I noticed that websites in my main firefox profile began showing the time in UTC rather than following my timezone.

privacy.resistFingerprinting and privacy.resistFingerprinting.testing.setTZtoUTC are set to false

Other profiles follow my timezone, so I would imagine that this has something to do directly with my current firefox profile.

Thank you

I still have not had any improvement with tab crashes especially on sites containing videos. Lately, every time i go on Facebook and play a video reel, i stop the video and before i can return to my home page, the tab crashes. This browser has gotten worse rather than improving.

While this note is probably the wrong way to ask for help for which I apologise, I am moving from Seamonkey to Firefox and Thunderbird. I have managed to get Firefox to work but don't know how to get my Seamonkey e-mail moved to Thunderbird.

If some kind soul could point me to a place or person where I can get detailed instructions on moving my e-mail from Seamonkey to Thunderbird, I would be incredibly appreciative. Again, I know I am probably asking this question in the wrong forum, but I have tried everything I can think of with no usable result. I ask that whoever reads understands getting up in years is frequently a difficult process. Oh yes, I go back to the early Netscape days as a user.

Thanks, in advance, for any and all assistance.

Firefox won't update to version 127 on macOS 10.15.7

I am running macOS 10.15.7 and Firefox won't upgrade past ESR v. 115 to the "regular" version 127.

Alternately, downloading the Firefox v. 127 installer and running won't update ESR v. 115 nor will it import bookmarks or data from the previous version ESR 115. Firefox v. 127 installs and starts as if I am a new user without any update or import option so that all previous settings, passwords, and data from ESR v. 115 are lost.

Is there a work-around for the upgrade to keep continuity, settings, bookmarks, and data when migrating to v. 127? Thanks!

Hello! A year or two ago I ran into a problem. While Firefox is checking for an update, it does not load any sites. I have to wait about 5 minutes each time before I can start using the browser. It is incredibly annoying. Has anyone encountered this kind of problem?

I'm hoping to get some help with disabling the Insecure connection password warning in Firefox version 115.11.0.

In previous versions, I could disable this warning through the about:config settings. However, I couldn't find the specific setting (security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled) that was mentioned in some online resources.

I understand the security risks involved in disabling these warnings, and I only intend to do this on a trusted website on my local network.

Could you please advise on the best approach for achieving this in Firefox 115.11.0, or any alternative solutions to manage insecure connection warnings for trusted local sites?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I cannot begin to express how frustrating this change is... and I struggle to comprehend why anyone would introduce this by writing it into software, but I'm sure it has something to do with money and profits.

There was a time when you could do a search and get a list of results, and then view a specific listing, and then return to your search page and view another listing. however, those days are evidently gone, as now when you return to your search page, it's slightly different results in a different order. Most are there, but some are missing entirely, and the ones that remain are varied slightly. Whaaaat for!? It is truly a form of torture.

Now in fairness I can't tell if it's the browser (Firefox), or the search engine (Duck Duck Go), because I am unfortunately not a developer. However, whatever is causing it should be fixed out of a sense of social responsibility to the greater good.

If anyone knows why this happens and knows how to fix it, I would be sincerely grateful if you shared the solution.

My Firefox browser recently updated to 115.11.0esr (64-bit), and now embedded videos won't play, I can initially see a picture, but instead of starting to play, the screen turns dark green and I can only hear the sound. This happened once before recently, but then it seemed to fix itself after a week or two. How can this be fixed?

Hi thanks for clicking.

I'm on Linux, Zorin OS, which is Ubuntu based if I'm not mistaken, very new to Linux.

Anyway, I've made a userChrome.css and done some changes I like to Firefox. It has been working fine until I tried to change the tab bar's overflow shadows when there are more tabs than there is space in the bar.

The rest of the css edits I've made in userChrome.css works fine but this overflow shadow reference Firefox just doesn't grab. I can live edit with the Toolbox and then it works fine, but when opening Firefox as default this css definition is as if gone.

Image 1: after live edit with Toolbox Image 2: before live edit with Toolbox Image 3: my userChrome.css

What can I do to fix this?

In numerous cases i have found not to be beneficial when website's search function is activated on Ctrl+F keyboard shortcut and where is better to use regular Firefox on-page search instead. I think that the good site has search button/area visible so i can use it when needed.

So please how to disable Firefox's search (Ctrl + F keyboard shortcut) to activate website's internal search? I want to always use regular Firefox on-page search that i now trigger by left Alt (to show the FF menu), click Edit menu, click Find in page.... (since Ctrl+F is occupied by website's internal search).
