When opening a link from a different application, like slack, the keyboard shortcuts like new tab and refresh do not do anything, and the left click menu is empty except for the snapshot button.

This only seems to happen if firefox is not already open and the clicking of the link opens firefox.

I have a question regarding PWA support on Firefox desktop. I am not sure how to frame this correctly, but I hope I am able to list the problem statement.

Basically, I plan to migrate my existing mobile and desktop website to single PWA based responsive website. Right now, I have mobile website which is a PWA, and a desktop website. Goal is to have a single PWA based responsive website for both mobile and desktop platform. However, I want to make sure the proposed website will work with Firefox desktop. From what I could find Firefox doesn't support option to install PWA as an app with it's own shortcut as it is possible in Chrome. But I want to make sure it supports rest of the features of PWA, and website still works correctly in terms of UI and experience as in case when it is accessed from Chrome browser.

Appreciate a response on this. In case you require more clarity on the problem statement, do let me know.

Everytime I open sites like https://developers.google.com/maps and http://ruby-forum.com, and some other sites that I can't recall now, I get "Corrupted Content Error". The send.firefox.com even fails to load. I have to press "ctrl + shift + r" to reload the site, but when I am redirected to the sites (say after login), I can't press ctrl + shift + r.

Removing cache and cookies didn't help. Chromium loads the sites just fine.

When I start Firefox it makes upto 15 https:// connections to cloudfront.net and something else. I altered the about:config and did this as shown in another post, but to no avail browser.selfsupport.url. double-click it and change its value to a blank string Here is a sreen grab of the connections I get on start-up, sometimes it takes about 5 mins before I can use the internet. (I have almsot the slowest connection in the UK, at 0.03 MB/sec, 34kbps), so this would only slow down a fast connection for a matter of seconds. I live high in the mountains with no wi-fi and only an old copper phone line to carry my signal.

I installed Facebook Container add-on, after which I couldn't even open the Facebook page in Firefox and in Chrome. I first disabled the add-on, then removed it, then uninstalled Firefox and installed it again (restarting my computer at each operation). The problem is not solved. The message I get that there is an error loading the page - as if there was no internet connection.

If I type in the URL for Twitter or Gmail and press enter, the address bar simply goes back to whatever was in there before. This is whether I do it in a tab or a new page. BBC News is fine. Facebook is fine. Gmail and Twitter were pinned as tabs before the update. Other tabs are broken in the same way, e.g. Google Photos, but Google Calendar and Google Drive tabs are fine. Please help!

I have returned to Firefox after a long hiatus. I imported my bookmarks from Chrome and recreated the bookmarks toolbar. After clicking on each one, most of them populate with their favicon, but a few do not. Any idea why? The icons do appear on the tab. This is a brand new installation so I can't imagine that clearing the cache would help.

I only have 1 browser open, but in my task manager, it shows 11 instances. some times when downloading, it came to a complete stop and it jams the internet. I can't even get Chrome and Edge to browse anything. I had to force Firefox to stop and it kills my downloads. it did not do this on the previous version of Firefox, but this latest version, it does that. currently on 74.0 (64-bit). 2 questions: why do I have this man instances opened? Why is Firefox freezing and blocked the internet connection? Once Firefox is force to end task, other browser is moving.
