Every so often while browsing, for several FF versions, now, hover card functionality on some sites will simply stop working, even after a complete browser restart. Eventually the cards come back on their own.

Not a crucial issue, frankly, but an annoying one, and I'd like to know why it keeps happening and what can be done to stop it.

I am finding more and more sites that I regularly go to are no longer working on firefox. One site was because HTML5 apparently does not work on firefox. But others I don't know about why are no longer working on firefox. I thought it might be streaming related but just today I could not access one of my banks on firefox, and I tried many times, but had no problem signing on using Chrome.

I have a full current installation of Firefox, after a struggle to get Bing off my system (Win11) I briefly got back to a personalized start page which had a large text "Firefox" heading and allowed me to add apps in small boxes and click to start an app. That page has disappeared and all I get is the ad referred to in the title. How can I replace the ad with the page I can load with app icons?

Hello, I'm a web developer. I'm using the Firefox Developer Edition and currently working on a project that requires caret manipulation. I have this function right here that fetches the caret's client rect: ``` function getCaretRect(): DOMRect | null {

 const sel = window.getSelection()
 if (!sel || sel.rangeCount === 0) return null
 const range = sel.getRangeAt(0)
 const rects = range.getClientRects()
 if (rects.length === 0) return null
 return rects[0]

} ``` Here is where the issue arises. Suppose I have a contenteditable div with two line breaks (no new lines), and the second line is smaller than the first one. If the caret is positioned somewhere that is further than the end of the second line, and I press the down arrow key, then left, for some reason the caret rect I get has all values set to zero, like this: `{ x: 0, y: 0, width: 0, height: 0, top: 0, right: 0, bottom: 0, left: 0 }` I will add an image to explain further.

I don't have this issue on Chromium based browsers, but cross browser support is important for me.

There is one more issue to do with caret manipulation which is how contenteditable divs are handled. On a Chromium based browser, if I have a parent div that's contenteditable, then another div that's not contenteditable (contenteditable="false" explicitly), then two children divs which are both contenteditable (or more), I can navigate through the divs freely using the arrow keys and focus is managed better alongside event handlers. This is not present on Firefox, however.

If this is not the right place to ask for help then please guide me where is more suitable.

In Firefox, after a reboot, how can I re open my previouse sessions?

Originally I had quite a lot of open browsers & tabs. Then I needed to do a reboot, and now I've lost those previouse sessions.

Usually I just open firefox, and this opens one browser, and then all of my previous browser, and tab reopen, but this time firefox crashed, and its popup said it needed to restart, but it would re-open my previous browser and tab, but it didnt.

After following the usuall firefox help giudes, it still wouldn't re open my previouse sessions. Now if I ask it to open my previouse sessions, it just opens the recent help giudes, and not anything before the crash.

So is there a backup file of myu missing sessions that I can roll back to?

I can no longer use my camera on firefox, firefox displayed some message about camera when we were trying to chat, but I missed it, I have granted relevant permissions on the site, that we use reularly. The camera icon on the address bar appears red, and I noticed that in Windows security, it lists firefox access requests, but shows no way to grant these requests.

I am not tech minded so please if anyone could keep it simple, I would appreciate it.

Hi,

I'm switching from Edge and have a frustrating issue.

In Edge I am very used to having separate behaviour for links with left and middle click.

i.e. from Gmail, if I left click a link it opens in a new tab and switches to the tab, if I middle click a link it opens in a new tab but stays on the current tab

In Firefox both seem to be controlled by the single setting.

I have looked in about:config and tried changing a few flags but cannot seem to find a combination that works how I want it.

Can anyone help?

This is a real dealbreaker for me and I will switch back if there's no solution :(

TIA

It started this morning (6/23/24) the page for a YouTube video will load but the video doesn't play. I have cleared the cookies and cache, shut the browser down, restarted the computer, turned off all the extensions, and have turned off hardware acceleration. Nothing has changed, I can watch other videos on Firefox and Youtube work as normal on other browsers. Last night (6/22/26) before shutting down may computer for the night I had an update for Firefox and shut the browser so it could update. The image is of what the video section is displaying.

When I used to take screenshots, they would be automatically named with the date, time, and part of the text captured regardless of language. A few days ago and with no reason I can discern, it now saves any non-English screenshots with something like this "Screenshot 2024-06-23 a[...].png" instead of "Screenshot 2024-06-22 at 08-02-28 Politics Policy Polit[...].png" (usual for English text and what I used to get with all languages).

Which means I have to manually rename screenshots. Does anyone know how I can fix this because I am working on a project with lots of screenshots for topics from different languages?

As a longtime user of Firefox, I had a nice setup where after the start page, clicking on the Firefox icon would take me to a page headed "Firefox" in large letters. On that page I had placed the icons for my frequently used programs. Each of the small "icon boxes" had menus that would allow entering a URL so that when clicked, the desired app would open. I was exploring MS Bing, mostly because I like the pictures they put up each day. It looks as though a "new Improved" version of Bing brings along the new MS AI component. Together they seem to have removed my Firefox setup or hidden it where I can't retrieve it. By using Firefox settings, I was able to remove the Bing URL. Good riddance!, but can I retrieve my page of links to most-used programs? I don't know where to look for that. If I have to reconstruct it, how is that done. Or how can I start a replacement. Sincere thanks, Greg Schultz

Hi,

I need to take part in a course that is delivered via moodle and that employs SCORM videos.

After some modules I am experiencing an issue where firefox does not load them anymore. When you try to load a module a spinner appears and stays there indefintely.

Initially, trying to reload the module could eventually unblock it. Now this is not possible anymore. Disabling the enhanced protection does not change the situation.

The modules work just fine with chromium.

Having firefox being a stopper for online learning resources is a real issue. Any help will be appreciated.

Is there a way to set a separate theme for the private browsing option? I like being able to visually distinguish between the normal browser and the private one, but enabling a theme seems to set the same visuals for both.

Thanks for all your time and effort.
