I wanted to check a Hertz reservation. I typed Hertz into the Firefox bar at the top and selected the first entry that had the Hertz logo followed by https:\\www.Hertz.com. I clicked that entry and only a white page came up. I tried reloading and nothing happened. Eventually, I opened a new window and again typed Hertz in the bar. This time i scrolled way down and found a google symbol next to the word Hertz. I clicked that and it worked. How can I automatically search with Google so that I don't have trouble accessing sites?

FF updated to 88.0.1 and I don't get any pocket articles on start up or new page.

I check about:config and both pocket setting are set to true. I disabled it and enables it a few times and still issue persists.

My other PC did the same update and no issue on that one. Settings are the same in about:config.

We use the Guest User to login to checked out iPads to students. We are using Macbook Airs with the M1 chip. When trying to use Firefox I received the error message "you don't have permission to open the application". I received this message for Google also. So I uninstalled both apps under my admin login and reinstalled with the latest versions. I also updated the MB Air to the latest Big Sur version. Google was able to load without a problem. Firefox on the other hand will not load. It bounces once in the dock and then doesn't continue to load. I logged back in with my Admin user and changed the permissions to see if that worked and Firefox still won't load. So I tried to lower the Security setting for the MB Air and that also did not work for Firefox.

Any suggestions on what else to try?

Thanks in advance.

I have been having a slight on going problem with Firefox lately. Where the PC will freeze with CPU load pegged at 100% for several seconds between watching videos or when an ad pops up while watching a video(normally I run uBlock, but I disabled all add-ons), but this is random and wont happen on at times. I am currently using Waterfox and have 0 issues, but Waterfox is not supported fully for Amazon Prime Video.

I have done the common things such as updating to the latest release, reinstalling the browser, refreshing the browser, disabling all add-ons, updated drivers, disabled hardware acceleration, reinstalled windows but the issue does seem to be persistent.

Even after a clean install of Windows & an install the latest Firefox the issue cropped up.

I did use Firefox's performance recorder to capture When viewing under ""Waterfall"" The main large recorded events are DOM Event and when expanded has Promise Callback When viewing under ""Call Tree"" The largest event is MediaSource.isTypeSupported

I did save the recording so it can be viewed as I do not understand the details.

I know this is not a hardware issue as I also duel boot LMDE4 and have 0 issues using Firefoxwhen in Linux and if it were a hardware issue I would expect to have problems in linux as well as when using Waterfox in windows.

I have stress tested my GPU and have had 0 issues. I can upload the Performance Recording if needed.


My Hardware is. i5 6600K 32GB 3000Mhz RAM GTX1080 1TB NVMe SSD.

So I have several accounts logged-in in Gmail:

/u/0 <- my main one /u/1 /u/2 /u/3

... but in Youtube I always used my /u/1 account, I have all my playlists there, etc.. and I want to have my /u/1 logged-in there as the main one while I also have my /u/0 as the main one in Gmail. I come from Opera and I didn't have any problem doing this, I just log-in in the desired order in Gmail, and then I log-in in Youtube with the account that I want. But in Firefox it links my gmail with my youtube, so if I log-out my /u/0 in youtube, it also logs out from Gmail. So when I put the /u/1 on first place in youtube it alter the order in my Gmail and /u/1 becames the main one.

How can I set it up correctly in Firefox? it is not a Gmail/Youtube problem, but a Firefox problem, since I can do it as I want in other browsers.

Thanks.

MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit)

All recent Firefox versions have killer bugs.

A new one was actually trying to login here. The error message said 'Cookies must be enabled' and I couldn't get further. Cookies *were* enabled! I shut down Firefox, and re-opened, and all was then OK.

. Web pages with scripts are often completely blank. . Pop-ups are often blank. If not they often don't work, like (critically) Ebay login. . View source (CMD U) works for new pages. However doesn't update if the source page changes.

 I do use <CMD U> from the changed front page.

A silly one is that the keypress to 'Copy Link' was deviously 'A', but not shown. It has now changed to 'L' and still not shown. Why? I very much prefer Firefox, and all the many shortcuts are memorised (well bar 'L' (8-)# )

However I so often now have to use Safari or Chrome to get around the bugs. This is a pain as the interfaces are different, and specifically 'View Source' never has a shortcut key. They also have their own bugs!

Dear all,

I recently have a problem with the Bitwarden Addon (1.49.1) and Firefox (88.0) on Windows 10 with my Surface Pro 7.

When I activate the the addon the window pops up and when I then tap on something in the window, for example, the settings or the field for password entry, then the extension closes.

This happens only in touch mode, when I tap on the windows. When I use a mouse or a pen it doesn't close.

There are some workarounds like open the addon in new windows or opening the virtual keyboard from the tray. But it has worked very well for a long time. Also in other chromium based browser it works still.

I contacted the Bitwarden Support and they could reproduce the problem, but are not able to fix it, because it has something to do with the particular environment for the add-ons in Firefox.

Is there something in the settings, which coud fix the problem or is it possible that it will be fixed in another update?

Best regards,

Sascha

There used to be header and footer settings in the older page setup option for date/time, page of page, etc.

Now you have to change where you want this in the about:config. Would be nice if this option was in the print settings dialogue.

This is more of a request than an issue. As I was able to change how I wanted the pages to print using the about:config method and setting up the header and footer there.
