Hi,

I don't know if this crash has only happened on other Macs or not but here's my report:

After updating Firefox to the latest update and I tried opening a Google Slide in presentation mode, the whole app crached!

I tried deleting FF and reinstalling it but the same issue happens again!

You send me to pages in a foreign language. For example,I clicked LinkedIn, and it's in a foreign language.

When I click to go to a page often it's in a foreign language that I can't understand. I speak English. My only language setting is English.

Sometimes you send me that "Prove you're not a robot" that's all in characters like Chinese. I cannot understand it at all. I like Mozilla, but may have to use Google to get some work done.

Sometimes I use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) because I handle bills and finances online. Both myself and the IP address of the VPN are in the United States. I never do anything that involves foreign countries.

I would prefer to be using Firefox rather than Google Chrome, but, my devices when all being logged in with the same account will not all sync as they should be. They will also be synced, but then they would loose their connection with the other ones. The sync should be that when I would simply log into the browser that it would automatically sync using the login information the same easy way it is done in Chrome. I have kept using Chrome, because of the fact that the sync is able to work across all devices simply by logging in for the sync to work & it will work properly to where all of the browsers that would be logged in would be synced, no issues whatsoever. How can I actually login to the sync on everything with there not being any issues of any kind across all devices?

My Firefox browser (92.0.1 64-bit) has been very slow.

And, the "GO back" history does not work well with some Yahoo pages (like, Finance, email...), it keeps fill in the current page each time when I move the page down and up and thus prevents me from being able to go back to the previous pages.

Thank you in advance for any kind assistance on this.

Reference #18.14223517.1632679189.e95c39


I've tried some of the "solutions" on Firefox's help pages, but nothing helps. Starting Firefox in "Trouble-shooting mode" doesn't help, and some of the posted "solutions" don't even apply to the current version of Firefox.

Sometimes I have the same problem if I use Google Chrome, but the problem is worse with Firefox.

What's going on? How do I fix the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hi! I do Duolingo on a daily basis. Many/most of the tasks comes with audio, and then... the tab changes size - to show a "Playing". A short time after the sound has stopped, it will change back. I react every time, and it is very disturbing. I really don't need to have such information in the tab/window, because I usually/always hear when Firefox is presenting sounds. I want to find somewhere to turn that "notification" off. Is that possible?

Yesterday I went to my history to locate a prior site I had visited. There was only 1 site in history, which of course surprised me, and it was to CapitalOne.com/link accounts. This is my credit card company. I removed Firefox from my Macbook and then re-downloaded Firefox and installed. Nothing has changed. My settings are correct, meaning that I should be able to have sites visited in history, yet only the one site populates, and I've been to a lot of sites today....the credit card/link accounts site is the only site that is in history. You can imagine how nervous I am right now about doing anything on line. I sure hope that someone will help out here.

I work with text a lot in the browser. In Chrome, I can select a piece of text, then press Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down arrow to select paragraphs above or below the selected text. Also in Chrome, I can press Ctrl+up/down arrow to move the text cursor one paragraph above or one paragraph below when I type. But in FireFox, the combination ctrl+up/down arrow duplicates home and end. Tell me how can I assign actions to these keyboard shortcuts to work with paragraphs?

New Tab via Ctrl+t Behaves Differently If Current Tab Hasn't Loaded

My normal process for opening a new tab is to press Ctrl+t and start typing the URL I want, then press enter once auto-complete shows the correct URL.

Sometimes I want to open a bunch of tabs at once, so while the first tab is loading I'll press Ctrl+t again and start typing in the next URL. If I wait until the page has started loading this works as expected, and the new tab opens with the cursor in an empty URL bar. However, if I press Ctrl+t immediately after pressing enter, the new tab's URL bar will contain the URL from the previous tab.

I can't always reproduce this reliably, it only happens when I'm working really quickly and I usually don't notice until I see that the URL bar contains both the old and part of the new address. It may also be more common with websites I haven't visited recently, I usually encounter it when paying bills which happens about once a month.

I've noticed that Firefox becomes less and less comptatible to websites as time goes by. My last example : https://www.registreentreprises.gouv.qc.ca/

At first, I thought it had to do with the privacy features and all, and still think it does somehow. Some features just won't work, websites don't show some parts, etc. My first reflex until a few months ago was to try accessing later, maybe something is wrong with the website now and will work later... Later I end-up using Edge. Now my reflex is: let's check if it works in Edge... and it does! This is becoming worse; reaching the wanna drop Firefox all together point.

Websites are working perfectly in Edge or Chrome, but not Firefox. Firefox is no longer showing up as "approved" on most websites. Why is that?

As a long time user of Firefox, and monthly donator, I'm starting to get feed-up with this increasing problem. I don't have time and should not have to debug Firefox as a user. I just want to browse the internet, nor make a statement to the world that I believe Firefox is the purest. Browsers should just work 100%, that's it.

Please fix this.

Manage Exceptions button for cookies is not working for me since FF88 or 89, don’t remember which version precisely. I click on the button and the dialogue box that would normally appear to set exceptions does not pop up. Moreover it looks like when I click on the button the user interface on that tab freezes for a period. My FF profile is customised. I know if I start with a blank profile the issue goes away. I have another that works fine. However I would rather try to fix this issue in my current profile. I poked around in about:config but so far have had no success.

Any ideas? I searched google but could not find anything. Also checked mozilla bugzilla a while back without success. I am using FF 92 on Arch Linux.
