    And now available in the (*)Ubuntu repository, so on Kubunu I updated to Firefox 95.
    As the release notes say "Site Isolation is now enabled for all Firefox 95 users", and as it was not enabled before, now on Firefox 95 I checked about:support and about:config:
    about:support shows Fission Windows 1/1 Enabled by phased rollout
    about:config shows fission.autostart true

    How to customize Firefox UI - step-by-step tutorial

    Firefox is the browser you ought to use. And if you use it, the experience should be visually and ergonomically superior. To that end, here's a tutorial showing how to make visual and ergonomic changes to Firefox's user interface, covering user profile, userChrome CSS file, Browser Toolbox, overview of common visual elements like tabs, address bar, search box and others, practical examples focused on the Firefox Proton interface, and more. Take a look.

    Hi Mrk,

    These tutorials of yours for customizing Firefox are practically revolutionary :) I used the interactive guide from a link you posted in your August 16 guide of this year to customize Firefox, and even used it to disable Recent bookmarks:

    no longer needed since several versions. i never used it and all working as expected.
    the important part marked. windows users became it in nightly and beta before all other OS, linux since beta 91. now its final

    rlbox jumped now into windows after appearing in v74 for linux and v75 for osx

    Since about a week I have symmetrical 1000 Mbps (down/up) fiber internet.

    The stand-alone Ookla Speedtest App in Windows 10 shows >940/940 Mbps, but running the test via their website in Firefox 95.0 (64-bits) does not go over ~300/200 Mbps (even with a fresh/clean profile).

    What could be causing this huge difference?

    Maybe try running the test again on speedtest.net using a different browser for an "apples to apples" comparison.

    I don't understand what's happening with my Firefox 95 - only on my Windows11 Laptop.
    When I try to add a VPN proxy, it can't find if on Firefox's add-on web-site.
    It can't find IVACY on that add-ons website.
    It can't find VPNUnlimited on that web-site.
    If I google it, then, I get a strange message from that Firefox add-ons website.

    Here is my Firefox version.

    And currently, I don't have ANY ADD-ONS installed on Firefox.

    P.S. I'm so happy I have Osiris.

    You are correct.
    I've refreshed my Firefox and decided not to implement that "How To Restore Your Privacy On Firefox guide".
    https://restoreprivacy.com/firefox-privacy/

    I've just revised two settings in the "about:config" area - webrtc and webgl.
    Now, my Firefox is working properly.

    z, those two prefs have nothing to do with the issue you were having. as @Brummelchen noted above, it must be some other custom pref related to user agent string .

    I have refreshed my Firefox and adjusted only(!) two prefs in the "config" area, instead of several recommended for "privacy issues".
    Those two, webrtc and webgl - the MUST ONES - have nothing to do with my Firefox problems, but some other "privacy recommendations" (by that web-site I was referring to), were messing up with my Firefox.

    the major problem about such "privacy" or "firefox security" pages ist that they only tell half on the truth.

    eg privacy.resistFingerprinting not only changes that behavior, it makes firefox misbehave in opening maximised, it also changes user agent

    this is firefox 95 using this pref, result is (current major ESR as usual)
    but no issue on AMO because the real UA is exposed (v95)

    i did not try further. those given settings are suspicious and dont raise security, in fact they make you more special (more unique) to the web.

    Firefox 95.0.1 is available on archive.mozilla.org.
    No official release announcement yet.

    Issue with certificate error on Microsoft pages seems fixed. :)
    Code:
    MOZILLA PKIX ERROR OCSP RESPONSE FOR CERT MISSING
    This was due to an 8 year(!) old bug.
    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=966856.
