once, let us call it a glitch, the crash can either take place while continually moving the mouse around the browser's page or immediately outside the page with the mouse. The "glitch" is a coloration, usually pink or lime-green with characters printed to screen and then disappears. I have been unable to predict when the glitch will happen, thus no screenshot to help.

Steps I have taken:

Googled on the problem which led me to learn about the Firefox about:crashes function.

Viewed about:crashes -- seems to be a Renderer issue linked to llvmpipe or Mesa?

Checked basic system logs for host and guest for anything evident: syslog, kern, Xorg, messages, dmesg, daemon, journalctl.

Used Firefox troubleshooting and extended troubleshooting.

Installed Firefox 104 with same issue.

Reinstalled VirtualBox.

Search on Firefox Renderer issue [from crash report]

     I turned off performance settings, still have same crash issue.

Last Report ID that did not fail to upload: bp-740acc47-0ed4-44a8-851c-ff21b0220905


Ultimately, I am unsure if this is a Firefox, VirtualBox, or Kali Linux issue, but Firefox is the one that this issue is having a severe impact on. My head is spinning at this moment due to all the logs and information I have digested over the weekend.

I appreciate any efforts in helping me decipher what is going on!

Respectfully,

Steve

Hello, I just built a new PC and have a fresh install of Firefox.

As seen in the image, the default 'search' that I type into the address bar is trying to go to a webpage (the web/globe icon) I would like it to default to search, (like the magnifying glass icon), rather than having to press the down arrow to get to it.

I had this functionality on the old computer. Curious how to get it back. Thank you.

I am a new Firefox user. From the very beginning I am having such an issue: macOS has "Now Playing" item in the top of the screen where the menu bar is located, but Firefox does not work properly with it. The only interaction is available is Play/Pause. However, Chrome and Safari work well with this menu bar item, I can both see the timeline and rewind the video. For some reason it does not work in Firefox.

I should say that the problems also occur while using the touch bar. There is also a "Now Playing" item and there is also the only interaction available.

You can see in the picture I added that the time dash does not even move while the video is playing. The problem is the same on any sources.

I am using Apple Silicon version btw.

I am using Mozilla Firefox, ver. 102.0.1, 46 bit, snap for Ubuntu 22.04. I have two issues with saving files in Mozilla.

First, when I try to save a pdf using the CTRL+S key, it open multiple (~100) instances of save dialogue box. Initially I thought my computer got freezed, since pressing the save key didn't had any effect. I tried to move it using the CTRL+SPACE key -> Move option, and then I realized there are many such save dialogue box are open. How to rectify its behavior?

Second, it downloads the file only in system created folder (e.g. ~\Download, ~\Document, ~\Pictures, etc) and not other user created folders (e.g ~\Dropbox, etc.). The dialogue box for saving file closes without giving any warning/error message. When I check the file it is not downloaded (in user created folders). Can there be any permission issue?

I have already reinstalled the Mozilla once!

Hi! I recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox and Im liking it aside from this one thing. When Im watching a video in full screen, moving the cursor to the top doesnt pop up Macs top bar (File, Edit, ..... battery, time).

This sounds like a banality but I mainly watch videos while getting ready, working etc, and I really need to see the time! Im used to always keeping the cursor at the top to see it. I searched around in settings and forums but didnt find any fix. The only solution seems to be to not use full screen which I think we can all agree just sucks in a major way.

Im using MacOS Monterey 12.3.1 and Firefox 102.0.1. Is there a way to fix this or nah? Any info much appreciated!

Hello.

I freshly installed Windows and therefore Firefox, I backed up my Profile folder before doing so and I moved my logins.json and key4.db files to the new Profile of the fresh installatio. But my passwords don't show up in Firefox Saved Passwords, the files aren't corrupted as I can see my data when opening the logins file on Firefox, but the passwords are all encrypted. I have given up hope that firefox will recognize the passwords (I have created new profiles and moved the json and db file there multiple times, refreshed the browser, installed and older version, none of them seem to work for me). Is there any way to decrypt my passwords outside of Firefox? Or is there a fix to this problem that I am not aware of? I have searched the forums for hours, and people who decrypt the files outside of firefox seem to do it in ways that I am not capable of doing so (coding ,etc)

Would really appreciate any help as this is driving me crazy.
